*Bicycle - Syzygy
Syzygy, from the Ancient Greek suzugos (&sigma,?&zeta,&upsilon,&gamma,&omicron,&sigmaf,) is an obscure phenomenon where three celestial bodies align in a perfect straight-line configuration. The term Syzygy is often applied when the Sun and Moon are in conjunction (new moon) or opposition (full moon). This fits perfectly with the opposites being equal and opposing yet complementary, balancing, and mysterious. When the first men became conscious of the light that was emitted from the sun, and the relationship that exists between light and day, darkness and night, they attributed to the Sun and Moon opposite values: the Sun causes Day - but the Moon causes Night. During the day it's Hot - but at night it's Cold. The day is filled with Light - the night if filled with Darkness. Both are on the sky for 12 out of 24 hours daily. A Mayan Legend says that in the days when the gods were still mortals there existed a love so deep and pure that its strength created the Sun and the Moon, the Day and the Nights and the Stars that shine above. The Maya civilization believed that the gods guided the Sun and the Moon across the sky. Even in the darkness of the night, they believed that the sun and the Moon continued to journey through the Underworld. Eternally. Aligned. In Syzygy.
