The Living Force
Precession is, conventionally, explained as a natural result of a spinning object with a torque applied at an angle to the axis of rotation. In the case of the Earth, the torque is a consequence of the rotational axis being tilted with respect to the orbital plane, together with the equatorial bulge resulting from the centrifugal force arising from the Earth's rotation.The guy behind the “See The Pattern” channel identified a link between our star and Sirius as being siblings in a dance around a Birkland filament that answered a lot of questions in a much simpler explanation of Astrological Precession than any conventional astrophysicist has been able to give…
The biggest question being WHY does the earth precess at all? (Unless there is an un-identified force acting on it…)
The phenomenon can be observed in a spinning top.
To me that seems to be a much more straightforward explanation than large-scale Birkeland currents.
What you're missing is the density of the solar material and just the sheer amount of it. Nuclear fusion happens in the core, which is buried under a lot of stuff, and the deep stuff especially is very dense - 150 g/cm^3 (compare that to lead, 11 g/cm^3). When gamma photons are emitted in a given reaction, they don't just fly out into space because there's a lot of stuff between them and empty space. That means a given photon has a 'mean free path' - the average distance it travels before encountering an electron, ion, or atom - that is extremely short. Each time it encounters an electron, it's scattered off in a random direction. Each time it encounters an ion or atom, there's a chance it will be absorbed, after which it will be re-emitted. Each one of those interactions randomizes the path of the photon. Further, each time a photon is absorbed and re-emitted by an atom or ion, there's a good chance that rather than one photon of the same energy being emitted, several photons of lower energy (with the sum ultimately equalling the energy of the original photon) will be emitted instead.Missed one glaring failure of the solar nuclear model (too early, no coffee yet lol):
The observed radiation does not match fusion. The workaround is to say the radiation is trapped for 10000+ years in order to down-shift the gamma rads. Flares and CMEs disrupt the "containment field" should we not see signals of way higher nuclear wavelengths and particles?
The combined process results in two key effects. First, it takes a long time for a quantum of energy generated in the core to be released from the surface of the Sun; something on the order of 500,000 years. Second, by the time that energy ultimately escapes, it is not as a single gamma ray but rather as a large number of photons of much lower energy. This is why the spectrum of the Sun (and every other star) is not a few spikes at gamma ray wavelengths corresponding to proton-proton fusion reactions, but a thermal spectrum.
