Lion Rock’s Eye Glows Red in Hong Kong
Epoc Times, 8th January 2014
HONG KONG—The enormous eye of Lion Rock in Hong Kong mysteriously turned red a few days before the new year, eyewitnesses reported.

A symbol of Hong Kong’s spirit, the famous Lion Rock is a lion-shaped hill that overlooks Hong Kong’s Kowloon area. At 2pm on Dec. 22, the lion’s eye turned red twice, lasting 30 minutes before fading out.

Some citizens were alarmed by this phenomenon, taking it as a sign that Hong Kong is in trouble. They appealed to the Hong Kong people to take measures to safeguard Hong Kong.

Comment:
Wow.... It seems the 'Legend of the Red-Eyed Lion' is another "End Times" tale... This reminds me of the Osiris statue that is mysteriously turning around on its own, see Mystery as museum statue starts turning in display case. Is this another little sign of dramatic cosmic changes affecting those on Earth, a warning preserved by thos who understand the importance of paying attention to the signs of the times...



The river of blood: Villagers' shock as Slovakian waterway turns red overnight
Daily Mail, 3rd December 2013
•River flowing through Slovakian village turns blood red
•Superstitious locals say the colour of the river is a sign of 'evil'
•Possibly caused by faulty filter at nearby slaughterhouse

Rumours were rife in a Slovakian town this week when a river running through turned bright red.The river in Myjava, a small municipality on the border to the Czech Republic, had changed colour over night and turned into 'blood'. Police have been called in to investigate the matter, but it is believed to be a faulty filtering system from a slaughterhouse upstream.

Roman Podbrezova, 65, had gone for a morning walk when he saw the drastic change to the river which runs through the centre of the town.'I just could not believe my eyes,' he said. 'The river was dark red. It was like something from a horror film. Blood cascading through the centre of town.'Another local said: 'This is really creepy. Yesterday evening I walked past here and it was its normal colour.

Comment:
Another river turns to the colour of blood... Frankly, I don't believe the slaughterhouse explanation, but the truth should be easy to establish... So... What percentage of people have any inkling of just how apocalyptic the 'signs of the times' are? Are we waiting for a third of all the rivers and seas on the planet turning red? According to ancient knowledge preserved in the Bible, that is what we should expect as we are quite evidently in the 'End Times', a reference point for an expected shift in cosmological conditions.



Why Are So Many Wealthy People Building Futuristic High Tech Security Bunkers?
End of the American Dream, 2nd December 2013
The wealthy are spending more to protect themselves from all the rest of us than ever before. So why are they so concerned about the future? Do they know something that the rest of us don’t? Or do they just have the money to buy the type of security that the rest of us would if we could? Over the past few years, wealthy people all over America have been equipping their homes with futuristic high tech security systems that go far beyond the kinds of things portrayed in recent Hollywood films such as “The Purge“.

We are talking about security bunkers with their own sustainable sources of food and water, hidden passageways that lead to ballistics-proof panic suites, and thermal heat detectors that can detect someone hiding up to 15 kilometers away. Most of these security measures will probably never even be needed if things stay pretty much as they are today. But if the thin veneer of civilization that we all take for granted on a daily basis continues to disintegrate and we see massive civil unrest in the years ahead, then those security measures are going to come in very handy indeed.

Comment:
My intitial response is: does this writer seriously not have a clue? Surely, he must have an inkling that things in the United States are going from bad to worse... The economic insecurity for the masses brought about by corporate greed and government complicity, is now combined with geophysical, atmospheric and climate instability... For starters the officially recognised vulnerability of the national power grid means the lights going off nationwide and not coming back on again for a very long time is no longer a distant possibility, it could well happen and soon. Hence, the sense of foreboding by many that a mega-disaster could be around the corner. Anyway, amongst the comments, this made me laugh...
Uh-huh

Honestly, in a SHTF scenario, if i had the resources and if I knew where the “elite” were hiding, I would take every bit of cement I could find and seal their steel doors with it…and call it survival of the most creative.



Will the world end in 100 days? Sounding of ancient trumpet in York warns of Viking apocalypse on 22 February 2014
Daily Mail, 15th November 2013
•Legend has it that on this day, the god Odin will be killed by the wolf Fenrir
•The soil and the sky will be stained with poison and the sea will rear up
•Prior to the apocalypse, three freezing winters would follow each other
•The sound of the horn is supposed to call the sons of Odin to the
battlefield, where Odin will ultimately be killed

If Vikings were here today, the sounding of a distinctive horn in York would have created chaos. The ancient instrument, blown last night, signalled exactly 100 days until the end of the world, according to Norse mythology. Legend has it that the Norse God, Heimdallr, would blow the mythical Gjallerhorn to warn of the Viking apocalypse, also known as 'Ragnarok'

Comment:
Of course, the Daily Mail headline misses the point completely but at least we get some useful information. For those who understand the signs of the times, the 'sky trumpets' have been blowing around the world in recent years. The key to understanding the mythology is the preservation of ancient cosmological knowledge with the possible dire consequences for the citizens of planet Earth based on previous conflagrations. In the guise of mythology, ancient knowledge has been preserved in many different traditions and now it is much easier to decode as we are living in a relevant timeframe. As I have pointed out in my The Greatest Transition long essay, it is well known amongst the learned that Earth is regular destroyed by fire or flood (look-up references) and comets causing havoc is the no. 1 cosmic adversary... Of course, most are unaware of the real meaning and significance of ancient sources of knowledge, but that can't be helped, as most have no real interest in the truth anyway.


Are Google Building a Database Centre Ark?
Is Google building a hulking floating data center in SF Bay?
It looks like Google has been working on an oversize secret project on San Francisco's Treasure Island. A water-based data center? Could well be.

CNET News, 25th October 2013
SAN FRANCISCO -- Something big and mysterious is rising from a floating barge at the end of Treasure Island, a former Navy base in the middle of San Francisco Bay. And Google's fingerprints are all over it.

It's unclear what's inside the structure, which stands about four stories high and was made with a series of modern cargo containers. The same goes for when it will be unveiled, but the big tease has already begun. Locals refer to it as the secret project.

Google did not respond to multiple requests for comment. But after going through lease agreements, tracking a contact tied to the project on LinkedIn, talking to locals on Treasure Island, and consulting with experts, it's all but certain that Google is the entity that is building the massive structure that's in plain sight, but behind tight security. [...]

Jonathan Koomey, a Stanford research fellow and expert on data centers, also said that floating data centers make sense. Although saltwater could be problematic as a cooling source, he said, it's a surmountable problem. He also said that companies like Dell, Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, and Microsoft have been installing specially built data centers in shipping containers for some time because they're easy to deploy. Google even has a patent for the concept. "It wouldn't surprise me at all," Koomey said, "if there were a bunch of containers, and it turned out to be a data center."

Perhaps more persuasive is that in 2009, Google was granted a patent for a "water-based data center," defined as a "system [that] includes a floating platform-mounted computer data center comprising a plurality of computing units, a sea-based electrical generator in electrical connection with the plurality of computing units, and one or more sea-water cooling units for providing cooling to the...computing units."

Comment:
This article put a big smile on my face.... Folk with some intelligence are making their plans, whilst the vast majority with little or no interest in reality and some with a great propensity for magical thinking, carry on blissfully unaware that a major space weather event is very very likely in the near future. Thanks Google for the patent information that provides us with some hard proof of what plans are being made to try and survive a technological meltdown.
  • Mysterious floating barge in San Francisco Bay could be secret new Google Glass facility
    Yahoo News, 25th October 2013
    CNET agrees with the speculation, pointing out that Google obtained a patent for such an operation in 2009 . But why a floating data-center? They say the water provided a natural cooling center for a massive operation like this and that the water itself is also a sustainable power source.

    The patent describes such a facility as a, “system [that] includes a floating platform-mounted computer data center comprising a plurality of computing units, a sea-based electrical generator in electrical connection with the plurality of computing units, and one or more sea-water cooling units for providing cooling to the...computing units."

    There’s just one major problem: many of these same experts say Google hasn’t sought the proper permits to open any such operation.

    Of course it is meant to be floated out to sea for emergency use only...

  • Coast Guard Comments On Mysterious Google Barge
    CBS San Francisco News, 30th October 2013
    SAN FRANCISCO (KPIX 5) – Nearly a week after it was uncovered, Google is staying silent about mysterious barges off Treasure Island and in Maine. Meanwhile, KPIX 5 has received comment from the U.S. Coast Guard about the project, and has obtained details about the barges and who owns them.

    We have found at least three barges, two with container structures on them, all marked with the letters “BAL” followed by four numbers. The two barges located at Treasure Island are identified as BAL0010 and BAL0001. A similar barge in Portland, Maine is identified as BAL0011.

    Comment:
    The servers went into the Google ark two by two, hurrah, hurrah... LOL... I am thrilled that Google are now being reported to be building three different arks. People are racking their brains about what this all means but I think this is disaster resilience in action... The concept of arks and survival are deeply embedded into the human psyche due to the preservation of ancient knowledge in the form of mythology turned into holy scripture, so even though many would want to deny the implications at a superficial level, very few will miss the conotations at a deeper subconscious level. So, here is some info I found:
    The company has a long history of April Fool’s jokes, but we’re five months too early for that. Google is still finding room for humor in what appears to be a serious project. The barges are owned by a Delaware company called By and Large LLC, a likely reference to “Buy N Large,” a corporation in the futuristic film WALL-E. And the barge numbers are in binary code (BAL0011 in Maine, BAL0010 in San Francisco).
    Google’s crazy barge scheme: Your complete guide
    Washington Post, 30th October 2013
    N.B. Binary codes for 1,2 and 3, 0001 = 1, 0010 = 2, 0011 = 3
    Buy and Large built the spaceships that sent humans into space after life became uninhabitable on Earth.

    This is some hilarity from Lucky Charm at GLP
    • Offshore server banks... smart.
    • Sail those puppies into international waters, invoke maritime laws etc.
      Declare cyberspace to be an independent state.
    • Peoples republic of Google is born, currency is bitcoin, laws are Googles corporate policy.
    • Google becomes a "government" of sorts, capable of waging (cyber)war, buying and selling etc etc.
    • 2016 google demands a seat at the UN.
    • 2020 google goes to war against an increasingly beleaguered and aggressive United States, international community does not assist the us... red states, china and russia actively support google..
    • 2022, fall of US, rise of the cyberstate.
    • 2030 Google is worlds only superpower, acquires nuclear weapons in form of ex-US naval subs.

      I'm just talking shit for fun, but I like trying to think of alternate "future histories", the way the world could go if things happened just so. [END QUOTE]

    But folks, knowledge is power... who knows what could happen. I am just thrilled that I side-stepped the damn idiots bleating crap re: 2012 and saw the implications of space weather early... This revelation about Google's plans makes it obvious that some of the most knowledgeable and intelligent have not been idle...

  • EXCLUSIVE: They're multiplying! THIRD mystery Google barge found lurking in San Francisco bay as MailOnline takes the closest look yet at secret 'party boats'. . . followed every step of the way by security guards
    Daily Mail, 2nd November 2013
    The mystery of exactly what Google is building on a barge close to San Francisco deepened today as a MailOnline investigation uncovered a second structure being built hastily at the top secret site. The huge structure, made up of specially modified shipping containers, looks set to be identical to the first. Another, identical barge has been spotted thousands of miles away on the East Coast in Portland, Maine.

    Speculation is rampant over what the barges will be used for - with the two most likely reasons being floating showroom 'party boats' to market Google Glass or data centers that can be cooled by sea water.

    Comment:
    This is a piece that has been written to rubbish the idea that these are floating data centres, but it is all just pure speculation. The patent details are the best evidence we have that these Google 'ark' barges can be used for disaster recovery. Google Glass promotion is just a nice way to spin the news of this secretive project.


Doomsday survivalist steals $400,000 in coins from company vacuums to build massive off-the-grid home
Daily Mail, 13th October 2013
* Berry funded the three-story house by raiding the coin vaults of a car wash
* His ex-wife Tasha Buxton also believes he is hiding $50,000 cash or coins
* He still reportedly lives in the Bald Mountain house

A 60-year-old doomsday survivalist has been convicted of stealing $400,000 in coins from his employer to build a massive off-the-grid home to prepare for the world's end.

Alaska's Steven D. Berry funded the three-story home - which boasts a gym, hot tub, secret passageways and a Gatling gun on a swivel mount loaded with a belt of bullets - by raiding the coin vaults of a local car wash.

Comment:
The subject of preparing for disaster is now quite topical, but my main focus is our world is not prepared to adequately cope with new cosmic conditions and the knock on effects... Quite frankly, I feel vindicated in pointing out the relevance of space weather despite the general lack of interest by many who cannot comprehend basic facts and prefer to "think positively," which is a euphemism for not thinking at all... In this regard, I am quite astounded by scholars at Oxford and Cambridge now admitting that huge blackouts are possible and that a few tin-cans in storage might be helpful... Obviously, this advice is totally inadequate, in fact piss poor... I would have thought they could have at least referenced NASA's 2009 report Severe Space Weather Events--Understanding Societal and Economic Impacts report, (the .pdf summary can be downloaded here , and plenty of other reports that state clearly that our modern technological society will quickly collapse without electricity and the reality is many millions will die. That is the choice society is making by the general lack of interest in reality and preference for being superficial.



James Rawles Warns: “Be Prepared To Hunker Down For Months”
SHTF News, 22nd September 2013
As you consider the threats we face and the options available to you should the worst happen, you have no doubt played out numerous scenarios surrounding the effects of a total collapse event that would bring down the national power grid. Be it a cyber attack which DHS Secretary Napolitano says has a 100% likelihood of occurring, a super-EMP weapon being detonated in the skies of America, or a natural disaster involving a highly charged coronal mass ejection from the sun, the possibility is quite realistic.

Some have escaped major cities and headed for the hills, but considering that the majority of the U.S. population is centered in 146 of the country’s 3000 counties, chances are most of us will find ourselves in the middle of the worst that humanity has to offer.

Comment:
I suppose there are many naysayers who refuse to look at the warnings from many different sources that our so-called techno-civilisation could quickly collapse if the plug is literally pulled (national power grids collapse). Actually there are many different disaster scenarios and the United States gets a fair share on a regular basis, hence the growth of U.S. disaster preppers who realise they have no other choice. The most intriguing warning that I have come across is NASA warning their own employees to be disaster ready, but nothing specific disclosed as to why the advice was given... Whatever, most agree the worse place to be will be in the cities with lots of crazed/angry/desperate/predator types with guns or other weapons... that and the fear that members of various government agencies will have orders to shoot anything that moves...



