Several prominent scientists recently shared the 2020 Nobel Prize for Physics. They were rewarded for helping to understand the exotic and mysterious phenomena of Black Holes.
- “The general theory of relativity leads to the formation of black holes.”
- “That an invisible and extremely heavy object governs the orbits of stars at the center of the galaxy.”
Their research has helped to reveal the darkest secrets of the universe. A black hole creates a gravitational pull that will not even allow light to emerge. The frequent readers of this column already know where this is heading. My partner and I have had numerous reflective conversations concerning our occasional combat fatigue with trying to illuminate the reality of the long term care “insurance” conundrum. Maybe it’s simply our own version of PTSD from the continuing battle to protect as many as possible from the potential financial implosion caused by an extended need for care.
