Like 3,600 years?  Like the description the Zetas gave me, in 1995, to
me, a woman with a high school degree, who knew zip about astronomy at
the time and in truth knows scarsely more than zip today.

The orbit of the 12th Planet is long and narrow.  ...  The path of the
12th Planet is such that it spends most of its life out in dark space,
slowly moving from one giant tug to another.  As it approaches one of
these giants, your Sun being one, it picks up speed, and reaches a
maximum speed as it passes the attraction.  Having passed, it now has
double the gravitational attraction on one side, and quickly switches
back in the other direction, zooming just as rapidly much along the
path it just took.  Out in space again, caught between the two giants
that dominate its life, it settles down to a sedate few thousand years,
only to zip around the Sun's counterpart in a like manner and head back
toward your Solar System.

And if gravity causes things to go in circles, why does it not so
affect sunlight?  You measure your stars, their distance away,
understanding with great confidence that gravity does NOT cause things
to go in circles!  Please be aware, in this, that we understand the
missing components your formulas do not have.  You are stating, within
this same posting, contradictions, and yet you are unable to deal with
them.  Such is the mental schism that human astro-physics has developed
under, and anyone employed in this contortion must look the other way
or become unemployed!
