It would approximately find its former orbit, but because of the increased potential absorbed during its adventure in higher pressure zones, its orbit would be slightly nearer to the sun than before its removal This universe of motion is one of equilibrium from the beginning of motion to maximum motion, during which progression stability exchanges its reality for an illusion of stability.
There is a true position for every potential.
The true position must be found for the exact dimensions of the universal constant of en' ergy which is stored up as mass.
The desire of mass to find the position appropriate to its changing potential is the cause of all motion of mass.
All mass, seeking the true position for its changing potential, displaces other mass which is also seeking the true position for its changing potential.
All mass displaced must be replaced by its exact equal and opposite.
The present theory that the moon would fall to the earth if it were not sustained by its motion is a mistaken one.
The moon is not sustained in its position because of its motion, but because of its potential which demands its own equilibrium pressure.
The earth and the moon push each other away by their preponderance of expansion pressure with greater violence than they pull each other together by their contraction pressure.
The moon is assisting in the replacement of displaced energy and is ever on its way toward inertia, following its spirally curving path through such sons of time that its successive orbits appear exactly equal in dimension.
If the moon were detained in one position for a time, it would race to the place where normally it would have been had it not been detained.
Just so with the planets.
The earth would not fall into the sun if motion ceased, any more than a balloon would drop to the earth, or a cork sink in water. The hydrogen expelled from the sun cannot drop back to the sun. The expansion pressure of the sun's radioactivity will not permit it.
The expulsion of the planets by the sun and the impossibility of their return is based on the same principle. The difference is only one of relative potential.
Mass in motion cannot cease its motion.
Mass is an unstable condition which cannot remain unchanged for one second.
Instability cannot become stabilized.
The motions of the planets and their satellites are not continuations of an original impetus, nor are they continued because of the non-resistance of the ether.
They are revolving in their orbits and rotating upon their axes because they are floating in the flowing streams and whirling vortices of their own particular waves of energy accumulation. They cannot do otherwise than follow the direction of the pressures from behind, and the suction from in front. They are ever seeking a place of rest and never finding it, so long as they are burdened with the form of concept.
Rest from ceaseless motion can only come to them in inertia by total redistribution of their accumulated mass.
Diffusion and disappearance in inertia is the lot of planets as it is of men and of all evolving things.
Slowly changing their dimensions, they are all completing their centrifugal journeys south by way of west to their havens of rest where they await their regeneration.
Slowly expanding, they are drawing away from the sun, assisted by the sun in their recession.
The sun of the system is pushing them all slowly away to cool, and drawing unto itself new light units for its regeneration which will enable it to replace the ejected planets and to continue its own potency.
The planets are the finished product of the sun's fashioning and the regenerative light units
are the raw product from which the planets are fashioned.
As the sun is preponderantly pushing the planets, so are the planets doing likewise with their satellites, the grandchildren of the sun.
When the planets left the equatorial plane of the sun they were even then preponderantly radiative masses of such dimensions that their expulsion was imperative.
As the sun's desire to push them farther and farther away exceeds its desire to attract them, their dimensions gradually adjust themselves to this desire.
The nearer a mass is to its sun, the denser the mass, the higher its freezing point, the higher its equilibrium pressure wall, the smaller its volume, the faster its revolution, the slower its rotation, the more nearly parallel its plane of revolution to the solar ecliptic, the greater the positive charge, the greater the eccentricity and the higher the potential, the greater is the ability of mass to attract the positive charge of other mass and to expel its negative discharge.
The farther a mass is from its sun, the more tenuous the mass, the lower its freezing point, the lower its equilibrium pressure wall, the larger its volume, the slower its revolution, the faster its rotation, the greater the angle of its plane of revolution to the solar ecliptic, the less its eccentricity, the weaker the negative discharge and the lower the potential, the less the ability to attract other mass and to assist its own expulsion from other mass of higher potential.
To expect this planet to fall to the sun if its motion were checked is equivalent to expecting an inflated balloon to drop to earth.
If these statements are demonstrable, then the Newtonian law cannot be true, for every change of dimension whatsoever in any mass alters the ability of that mass to conform to the requirements of that law either by exceeding those requirements or by falling short of them.
Every change of dimension in a mass changes all the dimensions in the mass. n This universe of dimension is divided into pressure compartments of states of motion which vary in orderly ratios. Between the compartments are inertial walls which readjust their positions with every changing dimension of motion in the universe.
A ball falling to the ground simultaneously displaces every atom in the universe and changes its dimensions.
Something must simultaneously rise from this planet toward inertia, to replace the fall' ing ball.
Mass expanded to greater volume must rise to the proper pressure zone for that increased volume.
Low potential must rise to replace high potential which has fallen.
The farthermost star must contract or expand to adjust its density to the changed potential thus caused.
All of the planets and satellites of any systern owe their positions of the moment to their dimensions and respective relations of the moment.
They are all constantly falling toward the violet of disappearance, in positions appropriate to their expanding dimensions of decreasing potentials.
In the same way, all of the generative light units which are regenerating any system are constantly falling toward the yellow of max' imum incandescent appearance, in positions appropriate to their contracting dimensions of increasing potentials.
Dimensions are as relative as the state of motion which they measure.
All dimensions of mass simultaneously contract and expand with its changing potentials.
The inertial planes which lie between any two masses or systems are relatively closer together in dense compact systems than in expanded systems of more widely separated parts.
If opposing dense masses are forced into closer proximity, the four pressure zones which lie between the gravitational centers of the
