Part of Chapters 4 & 8


This material presents an overview of the ASTRO-METRIC concept of solar system formation. It indicates that the seeds of the planets and their satellites were formed at the atomic level. This is why the solar system appears to be just one large "atom" in the cosmos. The theosophical side of this concept is contained in Appendix A, and many may find it quite mathematical. That appendix shows how theosophical considerations lead to the ASTRO-METRIC concept. As scientists may be prejudiced against such concepts, only the physical results are presented here.

ASTRO-METRICS proposes that formation of multiple star systems and their associated planets is the result of tidal interaction between primordial black holes (PBHs) formed during the Big Bang. Two principal PBHs attracted one another based on gravitational/electrostatic forces and quantum spin states, then co-orbited. Gravitational resonance, together with this co-orbital rotation, ejected smaller PBHs from these primary PBHs. The exact process is derived from a relativistic quantum mechanical theory beyond the scope of this web site. The ejected PBHs became seeds for the planets or satellites of our solar system. Growth to their current size occurred later in a two step process.

This theory proposes that the orbital radius of the ejected PBHs (formed on the atomic scale) expanded to macroscopic size as the universe rapidly expanded in its first few minutes. The periodic generation of the small planetary PBHs, formed by the co-orbiting stellar PBHs, is the basis of the Titus-Bode law. The heavy element core of the planets and the heavy element contribution to the stars pre-date the galaxies.

The application of this simplistic model to our solar system is shown in Figure 4-1. Here, the two principal Primordial Black Holes (PBHs), the Sun's PBH (or SPBH) and Vulcan's PBH (or BCPBH), co-orbit during the early phases of the formation of the universe. Both these stellar PBHs are somewhat disc shaped because they are envisioned to possess substantial angular momentum. As Vulcan's smaller PBH begins to orbit the Sun's PBH, it passes close to an angle aligned with the edge of the Sun's PBH disc and shakes it much like a housewife shakes a rug. The passage of Vulcan's PBH produces a standing wave in the Sun's PBH disc which terminates in the ejection of a planetary PBH (or PPBH). However, only a quantized potential energy is permitted when defining the orbits about these atomic size nuclei. Specific energy levels, defined by quantum mechanical laws, restrict the possible orbits into which the planetary PBHs can be cast. See Figure 4-2.

These tidal forces (caused by Vulcan's orbiting PBH) resonate with the Sun's PBH disc when Vulcan's PBH is passing within a few degrees of the Sun's PBH spin plane. The first PBH becomes the seed for the outer most and the last, the seed for the inner most, solar planet.

As Vulcan's PBH completes a half orbit of the Sun's PBH, another planet's PBH is shaken off. No matter escapes the Primordial Black Holes. The black holes are simply sub- divided and their matter remains incarcerated.

Enormous amounts of orbital angular momentum transfer from Vulcan's PBH is required to cast the planets' PBHs from the Sun's PBH. Note, even quantum mechanics cannot violate the law of conservation of angular momentum. This momentum is recovered by the planets' PBH, and eventually the planets themselves. In other words, the planets capture angular momentum from the co-orbit rotation of the Sun's and Vulcan's PBHs. This is why the planets, not the Sun, possess the bulk of the angular momentum in the solar system. The spin angular momentum associated with the individual Sun's or Vulcan's PBH has little to do with the planets' PBH's orbital angular momentum. Normally, the greatest transfer of angular momentum would be to the outermost planet's PBH since it was first formed. But the transition of the laws of physics from quantum to classical mechanics alters this process.

With each orbital pass by Vulcan's PBH, both the PBH solar system and the universe are growing larger. The orbital separation between Vulcan's, the Sun's and the planets' PBH increases. The geometric progression found in the Titus-Bode law reflects the slowing down of the expansion of the universe, with each planet's PBH closer to the next one until the last one is dislodged. The gravitational tidal effects eventually lessen until no more PBHs are shaken off. The last PBH ejected is the seed for the innermost planet and has the smallest terrestrial core (least casting energy). This entire process occurs quickly and at near atomic dimensions. It is governed first, by quantum mechanical, then classical mechanical, laws as the universe expands.

