We are all gathered here because of one event that happened on Earth before even our forefathers forefathers were born. An event that shaped our solar system into this seemingly majestic pattern peppered with almost chaotic inclinations. An event which has unleashed kinetic and gravitational energy that is still reverberating through the solar system. Eons have passed and the fingerprints of what had transpired is lost to all but a few who has always known that the truth isn’t as simple as most scientists and theologians wish it to be. If our little neighborhood in the cosmos is as elegant as it should be and formed without any outside influence then everything should orbit around the Sun in not just only counterclockwise but also within the same ecliptic plane and without much if any inclinations. That’s not what we see when we look out across the solar system.

The first discrepancy that most of us are made aware of in school is how Pluto orbits the Sun at a 17.15 degree angle that takes it above and below the ecliptic plane during it’s very eccentric orbit. Pluto also switches places with Neptune from time to time but that’s not as mysterious as the inclination of its orbit and its axial tilt of almost 120 degrees. Pluto’s orbit is deemed chaotic compared to the rest of the planets and cannot be computer simulated for over more than 10-20 million years. Pluto was only discovered because astronomers knew something else had to be out there that had tugged or is tugging onto the outer planets. For some reason the search for this elusive planet had been pretty much abandoned in the late 1990’s.

Neptune seems rather normal when compared to Earth for it rotates at a similar angle (28.32 degrees) and is only inclined from the ecliptic by 1.77 degrees. The weird part is that the magnetic field rotates 47 degrees from the axial tilt and is offset from the planet’s center. It’s orbit is almost circular but there is still an eccentricity of 0.011 and luckily never crosses paths with Pluto during the changing of the guards. Unlike Pluto Neptune is supposed to dominate the area gravitationally and is the cause behind the icy objects that leave the Kuiper Belt and enter the solar system’s game of chess.

Uranus is just about as weird as Pluto for it rotates on its side, (97.7 degree axial tilt and 0.77 inclination), and for unknown reasons the planet is hotter at its equator than even the polar region directly facing the Sun. It’s already accepted that there’s a good possibility that the reason for the tilt is because an Earth sized planet had collided with it but I’m curious as to which direction this planet is supposed to have originated to create this feature. Uranus’ low internal heat signature isn’t understood but it’s believed that the impactor was the cause or the planet happens to lack convection. Uranus’ electromagnetic field is even more offset than Neptune's and rotates at 59 degrees from the axial tilt with its north pole pointing towards the Sun’s south pole but other than that their magnetic fields are considered similar even though nobody mentions if Neptune ever had an encounter with another planet.

Once again another planet seems to have a “normal” axial tilt with Saturn and its 26.73 degree tilt and once again the inclination isn’t far off with it only being about 2.48 degrees compared to Earth’s. It’s orbit is fairly circular with its eccentricity measured at 0.056 compared to Uranus’ 0.044. Saturn’s interior is considered hotter than it should be with the best explanation being droplets of helium “raining down” creating additional friction. Saturn’s magnetic field is considerably weak but it is at least mostly perpendicular to its rotation like Jupiter’s and Earth’s.

The massive planet Jupiter orbits the Sun mostly upright with a tilt of only 3.13 degrees and an inclination of 1.31 degrees compared to Earth’s. What’s unique to Jupiter is that its barycenter with the Sun isn’t within the Sun’s volume but that is mostly of no consequence here. What is also unique to Jupiter is that other than the Sun’s sunspots Jupiter generates the greatest magnetic field in the solar system. Jupiter’s moons are all protected from the solar wind thanks to this field that extends nearly all the way out towards Saturn.

Mars is the 2nd smallest planet in the solar system but still follows the same general rule of a “normal” tilt of 25.19 degrees and inclination of 1.85 degrees. Mars actually has a fairly eccentric orbit even it it’s only 0.09 but that’s twice as much as most planets and has steadily increased over time. Much like its tectonic activity its magnetic field is mostly dormant.

