(17456) 2003 MW12 [Varda], privacy

(174567) 2003 MW12 [Varda] is a Kuiper belt object discovered in June of 2003. It has a diameter of about 840 km. It has a perihelion of 39.6 AU and an aphelion of 52.3 AU. A moon was discovered in the year 2011. There are prediscovery images back to June-May of 2002, March of 1994, June and March of 1993, June and May of 1992, July of 1989, July of 1984, May of 1983 and March of 1980. (174567) 2003 MW12 [Varda] was numbered in January of 2008.

During the first prediscovery of (174567) 2003 MW12 [Varda], appeared the movies "The Blue Lagoon" (1980) and "Friday the 13th" (1980), were the intimacy in nature was a relevant issue. 

The main theme of (174567) 2003 MW12 [Varda] is privacy, and everything related, like encryption or passwords. An example is the comedy movie "Little Secret" (2002), also the terror movie "Más de mil cámaras velan por tu seguridad (More Than a Thousand Cameras Are Working For Your Safety)" (2003).

At the beginning of the movie "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003), John Conn
or lives 'off the grid ' - no home; no credit cards; no cell phone and no job. john Connor has no record of his existence to avoid being found by Skynet. By a telematic point of view, that is an extreme case of resignation in order to maintain privacy.

(60558) Echeclus in Mike Brown's Moon Node Horoscope during the discovery of (136108) Haumea

Michael E. Brown (born June 5, 1965) has the centaur Echeclus conjunct Pluto and Deucalion in Virgo in the cusp of the 10th house of the Moon Node Horoscope. The Age Point in the Moon Node Horoscope (AP-MNH) made a golden aspect (68.75º) and a quintil (72º) to Echeclus (also Pluto and Deucalion) during the discovery of Haumea:

Echeclus position is 13º45' Virgo and 0º04' of the 10th Moon Node House. This are the Age Point golden aspects to Echeclus in Brown's Moon Node Horoscope:

AP-MNH +137.5 > 10 Dic 1974
AP-MNH +144 > 28 Mar 1976
AP-MNH -144 > 22 Ago 1990
AP-MNH -137.5 > 10 Dic 1991

AP-MNH -72 > 16 Ene 2005
AP-MNH -68.75 > 10 Sep 2005
AP-MNH -36 > 28 Mar 2012
AP-MNH -34.38 > 25 Jul 2012

In July 2005 a group of Spanish astronomers [MNH's 10th House] rediscovered Haumea [Deucalion], precovered the orbit [Echeclus] and forced Brown to report quickly other objects discovered [Pluto; Virgo]:

"Ortiz argues that astronomers should report even large, slow-moving transneptunian objects as soon as they confirm the discovery. He told New Scientist that international scientists working together, collaborating and sharing resources can boost science progress and do the best possible job [2005 RM43]." (New Scientist)

(208996) 2003 AZ84, crystal clear

(208996) 2003 AZ84 is a plutino discovered in January of 2003. It has a diameter of about 650 km. It has a perihelion of 32.3 AU and an aphelion of 46.5 AU; the argument of perihelion is at 14º16' Aries. It has an inclination of 13.5º, with the ascending node at 11º56' Sagittarius (108º, sesquiquintile aspect; 4' orb). In February of 2007 a satellite was discovered (about 70 km diameter). There are prediscovery images back to February of 2002, December of 2001 and March of 1996. 2003 AZ84 was numbered in March of 2009.

In the year 2002, internet blogs become popular.

 Jacob - Twilight Saga

While (134340) Pluto gets in touch with the core of our highest self and destroys every thing that does not fit with its essential nature, (208996) 2003 AZ84 produces authenticity and transparency by restoring the equilibrium between form and contents, or between the inside and outside personality, like in the movies "Changing Lanes" (2002), "Ae Fond Kiss (Just a Kiss)" (2002), "Phone Booth" (2003), "Is Pure" (2002), "Virgin Territory" (2007), "Primal Fear" (1996), "The Crucible" (1996), or "Atonement" (2007).

