For seven days and seven nights
Man will watch this awesome sight.
The tides will rise beyond their ken
To bite away the shores and then
A fiery dragon will cross the sky
Six times before this earth shall die
Mankind will tremble and frightened be
for the sixth heralds in this prophecy.
The great star will burn for seven days,
The cloud will cause two suns to appear:
The big mastiff will howl all night
When the great pontiff will change country.
- Nostradamus, verse C2 Q41
My last post, Spirals, Stargates, and Suspicious Sneaky-A** Strangeness, is dated exactly one year ago today, I just happened to notice. And it still pretty much says what I’ve been thinking the past 12 months. 2010 saw plenty of calamity, from earthquakes and storms, to oil spills and economic and political malfunction. 2011 has already given us a continuous stream of unusual news that may or may not portend some great changes are in store for our near future. But the task of connecting the dots, of putting together the puzzle of headlines into a complete understanding of what is really happening, is challenging. Can you see the fnord in the empty spaces between all these memes? Everything is connected in some way, of course, but are these various unusual news items part of a larger scenario, the whole truth of which we are not completely aware?
The 2012 Mayan calendar end date has had many talking not just about Apocalyptic scenarios, but a shift in consciousness, and I do believe this is already beginning to happen – at least for those paying attention. Despite my unwillingness to jump on the bandwagon of setting dates for an Apocalypse, I don’t completely disregard them either. Sometimes the force of so many psyches focused so intensely can make things happen. So I just want to reiterate that my work has always been about increasing awareness, so that when and if big changes do happen, people won’t be caught off guard. If we were prepared spiritually, psychologically, emotionally and even physically for whatever comes, there should be absolutely no need for fear or panic. And we should all be doing what we can anyway to make our world a better place, and our lives more harmonious. Going local, working together and treating each other with kindness and compassion is a great place to start, no matter where you are or how much money you have, apocalypse or no apocalypse.
Unfortunately it is clear that there will still be some very hard times for many people around the world. These days all you have to do is read the news or even look outside your door to see bizarre headlines, strange weather, unprecedented disasters or hear neighbors screaming political self-righteousness at each other. The world is koyaanisqatsi, in more ways than one, and it could get worse before it gets better. Be ready for change, pay attention, and tune in your personal discernment to determine what it could all mean, both to you and in the larger scheme. Here are some of the things I’m paying attention to.
Nearly two years ago I wrote the post 2012: A Perfect Storm? In it, I outlined some of the concerns about the 2012 solar maximum, about which we are still being warned. As far back as 2006, NASA issued an official warning that 2012 would also be “the most intense solar maximum in fifty years”. In 2010, we were again given “dire warnings” both from the U.S. and the U.K. that solar flares (or nuclear or electromagnetic attacks) could disrupt power and communications for months or even years. It’s been unusually quiet the past few years. Does that mean we’re in the set-up for a really gigantic storm, timed just right about when the Mayans might have said it would? The fact that scientists are out there warning us about this is good reason to read up on our sun, and pay attention to the news about it. To check on the sun’s daily activity, you can go to SpaceWeather.com or this site, used by ham radio operators.
A related topic also in the news is the earth’s magnetic field, which is created by currents in the earth’s core. The poles – not the geographic north and south pole, but the magnetic poles – are moving more quickly than they have been since we started recording their locations in 1590. National Geographic has been covering the story for the past few years: in 2004, Earth’s Magnetic Field is Fading (the disaster movie The Core picked up on this, check it out). In 2008, their article Earth’s Core, Magnetic Field Changing Fast is notable because one of the geophysicists was quoted as saying, “What is so surprising is that rapid, almost sudden, changes take place in the Earth’s magnetic field.” And then in 2009, North Magnetic Pole Moving Due to Core Flux. So when you see mainstream headlines early this year talking about the speeding up of this magnetic shift, so much so that at least one airport has had to redraw its runways and controversial Zodiac sign changes and the (re?) addition of Ophiuchus had many people regretting their tattoos, it’s time to perk up. Some suggest we are indeed in the midst of a magnetic polar reversal, which may or may not be part of a process that culminates in a final, sudden and potentially calamitous global event. Mainstream science insists these changes takes hundreds or thousands of years to complete, but we also know there have been at least a few sudden, worldwide extinctions. This site will start to explain some of the alternative sources which may lead us to consider the possibility of a more abrupt and drastic event. You might also be interested to read up on controversial cataclysmic [geographic] pole shift theories.
