No. 30. Magnetohydrodynamics and the coming Earth crustal displacement (includes expanding Earth)

PAGE STATUS: It has taken forever to bring this page into focus. Right now the content is a train wreck of sections from all over the place. Obviously, this page has never been edited as a whole. The page title no longer refers to an “axial tilt” because I no longer have any doubts whatsoever that what happens is an Earth crustal displacement. Einstein understood nothing about the electromagnetic universe and therefore had no concept of magnetohydrodynamics. So what he thought on the subject does not matter. What does matter is that an actual “axial tilt” (a change in the inclination of the planet) is all but physically impossible. Therefore, any evidence of pole shifts in the past, of which there is plenty, must be considered as evidence of an Earth crustal displacement, though I maintain my argument that for someone on the surface of the planet there is no difference. It’s either going to kill you or look and feel like an axial tilt. Still, I am determined to quit the use of “axial tilt” on this website.

An Earth Crustal Displacement versus an Axial Tilt: What’s the Difference?

See also: ASL. The Adam and Eve Story by Chan Thomas

The idea of an Earth crustal displacement was first proposed by Charles Hapgood in his 1958 book entitled The Earth’s Shifting Crust. I will assume the reader’s familiarity with this subject, or else their willingness to research it on their own. A few good YouTube videos should suffice.

What is the difference between an earth crustal displacement and an axial tilt? I do not engage in this discussion for the simple reason that, from the perspective of someone on the surface of the planet, there is no difference between the two.

Both result in super tsunamis, mega-earthquakes, and unimaginable loss of life. For example, the following two paragraphs from Chapter IX, “Axis Shifted” in Immanuel Velikovsky’s Earth in Upheaval are oft quoted in books, magazine articles, and websites:

Let us assume, as a working hypothesis, that under the impact of a force or the influence of an agent – and the Earth does not travel in an empty universe – the axis of the earth shifted or tilted. At that moment an earthquake would make the globe shudder. Air and water would continue to move through inertia; hurricanes would sweep the Earth, and the seas would rush over continents, carrying gravel and sand and marine animals, and casting them onto land. Heat would be developed, rocks would melt, volcanoes would erupt, lava would flow from fissures in the ruptured ground and cover vast areas. Mountains would spring up from the plains and would climb and travel upon the shoulders of other mountains, causing faults and rifts. Lakes would be tilted and emptied, rivers would change their beds; large land areas and all their inhabitants would slip under the sea. Forests would burn, and the hurricanes and wild seas would wrest them from the ground on which they grew and pile them, branch and root, in heaps. Seas would turn into deserts, their waters rolling away.

And if the change in the velocity of the diurnal rotation [slowing the planet down] should accompany the shifting of the axis, the water confined to the equatorial oceans by centrifugal force would retreat to the poles, and high tides and hurricanes would rush from pole to pole, carrying reindeers and seals to the tropics and desert lions to the Arctic, moving from the equator up to the mountain ridges of the Himalayas and down the African jungles; and crumbled rocks torn from splintering mountains would be scattered over large distances; and herds of animals would be washed from the plains of Siberia. The shifting of the axis would change the climate in every place, leaving corals in Newfoundland and elephants in Alaska, fig trees in northern Greenland and luxuriant forests in Antarctica. In the event of a rapid shift of the axis, many species and genera of animals on land and in the sea would be destroyed, and civilizations, if any, would be reduced to ruins. [red-bold emphasis added]

Rand and Rose Flem-Ath are to Charles Hapgood what David Talbott is to Immanuel Velikovsky. Their work has championed his theory, once acknowledged by no less than Albert Einstein, of an Earth crustal displacement. To a lesser extent, parts or all of the following paragraphs from their 1996 book In Search of Atlantis are also often quoted in works on the subject. Now compare Velikovsky’s above discussion of an axial tilt to the following description of an Earth crustal displacement they imagined happen during what I usually describe as the 9500 BC event.

