I know this thread is old but I've only just discovered it and I think I have something valuable to add. I first heard the story presented in this
book 30 years ago when I was living in Hong Kong (long before the book was published). It's a fabulous explanation of life and evolution, beginning
and ending with our wonderful Earth. It says there is rational reason for faith in the Earth and in Nature, that we are part of something greater,
part of a biological system of development. We can't see it because we're in it - can't see the forest for the trees.
In 1953 Crick and Watson unravelled the double helix structure of DNA, before then we did not know the molecular world existed. We thought that Nature
with all of its interconnected and inter-dependant biological systems, existed only at a planetary level - what we could see all around us. A hundred
years ago we thought the cell was just a few chemicals in jelly. But from the mid-50s until now we've uncovered an incredible world of complexity, and
yet at its heart, DNA, the code of life, is really just a simple zipper. To replicate the cell is simply a matter of unzipping the strand of DNA and
zipping in new information. A zipper - so simple and so brilliant.
What this explanation proposes is that our solar system works in the same way - incredible complexity from a very simple construct. In this case it is
not a zipper but a game of jacks.
First is understanding the notion that the cosmos makes sense. We presently look at the universe the way we used to look at the cell - there's nothing
there. I mean there are lots of rocks out in space, fabulous rocks forming beautiful patterns, but that's all. The only life we see is here on Earth,
at least the only life we can invite over for dinner. And because we don't see anything - we say there is nothing there. But as we uncover more of the
universe we see an incredible grid system of galaxy clusters - hence the proposition of dark matter and dark energy.
What this explanation proposes is that the complexity we see at a planetary level and at a molecular level also exists at a cosmic level. And what I
hope to do is to pull back the curtain and show you the workings of the machine - in exactly the same way as Crick and Watson showed us the structure
This explanation is meant to accompany the book, Earth Mother Our Womb of Life: and the Coming New Heaven. The book is beautifully written - lyrical,
spiritual and holy. I highly recommend you read it. But I cannot write like that. My contribution is the physics - how the system works.
So let's get started.
The process of how a solar system forms is well described in the book. A sun explodes (Supernova) and material is hurled into space creating a Nebula.
A powerful vortex forms at the centre of the nebula pulling back some of the material to form a new smaller sun. Planets form by rolling ejecta in
packed hard ice. The planets circle the sun and the nebula is transformed into a solar system.
At the centre of each planet a core forms through the process of differentiation. Differentiation means that if I have a bucket of mixed materials -
rocks, pebbles and sand - and I shake the bucket, the heavier materials (rocks) will sink to the bottom of the bucket and the lighter materials (sand)
will rise to the top. So a core forms at the centre of each planet made up of iron and other heavy metals.
So far everything I have said is known - science already believes this is how a solar system and the planets within it form. But what I'm going to say
next is not known. Or rather it is known - it was first discovered in 1998. But it seems so unusual that it is not believed. What is it?
The core at the centre of each planet rotates in the opposite direction to the mantle creating heat and energy through friction. So there is a dynamo
beneath our feet, an iron ball the size of the moon spinning in the opposite direction to the planet, like an engine, a motor creating vast amounts of
heat and energy. We know the core of the Earth is the same temperature as the surface of the sun - but science does not know what is generating the
vast amount of heat. It was once thought the heat was left over from when the planet first formed, but that does not explain the consistent
temperature nor does it explain why the core seems to be getting hotter! Now the heat is explained as being the result of radioactive decay but once
again, that does not explain the constancy and consistency of heat around the planet - at depths of four feet the ground has a consistent temperature
of about 50 degrees Fahrenheit. A mechanism is required that can explain the consistency of heat and energy - a opposing rotating core does just that.
Once again it was discovered by researchers at Oxford University,
, but it was
thought to be an anomaly in the data.
I will continue in another post (I'm out of word space).
