The models and thumbnails of Earth expansionists, whose theories I have chosen to animate?Hilgenberg, Vogel, Maxlow, and my own?can better be visualized, studied, and judged after they have been viewed comparatively, in video animation. Contextual animation does solve many global tectonic problems in stride?as the present video succeeds in illuminating the uniform formation of East Asia?s marginal seas and island chains. As a matter of principle, I have expanded equal and sometimes even greater efforts in producing correct animated sequences for the theories of my competitors than I have for my own.
The comparative nature of my video presentation is new in the field, and it is intended to stimulate a continued desire for clarification. At various stages of preparation I have been able to effect some improvements regarding certain details of my theory. Moreover, in addition to the usual isochrone maps and globes I have, in this edition, utilized numerous NASA satellite images. I consider this 33 minute video lecture, in DVD format, to be a fitting addendum to my last year?s DVD lecture at the Theuern Conference, Germany 2003. It was undertaken as a follow-up and as an improvement on its precedent.