…[the 9500 BC event] left other evidence of its deadly visit in a ring of death around the globe. All the continents that experience rapid and massive extinctions of animal species (notably the Americas and Siberia) underwent massive changes in their latitudes…

The consequences of the displacement are monumental. The earth’s crust ripples over its interior and the world is shaken by incredible quakes and floods. They sky appears to fall as continents groan and shift position. Deep in the ocean, earthquakes generate massive tidal waves which crash against the coastlines, flooding them. Some lands shift to warmer climes, while others, propelled into polar zones, suffer the direst of winters. Melting ice caps raise the ocean’s level higher and higher. All living things must adapt, migrate or die…

If the horror of an earth-crust displacement were to be visited upon today’s interdependent world the progress of thousands of years of civilization would be torn away from our planet like a fine cobweb. Those who live near high mountains might escape the global tidal waves, but they would be forced to leave behind, in the lowlands, the slowly constructed fruits of civilization. [red-bold emphasis added]

There is no difference. Hence, whenever I discuss this subject, if I refer to an “axial tilt,” you may interpret it to mean an Earth crustal shift if you are so inclined. My only objection to doing so is that Hapgood argued that the latter occur over a 5,000 year period, or longer. This I find to be contrary to the evidence of what happened in 9500 BC. It is notable that Rand and Rose Flem-Ath disagree with him on this most important point. None of these people were geologists, but the evidence such as the muck deposits in Alaska make it perfectly clear that these were cataclysmic events, not gradual over thousands of year of time.

Alaskan “muck” (catastrophic deposits) from page 57 of Cataclysm! Compelling Evidence of a Cosmic Catastrophe in 9500 BC by D.S. Allan & J.B. Delair

This picture is from Part One, Section 14, “Turmoil Unleashed.” For a historian, Charles Hapgood made a far greater contribution to the body of knowledge than his formally trained geologist contemporaries, but he is just plain wrong about the duration of time it takes for one of these axial tilts (or Earth crustal displacements) to occur. They are catastrophic. Note also that nothing on this page has anything to do with the uniformitarian-bias term “true” polar wander.

At the end of the Modern Maximum, could a massive X-class solar flare alone trigger an Earth crustal displacement?

I am utterly fascinated by this article in CU Boulder Today. “CU Boulder” is no less than the University of Colorado Boulder, which is all the more reason to sit up and take notice. I am copying the entire article for the convenience of the reader.

Humongous flare from sun’s nearest neighbor breaks records
Published: April 21, 2021 • By Daniel Strain

Scientists have spotted the largest flare ever recorded from the sun’s nearest neighbor, the star Proxima Centauri. 

The research, which appears today in The Astrophysical Journal Letters, was led by CU Boulder and could help to shape the hunt for life beyond Earth’s solar system.

CU Boulder astrophysicist Meredith MacGregor explained that Proxima Centauri is a small but mighty star. It sits just four light-years or more than 20 trillion miles from our own sun and hosts at least two planets, one of which may look something like Earth. It’s also a “red dwarf,” the name for a class of stars that are unusually petite and dim. 

Proxima Centauri has roughly one-eighth the mass of our own sun. But don’t let that fool you. 

In their new study, MacGregor and her colleagues observed Proxima Centauri for 40 hours using nine telescopes on the ground and in space. In the process, they got a surprise: Proxima Centauri ejected a flare, or a burst of radiation that begins near the surface of a star, that ranks as one of the most violent seen anywhere in the galaxy. 

“The star went from normal to 14,000 times brighter when seen in ultraviolet wavelengths over the span of a few seconds,” said MacGregor, an assistant professor at the Center for Astrophysics and Space Astronomy (CASA) and Department of Astrophysical and Planetary Sciences (APS) at CU Boulder.

The team’s findings hint at new physics that could change the way scientists think about stellar flares. They also don’t bode well for any squishy organism brave enough to live near the volatile star.

“If there was life on the planet nearest to Proxima Centauri, it would have to look very different than anything on Earth,” MacGregor said. “A human being on this planet would have a bad time.”

Active stars

The star has long been a target for scientists hoping to find life beyond Earth’s solar system. Proxima Centauri is nearby, for a start. It also hosts one planet, designated Proxima Centauri b, that resides in what researchers call the “habitable zone”—a region around a star that has the right range of temperatures for harboring liquid water on the surface of a planet.

But there’s a twist, MacGregor said: Red dwarves, which rank as the most common stars in the galaxy, are also unusually lively.

“A lot of the exoplanets that we’ve found so far are around these types of stars,” she said. “But the catch is that they’re way more active than our sun. They flare much more frequently and intensely.”

To see just how much Proxima Centauri flares, she and her colleagues pulled off what approaches a coup in the field of astrophysics: They pointed nine different instruments at the star for 40 hours over the course of several months in 2019. Those eyes included the Hubble Space Telescope, the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) and NASA’s Transiting Exoplanet Survey Satellite (TESS). Five of them recorded the massive flare from Proxima Centauri, capturing the event as it produced a wide spectrum of radiation.

