##### Three Body Problem
« on: March 23, 2012, 10:15:47 PM »
I was browsing your wiki to understand your theory on how stars exist, and I found this quote: "Think of a binary (two) star system which moves around an invisible common barycenter. Now add a third body which shares that common center of attraction. Now a fourth. When we add enough bodies the system looks like a swirling multiple system."

In my understanding of RET, this invisible common barycenter is an insignificant point that they happen to revolve around as a result of the mathematical equations provided by the laws of gravity. In RET, it is very very very difficult to predict how 3 bodies  will revolve around each other, and they certainly do not or would not all revolve one central point. From what I understnad you say that all of the stars in the sky revolve around one central point as a result of no explainable force. Please explain to me how this would be possible in FET. And please clearly state all of the evidence you have (not pictures, diagrams are okay) in as few posts as possible instead of bit by bit in replies to others.

How does the failing of some astronomers to describe something reflect on other astronomers, or on ours?

Your question is answered in the very same wiki page you're referencing. David S. Evan's Hierarchical Systems describes the formation and behavior of multiple systems.

http://theflatearthsociety.org/wiki/index.php?title=Stars

Quote from: Flat Earth Wiki
Instability can be avoided if the system is what astronomer David S. Evans has called "hierarchical." In a hierarchical system, the stars in the system can be divided into two smaller groups, each of which traverses a larger orbit around the system's center of mass. Each of these smaller groups must also be hierarchical, which means that they must be divided into smaller subgroups which themselves are hierarchical, and so on. In this case, the stars' motion will continue to approximate stable non-elliptical Keplerian orbits around the system's center of mass.

Here is a scientific paper which describes the movements and behavior of Multiple Systems: http://adsabs.harvard.edu/abs/1968QJRAS...9..388E (external link)

The link provided is from NASA, you know this right?

It also specifically says that the most complex system which could continue to exist would be an octuple, with a hierarchy of 3 (so, 8 total stars arranged in 3 seperate groups with various speeds).  Also, as each hierarchy would be moving at different speeds, the proximity of stars to eachother, as well as constellations would be constantly changing under that model.

Why is this paper, the link for which is the NASA Astrophysics Data System, acceptable to you?  Is it not odd that your model in your Wiki uses the model from a NASA scientist to explain the star movement?

Also, this model/theory envolves stars gravitationally orbiting each other.  How would this model apply to the stars orbiting a yet unexplained force in the center of our sky?  Or do you have an explanation for what that force is (which actually may be closer to what the original question was)?

Yes Mr T is right, Tom. The rotating wheels of stars (on a flat earth) are obviously not "hierarchical".  Even your Wiki link says they are rotating around a "common barycenter".  Please remove this outlandishly tenuous explanation from the Wiki.

unfortunately it is near impossible to remove soothing from the FAQ.
Apparently it is like a "bible" for the faqqers, and doing so would tear down the whole fiber of the universe.
Just look at the whole "spotlight sun" theory. 99% of disc earth theorists and faqqers agree it is not a spotlight,
but to remove it would be like removing a chapter of the Bible, its not going to happen.

The reason that the FAQ is rarely updated is because many of the topics in it are hot and disputed issues. Not because it's like a bible to us.

This still doesn't answer my question. How can you have the billions of stars in the universe ratating around one point? Mind you, the point itself holds no actual significance in RET, as a barycenter beteen two stars is merely their common center of gravity. You can't just say that there is a mystical force holding them together, it HAS to be gravity.

And let's just assume that you use the old, 'Well, stars and planets and the moon and the antimoon(still don't get this) aren't the earth, so they don't have to follow the same laws of physics' argument that I have seen a couple times. This would imply that the matter on Earth that makes up dirt and trees and people and everything is not the same matter that makes up the sun, moon, and planets.

So what's it gonna be:
A. Gravity does not exist at all and a 'magical' force holds stars and planets together
B. Gravity only exists not on Earth and matter on Earth is somehow 'magically' different from matter on planets and stars.
C. Please, <i>please</i> try not to use another argument, it makes these threads derail so easily. If you have to, please be as thorough as possible in your reply. I would really appreciate it.

