Galactic Birkeland Currents and the Sun's Motion

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?

One possible surprising conclusion is that Planets are slowed in their orbits more by reaching maximum declination than by either Perihelion or Aphelion. For example Mercury spends 1 day* at ±25º (Aphelion/Perihelion) and 4 days at ±28º North/South Maximum declination. Venus spends 13 days at ±24º North/South Maximum declination, but only 3 days at ±20º (Aphelion/Perihelion). Earth spends 23 days at ±23º North/South Maximum declination, but only 9 days at ±22º (Aphelion/Perihelion). For Mercury, Venus and Earth, the objection may be raised that Max. Declination and Aphelion/Perihelion occur close together. However, the same “breaking” effect is true of Mars, which spends 54 days at ±24º North/South Maximum declination and only 6 days at ± 11º Aphelion or Perihelion. *(day number can vary slightly). What mechanism is at play here? Also raises questions with regard to Milankovitch Eccentricity assumptions.