A telling indicator of magnetic changes is our earth’s magnetosphere, which is created when the earth’s magnetic field interacts with charged particles, such as the solar wind. It protects the earth from deadly solar radiation and without it, life on our planet would not be possible. Normally it is shaped like a teardrop, with the tail end blowing away from the sun. During times of polar reversals, it gets tangled and twisted. I found a site which posts real-time simulated images of the Earth’s magnetosphere. When you look at a video of recent images, it does look like it is twisting and tangling, which scientists say is a sign that a reversal could be underway. It reminds me of a few past articles, including Giant Breach in Earth’s Magnetic Field Discovered. Also, remember the Danish study from 2009 which concluded that the earth’s magnetic field impacts our climate.
Are the magnetic field changes related to the other unusual news, the sudden and unexplained deaths of thousands of birds, fish and other animals continuing to happen worldwide? Maybe. But seems to me they might then just get lost – not die from “massive trauma”. Other speculations have included some sort of man made electromagnetic cause for this “aflockalypse”. If you don’t know about HAARP yet, it might be time to go down that rabbit hole. It’s a giant ionospheric heater, which the government claims is a harmless academic project, but others suspect has scary military applications and potentially dangerous effects on our planet. There are rumored to be HAARP installations in many of the areas where these unexplained animal deaths are occurring worldwide, including Arkansas, which also happens to be on the New Madrid faultline. In 1811, almost exactly 200 years ago, there were several huge earthquakes there in the mid-section of the U.S., and scientists believe it could happen again any time. Mike over at Patrioticspace points out on this video that an upcoming FEMA training drill (NLE 2011) is being planned for that area this coming May to prepare for such an event. Over the years there has been suspicion about the “coincidences” surrounding the timing of FEMA’s (and other governments) “drills” and subsequent disasters – 9/11, Katrina, the Haiti earthquake and 7/7, for some examples. Seems like they just happen to be there when stuff happens, which is strange in itself. So some people – including Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez by the way – believe that our government, and perhaps others as well, is deliberately causing some of these events using technologies like HAARP. It’s also possible they are using such technologies to try to prevent something big they know is coming. (By the way, talk about unexplained – ever heard of the Dyatlov Pass incident? Wonder what Tesla might say about all this…)
Either way it’s probably not good to be fooling with Mother Nature, especially on a scale involving the earth’s ionosphere. Many have likely already seen the article published in 1998 by the Russian scientist Dr. Alexey N. Dmitriev called Planetophysical State Of The Earth And Life which talks about the Earth’s ongoing magnetic changes being irreversible. In it he mentions man-made effects, “Earth’s ability to adapt to these external actions and transferences is aggravated, made more difficult, by the technogeneous alterations we have made to the natural quality or state of our geological-geophysical environment. Our planet Earth is now in the process of a dramatic transformation by altering the electromagnetic skeleton through a shift of the geomagnetic field poles…”
It’s not clear which technogeneous effects he is referring to, but when you’re talking about magnetic fields, HAARP sure comes to mind. Even if they accidentally caused all those birds to die trying to prevent the huge earthquake there we all know is coming one of these days, would they tell the public? Probably not. By the way, in investigating the New Madrid earthquake potential I came across this FEMA procurement site post from January 20, 2011, “The purpose of this Request for Information is to identify sources of supply for meals in support of disaster relief efforts based on a catastrophic disaster event within the New Madrid Fault System for a survivor population of 7M to be utilized for the sustainment of life during a 10-day period of operations…All meals/kits must have 36 months of remaining shelf life upon delivery.“ Why would they requisition that much food if NLE 2011 is only a drill? Patrioticspace has a great update on all of this that is worth watching, and he suspects the geophysical instability in the region could have been made worse by last year’s Gulf oil spill/drill. In coordination with NLE 2011, the authorities are also planning “The Great Central U.S. Shake Out” to help citizens get prepare for earthquakes. So if you live in the New Madrid seismic zone (or any earthquake zone for that matter), you might want to get your earthquake kit ready, just in case.
