Please Place Evidence of the 7 of 10 Plate Movements Here

Kojima had created small snips of Konstantin's animation of the 7 of 10 Plate Movements.

Here is the full 7 of 10 Animation by Konstantin.

This blog is the place to document ongoing earth changes related to the 7 of 10  plate movements as described by the Zetas.

ZetaTalk: 7 of 10 Sequence
written October 16, 2010

The 7 of 10 scenarios describe plate movements, and for this to occur something has to release the deadlock, the current stalemate where the plates are locked against each other. Once the deadlock is broken and the plates start moving, sliding past each other, new points where the plates are locked against each other develop, but these are weaker locks than the one at present. The current lock, as we have so often stated, is the Indo-Australian Plate which is being driven under the Himalayans. This is no small lock, as the height of the Himalayans attests. Nevertheless, the activity in this region shows this likely to be the first of the 7 of 10 scenarios to manifest. Bangladesh is sinking and the Coral Sea is rising, showing the overall tipping of the Indo-Australian Plate. Now Pakistan is sinking and not draining its floods as it should, while Jakarta on the tongue of Indonesia is also sinking rapidly, showing that the tilt that will allow Indonesia to sink has already started.

Meanwhile, S America is showing signs of a roll to the west. Explosions on islands just to the north of the S American Plate occurred recently, on Bonaire and Trinidad-Tobago, and the Andes are regularly being pummeled. There is a relationship. As the Indo-Australia Plate lifts and slides, this allows the Pacific plates to shift west, which allows S America to shift west also. This is greatly increased by the folding of the Mariana Trench and the Philippine Plate. But it is the Indo-Australian Plate that gives way to incite change in these other plates, and this is what is manifesting now to those closely following the changes. Once the folding of the Pacific has occurred, Japan has been destabilized. We are not allowed to give a time frame for any of these plate movements, but would point out that it is not until the North Island of Japan experiences its strong quakes that a tsunami causing sloshing near Victoria occurs. There are clues that the New Madrid will be next.

Where the N American continent is under great stress, it has not slipped because it is held in place on both sides. The Pacific side holds due to subduction friction along the San Andreas, and the Atlantic side holds due to the Atlantic Rift's reluctance to rip open. What changes this dynamic? When S America rolls, almost in step with the folding Pacific, it tears the Atlantic Rift on the southern side. This allows Africa freedom to move and it rolls too, dropping the Mediterranean floor above Algeria. What is holding the N American continent together has thus eased, so that when the Japan adjustments are made, there is less holding the N American continent in place than before, and the New Madrid gives way. We are also not allowed to provide the time frame between the Japan quakes and New Madrid. Other than the relationship in time between the New Madrid and the European tsunami, no time frame can be given. The sequence of events is, thus:

  • a tipping Indo-Australia Plate with Indonesia sinking,
  • a folding Pacific allowing S America to roll,
  • a tearing of the south Atlantic Rift allowing Africa to roll and the floor of the Mediterranean to drop,
  • great quakes in Japan followed by the New Madrid adjustment,
  • which is followed almost instantly by the tearing of the north Atlantic Rift with consequent European tsunami.

Folding Pacific


South American Roll


African Roll


Japan Quakes

New Madrid

European Tsunami


Due to the slowing of the 7 of 10 plate movements by the Council of Worlds the impact of some of the events described above will be lessened.

The Zetas explain:

ZetaTalk: Pace Slowed

Written May 19, 2012

The effect of the thousands of humming boxes placed along fault lines and plate borders can be seen in several incidents that have occurred since the start of the 7 of 10 plate movements. The lack of tsunami during the 7 of 10 sinking of the Sunda Plate is one such example. We predicted at the start of the 7 of 10 scenarios in late 2010 that the Sunda Plate sinking would occur within 2-3 weeks, yet it dragged on through 2011. At the time we had predicted tsunami on the Sunda Plate, in general equivalent in height to the loss of elevation for a coastline. None of this occurred due to the slower pace. 

The pace of mountain building in S America, where slowed, has still resulted in rumpling up and down the Andes, and stretch zone accidents likewise in lands to the east of the Andes. The shape of S America has clearly changed. Will the islands in the Caribbean be spared? At some point, as with the magnitude 7.9 quake in Acapulco on March 2, 2012 a significant adjustment will need to occur, and this will include depressing the Caribbean Plate so it tilts, sinking the islands and lands on that portion of the plate to the degree predicted. But the S American roll will likely continue to avoid the magnitude 8 quakes we originally predicted in deference to slow rumpling mountain building. The African roll was anticipated to be a silent roll in any case, so the slowed pace would not affect the outcome.

