Secret Influence of the Moon, 4




The Mystery Deepeneth



pp.105-6 recording a moonquake


“triggering an artificial moonquake. The experiment … had been planned all along … . … The seismometers … picked up reverberations that lasted for three hours … . The Moon, according to NASA, “reacted like a gong.” …


The records are utterly different from any observations on the Earth,” commented one scientist. … Another geophysicist … : “None of us has seen anything like this on Earth. …”” 

{A gong is composed of compactly solid metal. The Earth’s core, on the contrary, is composed of liquid (molten metal, heated by radioactive uranium’s nuclear-fission energy), which is therefore unable to reverberate in a solidly metallic gong-like fashion.}


p. 106 Moon possibly cavern-riddled

"In his book Our Moon (1958), the famous British astronomer Hugh Percy Wilkins (1896-1960) offers an explanation for the Moon's low density ... . He explains [p. 120], "It thus appears that hidden from us are extensive cavities, underground tunnels and crevasses ... ."

Wilkins envisioned the Moon's interior as follows :

[quoted] The cavernous interior of the world within the Moon must be a strange place. Immersed in ... absolute silence, the walls ... studded with numerous crystals, these gloomy caverns, branching and winding, ... may contain surprises ... for space-travellers ... ."


p. 108 Mars's satellite Phobos

"Phobos ... Much of its surface is covered in remarkably linear groves ... . ...

One of the strangest features on the surface of :Phobos is its "monolith." This massive, bright piece of rock justs out from the surface in an extremely perpendicular fashion, casting a prominent shadow."


pp.112-3 moonquakes


Moonquakes recur again and again in the same locations at the same time of the month, which seems to link them to the monthly tidal cycles ... . These specific regions of recurrent seismic activity, which ... consistently produce identical seismograph recordshave become known as "nests," and ...


as ... for the depth of shallow moonquakes, ... they occur "near the crust-mantle boundary.""


p.114 requirements for maintaining a vibration

“in a NASA article about moonquakes the Moon is compared to “a big chunk of stone or iron.” Because of this, states the article, “moonquakes set it vibrating … .”

I don’t see how the same can apply to “big chunk[s] of stone or iron,” unless they happen to be hollow.” {To the contrary, hollowness will quickly suppress reverberation!}

{Any solid object, if suspended so that its vibration is not squelched, will maintain a vibration if struck. The Moon is suspended in space. (Hollowness is not at all necessary for vibration : gongs are never hollow, yet, when struck, vibrate as well as do bells -- and bells are not really hollow, either.)}


p. 115 moonquakes while facing in the direction of constellations Leo-and-Cancer

"In a study conducted by Cliff Frohlich and Yosio Nakamura of the Institute for Physics at the University of Texas, a curious link was discovered between the occurrence of moonquakes and the constellations Leo and Cancer.

{As for the mythology : the meaning of \Leo[n]\ is 'lion' : pertient, therefore, would be the Nemean Lion (mentioned on p. 168 as given-birth-to by moon-goddess Selene). Associations of crabs (which is the meaning of \Cancer\) with the moon are mentioned by Mircea Eliade, among other authors.}

Specifically, ... shallow moonquakes ... occurred while the affected area of the Moon's surface was facing Leo and Cancer."

{As for the directionalization : only in crystals is direction-of-facing able to determine the substance's peculiar benaviour -- this would imply that the crystals are aligned vertically in order to respond to radiation transmitted to them from a transmitter located in the sky directly above them (at their zenith).}

{Most evidently, the antient Hellenic theologians were aware that moonquakes occurr when facing the constellation Leo; much as the antient Hellenic theologians were aware that in constellation Kentauros (which is pointing its arrow so as to indicate something in that direction) there is a feature (namely, the Great Attractor), similar to the feature (namely, the Milky-Way Galaxy's quasar) which is in the constellation Sagittarius (which is likewise pointing its arrow so as to indicate something in that direction).}


p.121 mas[s]-con[centration]

"the origin of the Moon's maria, ... the strange concentrations of mass -- mascons -- that lie at the center of some of them."

