We live in the age of the identity crisis run wild. In today’s special edition of Planet Waves TV, Eric checks into the charts of the U.K. voting to leave the European Union. Strange but true: on the day that the modern United Kingdom was formed (Jan. 1, 1801), a planet was discovered, named Ceres — and it factors prominently into the reading.

In the video, I mention an article — Uranus, Eris and the Riddle of the Internet. Here’s a direct link.

    Thank you so, so much for helping to make sense of something so very shocking and bewildering, not only (it seems) to those of us who voted Remain, and to bystanders – but to some who actually voted to leave. (Thanks to Amanda Painter for digging this up.) It seems clear that by many the vote was taken at a very low level of consciousness.

    I am still dazed and half-expecting to wake up from the nightmare.

    Wait… Eric… On the day the UK was formed, Ceres was discovered? That VERY DAY, in the SAME YEAR??!?

    Wow. Well, that makes my email to you about Ceres that much more… interesting. My mind is not quite formulating a concrete thought to connect it all… more like just a sensation, or looking at the edges of a though.

      Hilarious, to-the-day synch. Yes, the birth of the UK has a planet to come with it.

      I wonder if Piazzi has lab notes from that night, so we can get closer to a time. It could be really close. And we live in a time when there are 750,000 planets known. On 12/31/1800 science had just discovered one prior.

    As Britain awoke on Friday to the news that it had voted in favor of withdrawing from the European Union, voters were introduced to their new reality with a stunning admission from Nigel Farage, the pro-Brexit advocate who leads the U.K. Independence Party. Farage said that the Vote Leave campaign’s signature pledge—that leaving the European Union would allow for £350 million to be spent on the U.K.’s National Health Service—was a “mistake.”

    I wonder how you explain the fact that Scotland, Northern Ireland and London didn’t succumb to this? Britain isn’t just England after all, though many people in England and the US use the words interchangeably.

      Well, bear in mind that the chart he used is the Act of Union. Certainly the union has not been an especially happy one – and Scotland in particular has in recent years shown how much more liberal a government can be than the greedy, entitled set we have at Westminster.

    There are a lot of people questioning whether anyone in the Brexit camp will have the nerve to invoke Article 50 which is what sets the wheels actually turning on the path of an exit from the EU. Also, the referendum of 23 June was an advisory one, it is NOT legally binding! Are we remainers in denial, trying to create some hope out of conjecture? or is there a Mercury trickster effect at work? Or a VOC moon or anything that could suggest this may not go ahead?
