confused about moon phase
By:
Post # 1
So i was reading about to moon phases in the articles section. I read "The moon is the mother of the universe." What i'm wondering is how is that? I mean the universe is endless and has other moons, galaxies, the universe is so big it shouldn't be our tiny moon's child. I do acknowlege our moon as our mother, but how could it be the universe's mother?

It is just a figure of speech; like saying the Sun is "father" moon is "mother",of our immediate "universe".You are taking the word too literally, and also mistaking the Universe for the Cosmos. Our universe is the Sun and the planets surrounding it.The Cosmos is the vast number of Galaxies in the rest of space. Most scientists would agree that our Sun and Moon created Life (together with water!) on this Earth.In that sense they are often referred to as father and mother.

However the moon is related to the women in many ways so it could be the other reasons like the 28 days cycle of moon and women. The moon is calm like mother and stars which are reffered to as children shine only in presence of moon(mother) but are not dominant in presence of sun(father). Just because of these facts the moon is refered to as mother of universe

Not quite accurate,Wolf. All mammals have a menstrual cycle. The usual (but not always) menstrual period of human females and the orbit of the moon is pure coincidence.The orbit of the moon takes a little over 29 days, and so was once thought to have an influence on the human female.It is simply not true! The moon has a gravitational "pull" on the tides. Nothing else.

Brysing i said it is related to women. It may or may not be just an opinion.

What you said was "according to these facts".That can be confusing to the original poster.
