A circle is a plane figure bounded by one line, and such that all right lines drawn from a certain point within it to the bounding line, are equal. The bounding line is called its circumference and the
point, its centre.
— Euclid. Elements Book I
Therefore, since the truth
altogether excludes the possibility of there being a plurality through which all things exist, it must be the case that that through which all existing things exist is one thing.
Anselm of Canterbury. Monolgion,
few have realized what a curious role Copernicanism has played in confusion of society. As Goethe wrote, "among all the 'discoveries' and 'corrections' probably none has resulted in a deeper influence on the human spirit than the doctrine of Copernicus ...
Possibly mankind has never been demanded to do more, for consider all that went up in smoke as a result of realizing this change: a second Paradise, a world of innocence, poetry and piety: the witness of the senses, the conviction of a poetical and religious
faith ...", etc.-1
"We find it hard to picture to ourselves the state of mind of a man of older days who firmly believed that the Earth was the center
of the Universe, and that all the heavenly bodies revolved around it. Thus conceived, the Universe was so simple that it was fully and adequately represented, with its true shape and proper motion, in sundry great clocks compacted and painted by the craftsmen
of the Middle Ages. We are done now with the twelve spheres and the planets under which men were born happy or unahppy, jovial or saturnine. The solid vault of the firmament is cleft asunder. Our eyes and thoughts plunge into the infinite abysses", and "the
imagination is vexed and startled when the astronomers tell us that the luminous ray which reaches us from the pole-star has been half a century on the road: and yet that noble star is our next neighbor ..." -2
In "The Origins of Modern Science", Herbert Butterfield wrote that the Copernican revolution "outshines everything since the
rise of Christianity and reduces the Renaissance and Reformation to the rank of mere episodes, mere internal displacements, within the system of medieval Christendom. Since it changed the character of men's habitual mental operations even in the
conduct of the nonmaterial sciences, while transforming the whole diagram of the physical universe and the very texture of human life itself, it looms so large as the real origin both of the modern world and the modern mentality, that our contemporary periodisation
of European history has become an anachronism and an encumberance."-3
Oculos habent sed non
ut videant: they have eyes but not that they would see, maybe sometimes for hundreds of years. Maybe thousands, or forever, "if then the light that is in thee, be darkness: the darkness
itself how great shall it be! Si ergo lumen quod in te est tenebrae, quantae illae tenebrae erunt".-4
rule in place, however it is, would tend to produce the "naturalization of its own arbitrariness"; yet it is easy to know that the people who visit the Foucault pendulum at the UN in Manhattan, for example, do not ever see or realize in any sensible way
that the Earth rotates at all. Except for the pendulum, and what they have been told to believe, the audience never recognizes in any practical or intelligent way that Manhattan, at the 40thparallel, is spinning 795 mph into the east, or 1,165 feet
per second, which is about 250 mph faster than a commercial jet flight.
Besides bad transportation,
an effective way to level people, or alienate their sense of understanding, is to deny or obliterate their own fair appreciation of natural history. And another way to look at the situation there is to understand that Manhattan lands in Salamanca, Spain, as
it were, at least in principle if not the scenery, in around a four-and-a-half-hour trip, five times a day.
Don Quixote was out of his mind to be attacking windmills, when the diabolical Copernican windmill of the ages was everywhere around him, and right underfoot.
"Look out, valiente" Sancho cried at summer high noon, "this one would move like blazes, yet forever and never you and Rocinante
will be unable to comprehend the maneuver. By its incomprehensible engines of gyromancy, you'll be twisted round and round in battle, and you'll fall to the left every time."
Later, after dreadful combats against giants and demons, in difficult terrain with no center, they were transported inside the Magic Castle in Las Vegas. "You cannot win at this table either", Sancho advised, yet the Master insisted, "I am I and my circumstances," he said. "If not them, then not me."
expression was grave if airy. "Patience, and shuffle the cards," he told the dealer.
There was a harlequin fool too who gladly reminded them that it has been observed that
"four out of three people who visit the UN still have trouble with fractions, and cannot remember basic trigonometry."
"People always complain about their memories, never about
their minds" -- but before all mankind, Sancho Panza would still have his own island government, and the way to figure these things is not too complicated if committed to kind memory.
memory is the well of reason, and by nature all men reason alike, and no one can tell that the earth is moving by looking around or noticing anything, including a Foucault pendulum, it becomes a simple matter of knowing the parallel of a place. For instance,
one should first take the cosine of location, then multiply that by the circumference of the Earth, then divide by the 24 hour day.