Killer robots and crippling cyber attacks: How the world is going to end - according to super brains such as Stephen Hawking
Daily Mail, 13th September 2013
* Members of a society, which includes Stephen Hawking and Robert May, will identify threats to humanity and devise ways of ensuring its survival
* The Cambridge Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSER) is led by the Astronomer Royal and Cambridge don Martin Rees
* Lord Rees believes the main threats to sustained human existence now come from people, not from nature

They are an improbable group of superheroes. But some of Britain's greatest minds have got together to focus their powers on saving humanity from itself.

Led by the Astronomer Royal and Cambridge don Martin Rees, famous thinkers such as physicist Stephen Hawking and former Government chief scientist Robert May have formed a society to draw up a doomsday list of risks that could wipe out mankind.

From crippling cyber-attacks by terrorists using the internet to cause havoc, to the release of engineered diseases and killer computers, they warn the future is far from rosy. [...]

'The ones that we are not so well aware of are the technological threats.

Our reliance on technology leaves us vulnerable to it. We use interconnected systems for everything from power, to food supply and banking, which means there can be real trouble if things go wrong or they are sabotaged.

'In a modern, efficient world, we no longer stockpile food. If the supply is disrupted for any reason, it would take about 48-hours before it runs out and riots begin. So on a practical level, individuals should keep some non-perishable items at home.


'Energy security is also an issue, as we import much of our fuel from abroad, so a conflict over resources in the future is possible.'

Comment:
I missed this... It seems that academics at Oxford and Cambridge have woken up to the reality that the mentality of humans is now a major threat to the survival of humanity.... The penny has well and truly dropped... These guys sound like would be disaster preppers... I wonder if any of them watched the UK CH4 documentary Blackout... you would have to be truly stupid to miss the point there.... So, anybody with any intelligence knows that nationwide blackouts can only induced by a major space weather event (the U.S. have their national grid power down drill in mid November), so it seems even the super-intelligent have realised that they willl not be immune from the repercussions of a big blast of reality... Told ya so...

  • Existential Risk Prevention as Global Priority
    Nick Bostrum Oxford University, 30th September 2013
    ABSTRACT: Existential risks are those that threaten the entire future of humanity. Many theories of value imply that even relatively small reductions in net existential risk have enormous expected value. Despite their importance, issues surrounding human-extinction risks and related hazards remain poorly understood. In this paper, I clarify the concept of existential risk and develop an improved classification scheme. I discuss the relation between existential risks and basic issues in axiology, and show how existential risk reduction (via the maxipok rule) can serve as a strongly action-guiding principle for utilitarian concerns. I also show how the notion of existential risk suggests a new way of thinking about the ideal of sustainability.


Are you ready to embrace the apocalypse?
Facing up to the slow collapse of our planet is hard, but thinking apocalyptically could help us prepare for the crises to come
Guardian, 15th August 2013
This weekend the Sustainability Centre in Hampshire will be home to Uncivilisation 2013, which describes itself as "a gathering of people searching for answers to questions about our collective future in a rapidly changing and depleting world". At Uncivilisation about 400 people are expected to attend sessions including a wild-food foraging workshop, a talk on moving beyond a monetary-based economy, and a ceremony of singers and storytellers leading the group in a "liturgy of loss". [...]

The Uncivilisation festival is put on by Dark Mountain, a publishing venture founded in 2009 with an annual journal and ongoing blog. One of Dark Mountain's primary sustainers is Paul Kingsnorth, a disillusioned former environmental journalist who has come to the conclusion that we are in an inexorable period of "slow collapse". To Kingsnorth and his Dark Mountain followers the problems are intractable. There is no turning back, halting global warming, ending our lifestyle of rampant overconsumption and environmental destruction. The Dark Mountain goal, then, is to give a forum to voices willing to acknowledge that no matter how ardent we are about recycling and voting green, we will still be living in a time of disintegration, a time of ongoing loss.

Comment:
Very interesting... A forum for 'Green' depressives? So are we seeing the start of what some might call a very dark 'green' meme [Spiral Dynamics]? I would define this as an awakening for Greens that civilisation is going down the toilet but presumably, this has combined with a deep pessimism that there is not enough power available to help humanity up to the next stage.



Big blue cock erected on fourth plinth in London's Trafalgar Square
London mayor Boris Johnson unveils Katharina Fritsch's Hahn/Cock, the latest artwork to fill square's empty plinth
Guardian News, 25th July 2013
There is simply no other way of putting it, and nor would earthy British wit have it any other way. A giant bright-blue cock – its feathers proudly upstanding, its coxcomb as stiff as a pennant in the breeze – has been erected in Trafalgar Square, London, and no double entendre is too good for it. Hahn/Cock, the latest work to fill the square's empty fourth plinth, [...]

Hahn/Cock, which was selected by the Fourth Plinth Commissioning Group (a body that includes artists Grayson Perry and Jeremy Deller), will occupy Trafalgar Square for 18 months.

Comment:
Hmmmmm.... The erection of a blue cock in Trafalgar Square should be of some esoteric interest to mainly religious scholars. For those who need a clue: what does the cockerel signify on church steeples? Interestingly, the image icon comes from the Telegraph version of this story, Fourth Plinth Trafalgar Square: Cock, review, that tells us this plinth has hosted another good sculpture, Mark Wallinger’s Ecce Homo that is described as a Christ-like figure.... As I will repeat, the elite put information out into the public domain, (often symbolic), knowing full well 99.99% of people will not have a clue. Well, I believe this blue cockerel was commissioned to mark a significant cosmic and esoteric event. Regardless, we can all expect the ignoranti to just make pathetic stupid crude jokes.



NASA PSA features Jaden Smith and his new movie
Open Minds, 31st May 2013
Jaden Smith and NASA have joined up to help promote Smith’s new movie and NASA’s Earth Sciences programs. In a new PSA, Jaden warns people that we need to learn more about our environment so we don’t end up with the futuristic Earth portrayed in the movie.

The movie is After Earth, a collaboration between M. Night Shyamalan and Jaden’s dad, Will Smith. It stars Will and Jaden, and takes place on a futuristic planet Earth that has become hostile to human beings. The atmosphere and the animals have evolved to focus on destroying the Earth’s biggest threat, humanity. In the future portrayed in the movie, humans have actually left Earth, but the father and son team accidentally crash land on Earth and have to survive long enough to be rescued.

Comment:
How interesting.... It looks like more of the intelligentsia (even NASA scientists) are starting to see the seriousness of what could happen as we enter a period of rapid evolutionary change...



A primer on Nova Prime: the world 'After Earth'
The Philippine Star, 28th May 2013
MANILA, Philippines - A post-apocalyptic, primal world confronts Jaden Smith (“The Karate Kid”) and Will Smith (“Men in Black” trilogy) in Columbia Pictures' futuristic action adventure “After Earth.”

In the film, a crash landing leaves teenager Kitai Raige (Jaden Smith) and his legendary father Cypher (Will Smith) stranded on Earth, 1,000 years after cataclysmic events forced humanity’s escape. With Cypher critically injured, Kitai must embark on a perilous journey to signal for help, facing uncharted terrain, evolved animal species that now rule the planet, and an unstoppable alien creature that escaped during the crash. Father and son must learn to work together and trust one another if they want any chance of returning home. [...]

A Dying Earth

Starting in the 21st Century, Earth’s environment became increasingly uninhabitable. Massive seismic activity caused frequent earthquakes of alarming intensity; tectonic plates shifted, creating enormous volcanoes and violent collisions between continents; clean water became scarce and the atmospheric composition changed, resulting in deadly temperature fluctuations and air too toxic for human lungs to breathe.

By 2025 AD, it was clear that mankind would need to leave Earth, if there were any chance of survival. The governments of the world convened and mandated the construction of 10 spaceships, or “arks,” that could sustain human life on a quest to find a new inhabitable planet in another galaxy. The destruction of Earth came faster than any had imagined, however, and only six arks were completed in time for launch. Each ark could house only 125,000 – just .0000625% of the human population – but enough to start a new society. Upon leaving Earth, calendars were changed from AD to AE, reflecting our new life “After Earth.”

Comment:
Updated: I have read some more reviews and this primer is a bit hit and miss... but I still might go and see this... These days the initial storyline sounds more than plausible even likely.... See more social comment below: The metaphysical message is interesting too... especially if you believe that modern day humans have had their DNA and therefore their natural evolution interfered with and the mostly corrupted, obnoxious, vile and evil types have become a pestilence on this planet... [UK movie adverts stress that ALL the animals on this future Earth have evolved to kill humans...] This primer emphasises that 'aliens' on Nova Prime hate humans so much that they have genetically created Ursa to kill humans and due to the crash, one Ursa is on the loose trying to kill the father and son duo. Their salvation comes when the son discovers it is possible to generate a high vibration that makes the human invisible to the Ursa.... The modern day spiritual message is very clear... Those who are of a high spiritual vibration have nothing to worry about, the rest will be hunted down and destroyed because the other lifeforms don't want trouble-making low vibration humans around... Hmmmm.... I am a bit stunned by this storyline, it needs some thinking about...

    This is mainly graphics but very interesting... As someone points out in the comments.. “7% of Americans think the Planet of the Apes might come true?” Well, a lot of people have noticed that some humans are becoming more feral and that some animals are acting more human... The book and movie Planet of the Apes (1968) was set in the future AD 3978, on another planet and quite frankly, nobody can say whether the human race as a whole is fit enough to comply with universal directives and continue as the dominant species on this planet in the future...

Red Comet [Multiple Requests]
Psychic Focus, 9th May 2013
I also see some kind of discussion with government officials. My focus with that turns to military. At first I thought NASA, but then my mind redirected to government military officials. The discussion doesn't question whether this comet is there, but rather what it will do. Some of these military people don't think it will do too much but others that are wearing white lab coats are very concerned, almost hysterical during this conversation. It looks like some of the military aren't as concerned, but these higher, more scientific personnel are very concerned. Now I realize the reason the military aren't worried is because they feel confident because they have somewhere to go during a global event; whereas the military in the white coats are genuinely worried about the people themselves.

Comment:
Hmmm... At the moment there is only one very red comet. We know the Vatican are also keeping a close watch because they are only interested in self-preservation and benefiting from any celestial conflagration.

  • Rush to Mars: Comet impact could make Red Planet inhabitable
    RT News, 28th February 2013 Flashback!
    A comet near Mars may strike it in a powerful impact, potentially making the planet much warmer. The Red Planet is luring many entrepreneurs, including billionaire Dennis Tito, who aims to beat other nations by sending a man and a woman to Mars.

    The make-or-break window for this possible game-changer is October 2014. At that time, an Oort cloud comet called C/2013 A1, first discovered last month, will approach Mars, missing it by about 35,000 km, which is quite close.

    However the comet’s trajectory is still uncertain, which leaves a small chance it could impact the planet, said Russian astronomer Leonid Elenin, who worked on calculating the course of the celestial body. The comet will be travelling at a speed of 56 kilometers per second relative to Mars when it passes; if they do collide, the resulting explosion would be equal to a 20,000-gigaton bomb blast – powerful enough to leave a 50-kilometer crater on the planetary surface

    Comment:
    It looks like a VERY RED COMET AND GUESS WHO IS WATCHING....

  • C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring)
    Take a look... the Vatican Observatory are using the VATT Telescope to watch C/2013 A1 (Siding Spring)... So.... Is this the real Red Dragon/Destroyer Comet? Well, if it hits Mars, there will certainly will be a lot of destruction and some of that destruction is certain to visit this planet too... As far as I am concerned, things are getting clearer and clearer....


This is the end: Team of experts say humanity faces extinction
Yahoo News, 2nd May 2013
The crazy man walking down the city street holding a sign that reads “The end is near” might just have a point.

A team of mathematicians, philosophers and scientists at Oxford University’s Future of Humanity Institute say there is ever-increasing evidence that the human race’s reliance on technology could, in fact, lead to its demise.

The group has a forthcoming paper entitled “Existential Risk Prevention as Global Priority,” arguing that we face a real risk to our own existence. And not a slow demise in some distant, theoretical future. The end could come as soon as the next century.

There’s something about the end of the world that we just can’t shake. Even with the paranoia of 2012 Mayan prophecies behind us, people still remain fascinated by the potential for an extinction-level event. And popular culture is happy to indulge in our anxiety. [...]

"We are developing things that could go wrong in a profound way," Dr O'Heigeartaigh told the BBC in a recent interview. "With any new powerful technology we should think very carefully about what we know–but it might be more important to know what we don't have certainty about."

Comment:
These are mathematicians, philosophers and scientists at Oxford University.... people who can engage brain and think and it seems they have seen the obvious... With a little bit of focus, some intelligentsia have realised that humanity in its current manifestation is over and evolutionary change and a strong likelihood of a major extinction event created by human stupidity and greed is very very likely. If we get a major space weather event, 50 - 100 Fukushimas could quite easily occur. Personally, it is a relief to discover a few people who can actually engage brain and think long enough to process the consequences of various scenarios... But more than that, they stand up and make themselves heard...



Belief in biblical end-times stifling climate change action in U.S.: study
The Raw Story, 1st May 2013
The United States has failed to take action to mitigate climate change thanks in part to the large number of religious Americans who believe the world has a set expiration date.

Research by David C. Barker of the University of Pittsburgh and David H. Bearce of the University of Colorado uncovered that belief in the biblical end-times was a motivating factor behind resistance to curbing climate change.

“[T]he fact that such an overwhelming percentage of Republican citizens profess a belief in the Second Coming (76 percent in 2006, according to our sample) suggests that governmental attempts to curb greenhouse emissions would encounter stiff resistance even if every Democrat in the country wanted to curb them,” Barker and Bearce wrote in their study, which will be published in the June issue of Political Science Quarterly.

Comment:
And the funny thing is that when all is said and done, these 'simple folk with their simple beliefs ARE RIGHT! LOL! END TIMES = END OF AN ASTRONOMICAL CYCLE = START OF A NEW WORLD AGE... THE ESOTERIC MESSAGE IS THAT WE CAN EPECT A COSMIC DELUGE = COSMOCLIMATOLOGY = CLIMATE CHANGE + EXTREME WEATHER... SIMPLE WHEN YOU UNDERSTAND THE ASTROTHEOLOGY HIDDEN IN PLAIN SIGHT...



