Plasma, Solar Outbursts, and the End of the Last Ice Age
The Official Website thereof ^ | prior to July 15, 2011 | Dr. Robert M. Schoch

Posted on 07/15/2011 10:15:16 AM PDT by SunkenCiv

15,000 to 11,000 years ago Earth experienced a series of climatic fluctuations... there was a short cold spell, known as the Younger Dryas, before the final warming and... end of the last ice age. Based on Greenland ice core data, the Younger Dryas began... 10,900 B.C., and its ending... circa 9700 B.C. and may have occurred within an incredible three years... I once hypothesized that comets were responsible. A comet hitting the land or a shallow ocean, or exploding above the land's surface, scattering dust and debris into the atmosphere, would cause global cooling... This pattern fits well with the cooling at 10,900 B.C. and there is evidence of a cometary explosion over North America at this time... comets hitting deep oceans were responsible. A comet might break the thin oceanic crust, releasing heat from the hot magma beneath. Vaporized and displaced water would rain down on Earth, and tsunamis would wash across coastal areas, warming the planet... [But] Plasma hitting the surface of Earth could heat and fuse rock, incinerate flammable materials, melt ice caps, vaporize shallow bodies of water creating an extended deluge of rain, and send the climate into a warming spell. The release of pressure that follows the melting of thousands-of-meters-thick ice sheets can induce earthquakes and even cause hot rock under pressure to melt and erupt to the surface as volcanoes... The plasma event of 9700 B.C. eradicated advanced civilizations and high cultures of the time, and... could be the basis for the nearly universal myth of a Golden Age, a time when beings on Earth had mental abilities far surpassing those of later times. The 9700 B.C. event may be the original basis for the Atlantis legends; the timeframe fits well with Plato's account.

He had me until the part about the humans getting psychic abilities as a result. I couldn’t take the rest of it seriously after that.

Hmmm ~ didn't I tell you guys last Summer that when you use the air bubble treatment for post surgical adjustment the retina you SEE SOMETHING like what your HDTV looks like on a dead channel, or, if you look at that a while, the Easter island writing.

It goes away once the air bubble is absorbed and the inside of your eye is filled with clear water.

There's absolutely no mystery about the origins of that otherwise mysterious semi-script.

"Plasma hitting the surface of Earth could heat and fuse rock, incinerate flammable materials, melt ice caps, vaporize shallow bodies of water creating an extended deluge of rain, and send the climate into a warming spell."

So how would people survive this? If the temperatures were high enough to fuse rock, people would certainly flash-fry, right? One of his linked articles cited examples of vitrified buildings from around the globe, so this was apparently a global event.

You gotta’ see it for yourself. This is the one where they do surgery then you get to look straight down for two weeks while an airbubble they’ve pumped into your eye gets absorbed. The retina doesn’t like to look at stuff through air ~ it wants water. So as the water fills up in your eye you get your vision back. In the meantime you see ronga ronga writing!

One of his recent books was about parapsychology. My wild guess is, his former associate was the primary influence on him in that regard.

So the Easter Islanders were doing prehistoric eye surgery? ;’)

INTERESTING.

THX.

I’d have forced more paragraphing on the OP, though.

Correct and much of the human population was wiped out around that time according to studies, including the complete extinction of many large surface mammals.

I'm not sold on the plasma theory but it would explain much, if physicists can prove phenomenon occurs. Certainly major cataclysmic events occur periodically throughout history and something major seems to have occurred around 12,000 years ago, according to ice core studies. Are we due for another? Will it toggle us into another ice age? Will it again wipe out most of the land mammals and many of us? Lots more questions, but that results from seeking answers.

BTW, I'm sure you know this but for those that don't, it's also a pet theory of Robert Felix.

I have heard people say it looks weird.

An air bubble is needed for a repair of a macular hole or retinal detachment/tears in certain locations.

Patients are instructed to keep their heads in a specific position after surgery so the bubble can push against the area which was repaired.

More likely somebody got a stick in his eye or something and some water drained out. That would allow in air, and the retina recoils from imaging in air. That’s when you see the ranga ranga script.
