Hello it looks, as though, I have discovered the “First Law of Cosmology”.
Quite, astronomy has made big strides lately.
But it is concentrating more on only finding out “What Exists” and “What Happens” in the Universe – giving no particular attention to look into what should be the “Epistemology” of the things being discovered by them. I mean, thereby, the “Reason Aspects”.
For instance, it has discovered that the sun heaves upward above the galactic level and also heaves downward below the galactic level while orbiting around the centre of our galaxy.
But it looks as if it does not concern them to also look into the reason – what makes it heave upward and downward.
It leaves everyone guessing about the reason thereof.
No wonder, just like anyone else, I also have been thinking about the reason behind it.
Have you ever thought why, at all, it should heave upward and downward, just like me?
Though I would not know to what extent I may be right, I don’t mind sharing my mind with all of them who may be curious to know about it.
To know that it up-heaves and down-heaves, what is the amplitude of its wavy path and what is its wavelength, what are the major and minor abscissas of the Sun’s orbit and in how much time it takes one round around the centre of the galaxy, constitutes only “Half- baked knowledge” unless we also know the “Reason Aspects”.
The reason why the Sun oscillates above and below the galactic plane
If you are aware of the fact that earth does not revolve around the Sun, it revolves around the “barycenter of the Sun and the earth”, as has been illustrated in the following diagram.
Of course, no such plank supports the Sun and the earth as is shown in this diagram. This plank has been shown only to match this concept with the concept of this type of levers. The barycenter resembles what is known as “fulcrum”.
The fact is – not just earth since the Sun has as many as nine planets, Sun has nine such barycenters.
While each planet revolves around its barycenter, the Sun revolves around all the barycenters – nine of them which accounts for its topsy-turvy movement.
The same way, now think of the reason why the around which the earth revolves is not the same as its geographic axis?
The reason why the axis around which the earth revolves is not aligned to its geographic axis
Just think what sort of life we would have led if the seasons would not have changed on the earth?
Though we are aware that seasons change on the earth because its geographical axis is tilted to its axis of rotation, but have we ever also thought why its geographical axis is tilted to its axis of rotation?
Do you think – God would have tried to ensure that the axis of the earth got tilted to ensure that we could have had different seasons around the year on the earth or do you think that it had to tilt due the “resultant gravitational force” exerted on the earth by the Sun as well as all other celestial bodies that also revolve around “their barycenters”?
But it is not that the geographic axis of the earth should have got tilted to its axis rotation due to its “gesture of benevolence” just to have ensured that we could enjoy the benefits of having so many different seasons around the year.
Only human beings may have such gestures – not any “nonliving beings”.
We can’t expect the earth to have been so considerate to us as to have tried to let its axis get tilted so that we could have had such a variety of seasons, as we have on our planet.
So, that is what we may call the “Reason Aspects” of the inclination of the axis of rotation of the earth.
Beside it, it draws on us that every celestial object can, itself, acquire a speed of revolution, an inclination of its geographic axis to its axis of rotation and the major and minor abscissas of its orbit that may let it get into a “State of all time equilibrium” in the sky.