(84922) 2003 VS2, responsible use of power

(84922) 2003 VS2 is a plutino discovered in November of 2003. It has a diameter of about 530 km. It has a perihelion of 36.4 AU and an aphelion of 42.9 AU; the argument of perihelion is at 24º17' Cancer. It has an inclination of 14.8º, with the ascending node at 2º49' Aquarius. There are prediscovery images back to December-October and January of 2002, September of 2001, November of 1998, September of 1993, December and October-September of 1991.

In the movie "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" (1991), John Connor instructs the Terminator to minimize human casualties.

The main theme of (84922) 2003 VS2 is the transformation of power into a more responsible use of it, like in the movies "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" (2003), "Phone Booth" (2003), "House of Sand and Fog" (2003), "Dog Ville" (2003), "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003), "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" (1991), "Philadelphia" (1993), "Schindler's list" (1993), "The Negotiator" (1998).

The responsible use of power of Ashitaka in the movie "Mononoke Princess" (1997) is opposite to the raffishness of Frost in the movie "Blade" (1998).

(84522) 2002 TC302, self-regulated learning

(84522) 2002 TC302 is a 2:5 resonant scattered disc object discovered in October 2002. It has a perihelion of 39.2 AU and an aphelion of 71.9 AU (scattered disc object with medium aphelion); the argument of perihelion is at 26º18' Gemini (85º, golden aspect; 1º18' orb). It has an inclination of 35.0º, with the ascending node at 23º51' (22º30', semioctile aspect; 1º21' orb). It has a diameter of about 1100 km. There are prediscovery images back to August of 2001 and August of 2000.

(84522) 2002 TC302 is related with self-regulated learning, like in the movie "Final Destination" (2000), "28 Days" (2000) or "Erin Brockovich" (2000), and especially "Lilo & Stich" (Disney, 2002).

The term self-regulated can be used to describe learning that is guided by metacognition (thinking about one's thinking)
strategic action (planning, monitoring, and evaluating personal progress against a standard), and motivation to learn. In particular, self-regulated learners are cognizant of their academic strengths and weaknesses, and they have a repertoire of strategies they appropriately apply to tackle the day-to-day challenges of academic tasks. These learners hold incremental beliefs about intelligence (as opposed to fixed views of intelligence) and attribute their successes or failures to factors (e.g., effort expended on a task, effective use of strategies) within their control. Finally, students who are self-regulated learners believe that opportunities to take on challenging tasks, practice their learning, develop a deep understanding of subject matter, and exert effort will give rise to academic success. In part, these characteristics may help to explain why self-regulated learners usually exhibit a high sense of self-efficacy. In the educational psychology literature, researchers have linked these characteristics to success in and beyond school. (Wikipedia: self-regulated learning)

(29981) 1999 TD10, establishing the teamwork

(29981) 1999 TD10 is a scattered disc object discovered in October of 1999. It has a perihelion of 12.3 AU and an aphelion of 185.4 AU (scattered disc object with very high aphelion and Saturn at the perihelion); the argument of perihelion is at 22º54' Vigo. It has an inclination of 6.0º, with the ascending node at 4º40' Libra (opposition aspect; 4º40' orb). It has a diameter of 110 km. There is a prediscovery image back to September of 1997.

The main theme of (29981) 1999 TD10 is to incorporate Saturn's quality to the social intelligence of the SDO range. For example, distribution of tasks in the teamwork and establishing rules or limits for action, like Snow White in the movie "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs" (1937), "The Peacemaker" (1997), or the Queen Padmé Amidala in the movie "Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace" (1999).

(38628) Huya, healing of past lives

(38628) Huya is a plutino discovered in March of 2000 and named in August of 2003. It has a diameter of about 500 km. It has a perihelion of 28.6 AU and an aphelion of 50.9 AU; the argument of perihelion is at 7º35' Gemini (68º45', golden aspect; 1º10' orb). It has an inclination of 15.5º, with the ascending node at 19º18' Virgo. There is a prediscovery image back to April of 1996.

In South America mythology, Juyá is one of the most representative gods in the infra-world of the Wayuu Indians of Venezuela. As such it is associated with the rain and winter, and lives in the celestial altitudes beyond the sun.

All characters in the movie "Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon" (2000), have the possibility of be happy by living a true life, but for an incompressible reason --because there is not an external impediment-- they avoid that course.

