Coffee and Cosmos

la jetee

“When I stir my morning coffee and watch the swirling of the streaks, I am observing the law that moves the universe–in the whirling of the spiral nebulae, in the eddying of the galaxies.”
–Ernst Jünger, Aladdin’s Problem, 10.*

*The screen capture, the Parisian connection, is via Chris Marker’s short film La Jetee:
