I don't know Phage...
While the chart does appear to show no connection between increases in solar activity and earthquakes, it appears there may be a connection with
decreases in solar activity and earthquakes.
I made some red arrows that show that every time solar activity was at it's minimum, earthquakes increased:
With one of my magnetic theories I think I can explain how this could be possible. It's quite simple really, you just have to understand how basic
The Sun is a huge magnet, and the Earth is also a huge magnet. When magnets are near each other they share their magnetic force with each other. A
change of magnetic force in one magnet will effect the magnetic field of the other magnet. If one magnet got stronger or weaker, the other magnet
would too also get slightly stronger or weaker because they share their magnetic force with each other, from the inside out, because magnetic force
passes through all matter.
The crust of the Earth itself is very magnetic because it contains enormous amounts of various ferromagnetic materials. Every atom counts.... and we
all know if we stick a magnet in the dirt you will pull up ferromagnetic elements. The magnetic force coming from the core of Earth magnetizes all of
the ferromagnetic materials in Earths crust and slightly attracts or repels to a certain degree. Any small magnetic change in the core of Earth will
effect the crust of Earth by attracting or repelling certain land masses which then stresses their fault lines.
This could mean an increase OR decrease in the Sun's magnetic field, or Earth's magnetic field, could effect Earth in some way or another.
This is off topic a bit but...
I also share a theory with another fine fellow named Edward Leedskalnin who believes most mountain ranges were created by the magnetic flux lines
coming from the core of Earth. He said an experiment would be to spin a magnet on a motor, and hold a piece of paper over it with iron fragments
sprinkled on the paper. The spinning magnetic force creates stationary ridges and mountains with the iron fragments. Edward Leedskalnin believes this
is how Earth's ridges and mountains get/got their shape.
Basically, a good portion of the Earths crust is magnetic, and any small changes in Earths magnetic field will effect the crust. Things that can
change Earths magnetic field range from Sun changes, to planetary alignments, and variation in Earths rotation, and even changes in Earths core
Also, hot and cold temperatures effect the strength of magnets. The colder the magnet, the stronger the magnet. The hotter the magnet, the weaker the
magnet (Curie Point). I think temperature changes could have effects on Earth's magnetic field.
You could probably even go further and say the Earth's magnetic poles are related to the temperature of Earth's North and South poles. The coldness
of the North and South poles probably strengthens the magnetic poles of Earth, keeping it in position. This is why I look at pole shifts differently
Anyway......I think Ive said enough for now.