At the end of the movie "Sinbad: The Legend of the Seven Seas" (2003), Proteus tells Marina:

PROTEUS: "Just another uneventful day in Syracuse... You know, I stood here with a woman once, she looked over the ocean and wished she could sail beyond the horizon. She saw... such wonder."

MARINA: "And what happend to this woman?"
PROTEUS: "She got her chance. She sailed the seas, and she fell in love."
MARINA: "(Sighs) Proteus, I..."
PROTEUS: "Marina, follow your heart. Mine is here in Syracuse. Yours... yours is sailing with the next tide."
MARINA: "(Sighing): Oh, Proteus." 

(38628) Huya is related with the transformation of fixed patterns from past lives into a free and flexible expression of life. There is a very interesting description in the book of Annie Marquier (2000): "Free Your Self: Releasing Your Unconscious Defence Patterns", or in the book of Daniel Meurois (1999): "Karmic Diseases".

(38628) Huya is also related with psychological therapy, especially with the elimination of mental virus, like in the movies "American Beauty" (1999),
"Kirikou and the Sorceress" (1998), "28 Days" (2000) and "Ugly Coyote" (2000).

Ataecina, the unofficial name of 2003 EL61 [Haumea]

Ataecina (the name proposed for 2003 EL61 [Haumea] by the Spanish team) was a popular goddess worshipped by the ancient Iberians, Lusitanians, and Celtiberians of the Iberian Peninsula.

It was associated to the goat and the cypress (a tree usually plant in cemeteries, because of its vertical grow of roots and branches). Both are symbols related with collective interaction and free of collective interaction, respectively. That made it a very appropriated name for a resonant Kuiper belt object (actual classification of Haumea by the Minor Planet Center).

Ouroborus, mythology for (15760) 1992 QB1

The first object to confirm the Kuiper Belt existence was (15760) 1992 QB1. The discoverers of (15760) 1992 QB1 wanted to call it Smiley, like the spy of John Le Carre.

According to dynamical systems theory, all classical Kuiper belt objects are limit cycle attractors.
Michael Coleman proposed the mythology of Ouroborus for (15760) 1992 QB1, which is a very appropriated idea.

2004 XR190, emotional awareness during new experiences

2004 XR190 is scattered disc object with Kozai resonance discovered in December of 2004 and nicknamed 'Buffy'. It has an unnusual orbit because of its high inclination with an almost circular orbit. It has a perihelion of 51.4 AU and an aphelion of 63.5 AU. It has an inclination of 46.5º. It has a diameter of about 500 km. 

2004 XR190 has an special ability for being aware of his inner emotional states, especially during new experiences, like in the movie "The Island" (2005), when the clones scape to the outside world and discover their own sexuality, or like in the movie "The Incredibles" (Pixar, 2004), when the kids discover its own powers.

2008 KV42 [Drac], self-sufficiency

2008 KV42, nicknamed 'Drac' (short for Dracula), is a scattered disc object with high orbital inclination, discovered in May of 2008. It has a perihelion of 20.3 AU and an aphelion of 70.6 AU (scattered disc object with low aphelion and Uranus at the perihelion). It has a diameter of about 60 km.

Secret Tarot - 8 coups
It is orbiting the Sun in retrograde (backwards) and almost perpendicular to the ecliptic: inclinaton of 103.5º (180º-103.5º=76.5º).

Its nickname is very appropriated, because 2008 KV42 has inner strength to act alone, without any help from others, like Altair in the PS3 video game "Assassin's Creed" (2007). Jason Bourne or Indiana Jones are also related to 2008 KV42, because in many situation they can not trust anybody. Another example is at the end of the movie "Awake" (2007):

- Clay...
- I'm gonna stay here with you. There's no one left for me out there anyway.
- You don't need anyone else. You do it yourself, Clay. You're strong.

(66652) Borasisi, a confidence game is like putting on a play where everyone knows their part, except for the mark

(66652) Borasisi is a binary classical Kuiper Belt object discovered in September of 1999 and named in September of 2007. It has a perihelion of 40.0 AU and an aphelion of 47.4 AU. It has a diametyer of about 165 km + 135 km.

Observations in November of 2001 suggested a companion, that was discovered in April of 2003 and named Pabu in September of 2007.

