Tidal Force on Mars
Just as the tidal force of Mars on the Tibetan-Himalayan Complex altered the rotation of the rigid outer shell of the Earth, the tidal force of the Earth on Mars’ Tharsis Bulge altered the rotation of its rigid outer shell when it orbited the Earth. But not in a way anyone today (astrophysicists included) could even imagine. If Tharsis had remained pointing toward Tibet during the encounters, the rotation of Mars outer shell would have had to come to a complete stop at the time of its capture and quickly begin to rotate in the opposite direction, which was physically impossible. The minimum energy solution, which the laws of physics obey, forced Mars’ north pole, i.e. the spin axis of its rigid outer shell, to remain pointing toward the Earth. Another way to picture this was that the greatly distended Tharsis Bulge, on Mars equator, remained equidistant from the Earth as it orbited. Because it was just on one side, that is, unbalanced, this rotation was a ‘wobbly’ or precessing motion. At that time the bulge was much more pronounced than today, leading to the name ‘dog-faced’ star, the Egyptian deity Anubis and in the Vedas the description of Indra as ‘an ugly child.’
This arrangement resulted in stationary tidal forces on both bodies. The tidal force of Mars centered on Tibet and the tidal force of the Earth centered on Mars’ north pole. On Earth, the results were that an ocean surrounded the Tibetan-Himalayan complex, the Mediterranean and Red Seas were emptied and a layer of rock beneath Tibet melted, which remains (mysteriously) melted to this day. The tidal force of the more massive Earth on Mars produced effects never imagined by any science fiction writer or astrophysicist. At the beginning of each encounter it drew all the water in Mars’ northern hemisphere toward its north pole, creating what planetary scientists today call the Oceanus Borealis (Northern Ocean). More gradually the tidal force of the Earth began melting enormous quantities of subsurface rock which, once mobile, began flowing toward the surface at its north pole. This lava was first seen as a glowing ‘mundane egg’ beneath the northern ocean, and then grew, extending above the ocean to become an island, the Egyptian ‘first land’ and the Hindu ‘avataras’, based on their imagined resemblance to e.g. a turtle or boar. As the melting increased, the lava began shooting straight up toward the Earth. As it rose, the outer edges hardened forming vertical lava tubes which intertwined until the structure rose an amazing height of some 2300 km! This amazing feature was adopted by all cultures as their primary deity: Prajapati, Brahma, Osiris, the djed pillar, Zeus, Atlas, the Biblical ‘the column of smoke and fire’, and ‘the extended arm of God.’ Its height can be calculated from the observation of four layers of specific minerals or elements which spread horizontally at the top, indicating the point at which the tidal forces of the two planets cancelled one another.
These layers led to the notion that Brahma had four heads and that he was the lotus that grew from the naval of Vishnu, where the northern island was Vishnu reclining in the northern ocean. They are also represented by four horizontal rings at the top of the djed pillar, closely associated with Osiris. In Egyptian funerary writings these were imagined to be the rungs of a rope ladder lowered toward the Earth to aid deceased pharaohs to climb to the Duat (the island in the northern ocean).
This spindly feature was supported primarily by the tidal force of the Earth, and when Mars’ interior was convulsed by alignments with the Moon or Moon and Sun combined, the entire column would collapse and the hardened tubes would fall and shatter, covering vast areas of Mars’ northern hemisphere. In fact, millions of pieces surround both NASA Viking lander sites, thousands of km apart (23 N, 50 W and 48 N, 226 W). The Vedas likened these collapses to a serpent shedding its skin because the lava flow continued and the figure grew right back. On some occasions huge hot rock bodies were ejected at high velocities through the same vent that fed the column, thus it was pictured as a deity sacrificing itself in order to create ‘embodied spirits’. Such huge bodies were ejected from all over Mars’ northern hemisphere, described in the Vedas where they were said to resemble tiny embers shooting from a burning log.
Because Mars was captured one hundred times and remained in orbit for fifteen years each time, so much rock was blasted into space that Mars’ entire northern third is now (inexplicably?) seven km lower than the rest of the planet. These bodies became the asteroids, comets, meteorites, and meteor showers still observed today.
The drawing of the water to Mars’ northern ocean facilitated the capture of the Martian oceans by the Earth when convulsions occurred. But, as discussed in my previous post, only the water in the hemisphere facing the Earth was attracted by the tidal force. The water on the far side of Mars was actually ‘pushed away’, toward its south pole during each encounter, making it unavailable to the Earth. This explains a big mystery for modern scientists: the evidence that many rilles in its southern hemisphere once flowed toward its south pole, in spite of their location on the north sides of impact craters that get less sunlight.
Interestingly, this aspect of the tidal force is the reason why the catastrophism consisted of one hundred cycles. In order that the Earth capture the maximum of Mars’ water,Mars had to be released into a planetary orbit for fifteen years between each encounter in order that the remaining water could be redistributed evenly over the planet, thereby making more available for capture during the next encounter.
The great knowledge, synchronization of massive planets and power made manifest in cyclic catastrophism, moreover the obvious purpose – to replenish the Earth even as mankind increased, leads to the obvious conclusion, that the LORD planned and executed the entire process. In the Bible, God even states that the Earth was aging and needed to be replenished in Romans 8:22:
For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.
Now cyclic catastrophism serves another important function. It informs mankind as to the origin, recent history and makeup, not only of the planets, but of mankind himself. It also reveals the reality of the LORD and his Common Grace extending to all mankind. For those readers who dislike the ancient wisdom revealed in my work, I take solice in John 15:18:
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated Me before it hated you.
