    By observing using the full spectrum of all sciences, we peer through obscurations to uncover a Milky Way Structure. Nature is talking to us, all we need is the sensitivity to listen. /// morbas.

    Galactic Geologic Interval Theory
    Abstract: Geologic Period intervals coincide with eight galactic arm intercepts of our solar orbit of the Milky Way Galaxy. Eight Periods have a continuous periodicity of 74 million years (M). The four other periods (including the Permian) are interleaved inter-arm events, where a breakdown of bio-thermal environmental balance results in significant global warming; an Arm dust flow modulation of Earth's thermal climate. This collective evidence supports a symmetrical galactic structure, and locates a (hidden) Orion symmetric sixth arm at a 213 million year ago (Ma) intercept, on our diametric side of the galaxy.
    Interleaved Geologic Periods
    Twelve Geologic Periods span Earth's three Major Geologic Era's of life. Eight terminate on a continuous 74M period chain with a 7M standard deviation.These Periods are Tertiary-Quaternary, Cretaceous, Jurassic, Triassic, Pennsylvanian, Devonian, Ordovician, and Cambrian (see Table One, USGS et.al.) [19] . Geologic Periods not in this chain are the Permian (248Ma), Mississippian (320Ma), Silurian (408Ma) and Pre-Cambrian (550Ma) which also have a 74My non-contiguous interval.
    Galactic Interval
    Our Milky way Galaxy architecture is presumed to be a symmetrical with a Central Bar structure arm architecture as mapped in Figure 1. A scientists forum consensus [see Reference 3] of the Galaxy Structure is redrawn in Figure Two. As a symmetric architecture, four arms are chained to each of the two central bar endpoints. Near side end point is linked with Norma Arm, Perseus Arm, Cygnus Arm, and Orion Arm. The far side end has an unnamed (hidden Norma symmetrical) Arm, Sagittarius Arm, Scutum-Crux Arm, and hidden Orion symmetric Shaver Arm.
    At our radial distance from the Galaxy core (26,000 light years), six arms intersect with our orbit. Average arm spacing is approximately 4,500 light years (ly). Relative velocity of our solar system to Orion Arm dust (Hydrogen, CO, and Helium et.al.) is 26KM/s into the Solar Apex point of (Sagittarius Constellation) Vega. Very Long Baseline Array (VLBA), hold the solar system in a 220My orbit of the Galaxy (Mark Reid, 1999). Hydrogen caused luminosity shifts in red stars reveal the spiral structure[18] of distant galaxies. Hydrogen flow (Vega Apex 26Km/s) defines the arm dynamics.
    From a Galactic reference, the Solar Apex flow is moving towards our Galactic orbit from the core. The Arm is an aggregate wave of hydrogen flow, and debris that moves through our orbital. With an expansion rate of 26KM/sec, the solar system orbital intersection rate with the arms is 74M +/-3%. Thus, our Galactic orbit places the Sun in the six arms coincident with eight of twelve Geologic Period end/start dates. And, midway between arms on the interleaved four periods end dates.
    Sun driven geologic division hypothesis.
    Arms have a very high probability for mass extinction events [6]. Arm dust flow modulates the solar input to Earth. Between arms, we have maximum solar input, an environment consequential to the Permian end date. Inside the Arms we have minimal solar input. We see period terminators exhibiting low ocean levels and some glaciating. A secondary causal is the vertical oscillation of our system resulting in a 29My intercept with the Galactic Plane. This appears to cause some of the deviation in the 74My average. Both of these are detectable from meteorite analysis. Each terminator may have unique direct causes, however the arm solar input is imprinted on all Period terminations. Period analysis of meteorite impacts of Figure 3, show a periodicity due to galactic plane intercepts as well as a 74M year grouping in alignment with this GGIH mapping. The meteorite periodicity analysis indicates we have been in the next 74My threat zone (Orion Arm) for about one to two million years[10]. The Sun is a far more likely attractor of meteorite impacts than Earth. Super solar flares (Bradley E. Schaefer, January 9, 1999) erupt when debris perturbs and/or impacts the sun and opens the metallic surface. These solar events and parsec proximity supernova events generate Gamma Rays that will sweep away the Earth's Ozone [6] . A secondary OZONE depletion mechanism may be associated with increased luminosity of stars in the arms (due to hydrogen). A slight shift in the UV radiation (260nm to 300nm: Britannica Micropedea: Ozone) will cause the Ozone to grow, or alternately to be depleted [7] . Alternately, hydrogen (HCl) may combine with the O3, also depleting the Ozone(8). Increased ultraviolet radiation kills all carbon based life DNA. The Solar Flare Iron emissions are many more times deadly to life. As astronomical technology advances we also find more GL710 and multiple close intercepts with stars. Some multiple extinction direct causes have been elucidated by Leitch & Vasisht [6]. Suffice it to say, there are always multiple extinction causation. It is the variance in solar input, which enhances severity and susceptibility for a Period Terminator outcome.
    Intellectual Emergence
    In an hostile environment, with natural shelter more plentiful for the small, the larger life forms are disproportionately suppressed. Extra-Terrestrial-Intellectual existence zones may be exclusive to passage of the leading edge of Galactic Arms. As during this transition, established dominance is upset We were approaching the Orion Arm coincident to the Quaternary Period when Homo erectus emerged, giving rise to Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens. Geologic Periods begin and end, some with a whimper, and sometimes accentuated with a bang. When muscular dominance is suppressed or extinguished, intellectual tendency flourishes. Similar to Homo Erectus emergence, some paleontologists have suggested an emerging dinosaur intelligence. This emergence would be possible if the larger dinosaurs were at an end of their epoch as the Earth cooled. At a later time, the Mesozoic Period (intelligence) was extinguished through ozone depletion, and or a KT event at the Yucatan Peninsula. The intra-arm Permian terminator occurred in a high solar input condition, where a global CO2 thermal run away was more likely. The Pre-Cambrian terminator occurred at a equivalent inter-arm solar maximum, which in concert with an increased Sun main sequenced energy output, Snowball Earth phased green. From this point, the Gaia hypothesis for life control of the environment holds sway.
    Epilogue
    Multiple threats found in the Galactic Arms are causal to Period transitions in concert with Galactic Arm dust flow. The eight contiguous period geologic end dates occur in the arms; the four discontiguous geologic end dates accur between the arms. The present position of the solar system is within the outside half of the Orion spiral arm, 3/5th from the Milky Way Galaxy center (Figure Two). The Tertiary Period ended, and the Quaternary Period began 2Ma, in coincidence with the leading edge of the Orion spiral arm. We are at the edge of a 74M Galactic Geological Period. Assuming the next Major Geological Galactic Period is within maximum deviation limits recorded, statistically, it is certain to occur within the next 8M (million years).

