What are Firmament Growing Conditions?

“You can see the difference within a few days in color and growth in the greenhouses but even more, out in the field after transplant. We need more younger growers to learn how to use methods for sustainable cultivation in new emerging organic programs.”

What is the Firmament?

One meaning of the word “Firmament” is an old English word, translated as “expanse”. In the historical account of an intelligent design the earth was formed with a firmament which separated two layers of water below and above the firmament. There are multiple worldwide documented historical references describing a separated ocean/sky below from the waters occupied above the firmament.

Why is the Firmament important?

So what made this firmament layer important? The firmament likely resulted in a greenhouse effect with moderate non-fluctuating temperature and barometric pressure in the sky. In short, one of the results was a watering nitrogen and elements cycle where the levels of moisture were so high in the soil that a mist went up from the earth and watered the whole ecosystem of plant material. Concurrently, with a mist the 90+ essential element droplets were transported from the ocean onto earth irrigating the plant life from the leaves down. It’s intriguing that studies have shown plant uptake of nutrients via a direct foliar application to be exceedingly effective whether transported from the air onto the leaf or misting up from the ground warming into and on the leaf surface. We can surmise from today’s empirical investigation that the earth was a lush environment and present day hydrologic, nitrogen and element cycles are a fraction of what they were in ancient times.

Little is known about the firmamentbut much has been hotly debated. To describe something that happened thousands of years ago will require speculation. Conversely, to contest the firmament layer would also require a greater disregard of empirical evidence. For our purposes, we start by assuming it existed as stated in the historical record and then we develop the pre-diluvian (before a global flood) paradigm based on geologic findings.

What happened to the Firmament?

So what happened to the waters above and below the firmament? Applying what we know from scientific research, plants and animals in a fossil layer can only exist if they were trapped under the soil in a quick fashion that seals out oxygen so they cannot biodegrade. Trapped organic material either petrifies from mineral water leaching or is pressed into a dark mucky organic substance from all the weight of water/soil deposited on them. What could do this in every region of the world on a global scale, as the evidence shows? Secondly, animals found trapped and preserved for thousands of years in ice in the polar regions have green leafy plants in their stomachs. This suggests a quick, flash freezing process as opposed to a slow march towards an ice age where animals would either starve or migrate towards the equator. Research and written record in many civilizations indicate a global flood occurred: A plausible solution based on empirical investigation is that the fountains of the deep burst from the earth below and waters came crashing down through the firmament from above. We suggest the waters above the firmament came crashing down in a torrent of rain. The sudden loss of the greenhouse effect quickly froze the polar regions of earth and the churning megatons of sediment in the global flood buried many plants and animals. The meteorological conditions during that transition must have been astronomical, to state it mildly.

How does this apply to current times?

What does this mean to us today? The meteorological conditions today cause a different hydrologic cycle consisting of water evaporating into clouds and raining down in a comparatively large volume (during the rainy season), that soaks into the ground watering plants at their roots. By contrast, the ancient hydrologic cycle existed in a consistent climate that was less dependent on rainy seasons and more on a balanced water saturation. What most of the earth is missing today is the consistent daily misting up from the earth and the resultant colloidal mixture of ocean water droplets floating in the air, carrying the essential elements with them to coalesce on the plant leaves and stems. In contrast but in unison the mist of the morning would rise and fall with the sun warmth and water the earth. This can be seen today on a real small scale by watching the mist of the morning and it also exists on a larger scale in localized rainforest regions around the earth. For example, the Sequoia redwood trees in California grow taller than the heights that water can translocate up their trunks because of our atmospheric pressure. However, the fog layers in those localities naturally provide a foliar feeding of the redwoods watering the trees’ canopies. Additionally, in some regions conditions are just right that the trees actually drip condensed mist and it sounds like its raining outside but its just the trees dripping in the mist.
