A late seventeen hundreds astronomer and geologist by the name of John Michell had taken inspiration from his predecessor, Issac Newton. Because of the time in which he lived and the abilities he gained, he welcomed more well known people in to his house for philosophical and scientific discussions, such as Benjamin Franklin, Joseph Preislty (discoverer of oxygen) and Henry Cavendish (discoverer of hydrogen). I personally find him to be an amazing and incredibly intelligent person from his day and age, proving that in even older societies we were all still capable of wondrous things.
The key element that drew me towards him was his ability to theorize what nobody else thought had a ghost of a chance existing, after all it’s pretty hard to find something that nobody can see, hear, touch or smell. Thus was the astounding discovery of what he called
We still have theories and evidence of these dark stars, but they are more commonly known today as black holes. Using many facts and minuscule pieces of strong evidence. This is why I found him to be eminent and also why I knew he would be the person I needed to research. When I was young, I hated instructions and manuals because they took to long to read and understand, I preferred having pieces of evidence and properties that I would collect and experiment with until I came to a conclusion on how to use it. John Michell did the same things with larger things like science and seismology.
I enjoyed experimenting with things i knew nothing about and learning how to use them, exploring the unknown has always been a passion, from outdoor trail blazing to codes and the cosmos. Each of us have been brought up and educated in a similar fashions, nothing out of the ordinary or life changing. My future is still unclear, but he continued on the path that he had paved. Graduating from a good college, he continued to learn more about his passions, experimenting and theorizing often. He figured out for the first time how to create artificial magnets and was the founder of seismology.
Using his knowledge of seismology and the theory of Issac Newton that light is made up of particles, their must be some form of gravity that is strong enough to hold light particles, thus came his theory of dark stars.
To this day not much is known about John, people only have vague descriptions of what he may look like, some people believe that he looked like the man in the photo below, but his description by another is
“a little short man, of black complexion, and fat.”
A man of mystery, who solved many, John Michell.
