Comments on a cultural reality between past and future.

This blog describes Metatime in the Posthuman experience, drawn from Sir Isaac Newton's secret work on the future end of times, a tract in which he described Histories of Things to Come. His hidden papers on the occult were auctioned to two private buyers in 1936 at Sotheby's, but were not available for public research until the 1990s.

Look Skyward: Watching a Hybrid Solar Eclipse

The sun underwent a rare hybrid eclipse on 3 November 2013. A hybrid eclipse shifts between a total and annular eclipse (the latter occurs when the sun and moon are in line, but the moon appears slightly smaller, creating a ring of fire around the black body of the moon). Most of this eclipse was visible from Africa. Time has published pictures of people watching it, some of which are reproduced below.

"People observe a solar eclipse in Amman, on Nov. 3, 2013."

"A veiled woman observes the solar eclipse during an event organized by the Sudanese Society for Astronomy and Space Science on the banks of the Nile river in Khartoum, on Nov. 3, 2013."

"A father and his daughter wearing solar protective glasses observe the partial solar eclipse in Tunisia, on Nov. 3, 2013."

"A Sudanese man looks through tinted glasses towards the sun to watch a partial solar eclipse over Khartoum, on Nov. 3, 2013."

"People look at the solar eclipse in Santa Cruz de Tenerife in the Canary Islands, Spain, on Nov. 3, 2013. In southern Europe the eclipse was partial."
