In his book, “The Emperor’s new Mind”, Sir Roger Penrose explains his disbelief in the usual foundations of consciousness, arguing how it cannot be explicable in computational terms.

The history of electromagnetic theory begins with ancient measures to understand atmospheric electricity, in particular lightning. People then had little understanding of electricity, and were unable to explain the phenomena. Scientific understanding into the nature of electricity grew throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries through the work of researchers such as Coulomb, Ampère. Daily and Annual Variation: The ultraviolet rays from the sun ionize the earth’s atmosphere. As a result of which the current is generated which further produces the magnetic field. This is the result of daily and annual variations. Lunar Variations: Apart from the sun, the moon also influences the magnetic activity of earth. Due to the tidal.

The magnetic declination is indicated on the map, with the obligatory indication of the measurement year and the average annual change. To switch to the real course, we first obtain the magnetic course and then add the magnetic declination to the east or subtracted the one to the west.

Gellibrand’s most widely appreciated scientific discovery, which he should share with John Marr, was that of the secular change in the magnetic variation. It was announced, without much comment, in A Discourse Mathematical on the Variation of the Magneticall Needle, Together With Its Admirable Diminution Lately Discovered.

In he published A Discourse Mathematical on the Variation of the Magneticall Needle stating that the declination had changed by more than 7° in 54 years. The reality of geomagnetic secular variation was rapidly accepted in England, where Gellibrand had a high reputation, but in other countries it was met with skepticism until it was.

Byit had swept through 32 degrees to 21°09' West. Fluid motions in the Earth’s core produce changes in the geomagnetic field (secular variation) and are also an important ingredient in the planet’s rotational dynamics.

In this article we review current understanding of core dynamics focusing on short timescales of years to centuries. We describe both theoretical models and what may be inferred from geomagnetic and geodetic observations. Mathematical Discourse practices also vary depending on purposes.

The direction in which the compass needle points is known as Magnetic North, and the angle between Magnetic North and the True North direction is called magnetic declination or variation.
