- ‘Of fundamental importance here is the extent to which magma, which after being heated by the centrosphere rises and thus causes dominant processes, such as drifting-apart of continents and orogenesis, triggers climatic and sea level fluctuations as well.’
- ‘To find out how and why Earth became a habitable planet, we are studying what happens inside it, at depths of more than 1,000 km, and also in the area between the core-mantle boundary and the centrosphere.’
- ‘The substances brought within the reach of observation in veinstones, in lavas, and hypogene rocks - by the action of water as a solvent and sublimant - warrant the belief that the centrosphere is largely made up of metals and metalloids with imprisoned gases.’
