Prior to examining the geophysics of planets, it is necessary to determine how planets were formed. This will reveal the processes involved in planetary phenomena, by identifying the components that generate them.
Geophysics can be considered an intersection between physics and astronomy—the boundary between physical processes of atoms and chemistry, and the stellar ones—otherwise known as, “the planet.” The Reciprocal System of Dewey B. Larson covers a great deal of ground in both areas; yet the Reciprocal System itself has never before delved into the construct of worlds; only a brief summary of their formation1, and the physical processes that occur at the atomic level.2
This paper is a summary of a preliminary investigation into the natural consequences of the Reciprocal System, applied to the study of geophysics. Here, I will propose a model of solar system formation, and the evolution of planets and biospheres, as a natural result of Larson’s “backwards” stellar evolutionary sequence (as compared to modern astronomical theory). From this planetary model, all of the observed Earthly phenomena follow as logical consequence: plate tectonics, “drifting” continents, weather systems, the shifting of the poles, magnetic reversals, global cataclysms… even the whereabouts of the mythical lost continents of Atlantis, Mu and Lemuria, and what lies ahead in the next evolutionary stage.