Tom Horn: The Lost Symbol Found [59:42]
YouTube, 22nd August 2011
Comment: The following is for those who are worried about the claims being made by Tom Horn and Chris Putnam and would like another opinion. For others who don't know what the fuss is all about, the above link is an approx. one hour introduction to how Tom Horn first stumbled across some important 2012 connections that are very helpful in helping understand what is happening to our world. He wastes about 9 minutes at the beginning making his intro with some silly Christian jokes so start at about [9:30]. The following is is an interesting summary from a a serialised version of Apollyon Rising .pdf that can be found. My copy had no references and the proper book is on my reading list. Anyway, he writes:
When research began for Apollyon Rising 2012 and I became aware of the nearly five hundred-year-old Mayan prophecies connecting the “colonial count 1776” with the final thirteen katuns of their calendar ending in the year 2012 (and how academia viewed this as a mirror of the countdown to the “Christian Last Judgment”), I wondered if early American scholars—and specifically architects of Freemasonry involved in the design of Washington DC, the Great Seal of the United States, and other iconic artifacts important to the founding of this country—were aware of this Mesoamerican timeline. It seemed too much of a coincidence that the final thirteen katuns ending in 2012 would match the starting and ending date on the Great Seal by chance. My investigation into the matter resulted in numerous examples of the year 2012 related to America (and other places of the world), which I detail in my book. But due to the nature of this entry, I list here one final finding directly connected with Freemasons and the designers of the capital city in Washington DC that illustrate their knowledge of the ending date 2012.
Source: APOLLYON RISING 2012 By Tom Horn (.pdf)
The Final Mystery Of The Great Seal Revealed A Terrifying And Prophetic Cipher, Hidden From The World By The U.S. Government For Over 200 Years Is Here link
If you have been reading Tom Horn & Chris Putnam's books (Apollyon Rising 2012: The Lost Symbol Found and the Final Mystery of the Great Seal Revealed, Petrus Romanus - The Final Pope is Here” and Exo-Vaticana:Petrus Romanus, Project LUCIFER, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior) and for one reason or the other are highly confused, I would like to point out for the record the confusion is because these 'scholars' REFUSE to enlighten people that the original religious beliefs for the elite were based on astronomy and the mythologising of World Ages and the celestial energies that impact all life on this planet. For anyone who has not read my essay, The Greatest Transition in the History of Mankind (June 2010), I would just like to point out that Apollo was originally a tree god from ancient times. I wrote the following:
“We know that trees have wonderful properties and that life on Earth would not viable if there were no trees on the planet, but the ritual and practices derived from tree worship is based on a Sacred World Tree that dominated the sky. It was seen all around the world and was so breath-taking that it was worshipped by primitive people. ‘The ancestors’, ‘living beings’ or ‘heroic beings,’ used this conduit or ‘cosmic string’ as a highway between heaven and Earth, therefore, they too were worshipped. Over time, these ‘Ancestors’ were deified and became tree gods and gradually the imagery changed to become totally anthropomorphic. So, in the age of Greek and Roman gods, the imagery of the pantheon reveals little laurels around their heads, which is all that is left of the original sacred tree.”
Source: The Greatest Transition in the History of Mankind (June 2010) by Susan Joy Rennison
As I explain in my essay, Apollo was derived from the beings who were considered tree gods in ancient times by primitive people that morphed over time from representing the big sacred tree (that appears at times when Earth is in a high energy state) to becoming anthropomorphized as an assortment of man-gods. With the need to tap into ancient primordial memories and archetypes, Jesus with the crown of thorns is purposely not too dissimilar to the depiction of Apollo and an image example is provided in my essay. So, all the ranting by Tom Horn and Chris Putnam about Apollo, Nimrod etc, being Satan and demonic is too simplistic and very ignorant... Obviously, the enlightenment only comes if you can recognize the layers upon layers of mythology mostly based on the consequences of World Ages and celestial outpourings of energy sometimes generating a Golden Age or sometimes causing cataclysm. Hence, this is where the terminology comes from for those looking forward to the return of Apollo.... I believe it symbolises Earth's high energy state NOT the ‘The ancestors’, ‘living beings’ or ‘heroic beings,’ and most certainly NOT Satan or demons.... Well sometimes, I truly wonder about Tom Horn, his brilliance mixed with ‘bonkers’ religious zeal is quite something to behold.... I suppose his blind spot concerning astrotheology must be huge.... Btw, for anyone who hates the fact that I am trying to teach those who are seeking truth. Well I would like to say in my defence that some of us have made the choice to spiritually evolve and helping others out of the darkness and confusion. The only way to do that is to sort out the copious amounts of ridiculous religious teachings specifically designed to entertain the simple masses and keep them stupid and in finding the kernel of truth that will empower and liberate. For newbies, read my Greatest Transition essay, I believe it provides a tremendous amount of light for true seekers... Finally, why is this important? Horn and Putnam are spreading some truth mixed with a very heavy dose of speculation and scaremongering. We are not all dumbed down... Somebody has to stand up and point out the real nonsense because when ET disclosure comes (it looks like that will be soon), there will be a major crisis for some and I think some unbias education will help some to recover more quickly, but who else is aware of what is happening and cares two hoots?



Exo-Vaticana: Petrus Romanus, Project LUCIFER, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior
Raiders News Update, April 2013
Comment: Well, I have finished reading my paperback copy of Exo-Vaticana, but I now feel a strong need to detox and purify myself from the intellectual mishandling of information found in parts of the book. The quotes from none religious people were fine, even the quotes from Catholic theologians were fine because they are just direct quotes but I had real problems with some of Horns & Putnams badly mangled extrapolations provided as 'insight'. Horn et al.'s most recent books that I have read imply to me that despite all the research and writing on the same subject for many years, the central issue comes down to the need to justify theology based on a Bible that was cobbled together from ancient sources and twisted to suit Roman Catholic controllers creating a man-made religion. The most irritating attribute is the patronising of others and the almost childish passing off anything outside of normal human awareness as 'alien' or demonic. So, I am not convinced this is a truly scholarly. For example, there is the almost unbelievable acknowledgement of astrotheology reaching into the distant ancient past in the form of a 'Gospel in the Stars'. Even agreeing with Christian scholars who recognised the importance of the passing of ecliptic constellations (zodiac) for marking time, but a refusal to acknowledge that the 'Christic' religion for the ignorant masses is regularly re-vamped based on major set points in the associated astronomical cycle. Thus, we have brilliant quotes from Catholic theologians that this is about to happen again, but no reference to a long historical list of previous saviours with similar christ-like attributes, which makes what Catholic theologians are now trying to achieve seem almost routine... Then there is the example of a reference to the UK Condign report but not one quote pointing out how the UK Ministry of Defence defines Unidentified Aerial Phenomena as being mostly 'lights'..... Instead what you have is examples of a whole range of paranormal phenomena, shadow life activity and suspected extraterrestrial 'mingling' with humans all designated under the umbrella terms of satanic or demonic. I personally think that unless you are a serious researcher who can determine where Tom Horn et al. are heavily speculating then I suggest you don't bother. For serious researchers, some of the collected quotes are very interesting and the free DVD is absolutely invaluable for reading source material and coming to your own conclusions. I think my final thought is that I will concede that Horn et al. are doing us a favour in pointing out that the saviour mythos is about to change because we have reached the end of an astrological age. Space Weather is the proof that a new cosmic dispensation has started, Horn et al. have provided the historical evidence that those in the know amongst the religious elite have been religiously tracking the date 2012 and the proposed changes will affect Catholics and Christians alike. However, it is my opinion that novices to relevant background sources are going to struggle sorting out the wheat from the chaff provided in this book.



Br. Guy Consolmagno, the Vatican, Alien Extraterrestrial UFOs, and stuff...
Specolations, 4th April 2013
The title is designed to reach anyone who has heard about me from a web site or book purporting to express my views on these subjects.

About a year ago, an author (whom I will not name or link to) conducted an extensive interview with me by email. I thought he was a legitimate journalist. However, seeing the ways in which he has twisted, misquoted, and invented utter falsehoods from the things I said, I have come to suspect that he is either a knave or a fool.

There are no Vatican secrets about UFOs. Neither I nor anyone I know has any evidence that extraterrestrials exist. We do not believe that "Jesus is a hybrid" or any of the other bizarre claims that this author makes. He is either seriously deluded, or a deliberate con-man.

Let me phrase this as strongly as I can: I do not know of any credible evidence at all that there has ever been contact of any form between extraterrestrial aliens and Earth. Period. I cannot imagine a circumstance where such contact could be kept secret for very long. And I say this, not only as an active astronomer for 40 years, but also as someone who knows lots of people in the SETI community (who would love to have such evidence), and as someone who's been an officer in the American Astronomical Society and in the International Astronomical Union. If there was something like this going on, we'd all be talking about it. There isn't, and we aren't.

Comment:
I had already written about reading Exo-Vaticana because I badly needed to vent (see below), but it looks like I am not the only one who is exasperated... It seems Br. Guy Consolmagno has got his copy and blown a gasket.... Actually, I am not sure who the bigger fool(s) is/are here... At the moment, Horn et al. made some big boasts about Br. Guy Consolmagno handing over vatican astrobiology documents but I cannot find anything on my Exo-Vaticana DVD "goodies", but I will keep looking... Whatever, this is a major storm in a teacup! Update! I have found the most interesting document Intelligent Life in the Universe? Catholic belief and the search for extraterrestrial life (2005) and can confirm the online quotes for the outrageous claim that contemporary societies may soon “look to The Aliens to be the Saviours of humankind” is absolutely true and not made up! See online quote EXO-VATICANA - Part 2 & download a 4 page extract Intelligent Life in the Universe? Catholic belief and the search for extraterrestrial life (2005) pg 3 - 6, however I can see why Consolmagno might decide to get upset but he is only one astronomer amongst others who have been pushing the alien theme so I can't understand why he has decided to squeal... Br. Guy Consolmagno's book BROTHER ASTRONOMER: ADVENTURES OF A VATICAN SCIENTIST (2000) is given away in the Exo-Vaticana DVD "goodies". Let's say, the chapter WOULD YOU BAPTIZE AN EXTRATERRESTRIAL? is also very incriminating but it is old news. I have extracted this chapter with the highlights provided by Tom Horn & Chris Putnam, here is the download Brother Astronomer: Adventures of a Vatican Astronomer by Guy Consolmagno pg 149 - 153 (pdf)
  • Would You Baptize an Extraterrestrial?
    New York Times, May 29, 1994
    [...] "Of course," he says in his Tip O'Neill brogue, "extraterrestrial intelligence is one of the first common religious beliefs that's held by Christians, Jews and Moslems." Father McCarthy leans forward.

    "Angels," he whispers. He pauses to let the marvel of his epiphany seep in. "But we've got to be careful that we don't prepackage our angels, with the wings of those of 16th-century artists such as Albrecht Durer and company. On the other hand we don't want to make them integral equations. They may be both!"

    Comment:
    Even in 1994, Jesuit astronomers were thinking that belief in extraterrestrial intelligence would unite the religions... I think the sleaze factor amongst the Catholic Church hieracrchy exposed by their own followers is making this more unlikely but maybe picking a Jesuit Pope Francis was a cynical plot to make some think this corrupt organisation with archaic beliefs were somehow more suitable after Francis undertakes some serious reform. Regardless, it seems some in the Vatican think they are a suitable choice to represent a Universal Church with their ability to act as an umbrella organisation to a wide spectrum of religious folk with spirituality that encompasses the sincere to the truly diabolical.... Just read the history relsting to Roman Catholicism if you have any doubt on this matter, but some Italian journalists have some good recent info on frolicking priests that is also worthy of some consideration... So, maybe it is true to say that Catholic Church does reflect the general spirituality that characterises the Cultic Milieu, but it's not a nice thought..... Whatever, the Catholic Church hopes to represent humans to "extraterrestrial intelligence" but whether they can pull this off is doubtful especially when some serious researchers who don't even profess following any religion believe that ETs are terrestrials with nefarious intent (demons). Basically, it seems some researchers are suggesting: why would sane people trust the demons in the Vatican who could be in league with ET space brothers who are really demons? This is not my opinion, I am just sumarising the research collected by Horn & Putnam in the light of what I know after studying Roman Catholicism on and off for over 30 years, an organisation that thinks nothing of commiting Pious Fraud. Please note the definition given at Wikipedia: Pious fraud (Latin: pia fraus) is used to describe fraud in religion or medicine. A pious fraud can be counterfeiting a miracle or falsely attributing a sacred text to a biblical figure due to the belief that "the end justifies the means", in this case the end of increasing faith by whatever means available. For those who have read my essay Spiritual Evolution in the Cultic Milieu (August 2011) and my blog archive Inside the Cultic Milieu, the ethics issue will be very familiar. P.S. Please note, Jesuit, Rev. Chris Corbally takes the opportunity to point out that the Garden of Eden story is a myth, infact he states, "That myth is very attractive."


Exo-Vaticana: Petrus Romanus, Project LUCIFER, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior
Raiders News Update, April 2013
Comment: I am currently reading my copy of Exo-Vaticana and so far, now reading the book "in context", my thoughts are the book lurches from the sub-sublime to the ridiculous. This "scholarly" treatise is in the sane vein as previous works by Tom Horn et al. and I have named it part of the 'Tom Horn et al. Demons Under Your Bed Series'.... My main complaint is how anyone who knows anything about the Catholic Church and their well known propensity for forgery claim that a Bible that was formulated in 600 - 800 A.D was free from manipulation and is divinely inspired when it is clearly based on much older ancient texts from civilisations that were not 'Christian'. The following was prompted after a Red Ice Interview with Tom Horn in December 2011.
“Update 4: I am quite astounded that Tom Horn is agreeing with an author who knows there was a "Gospel in the stars", but that this gospel was "demonized and converted into astrology after the fall of man, originally recorded the Gospel of God." Horn writes: "If the primary assumption of this view is correct—that an original revelation was corrupted after the fall of man and subsequently degenerated into mythologies of the pagan gods—one should be able to find numerous examples of such corruption from as far back as the beginning of history and within various civilizations around the world." I have not finished reading yet, but there seems to be a big assumption here that is deliberately vague to cover a wide variety of scenarios. I think the main issue is glossing over the discovery of ancient texts with a preponderance of biblical sounding stories that imply the Bible was generated by plagiarising older sources and whitewashing astrological references in the bible by saying they were originally some kind of 'divine' revelation.... wow... I suppose it is too much to expect Horn to do some unbias research and come to the conclusion that at least some if not all the information was generated by an elite [ancient] astronomical priest class.”
The above was actually written at the beginning of January 2012 after reading the online (serialised?) version of Tom Horn's book Apollyon Rising but I will force myself to read the proper version at some point. Free with Exo-Vaticana is a DVD full of "goodies" and it provides a book called The Gospel in The Stars or Priemeval Astronomy (1910) and a short treatise with the name Gospel in The Stars by Julie VonVett with the final statement, "How wondrous is the age-old story that God has painted for us in the night sky." ???? Yet, as I have already recently pointed out, Jesus Christ was a name applied to a god who was given the same attributes as a previous long list of saviours, see the online book Symbolism in Relation to Religion 1915 pg 307 by James Ballan Hannay, List of Sons of God, Messiahs, Saviours Born of a Virgin to Save Mankind . This book The Gospel in The Stars or Priemeval Astronomy is now on my very very long reading list especially since the author says in the Preface that my friend Sir William Drummond (ca. 1770-1828) presents some pertinent facts.... (I love these old books written at a time when scholars were real scholars....). Personally, I would be amazed if Horn et al. would even dare to mention Drummond especially as Drummond scorns the mythos for the rabble and states that all is not lost and cleverly points the existence of ancient Zodiacs and the connection with the astrotheology embedded in the Bible. [...]

