Edgar Cayce's Pole-Shift Readings
Edgar Cayce is America's best documented psychic.
Before he died in 1945, he gave over 14,000 "readings,"
dealing with clairvoyant analyses of physical ailments and cures for
people, with the former lives of individuals (reincarnation was
assumed to be true for all), and a variety of spiritual and other
subjects. A small number of readings describe a pole shift, and
historically-unprecedented Earth changes to occur before the end of
Almost no research has been done on the sources of information
coming through Cayce for specific readings of interest. Gina
Cerminara (trained in general semantics and now deceased) made a
survey of Cayce's sources, as explained in the readings themselves.
She concluded that he had six sources: (1) the subconscious mind of
Cayce himself; (2) the subconscious minds of other individuals in
the Earth plane, (3) the subconscious minds of disincarnate entities
in the spirit plane, (4) the soul minds of higher masters, (5) the
akashic records, and (6) the Universal cosmic consciousness.
Many familiar with Cayce's readings assume there will be no pole
shift because, they say, none of Cayce's historically-unprecedented
Earth change predictions have been fulfilled. Before providing
information that contradicts this position, let's review the three
readings that together say - or imply - that a shifting of the poles
will occur sometime before the close of 2001.
Q What great change or the beginning of what change, if any, is
to take place in the Earth in the year 2000 to 2001 A.D.?
A When there is a shifting of the poles. Or a new cycle begins.
For, these [records] were to be kept as had been given by the
priests in Atlantis or Poseidia ... when the records of the race, of
the developments, of the laws pertaining to One were put in their
chambers and to be opened only when there was the returning of those
into materiality, or to Earth's experience, when the change was
imminent in the Earth; which change, we see, begins in '58 and ends
with the changes wrought in the upheavals and the shifting of the
poles, as begins then the reign in '98 (as time is counted in the
present) of those influences that have been....kept by those
sojourners in this land of the Semitic peoples. 378-16 (10/29/33)
As to the changes physical again:....There will be the upheavals
in the Arctic and in the Antarctic that will make for the eruption
of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and there will be a shifting then
of the poles -- so that where there has been those of a frigid or
the semitropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern
will grow. And these will begin in those periods in '58 to '98....
These readings predict a sequence of geophysical events, beginning
in 1958 to 1998, that culminate in upheavals in Earth's polar areas,
increased volcanic eruptions in the torrid areas, and then, a
shifting of the poles in 2000-2001. As indicated, one knows next to
nothing about Cayce's sources for these readings, but here is a
short list of events that fit with Cayce's 1958-1998 predictions.

The earth is home to two North Poles located in the Arctic region -
a geographic North Pole and a magnetic North Pole.
Geographic North Pole
The northernmost point on the earth's surface is the geographic
North Pole, also known as true north. It's located at 90° North
latitude and all lines of longitude converge at the pole. The
earth's axis connects the north and south poles, as its the line
around which the earth rotates.
The North Pole is about 450 miles (725 km) north of Greenland in
the middle of the Arctic Ocean - the sea there has a depth of 13,410
feet (4087 meters). Most of the time, sea ice covers the North Pole
but recently, water has been sighted at the exact location of the
If you're standing at the North Pole, all points are south of you
(east and west have no bearing). Since the earth's rotation takes
place once every 24 hours, if you're at the North Pole your speed of
rotation is quite slow at almost no speed at all, compared to the
speed at the equator at about 1,038 miles per hour.
The lines of longitude that establish our time zones are so close
at the North Pole, the Arctic region uses UTC (Coordinated Universal
Time) when local time is necessary at the North Pole. The North Pole
experiences six months of daylight and six months of darkness.
Magnetic North Pole
Located more than 1000 miles (1600 kilometers) south of the
geographic North Pole lies the magnetic North Pole at 78°18' North
and 104° West, southwest of Nunavut, Canada's Ellef Ringnes Island.
The earth's magnetic pole is the focus of the planet's magnetic
field and is the point that traditional magnetic compasses point
toward. Compasses are also subject to magnetic declination which is
a result of the earth's varied magnetic field. Each year, the
magnetic North Pole and the magnetic field shift, requiring those
using magnetic compasses for navigation to be keenly aware of the
difference between magnetic north and true north. The magnetic pole
was first determined in 1831, hundreds of miles from its present
The National Geomagnetic Program of Geological Survey of Canada
monitors the movement of the north magnetic pole and most recently
determined its precise location in 1994. They've determined that the
pole is moving at approximately 9 miles (15 kilometers) each year.
The north magnetic pole moves on a daily basis, too. Every day,
there's an elliptical movement of the magnetic pole about 50 miles
(80 kilometers) from its average center point.
