    why doesn't the debris just float around the planet everywhere? how and why does it form a ring?

    This is because all celestial bodies are spherical in shape and you can't see the hidden flow lines of magnetic force or aether flow. Aether flows into all celestial bodies in a circular pathway outside of the solid body. This positive and negative bipolar action which is even on both sides and meets in the middle where matter is condensed from the aether particles. Thus, atoms, planets, solar systems and galaxies all have a flat or disc shape. You can see this more clearly in large galaxies where aether jets shoot out at right angles to the galactic rotation. The aether jets eventually come back round in a circular motion to re-condense and become matter again when they meet in the centre disc area.

    Its complicted,  so this is way over simplified.   If you imagine a moonlet orbiting above ('north of') the plane of the rings there is more 'stuff' pullling it 'south' towards the rings than there is stuff pulling it pole-wards 'north' away from the rings.  Thus a spinning shell slowly flattens out perpendicular to the axis of rotation...  the same effect put all the planets in the 'ecliptic' plane around the sun by flattening the spinning nebula of gas and dust that the solar system formed from.

    The universe doesn't do pulling. Its an illusion. The universe can only push.

    We don't know for sure yet, but the prevailing theory is that the rings are the remnants of a moon that orbited too close to Saturn and eventually collided with it. We know that the rings have a large amount of ice. The best explanation so far is that, as the moon got closer and closer to Saturn, its outer, icy layers were stripped off and the rest of it crashed into the planet.

    i have taken then liberty of bolding the parts of your post that are made up.

    There’s two parts to this. Orbital Debris flattens into a disc due to the conservation of angular momentum. Think of spinning Pizza dough! It’s the same principle. The second part of this is why rings?: this is most likely due to all the gravitational interactions with different moons and Saturn, these perturb some areas of the rings more than others: Shepard moons is a good term to google if you’re interested.

    As you should be able to understand, spinning objects are subjects to similar types of forces and laws that relate to spinning.

    as you should also know, we were talking about Saturn’s rings, not the universe as a whole.
