Forests Frozen In Time
Science Frontiers (#51) ^ | May-Jun 1987 | William R. Corliss

Posted on 01/15/2005 3:53:29 PM PST by SunkenCiv

Axel Heiberg Island in the Canadian Arctic is only 700 miles south of the present North Pole. Little grows there today, but there is on these icy shores the remnant of a forest that flourished 45 million years ago, according to conventional geological dating of the strata... So excellent is the preservation of the forest that its wood cuts as if it were recent lumber and burns readily... Even if the earth was warmer 45 million years ago, could a tropical-type forest survive the nearly six months of total darkness at Axel Heiberg Island? ...Also relevant is the discovery, reported below, that wood that floats and burns with ease has been found in Antarctica. This Antarctic wood has been dated at 3 million years.

Just adding this to the GGG catalog, not sending a general distribution. A Blast from the Past, which has relevance to some recent topics. Or somethin'.

To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list. Thanks.
Please FREEPMAIL me if you want on or off the
"Gods, Graves, Glyphs" PING list or GGG weekly digest
-- Archaeology/Anthropology/Ancient Cultures/Artifacts/Antiquities, etc.
Gods, Graves, Glyphs (alpha order)

There is a theory which has been around since the 1880's....that being the Expanding Earth Theory.
Discarded as it could not provide driver mechanism.

Electric Universe offers the driver in form of expulsion birthing....be it from a Variable star like our Sun...or from a phase period in the life of a Brown Dwarf...which Jupiter and Saturn may be.

Binary star sets now appear in voluminous ident galactically.
Close in orbital A.U. set they are found.

Metallicity value [The maturity of a star]..see's the pairing occur..with orbital A.U. set evolving distance wise.

If Earth is born of this path...its to be reasoned that its spherical diameter would evolve over time and would see varied climatic sets.
E.U. also forwards the concept that in previous time...
Earth was in orbital lock set with its parent Saturn....Mars was also part of this system.

The axial tilt is the giveaway of who the parent is.
Mars and Earth have the Saturn 20 something axial tilt.
Venus's axial tilt is 177 and spinning retrograde.
a 180 of Jupiters 3 degree axial tilt.
most of Jupiters plus 60 moons are moving retrograde...another hint that Jupiter has expelled a cored mass.
the moons are more likely afterbirth mass which did not have velocity and plasma sheath to break from Jupiters domain control.

In the expanding earth theory.....water is released from beneath crustal zones.
gradual to catastrophic.
land masses become impinged upon by rising waters and are over topped for time periods...until they recceed or expansion lofts land sets above the water.

the earths layer boundries indicate periods when water dominated the earth.
extinction events also track with this.
it gets technical...as one must consider gallactic radiations and changes to earths electro magnetic/plasma sheath.

radiation triggers DNA patterns with some species mutating on to better things...while others drop out of the system.

Technically....our Suns radiation is very harmfull to life on Earth.
It would kill us if not for the plasma sheath and magnetic dipole system.
Some have pondered how life could get so gargantuan and have long life longevity.
If a planet was in close orbit to a Brown dwarf star...it may not find itself hammered relentlessly by Protons.
The Brown dwarf may provide a more subtle energy flow vs the pounding hammer of a variable star.
Life spans would be longer and climate would be more singular globally.
Luxuriant growth and life forms would be found in polar regions.

Unless our Sun has declined in its outflow...and been this way for long periods of time.
its likely our earths past history speaks of another orbital relation set.
The moon may be another proof of our orbital wander.
Its unlikely that the moon was a collision ..but a capture.

in view of all the above....the question arrises.
what occured to break the Saturine set and see the gas giants move out away from the sun in A.U. set.

A million plus ampheres have been detected flowing down from Earths polar region to the equator on the day side....with similar amphere level detected going back from equator to pole on the nightside.
Our Sun is connected to a gallactic current sheet stretching from the Galaxy centre.
A current sheet flows from our Sun to the outlying A.U. set of its domain...also known as the Suns Heliosphere.

what power could generate such gravametric changes to make the percieved model above occur and transition?

answer....electricity.
which zeniths Gravity by 10 to add a pile of zero's...its not even close.

Gravity model and solar accretion disc will go the way of the dodo.
we are likely in for some shattering revelations in the future....and a rewrite concerning history : )
