The image above shows the moon at the beginning of its first quarter phase as it appeared in the northern sky on the evening of January 16th, 2016. It was generated by NASA’s Dial-A-Moon visualization system. While the moon has traveled one quarter of the distance it will cover during its orbit, it has also moved exactly one half of the distance between the new and full moons. It will be shown in subsequent posts that halving the distances between the 8 lunar phases gives expression to a system of boolean logic of two variables generated by the dynamics of the moon’s orbit. How this relates to many different fields, including but not limited to digital sciences will be explored.
