"Nothing comes sailing by itself", said Themistocles,
and "I have with me two gods. Persuasion and Compulsion."
Galileo answered, and "I have one more. Confusion."
And his notional rules
of equivalence in relatively false inertial frames of reference, and suggestions of heliocentric invariance, and undetectable motion
of the Earth, as supposedly "unaccelerated", and the theory of gravity that says horizontal and vertical motions are independent of each other, yet compounded and equivalent, are false and unscientific hoaxem.
In other words,
with complex figures and calculations in a file closet, if the subject is not overly confused by weird science, people may start to recognize that the earth is authentically inertial, even stationary, and that the sun goes from east to west around it.
Horizontal motion ad infinitum and its putative independence from the vertical were value items
for Galileo because of the power hidden in the suggestion. A concept or vision like that which would flood the mind with impressions of infinity could cause an overwhelmed state. People could think about it for a long time and begin to wonder what it means, if they were not stoned, or what
it was they had smoked. If they were not fooled, maybe they could be hypnotized?
A mind overwhelmed or startled by an impression beyond its comprehension can be made vulnerable even to mild powers of hypnotic induction. If a weaker subject has been startled or awed, this can open a
subtle step into manipulation and mild hypnosis, and for the sake of heliocentrism.
the fourth suggestion of the level and inclined plane ad infinitum, from the earlier series of ramps and rolling balls in Galileo's lab, may become a subtle technique of manipulative induction. Nonetheless, many people commit a mathematical and logical error and give the fourth ramp a pass, even though it is not a valid method of scientific investigation.
ulterior motives, to support an otherwise metaphysical opinion, that was merely philosophical preference and speculation, Galileo devised a sneaky system for working in the lab. However, none of what Galileo was doing was of any real scientific value in determining that the Earth orbits the Sun, yet the vision of infinite motion along a horizontal plane, in "absolute space", would dispose the mind to contemplate
the mesmerising world of heliocentric "invariance": and the worlds of false equivalence, in so many relative inertial frames of reference, where the astronomical motions of the Earth, spinning and flying, would remain sensibly undetectable, of course, and "unaccelerated" due to gravity and inertia, yet somehow "scientific".
How tortured and ironic the scene becomes for science. Sensuum defectui. Not a little child, but a wagon of oxymorons and an idiot with lack of
evidence shall lead them.
A strange way of reversals, since people can tell with common sense that the Earth is not orbiting clouds or the sky, and
not the winds or hurricanes, and not the Moon, and not fire, heat, or daylight as they are, and not the shadow of an eclipse, and not Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury, Regulus, or Mars, either, and so on ... then there should be no scientific reason to
believe that the Earth orbits the Sun in contradistinction of all these others should there? To distinguish the Earth at rest from a train in motion, therefore, is one thing like so many
others, that is so different from the Sun, since the sun appears so big and impressive, like Helios Apollo, when magnified and reflected many times over in the earth's atmosphere. Therefore, the day star may cause confusion about which is in motion
between it and the Earth and the calendar for the year.
Yet besides the special nature of the Sun, Newtonian fields of gravitation do not move anything; and when pilots venture into low earth orbit, where they can observe somewhat outside the magnifying affects on sunlight of
the earth's lower atmosphere, the sun looks smaller. In fact, from outer space, it looks as small as a tennis ball in the distance, with a crown of spokes extending out from it. The closer a crew gets to it from a few hundred miles altitude, the smaller it
appears, when only set against the deep black background of outer outer space.
To overcome good judgment, Galileo added a spider's web of skillfully deceptive scientific materialist induction to support his theory. The law of falling bodies was an expansive principle
of equivalence, a great doctrine of equivocation among all weights and sizes, and the hypnotic circuits
and joints of the brain.
Since according to heliocentrism, the force of gravity acts on all bodies alike, regardless of shape, size, composition, and density, then it must be that the influence of universal gravitation
acts regardless of velocity as well, because the distance of fall and weight of an object are inclusive factors affecting velocity; and it is not supposed to be gravity that makes a difference
in velocity but only atmospheric or other extraneous incidentals, et cetera, or old-fashioned impetus and momentum. Since the longer a cannonball falls, and the heavier it is, the
more for acceleration, heliocentrism adds for convolution of distortion that vertical motion is independent of horizontal, and horizontal motion is independent of vertical. Galileo's rules in vain would say that under the influence of gravity alone
all bodies fall with the same uniform rate, regardless of kind, and direction, and that there is a putative equivalence yet independence of the horizontal and the vertical,
and the vertical and the horizontal, in "compound motion".