“It’s the first time we’ve ever had this kind of multi-wavelength coverage of a stellar flare,” MacGregor. “Usually, you’re lucky if you can get two instruments.”

Crispy planet

The technique delivered one of the most in-depth anatomies of a flare from any star in the galaxy.

The event in question was observed on May 1, 2019 and lasted just 7 seconds. While it didn’t produce a lot of visible light, it generated a huge surge in both ultraviolet and radio, or “millimeter,” radiation. 

“In the past, we didn’t know that stars could flare in the millimeter range, so this is the first time we have gone looking for millimeter flares,” MacGregor said. 

Those millimeter signals, MacGregor added, could help researchers gather more information about how stars generate flares. Currently, scientists suspect that these bursts of energy occur when magnetic fields near a star’s surface twist and snap with explosive consequences.  

In all, the observed flare was roughly 100 times more powerful than any similar flare seen from Earth’s sun. Over time, such energy can strip away a planet’s atmosphere and even expose life forms to deadly radiation.

That type of flare may not be a rare occurrence on Proxima Centauri. In addition to the big boom in May 2019, the researchers recorded many other flares during the 40 hours they spent watching the star.

“Proxima Centauri’s planets are getting hit by something like this not once in a century, but at least once a day if not several times a day,” MacGregor said. 

The findings suggest that there may be more surprises in store from the sun’s closest companion. 

“There will probably be even more weird types of flares that demonstrate different types of physics that we haven’t thought about before,” MacGregor said.

Other coauthors on the new study include Steven Cranmer, associate professor in APS and the Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) at CU Boulder; Adam Kowalski, assistant professor in APS and LASP at CU Boulder, also of the National Solar Observatory; Allison Youngblood, research scientist at LASP; and Anna Estes, undergraduate research assistant in APS. 

The Carnegie Institution for Science, Arizona State University, NASA Goddard Spaceflight Center, University of Maryland, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, University of Sydney, CSIRO Astronomy and Space Science, Space Telescope Science Institute, Johns Hopkins University, the Center for Astrophysics | Harvard & Smithsonian and the University of British Columbia also contributed to this research. 

The author of this article suggests the solar flare they observed may not be at all unusual for a red dwarf such as Proxima Centauri. But given the source of this article. I nevertheless felt compelled to include a reference to it on this website. Try as I will, I cannot eliminate the possibility that the core of the planet has been superheated by the Modern Maximum and that an unusually intense X-class solar flare alone may be responsible for triggering the Earth crustal displacement. But of course, if that is true, then the number 13, Ophiuchus, and everything else discussed on page № 29.  Number 13, Ophiuchus, the Galactic Center, active Seyfert galaxies, and Galactic Superwaves is misdirection, and that I am not ready to admit

The evidence that Earth’s core has been superheated is everywhere, but none more so in the level of volcanism. This YouTube video title recently caught my eye.

Regrettably, I have never found a website that measures the level of volcanism in such a way as to provide some kind of historical context in which to gauge what is happening in the here and now. This is very frustrating for me. However, I believe a noticeable increase in volcanism all over the world is evident to everyone who is paying attention. 


A contributor named Rolf B 66.6 ̊N who I regrettably never heard from again sent me a full copy of The Adam and Eve Story written by Dr. Chan Thomas which I discuss on page № 89. Dr. Chan Thomas author of the CIA classified “The Adam and Eve Story”. He signed that ever so brief email thusly,

Magnetohydrodynamics are the key…

I suspect this man was highly intelligent.

Apparently our solar system is entering an area of space in our 26,000-year binary dance with the Sirius star system in which with great regularity the outer core and outer mantle become liquid enough to account for the missing force of Einstein and our planet experiences what has become popularly known as an earth crust displacement. I prefer axial tilt because that is how it is remembered and for someone on the surface there is no difference. Let us just pray Dr. Thomas was wrong about the “thousand mile-per-hour wind.” If he is not, our chances of surviving on the surface are slim to nil. I think he is mistaken about this.

I want to end this discussion by mentioning the Russians who I hold in the greatest of esteem (I live with a Russian Jew). They also see in the data streams from the two Voyager probes evidence that our solar system is headed into a highly unusual area of the galaxy at an estimated “230 km/s (828,000 km/h) or 143 mi/s (514,000 mph).” –Wikipedia, Galactic year. I will leave it as an exercise for the reader to compute how far we will travel between now and what the so-called “prophets” of the Old Testament call the “day of our Lord.” The truth is that someone remembers. I call that someone the progeny of Jove.

