The Heinsohn Horizon and The Nice Model

The Nice Model

Leona Libby’s Old Japanese Cedar provides a wealth of very surprising information.

For example:

The Old Japanese Cedar indicates the Heinsohn Horizon established, for planet Earth, a background climate oscillation with a periodicity of about 54 years which has since drifted out towards 59 years in modern times.

More surprisingly, the Old Japanese Cedar indicates planet Earth experienced a climate oscillation with a periodicity of about 37.54 years before the Heinsohn Horizon.

The change in periodicity from [around] 37.54 years to about 54 years at the Heinsohn Horizon echoes the Nice Model which emulates a scenario whereby the Solar System dynamically evolves from an “initial compact configuration”.

The Nice model is a scenario for the dynamical evolution of the Solar System.

It is named for the location of the Observatoire de la Côte d’Azur, where it was initially developed, in Nice, France.

It proposes the migration of the giant planets from an initial compact configuration into their present positions, long after the dissipation of the initial protoplanetary gas disk.

In this way, it differs from earlier models of the Solar System’s formation.

This planetary migration is used in dynamical simulations of the Solar System to explain historical events including the Late Heavy Bombardment of the inner Solar System, the formation of the Oort cloud, and the existence of populations of small Solar System bodies including the Kuiper belt, the Neptune and Jupiter trojans, and the numerous resonant trans-Neptunian objects dominated by Neptune.

Its success at reproducing many of the observed features of the Solar System means that it is widely accepted as the current most realistic model of the Solar System’s early evolution, although it is not universally favoured among planetary scientists.

However, the Old Japanese Cedar suggests this evolutionary transition occurred about 1,100 years ago and that the mainstream guesstimate that the Late Heavy Bombardment “occurred approximately 4.1 to 3.8 billion years (Ga) ago” is only in error by a mere 4.1 to 3.8 billion years.

The Late Heavy Bombardment (abbreviated LHB and also known as the lunar cataclysm) is an event thought to have occurred approximately 4.1 to 3.8 billion years (Ga) ago, corresponding to the Neohadean and Eoarchean eras on Earth.

During this interval, a disproportionately large number of asteroids apparently collided with the early terrestrial planets in the inner Solar System, including Mercury, Venus, Earth, and Mars.

The Other Big Bang


The dynamic evolution of the Solar System from a compact configuration to its current [more expansive] format 1,100 years ago explains why ancient cultures enjoyed years with 360 days.

Numerous evidences are preserved which prove that prior to the year of 365¼ days, the year was only 360 days long.

The texts of the Veda period know a year of only 360 days.

A month of thirty days and a year of 360 days formed the basis of early Hindu chronology used in historical computations.

The ancient Persian year was composed of 360 days or twelve months of thirty days each.

The old Babylonian year was composed of 360 days.

The Assyrian year consisted of 360 days;

The month of the Israelites, from the fifteenth to the eighth century before the present era, was equal to thirty days, and twelve months comprised a year;

The Egyptian year was composed of 360 days before it became 365 by the addition of five days.

Cleobulus, who was counted among the seven sages of ancient Greece, in his famous allegory represents the year as divided into twelve months of thirty days:

The ancient Romans also reckoned 360 days to the year.

the Mayan year consisted of 360 days; later five days were added, and the year was then a tun (360-day period) and five days; every fourth year another day was added to the year.

In ancient South America also the year consisted of 360 days, divided into twelve months.

The calendar of the peoples of China had a year of 360 days divided into twelve months of thirty days each… When the year changed from 360 to 365¼ days, the Chinese added five and a quarter days to their year, calling this additional period Khe-ying;

Worlds In Collision – Immanuel Velikovsky – 1950

Thirty-day months, twelve months, year of 360 days as I put quite a long list, actually, from all ancient calendars, from Incan and from Mayas, from Peru – which [Mayas] means in Mexico – from all ancient European, like ancient Roman and Greek, and also Asian, near Eastern, and Far Eastern civilization.

From each of them I put quotes from authority: twelve months of thirty days, strange as it is, without intercalary.

Transcripts of the Morning and Evening Sessions of the A.A.A.S. Symposium on
“Velikovsky’s Challenge to Science” held on February 25, 1974

Therefore, it’s sensible to make the most of your allotted time because there is no guarantee the Earth with continue to orbit the Sun indefinitely with a periodicity of 365.256363004 days…

  1. I read a lot of your articles because of how interesting they are. For like a year, I wonder if ‘the Heinsohn Horizon’ is code for ‘phantom time hypothesis’. I just realized it’s not.

    the choices?

    – the conventional view, with a crap load of ad hoc

    – the dark ages/the fall of the Roman empire were caused by a resonance of Jupiter and Saturn

    – the dark ages never existed

    – something else

    Could you post a link to an article which explains what the Heinsohn Horizon actually is?

    More than likely, Earth, Mars, Venus, Saturn and Jupiter (and perhaps all the planets) entered the current Solar System as a Herbig Haro string of objects, in a polar alignment and gradually settled into their current orbits by way of electrical interaction. Electrical charge can change gravitational attraction. Gravity is not a constant. Witness the gravitational anomalies of the so-called “masses” of the highly electrically charged comets. Also, although not explained yet, witness the change in gravity during Solar Eclipses as indicated in Foucault Penduli documented by Allais beginning in 1954..

    Planets are most likely created whole, by splitting from the core of an electrically overloaded star (like Saturn was), thus reducing it’s electrical load by providing more surface area. The sun’s surface has been proven to be a rigid core of Iron, as documented by:

    The surface of the Sun:  The sun has a rigid iron surface located under the photosphere that is revealed by satellite imagery.  The solar surface sits beneath the sun’s visible photosphere and is electrically active.

    [The Rigid Iron Surface of the Sun] “revealed by the TRACE satellite using its 171 angstrom filter. This filter is specifically sensitive to iron ion (FE IX/X) emissions

    A video of the sun’s surface as it rotates, and displaying heavy electrical plasma activity on rigid iron mountains, is available on that website.

    Gradualist people with mathematitis, assuming that gravity is a constant, can come with all sorts of Rube Goldberg type of explanations of things. The Electric Universe theory is a radical departure from consensus science, but it is the simplest explanation, satisfying Occam’s Razor.