Cosine tables are easy to find and save time
for this sort of scientific endeavor. For example, lovely Quito, home of El Nacional football La Maquina Gris, is at the Equator where cosine (0) = 1, where the circumference of the Earth is 24,902 miles, and close enough for rounding off. Therefore, for velocity of rotation, divide by the 24 hour day, and the spinning and spinning acceleration of the Earth in Quito will be 1038 mph.
They say multiply the good in life and divide the evil, and let each day be sufficient unto itself; but that should be a lot of immediate torque de moto quoque
to go unnoticed, through all the years; but so it goes, without even knocking over a taco stand, according to Judeo-Masonic controlled NASA and the UN.
Since Manhattan is at the
40th parallel North, that also runs through the middle of Spain, and the border between Kansas and Nebraska, then take the cosine of 40”, and multiply that into the circumference of the Earth, and follow with division by the 24 hour day.
That way, one will find a velocity of 795 mph for the "Rockefeller-Rothschild" Compound of the UN, and the responsory of world communist conspiracy, and the entire route of the 40th parallel North. 795 mph is 76% of 1038, which matches the cosine
of a 40 degree angle, etc.
Eia ergo! they used to say in Latin, and -- quantum mutatus ab illo! How much things
can change in a New York minute. Ita ex, magnanimiter crucem sustine, so carry the cross magnanimously.
would somebody be putting the innocent minded on here? As fast and incomprehensible as skulls and bones at Yale, 64 High Street, New Haven, Connecticut: and too fast to think a way out of souped-up
pine boxes, but to bury common sense alive, since that cannot be serious in any century or dark windowless room.
Nevertheless, "Latin does not keep the pot boiling",
of course, but the numbers would be in tune, "right in tune," if they could tune an electric guitar, like Saturn in Aries: the chords and notes to fit in well with the rock and roll songs they are playing, et cetera.
At least for the sake of strangeness, a curious brochure, and the late night radio,
the cosmic weirdness would be for real. Therefore, let science not pretend that there is any meaning in any of the things they are saying, for all the paint and geometry, except for
"going mobile, beep beep!" like whoville, and the drums of the moons on fire, to keep on moving.
All is the same, in the woods or the city, to an air-conditioned gypsy, yet "the gods are just, and of our pleasant vices make instruments to plague us". The check is still in the mail, and when was the last time tourists
went 795 mph for free, with hat and sunglasses, and not to notice? Thusly, hang on to the wallet or the purse, and buckle up, if it seems too casual. If the money is already gone, what other things could be missing?
Mark Twain once said, "there isn't a parallel of latitude but thinks it would have been the equator if it had had its rights," and for more exact numbers to decimal places, when computing the heliocentric
spins, all that is needed are minutes and seconds of arc. For example, in the case of Manhattan, the complete latitude with minutes and seconds of arc is 40”47’24, which brings a more precise rotational velocity of 785.5637707372525 mph.
With the uniform curvature of arcs of latitude around the Earth, the numbers can seem to run on and on, almost like Pi, to pass magically through walls ... but never find a home. Even a cathedral
bum or scientist can see that with only small changes in distance North or South, one will soon begin to discover immediate changes in spin.
How about that ... ?! In chess notation
"?!" means a dubious move and "??" is a blunder. "!?" means interesting, impressive and fantastic, even for croquet in the rolling yard, when one realizes how much is going on right under one's feet "!?"
Look out for the "Noteboom", and "dxc4!" in chess. Where the board and notes do not fall over, everyone
is an athlete now, and just for the coffee. He who does not panic or wreck the board -- files, rows, and pieces -- must have a lot
of skill: and the situation becomes more challenging and trippy when longitude is brought into consideration.
For example, St. Petersburg, Russia and Alexandria, Egypt are both very close to the 30th Meridian East, exactly. Situated right about
on it, practically speaking, and they are always there, but Alexandria further to the South is going 368 mph faster all the time than St. Petersburg to the North. One could imagine that with enough time Alexandria would eventually break away, and St.
Petersburg would have to fall behind, but even with all the years, for so many loops, it never happens.
For all the amnesia and deja vu, these two cities, for those who
perhaps think they may have forgotten all this before, have remained always on the exact same line of meridian, even though supposedly flying through space at speeds with 368 mph of difference: with Alexandria at 887.3553114207156 mph, from 31”13’N,
compared with St. Petersburg at 519.749781017243 mph, from 59”56’20N.
to heliocentrism, to save quiet appearances for a day, it all makes sense. Even though the latitudes are supposedly traveling many different velocities at once, somehow the longitudes and their neighborhoods never get mixed up.
However, between so many lines of practical geography around the world, this should be something impossible for a reasonable person to believe. The place would be utterly scrambled, in extremis ab centrum usque
ad coelum, from the center to the heavens, if this were true. There would not even be room left in little places or big ones for the joy of Pi, as perambulations of 3.1459265358979323846 go, or the circular continuations of the seven days of the week.
