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...
