8. "On vit, on parle, on a la ciel et les nuages." We live, we talk, we have the sky and the clouds, and up above in the empyrean vault, the full Moon has the same angular diameter as the disk of the
Sun, 30 arcminutes -- and the shadows of all eclipses fall across to the East. They fall slowly, as the Sun passes the Moon, and they progress to the East without the Earth ever spinning away.
"To think of shadows is a serious thing", and the progress of an eclipse across land is not affected by gravity. It is a shadow cast from the sun and the moon, that moves as they move in their spheres, not the earth, and gravity
does not move shadows.
"The tree is known by its fruits", "for such the fruit is, as that is the tree", and there is not any shade from any branch or eclipse that
is moved by gravity. There is not a force of gravity innate to matter that moves shadows, or dark and light, and dusty things in the wind. The days roll on, and the fictive force that Kepler, Galileo, and Newton called "gravity" does not light things up or
burn them out. It does not affect fires, laser beams, or electric switches either, although every eclipse demonstrates the authentic inertial stasis of the Earth.
proverb says "coming events cast their shadows before them": 山 雨 欲 来 风 满 楼 (shān yǔ yù lái fēng mǎn lóu). And this has not been from any supposed rotation of the Earth to orbit the Sun, that some events may be foreseen, and that some
seers have sensed déjà vu. Rather it comes from the simple way of being that we are but dust and shadow (pulvis et umbra sumus) since "the present contains nothing more than the past, and what is found in the effect was already in the cause."
9) "Everything that becomes visible is light", and these aspects in total indicate
that 1) the metaxological character and isometric panorama of the Earth are unique and 2) that the Earth is in, and in between, all signs of the ecliptic all the time. The Earth represents the only astronomical locus and cosmic time-piece in all the signs and
between all of them as well.
For a sense of totality, the
number seven of the octave and the six sides of a cube would illustrate the evidence. Besides six, and the six equilateral triangles encrypted within the celestial equator, seven has been said to be the number of creation and of realization in space and time.
Reckoned a symbol of fullness and completion, also for the natural world and the visible colors of white light and the rainbow, seven is said to be in the mix but beyond it. Philo of Alexandria
wrote, "I doubt whether anyone could adequately celebrate the nature of the number seven since it is beyond all worlds. Such is the holiness inherent by nature in the number seven that it has a singular value in relation to all the numbers within the decade."(1)
Mysterious interpretation of numbers and the decade as something sacred was common to ancient philosophy. Aristotle relates
that the Pythagoreans had assimilated the number seven to the throne of Athena, or Minerva, "since the number seven neither generates nor is generated by any of the numbers in the decade. For the number
number 2 generates 4, 3 generates 9 and 6, 4 generates 8, and 5 generates 10, and 4, 6, 8, 9, and 10 are also themselves generated, but 7 neither generates any number nor is generated from any: and so too Athena was motherless and ever-virgin."(2)
Being first, the number one uniquely accesses all succesive numbers, but is engendered by none whatever, and seven alone "is of such nature as neither
to engender nor be engendered", and "that which neither engenders nor is engendered remains umoved; for generation is encompassed by movement, since both that which engenders and that which is engendered are not without movement, the one that it may engender,
the other that it may be engendered. The sole thing that neither moves nor is moved is the senior Ruler and Commander, of whom it may properly be said that seven is his image."(3)
And there exists
says Philo, "a Commander and Ruler of all things, God, ever One, abiding, unmoved, himself like unto himself, different from all others."(4)
There are also seven atrributes of physicality
in height, width, and length: top and bottom limit height, left and right limit width, front and back limit depth, and seven represents the continuous interconnection between them.
Based on the octave and the seven traditional visible planets, the week itself mirrors in time the symbolism of the number six, and the seven that follows
in the interstitial structures of space. The physical template has six opposing sides and six cosmic directions, and also something from a seventh, which is the milieu in between. Seven represents the connection without which things would not be connected.
