Of Sky Gods and Legends

The author of this video, and the related book, subscribes to a belief that the planets once wandered the sky in a different way. While I can not find a way to “make the physics work out”, we also know that orbits are not stable. The Moon, for example, is slowly leaving the Earth. Might the solar system once have had, say, Mars as a moon of Jupiter or Saturn? Or Venus as such a moon? One that escaped (as they eventually do; and as planets escape suns…) and went rushing past us on the way to the present orbit?

Like I said, I can’t make the physics work. That but could just be my limitation.

There are still some remarkable “connections” between ancient cultures “gods” and symbols cataloged over the length of the video.

They have more videos on their ‘channel’ and I’m going to explore a few to see if they ought to be added here.

    It turns out it is difficult to “make the physics work” in Newtonian celestial dynamics as well. For one, if gravity travels at the speed of light, as required by SR, than the earth only “sees” the sun’s position from 8 minutes ago, and the gas giant planets would only be rotating around the sun’s position from hours ago. Next, “A strict application of Newtonian dynamics would render retro-calculation of planetary histories impossible….orbital dynamicists have long known that Newton’s law of gravity applied to the solar system displays chaos in the short-term—perhaps a few tens of millions of years—not aeons-long clockwork stability.”

    There is however a possible feedback system between the planets which would provide clockwork stability and provide orbital spacing. Electrically Modified Newtonian Dynamics by Wal Thornhill.
