"Forever Swing" (永恒的秋千)
"Forever Swing" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Newton’s Cradle elegantly demonstrates the third law of motion, which states that when two bodies interact, they apply forces to one another that are equal in magnitude and opposite in direction. In other words, the law of action and reaction. As the lullaby goes, when the wind blows, the cradle will rock. For every push there’s a swing and so on until friction conspires to slow things to a stop. When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall. Then we find ourselves back at the beginning of it all. And then we must patiently wait for the pendulum to begin its hypnotizing melody once again. Sometimes it becomes hard to believe such beauty is rooted on science and facts. We mustn’t forget Isaac Newton was a poet as well. From his 1687 book Philosophie Naturalis Principia Mathematica, “From these forces, by other propositions which are also mathematical, we deduce the motions of the planets, the comets, the moon, and the sea.”
