The Generational Obsession with Our Moon

The moon is called by many things by different cultures throughout the ages, but it has always been the glowing orb in the sky that seems to have a magical effect on our world’s happenings. We’ve all heard it before, gravitational tides in the ocean, psychotic impulses during the full moon, and let’s not forget where the origins of the word “loony” come from. But through this, why is there such a feeling of warmth we have towards the moon at night? Is it that we feel comfortable in the presence of light through the dark night? Does that say something to us about our human nature? Or is it because for thousands of years, the Moon has been the brightest in the sky, the close thing always unattainable? Well, until we landed on the Moon. Then again, we did not land on the moon. Some human representations of our countries landed on the moon, and we were left to experience the monumental occasion vicariously through our TV sets. What do you think, and how do you respond to the moon? For me, I love the idea of walking through a moonlit night. So romantic.
