The ’discovery of the most distant object ever detected orbiting the sun’ was made by Dr. Michael Brown; associate professor at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena. The object has been named ’Sedna.’ after the Inuit goddess of the ocean. The new planet is approximately 1250 miles in diameter. The last time a true planet was found in our solar system; it was 74 years ago. Pluto, with a diameter of 1400 miles, was discovered way back in 1930. 
Planet X, the 10th planet, has long been a controversial and highly debated subject. Many smaller bodies do orbit the sun in this dark, cold region of space known as the Kuiper Belt. What celestial bodies can be classified as true planets? Sedna is the most distant planet known going around the sun. Its size is nearly identical to Pluto. The question whether or not the new discovery is a real planet will be argued; although, Sedna qualifies as the 10th planet! 
This writer is very excited to know the DISTANCE of Planet X. How far away is Sedna; the 10th planet? An article of mine, dated October 20, 2002, was posted on the Internet. Below is that article, posted on the Farshores web-site, where I made a prediction: When the next planet will be discovered, it will be 7 billion miles away from the sun! 
The article concerns a quaint, old formula once used by astronomers to mathematically illustrate the progression of each planet out from the sun. Bode’s Law was used as a real relationship and was instrumental in the discovery of the Asteroid Belt at the 2.8 A.U. position. Readers can check the planetary orbital positions and compare them to the positions of Bode’s progression. The real positions closely correspond to the mathematical formula. 
Bode’s Law was discarded with the discovery of Neptune in 1846. The Truth is...Pluto still conforms to Bode’s progression! This writer theorized, in that October 2002 article, that when the trans-Plutonian planet was found...it will also conform to Bode’s Law and orbit at a distance of 7 billion miles! The exact wording from the article, written in red, is below: 
’Let this writer PREDICT here and now that a ’large’ true planet will be found one day at 7 billion miles distance.’ 
That day is today; the Ides of March, 2004. My prediction came true! The Press Association reported that Sedna is 6.2 billion miles distant. A report by Andrew Bridges, printed in the Times, said of Sedna: ’It is a frozen world more than 8 billion miles from the Earth.’  
Reports from various countries; from various astronomers will surely differ in their details. The first two sources of information that this writer downloaded off the Internet were a distance of 6.2 billion miles and 8 billion miles. Taking an average of the two, the bottom line is 7 billion miles. Now, check the article from October of 2002; exactly as I predicted. 
This was not done with a dowsing rod or Ouija board. It was simply a belief in the basic premise of Bode’s Law. (Don’t always believe what they tell you to believe and don’t always dismiss what they want you to dismiss). If you took the planet Neptune and placed it where the Asteroid Belt is...there would then be a nearly perfect progression of planets out from the sun.  
What does this mean that the new discovery of Sedna conforms to Bode’s Law? It means there IS something to the Titius-Bode Law; first thought of by Johann Titius in 1766 and later mathematically calculated by J.E. Bode 1778. Sedna as a Bodian planet means that the Asteroid Belt was once a planet. Ceres, Vesta and many thousands of irregular bodies are merely fragments of a planet that once orbited the sun at 2.8. Astronomical Units; at Bode’s distance. (Did a Tesla-based oscillation device shatter the 5th planet in the distant past?)  
This new planet, fitting in with Bode, simply means there is ORDER in the solar system. There may be a perfect PLAN for the universe. The world might not be chaotic. Things do not just occur randomly or happen naturally. Certainly, many things do not originate from random accidents. Originally, SOMEONE placed the planets in their perfect-mathematical, orbital positions! 
Let this writer PREDICT here and now that one day ANOTHER planet will be discovered beyond Sedna at the very next Bode’s Law position. (Let’s take Bode out to the next distance in the progression: We double 768 which equals 1536; add 4 = 1540 and divide by 10 equals 154 Astronomical Units. 154 times 93 million miles and the final answer is 14.3 billion miles. The next planet beyond Sedna in Bode’s progression should be 14+ billion miles distant.) I predict that the next true planet beyond Sedna will not only be the farthest object orbiting the sun; it will also be the LARGEST planet known. This theorized giant will be larger than Jupiter. (I’ll name it ’Caesar’ after today’s publicized discovery). 
Another interesting concept for the artronomers tracking Sedna: See if the new planet would have aligned in the Grand Alignment that occurred some years ago; when the planets created a large, straight line in space. Sedna, and other planets at the far end of the solar system, could also have fallen in line with the rest of the planets. Tracing its path back in time should answer that question. 
There is incredible ORDER, perfection and precision in the universe. On many occasions, what we have accepted as NATURAL; are really the physical results from great acts by great intelligences.  
’Originally posted on Farshores 10/20/02.’ The Titius-Bode Law basically predicts the spacing of the planets or distances from the sun. The relationship was first theorized by Johann Titius in 1766 and was calculated as a mathematical progression by J.E. Bode in 1778.  
Start with the following series of numbers: 
0, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 96, 192, 384, 768 
With the exception of the first two numbers, the others are twice the value of the preceding number. 
