Mercury the Former Core of Mars

Cyclic Catastrophism explains that Mars, a  planet full of water, vegetation and life some 6,000 years ago, was ejected by the rampaging proto-Venus from its warm ancient orbit into one which crossed that of the Earth.  It was then  repeatedly captured in geostationary orbit over Mt. Kailas in Tibet every 30 years from 3700 to 687 BC and subsequently released into a planetary orbit for a comparable time.  The captures all occurred with the planet intact.

Mars’ Captures

As it approached the Earth its tidal force ‘latched onto’ the raised mass of the Tibetan-Himilayan complex,  causing the lithosphere and crust of the Earth to change its rotational velocity to 360 days per year and rotational axis to central Canada, lubricated from the mantle by the asthenosphere.  This independent rotation provided the ‘sink’ which absorbed the planet’s excess energy, making capture possible and returned it when released.

Previous close encounters with the rampaging proto-Venus had greatly distorted the shape of Mars, described in the Vedas as ‘Indra was an ugly child’.  It was also called the ‘dog star’ (nothing to do with Sirius), the ‘snout’ of which (the Egyptian deity Anubis) was the greatly distended Tharsis Bulge.  This mass anomaly caused Mars’ lithosphere to rotate so that its north pole remained pointing toward the Earth during each encounter – 14.4 years, a kalpa or manvantara.  This orientation, combined with its close proximity, ~ 36,000 km surface-to-surface, resulted in the immediate attraction of all the water in its northern hemisphere to its north pole, evidence of which lies in the outflow channels and formation of the northern ocean now called ‘Oceanus Borealis’.

More slowly, the enormous tidal force of the Earth caused melting of massive quantities of Martian subsurface rock, the glowing lava sphere seen as the ‘world egg‘  in the northern ocean. It continued to expand and eventually rose above the ocean at its north pole.  This was the firmament (the biblical raqia, which separated the “waters above” from the “waters below” the earth. This was the Egyptian ‘risen land’ (ta tenan) also called the duat. As the encounter progressed, magma shot higher and higher from the center of this ‘island’ into the ‘air’, eventually forming the most unique and impressive feature on the surface of Mars – a giant column of intertwined vertical lava tubes which extended some 2,300 km down toward the Earth, spouting smoke and fire.  This was the single most worshiped (feared) deity in the pantheon of every culture (Prajapati, Purusha, Brahma, Osiris, Zeus, Atlas, Yggdrasil (the world tree), ‘the column of smoke and fire’, ‘djed pillar’, axis mundi).  It  was symbolically depicted as the Egyptian Tet or Djed Pillar, but was physically much more spindly and fragile, as suggested by its imagined use as a rope ladder  by which the pharaoh’s souls ascended to the duat in funerary texts.

Mars’ Deconstructions

As Mars revolved about the Earth it would pass rapidly through alignments with the Moon or worst yet with the Sun and Moon combined.  These alignments caused enormous convulsions within Mars, resulting in hundreds of flaming volcanoes in its northern hemisphere, which remained facing the Earth during each encounter, blasting hot rocks to the Earth.  As a result of one hundred such captures and releases of Mars, all of the life supporting materials on the formerly living planet – its minerals, soil, atmosphere, oceans, crust and flora, as manna, haoma and Soma (Vedic) were blasted to the Earth. Rocks that missed the Earth, some Mt. Everest-sized, were ejected into space, producing all the near-earth asteroids, short period comets, meteorites and meteor showers, some of which remain in orbits which pass close to the Earth to this day.  These repeated convulsions gradually weakened Mars, setting the stage for each of its escapes from the Earth orbit.  However, in order to leave this geostationary orbit at the end of each kalpa (14.4 years), a number of additional physical events had to occur.  The most easily understandable ones were its alignments with the Sun and Moon combined, which occurred at the vernal (spring) equinox.  This was the date of every release of Mars and the reason for the fear of eclipses in all ancient culture.  At the same date, every thirty years, Venus, then in an eccentric orbit swung out closest to the Earth, its inferior conjunction and aphelion coinciding,  its tidal force adding to that of the Sun and Moon.  But even these combined tidal forces could not alone cause Mars to escape Earth orbit.  The ancient texts reveal even more radical events, which could only have been calculated by a higher intelligence and executed by a higher power.

Mars’ Escapes

The essential process in each Mars escape was that its solid iron core had to temporarily exit the planet.  Ancient texts describe this in a number of ways, but Egyptian texts are the most lucid. Egyptian texts explain that the solid core first appeared as the eye of Horus (Mars) and then, as Hathor, exited Mars and dropped into a lower orbit,  zooming around the Earth toward the East in what is now called a slingshot maneuver, while the outer shell (with a large flaming gap in it) drifted to the west, passing over the Middle East, (This was the origin of the Jewish Passover, which occurs on the date of the vernal equinox) moving slowly away from the Earth.  The two parts rejoined eight days later, a period reinforced by the well known Vedic purification ceremony, called the Barashnom of nine nights, concluding with the two  leaving the Earth piggy-back and entering a planetary orbit which intersected the orbit of the Earth, where Mars reformed for the next 15.6 years.  This exodus featured great storms, thundering, earthquakes, a shift of some 30 degrees in the spin axis of the lithosphere back to its normal orientation and a major readjustment of the ocean levels around the world.  It occurred one-hundred times – every thirty years, between 3687 and 687 BC.  As a result of this timing, one hundred generations of mankind, in every culture, witnessed these world-shaking events, ensuring their accurate rendition in ancient texts.  These events would have completely destroyed the vast infrastructure that exists today.