For the sake of interpretation,
the horizontal is exclusive of the vertical, as free fall would supposedly be independent of weight. In terms
of gravitation and inertia, it becomes evident then that not only are all weights equivocal, but all
motions as well. This residual principle of returning equivocation is so powerful with confusion that it is said with a straight face that due to gravity alone all falling
bodies descend at the same rate, regardless of horizontal motion.
To believe Galileo, horizontal motion does not affect vertical descent and time suspended in free fall, and the place to test this sort of thing would have to be
in more marginal situations of equivocation and insufficiency. For example, if at a Chuck E. Cheese restaurant a red ball is rolled down a chute, and it flies out laterally across the room, would it not hit the ground about the same time as a green ball dropped vertically from about the same
Not exactly, and "by spurning trifles little by little one may fall to the depths."(1) But it could
be close enough for Galileo and spin doctors of heliocentrism, and they say that the difference among these things for falling is in the air resistance anyway --- not the actual density
and weight of the objects involved. Some things are not so easy to tell at first, as they are later, so little tricks could imply great and strange cosmic conclusions. If it is only a matter of interpretation, micromanagement of context and controlling the information may go a long way, since often things that make an objective difference over time do not make significant differences right away.
And what difference should it make, if the green ball is dropped from the top of the chute express or from the
exit point of the red one, that flies out across the room? If the weight and horizontal direction of an object in free fall make no difference, then neither should the acceleration. If acceleration makes no difference, due to gravity, then neither should altitude.
If somebody jumps from twenty stories, it should be the same thing as jumping from a desk, for the sake of gravitation, and due to distance for acceleration, as much as both cases stand in relation to each other as one to one, and would be equally divisible
by one, which is what the force of gravity equals anyway when inserted in any practical applications.
sort of inductive method about the horizontal and the vertical by oddness of termination is what led Newton to postulate that a minnie ball fired from a musket would land at the same
time as another dropped from shoulder height, which is truly stupid, as stupid as saying all altitudes and accelerations are equal in terms of gravity.(2) If horizontal and vertical motion are independent of each other, imagine firing a gun horizontally and dropping a bullet from the same shoulder
height as the gun. When the two bullets land, they will be far apart. One will have traveled hundreds of yards while
the other falls a few feet in a simple vertical line. According to Newton and Galileo, they will both reach the ground within
exactly the same quarter second! This is what it would mean for the bullet's horizontal motion to be independent of its vertical, but this is not what happens. If there is any doubt about
the follies of gravitation, fire a high powered rifle from a tripod support set low to the ground, and drop another bullet from the same height. They will not land at the same time.
Suppose a bullet dropped from a certain height takes one second to reach the ground. Then according to the theory of independence
of horiztonal from vertical motion, in gravitation, a bullet shot horizontally from the same height would also hit
the ground in one second. This is not what results with arrows much less bullets, but the insanity continues;
and they say that even if a more powerful gun would send the bullet further, that bullet would fall to the ground in one second also, if only the Earth were perfectly flat. They would say that bullets shot horizontally with different amounts of force travel different distances but fall at the same rate
due to gravity.
According to the theory, for the first second a bullet in the air falls 16 feet towards the ground. Then in proportion to the universal gravitational equation for free fall acceleration, and little "g"(9.8), it falls 32ft/s2 over any following seconds. For example, it is said that a bullet dropped from 64 feet will take two seconds to to hit the ground and so on.
A marble rolled off an elevation the same height as the bullets would supposedly take precisely the same time to fall to the ground as both the
bullets: the one that is merely dropped and the one that is actually fired. Ridiculous as it could be, the horizontal
and vertical in motion are not equivalent yet independent from each other anyway, since they clearly are two different directions integrated within a plane or a sphere.
However, Galileo had a better and more marginal,
more equivocal and insufficient, illustration than Newton's musket balls. Galileo started the abstraction with a ship moving
at a steady and smooth course on a most calm sea. On a sea of tranquility, a marble rolled off a table on board ship would take the same interval to reach the floor, whether the ship was
sailing at a steady speed or standing still tied to moorings in the harbor. In the example, the idea is that
the ship's lateral motion across a calm sea should have no perceivable effect on the marble's vertical fall --- in the margin. From this example, Galileo would conclude that any moving object's horizontal and vertical motion take place independently.