Most of the later cast planets' PBHs will remain in the Sun's PBH's spin plane (which has become known as the ecliptic). However, some of the initial planets' PBHs can be influenced by the presence of Vulcan's PBH and it may cause a significant perturbation of their orbit. If the inclination of the orbit plane of Vulcan's PBH is at significant angle to the ecliptic (the Sun's PBH spin plane), quantum forces, may or may not, drag the initial planets' PBHs into an orbit likewise inclined. But the effect on the actual orbital structure is unknown. The later formed planets PBH's will be less effected by Vulcan's PBH because the expanding universe carries them farther and farther away.

Similarly, the Sun's PBH may shake planetary PBHs off Vulcan's PBH since its spin also makes it disc shaped. These may remain in orbit about Vulcan's PBH, or be captured by the Sun's PBH. If Vulcan's PBH orbit is severely inclined to the Sun's PBH spin plane, the PPBHs ejected from Vulcan's PBH will be found at a substantial angle to the ecliptic plane. The spin angular momentum of the planet's PBHs formed from Vulcan's PBH is small, because only a small planet PBH can be dislodged from Vulcan's "more spherical" PBH.

It is unreasonable to assume that ours and all other PBH "solar systems" drift through the universe at their expanded dimensions until they acquire mass from some nebula of gas and dust. Separation of the planets' PBHs orbiting the Sun's PBH would be truly astronomical, about 1034 light years, which is larger than the known universe. See ASTROMETRICS; pg. 23.

It is more reasonable to postulate that the primordial black hole solar system gains mass (especially the heavy elements) as the universe just begins its expansion. First, the PBHs would form, then heavy elements and finally the lighter elements, especially hydrogen. It is hard to see how the PBHs could acquire matter just after forming. However, there will be a point during the expansion of the universe when the PBH solar system is floating in a sea of condensing matter. If the PBHs acquired mantels of heavier elements just after the beginning of the universe, prototype solar systems would form with planets much the size observed today. Suns, made of heavy elements, would radiate by gravitational contraction for millions of years. Then they would cool, forming large astronomical bodies of dark matter, not observable by the astronomer's telescope. While the heavy elements form first, both they and the clouds of hydrogen and helium gas form at approximately the same time. But the heavy element solar systems aand the clouds of hydrogen and helium gas may not get together until much later.

Prototype solar systems can add significantly to the estimated mass of the universe. These prototype solar systems can drift through the universe for billions of years before being attracted to the gravitational potential of a huge cloud of hydrogen. Then, the dark stars begin to acquire substantial hydrogen mass. The cloud need not have specific angular momentum or be disc shaped, but may appear like most of the gaseous nebula usually observed (e.g. the Orion nebula).

Multiple prototype solar systems made of dark matter are attracted to these nebula, and their presence stabilizes the galactic disc. Some of these bodies gain hydrogen mass, but not in direct proportion to their heavy element mass, as they finally pass into the gaseous nebula. The heavy element core of the stars compared to that of the tiny planets would gain the most as they are the larger bodies. Their hydrogen finally ignites, forming a real star. The hydrogen from the nebulae also adds to the outer mantel of the prototype planets' surface, forming atmospheres and seas.

The proposed model for formation of the heavy elements does not require a supernova. Heavy element poor stars are really only hydrogen rich ones (not old ones, as commonly thought), and these are ones whose prototype solar systems have drifted into the denser regions of a hydrogen nebulae.

The planets in the prototype solar system acquire matter from the gaseous nebula in a manner proportional to their mass. Effectively, they concentrate material from the gaseous nebula into the ecliptic plane. Then, the surface of prototype planets hydrogenate and their atmospheres begin to resemble those of Uranus or Neptune. As our dark Sun gained mass, the orbital radii of the planets within the prototype solar system shrink until they exhibited the currently observed Titus-Bode law's geometric progression. The Sun's mass alone determined the planets orbital radii as the mass of the planet is insignificant.

Gas is gathered from the nebula into the ecliptic plane by the Sun and inner planets. But when the Sun ignites, it is blown outward into the ecliptic plane by the solar wind. This, and other inter-planetary matter, is mostly scattered with only a small amount captured by the Jovian planets.

