Previous planet stages are shown in Time vs Activity RAB Diagram 1, that incorporates the major Dynamic Geological Time Scale elements. RAB Diagram 1 shows the evolutionary cycle for planets of Super Critical Mass (see P,S,&L Section 6. Critical Mass). Because planets cool at different rates, we can compare previous stages of dynamic development on Earth (see Dynamic Geological Time Scale) with conditions existing at the larger planets today.
