"A theory is more impressive the greater is the simplicity of its premise..."
Premise: 'Global Warming' is the result of the Earth moving closer to the Sun.More than two-thirds of the world's metropolitan centers are in areas vulnerable to global warming as a result of rising sea levels.
Global warming will continue at an accelerated rate and every coastal region that is presently (2008) at or below 30 feet above sea level is absolutely going to wind up (this century) in a "Venice" situation.
Global warming and the Precession of the Equinox both have a common cause.
The common cause is a natural astronomical cycle called "Orbital Variance ©".
Carbon emissions seriously magnify the issue but are not the primary cause of Global Warming.
Presently, we are at the 'tail end' of the most recent Ice Age and at the almost 'half way' point between the extremes (global tropical conditions / Ice Ages) of the Orbital Variance © cycle.
Summary: The Orbital Variance Theory © lives within the realm of theoretical orbital mechanics.
The Orbital Variance Theory postulates that the Earth's orbit around the Sun gradually and routinely expands and contracts. The time span between the theorized contraction and expansion of the Earth's orbit takes place over eons (Ice Ages to global tropical climates).
Orbital Variance (as described herein) also accounts for (contributes to) the phenomenon known as the Precession of the Equinox and also includes a RE-cession of the Equinox. The orbital variance is measured by 3.14 seconds (of time) daily.
The 3.14 (cumulative) seconds (of time) is the temporal measure of how much closer to the Sun we had moved since the day before (while in a PRE-cessional phase). There is more (below) on this regarding the arithmetic of precession.
According to measurements taken at the Great Pyramid, (and interpreted by myself) the length of a year varies, over eons of time, from:
363.61 days (exactly 363.6102608 days) (when the Earth is the closest to the Sun, i.e. Global Warming) to
366.75 days (exactly 366.7518535 days) (when the Earth is farthest from the Sun, i.e. Ice Ages).
The mean length of a year is NOT 365.2422 days but is 365.18 days (exactly 365.1810572 days).
As the mean length of an 'Orbital Variance' year is 365.18 days, we have NOT, as yet, passed the
'half way mark' as we gradually move towards the Orbital Variance's perihelion (closest to the Sun).
In other words, we are at the tail end of the most recent Ice Age and gradually headed towards relatively 'tropical' global weather.
The Orbital Variance Theory ©, eliminates the present (contrived) "Earth Wobble Theory" as the cause (explanation) of Precession because no "wobble" alone, could have a cumulative/clockwork effect that could produce the phenomenon of equinoctial precession as we experience it (approx. 1 degree every 72 years and used to measure the length of astrological ages).
Additionally, I have searched for the 'Vector Math" (internet, libraries, etc.) that 'proves' or justifies 'wobble' as a primary cause of the Precession of The Equinox, and have found absolutely none, what-so-ever. Anyhow, 'precession' (physics/mechanical) describes (also) a gyroscope with a decaying velocity which, in turn, causes, the polar axes (axis plural) to 'wobble'. There is no indication that the Earth's rotational velocity (daily axis rotation) is problematic. Plus, equinoctial precession is the result of our 'showing up early' (Vernal Equinox) and not 'late' as the 'precession' of physics would dictate.
The Orbital Variance Theory suggests that the actual length of a year varies (over the eons) by as much as 3.14 days (fluctuating 1.57 days on either side of the mean year of 364.84 days) and that the variance is caused by the gradual (and natural) expansion and contraction of the Earth's orbit over millions and millions of years.
The astronomical measurements that we have used to determine the length of a year have been taken within a very small window of about 2000 years. We presume, incorrectly, that our measurements are constants.
The geometry of the Earth's orbit is not constant. Astronomers have defined a mean tropical year as having a length of about 365.24219 (365.2422) days and this number (365.24219) is currently shrinking adding support to The Orbital Variance Theory ©.
The Orbital Variance Theory accounts for the cyclical appearance of Ice Ages, Great Floods, and beyond. The shortest year, according to The Orbital Variance Theory ©, is 363.28 days and the Earth's orbit around the Sun proceeds in a great spiral that increases and decreases over aeons.
The difference between the tropical year (calendar) and the sidereal year (stars) is called "Precession of the Equinoxes".
The "Orbital Variance Theory ©" contributes to the analysis of the phenomenon of precession by adding into the mix a continual and "slight" contraction (and subsequent expansion, eons later) of the earth's orbit over very long periods of time. The theory has its roots in measurements taken at The Great Pyramid.
The tilt of the Earth on her axis accounts for seasonal changes; the expansion and contraction (Orbital Variance Theory ©) of the Earth's orbit accounts for, working in tandem with "Milankovitch Cycles", the extraordinarily "stark" global climate fluctuations.
The global climate fluctuations extend from Ice Ages to Great Floods and Global Tropical Climate. Orbital fluctuations are the real long term cause of our present condition of "global warming".
The Orbital Variance Theory also includes a recession of the equinox which is the bi-polar companion to our present observation of PREcession.
The expanding and contracting of the Earth's orbit takes place over such expansive periods of time that recorded history would make no mention nor observation of recession.
The precessional period occurs during the gradually contracting phase of the Earth's orbit.
The recessional period occurs during the "expanding" phase.
Theoretically there is a mean period where the solar year and sidereal year are identical.