{Each such "mascon" must be the body of the asteroid which, by impact, created that "mare".}

{"But its surface has been periodically bombarded with different sizes of meteorites and asteroids. During the initial period of lunar evolution, such giant meteor impacts resulted in the creation of flatlands or lunar basins. The regions not affected by these giant impacts are the lunar highlands." ("Ch-1I", p. 10)}


pp. 123-4 asteroid-impacts as implacements {facilitated by the collective Cosmic Intelligence and arranged by the co-operative Spirit of the Moon} of moon-protecting studs so as to redinforce the lunar crust

p. 123

"the lunar maria ... represent ... that the Moon is an artificially {i.e., in accord with the wills of hordes of praeternatural entities} modified world. Whenever I look at these vast, dark splotches that cover nearly a third of the Moon's near side, I am very much reminded {i.e., am in awe of how} ... These patches of rough, metal-rich basalt are located exactly where they ought to be in terms of providing the Moon with


reinforcements for its crust. ...

{Such "reinforcements" are alike unto [Skt] kavaca ('chainmail'), whereas the "crust" itself is alike unto plate-armor, which is why the Old English \hla`f-weard\ (> \lord\), litterally 'loaf-warden', is the custodian of armor-storage facilities in a mediaeval European castle.}


Without them, sections of the Moon's "hull" would be very thin indeed. Given that

p. 124

the far side crust of the Moon is a good deal thicker than the near side crust ... . ... This especially tough half of the Moon would require little maintenance."


pp. 124-9 radioactive lunar terrain

p. 124

"That technologically advanced beings {such as, svart-a`lfar/myrk-a`lfar} placed radioactive elements inside the Moon {which is known to be the residence Hju`ki and of his sistre Bil} ... is not outside the realm of possibility."

p. 125

"a third type of lunar terrain : the Procellarum KREEP Terrane, or PKT for short. ... The PKT is ... so named because of its high concentrations of thorium and other radioactive ... elements, including potassium

p. 126

(chemicals symbol K), and uranium. The "P" stands for phosphorus and the REE stands for rare-earth elements. ...

Another thorium "hot spot" is the region in which lies the mysterious Compton-Belkovich volcano feature."

p. 127

"During its twenty-month lunar orbit, the Japanese spacecraft Kaguya detected uranium on the surface of the Moon by using its gamma-ray spectrometer."

p. 128

"Three times more abundant in the Earth's crust than uranium, the vast majority of thorium ... is the isotope thorium-232. Although not directly fissile itself, meaning that it cannot sustain a nuclear fission reaction, it can be converted into thorium-233, which is fissile. ...

Amazingly, traces of the rare radioactive isotopes uranium-236 and neptunium-237 were discovered in Moon rocks ... . ... The lunar samples were found to contain the isotope [uranium-236] in much greater abundance than the Earth samples, by a factor of ... 350 times. ...

p. 129

The most stable of all neptunium isotopes -- the one with the longest half-life -- is neptunium-237. ... In a 1972 article that appeared in The Deseret News, titled "Moon Rock Analysis Uncovers 'Unearthly' Pair," we find the following explanation : "Scientists said the presence of neptunium and the unusual amounts of uranium-236 are probably due to solar flare which bombard the Moon with atomic particles, causing the necessary nuclear reaction.""


p. 130 Mimas

"Mimas {(DCM, q.v.) which is named for the gigant- upon whom "red-hot projectiles" are hurled by Hephaistos}, the smallest and innermost of Saturn's major moons, discovered by William Herschel in 1789 ... is a heavily cratered object ... with a diameter of only 250 miles. ... Higher-resolution photographs ... obtained by Cassini-Huygens in 2005 ... revealed ... on the surface of Mimas : a colossal crater measuring 80 miles in diameter and 6 miles deep. Named Herschel, it has a prominent central peak and is recognized as one of the largest impact structures in the solar system relative to the size of the body on which it exists.

Because its diameter is almost a third of that of Mimas, Herschel stands out like a giant eye."

