The disco ball emits the colourful reflections of light to create a universe of its own. The rotating celestial body is like a sun in the centre of its own solar system. Its revolving energy is the source of the hundreds of small light spots, which are transforming the space into a cosmos of light and rotational force. It's the father and origin of energy, like a god it is the beginning of it all. As in a childish imagination of God as a merciful and wise old grandfather it is recognizable through the long grey beard. That's 'Father Energy'.
