# Precession of the equinoxes over the flat Earth.

Finally, you have here the space-time, guys! In this article about precession, you will find the basis of a measurement system describing the whole universe. The number 72 will prove to be the product of phi and the cubit.

The flat Earth model continues to be true even when considering the deepest astronomical topics. I want to talk, today, about the precessions of the equinoxes and their relative nutations. You will be surprised to find out how far the Flat Earth model we have till now set up is working. This will be an excellent starting point for a plane conversation about quite a complex phenomenon. But let’s first discover what modern mainstream science has to say about precession.

## The precession over the globe

Earth’s precession was historically called precession of the equinoxes. This was because the equinoxes moved westward along the ecliptic relative to the fixed stars. They were also moving in the opposite direction to the motion of the sun along the ecliptic. Hipparchus is credited with discovering precession. Astronomical observations attributed to him by Ptolemy date from 147 BC to 127 BC.

Since then, precession is a phenomenon that has been observed and measured many times. It is a gyroscopic movement, i.e., generated by a body rotating around its axis. To explain the dynamics of this motion you could compare the Earth to a spinning top. A spinning top is a free gyroscope with three freedom degrees. Let’s consider a top spinning fast and with uniform speed around its axis t. (See figure below)

At the center of gravity (G in the figure), we apply the weight (P in the figure) of the spinning top. On the foothold (o) we apply two vertical forces p’ and p”, that are equal and opposite as well as parallel to p. Since their resulting force is zero, by adding these two forces we don’t change the balance of the system. The force p” makes a pressure on the foothold. The two forces p and p’ form a torque that tends to tilt the top downward.

The top reacts by moving on a plane normal to the foothold. It describes, around the vertical on the O point, a conical surface. The center of gravity G describes a horizontal circumference having its center at the point V. The axis OV is called precession axis. The point O is the precession pole. A deeper observation also reveals that the point G continuously goes upward or downward. This is a nutation movement. So the fact of the matter is that the point G describes a sinuous line over the precession circumference.

# Philosophers versus Astronomers and the earth as spherical or flat

Now I want to make a few comments on the question. In the above official analysis, the Earth is compared to a spinning top. Any top has to be put in a rotation movement around its axis by someone else from the exterior. How did the rotation of the Earth begin? There are a few theories about this question. However, science cannot explain the reason why the Earth keeps on rotating around its axis. The more established theory about the problem was postulated by Immanuel Kant. He speculated that the condensation of spirals of gases around the sun could have generated the rotating planets…

By the way,  you just need to weigh up around a single but important fact. Why is the rotation of the Earth and of the moon so synchronous that you always see the same face of the moon? Why?  Unsolved riddles like these are the direct consequence to face when philosophers want to invade a domain strictly belonging to the astronomy! Can you recover your schoolboy notions into the history of philosophy? Then you will agree that the whole concept of the spherical Earth comes first from philosophy, and only in a second time was accepted by astronomers.

Wikipedia states:

“The earliest reliably documented mention of the spherical Earth concept dates from around the 6th century BC. It first appeared in ancient Greek philosophy but remained a matter of speculation until the 3rd century BC. Then Hellenistic astronomy established the spherical shape of the Earth as a physical given. The paradigm was gradually adopted throughout the Old World during Late Antiquity and Middle Ages“.

Coming back to the point, during observation a spinning top keeps its position around the precession cone till rotation continues. When the top slows down, it tilts down in a chaotic movement and eventually it completely stops. Considering the Earth, we wonder what kind of energy could be the one able to keep it rotating during the millennia. All meteorites falling down on the Earth should slowly change its rotation speed. But it never happens! The Earth and the Moon keep on rotating with the exact speed that allows them to move synchronously forever.

So, how can you explain the precession on the Flat Earth?

The Earth doesn’t move. It is not a spinning top. The only observable effect you have to explain is a delay of the sun in comparison with the firmament. Let’s introduce this surprising phenomenon.

# The precession over the flat Earth

To tackle the issue, you have first to consider the speed of the sun. This can be described on the basis of the length of the year. It lasts 365,2564 days. The Hebrews and the Babylonians considered the year as being made up of 360 days. There was then a small part of a week left, to cover the remaining days. This is the reason why a circle is considered to be made up of 360°. The time of the year is thus represented as a circle. The precession is a time circle too.

Is the number 365,2564 an exact number? Is the corresponding digit for 365 days 6 hours 9 minutes 10 seconds the complete reckoning for the solar year? Absolutely not. It is exactly like pi and phi that are irrational numbers. They have infinite digits after the point.  This is a common stuff with all what is natural and part of the universe. All these elements can be described by fractals. One big fractal gives the main body, and then we can have fun to discover all the subsequent trifle.

## Fractals and the precession over the flat earth

To conclude, the solar year Y can be expressed by this fractal series:

that can also be expressed this way:

You can deduce, of course, that the number 72  has a strange importance in defining the year duration. I will show later in this article another phenomenon in which the number 72 is implied.

You could also consider one of the most fundamental articles of this blog: Ezekiel’s chariot: a surprising vision of our four earthly ponds”, edited on March 18, 2017.  http://earthmeasured.com/ezekiels-chariot-surprising-vision-four-earthly-pounds/#more-1328

A correspondence is here established between temples and the cosmos. It is an article where you can understand some fundamental. I’ll give just one example. Why the basic measures of the Jewish temple keep returning, as a leitmotiv, in the description of the flat earth? The cubit has been elected throughout this research as the basis of a measurement system which describes the whole universe.

Once I wrote the following: “Taking the measures of the ark as a  starting point, you can succeed in measuring the earth. According to the Scriptures, the ark itself was 2  and a half cubits long, 1 and a half cubits wide, 1 and a half cubits high or 111x  66,6×66,6 centimeters. On this basis, first I’ll calculate the radius of the earth keeping in mind the following: 111 km is the measure given by modern geographers to every degree of latitude”. Now, the unit measurement of the ark is the cubit and the cubit is 44,4cm.

### Number 72 and the flat earth

The number 72, incredibly enough, can be expressed this way:  72=44.4×1.62

Incredibly why? Because 1,62 is a pretty good approximation of 1,618, i.e. Phi or the golden number.  This is the number that has usually been associated with God and His Creation. The approximation is because phi is an irrational too and can’t be expressed more precisely. Phi becomes here a converting constant that allows passing from a number that describes the time to a number that describes the space. We have here the space-time, guys! Phy is the link between the space of temples (the cubit) and the time of the cosmos (the year). Hence we can write

72=cub x ϕ  where cub=44,4

So our Y can be expressed this way:

Now we have the duration of the year, but we shouldn’t miss the duration of the rotating firmament. The difference in the duration of the year and the rotation of the firmament is the precession.

Astronomers say that precession lasts 50”,25 per year, that represents the sun delay in connection with the firmament. This is the precession per one year. If you have to calculate the time that one degree of precession needs to run the exact space, you’ll obtain:

50.25”=0.0139°    1/0.0139=71,6 year.

Once more you have to consider that an irrational number is just described by the main part of the fractal series: we have thus a confirmation that the precession needs 72 years to cover the space of one degree. 72 then, once more.

So, to perform a complete 360°cycle of precession you need  25920 years. This is the whole precession ( the main body excluding smaller fractals).

From this value, you can deduce the speed of the firmament F.

We can write  F= Y- (360/25920)

For today, that’s enough… A sound in my head I can’t describe. Clink, clank, clunk, clatter. Crash, bang, beep, buzz…It’s sort of whack, whir, wheeze, whine… a strange sad affair…Can we still be friends? If so, let’s go deeper across the topic another time. Bye, bye, my reader.