{The "eye of MI`MIr" is (according to the Edda) kept hidden in the water-well of Mi`mir.}


p.132 "bulge" on far side of Moon {is this the compraehensive far-side feature enclosing the "largest known impact basin" located therewithin?}

"there is a "crustal bulge" on the far side of the Moon positioned in line with the Earth." {This may be the result of an asteroid-impact, burying the asteroid in the Moon's far-side in such a fashion as to leave a discernable "bulge" there.}

{Contrast "the South Pole-Aitken Basin, on the Lunar far side, currently the largest known impact basin in the solar system. It was excavated by a large impact." ("Ch-1I1", p. 18, Figure) -- Cf. SIM, p. 125}}

"Ch-1I1" = "Chandrayaan-1 : India's First Scientific Mission to Moon". 


p.133 how the far-side bulge is "supported"

"In addition to the nmystery of how the Moon came to acquire its far side bulge, there is a mystery o how it mananges to support it. "This bulge ... must be supported by some curious internal characteristic of the Moon, such as the great strength of its interior ...," observed Urey in 1962."

{This is easily explained by the mode of how the Earth is able to "support" mountains : mountains actually all are composed of relatively low-density rock, so very lightweight that they float atop the rock underlying them, being buoyed up similarly as low-density icebergs float on the top of the higher-density seawater.}

{Evidently the asteroid whose collision with the Moon created the "South Pole-Aitken Basin" was composed of quite-lightweight rock, perhaps a compound of lithium or that ilk.}


p. 135 former praesence of a Martian magnetosphaire

"red planet by the Mars Global Surveyor. The patches served as evidence that it possessed a global magnetic field ... up until about four billion years ago. ... Without a magnetosphere to protect it, a planet's atmosphere gets stripped away by the solar wind. And this, it would seem, was what happened to Mars. There is every indication the thin Martian atmosphere was previously more substantial."


p. 135 former praesence of a lunar magnetosphaire

"Rocks that form in the presence of a magnetic field contain a record of the strength and orientation of the field ... . In the case of the Apollo samples, some of them were found to be highly magnetized, indicating that they formed in the presence of a strong, steady field."


pp. 135-6 pockets of lunar magnetism

p. 135

"During the Apollo era, [artificial] satellites were used to measure the Moon's

p. 136

magnetism from lunar orbit ... . Discovered across the surface of the Moon were numerous "pockets" of magnetism. Some of the localized regions measured as broad as 62 miles ... .

Decades later came Lunar Prospector, and with it ... The strongest magnetic fields were detected on the Moon's far side. For reasons unknown, these fields happened to be located directly opposite a number of impact basins on the lunar near side; namely, Imbrian, Serenitas, Crisium, and Orientale. ...


Associated with some of the Moon's strongest regions of magnetism are deeply mysterious markings called called "swirls," ... named as such because they resemble the swirling patterns that form when milk is poured into coffee. ... According to one theory ...


the swirls were left behind by cometary impacts."

{If such comets were rotating swiftly on account of being electrically active (via ionically-charged emissions) while plunging into a strong magnetic field, they could leave a swirling impact-impression.}


pp. 137-8 lunar-core alternating rotatory agitation activated by gravitational tugs

p. 137

"It's been suggested that the Moon's outer core (which may still be molten today) was stirred, so to speak, by strong gravitational tugs from the Earth.

p. 138

This supposedly involved a back-and-forth kind of stirring, such as the type produced by a coffee stirrer, whereby the Moon's solid mantle was rotated against its core." {This could make for an alternating electrical current capable of dynamo-style effect.}

{This is the same type of directionally alternating (shifting between clockwise and counterclockwise) ascribed (in Pauran.ik mythology) to the churning rotation of mt Mandara while the body of the serpent Vasuki, coiled around said mt, was being alternating tugged in opposite directions by a team of deva-s and a team of asura-s.}


p. 138 double-layered (core + mantle) alternating-current lunar-dynamo system orbiting within the Roche limit

"There is a theory that states the Moon acquired its magnetism from the magnetic field of the Earth when the two bodies were closer together ... . ... Experts have pointed out that for the Moon to have been magnetized by Earth in this way, the two bodies must have been extremely close -- ... within the Roche limit.

The Roche limit ... refers to "the minimum distance to which a large satellite can approach its primary body without being torn apart by tidal forces." ...

A spaceship Moon with a double-layered hull could theoreticallt orbit the Earth well within the Roche limit without being torn apart by Earth's gravity."