Earth Losing its Balance Half a Billion Years Ago
Scientists discover that "evolutionary big bang" may
have been caused by Earth losing its balance half a billion years
PASADENA--Researchers at the California Institute of Technology
think they have solved part of the mystery of the "evolutionary
big bang" that occurred half a billion years ago. At that time,
life on Earth underwent a profound diversification that saw the
first appearance in the fossil record of virtually all animal phyla
living today. With relative evolutionary rates of more than 20 times
normal, nothing like it has occurred since. In a paper published in
the July 25th issue of Science, the Caltech group reports that this
evolutionary burst coincides with another apparently unique event in
earth history--a 90-degree change in the direction of Earth's spin
axis relative to the continents. Dr. Joseph Kirschvink, a geologist
at Caltech and lead author of the study, speculates that a major
reorganization of tectonic plates during latest Precambrian time
changed the balance of mass within the Earth, triggering the
reorientation. Thus, the regions that were previously at the north
and south poles were relocated to the equator, and two antipodal
points near the equator became the new poles.
"Life diversified like crazy about half a billion years
ago," says Kirschvink, "and nobody really knows why. It
began about 530 million years ago, and was over about 15 million
years later. It is one of the outstanding mysteries of the
biosphere. "The geophysical evidence that we've collected from
rocks deposited before, during, and after this event demonstrate
that all of the major continents experienced a burst of motion
during the same interval of time."
David Evans, a co-author on the paper and graduate student at
Caltech, notes that it is very difficult to make large continents
travel at speeds exceeding several feet per year; typical rates
today are only a few inches per year.
"Earth has followed a 'plate-tectonic speed limit' for the
past 200 million years or so, with nothing approaching the rates
needed for this early Cambrian reorganization." Evans said.
"Some other tectonic process must have been operating that
would not require the continents to slide so rapidly over the upper
part of Earth's mantle."
In fact, geophysicists have known for over half a century that
the solid, elastic part of a planet can move rapidly with respect to
its spin axis through a process known as "true polar
wander." True polar wander, Kirschvink explains, is not the
same as the more familiar plate motion that is responsible for
earthquakes and volcanism. While the latter is driven by heat
convection in Earth's mantle, true polar wander is caused by an
imbalance in the mass distribution of the planet itself, which the
laws of physics force to equalize in comparatively rapid time
During this redistribution, the entire solid part of the planet
moves together, avoiding the internal shearing effects which impose
the speed limit on conventional plate motions. (While his happens,
of course, the entire Earth maintains the original spin axis in
relation to plane of the solar system.) Thus, true polar wander can
result in land masses moving at rates hundreds of times faster than
tectonic motion caused by convection.
An analogy of the effect can be seen by cementing lead weights at
the antipodal (or opposite) ends of a basketball. If the ball is
then set on a slick floor and spun with the weights along the
equator, the ball will spin in a manner as one would normally
expect, with the weights remaining on the equator. If the ball is
spun on one of the lead weights, however, the axis of rotation will
tend to migrate until the weights are again on the ball's equator.
In this configuration, the spinning ball has aligned its maximum
moment of inertia with the spin axis, as required by the laws of
As for astronomical evidence that such a phenomenon can occur,
the authors point to Mars. Along the equator of the Red Planet is a
gigantic volcano known as Tharsis, which is known to be the largest
gravity anomaly in the solar system. Tharsis could have formed on
the equator, but more likely formed elsewhere on the planet and then
migrated to the equator via true polar wander because of rotational
torques on its excess mass.
Something similar must have happened to Earth, says Kirschvink.
At about 550 million years ago, 20 million years before the
evolutionary burst, one or more major subduction zones in the
ancient oceans closed down during the final stages of assembly of
the supercontinent of Gondwanaland, leading to a major
reorganization of plate tectonic boundaries.
Geophysicists have known for many years that this type of
reorganization could, in theory, yield a sharp burst of true polar
wander. In particular, if Earth were slightly "football
shaped," with a major and stable mass anomaly on the equator
and a more equal distribution of mass elsewhere, only slight changes
of the smaller masses would be needed to produce large motions. A
burst of motion up to 90 degrees in magnitude could even be
generated if the maximum moment of inertia (about which the planet
spins) became less than the intermediate moment (which is always on
the equator). The massive plate motions observed by the Kirschvink
group fit the predictions of this "inertial interchange"
event rather closely. Over the 15 million year duration of this true
polar wander event, the existing life forms would be forced to cope
with rapidly changing climatic conditions as tropical lands slid up
to the cold polar regions, and cold lands became warm. "Ocean
circulation patterns are sensitive to even slight changes in the
location of the continents," says co-author Robert Ripperdan, a
geochemist at the University of Puerto Rico and a Caltech alumnus.
