GEOTHERMAL ENERGY, DEEP HOLES, AND TECHNOLOGY

This is an important story, one which bears close watching in my opinion.  It was spotted and shared by V.T., a frequent contributor of "bloggable articles" here, and it concerns the plans of a geothermal energy company to use a new technology to burrow farther into the Earth than ever before:

That cannot end well! Company plans to dig World’s deepest hole to unleash boundless energy

The company, as noted in the article, is called Quaise, but it's the technology itself that intrigues me, and makes me wonder if behind the publicly-stated quest for more geothermal energy, other more hidden functions might be stacked:

Geothermal energy has a low profile compared to other renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and hydro, but Quaise believes it is “at the core of an energy-independent world,” according to the company’s website. This form of energy is among the oldest power sources harnessed by humans, but it only accounts for about 0.4 percent of net energy production in the United States, which is the world’s biggest geothermal producer.

Current geothermal plants are typically built in areas where hot rock is located close to Earth’s surface, such as tectonically active fault lines, which makes it easier to tap our planet’s natural heat and convert into steam-powered electricity. But geothermal energy could play a much bigger role in meeting the world’s energy needs if plants could access the hot rock that is globally available several miles under the planet’s surface.

Quaise, which is a spinoff from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), intends to pioneer this technology using vacuum tubes known as gyrotrons that shoot millimeter-wave light beams, powered by electrons in a strong magnetic field. Using these devices, the company plans to burn almost twice as far into Earth as the deepest holes ever made, such as Russia’s Kola Superdeep Borehole or Qatar’s Al Shaheen oil well, both of which extend for about 7.5 miles.

Gyrotrons are powerful enough to heat plasma in nuclear fusion experiments, making them an ideal tool to probe unprecedented depths of some 12 miles, where subterranean rocks roil at temperatures of about 500°C (930°F). Water pumped into this searing environment would instantly vaporize as steam that could be efficiently converted to electricity.

Araque and his team at Quaise plan to funnel their seed money into prototype technologies within the next few years. By 2028, the company aspires to retrofit coal-fueled power plants into geothermal energy hotspots. The process of drilling out these super-deep holes would take a few months, but once the setup is complete, they could provide limitless energy to a region for up to a century, according to Araque.

Now, at one level the technology in use here is clear, and the method of generating power from such a deep hole equally clear. But my high octane speculation mind cannot help but wonder if  drilling a lot of such holes will have unintended geophysical results, from an overall cooling of the planet to a potential effect on the interior dynamo of the Earth and on its magnetic field (and I suspect the answer to the basic question of unforeseen consequences is yes, whether or not my specific questions turn out to be true or not).

But those concerns are not why this article really intrigues me. What intrigues me is the capability of the technology to bore deeply into the planet, and do so in such a way as to leave a nice neat round hole.  Remember the Guatemala sink hole of 2010?

Guatemala Sinkhole Created by Humans, Not Nature

At the time, when people were trying to explain the sudden appearance of this large "sink hole", I offered my high octane speculation that (1) it was man-made, (2) was not a "sink hole" in any conventional sense, and (3) appeared to be the product of a sophisticated boring technology, perhaps even space based. (See my blog:

THE SPACE OPERA CONTINUES: MORE METEORS AND ASTEROIDS TO WORRY ABOUT ...

The National Geographic article, you'll note, offers up a "burst sewer pipe" and underground erosion as the explanation for the nearly perfectly round hole:

A burst sewer pipe or storm drain probably hollowed out the underground cavity that allowed the chasm to form, according to Sam Bonis, a geologist at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire, who is currently living in Guatemala City (map).

The Guatemala City sinkhole, estimated to be 60 feet (18 meters) wide and 300 feet (100 meters) deep, appears to have been triggered by the deluge from tropical storm Agatha.

But the cavity formed in the first place because the city—and its underground infrastructure—were built in a region where the first few hundred meters of ground are mostly made up of a material called pumice fill, deposited during past volcanic eruptions.

