Re: Something Just Went BEZERK in the Gulf of Mexico. The US Navy just sunk a French Submarine
Okay, I've been quiet long enough... Think MAGNET folks...the closer it gets the more its going to pull it out of the ocean. Its fluffy and very magnetic what were looking upwards for.


Nibiru? - Electro magnectic Fluff Cloud?- Alien?

We need to just take our pick. I agree with you, There is a lot of chit going on thanks to power mongers and greedy children of the dark side, but whatever is causing the grave concern we all feel in our gut, and has TPTB running scared, is bigger than humans.

It is what the EMFC is flinging at us that we will see in a few weeks. And it will only continue to engulf our solar system from here forward. Its highly magnet(to say the least), its pulling at the earth and popping a lot of corks (oil wells, volcano's), pulling at the sea floor(sea floors rising). TPTB are only guessing at what might happen, and what to do about it....and of course the things they do will only make things worse for us "common" folks.


Complete nonsense.

What do you refer to as being 'magnetic'? What is this 'magnet' supposed to be attracting? Are you thinking of a 'gravitational pull' rather than magnetism?

Magnetic attraction. Use a magnet to test out the difference between real gold and pyrites. Pure gold does not contain iron, while pyrites does. Hence, a magnet will have no impact on real gold while a piece of pyrites will be attracted to a magnet since it contains iron.

Hmmmm nonsense....like if you sail across the ocean you'll fall off the edge of the world lol

No, its magnetism i'm referring to....and what could it be attracting? HHmmmm AU something.

um...ever tried to pick AU up with a magnet???

Correct, PURE gold in not has very little magnetism.

We are just moving into one... It may get worse, it may get better...but it will last for "tens to hundreds of thousands of years"...It ain't over let...

This link has some nice pics if you aren't into reading the info...

Snip:

The fact that the Fluff is strongly magnetized means that other clouds in the galactic neighborhood could be, too. Eventually, the solar system will run into some of them, and their strong magnetic fields could compress the heliosphere even more than it is compressed now. Additional compression could allow more cosmic rays to reach the inner solar system, possibly affecting terrestrial climate and the ability of astronauts to travel safely through space. On the other hand, astronauts wouldn't have to travel so far because interstellar space would be closer than ever. These events would play out on time scales of tens to hundreds of thousands of years, which is how long it takes for the solar system to move from one cloud to the next.

I saw that post... What I thought was interesting are what look like tracks going into or out of the dark crevice.

I think this is a really unusual shot, with a lot going on, and it is applicable to this thread. The tracks remind me of the areas of the ocean bottom where underwater volcanoes form, like out in the mid-Atlantic.


The tracks are interesting and it is unfortunate you cannot zoom in on this image as the real interesting part is the dark object veryobviously coming up out of the sea floor. I don't know how to send the image so that you can enlarge it but if you would send me instructions I would be happy to redo the photo.


I brought the pic into photoshop and added more resolutions, easier to see now.

[link to s898.photobucket.com]


Well done LFY.
That looks almost like something sliding off into the crevise, the tracks are in line with it and it looks as though it is falling (almost like a submarine)!
 Quoting: fairflight



Ok, I'm going to chime in on the photo from Google.

When interpreting the sea floor as shown in Goole Earth or almost any source you must be aware of what and how much data they used to create the image of the ocean floor you see.

lLet us talk about the history of the ocean floor surveys.

The early surveys, taken before sonar, were a system of dropping a weight on a line down to the ocean floor and reading how much line had been let out (sounding). Then you move a distance and do another sounding. tThis way, you get a overall general impression of the depth. In some area, you do the soundings closer, to increase the resolution, but you are still talking about a rather gross outline of the ocean floor. Many areas recieved sounding 20, 30, 50, and in the middle of the ocean, even hundreds of miles apart. Now this is made up of not just one survey, but surveys from many different times and governments.

So, you can see that if someone made a 3D map of the ocean floor at that time, it would be pretty vauge and formless with extremely low resolution. On top of that, the mapmaker has to use artistic license to smooth the points of data together to make a surface. We are talking resolution in miles.

The advent of depth reading sonar changed all that. Further surveys in different areas were conducted over the years, with the ship able to continue on a course and take ONLLY depth readings at intervals. The resolution improved, but taking the surveys was and still is a expensive proposition, and mostly done in navigable waters near a country that could afford it, or done by geologists in search of major geological features.

So, if you can imagine, you have a realatively low res, smooth ocean floor front the early surveys with the newer surveys layed on top. That is why in many areas it looks like someone made stiches or lines of holes in the ocean floor on the map. The holes or peaks are the new data layed over the old. Only because there is no other data for the old. T


The next technological innovation was side scan sonar. This allowed a ship to see a wide area of the ocean floor underneath and to the sides of it and to make a reasonably accurate image of the floor. If the ship sails back and forth along a grid pattern, sort of like mowing your lawn, it can get a good image of the floor over a large area.


That information is now layed over the old map and you have a good resolution picture of just that area, while everywhere else is a smooth surface marred by pockmarks and stiches from different surveys.

In the picture in uestion, the upper left side of picture was imaged with side-scan sonar. You can see the track lines of the ship. The smoother areas are areas of old data that has been faired together. The rough area extending diagonally from the upper left down to the lower right is just a area that the ship happened to do a one line track with side scan sonar.

It really is nothing odd. Sorry.
