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 the solar family, in which the Earth made some to-ing and fro-ing which shaped 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 him. 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:

When Peter was hungry (hungry for the truth), he saw the sky open, and an object like a great tablecloth tied at the four corners, descending and lowering itself towards the earth, and where all the quadrupeds and the reptiles of the earth and the birds of the sky were. And a voice said to him: Get up, Peter, kill and eat.
This happened up to three times; and immediately after, the object was taken away from the sky.

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 accomplish to build the ark according to its three levels and to save what should not perish. But this large tablecloth on which the world is represented, is today called: world map. It is about the planisphere and its four cardinal points to which it is attached. Well, we will observe this tablecloth of the world in all eras, to get an overview of earlier epochs, 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 movements shows 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. This 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 then the essential elements of what has been since the illumination of the Sun.

The precambrian

(4) The precambrian was the first era formed by the displacement of the Earth which went away in the distance, blown by the blast of the atmospheric explosion. But apart from the solar nebula which watered the ground abundantly 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 of lands were emerged. Consequently, the vegetation and the early beings were not widespread in these beginnings. Also the rocks of this period have given only a few rare vestiges of these first organisms, produced by the fresh water, which appeared according to the simplicity of living conditions of the time. They had also only a short time of existence, because 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 finally stabilized in the distance, where it was cold. This glacial period is defined as the period from the point of glaciation of the water at the equator till the melting of the ice on this same equator, and at a temperature descending much lower than this point of glaciation or melting of the water. 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 furthest 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 colder than at the poles nowadays.

(6) Here, on these distant orbits at the end of the precambrian, the water remained frozen from one pole to the other over a great depth. During this long period, the low temperature reached the deep layers of the mantle which were already beginning 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, due to the cold which had finally reached the deeper and warmer layers of the mantle. This emergence was first made by rapid shrinkages during 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 were already emerging. There were not yet high mountains in the primary, but only lands that were just above the waters and sometimes forming large rounded folds on which hills and some plateaus appeared. These folds of the ground became for the most part mountain ranges at the beginning tertiary, when the resumption of the shrinkages.

(9) But during this first half of the primary, the lava was easily coming up along the fissures and filling them up. Certainly, the gases were also erupting, but almost as calmly, as they too didn't encounter any great difficulties. This volcanism was not yet very propitious for the formation of the small islands of volcanic origin that we find today in the form of rosaries along the original faults, which later became the ridges, amongst which a few emerged. No, it is more likely that in the primary these fault lines, today scattered with volcanoes and mountains, were only crevices filled by lava.

(10) Thus at the beginning of the primary, the more or less hilly terrain 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 terrains became covered with grasses and all kinds of plants. Because of the richness of the moment and a slightly lesser weight, this vegetation was luxuriant. There was no desert in those days. Everything was green on the Earth, right up to the poles which had become temperate and where the ice would eventually disappear completely. And it is this immense and abundant 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) This is what the primary was like. But, as has been said, the first emerged continents did not yet have the relief or configuration as those nowadays. Nevertheless, it was an important moment of the vegetal reign which also saw the appearance of some creatures somewhat different from previous, also more numerous, but still very simple in their organism. Produced by the waters, these beings existed in the sea which was already slightly salted due to the terrestrial electromagnetic activity. But they also existed on lands exposed to the Sun and on which it rained abundantly in the second period of the era. There were many lakes, swamps, a few streams, and also a lot of rains, similarly to tropical rains. Everything was beautiful from one end of the small continents to the other. 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 low orbits. The temperature on the ground increased accordingly and became maybe four to six times superior to that of the equator nowadays. As all the water in the basins evaporated, the atmosphere was giant. There wasn't obviously any ice left at the poles. The ground was dry and very hot. 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 were hiding the Sun. It was dark. Only the flashes of lightning illuminated the ground where reigned a temperature close to that of Venus.

(13) The Earth wasn't habitable during this period of extreme temperature. Completely hot, the mantle didn't retract anymore or hardly a little. But this was a propitious period for the dry volcanism, essentially due to gases. The ground was not moving anymore (if only a little by the growth of the core), the faults, already filled with volcanic rocks and solidified lava, would not open anymore. The abundant gases had then great difficulties to come back to 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 the 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 distance 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 mantle were necessarily different. The first thing which appears, is that the gigantic atmosphere at the beginning of this era inevitably provoked 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 up again, by covering themselves with sediments brought by the rushing rivers of the time and big streamings that we can imagine. All that cooled the ground. But after the long rains, the heat of the mantle rose 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 calm again. The mantle moved a little. And apart from 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 mantle and its large surface, we can easily imagine that there were some areas of the ground and subsoil were hotter or colder than others. The hot spots which cooled slowly provoked some slow shrinkages which created hills and plateaus to appear 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. This caused the formation of small conical hills, sometimes tighly packed one against another. These are however only tiny and slow movements of the ground surface, which should not be confused with the huge and deep contractions of the mantle which took place at the end of the two epochs of great 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 the waters to withdraw slightly, these small continents appeared accordingly. However the shape of the continents was still far from that of today; because it is the last glacial period towards which we are going, which shaped them as we know them.