"A progressive shift of this magnitude could cause oceanic
circulation patterns to become rather unpredictable, jumping from
one semi-stable configuration to another on a million-year time
scale. "Imagine the havoc which would result in Europe if the
Gulf Stream were to disappear suddenly.
These jumps offer an explanation for yet another unique mystery
of the Cambrian explosion, which is a series of nearly a dozen large
swings in the marine record of carbon isotopes. "Repeated
changes in global oceanic circulation patterns should ventilate
organic carbon buried in the deep oceans, producing these carbon
wiggles," Ripperdan says. "We used to think that they were
somehow due to repeated expansion and contraction of the entire
biosphere, but no one could think of a mechanism to do that. All of
the evidence suddenly makes sense with this true polar wander
But what caused the evolutionary burst? Kirschvink notes that
these global shifts in oceanic circulation will also act to disrupt
regional ecosystems, breaking them down into smaller, more isolated
"Evolutionary innovations are much more likely to survive in
a small, inbreeding population, rather than in large, freely
interbreeding groups," he notes. "And the carbon cycles
are telling us that major changes in ocean circulation happened
about every million years or so. That is certainly enough time for
natural selection to weed through the fragments left by the last
disruption, and to form new, regional-scale ecosystems.
"Then, Wham! They're hit again and the process repeats
itself. That is a great script for increasing diversity,
particularly as it seems to have happened shortly after the
evolution of major gene systems which regulate animal
The end result was that evolution proceeded nearly 20 times
faster than its normal rate, and the life of the planet diversified
into many groups still living today.
Kirschvink and his collaborators base their conclusions on data
collected from 20 years of work on numerous well-exposed sections of
the Precambrian-Cambrian and Cambrian-Ordovician eras. By studying
the weak fossil magnetism (paleomagnetism) left in many rocks as
they form using ultrasensitive superconducting magnetometers, they
can recover the direction of the ancient geomagnetic field. This
provides information concerning the direction of ancient north, for
the same reason that a small hand-held magnetic compass can be used
to find the approximate north direction today.
This remanent magnetism can also provide an estimate of the
ancient latitude in which the sediments were deposited, as the
inclination or dip of the magnetic field changes smoothly with
latitude--it points vertically at the poles and is horizontal
(tangent to the earth's surface) on the equator.
Therefore, the fact that magnetic materials are found pointing in
other directions is evidence that the ground itself has moved in
relation to Earth's magnetic North, which is locked over time to the
Geological samples collected by the Caltech group in Australia
(which has some of the best-preserved sediments of this age from all
of Gondwanaland) demonstrate that this entire continent rotated
counterclockwise by nearly 90 degrees, starting at about 534 million
years ago (coincident with onset of the major radiation event in the
Early Cambrian), and was finished sometime during Middle Cambrian
North America, on the other hand, moved rapidly from a latest
Precambrian position deep in the southern hemisphere, and achieved a
position straddling the equator before the beginning of the Middle
Cambrian, about 518 million years ago. Even the type of marine rocks
deposited on the various continents--carbonates in the tropics, and
clays and clastics in high latitudes--agree with these
paleomagnetically-determined motions. The paleomagnetic directions
are accurate within about 5 degrees, the authors write. Latitudes
are quite reliable, but because the poles moved so rapidly, even the
relative longitude between blocks can be determined. This true polar
wander analysis predicts a unique "absolute" map of the
major continental masses during this event, an animation of which
can be viewed at http://www.gps.caltech.edu/~devans/iitpw/science.html
"This hypothesis relating abrupt changes in polar wander to
evolutionary innovations could be tested in many ways," notes
Kirschvink, "as there are some interesting events in the
paleontological record during the following 200 million years which
might have been triggered by similar processes. "There's lots
of work to do."
Earth Crust Displacement
"In 1958 Charles Hapgood suggested that the Earth's crust had undergone repeated
displacements and that the geological concepts of continental drift
and sea-floor spreading owed their secondary livelihoods to the
primary nature of crustal shift. According to Hapgood, crustal shift
was made possible by a layer of liquid rock situated about 100 miles
beneath the surface of the planet. A pole shift would thus displace
the Earth's crust in around the inner mantle, resulting in crustal
rock's being exposed to magnetic fields of a different
"An earth crust displacement, as the words suggest, is a
movement of the ENTIRE outer shell of the earth over its inner
layers. If you remove the peel from an orange and then reattach it
to the fruit you can visualize the possibility of the peel moving
over the inner layers. The earth's crust, according to Charles
Hapgood, can similarly change its position over the inner layers.
