It is clear some people have misinterpreted what others are trying to explain. So I have taken some time to create a few images to explain what I
believe is happening. I am not gauranteeing this is 100% proof, as that is impossible unless further evidence comes to light.
I am putting this forward as a likely
explanation for the observed phenomena, explaining the logic behind why I believe this to be so. I will
also try to explain some of the common misconceptions arising in this thread.
To start off, I think everyone should click on this link here.
This is showing the
Millenium Plus ROV in action. You can see how nimble it is in the water, as it uses multiple thrusters to provide adequate force to control the ROV's
movement. For specifications, find the link in my earlier post (click "thread" at the bottom of this post to find my previous posts.)
To start off, I believe the ROV is not
resting on the sea floor. If it was, you would see no movement of the sea floor whatsoever, as the ROV
would be connected to it, like my previous elevator analogy.
You can see at 1:03 the arm of the ROV is moving on it's own power. Note that this is not the camera panning. The camera remains fixed stationary to
the front of the ROV, as you can see by the arm on the right.
At 1:11, you can see the arm on the left touch the seafloor, sending up a small 'puff' of silt, which wafts in front of the camera slightly.
After a period of some 'enthusiastic' commentary telling you what you are about to see, it appears the sea floor rises in the field of vision. This
occurs at 1:30, and is what some people are calling a "bulge" in the sea floor. However, I believe it could be explained as a mere tilting of the
This movement may have been done intentionally to 'push' the arm further into the ground, by creating a torque with the thrusters. But as there is
no information regarding the reasons for doing this, it is merely an assumption, so I won't try to claim exactly why this happened.
As the angle of the ROV (and consequently, the camera) changes, you can even see a couple of specs of silt in the light drifting with the currents.
These appear to drift up at the same time as the sea floor does, indicating the entire field of vision is changing. This movement causes a bit more
disturbance to the silt on the sea floor, causing more billowing clouds to enter the field of vision.
It holds this position for approx 15 seconds, until at 1:45, the thrusters are applied, causing the ROV to level out at a faster speed than when it
This causes the illusion of the sea floor dropping quickly. It also causes a large amount of disturbance to the silt, causing darker billowing clouds
to enter the field of vision. The ROV then makes a slight rotation to the right, then rotates even further to the left, bring into view a cable/pipe
of some kind. This can be seen by watching the artificial compass at the top, showing the ROV changing it's orientation.
As the ROV is changing it's attitude, as opposed to it's depth, there will be no clear change in the depth and alt readings, other than minor
I hope this is an adequate explanation for those who are willing to accept that this might not be a dramatic event after all. Sadly, I think there are
those who will dismiss this altogether, as it doesn't agree with the 'conspiracy' speculation rampant in this thread. This is ATS, after all
I don't believe BP are a trustworthy corporation, but that doesn't mean I will blindly accept the word of anyone who claims there is some kind of
major event taking place. If you continue to believe the theory that this is some kind of undocumented supernatural event, please at least try to
explain why you have come to conclude this. Preferably without having to bring out the "disinfo" taunts to those who disagree with you.
I have made an effort to show you my point of view without being derogatory or insulting, and I encourage you to do the same if you share a different
point of view. That is all.
