The compass point on the face of the depth is the location of a gravitational singularity. It's refered to as the foundation(s) of the earth. The circle that the compass metaphorically draws is the location of the firmament (heaven).
Gravity was created on the second day. Matter space and time existed before gravity was created. This has profound significance for theoretical Physics but we're going to ignore that for now.
The properties of Jasper and Jacinth give us two confirmations of Hypothesis 31 that gravity was created on the second day and caused the firmament to form as a series of crystal forms with a range of properties.
Yesterday we looked at definitions of axioms, corollaries and principles. We've diagnosed the five inherent flaws in the theoretical foundation of popular science (SciPop), its supposed axioms.
They key to understanding the inception of gravity as the creative act of the second day is the synchronicity between stretching out the heavens and establishing the foundations of the Earth. One command did both.
The question is, in what way is gravity maintaining the universe and how? In the SciPop paradigm gravity is broadly defined by Newton's law of universal gravitation.
The way we find all of the meaning which is contained in the phrase the foundations of the earth is to systematically examine all of the different Hebrew word combinations which have been translated this way.
The basic building block of Hebrew poetry is the couplet (also called a distich or bicolon), which consists of two contiguous lines related to each other by form and by content.
The Newton/Einstein concept of gravity is a way to summarize a broad class of observations, but its an inductive rationalization of circumstantial evidence, it doesn't give us the cause of gravity.
The ordering of creation by the establishment of above (heaven) and below (earth) was through the action of gravity, and the gravitational singularity is the assembly of souls where we all began.