When it does the globe experiences climatic change. The climatic
zones (polar, temperate and tropical) remain the same because the
sun still shines on the earth from the same angle in the sky. From
the perspective of people on the earth at the time, it appears as
the sky is falling. In reality it is the earth's crust shifting to
another location. Some land moves towards the tropics. Others shift,
with the same movement, towards the poles. Yet others may escape
such great changes in latitude.
The consequence of such a movement of the entire outer shell of
the earth is catastrophic. Throughout the world massive earthquakes
shake the land and enormous tidal waves crash into and over the
continental shelf. As the old ice caps leave the polar zones they
melt, raising the ocean level higher and higher. Everywhere, and by
whatever means, people seek higher ground to avoid an ocean in
Vavilov found a direct correlation between agricultural origins
and lands more than 4,920 feet above sea level.
"Working on the assumption that the earth's magnetic poles
are usually close to the poles of rotation, Hapgood collected
geomagnetic rock samples, finding evidence that the most recent
earth crust displacement must have occurred between 17,000 to 12,000
years ago. The North Pole would have moved from the Hudson Bay area
of northern Canada to it's current place in the Arctic Ocean. More
recently, Langway and Hansen (1973) gathered climactic data pointing
to a dramatic change in climate at 12,000 years ago. At that time,
the Pleistocene extinctions, rising ocean levels, the close of the
ice age, and the origins of agriculture all seem to
Using geomagnetic and carbon dating evidence, Hapgood identified the
locations of the pole and its paths as:
Position # 1 -- 63 degrees N, 135 degrees W (the Yukon area -
Position # 2 -- 72 degrees N, 10 degrees E (in the Greenland Sea -
Position # 3 -- 60 degrees N, 73 degrees W (the Hudson Bar area -
Position # 4 -- the current position
Earth Crust Displacement: Effects and Evidence
In his best-selling book Earth
in Upheaval, historian Immanuel
Velikovsky gave an account of what might be expected when the Earth
tilts on it's axis:
'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
'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.'
Neither Hapgood nor Velikovsky were pulling theories out of the
air. The theory that the terrestrial crust is swimming on magma was
first offered in the 1850's. The record of bones and trees, and
shells and layers of sediment that had been found throughout the
world pointed to one or more cataclysms in the Earth's past, some of
them as recently as 1,500 B.C.E. and amazingly, 800 B.C.E.
Velikovsky sums up the scientific establishment's past record on
answering the questions:
What caused tropical forests to grow in polar regions? What
caused volcanic activity on a great scale in the past and lava flows
on land and in the ocean beds? What caused earthquakes to be so
numerous and violent in the past? Puzzlement, despair, and
frustration are the only answers to each and every one of these
The theories of uniformity (or gradualism) and evolution maintain
that the geological record bears witness that from time immemorial,
even from the time this planet began it's existence only minute
changes - caused by the wind blowing on rocks, the sand grains
swimming to the sea - accumulated into vast changes. These causes
however, are inadequate to explain the great revolutions in nature,
and they evoke the expressions of futility on the part of the
specialists, each in his field.
Velikovsky continues with his account:
... The evidence is overwhelming that the great global
catastrophes were either accompanied or caused by shifting of the
terrestrial axis or by a disturbance in the diurnal and annual
motions of the Earth ... The state of lavas with reversed
magnetization, hundreds of times more intensive than the inverted
terrestrial magnetic field could impart, reveals the nature of the
forces that were in action ... Many world-wide phenomena, for each
of which the cause is vainly sought, are explained by a single
cause: the sudden changes in climate, transgression of the sea, vast
volcanic and seismic activities, formation of ice cover, pluvial
crises, emergence of mountains and their dislocation, rising and
subsidence of coasts, tilting of lakes, sedimentation,
fossilization, the provenance of tropical animals and plants in
polar regions, conglomerates of fossil animals of various latitudes
and habitats, the extinction of species and genera, the appearance
of new species, the reversal of the Earth's magnetic field, and a
score of other world-wide phenomena.
Look into any one of the above fields and you will begin to see
the same pattern Velikovsky, Hapgood, Einstein and hundreds of other
independent geologists, paleontologists and archeologists have
recognized in the Earth's past. A pattern of repeated, catastrophic
change thought to be brought about by crustal displacements
activated by one or more outside agents - such as passing comets or
fluctuations in the sun's own magnetic field - appears to have been
with humanity and its civilizations from the very dawn of mankind.
