Copulating reports and viewpoints expressed by scientist across PBS, discovery and the science broadcast channels I have mearly connected the dots.
Earth … a living creature. Call it a single celled organism though on a much larger scale and consuming a larger time frame ( that of millions of years ) for its processes…those of eating and reproduction.
What does the earth eat?
Simplest answer is quite evident…The Energy from the Sun.
Sub-answers are involved with the parasites of plants which produce soil … compressed into rock … fed into the subduction plates and then into the molten core of the earth.
How does the earth reproduce?
cellular division. This may get complicated but remember this occurs over the course of millions of years.
Super continents … presently there is a theory of two different occurrences (meaning two different reproductions ) but for this presentation I’ll focus on only one condition.
Logically speaking, physics would dictate that if of all the land mass of the earth had accumulated to one side of the globe there should be the creation of a massive wobble which would not allow for a stable weather pattern which would not allow for the creation or continued existence of a 165 million year reign of dinosaurs. Logically speaking, there should have been an opposite land mass on the other side of the earth. That opposite land mass was ejected to become … the Moon , Mars , Venus and or the asteroid belt.
Earth – a living organism
The definition of life is:
consumption of a nutrient and increases its’ size ( eats a food and grows)
excretes a waste ( it pees and poops )
reproduces ( gives birth )
There are existing examples of those stages present in our solar system.
the Moon is the youngest example present
the Earth and Mars
Tectonic plate developments and movements
The Earths’ visible evidence of excretions: water and air.
Venus’ atmosphere is its’ only known excretion.
exposure of the organisms’ core to its’ excretions has created a fiery outer skin for protecting/containment of its’ core. ( I am uncertain as to whether Venus is about to give birth or if it is closing after its’ birthing process. )
Mercury (purely conjecture on my part )
Core has been breached by a “weird eruption”
