    Deep inside Earth, scientists find weird blobs and mountains taller than Mount Everest

    My initial thoughts upon reading this article is after the large planetary body struck primordial earth, it split in two surrounding our core. They are now through heat and pressure kept in a semi-liquid-solid state (colloidal solution), and is in turn the cause of, and can feel the effects of, our electromagnetic field. Similar to the way a ferrous-liquid reacts to magnetism to express shape. The rotation of the two bodies create an electrical generator effect, jump starting our magnetosphere.

    If they were those pillars of the earth, that would be even more interesting. Too ambiguous.

    Of course, the inner core is spinning faster then the rest of the earth. After the formation of the moon, the days were 5 hours long. the inner core is "floating" in a slowing liquid.

    The layers are riven by rising plumes of hot rock. And beneath the plumes, two strange blobs roughly the size of Australia bob atop the core, one beneath Africa and one under the Pacific Ocean.

    “More and more, we’re understanding it’s not the standard cartoon picture,” Romanowicz says. “For geodynamicists, it’s a complete revolution.”

    Baffled by the blobs
    The mantle blobs are of special interest because of their impact on life on the surface. Recent work by Maria Tsekhmistrenko, a seismologist at the University of Oxford, confirms the blobs as a source of the hot mantle plumes — and those plumes can trigger devastating supervolcanic eruptions when they surface.

    Her research has found detailed connections between the African blob and the La Reunion mantle plume (currently under Reunion Island, east of Madagascar) that unleashed a wave of eruptions in what is now India 67 million years ago, delivering a one-two punch with the big asteroid impact to kill off the dinosaurs.

    Other plumes led to massive volcanoes that created Iceland and which continue to drive the rumbling activity beneath Yellowstone. “There’s a high correlation between these events, climate changes and mass extinctions over the past few hundred million years,” Tsekhmistrenko says.
