Doppler effect on planets.
It means, as Newton said, we got lucky at least nine times. And I say nine times, because there is the slight possibility that a tenth planet, Planet X actually exists on the periphery of our solar system. But the reason why we have to insist, we in our Solar System would have became lucky nine times, is explained by the fact nine known Planets register in our solar system.
And it makes no difference whether these bodies contain life or not. The fact is, if a large body of mass orbits within a solar system, its gravitational influence on the star produces a Doppler signal, which naturally should be detectable to anyone who tries to measure the event with a large radio telescope.
The effect measured is the change if frequency, from a source to an observer, what some term simply: A wobble. You could think of it like a car coming towards you its horn blasting, but as the car approaches, and then passes you by, we hear a distinct difference in the pitch. This is known as a Doppler effect - and it works just as well with light as sound.
Now, as science has scanned the heavens for dozens of years, and found nothing of any real value to show other bodies of mass around other stars, except for a few small signals, about eleven in all, from the millions of stars observed, we must indeed conclude ourselves lucky.
To say we have as many identifiable Planets in our solar system, as the rest of the universe put together, seems strange. Some might even say perverse. Especially when we look at the very short orbits of these other alleged Planets in distant solar systems.
But the anomaly is, some of these so called distant Planets have an orbit of 4 days! I heard one scientist say "It's probably a large gas giant." Well, Jupiter in our Solar System is a large gas giant, and Jupiter's orbit takes a little over 11 years to make a complete cycle of the Sun. Planets do not orbit stars in 4 days, in fact, nothing would be able to orbit a star in four days, not even Flash Gordon's rocket.
For any object in motion, the volume of mass, a body measured by its resistance to acceleration would become so great, on that velocity it would probably collapse back into a star if it even attempted such a speed. So what might that signal be?
The chances are, the star is offering a steady and stable gas release from inside itself.
And if I'm are right about the theory, then those other solar systems currently being monitored at the moment, do not hold the greatest hope of other life, but possibly the worst hope. If we are right about moving light two directions simultaneous, from a centrally, determined point of force, emitting from between both bodies of mass: (stars), then what we should search for is a stable star not that dissimilar from our own, and look to measure the rise and fall of starlight, rather than the prefered, Doppler wobble.
If as we said, stars, like Galaxies all formed from a single universal blueprint, then Planets should have replicated in the same productive fashion. And that means a paradox enters the equation: The paradox being, a mature planet should under this theory be secreted by its own anonymity. It might sound an irony, that the only way we might actually find extraterrestrial life, could be to look for something that is not actually there.
But who knows, maybe that is what George Bernard Shaw actually meant wisdom is all about, the ability to believe without observation, to make a prediction and put it to the test. But to find that out, all we can do is wait for science to discover what mankind was given for nothing, the ability to believe in what he knows, rather than what he sees! In our next chapter, to be published later, we'll discuss our own solar system, its planets, Mercury, Venus, our Earth, Mars, the asteroid belt, Jupiter, Saturn, Neptune, Uranus, and the eratic orbit of Pluto. And of course our very own star, the Sun.
Below is a list of chapters for the Metaphysics Anthology. The book itself is designed as abit of fun! One man thinking out loud. You should not see it as science, merely enjoy the imagination of the human mind in full swing.
