Jigsaw ContinentsSeptember 6, 2007
So if artificial gravity and self-organizing magnetic galaxies weren’t different enough I have something for everyone to chew on. I’m not even going to try and explain it. Just watch all of these videos. Watch every last one of them without scoffing. That’s a true test of character. If you’re going to laugh at anyone you might as well laugh at yourself. That’s what I did. Then try to explain and rationalize? No. It is okay to say “I don’t know”. That’s all I can say about the evidence Neal Adams presents. He also offers a scientific theory to explain this, called Prime Matter. He offers a different take on quantum physics. Seeing a pattern?
Besides the widespread evidence and cool looking videos there is another reason I decided this theory deserved mention. This site pointed out something that I had tried very hard to avoid. I still judge a theory based upon the quality of the presentation, not upon evidence. Neal Adams is a famous comic artist for titles like Batman, Tarzan and X-men. This means that he is already a highly skilled graphical artist and he can make movies that would be difficult for others. The truth is, I have seen this theory before. First in Steve Buren’s book “Physics and Geology of Earth” which shows up in my Reading List. It crops up several other places as well.
The difference is that Steve Buren had a very unfashionable presentation of a pixelated circle with continents scribbled on it. The idea that the Earth fit together into a smaller sphere interested me, but it was sandwiched between other outlandish theories that I thought could be easily proven wrong. I started writing a program to test whether or not a hollow planet would be gravitationally stable, but I didn’t get very far on it. I was dissuaded not by thorough testing, but by bad graphics. Then enters Neal Adams with rainbow colored morphing 3D graphics and all of a sudden the theory looks more credible. It’s a bias that I have to admit to and I think it affects everyone. How much does it affect you?
Further Comments: I felt sooo bashful writing this article. I don’t know why in regards to other articles I’ve written. Neal Adams basic premise is that all the continents on both sides of the Americas fit together perfectly. They fit together in a perfect sphere half the size of the current Earth. Therefore, Earth must have grown in the past, and is still growing. He explains this through what he calls Prime Matter (see link above) which basically predicts that gravitational bodies attract a kind of proto-matter which will take on the form of the matter that attracted it. This predicts that all large bodies should be growing. He’s got really good videos, and what looks like good evidence. I don’t know. My big question would be can we measure this kind of growth in the Sun, since the rate of growth is proportional to the mass, the Sun contains 99% of the mass in our solar system. Yes, it doesn’t show stretch marks, but Earth is supposed to have doubled in size in the last 180 million years. Wouldn’t the Sun do the same thing?
