As We May Find in 1998 Part II
The verification of the Omen Trends continues...
The Trend of Increasing Volcanism Since Cayce’s use of the terms breaking up and upheavals can refer to volcanism, his predictions of the omen trends incites us to look for trends of increasing volcanism, especially:
Cayce’s specification is uncanny as any plate tectonics scientist will confirm. If the Earth shifts the location of its axis in response to a re-balancing of its mass, the shape of the Earth must also shift. The bulge at the equator must change its location and the flattening at the polar region must also shift location. This process of change must force changes in the actual shape of the crust. The old equator must sink, the new equator must expand, the old pole must expand, the new pole must sink. These deformations, among other things, must force extensive cracking, faulting, earthquakes, uplifting, downlifting and the rise of magma into the volcanoes.
In addition to earthquakes, volcanic activity must accompany these changes in the location of the pole. Any movement, any change in the location of the axis and the equator, no matter how small, will set up the strains and pressures which produce these results. These responses should be seen most especially in the tropics, the margins of the polar zones, and at the most highly stressed junctures of the most active tectonic plates. The only issue is the distance of the shift of the pole. The distance of the shift determines the magnitude of the changes.
Centrifugal force pushes the equator to bulge outwards. This is easily seen by the prevalence of volcanoes in the tropics. Seventy percent of them are in the tropical zones. Centrifugal force also tends to flatten the polar zones, stressing their edges. This can be seen in Antarctica where many mountains have been formed by the crumpling of the crust at the edges of the continent where it is cracking and bending downwards relative to the great arcs of the crust in the temperate zones. Along one edge of Antarctica, where the crust of the Earth is deeply cracked, many volcanoes have formed.
Before looking at the actual trends, another short geophysical lesson is in order. Most people tend to see volcanism produced from vertical forces, either the Earth pressing down to squeeze up the magma, or the magma being forced up in some other way (such as random hot spots cooked up by crazy aunts in the basement) to spill over on the surface. But a moment’s reflection suggests that this simply doesn’t work very well. Since the Earth’s crust floats like a series of interlocking rafts on the magma, all rafts equally in balance, how does magma spillover? What could possibly force it up above the float line of the crustal plates? Even if a big split emerged between two of the rafts, there is no force to impel the magma up. Some geologists used to assume, some still do, that it would just well up. But geophysicists know better and let the subject drop. Why wouldn’t the crack simply cool off and anneal itself shut?
The cause of volcanism is perfectly obvious and simple. It is lateral pressure. Part of the lateral pressure comes from the wobbling of the axis, which forces the uneven expansion and contraction of different parts of the crust. Another part of the lateral pressure in induced by the waxing and waning of the gravitational forces of the Moon as it moves closer and further way from the Earth in its monthly orbit. This distance varies by 7 per cent each month, causing a fairly significant alternating cycle of uneven stretching, expansion, contraction, upwelling, and downwelling of the crust. In a certain sense, these are Earth tides, caused just exactly like the moon’s motion causes the ocean tides. In this same sense, then, volcanism is simply tidal action, Earth tides.
These lateral forces from the wobble and the tidal forces from the Moon’s gravity combine unevenly to jostle the tectonic plates, forcing them to collide and grind against each other, even forcing the edges of some of them under the others. When the edge of a plate is pushed under another one by these lateral expansions and contractions, pressure is generated on the magma of the mantle to flow up through a convenient crack. That is the essence of volcanism though the reality is more complex and involves other factors, such as the water and gas which also sinks beneath the crustal plates and is driven back up by high heat.
So it is that volcanism is simply another direct consequence of the global tectonic forces generated in the crust in part by the wobbling motion of the axis, or, literally, by the slight wobbling or "chattering" motion of the entire crust. We know the ordinary motion of the crust is sending energy to all tectonic margins and joints every time Chandler’s wobble wobbles, every time the crust bobs up and down the X Wave. We easily can observe the reflection of the X Wave motion in some of the Earth quake charts. Can we also see correlations between volcanism and the X Wave? Most importantly, is there any trend of increase in volcanism as is apparent with the earthquakes?
