Title: Celestial Navigation
Abstract: In today’s world less and less mental and physical effort is needed to cope with one’s needs. Alexa answers all your questions, advises you what to do and how to do it. Doors open for you, food is delivered to your door, toilet seats can close themselves, cars drive without you, and soon Robots will perform many of your tasks. There is less and less for you to do but maybe sit, watch movies and tv, and live vicariously, watching how people coped with their needs years ago. Does this sound appealing? Wouldn’t you like not to depend on electronics and have the skill that enables you to find your location in a more romantic way by gazing at the heavens? People have been doing this for thousands and thousands of years. GPS has only been with us for less than 50 years. Come be introduced to Celestial Navigation using heavenly bodies to locate your position on the earth. It may come in handy some day when your phone runs out of charge.