All nucleation need not occur via these heavy Primordial Black Holes. Some bodies can also form through gravitational processes, but they would have no significant heat engine and little cohesiveness. Examples include comets (which appear to be formed of material of low melting point) and small planetary satellites. Some objects (especially the very small satellites) are likely residues from the prototype solar system. Detonation of small PPBH (which had formed planetesimals) supplied primordial matter to the Oort cloud. Similarly, detonation of PSPBHs that had originally formed small satellites became rings (along with the rings' shepherding satellites) orbiting their parent planet.

Distant planets, seeded by PBHs ejected from Vulcan's PBH, may have experienced detonations of these tiny PBHs because they were so very small. These detonations may have produced many fragments of primordial heavy element matter which became hydrogenated as the Sun grew to its present size. These primordial fragments are the likely source of cometary bodies found in both the inner and outer Oort cloud. Thus, cometary material constitute the remains of the crust or mantels of these primordial planets. Such material may often show evidence of prior melting such as that found in the Murchison meteorite Therefore, comets are representative of the early universe, especially as far as the originally formed prototype solar system is concerned. This concept is consistent with many of the current theories concerning comets, which describes their genesis as primordial.

Those planetary PBHs ejected from Vulcan's PBH would soon be captured by the Sun's PBH in an orbit substantially inclined to the solar ecliptic plane. Remember, to form planetary PBHs, Vulcan's PBH must be in an orbit plane significantly tilted to the Sun's PBH spin plane (which is now known as the solar ecliptic plane), or planetary PBHs could not be cast. Consequently, the shattered remains of these primordial planets (now comets) will seldom be found in the solar ecliptic plane. Instead, they are found to have highly inclined and eccentric orbits as would be expected. Some of these tiny bodies have also been captured by solar planets, becoming their satellites.


Figure 8-1 illustrates how the orbits of the planet's PBHs would have appeared shortly after the Big Bang. Then, quantum mechanical laws governed the planetary PBH orbital separation. These orbits were likely constrained to the solar ecliptic plane when cast by quantum mechanical forces.

Both Vulcan's and the Sun's planets were formed in the same way. When the co-orbiting Sun's PBH crossed the spin plane of Vulcan's PBH (the BCPBH), planetary PBHs were also cast from it. Eventually, the more massive Sun's PBH captured Vulcan's planetary seeds. Most of Vulcan's tiny inner planets' PBHs have already detonated. Debris from their shattered crust is found in the outer solar system. This debris either adds to or forms the Oort cloud.

Pluto's small size, orbital eccentricity and inclination are out of step with the rest of the Jovian planets. Thus, it is likely that Pluto was seeded by one of Vulcan's planetary PBHs. Since both the Sun's and Vulcan's planetary PBHs were formed at about the same time, the relative positions, predicted by the Titus-Bode law, applies for both systems.

Table 8-1 summarizes the resulting orbits of Vulcan's and the Sun's PBHs when they were first cast. Vulcan's PBHs were transferred into orbits about the Sun's PBH, and these orbits are estimated later (in ASTRO-METRICS, they are not included on this web site). The following equation is a variation of the Titus-Bode law predicting the relative orbits of both the Sun's and Vulcan's planetary PBHs assuming they are determined by the geometric expansion of space:

R = 0.3 X 2(10 - u/12:00) = 0.3 X 2exp.(10 - u/12:00)

Here, u is the net angular rotation (hr.:min.) from the first cast to the newly cast planet's PBH. Table 8-2 illustrates the application of this equation to generate the separation, in relative AU (rAU), for the planetary PBHs. For the Sun's planets, u/12:00 = 0 to 10 and for Vulcan's planets, u/12:00 + 0.1764 = ranges from 0.1764 to 10.1764 unless double planet formation is involved. The Sun's PPBHs remained in their initial casting orbits and assumed the familiar planetary orbits (AU or rAU) as the universe grew to its current size.