For instance, a crate to box the sun, with square over circle as cube over
sphere, would have six equal sides. The one universal measure of a side which they all equal is also the seventh for all the middle. As a property, it indicates there is a central origin in the nature of things, and of forms and parallels, and for measures,
If "things in this sensible world are ratios of numbers", a circle also represents seven and infinity rounded off, since the circumference equals approximately 6 times the radius.
The radial bar in the midst of the curve is the seventh measure, and pi is an infinitely repeating number for the neverending octave.
One for the middle, and the circumference six more distributed
in the uniform curve, the curve with no formal beginning or end, going on and on, round and round, into whatever horizons, to ask "how long has the sun has been circling the earth?"
Exactly how far away it is, for example, would not be the priority either in settling the question that it does, in fact, orbit the earth. As the number seven would add definition to reality, with a symbol of a sign,
and also provide something real in quantity of measure, the circular aspects of seven in astronomy are more important.
As counting is to counting, math in astronomy is similar to math in music,
and there never is anywhere for math to roam except where it is. There are the seven traditional planets, and the twelve tropical signs of the ecliptic, and there are the diatonic and chromatic scales, for example. The seven pitches of the diatonic scale can
be obtained using a chain of perfect fifths (like five senses for awareness) and a chromatic scale consists of twelve half steps to an octave. All the white (7) and black (5) keys from one C to the next C on a piano include the chromatic and diatonic
The twelve tone scale was derived from an original seven tone scale also called heptatonic prima. The white keys on a piano correspond to the original seven tone scale. In the hands of
a skilled musician, the diatonic scale can even be physically powerful, indirectly, as it affects the body with its sound. If played correctly, some of the affects can become nearly irresistible.
Re, Mi, Fa, So, La, Ti ... Do, seven notes centered in an octave, with the eighth note a parallel of the first for another scale. These seven sounds arranged according to rising or falling pitch are repeated every eighth note, and called the universasl pattern
of the octave.
"And without music there can be no perfect knowledge, for there is nothing without it. For even the universe itself is said to have been put together with a certain harmony of sounds,
and the very heavens revolve under the guidance of harmony."(5) In view of the solar system, then, the earth is like a seven in the middle of the others around the cube, represented by the visible planets and stars; and it also is an eighth, like the eighth
cosmic note, that always parallels the mediation within the octave of the passing astro-weather for the week.
The Earth, in fact, has a central view of the stars that could be called an isometric panorama. Par excellence
in all the signs of the ecliptic all the time without moving, the Earth has a central not a peripheral view of the cosmos; and it appears verifiably authentic, and complete from the aspects, that all the stars and planets are pointing in a little toward the
Earth all the time.
-The ecliptic is a like a wheel, therefore, even like a pizza pie of poetry, that has been cut into 12 equal pieces. The tropical signs of the zodiac comprise the twelve
pieces, and the seven planets and the Earth are like eight pepperoni. Cut a small circle in the center and it will have an equal part of every slice. The pepperoni that would be placed in the center of the pie would have equal parts of
all twelve pieces at once from the middle. The only way for a pepperoni to have similar parts of all twelve pieces simultaneously is to be the circle cut from the center, and there can only be one center of the wheel.
A pepperoni away from the center is peripheral, and division from a periphery is not the same as division from the center. Division from the center of the wheel emanates from the one place that has an equal part of all the sections. A different domain
from the edge, the central milieu is like the view from over the top of the mountain, being in all at once, even as the pizza is flat. No peripheral placement, on the other hand, has the same window edge, and no periphery is in more than one sign
at a time. Away from the center and to the outside, a pepperoni or a planet can only be part of one piece at a time -- or on the borderline between two.
