"Circumambient Water" (如鱼似水)
"Circumambient Water" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
For centuries, humanity gazed upon the heavens, convinced that Earth stood at the center of the universe, with the Sun and stars revolving around it in a celestial ballet. This geocentric belief, rooted in ancient philosophies and embraced by various cultures, held sway over scientific and religious thought for millennia.
However, in the 16th century, a new vision of the cosmos emerged, challenging this long-held view. Nicolaus Copernicus, a Polish astronomer, proposed a radical idea: the heliocentric model. In this revolutionary concept, the Sun took its rightful place at the center of the solar system, with Earth and other planets swimming around it.
This groundbreaking theory, further developed by Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei, sparked a scientific revolution, shattering the geocentric dogma and reshaping our understanding of the universe. It was a transformative moment in history, marking a shift from a human-centric view of the cosmos to one that embraced a more expansive and accurate vision of our place in the vastness of a cosmic ocean.