The Mental 'Monkey Bars'
The Great Pyramid is The Rosetta Stone of the Cosmos
I am, somewhat, in very good company in looking to The Great Pyramid for astronomical and calendar related measurements. Sir Isaac Newton attempted to utilize measurements from The Great Pyramid in formulating his theory on gravitation, (He needed to know the exact circumference of the Earth). His initial attempt produced unfavorable results, however, that was because the initial measurements (of the pyramid's base) were not accurate because of debris around the pyramid's base. Newton's second attempt was highly successful.Trying to determine what system of measurement was used in the construction of The Great Pyramid has been perplexing to Egyptologists.
In order to discern the system of measurement used, the exalted and illuminated Sir Issac Newton determined that the architectural arithmetic of the Great Pyramid's base sides should equal (equate to) 365.2422 (present length of tropical year) so he (Newton) created a ratio of 1:1.00106 to make the actual numbers conform because the actual measurements were close but not exact.
The 1.00106 number is now considered to be a 'pyramid inch' and seems to be based upon the British Imperial Inch which is slightly larger than the American inch. (silly stuff...an asortment of inches).
Isaac Newton's 'pyramid inch solution' opened many doors and, as a result of Newton's innovation, many of the pyramid's 'secrets' were gradually brought to light.
My conclusion is that the "Pyramid Inch" is an ingenious contrivance that was introduced to 'skew' measurements taken at The Great Pyramid to conform to our (then) present understanding of the length of a year. Newtons' innovation was, in fact, an expression of his astounding genius and was well received.
Never-the-less, there is much derision, regarding the seeming fictional 'pyramid inch'. Newton correctly reasoned that the use of the 'pyramid inch ratio' made the numbers involved conform to familiar whole numbers (i.e., length of a year in days). The problem with this approach is that the concept of 'pyramid inches' is based upon numbers that we believe are 'constants' but which, in reality, may not be constants.
The 'derision' part is not based upon Newton's 'Pyramid Inch", rather, it is based upon the rejection of the idea that The Great Pyramid could actually contain vast amounts of astronomical data 'embedded' into its architecture. Perhaps the phrase, "Wonder of The World" may be helpful.
Considering that The Great Pyramid is a monument to light (and to the Sun) it is reasonable that some association would exist (architectural) that indicates the length of a year (or distance from...) when the Earth is closest to the sun.
Making a precise determination in this matter has been quite a challange because there is so much spin and confusion regarding precise measurements at The Great Pyramid (Even Isaac Newton had pyramid measurement problems). However, by decoding the symbolism of the pyramid it is quite reasonable to conclude that the actual length of a year varies from eon to eon; I have given my best effort to finding the solution to this matter. see also, Precession Of The Equinox
W. M. Flinders Petrie's classic book, "The Pyramids and Temples of Gizeh" is considered the definitive tome on the measurements and dimensions of the Great Pyramid. His measurements were in 'British Imperial Inches' and, admittedly, there is a bit of confusion about what system of measurement(s) was employed by the pyramid builders, but Pietrie's work has preserved and annotated the pyramid's many dimensions. Nevertheless, the pyramid's pi ratio is not in question because precision is not the issue in this small essay; the essay is designed to convey the mechanics behind the Orbital Variance Theory©.
There have been complicated and perverse (ha ha) Great Pyramid theories that have been formulated using American and British inches and applying them to the pyramid measurements. The problem with these theories is that many of the conclusions are 'forced'' and we wind up with a creature called 'the pyramid inch' (Sir Issac Newton) that attempts top get the pyramid to conform to our system of measures. These various 'inch' theories are interesting and fun but unreliable, i.e "The pyramid's door is 12 inches thick which is a size 11 man's shoe, so God must wear size 11 loafers".
|In the year 1900 the length of a year
was measured at 31,556,926 seconds
long and the length of a year has been gradually ("microscopically")
since, and as a result, the Earth has been warming up as she slowly
us closer to the Sun as her orbit shrinks.
The Orbital Variance Theory theorizes that the shortest length of a year is actually 363.61 days and that the length of a year, as measured presently, (365.2422 days) is only temporarily accurate.
The median length of an 'orbital variance' year is Pi x 10,000,000 seconds (31,415,926.54) or 363.61 days.
The first edition of The Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1771 (Astronomy, page 453) records the length of the solar year as 365.2564 days and the Earth's mean distance from the Sun at 94,725,840 miles. The astronomical measurements from 1771 are greater than our present calculations (365.2422 and 93,000,000+/-) and indicate (presuming accuracy) that our orbit is presently in a contracting phase with global warming as a natural result.
I understand that systems and methods of astronomical measurement have been vastly improved since the late 1700's and that the 1771 measurements may have been inaccurate but there is additional astronomical data supporting the notion that the Earth's orbit is in a contracting phase.
The tropical year, upon which our calendar is based, is the interval between 2 consecutive returns of the Sun to the vernal equinox (1st day of Spring). The tropical year, in 1900, consisted of 365 days, 5 hours, 48 minutes, and 46 seconds. The length of the tropical year has been decreasing (ever so slightly) since (and was decreasing before then but our measurement devices were not sophisticated enough to detect the very slight difference). These measurements, at least, support the theory that the orbit of the Earth is contracting thus making the Earth's journey around the Sun a bit faster. A contracting orbit results in the planet's average mean temperature rising (because we are closer to the Sun and the temperature increase has a cumulative effect) to create the condition of global warming, which is exacerbated by carbon emissions creating a greenhouse effect. We need to take action now to mitigate the future effects of Global Warming. The least that we can do is to start planting a great deal of trees (carbon removing) and get on with the manufacture and promotion of solar powered devices (less CO 2 to reduce the 'Greenhouse Effect'). We are in the 3rd millennium and still discuss 'horsepower'?
