THE 17-YEAR CYCLE OF MARS
It it is with great joy that I now submit to all forum readers what seems to me as a possible, conclusive model of Mars's orbit - as prefigured by Tycho Brahe. In any case - and as always - it is up to you to evaluate its logic / plausibility for yourself.
The other morning, I woke up realizing that I needed a 17-year cycle (rather than only 15) to properly / comprehensively illustrate a full
Mars cycle around the Zodiac. So I started looking around for for some octogonal pattern which would help me construct it graphically. I have to tell you that I almost sprayed my keyboard with a mouthful of caffè latte - as I stumbled into this
http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2013 ... ction.html
That's right, a 'mysterious' crop circle (July 2013) which reportedly recently appeared (July 2013!) in Hackpen Hill, Wiltshire - UK. My first, instinctive reaction was - Ugh NO, dammit !... let me not get into crop circles
, of all things! However, the pattern proved quite handy to help compose what I had in mind, so I happily used it - on a separate Gimp layer - as a geometrical reference template. The result is the below diagram - which illustrates all of Mars's eight oppositions in the course of 17 years.
As you can see, the various figures harmoniously add up to almost exactly 17 years. In this time, Mars performs 8 circles
(maybe perfect / maybe not - yet gradually, helically-precessing circles around the Sun'/Earth 'axis') around both Earth and Sun - with no need for ellipses or accelerating/ decelerating orbit velocities. The only "non-harmonious" thing in this model - if you will - would be that Earth (which only rotates on itself) is placed slightly off-center of the circle making up Mars's 8 oppositions (which is when Mars passes closes to Earth in its 778-day cycle).
Here follows a set of simple calculations I have performed for the time lapses (Earth days) observed/ predicted for the 2003 > 2018
Aug28, 2003 > Nov7, 2005 = 802 days
Nov7, 2005 > Dec24, 2007 = 777 days
Dec24, 2007 > Jan29, 2010 = 767 days
Jan29, 2010 > Mar3, 2012 = 764 days
Mar3, 2012 > Apr8, 2014 = 766 days
Apr8, 2014 > May22, 2016 = 775 days
May22, 2016 > Jul27 2018 = 796 days
Average > 778,1 days
Now, the 'universally accepted' Copernican model has, of course, Mars and Earth revolving around the Sun. Here's the absurd Copernican / Keplerian model 'explanation' for some of the above-listed, slightly variable time periods between each Mars opposition:
To be sure, the slight variations of the Mars 778-day cycle (as seen / timed from EARTH)
cannot possibly account for Earth's apparent, wildly fluctuating displacements around its orbit - from one blue dot
to another! Once again, the Copernican model miserably fails to meet the most elementary standards of geometrical and physical logic. Yet, by twisting, bending, nudging and fudging - Kepler managed to "make it all work" - what with his fancy ellipses and variable orbital speeds...
Here's how my TYCHO/SSSS model can plainly illustrate these slight variations of Mars's 778-day cycle. It is only a question of perspectives, due to Earth being offset from the center of Mars's cyclic opposition points - nothing more complex than that :
This is all for now, folks. More to come!
Anyways, I have a feeling those mysterious crop circle artists know a thing or two about the cosmos - that we're not supposed to know. And no - i don't think they're Martians...