I believe their explanation is UA, or universal acceleration.I may be wrong, though.
It is the idea that the entire universe is falling down up.

That explanation only accounts for how gravity would work on earth, not on heavenly bodies, as UA alone would cause them to come crashing downwards.

Nobody here can answer your concern, because all they have at their disposal is the main faq, which does not address many other important issues.

To start with, the three body problem cannot be explained using the conventional approach: attractive gravity. That is, a system consisting of a star (Sun), a planet (Earth), and a satellite of the planet (Moon) cannot be described mathematically; this fact was discovered long ago by Henri Poincare, and was hidden from public view:

http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30499.msg987360#msg987360

(KAM theory, homoclinic orbits, Smale horseshoes)

An attractive gravity field, made up of gravitons, cannot explain at all the three body problem, here is another demonstration:

http://theflatearthsociety.net/talk/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1183&start=15#p35542

It is very important to understand the existence of two types of gravitational energies: terrestrial gravity and planetary/stellar gravity.

Here is I. Newton describing these facts:

Here is a letter from Newton to Halley, describing how he had independently arrived at the inverse square law using his aether hypothesis, to which he refers as the 'descending spirit':

....Now if this spirit descends from above with uniform velocity, its density and consequently its force will be reciprocally proportional to the square of its distance from the centre. But if it descended with accelerated motion, its density will everywhere diminish as much as the velocity increases, and so its force (according to the hypothesis) will be the same as before, that is still reciprocally as the square of its distance from the centre'

And now, Newton's explanation for the cause of the orbits of the planets/stars:

Isaac Newton speculated that gravity was caused by a flow of ether, or space, into celestial bodies. He discussed this theory in letters to Oldenburg, Halley, and Boyle.

Newton still thought that the planets and Sun were kept apart by 'some secret principle of unsociableness in the ethers of their vortices,' and that gravity was due to a circulating ether.

Pressure Gravity = Terrestrial Gravity

Rotational/Circulating Gravity = Planetary Gravity

Therefore, between these two types of gravitational energies (aether = medium in which ether flows; ether = telluric currents; density of aether varies greatly) there must exist a barrier which separates them, the terrestrial gravity from the rotational gravity. We can call this barrier the Schumann cavity; this is the very reason that no Nasa mission could go beyond this energy field.

The experiment performed by G.B. Airy in 1871 confirmed these hypotheses; convince yourself that this is indeed the case:

http://www.theflatearthsociety.org/forum/index.php?topic=30499.msg1231580#msg1231580

The aether moves the planets/stars; the ether provides the pressure type of terrestrial gravity.

The true shape of the planetary orbit: THE EPICYCLE

http://wwwdata.unibg.it/dati/bacheca/63/21692.pdf

And there are further similarities between the flight mechanism of an UFO and the movement of both planets and stars...a subject we cannot go into here.

The three body problem is a problem for RET, not FET:

Trying to calculate the interactions of two extended objects in GR is exceptionally hard and virtually impossible to do exactly - it can only be done by brute force computation.  Extend this to another extended body (say, the oceans or something) and the problem becomes unsolvable.  This is an inherent problem with GR and always has been - all the fancy astrophysical calculations that are used as 'proof' of GR only get away with it since the measurements have relatively large error bars.  Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful theory that is a massive improvement over those that went before it, but when it can't handle something as familiar as the Earth-Moon system (and that's assuming they're both rigid bodies) without resorting to huge supercomputers... well, let's say general relativists worship it a bit too much in my opinion.

I'm sorry, but any theory where you have to pretend that the Earth and Moon are one body in order to get accurate predictions has some serious flaws. Go outside and look at the sky tonight, and tell me if the Moon appears to be part of the Earth.

The only times that the earth and moon would be considered a single body are when it doesn't matter to the results if the earth and moon are a single body or not.  For example, when considering the earth's orbit around the sun, why would the moon's orbit around the earth be significant?
