why Mercury retrograde might be real even when it isn’t real

If Planet Mercury's age was the equivalent of one day, the Greco-Roman pantheon from which the name comes from would have appeared only within the last one-tenth of a second of the day.

to define my spirituality

Five years ago, I, for the first time, wrote in my blog that I no longer identified with any specific religion. It wasn’t the first time I’d described my spirituality in this way. I felt that way pretty much all throughout my college years, and a brief period of time in 1996. And this has also been true since that blog post in 2014. But I have gradually felt the need more and more to define my spirituality. Even if it’s not associated with a specific religion. I am going to go out on a limb and say something radical. When you think seriously about this, you’ll realize that it is true: The time we live in right now is the most spiritually significant time in tens of thousands of years. It is more significant than during the time of Christ, Mohammed, Moses, Baha’u’llah, the Buddha, and others prophets revered throughout the ages.
