EXPLORING GAIA MORE DEEPLY
Fundamental Gaian Geology/Physiology
19 March 2012
These two photos of crystals offer close approximations of images Leslee saw in meditation of regions inside Gaia. The Amethyst/Super7 point represents Mount Shasta as well as a temple pyramid in lower regions.
The photo below shows a close approximation of the caverns & pillars underneath the temple/pyramid. Leslee’s post on 19 March includes sketches of these places.

This new color sketch shows in more detail, the Agarthan lands, Telos, and other regions inside Gaia. The four-lobed light-colored interior shape represents a dimensional shift layering within the inner atmosphere. The light-golden octahedron is OcaTAwa, and the golden dot in the center is Tulya.
Other light ships are scattered throughout the atmosphere.
The regions that look like interior bubbles are hollow tubes that ring the planet.
The crust in this sketch appears much thicker than it is. Gaia’s diameter is approximately 8,000 miles (12,800 km), and the thickest crust (as measured by GEMMA – see below) is 70km.
Thus, Gaia’s crust thickness appears to be, at most, 1/200 of the diameter. Imagine an eggshell.
The mantle is the thin orange layer between inner and outer Gaia. The two crusts spin in opposite directions, and the mantle, heated by friction, lubricates the two crusts.
The regions where the edges of the mantle are exposed at the poles resemble annular volcanoes. The “lips” are continually exposing magma, which, once cooled, resemble flower petals until they are once again subsumed into the liquid mantle.
Travel between the shells takes place at the poles, as well as at key locations elsewhere. Travel through non-polar locations traverses the mantle layer.

Rough sketch done last night during a class, right before I found the MOHO article…
Gaia’s Outer Crust
MOHO Model of the Crust from Trieste
There’s a fascinating article on Voice of America’s “Science World” page:
“Detailed Map Offers Clues About Earth’s Interior”
… I was just wishing for a geological map that I could draw on top of…
Here’s the article:
The European Space Agency (ESA) has produced the first global high-resolution map of the boundary area between the Earth’s crust and mantle, which could offer new clues into the dynamics of Earth’s interior.
The Moho boundary was named after Andrija Mohorovičić, a Croatian scientist who discovered it back in 1909.
Although this region has never been seen, scientists can spot it through seismic measurements when there are sharp and sudden changes in the speed of earthquake waves, compared to measurements taken within the crust. Scientists presume that this may be due to a change in rock types.
Earth’s crust is the outermost shell of the planet. The crust is important because we live on it and it’s where all our geological resources – such as natural gas, oil and minerals – come from.
The crust and upper mantle layers of the Earth are where major geological processes, like earthquakes and volcanism, take place.
In order to study and understand the Moho, scientists currently use data models based on either seismic or gravity measurements, but those methods can provide limited information.
According to ESA, the new maps make it possible to estimate the Moho depth worldwide, including areas where ground data is not currently available.
Manicouagan Crater (Canada)
“Manicouagan Crater is one of the oldest known impact craters… (and) is thought to have been caused by the impact of a 5 km (3 mi) diameter asteroid about 215.5 million years ago (Triassic Period).It was once thought to be associated with the end-Carnian extinction event, but the Carnian-Norian boundary is now known to be much older, around 228 million years ago.
The crater is a multiple-ring structure about 100 km (60 mi), with its 70 km (40 mi) diameter inner ring its most prominent feature; it contains a 70 km (40 mi) diameter annular lake, the Manicouagan Reservoir, surrounding an inner island plateau, René-Levasseur Island. It is the earth’s fifth largest confirmed impact crater.
“It has been suggested that the Manicouagan crater may have been part of a hypothetical multiple impact event which also formed the Rochechouart crater in France, Saint Martin crater in Manitoba, Obolon’ crater in Ukraine, and Red Wing crater in North Dakota. Geophysicist David Rowley of the University of Chicago, working with John Spray of the University of New Brunswick and Simon Kelley of the Open University, discovered that the five craters formed a chain, indicating the breakup and subsequent impact of an asteroid or comet, similar to the well observed string of impacts of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9 on Jupiter in 1994.
Kelley had developed a technique to precisely date impact craters, using laser argon-argon dating of the glass formed by the impacts, and cited stratigraphic evidence to support an older age of 215 ± 25 Myr (Late Triassic). He and Kelley sought Rowley’s help to determine how the craters were aligned when the impacts occurred, since—due to plate tectonics—the locations have moved large distances in the intervening 214 million years. Three of the craters—Rochechouart, Manicouagan and Saint Martin—formed a 5,000 km (3,100 mi) chain at latitude 22.8° N, while Obolon’ and Red Wing lay on identical declination paths with Rochechouart and Saint Martin respectively. All of the craters had previously been known and studied, but their paleoalignment had never before been demonstrated. Rowley has said that the chance that these craters could be aligned like this due to chance are nearly zero.“
