Second part: the cycle of matter


Journey through the eras

(1) Surrounding each new star, the celestial bodies are working to prepare the coming of men who are the abodes of God. This was the case in solar family, in which the Earth made some to-ing and fro-ing which fashioned its face, which is the one of a beautiful young woman well shaped in size and aspect. Having given birth to the world, it has given birth to a son, and will give birth to all its children behind to it. It is to protect this world that Mars and Venus, its servants, have for mission today to occupy the regions of the sky where the Earth should no longer go; because the temperature prevailing in their neighborhood doesn't allow the cycle of water of which depends the manifestation of life.

(2) Regarding the Earth and the awakening of the Son, who is Peter, the Scripture reports:

He became hungry (hungry for truth), he saw heaven opened and something like a large sheet being let down to earth by its four corners. It contained all kinds of four-footed animals, as well as reptiles and birds. Then a voice told him: Get up, Peter, kill and eat. This happened three times, and immediately the sheet was taken back to heaven.

I am Peter. And at the time when I was experiencing this hunger, I grasped these words which helped me to rise. This sign could not remain an enigma for me because, heaven being revealed to me, I understood the world and what I should accomplishing to build the ark according to its three levels and to save what should not perish. But this large sheet on which the world is represented, is today called: world map. This is the planisphere and its four cardinal points to which it is attached. Well, we will observe this sheet of world in all eras, to get an overview of earlier times, until this day. For that, let's use once again the figure of the comings and goings of the Earth.

The geological eras
53 - The geological eras

(3) These displacements show us the changing climate of the eras, and what were the conditions of life during these climate changes. This way, we can see appearing the species corresponding to those times, then imagine them regressing and disappearing when their living conditions were going away. What was until the quaternary (the sixth day) when this time the Earth stabilized in a climate favorable to the existence of mankind. Let's examine the essential of what has been since the illumination of the Sun.

The precambrian

(4) The precambrian was first era formed by the displacement of the Earth which went away in the distant, blown by the breath of the atmospheric explosion. But except the solar nebula which abundantly watered the ground and the separation of waters, nothing substantial occurred on the geological plan. Our planet, slightly smaller than it is today, was almost completely covered with fresh water. Very few plots were emerged. Consequently, the vegetation and the first beings were uncommon in these beginnings. Also the rocks of this period delivered only some rare vestiges of these first organisms, produced by the fresh water, which appeared according to the simplicity of the conditions of life at the moment. They had also only a short time of existence, as the Earth quickly went away in the cold of the first glacial period, which was not conducive to life. This was the second day that God created.

The first glacial period

(5) Going away from the Sun, the Earth eventually stabilizes in the distant, where it was cold. This glacial period is to be heard from the point of water glaciation at the equator till the fusion of ice on this same equator, and at a temperature descending much lower than the glaciation point or water melt. The truth is, a glacial period begins as soon as the Earth leaves the region of the sky where the temperature is favorable to the cycle of water, and until it returns to this region. Its culmination point is given by the orbit which is the farthest from the Sun. On this orbit and because of the distance, the Sun seemed smaller than we see it today. And it was very cold, perhaps four to six times more than at the poles nowadays.

(6) Here, on these distant orbits of the precambrian end, the water remained frozen from one pole to the other on a great depth. During this long period, the low temperature reaches the deep layers of the coat which had already began to move. The emergence of the continents was then undertaken and was going to last, because a glacial period is a moment of great activity.

The primary

(7) Let's leave the culmination point of the first glacial period and let's enter into the primary. We observe that this era is inverted in relation to the previous one because, approaching the Sun, the Earth goes this time from the lowest to the highest temperature. The snake shows that the first lands emerged at the beginning of this era, because of the cold which had eventually reached the deeper and warmer layers of the coat. This emergence was made first by rapid shrinkages in the beginnings (like a man on the run), then has subsided gradually as the Earth approached the Sun.

(8) Because of this and when the Earth evolved again in the region of the sky where we are, large areas of continental lands had already emerged. There were no high mountains in the primary, but only plots slightly exceeding the waters and sometimes forming large rounded folds on which appeared a few hills and some plateaus. These folds of the ground became for the most part mountain ranges in the early tertiary, when the resumption of the shrinkages.

