Itinerary 2.4, page 5.

===================================================

In the current theory, the tides are depicted in accord with the supposed cause, without taking into account of how they develop in reality.


Number of the tide waves: two.

[P1] The Moon attracts the surface waters of the oceans to the west, especially to two regions, which revolve around the Earth, forming two protuberances, or tidal waves, ...

Sublunar point, opposite point.

[P1] .... which tend to keep themselves in the same relation with the position of the Moon, near the two so-called sublunar points; the first on the sublunar meridian, the second on the opposite one.

An image consequence of a supposition.

[P3] In the classical description of the tides, the space and time, on which the cause (attraction) operates, are the same on which the effect (tide wave) manifests itself.

In fact, if the cause was attraction, the effect (the formation of the tidal wave) would be visible almost immediately afterwords.

The image of two tidal waves which are moving westwards, from a meridian to the next, is the logical consequence if you assume gravity is the cause. As long as you don't go check the facts.

The remarkable difference between the timing of the cause, and the times when the effect becomes visible as tidal waves is one of the proofs that the cause is not attraction. But the proof is ignored.

The tides seen from the satellites.

[P3] Before going on, let's watch once more the video by NASA, with a different explanation, on the number and directions of the tide waves.

Delay between action and effect.

[P3] In reality, between the times of the action by the Moon and Sun (decrease of water density), and the times of the effects (tidal wave), there is a considerable delay. That changes everything.

It gives rise to multiple space units, called basins, where, inside each one, there is a single tidal wave.

This delay is brought forth, as one of the evidences, that the tides would be the consequence of the cyclic variation of the water density, caused by the action of the Moon and Sun.

The delay in question is attributed to the time necessary for the compensations, among areas of different water density, as it will be explained in the itinerary six, whose topic is the tide mechanism.
