In the above thread on the Esclangon-X i said.......
................Courvoisier of course discovered Earth's ground tide,[/b] here i mean the ground tide due to LLC, this is a twice per sidereal day thing, LLC changes the Earth's shape, Earth is flattened square to the aetherwind, the shape doesnt change but what changes is that (because Earth's spin-axis is at 20 deg or even 23 deg to the wind) the theusofa gets closer & later further from the spin-axis during each sidereal day, as theusofa moves throo the LLC's flattening.
The LLC-tide is in addition to the Moon-tide,
the Moon-tide too affects Earth's shape due to centrifugal force etc, & here the tidal flattening is on a different angle to the LLC-flattening & has two lumps whereas the LLC-flattening has no lumps (but theusofa thinks there are two lumps due to Earth's misaligned spin-axis). Courvoisier simply used a very accurate plumbbob line to measure the LLC-tide (& the Moon-tide). A genius. He measured the aetherwind about 8 different ways, ie using different kinds of experiments. I will look for details later.
By the way, the LLC-tide must be a reason for Mercury's 43 arcsec per century advance of perihelion. U heard it hear first. Einstein's GR reason is of course complete krapp. Its the Sun's LLC-tide not Mercury's, Mercury has almost zero spin & thusly almost zero LLC-tide, but the Sun has a whopper.................
I have now calculated that for a south to north aetherwind of 500 kmps
the Sun's radius of 696388 km suffers a Lorentz Length Contraction gamma of 0.999 998 689 in the direction of the wind which contracts that radius by 0.969 km which is 1 in 719003. Thusly the Sun is actually an ellipsoid, & has an LLC-bulge along a pseudo-equator lying in a plane orthogonal to the wind.
The Sun's spin-bulge due to centrifugal forces
is said to be approx 1 in 111111 which is 6.3 km,& this results in a second ellipsoid, ie a spin-bulge in the plane of the Sun's true equator.
I reckon that the 0.969 km LLC-bulge contributes to the advance of Mercury's perihelion.
The 6.3 km spin-bulge has little effect on perihelion because it is almost exactly in the plane of Mercury's orbit. The 1 km LLC-bulge, is in a plane orthogonal to the south to north direction of the 500 kmps aetherwind, & is praps 20 deg off the ecliptic (dunno)(i aint an astronomer)(but we know that it blows about 20 deg off Earth's spin-axis, RA 4:30 hr). Therefore this little LLC-bulge is one long bulge around that psuedo-equator due to the Sun's shape being an ellipsoid due to the LLC due to the aetherwind.
Mercury will have a similar LLC inspired pseudo-equator
at the same planar angle as the Sun's, hencely when Mercury crosses the Sun's pseudo-equator twice per orbit both of these pseudo-equators will share a common plane briefly, which helps the effect that i am looking for.
As i said because the Sun's pseudo-equator is at an angle to Mercury's orbit then Mercury's orbital plane must cross the plane of the Sun's pseudo-equator twice per orbit.
Here Mercury is closest to that LLC-bulge twice per orbit, & the LLC-bulge must exert an additional gravitational pull on approach which accelerates the orbit, but equally that pull must decelerate the orbit during departure, the effects cancelling. But, the perihelion advance is a total of 5600 arcsec per century, so, each time that Mercury departs the LLAC-bulge the pull is stronger than on approach & hencely Mercury's orbital speed must slow & hencely Mercury's orbital period must fast & by my reckoning the perihelion must advance (in effect twice per orbit).
The Sun & Mercury must both also have pairs of tidal-bulges
due to the usual tidal effects (ie due to gravity & centrifugal inertia), this tidal-bulge is a third kind of ellipse (or nearly ellipse). The liquid Sun will of course have a tidal-bulge due to its mini-orbit of the barycenter of the whole solar system. Mercury will have a tidal-bulge of its solid crust. The pairs of tidal-bulges in both cases will i suppose have a max at a praps 90 deg delay to the actual max of the forces producing the tides. I dont know if these tidal-bulges help or hinder the advance of the perihelion, ie in their own right, &/or in conjunction with the effects of the LLC-bulge, &/or in conjunction with the overall creeping 5600 arcsec/century advance.
Anyhow comments welcome. Its a complicated area. I could be wrong re LLC contributing to perihelion advance.
I might have previously mentioned elsewhere that the centrifuging of aether by the spinning Sun might contribute to the perihelion advance of Mercury, in conjunction with the centrifuging of aether due to the orbiting Mercury. Such centrifuging gives a pseudo-gravity (a pseudo-g) near the equator (in the case of the Sun's spin), & a pseudo-g along a line joining the Sun & Mercury (in the case of the orbit), each pseudo-g adding to the standard gravity-g felt at both. The two pseudo-g's are proportional to 1/R whilst the gravity-g's are proportional to 1/RR. The pseudo-g due to Mercury's orbit is strongest when Mercury is closest & orbiting fastest. I think this affects the perihelion (but i havnt thort it throo proper yet). If Mercury's orbit is due to a force varying with 1/R plus a force varying with 1/RR then the orbit cant be an ellipse. This must introduce all kinds of hi-jinx, & i reckon that the perihelion must be affected (in addition to the LLC effect mentioned above).
