Noah’s Practicum Update 2017.
New Keyword found, polymerization is the scientific term necessary to understand the known process which creates Gopher Wood out of peat. I believe if we examine the high elevation plateau’s for some evidence to what is Gopher wood, sadly it may be to no avail. For Geological Strata that buoyant would have been ripped from the ground during the Great Flood. With not enough time since to renew the former plains of Gopher wood into a visible reality. We have the knowledge and technical savvy to recreate a reasonable facsimile in our minds.
By definition, polymerization creates many things named something else including Amber and Jet. Mistakenly thought of as semi precious stones, both are actually Amorphous compounds and of organic origin, not crystalline as true rock is. Truly a very slow process, yet please watch the linked videos below and ask yourself, what is missing? Knowing Pre-Flood was the only possible period of time known, long enough to stack Gopher wood into existence. See the polymerization of high altitude peat, as the first step towards rediscovering a common word no longer lost to us and enjoy your tour.
Go ahead laugh, they did back then too, for few had the nerve of Noah’s householder. Miss the preface miss a lot. Yet, did you know, every blade of grass grown on this earth is from a genus that became wood. Even as a real carpenter it took a while for even me to remember that fact. Upon sprouting leaves do trees lose the right to be seen from their true origin? Any Experts out there ready to Vet this?!. Peat away from moss, in reference terms, as a land fabric type, of woven strata. Our first link to Gopher wood is actually the thing missing that allowed this lake to exist.
Just a Theory? Fraud? Myth? Legend? Or rescue effort we know less about than we wish? Making such a solemn thing worth repair, for today’s world, absolutely practicum? Standing alone is not what people do best, joining & getting on, is basic instinct per person. Being a person related to all people. Finding the outside dimensions of Turtle Island, in direct relation to Noah’s time and labour upon the interior dimensions, got me dreaming out loud, beyond box?!. There are a few facts that need correcting among the ideas suggested by the makers of the next film. Most importantly, lake Titicaca was created by a great flood, not glacial melt. Salinity tests conducted prove this lake and the surrounding mud and silt are deposits made during a deluge that crested the mountains surrounding it around four thousand years ago.
Firstly as the Ark’s essential ingredient has never been fully understood 20 20. Gratefully there is hope on the horizon that a real definition will be found, accepted and understood in our lifetimes. This link was established to serve those seeking an answer. Noah’s Practicum actually contends almost nothing, and is out to prove that Gopher wood is truly as legendary as we believe. In proper forum as is fair with such a, valued unseen wood. Right now, the best we can do is point a simple overseen fact out to everyone & pray. Imagine the water as an ancient Gopher wood bed in the making.
There is a passage that states something telling. For people used to travel back to the landing place of Noah’s Ark to chip away pieces of the bitumen or pitch. Polishing the pieces as keepsakes of remembrance. And to polish the said pitch, it had to be hard, thus we believe prior polymerization must have occurred. Beneath the old world Peat growth that once filled the site of modern day lake Titicaca. Is possibly the answer to what is Gopher wood. By imagining a high altitude Peat moss bed. Left undisturbed for ages, grass root growth weaves upon its self, until devoid of soil.
Create layer upon layer of knit together roots, yet it takes time for the seeping resins to build and collect. Thousands upon thousands of years or maybe even millions of tiny contributions. Compressing the air entrained peat remains and resin compounds into a mystery we aim to unravel. Surpassing the finer qualities of our best hardwoods, yet so actually low in density, it floats as some Amber does at sea. As a carpenter I can truly see the patina, more tortoise bellied, hard as shell? Having worked with many laminated products, this theory took a while to firmly believe, now I do.
Seeking Gopher Wood
Seeking to see the polymerization of high altitude peat remains as Gopher wood. May need time for people to investigate more thoroughly. yet confidently we should in good conscious. To better explain, picture a micro honeycombed fabric made of hollow, air filled tubules, or to be clear, the finest hairlike roots. Thatch so thick it becomes peat, yet differing from lowland growth in that there are dryer seasons.
Altitude and Seasons
During which naturally occurring insoluble resins seep down to the deeper layers in the tiniest of amounts. Yet over the vastness of time pre-flood, across plains that still grow today, may it once have accumulated. Possibly creating a long unseen myriad of strata. Not only varying in densities and polymerization, naturally becoming of a buoyancy and strength today’s composite shipbuilders vie to emulate. Allowing only the words Gopher wood, to ably and rightly describe such an evolution, once another process of creation becomes unraveled.
having a low density, and some variants able to float in seawater. Is it really a great leap to apply the polymerization process to above the treeline. As these grasses also produce resins released during life-cycles. With intentional study, finding and determining a rate of measurable polymerized peat production, may offer our first glimpse into what Gopher wood is and where it comes from. Harvested by digging in the ground as a “Gopher”, too simple to believe, yet respectfully someone should speak to high altitude miners. What they may call a vein of low grade Amber they might just blast out of the way, for being too full of airy peat.
