Predicted Earth Off-Axis Shift Because of Chilean Quake 27 Feb 2010

Let us begin with the condensed NASA report, dated 01 March 2010.

JPL research scientist Richard Gross computed how Earth’s rotation should have changed as a result of the Feb. 27 quake. Using a complex model, he and fellow scientists came up with a preliminary calculation that the quake should have shortened the length of an Earth day by about 1.26 microseconds (a microsecond is one millionth of a second).

Perhaps more impressive is how much the quake shifted Earth’s axis. Gross calculates the quake should have moved Earth’s figure axis (the axis about which Earth’s mass is balanced) by 2.7 milliarcseconds (about 8 centimeters, or 3 inches). Earth’s figure axis is not the same as its north-south axis; they are offset by about 10 meters (about 33 feet).

By comparison, Gross said the same model estimated the 2004 magnitude 9.1 Sumatran earthquake should have shortened the length of day by 6.8 microseconds and shifted Earth’s axis by 2.32 milliarcseconds (about 7 centimeters, or 2.76 inches).

Gross said that even though the Chilean earthquake is much smaller than the Sumatran quake, it is predicted to have changed the position of the figure axis by a bit more for two reasons. First, unlike the 2004 Sumatran earthquake, which was located near the equator, the 2010 Chilean earthquake was located in Earth’s mid-latitudes, which makes it more effective in shifting Earth’s figure axis. Second, the fault responsible for the 2010 Chiliean earthquake dips into Earth at a slightly steeper angle than does the fault responsible for the 2004 Sumatran earthquake. This makes the Chile fault more effective in moving Earth’s mass vertically and hence more effective in shifting Earth’s figure axis.

Gross said the Chile predictions will likely change as data on the quake are further refined.

Two quotes below from eleven years earlier were taken from the published article “The Paranormal Objectified in a Perplexing Encounter,” Journal of Religion and Psychical Research, July 1999.

Quote 1: A vision appeared of a single band encircling the world. It was vertically oriented and tilted to the left at the top. Then unexpectedly there were three bands instead of one, wobbling in and out of one another while encircling the earth.

Quote 2: The three earth bands were approximately twice the diameter of the globe and encircling it in full view. All three bands were very narrow and of equal width. I was part of the vision, watching myself observe it from a considerable distance away and witnessing the phenomenon in a crouched position. I felt no emotion whatsoever, as is usual in my psychic experiences. It is as if all events are mere commonplace. It is only afterwards that I begin feeling emotion again, but the feelings come back very slowly.

I probed again and learned the balance of the bands was only made possible through alignment, wherein all bands must be made to appear as one. The bands separating and going askew undoubtedly mean chaos. I believe it to be an extension of an earlier prediction dated 15 March 1988: File – YRPRED, 27 December 1990. End Quotes.

The question is what is the significance of the band/s? It is clear that what I observed was not the band tilted, but rather the Earth tipped on its axis.
