The 7th Planet from the Sun, Uranus
The written records of Uranus go back eons and suggest that the people of Earth once had an orgasmic matrifocal civilization that used space travel to escape the climate change that destroyed the dinosaurs. Sir William Herschel, one of the founding Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, was the first queer to see Uranus through a telescope in 1781, ushering in the human modern age. Her discovery of Uranus coincided with the Romantic movement, which emphasized individuality and freedom of expression. According to the written records, Uranus initially developed the principles of the Enlightenment and radical political ideas of equality and freedom, among other things.
The planet Uranus is very unusual among the planets in that it rotates on its side, so that it presents each of its poles to the Sun in turn during its orbit; this causes one hemisphere to be bathed in light, while the other lies in total darkness. Due to the gassy surface of Uranus most people reside in Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania and Oberon, the largest moons. Miranda, one of the most majestic satellites, has intoxicatingly beautiful undulating and chaotic icy landscapes and erratic orbital patters. Uranians extract the element called Assium, used in the manufacturing of dildos, and enjoy the benefits of their gynocratic society.
Uranus secretes the principles of genius, individuality, new and unconventional ideas, discoveries, electricity and inventions. This civilization is dedicated to humanitarian and progressive ideals. In Uranus, the planet of sudden and unexpected changes, freedom and originality rule; revolutionary events that upset established structures, radical ideas and people rule. Immigrants are free to come in Uranus as much as they want, there are no taxes, no pants, no army and no government.
Great figures such as Aleister Crowley, Emma Goldman, Jimi Hendrix, Angela Davis, David Bowie, Benazir Bhutto, Kenneth Anger, Isadora Duncan, L. Ron Hubbard, Timothy Leary, Virginia Woolf, Josephine Baker, Nico, Maria Callas, Robert Anton Wilson, Mary Wollstonecraft, Greta Garbo, Sarah Bernhardt and Marilyn Manson have been influenced by their visits to Uranus.
Uranus has also been cited as a key influence on many esoteric individuals, including figures like Marija Gimbutas, Gerda Lerner and Riane Eisler, Simone de Beauvoir, Kenneth Grant, Martina Navratilova, Gerald Gardner, and to some degree Ágnes Heller, Raya Dunayevskaya, Austin Osman Spare, Dorothy Edgington, Charlotte Perkins Gilman, Lucio Fontana, Harry Hay and most importantly philosophers like Judith Butler, Iris Murdoch, Marilena Chauí, Andrea Christofidou, Patricia Churchland, Judith Sargent Murray, Hannah Arendt, Octavia Butler, Babette Babich, Annette Baier, Michèle Le Dœuff, Rosa Luxemburg, Nancy Cartwright, Julia Kristeva , Marjorie Grene, Mary Hesse, Jennifer Hornsby, Luce Irigaray, Harriet Martineau, Mary Midgley and more.