Will the slowed pace prevent the 7 of 10 scenarios for the Northern Hemisphere? Bowing of the N American continent has reached the point of pain, with breaking rock booming from coast to coast, but still there have been no significant quakes in the New Madrid area. Yet this is past due, and cannot be held back indefinitely. What has and will continue to occur for the Northern Hemisphere scenarios are silent quakes for Japan, which has already experienced drastic subduction under the north island of Hokkaido where mountain building is occurring as a rumple rather than a jolt. However, the anticipated New Madrid adjustment cannot be achieved without trauma. But this could potentially occur in steps and stages such that any European tsunami would be significantly lessened.

ZetaTalk , Written March 10, 2012

 What happens when the pace of plate movement is slowed? The likelihood of tsunami is definitely reduced, as can be seen in the sinking on the Sunda Plate. The sinking occurred, and is almost complete, yet the possibility of tsunami we predicted for various regions on the Sunda Plate were avoided. The height and force of a tsunami is directly related to the degree of displacement in the sea floor, and if this happens in steps rather than all at once the displacement will be less for any given step.

This bodes well for the European tsunami. If the Council of Worlds is still imposing a slower pace on the 7 of 10 plate movements, this tsunami will definitely be lessened. The tear in the North Atlantic will be slight, each time. The amount of water pouring into this void will be less, each time. And the rebound toward the UK will likewise be less, each time. But our prediction is the worst case situation, and it also reflects what the Earth changes, unabated, would produce.

But what does a slower pace do to land masses where jolting quakes are expected? Does this reduce the overall magnitude of the quakes anticipated? Large magnitude quakes result when a catch point along plate borders is highly resistant, but snapping of rock finally results. Usually there is one place, the epicenter, where this catch point resides and a long distance along the plate border where smaller quakes have prepared the border for easy movement. A point of resistance within the body of a plate, such as the New Madrid, can likewise resist and suddenly give.

There is no way to lessen the resistance at these catch points, though the tension that accompanies such points can be reduced so that the quake itself is delayed. What this means for a slower 7 of 10 pace is that large magnitude quakes will be spread apart in time, and their relationship to our predictions thus able to be camouflaged by the establishment. Where sinking (such as the Caribbean Island of Trinidad) or spreading apart (such as to the west of the Mississippi River) are to occur, these land changes will eventually arrive. But like the sinking of the Sunda Plate, a slower pace unfortunately allows the cover-up time to maneuver and develop excuses.

Geological Phenomenon: Mass Of Warm Rock Is Rising Beneath Surface Of New England – An enormous mass of warm rock is rising slowly but steadily toward the surface of New England and for now, researchers cannot explain this kind of abrupt activity.

“Our study challenges the established notion of how the continents on which we live behave,” Vadim Levin, a geophysicist and professor at Rutgers University-New Brunswick, stated in a press release.

“The upwelling we detected is like a hot air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England.”

“It is not Yellowstone (National Park)-like, but it’s a distant relative in the sense that something relatively small – no more than a couple hundred miles across – is happening.”

The study focused on New England, because scientists had previously documented an area of great warmth (hundreds of degrees Celsius warmer than neighboring areas) in the Earth’s upper mantle. For two years, data was gathered by the National Science Foundation’s EarthScope program and thousands of seismic measurement devices, which were 46.6 miles apart, covered the continental United States.

“We’re interested in what happens at the interface between tectonic plates – thick, solid parts that cover our planet – and material in the upper mantle beneath the plates,” Levin said.

“We want to see how North America is gliding over the deeper parts of our planet. It is a very large and relatively stable region, but we found an irregular pattern with rather abrupt changes in it.

The observations of seismic activity point to the upwelling pattern detected beneath central Vermont and western New Hampshire, but it’s also under western Massachusetts.

“The Atlantic margin of North America did not experience intense geologic activity for nearly 200 million years,” Levin said. “It is now a so-called ‘passive margin’ – a region where slow loss of heat within the Earth and erosion by wind and water on the surface are the primary change agents.

So we did not expect to find abrupt changes in physical properties beneath this region, and the likely explanation points to a much more dynamic regime underneath this old, geologically quiet area.”

“It will likely take millions of years for the upwelling to get where it’s going,” he added. “The next step is to try to understand how exactly it’s happening.”

The study was published in Geology.