Whatever...

The Catholic Church has a HUGE reputation for fakery but Tom Horn still expects intelligent people to believe his logic that uses this same fabricated mythos created by those in charge of a man-made religion that was largely based on mistranslating ancient texts. It is my understanding that ancient texts were revered and great care was taken to preserve the integrity of ancient works until the Catholic Church came along and in their thirst for power just corrupted anything they thought could give them any kind of leverage. The same way the calendars were corrupted until they could not even work out what century we were living in.... If you want an example of the sick mentality here is a fantasic exposé Vatican, skulls and bones. So far, my analysis is that the best parts of Exo-Vaticana are chapters with a minimum amount of biblical references, theological arguments and therefore contrived reasoning. However, I was apalled that in Chapter 7, there was no analysis of why the Catholic Church would be hosting astrobiology conferences and discussing 'Shadow Life' or even provide a short summary of the criteria used by astrobiologists to denote life, the short discussion of abiogenetics or life from non-life is in my opinion not enough. Interestingly, we are given a pertinent quote from Paul Davies, a well known theoretical physicist, cosmologist and astrobiologist, and the director of the BEYOND Center for Fundamental Concepts in Science at Arizona State University, link. He is currently championing the theory that Earth may host a shadow biosphere of alternative life forms. Davis argues that there is a possibility that life might have started many times on Earth itself and whether this means alternative life-forms have survived and are still present in the environment, constituting a kind of shadow biosphere, a term coined by Carol Cleland and Shelley Copley of the University of Colorado at Boulder, see a copy of a 2007 Scientific American article by Paul Davis, Are Aliens Amongst us? & research paper Searching for a shadow biosphere on Earth as a test of the ‘cosmic imperative’. But I was gobsmacked by the attempt by Horn & Putnam to pass off the Apostle Paul's beliefs as an ex-Jewish Pharisee as being seriously worthy of consideration in today's world. We are given details of three heavens; 1st heaven is where the birds dwell, the 2nd heaven is a war-zone where Satan rules and the 3rd heaven is the dwelling place of God from which the "angelic spheres of God spread outward". Of course, there is no mention of what these angelic spheres are about but based on the rest of Tom Horn et al.'s writings, any spheres you might see are probably demons or satanic... Well, since the Vatican's attempt to change the mythos will probably receive a lot of attention, hopefully, there will be others who take up the challenge and provide some light for those who are going to be shocked by UFO/ET Disclosure and then be left bewildered as the Catholic Church seeks to take full advantage of the inevitable crisis and overwhelm their followers and anybody else who would be interested in their new ET gospel.



Pope Francis the Humble
Long-Awaited Healer of Wounds or Envoy of the Final Deception?
Johnny Cirucci's Patriot Press, 25th March 2013
The Catholic Church is an institution in turmoil. [...]

But what is truly interesting is that Bergoglio is the first Jesuit to sit as Pontiff. Since the formation of the Society of Jesus in 1534, the militant order has never achieved such high honor. Maintaining founder Ignatius of Loyola’s staunch dedication, Jesuits are still well known for their loyalty to the Catholic hierarchy. Loyola’s charter, The Spiritual Exercises, contained a series of requirements by adherents titled Rules for Thinking with the Church. Rule #13 states:
That we may be altogether of the same mind and in conformity with the Church herself, if she shall have defined anything to be black which to our eyes appears to be white, we ought in like manner to pronounce it to be black.

Comment:
Updated: I think the Jesuit oath provided above is an indication that blind belief in the teachings and dictates of the Holy Catholic Church is a major requirement... For me, this is worrisome... I think the problem is the more Fundamentalist Christian establishment are generally ignoring the astrological implications of the Malachy’s “Prophecy of the Popes”. Whatever, based on the fact that the Vatican has been very very careful to preserve the date 2012 by making sure the average reign of a pope matches the solar cycle (but there is an issue with various antipopes and the Seri debarcle at the 1958 and 1963 conclaves is a prime example), when the astronomical-astrological age aspects are ignored, the hype about the end of the Catholic Church and the arrival of the antichrist all becomes highly subjective. Christians being excited because the cosmic conditions in our solar system have changed, Earth's magnetosphere is weak and the 'sound of trumpets' in the sky as clearly indicated in the bible amongst other signs that indicate the return of Christ only makes sense in terms of a change in the flux of cosmic energies... Jesus Christ is not swirling around this planet like Superman causing strange atmospheric phenomena... For those who are ready to move on, understanding Space Weather, the concept of energy driven evolutionary change and all the implications, is the only way forward. In terms of moving forward, blaming the weather on global warming and Co2 has failed abysmally, the glorious aim of making a killing from carbon trading has died a painfull death... Next, we have the battle for changing the religious myth... We have "A New World pope for a New World Age" but the implementation of "A New Myth For A New [World] Age" might prove to be a little bit more difficult. If you like, there is a great need for myth-busters on this planet right now.



Does ET pray? Deep questions of faith and astrobiology
Catholic SF, 13th March 2013
Revelation applies to whoever we meet in space. Jesus became man once for all time at a specific time and place as a Jew in Bethlehem, and that includes any intelligent life that might exist in our galaxy or beyond. - Jesuit Father Jose Gabriel Funes

Is there life in our solar system? In our universe? Beyond?

“The question of whether we are alone in the universe – however you care to frame that – is one of the most profound questions science can ask, and, I think, will answer in our lifetimes,” University of Arizona astronomy professor Chris Impey told a Vatican Observatory seminar on astrobiology Feb. 23 in San Francisco. [...]

“If we do find intelligent life, even if we can’t really connect with it, that’s going to be extremely significant in a different way,” said Father Stoeger. “Another intelligent civilization in our galaxy indicates that there are two civilizations in a very small region in our galaxy. That statistically means a lot more.”

Then, Father Stoeger asked, would they be “capable of prayer? Then it would be just like evangelizing another culture.”

“Revelation applies to whoever we meet in space,” said Jesuit Father Jose Gabriel Funes, who Pope Benedict XVI appointed director of the Vatican Observatory in 2006. Jesus became man once for all time at a specific time and place as a Jew in Bethlehem, and that includes any intelligent life that might exist in our galaxy or beyond, he said.

“From our faith, we know we are children of God,” said Father Funes, who is an ex-officio member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences. If we find spiritual beings in outer space, “These people would also be beings created by God,” Father Funes said, and they may “help us understand God better.”

Comment:
24th March 2013: The ET Saviour is coming... I am currently reading the serialised version of Tom Horn's and Chris Putnam's Exo-Vaticana: Petrus Romanus, Project LUCIFER, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior online and am waiting for my paperback copy. So far I am disappointed. A lot of what I have read is a re-hash of information already well understood, but must be placed in the book for those who have little or no background knowledge. Yet, besides the stuff that is supposed to suggest real scholarship, there are a few paragraphs that are just pure garbage as they represent huge amounts of conjecture and 'interpretation'. This happened in the book Petras Romanus too and some of it was just infantile in comparison to the analysis and opinion of real historians and scholars like Prof. Robert Temple discussing the exact same subject. Maybe, I should not have expected anything better, because the refusal to acknowledge the astrotheological nature of biblical and other antiquated astronomically based religious sources means it is impossible to convey the real messages that have been preserved. Even basics like what is an antichrist? An antipope is just the arrival of another pope who does not meet the normal criteria like Pope Francis... Because most Christians are oblivious to the astrotheology it is impossible for them to appreciate that this is all about the arrival of a new dispensation of cosmic energy and the arrival of a new 'Cosmic Christ' upsurping the previous dispensation and source of 'Christ' energies... From what I have read the only way to understand the relevant biblical scriptures is some basic understanding of evolutionary biology and genetics.... It is OBVIOUS to me that this is how it should be interpreted... Surely, there must be some real brains on the planet that have already worked this out? All we have now is warped manipulators working out how to frighten the dumbed down masses into the next paradigm of religious mental bondage. Basically, Tom Horn & Chris Putnam have managed to dig up some valuable raw data that they have used to make various claims about the intentions of Catholic theologians who are busy trying to perpetrate their man-made religion, but sadly, the real spiritual implications for 'initiates', truth seekers and people I am now calling Spiritual Progressives remains buried.



A 500 Foot Noahs Ark Being Built in Hialeah
NBC Miamis, 4th March 2013
A group in Hialeah is going Biblical.

The Hidden Ark group began building a 500-foot wooden Noah’s Ark on the outskirts of Hialeah that will be both a zoo and a way to raise awareness about the current environmental changes.

“It’s a religious thing because it’s Noah and God teaches us to protect animals,” said Carolina Peralta who is part of the group, hiddenark.com. “You’re using Noah’s Ark to make a statement about helping animals and conserving our planet.”

'End of the World’ 2013: St. Malachy Prophecy, Nostradamus, Comet ISON, and the ‘Last Pope’ Connections
International Business News (AU), 21st February 2013
"End of the World" is becoming a subject of discussion again, just two months after the no-show of the Dec. 21 doomsday scenario. The Mayan calendar and asteroid Nibiru are no longer at the center of doomsday talks. This time, the Vatican, Nostradamus, St Malachy, and the Comet ISON are front and center of talks about the end of times.

Nostradamus and St Malachy are being cited as the source of predictions that the next pope will be the last pope, and his church reign shall herald the world's end. The Comet ISON is allegedly a manifestation of these predictions.

Comment:
The "End of the World" or "End of the Catholic World" discussion is coming from Tom Horn's work and his book Petrus Romanus and the fact that the massive comet ISON appears fits into the archetypal 'signs' and 'portents' used by the Vatican, many different prophecies forecasting doom for the so called 'Holy' Catholic Church and general 'End Times' Christian eschatology. This is NOT being driven by the New Age community who largely got sucked into the 2012 Winter Solstice hype due to fundamental problem of not understanding that the END OF AN AGE or 'End Times' of a 25,920 precessional cycle does not happen in 1 day. The disaster preppers and doomsday lovers who got sucked in by the Comet Elenin false alarm were duped by the refusal to pay attention to space scientists who can understand something about comets, their orbits and their interactions with the sun and planets as they pass through our solar system. I think there was a deliberate plan there too... Whatever, we have a juxtaposition of those who understand the existence of a world-wide astronomical based religions originating from ancient times that covertly warns about times of conflagration and "judgement" and a plethora of ever changing cults (encouraging a flavour of the day cult mindset) that just exist to dupe the gullible and create fear for the betterment of powers and principalties, orchestrated by their power mad agents on Earth. In short, Comet ISON is a MASSIVE COMET THAT IS COMING TO WITHIN 37.2 MILLION MILES OF EARTH BUT COMET TAILS CAN STRETCH HALF A BILLION MILES.... THE ISSUE IS WHETHER THERE ARE TOXIC SUBSTANCES IN THE COMET TAIL AND WHETHER THOSE COMET TAILS WILL POLLUTE OUR ATMOSPHERE... THE SCENARIO OF A CHRISTMAS PASSOVER EVENT AS EXPLAINED BY MCCANNEY MIGHT MIGHT NOT BE FANCIFUL AT ALL... WE WILL HAVE TO SEE...
  • THE HOPI PROPHECY of the Blue & Red Star Kachinas
    Awakening As One, February 2013
    Do you remember back in 1997, the Hopi Elders appeared with Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf on Art Bells Coast to Coast show, they spoke to millions of wary listeners around the world as they. predicted. the coming of The Blue Star Kachina and that the Purifier, the Red Star Kachina would follow shortly after the twins had (Hale-bopp) passed from our heavens. They spoke about us seeing strange things going on with animals, frogs with six legs, rabbits with four ears, animals being born with both genders. They spoke of Earth Changes, and ‘Firestorms.” and they talked about the Eight Thunders Prophecies… and the Pale Prophet.

    The following is an excerpt from LAST CRY Native American Prophecies & Tales of the End Times, by Dr. Robert Ghost Wolf © 1994-2004 It has appeared in numerous articles over the web, and in magazines all over the world.

    ” The story of the Blue Kachina is a very old story, very old. I have been aware of the story of the Blue Kachina since I was very young. I was told this story by grandfathers who are now between 80 and 108 years of age. Frank Waters also wrote about Saquasohuh, the Blue Star Kachina in The Book of the Hopi, The story came from Grandfather Dan, Oldest Hopi [...]

    “When the Purifier comes we will see him first as a small Red Star which will come very close and sit in our heavens watching us. Watching us to see how well we have remembered the sacred teachings.

    “This Purifier will show us many miraculous signs in our heavens In this way we will know Creator is not a dream. Even those who do not feel their connection to spirit will see the face of creator across the sky. Things unseen will be felt very strongly.

    “ Many things will begin to occur that will not make sense, for reality will be shifting back in and out of the dream state. There will be many doorways to the lower world that will open at this time. Things long forgotten will come back to remind us of our past creations. All living things will want to be present for this day when time ends, and we enter the forever cycle of the Fifth World.

    “We will receive many warnings allowing us to change our ways from below the Earth as well as above. Then one morning in a moment. We will awaken to the Red Dawn. The sky will be the color of blood, many things will then begin to happen that right now we are nor sure of their exact nature. For much of reality will not be as it is now.

    Comment:
    The Red Star is obviously a comet. Once you have listened to James McCanney on Comet C/2012 S1 (ISON) and 'The Red Hand of Death' (see links below), then the description here of 'The Purifier' or The Red Katchina, who will bring the Day of Purification will match what we are being warned of in this prophecy. What I find most interesting is the information is very specific as it links up a lot of strangeness that I have noted on my blog and tried to explain... The article is also very useful because the original source is also cited. Thanks to P. Barnes for the link. Update: Due to my research, I suspect Catholics have been warned about a final chastisement that will affect the whole of mankind... A purification... At the moment, I want to check out more prophecies because there seems to be a link with the promised three days of darkness... That would be a major blown fuse for the whole planet... We have seen this before on this planet for extremely short periods and highly localised, but what I have seen and the lack of understanding about what causes sunlight, makes me suspect a plethora of prophecies from different sources are a valid warning.


TOM HORN WITH GEORGE NOORY ON COAST TO COAST, November 25, 2009
Coast to Coast Radio, February 2013 Important Info!
Researcher Tom Horn discussed how 2012 is a pivotal time which coincides with prophecies from not only the Mayans, but Christianity, Judaism, Freemasonry, and other groups. For instance, the Cherokee Rattlesnake prophecies also end in 2012, and over 700 years ago Jewish priests prophesied in the Zohar that the Messiah would arrive in the year 2012. Cultures separated by thousands of miles or years refer to 2012 and the return of their God as common themes, he stated.

