Abstract

in Four Easy Lessons And fast by hanging in a golden Chain This pendant world, in bigness as a Starr Of smallest magnitude close by the Moon. Thither full fraught with mischievous revenge, Accurst, and in a cursed hour he hies. ... . . . [Satan] toward the coast of Earth beneath, Down from th'Ecliptic, sped with hop'd success, Throws his steep flight in many an Aerie wheele, Nor staid, till on Niphates top he lights. --John Milton, Paradise Lost, II: 1051-1055; III: 739-742 (Milton 195, 209) Things are not going well these days on this old earth of ours. We need all we can get of wisdom, insight, perspective, and "theory" (in the etymological sense of "clear-seeing") to understand what is going on and perhaps to decide to do something about it. One problem is that we are interwoven within what is happening here on earth. We are therefore perhaps prevented from seeing it clearly. We have, however, been granted for the first time in human history an ability to look at the earth from outer space--that is, from outside what is happening here. Millions of people all over the world have seen one of the unsettling