Yet between God
and Aristotle, and the Great Pyramid of Giza, and Machu Picchu, there is no figure of geometry so simple and continuous as the circle. With certainty, and that of a continuous function, Pi distributes itself evenly over all magnitudes in circles and spheres.
For instance, as any circle of the Earth can only be for one speed at a time, so can the entire sphere of it have only one speed per time, on any given day.
Known like a secret
that even if kept still goes everywhere, Pi is a simple function of circumference divided by diameter; and one, therefore, does not actually even need to know the longitude to know velocity of latitude, since the supposed speed along a parallel is
evenly distributed throughout. As any part fits the whole, according to the integration of Pi, so is any parallel of division to the circle from which it came.
For instance, a standard
roulette wheel has 38 divisions of longitude” per latitude, where the Earth has 360, and both can spin only one velocity per time, as per littlest time integrated in all the time. The turret, cone, ball pockets, and wheelhead of a roulette wheel all
go with only one speed. As 1/38 equals .0263157, and 1/360 equals .0027777, all parts for the circle and of the sphere are necessarily equable in spatial volume and rate, equivalently as to the one larger one of which they are parts.
Since Pi distributes on the same basis through all circles and spheres, it
is one simple universal curve, a poco a poco, through them all. From circumference to area of a circle, and surface area and volume of a sphere, Pi = c/d = a/r^2 = 4a/r^2 = (3/4)V/r^3.
Whereas the circle is a simple body, of course, so a sphere: and the continuous function that is Pi relates equally well to any integrated measure, as it remains the circular function par excellence. Therefore, one does not need to
know longitude to figure speed of latitude, since all longitudes are as one according to the parallel of the circle, even as all latitudes are as one, according to whatever corner of the sphere, that would have no label for direction, or up or down. Since
it does not matter what longitude is to figure out speed of rotation for a latitude, then it does not matter what the latitude is either, in the end overall, because as Pi goes through a circle, so it also goes through a sphere -- and one speed will go for
the whole pie and ball of wax, as much as the never ending story.
In a true sphere, where science would build on strength of common sense, the up and down, and to the side, are arbitrary distinctions. A form
of Socratic justice abides in the quality of the measure, by the division that penetrates all things; and it should be as clear to the common concern that the solid continents cannot
be going more than one speed at a time. The Earth is an integral sphere, and the land masses are condensed together, well compacted with impressive Earthy compression. If the place were spinning at different speeds at once, because of "gravitation" from the
sun, to account for the universal 24 hour day, the land would be rending itself apart at the seams.
If "contingency arises from motion, which, though caused necessarily in so far
as uniform, it gives rise to difformity owing to parts."-5 Therefore, call no day happy by heliocentrism, "nulla dies felix." Rather than fostering life on Earth, the Sun would be destroying it. It woud be cosmic disaster all over the place, utter ruin on
such a scale that there would be no space left for "kojo no tsuki", moonlight over a ruined castle, or cherry wine and tears before bedtime for Chicken Little.
the sky is falling, sunlight may seem percussive too, sort of splitting itself and visible things apart, that were in the dark, as it brings out distinctions in an illuminating way; but for a simple body with density at least like a beach ball, or the Earth,
all points become as one in terms of Pi, and in terms of angular velocity per instant of time. As 1/38 of 1.00 is .0263157 and 1/360 is .0027777, so the uniform way of Pi maintains that 1/38 of it, (C/D), is .0826707 and 1/360 is .0087261, pro forma multitudinis hic et ubique terrarum.
If heliocentrism were correct, the world would be "all in pieces, all coherence gone, the sun lost and the earth,
and all would be called in doubt, and no man's wit could well direct him where to look for a compass for their way". It would even destroy the rational equalities of Pi, vis-a-vis the circle, and undermine the basics of simple awareness and cognitive psychology,
vis-a-vis the sphere.
If the Earth spins at different and separable speeds along its latitudes,
hell's bells, then it should be as simple to rend itself asunder; but evidently every day everyone sees that it is not. If the Earth were in motion in space, orbiting the sun, it would have to be with a uniform motion conformable to the whole, otherwise
it would be plowed up sand and tunes in the shredder.
