This is a continuation of the perturbation discussion, following the post:

PERTURBATIONS - the Zetas Explain - #1

and dealing with the issue of the speed of the orbit upon approach or exit from a perturbation not being equal.

While the larger planet is slowing to pull toward the smaller planet, on its approach, the smaller planet finds the larger coming to MEET it and increases its speed toward the larger somewhat due to this. The POINT OF PASSAGE is not equidistant in the perturbation swath, it is placed toward the early part of the drama, due to this, with the rush to meet being quicker and taking place in a shorter period of time than the lingering exiting phase. Since the two planets are traveling in the same direction, they spend more time together during the exiting phase than the approach.

If either the larger or smaller planet were standing still, the human argument that the speed of orbit is compensated upon approach and exit might be valid, but as they are both MOVING, the perturbation is NOT equal on both sides. Net - the smaller planet should be slowed overall in its orbital speed, as it has the larger planet in close proximity BEHIND it for a LONGER PERIOD OF TIME. This is due to the larger planet tagging along behind the smaller planet. Net - the larger planet should be sped up overall in its orbital speed, as it is being encouraged to chase the smaller planet now AHEAD of it for a longer period of time. This should be intuitively obvious to humans, who find the car slows more, overall, the longer the brakes are applied. To state that the length of time is irrelevant would be absurd.
