his global electromagnetic resonance phenomenon is named after physicist Winfried Otto Schumann who predicted it mathematically in 1952. Schumann resonances occur because the space between the surface of the Earth and the conductive ionosphere acts as a closed waveguide. The limited dimensions of the Earth cause this waveguide to act as a resonant cavity for electromagnetic waves in the ELF band. The cavity is naturally excited by electric currents in lightning. Schumann resonances are the principal background in the electromagnetic spectrum beginning at 3 Hz and extend to 60 Hz, and appear as distinct peaks at extremely low frequencies (ELF) around 7.86 (fundamental), 14.3, 20.8, 27.3 and 33.8 Hz.
The underlying material in this discussion seems to be granite, as it has a high quartz content, and we know that applying high pressures to quartz produces a piezoelectric effect which can generate sparks and electrostatic charged air around the area under pressure. If the rock breaks, then some times small plasma balls can be produced, but only a short time in the laboratory. Granite also has a lot of radon gas locked up in it as well, as this is another anomaly that you say is present in your theory.
But another question that comes to mind is the affect a massive body of water has on TEC, because obviously subduction zone faults are under water. Like LOTS of water. How does this TEC residual theory deal with that?
