No. Not a vortex. A helix is not a vortex.

And he should look up reference frames too, before saying that the heliocentric model is incorrect.

That sort of thing really annoys me.

Aye, this really just comes down to frames of reference. The heliocentric model, definitionally, locks the frame of reference to a position relative to the Sun - thus the Sun appears to remain still while the planets orbit it.

The video's frame of reference wanders all over the place arbitrarily and doesn't actually give us any sense of what motion the Sun's engaged in - we need to lock the frame of reference somewhere to get that sense so the motion is relative to something else.

It's an odd video as it seems like the maker is trying to claim some kind of credit for creating a new model, even though the model he's showing IS the heliocentric model. Then he adds in this bizarre concept of 'vortex' which means he's implicitly inferring components of vortices that just don't apply to the solar system, like not thinking about the fact that vortices form inside a medium (an environment) which impacts every aspect of the vortex, while space isn't a medium so the bodies are solely moving from inertia and gravitational attraction. The bodies are not trending inwards; it's clearly a helix and he could've appealed to plenty of other natural things to New Ageify his vid from the perspective of a helix.

Pretty picture, but the message is too confused to help anyone.

"Our Solar System moves through space at 70,000 km/hr." Fascinating. In relation to what, who measured it and how? Not important enough for D J Sadhu to mention. More importantly "Life is vortex, not just rotation." and "The Solar System is part of life."

Sadhu seems to be competing with Deepak Chopra in the profound sounding utter bullshit stakes. Sorry, Sudha, you're close to him, but you'll never beat my favourite Chopraism: "Attention and intention are the mechanics of manifestation."