(9) But during this first half of the primary, the lava was coming up easily along the fissures and filled them up. Certainly, the gases were also erupting, but quietly, because they didn't meet great difficulties. This volcanism was not yet propitious at the origin of the formation of small volcanic islands that we find today in the form of rosaries along the original faults, became then dorsals, amongst which some emerged. No, it is more likely that in the primary these fault lines, scatters today with volcanoes and mountains, were only cracks filled by lava.

(10) Thus at the beginning of the primary, the more or less hilly plots resembled to some vast ploughed fields. But then, when the Earth entered in the region of the sky where the temperature is favorable to the cycle of water, came the rain. And these magnificent plots covered themselves with grass and all kinds of plants. Because of the wealth of moment and the slightly lesser weightiness, this vegetation was luxuriant. There was no desert in those days. Everything was green on the Earth, to the poles become temperate and where the ice eventually disappeared completely. And it is this immense and plentiful vegetation which then became coal, as the solar temperature was high at the end of this era, where we necessarily find the carboniferous period.

(11) Such was the primary. But, as it was said, the first emerged continents had no relief or configuration as those nowadays. Nevertheless, it was an important moment of the vegetal reign which also saw some creatures somewhat different from previous, also more numerous, but still very simple in their organism. Produced by water, these beings existed in the sea which was slightly salted because of the terrestrial electromagnetic activity. But they also existed on lands exposed to the Sun on which it rained abundantly in the second period of the era. There were many lakes, ponds, some streams, and also a lot of rains, similarly to tropical rains. Everything was beautiful from one end to the other of the small continents. The primary in this regard was a jewel under the Sun, a green and blue jewel. It was the third day that God created.

The unique period of high temperature

(12) During the primary, the Earth got closer to the Sun which gradually restrained its movement, and it settled into a lower orbits. The temperature on the ground increased accordingly and became maybe four - six times superior to that of the equator nowadays. All basins water having evaporated, the atmosphere was giant. There wasn't obviously any ice left at the poles. The ground was dry and very warm. The gigantic atmosphere was cyclonic, and ceaselessly crossed by enormous flash of lightning. It rained constantly. At that time, the Earth became like a boiler and the ground was littered with coal. The thick clouds hid the Sun. It was dark. Only the flash of lightning illuminated the ground where reigned a temperature close to the one of Venus.

(13) The Earth wasn't habitable during this period of extreme temperature. Completely hot, the coat didn't retract any more or hardly little. But it was a propitious period for the dry volcanism, essentially due to gases. The ground was not moving any more (except that a little by the growth of the core), the faults, already filled with volcanic rocks and solidified lava, would not open any more. The plentiful of gases had then great difficulties to go back at the surface. The faults at the bottom of the basins, previously submerged but here uncovered, were then subject to tremendous eruptions of gases, dusts and lava.

(14) From the reign of water which froze in late precambrian, we are entering in the reign of gases: the gases of the atmosphere and those of the mantle. For all these reasons, the living beings of the primary weren't able to pass into the secondary. Because this period of high temperature was an impassable barrier for them, as was also the first period of high glaciations.

The secondary

(15) When the Earth left this region of its low orbits, to go one last time in the distant and the cold, it started the secondary era. This era was also inverted with regard to the primary, because this time the Earth went from high to low temperature. The effects on its ground, on its climate and on its coat were necessarily different. The first thing which appears, is that gigantic atmosphere of the beginning of this era provoked necessarily a long diluvian period, because all of the evaporated water was gradually condensing. The water then returned to the basins where it was taken from. Thus, gradually, basins filled again, by recovering most sediments brought by rushing rivers of the time and big streamings as we can imagine. All that cooled the ground. But soon after the long rains, the heat of the coat went up and warmed the ground, and the atmosphere. The climate becomes milder.