Ok. I can buy the pumice fill explanation. But a "sink hole" of that size, depth, and perfect shape, gives me difficulties.

It still looks bored out to me.

And now, finally, with this article, we have an admission that such a technology actually exists.

The question is, can it be effectively based in space?  And while we're at it, consider its use on the Moon, or to go looking for things deeply underground...

See you on the flip side...

    Earth core as scientists figured out lately , is in superionic state ( both liquid and solid at the same time) which we know near nothing about. Out of around 200 magnetic fenomena we do understand about half of them. So, I wonder how all that drilling going to affect overall energetic balance of our planet which is already disturbed through weather modification technologies which includes link between Earth and Sun magnetosphere and let’s not forget about that maniacal fusion reactor which going to have magnetic containment 280 000 times stronger than our planet magnetic field…It doesn’t look good folks.

      Once you get into exotic states of elements the properties of those elements can have new unexpected phenomenon. Like super conducting, magnetism with normally nonmagnetic elements, superfluidity, and who knows what else. These are just new guesses of what the core may be like and how it’s magnetic. In truth they have no way of knowing if what is truely there can even be classified as elements anymore. It may be some sort of new substance from which all elements could be derived from. Like a super philosopher’s stone whose substance can decay into any atomic element in the periodic table after escaping the core bounds.

    Mars……It is interesting to note that James, of World News Today, has been finding photos given to us by NASA claiming to be of Mars, that are actually places here on Earth given the red hue that we are told is Mars. ???

    What else has NASA lied to us about?!! Vibes of Cosmos is a very interesting website, as is “Divergent”. Seems our planet is made up of the bodies of HUGE dead beings. Roger of Mudfossil Univ. also has some interesting findings!

    Wouldn’t it be nice to step outside of this Fake World we have been living in ?! Our Controllers have kept us in ignorance for too many centuries! Those who start thinking Outside The Box are persecuted & ridiculed. We should be taught from birth to Question Everything!!! 😉

    For what it’s worth and it’s all related:
    Some wise person sent this across my desk yesterday.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NFngc_8RiVc
    (47367) Former top Pentagon advisor Col. Doug Macgregor on Russia-Ukraine war – YouTube

    Funny watching Blumenthal and Mate clarify with MacGregor.
    B & M are as far left as anyone has ever gotten – but honest.
    MacGregor is as far right – first I’ve heard of him.
    Credentials and assessments sound legit.
    Nice quick clash over Vietnam & US, Marxism and Socialism.

    Couple new possibilities.
    Other ideas heard elsewhere confirmed.
    Everything Ritter described is more likely true now.

    Putin’s popularity at home has risen – over 70% last check.
    Russia is definitely not Iraq.

    Casualties are minimal – 2k for a 200k force in hostile area is impressively small.
    Curious what Azov’s have and will suffer.
    Confident we’ll never get a clue.
    They could have done Ukraine the way US did Iraq, Afghanistan & all.
    Could have bombed for weeks and walked in with few or no casualties.

    Pincer tactic on Donbas all the way to Kiev looks successful.
    Russian forces look more effective than they did in Syria.

    Oliver Stone has another doc out I haven’t seen.

    (47449) 1 Revealing Ukraine 2019, Documentary by Oliver Stone – YouTube

    The only way Neocons hold power domestically is so brazenly criminal that public backlash would be beyond pale.
    Neocons own Clinton/Bush/Obama/Biden regimes.
    Trump may or may not be outside Neocon control.
    Trumps exploitation of Bolton against Bolton’s will over Venezuela was epic.
    Trumpers like DeSantis do seem outside Neocon control.

    Neocons may just go all the way to gulags and open democide to hold power.
    WEF, WHO, Davos and UN clearly want them to.
    Putin may be in bed with Davos yet in spite of WEF memory holing him.

