A Journey of a Thousand Lifetimes

It’s a long, long story; 75,000 years long. It’s the tale of the orbit of comet Kohoutek around the Sun, a journey of a thousand lifetimes. Its visit to us here in the inner Solar System in the mid-1970s led members of one cult in the USA, The Children of God, to flee to communes around the world, convinced by their leader, David Berg, that doomsday was coming to America. But that’s another story – a short one, but intriguing nonetheless in its revelations about the many-faceted relationship between the Cosmos and its people.
