The Earth’s Tilt

The news last night reported that with the earthquake in Chile the earth’s tilt shifted. Talk about change! Brian Williams says that earth science has a long way to go understanding this, but with that tilt a fraction of a second of the day was lost. Time changed. Earth changed. I wonder if we can phanthom what all this change means, how it will manifest. If a butterfly’s wing on the other side of the world can cause a tidal wave over here, what will a change in earth’s tilt do? At least I feel a little less crazy. Yesterday the contemplations I was writing about regarding change and stillness were big in me. We must all feel the tilt in some way. My sense is that this is big.
