Secondly, for the year, month, and day on which the lunar revolution to be
erected falls, it should be sought from the ephemerides or tables from which the
radical place of the Moon was taken at what hour and moment the Moon will
return to its own radical place in the ecliptic, without any consideration of its
radical latitude, to which it does not return, but taking note of its latitude at the
moment of the revolution for the purpose of directing the Moon itself monthly. And
thus the mean time ...

Should the moon, as full moon in spring and autumn, stand in the equinoxes as
the sun, she would then be as long above as below the horizon. 31. If we
suppose the moon to be at L' (pi. 10, fig. 3), in conjunction or between the earth
and sun, then the centres of these three bodies will be in the straight line RE.

1*/, The moon travels from west to east. 2d. It has «n axial rotation at the rate of
ten Mies per hour, and in order that no Jsconstruction shall be put upon this xial
motion, a lunarian is brought into •the field and made to travel in the opposite
direction. 3rd. The moon presents the same side to the earth at all times. Surely
we must be mistaken in the term revolution, or perhaps there is an astronomical
interpretation which we have never learned ; but hearken to Webster : "

I say ' mean period of rotation,' for although as a matter of fact it is only the
revolution which is subject to any considerable variation, the rotation is also not
perfectly uniform. We know, furthermore, that if there had been, long ago, a near
agreement between the mean rotation and revolution, the present exact
agreement would have resulted, through the effects of the mutual attractions of
the earth and moon. But, so far as I know, astronomers have not yet carefully
considered the ...

The next subject of discussion is what may be called the revolution qf the Earth in
lunar epicycle. By this is meant the revolution of the earth around what is deemed
to be the common centre of gravity of earth and moon ; the existence ofthis earth-
motion is an acknowledged fact. Its period is that of the lunation, or 29.53+ days.
The amplitude or extent of the orbit, in lunar epicycle, is, on the received theories,
of very indefinite value. The revolution is, according to the theory, around the ...

Revolution? According to Debray, the Cuban revolution showed that you did not
need the backing of a mass party to make a revolution. Under the right conditions
, dramatic actions by small bands of committed revolutionaries could precipitate
the revolution, bringing over the otherwise immobile masses. Debray's theory of
revolution helped Weatherman believe revolution was possible— and led to a
commitment to violence. There was no need to wait for the right conditions to
present ...

Further, he postulated that the Earth and the Moon were cognate matter, like the
two stones: If the Moon and the Earth were not retained, each in its orbit, by their
animal or other equivalent forces, the Earth would ascend towards the Moon one
fifty-fourth part of the distance between them, and the Moon descend towards the
Earth about fifty-three parts; and they would there join together; assuming,
however, that the substance of each is of one and the same density.24 Kepler

The oldest fossil shells have only nine growth lines per chamber, compared with
the 30 of modern shells, suggesting that the lunar month has grown longer and
that the moon used to revolve faster around Earth than it does now. This in turn
implies that the moon must have been closer to Earth, since the closer a satellite
is to a planet, the faster it must revolve to remain in orbit. The “clocks” in the
nautilus shell indicate that the revolution of the moon 420 million years ago took
only nine ...
