K.C. PAUL - astronomer extraordinaire
It is my privilege to introduce you to a most extraordinary man, Kartik Chandra Paul. For the last 40 years or so, K.C. Paul has valiantly (and singlehandedly) challenged the world's scientific community with his peculiar geocentric model of the Solar System - which I will henceforth refer to as "The PAUL model".
Please set aside a minute to read this fairly balanced article about K.C. Paul's tireless efforts: https://scroll.in/magazine/901353/one-m ... -the-earth
It appears that a full-length feature documentary (titled "The Geocentric Man") about Professor Paul has been thwarted / censored by India's CBFC:
Here's the official trailer (2019) for "The Geocentric Man" documentary : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lAzubmp1s4k"KOLKATA : A documentary about a man who has been plastering Kolkata's walls since the 1970s with his theory that the “Sun revolves around the Earth once in 365 days” has run into an unexpected hurdle. The Central Board of Film Certification (CBFC) has withheld permission for the film’s release, reportedly on the ground that it is “anti-scientific”.

However, a couple of shorter documentaries about K.C. Paul have been made - and I have embedded them below.

The Days and Nights of K.C.Paul
Sadly (as you can see in the above documentaries), K.C. Paul has been subjected to both verbal and physical abuse over the years - which just goes to show how ideas contradicting mainstream beliefs are perceived as some sort of "threat" to many people around the world, especially science professors and students. Shame be upon them. There is certainly no violence involved in K.C. Paul's activities & activism and, what's more, his theories are perfectly viable and eminently scientific.
Of course, as the author of the TYCHOS model, my prime interest in the PAUL model is - naturally - to assess any similarities and parallels between the two models. So let's have a quick look at what I have (so far) been able to gather from the little information that the above articles and documentaries have provided :
The PAUL model propounds that the Sun revolves around Earth in ca. 365 days and that Earth revolves around its axis once a day.
The TYCHOS model propounds that the Sun revolves around Earth in ca. 365 days and that Earth revolves around its axis once a day.
The PAUL model submits that Mercury and Venus are the Sun's satellites (or moons). This explains why only Mercury and Venus have no moons !
The TYCHOS model submits that Mercury and Venus are the Sun's satellites (or moons). This explains why only Mercury and Venus have no moons !
The PAUL model suggests that Earth is an old (extinct) star and that the lava to be found in its core is a tell-tale sign of this being the case.
The TYCHOS model suggests that Earth is an old (extinct) star and that the lava to be found in its core is a tell-tale sign of this being the case.
The PAUL model argues that life is not sustainable on high-speed planets such as Mars and that Earth's immobility is a prerequisite for biological life forms.
The TYCHOS model argues that life is not sustainable on high-speed planets such as Mars and that Earth's (near-) immobility is a prerequisite for biological life forms.
Thus far, it looks like the PAUL model and the TYCHOS model have a lot in common. K.C. Paul also points out that Polaris (our current North star) hardly appears to move at all during the course of one year. As it is though, Polaris does trace a (microscopic) trochoidal loop when observed over a full year: in the TYCHOS, this is explained by the trochoidal path around which any earthly observer is carried annually, as Earth slowly revolves around its PVP orbit (at the speed of about 1.6 km/h). In fact, this slow orbital motion of our Earth (which slowly moves from underneath Polaris, to Vega and back to Polaris in 25344 years) also explains the so-called "precession of the equinoxes". I do not know at this time whether the PAUL model has a theory for this all-important precession of our entire star field ; yet, if it hasn't, the PAUL model is no worse (in this respect) than the Copernican model which, likewise, has no rational explanation for the same!
Another problem which the PAUL model may have is the observed behaviour of Mars. In the TYCHOS model (modelled after Tycho Brahe's and Pathani Samanta's identical solar system configurations), the unequal intervals of Mars's alignment with any given star (707/707/707/707/707/707/707/546 days) are perfectly accounted for. This, because the orbit of Mars (Mars being the Sun's binary companion) intersects the Sun's orbit: the ensuing "spirographic" path of Mars causes the red planet to realign (once every eight revolutions) with a given star in only 546 days (as illustrated here).
In any event, dear readers, I trust that you may imagine how strongly I'd like to fulfill this little dream of mine: to hop on a flight to Kolkata and meet this extraordinary gentleman, K.C. Paul, in person. Then, to somehow organize a little conference with the two of us presenting our "common case", ideally at some sort of academic venue populated with those scholars who have been mocking and demeaning K.C. Paul's work over the years, nay, over the decades.