Interestingly, a 500-year-old Mayan prophecy relates to the founding of America, referring to the year 1776, and a 13-step countdown ending in the year 2012, said Horn. Many U.S. Founding Fathers were aware of these prophecies, and incorporated this knowledge into designs in Washington DC, such as the US Capitol dome, and in the Great Seal of the US, which depicts the return of a pagan god, he detailed.

As for what might occur in 2012, Horn noted that according to NASA, the time frame of 2012-2013 could bring powerful solar storms, and we could be knocked off the grid for up to three years. He also talked about the increased experimentation with transgenic creatures that are bred with mixed human and animal DNA, and how this is a repeat of what the Watchers (Nephilim) did back in the biblical era.

Comment:
Copy found on YouTube (01:11:46): 2012 Prophecies : Mayans, Christianity, Judaism, Freemasonry & More THIS LINK IS PROVIDED FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO KNOW HOW THE POPE'S RESIGNATION HAS A DIRECT LINK TO THE 2012 PROPHECIES CONCERNING THE END OF A WORLD AGE. Tom Horn does acknowledge that the focus on the End of a World Age or "End Times" can be found in various religions and cultures around the world and because he is a scholar with access to vast libraries (he is a publisher, he has a team of researchers and publishes ~50 books a year) so he could easily put together the facts from relevant historial and religious documents, he says he collected 6,000 pages of info for a book that condensed down into 352 pages... It is my belief that this was not done to the same level of relevant detail elsewhere. The book Apollyon 2012 will soon be succeeded by another book Apex 2012 with another 200 pages as a new summary of the information available and I urge proper researchers to check out the source material. I think Tom Horn is a brilliant researcher but he has one major blindspot... Christianity and ALL the other world religions are manufactured as they are derived from astronomy and the need to preserve ancient astronomical, scientific and esoteric knowledge. The Return of Christ is about energy and cosmic changes and NOT a God-Man-Saviour or 'pagan' gods. Anyone who is prepared to take the blinkers off and do some real research will realise this. I will repeat the following quote from one of my long essays.
Decoding Literature, Architecture, Monuments and Art

Sir William Drummond of Logiealmond (ca. 1770-1828) was a Scottish diplomat and Member of Parliament, poet and philosopher. He wrote the book, Oedipus Judaicus (1811), now considered a classic in Bible scholarship. At the time, it was printed for private circulation and only 200 copies were printed in 1811 and then in 1866, 250 copies were reprinted, after having proved highly controversial. Since the mid 1990s, due to the search for more truth and enlightenment by many individuals, copies have only been made more widely available. Drummond believed that the Old Testament of the Bible appeared to contain nothing but a collection of self-contradictory stories about a small and insignificant race of people. So he decided to prove that there was an alternative way to interpret the Bible using the science of comparative linguistics. Drummond interpreted passages from the Book of Genesis and the Book of Joshua, and explained how the Bible conveyed various truths in an allegorical fashion. Drummond suggested that the writers of the Old Testament;
“…follow the example of all the East, in blending in their narratives real with fictitious events and involving important lessons to mankind whether in morals, or in science, under the guise of recorded fact.”
This is one of the most revealing quotes of the book;
“There can be no system of religion but the true one, which is capable of satisfying a reasoning and reflecting mind. We may believe that as the Chaldeans and Egyptians advanced in knowledge, their learned men secretly renounced, while they continued openly to teach, the errors of Tsabaism, which, in the hands of such men, could have been nothing else but a system of astronomy imposed on the people as a system of religion. Accordingly we find, that the popular Gods of Egypt were in fact mere astronomical symbols. The Sun, the moon, and the Stars, were personified and deified; the conjunction and opposition of planets were made subjects of joy or lamentation; and blessings or misfortunes, were supposed to follow the rising, or setting of the unconscious constellations. When the learned had to mark the commencement of new cycles, or to denote the periodical revolution of the Stars, new gods were introduced into the Pantheon, as regularly as changes were noticed in the calendar. As astronomical periods succeeded each other, the sun, under new appellations, was adored on the throne of heavens; and even as he proceeded in his annual course through the signs of the zodiac, he was hailed by new names and was worshipped under different attributes. Hence, the Egyptian figments concerning the dynasties and the wars of the gods; and hence all the marvels and monsters, which sprang from the allegorical mythology of Egypt.”

The Greatest Transition in the History of Mankind (June 2010)
If you look carefully, there are enough books and websites that explain the link between astronomy and the Christain narrative/religious beliefs. Quite frankly, I have much respect for great scholars like Tom Horn who have strong Christain beliefs BUT humanity needs to move on to higher levels of spiritual truth. Tom Horn does not distinguish which representations of "gods" in various different cultures that are actually related to the representation of scientific truths. He mentions the return of Quetzalcoatl, but this "god" is already flying around the Arctic Circle in the form of strong bright auroras. Plasma physicists and mythologists are already pointing out that the serpents with wings referred to in ancient mythology and ancient texts are Birkeland currents that look like luminous tendrils or 'serpents' and when they become highly electrified the plasma develops to look like 'winged' serpents. This is happening now as the planet reaches a new high energy state. The knowledge of the end/start of a new World Age had a series of astronomical events that would identify key changes in the cosmic environment, the delivery of more energy to Earth that we now call space weather and a selection of specific warnings to humanity. We must not forget that ancient astronomer-priests were scientists who used their knowledge to generate a religion for the uneducated ignorant rabble that would help to preserve at least some of this knowledge ... Today, there too many rabble rousers in the Cultic Milieu that are too ignorant and the worse offenders are shouting about 'demons', 'false gods' and slatty big-eyed aliens concerning a vast array of different scientific phenomena that they don't understand.



EXO-VATICANA (Pt 1), Mount Graham and the L.U.C.I.F.E.R. Project By Tom Horn & Cris Putnam
Raiders News, December 30th, 2012
[...] We had come with deeper questions concerning high-level Vatican astronomers and what they had been leaking to, and discussing with, media in recent years. Captivating comments from Jesuit priests like Guy Consolmagno—a leading astronomer who often turns up in media as a spokesman for the Vatican who has worked at NASA and taught at Harvard and MIT and who currently splits his time between the Vatican Observatory and laboratory (Specola Vaticana) headquartered at the summer residence of the Pope in Castel Gandolfo, Italy, and Mt. Graham in Arizona. Over the last few years, he has focused so much of his time and effort in an attempt to reconcile science and religion in public forums specifically as it relates to the subject of extraterrestrial life and its potential impact on the future of faith that we decided to contact him. He agreed to be interviewed from Rome, and over the numerous exchanges that followed he told us some things that seemed beyond the scope. He even sent us a copy of a private pdf, a literal goldmine of what he and the Vatican are considering regarding the ramifications of astrobiology and specifically the discovery of advanced extraterrestrials... in which he admits how contemporary societies will soon “look to The Aliens to be the Saviours of humankind.”

Comment:
I simply don't have time to produce relevant quotes from Tom Horn & Cris Putnam about their conclusions about what the Vatican are up to, but unless you have done a serious amount of background reading into ancient mysteries and what Vatican astronomers actually believe, the research presented here will blow your mind.... I recommend listening to a very recent 3 hour radio interview (.mp3 file) with religious scholars Tom Horn & Cris Putnam, where you will have to switch off from the Fundamentalist Christian mindset and just listen to the facts.... Tom Horn is not stupid but he does not want to acknowledge that Roman Catholicism is a religion based on astronomy because that poses a lot of problems for non-Catholics who have based their beliefs on the same scriptures that have been highly encrypted with astronomical information, formulated and 'revised' by the Catholic Church over millenia. It must be realised that Tom Horn as a Christian scholar has a strangely symbiotic relationship with the 'The Harlot' Vatican. Anyway, if you don't have time just listen to the following clips: (38.00 - 46:30, 52.00 - 56.00, 1.05.00 - )

This is damn serious if the Vatican wants to reveal a new Christain 'Gospel' and tell the world that Jesus was part 'Space Brother' because Mary was an abductee.... This is NOT the sort of information that the average Christian will even be prepared to listen to never mind accept, but Catholic theologians and astronomers are openly writing about welcoming 'Space Brothers' who are less corrupted than us... It seems they are NOT focusing on Shadow Life but it is not being ignored either.... In my opinion, some members of the Shadow Life, especially the metallic looking 'ships', are useful for wowing ignorant humans.... Btw... I don't know what to think about contactee Billy Meier after finding out his first confidant was a Catholic priest... The original spy network was regular confessions in church but today people worry about emails, skype, twitter, facebook and phone calls etc being spied on.... gnashing, gnashing... It looks like books are serialised online and you can get Part 2-12 of EXO-VATICANA by just changing the link number.
  • What the devil? Scientists tap power of 'Lucifer'
    WND News, 20th January 2013
    It’s one of the most powerful and advanced telescopes in the world – and it uses the fierce power of LUCIFER to capture images of planets outside our solar system and peer back toward the beginning of time.

    The Large Binocular Telescope, or LBT, perched atop the Mount Graham International Observatory in southeastern Arizona, contains an immensely powerful tool that allows humans to observe the faintest and most distant objects in the heavens.

    Those objects can be detected with the help of LUCIFER – a beastly set of super-cooled, near-infrared cameras also known as Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research. The first camera, LUCIFER I, was fitted to the telescope in 2010. According to some reports, LUCIFER II is set to be installed as early as this year.

    Project LUCIFER, Petrus Romanus, and the Vatican's astonishing exo-theological plan for the arrival of an alien savior. You only think you know what's coming...

    Comment:
    Mind blowing stuff, especially if you are unfamiliar with the huge amounts of research that supports the notion that man's true history has either been destroyed, hidden or lied about. If you don't have much time, just listen to the following clips: 38.00 - 46:30, 52.00 - 56.00, Official Disclosure in 2013 and Vatican preparation. Vatican following ETs on Earth now... Great story of top ranking Daniel Sheehan in 1976/1977 on behalf on US government and President Jimmy Carter asking the Vatican for ET evidence, UFO phenomenon and the alien agenda on Earth that was locked up in the Vatican archives, but they were refused. They say Knowledge is Power... 01:05:30 - 01:13:30, Nephilim, Jesus hybrid and Mary abduction mentioned! 01:37:45 - 01:39:00, 1960s Brookings Institution Think Tank report recommending hiding alien artefacts from the public, 01:43:00 - 01:45:00, Vatican astronomer Guy Consolmagno interviewd, providing shocking information and Vatican documentation re astrobiology and extraterrestrial life and the existence of aliens that can show us a better way... no doubt Vatican approved 'Space Brothers'... 02:04:00 - 02:05:00 & 02:09:30 - 02:15:30, there follows a short theological treatise on the existence of mutant humans that are unredeemable... it would have been a better if Horn had finished upby calling them psychopaths rather than Steve Quayle calling them bastards... I think Quayle is your archetypal Bible thumper... 02:51:00 - 02:54:00 Tom Horn mentions Davos 2013 Special Report but he only discusses more background information. The overall impression I got was that Horn et al. believe that the DNA of real humans is being frigged about with, but I think that science tells us that this can only be very limited, especially at a time of massive evolutionary change. I don't think the template for a new human can be changed and the facts are human reproduction rates are dropping quickly and old humans will be eradicated in a few hundred years. The discussion here of alien hybrids is my explanation for psychopaths. I believe that humans have the ability to be "Christ-like" and carry an energy that makes them spiritually superior to psychopaths and the narcissist half breed offspring... I think this is the real spiritual war that is taking place now, but obviously, Tom Horn et al use a different language and mindset to reach the same conclusion.

  • Gold, Frankincense and Mars - Guy Consolmagno
    Colbert Report, 1st December 2009 Flashback!
    Comment: copy: Stephen Colbert welcomes Brother Guy J. Consolmagno to "Comedy Central". The interview clip [6:00] is provided here. Brother Consolmagno was referenced in my book, as he seems to be a prominent Vatican spokesperson on the 'heavens' and is described as a Jesuit scholar who wrote the book The Heavens Proclaim. In his reply to Colbert's first question, Brother Consolmagno explained that in the Middle Ages, scholars first had to study astronomy as a way of understanding the Universe before they were allowed to study theology or philosophy as a way of getting to know the Creator.

    Hmmmm... That tells you just how backward things are now... Anyway, check out the NEW VATICAN interpretation of the first verses of GENESIS (my interpretation because Guy actually quotes the start of the Gospel of John, "In the beginning was the word", we get a new meaning for what WORD could mean and then when Colbert mentions angels, we get another interesting perspective that suggests the Vatican believe there is no reason why there should not be other intelligent life and creatures in the universe. WOW!!!! This is primetime knockout entertainment!

    But seriously... What exactly is a Vatican astronomer doing on a prime time TV comedy program talking about ETs and the possibility of extraterrestrial life? The metaphysical community should be ashamed for being so far behind the curve.... See articles and documents, Religion and UFOs

Psychic Talks About A Red Comet And Electromagnetic Chaos Across The Planet
psychicfocus.blogspot.com.au, 28th January 2013
Q. On a different psychic site I read that technology will be knocked off the grid for awhile and we should prepare by stocking up on food and water. Do you see this happening? If so, When?

A-I still see March of this year, this is when we are going to notice technology not being reliable.  I do not see it as being completely wiped off, I just see it as being inconsistent.  Like you might use your phone and it work fine, and then an hour later it cannot find a signal...and I see that with cars..anything electrical.  I see anything using...I am seeing like a rubber fan belt, mechanical things I feel like are almost unaffected.  One of the biggest inconveniences people will have is not having cash on hand because during down times ATM will not work, credit card machines are not going to work, cash registers....all those type of things are not going to work.  So I feel like it is important to have some kind of liquidity on you.  Having food and water IS important, because I see a lot of chaos in that time as well, and it is not that you can't get food or water, it is just the cost and the selection, and the people around make it more difficult to get what you need.  And if you do not live close to a store you may go there and then your car might not even turn on when you go to leave.  It is like I see broke down cars kind of parked in a lot of different places and I see one of the new things will be to have thieves always going around trying to start cars, because it truly a pot luck of when they work and when they don't.  I do see things being more reliable at night vs. during the day though.  People try to handle their business at night.  I even see a couple businesses like banks and I don't know, business that are normally closed during night will start to offer night shift business because they can rely more on their electronics at that time.  Consequently, people that have day jobs might find themselves working night shift jobs.   That is kind of all I see.

Q-What will the media's explanation of this be?

A-At first they are going to not even talk about it, but when it becomes undeniable they are going to say that we are in a weird phase of the sun and some kind of intensity that is given off from the sun is causing it, and that will be their rational for the inconsistency in daylight and why things work better at night.

A-It is a partial truth, because the sun goes through phases and it has not affected us like this before, but the reason that it is doing this now is because as this RED COMET comes near us and starts messing with our gravitational pull, it does something to the magnetic like field that is around earth and creates weak spots in it which allows the suns intensity to enter into our atmosphere.  That is a more full picture of what is actually happening.