If looking at a map could leave any doubts,
with the 30th Meridian highlighted through the Gulf of Finland and the Black and Mediterranean Seas, maybe from some uncertainty from something like volatility of the waters in between St. Petersburg and Alexandria, or for some other reason, then
consider a set of 8 cities along 4 closely approximate Meridians, all on contiguous territory, with no boats and no water in between, to wit:
Acapulco, Mexico: 16”51’49N, 99”52’57W @992.965193260843 mph
Isachsen, Canada: 78”46’59N, 103”29’59W @201.8353239407114 mph
Venzuela: 10”39’N, 71”38’W @1019.7103966946445 mph
Chile: 53”10’S, 70”56”W @622.0201515793425 mph
Angarsk, Russia: 52”34’N, 103”49’E
Singapore, China: 1”22’N, 103”48’E @1037.2881768418685
Alexandria, Egypt: 31”13’N, 29”58’E @887.3553114207156 mph
Durban, South Africa: 29”53’S, 31”03’E @899.6280343062893 mph
And if any of these well connected locations traded places, and went as fast as some other, like Quito (00”15’ S, 78”35’
W @ 1038 mph) or St. Petersburg (59”57’ N, 30”19’ E @ 519.749781017243 mph) there is no room for doubt that such exchanges would mess up their days and nights even more all year.
What a riven sphere of chaos it would be, if things were so, and only for the sake of a biased motive in astronomy! There would be
no peace and no line of proportion left in the world, and every nest and its charm would come undone.
St. Petersburg, Russia is so close to the 60th parallel and, therefore, cosine .5, that it would have a 12 hour day and night, if it went as fast as Quito. This means that during the summer solstice there, the sun would be visible
for 9 hours and 26 minutes, not 18 hours and 52 minutes; and during the winter solstice, the sun would be visible for 2 hours and 56 minutes, not 5 hours and 52 minutes.
Because of the spherical curvature of the Earth, and the universal 24 hour day, heliocentrism is
forever falling out of sorts -- an embarrassment to Famous Grouse whisky everywhere, and science itself, hoisting itself with its own petard. Not only does the confusion, contra naturam, subvert space as it undermines common sense, it wrecks time.
every place were estranged, refried, and spinning as fast as Quito, instead of the universal 24 hour day and night, there would be a very different terrestrial experience worldwide. For a few examples, Manhattan and Salamanca would have an 18 hour
and 6 minute day; Paris would have a 15 hour and 44 minute day; Alexandria, Egypt would have a 20 hour and 33 or 34 minute day. As before, St. Petersburg, Russia, with the ice, would have a 12 hour day and night; Augusta, Georgia would be swerving along for
a crispy green, 20 hour and 7 minute day; and Vancouver, British Columbia would have a 15 hour and 44 or 45 minute day … throughout the seasons.
As the day is a circle and a circle the day, it seems mankind must suffer for trucks and repair;
and if Quito, on the other hand, were going as slow as Manhattan and Salamanca, it would be for a 31 hour and 45 or 46 minute one; as slow as Paris, it would be for 35 hours and 52 or 53 minutes; as slow as Alexandria, Egypt, it would be 28 hours per day.
If it were skating along like St. Petersburg, Russia, it would be on the glide at 46 hours and 37 or 38 minutes per day; if like Augusta, Georgia, it played for velocity of the place in space and lost golf balls, it would be in the calendar for 365 days a
year, pro rata, to the tune of 28 hours and 45 minutes each one. If it was day tripping on excursion and moving to the radio tunes like Vancouver, British, Columbia, it would be enjoying an expansive day of 37 hours and 46 or 47minutes all year …
throughout the wonderful seasons.
For the simple schedule of time and space, heliocentrism falls out, with extreme velocities and crazy clocks. Shattered everywhere on the wrong side of Occam’s razor, that plurality should not be posited without necessity,
and certainly that confusion should not be increased, “pluralitas non est ponenda sine necessitate,” it turns the smallest world and naval observations we have upside down.
In putting time before space, for the sake of the universal 24 hour day, which must be done since
everyone knows that the day is 24 hours, heliocentrism tries to separate elements that on Earth and in nature cannot be separated. Since time necessitates space, as much as space necessitates time, they are as inseperable as the circle. Like the only two sides
of the straight line in Occam’s razor, there cannot be one without the other.
For a technical talk shop sentence, "de Newtonio", therefore, "de motu in principio", au milieu d'une phrase cientifico, say, one may say, almost to the secret society: that the multitude of natural orders between them, time and space, that arise in the interstitial continuum, beginning even
from Cambridge-on-Cam, and Libor of the Bank of England, or Greenwich Mean Time, do verily comprise all the options, operations, and operative events, so many and multivarious, that are at play in dilations of work and energy, however they may be for
market options and puts, in vis situ potens, and computational by whatever degrees derivative (accidental, coincidental, or efficient means considered, of course) so that by computing the figure, it is veridical that time and space are simply and
of formal necessity mutual in terms of the natural world. Vis-à-vis, sc., they weave the terrestrial matrix by perpetual compromise and concurrence of savoir faire, crown, and claim -- circa ceteris paribus. And, therefore, the simple circular
continuations of the days and weeks, and phases of the Moon, pass the lot around, even as something in common and by convention for all with wits to see.
