    Fascinating as always. I’m glad for this post as Greenland has been on my mind quite a bit lately. I want to share the following article:

    The author suggests that the mythical land of Hyperborea is actually Greenland. This meshes very nicely with everything I’ve seen on the Malaga Bay site. Worth checking out for the maps alone. The author is unaware of expanding earth theory which actually makes his case more compelling!

    There’s an interesting paper that relates to this,
    Thanks for the archive and the pdfs.

      Interesting, johnm33.

      From “P Wave Tomography Beneath Greenland and Surrounding Regions: 2. Lower Mantle“:

      “We deem that the main conduit of the Greenland plume mixes with the Iceland plume incompletely and splits mainly into the Jan Mayen and Svalbard plumes in the upper mantle, which supply magma to the Jan Mayen hotspot and a geothermal area in western Svalbard, respectively.“

      Svalbard, of course, is home to the global seed vault.

      “The seed vault is an attempt to ensure against the loss of seeds in other genebanks during large-scale regional or global crises. The seed vault is managed under terms spelled out in a tripartite agreement among the Norwegian government, the Crop Trust, and the Nordic Genetic Resource Center (NordGen).
      “The Norwegian government entirely funded the vault’s approximately 45 million kr (US$8.8 million in 2008) construction. Storing seeds in the vault is free to end users; Norway and the Crop Trust pay for operational costs. Primary funding for the Trust comes from organisations such as the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and from various governments worldwide.” – Wikipedia
