But even the Earth crust is in itself magnetic, although significantly weaker and more erratic. The crust takes the form of a thick iron rich sphere surrounding the inner Sun. This magnetic field is opposite that of the inner Sun. The magnetite core of the Earth constitute the magnetic field we measure with compasses and similar equipment. It is however the magnetic crust that plays the leading role in a physical Pole shift. Any such shift will typically not occur spontaneously, rather it will be induced by an outside force. The key player in our Solar system is of course the highly magnetic neutron star Nemesis. Since this star has the habit of periodically inverting its magnetic field, it will inevitably have a huge influence on our general neighborhood, affecting planet Earth in particular.
When Nemesis moves in from the South of the Ecliptic, it has already reversed its magnetic field and the direction of its rotation; a combined effect of the Aphelion passage. The magnetite core of the Earth will be affected first, making the magnetic North and South pole begin to deviate from their standard positions, which indeed is already occurring. Then an impact on the Earth crust will start to be noticeable. Nemesis will attempt to align Earth to a new magnetic polarity, but since the rotation of Earth works as a stabilizing factor, this can't happen at once. Nemesis must first reduce the speed of Earth rotation, down to a near standstill. Then the physical Pole shift will occur and rotation start anew, now seemingly in the other direction. Evidently, this process will profoundly affect the Earth.
In more detail, the physical Pole shift will progress as follows: Initially, the northern part of the Earth crust will begin tipping ~25 degrees towards Nemesis. Then almost at an instant, as the rotation of Earth looses in velocity and reaches zero, Earth will violently swing in the other direction, performing a ~160 degree roll. The oceans of Earth, without the guidance of the rotation factor, will inundate whole land masses with terrible waves moving in high speed. Of course, it is not the waves moving per se, rather the Earth crust shifting rapidly to adjust to a new magnetic order. The Earth magnetic core have from the beginning been aligned with Nemesis, following its every move. This now creates a conflict with the magnetic properties of the Earth crust; Earth will moan and groan in agony!
The Pole shift has not been properly fulfilled yet, but will continue in a more peaceful manner, slowly adding 35 to 45 degrees to the roll. The rotation of Earth is activated again, in the opposite direction, depending on the perspective, that is. Because the Arctic is now located in the Southern hemisphere, and Antarctica has moved close to the Northern hemisphere. The physical magnetic poles have thus shifted places but who will know and who will care. Earth has undergone a complete reset and life will have to start from square one, with new definitions and standards. This is the cause and the secret to why humankind at intervals has been afflicted with relentless amnesia. But knowledge is power, and my estimation is the Pole shift will not occur until sometime around the year 2082.
