This research has lead to many interesting discoveries, but none more interesting
or potentially more profitable than a new theory of chaotic behavior in the moon’s
orbit. Before proceeding with the discussion of this discovery, a word about my methodology
is in order.
In my work, which I call Market AstroPhysics, I follow a scientic approach with these steps:
1. Develop a physical theory for a particular cause and effect phenomenon
2. Develop a mathematical model to describe the phenomenon
3. Compute the time series for the model 4. Statistically correlate the time series with
5. If the statistics indicate a correlation that is far better than chance, test the relationship in
real time to see if the predicted market action occurs
6. If realtime and statistical tests justify it, use the predictions as an aid in trading the markets
This approach has enabled me to sort out many new things about cycles and how they
operate. Now let us proceed to look at one such phenomenon.
Basic Physical Mechanisms
Development of a physical theory of cycles begins with an examination of how the solar
system is constructed. It is composed of ten very important chucks of rock orbiting about a ball
of burning gas, our sun. The nine planets and our moon are the big rocks. For eons, these rocks
have proceeded relentlessly on their courses, carefully balancing the forces they exert on each
other and on the sun, and visa versa. To date, there have been two mechanisms proposed
that could explain the effects of this system on earthly events Dr. Theodore Landscheidt
 has presented many correlations between the center of mass of the solar system
and the outburst of solar ares. His theory is that as the planets rotate, they shift the center
of mass of the combined planet/sun system around. At times this center of mass actually
moves outside of the surface of the sun. As it passes the sun’s surface, a chaotic boundary
condition exists, resulting in outbursts of large solar flares. This phenomenon is described
by the equation in Figure A.
This equation computes the point at which the mass of the planets and sun is effectively
concentrated. The outer planets, because of their large distances from the sun, dominate
Jupiter, because of its enormous size, is very influential.
The author has described another mechanism Initially proposed by climate researchers
in the early 1900’s . This mechanism is shown in Figure 1. As the planets orbit the
sun, they exert tidal forces upon the gases of the sun, much as the moon raises tides on
the earth. These forces are described by the equation in Figure B. Numerical solution of
this equation reveals that Jupiter, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, and Saturn are the most
inuential, in that order.
In Figure 1, this tidal effect is shown by planets 1 and 2 rotating a gaseous portion of
the sun’s surface. These gas swirls cause a number of solar effects, including sun spots,
coronal holes, and solar ares. All of these effects combine to vary the amount of radiation
that leaves the sun.
This solar radiation is carried toward the earth in two ways, as direct radiation, such as
sunshine and radio waves, and as particles, carried by what is called the solar wind. This flow
of charged particles forms a torrent of energy which blast spaceship earth, creating a bow wave
and a wake just as a boat going upstream would do. This bow shock wave forms a magneto
pause between the earth and the sun, and interacts with the earth’s magnetic field, both shaping
it and adding energy to it. At the north and south poles, the charged particles follow the magnetic
lines of force, and enter our atmosphere in what is called a Polar Cap Absorbtion Event . This
leads to the auroral oval, producing our Northern and Southern Lights.
The bow wave also creates an envelope about the earth, called the magnetosphere. As
the solar wind flows past the earth, the magnetosphere forms a teardrop shaped envelope
of trapped particles, ending in what is called the magnetotail. It is inside this envelope
that the moon orbits.