But for gravity and a game of the fool once removed, the heliocentric principle
of relative inertia in relative frames of reference ends up contradicitng this idea by equivocation. The which
in the which-is-which matters, "for, needless to say, there are not two ways of making an object well, of realising well the work conceieved; there is only one, and it must not be missed".(3)
the vertical fall is independent of the horizontal motion of the ship, why is it carried along by the ship, even in the littlest margins across the sea? If the marble is dropped from the point of a very high mast located at the very end of the ship, from
just inside the point to the ship, so as to land just within the perimeter of the deck, while the ship is in full sail forward motion, it will fall behind and into the waters of the deep blue sea, by at least a little bit.
Test it with priceless diamonds and gold they can have when not falling into the water, and they will want to move the test-point drop further forward,
better to the inside of the deck. Clearly the horizontal and the vertical are not separate at all, since they are within the same 3-D sphere from all points of the graph.
Besides the idea that horizontal and vertical motions are independent, yet equivalent if compounded, Galileo juggled many relative inertial frames of reference with the suggestion of heliocentric invariance,
to justify the undetectable and unaccelerated motion of the Earth. The image of the boat with the smooth ride over open water was the way of leading into the bizarre idea that the motion of the Earth's orbit around the Sun would be admittedly of an astronomical
scale, yet completely undetectable ... because of gravity and inertia.
"Shut yourself up in a ship's cabin below decks with some butterflies and little finches, and some little fish swimming in a bowl, and a bottle dripping water into a pan on the floor, and some golf balls,"
Galileo would say, "and you could not tell from any of them whether the ship was moving or standing still. If the ship is moving at a constant and smooth speed and you cannot see outside a cabin window, you would not notice any difference from when you were in port, as much as if you
were sleeping. If the speed and direction of the ship are unchanging, the motion of the ship has no effect on events inside the cabin on a very calm sea. It is because all objects inside the cabin share in the constant motion of the ship."
"O for joy, the same holds for the Earth itself, and all its passengers, as it flies along in its grand orbit around the Sun. This is the phenomenon of heliocentric invariance that is the undetectable motion of the Earth. So the ship's cabin and the Earth
are similar relative inertial frames."
However, this is not all that true sine
however smooth and subtle a ride in a vehicle may be, its motion cannot take place in an instant. Natural motion is not and cannot be instantaneous. It always goes by two's, duo et duo hae ingressa sunt. Bis per bis it item. Natural motion is a property
of division and can occur only by divisions of time and space. However fine and micro-tuned the divisions may be, to examine natural motion, there must always be at least two separate instants for any mobility to take place.
Every natural motion occurs by transition, and everything passing is gradual. When very sudden surprises or accidents
erupt, they happen because the things that were necessary for them were already in place.
Rest, on the other hand,
is always nearer to instantaneous. There is something about immovability that was always already there. What is still and quiet is closer to an instant of hypostasis, by way of a
previous universal, unius in uno, having an already unitary equipoise per se, whereas motion is not
like that. A stopped clock is right two times a day and always shows only a given instant of time, but no motion of another working clock's hands can take place within that one instant. All progress is at least by two, requiring two separate instants, whereas stopped clocks do not require anything except the space to hang on the wall.
Galileo's foolishness that smooth motion is equivalent to rest was only to justify heliocentrism. Authentic inertia is closer to instantaneous and does not have the divisive property of progress.
Something that is peacefully and authentically at rest is not the same quality as anything that moves, because rest is closest to instantaneous, whereas progress is not. An authentic inertial frame per se is within an instant and of an instant, whereas
a relative one is not, no matter how relatively smooth, subtle, and undetectable it may be.
Because on occasion the authenticity of a quality in a limited
example may not be readily verifiable, by the senses at the time, it does not prove an unequivocal conclusion. With his thought experiment about the ship of constant velocity and direction, Galileo had only put together another equivocation to justify heliocentrism. It is not much of scientific consequence. The experience of unchanging direction and speed in a vehicle that is a relative inertial frame
is not that profound to flip the cosmos out of its center.
Being fooled by things in the margins, and
being able to drink coffee or go to sleep in a train, without disturbance, is not sufficient evidence for the wild conclusions of heliocentrism.
The notion of "compound motion" or "shared motion", in "relative inertial frames", where the Earth would orbit the Sun, undercuts
the doctrine of independence of horizontal and vertical motion from the start. Pierre Gassendi (1592-1655) carried out what were supposedly definitive experiments to test the nature of inertia in 1640, when he had a galley rowed flat out at top speed
in a calm sea, and dropped a series of little cannon balls (not of styrofoam or balsa wood or helium) from the crow's nest to the deck. It is said that every ball fell at the foot of the mast. None were left behind by the forward motion of the
galley. Therefore, Galileo's rules of equivalence must be correct, they concluded, and the Earth must be flying around and around many contradictory speeds at once to orbit the Sun. And no worries, because nobody can notice or feel any adverse effects
from the detectable undetectable unaccelerated astronomical flight, due to the power of relativity in inertial/noninertial frames, et cetera.
