The Forty-Fours are a group of islands in the Chatham Archipelago, about 50 kilometres (31 mi) east of the main Chatham Island. They are called Motchuhar in Moriori and Motuhara in Māori.[1] The group includes the easternmost point of New Zealand, whose South Island is located about 800 kilometres (500 mi) to the west.
It is one of only two breeding sites for the Chatham fulmar prion.[1] It has been identified as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International because it supports breeding colonies of Buller’s and northern royal albatrosses.[2]

Rangiora
Rangiora is the largest town in North Canterbury. It lies 25 kilometres north of Christchurch. There were several variations of the town’s name as early European visitors to the area understood the Maori to be saying different things. Alfred Wills recorded his impression in 1848 as Rangiora, Charles Torlesse wrote the name Rakihora in 1849 while Edward Ward, a year later, recorded it as Rangiola. Later interpreters had a field day with its meaning including ‘glowing sky’, ‘place of rest’, ‘fine weather after bad’, ‘the sun shining on the bush’, ‘the gateway to heaven’ and ‘glowing sky at sunset’.
The beauty of the area and potential for grazing inspired a Canterbury surveyor, Charles Obin Torlesse, to build the first European dwelling in the town in 1851.
Growth was stimulated by the arrival of the railway in 1872.
Today, Rangiora is home to around 14,000 people and combines city services with the quiet lifestyle of a semi-rural town, retaining a strong sense of community.

Pitt Island is the second largest island in the Chatham Archipelago, a territory of New Zealand. It is called Rangiauria in Māori and Rangiaotea in Moriori.[1]
Pitt Island has 65 square kilometres (25 sq mi). It lies about 770 kilometres (480 mi) [2]to the east of New Zealand’s main islands, and about 20 kilometres (12 mi) to the southeast of Chatham Island, from which it is separated by Pitt Strait. The island is very hilly; its highest point (Waihere Head) rises to 231 metres (758 ft) above sea level.[3] As of 2011, Pitt Island had a population of about 38 people.
Pitt Island’s Kahuitara Point is the first populated location on earth to observe a sunrise in each new year, based on local time zone.[4]

Rev 17:8
The beast that thou sawest was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is.

Rev 20:1
And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.

Rev 20:3

Mat 7:17
Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

Rangiora Tree
Large, soft, matt-green leaves with glistening white woolly undersurfaces make rangiora (Brachyglottis repanda) easy to recognise. It grows as a shrub or tree up to seven metres high. It is found in open forest and shrubland throughout the North Island and from north-west Nelson to just south of Greymouth in the west, and near Kēkerengū in the east. This plant has naturalised on Banks Peninsula, Otago Peninsula and around Oban on Stewart Island. Its masses of tiny, creamy yellow flowers appear in late winter and early spring.

Getting to the root of the matter, the RGB perspective is fascinating.

https://root.cern.ch/drupal/

ROOT TColor – RGB components
Introduction
Colors are defined by their red, green and blue components, simply called the RGB components. The colors are also known by the hue, light and saturation components also known as the HLS components. When a new color is created the components of both color systems are computed.
https://root.cern.ch/root/html/TColor.html

RGB matters why? Tom Horn pointed out, regarding the demoniac:
Mat 17:21 Howbeit this kind [genos] goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

kind g1085 γένος genos
kindred

Take note of the Meyrin antipode coordinates:
Coordinates: -46.23, -173.92

46.23:
46 / 2 = 23

173.92:
(173.92 / 2) / 2 = 43.48
(174 / 2) / 2 = 43.5
Maybe the coordinates should be: -46.00, -176.00
44 * 2 * 2 = 176

How many chromosomes do people have?
In humans, each cell normally contains 23 pairs of chromosomes, for a total of 46.
Twenty-two of these pairs, called autosomes, look the same in both males and females.
The 23rd pair, the sex chromosomes, differ between males and females.
Females have two copies of the X chromosome, while males have one X and one Y chromosome.
The 22 autosomes are numbered by size. The other two chromosomes, X and Y, are the sex chromosomes.
This picture of the human chromosomes lined up in pairs is called a karyotype.

Although, the case is clear for literal giants, of great stature and supernatural strength and no other commentary synthesizes the totality of Scripture more accurately than the fallen angel corruption of the human genome, it is interesting to note “earth-born” could be extended to the emergent technology tsunami that is set to crest and crush humanity to obsolescence.

 

46 + 176 = 222

Revelation 20:1-15 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years.
And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison
And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.
And they went up on the breadth of the earth, and compassed the camp of the saints about, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them.
And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.
And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.
And the sea gave up the dead which were in it; and death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them: and they were judged every man according to their works.
And death and hell were cast into the lake of fire. This is the second death.
And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.

