Miles Mathis' Theory: Macrocosm ELLIPTICAL ORBITS © Lloyd http://milesmathis.com/ellip.html (Explaining the Ellipse) [The photonic charge fields from the Sun and planets repel each other, causing orbits and helping prevent collisions.] All experiments and observations have confirmed that Kepler's equations are correct and that the shape of the orbit is indeed an ellipse, as he told us. All orbits, whether elliptical or circular, are assumed by historical and current theory to be composed of only two motions, a centripetal acceleration caused by gravity, and a velocity due to the orbiter's "innate motion." It is still considered to be the velocity that the orbiter carried into the orbit from prior forces or interactions. it cannot be caused by the gravitational field of the current orbit. Why? Because there is no mechanism to impart tangential velocity by a gravitational field. The force field is generated from the center of the field, and there is no possible way to generate a perpendicular force from the center of a spherical or elliptical gravitational field. The ellipse is a symmetrical shape, just like the circle. Using the given motions, the ellipse is impossible to explain. The logical creation of an ellipse requires forces from both foci, but one of our foci is empty. It cannot work with an ellipse and only one focus. In a nutshell, the orbital velocity describes an arc or curved line. It is the vector addition of the tangential velocity and the centripetal acceleration, over the same interval. [C]ontemporary physics [] usually conflates orbital velocity and tangential velocity. But the tangential velocity does not curve. It is a straight-line vector with its tail at the tangent. It does not curve even at the limit. [T]hese elliptical orbits cannot be explained with the theory we currently have. To make the ellipse work, you have to vary not only the orbital velocity, but also the tangential velocity. To get the correct shape and curvature to the orbit, you have to vary the object's innate motion. But the object's innate motion cannot vary. The object is not self-propelled. When the orbiter is nearer the sun, its orbital path must show more curvature. [T]he orbital velocity at perihelion is indeed greater than at aphelion, as shown by the length of that vector. But the tangential or perpendicular velocities at all points on the orbital path must be the same. [T]hese two "ends" of the ellipse cannot be made to meet up. You cannot have greater curvature at perihelion and lesser curvature at aphelion and draw any shape that will meet up. The problem is with the underlying mechanics. Since the shape and the equations are known to be correct from experiment, we must create a unified field that explains them. The solution is that the orbital field is a two-force field. It is not just determined by gravity. [The second force] is a motion due to the combined E/M fields of the orbiter and the object orbited. In this case, the Sun and the Earth. [The E/M field is the photonic charge field.] The force created by the E/M fields is a repulsive force, like that between two protons. In the end, you subtract the E/M acceleration from the acceleration due to gravity. This explains the ellipse because the E/M repulsive force increases as the objects get nearer. As the gravitational acceleration gets bigger, so does the repulsive acceleration due to E/M. We have a balancing of forces. This not only explains the varying shape[s] of [] orbit[s], from circle to ellipse to parabola, it explains the correctability of the orbit. It explains why we don't often find orbiters crashing into primaries. This also explains the cause of the ellipse. It has never been understood why some orbits were elliptical and some were nearly circular. My theory would explain the ellipse in the orbit of captured orbiters by simply showing that the orbiter intersected the field too far from its center. The captured orbiter does not have to intersect the field at just the right distance. It can be captured over a large range of distances, since if it is captured too far away, it will just be thrown into ellipse. Remember that the E/M field drops off faster than the gravity field. Gravity decreases as 1/R^2. E/M decreases as 1/R^4. If you go farther out, gravity overpowers E/M and the orbiter immediately begins to move closer to the Sun.
