Brian Wilson contemplates astrological ideas on this tune. He explained: "Michael Bernard, who is the greatest programmer I ever met, brought a telescope to the studio one night, and I looked at Jupiter, and I saw the craters on the moon. But just the idea of looking through a telescope, thinking about the planets and do they really have an affect on our minds? And do they really affect the way people react to each other and interact with each other? Is there some kind of reaction between people that has something to do with planets in the sky? A lot of people feel this is true."
