Welcome to a compilation of interesting Earth facts and theories.
Earth is a complex mixture of interdependent subsystems that sustain life. Systems have inputs and outputs. They operate under a set of energy balance rules that for the most part strive towards equilibrium. This section provides discussions of how Earth's ecosystem involves economics, politics and climate change including the "Great Reset" that is already in progress.
Our Sun in the Milky Way Galaxy began to form 4.6 billion years ago due to energy forces that collapsed a small part of a giant molecular (mostly hydrogen) cloud. When a critical mass was reached, nuclear fusion processes with gravitational properties accumulated more matter. As both mass and energy continued to increase, "clumps" of mass spun away from the Sun flattening into a protoplanetary disk.
The interior of Earth has four separate primary layers - the Inner Core, Outer Core, Mantle and Crust. Component materials inside Earth are not equally distributed. Earth's core is a mixture of iron and nickel with a net positive charge due to excess protons. A solid inner core is surrounded by a molten outer core. Its mantle has a net negative charge due to hydroxide (OH⁻) ions.
As the Cycle of Life continues to be over-taxed, earthquakes occur more frequently and release more and more energy. The number of earthquakes >7.0 in 2023 surpassed the 2022 total in less than 4-1/2 months. Earth is getting more active in dissipating energy that continues to build up not only in the atmosphere but also in under-ground iron and OH⁻ molecules from electrons being spewed from life forms on its surface.
Active volcanoes do not only pose a danger to life in their immediate proximity but they also spew greenhouse gases and volcanic ash into the atmosphere. On three different occasions, Boeing 747 aircraft lost all four of their engines when they inadvertently flew through nearly invisible ash.
Multiple sources provide energy in the form of electrons, protons and ionized particles between Earth's surface and the ionosphere. The electromagnetic field that surrounds Earth provides a pathway for a Global Electric Circuit during both fair weather and thunderstorm conditions. The Great Reset discussed in the Intro section may be more than achieving net zero carbon emissions. If the global electrical circuit becomes overloaded, there will likely be an energy balance event to reduce electron recycling.
Bioregulation is broadly defined as: "Any biological process that regulates something." Our brain-mind system interacts with Earth's electromagnetic energy field as do all lifeforms. A correlation table between Earth's energy frequencies and brain frequencies is provided. It appears that our daily wake and sleep cycles are orchestrated by Earth's energy frequencies.
Stanley Miller and Harold Urey conducted an experiment in 1952 that showed protein precursors to life can be synthesized by energy from the flow of electrons through a chemical mixture. The experiment is considered to be the classic experiment that validated the process for origin of life. It's defined as a natural event by which life arises from non-living matter, such as simple organic compounds.
The Cycle of Life presumes that electrons, carbon and oxygen are instrumental for the creation of molecules to support metabolism for all living organisms. Consumption of food causes electrons to be expelled from all living humans and animals. Electrons are returned to Earth's surface in the form of lightning. The intake of oxygen (breathing) adds carbon dioxide to the atmosphere when air is exhaled. Green leafy plants, primarily trees, process carbon dioxide absorbing carbon and recycling oxygen back to the atmosphere.
The amount of carbon in Earth's atmosphere regulates air temperature up or down due to its insulative properties. Carbon comes primarily from greenhouse gases, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and methane. Atmospheric quantities are often expressed in carbon dioxide equivalents (CO2eq) for gases other than CO2.
There's absolutely no doubt that Earth's climate is changing significantly due to human actions and inactions. A primary focus of environmental scientists and politicians is carbon in the form of carbon dioxide (CO2) in Earth's atmosphere that effects air temperature. There are multiple sources of carbon dioxide on Earth including all lifeforms, human and animal, that expel CO2 when they breathe.
The Amazon rain forest produces more than 20% of the world's oxygen supply. Sinkholes appear on the surface of Earth worldwide primarily due to loss of ground water. Ice that forms Antarctica contains seventy percent of all fresh water in the world. As strange as it sounds, Antarctica is essentially a desert. Canada has more lakes than the rest of the world combined. Angel Falls in Venezuela is the world's highest waterfalls at 3,212 feet.
