WHAT CELESTIALWINDS IS DOING
I have always been captivated by the cosmos. I chose CelestialWinds as the name of this profile because I believe that it conveys an image of an aesthetic that I have struggled to satisfactorily describe in words. With its colors dancing between pale turquoise and vibrant aquamarine to an ethereal pinky white, the boundless wonders of the cosmos have unceasingly set my mind ablaze.
The word cosmos derives its origin from the Greek kosmos, meaning “order,” “harmony,” and “the world.” Who hasn't felt a sense of awe while gazing deep into the sky, resplendent with countless stars on a clear night? Who hasn't asked themselves if ours is the only planet that supports life? Who hasn't pondered the nature of the planets, stars, galaxies, and the universe itself? Yes, it is true that humanity's interest in the heavens has been universal and enduring. Humans are driven to explore the unknown, discover new worlds, push the boundaries of our scientific and technical limits, and then push further. Humans seem to have an innate desire to explore the intangible, frequently challenging the boundaries of our knowledge.
I have perpetually been fascinated by the reality that there are winds in space. Space is an almost perfect vacuum full of cosmic voids and nothingness. The phenomenon that powerful winds exist in space, in a vacuum of emptiness, is an inquisitive thing.
There are several different types of celestial winds, most notably solar wind, and galactic wind.
Galactic winds are streams of high-speed charged particles often observed blowing out of galaxies. With speeds of between 300 and 3,000 km/sec, these winds can either blow material out into the halo of the galaxy, possibly to mix with the hot X-ray emitting halo gas, or expel the matter from the galaxy completely to mix with the intergalactic medium. Galactic winds have two sources of energy: starbursts and active galactic nuclei (i.e. the supermassive black holes lurking in the centers of most galaxies).
In the case of starbursts, galactic winds are powered by high-speed stellar winds ejected from newly formed massive stars (similar to the solar wind, only far more dense and energetic) and supernova explosions. Galactic winds are believed to play several important roles in the evolution of galaxies. They are responsible for redistributing metals throughout the galaxy and also regulate star formation. If the galactic wind has blown all of the gas out of the galaxy, star formation will cease.
As with all stars, the Sun loses material by way of a stellar wind. Stellar winds are fast-moving flows of material (protons, electrons, and atoms of heavier metals) that are ejected from stars. These winds are characterized by a continuous outflow of material moving at speeds anywhere between 20 and 2,000 km/sec. In the case of the Sun, the wind “blows” at a speed of 200 to 300 km/sec from quiet regions, and 700 km/sec from coronal holes and active regions.
The solar wind causes many phenomena when it interacts with the Earth’s upper atmosphere and magnetic field, the most visible of which are the aurorae (Borealis and Australis). These are produced when solar wind particles accelerated by the Earth’s magnetic field collide with atoms and molecules in the upper atmosphere. As the atoms and molecules de-excite, they emit light at specific wavelengths.
Solar winds play an important part in the chemical evolution of the Universe, as they carry dust and metals back into the interstellar medium where they will be incorporated into the next generation of stars.
I have a few profiles here, but you likely know me best as Theodora.
A Little About Me
Within these profiles of mine, you will not find many details about my personal life. There are some exceptions and I have posted more details about my life on certain profiles. I have also published some original text that I have written for various reasons. Why do I not choose to post many details about my life? That is simple. First, most of you are just scrolling by and probably will not take the time to read this far. :-) Second, I am a private person and choose, very carefully, with whom I share my life. If you get to know me, you may find I choose to share with you. I am just an introvert who finds it extremely hard to trust. Most people who know me off the site or who know me on other profiles think I must be kidding when I tell them I am an introvert, however, I assure you, this is a true statement. My job and hobbies, combined with the fact that my family moved frequently when I was a child, forced me out of my comfort zone long enough that I have become, what I call, a situational extrovert. This is someone who does well around groups of people or at parties, but it makes them extremely nervous prior to the gathering. Situational extroverts will enjoy themselves thoroughly after they get settled at the gathering, however, will need some alone downtime after the event to recoup and rest. I have also been told that I am a genuinely kind person. I will add that I am a natural redhead and do have a bit of a temper at times. Over the years, I have mellowed and now keep most of my thoughts to myself.
I feel that my coding and graphics skills have improved tremendously since I coded my first profile, Theodora. My newest profiles do not follow a specific theme throughout but are each based on their own theme. I did recently code a profile that was in the theme of my Coven, Letchworth. My profile's themes represent different facets of my personality, things or stories that I enjoy, and graphics and color schemes that I find pleasing to the eye. I enjoy coding as an expression of my more creative side, which is one of the reasons that I have several profiles. Another reason I have multiple profiles is that people tend to give them to me, especially if they are profiles that are housed in my Coven. I am not a frequent name changer or regular profile redesigner; once I get a profile the way that I like it, it stays that way. It usually takes me hours on multiple days to get a profile the way I like it. This is one reason that I ask people not to rate the profile until work on it has been completed.
Because my life off VR is of a very serious nature, you will find me to be quite silly at times, often joking. I am also quite perverse and have never met a dirty joke I did not like. Although I am extremely difficult to offend, I do offer a few boundaries that I take seriously. I expect to be treated with respect. If you respect me, I will respect you. If you disrespect me, I will not disrespect you in return. I am unlikely to speak to you any further. I do not tolerate silly shenanigans, whining or drama. You will often see this sentiment expressed on many VR profiles, many times on profiles of those who are on the top of the negative honor list.
Yes, I said the "B" word - BOUNDARIES. I wish to make myself unquestionably clear on this issue. If you bring your drama here to my temporary escape from the world or to my Coven sanctuary, you will be blocked and blinded if you are in my Coven. There will be no discussion. If, after some time has passed, you have adjusted your behavior, you may message me on either of my main profiles, Theodora or MalumInSe, and request that you be unblocked or unblinded. I will ask you what you have done to ameliorate your behavior. I tell you this in advance so that you may be prepared with an answer.
Please, do not flirt with me if you are in a relationship even if it is a strictly online relationship. I cannot stand cheaters. It is not cute or amusing and I consider that drama as well.
Please do not message me and simply say "hi." I generally do not respond to non-substantive messages. Who has time for that nonsense? I also do not respond to requests to be turned into a vampire of any other such silliness.
My Rating Approach
My rating approach has changed over the years. I generally rate everyone who has at least attempted to do something to their profile, a 10. Not everyone is a coder by profession or has the equipment and software to elaborately code a profile. I always take that into consideration when I rate. I am also not a “revenge rater.” If you give me a 5, but I like your profile, you will get a 10 from me. I hope that you will consider the time and effort that I put into this profile prior to rating it. Each of my profiles is individually crafted and although I may borrow some text from another profile, such as information about my rating approach, each profile is unique. Everything I have learned regarding coding and creating graphics is self-taught, with some occasional help from a few dear friends.
Please feel free to add me, add my journal and/or stalk me. After all, we all need a little help with bonuses. Just message me so I can make sure to return the kind favor. Thanks for visiting my profile. I hope you enjoyed your stay.
