Jupiter sits outside of the asteroid belt, which itself may very well be a field of particles ejected from a planet which orbited there previously.
That's an entirely different story, however.
, I have delved in to the prospects of Io transferring energy to Jupiter in
a very intimate manner. A Volcano named Prometheus erupts violently enough to produce a plume that can be seen penetrating the satellite's
atmosphere. In turn, Jupiter produces more raw energy than Sol, the Sun itself, partly because of the powerful jolt (400K volt) Io gives it on a
The fact that Jupiter's Great Red Spot and Io still exist is a testament to a higher form of order generally misunderstood by the public, including
myself. Io is close enough to destroy itself within Jupiter's gravitational tug-of-war, and proof lies in how volcanically active it is. The reason
for all of this violent activity is because the satellite itself is pulling itself at the seams... in this case, tectonic plates or something similar
to that effect. Prometheus isnt the only volcano, it's just the most significant. A world as volcanically active as Io survives incomprehensively
against insurmountable odds, mostly coming from the constant bombardment from within the mantle and core thus causing constant volcanic activity.
The Great Red Spot, itself, had it been just a random gigantic storm, would have likely disipated sometime over the last 300 years when it was first
observed by Western astrologers. It is likely to be far older than that, too. Because Jupiter, like Saturn, has wind speeds in excess of 500mph the
GRS would have eventually been dispersed over time as all naturally observed comparisons (such as hurricanes) do.
Here is proof that the "eye" and Io can and do come into adjacent and parallel contact, therefore suggesting a physical relationship.
animation of the GRS
"Jupiter emits continuously streams of charged particles that penetrate deeply into space. Radio emissions of trapped charged particles of the
magnetic field of Jupiter are akin to those launched through space by the stars and received by radio astronomers on Earth. Jupiterís signal emerges
at 50 billion watts. Super-hurricanes and Jovian lightning discharges, found to reach even its satellite Io, are common .
The Great Red Spot in
Jupiterís cover may be the great depression still preserved by cyclonic action. The Spot is a surface as well as cloud phenomenon. The radio noises
have been audited for a few years but the Red Spot has been observed for centuries. During this longer period, on a number of occasions, the Spot has
made dramatic moves. Hence, the rotation of Jupiter has repeatedly suffered marked interruptions even though the force required to change the angular
momentum of such a rotating body (the GRS) is far beyond the force imagined to be able to originate in a stable system."
some mythological background from:
"In the Garabandal vision 69 we have the Virgin mother of the living God closely associated with the ancient symbol of the virgin motherland of
mankind, and with its eastern (oriental) location. The colour red potentially refers to the "red spot" on Jupiter, the "red spot" being the
original "eye of Horus". This "red spot" has also been visualised as the mouth from which the original "Word" of creation was uttered
from which the ancient Egyptians believed that the divine twins Shu and Tefnut (Neptune and Uranus) were born or, more specifically, were spat out. In
Christian Holy Grail mythos, this red spot has been viewed as the bleeding wound of the King, from which issues the Holy Spirit
. On the
equatorial belt of Jupiter are three fixed white spots which form an equilateral triangle, and these appear to be the archetype for the three graces,
the three muses, the three fates, and the three nails by which Jesus the Christ was held to the cross of Calvary. "
The above excerpt is amazing, particularly to me, because I thought it wasn't very well known that the GRS could have a link to Horus and things
past. It also makes the important connection between mythology and the creation of the Solar System, which I believe to be fascinating. Because
Christianty has many many ties and likenesses to Ancient Egyptian mythology and other previous forms of mono and polythiesm, as well as past and
present forms of mythology and religion, this helps to validate the premise and the significance of this not-so-ordinary storm. If so many different
cultures didn't make a hoot about it metaphorically, it wouldn't be so important. Time and time again, these metaphors and stories seem to tell a
piece of the puzzle of life, and they do so again here.
The symbol of the Eye of Horus is uncanny in how similar it is to the GRS.
Just look at this picture and compare it with the image of the GRS above. The key lies in the "eyebrow" area, where there is an apparent likeness to
how Jupiter's massive storm swallows clouds and swirls about. Below the symbol's centre, are two lines with spiraling swirls that are also graphical
representations of nearby clouds being consumed.
Here's a real-time captured animation depicting the GRS in action. You don't have to use much of your imagination to compare the likeness of this
every-day happenstance to a very ancient and significant symbol of the occult.

keep up the good work!)
