Could it be that the movement of techtonic plates is not a geologically ancient event, but the aftermath of a tremendous explosion a few thousand years ago. (Since mass extinctions did not occur in this time frame this could not be a meteor impact, but an energy driven explosion, say a billion megatons or so.) Now could analytical engines simulate the movements of the plates, and extrapolate backwards in time and geography to the explosion mid-atlantic? Would Captain Nemo be interested in exploring this spot? What will he find? Are Steam Lords tapping into the same energy that caused this explosion? Inquiring minds need to know.