By the dog of Egypt, there is time because everything in creation cannot take place at the same time. Everything cannot occur instantaneously, as much as everything is not infinite,
and natural motion cannot take place in an instant. Natural motion is gradual, and there is space because everything gradual in nature cannot happen in the same place. All things that could happen can happen only with a sufficient range of spatial
distribution. For whatever the occurrence, there must at least be the sufficiency. As Keith Richards said, "you need some space and some time. Space and time is everything", even
if "less is more".
Far out, and if someone would imagine that using the formula for
angular velocity in a tricky way somehow would save heliocentrism, because there as radius increases velocity increases, v=wr, yet it does not save it, because radius represents the complete extent and includes all intermediate points of the domain.
Psalter of St. Jerome, one of the petitions is for a "spatium bene vivendi", "a space well lived", or "a space of good living", which represents also a generous disposition of time. Without the space, there would not be the fire, not even the
image in the mind, and without the fire there would not be the time, and without those there would not be the breath or the spirit, as much as there would not be any means to begin.
Within its own space and time, the Psalter of St. Jerome says, "Ut hi versiculi proficiant mihi ad vitam aeternam, et ad remissionem omnium peccatorum, et ad spatium bene vivendi ...", "that these verses may profit me to eternal life, remission of sins,
and to a space well lived", exempli gratia.
There must be a principle of energy of whatever presence, particle, or wave, that may be in occurrence, because there is no time or space without some quality, ens inquantum ens. Nothing that exists exists without
some formal qualification of being, an ultimate way of substance; and there is no quality of being without energy, as there can be no energy without quality of being, at least a little charism of something to carry a circle. Even if only for a machine or dead
wood, this much should be clear, for instance, that light is also energy, that illuminates time and characterizes space, as much as light would add to things by illustrative illumination.
To simplify with a notepad, therefore, the heliocentric confusion of Uraboros lost in the cosmos,
the old dragon swallowing his tail, rather than denying that he is there, hiding in the aether, it may be simple enough to remember a little algebra class and the universal formula d = r x t.
Distance and space, distance as space, and time for time, where rate is energy, and the way things are is simple enough even between megalodon and the beach. The elementary formula of distance, space, and time provides a
universal sign for how all measurable things work. As much as time, space, and energy are the big three in common, pro rata originum, and form a natural trinity wherever they go, one will explain the other two.
The ocean is wide as heaven is high, from
the stars and moon to the earth, and there is measure in existence and proportion in all things. Ex astris lunaque ad terram est modo in toto rebus -- yet for the sake of appearances,
and the universal 24 hour day, which are undeniable, heliocentrism puts time separated illogically before space, and makes confusion out of all other normal weights and measures.
Anyhow a sliver of hope remains, that the sway of common sense may yet prevail, since conclusive
proof and spaghetti provided by Foucault’s pendulum show that the Earth is not moving, esse quam videri, if there could be any doubts. All any reasonable person would need to do, to be certain, is place an interferometer underneath the
bob, in the center where it swings back and forth. Since Michelson-Morley conducted the first successful interferometry experiments in 1887, they all have shown conclusively that heliocentrism is not possible.
Besides the negative results of all interferometer
and aether drift experiments for heliocentrism, the Earth is still one simple body, one for one. Incidentals and accidentals like the seven seas and varying terrain, from the Grand Canyon to Mt. McKinley and the Himalayas, do not change the substantial
priority that the Earth is one -- the only one that it is, and therefore a truly simple body in space. It has a simple quality of identification in itself that Scotus called “haecceitas”, which means “thisness”, as in “this that
is unique.”-6 A distinction of authenticity, haecceitas is a common property of all simple bodies and simple motions in space, and the Earth has it, hic et ubique terrarum.
All over its unique place, unified in accordance with reality, tellecor is one true media, with haecceitas, and can only go one speed at a time, with a uniform motion conformable to
the whole. Otherwise the land would be coming apart in motion in destabilized zones, "and if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. And if a house be divided against itself, that house cannot stand."
Et si regnum in se dividatur, non potest stare regnum illud. Et si domus super semet ipsam dispertiatur, non poterit domus illa stare.-7
However, an Earth completely at rest in as many regions, territories, and fields as there could be can still account easily for the universal
24 hour day, and all the little details. As small truths are in agreement with others, and with the greater truth of all, "life can be really simple, but we insist on making it complicated".
