Earth’s Magnetic Fields and How It Protects Life

Earth’s Magnetic Fields
The earth possesses a magnetic field. A portion of the earth’s magnetic field is generated by the ‘ionosphere’-a layer of air containing electrically-charges particles and extending from sixty to a hundred miles above the surface of the Earth. Beyond this, and extending some thousand of miles into space is a huge swarm of radioactive particles dangerous to life-the “magnetosphere”, also known as the Van Allen radiation Belt, after the American scientist who discovered it.

As these particles approach Earth, they are trapped by the Earth’s magnetic field and are prevented from reaching the Earth’s surface. Were it not for the Earth’s magnetic fields, all life on Earth would probably cease to exist! Just as the Earth’s magnetic field preserves life, magnetic-therapy preserves health and prevents disease.

Earth’s magnetic field strength is just about half a gauss. But this geomagnetic field plays a vital role in maintaining biological life. When space technology advanced sufficiently to make manned space flights possible, scientists became more aware of the vital role played by Earth’s magnetic field. The spaceships are protected against dangerous cosmic radiation. When the spacecraft Soyuz XI returned to Earth with its there Soviet cosmonauts on June 30, 1971 everything seemed to be normal. The automatic landing was normal. But when the recovery team opened the door all three crewmen were found dead. Although exact details about the crewmen’s death not known, Dr. Gultekin Caymaz, attached to the Ataturk Sanatorium in Ankara, Turkey, believes that their death could be due to increased atmospheric electric activity at the time their descent.

Moreover, both Soviet and American cosmonauts, on their return to Earth have from psychiatric disturbances, calcium metabolic defects and, may be, other physiological disturbances. According to N.A.S.A (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) solar storms can be predicted and space flights arrange accordingly. We must here point out that gravitational forces also play a vital role in biological processes, particularly in calcium metabolism. Our very skeletal framework proves this. Without gravity we would not need a bony structure. However, we feel that electromagnetism (EM) is one of the most important of all Nature’s forces, and without it, creation itself would cease to be.

Although the Earth’s magnetic field strength is only about half a gauss we know that it is vital for the preservation of life. The geomagnetic field (GMF) is not fixed but keeps changing. The Earth’s magnetic poles keep shifting and have changed places. Several such pole reversals have occurred during the past three of four million years. During the geomagnetic reversals period there is a time when the Earth’s GMF intensity at certain places comes to zero. It is such times that the gigantic dinosaur and many other species of life must have disappeared, and certain mutations remained. Geomagnetic activity must influence the history of life on Earth.

When cosmonauts go out into space they are deprived of the protective influence of the GMF. Consequently, they are most likely to suffer from various physiological disturbances. Scientists would be wise if they lined the spaceships with magnets to create a magnetic field within if they lined the spaceship with magnets to create a magnetic field within the spacecraft. The magnetic field will protect the crewmen from electro-magnetic (EM) anomalies in outer space and would further stabilized their bioelectric activity, thus preserving normal physiological activity. We further feel that electromagnets should not be used as there is not static, and so they could actually cause bioelectric disturbances. Permanent magnets would be ideal as their fields are of constant intensity.

Manned space flights made scientists the world over aware of the effects of magnetic fields on biological processes, giving birth to the science known as “Biomagnetism” (the science dealing with the study of the biological effects of magnetic fields). Consequently, “magnet-therapy”, the science of treating diseases with the poles of magnets, will soon become has given a great boots to magnet-therapy.

It is important to remember that the magnetic South pole of the earth is near the geographical north and, correspondingly, the earth’s magnetic north pole is near the geographical south. This has been confirmed by both Soviet and American after satellites were sent into orbit.

  5. NIce explanation!

    Sorry to say this but although the picture is really nice it is wrong!

    The little * saves it a bit but geographical north is in fact the magnetic south pole of earth's magnetic field!
    cheers