Q-Will any electronics be physically damaged, or just disabled.

A-I feel like it is more of a disabled thing vs a destruction.  It is like they cannot communicate to each other.

A-It looks like they are constantly flowing, but their path is like bent into a different direction...the image I see is electronics going down a straight path and then the sun radiates off to us, and when that is intersected by the path of the electrons, the electrons turn like 90 degrees and keep flowing but go in a completely different directions, so it is really hard for me to interpret that because I do not understand how electricity works.

Q-Will planes be flying?

A-I see most flights at night, and during the day the only planes I see are very small.  I do not really see and huge planes.  And they develop weird rules about what timezone they are flying into.  Like you can only go East and not West and weird stuff like that.
[...]
Q-Will this also be the time when days get longer?

A-I do think that will happen around that time, and I definitely see that happening around March of this year and it will be slow and incremental.

Q-I have noticed yesterday when setting and old watch, that I have not set for while, that it was over 15 minutes off. I have seen this several times, an example of this was camera I had not used for 3-4 years, it lost approximately 26 minutes.

A-It lost or gained?

Q-All my items seemed to lose.

A-I feel like we are going to slowly gain, to where the max day will gain about 30 minutes.

Q-Is this due to the RED COMET?

A-Yes, I feel like it is tugging at our gravitational pull and slowing our rotation down.

Comment:
I think the predictions by a psychic in Australia about a Red Comet are so interesting that I have provided a link... Quite frankly, I am mostly interested in the description of electronics failing... I presume this is a proper savant because discussion of a comet slowing down the Earth's rotation is a strictly heretical concept... but it is the only explanation for why the Earth's rotation changed from 360 to ~365 days in the past and became a source of great grief to ancient Timekeepers... Some of this could be right, some of this could be wrong and the time frames could be wrong too but the Pope is resigning and taking himself off to the old Vatican observatory at the same time we are told of the appearance of a Red Comet, at a time that is already being called 'The Year of the Comet'... We don't know if this is a comet that has already been spotted and being seen in the light spectrum or even in the infra-red... The Red Dragon of Revelation appearing like clockwork would only add to a whole bunch of astronomical signs that have been preserved and foretold for us to expect at The End Times of a major astronomical cycle... Incredibly, it looks like common sense will prevail in the future as this psychic sees disaster resistant dome houses becoming common, (see 11th February blog entry link), this is something I am pleased to read about, almost relieved... see archives. Update: Tom Horn thinks something is coming in that can only be seen in the infra-red and that it is being watched by a conglomerate of NASA & Vatican astronomers at Mount Graham, Tucson, Arizona with the “Large Binocular Telescope Near-infrared Utility with Camera and Integral Field Unit for Extragalactic Research,”(“L.U.C.I.F.E.R.”) Bingo!



Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt [Speidi] spent fortune ahead of Mayan apocalypse prophecy
San Francisco Chronicle Blog, 29th January 2013
Reality TV stars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt frittered away their $10 million fortune because they believed the world would end in 2012.

In 2010, Pratt revealed the couple was broke and on the verge of bankruptcy, and they even gave up their luxury home and moved in with his father to save money.

He has now admitted they deliberately spent all their cash before December 21, 2012 —the day the world was set to end, according to a prophesy based on the Mayan calendar.

Comment:
I had to stop myself laughing after seeing these two in action on Celebrity Big Brother. I actually like them for their simplicity or maybe for being simpletons... I predict they will get a new fortune but hopefully be a bit wiser...



Nigeria: The 2012 Prophesies (III)
All Africa, 15th January 2013
[...] At the global level, the number and frequency of earthquakes is being downplayed by a faulty analysis. World authorities measure the frequency

of earthquakes using the 100-year average, thus hiding the fact that large-scale quakes, with over 50 times the negative impact of earlier quakes, are spiralling everywhere. Once information is distorted by analysis and interpretation, truth is obscured. The the earth recorded double the average of one great earthquake in '94, triple the average in '95 and quadruple the average in 2000. This is a big statistical departure, as does the jump from 120 strong on average to 161, 185 and 153 in the 1990s. Those are leaps of 30-50%, which are statistically significant.

They cannot be dismissed as fluke one-year deviations. [...]

...but can we see any signs in the sky? The concept of 'sky' here does not refer to the cloud we see when we look up. It was the 'sky' that told the three wise men from distant lands when the Messiah was born in Israel. The signs were not hidden, but many of those who saw it did not know what it meant. Thus the sky 'speaks' only to those who understand its language and who are attentive to its 'speech'. It tells them about the cosmic 'weather', crop harvests and failures, as well as the future of the earth and of its inhabitants. So, can we see any signs 'in the sky', and would we know what signs to look for and how to interpret them?

Science has shown that we have been living badly and mismanaging the ecosystem called earth. This easily overloads the earth's magnetosphere with certain radiations from the sun and sets the stage for magnetic storms whenever there are solar flares. At its worst this can disrupt life on earth, by changing the earth's magnetic field and overwhelming high-voltage transformers with vast electrical currents that easily short-circuit energy grids. It has happened before. Today it could induce ground currents that would knock out transformers in some parts of the world within 90 seconds. This is in addition to other damages expected to cost the United States alone (if struck) "$1 trillion to $2 trillion in the first year, with full recovery projected to take four to 10 years.

Comment:
This article for All Africa is actually quite technical and provides a useful short synopsis concerning the signs of the times.... Please note the failing magnetosphere is not caused by pollution to my knowledge or a badly managed ecosystem. Geoscientists simply don't know why the Earth's magnetic field is dropping in intensity and changing polarity in parts or why the magnetosphere (Earth's external magnetic field) is now full of holes but I suspect the cause is space weather related for a variety of reasons that are way beyond a simple explanation on this blog.... This article has such a strong Joyfire tone that I am wondering if this is a journalist who frequents this blog... If so, I am happy that he/she has got the message and is passing it on....



Phew, we survived! And now the virals have begun: Deadline passes for Mayan apocalypse without raining fire or killer earthquakes
Daily Mail, 21st December 2012
How predictable. While the apocalypse coinciding with the end of the Mayan age did not materialise today, a deluge of internet virals did.

Internet users around the world rushed to knock up weird and wonderful creations that saw the funny side when it turned out the world wasn't going to be besieged by raining fire or killer earthquakes.

For centuries, the ending of the Mayan calendar, which occured today, has been taken as a sign of an impending Armageddon.

Comment:
Lots of photos that represent an interesting snapshot of a supposed Mayan Apocalypse.
  • Forget the Mayan Apocalypse, the new date for doomsday is January 1 2017, claim Sword of God cult
    Daily Mail, 22nd December 2012
    Followers believe they will survive but everyone else will 'perish in hellfire' Gloomy prediction follows worldwide anticipation of annihilation yesterday Other forecasts are 2023, after death of the next pope and 4,500,000,000 AD The world may have escaped Armageddon yesterday but the actual Apocalypse is nigh on four years away, Doomsdayers have claimed. The new date for annihilation is January 1, 2017, according to followers of The Sword of God Brotherhood. They believe the 'Prophet Gabriel' told the Brotherhood that the 'dying time' will come on this date and only members of the cult will survive, while everyone else perishes in 'hellfire.'

Will the World End on 21st December 2012?
Thunderbolts Info, 20th December 2012
Thoughts on the Origins of the Mayan Calendar

The sacred Mayan calendar based on cycles of 260 days and 360 days can be traced back to the Olmecs living in 800 BCE but the cycles themselves have no known counterparts in the real world today. The nearest naturally occurring cycles are the Earth year of 365.2422 days which is approximated as 365.2425 days in the Gregorian calendar; and the orbital period of Venus of 224.7 days.

Many early civilisations based their calendars on a 360-day year but in the case of the Maya this cannot be ascribed to ignorance of the true length of the year. They knew the year was 365.2420 days long, which is closer to the real value than our Gregorian calendar approximation!

This is some useful background info on the high precision astronomy of ancient Mayan calendars.



Mysticism, Internet fuel Mexico's Maya "Armageddon" fears
Reuters, 17th December 2012
(Reuters) - A few words by an American scholar, a crumbling Mexican monument and the love of a good yarn were all it took to spawn the belief that the world could end this week. December 21 marks the end of an age in a 5,125 year-old Maya calendar, an event that is variously interpreted as the end of days, the start of a new era or just a good excuse for a party.

Thousands of New Age mystics, spiritual adventurers and canny businessmen are converging on ancient ruins in southern Mexico and Guatemala to find out what will happen. [...] Still, the mix of religion, ancient inscriptions and media-driven speculation about impending doom remains potent.

"I got an email the other day from a mother who was contemplating taking her own life, because she didn't know what was really going to happen, she didn't want her children to live through this ordeal," said David Stuart, a Maya expert at the University of Texas. "We can dismiss it as a kooky idea, which it is, but they're still ideas and they still have power."

Comment:
After reading this article, I think the headline should include something about vulnerable people and exploitation... I have never heard of a young Maya expert named Michael Coe who wrote in the 1960s, "that to the ancient Mesoamerican culture the date could herald an 'Armageddon' to cleanse humanity." Is that where people like McKenna and Arguelles originally picked up the idea? I have read a lot but obviously, the rabbit hole is very deep if this is true....Well, maybe Mayan academics should have got more involved instead of allowing the likes of Jenkins et al. with no academic qualifications to help hype up a Mayan Apocalypse... Overall, I really don't think there is much 2012 hysteria at all... it seems that the internet can create hype quickly but also dissipate it quickly too... I think the real issue now is that those who helped to fuel the 2012 Mayan Apocalypse hype now know about space weather and to maintain some credibility are being forced to re-engineer their stance... Whatever, it is impossible to overlook the Mayan warning of an Age of Aether or Space combined with the reality of space weather. Thus, it is truly obvious that there are many who don't understand much science or astronomy, or anything much about a spiritual universe. The metaphysical community managed to hype a lot of bad astronomy and space physics concerning a Photon Belt but this hype has now dissipated like the hot air that it was... As I have blogged, the Mayan calendar end-date marks the official end/start of a major 5,125 year period, but because it is ultimately about an energy shift, most of that shift took place over a 25 year period and 'coincides' with the onset of severe space weather and many major changes that have been documented to have occurred in our solar system. On Earth, we have reached the stage where it is now public knowledge that there is concern about living on a high energy planet where whole nations are ill-prepared for mega-disasters.... I have mentioned some of the spiritual implications in my book Tuning the Diamonds and on this blog, but more people with Spiritual Intelligence need to contribute and so far I not seen much that I think is impressive...
  • Mexico's Mayas face Dec. 21 with ancestral calm
    Yahoo News, 15th December 2012
    UH-MAY, Mexico (AP) — Amid a worldwide frenzy of advertisers and new-agers preparing for a Maya apocalypse, one group is approaching Dec. 21 with calm and equanimity — the people whose ancestors supposedly made the prediction in the first place.

    Mexico's 800,000 Mayas are not the sinister, secretive, apocalypse-obsessed race they've been made out to be. [...]

    Oprah Winfrey's website got into the act by publishing a list of "Apocalypse Dinners." It says: "Whether the world is really ending or whether you're just having a busy week, these six make-ahead meals from cookbook author Lidia Bastianich freeze well and feed many." [...]

    Expectations are also running high in New Age circles.

    Shantal Carrillo helps her mother, The Venerable Mother Nah-Kin, run the Kinich-Ahau spiritual center in Merida, and hopes to lead hundreds of people in an energy-renewing ceremony at the "dawn of the new era" at the Mayan ruins of Uxmal. They hope Uxmal, whose rounded-edge pyramid is unique in the Maya world, will act as an "antenna" for cosmic energy.

    "We have performed ceremonies for many years to reactivate the pyramid at Uxmal as an antenna, because it had been unused for many years," said Carrillo, who expects Dec. 21 "to give the world an injection of this energy" by having hundreds of people hold hands at the foot of the pyramid. It's unclear whether archaeological authorities will allow such ceremonies.

    Comment:
    Apocalypse Dinners..... as suppose this is the type of triviality we can expect from certain quarters.... Btw, New Agers are not needed to activate pyramids. The key is understanding some sacred and esoteric science and the finished pyramid will work on it's own as we have seen elsewhere.... These New Age 'activation' ceremonies are just an excuse for a jolly... Yahoo News has a whole collection of Mayan Apocalypse articles available on the sidebar....
Nearly four in 10 U.S. residents blame weather on "end times"
Yahoo News, 13th December 2012
CHICAGO (Reuters) - Nearly four in 10 U.S. residents say the severity of recent natural disasters such as Superstorm Sandy is evidence the world is coming to an end, as predicted by the Bible, while more than six in 10 blame it on climate change, according to a poll released on Thursday.

The survey by the Public Religion Research Institute in partnership with the Religion News Service found political and religious disagreement on what is behind severe weather, which this year has included extreme heat and drought.

Most Catholics (60 percent) and white non-evangelical Protestants (65 percent) say they believe disasters like hurricanes and floods are the result of climate change.

But nearly two-thirds (65 percent) of white evangelical Protestants say they think the storms are evidence of the "end times" as predicted by the Bible. Overall, 36 percent point to end times and 63 percent to climate change.

Comment:
If religious establishments and the rest of the cultic milieu taught that we live in a spiritual universe that operates on cycles, then people would know that the "End Times" and "Climate Change" are not mutually exclusive...



NASA releases ‘Told Ya So’ apocalypse video early
Yahoo News, 12th December 2012
Dec. 21, 2012, has long been rumored to be the day of the Mayan apocalypse, when Earth comes to its inglorious end. The good folks at NASA want you to know that isn't going to happen.

In fact, NASA is so confident that it recently published a video that appears as if it were intended to be aired on Dec. 22. Titled "The World Didn't End Yesterday," the four-minute clip explains how the idea of the Mayan apocalypse was a huge hoax and how the rumors began. A commenter on YouTube jokes, "The correct title for this video: Told ya so!—Love, NASA."

Time magazine reports that the space agency has been besieged with questions from citizens worried that their lives are about to end. NASA is taking the fears seriously, not because there is any danger, but because irrational fears can sometimes lead to irrational and dangerous actions. [...] NASA's official site features an area dedicated to debunking the claims. "The world will not end in 2012," NASA writes. "Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012."

Comment:
The reason is that some NASA scientists are worried about the hype and they want to stop children and teenagers committing suicide which I think is commendable.



Mayan apocalypse: Serbia's mystic mountain targeted by believers
Hotels at the base of a supposedly mystical mountain in Serbia are being inundated with booking requests from people who are convinced that the end of a Mayan calendar heralds the destruction of the world on Dec 21.
The Telegraph, 10th December 2012

Hotel owners around the pyramid-shaped Mount Rtanj, in the east of the Balkan country, say that bookings are flooding in, with believers in the prophecy hoping that its purported mysterious powers will save them from the apocalypse.

