I’ll go on translating the text for the image, and adding some further explanations.

There are some errors in datation for some of these pieces of land because of some factors of which the most important are two:

One) Some areas are supposed to be much older than they really are because, basing the age on the concentrations of some control isotopes of elements, means that when there is  less concentration of any of these elements, it is taken as, substrates being older, when what really happened is that there is much less concentration because these pieces of land were not emerged then, so, nor plants, nor animals, nor soils were present, because those areas were under (such as Australia) other pieces of land.

Two) Other areas vary isotopes concentrations correlated to their geomagnetic properties, so elements decay faster or slower depending on where they are situated in the planet. The higher the magnetism (magnetic field or line) the faster the decay occurs.

oxygen, nitrogen, noble gases, and any other control isotopes simply were not there, just as they are not either in the Earth’s core, that is why in some cases concentrations are low, but soils age is not so old (or young) as it is generally thought.

The rest of texts in the image contain some calculi to get the ages of those lands I marked on the map more equal between one another.

So, take 50 multiply by 50 and the result by 14.

50*50*14 =35000 years.

The pieces of land from 8 to 13 in the list of the image seem much older either because they were covered by other lands 11, 12, and 13; or because they are highly active in their magnetic, seismic, and tectonic natures 8, 9, 10 and in some cases both features are combined giving much older ages than they would give if were datated having all these on account.

The most likely ages are much closer between one another, so 250 years, in my opinion is not a correct value, and this indicates elements and their isotopes being driven there by magnetic fields and lines, such as a pin would be attracted to a magnet, that is why in those places concentrations are much higher and soils are thought to be much younger than they really are.

New Zealand, has an age of 700 years, too young a land, New Zealand is highly ferromagnetic, besides it is near (in a geo-scale) to the South Pole, and in addition magnetic field there is higher than in nearby lands, such as New Caledonia, which is thought to be 3000 years old, being indeed much older because it was deep under like Australia or Tasmania and the Bridge between them.

By making Australia 10000 years younger it passes from being 45000 years old to being 35000 years old (that is (45/3)*2.5 *1000= 35000 years old, almost one third younger than it is thought to be.

By multiplying New Zealand’s age: 700 by 50, the same result is obtained.

700 * 50 = 35000.

There is also a sketch of two football players, because what I say there is that this map can be turned into a ball much easier than a Mercator’s, by folding it by the triangles lines, you will get something very near to a spherical volume, such as football balls are enclosed in hexagons and pentagons, you can take the map and situate the marks in a Mercator’s projection to locate the places easier, the North Pole here gives a much better idea of the real shapes and dimensions, and so does the South Pole.

The chart with geological eras on the right, is in millions of years, so Holocene (this interglacial era) started 11700 years ago, according to these data.

And at the bottom of the image there is another chart with massive extinction events in millions of years (always according to the datation of soils into which the fossils are contained) located with a little arrow pointing down on the millions of years ago scale.

Holocene is next to that zero, which stands for the present moment, and the chart with the lines in vertical is aligned with Cenozoic (massive algae growth all over the planet period) era.

Well… not exactly, because day by day the idea of Antropocene is growing more known and also more evident. And it is another period, this currently taking place, because of Humanity impact on environment.

I am a teacher of English who started to write this blog in May 2014. In the column on the right I included some useful links and widgets Italian is another section of my blog which I called 'Cornice Italiana'. There are various tags and categories you can pick from. I also paint, compose, and play music, I always liked science, nature, arts, language... and other subjects which you can come across while reading my posts. Best regards.
