I finally got to examine the upper reaches of a fork in my local Todd creek, and the evidence for the extreme electrical energies is obvious. At the higher elevations the main effects are of what I would call Coulomb ejection, large, Sherman tank sized blocks ejected from the valley walls, and a great amount of totally shattered, angular rock pieces that cover the valley floor to a depth of many metres in places. No rounded pebbles/cobbles/boulders up there.
At the conjunction of the leg that I went up and the main course of the creek, the creek bed is exposed, and it is a chewed up mess of swirling and undulating rock, with a couple of examples of the formation of rocks within pits or potholes on the bedrock surface.
The rocks in the potholes will not move, they are still connected to bedrock. Under and around the larger central rock are smaller ones whos composition is nothing like that of the bedrock, but could not have been washed into their present positions. They have been formed and 'morphed' right where they are found.
That these creek beds are the result of electrical forces is, to me, obvious. Not glaciation and not weathering, and a proper scientific examination would have to reach the same conclusion. Really, a scientific Inquisition is needed with most of the proffered geological formations and the processes involved in their creation, and it no doubt would show the complete impossibility of the accepted, mainstream models, but it would be a tough job to put such an inquisition together. The geologists will not even consider an alternative method, but I have yet to find an engineer of any flavour who has the least interest in geology. I'm sure there must be some with appropriate experience who could determine the real science behind these features, will keep looking and asking.
So what is the real cause of all these features? It is an electrical discharge for sure, and these rivers, creeks and streams are all discharge tracks, due to large vertical electric field gradients. Surface flows and currents would increase by way of the positive feedback nature of the event, and once in arc discharge mode there is in effect an antenna created by the plasma in the stream, a wide-band, very rich in harmonics antenna, and it is the nature of the near, intermediate and far-field effects that is producing the variety of features noted.
Roughly speaking, in the near-field, everything is turned to dust, fully ionised, becoming the silts or clays found in the lower reaches of the creeks and rivers, as well as perhaps the fine iron oxide dust that covers the hillsides for quite large areas around the creeks. The intermediate field can have many and varied effects, mixing electric and magnetic fields in complex ways, accounting for the melting, twisting, sculpting, etc, and I believe, the formation and morphing that creates the pebbles and cobbles. The far field can be 'spiky' in an over-driven antenna, and these are over-driven for sure, and it is this effect that leads to the Coulomb ejection and shattering of the bedrock at the sides and above the creek/river bed. Where the creek bed is exposed, it is all chewed and gnarly, where it isn't exposed, clearing out the creek would show the same features.
Once my legs and knees have recovered (think I over did it a bit!), I'll be trying for the higher reaching portions of the main creek channel, and will likely find the same format, with the ejection and shattering becoming more pronounced with increasing elevation.
I met a couple of people up there who were geocaching, and had a look at their GPS units, neat stuff, but not cheap. However, the geocaching seems like it might be a good way to promote and perhaps get some people to take an interest in an alternative to the standard model. Asking others to image and mark any odd geological features they come across, so that others might be able to identify the particular forces involved, would help speed up the observed instances of such features, and surely if enough are identified that would seem to defy accepted mechanical processes, then academia may be forced to speak on the subject? Or is my naivety showing again?
Here is an image of a location I haven't come across yet, must be further up-river than I have explored so far, will try and contact the photographer to find out if he remembers the location.