They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and perhaps
"not something imposed but something immanent".-8 As much as that may be, there should also be something true about it, since they do not say beauty is a lie. Even if the truth may be difficult to accept, if not something imposed but something immanent
too, the truth is not a form of immanence that needs to move for it to be true. For "truth is one, and in it there is no place for progress", veritas veritatum primordialium.
The true beginning does not need objects to be set in motion, as an example, since it already was so. Things in motion give occasional evidence of what is true, but they do not make the truth formally true. To be what
it is, since it does not change, something substantial and preexistent like the truth does not need occasional objects except for illustration.
truth simplifies without the necessities of problems, even though problems exist; and logic as much as nature would assimilate the truth, it goes without saying; and logic is also the logic predicated of simple facts and evidence.
Nothing can tie science together better than the truth, and Scotus would say that there is infinite logic on one side of awareness and
finite logic on the other. The finite logic makes discoveries of the finite, and infers the infinite by assimilation of the impressions that runneth over; but the finite is still as logical as logic would be, as is the infinite, even though finitude is always
Since logic is common to them both, the division between them is something else, and something more than
mere quantity, even if there is not a word for it. Something ineffable, yet logical and clear, divides them, as much as the infinite cannot be quantified, or the difference
between the infinite and the finite numbered, or even the finite in its total domain all counted up when many times it runs beyond practical numerabilty. The division is something else, therefore, per se, even above exponential code, since it also is true
that mere quantity cannot give rise to consciousness or self-awareness.
Since it is as real and simple as a sphere in constant accord with actual facts, the earth in its physical
domain is even like the truth itself, and of an order that does not need to move or be moved to be true. Whether what is true about it is taken in some metaphysical or physical sense of magnitude, spheres form a category of simple bodies, with unique geometrical properties as a class, that no other figures have.
For example, for any given volume, the sphere
is the shape that has the smallest and most efficient surface area, and the way one sphere relates to another is a continuous function. This is why it appears in nature so much, from bubbles and water drops, to stars and planets. The motion of a sphere is
simple, and any motion of a simple body is conformable as a whole to the point of origin.
A cue ball or baseball can only go one speed at a time, of course, and be in one place
at a time. For a painful example from the world of sports, if Ron Cey, "the penguin", from professional baseball, was ever accidentally struck in the head by a curve ball, unfortunately, that was where it would have had to be at that time, betwixt and between
from a bad pitch.
No matter how twisted the course, the essential uniformity of motion in a solid sphere, that is not coming apart, is a natural law of physics. For it is one conbobulation, one spherical wheel, that moves from point to point, one point
at a time, and the craziest knuckleball or trickiest golf shot cannot defy the simplicity of nature. The motion must start in one place and end in another, having essential uniformity, de moto quoque sive ab utroque, from the "causae per se", the efficient
cause, the whole way, going only one uniform speed at a time, and being in one place at a time.
A ping pong ball as well as an expensive yo-yo from China always spins one speed at a time. The uniform speed of the spin may increase or decrease; but it always goes one simple velocity per the little points of unit time; and it
is that simple that the Earth cannot spin at two different speeds, or be in two different places at once.
With a little motorized pin in a baseball, the whole baseball will rotate conformably with the singular speed applied per time by the pin’s engine,
even as the speeds are increased or decreased. There could be settings from fast, medium, to slow, and whatever the setting is, from fastest to slowest, that is how fast the ball spins.
If acentric cosmologists raced around with office chairs with
spherical wheels and crashed into walls, blind as bats, and went out the windows off the cliffs, it would be the same. Like the compass of a code, every curve in 3-D proceeds one integral point at a time, and every point along its line is one solution to the
equation. Otherwise things lose their form and come apart.
If some cogitators woud like to analyze further, perhaps enjoying this sort of pain, "this grief passing all griefs beside"-9, never delusion of petty arbitration like this, because having had experience of things like merry-go-rounds and Ferris wheels, they say that when a big spinning wheel is going around, it feels different on the outside from the inside, because the outside is going faster,
yet motion is a quality, and as a quality a simple derivative of the origin of its source. And particular leverage and radial velocity from the center of a wheel are not exactly the same in all cases.
As much as inside or out, four of the basic qualities identified by the ancient Greeks, for fundamentals and change, were hot or cold and
wet or dry. "From the very earliest times, mankind divided all physical matter into the four elements: fire, earth, air, and water ".-10 The correspondence of the four most basic poles of natural qualities as in hot-fire, dry-earth, wet-water, and cold-air
all necessarily involved terms predicable of motion, and subsistent stability too, as much as Dante would say that "heat cannot be separated from fire, or beauty from The Eternal".
Like elementals in binary codes, the qualities would characterize the way things are and the way they subsist. There are at least four more, like bitter or sweet, and rest or motion, that
exist in nature as essential characteristics and signs of most basic properties.