* Vulcan crosses the ecliptic at 182 and 285 AU and has a Perigee/Apogee of 134/454 AU respectively. Thus it occupies these orbital position. Likewise, Pluto occupies two orbital positions because its orbit now varies from about 30 AU to 50 AU

** occupied (by Vulcan or Pluto) so potential casting is forbidden (i.e. no planet is formed). The planet casting is delayed until an acceptable mid-orbit casting position is reached, then it is cast

Table 8-2 lists the actual and predicted location of the planets using the R = 0.3 X 2(10 - u/12:00) ASTRO-METRICS version of the slightly modified Titus-Bode law. These values are in rAU at the time of casting. They are scaled downward in distance as the Sun's and Vulcan's PBH accrue first heavy, then lighter element matter. Neptune's orbital position is usually considered to violate the Titus-Bode law. However, the mid-orbit casting process now explains why this happened. The casting order for Vulcan's and the Sun's planets PBHs is offered as an explanation for this apparent violation. See Figure 8-2.

Quantum mechanical forces likely forbid casting of a planet's PBH into a given orbit if another (Pluto's) PBH is already there. Then, the stimulated (Sun's or Vulcan's) PBH retains this energy and momentum until it is again stimulated. When this occurs, a double planet is formed and it is denoted herein as a mid orbit casting.

Stimulation occurs when one of the co-orbiting PBHs perturbs the other. The mid orbit casting is a result of spin axis stimulation, not spin plane crossing. It casts two planetary PBHs (one a reflection of the casting force) at almost the same time but at a slightly smaller distance.

The mid orbit casting of Neptune's, the Earth's and possibly Planet A's PBH was from this abnormal reflection of energy and momentum. A second, much smaller, planetary PBH was ejected from the opposite side. Thus, Triton's PBH was cast slightly later than Neptune's PBH and into a slightly smaller orbit. Consequently, it had a slightly shorter period. Eventually, Triton's PBH caught up with Neptune's PBH. As it attempted to pass, it was dragged backward (probably by gravitational forces) into a retrograde orbit. A non-retrograde orbit would be possible only if Triton's PBH orbit was slightly greater than Neptune's was, or quite eccentric. The former condition would be impossible because the primary, not the reflected, PBH is in the larger (earlier cast) of the two orbits.

Saturn's, Jupiter's, the Asteroid's and Mars' PBHs were formed from the co-orbiting Sun/Vulcan PBH system at the time the laws governing formation of the solar system were changing from quantum mechanical to classical mechanical ones. See Appendix F (found in ASTRO- METRICS, not included in this web site). The transient, resulting from this change, required 0.4 to be added to the orbital radii computed from the casting equations already discussed just during this transition period. The casting equations predict Mercury's orbit to be at 0.3 AU, without the influence of the transition (or the addition of 0.4). However, there is a nagging possibility that tiny Mercury may have been the first cast of Vulcan's planets (at 348 AU). Possibly so, but the capture geometry has never been worked out.

The largest asteroid, Ceres, may have been the planet seeded by the Sun's and Vulcan's PBH system during this transient phenomena. Both this planet (and its satellites) would have had very small PBHs, many of which have already evaporated. The detonation of these small PBHs shattered their heavy element crust thereby forming the asteroid belt. Possibly the two satellites of Mars are the result of a shattered Martian satellite because they are so small and in the Martian spin plane. However, they may also be captured asteroids as most suspect.

Apparently, the disturbance of this transient phenomena was enough to generate a mid orbit casting of the Earth's (and then the Moon's) PBH. Both were cast into a slightly perturbed orbit. Table 8-2 illustrates that the Earth's orbital position is the result of a mid orbit casting at 0.3 X 21.6472 = 0.94 AU. Note: An Astronomical Unit (the AU) is defined as the average distance the Earth is from the Sun. The 0.94 value is the theoretical value the ASTRO-METRICS model predicts. The transient (in going from quantum mechanical to classical mechanical laws) perturbed the Moon's original solar orbit and made it elliptical enough to be captured by the Earth in a normal posigrade orbit (now orbiting Earth 5 deg. off the ecliptic). Either retrograde or posigrade orbits would have been possible, depending on the impact of this transient.