Now we come to the yardstick we judge most planets by, Earth, with it’s 23.26 degree axial tilt and has an inclination of 1.57 degrees to the invariable plane. While Jupiter may be massive Earth is the most dense. Earth’s magnetic field is fairly strong. The Moon on the other hand has an inclination of 5.145 degrees and a small axial tilt of 6.687 but is tidally locked to the Earth. This is in stark contrast to most of the other moons in the solar system that orbit their planets over its equator including the sideways Uranus.

Venus is another quite weird oddity in our elegant solar system. It rotates very slowly in the opposite direction as every other planet and is only becoming even slower. It has an axial tilt of 177.36 degrees and an inclination of 3.39 degrees. Venus also doesn’t enjoy the benefits of convection and like Mars it doesn’t have much of a magnetic field. The most unique feature of Venus’ orbit is that it is the least eccentric at 0.01.

The nearly tidally locked planet Mercury is the smallest planet and has only an axial tilt of 1/30 of a degree but its inclination is over 7.005. Mercury has the most eccentric orbit for a planet, (thanks to the demotion of Pluto), of 0.21. It’s magnetic field is a bit stronger than the Earth’s and is more aligned with its poles.

Now with all of the planets, (and one dwarf planet), out of the way it’s time to work our way back out and mention the other oddities of the solar system which are the real reasons why I mention any inclinations to the ecliptic. First up is the entire Asteroid Belt with most asteroids having orbital eccentricities of less than 0.4, and an inclination of less than 30 degrees. The orbital distribution of the asteroids reaches a maximum at an eccentricity of around 0.07 and an inclination below 4 degrees. Thus although a typical asteroid has a relatively circular orbit and lies near the plane of the ecliptic, some asteroid orbits can be highly eccentric or travel well outside the ecliptic plane.
Sometimes, the term main belt is used to refer only to the more compact "core" region where the greatest concentration of bodies is found. This lies between the strong 4:1 and 2:1 Kirkwood gaps at 2.06 and 3.27 AU, and at orbital eccentricities less than roughly 0.33, along with orbital inclinations below about 20 degrees. This "core" region contains approximately 93.4% of all numbered minor planets within the Solar System.

The dwarf planet Ceres has an inclination of 10.593 while the largest asteroids Hygiea, Pallas, and Vesta have inclinations of 3.842, 33.20, and 7.134 respectively. That’s an awfully wide range of inclination and nobody seems to care about its existence or its importance. Beyond Neptune lies the Scattered Disk sparsely populated by small icey minor planets with inclinations up to 40 degrees! The structure of the even further out Kuiper Belt is still largely unclear but it at least extends past 10 degrees from the ecliptic.

Most fans of Zecharia Sitchin’s work should know exactly why I’ve mentioned everything I’ve mentioned so far. Most scientists or astronomers who look at these peculiarities probably don’t care to figure out something they may consider too chaotic. They are only ignorant of a simple scenario of what happened back when the solar system was first taking shape. It’s hard for them to consider any influence from some other outside force because it’s not within the solar system or anywhere they can see it easily.

Mr. Sitchin’s theory consists of only a large planet similar to Earth but with multiple moons while the more modern theory mentioned by Andy Lloyd describes it as a planet just enough more massive than Jupiter to achieve nuclear fusion much like any star or brown dwarf. The latter makes more sense considering the amount of influence it had over the entire solar system. Its inclination is believed to be 30 degrees but I believe it could be even as high, (or rather low in this case), 60 degrees! Size-wise even though its more massive than Jupiter it would actually take up less volume. Possible number of moons, (or planets if the whole thing is considered to be its own little solar system), range from 3 to 7. The composition of any of these planets or moons is unknown but the imagination inspired by creation and destruction myths ought to fuel some speculation.

