Some 41,000 years ago, a complete and rapid reversal of the geomagnetic field occured. Magnetic studies of the GFZ German Research Centre for Geosciences on sediment cores from the Black Sea show that during this period, during the last ice age, a compass at the Black Sea would have pointed to the south instead of north.
What is remarkable is the speed of the reversal: "The field geometry of reversed polarity, with field lines pointing into the opposite direction when compared to today's configuration, lasted for only about 440 years, and it was associated with a field strength that was only one quarter of today's field," explains Norbert Nowaczyk. "The actual polarity changes lasted only 250 years. In terms of geological time scales, that is very fast." During this period, the field was even weaker, with only 5% of today's field strength. As a consequence, Earth nearly completely lost its protection shield against hard cosmic rays, leading to a significantly increased radiation exposure.

If it will not be from the Sun then it may come from Earth.

A sudden magnetical poles reversal is the one that can cut off the entire electrical system and with it everything that relies on electric current.

Besides the extrem weather that we already can see and feel,the other effects are and will be agravated as the moment is approaching.

Increased vulcanic eruption and strange behaviours in the animal kingdom are also signs that something will happen from this point of view.

This why some old pictures that I have seen long time ago shows planes collapsing,because in such case the engines of planes will stop working.

As nuclear power plants will not be able to begin the process of shutting down.

Because the backup power that should keep them at working will also malfunction.

And many many other things that can happen....

If our magnetic field collapses, there will be some places that will still have a magnetic field strong enough to support life. From these areas life will again rebound. They are areas where the dipoles of the magnetic field originate. I am not sure where these magnetic bubbles will be. Even Mars has these magnetic bubbles left on it's surface, although it's magnetic field did not rebound well and it's ecosystem collapsed million of years ago.

Don't worry, it's not like it is the end of the world, it is not the end of society either unless we let it become that way. Mankind went through this before if it was only 41000 years ago and a few survived to repopulate the planet. Seems strange that Neanderthals disappeared around that time, maybe they couldn't live in that environment.

Magnetic or pole reversals occur on avergave 7 times per million years..so quite frequently in geologic terms.

But, as your posts states the last one was about 40,000 years ago, we would have another 100,000 years before another one.

Even then, there's no evidence (only speculation) that a pole reversal, even a fairly rapid one, would have any effect on electrical systems.

More damage (much more damage) is done by solar storms and the effects from CME's etc...it's these that will wipe out any unprotected or hardened electrical equipment...pole reversals are not that damaging to electrical systems.

I have a feeling that where the pyramids are right now there will be those magnetic bubbles will be.

I am not worried,just presenting the facts.

Indeed CME's are dangerous,but a sudden magnetic pole reversal will certainly produce an EMP which will have the same effect ,even worse.

If there was a change in the earths polarity, im pretty sure people would be more concerned about the world seemingly imploding on itself, rather than not being able to charge their iphone. Then again...

Most of the Pyramids won't work anymore, they were designed after natural mountains but their stones have been removed. It seems to me that mountains would be the safest place, mountains that contain a lot of minerals.

If we look at the migration patterns of humans long ago, we will see that they went to the hills during the winter and went to farm the flatlands in the summer. It seems that there is hidden knowledge in our genetics that we have been taught to ignore. Holy places of old were places where springs came out of the tops of hills, the magnetic currents in these places are higher from the currents that are created by the quickening of the earth. Where I live we have everything except Salt and Iodine, so I doubt if this is a safe place. We'll just have to wait and see.

All our knowledge is being recorded in digital media, a place that may become inaccessible to people. I can see a turnback on our knowledge in the future as new generations are born if their is a reversal. Books will be burned for heat and cooking, the only thing that will survive is whatever is written in stone. In a thousand years, people will not even be speaking English anymore, look at how long a language lasts in this world. Noone will be able to understand any ancient(present) writings in a thousand years.

Nah..not really. EMP effects can be generated by a rapid reversal / magnetic flux, but in relatively minor strengths.

No way near to being similar to the EMP from a nuclear explosion for example.

Magnetic flux lines have been tested in lava rocks and other geological features exposed to previous pole reversals and they all show that the energies we're looking at in a pole reversal, even a fairly rapid one, are quite minor and shouldn't have much of an impact. Very long runs of electrical cable would probably be mostly affected and even then very little damage is estimated to happen judging by previous pole reversal evidence collected.


