Subject: [geocentrism] Re: Oscillation of Sun or Universe?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 JonesMarc,
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.
