Superstring - No I am not trying to "discredit" anyone or modern astrophysics. I have studied much of Rene Descartes works and discovered that he was always really close to getting the right answer in postulating his theories; but he never seemed to get the exact answers. Descartes work was just ok, such that Newton was able to totally overshadow him. However, Descartes does have some really good ideas. I was only pointing out to Tashja that considering a vortex motion for gravitation is not a new concept and goes back 400 years.
