The geek in me keeps thinking about the earthquake and tsunami in Japan (03/12/2011). Last year after the earthquake in Chile (02/27/2010), we were told that the earth axis was affected by about three inches (eight centimeters), which “should have shortened an Earth day by 1.26 millionths of a second.” Now we’re told the same about the catastrophe in Japan — throwing off the earth’s axis by 6.5 inches (17 centimeters) and making each day 1.8 millionths of a second shorter. Now the close coincidence in dates between these two events nearly a month apart is scary.
To make matters more interesting, in the past year or so, I’ve noticed that earthquakes happen in pairs bouncing from one point in the world to its opposite. The following (third) seems to bounce off on random on the opposite side of the world — as an amateurish tennis match with every third bounce of the ball without a proper and/or planned pattern.
Could it all be related? If so, how could it all be affecting the earth’s inner core and the shift of the physical poles? Of course, in such scenario, we must wonder if any earthquake-driven change on earth could affect the fabric of space causing some level of disturbance in our solar system sending it all to hell. If so, could any similar change in any other planet of our system affect earth too? Maybe it’s the end of times after all and it’s time to repent.
Maybe I’m just too much of a geek (as usual, too curious for my own good) wondering how the universe could end — as everything’s got a beginning and an undeniable end.