    Nooo I don't wanna die!! :wink:

    So does this hypothesis deny that asteroid-impact played a role in mass extinction events?

    The long absent Morbas appears to have been referring to the concept of Nemesis, an unseen stellar companion to the Earth whose orbit periodically comes close enough to disturb comets from the Oort Cloud that then plunge into the inner solar system, some of them impacting Earth. However, the danger point, as you can see from this abstract, is still some distance in the future.


    Marc Davis, Piet Hut & Richard A. Muller Extinction of species by periodic comet showers Nature 308, 715 - 717 (19 April 1984)

    A 26-Myr periodicity has recently been seen in the fossil record of extinction in the geological past1. At least two of these extinctions are known to be associated with the impact on the Earth of a comet or asteroid with a diameter of a few kilometres. We propose that the periodic events are triggered by an unseen companion to the Sun, travelling in a moderately eccentric orbit, which at its closest approach (perihelion) passes through the 'Oort cloud' of comets which surrounds the Sun. During each passage this unseen solar companion perturbs the orbits of these comets, sending a large number of them into paths which reach the inner Solar System. Several of these hit the Earth, on average, in the following million years. At present the unseen companion should be approximately at its maximum distance from the Sun, 2.4 light yr, and it will present no danger to the Earth until approximately AD 15,000,000.

    Objections to the concept appeared almost at once:

    S. V. M. Clube & W. M. Napier Terrestrial catastrophism—Nemesis or Galaxy? Nature 311, 635 - 636 (18 October 1984)

    The 30 Myr periodicity associated with the Sun's motion through the central plane has been linked to geomagnetic reversals, biological extinctions and crater ages. This periodicity is consistent with galactic theories of terrestrial catastrophism. It has been suggested, however, that the periodicity is controlled by a hypothetical stellar companion of the Sun ('Nemesis') in a highly eccentric orbit of arbitrarily chosen period which periodically upsets the Oort cloud. Although the idea appears superficially attractive, there has been little or no attempt to relate it to what is already known about the Oort cloud and the environment in which the Sun-Nemesis system would have to exist. Thus, the inferred phase of the Nemesis cycle is inconsistent with such evidence as there may be for a recent disturbance (5 Myr) of the Oort cloud, namely the apparent non-equilibrium distributions of perihelia and 1/a, and the enhancement of the short-period comet population. It also discounts the generally high glacial, magnetic and orogenic activity on Earth within this period and the Sun's recent passage through Gould's belt. However, the most serious problem is reconciling the approximately constant time-averaged cratering rate for the last 3,000 Myr and the stability of the proposed system.

    The idea now seems largely out of favour.

    It is tough to publish a concept.
    And No, I do not want to die...a simple peer review will due.

    Dear Ophiolite
    This has certainly nothing associated with the Nemesis fantasy, which is refuted in discussions on ASTROMOMY.COM. (at which reference material is presented). The basis of this hypothesis is correlation of the Geologic Periods with Galactic Arm Dynamics.
    Also, I would like to add jpg images to this forum. Can this me done?

    1. Your substantial edit of 26th June of your original post makes it clear this is a different concept from Nemesis. I am puzzled as to why this edit is, seemingly, so different from the original, though that is incidental.
    2. Informative as Astronomy.com is, I would not regard a refutation in a discussion there as of particular significance.

    This is much more interesting. I shall take some time to read your arguments more carefully, then comment and question.

    I'll check. I think we are avoiding it because of bandwidth issues.

    I think you have ignored the ambiant disfunctionality of the bicameral field interface.

    I stopped reading when I figured it was nonsense, about here:
    Abstract: Geologic Period intervals coincide with eight galactic arm intercepts of our solar orbit of the Milky Way Galaxy
    Sorry, I'm just not very patient sometimes.

    right so what ur saying is that soon 'nuff were gonna hit sum stuff?
    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    Morbas, my understanding, which is suspect, is that we do not generally pass trhough the spiral arms, because of the unusual circularity of our orbit and its consequent even speed. You are maintaining this is not the case. Please furnish me with some reference(s) to substantiate this. In particular please justify your claim that their are eight spiral arms. This is greater than the number I understand to exist.

    Concensus is the Galaxy has four major arms, the fifth arm is the Orion Arm, that we are presently passing. This is a fact that cannot be denied.
    The 74My interval is idependently supported by the fact that the dust flow is 26Km/s from a Galactic Center vector. (References are given in the web sight mentioned in the above article.) This article is a formulation based entirely on published datum.
