Planet by planet, this essay moves through the petals of the solar flower to tease out fundamental characteristics ("strange ratios" that invoke π, α and "root-time" numbers) linking their translation(s), rotation and precession(s). Mercury's translation and apsidal precession affords the most amusing case: the apparently objective hoax of its anomalous perihelion advance. Formally, analytically and factually, the authors rigorously prove that there is no anomalous advance of the perihelion of Mercury, only a persistently a-scientific way to compute orbital velocities that introduces everywhere a systematic error. If the claimed advance were anything other than this error, what it would correspond to is the physical difference in time between the computation of the real motion of the planet on the plane of the ecliptic with reference to the rest of the mass of the solar system, vs. computation of the same motion relative to the Sun alone. But finding this real physical difference requires that either motion be computed correctly by reference to the mean geometric radius of each planet's orbit, and not by reference to the semi-major axis of such orbits. Thus, even the real difference was never properly computed by astrophysics, or by Einstein's Relativity for that matter. As computed, the difference itself is merely an artifact of wrong computation.
