The concept of the solar-system as a timeline, or sequence, and of the outer planets as the gas shrouds gathered around the rock cores of former, contracted Earths, suggests to me that these small, rocky and icy bodies of the Kuiper Belt and The Oort Cloud are actually the fragmented remains of the rock cores of Earths that went before the previous six.
The remains of the previous six are still visible to us, but the remains of the rest now lie outside our field of vision, except when their elliptical orbits bring them close to the sun and they become briefly visible as comets.

These are the Invisible Earths.
