The Leader of Expeditions Dr. Evdokia D. Marchenko
"Let’s imagine the planet Earth, which rotates around its axis but with the presence of precession. It incircles the cone to its half and another cone to the second half that turns into a pyramid due to the presence of mountains in Antarctica. In the center of the Earth's core there is an intersection of the state of human motivation and the state human realization. The South Pole contains the results of all of the noospherical activities. Expedition to the South Pole occurs along the vector of time that is called "psychological".
The psychology of time of every "self" or of every individual is comprised of memory of the past and the absence of memory of the future. The memory is present but the person does not know how to track if. At the South Pole every creature is referentially and reciprocally interacted with by the field of the planet Earth, by the torsion field, and by that noospherical practice that a person receives at the time of brain formation and brain evolvent of self. From the North Pole the rhythm enters the man, while at the South Pole man has to rise. Therefore, the feeling – not even the feeling but rather the reality- that the entire Earth is above you, and you must either embrace the whole earth and lift the globe, or repudiate the rights to possess knowledge of the entire planet.
Many scientists seek to get to the South Pole; there is nothing that resembles Earth, except of representations of ice, snow, pyramidal parts of the mountains and soil, coming out to the surface. The South Pole, as “white whole” supposed to, does not let inside right away.
The state of dryness starts as soon as the feet touched the Antarctic land. Dry snow, dry ice, dry shampoo, lack of water in general, and remarkably clean air. Everything is pure, untouched, and centuries-old. The ice compresses for millions of years, and each piece of ice holds information. And it turns out that at the South Pole man is left one-on-one with their own “self”.
The doctor accompanying the flight to the South Pole is concerned merely with one thing: the psychological factor of defence. For one not to go insane, not to go into hallucinations surrounded by all the vast whiteness, enormous space and total lack of reference points, familiar to the brain. The brain falls back into timelessness. But it is a difficult timelessness. If the sense of timelessness at the North Pole is light, since the brain is in its active phase and it can reason and think, the wave processes are sharp. In contrary, at the South Pole the brain in enslaved, it must go through the entire Earth, and only then be freed. It holds its own axle insed, and collapses instantly. (E.D. Marchenko, “Candid Acquaintance. Part 4”)
Pioneers of the South Pole
On the December 14th of 1911 the South Pole was reached by the Norwegian expedition led by Roald Amundsen. In January 1912 by the British expedition led by Robert Scott. In 1956 he opened American research station Amundsen-Scott, named in honor of the discoverers of the most southern point of the planet. The station is located about 100 meters from the Geographic South Pole of the Earth.
Impressions of participants of the expedition
Big airplane brought us from Latin America to Antarctica.
There is no take-off and landing strip at the South Pole, so the plane lands on the big rink. Polar explorers were searching for an appropriate site, but could not find one. They then cleared the area themselves and use it as a runway now. However, small planes take off and land at any convenient spot.
After the transfer station, a small plane took us to the point at the South Pole. Distance from the South Pole to the station is one and a half time less, then to the ocean.
The very first station that is based at the South Pole is now a museum. There is not even one living being, but it is always kept in a good condition to show it to the tourists.
The only operating station at the South Pole is equipped with all the benefits of civilization. There are computers, internet, television, and even a winter garden, where vegetables are being grown. There is also a library and a gym inside.
Polar explorers can live on the pole for only 2 months of the year, December and January (we arrived just after the New Year, there was still an improvised self-made metallic Christmas tree). The rest of the year the station is actually “frozen". It is due to a very low temperature range; the lowest point of the planet is -50 or -70 degrees of Celsius. To compare, the stations can stay active for six months while on the side, and all year round on the shores.
It was -20 degrees during our expedition. While staying at the South Pole we experienced the warmest day of the century which was -19 degrees. Previously constant temperature did not rise above -24 degrees.
In fact, the South Pole ice is 2.5 kilometers thick and there is very low air pressure. There are two reasons for that: first, the height is about two kilometres and second, since it’s a geographic pole, the pressure there is much lower than at the equator.
The air in Antarctica is completely dry, the humidity is at zero percent. Physicians and those who accompanied us recommended to drink 3 liters of fluid per day.
At the point of the South Pole there is a mirror ball. It gets shifted about half a meter each year. From December to January they fix this point of finding the South Pole. This is necessary because of the motion of the continent.
Flags set by the representatives of countries notifying of their right to arrive at the station.
This car costs 400 000 thousand dollars. It is made and customized specifically for the conditions of Antarctica. The premise behind it is that it does not need to warm up. It has a special engine and springs to withstand the sharp turns, and rubber, which allows for riding on the ice. This car is more than 2 meters in height.
All travelers who go to Antarctica, take sunglasses with them, because the ozone hole above the pole can cause blindness.
Sunbathing is too dangerous, because you can be burnt twice faster than at the equator, however, not because of the ozone hole.
There is no formal bathroom at all. Something similar to the toilet was in a separate, specially-equipped tent. There is also no place to wash - in the morning some particularly courageous individuals rubbed themselves with snow in the morning. This is despite the fact that the polar snow does not resemble ours at all. That snow is completely dry. And surprisingly white!
Antarctica and South Pole are protected areas, and all human waste being exported to the mainland for processing.
Weather was changing continuously, there was a snowstorm at the end of our expedition. At the time, no airplanes can fly, and so we waited until it stopped storming. When the good weather resumes, the planes fly every three days, the biggest departure waiting period every recorded was 64 days. During storm we stayed in windproof tents with special supporting elements. And soon we went home.
