Were it to vary by the math you postulate, the forces would NEVER
be equal. Your postulation is not descriptive, nor can we relay
this to you in mathematical terms, which would be complex, for
two reasons - 1) Nancy does not speak this language fluently, any
more than she speaks French or Russian, and thus would stumble in
trying to translate the concept we would be giving her, 2) your
math flounders with several misconceptions and thus your math is
a flawed language that would prevent our communications.

Pardon? How did you make that leap? ONLY occur if an attractive
force and non other existed? This does not follow logically! Let
us rephrase in keeping with the facts. Kepler's handy little
equation could ONLY exist if the repulsion force were present,
keeping the planets from going into the Sun directly. Thus the
Earth existed long enough for life to evolve, Kepler to be born
with intelligence, and for Kepler to ponder the heavens.
