Expanding Earth & Misplaced Plasma Theory

One of the problems facing Earth Expansion Theory (EET) is the absence of a plausible physical mechanism to produce expansion. The largest obstacle the EET’s have is countering the mechanism of gravitational accretion that the gravity model assumes to occur inside planets and stars. The proposed solution has been to invoke mass formation at the core but how that is achieved is not easily explained.

All of the various theories proposed to explain EET involve the addition of ad hoc extras compatible with gravitational accretion. Which means that gravitational accretion is not questioned but rather than, maybe, something else is being missed. The latest ad hoc factor involves plasma theory where it is proposed that the solar wind, comprised of protons and electrons, enters the earth system via the polar regions and travels towards the core where new matter/mass is formed.  This explanation was published in Issue 126, December, 2016 of AIG NEWS, pages 39-42, available here. The theory has some problems.

The first problem is the use of the idea of magnetically charged electrons and protons. No such things. Protons and electrons are electrically charged particles of varying energy states. They generate magnetic fields when in motion.

It is then proposed that these magnetically charged particles are attracted by conduction to the strongly magnetic core-mantle region of the Earth by entering the polar auroral zones and lower terrestrial layers as well as via lighting strikes during electrical storms.  Solar protons also reach the Earth’s surface via rain, with corresponding emission of electrons in the opposite direction.

Except that protons and electrons are not able to pass, in general, through matter in the solid state with the exception that electrons can travel through conductive solid metals. In actual fact protons and electrons pass through the earth-system via the magneto and ionospheres, with most of the motion restricted to the non-solid layers of the Earth including the oceans, atmosphere and ionosphere. The bulk of the solar wind is constrained to the ionosphere since the atmosphere itself is highly resistive and impedes  the simple passage of charged particles.

Pollack has shown that the oceans, which comprise 70% of the Earth’s surface, emit large quantities of protons at daybreak which then travel laterally, under the effect of horizontal electric fields, to produce winds etc.. The EET solar protons would thus become entrapped into this system and diverted from their assumed path to the core-mantle region.

Explosive volcanic eruptions are primarily of matter in the plasma state accompanied by spectactular lightning displays.  This behaviour seems to be caused by highly electropositive magma interacting with a negative earth surface charge,

It is not permissible to invoke matter creation at the core since creationism is not allowed in any scientific explanation, so the EET solar wind fueled mechanism is implausible. Is there an alternative explanation? Yes, that planets are the result of prolonged plasma Z-Pinch mechanisms in which matter, protons and electrons, are compressed into high density forms of matter that then, after the forcing plasma current wanes, start to equilibrate to lower density minerals resulting in volumetric expansion of the planet. Gravity is irrelevant in this scenario, much as it is irrelevant in the plasma universe model, though it is necessary for political correctness to incorporate it into the theory.

EET has one fundamental obstacle facing it – gravitational accretion. Until that mechanism is falsified, EET will be restricted to making ad hoc adjustments to the ruling gravitational only paradigm. But if the Universe is electrical, and gravity an electrical effect, then earth expansion becomes explicable.

About Louis Hissink

Retired diamond exploration geologist. I spent my professional life looking for mineral deposits, found some, and also located a number of kimberlites in NSW and Western Australia. Exploration geology is the closest one can get to practicing the scientific method, mineral exploration always being concerned with finding anomalous geophysical or geochemical data, framing a model and explanation for the anomaly and then testing it with drilling or excavation. All scientific theories are ultimately false since they invariably involved explaining something with incomplete extant knowledge. Since no one is omniscient or knows everything, so too scientific theories which are solely limited to existing knowledge. Because the future always yields new data, scientific theories must change to be compatible with the new data. Thus a true scientist is never in love with any particular theory, always knowing that when the facts change, so too must he/she change their minds.