For the sake of completeness, here

Magnetohydrodynamics in “The Adam and Eve Story” by Dr. Chan Thomas

A well known author recently sent me a link to a video made by the mysterious Rolf B. I was glad to receive it. In the intervening years since I originally heard from the mysterious Rofl B, I have come to intuitively realize that this subject is key to understanding what is about to happen to our planet.

The video is a series of eight screens. I have made copies of each screen to make them easier to read. I am also going to add commentary to help the reader understand what Rolf B is saying with each screen.

Trigger for crustal displacement, The Adam and Eve story – “Sanitized” version vs 1993 full version from the Rolf B YouTube channel

As you can see in the section entitled CIA Sanitized Copy of The Adam and Eve Story on page № 90. Dr. Chan Thomas author of the CIA classified “The Adam and Eve Story”, “Sanitized” is not the invention of Rolf B. It is on every copy downloaded form the website. Rolf B is just rather poetically suggesting that removing all references to magnetohydrodynamics in “The Adam and Eve Story” by Dr. Chan Thomas is insane.

Expanding earth

The evidence for this is deep rifts or chasms (commonly referred to as earth cracks), sinkholes, and disappearing bodies of water. Why is this happening now?

Expanding Earth? New theory on how Earth’s tectonic plates may have formed

What happened to all the expanding earth stuff???

There are four reasons why this is happening now.

  2. 5,100 PLUS YEARS OF MATTER FROM SPACE: Matter from space in many different forms (including the sunlight that results in photosynthesis) is accreting on the surface of the planet every single day
  5. THE SIRIUS STAR SYSTEM: The Sirius star system has crossed over some invisible threshold and is beginning to disturb the entire solar system. Earth is expanding now in part because of the approach of the gravitational behemoth Sirius

Deep rifts or chasms (a.k.a. “Earth cracks”), sinkholes, and disappearing bodies of water

Deep Rifts or Chasms (a.k.a. “Earth Cracks”) and Sinkholes are Appearing Everywhere. Why Now? Earth is Expanding. The evidence for this is deep rifts or chasms (commonly referred to as earth cracks), sinkholes, and disappearing bodies of water. Why is this happening now? The answer to this question can be found on page № 18. Earth is Expanding (the definition of hell).

There is some spectacular new evidence of these chasms in the most recent “SOTT Earth Changes” release for December, 2018.

“SOTT Earth Changes Summary – December 2018: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs” from the Sott Media channel

Asteroids alone add over 11,000 tons of rock per day to earth’s crust. Most of them burn up in the atmosphere, but their dust falls to the earth. That’s over four million tons a year or four billion tons every century or four trillion tons every millennium. To that meteoric dust, you must add photosynthesis, the constant barrage of plasma from the sun entering earth’s atmosphere through the poles (i.e. the Aurora Borealis), and galactic cosmic rays (GCR). Of course the earth is expanding over billions of years. How could it be otherwise?

About 25 million meteors enter the Earth’s atmosphere every day (duck!). Most burn up and about 1 million kilograms of dust per day settles to the Earth’s surface. The most common meteorites are chondrites, which are stony meteorites. —From the University of Oregon

The crust is destabilizing because magma is working its way to the surface all over the planet. This is because of what happens during interglacials; earth’s core heats up, then magma burst through all over the planet. This is beginning to happen right now. This process over hundreds of millions and billions of years is how the earth gradually expands in response to the endless barrage of asteroids, plasma, galactic cosmic rays (GCR), and sunlight (photosynthesis). We know this is starting to happen because there are fissures opening up all over the world and volcanic activity is at an unprecedented level. Soon it will become apocalyptic.

Isaiah 24:18-19 (“Isaiah’apocalypsese“)
…the foundations of the earth do shake. The earth is utterly broken down, the earth is clean dissolved, the earth is moved exceedingly

Sinkholes are part of this phenomena. So are all the disappearing lakes and rivers all over the earth. The crust is cracking in the ocean, too. That is why there is an increasing number of reports of “missing” oceans.