Seismic evidence for a recently formed mantle upwelling beneath New England

Lateral changes in seismic velocity 100–300 km beneath the Appalachian orogen (eastern North America) do not follow the pattern of its major terranes, suggesting that more recent, and possibly ongoing, geodynamic processes are taking place in the sub-lithospheric mantle. One prominent, sharply delineated, seismically slow feature underlying parts of New England (USA) likely reflects a volume of significantly elevated temperatures in the asthenosphere.

Using numerous new observations of splitting in seismic shear waves from distant earthquakes, we show that this upper mantle volume also lacks the systematic directional dependence (anisotropy) of seismic wave speed that is ubiquitous beneath most of northeastern North America.

This regional anisotropic fabric, which likely forms as the asthenosphere is sheared by North American plate motion, appears to be locally erased beneath central New England, with changes in its strength occurring over distances on the order of 50 km.

Highly localized variation in the strength of seismic anisotropy in a region of strongly elevated asthenospheric temperature suggests the presence of a narrow thermal upwelling in the upper mantle beneath New England. The lack of obvious surface expressions (volcanism or uplift) and the small lateral scale of the hypothesized upwelling suggest a geologically recent phenomenon.

Land subsidence, not climate change, is the cause of water intrusion in and around Chesapeake Bay

GPS Data source: MIDAS - Nevada Geodetic LaboratoryBlewitt, G., C. Kreemer, W.C. Hammond, and J. Gazeaux (2016). MIDAS robust trend estimator for accurate GPS station velocities without step detection, Journal of Geophysical Research, 121, doi:10.1002/2015JB012552

Severe flooding in Louisiana. Associated USA flood around Gulf of Mexico with 7 of 10? I do not know why but I think it is a loss of height. [and from another] Flood waters submerged parts of southern Louisiana Tuesday after heavy rains caused flash flooding and forced hundreds of rescues. The National Weather Service estimated 12 to 18 inches of rain fell across the region, with totals reaching up to 20 inches in some areas. Among the hardest hit areas in Lafayette Parish was Carencro, where reports indicated water was as high as high as 8 feet on some roads.

Just as the bowing in the S American Plate has produced stretching and consequent sinking in the swath of land from Rio to Buenos Aires, the bowing in the N American Plate has produced stretching and consequent sinking along the eastern seaboard and land bordering the Gulf of Mexico. Stretched land has only so many options. It can rip open to form a crevasse or a landslide or a sinkhole, or rock layers can pull apart so that train rails zip and zag and cause derailments and bridges pull from their moorings. In this case there is an adjustment in certain places, a pulling apart, which relieves the stress. 

Stretched land also almost invariably drops in elevation, because the crust is thinned. This may not be apparent on the surface if the rock layers are pulling apart deep underground or under a river bed. But the underlying rock cannot spread out and thin without some evidence of this process above. For Florida, this evidence is the increasing number of sinkholes swallowing houses. Lopsided buildings, drooping roadways, and swamps extending their borders are other such symptoms. Drainage is invariably affected, as water lingers where it formerly drained. Rains and tides thus confuse the issue, with high tides blamed for much flooding, when sinking due to stretching is the cause.

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for March 17, 2012

6 November, 2017. "Land Subsidence" Is The Sinking Or Lowering Of The Land Surface, Mostly Due To Human Activity

A report released in October 2017 by the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change (NIPCC), titled “Will Global Warming Overflow Chesapeake Bay?”, says the available research indicates water intrusion problems in the area around the Chesapeake Bay are not due to sea-level rise induced by anthropogenic (man-caused) global warming, “but primarily to land subsidence due to groundwater depletion and, to a lesser extent, subsidence from glacial isostatic adjustment." <...>

Bezdek also points out bedrock in the mid-Atlantic states is slowly moving downward in response to the melting of the Laurentide ice sheet, which covered a large chunk of North America during the most recent ice age. “When the ice sheet still existed, the weight of the ice pushed the underlying Earth’s crust downward and, in response, areas away from the ice sheet were forced upward (called glacial forebulge),” Bezdek wrote. “The southern Chesapeake Bay region is in the glacial forebulge area and was forced upward by the Laurentide ice sheet. … As the ice melted and its weight was removed, glacial forebulge areas, which previously had been forced upward, began sinking and continue to sink. This movement of Earth’s crust in response to ice loading or melting is called glacial isostatic adjustment.” - Tim Benson (2017, November 6).

What's behind the recent worst floods in the history of Penang, Malaysia? ZetaTalk knows the answer.