  • Inclination: 0.6º (Aries).
  • Perihelion: 282º21' (Capricorn; semiseptile 77º08' [=biseptile 102º51' > 0º Libra], 31' orb).
  • Ascending node: 84º34' (Gemini).
  • Argument of perihelion: 197º47' (Libra; vigintile 162º [=quintile 72º > 0º Capricorn], 13' orb).


The name comes from Kurt Vonnegut's novel Cat's Cradle (1963): "... wherein Borasisi, the sun, held Pabu, the moon, in his arms, and hoped that Pabu would bear him a fiery child. But poor Pabu gave birth to children that were cold, that did not burn; and Borasisi threw them away in disgust. These were the planets, who circled their terrible father at a safe distance. Then poor Pabu herself was cast away, and she went to live with her favourite child, which was Earth. Earth was Pabu's favourite because it had people on it; and the people looked up at her and loved her and sympathized." 

Bokononism is the fictional religion practiced by many of the characters in Kurt Vonnegut's novel "Cat's Cradle" (1963): "The foundation of Bokononism is that all religion, including Bokononism and all its texts, is formed entirely of lies; however, if you believe and adhere to these lies, you will at least have peace of mind, and perhaps live a good life." 

Plan a confidence game

"A confidence game... is like putting on a play where everyone knows their part. The Inside Man, the Roper, the Shills... Everyone that is, except for the Mark." ("Confidence", 2002)

(66652) Borasisi dynamics can also be activated in an amusement park, like in the movie "House on Haunted Hill" (1999), "The Haunting" (1999), "Scooby Doo" (1969), or "The Truman Show" (1998); and in a coin, like in the movie "Confidence" (2002), "Anger Management" (2003), or "The Cider House Rules" (1999) when the title of professional qualification is presented in front of the comite of the orphanage.

(225088) 2007 OR10, to get involved

"Try not. Do... or not do. There is no try." (Yoda)

(225088) 2007 OR10 is a 3:10 resonant scattered disc object discovered in July of 2007 and announced in January of 2009 (nicknamed "Snow White"). There are prediscovery images back to September-August of 2002, August of 2001, October of 1991 and August of 1985. It has a perihelion of 33.1 AU and an aphelion of 100.6 AU (scattered disc object with high aphelion and Neptune at the perihelion). It has an inclination of 30.9º. It has a diameter of about 1100 km. It came to perihelion around 1856 (just after Neptune's discovery).

The perihelion is at 3º27' Libra (opposition, 3º27' orb). The ascending node is at 6º49' Pisces (semioctile aspect, 22º30'; 44' orb), whose argument of perihelion is at 26º38' Libra (triseptile aspect, 157º17'; 55' orb).

In the Walt Disney movie (1937), Snow White, lost in the forest, finds friendly animals and soon they get involved with her in cleaning the house of the seven dwarfs. Later, the seven dwarfs also get strongly involved with her.

The main theme of (225088) 2007 OR10 is to get involved in an important issue of another persons, like Constance Griffiths, attorney for Charlie Creews in the TV series "Life" (2007). (225088) 2007 OR10 also demands speed action infront of unusual situations, like in the movies "Back to the Future" (1985), "Terminator 2: Judgement Day" (1991), "Déjà Vu" (2006), "Blood Diamond" (2006), "Rails & Ties" (2007) and "Little Miss Sunshine" (2006).

(136108) Haumea, collective interaction

(136108) Haumea is a 7:12 resonant Kuiper belt object discovered during Cristmas of 2004 and rediscovered in July of 2005 (2003 EL61). It was named in September of 2008. It has a perihelion of 34.7 AU and an aphelion of 51.5 AU. It has a diameter of about 1450 km. There are prediscovery images back to May-April of 2004, April-March of 2003, May-April of 2002, February of 1999, April of 1998, May of 1996, February of 1995, March of 1994, April and January of 1991 and March of 1955.

In November of 2005, two moon of (136108) Haumea were announced: Hi’iaka, with a diameter of about 320 km, discovered in January of 2005; and Namaka, with a diameter of about 160 km, discovered in June of 2005. 

The perihelion is at 2º24' Aries (conjunction aspect, 2º24' orb). It has an inclination of 28.2º, with the ascending node at 1º48' Leo (trine aspect, 1º48' orb), whose argument of perihelion is equivalent to 0º36' Sagittarius (trine aspect; 36' orb).