Plimer (2001) suggested that a rapid magnetic reversal could cause the failure of all electronic equipment worldwide and suggested the possible collapse of Western Civilisation. However, comparing the intensity of magnetic flux during the shortest magnetic reversals with that of existing magnetic flux systems such as solar and magnetic storms, offers no evidence that a magnetic reversal will substantially impact electronic or electrical technology.

This is a process that began almost 250 years ago and can stop very fast.

I have a feeling that the great majority of the people are feeling a little dizzy these days.

And I wonder why.

Maybe because the elements that use to compose the strenght of the magnetical field are not intensively present.

Therefore the equilibrium center of the brain is affected in a way in which is trying to converse the new data translated by small electrical impulses that tries to compensate the lack of energy needed to regain orientation points in space.

This why the + effort that the brain is doing gives a plus of dizziness to the body.

You might be right because in those times no advanced technological civilization(s) were present on Earth.

Rotation of the Earth generates the magnetic field.
The source I assume to be the electrons in the Earth and thus move
in a circle just as in a coil that generates an exactly similar magnetic
field.

Not to criticize the illustrious people with great hindsight to millions
of years the postulation of Velikovsky puts a pole reversal at about
3500 years ago in human history. The reversal was a physical one
and at that time the magnetic field meant nothing to the inhabitants.

So yes indeed if magnetic poles reversal means a flip of Velikovsky
vintage havoc to electrical systems will be great.

I'm curious.

How would a magnetic field reversal cause alternating current to stop working?

It's "alternating" (sine wave).

Not disputing, just asking.

The real danger of the magnetic pole reversal is the weakening of the magnetosphere. The earth would be more at risk from CMEs when the earths shield is lowered....... that is my concern...... not that we will be hit by a full strength CME but a glancing blow while the pole change when the magnetosphere's strength is reduced....


www.history.com...

if this storm would hit today it would be very different than taking down the telegraph network.....




On the morning of September 1, 1859, amateur astrologer Richard Carrington ascended into the private observatory attached to his country estate outside of London. After cranking open the dome’s shutter to reveal the clear blue sky, he pointed his brass telescope toward the sun and began to sketch a cluster of enormous dark spots that freckled its surface. Suddenly, Carrington spotted what he described as “two patches of intensely bright and white light” erupting from the sunspots. Five minutes later the fireballs vanished, but within hours their impact would be felt across the globe.

That night, telegraph communications around the world began to fail; there were reports of sparks showering from telegraph machines, shocking operators and setting papers ablaze. All over the planet, colorful auroras illuminated the nighttime skies, glowing so brightly that birds began to chirp and laborers started their daily chores, believing the sun had begun rising. Some thought the end of the world was at hand, but Carrington’s naked eyes had spotted the true cause for the bizarre happenings: a massive solar flare with the energy of 10 billion atomic bombs. The flare spewed electrified gas and subatomic particles toward Earth, and the resulting geomagnetic storm—dubbed the “Carrington Event”—was the largest on record to have struck the planet.

Other geomagnetic reversals didn't coincide with mass extinction events.

And if it happens over even a month or so, no EMP. In 2 seconds, maybe.

The magnetosphere doesn't really protect us from CMEs (though it does protect the upper atmosphere). Actually, it is the magnetosphere which is responsible for geomagnetic storms. The charging and fluctuations of the Earth's magnetic field which are induced by CMEs produce ground currents in the earth. Those currents can cause severe problems with power transformers.

With no magnetosphere there would be no geomagnetic activity. A weakened magnetosphere would result in lessened geomagnetic activity. Less intense ground currents, posing less of a risk to power grids.

By frequency and period of the wave.

Those two things are inversely related. You specify one, you get the other. It's redundant to say both.

Nonetheless, no. That's not going to 'stop alternating current'.

Frequency for current and period for the collector wave .

"Collector wave"? Do tell.

Things seem “off” lately. The markets are more wacked then normal and we have a lot of major events all colliding into each other at the same time. There is to much stuff happening at once for my liking and it leads me to believe we are on the cusp of a large event in the near future.
