Mosaic Position of the Solar System in Stellar Space.

After its concentration aggregate matter was caused to revolve about one extreme thereof as an axis (see Review of the Holy Bible, p. 11; Indications of Genesis, pp. 25, 26; Mosaic System and Codex Argenteus, p. 51). Through the method thus adopted as enormous field of space became apportioned wherein the expansion of aggregate matter, as called for by the creative efforts, could fulfill without reaching beyond the ultimate radius set in the great creative plan. From this standpoint the centre of aggregate matter prior to its rotation about one extreme as an axis was midway between the two extremes, but after the institution of rotary motion, and the subsequent occupation of circumferential space through expansion, the centre of aggregate matter coincided with the centre of revolution.

The change thus brought to notice, however, in itself, does not necessarily change the radial distances of the special bodies constituting aggregate matter, but it may and does change their circumferential values. The circumferential value of one special body unduly pressed may lead to its collision with another special body, and, in turn, to a more general collision as in the case of the Galaxy, and the Jupiter Asteroid catastrophes (see The Galaxy Diagram – Planisphere III).

The Diagram thus brought to notice is reproduced from the Mosaic System and Codex Argenteus, published by the present writer (Edward Biddle Latch) in the year 1898. Upon inspection it will be seen that the Solar System is located directly in the center of the Galaxy; and directly in the center of aggregate matter as it existed prior to the revolution thereof about one of its extremes. Consequently, the mean radius of the celestial path of the Solar System, after the establishment of rotation, is governed by the radial distance of the matter that pertained to it prior to rotation.

The eminent astronomer, Alfred Russel Wallace, D.C.L, F.R.S., from his personal researches, places the planet Earth in the centre of the plane of the Galaxy. This apportionment is in harmony with the Mosaic rendition of the Codex Argenteus page. Dr. Wallace, however (see Fortnightly Review, March, 1903), also claims that the planet Earth is the central magnitude of the whole stellar world. From the position thus advanced the Galaxy would be concentric with the great circle of aggregate matter after some method of rotation had been established.

By the Mosaic rendition of the Codex-page the substance of the planet Earth, and, hence, the Solar System, constituted the centre of aggregate matter prior to the establishment of rotation. Wherefore, of the two methods thus brought to notice it would seem that, by the Mosaic rendition, matter with its relationship to special stellar magnitudes expanded circumferentially into space, yet radically to the extent of the Redemptive Fifth, or otherwise, extended the fifth part of the radius; but the mode of rotation; that is, direction of force, is circumferential.

By the Wallace method it would seem that the expansion chiefly is radial, yet accompanied by circumferential occupation. The mode of motion, however; that is, direction of force, would be radial. Thus far certain points of contact between the two systems are obvious; it being the intention of the present writer (EBL) simply to bring these coincidences to notice.

In continuation of the Mosaic position of the Solar System is stellar space it may be well to note that the accompanying Diagram was constructed by scale after the distances of the Solar System, of Orion, of Mazzaroth (Cassiopeia) and of Sirius (Arcturus of Job), from the centre of rotation of aggregate matter (the invisible Pleiad) had been Mosaicially determined. Wherefore, it will be found (see Diagram) that the Solar System is located in the centre of the Galaxy about 50,000,000,000,000 miles from the centre of rotation, and about the same distance from the outer limit of aggregate matter as set by the ultimate radius thereof, viz., the male line of computation.