(136108) Haumea is the central object in a cloud of Kuiper belt objects that are the pieces of it after a big collision (1995 SM55, 1996 TO66, 2002 TX300, 2003 OP32, 2005 RR43...). This astronomical quality gived her mythological name.

In Hawaiian mythology, Haumea is the goddess of childbirth and fertility. She takes many different forms and has experienced many different rebirths. Haumea is the mother of many other deities in Hawaiian mythology who are pieces pulled off of her body.

The "fertility" concept, when applied to (136108) Haumea, means that some paths are easier to walk that others. It depends on how the collective or group forces are acting. The people in our life, environment, society or world around, (1) do not know where we are and what are we doing or can be indifferent to us, in both cases they leave us to move with out interferences; (2) can be against us, making our moves full of obstacles; or (3) can be in the same direction and with the same motives as us, making easier the way.

"In 1993, the then minister of sciences William Waldegrave offer a bottle of champain to anyone who can explain the Higgs Bosson in simple terms. David Miler of University College London came up with one of the wining explanations. It went something like this: "This students from the university of Liverpool, they represent each particles, that represent every corner of the universe. [1] If a popular lecturer walks through the students, they crowd around so as they profound and intelligent questions, this has the effect of slowing him down, he has a quite mass. [2] If a lecturer with exams results walks through, she is going to be absolutely surrounding by students, as they claim for the results, poor path through be very slow, she has a lot of mass. [3] But if an unpopular lecturer were to walk to the crowd, they were ignore her, she will be a mass less particle, like a photon, that can travel unimpeded through the universe at the speed of light. In other words, a fundamental particle gets its mass by interacting with Higgs particles, and massed objects have the strongest interactions." (Youtube: Hunting for the Higgs)

In the movie "All that Heaven Allows" (1955), their romance causes clashes and tensions between Cary, her children, and the country club folk.

In the movie "The Beach" (1999), the community keeps the secret of the place, to avoid massive tourist to came.

In the video games "Metal Gear Solid" (PSX, 1998), "Metal Gear Solid 2: Soons of Liberty" (PS2, 2002) and "Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater" (PS2, 2004), Snake, controlled by the player, must move undetected through a hostile, enemy-filled environment. Although Snake acquires various weapons, the emphasis is on using stealth to avoid confrontations, since if a guard discovers Snake, will raise the alarm and the rest of guards will turn up. 

(136108) Haumea has a deep comprehension of which and where are the collective forces, and knows how has to proceed in every situation. At the end of the movie "The Recruit" (2003) there is a amazing twist of this collective forces.

Intro of the video game "Assassin's Creed" (PS3, 2007) 

Living according to the spiritual laws is the only way of having peace with others and that is the necessary condition to get the inside peace of oneself.

The collective consciousness of (136108) Haumea emerged during the years 2003-2008 [when (136108) Haumea was photographed, discovered and named]. The particular story of a discovery of a new object is always meaningful.

(13647) Makemake, sustainable development

(136472) Makemake is a Kuiper belt object discovered in March of 2005. It has a perihelion of 38.5 AU and an aphelion of 53.1 AU. It has a diameter of about 1500 km. There is a prediscovery image back to April-February of 2003, April of 2002, February of 1999, March of 1990 and January of 1955.

Orbital resonance:
8:15 with Neptune (99.9%).

Mythology of Makemake

In the mythology of the South Pacific island of Rapa Nui (Eastern Island), Makemake was a sea bird deity carring an egg.

In the movie "Rapa Nui", the Birdman had to race with an egg hold in his head, taking strong
care that will not be broken. That care for growing life is the main theme of (13647) Makemake, like in the movie "The Revenge of the Sith", that appeared in the year 2005, when (13647) Makemake was discovered, or the movie "Kung Fu Panda", that appeared in the year 2008, when (13647) 2005 FY9 was named (13647) Makemake.

Other movies based in the rules for sustainable development are "The Perfect Man" (2005), "Just Friend" (2005), "Sinbad: The Legend of the Seven Seas" (2003) and "How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days" (2002).


Sustainable development

(13647) Makemake is the spiritual knowledge that guarantee the right development of life existence, no matter if that is the whole Earth, a civilization, a teamwork project, a relationship, or a disciple.
