EARTH’S SECRET UNDERGROUND RESERVOIR OF WATER… MAYBE.

Many of you sent this article to me, and after reading it, I can see why. Earth, it seems, may have such an abundance of water between layers of the mantle that the amount of water would exceed the world’s oceans combined:

Earth Has a Secret Reservoir of Water say Scientists

Such a model of interior geophysics will, of course, be seized upon by a certain kind of fundamentalist as a confirmation of their canonical texts, which, in a loose sense, it is, for it is confirmation – albeit slight, we’ll get back to that in a moment – of their model, including “ringwoodite,” provided of course that the story is true, which we assume it to be for the sake of our high octane speculations here. But the idea of confirming an entire model on the basis of a small and essentially worthless brown diamond is…well, stretching the evidence. We have no idea if the small amount of ringwoodite comes from a local region, or is representative of a planetary wide phenomenon. What would be needed for confirmation of the model is more such finds, across a dispersed area of the planetary surface.

But the find does have certain implications for other theories, besides ancient texts or modern planetary geophysics. It gives, for example, a new perspective to Charles Hapgood – of Maps of the Ancient Sea Kings fame – and his theory of “crustal displacement,” a theory that was even endorsed by Albert Einstein(a theory to which I do not subscribe).

But there may be something significant here for exo-planetary geophysics as well, assuming the phenomenon to me proper to solid celestial bodies, particularly those that are, or were thought to be,  water-bearing or oceanic at some point in their history…

…such as Mars. Geological features on Mars show evidence of flowing water, or flowing liquid of some sort, and it is known that one of the polar ice caps on Mars has frozen water-ice.  Much current thinking on human expeditions and eventual settlement of that planet involve exploiting Mars’ indigenous water to support the population, raise food, and so on, a prospect greatly expanded if the technology could be developed to recover such mantle water if the phenomenon were extended to the interior of Mars, which may or may not be confirmed pending further geophysical study of that planet.

In any case, the fact remains that if further confirmation of the model can be obtained on Earth, it will ultimately stand as a confirmation of those ancient texts and legends that speak of the waters under the Earth… and another indicator that those texts should not be dismissed as the non-scientific products of a bygone age. And the danger equally lurks that the wild and radical will take them as confirmation of all that those texts says and mandate, which, of course, it is not.

See you on the flip side…

KRISPY KREME’S INCREDIBLE MARTIAN ADVENTURE

No two weeks’ worth of blog scheduling, especially when we’ve been having fun exploring the bizarre developments in science and technology that we have the previous week, would be complete without talking about that strange rock on Mars that in one picture taken by NASA, wasn’t there, and then, later, suddenly was there. Indeed, so[More...]

RUSSIA: TURN ASTEROIDS INTO SPACESHIPS

What to do with all those asteroids after we get done shooting at them with Japanese space cannon, hauling them to lunar orbit and mining them at our newly established corporate branches on the newly subdivided properties on the Moon? According to this idea, the always-clever Russians are proposing that we simply turn them into[More...]

INDIA, MARS, AND A SABOTAGED SPACE PROGRAM?

This intriguing and suggestive article was sent to me by Mr. K.B., an Indian, and for those who have been tracking the shenanigans in space, this is disturbing at so many levels, if true. The shenanigans in space, let us recall, are almost too numerous to mention. We have – and this is just the short[More...]

THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO “HMMM…” : DR CRAIG VENTER ON THE 3d PRINTING OF MARTIANS…

This has been a week for “things that make you go ‘hmmm….’”. Once again, so many of you sent me articles on this latest 3d-printing meme that I simply cannot thank all of you individually, but not to comment about it would, again, be a dereliction. It would be a dereliction because I’ve been following[More...]

THE 3D PRINTING/TRANSHUMANIST SCRAPBOOK: SPACE, MARS, DEFENSE, AND CUNEIFORM TABLETS

It’s happening so fast that it is difficult, if not impossible, to keep up with all that is being written about 3D Printing these days, but in a certain sense, one may take that as a bit of corroboration that the phenomenon itself – which has been around for a while – is being deliberately promoted[More...]

MARS, 3-D PRINTING, AND UNUSUAL ADMISSIONS

Space is in the news once again, and may thanks to the many people for sending me these and other articles… While I do not intend much detailed commentary here(you’ll have to wait for Covert Wars and the Clash of Civilizations for that), I suspect that readers here will connect the dots for themselves. First,[More...]

TIDBIT: MARS ORBITER AND THE ANCIENT MARTIAN MEGAFLOOD

This may interest some of you… In my Cosmic War, and on several interviews on that subject on my friend George Ann Hughs’ The Byte Show, I have speculated that the best evidence in the solar system for a planetary-wide flood such as many believe the Bible and other ancient manuscripts and traditions describe is not on[More...]

TIDBIT: JUST WHEN YOU THOUGHT ALL THE STRANGE STUFF ON MARS WAS JUST A TRICK OF LIGHT AND SHADOW…

Now, just when you thought all that talk about strange anomalous artificial-looking “stuff’ on Mars had been emptied(we would argue, unsuccessfully), NASA’s Mars Curiosity rover takes this little picture (and our thanks to Ms. P.H. for sharing this with us): NASA’s Mars Curiosity’s “Shiny Little Thing”; the anomaly is visible toward the top center of[More...]

TIDBIT: ANOTHER STRANGE THING ON THE SURFACE OF MARS

They’re already calling this a flower, but it doesn’t look like one to me. But anyway, itis a strange looking little “something”: NASA’s Curiosity rover finds ‘flower’ on surface of Mars
