* Since the surrounding mountains are gabbro, about the same as basalt, it seems that the lightning transmuted the gabbro into granite in a way like I described above.
Firstly, assuming that the earth was formed in a Z pinch, and is a concretion or geode, but is not possibly hollow seems a problem. Interestingly the moon rang for 3 weeks (I might have that time wrong) after the lander took off from the surface. Indicating that it might be hollow. Perhaps significantly hollow.
The earth seems much different, definitely thicker, but obviously, with a magnetic field is needs something to generate it. It requires power input, and perhaps a plasma vortex in the center.
This concretion seems to be similar to how I envision the earth:

You can see the expansion cracks and the way the inner material pushed away the outer 'crust', but it is still divided into multiple cells which expanded over time. This gives you the "Ring of Fire" and the hot spot problems, but subduction is not really as factor. Mountains would be akin to crust buckling and gaseous outpourings in the area due to its weakened state. Baha California is being pulled, much like Vancouver Island, away from the coast as the expansion is occurring significantly in the area all along the coast from Alaska to Peru. You can tell by the age of the ocean floor in that area.(20 mya or less. Very young, Accurately how young is debatable (especially on this forum where we all agree that decay rates can vary significantly due to electrical environment))
It's also possible to consider that the attraction of megalightning to these areas would occur because of the positively charged magma would be closer to the surface. So mountain formation would be (in this theory) areas where the crust is weakened or thinner, not just higher up. This is far from conclusive, but something to ponder.
This does not exclude plasma discharge machining or of course island creation. Although the Aleutian Islands do follow along a sliding expansion ridge.
