See what I'm saying is that..
If the whatever thing that has been there has ALWAYS been there, it may have affected the evolution of our math as a lot of our numbers and constants
are derivations from observations through experiments. If Something was out there...It didn't JUST appear... but it's been there. See what I'm
So our "known math" may not deduce that something out of the ordinary is there... as it's ALWAYS been there.
And I do know what significant figures are. There is always that boundary for error when you do sigfigs. What I'm simply proposing is that what if
the thing that w'ere saying may or may not exist lays slightly out of that boundary of error?
As you've said before, there were measurement errors causing scientists to believe somethign was pulling on the outer planets.
However, I simply cannot believe we can completely estimate the mass of a planet on a "Fly by"
I also have to wonder about the orbit of comets. and notion that it seems the more further out we get from our solar system, the most elliptical the
orbits of the planets and anomalies seem to become.