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

(19) The big mountain ranges didn't exist yet. There were only a few small massifs, the ground being rather hilly. For this reason, there were many lakes, ponds and marshes that could receive the reptiles with long neck which fed on the tender aquatic plants. The secondary era was also a serene and magnificent period. Once again, 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, everything that lived in the open air and in the sea perished. Herbs and beings could not resist its coming, because everything changed on the Earth: the atmosphere, the weightiness, the climate and the seasons. Its approach engendered tidal waves which, by themselves, destroyed everything. The Earth shook and tipped over under the shock. It was a period of uninterrupted earthquakes because, after the shock of the Moon which shook the entire Earth, the continents stabilized again producing more tremors. But the shock also provoked profound tears in the ground (we shall soon examine them) and frightening upwellings of lava. Everything was changed. Nothing could live in the open air anymore. 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) 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 the 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 this body pass 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 the solar family have no beings. Be convinced.

(23) During a glacial period, the temperature which was rising from the core prevented the glaciation of the entire water volume of basins. The water thus remained liquid under the ice, especially around the ridges that were warmer than anywhere else. Also, some marine animals from the abyssal depths may have lived during the glacial period. But on Earth where glaciation was strongly felt, even at great depth, there could be no living beings. On such deeply frozen ground, nothing grows. That is why, during this glacial periods, living beings couldn't be found on emerged lands.

(24) Due to the slowing down of the to-ing and fro-ing of the Earth, we can very well imagine that the last glacial period lasted much longer than the previous one. The speed of the Earth was already very reduced, and even more so by the mass of the Moon which slowed it down in its course. It thus stayed for a long time in this region of the sky where the cold dominates. This is why 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 upliftings of the ground right from the beginning of the tertiary, because the mantle, still very hot, resumed its contractions. This happened even more widely because the glaciation caused the sea levels to drop considerably, exposing to the cold the surroundings of the basins which never knew the first glacial period. Seized by the cold, these open lands were then favorable to create mountainous folds which made the lands emerged more and more. We showed that the mantle contained layers that can be compared to blankets, and that by cooling down these layers made the mountains to erect by contracting. It is thus easy to see that by rising, these mountains were pulling on the plains by making vast areas of land emerge from the basins. This is the process of emergence that has been studied.

(26) Thus, the more the emerged land was of a large surface, the more the penetration of the cold was vast and deep. Consequently, the greater was the shrinkages which created uplifting. For exemple, 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 the lands which were previously removed from the waters and heated were offered for a longer period at the low temperature and reached deeper this time. So, the first folds that became rocky in the primary, were here lifted and broken by the contractions of the deep layers. This created the magnificent mountain ranges with sharp rocks that reach towards the sky that we contemplate today.

(27) Several mountains also have the volcanism as their origin. We understand that when the gases and lava persisted to come out of a ridge, this 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 that we already talked about; which is that the shrinkages bring 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 them appear indirectly. For the moment, let's continue our journey in the tertiary where we saw the mountains rise up in rocky peaks and the islands emerge from the sea. Regaining the favorable climate to existence, all the lands (largely emerged this time) were again covered with greenery, birds, quadrupeds, reptiles and several other animal species among which many still exist today. The first half of the tertiary was necessarily a period of great turmoil of the ground: a period of seismic, volcanic and of intense emergences. And the second half was, as for it, calmer. The large glaciers were slowly disappearing, making the polar caps diminish and the water level rise. The living beings had a lot of space.

(29) But, at the end of the tertiary era, there were still some deserted surfaces that remained due to the arrival of the Moon. We indeed saw that the world, once green and filled with wildlife from the secondary, could not resist the arrival of the Moon which made everything perish. The Earth was thus only an immense desert, which occurred just before it entered into the last glacial period. Our deserts of today, dating from the days when the Moon was intercepted, could not turn green again in the tertiary which was an era of intense geological and climatic turmoil which modified the rains. These dry and uninhabited zones 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. This was the moment of the appearance of men at the beginning of this era, because humanity could only appear and develop when the conditions of life had become maximal and durable. We will talk about this at length. But know that God didn't create men to make them disappear from the surface of the Earth. However, it is only in this era, when 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 in is the sixth day that God created.