(16) After these tremendous rains and during the first half of this era, everything became again quiet. The coat moved a little. And except the great volcanism which was diminishing, it was a calm epoch. But in the second half of the secondary, there were some small elevations of the ground. Indeed, because of the thin thickness of the coat and its large surface, you can imagine that there were areas of the ground and subsoil which were warmer or colder than others. The hot spots which cooled slowly provoked some slow shrinkages which created hills and plateaus under the feet of the reptiles... But we have seen that this phenomenon had also for effect to discover the neighbouring hot spots which, by cooling, contracted in their turn. That engendered the formation of small conical hills, sometimes squeezed one against another. It is however only tiny and slow movements of the ground surface, that must not be confused with the huge and deep contractions of the coat which took place at the end of the two periods of big glaciations.

(17) These deep contractions of the subsoil couldn't occur during this secondary era, because the emerged lands were warm and had approximately the same surface as those of the primary era. But due to the slow growth of the core which made slightly withdraw the waters, these small continents appeared accordingly. However the shape of the continents were indeed far from the one of today; because it is the last glacial period into which we are going, which shaped them as we know it.

(18) The legacy of the primary era being essentially water and carbon, these emerged small lands from the secondary were necessarily, they also, covered with an extraordinary vegetations. They filled next with all reptiles species (dinosaurs). Only them could exist in the secondary, because these cold blooded animals needed a big external heat to live. Their metabolism clearly shows that these are the only beings which lived in the open air on a warm earth in the climate that this suppose.

(19) The big mountain ranges didn't exist yet. There was only some small massifs, the ground being rather hilly. For this reason, there were many lakes, ponds and marshes able to receive the reptiles with long neck which fed on fresh water plants. The secondary era was also a serene and magnificent period. Once more, everything was beautiful on our Earth. In the middle of this era, beings lived in the leniency of the elements.

(20) But this serenity lasted only for a short time, until the day the Moon came to put an end to the existence of these creatures. When it arrived, all that lived in the open air and in the sea perished. Herbs and beings were not able to resist to its coming, because everything changed on the Earth: the atmosphere, the weightiness, the climate and the seasons. Its approach engendered tidal waves which, only them, destroyed everything. The Earth shook and swung under the shock. This was a period of uninterrupted seism because, after the shock of the Moon which shook the whole Earth, continents stabilized again producing other tremors. But the shock also provoked profound tears of the ground (we shall soon examine them) and terrible ascents of lava. Everything was changed. Nothing could live in the open air. Then came silence in the midst of this great wilderness.

(21) However, we must not be mistaken; because, when the Moon approached the Earth, the secondary era was about to end. The species had already become rare. Indeed we see that the Earth was coming out of the region of the sky favorable to the existence of creatures. That's why their conditions of life diminished from day to day and disappeared taking these beings with them. There were thus only few living species in the day of the arrival of the Moon, which would have perished anyway during the last glacial period which already, was announced. But the Moon provoked other phenomena that we shall study separately. For now, let's continue our journey, and leave the fourth day that God made.

The second glacial period

(22) Immediately after the interception of the Moon, the Earth left once again the region of the sky favorable to the cycle of the water and of beings which depended of it, and entered in the cold of a new glacial period. I recall that the cycle of water is provoked by a change of temperature which constantly makes pass this body from gaseous state to liquid state and to solid state, or vice versa. Without liquid water, there can't be breathable air or rainfalls. Consequently no living being can come to life. This cycle of water only exists in the region of the sky where we are. This region is clearly shown on the snake, outside of which it is excluded that there could be beings. That's why, the other celestial bodies of solar family have no beings. Be convinced.

(23) During a glacial period, the temperature which was rising from the core prevented the freezing of the entire water volume of basins. The water thus remained liquid under the ice, especially near of warmer dorsals than everywhere else. Also, some marine animals of the abyssal depths may have lived during the glacial period. But on Earth where glaciation was strongly felt, even in depth, there couldn't be any living beings. On such deeply frozen ground, nothing grows. Therefore, during this glacial periods, living beings couldn't be found on emerged lands.