Example in Use
Which in the next video I ask you to watch are blocks of Peat. Cut from the shoreline and used to place layers of reeds upon. Reminds me of how one of the builders described how they once would find clean peat, or dirt free peat, yet as such is becoming rare, less and less is found. If not for the Uros people managing the ecosystem of lake Titicaca over the last several centuries. The totora reeds would most likely have consumed much of the lake, especially if left unchecked, and untouched by man. Though honestly that is possibly the most necessary condition to re-createing our lost Gopher wood stocks.
Imagining again that lake Titicaca was once one such stacked plain of ancient Gopher wood. I would ask, with the lake measuring one hundred and forty miles by forty miles, is seeing the possibility of a ten mile long Keel unrealistic? Hopeful you shall, as literally, you have just seen the backbone of Noah’s Practicum. Only newly proposed, the processes of polymerization are a known science, that may lead us to answers well deserved and awaited.
Requiring little more than diligent faith, we have posted this theory in hopes of initiating expert discussion. We work to build a forum to collect feedback and connect Field Experts and researchers unknown that read these words over the next few years. Please return often as from Bow to Beam, reverse engineering a definition about Gopher wood, may prove new adventures are always just beginning. In the next video, an expert on early humanity shows us how quickly we can find something to work with, and the actual high quality of such primary tools.
Food for Thought
After considering the density of Peat, and adding the polymerization process to the theory. Better than buoyancy was found, durability, that’s the key. As most who know of pitch, expect some form of natural resin involved at the start. If ancient peat beds, as theorized become saturated in polymerizing resins. That they exited on the high plateaus not only makes sense, it’s the best place to launch, at the top and near the end of the flooding. Avoiding much of the debris, allows sight of a larger craft or Ark than expected, yet with an actual capacity the fits description. Follow through with Noah’s Practicum as we virtually tour the world in search of a fleet of Arks, not just one.
What is Gopher wood
After careful study, of the world pre-flood, soon it may be revealed that deep beneath the many high altitude plains of the continents. The hidden plateaus once covered in plains of grass so thick, is where the mysterious and legendary Gopher wood was created unseen. In such vast quantities worldwide, that many City sized vessels could have possibly been prepared. The reason for the next 3 videos is simple. Even with our best wooden ship building techniques, is there not a wood that can withstand a thousand foot wave that crests the deck. Still these dreamers build some fantastic re-creations, enjoy.
The idea of Noah’s Ark being of ship lap or timber frame design is old. As most of the movies made indicate yet realistically if carved out of one piece of wood that still wouldn’t solve the problems faced by rough open waters. The workmanship on these models is beautiful, yet the real ships they represent were made for existing sea standards.
The debris flows alone would make navigation of these kinds of craft impossible during worldwide flooding. Any craft that wished to survive would need to be able to diffuse a thousand foot crest for starters. Needing the ability to shrug off millions of gallons of water. Whilst maintaining a level deck and flow controls, as a submersible would. For most of the reasons listed among these pages, Noah’s Practicum is leaning towards the Arks being given an appropriate hull shape, Turtlish, yeah.
See Polymerized Peat
Again imagine a plain of dry Peat. Tens of miles wide and long, hundreds of feet deep, maybe even thousands. Polymerized Peat hulls hewn from beneath highland plains, in consideration of the extreme conditions to be faced. The space within may be hollowed out, and reinforced with rigid materials. Readied tunnels, expanded seasonally, before long, until ready for 40 days of hard rain. Almost any size plain from the old world on high, was definitely denser than today, and if left untouched, may have served.
Thatch or Peat regardless of what you call it, is roots tougher than any wood fibers. Stacking up for ages, and getting the time for polymerization, or may we say Gophering to occur? As polymerization is considered a normal process and characteristic of lowland Peat. Is it not reasonable to believe that the same occurs at higher elevations. In the next video is an explanation about buoyancy and density, and very interesting.
Discovering Gopher Wood
Unfortunately I believe most plains containing Gopher wood were lost or used during the flood. A coordinated effort may reveal evidence, yet trespass not! For if this be one of the suspected dry dock site, I believe helped save us as a people, be respectful please to what remains. How many places have been tore up looking for wood, have care. To prior Ark researchers, that disqualified their findings for discovering Peat in place of the suspected wood.
Luckily all is not lost, the Ultrasound tests & resulting data may now be re-examined. Seeking the truth, by bringing attention to the polymerization of Peat as more than a distant and remote process. Keep in mind as we continue to explore this theory. Keenly watch as the next video allows us to see an easy to understand polymer resin and woven fabric construction example. Do try to imagine the canoe as a valley that fills up with Gopher wood, with the sides seen as mountain ranges, all around.
Update 2017, I found two videos recently that are extremely interesting, and as a woodworker, leaves me full of questions. Apparently they found a polymer producing fungus that their videos illustrates better than I. If proven safe, this kind of thinking shall save our planet. Also makes me ask the question. What would this fungus do to a high altitude plain of peat?
Out of modern day Tiahuanaco, lake Titicaca, and Puma Punku, to beyond Peru. I believe a miracle happened. Involving the entire world and the surrounding South American villages and supporting cities of many nations, as building such a thing, would need the realm’s best from everywhere, once. As it did when Noah stood for us all, maybe today, the rainbow promise be believed, as right? Check front page for compiling unbiased Video Link lists mostly thanks to the freedom of YouTube.
