if the sun refused to shine

Ambiguum 8 is on the mutability and corruptibility of matter, including bodies, and how this corruption can lead us to seek God, the incorruptible.
Environmentalists have a more positive view on material nature and believe that homeostasis can be achieved. If enough new trees are planted and ancient trees preserved, ill effects of too much logging can be countered. But rocks erode and are blown off the tops of mined mountains – and new ones are created by volcanoes and are being lifted where plates collide. We will never get back to pre-settlement amounts though. How little is too little?
Nevertheless, the sun will probably wear out some day.
Hey there’s an Orthodox cross at the 3 minute mark.
