Does the Moon Rotate?

Beyond the boundaries of established science an avalanche of exotic ideas compete for our attention. Experts tell us that these ideas should not be permitted to take up the time of working scientists, and for the most part they are surely correct. But what about the gems in the rubble pile? By what ground-rules might we bring extraordinary new possibilities to light?

Junior on the merry-go-round would see the same background with every orbit. He is still not rotating about the pole through the horse's back.

Yes, you could say it's been mentioned.

If You think of libration differently than accepted, it demonstrates something wonderfully.
You need to consider that no-thing is so called moving , but is instead displacing relative to the field it is within.

Then consider how the out of balance and counter rotating fields of Earth and the sun are symbiotically causing the various forms of libration.
That there is no such mythical force called gravity, and the tides here on water covered Earth are similar consequences of this interaction between fields, as will be sun spot activity on the sun.

You are not moving when walking or running, but are displacing within Your own local field, and are unable to displace when that field ceases.....You will be termed as been dead.
A clue is shown then to how all is within a solid packed universe, as so called rigor mortis, until the earths fields permeates to lay to rest all atoms relative to the field of earth.

This sort of thinking is extremely difficult for the vast majority to accept as their ego's demand that they know the truth.
That light is not travelling, but occurring.
That Walter Russell offered up real insights into the electric universe.

Kevin, read "Secret of Light" and watched some videos but didn't understand most of it. Guess my mind isn't ready to receive the info. I think it's because he uses terms I am not familiar with.

I really don't get the point of this topic.
jtb says:
The moon revolves--changes direction--but does not rotate.

The words ROTATE and REVOLVE are a synonym of each other. They mean the same thing.

There is no actual rod or pole through the lunar body, no axis.
The same is true of what is called the "center of gravity" of any object.
These are ideas or terms useful to facilitate discussion of topics in physics and life in general.

As the moon goes around the earth the same half of the sphere constantly faces our planet.
Whether it rotates or revolves is ..... ???

"How many angels can dance on the head of a pin"
Now there is something worth talking about.

Jack, true physics deals with real objects. Imaginary objects, like an imaginary axle, or axis, are used to understand how objects behave and therefore must be treated as real.

If I used the term "revolve" or "center of gravity", it was probably quoting someone else. To avoid confusion I use the term "orbit" rather than "revolve" and "center of orbit" rather than "center of gravity". An axis is an imaginary axle. If an axis doesn't behave like an axle it is only real in your mind and you are dealing with metaphysics rather than physics.
