5 thoughts on “What Causes Precession and Pole Shifts?

  1. I have corrected you before on this: “causing a pole shift when Earth gets close enough to our sun’s companion (Sirius?) to be affected by its magnetic field.”

    You are close to implying this is Cruttenden’s suggestion, when you are the only one suggesting it. I don’t think Cruttenden even uses the term pole shift.

    Sirius doesn’t get closer than around 1,500AU. Depending upon its mass and eccentricity of orbit it’s currently somewhere between 4,000AU and 6,000AU away.

    Any magnetic field of Sirius is thus less than a thousandth the strength of the Sun’s, so can be discounted as having anything to do with a magnetically induced pole shift. All that happens when Sirius is at its closest (1,500AU in 12,000 years time) is that it’s a far brighter star than it is now.

    However, given The Sun moves thousands of AU in the course of its orbit with Sirius, above and below the galactic plane, it is possible that a consequence of this oscillation is that The Sun (and Earth) passes in and out of oppositely polarised parts of a galactic magnetic field. Thus, with an orbital period of 24,000 years, it would encounter a polarity transition twice during that time, i.e. every 12,000 years.

    1. My apologies if I have misunderstood Cruttenden. I agree Sirius would have to be a very different type of star than our sun in order to have a strong enough magnetic field to affect Earth even from 1500AU away. Realistically that idea is unlikely.

      As for the galactic plane: although I think I’ve pointed this out in discussions with you before, our sun’s oscillations above and below the galactic plane take tens of millions of years – 26-35 million depending on the source, but more recent estimates tend towards the high side around 33 million years – and we just passed through three million years ago. Any problems resulting from that (and there do appear to be mass extinctions linked with that cycle as well) have nothing to do with much shorter cycles on the scale of 24,000 years.

      1. At some point you’re going to have to start suspecting the validity of anything that cannot be corroborated, and to a large degree simply discounting it.

        1) If Sirius does not precess, the Sun is in orbit about it.
        1b) Mankind’s culture corroborates Sirius as being special.
        2) If The Sun & Sirius orbit each other, they would do so with a period corresponding to the rate of precession, but allowing for eccentricity could well be significantly less, i.e. 24,000 years rather than 25-26,000.
        2b) The Vesica Piscis corroborates a Sun/Sirius barycentric orbit (and the Zodiac its period).
        3) An orbital period of a great year requires Sirius to be around 2-6,000AU away.
        4) The plane of the Sirius/Sun orbit is around 70° to the galactic plane.
        5) The orbit is likely to be centred on the galactic plane.
        6) The Sun crosses the galactic plane every 12,000 years.

        Alternatively, Sirius is 8.6LY away and we cross the galactic plane every 33 million years (33 being a Masonic indicator), the idea of pole shift is preposterous, glaciations are global, there have been no civilisations prior to 10,000BC, and the Great Pyramid was built 5,000 years ago with bronze chisels. Oh, and we’ve set foot on the Moon, and currently have robots exploring the surface of Mars…

        It’s a simple dichotomy.

  2. As I mentioned before, the fact is, Sirius does not precess, ipso facto it is The Sun’s binary twin (and the cause of precession).

    Given how difficult it would be to measure the precession of Mars using optical telescopes, any paper proposing a 175,000 year period (as opposed to a 24-26,000 year period) should be taken with a pinch of salt – just as any paper pretending to obtain greater accuracy for the distance of Sirius at around 8.6LY.

    Of course, TPTB are going to scatter academic chaff to ensure maximum doubt of anyone gainsaying scientific consensus.

    1. Sirius does precess, just at a slower rate than most stars. The precession rate on Mars was determined after we landed probes there. Venus would probably have a unique precession rate as well but our equipment melts too fast in Venus’ 800 degree heat for such long-term observations.
