That means, in a particular space - four (4) ingredients take part in creation. As if, in a frying pan, food-stuffs mix together and form a chemical compound or food having a new taste. Thus, the initiation or birth of the plus four (+4) theory took place.

    In this theory, the first twelve numbers i.e. 1 to 12 have been taken into account for the analysis of twelve (12) different segments of a human body: twelve (12) different aspects of a human life: twelve (12) different factors of a business organization as well as - twelve (12) pillars for the formation of a country or nation as a whole.

In fact, Uranus is meant for the said purpose amongst the planets in the universe and likewise the lungs of a human body where the gaseous exchange takes place, Uranus has taken up the job as the lung of the entire solar system. Whatever obnoxious gaseous wastages come out from the combustion of the Sun, move around the solar system by means of the solar wind, and are usually dragged by Uranus to ensure a conducive environment in space as well for the convenient movement of the other celestial bodies. Uranus thus plays the noble role of a scavenging planet in the solar system. In Vedic astrology, it was believed that the formation or creation of Uranus happened just to store the obnoxious gases coming out as the output of the continuous combustion of the Sun. Uranus is an atmospheric planet and static in its topographical features and devoid of water in it. The most important function of Uranus is to keep the inflow of sunrays balanced into the earth by the selective antagonism of Mars, which is the carrier of sunlight on Earth. The fact seems to be incredible but it happens with the theory of conversion of energy into different forms which we are well versed in our scientific studies. Uranus is a superior celestial body considering its distance from the Sun.

Moreover, it is seen that whenever Venus is in angular contradiction during its rotation or being adversely viewed by any planet or planets, primarily by Saturn, causes Earthquake.