 

Revelation 21:27 And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.
And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.
And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.
He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.
And there came unto me one of the seven angels which had the seven vials full of the seven last plagues, and talked with me, saying, Come hither, I will shew thee the bride, the Lamb’s wife.
And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God,
Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal;
And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:
On the east three gates; on the north three gates; on the south three gates; and on the west three gates.
And the wall of the city had twelve foundations, and in them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
And he that talked with me had a golden reed to measure the city, and the gates thereof, and the wall thereof.
And the city lieth foursquare, and the length is as large as the breadth: and he measured the city with the reed, twelve thousand furlongs. The length and the breadth and the height of it are equal.
And he measured the wall thereof, an hundred and forty and four cubits, according to the measure of a man, that is, of the angel.
And the building of the wall of it was of jasper: and the city was pure gold, like unto clear glass.
And the foundations of the wall of the city were garnished with all manner of precious stones. The first foundation was jasper; the second, sapphire; the third, a chalcedony; the fourth, an emerald;
The fifth, sardonyx; the sixth, sardius; the seventh, chrysolite; the eighth, beryl; the ninth, a topaz; the tenth, a chrysoprasus; the eleventh, a jacinth; the twelfth, an amethyst.
And the twelve gates were twelve pearls; every several gate was of one pearl: and the street of the city was pure gold, as it were transparent glass.
And I saw no temple therein: for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are the temple of it.
And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof.
And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it.
And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there.
And they shall bring the glory and honour of the nations into it.
And there shall in no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb’s book of life.

 

Revelation 22:1-21 And he shewed me a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal, proceeding out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
And there shall be no more curse: but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it; and his servants shall serve him:
And they shall see his face; and his name shall be in their foreheads.
And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun; for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever.
And he said unto me, These sayings are faithful and true: and the Lord God of the holy prophets sent his angel to shew unto his servants the things which must shortly be done.
Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.
And I John saw these things, and heard them. And when I had heard and seen, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel which shewed me these things.
Then saith he unto me, See thou do it not: for I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren the prophets, and of them which keep the sayings of this book: worship God.
And he saith unto me, Seal not the sayings of the prophecy of this book: for the time is at hand.
He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.
And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be.
I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.
For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.
And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.
For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

 

Come and see.

    The lost, underwater continent of Zealandia may have been used by animals and plants to cross continents 80 million years ago, research has found.

    Zealandia, a mostly-submerged landmass in the South Pacific, was declared Earth’s newest continent earlier this year.

    Covering five million square kilometres (1.9 million square miles), it includes Lord Howe Island off Australia’s east coast, New Caledonia and New Zealand.

    Now experts who have been drilling the area say it may have been closer to land level than first thought, providing a bridge for wildlife between ancient Australia and Antarctica.

    Zealandia, which is mostly submerged beneath the South Pacific, was once part of the Gondwana super-continent but broke away some 75 million years ago.

    In a paper published in the Geological Society of America’s Journal GSA Today in February, researchers made the case that it should be considered a new continent.

    They said it was a distinct geological entity that met all the criteria applied to Earth’s other continents.

    These criteria include elevation above the surrounding area, distinctive geology, a well-defined area and a crust much thicker than that found on the ocean floor.

    An international team of scientists found fossilised remains and evidence of large-scale tectonic plate shifts as part of one of the first extensive surveys of the region.

    ‘The discovery of microscopic shells of organisms that lived in warm shallow seas, and spores and pollen from land plants, reveal that the geography and climate of Zealandia was dramatically different in the past,’ said expedition co-chief scientist Professor Gerald Dickens of Rice University in Houston, Texas.

    Expedition scientists drilled deep into the seabed at six sites in water depths of more than 1,250 meters (4,101 feet).

    They took 2,500 meters (8,202 feet) of sediment cores from layers that show how the geography and climate of Zealandia have changed over the last 70 million years.

    ‘More than 8,000 specimens were studied, and several hundred fossil species were identified,’ said Professor Dickens.

    These criteria include elevation above the surrounding area, distinctive geology, a well-defined area and a crust much thicker than that found on the ocean floor.

    The newly extracted sediment cores show how the continent experienced tectonic and ecological change across millions of years.

    ‘Zealandia, a sunken continent long lost beneath the oceans, is giving up its 60 million-year-old secrets through scientific ocean drilling,’ said project co-director Jamie Allan.

    ‘This expedition offered insights into Earth’s history, ranging from mountain-building in New Zealand to the shifting movements of Earth’s tectonic plates to changes in ocean circulation and global climate.’

    The new discoveries reveal new details about the formation of the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’ – an active seafloor zone along the perimeter of the Pacific Ocean.

    The ring’s birth 40 to 50 million years ago caused dramatic changes in ocean depth and volcanic activity and buckled the seabed of Zealandia.

    Researchers had previously believed that Zealandia was submerged when it separated from Australia and Antarctica about 80 million years ago.

    Zealandia is mostly submerged beneath the South Pacific bar a few regions, including Australia’s Howe Island (pictured).

    Expedition co-chief scientist Professor Rupert Sutherland, of Victoria University in Wellington, New Zealand, said: ‘That is still probably accurate, but it is now clear that dramatic later events shaped the continent we explored on this voyage.

    ‘Big geographic changes across northern Zealandia, which is about the same size as India, have implications for understanding questions such as how plants and animals dispersed and evolved in the South Pacific.

    ‘The discovery of past land and shallow seas now provides an explanation. There were pathways for animals and plants to move along.’

    Future studies of the new sediment cores will focus on understanding how Earth’s tectonic plates move and how the global climate system works.

    Records of Zealandia’s history, expedition scientists said, will provide a sensitive test for computer models used to predict future changes in climate.
