(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). It has an inclination of 35.0º. 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). It has an inclination of 6.0º. 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. It has an inclination of 15.5º. There is a prediscovery image back to April of 1996.

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).