Adherents of the end-of-the-world scenario think the 5,100ft-high mountain, part of the Carpathian range, conceals a pyramidal building inside, left behind by alien visitors thousands of years ago.



Great ball of China: Farmer builds survival pod to save him (and 13 others) from tsunami, earthquake... and Mayan doomsday
Daily Mail, 11th December 2012
* Farmer Liu Qiyuan has built seven pods consisting of a fibreglass shell around a steel frame
* He hopes they will be adopted by government departments and international organisations for use in the event of tsunamis and earthquake
* The airtight spheres contain oxygen tanks and seatbelts with space for around 14 people, and remain upright when in water


With just ten days to go before the Mayan apocalypse supposedly spells the end of the world, many believers may be looking for ways to dodge doomsday. But one farmer in China believes he is ready for any eventuality after building seven emergency survival pods.

Liu Qiyuan created the fibreglass shells - dubbed Noah's Ark - after being inspired by the apocalyptic Hollywood movie 2012. Building them around a steel frame in a yard at his home in the village of Qiantun, Hebei province, south of Beijing, he says the pods can offer life-saving shelter during natural disasters such as tsunamis and hurricanes.

The pods are able to float on water and some of have their own propulsion. The airtight spheres with varying interiors contain oxygen tanks and seatbelts with space for around 14 people, and are designed to remain upright when in water.

Comment:
These disaster pods look and seem like a great idea! Clearly, Farmer Liu Qiyuan is not just thinking about a hyped one-day apocalypse event... Well, we don't have long to go before the 21st December 2012 and so hopefully, the Mayan Apocalpse hype will be forced to stop. At the moment, there is still widespread ignorance about astronomical cycles and the significance of space weather, but it is clear that most so-called spiritually influential people do not understand a spiritual universe or they would care enough to teach something relevant.... Anyway, as we hear about the latest daily disaster, it is becoming clear that the current message from people who actually care about fellow humans is about weather extremes and disaster preparedness and the spectrum of mainstream and off-beat geoscientists are remarkably in sync with disaster "preppers". As Earth's magnetic field declines whilst acting like a sieve, we have a fast moving magnetic north pole affecting weather parameters, solar storms delivering huge electrical shocks with huge electric currents arriving from space adding huge amounts of energy into Earth's atmosphere on an erratic basis etc etc. The consequences are an unstable atmosphere and seismic instability, so more extreme weather events and mega disasters are expected and people who want to survive anything that comes need to prepare anyway they can.

Mayan apocalypse: Turkish village becomes latest doomsday hotspot
A Turkish village has become the latest apocalypse hotspot, with believers of the Mayan calendar prediction that the world will end on December 21 flooding into the area.
Telegraph, 11th December 2012
Some New Age spiritualists are convinced of a December 21 "doomsday" foretold by Mayan hieroglyphs – at least according to some interpretations. Sirince, a village of around 600 inhabitants near the ancient Greek city of Ephesus, has a positive energy according to the doomsday cultists, who say that it is close to an area where Christians believe the Virgin Mary ascended to heaven.

The Mayan prophecy has sparked a tourism boom in the village, which is now expected to host more than 60,000 visitors according to local media. [...] He said the tourists at his hotel believed that the positive energy of Sirince would save them from an apocalyptical catastrophe.



End of the World? Hear the 2012 Prophecy … Direct from the Mouths of the Mayan Priests
Zero Hedge, 10th December 2012
Preface: The Mayan 2012 end of the world “prophecy” is scaring the pants off numerous children and suicidal teeangers. 1-in-10 people believe that the Mayans have prophesied the end of the world (and see this). A Google search for "Maya 2012" currently brings up 325 million hits, only slightly less than a search for the most popular words.

This post is a public service announcement to reach children and adults scared about the Mayan prophecy … to show with the Mayan priests’ own words that the world will not end in 2012. Many people are talking about the Mayan 2012 prophecy. But few know what the Mayan priests actually said about 2012. In reality, Mayan elders say something very different from what you might have heard. For example, Wakatel Utiw – leader of the National Council of Elders Mayas, Xinca and Garifuna, Day Keeper of the Mayan Calendar, and 13th generation Quiche Mayan Spiritual Leader - says that the end of the Maya calendar has nothing to do with the end of the world.

Comment:
I still struggle with the notion of real modern Mayan Elders being ignored in preference to charlatans talking crap... For real scholars and academics, it should have been obvious that this is all about the end/start of a major new astronomical cycles... After over 30 years or seeking truth combined with a series of big shocks, I have come to trealise there has been an historic great divide between initiates or astronomer-priests and the ignorant uneducated rabble easily entertained by stories. Some believe the New Age movement was created and promoted to maintain this two-tier system of belief and this might explain the volume of toxic teaching provided by big New Age publishers... Anyway, please note the opinion of Mayan Elder Carlos Barrios, who with his brother made great efforts to find out the truth by traipsing through the Guatemalan jungle during a war to interview 600 Mayan Elders who held information as part of their oral tradition.
“Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly. It's just their imagination. Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed.”
Before I wrote and self-published my book in September 2006, no author had pointed out the scientific theory of how the process of transformation of a whole planet was going to take place... I pointed out clearly the new phenomenon of space weather and the hellfire blasts coming from the Sun charging up the planet and solar system with trillions of tonnes of plasma and the equivalent of billions of megaton nuclear bombs in magnetic energy... It is just simple basic physics, energy has to come from somewhere to generate evolutionary change, but the obvious cannot be obvious to uneducated and ignorant people... Well, modern Mayan Elders have been vindicated, but some children and adults are now frightened by idiots and trolls in the cultic milieu promoting a Mayan Apocalypse...



Does Psy's 'Gangnam Style' fulfill a Nostradamus Doomsday 2012 prophesy? (Video)
Celebrity Examiner, 10th December 2012
As December 21, 2012 draws near, many believers in the "Doomsday" scenario look to an old friend for guidance: Nostradamus. And one video on YouTube claims to have found evidence that the world's most famous seer knew just what omen would signify the end of the world. That's right. It's PSY's "Gangnam Style" video which has broken all-time records for viewing.

Comment:
This is just funny.... I actually thought the interpretation would have been that Nostradamus had identified a marker in history for just how banal society had become....



How the 'Mayan Apocalypse' came from a New Age magic mushroom trip
The 'prophecy' does not stem from the Mayans at all. Instead, the beliefs come from two New Age books in the Seventies and Eighties, says a British academic.
UK Yahoo News, 10th December 2012
People who are expecting the world to end on December 21 - the so-called 'Mayan Apocalypse' - should be in for a pleasant disappointment. The 'prophecy' does not stem from the Mayans at all - or date from thousands of years ago.Instead, the beliefs come from two New Age books in the Seventies and Eighties. The two books predict outcomes as surreal as a 'upgrade' to human consciousness predicted by a spirit from the seventh century. The date itself comes from a prophecy based on a magic mushroom trip.

Comment:
José Arguelles and Terence McKenna (see image icon) are both dead but I don't have anything nice to say about either of them... I am disappointed that this academic did not provide the complete detail about McKenna channeling his magic mushrooms, but look around the internet as there are YouTube videos where McKenna talks about this.... Also, please see my archives where I point out my issues with McKenna, see Best of the Blog - End Times & 2012 and my Book Review: The Book of Destiny where modern Mayan Elder, Carlos Barrios in his book points out the indignation of Mayan Elders with Jose Arguelles because he created his own pseudo-Mayan calendar that he also for a time denoted as 'Pleidian'.... As far as I am concerned, José Arguelles and Terence McKenna were both charlatans.... This article is not exactly accurate for various reasons and real academics have been arguing about the end-date of the Mayan calendar for quite some time, nothing to do with a New Ager tripping on mushrooms... See below:
  • The Astronomical Insignificance of Maya Date 13.0.0.0. (.pdf)
    Dartmouth College, August 2009 Flashback!

    "As the year 2012 approaches, students of Maya calendrics are increasingly looking for some underlying significance to the ending of one so-called “Grand Cycle” and the beginning of another."

    Comment:
    I came across this document written by Vincent H. Malmström but once again I am disappointed that an Emeritus Professor of Geography, decides to pick holes on someone else's weak arguments with equally weak arguments and that somehow, this is a reflection on the veracity of Mayan prophecies and their calendars. Personally, I would be interested in finding intellectuals who have actually understood what Mayan Elders and indigenous sources have clearly stated about the evolution of spacetime and the arrival of a New Age dominated by space or the aether. The Mayan elders talk about a period of transition lasting twenty-five years which we now must realise coincides with the onset of increasingly extreme Space Weather and major potential problems for technological societies.

    Mayan Elders talk about various cycles of time where changes can be expected at certain points but they know that in the evolutionary process, there is NEVER an exact repeat. This is the principle that underlies chaos theory and the Lorentz's Butterfly fractal that can be derived from data that appears meaningless. Mayan Elders realise that we are experiencing evolutionary change but they also know "it's not like turning on a light" and instantaneously something happens. They have talked about Earth being cleansed and the arrival of the "defenders of the Earth", meanwhile UFO sightings are at an all time high. We have major fulfillment of Mayan prophecy and yet Mayan "researchers" and their critics have missed major aspects of their teaching and are waiting around for something to happen in 2012 when the action is taking place NOW! I do not claim to be a Mayan expert, but I pay attention to what the Mayan and other 'Keepers of Ancient Knowledge' have to say and I understand more than most about the true nature of our reality.

    It is a FACT that over the last 20 plus years, our planet has been swamped with solar, cosmic, galactic and intergalactic energies to the point where there is real panic in certain quarters and desperation has set in to persuade the sheeple that Earth requires A GLOBAL SHIELD for protection under the guise that our planet is warming, when the facts show this is not the case. However, it is evident that something major is happening when the US Air Force announces that GPS is expected to start "breaking down" in 2010 as Space Weather is generating a plethora of new atmospheric phenomena that technically can no longer be compensated for. It is my belief that knowledge based in the scientific disciplines of cosmology, astronomy, plasma physics, atmospheric physics, geophysics, geomagnetism, and bioelectromagnetism to name a few are required to understand the significance of 2012 prophecies and this has to be integrated with ancient sources of knowledge that have been passed down as metaphysical teaching. Therefore, I am interested to know who the intellectuals are that have actually understood what the Maya and other Keepers of Ancient Knowledge have attempted to convey. Therefore, let's say I am not impressed with this offering.

  • Mayan Calendar Discovery Confirms 2012 'End Date'
    Discovery News, 29th June 2012
    An ancient Maya text has emerged from the jungles of Guatemala confirming the so-called "end date" of the Maya calendar, Dec. 21, 2012.

    Considered one of the most significant hieroglyphic finds in decades, the 1,300-year-old inscription contains only the second known reference to the "end date," but does not predict doomsday.

    "The text talks about ancient political history rather than prophecy," Marcello A. Canuto, director of Tulane University's Middle American Research Institute, said. [...]

    "This was a time of great political turmoil in the Maya region and this king felt compelled to allude to a larger cycle of time that happens to end in 2012," Stuart said.

    The discovery is consistent with the only other reference to the 2012 date in ancient Maya inscriptions -- Monument 6 from Tortuguero, Mexico.

    "What this text shows us is that in times of crisis, the ancient Maya used their calendar to promote continuity and stability rather than predict apocalypse," Canuto said.


Apocalypse made in Japan
Japan Times, 9th December 2012
A world-ending cataclysm is common to many mythologies. The Biblical flood narrative is the best known and follows a fairly typical pattern: wrathful deity, mass destruction, surviving remnant — in this case the righteous man Noah and his family. We gather from these tales that life to early humans felt dreadfully precarious — more so, even, than it may feel to us.

Japan's mythological account of the world on the brink of annihilation is in a class by itself. Other stories of its kind are tragic, terrifying. Japan's is comic, even bawdy.

The sun goddess goes into hiding. She has been offended by her brother the storm god, an unruly, malicious spirit who damages his sister's rice fields and fouls the hall where she has been celebrating the festival of first fruits. Outraged, the sun goddess withdraws into a cave. If that's the way the world is, she will decline to shine on it. The "eighty myriads of gods" take counsel. How can they lure her out? One of them, the "Dread Female of Heaven," lights a fire and dances a lewd dance, at which there is such hearty divine laughter that the sun goddess can't resist a peek outside to see what's going on. She is seized and dragged out, and the world is saved. [...]

Buddhism teaches a descent from a golden age of the True Law (Shoho) through a lesser age of the Imitative Law (Zoho) to an apocalyptic age called Mappo — the Latter Days of the Law. "In the Latter Days of the Law," wrote a ninth-century Japanese cleric, "there will be none to keep the Buddha's commandments. If there should be such, they will be as rare as a tiger in a market place." Or as the modern historian G. Cameron Hurst III put it (in an article in "The Cambridge History of Japan," 1990), "Time was conceived of as an inexorable process leading to the final conflagration of all worlds."

Comment:
I think the mythology here retains the memory of days of darkness as part of planetary conflagration/shift, but the Sun is expected to re-appear and this is exactly what Mayan Elders think will happen at some point too... Here, we are also told about the Buddhist version of the Hindu Yugas that describe vast periods of time where it is apparent there is a flux in cosmic consciousness and the consequence is that levels of spirituality measured as human morality varies enormously. All major religions have conserved teaching that in the final stages before a Golden Age arrives, people are extremely corrupt and quite frankly the conflagration is caused by a mismatch when very high quality cosmic consciousness hits the planet and there is some serious sorting out of the wheat from the chaff.... All very Biblical and explains Christian priests using a final "judgment" scenario to terrify parishioners into being good citizens... As I have explained on this blog, the highly encrypted religious text provide details about astronomical events, long astronomical cycles and what we can expect... Today, NASA has already informed us there is virtually nothing on the planet that is not being affected by Spaced Weather.... If you have done enough work and your brain can handle the integration of lots of information, you will know that this all adds up... Sorry, I am not focusing on specific texts but look around on the internet because there are a few who do understand this and are sharing their research.



Richard C. Hoagland Sees Pink Energy Beam that’s “Proved to NOT Be a Hoax”
Exposing Pseudo Astronomy, 3rd December 2012
Photo: A set of tourist’s photographs [of the famed Kulkulkan Pyramid at Chitzen Itza] taken last year (and, after investigation, proved to NOT be a hoax), showed an amazing beam of pink energy emanating from the top of the pyramid during an afternoon thunderstorm, apparently triggered by the electric fields of nearby lightning.

[...] The fact that he’s presenting this image as genuine is one thing. But the further fact that he writes in there, “and, after investigation, proved to NOT be a hoax,” is icing. I mean, seriously? Even the lunar ziggurat looked more genuine than this does.