    Evidence of Putin’s careful handling of Ukraine and Azov’s is everywhere, silent and growing more obvious.
    Refugees left because of Azov’s and conscription of 18 to 60 yr old males more than fear of Russia.
    Weapons handed out to civilians went to criminal gangs and Azovs.
    US weapons shipped to Azov’s will probably be taken by Russians.
    Putin is sure to remember Mujahadeen stingers from Carter Reagan used against Russia.
    And that they kept them and became Al CIA Da with all those weapons later.

    Putin may have to shell Mariupol to rubble since Azov’s are not leaving.
    That will be bad since Azov’s are stopping and sniping at refugees trying to run.
    Similar can happen in Kiev and Karkhiv but don’t need to.

    Zelenskyy is Biden’s puppet – esp with Kolomoisky gone.
    Soros and Omidyar fingerprints are everywhere.
    Kolomoisky owned Azov’s and Zelenskyy.
    Brilliant move using Jewish front man comic to cover for nazi’s.

    This explains Lavrov’s comments few years ago.
    Lavrov splained US is no longer “agreement capable.”
    Lavrov declared it was the nazi’s in DC who were Russia’s problem, not the ones in Ukraine.

    Damage to US & EU will be far worse than to Russia and Ukraine – and longer lasting.
    R & U will likely improve and flourish after excluding NATO trained Azov’s from Donbas.
    Zero debt, plentiful resources and strong well tuned expanding military.
    Resource flow will open while domestic population will be allowed to rebuild without genocides.
    EU countries who can leave EU and work with Russia will grow as well.

    MI5 and MI6 seem married to Neocons and Biden/Clinton for at least 10 years.
    Most likely all parties are desperate to cover up corruption.
    Notable that zero clients of the most powerful pedophile network ever prosecuted were ever tried.

    Clinton Fdtn stole more wealth in Ukraine than they did in Haiti.
    (Clintons made their first 10’s maybe 100’s of billions in Haiti)
    The desperation to cover corruption splains Vindman, Schiff, Bush, Pelosi, Podesta, Cheney, Clinton et al stupider and stupider tactics at home and abroad.
    Increasingly obvious frauds everywhere – election, censorship, claims of treason, BLM riots, medical false flags, treaty violations, forced suicidal wars, pharma, faked chem attacks, false flag poisonings of politicians and spies.

    Had not considered Putin profited from Trump impeachment until now.
    Biden et al have only improved Putin’s power at home.
    US collapse looks harder than USSR in 90’s and UK in 1940’s.

      Jason, while soul-seeding his team, has less headache, when he fixates his compass on the sundial. After all, marines are navigators by default.

      Sundial is compass as timekeeper, measuring day, year and lifespan. Using peak of tides as trigger points, is mapping man, as a tactical vehicle.

      By seven seals, man grows physically, emotionally and mentally into an ego, that breaks physically, emotionally and mentally, into spirit.

      A flesh suit is a dressed up skeleton, a vessel, that may host a seeded soul.

    Anyone familiar with the movie A Crack in the Earth starred Dana Andrews in came out in the 1960s. Its premise was using heat from the Earth’s interior to power human energy needs. It doesn’t end well.



  7. Richard on March 18, 2022 at 7:35 pm

    That (almost) touched up roundness of that terrestrial sinkhole is certainly eye catching. If it were on Mars it might have looked like one of those Ancient craters on Mars that form a triangular arrangement.

    New Google mapping is adding craters, likely from more recent meteor strikes, that were not there before. One has been watching Mars and those Mon’s for years ever since Google made it possible on their Google Earth program. Google Earth may not show an infrared or ground penetrating RADAR image (yet) like some research facilities do, to include NASA, but those they do show remain striking as do their grid arrangement – around 115 degrees west longitude on the Martian equator. That Guatemala City sinkhole has terrestrial grid coordinates, too. Looks like it sits right on the corner of a major fracture zone that extends out into the Caribbean Sea forming the Cayman Trench where the Cayman Islands sit alongside and above.