And again we see strange high tides that prevent water from flowing:

State flood mitigation committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow said the situation was made worse by the high tide as most rivers and drains could not cope with the high volume of water." [3]

While the number of floods has increased:

"Penang records 119 flash flood incidences since 2013: State govt

Penang has experienced a total of 119 flash flood incidences since 2013 until Oct 15 this year. State Local Government Committee chairman Chow Kon Yeow said there were 22 flash flood incidences in 2013, 20 cases (2014), 26 cases (2015), 30 cases (2016) and 21 cases between January and Oct 15 this year.

<...> She said some of the flash flood incidences were not necessarily caused by heavy rainfall." [5]

Tide Gauge data

Tide gauge data [1], D3.js code [8]

We see a slight rise in sea level, especially since 2010. But these data have many drawbacks and and they can't be used in terms of the scale of subsidence (sinking). This is only an indirect proof, as there is obviously still a sea-level rise factor. Nevertheless, some scientists use this data to determine the land subsidence.

Tide gauge data [1], D3.js code [8]

But there some issue:

"FOLLOWING PSMSL DOCUMENTATION ADDED 19-Sep-2012 : From the publication Tidal Observation Records 2010 the Primary benchmark has changed from BM P0001 to BM P0379 4.962m above TGZ." [1] 

Can this 'damage' the data? I did not find any information about this, so we can only guess.

GNSS data

As the some data in Penang province are incomplete and I used the nearest data from the Kedah province, Pendang (Kedah also suffered from floods).

GNSS data - Nevada Geodetic Laboratory [4], D3.js code [8]

Data can be processed by these instructions

Main step:

"Since units from xyz2latlon.m are degrees (for latitude and longitude) and meters (for height), convert each to mm before plotting. This will show the north, east and vertical change in position over time better than the actual position"

Instead of matlab I used Excel.

Penang floods. Image source:

We see gradual sinking. Can we say that sinking in Kedah has such a velocity? No. GNSS is just point, while sinking can be uneven (and this is confirmed by satellite data and etc)


How accurate a guide are the current elevation maps provided by Google and GPS? If they reflect land that lies on solid rock, on a plate that will remain level and not tilt, accurate enough. But as we have explained, Java and Sumatra are land that is rubble, scrapped up as the plate tongue has been pushed down in the past. It is an illusion of solid land when rubble can jumble and toss. The placement of Jakarta in the past involved some logic, as tests were made to determine if the rock beneath could sustain buildings. But sinking is occurring there, not admitted in the press. At some point the airport will become unusable. In addition to the issue of solid rock vs jumble, there is the issue of the accordion folding of the plate tongue. Some parts will rise, others sink, and this will not be an even process nor even predictable. Thus Google will not be a certain guide to what lands will sink or stay above the waves.

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for January 22, 2011

So we can really say that Pendang, Kedah province is sinking (but the velocity and scale is a mystery)

Meanwhile, a small scandal is flaring up:

"6 November, 2017. Met Dept denies giving late warning on heavy rain in Penang

The Malaysian Meteorological Department (Met Dept) has denied claims that it was late in issuing a warning about the severe thunderstorm that hit Penang and Kedah on Saturday.
It was responding to a claim by the Penang branch of the Federation of Malaysian Manufacturers (FMM) which said that the Met Dept’s warning was only issued at 9.30pm on Saturday.

Floods cause havoc in Penang, Kedah and Perak. Source of image:

Penang FMM chairperson Ooi Eng Hock was reported as saying that the Met Dept warning only came at 9.30pm on Saturday, just hours before the severe thunderstorm lashed the state.
“What is the use of issuing such a warning at night when the heavy rainfall started early in the morning (a few hours later)?
“Didn’t the department forecast heavy rainfall coming to the area due to a tropical storm?
“Is our meteorological radar equipment so backdated that we cannot forecast this bad weather affecting our country?” he was quoted as saying in Malaysiakini." [2]


Land sinking (or subsidence) is one of the factors that worsens floods. From 2013 there were already 119 flash floods in Penang! [5]. High tides prevent water from draining, which may indicate temporary loss of elevation. Sinking makes the land more prone to flooding and causes more 'water stagnation'. In combination with a record rain, all this leads to an increasingly strong flooding and the current flood has become the worst in the history of the state of Penang [6]

Is there a method that will prove that Penang is slowly sinking? Yes, it's Sentinel-1 but this another research

There are at least twelve sites in the country's capital with critical deformations. We are talking about the City of MEXICO who according to a recent study is sinking
in an accelerated and irregular way. In some places the city sank 40 cm a year in another 20.

