EL SOL NEGRO: KANSAS CITY AND THE NATION CONFRONT INEVITABLE CHANGE AMID TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE!!!
There's a ton of great conspiracy theories about the end of the world today . . .
White guys without self-confidence have recently taken to the streets in fear over the so-called "darkening of America" and that's exactly what's going to happen today.
Moreover, the Aztecs predicted all of this long ago as part of their Five Suns creation myth which foretold thee destruction and resurrection of their civilization . . . i.e. Reconquista.
Before we discount star signs . . . Let's not forget that the Lord and Savior of most Americans had his virgin birth touted by signals from the heavens.
Either way, everyone is attempting to derive some form of meaning from today's eclipse . . . And "El Sol Negro" sounds much nicer than all of the science most people don't understand about today's Sun worship festivities.
Still, what always matters most is the story that people take away . . . And so we ask our blog community:
HOW WILL TODAY'S ECLIPSE CHANGE KANSAS CITY AND THE NATION???
Some are hoping for unity in the midst of the Universe in motion and with the humble recognition of our insignificance in the grand scheme of things. Meanwhile, factions "from all sides" tout the dawn of a new era which will bring fourth their rise to power. I suppose most people will just be working their dead end jobs and take a few moments to look toward the sky before their bosses demand their heads are pushed back down toward their toil.
Today I'm honestly curious about how Kansas City and the world view the eclipse when they're not trying to impress frenemies and strangers on social media.
If the world does or doesn't end we sincerely hope to see you d-bags on the other side of the eclipse . . .
Either way, it has been such great fun to play a very small part in a civilization that learned to harness the power of the Sun and then used it to kill and terrify one another.
