Rossa sends the youtube below and I ask one question: “How can they know this? On what is it based?” That doesn’t mean it’s not so and I’m not seeking definitive proof, just an answer to that one question.
Explanatory notes here.
Binary sun on NO.

“True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing.”
So, can we truly know anything?
Or do we really know nothing?
If we do know something, how can we be sure that we aren’t mistaken?
…you know everything James so what’s the problem?
The original work I came across was done by Dr Keshava Bhat (deceased), which is a lot more comprehensive – see link for his CV. The first videos done were rather primitive so the one you’ve posted up is a follow on of Dr Bhat’s work. It is a better illustration of the concept of the planets spiralling around the Sun as they are pulled along behind it as it in turn rotates around the galactic core. Nothing is static in the Universe even if it appears so from Earth.
The first image, above, of a galaxy as a spiral would appear to be replicated right down to the double helix in our DNA and is common formation throughout nature.
JD, Newton said in a letter to Robert Hooke, 1676: “If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.”
You, JD, are one of those giants.
Many thanks Rossa. That was interesting. I too have always held the idea in my head that we ‘spriral’ our way through space. I may have been told that early on in school. I have taken the standard two dimensional model of the solar system as just what it is: a two dimensional model on a piece of paper: a snapshot imagining. But I also ‘see’ in my head the ‘spiraling’ of the planets around a moving Sun.
I am less able to ‘minds-eye conceive of the solar system itself spiraling along with the Galaxy. One one plane, yes, but not on the orthogonal as I have not heard of the galaxy orbiting aother ‘centre’ somewhere.
Maybe I am just a bit thick, or maybe I am just not well up enough on those more arcane ‘angles’ part.
Heck Gal, if you can explain it to me I will be grateful.
I think it is very difficult for the human mind to consider much beyond our solar system Amfortas. For myself, and I’m no scientist, I can go with the idea of galaxies rotating around something whether that is a black hole or something we are as yet unaware of. After all we are in only one galaxy in the universe. I think it is the timescales involved that ‘blows the mind’ as none of us have been in this neighbourhood in our galaxy before.
I can also go with the idea of there being a binary star around which our Sun rotates as it is the most common occurrence in the galaxy. I think it is the usual ‘just because we can’t see it doesn’t mean it isn’t there’. After all it is only relatively recently that we were able to discern other M class planets orbiting other stars.
And even time travel is thought to only be possible if it is in the form of a spiral (like a Slinky) where you can ‘jump’ through time (space time) to get to other parts of time and/or space. A conundrum I find fascinating. All of this probably stems from my interest in Science Fiction/Fantasy. Hey, I have a good imagination
A couple of other things I read last year were 1) the idea of our Sun (star) transitioning from a yellow to a yellow white star and 2) the expanding planet theory. I think we often overlook that stars like our Sun go through their own ‘lifecycle’. That may also explain some of the changes that have been seen throughout our Solar System.
The expanding planet theory suggests that our planet is also ‘growing’ in size and that when dinosaurs were on the Earth the reason why they reached such a size was because the gravity field of a smaller planet was denser and allowed for larger creatures to evolve that could cope with that environment. After all the largest creatures on Earth at the current time are the Elephant on land and the Blue Whale at sea. Seems the bigger the planet ‘grows’ the lighter the creatures that can survive on it. Could be interesting in another million years…..lol
This runs alongside of the idea of our planet ‘breathing’ energy in and out and the core may be plasma rather than molten iron which I think is the most common theory. Goes with the toroidal electro magnetic field that surrounds the planet. Though maybe some other reader knows better.
