(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.
