; "Elder Orson Pratt wrote: 'A new theory of celestial mechanism is, at first, startling to those who have not given the subject their special attention. They have unhappily formed an idea that all the varied phenomena of the universe can be accounted for by the grand discoveries already made. But this erroneous notion is not general. ' Postulating his own ideas of the design of the universe and his new theory of its mechanism, he asks key questions followed by hypotheses and answers. "Why are the orbital movements of planets, asteroids and satellites, in the solar system, in one general direction, namely from west to east, instead of moving indiscriminately in all directions? "Why do planetary bodies rotate upon their respective axes? Why do they rotate from west to east instead of the contrary direction? Is there a law governing their diurnal periods? "Observation seems to indicate that there is an intra-Mercurial planet, so near the sun as to have a period less than the solar rotation; how can this be possible?"