Rand and Rose Flem-Ath discussed earth-crust displacement' in
their book, When the Sky Fell. Seeing evidence of it in almost all
parts of the world they described it's effects and the consequences
for mankind today. The displacement that happened, according to them
at about 11,000 BC, had:
'... also 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 ...
And coral has been found in Newfoundland, ferns, fossils, coal
and fossilized tree-stumps have been found in Antarctica, water
lilies and fossilized palm leaves ten and twelve feet long have been
found in Spitzbergen, there is evidence that the swamp cypress
flourished within 500 miles of the North Pole in the Miocene epoch,
and more. The evidence is overwhelming that the Poles have not
covered the same parts of the planet for the entire extent of our
'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. Only
amongst the merchant marine and navies of the world might some
evidence of civilization remain. The rusting hulls of ships and
submarines would eventually perish but the valuable maps that are
housed in them would be saved by survivors, perhaps for hundreds,
even thousands of years. Until once again mankind could use them to
sail the World Ocean in search of lost lands ..."
That something such as this could have happened to the earth
seems, in our forward-looking culture of progress, somehow
unbelievable. We are not taught such concepts at school nor are we
brought up to think in this way. Suggesting that it could happen in
the future can earn everything from the epithet of 'prophet of doom'
to outright academic scorn. Nevertheless, look into the holy works
and records of the ancient civilizations and you will find
corroboration from what remains of the 'media' of their time, their
mythology, legends and folklore. Cataclysmic events on a global
scale did strike the civilizations of the ancients, and many
recorded it in the clearest and most intelligible ways they were
capable of at the time. The accounts survive to this day as myths of
Path of the Pole by Charles H. Hapgood is now available in paperback, as is
of the Ancient Sea Kings.
Charles H. Hapgood was a history professor who began, at the
prompting of some students, to look into the search for the lost
continent of Atlantis. That lead him to the ideas of Hugh Achincloss
Brown: that the entire earth could be made to be repositioned at a
radically new angle on its axis of rotation.
Hapgood realized that the entire planet did not have to be
repositioned around its axis. Only the outer crust need move, just
as the loosely peeled skin of an orange could be slid around the
unmoved inner slices. This line of thinking was published in Earth's
Shifting Crust (1958), in collaboration with James H. Campbell, a
Hapgood ultimately revised key parts of his thinking because his
calculations convinced him that the mass of the ice cap on Antartica
could not destabilize the earth's rotation.
Hapgood's thinking is expressed most clearly by Hapgood himself
That book was later revised and in 1970 republished as The Path
of the Pole by Chilton. In an introductory note, Hapgood said:
"Polar wandering is based on the idea that the outer shell
of the earth shifts about from time to time, moving some continents
toward and other continents away from the poles. Continental drift
is based on the idea that the continents move individually...A few
writers have suggested that perhaps continental drift causes polar
wandering. This book advances the notion that polar wandering is
primary and causes the displacement of continents....This book will
present evidence that the last shift of the earth's crust (the
lithosphere) took place in recent time, at the close of the last ice
age, and that it was the cause of the improvement in climate."
Hapgood then goes on to mention to two areas where he finds much
of his evidence, in data derived from studies of geomagnetism and
from carbon 14 dating.
Although he argued that such global disruptions happened
repeatedly, Hapgood by then was rejecting the idea that such
disruptions could happen quickly.
Based primarily on that technical data, he argued that each shift
took approximately five thousand years, followed by 20 to 30
thousand year periods with no polar movements. Also, in his
calculations, the area of movement never covered more than 40
The presence of a truly liquid layer between the core and the
outer crust would allow such slippage, moderated by inertial forces.
The Time/Space Dis-Continuum
An Article by Rich Anders
Dead animals cannot speak. Nonetheless, sometimes they tell a
story. Of all the ones that do there is one mammoth, which tells the
most remarkable of all. It is not the mammoth's size, which makes
this story so impressive. It is the story's uniqueness. There are
other animals involved in the same kind of story telling, but none
of them tells the story so crystal clear. The story itself is quite
the mammoth died a sudden death. Its body was deep-frozen
instantly. When the mammoth was found in the Siberian permafrost
region thousands of years later, its body tissue was so well
preserved that the sledge dogs very eagerly fed on it. In fact, the
mammoth's body had not decomposed at all as it was subjected to
freezing conditions in it's solitary grave.
There are many stories of mammoths roaming the glacial planes of
Europe and Siberia. I always wandered where these huge animals found
enough food to live on in a cold climate where but little vegetation
could exist. The Siberian mammoth finally gave an answer to this
baffling question that made sense: those planes were not glacial,
they were subtropical and in other more distant locations there was
steppe vegetation as proven by the most recent findings.
