The difference is that my paper was written in 1996. A lot of new information has become available since then, so go with the info in the daniel papers, as that is based on the most current RS2 research.
After the supernova, all matter in the low speed (1-x) range would be aggregated by larger bodies through gravitation and not make a moon on their own. Fragments from the core will form planets and moons, and some of those moons could take up orbit around larger moons (asteroids orbiting each other) or planets. But since the orbital position is based on the net inverse speed, the smaller fragments will tend to be thrown very far out, most likely well outside of the larger, planetary fragments. So there aren't any viable moon-sized pieces in the solar system that could form planetary moons. (Unless someone went out and grabbed one of those moon-sized core fragments from way, way out and brought it in to the solar system, which is the basis of Immanuel Velikovsky's "wandering planet" work.)

The early planets had no moons. It is a reasonable conclusion, as during the post-supernova aggregation phase, any moons close enough to a planet would be sucked in and add to the planet’s mass. The moons are a later stage of solar system formation, a product of outer planet nova activity, or someone dropping them off.
Just wondering if there is a difference between his remarks concerning inner planets and your explanation.
'The outer planets will have a large number of moons, whereas the inner planets will tend to have few to none.'
Thanks, You guys are cool.

I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed 'Our Senseless Toil'. First time to read this book and it was very exciting. I'm starting to see the direction. Thank you for sharing.

I believe it was written for his daughter, to explain the concept of dimensions, back in Victorian times.

I was intrique with the amount of detail that went into the classification and history of the Flatland society.
Is this solely the creation of the author, reflection of his current times, or was another template used?
