Secondary Hypothesis:

There is nothing unique about the above pattern. All planets look like this when they’re in their prime. They all have a North America, a South America, an Africa, an Asia and an Atlantic and Pacific. It is a simple pattern that repeats itself, triggered by an impact large enough to break the planet's single rock-shield ( mercury ) and enter it's interior, thus beginning the first stage of expansion and initiating the convection currents of the interior, which drive crustal movement. This starts the planet's continent pattern and life-cycle.

All the planets after the Earth, undergoing the same process, once had these same continents. While undergoing this process they all move outward together, away from the sun, their orbits linked and changing with the ice ages ( the orbit change initiated by the first impact ).

A passage through the asteriod belt ( formerly more extensive but depleted by the passage of each successive Earth ) increases their mass by the forming of their gas 'shrouds', by accretion. This also increases their gravity, thereby retaining the gravitational equilibrium of the overall system.

This continuity can be seen in the cloud formations of Jupiter ( the exploded and swollen remains of the fifth Earth, magnified by its passage through the asteroid belt ), the magnetic field and topography of Mars ( the dried and contracted remains of the sixth Earth ), and the earthquake waves of this Earth ( the one now in its prime ), the Seventh Earth.

My work on this Secondary Hypothesis can be found in sections 1 - 8 of navigation bar 2, above.
