A theory, promoted by Walter Cruttenden, argues that precession of the equinox is caused by a binary companion to the sun. Has this any scientific basis?
Mr Cruttenden's website claims that "science is on the verge of an amazing discovery - our Sun has a companion star carrying us through a great cycle of stellar influences." He claims in a movie The Great Year that the cause of precession of the equinox may go beyond the solar system. I thought lunisolar torque provided a comprehensive physical explanation for precession, and am just wondering if Cruttenden's theory is just a rehashing of Vedic myth. Another website makes various claims about the scientific status of this theory.
