Publisher’s Description:


"Transit" the Astronomer said, pausing for effect. "The word, as applied to humans, proposes a determist pursuit: getting from one plaace to another. But the heavenly bodies, in their greater wisdom, have nowhere to go except around, or outward, and certainly no place to get to and stop. For the, content with perpetual rotation and drift, transit means something else: the crossing of one thing over another. It is no more or less than the alignment of bodies, without prejudice or purpose. Transit means the momentary coincidence of two trajectories; a sudden possibility that gives brief poetry to entropy's indifference. Afterwards, as before, the bodies are again moving outward, along, around, until further alignment occurs. Remember this," the Astronomer winked, "moving forward."