    There are several volcanoes in the region that have been actively spewing ash with ash alerts for airlines.

    The arrangements on Mars of the four Mons’ (Olympus, Pavonis, Arsia, and Ascraeus) that suggest an artificial placement, possibly construction even bore holes. They’re not just pock marked roundish, they’re very circular. Very round as if they had direct drilling into the planet’s surface as if some sort of tap at designated coordinates for purpose. Their location on and around the equatorial grid fits almost exactly. Their triangular arrangement, aside from Pavonis Mons, are nearly equidistant from each other where Pavonis seems to be the right-angle bisector in that triangular formation that is on a point on the Martian equator. Those are several coincidences that stand out really well to this viewer. One’s guess? . . It’s a former tripod position of some design and/or bore tap into the Martian surface that interacted with the planet’s inner thermal energies at one time. Probably when they were intact, and the planet looked much different. Maybe Mars is what happens when ‘geo-engineering’ for energy needs goes badly.

    From another perspective, Mars shares essentially the same celestial skies as present-day earth. Given how several mythical representations suggest Mars had more of an influence on the terrestrial Ancients, it seems a reasonable hypothesis to pursue in that there was a more interactive planetary past than what the history books proclaim must have been. The geometry on Mars is striking in how those Mons’ are nearly perfectly circular volcanic craters, their triangular arrangement nearly geometrically symmetrical, and their placement at the equatorial grid line are unique in how it seems to relate to celestial patterns above Mars skies of the past as well as below, on present day planet earth.

    The research continues because there’s an itch that suggests there’s far more that is missing on both worlds.



    • Mejkai on March 19, 2022 at 3:51 pm

      Your comment about the fracture reminded me of something that crossed my mind a couple of weeks ago. My vision was that they’re (NWO bad guys) finally going to sink California. This here doomsday bore could first do some preliminary perforating not to leave anything to chance, then you might target a (small?) nuke in the area, make it look like someone else launched it etc. and voilà

      Why CA? Two reasons come to mind: 1) the idea of California sinking into the ocean as a result of an earthquake has been programmed into our minds for decades, and if the endgame’s on, now would be a good time to saw it off if that’s what you’ve been planning; 2) ‘drowning the Sun/Son’ (cf. baptising in Christianity), I remember having read somewhere, is a major thing in occult thematic as a symbol of and maybe also as a rite at the ending of an era. Isn’t California nicknamed something like “The Sun State”?

      I wish I’m way off.



  8. Westcoaster on March 18, 2022 at 6:54 pm

    What irks me about this idea is we still haven’t bridged the gap between an energy source and how it converts to electricity. This plan uses steam which would be used for kinetic motion, turning generators to produce electric power.
    We jumped that gap with electrons a long time ago when we swapped vacuum tubes for transistors and the integrated circuit.
    And for the bonus round, looks like this plan reverts back to using vacuum tubes too!

    Really? from the article,” The discovery of ice on the Moon has enormous implications for the potential return of humans to the Moon’s surface and the establishment of a permanent lunar station.” Ummm are we being told something by accident or is it predictive programming? Oh perhaps in reference to Neil Armstrong’s adventure…

    Here “we” go again?
    “The future is here – it’s just not evenly distributed.”
    -William Gibson, sci-fi writer[although, the internet doesn’t cotton to it]
    At this site many know of the Breakaway Civilization concept[more than one, two, three, … ?]; that there exits organizations that possess “advance” technologies, many of which were researched and discovered long ago.

    3-D technology, is one[IMO]; although there are many others.
    They’re released because the “Deep State” is ready to use them in their latest plans for space, power, control, and more money[possibly paying tribute, to God knows who/what/it]
    This “new” technology, in quest for geothermo power, has the signature of “Breakaway” buried deep w/in in information/knowledge infrastructure[IMO].