Like salt and oil, and the tension of harmony and strife, according to Empedocles,
even if they add up to complex positions, the qualities and elements remain simple in themselves and dipolar across a continuum. By the terms of their own properties of self-adherence, they are simply being what they are across the natural continuum.
"It makes more sense, therefore, to think that many things have common elements, as words share letters, rather than assume that anything can exist without them".-11 And
besides the fact that it is true, if it seems trivial to say that motion is of an elemental quality, like hot or cold and wet or dry, it is because heliocentrism and relativity would have everybody fooled out of their minds, and everything in motion,
and nothing at rest. As Leibniz said, in keeping with the false heliocentric rubric of ubiquitous motion, "there is not any one body that is perfectly and entirely at rest, but we frame [only] an abstract notion of rest by considering the thing mathematically."-12
The reason then for saying that motion is of a simple and authentic quality, a principle in contrast
to rest, is that after so many years in the land of the lost, in the abyss of heliocentrism and relativity, authenticity itself has little or no value across the board. Authenticity has been wasted and drugged with weird science, buried under a flood of uncertainties
and deception. Yet there is still a fundamental difference between an object in motion and an object at rest, and the two distinctions account for a wide range of oppositions.
Since modern philosophy makes itself obscure, incomprehensible, or dizzy, in its search after the nature of things, from
constantly going round and round, they imagine that the Earth is also going round and round, and capable of moving in many directions at once too. It does not really make sense, however, and the theory is merely of an emotional appearance, which rises out
of their own internal condition; and by mere mental projection of that which they wish, they suppose it to be the reality of nature. Therefore, "they think that there is nothing stable or permanent, but only flux and motion, and that the world is always full
of every sort of motion and change".-13
Contrary to heliocentrism, however, and relativity,
everything in the universe is not in motion, or even so-called relative motion. Motion, in fact, is in contrast to rest, as much as hot to cold and wet to dry.
generally, rest is the contrary of motion", and rest is existentially substantial.-14 Something as real as the day, whatever the weather is like, whatever time of year, it already is plainly evident to everyone that the Earth is at rest, without having to
think about it too much; and "all lovers of learning are agreed that speeches and words are suprefluous when the facts are evident to all."-15
Therefore, "that which acts as producing movement or rest is a principle and a substance"-16, and motion is a qualification overall
uniquely distinct from rest. It may be an effect as much as a prime quality, or an affective quality, and an "affection", in the Aristotelian sense of a temporay condition or special affect/effect. Aristotle defined motion as the passing from potency to art in some subject that is acted upon by an agency. For motion to occur, for the elements involved,
the subject acted upon must have the proper disposition with respect to the potency targeted for actualization, where the proper disposition would also stem from a given quality or qualities.
chemistry and fuel, a specific quality in an element at times may increase the energy value and acitivity more than some other generic quantity, which does not share the exact same attributes to the same degree. Usability, therefore, may also be a matter of
excellence, from the power of the quality involved, where sometimes less is more. A lesser amount from one potion or chemical mechanism may represent more force than a greater amount of something else. Quality as much as geometry is inescapable ab origine,
of course, and constitutes an important part of physics and natural theories of motion, etc.
some would draw intellectual distinctions between immanent and local motion -- but, however such discussions could be, in the end, the quality is the quality is the quality, as much as a rose is a rose is a rose. Whether science may see a motion as immanent
in a species or local in space and time, the motion or action must also occur within some part or aspect of a plenum, συν πλήρωμα, and there will be always some quality of some kind involved.
"And wisdom is justified by all her children", yet Einstein's relativist school instruction that everything is
in motion, and nothing at rest, would also mean that everything changes, and nothing at all remains the same. No kind or category would remain simply as it is, ens inquatum ens, and any simplicity abiding in the natural order would have to give way to ultimate
confusion and chaos; for "if all things are in motion, nothing will be true; everything therefore will be false. But it has been shown that this is impossible."-17
Therefore, even if all natural motion represents change of some kind, and all change involves some sort of motion,
yet many things in nature do remain the same, since there is a quality of sameness as species endure. Simple facts are often the strongest, and the more things change, the more they stay the same: "for truth is one, and in it there is no place for progress".
"Plus ca change plus c’est le meme chose".
After all, is there not a fine blade of grass or happy mushroom
greater than the mythologies and vanities of all the nations?
