1911 Excerpt: ...between the masses. The orbit thus continues to
contract. From December 5 to June 3 the Earth is south of the
equatorial plane. Weakly at first but increasingly the negative
lines of force of the southern field envelop the Earth, neutralize
her positive forces, kinetically act upon her negative forces, and
push her orbit outward. This repulsive force probably reaches its
maximum of intensity at the equinox, but continues with less
intensity until June 3. From December 5 to March. 20 the Earth
presents her south or negative pole to the Sun, thus being
advantageously placed for a repelling force to act upon her. From
March 20 to June 3 the Earth presents her north or positive pole,
but as there is only slight kinetic reaction between positive and
negative forces, the solar negative lines of force sweep over the
Earth, partially neutralize her positive forces and kinetically
repel the planet through a reaction between negatives. Throughout
the whole orbit there is repulsion between electric currents of
opposite direction according to the Ampere law. There is also a
momentum which tends to carry the Earth in a straight line
according to the Newton first law of motion. All of these forces
are lineal, consisting of a push or a pull. The momentum impels the
body in a straight line. The great circulatory force is the
induction whirl of the electric currents of the Sun, and this is
the only simple circulatory force. The induction whirl is cyclic,
in double form, positive and negative, the positive matter seeking
the north while whirling from right to left in the upper semi-cycle
as viewed from the north, and the negative matter seeking the south
while whirling in the opposite direction. From December 5 to
January 4 is a period of thirty days; from June 3 to July 6 i...
