“I See The Moon and The Moon Sees Me”

A brief conversation with a friend of mine sparked a desire to research and share how the moons affect us as humans.  The moon and the sun combine to create tides in Earth’s oceans (in fact the gravitational effect is so strong that our planet’s crust is stretched daily by these same tidal effects). We accept this as fact (and yes, I will say “fact” because it is in fact “fact”), that the phases of the moon impact the motion of the ocean.  We briefly hear about this in grade school.  We also learn at a very young age that the human body is about 75% water.  So why is it when we hear the phrase “it must be a full moon” in reference to people’s out-of-the-ordinary behavior(s) that the majority of us will roll our eyes and tune out the comment?  Isn’t it actually completely logical to recognize that the changes in the moon that move all the waters on the planet also move the waters inside of us?
