Tycho’s Geocentric Cosmology

(For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;

(2 Corinthians 10:4-5) KJV

Tycho Brahe made meticulous observation of the cosmos. He was on the Earth so, naturally, he observed a Geocentrospheric system. The problem was that he didn’t know about binary systems because they hadn’t made Star Wars yet.

He hired Kepler, a mathematician, to make sense of his observations and find out why his model didn’t predict planetary motion accurately. He was afraid that Kepler would use his observations to prove heliocentricity. According to history, that’s what happened.

The problem is that we’re still on the Earth and the cosmos is still functioning normally. We’re still watching the cosmos rotate around the Earth every single day. Every. Single. Day. It’s empirical. Heliocentricity is a theoretical model of the Geocentrospheric reality. Heliocentric and Geocentrospheric are two frames of reference in the same system, but you’re on the Earth, you’re not on the sun.

If only Tycho had lived to see Star Wars. Here’s an even more elegant depiction of the motion of planetary bodies in our cosmos:
