Beyond Heliocentric – Our Solar System as Spiralling Vortex Posted on September 19, 2014 by P. James Clark Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading... Related
The Vortex videos are certainly amazingly beautiful and a reason to rethink our perceptions of the solar system. It is hard to really visualize the complex motions of our universe. Our ability to fathom or portray the inner relationships is certainly limited. These videos help to expand our minds.
Went seaching on the web and found this web site on the vortex videos. Phil Plait, an astronomer, assesses the videos and makes counter points. If only it were possible to see a video more accurately portraying the heliacal relationship and addressing the points Phil Plait makes.
