The distance between the Earth and the Sun has no influence on the decay rate of radioactive chlorine. You could ask: "And why should it anyway?", because it is well known that the decay of radionuclides is as reliable as a Swiss clock. Recently, US-American scientists, however, attracted attention when they postulated that the decay rate depends on the flow of solar neutrinos and, thus, also on the distance from the Earth to the Sun. Their assumption was based, among other things, on older measurement data of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB). PTB researchers have now definitively refuted the assumption of the Americans.
The half-life of radioactive isotopes, i.e. the period in which half of all atomic nuclei have decayed, is regarded as invariably stable. In the case of the carbon isotope 14C, this period amounts, for example, to 5700 years. This property is, among other things, made use of for the dating of archeological findings. There was great excitement when a group of US-American scientists recently published measurement data of the radioactive isotope 36Cl which showed seasonal variations and explained this with the influence of solar neutrinos. All the more since billions of neutrinos from the Sun hit every square centimetre of the Earth every second and remain almost ineffective (they penetrate the Earth as if it weren't there).
Scientists of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt have now carried out new measurements and have published their results in the journal "Astroparticle Physics". For three years, they checked the activity of samples with 36Cl in order to detect possible seasonal dependencies. Whereas the US-Americans had determined the count rates with gas detectors, PTB used the so-called TDCR liquid scintillation method which largely compensates disturbing influences on the measurements. The result: The measurement results of PTB clearly show fewer variations and do not indicate any seasonal dependence or the influence of solar neutrinos. "We assume that other influences are much more probable as the reason for the observed variations", explains PTB physicist Karsten Kossert. "It is known that changes in the air humidity, in the air pressure and in the temperature can definitively influence sensitive detectors."

But yet, you can find varying information via neutrino effect and the inability to measure neutrinos in any way, and their effect on "realtime" radioactive decay" which is the standard of what REAL TIME, really means....as in the keeping of time depends upon the tracking of the half life decay of several radioactive elements, not solar or lunar effects....
A few years ago, the radioactive differential of decay was tracked as being anomalous, per the neutrino output of the sun, which even I find interesting, as they've said since 1962 they couldn't track nor measure neutrinos in any real way....
What's terribly interesting about this effect, is if it's real, it would flip the "standard model of physics" on its head.....
Melvin Schwartz and the Discovery of the Muon Neutrino
Resources with Additional Information
Melvin Schwartz was the co-winner of the 1988 Nobel Prize in Physics "for the neutrino beam method and the demonstration of the doublet structure of the leptons through the discovery of the muon neutrino". 'In 1962, Schwartz, with Leon Lederman and Jack Steinberger … discovered the muon neutrino at the Alternating Gradient Synchrotron (AGS), the then brand-new accelerator at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory. …
First coming to Brookhaven in 1955, Schwartz performed his Ph.D. thesis research through 1956 at the Laboratory's first accelerator, the Cosmotron. While finishing his thesis, he was employed by the Laboratory from 1956-58.
Returning to Columbia University, Schwartz continued to do research at Brookhaven, working at the AGS from 1958-63. After relocating to Stanford University in 1966, he maintained his research ties with Brookhaven.
In 1970, Schwartz founded a major computer-security company, Digital Pathways, Inc., in Mountain View, California. Later, Nicholas Samios, former Brookhaven Lab Director and currently head of the BNL-RIKEN Research Center, encouraged Schwartz to return to physics. He did so in 1991, returning to Brookhaven Lab as Associate Director for High Energy and Nuclear Physics. …
Melvin Schwartz was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a fellow of the American Physical Society (APS). He received the Hughes Prize from the APS in 1964.'1

I believe a lot of what you say. But ask yourself if it really matters. Also, is there anything you can truly do about it.
I have a wife that I've been with and loved for 36 years now, plus 2 adult daughters. I love these Ladies like no tomorrow, so if this place is make believe Earth, or Hell, I'll take it - whatever it's origin...They let me love my Girls here.
Enjoy the ride and sleep well, friend.

No you aren't derailing that's for your input. And yeah I could've went on there are smaller particles I was merely trying to articulate basis for the OP.

definitely similarities I'll have to read that sounds like where im coming from. although he sais the evil created the physical world. I'm saying we all lived together as energy in perfect harmony and that a form of pure energy began to project into earths paradise, the place in which we already existed before.
And I plead not that evil created the physical, but that it is a derivative of chaos. a picture that looks intricately beautiful from afar, but the more and more chaotic it becomes the closer you get to it.

This thing's not new to ATS. Much better you tell this to 99% of brains who doesn't visit ATS. Maybe that way you could turn the world a better place.

"Our emotion are the only thing that is real. Anger, sadness, despair, happiness, joy."
To the Hindus and Buddhists these emotions are illusions; BLISS is the only "true" reality known as "Sat-Chit-Ananda" or to Christians as the 7th Heaven, where God resides.
Human emotions tie you into this reality, which is a created illusion; transcending human emotion and reaching Zen are the keys to escaping the Matrix.
Emotional attachments are known as "fetters" and must be shed before one reaches Enlightenment or "Liberation from Karmic re-birth" on Earth or another birthing planet in our Universe...and there are several.