Mosaically, the Galaxy (see Mos. Sys. And Cod. Arg., pp 50-63) was due to the developments and catastrophes of the fourth creative day. In evidence thereof (see Diagram), the angle subtending the Galaxy measures 47.5 degrees as a memorial of the displacement of aggregate matter on the fourth day, while the angle subtending the orbit of Mazzaroth (Cassiopeia) measures 28 degrees, thereby memorializing the 46 degrees – 18 degrees = 28 degrees, as the angle matter was left displaced of the fourth day from the normal established on the first creative day. Moreover, it has been astronomically determined that the Galaxy is inclined about 62 degrees to the ecliptic, whereby there appears 90 degrees – 62 degrees = 28 degrees, thus further identifying the Galaxy catastrophe with the fourth creative day. Wherefore, because of this disaster the sun of the physical world lost its prestige as a reliable source of light and life to the creature world, and, consequently was superseded by the Son of righteousness. This supersedure, however, does not destroy the mission of the sun as a member of the physical universe, but it implies that, in the due course of events, light and life will be governed by the Word of the One God, who spake, and said, “Let there be light.”

Now in harmony with the foregoing, notwithstanding the disaster, equity demands a full revolution of the Solar System about the axis of aggregate matter that its mission encounter all the vicissitudes which should environ it in its destined path. After this shall have been accomplished then the judgment rendered against it on the fourth creative day can be fulfilled, and the Word of the One God as the Sun of righteousness become the Thenceforth and Forever in the new heaven and the new earth.

Chronologically, as already stated through the Mosaic System, the sun, moon, and stars were established for lights, signs and seasons of the beginning of the fourth creative day. The fourth day began about the year B.C. 33,000,000 (see general chronology of the world, Pyramid Pamphlet, p. 8). The catastrophe which destroyed the prestige of the sun as a reliable source of light occurred in the overlap of the third and fourth creative days; this overlap being about 1,600,000 years. As, therefore, the judgment of the supercession of the sun dates from this catastrophe, so the years occupied by the sun in its revolution about the axis of aggregate matter will be 33,000,000 – 1,600,000 = 31,800,000. Hence, at the end of this period of time the supercession of the sun will have become an accomplished fact, and the new order under Messiah as the Sun of righteousness inaugurated.

In harmony with the above advancements, it is worthy of note that Madler concluded from his researches that the sun, and all the members of the galactic system, revolved about a centre, which he supposed to be Alcoyne – the brightest of the Pleides – and that the sun’s period of revolution was 27 millions of years (see Peabody’s Elements of Astronomy, p. 300).

From the computations thus set forth, although Madler’s estimate differs from the Mosaic by about four million years, it may be a remarkable approximation to the Mosaic value, as indicated above, for the sun’s period of revolution.

But Herschel I, according to Peabody, by carefully comparing and classifying all the proper motions known in his day, was led to infer that the Solar System was moving toward a point in the constellation Hercules at an annual rate of 154 millions of miles. This motion, evidently, is independent of the circumferential motion; and, with great probability, is identified with the Galaxy catastrophe. Mosaically, the diameter of the Galaxy is 69 trillions of miles. Wherefore, should the sun travers to and fro through the Galaxy on this diameter as due to the catastrophe, then it would make 70 oscillations from the time of the catastrophe to the end of the world or, otherwise, during the time occupied by the Solar System in the performance of its single revolution about the axis of aggregate matter. In the esoteric sense, the indication now follows that the time occupied by the 70 oscillations of the Solar System corresponds with the esoteric sense of the 70 years of the desolation of Jerusalem as comprehended by the prophet Daniel (see Dan. ix: 1,2); Jerusalem being symbolic of the whole world (see Indications of Exodus).

From these advancements thus made, the sun’s period corresponds with the time from the establishment of the sun as a light, and a sign, on the fourth creative day, or at least from the catastrophe thereof, until the end of the Pisonic age; that is to say, until the end of the material world as a habitation for Divine Sparks and Essences emanating from the One God. Also, by the historical harmony thus indicated, that the Solar System revolves about an axis altogether without the space it occupies.

It must be kept in view, however, that the souls – form, shape – of all suns, moons and stars, will reappear in the new heaven (see Ps. xxxix: 34-37; cxi: 7,8); and that the work accomplished in and through them by the One God, whether they be shining in splendor, or enshrouded in darkness, will be remembered by the One God, and, hence, reappear in the new world as the themes of the songs of creation, of preservation and of redemption are sung.