-The perspective from any perimeter angle is fundamentally different from the perspective from the center. In the same way, the hub of a bicycle wheel has all the spokes equally from the center, and all the spokes that it has have
all the rim. And the different parts of the rim are all separated by their oppositions. The picture from the middle is most balanced and similar to Anaximander’s saying that the Earth keeps its place in the cosmos because of its “indifference”
Set in the center of the ecliptic and indifferently related to every sign, the Earth is always equally
in every constellation completely all the time, and for it “to move in contrary directions at the same time” to keep its unique place among the planets and stars is impossible. “For a single thing has a single movement, and a simple thing
a simple: contrary movements cannot belong to the same thing, and movement away from the center is the contrary of movement to it."(6) Sic passim pro diebus omnibus (so throughout for all the days): a simple vehicle cannot go two or more different speeds at
the same time. Has anyone ever been written a speeding ticket for going two different speeds at once over the speed limit?
"tellecor" must be hypostatically suspended in the equilibrium of the middle, as indifferently as completely still, as all the empirical evidence already shows.(7)
Like the pepperoni in the middle of the pie, vis-à-vis the ecliptic, the stationary Earth is never on a periphery. Not a fringe domain
of the ecliptic or of the cosmos, it always appears that all the planets and stars are pointing in at least a little towards the Earth, as are all their oppositions. The one sign in between all opposing signs of the zodiac all the time always, and in all the
syzygies of opposition, both permanent and passing, that are ever formed around the ecliptic, the Earth is always the element in the middle in between. Being the metaxological* element and locus of all the oppositions, it also represents the vertex of all
the other celestial aspects, of whatever degrees, being formed and passing along the ecliptic.
When a wandering planet
is in a sign, it is of one 30 degree division of the sky. The seven planets are always in and of one sign at a time, while the Earth, on the other hand, always has an equal measure of all twelve signs and their divisions at once. The only way this could
be is if it simply represents the center of the ecliptic and of the zodiac. Then it must also be at the center of the cosmos, since there is only one eclipticand one zodiac. It is the all-in-between of all oppositions and all the other celestial aspects. Because
it is not moving and it is in equilibrium at the natural center of the cosmos, it always has a fully “isometric panorama” of the heavens. No other object in the cosmos has this unique quality of being in all signs at once.
"Ut rosa flos florum, sic est domus ista domorum". As the rose is the flower of flowers, so is this house the house of houses.(8)
Volumes of telescopic evidence from outer space agree with this. Extensive studies of the isotropy of the cosmic microwave background
radiation, and the CMB dipole, and further investigations of gamma radiation and gamma ray bursts, X-ray clusters, quasars, and the spherically layered distribution of galaxies around the earth --- and the doppler effects of redshift in starlight --- have
all shown that the earth must be in the middle. After reviewing many astronomical studies, "the simple interpretation is that all the radiation in the universe, whether it is symmetric or asymmetric, is centered around the Earth. All the data show that,
as far out as our telescopes can see, space is oriented geocentrically."(9)
When all the known gamma ray bursts are mapped and catalogued, they indicate that the world tellecor is in the center.
The uniform distribution of burst arrival directions have shown that the isotropic array of gamma-ray-burst sources from outer space form a sphere of spherical shells, around the earth. "To this day, after the detection of several thousand bursts, and despite
earnest efforts to show the contrary, no deviation from a uniform random distribution (isotropy) in the directions of gamma-ray bursts on the sky has ever been convincingly demonstrated."(10)
Jonathan Katz wrote, after an extensive investigation of gamma radiation, "the data were in hand, and their implication inescapable: we are at the center of a spherically symmetric distribution of gamma-ray-burst sources, and this distribution has an outer
edge. Beyond this edge the density of burst sources decreases to insignificance."(11)
Other scientists have come to the same conclusion, including G. J. Fishman, C. A. Meegan, and S. E. Woolsey,
that the observational data of the isotropy and distinction of the gamma bursts "show conclusively that the Earth is situated at or very near the center of the gamma-ray burst universe.”(12)
patterns have emerged in studies of X-ray clusters, quasars, galaxies, redshift in starlight, and the CMB. And the earth is situated in the middle of the CMB dipole.