This mammoth had plants in its stomach and even in its mouth
undigested and very well preserved by the subzero temperatures. All
these were plants as found in a subtropical climate. - The plants
made this mammoth a scientific sensation. For if the mammoth lived
in a subtropical climate, how come it was deep-frozen so quickly as
not to decompose even a little?
The author lives in a subtropical climate. From experience one
knows that everything decomposes very fast under the impact of heat
and the sun's intense radiation. No dead organic matter can defy
these forces. It cannot be assumed that this dead mammoth would not
have reacted to these factors of a subtropical climate. Had it been
exposed to heat only for one day, the signs of beginning
decomposition would have been clearly visible. But there were none!
The only conclusion possible at all is: the climate must have
changed from subtropical to arctic in a very short time. It is this
very point of the mammoth's story, which makes it an utterly
Cataclysmic evolutionists made this mammoth one of their main
arguments in favor of their theories. All the others preferred to
overlook it or tried to explain this obvious conclusion away. And
yet, this mammoth proves very clearly: there must exist somehow the
possibility for the climate to change practically from one moment to
the next and very drastically so. For in this case it was not a
change of several degrees of latitude. This was a dramatic change,
which by its very nature shows it shifted the climatic zones over at
least a quarter of the globe. This, in turn, means that the poles'
locations had changed, too. It cannot have been a gradual change as
some cataclysmic evolutionists suggest; it must have been a change,
which took place in an instant. This point ads further spice to the
mammoth's story, for it is precisely this point which upsets many
orthodox scientific theories.
A very important question has to be answered: which forces were
able to cause such a dramatic change and were able to do so many
times in our planet's history? For if the poles can indeed jump,
then the signs of glacial activity all over the globe prove that the
poles have jumped many times. This fact also shows it is nonsensical
to assume that a. passing cosmic dust cloud was responsible for a
cooling of the planet at a specific time thus causing Glaciation.
Studies have shown that when on one side of the globe there was
extensive Glaciation, then on the opposite side the same was the
case. In between there were climates as they normally do occur in
between poles. Consequently, the so-called ice times are not
exceptional conditions of the entire globe; they just show where the
arctic and Antarctic regions were located at specific times of the
Europe's and North Americas ice times just tell us that one of
the poles was located somewhere in the area, which then was covered
by ice. It is not this articles purpose to repeat the arguments for
a cataclysmic evolution. There are enough publications dealing with
this topic and some are good enough to prove the point. Many have
discovered the evidence and presented it to the public. But the big
question still unanswered is the evidence of what? Which forces can
cause jumps of the poles in less than a day? Which principles are at
NASA's confirmed the notion that the universe is a gigantic
electromagnetic structure with the discovery that the gas planets'
systems of rings and moons are arranged along the lines of their
electromagnetic fields. Cosmically and physically speaking,
electromagnetism determines the location of matter and, therefore,
the location of the poles, as well. Hence, changes in a planets
electromagnetic structure are responsible when the poles jump.
Scientists at Leipzig University in Eastern Germany developed the
model that this planet is functioning like a gigantic dynamo. The
inner core with its content of heavy metals is the anchor, the
liquid magma works like a clutch and the lighter ores in the planets
crust act as the windings. The heavy core moves at a lesser speed
than the lighter crust of the planet. Metals and ores have magnetic
properties. As their field lines intersect, mechanical energy is
converted into electric energy; the planet is charged up
electromagnetically! Thus, the planet builds up its own
electromagnetic field. But the Leipzig study has more to it; it
proves that the system is highly unstable.
It is known that electromagnetic fields can change polarity.
Consequently, this applies to a planetary electromagnetic field, as
well. The ridges on the ocean floors bear witness to this statement.
Those ridges were formed one after another during major cataclysms
that struck this planet. The direction of the magnetic particles in
the ridges' lava shows that these major cataclysms were accompanied
by shifts of the poles' locations. A ridge builds up as lava flows
out on to the ocean floor. As the lava cools down the magnetic
particles in it become stabilized in their respective locations.
Therefore, measurements of the directions of the magnetized
particles enclosed in the ridges' lava show the location of the
poles at the time when the lava cooled down. Measurements of the
magnetic particles included in the various ridges' lava by the
research vessel Glomar Challenger show that the direction they point
to changed diametrically at least 170 times in the last 70 million
There exist studies claiming that these dramatic exchanges of the
poles' locations as shown in the lava depict only the major
cataclysms and that there is compelling evidence that lesser
dislocations of the poles have taken place as well in great numbers.
