Hey Dan ..thanks for the reply
As you have evidenced, and has been theorized, there might be a direct correlation between the solar system's exo-planar motion; and subsequent
weakening of the earth's ionosphere as a function of the galactic "bow shock" effect; and the great extinctions of the earth's past:
It seems probable that at least the Permian and Ordovician extinctions fit in with this pattern..but logically you would then have to ask that, if
this bobbing motion is on a regular 62 million year cycle, then surely there would have to be corresponding mass global events ie.extinctions
60 odd million years on Earth as well, which there is no evidence for.
Anyway this is all heresay ..I'm assuming you're no astrophysicist and neither am I and even cutting-edge physics remains firmly in the skunk works
pile for now..
I did however want to bring your and everyone else's attention to another theory though which is what what I was tentatively referring to in my last
post and that was that Dark Matter might be the possible culprit in all of this.
I paraphrase from a study by a couple of Indian physicists;
""Dense clumps of elusive dark matter in the galaxy may have caused the worst mass extinction in Earth's history 250 million years ago, a team of
Indian physicists says.
Clumps of dark matter passing through Earth would have a direct biological effect and an indirect geological effect, says Afsar Abbas, a professor at
the Institute of Physics in India's eastern city of Bhubaneshwar.
"The result would be two waves of extinction, separated by a few million years," says Abbas, lead author of a paper describing this new model for
mass extinction in Current Science, a journal published by the Indian Academy of Sciences.
Earth has witnessed several mass extinctions of species over the past 600 million years; the worst of these was the Permian event 250 million years
ago that wiped out 90 percent of marine species and 70 percent of life on land.
The cause of the Permian mass extinction has been under debate, with previous theories ranging from severe climatic fluctuations to volcanic eruptions
to an Earth-asteroid impact.
"This hypothesis should motivate experiments to detect biological effects of dark matter."
In the mid-1990s, a Chinese-American team showed that the Permian mass extinction was actually a binary extinction -- an event that involved two
pulses of extinction separated by about 5 million years.
"This new model is interesting because it explains the binary event," says the Chinese team-member Xiangning Yang, now a professor at the department
of Earth sciences at Nanjing University in China.
Abbas says the dark-matter model predicts two extinction pulses. "The first is caused by the direct interaction of dark-matter particles with living
organisms, and the second is caused by long-lasting volcanic eruptions triggered by dark matter at the Earth's core," Abbas says.""
As visible matter is basically draped over a dark matter framework and is pretty much a function of it; it might be a number of ways that this dark
matter interacts with our solar system ie. as the effect of our own Milky Way's dark matter or that of the Sagittarius Dwarf's Dark Matter,
or even the possibility of the near-by Virgo Cluster's shadowy prongs of Dark matter reaching out to us and drawing us towards it?
Who knows..this might be the time when a compound of these dark trysts are taking place and building their stage sets for a grand showing..mwahahaa
Does anyone know where we are in relation to the radial plane of the Milky way? ..and how long before we reach it??
