Celestial Astronomy - Mercurian Phase

Charging for the Journey Ahead


Once a comet becomes a planet after its clockstart orbit, it simultaneously is going through two phases. The lunar accumulation phase where comets that lose the battle to become a planet go through a linkage orbit and have their motion moored to the planet in minor articulation. The other phase is the mercurian phase which is derived from the porpheme merc which is slang for "to leave" and usury which means to overcharge.

To leave and to overcharge describe the process that the planet is undergoing. Mercury, previously a comet, is now the planet residing closest to the sun and is becoming superheated and its core is being electromagnetically charged by the sun. It will go through this phase until it becomes overcharged and starts its journey away from the sun.

What is also interesting as you will see as we proceed through the system is the celestial bodies are basically named for what they do when you break their names down using wormation. For example, most moons have an actual name but Earths moon is called the moon which explains what it does, moor motion. We are going to see that same pattern repeating as we look at the names of the planets as well. 

Another porpheme that is a combination enagram and ecronym is PLANET or Energy PLANT. If you loosely apply the term living organism to a plant you can better understand a planet. Just like a plant has an internal mechanism that controls it growth process once it is placed in soil and given light and water, a planet follows an analogous path.

The sun and the orbital region close to the sun could be thought of as the soil, light, and water that bring life to a plant are bringing life to the energy plant or planet.  The important part to realize here is the planet is a living organism. The term is being used loosely here you could just call it a living object if the term organism seems inappropriate. The key point is that the composition of the planet in combination with the suns energy and the proximate location of its orbit is going to determine how it grows.

It might be easier to go back and think of the comet as a seed being dropped in the soil when it binds with the sun. After going through its wing orbits and clockstart orbit, it begins the process of growing. The seed opens up and a small root comes out to start retrieving nutrients from the soil. A small scion (shoot) emerges and starts the orientation process of trying to grow upward in hopes of breaking through the soil and finding light.

The compositional makeup of the planet is going to cause it to start orienting itself as well. The core is heating up to begin the plate tectonic phases and volcanoes will emerge. This will allow the planet to cycle the heavier elements into the core which increase its ability to hold a more powerful charge similar to getting a battery upgrade in an electric car.

Another key element in the development of the planet is the number of moons it acquires during lunar accumulation. Just like each person appears similar in the sense they are humans, closer inspection reveals they are vastly different based on their experiences growing up. Moons play an integral part in determining the unique personality traits of the planet.

In addition to the compositional makeup, the planet already has it is also getting new material from solar debris that is being deposited on it each day. It needs to go through this cyclical process of getting that debris into its core so it can retrieve the heavy elements that improve the quality of the core while removing the lighter elements that function better developing the exterior shell and atmosphere.

In the next article, we will look more at how volcanoes help shape the planet.