I was and still am surprised at how difficult it has been to find a good YouTube compilation of what are now being called “earth cracks.” Overlooking the awkward name, the following one entitled “Something is Trying to Escape from Under the Earth” from the On Point Preparedness YouTube channel is by far the best compilation I could find, at least up until 4:19 minutes into the video. At that point, he gets religiously weird for 1:25 minutes after which he offers some more realistic possibilities as to why this is happening.

I admire John Casey, but not his 206-year cycle. The shortest cycle of destruction I have identified is 36 orbits of Jupiter, which is 427 years. 36 orbits of Jupiter ago was 1591 which marked the onset of the Little Ice Age in terms of the extreme drop in solar activity which preceded the temperature drop.

Something much bigger is happening though. What can account for all of this? As a species, we understand the oceans are a huge heat sink that operates on their own time scale, but what we fail to realize is that the entire planet is also a heat sink that likewise operates on its own time scale.

Earth is expanding in response to the extreme solar activity of the Modern Maximum, which peaked in 1958 and exceeded anything seen over the past 10,000 years. The core of our planet is overheated. Consequently, the crust is destabilizing. The frequency of earth cracks, sinkholes, disappearing rivers, lakes, and even oceans is on the rise.

The producer of this video is right to associate these “earth cracks” with the end times. The crust is destabilizing. This will not stop. It will only get worse. Well-meaning scientists are offering different explanations, but the fact remains that these cracks are appearing all over the world. Scan the results of this YouTube search for “cracks in the earth” to see for yourself.

The is NO Planet Nine (or Nibiru), but the following “Where is all the water disappearing to? Major bodies of water vanishing globally!” video from the Planet Nibiru YouTube channel is otherwise the best compilation I have found to date on this subject:

This phenomenon continues on a nearly daily basis

Subscribe to the End Times Signs YouTube channel (highly recommended). They include earth cracks all the time.

Who measures the obliquity of the ecliptic (ε), otherwise known as the axial tilt?

…the obliquity of the ecliptic is not a fixed quantity. At present, it is decreasing at a rate of about 47″ per century. –Wikipedia, Axial Tilt

Today, on September 9, 2019 at noon, Earth’s axial tilt, or mean obliquity was 23.43672° or 23°26’12.2″. Earth’s mean obliquity today is about 0.00001°, or 0.04″, less than 30 days ago.

0.00012 = 1 year

0.0012 = 10 years

0.012 = 100 years

0.024 = 200 years

0.048 = 400 years

0.06 = 500 years

0.072 = 600 years



Research notes

In the legends of the Tahoe (California) Indians, for instance, we read of the strife:“There was a time when their tribe possessed the whole Earth and were strong and numerous,and rich; but a day came when a people rose up stronger than they and defeated and enslaved them. Afterward the Great Spirit sent an immense wave across the continent from the sea, and this wave engulfed both the oppressors and the oppressed, all but a very small remnant”

From Plato’s Timaeus:

In one day and one fatal night, there came mighty earthquakes and inundations that engulfed that warlike peoples. The people, terrified, could hardly breathe…mouths were drenched in blood, heads wallowed in blood…The face was made pale by the Evil Wind.

From Plato’s Critias:

This vast power, gathered into one, endeavored to subdue with a blow our country and yoursand the whole of the region…then, Solon, your country shone forth, in the excellence of her virtue and strength among all mankind. She was preeminent in military skill and was the leader of the Hellenes…she defeated and triumphed over the invaders and preserved from slavery those who were not yet subjugated, and generously liberated all the rest of us who dwell between the Pillars. But afterwards, occurred violent earthquakes and floods and in a single day and night of misfortune all your warlike men in a body sank into the Earth and the Island of Atlantis in like manner disappeared in the depths of the sea.

1 There are also two references to the “day of God” in the New Testament. One is included because it is closely bound to one of the “day of the Lord” quotes. Likewise, there are four references to the “day of wrath” (as opposed to the day of His wrath” above). One is included because it is closely bound to one of the “day of the Lord” uses. The other three are excluded because they add nothing to the discussion. The list goes on. There are ten references to the “day of trouble” but they have been excluded because of a lack of specificity, though I believe at least two or three of them may be equivalent to the “day of the Lord.” There are numerous others such as the “day of destruction” that are used infrequently. Some are included because they are closely bound to a “day oft he Lord.” Others are not. I have deliberately excluded all references to the “day of the Lord Jesus,” “day of our Lord Jesus Christ,” and the “day of Christ Jesus” as well as to the “day of judgment” because I am not at all sure they mean the same thing, thou at least one of them clearly does.
