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 plus four (+4) theory took place.

    In this theory, 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. The theory has versatile applications which has been discussed exhaustively in my book, Luster of Eternity (ISBN: 1413735746).

This is due to its typical feature of rotation through the acute elliptical pathways round the Sun which allows the planet sometimes to come close to the Sun as well as keeps the planet at the most distant position from the Sun. On account of such a sharp elliptical movement has attributed the planets the feature of the highest heat sensitivity. Pluto is a superior celestial body considering its distance from the Sun.

    Uranus is a passive planet which depends on Saturn to communicate its effect on Earth. If we smoke that ruins our health, but Uranus smokes to save the Earth as well as other planets from destruction at the cost of its own health. 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 the obnoxious gaseous wastages come out from the combustion of the Sun, move around the solar system by means of solar wind, are usually dragged by the Uranus to ensure a conducive environment in the space as well for the convenient movement of the other celestial bodies. Uranus thus plays the noble role as 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 is devoid of water in it. The most important function of Uranus is to keep inflow of sun-rays balanced into the earth by the selective antagonization of Mars, which is the carrier of sunlight in 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 aspected by any planet or planets, primarily by the Saturn, causes Earthquake.
