9863 days = 27 years

27 laps, the Earth revolves the sun at an astounding 30,000 mph. So strange that we can't feel that. I wonder if life would lose it's serenity if the universe flashed by us...

Everything seems so slow, when it's not... The sun, carrying us, flies around the galaxy at 485,000 mph.

That is insane... If we break our land speed record of 763 miles per hour, it's like, which direction in accordance to our orbits was the vehicle traveling?

In relation to our galaxies black hole, it could have been going around 500,763 miles per hour.

That 763 miles doesn't seem to be that big of a deal anymore. Here, in relation to our Earth, that seems so fast, and yet our entire galaxy is traveling towards some "great attractor", passing a thousand kilometers in a single second. Our galaxy covers what that vehicle does in an hour in a second.

I wonder what life would be like if we could actually feel or see just a bit of that speed...

Would we ever have a moment of peace?

I've had the pleasure of witnessing 27 laps around our sun, but that's only like 1 millionth of the orbit around our black hole.

A small fragment in time. They say our sun has traveled around the galaxy 25 times since it's birth, but I wonder if maybe there were a few faster rotations in it's earlier days, maybe it's more like 27

that would be epic.

And yet, it doesn't really mean anything... I wonder what life would be like if we lived in a binary star system and our planet had some kind of complex figure eight rotation, one that's always changing... How would we keep track of anything?

What would it be like if our days and nights were always changing? 7 hours of night here, 10 days of light there.

That would be weird.
