The Solar System’s Underlying Reality

By Ronald G. Messick


The solar system is such a complex puzzle that it takes a specialist in the fields of cosmology, astronomy, and orbital mechanics to assemble its pieces. But a recent discovery has revealed a simpler underlying reality–a scheme so grand that only “Mother Nature” could have conceived it.

Instead of a solar system filled with randomness as one might expect, a truly remarkable relationship was found to exists between the Sun’s photosphere and the orbits of the planet’s. The substance of this breakthrough is straight forward and will only take three paragraphs to describe.

To put things in context, the Sun contains a whopping 99.9% of all the mass in the solar system and its influence is, literally, that of a god. So, in a practical sense, all motion begins with the rotation of the Sun; i.e., (the gear shaft powering the planetary gears).


Astonishingly, all planetary gears rotate at the
uniform rate of 216 revolutions per orbit. 

Here’s how it works; the photospheric circumference is described as 2,714,530.909 imperial miles. And, when that value is multiplied by the planet’s normalized distance from the Sun; i.e., astronomical units (AUs) and then, multiplied again by “216” the calculated result is, invariably, the precise length of the planet’s orbit (expressed in imperial miles).

Check it out…

Solar rotation at the root of planetary orbits

Solar circumference X AU X 216–that’s it–all orbits–no exceptions. 

The bottom line–the photosphere, itself, provides a heliocentric frame of reference. Simply reversing the order of the components (as has been done in the table below) should make that point very clear. Copernicus brought about a revolution in the field of astronomy by describing how the solar system looked from the Sun which is exactly what we are looking at here.

How accurate are these calculations? 


As illustrated above, both time and distance reconcile perfectly with the Gregorian calendar’s scheme of days, hours, minutes and seconds. The miles per second represents the planet’s orbital frequency (or hertz). Here’s an example,

Earth: 18.59267746 X 86,400 X 365 = 586,338,676.38 miles.

What does it mean?

The significance of this discovery has to do with two areas of scientific research;

1. The mechanism that links planetary orbits to the 11-year solar cycle. The majority of scientists work on the principle that the Sun is self-modulating and each solar cycle is a product of a random number generator. However, there are dozens of scientific papers showing correlations between planetary orbits and the 11-year solar cycle. But, because of the extreme distances involved and the fact that gravity declines at the square of the distance, those papers are basically ignored. However, this uniform 216:1 relationship between the photospheric circumference and planetary orbits suggests that something else is at play here.

2. The mechanism that controls planetary spacing; Those involved in planetary science have long known that Newton’s view of the universe was that of isolated “billiard balls” occasionally perturbing each other and causing chaos. Yet, what is observed is clockwork stability. Clockwork stability, however, requires a feedback mechanism to control orbital spacing and, presently, that mechanism does not exist. The 216:1 relationship between the photospheric circumference and planetary orbits may be an important clue.


I’m reminded of a quote by the late Nikola Tesla—the Serbian-American inventor that discovered the alternating electric current that lit up our world:

If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency, and vibration.”

― Nikola Tesla

This uniform 216:1 relationship between the photospheric circumference and planetary orbits is exactly the kind of thing that Tesla is referring to. But, no one is paying any attention. For example, the photospheric circumference of 2,714,530.909 miles divided by the 86,400 seconds in a day is 31.4181818-days (rotation period). Those 31.4181818-day rotations multiplied by 216 is 6,786.327273-days. Why does that matter? Because 6,786.327273 divided by 365 is 18.59267746-years–the exact length of the lunar precession cycle which is well-recognized as the all-important driver of El Nino and La Nina cycles.

Curiously, one of Vedic science’s most sacred numbers is 216 (which is said to reflect the “the distance to the sky”). And, the photospheric circumference (2,714,530.909) divided by 109 is 24,903.95329-miles (Earth’s equatorial circumference). Therefore, the Earth’s equatorial circumference multiplied by 109 is the distance to the Sun and the Sun multiplied by 216 is the distance to the sky. How cool is that?Copyright
