Fiery Trigons: Kepler’s Genius

In the modern era science has replaced religion as “the opium of the people”.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that very few individuals are willing to ponder the possibility that their deeply held scientific beliefs might be [in polite language] bogus balderdash.

The Genius of Kepler
The genius of Kepler is emphatically demonstrated by his Laws of Planetary Motion.

In astronomy, Kepler’s laws of planetary motion are three scientific laws describing the motion of planets around the Sun.

1. The orbit of a planet is an ellipse with the Sun at one of the two foci.

2. A line segment joining a planet and the Sun sweeps out equal areas during equal intervals of time.

3. The square of the orbital period of a planet is directly proportional to the cube of the semi-major axis of its orbit.

Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) was a German astronomer, mathematician, and astrologer.

Kepler’s analytical genius recognised organisational structures and functioning systems.

Kepler pointed out the presence of the Fibonacci sequence in nature, using it to explain the (golden ratio-related) pentagonal form of some flowers.

Field daisies most often have petals in counts of Fibonacci numbers.

In 1754, Charles Bonnet discovered that the spiral phyllotaxis of plants were frequently expressed in Fibonacci number series.

Mysterium Cosmographicum (lit. The Cosmographic Mystery, alternately translated as Cosmic Mystery, The Secret of the World, or some variation) is an astronomy book by the German astronomer Johannes Kepler, published at Tübingen in 1597 and in a second edition in 1621.

Kepler proposed that the distance relationships between the six planets known at that time could be understood in terms of the five Platonic solids, enclosed within a sphere that represented the orbit of Saturn.

More specifically:

Johannes Kepler’s Third Law of Planetary Motion demonstrates the structure and rotation of the Solar System is fundamentally governed by the laws of fluid dynamics where planetary density is of vital importance.

See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2013/01/17/solar-system-rankine-vortex/

The solution to a fluid dynamics problem typically involves the calculation of various properties of the fluid, such as flow velocity, pressure, density, and temperature, as functions of space and time.

And just as significantly:

Johannes Kepler’s Fiery Trigon leads to a greater understanding of the Great Mutation Cycle and the cyclical nature of Earth’s climate on a millennial scale.

Newton’s Mathematical Mendacity
Johannes Kepler’s Third Law of Planetary Motion [1619] falsified Isaac Newton’s magically instantaneous “action at a distance” Law of Universal Gravitation [1687] long before the irascible Isaac invented his mathematical mendacity.

In physics, action at a distance is the concept that an object can be moved, changed, or otherwise affected without being physically touched (as in mechanical contact) by another object.

Newton’s classical theory of gravity offered no prospect of identifying any mediator of gravitational interaction.

His theory assumed that gravitation acts instantaneously, regardless of distance.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Action_at_a_distance

Unsurprisingly, the bogus nature of Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation is clearly demonstrated by the “galaxy rotation problem”.

The galaxy rotation problem is the discrepancy between observed galaxy rotation curves and the theoretical prediction, assuming a centrally dominated mass associated with the observed luminous material.

When mass profiles of galaxies are calculated from the distribution of stars in spirals and mass-to-light ratios in the stellar disks, they do not match with the masses derived from the observed rotation curves and the law of gravity.

A solution to this conundrum is to hypothesize the existence of dark matter and to assume its distribution from the galaxy’s center out to its halo.[citation needed]

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galaxy_rotation_curves

See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/the-falsification-of-newtons-law-of-universal-gravitation/

Nowadays, if you wish to believe in Isaac Newton’s Law of Universal Gravitation then modern mathematicians insist you also believe “85% of the matter in the universe” is composed of an “invisible” and “undiscovered” dark matter.

Dark matter is a hypothetical form of matter that is thought to account for approximately 85% of the matter in the universe and about a quarter of its total energy density. The majority of dark matter is thought to be non-baryonic in nature, possibly being composed of some as-yet undiscovered subatomic particles.[note 1]

Its presence is implied in a variety of astrophysical observations, including gravitational effects that cannot be explained by accepted theories of gravity unless more matter is present than can be seen.

For this reason, most experts think dark matter to be ubiquitous in the universe and to have had a strong influence on its structure and evolution. Dark matter is called dark because it does not appear to interact with observable electromagnetic radiation, such as light, and is thus invisible to the entire electromagnetic spectrum, making it extremely difficult to detect using usual astronomical equipment.

The primary evidence for dark matter is that calculations show that many galaxies would fly apart instead of rotating, or would not have formed or move as they do, if they did not contain a large amount of unseen matter.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_matter

This is symptomatic of the modern mania for mathematics and the magically instantaneous Universal Newton that has no physical mechanism whilst also having zero ability to organise and animate a coherent system like the Solar System.

See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2015/11/18/the-universal-newton/

The more I appreciate Johannes Kepler the more I understand that Isaac Newton’s magically instantaneous Universal Gravitation is a scientific absurdity on a gargantuan scale.

Unfortunately, successive generations of mathematicians have abandoned the scientific method and have only succeeded in turning Kepler’s Gold Standard into Fool’s Gold.

https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2013/06/21/mathematical-alchemy/

Isaac Newton implied he had “seen further” by “standing on the shoulders of giants”.

Newton was relatively modest about his achievements, writing in a letter to Robert Hooke in February 1676:

If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isaac_Newton

When it comes to gravity it’s safe to say Newton saw no further than the Oozlum Bird.