The two most important new planets predicted by this work are Vulcan and Septimus. Marginal, but reasonable, evidence exists that Vulcan has been found.1 Its orbit has a Perihelion/Aphelion of 134/454 AU respectively. Therefore its average separation from the Sun is just a little larger than average. Normal visual binary star separation is usually less than 200 AU.2.

Septimus may have also been found and is discussed in the same reference 1b. But there is disagreement as to whether the Sun or Vulcan cast it. Septimus-A in Table 8-1 was cast by the Sun and should be at least 30 or 40 Earth Masses in size.3. Notice that Septimus' casting was delayed three times because Vulcan (or its PBH seed) restricted casting. The required quantum state was not available. Two normal castings and one polar casting opportunity was possible. Septimus-A was (or presumably would have been) cast in the Sun's spin plane like the well known solar planets. Cranking of its orbit by Vulcan could have occurred, and that would have tilted its orbital inclination.

Septimus-B would be cast in an orbit around Vulcan, but it would be quickly captured by the Sun (near Vulcan's perihelion). See Table 8-3A. Both Septimus-A and Septimus-B could eventually fall into an orbit similar to the one already found by Forbes. However, both, or only one, could also be scattered completely out of our solar system or be captured into a orbit about the Sun far removed from it. See: Table 4A in the 1999 Paper.1

Table 8-3A
Planet Undiscovered 347.2
Pluto 173.6
1996TL66? 86.8
Septimus-B 5.4

Septimus-B is a transition planet cast from Vulcan. Its mass is difficult to estimate. Scaling its mass to the current estimate of the mass of Vulcan's heavy element core leads to about 0.2 Earth Masses but it could easily be the size of the Earth or even a little larger. Pluto and 1996TL66 are all we have to go on. Masses of planets spawned by dark stars are risky esitmates at best. See Table 8-3B.

Table 8-3B

Orbit Element Forbes Harrington Anderson
Mass(Earth = 1) ? 4 5
Aphelion (AU) 122 143 ?
Period (Years) 1,076 1,019 700 - 1,000
Eccentricity 0.16 0.411 substantial
Inclination (deg.) 45 32.4 high
Magnitude ? 14 ?

While stability calculations have not been made, planets like Septimus-A would likely have been scattered by Vulcan, or cranked into an orbit inclination much less than 45 deg. This is inconsistent with Forbes', Harrington's or Anderson's anticipated planet.5 Additionally, the masses of any of these anticipated planets is not consistent with the anticipated mass of Septimus-A. Thus, Septimus-B seems to be the best estimate for the planet anticipated by Forbes, Harrington and Anderson. There orbital parameters are also a reasonable fit. Most of the other planetismals' (seeds) cast from Vulcan may have detonated, therefore these bodies are no longer anticipated. However, one more undiscovered planetisimal still is anticipated (undiscovered), and is thought to be larger than Pluto. It is anticipated to be in a highly elliptical solar orbit (like 1996TL66) and to have an orbital inclination similar, but smaller than, Vulcan's. The transfer dynamics of it or Septimus-B have not yet been fully investigated.

Figure 8-3. The Akkadian Seal © Sitchin 12th Planet


It is asserted that the 4,500 year-old Akkadian seal (Courtesy Z. Sitchin, the 12th Planet) offers a truthful depiction of our known solar system and that it indicates the presence of additional planets within it. See figure 8-3.Obviously, it contains size and count information about the known planets. The analysis contained in this work indicates the presence of two new planets, (and by inference the comet swarm that Sitchin denotes as the planet Marduk & its satellites) with a 3,600 year highly elliptical (comet like) orbit. This indicates that knowledge beyond today's astronomical data was available to the Akkadians. But just how coherent is the seal's data with known data?

[Updated 15 July 2015]
Beginning with objects on the Akkadian seal(Figure 8-3) after Vulcan, in clockwise order, the inter planets are designated A, B, C and are followed by the Jovian bodies Uranus, Neptune, Jupiter and Saturn. The three distant tiny ones are X Eris? (with a smaller Biden VP313 further out?) and Y (Pluto?) near A and B. Planet Z is between Neptune and Jupiter. Planet Z does not clearly appear, but Sitchin claims that it is there and labels it Pluto. When someone is shown a depiction of our solar system, the Sun, Jovian planets and Vulcan are clearly illustrated but often the inner planets are displayed on an expanded scale.4 Outer bodies, like Pluto, Eris or Planet Z may be displayed on other scales or they may be just too difficult to measure their small diameters.

