An internet search of the above question suggests that the Earth appears to be losing its magnetism. And the key word in that statement is ‘appears.’
The definitive answer lies in the future. Most of those writing and researching the topic believe that the Earth’s magnetic field is generated by the shifting liquid core. They state that the liquid core is 50 times more magnetic than the surface of the Earth. The view taken here is that the magnetic field resides in the solid central core and solid outer crust which comprises 65% of Earth. The field that we experience and observe as Earth’s magnetism lies predominantly in the outer 45% or the mantle. But it is under the influence of the solid inner core which is the more stable magnetic feature of Earth. Consider that the inner core throws its field through the entire outer layers into space, it is theoretically of dense iron which is the most magnetic of the elements, it lies at the center of a gravitational mass and that magnetism is self-centering. All these factors contribute to its role in influencing the outer crust and outer core. Another way to say it is that it programs the outer mantle over time.
(** Note: North Pole of Earth is actually in the South and South Pole is in the North but to reduce confusion in images North is shown in North.)
Consider also that all magnets exhibit a Bloch Wall (Dielectric Plane) at the center. Adding or subtracting to a magnet instantly shifts this plane to the center. It projects outwards in a plane through the structure into space. The Bloch Wall of Earth is never mentioned or depicted in images of Earth’s magnetic field as if it does not exist. This is most likely because the Earth is a composite of two magnetic fields overlaying each other. The field thrown outwards (and inwards) by the outer mantle has its own Bloch Wall. The plane is contorted because it is a composite of at least two fields and because the north and south pole of Earth are not 180 degrees opposite from each other at this time.
One can see in the image below that two magnets in close proximity that are not in a simple configuration such as N-S-N-S display erratic fields as shown in the Ferrocell image here. Shifting the magnets shifts the field.
It can also be demonstrated with a Ferrocell that the strength of the field is additive, meaning the more magnets that are stacked in alignment the stronger the field grows and the more clear the image becomes. It is not that the same magnets spread out lose their magnetism, it is just their ability to influence the light in the Ferrocell is not as effective when separated. Consider how men on a rope-pull acting in unison can achieve more than each alone.
What the Earth is experiencing, that is being observed as a weakening of the field, is a reprogramming of the outer crust by the solid inner core. Bit by bit and slowly over time the particles in the outer crust are coming into alignment with the inner core. The old pattern stored in the outer crust is being induced into a new alignment. The rapid shifting of the North Pole towards True North in the last half century is a result of this realignment. The realignment in the rest of the outer structure will follow. This is a vast and large demonstration of the same effect one sees when one magnetizes a needle. The Southern Poles will do the same but it will happen at its own rate. The end result will be the magnetic pole will appear to rotate around the true pole not because it is still shifting but because that is how the pole on all magnets work. (See Ken Wheeler films and book, “Uncovering the Missing Secrets of Magnetism.”)
For clarification we need to take a step back in time to when this condition existed on Earth before. The following theory is predicated on the idea that during large comet impacts the outer 45% of the bulk of Earth is free to rotate around on the inner liquid core and that such an event occurred as recently as 5000 years ago. At that point in time there was one magnetic field exhibited by Earth with both inner core and outer mantle exhibiting a single field locked together magnetically. The field had a notable Bloch Wall (Dielectric Plane) passing through the equator and magnetic poles that rotated around the true poles. The outer crust exhibited a magnetic field oriented as shown in the image. Upon being struck it rotated to the next most stable position between two magnets as seen in the image below. (To be explained in future post.) The rotated field in the outer layer remained as it had been programmed by the solid inner core for many, many millennia but slowly over time it shifted presumably from the inside to the outside so it was not apparent until very recently. The sum of this changing field that varies over time at any given point is most likely what scientists are measuring without realizing it. Hence, the idea it is weakening.
The new field that develops in the future will be one coherent field as before the strike and a much stronger field than exists now as the bulk of the Earth comes into complete resonance with itself once again. All modern stated theories assume we are at the beginning of a pole shift rather than at the end of a pole shift. In other words, the same data can support a completely different view.
If the time period quoted is accurate then it happened in recorded human history. We have heard the reports in ancient texts and dismiss them as nonsense and superstition. Ancient records tell us the Sun changed its orientation in the sky, that the people in the northern latitudes were afraid of the sky falling and that the Earth experienced a deluge that killed almost everything alive. All of these stories recount the apocalypse. This word comes from Greek and it means ‘to uncover, reveal.’ A closer look at the word apocalypse is needed: a-pock-cull-lap-si or… ‘a’ (continuous, source), pock (pit), cull (killing off), lap (area), si (came to be). Perhaps there were continuous comet impacts (pocks) that uncovered and revealed the land by melting the northern ice sheet. The collapse of the ice sheet caused the deluge. Essentially the event has been recorded in both our ancient stories and words. Yet we have become way too intelligent to believe what we have been told by our elders.
The shift was in some ways fortuitous for a few. The creation of this second magnetic pole a considerable distance from true north and finding its location allowed for precise measurement of longitude and latitude without a clock. By knowing the exact location of magnetic north and using spherical trigonometry, longitude could be determined. Furthermore, keeping the location secret empowered those in the know. They could navigate the world’s oceans with confidence while others got lost.