    So this “first” is a “public” first.
    Meaning, the “Breakaway” has been there, done that[IMO].

    Oh? MIT? Deep w/in the Deep State’s information knowledge infrastructure w/history[known, and “unknown” to prove it. MIT tell me, highly classified territory is being covered up, and the “public” version has been scrubbed clean – for TV sided appearances[reference to a used car’s w/un-wrecked side; being shown on TV for “special” price].

    Great? Even references the old vacuum tube, turned transistor, turned chip, turned quantum?. Again, vacuum scrubbed for the “public eye”?
    The seed money in these will be a: Deep State GMO-style seed money, w/a certain technological-bent provenance[evil intension]

    No doubt, space-based technology is making it Earthly audition.
    Whether “they” are planning another global crisis, or a ne stacked function crisis, or what ever their wicked minds have imagine; it will not be in Earth’s interest – that much “we” know[IMO].

  11. InfiniteRUs on March 18, 2022 at 9:15 am

    Could be a way to replace the need for nuclear power plants or new and unexpected way to mine for diamonds. One of the theories for how Kimberlite pipes bearing diamonds to the surface is somehow water penetrated rapidly in a similar region in the Earth depths and created a giant steam explosion that blew out high into the Earth atmosphere And then molten material from deep in the Earth rose and filled in the hole and cooled. The diamonds in such pipes usually come out in the initial blast and are found only on the surface of such geological features. So I would pick a spot to drill that is most likely to have diamonds. That way I win if it works and is safe or if the worst happens.

    We know there are large round holes and tunnels on the Moon. Plus caverns the size of towns. All due to volcanism and lava flows millions of years ago.

    Question: is the Moon already colonized by a aliens?
    No one on Earth has yet proven that it is not already colonized (the hypothesis still stands) and the Chinese are sniffing around the Far Side of the Moon with their Chang’e 5 rover. Plus, there was the DOD Clementine Mission and most of their thousands of hires images taken of the Moon’s surface still remain classified.

      craters and so-called lava tubes on the Moon don’t add up using the standard model. Considering that asteroid strikes generally come in on slanting trajectories, then how come most all craters are round, circular? Wouldn’t they mostly be side-swipes with splash out irregular shapes?
      Introduce yourself to the Electric Universe. Here’s a start:
      Cosmic Lightning On the Moon
      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUk3MuDEyv0&t=15s
      In fact, all over the moons and visible on Mars are craters lined up in little chains, craters on the rims of other craters, and nearly ALL are circular.
      This is how electrical machining produces craters, NOT asteroids and meteors.
      The lava tube hypothesis doesn’t work out either, they are far too long and even run uphill on the Moon.
      Today’s cosmology is bad and getting worse deus-ex-machina cosmology, ignoring the electrical nature of the vast filaments seen everywhere on every scale , the mass of dust is ignored, and made up fudge factors like black holes, dark energy and matter, are added in to balance the books.
      Earth has been subject to interplanetary plasmasphere interactions leading to massive earthquakes, migrations, not millions of years ago but thousands, in human memory and recorded in myths. Interactions with Mars and Moon likely ended the Bronze Age and collapsed those civilizations. Story of Troy.
      All around the Mediterranean coastal cities were wiped out by tsunami, cities toppled and stone walls and buildings toppled like some child swatting his Legos. In Tanis Egypt and elsewhere the stones are scorched black, and you see melted granite. Invading armies do not produce this effect.
      I’m surprised the EU doesn’t get more play here for vast interplanetary events charging the earth and discharging in cosmic thunderbolts could dovetail nicely into the Giza death star thesis.

    In Doctor Who, the land-dwelling Silurians, a reptile species, live deep underground.

    Giant sinkholes can have been caused, by Silurian escape pods, fleeing globalist slavery.

    Unsurprisingly, Silurians don’t want to share bunker, with globalist banksters underground.