Then there’s the weird debate lately that something seems wrong with the moon, that it has tilted. Not really sure about that one but it seems to fit with the general sense that things seem out of balance. Searing summers and frigid winters break records every year, gigantic earthquakes kill hundreds of thousands, and unbelievable floods and storms all over the world round it all out to the extent that many people are not even shocked or surprised by natural disasters anymore, even though 2010 was the worst year yet. Disaster has become the status quo – that is perhaps until ARkstorm, for which by the way they are also planning a disaster training drill.
Another strange item to consider is the report that the sun rose two days early in Greenland this year – on 1/11/11, instead of 1/13/11 as expected. A little more investigation revealed some controversy there. Mainstream science, as in this article, says this is impossible, because it would mean the earth-sun orbital parameters have changed and they insist, this has not happened. But in the linked article, Ice Ages Blamed on Tilting Earth, we learn that the tilt, or wobble, of our planet has changed throughout the ages. A little more investigation reveals that the earthquake/tsunami of 2004 actually changed the planet’s shape, and shaved a few microseconds off our day. The earthquake in Chile altered our earth’s rotation, and took a few more tiny moments from us. So, official data notwithstanding, it might not be that far off to imagine, something could change, has changed, or is even changing rapidly, with our earth, it’s magnetic field, rotation and/or tilt.
The world’s volcanoes are getting busier and busier as well. Last year Der Spiegel published an article warning of an impending mega-eruption of Indonesia’s Mount Merapi. Recently another disconcerting piece of news about the Yellowstone supervolcano bulging, as the magma chamber there continues to swell. When physicist Michio Kaku is out and about talking about pending catastrophes, as he has done before warning about monster solar storms, I pay attention; recently he discussed massive earthquakes and volcanic eruptions which could destroy any one of several major cities in the near future. Even more recently, here he is talking specifically about the recent bulge at Yellowstone. Interesting timing.
Does any of this have to do with “Planet X” (which I actually believe, if it exists, is not a planet but actually a star, perhaps even a companion to our sun)? You can find all kinds of information on the ancient myth and lore of this enigmatic “lost” star or planet and the destruction it brings as it swings through our solar system, though it is not accepted by mainstream science, at least as far as we know. But let’s face it – would you tell 6 billion people that the earth was about to be rocked upside down overnight a week from Thursday? Probably not. So, just because it’s debunked and ignored by the mainstream doesn’t mean that a large perturber blowing by every few millennia isn’t the reason for all the magnetic weirdness, earthquakes and volcanoes. Every now and then I come across articles that ring a bell for Planet X. Giant Stealth Planet May Explain Rain of Comets from Solar System’s Edge is not comforting news in light of the huge meteorites seen around the world lately. How about this one, “A new set of all-sky maps from NASA’s Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) shows that conditions at the edge of our Solar System are more dynamic than first thought.” Ya think?
Knowing this, I definitely perked up when I heard in the mainstream news that we could be seeing what look like two suns in our skies for a while, if the red giant Betelgeuse goes supernova. But even though shock-value headlines declare this as a possibility by 2012, perhaps feeding into the Mayan calendar end date hysteria, in reality it could happen anytime in the next thousand(s) years, which led some to suggest it could be a cover story for Planet X. Space.com (and others) pretty much debunked the idea that Betelgeuse would go supernova anytime soon, true or not. So it is interesting that some mainstream sources seemed happy enough to run with the story again even though it already kinda made news and was also debunked a few months ago as a result of a discussion on a forum. Maybe someone out there knows what’s really going on, and wants to give us an “acceptable” explanation for something that might cause worldwide panic otherwise, and this seemed like a pretty good one. Or, maybe we really do have something to worry about – here is a scary take on it at Rense from back in 2009.
Or, maybe they’re just creating buzz for Beetlejuice II.
