(15760) 1992 QB1, systematic search

(15760) 1992 QB1 is a classical Kuiper belt object discovered in August of 1992 (it was the first of its class to be discovered). It has a perihelion of 40.9 AU and an aphelion of 46.6 AU). It has an inclination of 2.2º. It has a diameter of about 160 km.

The computer's systematic search of (15760) 1992 QB1 began five years before it was discovered, when new computers allowed enough processing speed and resolution.
The systematic search by the computer, when checking the telescope data, is based on a sequential analysis that is repeated until the new object is discovered.

The main theme of (15760) 1992 QB1 is a systematic search based in a 'sequencial true-false verification', like the PIN search in the movie "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" (1991), or the sequential search at the beginning of the movie "Aladdin" (Disney, 1992). This process is called 'limit cycle attractor' by dynamical systems theory.

In the year 1991 appeared the song "James Brown is Dead" (L.A. Style) with a strong rhythm basis, but also a repeating melody that simulates industrial machinery, like the song "We Need Freedom" (Antico). In the same year also appeared "Choice" (Triliton) and "It's Grim Up North" (The Jam), with the horn of a train as a symbol of forthcoming of repetitive mechanical.

(134340) Pluto, individual evolution toward complexity

Transformation comes, like death, in its own time.
And, like death, it takes you from one dimension into another.
(Osho-Zen Tarot) 

(134340) Pluto is a Kuiper belt object discovered in February of 1930. It has a perihelion of 29.7 AU and an aphelion of 49.3 AU. It has a diameter of about 2300 km. There are prediscovery images back to January of 1927, December of 1925, January of 1921, December of 1919, April and March of 1915, and November and January of 1914. It was observed in the years 1965, 1985, 1988 and 1990. It has an inclination of 17.2º.

The moon Charon was discovered i
n June of 1978 (1200 km). Two smaller moons, Nix (60 km) and Hydra (75 km), were both discovered in 2005. Some astronomer call it "dwarf double planet" (Pluto-Charon). Eris (2600 km) is a bit larger than Pluto (2300 km), but from an astrological point of view, this binary system is very important, because Pluto is always conjunct Charon (1200 km).


(134340) Pluto aspire to perfection like in the movies "King Kong" (1933, 2005) and "Superman" (comic 1932; movie 1978). Is concerned with evolution by eliminating the low aspects of personality and developing the high ones, from complex emotional interactions, quite turbulent, which are not always visible from the outside.

The end result is a maturation process, like in the video game "Brave: The Search for Spirit Dancer" (PS2, 2005) or the characters of the TV manga series "Dragon Ball" (1986). 

After (134340) Pluto's transformation, personality is more complex: more differentiated, but at the same time more integrated.

(32532) Thereus, tame of wild groups

(32532) Thereus is a centaur discovered in June of 1995 and rediscovered in July of 1999 and finally in August of 2001. The orbit is arround Saturn, but gets a bit beyond, entering into the Uranus influence. It has a perihelion of 8.5 AU and an aphelion of 12.7 AU. There are prediscovery images back to July and June of 2001, August, July and June of 2000 and June of 1998. It has an inclination of 20.3º.


Greek mythology 

The centaur Thereus was a hunter, who captured bears and carried them home, alive and struggling.

(32532) Thereus has a strong ability to control and dominate rebellious elements, like a film director (theatre) or a teacher in class with students uproar. This centaur reminds the movies "Training Day" (2001), "The Negotiator" (1998), or "Crimson Tide" (1995).

Philip Zimbardo has Thereus in Piscis (in opposition to Jupiter and Quaoar in Virgo) in the Crossing Point of the Age Progressions (Moon-Node Horoscope / Basis Horoscope). In 1971, as observer, h
e conducted the Stanford prison study in which 24 clinically sane individuals were randomly assigned to be "prisoners" or "guards" in a mock prison located in the basement of the psychology building at Stanford. The planned two-week study into the psychology of prison life ended after only six days due to emotional trauma being experienced by the participants.

2004 VN112, euthanasia; (90482) Orcus, suicide by external circumstances

The inner Oort cloud object 2004 VN112, has an important role in euthanasia (when someone needs the help of others to find death).

The Spanish movie about euthanasia "The Sea Inside" (2004), won the Oscar for the best foreign language film of the year. Also, the pose of the script of the movie "I, Robot" (2004) is based in euthanasia: Alfred Laning was controlled and trapped by the supercomputer VIKI, so he build a robot (Sony) with a operative system that was not restricted by the Three Laws of the Robotics, that allowed him to ask the robot to help him die, so his friend Del Spooner (police detective) could start the investigation about VIKI corruption and power abuse.

