: Sand Floods - is sand suddenly created as part of the XEarth and the EU?

Is the Bay there because of the sand or is the sand there because of the Bay?

Sand is found all over the world. Sometimes in the strangest of places. It is associated with water but that does not mean it is produced by water. Effective Cause. Is it still being produced in our deserts, land and beaches but not by erosion? If this is the case then sand and dunes should suddenly appear with no real explanation.

Why is the sand found on most beaches so different to the rocks around the area? If it is meant to come from those rocks why is it not the same colour, why can whole beaches be made of the exact same grain sizes, why does it not seem to stop appearing. Ramla Bay on the island of Gozo has very fine red/orange sand. But Gozo is a limestone island. How on earth can it produce orange sand. Not just produce it but never lose it.

Sand and sand dunes have suddenly appeared in areas.

The Nebraska Sand Hills

The Sand Hills appeared quite suddenly, only about a thousand years ago.

Just like Nebraska, Norfolk suffers from unexpected outbreaks of bad temper. A great - albeit short-lived - movement of the dunes was recorded in the 11th century, at about the time the Sand Hills formed. In his diary, John Evelyn talks of another brief outbreak 600 years later; it was so severe that a "sand-flood" 10ft deep buried houses in the village of Santon Downham. Even 50 years ago, the earth began to move, although it has now settled down again.

The Sand Hills of  Nebraska are found over the massive Ogallala aquifer.

The Great Sand Floods in Santon Downham - Norfolk, East Anglia

Between the year 1665 and 1670 sandstorms took place which threatened to overwhelm the village of Santon Downham and silted up the river between Thetford and Brandon.

Thomas Wright Esq... was living in Santon Downham at the time. He said that he found some difficulty in tracing these wonderful sands to their origin, but he found it to be in a warren in Lakenheath; a town about five miles south-west of Santon Downham. Here some great sand hills broken by the tempestuous south-west winds were blown upon some adjacent ground. This being of the same nature and having only a thin coat of grass over it, which was soon rotted because of the other sand lying on it.

It joined the Lakenheath sand, increased its mass, and accompanied its strange progress. Mr Wright supposes that at the first eruption the sand did not cover more than eight or ten acres of ground; but before it had travelled four miles from its first abode it increased so much that it covered more than a thousand.

(Here Mr. Wright goes on to describe the damage caused by the sand in Santon Downham) "It is now got into the body of this little town, where it hath buried and destroyed diverse tenements and other houses and hath forced us to preserve the remainder at a greater expense than they are worth."

For four or five years Mr.Wright stopped it as well as he could. For month after month, year after year, he constructed furze hedges. As fast as they were overwhelmed he raised fresh ones on top of the others. Eventually he had mighty ramparts some 60 feet in height. Because of these ramparts the sand was confined to a space of nine to ten acres. Into this sand Mr. Wright mixed hundreds of loads of good soil and manure. In one year he had managed to reduce it again to fertile land. He then cleared all his walls, and with the assistance of his neighbours, who helped him cart away1500 loads in a month, he cut a passage to his house through the main body of sand. The other end of the village met with a worse fate where many houses were overthrown or buried
The Great Sand Flood in Santon Downham (http://santondownham.org/index.php?id=92)

John Evelyn, the noted diarist, wrote in 1677 of "….The Travelling Sands, about ten miles wide of Euston, that have so damaged the country, rolling from place to place, and like the sands in the deserts of Libya, quite overwhelmed some gentleman's whole estates….."

William Gilpin in 1769 was surprised to find "….such a piece of absolute desert almost in the heart of England" and that "Nothing was to be seen on either side but sand and scattered gravel without the least vegetation; a mere African desert."

As late as 1829 David Davy described the Brandon area of being "….as barren a waste as ever I saw; the soil appears to produce nothing but rabbits and flints for a considerable distance……"

The connection between the dunes at Wangford and the sand flood in Santon Downham in 1668 has yet to be established, as has the cause of the event itself. A team consisting of Dr.Steve Godby from Anglia Polytechnic University in Cambridge and Dr. Mark Bateman of the University of Sheffield are conducting research into the event and its significance. Before adding to the sandstorm story, we need the answer to two questions; where did the sand come from in the first place and why was it on the move?

Speculation as to why the sand flood took place in the first place has tended to centre on the roll of the rabbits, mainly based on the information provided by Thomas Wright in his letter to the Royal Society in which he identified Lakenheath Warren as the source area for the sand.

Another factor that may be of great importance is climate. If the vegetation in the area were sparse due to climatic influences such as cold and dry conditions then the wind would be more effective as an erosional agent. 1668 and the preceding years during which the sand flood event took place fall within a period known as the little Ice Age (1550-1850 A.D.),

Although this article mentions the little Ice Age the previous article as this to say about the !!th Century Sand Flood.

Why all this activity? As in many natural systems, the sands are poised on the edge; a small disturbance can have large consequences. The Nevada disaster and the simultaneous outbreak in Norfolk each happened during the Medieval Warm Period, when both sides of the Atlantic suffered a shift in weather patterns that led to hot, dry summers. In low-lying East Anglia, the rise and fall of ground water in sympathy with the oceans also plays a part.

Is sand not transformed during climate change but created by the forces of the change? At the moment most of the planets in our Solar System are getting warmer (http://www.livescience.com/environment/070312_solarsys_warming.html). Yet the Global warming on Earth is due to man? From the little Ice Age to the Medieval Warm Period the earth changes with or without us. What is interesting is that the Sand Floods seem to happen during times of change, be it cold or warm.

Another thing is that the great Catastrope ears we are told about, according to scientist were caused by "meteorites or super massive volcanoes". But according to the climate records they have, these events happened slightly after large changes in the Earths climate were happening. Were the events actually massive Plasma Discharges or EU events caused by the changes in the Earths energy or the energy in the Solar system. Was the climate change the trigger for the Catastrophe and not the other way round?

Was sand sudenly created back in the day and how?

If sand is created as a result of Electric Universe activity then if there is an sudden change or increase in the Earths role in the EU it may produce not just more sand but other materials. Sand is found where water is but that does not mean the water helped create it. Water and sand go together. Fossil water is found in sand and of course you have oasis in the deserts.

The land of Egypt was a fertile place or had a lot more water than it has today. The Nubian Sandstone Aquifer System (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nubian_Sandstone_Aquifer_System) is partly found in Egypt. It is interesting to note that the NSAS is a mixture offerruginous sandstone, shale and clay. Water is produced from the earth and clay is very much part of that process. Is it created due to the differences between the layers or do they act like a resistor or transformer?

Desert Glass if found around Africa and the Middle East for example Libyan desert glass (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libyan_desert_glass). Glass is produced in sand when struck by lightning, called fulgurites. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fulgurites) It is likely that all the mysterious glass was produced by a catastrophe event. Maybe after the last Squatter Man or Tree of Life was seen in the skies?

Was the land of Egypt and Northern Africa transformed into sand very quickly during a catastrophe or did the different energy patterns of the earth quickly change the land to sand?

Is sand being created today but not by erosion?

Is sand created by a plasma discharge event or as part of the exchange process?


Lightning is very active over the desert areas. The area of the sea shore is also an area of great electrical potential.  Is sand produced a plasma discharge?

Are deserts being born from the earth itself, not the soil?

If the creation of some sand is an EU event can the increase of the deserts be an actual creation of sand, not the soil being transformed into sand?