Yet no progress without truth, and the substantial record of concurrence demonstrated from all aether drift tests and light-beam interferometry
experiments, from Michelson-Morely in 1887, down to today, has shown that motion is an authentic quality in contrast to rest, and that the earth is not moving. Galaev's aether drift and radiowave experiments of 1998-99, and his optical tests of 2002, also
substantiated that motion is a simple quality, and that absolute motion does exist -- "absolute" here not in a Newtonian sense of infinite, but "absolute" in the sense of authentic and simply real. As Reginald Cahill summed up the findings: "these very different
experiments show ... 'absolute' [authentic] motion is one of the most startling but suppressed discoveries of the twentieth century."-18
It is the same way with motion as ontology, and all things in motion always have at least four fundamental attributes of any quality or measure, in
2. Degree of concentration
3. Level of refinement (excellence, efficiency)
4. Kind of origin
Everything that exists, whether considered formally or materially, is in some quality and number, and follows from fundamental
characteristics of elements, that run like ABC’s from one extreme to the other. And the spinning wheel of a merry-go-round only turns one speed per time. Even if it tilts or wobbles,
it all tilts or wobbles together, and it cannot clock two or more different speeds at once.
It is the same principle in all times and places, that a wheel or sphere
that is sound will have only one volume of velocity per instant. All various radial extensions from the center will go about conformably with the integral motion of the axis at the center, otherwise
there would be hidden in it the beginning of some broken division. If not for an undermining contingency, complexionis scala adversa, a wheel has one uniform velocity, turning from one axis of origin, as much as simple things like merry-go-rounds and the earth.
Because to an accidental tourist on a Ferris wheel the overall force of motion may feel greater to him on the outside does not mean that the spinning is going around different speeds from
the middle to the edge. The radius of a circle, whether in a wheel or a sphere, represents the domain and is like the beam of a catapult. When Edward I built Warwolf, the largest
trebuchet in Britain at the time, it was with a long beam because the greater length meant the English army could use the siege engine with more advantage, launching bigger and heavier rocks
against the Scots in their castles. And however long the beam, when it launched the heavy stones and quarried rocks, it launched them with one uniform motion from end to end.
So it goes from the axis of rotation.
If there was fellow A situated at the edge of
a large Ferris wheel, and another fellow B at the center, the leverage of momentum gathered by A on the outside would be more mechanically advantageous to launching him further, if it were necessary, than B, because the mechanical advantage of leverage
created for launching in the case of A is increased by the greater length of radius. While the circular velocity between them from the center is the same for the unit domain, in so many revolutions per measure of space and time, as they go around, the greater
leverage of momentum for launching far away into the distance may be gathered in position A, on the outside.
In any event, a pitcher naturally throws at the
last from the hand and fingers not the elbow or shoulder, if science should say so. From there, it is more mechanically advantageous and better for launching than from the center. Heavy weights and knuckleheads will fly farther, if they are launched from further
out on a big wheel or catapult, but the big wheel turns one speed per instance of time from the center, just like the arm of a catapult.
A moving vehicle and a moving wheel can only go one speed at a time, for one place at a time. A simple body cannot clock two or more different speeds at once, no matter how the heliocentric scientism would escape reality;
and it does not make any difference between a sphere or standard wheel. In terms of simple velocity, the difference between a sphere and a wheel is a distinction without a difference. A car or motorcycle that ran on perfectly spherical tires instead of the
normal ones, whenever they would get a ticket for speeding, would all be the same business.
things will be distinct and clear to the man who does not hurry". Ab urbe condita, "haste is blind and improvident".
Whatever rpms, the rate of
measure and pi radians would have an essentially uniform and conformable number for the whole, as another simple body in motion.
Ab urbe condita, 753 BC, and AUC, area under the curve, so it goes with a wagon wheel down a hill, or a spherical one as well, rolling the axial source of motion in extension through all the parts. As any one
radius goes one speed, so all the other radii and segments within any circles of the sphere will go the same speed, from surface to center. Like the teeth of a comb, the comb all goes the same
The exactamundo rotary motion of helicopter blades, or a lawn mower, or
the beaters of an electric hand-held mixer are integrated the same way, going one for one with the speed applied. They can go slow, medium, or fast, but they all go uniformly with one speed at a time.
If some would continue to imagine that somehow the Earth could be in flight multiple speeds at once, because an administrator from NASA
sent them a Christmas card, or an envelope with money, and to satisfy the bizarre demands of heliocentrism, and because it is a sphere, remember that motion is a simple quality and traceable to its source.
If two separate runners on a large circular track are positioned with one on the far outside circuit, and one on the nearest inside
circuit, the one on the outside will have to run faster to keep up for a go-around, because he would be covering a greater distance each lap, and they would also have separate origins of motion. If they were only connected by a string, to keep the string level
in line between them, as they would go around the track, the one on the inside route will not have to run as fast, and they would have separate origins of motion. Two separate runners, connected only by a string, would not be composed as a simple body and
would not have a conformable origin of motion.
