Space expands via movement. Like a cosmic ocean with its myriad ripples, it enfolds and explicates a manifest order.3 The universe, the largest living organism, knows the pain of such expansions, and sheds tears at every rupture that each of these migrations cause. It expands at the beckoning of the stars and planets, whose orbits leave a light tra...