Therefore, the question must be: why do poles change their locations
at all and why so often?" Since the electromagnetic field of
the planet must determine such changes, the question must further
be: "what causes such dramatic changes in the planetary
Electromagnetic forces determine the location of a planets poles
and the configurations of planetary systems. To state this very
clearly: the planets, the moons, the rings of matter, the asteroid
belt as well as comets and meteors; everything within the solar
family owes its respective cosmic location to the force of
electromagnetism. If the location of a planets poles and its orbit
is determined by its electromagnetic role in the concert of cosmic
bodies within the Solar System, what happens when something changes
drastically in its electromagnetic structure?
An electromagnetic field forms according to the factors, which
contribute to it. If these factors change the electromagnetic field
changes accordingly. This means that adding or discharging energy
changes a planet's energy potential resulting in a different
electromagnetic field. Such changes in energy can diminish or
strengthen the electromagnetic field locally and, thus, produce a
different configuration. This field determines the location of the
poles. So, when the electromagnetic field changes enough the
locations of the poles change, as well. Therefore, an addition or
discharge of energy and local changes in the strength of the field
are the logical explanation for a shift of the location of a
planet's poles. It can also be the explanation for a change of
orbit! - At first sight, this seems a far out claim. But the laws of
electromagnetism are the same for small and big bodies of matter.
A planets orbit is determined by the same principles as an
electrons orbit: by its charge, which allocates to the planet an
orbit within the solar systems electromagnetic structure.
Consequently, it is logical to assume that planets can indeed change
orbits when their charge of energy changes sufficiently.
At this point several questions arise: "how can such
dramatic events take place? What can change a planets
electromagnetic charge so dramatically that major changes in a
planets electromagnetic structure occur?
When an electron receives or releases a photon its energy
potential changes and it jumps orbit. Planets receive energy from
collisions with cosmic bodies like hits by a comet or a meteor.
Planets release energy in volcanic eruptions. In either case if the
change in a planets electromagnetic charge is significant a jump of
the poles or even an orbit jump can take place. This is confirmed by
reports from the distant past. The Maya and the Chinese claimed that
after a major natural disaster the sun appeared smaller and the moon
appeared bigger. This was possible only if the distances between the
Earth and the Sun respectively the moon had changed in the course of
such an event.
Now the question arises: how does matter experience these
energetic processes? The Siberian mammoth gives us a very short span
of time for matter to follow energy's lead. The material evidence
allows less than a day for a jump of the poles and movies show how
I always liked those movies where the hero is in terrible danger
but manages to escape. The next scene shows the same man with the
damsel saved from distress. Happy end.
I do not imply that Mother Nature imitates Hollywood. But let's
visualize how a movie is made: it is the quick succession of
pictures each of which shows a little progress as compared to the
preceding one. These pictures follow so rapidly that the eye sees
only the consecutive action. Unless there is a cut one cannot see
the single pictures change. The cut from the scene with the hero in
danger to the scene of the happy ending, however, shows that the
whole movie consists of single pictures rapidly succeeding one
To behave according to this example a material dimension has to
consist of tiny particles oscillating between the phases of energy
and matter so rapidly that we perceive matter as a stable material
dimension. Only a cut would dramatically remind us that the
stability of matter is but an illusion. We then would realize that
we do not exist in a time/space continuum but in a time/space
There are rumors dating back to ancient times that matter is
indeed made up of tiny particles, too small to be perceived as such
and following one another so rapidly that we experience matter as
seemingly stable. Such concepts of the ancient Harappans in the
Indus Valley and of the Greek philosophers of antiquity did not
stand much of a chance to be taken seriously by Western scientists.
Not even the discovery of the atom, which vindicated ancient Greek
knowledge, did make much impression. So, a few learned men were
genuinely surprised when the oscillation of matter between the
stages of energy and matter was discovered at Heidelberg University
in Germany. And yet, this finding was much more than the vindication
of knowledge from ancient times.
The discovery that matter oscillates between the stages of matter
and energy is of absolutely highest importance. Add to this the
latest theories about the quantum vacuum and we have the basis for
explaining fundamental changes in the material realm, which are
caused by the changes in the electromagnetic structure of a planet
or of the Solar System. So let's deal with a change in the charge of
a planets energy in terms of these oscillating particles that
A planet experiences a change of its charge of energy in an
energy phase. As there is no time in the realm of energy this
adjustment takes place instantly and creates a new energy situation;
The next matter phase is formed already with the adjusted energy
situation in existence. From then on the planetary movie goes on
without any cuts until the next adjustment of the planetary energy
situation. But what exactly happened in the energy phase of the
change and the following matter phase, which was formed with a
changed electromagnetic field?