Add 4 to each one: 
4, 7, 10, 16, 28, 52, 100, 196, 388, 772 
Then divide by 10: 
.4, .7, 1.0, 1.6, 2.8, 5.2, 10.0, 19.6, 38.8, 77.2 
The astronomers of the 18th Century dubbed this progression a ’law.’ Generally, Bode’s formula follows planetary distances from the sun:

The above chart compares real distances to Bode’s Law and is worth study. The numbers are in Astronomical Units where 1 = 93 million miles. Mercury and Venus, less than one Astronomical Unit, are very close to the formula. Mars is close and large Jupiter exactly conforms to Bode. Saturn is very slightly off. Could the creation of the big ring have contributed to throwing Saturn just off from its perfect placement in the progression?  
ACTUAL DISTANCES - BODE’S LAW MERCURY .39 - .4 VENUS .72 - .7 EARTH 1.0 - 1.0 MARS 1.52 - 1.6 -asteroids- -- 2.8 JUPITER 5.2 - 5.2 SATURN 9.54 - 10.0 URANUS 19.19 - 19.6 NEPTUNE 30.1 PLUTO 39.5 - 38.8 PLANET X 77.2 Hundreds of years ago, astronomical scientists searched for the missing planet in the gap between the inner and outer planets; at the 2.8 Astronomical Unit distance. In 1801, Ceres was discovered at the 2.8 distance and thought to be the Bodian planet. But, Ceres was small and irregular. In 1802, Pallas was discovered at the same distance. Then, Juno in 1804 and Vesta in 1807 were found to be rough planetoids at the 2.8 distance. Later, numerous smaller objects were discovered and now thousands are known to compose the Asteroid Belt. Asteroids are not all over the solar system; they are primarily in the gap between Mars and Jupiter. This is consistent with a planet that has exploded! Ceres, with a diameter of 933 kilometers, is the largest fragment.  
Bode’ law was accepted as factual until the discovery of Nepture in 1846. The old law was discarded and still has not been successfully resurrected as a valid rule. What if Neptune is the exception? Check the chart and eliminate Neptune: The result is PLUTO basically fits the pattern! No one has noticed this. This quaint quasi-law, from the 18th Century, may be a factor if a large Planet 10 is discovered at a 7 billion mile distance from the sun. {Let this writer PREDICT here and now that a ’large’ - true planet will be found one day at 7 billion miles distance}.  
Bode’s Law works for particular planets and their satellite systems. For example, Uranus’ satellites: Miranda; Ariel; Umbriel; Titania and Oberon also are positioned in the Bode’s Law Progression away from their center-planet.  
There have been objects recently observed and generally studied in the Kuiper Belt; that is the area beyond Pluto and 1/5 of the way to the next star. This dark and cold region has barely been investigated. KBOs or Kuiper Belt Objects have been discovered at Caltech, in California. Astronomers have unofficially named the new object QUAOAR (kwah-o-ar). It is more than half the size of Pluto at 780 miles in diameter with a year of 288 Earth years. At 4 billion miles from the sun, Quaoar is the most distant object in our solar system to have been photographed by an optical telescope. {When this writer first saw on the news that the supposed Planet 10 was discovered, its distance was checked to the next Bode’s Law Position}. Small Quaoar does not fit the old law.  
Hundreds of relatively small objects have been identified in the Kuiper Belt. The record holder, before Quaoar, was an object called Varuna; 40% of the size of Pluto or 560 miles. The new Caltech discovery is larger than Pluto’s Moon Charon at 745 miles. Another KBO is Ixion that is the size of Charon. These bodies are not true planets. Concerning Quaoar: ’Its discovery raises the prospects that yet another object as big or perhaps larger than Pluto might lurk out there.’  
A huge planet, larger than Jupiter, going around our sun, is probably far beyond the orbit of Pluto. The outer planets unexpectedly move; being influenced by this undiscovered mass. When the large Planet 10 is discovered...do not be surprised if it is 7 billion miles from the sun or in the next Bode Position after Pluto.  
So what? What does this mean? There is an artificialness to cosmic bodies and cosmic situations. {I have written about the unnaturalness of Venus and the myth of the Moon’s ’gravity-lock’}. THE PLANETS WERE NOT STREWN IN CHAOTIC RANDOMNESS....RATHER, THEY WERE ORIGINALLY PLACED IN PERFECT ORDER.  
Who did this? Who placed the planets there? - Some god; some alien; Slartybartfast; some superangel? Is this Order another example of Life in the solar system like the Face on Mars? After existing for so long, the planets surely have gone through more than a few violent changes. Some titanic upheavals were due to unnatural, planetary wars. The original Bode positions could have altered over the course of time via artificial means. The planet Mars may have gotten its legendary name: God of War because the Martians pulverized its neighbor; the 5th Planet; the one in the gap. Could the cataclysmic event that created the Asteroid Belt have been an act of war?  
Unnaturalness may be the way of the galaxy or a universal law. This also could apply to the human race. Maybe people are not the natural result of millions of years of evolution. What if we were manufactured? Could our primal genesis have been a mass CLONING?