Betelgeuse, one of the brightest stars we know of, is a red giant in Orion, which is notable in terms of Planet X theories because the lore warns about seeing a red object in the sky coming from the direction of Orion. Scientists seem to have a hard time measuring both its size and distance – it seems to bulge and vary in brightness, and researchers believe “it it is likely that Betelgeuse has not always had its current motion through space and has changed course at one time or another…” So, intriguing, but certainly not a sure thing in terms of Planet X. The famous Washington Post article from 1983 quoted by many including myself in Planet X discussions did say an object in question was found in the neighborhood of Orion, but it certainly wasn’t a red giant they found. That was a brown dwarf, a type of star which is so dim its distance is difficult to establish, and even to detect in the first place. (Did you know the mythology about Orion and Ophiuchus by the way?) One other note I found interesting on Wiki, “In August Derleth’s short story “The Dweller in the Darkness” set in H.P. Lovecrafts’s Cthulhu Mythos, Betelgeuse is the home of the ‘benign’ Elder Gods.” Well how about that. Nibiru anyone? Wonder what Zecharia Sitchin would say about that if he was still around.
The idea of seeing two suns is not a new one, even aside from Star Wars mystique. I found an old thread on ATS talking about this back in 2007. I got chills when I was reminded of Share International’s press release regarding the timing of Maitreya’s appearance, “In the very near future a large, bright star will appear in the sky visible to all throughout the world – night and day.” Beetlejuice indeed. Or how about this prophetic warning from the “Blessed Mother” in 2008 about two suns? Cheery. Here is a website with a bunch of people dreaming about two suns and talking about various prophecies. Here is one of likely many Biblical takes on it. How about another completely different interpretation from Goro Adachi from back in 2000? Nostradamus of course (see top), despite the difficulty in interpretation. The Kolbrin Bible people have a lot of interesting information out. Many have filmed what they believe looks like two suns in our skies and posted on YouTube. According to this site, the Freemasons are no strangers to the two suns theme in their writings and symbologies. Andy Lloyd wrote about the two suns of the Incas in terms of his Dark Star theory. Velikovsky of course with his Worlds in Collision. And I’m sure there are many more.
So, the sun is set to be dangerously active in the next year or two, and our magnetic field is shifting so quickly, many believe we are in the middle of a polar reversal. That means the normal protection we have from the sun could be unreliable. Those two things should be considered in tandem, for it does not bode well, whether you suspect Planet X or not. But if we actually do start seeing two suns, it might be time to start connecting the dots. One other thought; if a big quake rocks the New Madrid fault, what effect might it have on Yellowstone, or vice versa?
I think the powers-that-be are perfectly aware of what could be coming. That’s why there are hundreds (or thousands) of underground corporate, government, and military bunkers all over the world, and why they are saving documents, seeds and establishing continuity of government procedures. And why we are being kept busy with the misery of political hotbeds and economic meltdown: pay no attention to the man behind the curtain. And why we’re being entertained with so many disaster movies: see, this is fiction, it couldn’t happen; or, see, you should be aware, this could happen, but we’re not going to tell you.
And it could. I found an interesting post at Montalk, who doesn’t post very often anymore either, that the mention of neutrinos in the Betelgeuse/two suns thing in the news recently might not be the good news scientists are hoping for; he suggests it could actually be a problem similar to that which was fictionalized in the movie 2012. Well, huh. Anything to do with this mystery particle? Food for thought.
With the dawn of 2011, the 2012 Mayan calendar end date looms tantalizingly – or frighteningly, depending on your perspective – within reach. Whether December 22, 2012 will be just another day, or whether we will be in the midst of global cataclysm remains to be seen (unless you’re Harold Camping, who used the Bible to predict the end of the world for October 21, 2011 – and Judgment Day for May 21, 2011, interesting if only for its confluence with the New Madrid FEMA drill).
I am not alone in my suspicions that there is a lot going on behind the scenes, veiled in secrecy as it perhaps always has been. Suspicious global cabals have been the subject of many of my own articles as well as thousands of others across the Internet and in book stores. A surprising recent article in The Economist attempted to casually “out” these organizations and call them harmless, though their too-little-too-late explanation was far less entertaining than the comments posted. I will certainly be paying attention to the ongoing revolution in the Middle East, the timing of which is also of note. Is it truly a grass-roots movement for freedom? As Americans, we naturally welcome democratization and support the people’s choice, and mourn those killed or injured in the fight for liberty. But if we are aware of the powers-that-be and their agendas, we might also not be surprised to hear this report from RT, which suggests otherwise, citing Wikileaks. Is this another move towards “totalitarian democracy” as suggested by William Engdahl? Could democracy in these Arab countries, whose public opinion is heavily anti-Israel and anti-U.S., actually lead to increased tensions? Whether the global elite stand to benefit from this at all, or whether it could blow up in everyone’s faces, remains to be seen.
