It does fit though. I'm not a physicist, but on the surface nothing strikes me immediately as to why they can't coexist. I mean, these nodes do exist, *and,* we can predict tides centuries into the future. We have been able to predict tides since at least the late 1700s.Good question.....really is.
I guess I'll register a "I don't know the answer to your question" response.
However....it's pretty clear that mass to mass attraction gravity has some problems as illustrated by the images I posted.
We are taught that it's the moon's gravity that pulls on the water.....right?
But it clearly does not fit the observed reality where we have points of zero tide all over the face of the earth.
Care to explain how a mechanical gyro horizon indicator works for flying around a sphere?
Fascinating that these points exist.
I know there are different kinds of gyroscopes. Some are fixed in one plane by some outside force, depending on the instrument it's used in. Wikipedia has a page about attitude indicators, which seems to be the one about which you ask.
