If you’re like most people, you are probably shocked by such a strange and absurd assertion. Gravity is so well an established fact, that no teacher in any classroom worldwide would dare question it. However, when gravity is brought under the light of close scrutiny, its scientific postulation comes up lacking. The name gravity is derived from the Latin word “ gravis,” which means “ heavy,”or “ having weight.” While the Law of Gravitation is defined as: “ That mutual action between masses of matter by virtue of which every such mass tends toward every other, you will find that this is more an assumption than an established fact.
Furthermore, this magnetic-like attraction between massive objects has been found nowhere in the natural world. There is no example in nature of a massive sphere or any other shaped-object which by virtue of its mass alone causes smaller objects to stick to or orbit around it!
There is nothing on Earth massive enough that it can be shown to cause even a dust-bunny to stick to or orbit around it! Try spinning a wet tennis ball or any other spherical object with smaller things placed on its surface and you will find that everything falls or flies off, and nothing sticks to or orbits it.
To claim the existence of a physical “law” without a single practical evidential example is hearsay, not science. ~ Eric Dubay
The following are some theories that have never been proven true
- You came from an explosion in the universe some 10 billion years ago.
- Your body was formed from star dusk.
- You are small and insignificant among billions of stars, planets and species.
- Gravity formed all planets into perfect spheres
- You came out of the ocean as a fish but became a monkey.
Contrary to popular belief, Hermeticism, Neoplatonic mysticism and natural magic had a remarkable influence on the Scientific Revolution, which began in the Renaissance period. The Scientific Revolution embraced empiricism, reason and open inquiry over faith, mysticism, or dogma. Ironically, the Renaissance saw a resurgence of Hermetic ideas, as well as in mythical, metaphorical and magical ways of thinking.
Indeed, the fathers of the modern science and the scientific method were deeply religious and many were alchemists and esotericists, traditions rooted in Hermeticism. Hermetic principles can be seen in the works of luminaries such as Nicolaus Copernicus, Johannes Kepler, Robert Boyle, Isaac Newton and Francis Bacon, as well as medieval philosophers, notably Roger Bacon, but also Islamic philosophers like Al-Kindi and Avicenna.
Copernicus, who presented the first predictive mathematic model for a heliocentric system, describes the sun:
In the middle of all sits the Sun enthroned. In this most beautiful temple could we place this luminary in any better position from which he can illuminate the whole at once? He is rightly called the Lamp, the Mind, the Ruler of the Universe; Hermes Trismegistus names him the Visible God, Sophocles’ Electra calls him the All-seeing. So the Sun sits as upon a royal throne ruling his children the planets which circle around him.
Isaac Newton, the father of modern physics, spent most of his time rediscovering the occult wisdom of the ancients, including the Corpus Hermetical and the Emerald Tablet. He was a devout scholar and practitioner of alchemy, which greatly influenced his scientific work, including the laws of motion, the theory of gravity, his work on optics and the invention of calculus.
Towering thinker Sir Isaac Newton carved a now-barely visible doodle of a windmill into a stone wall in his childhood home, according to a news release from the National Trust.
The drawing was discovered at Woolsthorpe Manor, the Lincolnshire, England,home where Newton was born in 1642, said the National Trust,which protects the house and other heritage sites in the United Kingdom.
