I have been wondering what makes me feel sad whenever I read about cloning. I realize that it is usually when I read about cloning animals that I feel the saddest and I do want to see what the difference is between the cloning of animals and plants or vegetation.
At first I thought maybe it was because I felt one day the ways of reproducing could be done entirely without a womb, and being a woman and experiencing what I have always felt to be a miracle would be lost. But thinking about it more I realized thats okay, the miracle is really in seeing new birth, that can be experienced by all. It is what I felt when I saw the dogs, a new birth, without thinking how it was they came about. It is the feeling of seeing any new births, asexual or sexual.
But when I do think about it more, I wonder more, and think of what is natural and what is unnatural. If we are part of nature, and nature has shown to re-birth but as well to destroy , then we too must have this ability. I feel nature does so in reaction to its survival, so when thinking of cloning, do we as well do so for survival, and this is what bring questions to me still. I question if we are truly at the point when all before us is unfixable, and if maybe evolution, in its meaning of change, should go backwards a bit to see if what seemed right before, before the time it was destroyed can be made right again, to see maybe the effects of this type of evolution, or are we not meant to go back, but only forward, but when I think of this I think of something I read in reading of the Age of Aquarius and astronomy, of the precession of the equinoxes, and retrogrades, and in the cycles do we really only end up where we were before. This I feel is of nature, and so part of us as well.
Explanation: Why would Mars appear to move backwards? Most of the time, the apparent motion of Mars in Earth’s sky is in one direction, slow but steady in front of the far distant stars. About every two years, however, the Earth passes Mars as they orbit around the Sun. During the most recent such pass over the last year, the proximity of Mars made the red planet appear larger and brighter than usual. Also during this time, Mars appeared to move backwards in the sky, a phenomenon called retrograde motion. Pictured above is a series of images digitally stacked so that all of the stars images coincide. Here, Mars appears to trace out a loop in the sky. Near the top of the loop, Earth passed Mars and the retrograde motion was the highest. Retrograde motion can also be seen for other Solar System planets.
