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 progress to the East without the Earth ever spinning away.
"To think of shadows is a serious thing", said Hugo, 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, 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 or umbra from any branch or eclipse moved by gravity. There is
not a force of gravity that is innate to matter or seeds that moves shadows, or dark and light, and dusty things in the wind. The fictive force that Galileo, Kepler, 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.
A Chinese 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 some seers have sensed déjà vu. Rather it comes from the simple way of being. As Horace said, "pulvis et umbra sumus", we are but dust and shadow.
"The present contains nothing more than the past, and what is found in the effect was already in the cause."
9) These aspects in total also 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 example, the number seven and the six sides of a cube would illustrate the point, besides drawing six equilateral triangles within
the circle of the ecliptic. Seven has been said to be the number of creation and of realization in space and time, and reckoned a symbol of fullness and completion, and also for the natural world. 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)
"Everything that becomes visible is light", and mysterious interpretation of numbers and seeing 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 accesses all the 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 interconnection between the other six.
The week itself is based on the seven traditional visible planets, and 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 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 within a square over the circle would have six equal sides, and 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 for measures, et cetera.
A circle also
represents seven and infinity rounded off, since the circumference is approximately equal to 6 times the radius, the one bar in the midst, for seven measures, and pi is an infinitely repeating number. The radius of a circle is one in the middle, and the circumference
is six more of that one distributed in its curve, the curve with no formal beginning or end, and going on and on, on and on, round and round, into whatever horizons.
How long the sun has been circling
the earth, and exactly how far away it is, for example, would not be the priority in settling the question that it does, in fact, orbit the earth. As the number seven would add definition to reality, with a symbol, and also provide something real in quantity
of measure, the circular aspects of seven in astronomy are more important.
Math in astronomy is similar to math in music, as counting is to counting, 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 scales.
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.
Do, 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 a seven in the middle of the others around the cube, represented by the seven visible planets; and it also is an eighth, like the eighth cosmic note, that is always the parallel in mediation within
the octave of the passing astro-weather.
The Earth, in fact, has a central view of the ecliptic that could be called an isometric panorama. Uniquely in all the signs of the ecliptic all the time
without moving, the Earth has a central not a peripheral view of all the stars; 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 that has been 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, being in all
at once, the center milieu is like the view from over the top of the mountain, 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.
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” and equipoise.
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?
So "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)
As 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)
Similar 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.
