ZetaTalk: Mountain Ranges
Note: written on Dec 15, 2001.
Mountain building during this coming shift will be in proportion to the compression any given range comes under. Those areas in the world where mountain building
has occurred in the past are obvious, as sheer rock is broken into cliffs or juts skyward like a missile or monstrous rocks are in a jumble. The rock is fresh, not
weathered and broken down, and often covered with trees or vegetation, soil having formed from the dust that lodges there. Often these are called new mountain
ranges or old ranges, to differentiate. Why would a new range become an old range, and how might this information help those seeking safe places during the
At one point in the Earth's history, the land mass was all in one clump, the Earth having been injured with a gaping wound where the Pacific is now, so that it
became lopsided. Water pooled in the low places, leaving the land all on one side. Repeated pole shifts jerked this land mass to and fro until weak spots tore and
the continental drift, or rip as we prefer to call it, began. Very old land shows less marks of mountain building and more hardened mud flats, but in the interim, when
the plates were separating, lava hardening in between, and then thrust against each other during forthcoming pole shifts, mountain building began.
- The Himalayas are a good example of a spot on the Earth where mountain building invariably occurs. These mountains are backed up against a solid old land
mass, with broken and smaller plates subducting under them at each shift. Thus, these are both old and new mountain, never escaping fresh
- The mountains lining the west coast of both North and South America are likewise never at peace, as they form the cutting edge of land being pushed into
the Pacific where the plates in the Pacific are being pushed under this edge. Each time the Pacific shortens, these ranges go through rock and roll, with new
mountain building occurring.
- The mountains on the east coast of both the North and South Americas are old mountains, with notably not volcanoes active and no stress toward mountain
building because the land to the east is being stretched, not compressed. These old mountains were built when the plates first separated and were bumping
against each other during those early periods. These times are past, for these lands masses, now.
- This is likewise the case within Africa, where the mountains are covered with trees unless to high to sustain vegetation and the only sign of stress volcanoes
caused by weak places make thin by the stretch of the land. African volcanoes, recently active, can be expected to erupt, but very ancient volcanoes will
not as the stress is less on this land mass now.
- The high deserts in Mongolia and the Urals in Russia are likewise not under stress, being too far inland to suffer subduction of plates, and not being
stretched. But where the land masses of Russia and Area front the Pacific Rim, volcanoes will erupt with great force. This will devastate land from the
Russian peninsula in the north through Japan to Indonesia in the south. Mountain building in these areas will not be noticed, as death will come from volcanic
hot ash and gas.
- The Mediterranean area is a weak spot in the plates, where movement has invariably occurred. During the times when the plates were separating, the Alps
were built, due to bumping between the plates on the move. As Africa is a very solid land mass, Europe invariably was the loser during this bumping,
creating the Alps. However, during this coming shift, the strong stretch of the Atlantic will pull Africa away from Europe, not a push toward. The volcanoes
in the Mediterranean will explode due to churning of the core, and an increased thinning in the crust. All mountains surrounding the area will not experience
strong mountain building, as a consequence.
