Atmospherically, a canopy would effectively produce a series of very particular climatic effects. There would, for instance, be a global stabilization of atmospheric conditions, promoting tropical to subtropical temperatures across the planet. Further, there would be very little wind. The high humidity of those conditions would manifest itself in the mornings and evenings as dense fogs and mists. As strange as that first sounds, it gets a bit stranger yet as there would be no atmospheric precedent for rain on the land! The only precipitation would be found above bodies of water, directly above regions of high evaporation.
In the case of a sugilite crystalline canopy, we would see some very specific effects there too.¹ Primarily, sugilite is a ferromagnetic crystal, and as such, it is suspected that this crystal would have no trouble remaining suspended in the higher electromagnetic field of the early antediluvian world. In fact, the atmospheric conditions of those days likely would have aided its propagation there. So much so, in fact, that the planet may have been covered in a 2 cm thick shell of it! Those it would have sat within the sky above us, it would have been transparent from the surface, except for the fact that – while we have a blue sky today – a sugilite canopy would make the sky appear magenta or pink in color. With the magenta-hued sky of those days, we find another interesting feature of the crystalline canopy: A sugilite canopy would dramatically affect plant growth, as magenta-tinted light has been proven to enhance plant development and productivity.
Perhaps one of the most intriguing characteristics of this form of canopy come with its resonating properties. Before we really consider the implications of this, allow me to point you to a passage from Job, Chapter 38. This passage is part of a lengthy experience for Job in which God Himself is positing questions toward that fellow in an effort to make him realize that reality is much grander than any of us really have the capacity to understand. In any event, in verses five through seven, God asks:
“Who hath laid the measures thereof, if thou knowest? or who hath stretched the line upon it? Whereupon are the foundations thereof fastened? or who laid the corner stone thereof; When the morning stars sang together, and all the sons of God shouted for joy?”
There is a wealth of information packed into that little passage, but what I would like to call your immediate attention to is how it mentions the morning stars singing? That could be simply an idiomatic way of referring to angels, for angel are mentioned often with the phrase “Sons of God.” Even so, there is a fact of science that heavenly bodies – stars and planets – produce ultrasonic and infrasonic frequencies. Planets and the like thus make sounds, though we cannot hear them; their frequencies being outside of our range. It has been postulated however that with a sugilite canopy in the atmosphere, something truly remarkable would take place. In the evenings and in the mornings, as the stars rim the horizon, their imperceptible sounds would resonate in the sugilite, producing audible sounds at dusk and dawn! You would have heard the stars “singing!”¹
Whether the passage in Job refers to this phenomenon or true angelic singing, we cannot say for certain, but given the multiplicity of levels at which the Scriptures are often applicable, it may of course be that bother are correct.
