The displacement of water gives me an idea back to the ancient texts and Archimedes, and indeed to the values in the Book of Changes. The size of sphere can be measured by volume of displacement of water (the great waters), as in the case of the displacement of the planets, each object by weight causes the field (the surface of the time/space field) to bend so each sits in a pit. The planets therefore hold there position in the pit or hollow caused by the weight of the sun, this gives their rate of spin, all of the factors are interlinked by physics = speed, volume of displacement, all is determined by the structure of each of the spheres. These factors would indeed also determine the axis of each planet as if the axis was not in accord with the orbit determined by the above factors then the movements would not fit the laws of physics. Something therefore happened in the solar system to change the rate of spin or weight of the planets that are bound by the sun's pit of hollow in the field. The experiments with spinning tops would thereby give a clue to how part of this function works, I would, with this in mind see if broadening the investigation to a deeper levels of physics would produce some answers that we all seek.
As we have found a relationship of cubic binaries to natural integers in the movements of the planets and the sun, and these to the Precession cycles. The maths give an octet/octagon that produces a hexagram or a pairing of hexagrams, inside of whose values there is pentagram, we find that all is based on a set geometric shapes whose values give this progression. The relationship of earth/venus/sun gives the measure of a 1.6 relationship or Phi 5/8, the solar system to the heavens is cubic hexagon whose faces and lines give a 6th and 12th division of 360 degrees as = 30 + 60 = 90. All these values are derived from the values of binary triangles that are also doubled or squared. The doubling of the triangles forms a cubic diamond, half light and half dark values, and as you are aware the total of the these values are 12,960 light and 12,960 dark (odd and even) in total.
Thus has to looked at in detail as one ends up with a set of values of rectangles that extent through both 30 and 60 degrees as opposite pairs = 90 degrees, and these are found in rectangles 1.73, or the Measure of the Fish. There is a constant uses of the same values through all the measurements of time/space through which all the other relationships are mathematically formed. The movement's of earth/venus/sun give a 5 pointed division against the Measure of the Fish's 6 or 12 in Precession and the degrees or divisions of the circle or cycles of light and dark periods.
These maths have been confirmed, and the hold-up is to also confirm these maths against the GPs. If you read Ariston's thread on Precession you will get some idea of how close these maths have got, in all other respect they appear to fit. The difference that Ariston is having a problem with in the GPs is - 144 (25,776 against 25,920), and I see you and others have made a contribution to this thread.
144 is a value found in the exact sequences of Precession as 144 x 180 = 25,920 so 25,776 is 179 + 1 extra part. The binary cubes fit the measurement's of GPs, which Don recently checked as correct. The addition of the first part in all the values of 40 light and 40 dark values that got into the squares of Mercury = + 6 that gives a total of 534 + 6 (270 x 2) = 540 = 90. If Ariston can overcome the apparent problem with 144 then we not only relate the Egyptian and all ancient cultural working's of time to the measures given by Don, but we will have found a continuity of these values back to a civilization that was extremely advanced in their knowledge of physics, and whose influence was world-wide. This still does not deter from the fact that all these values are in the Book of Changes whether or not this question is resolved, but of course I would like to find out exactly how all of this fits together if at all.