These cracks that are generated reach the surface by destroying street and house pipes. Government authorities have commissioned the CENAPRED Department of Geophysics and Disaster Prevention to identify and map the phenomenon.

No 1 of 10 region 24million people affected:

Floods claim more than 800 lives across India, Nepal and Bangladesh

Millions affected by severe flooding in south Asia, as aid agencies struggling to cope with disaster warn of food shortages and risk of disease

More than 800 people have been killed and 24 million affected following widespread floods across south Asia.

Severe flooding has devastated communities and destroyed crops in India, Nepal and Bangladesh, with NGOs warning of food shortages and the risk of disease.

In Bangladesh, where the floods are thought to be the most severe in 100 years, more than a third of the country has been submerged. Najibullah Hameem, chief of field office for the UN children’s agency, Unicef, in Bangladesh, told the Guardian on Monday that water levels are now going down, but that aid workers are running out of crucial supplies needed to protect communities from disease. At least 115 people have died and more than 5.7 million are affected.

“The need is huge and our resources are limited. We cannot respond to all of what people require in this situation,” he said. “[Agencies had made plans based] on last year, when the flood was not serious like this. We had not expected the number of communities that are currently affected.”

Last week, most government departments had run out of medicines and items such as jerry cans, tarpaulin and water purification tablets. Supplies have since been replenished, but are still short of demand.

Survivors of the flood are returning to find their homes destroyed, Hameem said. “In terms of water level the situation is improving but there might be rain again, and if so the waters will go up again. They need to repair their houses – some are completely washed out. We are expecting more medical issues and disease.”

Unicef is trying to collect information on children affected by the floods, who may have been separated from their families, or be at risk of drowning and snakebites. In four of the districts most severely affected, all schools are closed, leaving children unable to finish their exams, which are held over the summer months.

Mark Pierce, country director for Save the Children in Bangladesh, warned that the central and southern areas of the country now face devastation as flood waters flow from the north.

“An enormous volume of water has to pass through the country, and people need to take care, stay away from flood waters and evacuate their homes as necessary. The humanitarian situation remains extremely serious and will be for some time.

“The sheer scale of this crisis means there still isn’t enough food or clean drinking water. More than half a million homes have been damaged while over 400,000 hectares of farmland was destroyed. We’re doing all we can to help, but much more assistance is urgently needed,” said Pierce.

In the Indian state of Assam, which borders Bangladesh, at least 180 people have been killed in the past few weeks. “With the floods washing away everything … there is not even a trace of our small thatched hut,” said Lakshmi Das, a mother of three, living in Kaliabor, Assam.

“We do not even have a second pair of clothes to wear. The government is not providing any aid.”

Ravikant Upadhyay, team leader of Assam flood response for Care India, said communities have been devastated. “The embankment of rivers in many areas have been breached, forcing over 400 families to stay in extremely unhygienic conditions. Most people have lost everything including important documents. Schools are submerged under eight feet of water. Overall, the flood survivors are very worried and in dire need of support,” he said.

In the eastern Indian state of Bihar, at least 253 people lost their lives. Heavy rains have destroyed crops, roads and disrupted power supplies.

Thomas Chandy, CEO of Save the Children in India, warned of a secondary health crisis as flood waters began to retreat in some areas.

“Even though we’re seeing flood waters receding in some parts, it provides little respite as the mammoth recovery operation is only just beginning,” Chandy said.

“One of the big challenges is preventing potential outbreaks of disease like cholera or diarrhoea, which is an increased risk at this time. A lot of water sources have been contaminated by the floods, and many children are living in damp conditions that are conducive to getting sick.”

In Nepal, 141 people are confirmed dead, while more than 38,000 households have been severely affected by floods.

Madhav P Dhakal, response and recovery coordinator for Care Nepal, said the NGO is handing out “dignity kits” (hygiene and sanitary materials for women), ready-to-cook food and water purifiers. “All the water taps were completely covered by the flooded water, so there is a big need for water purifiers,” he said.

Aid workers are also providing health education and running health camps to prevent disease outbreaks. Dhakal added: “Mosquito nets are in high need because of the water level in the areas and high chances of malaria and other mosquito bites communicable diseases. Symptoms of skin diseases, eye problems and fevers have been recorded among the flood-affected people.”

The heavy rains have also hit Kaziranga national park in India’s Assam state. The park hosts two-thirds of the world’s population of endangered Indian one-horned rhinoceroses.

Around 225 dead animals have been recovered since 12 August, including 15 rhinos and a Bengal tiger.