(24) Due to the slowdown of the to-ing and fro-ing of the Earth, we can imagine very well that the last glacial period lasted much longer than the previous one. The speed of the Earth was indeed already reduced, and even more by the mass of the Moon which came brake it in its course. It thus stayed for a long time in this region of the sky where the cold dominates. Therefore the effects of the cooling of the ground were colossal this time.

The tertiary

(25) We saw that the first glacial period brought the emergence of small lands from the beginning of the primary. Here, this second glacial period provoked this time vast and fast uprisings of the ground at the beginning of the tertiary, because the coat, still very hot, resumed its contractions. This happen even more widely than the glaciation brought down considerably sea levels, exposing to the cold the surroundings of basins which never knew the first glacial period. Seized by the cold, these discovered plots were then favorable to create mountainous folds which made lands emerged always more. We showed that the coat contained layers that we can compare to blankets, and that by cooling these layers created mountains by contracting. It is thus easy to see that by raising, these mountains were pulling on the plains by making emerge vast areas of earth taken from basins. This is there the process of emergence which we studied.

(26) Thus, the more land emerged was a big surface, the more penetration of cold was broad and deep. Consequently, greater was the shrinkages which created uprising. Therefore, at the beginning of the primary there were only small emerged surfaces and the shrinkages were proportional. Whereas at the start of the tertiary, all lands which were previously removed from waters and warmed were offered for a long period to low temperature and reached in depth this time. So, the first folds became rocky in the primary, were lifted and broken by the contractions of the deep layers. This created the magnificent mountain ranges with sharp rocks erected to the sky that we contemplate today.

(27) Several mountains also have the volcanism for origin. We understand that when the gases and lava persisted to come out of a dorsal, the point from which they came out was obviously a volcano able to emerge one day or another. A glacial period doesn't stop the activity of a volcano. And the mountain that this one forms is warmer than the rest of the ground exposed to the cold. So, when the sides of this volcano are reached in depth by the cold, it forms the process whose we already spoken; as to know that the shrinkages bring the earth around the volcano. Which this time forms an island sometimes very vast, an island which can only have one volcano for origin. And a succession of volcanoes aligned on a fault forms this time a lengthened island or a succession of islands along this fault.

(28) We shall return to the formation of the mountain ranges, because the Moon, by its shock with the Earth, made appeared some indirectly. For the moment, let's continue our journey in the tertiary where we saw mountains raising as rocky peaks and islands coming out of the sea. Finding the favorable climate to the existence, all lands (largely emerged this time) covered themselves again with greenery, birds, quadrupeds, reptiles and several other animal species many of which still exist today. The first half of the tertiary was necessarily a period of great turmoil of the ground: a seismic period, volcanic and of intense emergences. And the second half was, as for it, more calm. The large glaciers slowly vanished, diminishing polar ice caps and raising the water level. Living beings had a lot of space.

(29) But, at the end of the tertiary era, there are still some deserted surfaces provoked by the arrival of the Moon. We indeed saw that the world, once green and filled with wildlife from the secondary, wasn't able to resist to the arrival of the Moon which made perish everything. The Earth was thus only an immense desert, which occurred just before it enters into the last glacial period. Our deserts today, dating from the days when the Moon was intercepted, could not turn green again in the tertiary which was an era of intense geologic and climatic turmoil which modified rain falls. These dry zones and uninhabited aren't useless however, because without them, we wouldn't know what a garden is, and we would be fallible in our judgments. But let's conclude our overview of the eras, and leave the fifth day that God created.

The quaternary

(30) The snake shows us that at the end of the tertiary, the Earth finally stopped to come and go near the Sun. This stabilization marks the beginning of the quaternary which is the evolution, endless this time, of our planet in the temperate climate. No particular change of the relief, only the climate marks the quaternary. It was the moment of the apparition of men at the beginnings of this era, because humanity could appear and develop only when the conditions of life had become maximal and durable. We will talk at length. But know that God didn't create men to make them disappear from the surface of the Earth. Thus, it is only in this era, where the climate is temperate, that men cannot be destroyed by climatic or geological phenomena independent from their will. And this epoch in which we are is the sixth day that God created.
