Oh, I get it...lesssee -- the disappearance of Earth reduces the mass in the total of orbits 1, 2 and 3 and therefore the outerplanets arer inclined to accelerate outward, but they ar elimited by the order-of-magnitude-difference of the star Sol's attractive force so they then begin acceleratin inward; although their outward acceleration was insifficient to escape the attraction of Sol, their inward acceleration is AIDED by Sol so they are more than able to slip inward in spite of their continuing outer-bound acceleration from centripetal momentum, and thus find their way heading for the Sun in spite of the fact that there is less total attraction in the neighborhood than there uised to be. Right?? But there is still a vector of deflection left over fromt heir iearlier orbit which just happens to find its own natural harmonic balance at the next orbit inward, a point at which the deflection establishes outward force exactly balanced by the attractive force combinations of Sol and planets nearer to it than (x), the planet under consideration. PLanet X therefore established a new rotational path and a new orbital path and a new series of adventures begins.
