I accidentally stumbeled upon your name on the internet the other day when I found this link: http://geology.about.com/b/2010/08/13/t ... lusion.htm
Big was my surprise when I found that one of the links you referred to was one of my own:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xD9xTjYUgg
You say it ”is an attempt to explain away the problem, so the problem has been known, to some, for a while.”
I admit the video is pretty crappy made and is maybe unclear in it´s intentions, but I originally made the video to try to show some of my friends the absurdities of the ruling theory of Plate Tectonics and that the natural conclusion is that it in fact is completely impossible!
I have been puzzled by the pattern shown in the isochrones on the ocean floor and particularely the triangular pattern in the Pacific. I thought it looked impossible to get the pattern shown using PT theory. But I took upon me the task to try to find if there was any theoretically possible solution to the problem within a PT framework. I twisted my mind trying to do what PT theorists should have done long, long ago. So yes, it must be known to some, but to my humble knowledge, noone have treated the issue with the attention it deserves. I ended up with what you see, realizing it is forcing square pegs into round holes. What I am really saying is : Only if PT can account for the disappearing of seafloor equivalent to nearly twice the surfacearea of present day earth(!) can it possibly be true. I.e. if pigs can fly, then I am king Solomon! I am certainly not king Solomon.
Enough said abot that, I find it interesting to se your hypothesis even if I have not had the time to read enough to fully understand it all yet. I have considered the possibility myself, but rejected the idea for a number of reasons that I would like to raise in due course. While I digest your hypothesis, you may like to watch my other videos on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rV2ik1Mj2AE
It is not finished yet and another version will be uploaded as soon as I have had the time to complete it. I also have some work here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/40873010@N02/

if you are interested.
Are you at all familiar with the Expanding Earth group on yahoo? http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/expanding_earth/
They are planning a workshop/conference on Earth expansion/Growing Earth in Rome, Italy in October. Seems to me your hypothesis should be present there!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
