One of the elementary themes of ZEN OF WUWEI is the planet Jupiter.
Why Jupiter ?
The goal of ZEN OF WUWEI is to provide a valuable meta analysis of the essential features within our entrepreneurial system.
When considering the greatest system we are a part of, as human beings, and can understand through natural observation, the logical answer is our Solar System.
And, within our solar system the only feature that truly matters beyond our Sun, in both gravitational and astrological terms, is the planet Jupiter.
Therefore any valuable meta analysis of our Solar System must consider first and foremost the planet Jupiter, which makes the Jovian body a fitting theme for ZEN OF WUWEI.
A Life Contributing Body
As the largest planet of our Solar System by several metrics, Jupiter's impact cannot be understated, and particularly for life on Earth.
In fact, we owe our existence as individuals and as a species, along with the rest of nature, in part to the position of Jupiter and it's affect on our Solar System.
The mass of Jupiter alone is greater than all the other planets combined, making the planet's gravitational influence massive. So much so that Jupiter plays a semi-active role on the evolution of its' neighboring 7 planets, and the other celestial bodies of our system.
Thinking of you Pluto!
For Earth, the planet Jupiter has provided a unique environment of relative clam, or a window in time, for life to emerge and flourish relatively uninterrupted.
The 5th planet from the Sun has achieved this by absorbing vast amounts of cosmic debris from entering and endangering the inner Solar System, which Earth is a part of.
Much of the asteroids, comets and other cosmic objects that circumnavigate the Sun on varying elliptical orbits originate from the outer solar system, the Kuiper Belt and Oort Cloud. When these objects are cast into the Solar System by a variety of cosmic forces, they become trapped by Jupiters massive gravitational pull and ultimately crash into the upper atmosphere of the Jovian body, rather than continuing towards the inner solar system where they can endanger the smaller rocky planets, including Earth.
Therefore, the presence and affect of Jupiter effectively prevents potentially cataclysmic cosmic debris from ending life as we know it on Earth on a regular basis.
It so happens that cosmic debris impacts Jupiter more often than we would normally imagine. On average, the planet is impacted by asteroids of a significant size 6.5 times a year. These impacts result in visible scars upon Jupiter’s atmosphere, ranging from impacts as large are the entire pacific ocean to several times the diameter of our planet Earth.
Without Jupiter many known and unknown asteroids throughout history may have devastated our planet Earth, effectively preventing our planet from becoming the incubator of life that allowed our species to rise and dominate the globe.
So, it is thanks to Jupiter that we are presently able to examine the challenges business leaders face every day along their entrepreneurial journeys.
So all hail Jupiter, King of the Planets!