Trying to create any computer simulation to prove anything will be hard because the hardest part to figure out precisely will be the orbital plane inclination compared to our solar system’s ecliptic and it’s barycenter with the Sun let alone the barycenters or gentle tugs it’ll briefly share with each planet. Perhaps by referencing all of the planet’s inclinations and their most probable place in space during the Celestial Battle mentioned in the Enuma Elish we could have some better understanding of the mechanics behind this mysterious planet. It’s hard to figure out what to call it especially if you consider the IAU definition of a planet and how a planet must clear the neighborhood around its orbit. Technically few planets have cleared their orbits for there are trojan bodies at Lagrene points throughout the solar system.

The physical reach of this little celestial system is unknown for it’s possible even though the main body may travel directly through the asteroid belt its companions may have orbits that had taken them into direct paths with perhaps any planet of our solar system. It could be more highly likely that the magnetic field of this celestial body is strong enough to affect the magnetic fields of certain planets like Neptune and Uranus and the axial tilt of just about every planet. The most obvious effect it had was enhancing Jupiter’s effect on the Asteroid Belt and not allowing it to try to recoalesce into another planet but what’s not obvious what the Asteroid Belt had to do with Earth.

What’s probably even harder for mainstream scientists or astronomers to accept is that Earth had most likely been a part of the Asteroid Belt before it was cleaved from a planet at least twice the size of the current Earth. A side effect of the collision caused the Earth to take its largest companion to the orbit it now occupies. Whether that was the invading planet or its moon doesn’t matter for eventually intelligent life had evolved in that celestial system and they made expeditions to Earth and perhaps most of the other planets. Somehow life on Earth is compatible with life on Nibiru either because of the collision or because life seems to permeate the cosmos in some form or another. Based on our best calculations there have been at least over a million orbits of Nibiru since the Beginning and things have mostly settled but that doesn’t mean its passages aren’t always clear of catastrophes of some sort on any planet.

Thanks to the recent Russian meteor the biggest threat on people’s minds is the possibility of an asteroid or comet striking Earth. That appears to be a common companion accompanied with Nibiru or at least comets that come pretty close and are the reasons why humans have always considered comets to be ominous. A flood is still even a possibility as long as there are still massive ice sheets over the arctic and antarctic that can slide into the ocean thanks to the gentle tug of Nibiru. Regardless of the dark ages that persisted between Nibiru’s most recent orbits since before 3760 BC humanity had it rough if it had to deal with asteroid and comet impacts during any of the visits.

The hope is that perhaps we learned a thing or two this time around and within enough time to prevent a global or highly regional celestial impact from decimating our civilization. The idea of mining asteroids for minerals personally fascinates me for several reasons but most especially because it would help us learn how to destroy them or just help them move along without crossing Earth’s orbit. If we can create outposts on other planets or moons even under artificial living conditions that would at least help ensure the possibility of humanity surviving in the long run. Considering how widespread humanity is on Earth I’m pretty sure it’ll be hard to wipe out a similar proportion as last time especially if we at least have some sort of warning.

The state of the solar system should make anyone wonder: What happened here, why, what and when. Just hope to be around when Nibiru is visible in the skies, both for the confirmation, but also I would very much like to se the reaction in the human population. Then our ego and ignorance is terminated. When humanity has first hand proof of why the solar system is in the current condition. When we see the heavenly kingdom then we would be humble.

Btw Areles thank you for this Great and true insight on the solar system. Many need to be educated in this matter.

You're very welcome, Sonenki! At first I was just thinking about the US Prez' State of the Union address when I got the idea to write something like this. Other than Mr. Sitchin pointing out just a few of those eccentricities on the long scale I don't think anybody ever tried to give the whole picture before on today's present state. Of course most science teachers or astronomers would try to say that what we see is normal for most star systems even though we haven't had anything to compare it to until recently and so far nothing matches close to what we have seen here.

Scientists now say the Solar System has at least two more planets waiting to be discovered beyond the orbit of Pluto.
