The Galactic Fountain — 21 Comments

  1. I love this explanation! When I tried to understand this on my own, I thought of it as a plant with an exploding pod of seeds that would then float through the air and land on the ground, leading to new plants. I also played with the metaphor of pollen balls that would explode into the air, cross pollinating with other plants. Your explanation is much clearer to me. (And also a little hard to grasp… but then again it wouldn’t be worth exploring if it wasn’t!)