The diameter of the "planets" were measured. The count of the Jovian planets and the inner planets is also correct. Four planets, Uranus, Neptune, Pluto and Eris would be visually undetectable to the Akkadians. Two extra Pluto-like planets, as the seal indicates, are Also anticipated in this section. Scaling to Vulcan's planets offers an Earth size planet at 128 AU (see Forbe's planets).97 Vulcan is smaller than the 237 Earth masses anticipated/indicated by crop circle T367.1 In conclusion, the diameter of planets on the Akkadian seal are associated with the logarithms of the masses of the known planets in our solar system.

Distance measurements were also attempted on the "planets" found in Figure 8-3. See Table 8-5. Pluto (Planet Z) related measurements are taken from Sitchin's sketches. The distant planets X, Y, Z, Septimus and Vulcan are at different distances from the Star (presumed to be our Sun). The ratio of the distances of Septimus to Vulcan is 3.59. Note that if this value is a logarithmic distance based on the number 3 (maybe they have three digits on each limb), its value of 33.59 = 51.6. That is, Septimus would be 51.6 times as far as Vulcan is from the Sun. This distance of 23,426 AU corresponds well to Matese' postulated planet thought to be orbiting at 25,000 AU in the outer Oort cloud.6 While this seems very far away, it is only about twice as far away from the Sun as Proxima Centauri is from Alpha Centauri A (also a G2 class star).

[Updated 12 July 2015]

Three sources for the Akkadian astronomical information are postulated; extra-terrestrial alien contact, "channeling" or an advance human civilizations like Atlantis or Mu. Channeling would provide information in the "language of the times". This seems to be ruled because the planets' mass are scaled to "truth" by logarithms. There is also little (if any) evidence of a human civilization technologically advanced beyond our own. Only one with a far- advanced astrology could provide the insights necessary to compute Vulcan's and Septimus' orbits, and there is no evidence that the ancients had any understanding of orbital mechanics necessary to describe this planet even if they had found it. Extra-terrestrials (the Hill aliens - discussed in a later section) have exhibited the propensity to count in binary (or logarithmically) and they also have displayed 3-D holographic maps whose perspective could account for Septimus' small size. But there is no reason to believe that the Akkadian seal came from them. Another Extra-terrestrial alien species, however, that count distances in powers of three, as the Hill aliens count in powers of two, offer a possible source for the Akkadian seal. Moreover, they also, could have holographic 3-D displays of our solar system.

Septimus' mass still remains an enigma. Its size could have been obscured by a holographic 3-D projection. If Matese's planet is Septimus A, it may have a core mass of about 40 earth Masses. Being far from the Sun, it could have acquired and held 50 times its core mass in hydrogen. The Sun would be too far away to heat the hydrogen and disburse it. It is postulated that Jupiter acquired its metallic hydrogen core before the Sun ignited. But this distant Septimus could have continued to acquire hydrogen after solar ignition. Thus, Septimus is anticipated to have a higher concentration of hydrogen than Jupiter (90%). It may be mostly lighter elements like the Sun (98%). Then Septimus' net mass would be around 2,000 earth masses or 6 Jovian masses, just as Matese anticipates. The evidence for the above is very thin, with the most substantial being the distance ratio scaled to Vulcan. Range data from the Akkadian seal is most tenuous and there is little, if anything reliable, to calibrate it with.

Nevertheless, the image of our Sun & Vulcan, the Jovian and terrestrial planets as well as a few planetesimals in the outer solar system is conveyed by the Akkadian seal. A distant planet, as Matese predicts, is likewise in the same image. Matese's distant planet may not influence the crop circle T367 image, as that image is to warn of the pending pass of a swarm of comets about the Sun. Its purpose, unlike that of the Akkadian seal, is not to describe our entire solar system.
