Abstract: This is the final article in our series dealing with the interplay of spin and gravity that leads to the generation, and continuation of celestial body motions in the universe. In our prior studies we focused on such interactions in the elementary particles, and in the celestial bodies in the solar system. Foremost among the findings was that, along with gravity, matter at all levels exhibits axial spin. We further noted that all freestanding bodies outside our solar system, including the largest such units, the stars and galaxies also spin on their axes. Also, the axial rotation speed of planets in our solar system has a linear positive relationship to their masses, thus hinting at its fundamental and autonomous nature. We have reported that this relationship between the size of the body and its axial rotation speed extends to the stars and even the galaxies. Next, all congregations of matter spin on their axes in the counterclockwise direction; all satellites orbit their mother bodies also in the counterclockwise direction, i.e.: in our solar system, with only rare exceptions, the satellite bodies follow the mother bodies’ axial rotation. This relationship exists also in the case of the rings of planets, the asteroids and the Kuiper belt bodies, as well as the stars and their galaxies. We also noted the intricate involvements between spin and gravity in the exquisite phenomena of synchronous and negative rotations of planets and some satellites; we have explained in detail how these two phenomena occur. The closest large moons of the gas and ice giants and the earth’s moon exhibit synchronous rotation. In this paper we present evidence that these synchronously rotating satellite bodies’ axial rotation speed is closely related to the size and the axial rotation speeds of their respective mother bodies. In the satellites that follow a non-synchronous rotation (most of the planets and their satellites) the satellites’ own rotation speed usually dominates. In all these rotational orbital motions, we believe, the axial rotation and gravity collaborate with the resultant centrifugal force, which prevents the satellite bodies from crashing into the mother bodies. We have inferred from the above observations that the axial spin is a fundamental property of matter, akin to gravity, electromagnetism, and strong and weak nuclear forces. This inherent property of matter to spin on its axis is what initiates all celestial body motions and makes such motions perpetual. The lateral motions of stars within the galaxies, are also influenced by the sizes of the stars; the larger the star, the faster it moves radially. Similarly, the larger the spiral galaxy, the faster it rotates on its axis. We extrapolate from these observations that the axial rotational speeds of galaxies affect their motion in space as well, that this is circumferential, and we predict this will also be in the counterclockwise direction. This lateral movement of the galaxies will give the appearance of the whole universe spinning on its axis.