We know there are things that we know, things that we don’t know, and things that we don’t know we don’t know. So, perhaps there are some who know those things that we don’t know that we don’t know, George Lucas notwithstanding. And what would they do with this knowledge? A lot of debunking for one thing. Can’t have a society of panicked people all quitting their jobs and moving to a cabin in the woods with their hunting rifles and an assortment of seeds. Civilization – I should say, their high-tech, low-love version of civilization anyway – would fade away and then they’d lose their power. And clearly if we all knew what we didn’t know we didn’t know, the powers-that-be wouldn’t be so powerful anymore. No one would fight in their wars, and we’d never need to buy gasoline or pharmaceuticals, for example.
And as many prepare for and debate the topic of disclosure, we are also bombarded with TV shows and films about alien invasion of one sort or another. Other than Wikileaks, the latest UFO rumors are that the U.S. is set to announce their ongoing relationship with extraterrestrials in a kind of E.T.-space-race with the Chinese. Or maybe “They” are here to help us deal with the chaos of this coming shift…or take advantage of it, as the case may be. Trouble is, hard for most people to distinguish truth from non truth. And sometimes people just don’t want to know. They would rather be right. For those aware of Biblical End Times prophecies which supposedly necessitate the rebuilding of the Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem where the Dome of the Rock currently stands, you might be interested to know that recently several videos surfaced of a strange light hovering right over the Dome on January 28, 2011. This one was pretty wild. Is it real?
If there are things we don’t know that we don’t know, maybe it’s also true that there are things that we don’t know that we do know. I believe many people are subconsciously attuned to some kind of internal messaging system. If they are listening, many of them are going back to basics, learning skills not used for generations, thinking locally and sustainably. Perhaps they are also preparing for something – perhaps they might not really know why, or for when, or if they do maybe they might not really believe anything big like that could possibly happen to them – but they do it anyway. Maybe they also are beginning to realize that our civilization can only really survive if people learn to live in harmony with each other and the planet, and that that will have to happen regardless of whether or not there is an Apocalypse. There seems to be a low, rumbling wave of change, growth and understanding rising from the ashes that have not even fallen yet.
Sometimes, unknown knowledge sits at the very root of our existence on planet Earth. Perhaps the Earth gives a little wobble now and then to remind us what we’re supposed to know.
To change the world as a Surfer of the Tao is to ride light energy and heavy energy simultaneously; as one lifts up, the other presses down, and that resistance gives us the impetus to project ourselves forward, like squeezing a watermelon pit between your fingers and shooting it.
We can use technology to learn and survive, even as it is destroying us. We can use what we don’t know to fill in the empty spaces. We can use destruction as an opportunity to create anew.
Life is not in iPods, 3D movies, video games, cell phone apps, or on television. It’s not in the way we argue, accuse, and hate. Life is not anger, cruelty and division. Life is not harshness of tone, unwillingness to forgive, intolerance, or lack of understanding. Life is not rote knowledge, or trivia.
Life is in the trees, the flowers, rocks, sky and clouds. It’s in the depths of our souls, our atoms, our breath. It’s in the way we love, smile and laugh. Life is forgiveness, compassion and service, generosity of spirit and selfless creativity. Life is the Knowledge and Appreciation of Life.
Some are finding their way back to Life. Some never left in the first place. Many have a long, long ways to go. Some will never even see there is a Way of Life.
Some easily find knowledge in a blade of grass; others must first fight and struggle their entire lives only to discover in their dying breath how simple it all really is.
Be well my friends. Be in the Know, be safe, be prepared, be open and clear.
No matter what happens, the time is now.
And…it’s all good.
Whoever can see through all fear will always be safe.
