The origin of power

Each morning the sun-god keeps on ascending out of the sea, like a fish. This is a golden symbol of power. John was aware of that when attending to the writing of Revelation in Patmos. It’s in chapter 13:1-3  that you can find his complete vision: “And it stood still upon the sand of the sea. And I saw a wild beast ascending out of the sea, with ten horns (Greek κέρατα, Hebrew קֶרֶן qeren, this term will[…]

This leads to an increased flux of energetic particles in this region and exposes orbiting satellites to higher-than-usual levels of radiation.