The Ejection of Mars’ Solid Iron Core

The Egyptians narrate these cosmic events in the funerary text of pharaoh Pepi’s soul  ‘to the gods’.  His soul first ascends to the duat, the island at the north pole of Mars, with the aid of a ‘rope ladder’ lowered from the planet.  This was the column of smoke and fire, the djed pillar, which had four horizontal layers near the top (the four heads of Brahma  in the Vedas and of Osiris in Egyptian pictographs), which were imagined to be its rungs.  The  pharaoh (each pharaoh was believed to follow this path) then descended into the interior through the enlarged vent at Mars’ north pole, out of which the column originated, known as the entrance into the Amenta, the ‘underworld’. This descent was necessary because the pharaoh had to mount the solid core which exited Mars through the Valles Marineris which was on the equator of Mars.  The engineering minds of the Egyptians depict this as the ‘double doors’ that opened to allow the ‘boat of Ra‘ (the solid core) to exit the planet, and carry the soul of the pharaoh ‘to the gods’.  The figure above is from the ‘papyrus of Queen Nejmet’.  The ‘Red Eye of Horus‘ at the right is waiting to be ejected by the two divine ‘cord holders’, powered by the two omphalos.  The pharaoh’s soul is seen standing on the Red Eye with his title spelled out by the beetle hieroglyph.  A number of underworld gods are attending the ‘launch’ of the solid core.  The text then describes the ‘eye’ zooming around the Earth to the East ‘like a falcon’ while the outer shell moved slowly to the west, drifting away from the Earth.  The core is described as rejoining the outer shell eight days later on the way to becoming an ‘imperishable star’. The rejoining is described as Pepi, imagined piloting the solid core, ‘he cleaves its firmament’ which was Mars, ‘on the eastern side of heaven’ (Mars outer shell).

It only remains to explain the physical details of the last step in the ejection of the solid core.  During each encounter the island, or duat, at the north pole from which this feature rose, was surrounded by the tidal ocean, the Egyptian Nun, which had formed at the beginning of each encounter. Due to the convulsions caused by the planetary alignments, a rapid-fire stream of huge bodies (ambhamsi)  were ejected thru the vent from which the column of smoke and fire rose, shattering the pillar and deepening the vent into the core of Mars.

At the end of each encounter the combined indirect tidal forces of the Sun, Moon and Venus, along with the ever-present direct tidal force of the Earth caused the northern ocean to overflow the northern island.

As a result, the ocean cascaded into the vent all the way into the liquid core of Mars, which had been partially evacuated by the long term ejection of rock from over a hundred volcanoes in its northern hemisphere.  The steam pressure which flashed when the water encountered the great temperature and heat within the outer core forced the solid core out of the side of the planet at its weakest point, through the enormous fault called the Valles Marineris.  When the core first appeared, it was seen as a single ‘eye of Horus‘ protruding through the surface, but as it continued outward it was seen as a separate body, Hathor, in Egyptian myth.

Mercury is Finally Manifest

Whirlpool at Mars’ North Pole

Evidence of the final cascading of the northern ocean into this vent is present in the shape of the north polar cap on Mars today.  It is obviously a whirlpool draining into the north polar vent on top of a 3 km rise – the remnant of the duat or firmament.

At the end of the last encounter of Mars with the Earth, 687 BC, the solid iron core failed to reunite with the outer shell as it had ninety-nine times previously, apparently deflected by the Moon.  The solid iron core, called Mercury in Roman myth (Hermes in Greek myth, Hathor in Egyptian myth, Sarama in the Rig Veda, the sun star in Hebrew), then interacted with Venus for for several hundred years, as evidenced in the date of figure below, until they

both settled into their current orbits.  In order that orbital angular momentum and energy be conserved, Mars had to then move outward in the solar system, while slowly collapsing in on its vacant interior, to form the diminutive ‘planet’ we call Mars, which, although old (4.6 Ba) does not have a solid core or a global magnetic field.

Unknown to planetary science, terrestrial planet magnetic fields originate in super-high pressure, superconducting materials, comprised of layered FeH in a planet’s solid core. This is evidenced by the axisymmetrical magnetic field measured still surrounding Mercury. The field is declining because the pressure of Mars overburden has been removed. (The offset of the magnetic field toward Mercury’s north pole is explained in another post.)

All of Mars’ life-supporting materials were blasted to the Earth, resurfacing our planet with more than 50 km of sedimentary rock and soil.  Ages determined from studying these fallen rocks (zircons or potassium & argon isotope ratios) are ages of Mars, which is 4.6 Ba while the original Earth is only 3.9 Ba. Many millions of rocks ejected from Mars during the  3,000 years, are the origin of all meteorites, meteor showers, near-Earth asteroids, short period comets, the lunar maria and are continually falling into the atmosphere of the Sun, producing the Fraunhofer absorption lines (currently thought to reveal the composition of the Sun).

The Surface of Mercury

The mass of rocks falling toward the Sun can be appreciated by the large number of small craters on the surface of Mercury. These rocks were blasted from Mars between 3687 and 687 BC and have fallen onto the surface of Mercury, mixing with the sulfur coating that it carried from Mars. The currently accepted view of Mercury is described in a recent paper as “Impact bombardment on Mercury in the solar system’s late accretion phase (ca. 4.4–3.8 Billion years) caused considerable mechanical, chemical and thermal reworking of its silicate reservoirs (crust and mantle.” and “We find that late accretion to Mercury induced volumetrically significant crustal melting (≤58 vol.%), mantle heating and melt production, which, combined with extensive resurfacing (≤100%), also explains why its oldest cratering record was effectively erased, consistent with crater-counting statistics.” The latter refers to the smooth areas between craters, which are the surface of Mercury as it was when it last left Mars in 687 BC.

James 1:5  If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. 

Galatians 6:1  Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.
