The similarity between an electric generator with its carefully placed magnets and the sun with its ever-changing planets is intriguing. In the generator, the magnets are fixed and produce a constant electrical current. If we consider that the planets are magnets and the sun is the armature, we have a considerable similarity to the generator.

A convergence of a planetary and lunar conjunction involving the Moon, Venus, Mars and Neptune can result in larger seismic activity. There is a 50-60% probability of a higher 7 to 8 magnitude earthquake in the next few days.

validity of earthquake forecasting

It is often stated that in order for an earthquake forecast to be valid it must define 3 elements: 1) the date and time, 2) the location, and 3) the magnitude. We believe that this requirement is unrealistic for the same reason that a weather forecast is allowed to say that even on the most shiny days there is a 0-10% or 30-40% precipitation PROBABILITY, without specifying the precise location. This has been valid scientific practice for decades.

Our focus is on earthquakes with approximately magnitude 5.6 and larger, because earthquakes in this category tend to occur more often when planets and the moon reach specific positions in the solar system. This relationship with planetary and lunar positions explains the usual clustering of larger earthquakes in time. A first example that set off our research is 23 June 2014, when six strong to major tremors occurred within hours in the South and North Pacific, at the time when three planetary conjunctions converged with critical lunar geometry. In addition to the seismic activity, a meteo-tsunami occurred from 23 to 27 June 2014 in the Mediterranean that propagated from west to east due to 'high altitude atmospheric forcing.'

While statistics say something about the average occurrence over long periods of time, they do not say anything about the actual occurrence in real time. If for example statistics say that a magnitude 6 earthquake occurs every 2.7 days on average, it does not mean that this is what usually happens. In extreme cases there can be 20 or even 25 days between magnitude 6 earthquakes. Likewise, the average can go up to less than 2 days over a period of several weeks. In addition, there is a big difference between magnitude 6.0 and 6.9, the latter of which occurs much less frequently. The same applies to magnitude 7 earthquakes. While on average they occur every 20-24 days, in reality we sometimes see two or three within two weeks, while in extreme cases there can be a drought of half a year or more, like in 2017, 2018 and 2019.

Some argue that earthquakes happen all the time or that planetary conjunctions (alignments) happen all the time. These kind of arguments are too general. One should ask what kind of earthquakes, like magnitude 4, 5 or 6, which are very different categories, both in strength and occurrence. Likewise, one should carefully study the occurrence and type of planetary conjunctions. Sometimes there are no conjunctions for more than a week or even two weeks. Sometimes there are a dozen conjunctions or more in one month. Moreover, not all conjunctions are the same and their electromagnetic influence greatly depends on the planets involved.

A scientific argument often heard is that planets have little influence, as the distance between them is too great for the gravitational force to be of significance. While mathematics can be applied to prove that the gravitational force is indeed (too) weak, the logic behind this reasoning is flawed at the very root, because it does not explain why only the gravitational force between the planets should be considered. After all, of the four fundamental forces currently recognized in nature, gravity is the weakest and dominated by the electromagnetic force. In the 1940s, 50s and 60s RCA's radio engineer John H. Nelson proved through observation of short wave radio communication that planetary positions in the solar system greatly affect Earth's atmosphere. Of nearly 1,500 atmospheric condition forecasts that he made in 1967 he had an accuracy rate of 93.2%. His forecast methods, while seemingly forgotten, have not been refuted to date.

What is SSGI

The Solar System Geometry Index (SSGI) is an indicator for anticipating large(r) seismic activity. See a brief explanation here. Examples of the SSGI and larger earthquakes are in the earthquake reports section.

Clue to Earthquake Lightning Mystery

Mysterious lightning flashes that appear to precede earthquakes could be sparked by movements in the ground below, US scientists say.

Scientists took a tupperware container filled with flour, tipped it back and forth until cracks appeared and it produced 200 volts of charge. There isn't a mechanism that explains this. It seems new physics. If the same occurs along faultlines, it could generate millions of volts.

Earthquake Alarm

Impending earthquakes have been sending us warning signals — and people are starting to listen

Researchers in Taiwan monitored 144 earthquakes between 1997 and 1999, and they found that for those registering 6.0 and higher the electron content of the ionosphere changed significantly one to six days before the earthquakes.

[..] The connection between large earthquakes and electromagnetic phenomena in the ground and in the ionosphere is becoming increasingly solid. Researchers in many countries, including China, France, Greece, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, and the United States, are now contributing to the data by monitoring known earthquake zones. Full article.

Geometry and Dynamics of the Solar System

The question is, why do we have two terms representing a single geometric constant? In this question lies the true mystery of the gravitational constant G. We know that it is geometric in origin because the mean velocity and period of an orbiting body in Space depend solely on its mean distance from the central body.

The key is electromagnetic radiation transmitted by a central body, such as a star or a planet. This radiation creates a field that naturally forces a revolving body to assume an orbit at a specific, geometrically determined distance, which alone determines the orbital velocity and period.
