The Discarded Image Vindicated Experimentally

Applying Hoyle’s trigonometric handling of stellar parallax(77) for such a Stellatum centered on the Sun, we end up with a modified Tychonian Model (compare figures 6 and 6A)

In this essay I defend a strict geocentricism. I must, however, admit that among those who with me uphold the unique position of our Earth many do not share this “extremist” position. They will accuse me of slavishly clinging to long discarded Aristotelian concepts. Well, that is a matter for argument. French geocentrists, for example, united in the Circle Scientifique et Historique (CESHE), following the views of Fernand Crombette (1880-19790), add, by means of extrapolating Bode’s law a trans-Plutonian “Black Star” to the Solar System. This enables them to postulate the axis of the System to be tangential to the Earth, with the Earth revolving around that axis annually.(78) So to say: for Newtonian reasons they are anti-Tychonian. Maybe – who knows? – they are right, but in case Einstein meets a downfall, the existence of the Stellatum will become a hard to be dismissed datum. Yet, that even then the Tychonian theory with this Stellatum, not centered on the Earth but on the Sun will be unacceptable, I am fully aware.