By the dog of Egypt,
Gassendi on the galley was only getting lucky in the margins and up the sleeves. In either case, whether the weight appears to fall behind or not, and for how much, the horizontal is not independent of the vertical. Gassendi's test ship itself proves
that the horizontal and the vertical are uniformly interdependent and conjoined along all points. They are not independent as compounded, even if tested in the littlest margins. None of Gassendi's tests could show that the horizontal motion
of the deck was free of the vertical of mast or rudder. None of the galley experiments could show that the Earth is moving either, as much as no scientific experiment whatsoever has ever been able to demonstrate that conclusion.
To support heliocentric and Freemasonic doctrines of inertial relativity, gravity, and Newton's first law, the point would be that loose objects aboard ship are not affected by the ship's motion, as people and loose objects across the Earth are not confused by the
incredibly prodigious spinning flight of the Earth around the Sun. But the simple fact that sea-fastening is such an important
element of shipping is for good reasons, since loose objects in moving vehicles do tend to fall behind, and
come to rest near where they land, or sink to the bottom.
In Gassendi's example, the accidental, coincidental, and equivocal margins of relativity exploited in noninertial
frames should not be the major issue, since the fact remains that things loosed from vehicles in motion separate and tend to come to rest after them, as the Earth is always at rest before them. In other words, drop from higher up and further
back on the boat, like a few times as high and just from within the edge of the stern, by the width of the ball, or the thumb nail of a clown. At some height, if not that, the weights will start falling behind the ship and into the water.
The Sun could not be moving the Earth because of gravity anyway, and the Earth is not moving the Moon because of gravity, because gravity is not a transverse force, and
not any kind of strong force, and not universal or cosmic; and, in fact, it is so weak that it is not really even a force of any active measure in real physics. The tiniest baby birds overpower gravity for worms, and the Sun simply could not be moving
the Earth by such a weak force, and neither could the Earth be moving the Moon by it, or for the wing of a luna moth.
If the question is how people can drink
coffee or eat soup in a car without spilling it, or how someone can read a book on an airplane, obviously it is because nondisruptive motion to a natural degree is possible. Movement does not have to be abrupt, unnatural, disturbing, violent,
or chaotic to occur. With enough ease and free association, some motions may become as gracefully wonderful as a vision, and sometimes also go unnoticed --- but not enough to have the earth or the sun go many different speeds at once.
There may be occasionally a general motion like time itself that is so fluent that is almost beyond notice,
like a grammatical abstraction in words, for example, a genitive of association like "commoda pacis", "the advantages of peace". But the passage of time and motions that are continuous and effortless --- and the advantages of peace and grammar --- are
noticeable. They can be appreciated, and they would only be imperceptible as a manner of speaking, if for the oblivious, yet they are within sight to others. They do become apparent and even motions that are abstract are recognizable, as much as signs and
concepts, as like tends to go to like and increase occurs even in the mind.
Nevertheless, to forefeit the burdens of common sense, Galileo would say that horizontal motion would
run ad infinitum were it not for adverse affects from friction. His system was like a little series of combinations, tricks, and computations in neurolinguistic programming, to help sew things together. After a while, the cosmic ideas being juggled here and
there, between marbles, the Sun, and the Moon, the horizontal and the vertical, and the hypnotic suggestions of infinity in outer space, may exhaust people, as they gaze into the abyss, and they may even succumb to a subtle process of induction, abyssus abyssum
invocat. With the right audience, Galileo could have everybody convinced that the Earth orbited the Sun, and the cow flew over the Moon.
If “almost all people
are hypnotics, the proper authority saw to it that the proper belief should be induced, and the people believed properly."(4)
And Galileo wrote in conclusion, "but if the plane is limited and elevated, then the moving particle, which we imagine to be a heavy one, will on passing over the edge
of the plane acquire, in addition to its previous uniform and perpetual [horizontal] motion, a downward propensity
due to its own weight; so that the resulting motion which I call projection is compounded of one which is uniform and horizontal and of another which is vertical and naturally accelerated."(5)
With a bag of marbles and soaring
Earth, Galileo could start an induction process into the hypnosis of Copernicanism from almost anywhere. By having his students imagine an infinite plane and a ship that would be
sailing in open water, over vast enchantments of the limitless ocean, he could alter perceptions and gain an edge.
