They found gravitational waves, at least they think they did, with an insane experiment involving lasers underground. What they think they found is a gravitational wave caused by a collision of 2 black holes. So the astrophysicists regard it as a huge event.
Deep in underground caves
they detected gravity waves
from black holes crashing, don't you know,
far away and long ago.
This is the second modern book I'm reading about this lost second book, but this time I am struck by an odd lack of symmetry in the outline itself. It states:
Tragedy... has pain as its mother.
Comedy... has laughter as its mother .
If you want to have laughter for the mother of comedy, mightn't you pick weeping for the mother of tragedy, especially if you're going for a theory of catharsis, since laughter and weeping are both shakers of your bodily self?
Although, it's true, for almost everyone, weeping is a less frequent experience than laughter. So maybe they are less parallel than I first thought.
Am I talking myself out of my critique?
Was my logic deplorably weak?
