On this breezy October morn, I walk
in the swift shadows of cloud-cursing rooks,
watching the world wake on the horizon.
Leo Yankevich
All houses wherein men have lived and died
Are haunted houses. Through the open doors
The harmless phantoms on their errands glide,
With feet that make no sound upon the floors.

We meet them at the doorway, on the stair,
Along the passages they come and go,
Impalpable impressions on the air,
A sense of something moving to and fro.

Alexander Pope

Alexander Pope: Epitaph intended for Sir Isaac Newton, in Westminster Abbey (1730).

Nature and nature's laws lay hid in night;
God said "Let Newton be" and all was light.

    None need a guide, by sure Attraction led,
    And strong impulsive gravity of Head:
    None want a place, for all their Centre found,
    Hung to the Goddess, and coher’d around. ...
    The gath’ring number, as it moves along,
    Involves a vast involuntary throng,
    Who gently drawn, and struggling less and less,
    Roll in her Vortex, and her pow’r confess.

    But this problem is still pending, it causes me restlessness
    How can I apply Newton's law just locally ( small region of strong gravity ) in the case of
    - Strong gravity of black holes?
    - Strong gravity under my bed?
    And I wanna know the link between them? =))

    I'm being thick. Why under the bed? The gravity on top of my bed seems enough for me!

    I discovered a black hole under my bed @mheredge, But I will not tell you the secret how I get escaped of it, it is my own promising theory that could lead to the Nobel Prize B-)

    So that's where you hide all your secrets @science24‌. Did you find any odd socks that you've been looking for? :)>-

    Odd socks connected to the Internet (Bruce Sterling) =))

    How many spiders scuttled out of the black hole since you've started hiding your secrets there? Is it as black as the Black Hole of Calcutta?