    I prefer to think of the stars as being expelled from the galactic centre, after the fashion of the ‘ballet skirt’, though generally being more constrained to the disc by em centripetal forces. So maybe not in orbit at all just slowly drifting out from a spinning plasmoid. If everything is modelled/positioned with the belief that the stars are in orbit that’s what the measurements will show.

  2. oldbrew says:

    If you divide the AU distance of Jupiter by the AU distance of the other 3 giant planets, then sum the 3 answers, it’s about 0.99 – obviously close to unity.

  4. Spiral galaxies are Faraday or homopolar motors which our solar system is definitely not, further supporting Tim’s notion that the present solar geometry is very, very recent, 1st millennium after the collapse of the Roman period. Even the idea of a center of gravity is a metaphysical concept.

    I would hazard a guess that the inner planets will eventually slow down orbitally over time until a Faraday system results.

  5. Newton’s gravitation is actually a metaphysical idea since instantaneous communication implies the absence of matter and that distance, =d, is zero. However as Bell’s theorem on non-local connection is experimentally verified, then at the quantum reality is a wave function and the appearance of particles the result of the experiment itself from intersecting wave trains causing addition and subtraction of the peaks and valleys of the wave functions.Electrons are thus interence patterns produced by the intersection of two wave sources, the electric potential between the Earth and the ionosphere, the E-Field, and the wave source in the Crooke’s tube which is traveling at 90 degrees to the E-Field. Electrons are thus simply interference patterns of light, or Electromagnetic radiation, in the E-Field.

    Where does gravity fit in this model? It doesn’t because it is metaphysical and hence irrelevant. But it is the object of intense worship.

  6. oldbrew says:

    What about ‘gravity assist’? We know it works, even if we say the name is misleading or wrong.

    Gravity assistance can be used to accelerate a spacecraft, that is, to increase or decrease its speed or redirect its path. The “assist” is provided by the motion of the gravitating body as it pulls on the spacecraft.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gravity_assist

  7. malagabay says:

    The best fit I’ve found is a Geocentric Rankine Vortex

    See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2013/01/15/geocentric-rankine-vortex/

    And a good example of gravity assist is the horseshoe orbit of Asteroid 2010 SO16.

    See: https://malagabay.wordpress.com/2012/09/23/evidence-02-asteroid-2010-so16/

  8. Gravity is an electromagnetic force and the vortex model Tim suggests is a magnetic field aligned charged current coupled with a weak Lorentz force, which means gravity might then be the Lorentz force itself.

    The force is real, and we call it gravity, but it is not matter attracting matter that causes it, it’s the existence of rotating and spinning plasma that creates the Lorentz force and hence gravity.

  9. A specific point re the ‘gravity assist’ conundrum; and the so16 asteroid.
    Pls refer to https://solarsystem.nasa.gov/resources/754/what-is-a-lagrange-point/
    L1, L2, L3 are points of instability. A body at that point has the tendency to move away under the combined gravitational forces. But L4 and L5 are stable points. so16 appears to move inexorably from one stable point to the other, always away from Earth. In a gravity force field sense, L1,L2,L3 appear as to repel, while L4,L5 attract. It is why so16 always loops round behind the sun, and as per wiki “According to various simulations 2010 SO16 will remain in this orbit for at least 120,000 years and possibly for more than a million years”.

  10. malagabay says:

    I have zero faith in Lagrangian Points that are based upon Newtonian Mathematics and Mass.

    However, in the domain of Magnetohydrodynamics [MHD] it’s worth remembering a quadrupole magnet can attract and repel.

  11. johnm33 says:

    I worked out Keplers spheres/Platonic solids years ago when I could still do some maths, it wasn’t a perfect fit but very intriguing. Just reread the rankine vortex post which I’ve clearly misunderstood before,[perhaps still?] now I find myself wondering if you included a shear zone, more or less as shown in the image whether the numbers would work out nearer perfect, could it even be a way of finding the depth of the shear zone. Then does that mean there’s a relationship between the depth of the vortice and rotation speed/compression of the planets. If this is a better model it’s very much like the ‘electron’ orbital model.
    By the way thanks for dismantling my whole world view.

  12. Hendrik ball: nice gadget. From what I can figure the various magnet arrangements create a magnetic force field, where there is created an ‘inflection point’ in the force field between them that is ‘stable=a point of attraction’. I think that extrapolating from that, if the supporting table were to be rotated so as to create a centrifugal force (of suitable value) that stable point will change position and effectively partly duplicate the L4L5 Lagragian point.

  13. johnm33 says:

    Just read Glogers rule, now wondering if Venus’s orientation is a function of the ‘field/aether’ vortice at that radius from the Sun and if like Russian dolls the vortices are nested within each other each having an electron like focal point something like in this animation. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N3bw0ksnDHg
    Since I’m inclined to think we are inside a ‘black hole’ the pressure density of the aether could hardly vary, but if the vortices are within the aether itself then the compressive effect on ‘matter’ would vary enormously dependent upon where in the vortex the ‘matter’ was. Thus the horseshoe orbit would to some degree give insight into the size of ‘our’ russian doll.

    “wondering if Venus’s orientation is a function of the ‘field/aether’ vortice at that radius from the Sun”

    This may [or may not] be of interest.