At the end of the movie "Open Water" (2004) or at the end of the movie "The Day of Tomorrow" (2004), there are suicides motivated by external circumstances, which are related with (90482) Orcus.

(31824) Elatus, puer aeternus archetype

(31824) Elatus is a centaur discovered in October of 1999. The orbit is between Jupiter-Saturn and Saturn-Uranus. It has a perihelion of 7.2 AU and an aphelion of 16.3 AU. It has a diameter of about 45 km. There are prediscovery images back to October and September of 1998. It has an inclination of 5.2º.


Greek mythology

Heracles' arrow hits Elatus in the arm, but passes right through, and ends up hitting Chiron. 

An actual image of this mythology can be Neo avoiding the bullets of agent Smith in the movie "The Matrix" (1999).

(31824) Elatus has an incredible ability to scape from the most difficult situations, like Morfeo-Neo in the movie "The Matrix" (1999). But is more habitual that he flee before things get worst.


Puer aeternus archetype

The Jupiter-Uranus quality is associated to the puer aeternus archetype (Marie Louise Von Franz; Liz Green), were an individual with immense potential always flee before that potential is achieved, like in the movie "Forces of Nature" (1999), or like in the book of Ursula K. Le Guin "A Wizard of Earthsea" (1968) or like Luke in the movie "Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back" (1980) when he interrupt the training with Yoda.

The 'puer' typically leads a provisional life, due to the fear of being caught in a situation from which it might not be possible to escape. He covets independence and freedom, chafes at boundaries and limits, and tends to find any restriction intolerable. (Wikipedia: puer aeternus)

(90482) Orcus, global evolution

(90482) Orcus was discovered in February of 2004 and named in November of 2004. It has a perihelion of 30.3 AU and an aphelion of 48.1 AU. It has a diameter of about 950 km. There are prediscovery images back to December and January of 2003, March, February and January of 2002, December and January of 2001, December of 2000, April of 1996, March of 1993, November and January of 1992, February of 1991, November of 1954 and November of 1951.


Etruscan mythology

Orcus was the grim reaper, collecting the dead and bringing them to the underworld.

Orcs are creatures of the fantastic universe of JRR Tolkien, that --as many others -- have aversion to direct sunlight, so its activity begins as it gets dark and ends shortly before the first rays of the sun.



If the key word for (134340) Pluto is 'core', then the key word for (90482) Orcus is 'context'. 

The aim with (134340) Pluto is to reach the core of our deep inner self to make a personal transformation. After that, we are a new person, and that finally changes our whole word. We have reached the next step in the individual evolution, like the Capricorn transformation in the movie "Himalaya: L'enfance d'un chef" (1999, 2006).

The main theme to be careful with (134340) Pluto is: "we only have power over ourselves". But with (90482) Orcus, what really matters is the context outside us, which we are part of it. The decision about life or death, about to continue a task or abandon it, are taken depending on the external situation, because with (90482) Orcus the aim is not the individual evolution (as Pluto), but the global evolution of the whole group which we are part of it.

Sometimes the only way to save the people close to us, is to renounce to life (like Silka at the beginning of the movie "Brother Bear", 2004). And sometimes the only way is fighting for life (like Kenai at the end of the movie "Brother Bear", 2004). It depends on the specific situation or context.

(52872) Okyrhoe, fast flowing

(52872) Okyrhoe is a centaur discovered in September of 1998. The orbit is between Jupiter and Saturn. It has a perihelion of 5.8 AU and an aphelion of 10.9 AU. It has an inclination of 15.7º. It has a diameter of about 50 km.


Greek mythology

Okyrhoe was the daughter of Chiron and Chariklo. The name means "swift running" or "fast flowing". A prophet, she was changed into a mare by the gods as punishment for revealing their plans to humankind.

Okyrhoe was a female centaur that was transformed into a mare: (52872) Okyrhoe allows speed action, like Marty Mc Fly at the end of the movie "Back to the Future" (1985); like Anakin at the pod racing tournament in the movie "Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace" (1999); like the final movement of Mulan at the end of the movie (Disney, 1998), or the movie "The Peacemaker" (1997).

From a reincarnation archetypes point of view, (52872) Okyrhoe is like a western gunman, that, at a speed higher that the eye can see, rolls over the gun before shooting. An other example is the fast movement of hands, arms and legs of a Chinese martial art warrior.

"Mulan" (1998)

The danger with (52872) Okyrhoe is to make a false move because of its strong ability for anticipation.
