Ley lines?

Post by perfectbite » Sun Apr 10, 2005 4:15 am

In this month's Scientific American one of the articles is on the Earth's Geodynamo and the 'flipping' of the Earth's magnetic poles. One of the article's diagrams shows what looks to be a tangled, exploded two color ball of yarn.<p>Given the advanced technology that is able to plot out these lines of force is there a relationship between these lines of force and ley lines or are ley lines something else altogether?<p>Any ideas?<p>BTW Last month's Sci. Am. had a great article called 'Big Bang Bungled' that addressed the common misunderstandings of the differences between special and general relativity. Worth a read in my opinion especially in explaining how some areas of the visible universe seem to be travelling faster than light, they could be travelling faster than light but not really and that same issue has a very short article on the 'Genius of Nikola Tesla'.

I don't think they are related to Ley Lines:<p>Ley Lines
Ley lines, or Leys, are alignments of ancient sites stretching across the landscape. Ancient sites or holy places may be situated in a straight line ranging from one or two to several miles in length. A ley may be identified simply by an aligned placing of marker sites, or it might be visible on the ground for all or part of its length by the remnants of an old straight track. <p>Ley Lines were 're-discovered' on 30 June 1921 by Alfred Watkins (1855-1935), a locally well-known and respected Herefordshire businessman, who while looking at a map for features of interest noticed a straight line that passed over hill tops through various points of interest, all of which were ancient. At the time of his discovery, Watkins had no theory about alignments but on that June afternoon saw "in a flash" a whole pattern of lines stretching across the landscape. Four years later, in 1925, he described his vision in a book he titled The Old Straight Track: <p>http://witcombe.sbc.edu/earthmysteries/EMLeyLines.html

Faster than light has already been proven. <p>Even Einstein claimed light as a constant, not a ultimate or barrier that cant be crossed.

He said for argument sake, we need a reference point to make calculations on and said the speed of light was that constant to base his formulae on.

The magnetic North pole is in the middle of Canada now.
