Sun's Helix Path. Found at Wikipedia, info on Helix: A helix (pl: helices), from the Greek word Ýëéêáò/Ýëéî, is a twisted shape like a spring, screw or a spiral (correctly termed helical) staircase. Helices are important in biology, as DNA is helical and many proteins have helical substructures, known as alpha helices. Helices can be either right-handed or left-handed. With the line of sight being the helical axis, if clockwise movement of the helix corresponds to axial movement away from the observer, then it is a right-handed helix. If counter-clockwise movement corresponds to axial movement away from the observer, it is a left-handed helix. Handedness (or chirality) is a property of the helix, not of the perspective: a right-handed helix cannot be turned or flipped to look like a left-handed one unless it is viewed through a mirror, and vice versa. Most hardware screws are right-handed helices. The alpha helix in biology as well as the A and B forms of DNA are also right-handed helices. The Z form of DNA is left-handed. The pitch of a helix is the width of one complete helix turn, measured along the helix axis. In mathematics, a helix is a curve in 3-dimensional space. The following three equations in rectangular coordinates define a helix: Bernie Neville Jones <njones@xxxxxxxxx> wrote: Philip, Yes, this is what I am trying to get over, and the reason I am emphasizing it is because this is our avenue to explaining the cause of the Sun's helix path. This is one area where MS has a (legitimate) argument against us. They have Newtonian gravity, or Einstein's General Relativity, as the case may be, but we have ... nothing! By restoring the aether and demonstrating paths within it, as per Allen's analogy with currents in the ocean, we can begin to understand cause (and therefore actuality) behind these movements of the heavens.

Not sure I follow this Neville. Are you computing two rotations, an orbit that rotates around the world daily like a top that is precessing, and the sun traversing this orbit annually? If so, isn't the result the same as we are saying, ie a spiral is drawnN-S,,, if the sun were to draw a track. giving the appearance and reality of a N_S displacement. Philip. ----- Original Message ----- From: Neville Jones Marc, The motion of the heavenly bodies seem to me to be caused by a self-sustaining interaction between the body and the incompressible aether. The Sun's 'real' motion is not up and down, but the traversal of an orbit which is set within the aether (and inclined to the celestial equator at 23.4 degs). The Sun therefore travels around the World each day, taking slightly longer than the stars due to the fact that the Sun is actually moving around its orbit in the opposite sense to the direction that the orbit rotates around the World. This fully explains why the Sun gradually rises and falls in the sky, causing the seasons. --------------------------------- Free 3D Marine Aquarium Screensaver - Watch dolphins, sharks & orcas on your desktop!