A wonderful almost magical body of water surrounds the mind, and there is the polished oak table, with the bag of marbles rolled one after
one into the infinite horizontal plane, where they land and roll and roll on and on into "absolute space". They are all rolling and landing and rolling in equivalent intervals of space and time. One after another, the energy and time are equable and continuous, flowing smoothly into the continuum of quintessence.
Galileo could call a student to the front and whichever one he would
be would be one virtually as all the others, and all the others virtually as him: whom for all and whereat an audience ready for heliocentric mind control and induction.
Reaching into his vest pocket, pulling out an impressive, attractive, and magical silver pocket watch, crafted and hypnotical with mathematical designs and porpoises, Galileo would speak with a rich soothing sound to his voice ... and mysterious
timbre for hypnosis and inductive trance.
He would begin swinging the watch back and forth --- back and forth
smoothly. Speaking, he would say, "the watch is like the subtle pattern of universal gravitation, applying a model wave from side
to side, back and forth, back and forth, by the special unity in waves of the inverse squared, to the farthest regions of space ... round and round like universal gravity, subtending and
subducted, like elastic metallic buckets in silver rain ... of spinning ... spinning water, in ellipses by the inverse
squared. See the subtension of centripetence within it is in forma dormative potency, not bewilderment."
wha', O wha',"
"O wha', O wha',"
a way we have in gravity. Wavy gravy of the inverse squared. Wavy gravy all over and the speed of light squared. Beautiful intentions."
Reaching out to the student with his left hand, still swinging the silver pocket watch
with the right, he would say, "here, hold out the hands, the magnetic hands, lift them level with the shoulders. Even the hands are feeling an equipoise like magnetic plates, facing each other with equanimity in forma, as balanced sensitivity fields. And when I say dragonville and the sky sayeth Mercury,
hear thee well what I say."
"Hear ... watch, ear of silver is like the Moon, and you like the Earth with
associate gravity, associate gravity." Galileo draws the students hands closer together, only a cantaloupe apart, "closer and closer, closer and closer, the hands are coming together closer and closer like gravity, pulling
together to the common center of gravity."
when those hands touch, you shall go deeply into a trance and state of mutual gravitation and sapient rest, but do not go in until gravity comes out, when those hands touch. And when it is night, and it is calm in the trees, and the breeze is like many pooled waters, it all pools like this ... pooling,
and pulling you, and it pulls you, so that ( Galileo claps the student's hands together) ... you sleep! Sleep and
"There stay, and feel the transmission of matter across the universe in waves ... pulling every other. All waves and parts smooth as one. Particles and pines, and soapberry trees of forest mountains pulling rivers and
streams and waters of lakes and oceans. They pull back and forth gently, back and forth, and together by the inverse squared of tranquillities. O munificent and unificent centripetence of the inverse squared. All things stretch together as one --- the many as the one, and the one as the many, as many
as they are, in an instant to the farthest regions of space and time, traveling across millions and millions of miles of absolute and relative dimensions."
"Gravity is the force: the ineffable force transmitted with nothing to name
it, of course. It is No-name other than unificent munificence and gravity. Wavy 'lectro gravy in No-name all over. Even a grain of sand on Earth is magnified, magnified, shazza, shazza, shazza-lune and exercises an attractive force as far away as the Sun, without any medium, name, or means other than No-name,
which is gravity and Newton's esoteric wisdom, teaching solemn G's action-at-a-distance, and greatest division by one.
The student would say, "Oh yes, I see it like open treasure and a charm. Wonderful science and so much
Galileo would say, "sine nomine, see the gravy, feel the gravity, and see the light, wonderfully
connected centripetence, O loverly, O loverly, gravity in abundance. The inverse squared of the ellipse and so much
light, so much light. Feel the warmth, the beneficence."
The student answers, "I'm feeling it, and I see
a shadow of a lady by the pond. It's snowing, and she's blond. I see a light cresting over the woods."
At that point Galileo would say the words, "Dragonville! Mercury! ... and stop", snapping his fingers powerfully to awaken the
student to the universal bewonderment of gravity by the inverse squared.
"O wha, O wha,
O what a way we have in gravity."
Perhaps this is a way that people could be led by wavy gravy to believe that universal gravitation is subtending and subducted all over by the
ellipse of the inverse squared, and that gravity causes the orbits of the Moon and yonder stars, but it is not really a valid scientific method. It could be like Einstein rolling by on a skateboard in nothing more than a fool's dream.
