    because there's a "new moon" every lunar cycle.

    Dear GB,

    Because it goes through its phases - new, to full, to old - which takes about a month. It then disappears from view and starts again as a "new" moon. I'll try and think of some.

    But the new moon is the same old new moon it was last month...

    Of course, in terms of human language of accomodation (which the race employs to express opinions and views regarding matters and phenomenon, otherwise far beyond

    its ken). In galactic/grand scheme terms, not so much. Let's set aside social niceties for the nonce and call it for what it is.... a big fat definitely not, no way, no!