An addition or a discharge of energy changes the contributing
factors to a planets electromagnetic field but the changes are not
uniform all over the planet. When the distribution of
electromagnetic energy over the planet changes a dramatically
different electromagnetic field can appear from one moment to the
next. Since the adjustment to the new energy situation takes place
in a single energy phase, which produces a different electromagnetic
field in the next matter phase, a jump of the poles takes place in a
fraction of a second as it takes no time at all.
This means that just like electrons planets experience jumps of
their poles and possibly even of their orbits in a split second, for
energy is not subjected to the limitations of space and time. Such
jumps take place during the energy phase while the entire planet is
energy as it exists in the so-called quantum vacuum. In the quantum
vacuum there is no time, no space and everything is interrelated.
Thus, a planet experiences a jump of the poles or changes over to a
new cosmic location in the energy phase, which experienced the
discharge or the addition of energy. After this dramatic energy
phase the planet appears in its next matter phase with a new
location of its poles and possibly even in a new cosmic location,
the one it belongs to because of its new electromagnetic field and
new electromagnetic charge.
One might ask how time fits into the picture. Time is a function
of the oscillation of matter, which continuously produces tiny units
of time as the matter phases appear one after another. Time is not
constant. When matter oscillations appear more frequently within a
specific frame of movement time passes faster, for instance, when
matter moves through space at a relatively slow rate. When matter
oscillations appear less frequently within a specific frame of
movement because it is moving at high speed through space time
passes more slowly. There is this famous example of the rapidly
accelerating space ship whose crew ages more slowly than the
inhabitants of the planet it left behind. - Einstein's theory of
relativity provides the scientific explanation. Therefore, as polar
shifts and jumps of orbits take place in the energy phase time is
not a factor.
To sum up: the locations of a planets poles and its orbit are
determined by its electromagnetic charge. Therefore, a new very
different electromagnetic field can indeed bring a different
location of the poles and possibly even in a new orbit for a planet
resulting in a new material dimension.
Matter follows energy's lead!
A sudden shift in the poles' locations triggers major cataclysms.
As the rotational plane changes the planet's matter is subjected to
the forces of inertia reacting to this change. The water in oceans
and lakes suddenly are moved in a different direction. The water is
piled up and tremendous waves pound the coastlines. Ancient legends
tell of floods, which reached hundreds of miles into continents
destroying everything in their paths. The Biblical Flood and the
Great Flood mentioned in the Epic of Gilgamesh for sure were caused
by such an event. Legends from South America tell of a time, when
ocean waves piled up more than a mile high on the western edge of
The atmosphere from one moment to the other is moved in a
different direction while inertia keeps the air in its previous
path. Hurricanes and tornadoes pale in comparison to the forces of
winds unleashed in this scenario. The areas water can't reach are
hit hard by storms, which can reach wind speeds of hundreds of
The sudden shift in the rotation of the planet breaks open the
Earth's crust and lava flows cover wide areas. There is evidence,
for instance in the Columbia plateau that such lava flows can extend
and have extended over the low lands of entire continents.
Continental shelves slam into ocean floors. New mountain ranges form
and existing formations are forced high up. The Andes in South
America are a very good example of such events, which explains sandy
beaches and sea shells thousands of feet up. The same situation is
found in the Alps, where seashells and fossilized sea creatures are
found high up together with sandy beaches - and this in the middle
of a continent. Many volcanoes erupt and spew huge amounts of dust
high into the atmosphere.
The climate all over the planet changes at the moment of the jump
of the poles. Depending on the new location of the poles tropical
lands can become deep frozen in an instant, as the deep temperature
and raging ice cold winds tear the warmth out of everything in the
new polar region. Other climatic zones change in an instant
according to their new location.
There is ample evidence of polar jumps all over the planet, as
traces of Glaciation are found everywhere. The impact of these
events on biological organisms is devastating. Not only is the loss
of life horrendous. If a jump of the poles is accompanied by an
orbital jump the temperature range of the entire planet will change.
Species not suited to live in this range will be wiped out.
This explains why in the course of the Earth's history sometimes
up to 90 percent of the species were wiped out. - The Perm, Trias
and the Jurassic extinctions are well-documented examples.
But extinctions did not happen only in remote geological times.
The last one wiped out the mammoths, the mastodons, saber tooth
tigers and other so-called ice age animals only several thousand
years ago. Fossil remains and geological evidence proof beyond the
shadow of a doubt that the cycles of creation, evolution, and
destruction are part of this planet's history. Life as such has
survived all these cataclysms but there is no way telling which life
forms will survive such a brutal scenario.
There is evidence of polar jumps during the last 50,000 years
after humans had appeared on the fossil record. Humans survived
where other species died out. It remains to be seen how humans will
fare when the next jump of the poles takes place.
