|Have you given up on a geocentric universe?|
No, I've just been sick. I feel better now, but for some reason I'm still a little lazy. Part of the reason I collected the Archy links on Dave's thread was to make things a bit easier when it's time to address that topic, although apparently the debate blew right past it. Oh well, at least people can't accuse me of sand-bagging if I pick it up later.
I know everybody wants me to stay on topic, but I don't want to rush into things without being satisfied, and it's fun to talk about different things. However, I am still glancing at Messiah periodically. Recall that my model follows Brahe's pretty closely, so any criticism of him applies to me. My innovation is not so much in the solar model itself, but the underlying force (information) which indirectly keeps the sphere of fixed stars (see diagram under "Heliocentrism") rotating on its axis and swinging the inner planets along. All the subsidiary orbits also move independently within this framework. That's one reason why I pose the informationally quantum dual to our known universe; the quantum nature of information keeps the orbits somewhat independent of each other.
Dey can't 'andle my riddim.