Some digging shows that this was not taken “last year,” but back in 2009. July 24, 2009, actually — or at least as far as I can tell. In fact, at that link, we can get a higher-resolution version:

Comment:
I am amused by this debunking effort when the debunker does not have a shred of scientific evidence to debunk anything... Quite frankly, the originals were only holiday snaps by ordinary people who probably don't want to be hassled by hordes of 'researchers' bothering them... Well, I know the Russians have the equipment to detect ion beams coming off pyramids because the same energy has been detected coming off some of their 25 pyramids that were built around Moscow from the 1990s onwards... Apparently, scientists have also recently detected an ion beam coming off one of the ancient Bosnian pyramids, see archives. My research suggests that pyramids act like aetheric energy chimneys so they are not always 'smoking'... With a little bit of research, it is easy to ascertain that this photo is not a sign of anything extraordinary these days...

Two Months 'Til Doomsday? Mayan Apocalypse Set for Dec. 21
Live Science, 21st October 2012
If you believe in that sort of thing, humanity can expect a mere two months left of existence before the Mayan apocalypse hits Dec. 21. Today (Oct. 21) starts the two-month countdown toward doomsday, according to an interpretation of the Mayan calendar that has taken hold in some New Age and spiritualist communities online.

Comment:
At least the article suggests it is only SOME "New Age and spiritualist communities online" because I believe the message about Space Weather and energy driven evolutionary change has hit home and taken the heat out of the 2012 21st/23rd December end of the Mayan Calendar marker.... It is increasingly becoming clear that modern Mayan Elders should not have been ignored in preference to poor academic scholarship in an effort to understand the message of ancient astronomer-priests concerning long term astronomical cycles that have a major impact for all life on Earth.



Is John Major Jenkins a New Age COINTELPRO Patsy?
SOTT.net, 5th October 2012

Comment:
It's very New Agey to take drugs and then pretend you are enlightened... This is a very informative article... As many people must realise, it is very difficult to get any attention in the New Age world where crap sells very well and people are sponsored to keep the standards very low.... But quite frankly, the person writing this article should actually try and read Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 by Jenkins, which in parts is undecipherable... I realised that Terrence McKenna thought the Galactic Alignment idea was some kind of childish tripe and I was outraged that McKenna decided to denigrate Mayan beliefs by promoting the idea of a cosmic fairy tale. The following is from one of my 2012 essays:
"It seems that the modern Mayan message of the alignment with the heart of the galaxy has been endowed with ancient pagan/religious overtones such that the ‘Father Sun’ will make a union with the Cosmic Mother and there will be a ‘magical reunion’ and a ‘celestial rebirth’. To remove any doubt that this alignment has been interpreted in such a manner, the following quote from Jenkins will suffice. Jenkins writes:
The Cosmic Mother is the head-point of a trinity involving the birth of a male deity who is also her mate. This Trinity Principle involves the dynamic between mother, father, and child, and shares with many Old World traditions the idea that the Great Mother, as the first principle of Creation must give birth to her mate, First Father, and only then can engender the multiplicity of created beings. On the cosmic level, the astronomical trinity is Galactic Center, solstice sun and humanity.
So, as we are told in the foreward of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, written by the late Terence McKenna, “Over the millennia the Maya observed the drama of the approach of father sun toward the vagina of mother sky”. Therefore, it seems that on the 21st December 2012, many will be celebrating the penetration of the galactic fanny."

What is so incredible is why more people have not been taking Jenkins to task for his contribution to the 2012 hype. Young people have already started commiting suicide due to 2012 fear and that is enough for me to have an issue with Jenkins et al.



John Major Jenkins, The Mayans, 2012 and all that Jazz
SOTT.net, 3rd October 2012
A recent SOTT Focus article "The 2012 Collective Shift & the Secret History of End-Times Prophecies", written by yours truly, received some expected criticism. One such commentator was the renowned John Major Jenkins, himself. I was honored that Mr. Jenkins would consider little ol' me worthy of the hassle, to be honest. But as he has raised some complaints, the SOTT editors suggested that I respond accordingly. It's only right, after all.

John Major Jenkins, for those of you who don't know, is the principle architect of the December 21st, 2012 buzz.

Comment:
There is a fight taking place between John Major Jenkins and Gregory James at SOTT.net. The aspersion that Jenkins is being supported simply because he got the true significance of 2012 WRONG is certainly worthy of some consideration. Whatever, quite frankly, somebody does need to point out again that Jenkins's work is generally scoffed at by scholars. Since, Jenkins has no higher academic qualifications, his work is not up to the required standard and as such, he is considered fair game by academics... I don't agree with everything in this re-buff but it is worth noting that nobody talks about the fact that previous civilisations on this planet took astronomy very seriously and it was the basis of world religions. (Those who have done enough research will know that there has been a tremendous effort to hide these facts because of global catastrophes that can be linked to cosmic influences and causations.) Thus, the reason there is confusion about 2012 is because there is not enough interest in reality or spirituality. Space Weather is now reality and an influx of energy has spiritual as well as mundane consequences, but the impact on Earth is now scientific fact. The reason the likes of Jenkins fail to elucidate what is really going on is because geo-sciences is not their area of expertise. I have a honours degree in physics and geophysics so it was absolutely obvious to me that space weather in the form of trillions of tons of charged particles was going to charge up this planet like a battery. There is a lot of scientific fact and theory that explains what this means, but it is now a fact that some geoscientists can see the citizens of this planet are going to have to cope with far more catastrophes in the future due to the inevitable "energy leap". This is very obvious and has been for a long time..... Jenkins knows that he missed the massive issue of space weather but he does want to take as much credit as possible. Modern Mayan Elders have been ignored because too much of their heritage has been stolen from them and is in the wrong hands. Whatever, we were still told the truth, but not enough people with academic qualifications could actually engage brain and understand what the implications were for 'An Age of Aether', especially now as we have been told by space agencies that Earth's magnetic field is breaking down and cosmic radiation levels are going up.



Is the end of the world really nigh? Authorities reassure Russians over Mayan Armageddon prophecy amid reports of 'unusual behaviour'
Some parts of Russia, which is often said to have a penchant for mystical thinking, appear to have been spooked by the Mayan predictions
The Independent, 3rd December 2012
As a consequence the Russian government's minister for emergency situations has sought to calm panic over the prophecy, saying he had access to "methods of monitoring what is occurring on the planet Earth," and that he could say with confidence that the world was not going to end in December.

He did, however, make clear that Russians are still vulnerable to "blizzards, ice storms, tornadoes, floods, trouble with transportation and food supply, breakdowns in heat, electricity and water supply." [...]

Russia may be the most extreme example of prophecy panic so far, but other countries are also experiencing problems. In Ukraine the Orthodox Church has issued (a not quite reassuring) message that 'doomsday is sure to come', but advised it would be brought about by moral decline and not the: “so-called parade of planets or the end of the Mayan calendar.”

Comment:
Hmmm... mass psychosis in a Chinese prison? The Russians authorities are acutely aware that humans face living on a volatile planet as we undergo the transformation of our world. But, most societies and governments are too entrenched in the current modus operandi to cope with quick change so we can expect lots more major disasters... Btw, you can't expect the Orthodox Church to say anything else but 'doomsday is sure to come' because the message of divine judgement at the end of an Age is deeply embedded into Christian beliefs... Quite frankly, once you understand that humans are subject to divine law whether the majority understand this or not, then the confluence of events associated with a downpour of cosmic energy and the subsequent 'purification' process makes total sense... Simply, it's tough #### for those humans who don't get it...
  • Doomsday French mountain to be closed 'on day the world ends'
    A mountain in the French Pyrenees that doomsday cultists claim will be the only place still standing after the end of the world, slated December 21, is to be closed to visitors to avoid pandemonium on its peak.
    The Telegraph, 3rd December 2012

    New Agers and UFO watchers will be barred access to the flat-top mount outside Bugarach, population 179, during a four-day period around the date they are convinced represents Armageddon.

    Harbingers of doom base their apocalyptic prediction on an ancient Mayan calendar predicting the end of the world will happen on the night of December 21, 2012.

    They believe the Pic de Bugarach is an "alien garage" and that extraterrestrials are quietly waiting in a massive cavity beneath the rock for the world to end, at which point they will leave, taking, it is hoped, a lucky few humans with them.

    To avoid a sudden, massive influx of esoteric outsiders, the mayor has banned gatherings of any sort, and anyone landing in a light aircraft will be arrested.

Scary Rumors about the World Ending in 2012 Are Just Rumors
USA.gov blog, 3rd December 2012
False rumors about the end of the world in 2012 have been commonplace on the Internet for some time. Many of these rumors involve the Mayan calendar ending in 2012 (it won’t), a comet causing catastrophic effects (definitely not), a hidden planet sneaking up and colliding with us (no and no), and many others.

The world will not end on December 21, 2012, or any day in 2012.

Unfortunately, these rumors have many people frightened, especially children. NASA has received thousands of letters concerned about the end of the world. David Morrison, a planetary astronomer and senior scientist for NASA who answers questions from the public about astrobiology, says, “At least a once a week I get a message from a young person ? as young as 11 ? who says they are ill and/or contemplating suicide because of the coming doomsday.”

According to NASA, the old mystery-planet-collision rumor year was 2003, but when 2004 arrived safely, the rumors changed to 2012. So what end-of-the-world year will the rumor mill make up next?

Comment:
The blogosphere are highlighting that this is an unsigned USA.gov blog post but obviously there is concern. It seems that there is genuine concern by government scientists, unlike the lack of empathy amongst vast swathes of the cultic milieu who started off the Mayan 2012 media bandwagon, but somehow the bandwagonistas were derailed and what we have left is mostly stupid 2012 hype for cult leaders and internet trolls... Meanwhile, for the intelligentsia that properly understand the concept of world/astronomical ages, it seems the ancient warnings of what we should expect are being fulfilled by the arrival of space weather and planetary chaos that we must associate with evolutionary change, a certainty that comes with a massive influx of energy...



Survival kits and trips to hell, doomsday hysteria grips Russia
RT News, 1st December 2012
Doomsday hysteria has gripped Russia and some of its neighbors. Travel agencies are selling tours to either heaven or hell and people are stocking up on food and fuel. Officials are publicly denying the apocalypse, hoping to calm the hype.

Those awaiting Doomsday have three weeks to finish their preparations before the date of the much publicized apocalypse allegedly predicted by Mayan calendar, that is going to happen on December 21, 2012.

Thousands of people across Russia keep stocking up their back rooms and balconies with food, fuel and other supplies they might need when disaster strikes. Some are even moving outside of cities because of the widely spread rumors that cities would be impossible to survive in after an apocalypse on Earth.

Comment:
The doom predicted for the 21st December 2012 is only for the really gullible to swallow, I think others realise that there is much more of a long term issue on a geophysically and atmospherically unstable planet... Besides, it is clear that Russian authorities have been preparing for some doom....

Comment:
This is mainly graphics but very interesting... As someone points out in the comments.. “7% of Americans think the Planet of the Apes might come true?” Well, a lot of people have noticed that some humans are becoming more feral and that some animals are acting more human... The book and movie Planet of the Apes (1968) was set in the future AD 3978, on another planet and quite frankly, nobody can say whether the human race as a whole is fit enough to comply with universal directives and continue as the dominant species on this planet in the future...

2012 Mayan Apocalypse Rumors Have Dark Side, NASA Warns
Space.com, 28th November 2012

NASA scientists took time on Wednesday (Nov. 28) to soothe 2012 doomsday fears, warning against the dark side of Mayan apocalypse rumors — frightened children and suicidal teens who truly fear the world may come to an end Dec. 21.

These fears are based on misinterpretations of the Mayan calendar. On the 21st, the date of the winter solstice, a calendar cycle called the 13th b'ak'tun comes to an end. Although Maya scholars agree that the ancient Maya would not have seen this day as apocalyptic, rumors have spread that a cosmic event may end life on Earth on that day.

Thus NASA's involvement. The space agency maintains a 2012 information page debunking popular Mayan apocalypse rumors, such as the idea that a rogue planet will hit Earth on Dec. 21, killing everyone. (In fact, astronomers are quite good at detecting near-Earth objects, and any wandering planet scheduled to collide with Earth in three weeks would be the brightest object in the sky behind the sun and moon by now.) [...]

Real-world consequences

Unfortunately, Morrison said, the fantasy has real-life consequences. As one of NASA's prominent speakers on 2012 doomsday myths, Morrison said, he receives many emails and letters from worried citizens, particularly young people. Some say they can't eat, or are too worried to sleep, Morrison said. Others say they're suicidal.

"While this is a joke to some people and a mystery to others, there is a core of people who are truly concerned," he said.

Comment:
I think the final comment is worthy of some consideration:
Mitzi Adams, a heliophysicist at NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center, agreed. "The greatest threat to Earth in 2012, at the end of this year and in the future, is just from the human race itself," Adams said.
Unfortunately, NASA scientists are speaking up because of the scale of the doomsday hype based on falsehoods being perpetuated by ignorant and uneducated people... The 21st December 2012 is NOT the end of the world....



The 21st century Noah: Chinese man blows £100,000 life savings on building an ark to 'escape the impending Mayan apocalypse'
Daily Mail, 27th November 2012
No, God didn't reveal himself to this Chinese man in a vision. But it seems Lu Zhenghai has been reading about the Mayan prophecy that predicts the end of the world on December 21. He is so afraid of the rumours he has spent his whole life savings trying to build his very own apocalypse-proof 'Noah's Ark'.

The vessel, which has cost him ¥1million (£100,000), measures 21.2m long, 15.5m wide, 5.6m high and displaces about 140 tons of water. Lu, from Urumqi, Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region, admits it's not much to look at, but is confident it will serve its purpose.[..]

In France, the authorities have been forced to ban access to a sacred mountain, rumoured to be a haven from the apocalypse, because hordes of believers have been flocking to the region in recent weeks.

Legend has it that the Pic de Bugarach in south-west France will burst open on that day revealing an alien spaceship which will carry nearby humans to safety. A hundred police and firefighters will also control approaches to the tiny village of the same name at the foot of the mountain, and if too many people turn up, they will block access there, too.

Comment:
To be honest, it does not look like a £100,000 vessel.... maybe, the Daily Mail are exaggerating... I think the authorities are right to stop the crazies camping out at Pic de Bugarach, see previous reports in the archives...



Ready for Apocalypse? Insurance companies refuse to cover Armageddon
RT News, 22nd November 2012
Latvian insurers have rejected the request to insure against “breaking the space-time continuum” and the coming of a fictional deity Cthulhu as the “damage from the end of the world is difficult to evaluate”.

With one month to go before the end of the world according to Mayan calendar cycle, an unusual request came from organizers of a festival to a Latvian insurance agency, reports Apollo.lv. The client also wanted to insure against abduction by aliens and breaking the space-time continuum that could take festival goers into parallel worlds.

The Russian market is also not ready to offer such a product, the Vice President of Russian insurer Ingosstrakh Ilya Solomatin told newsru.com.

"You can ask the Russian insurance company to insure the risk from the so-called end of the world. The Question is, if the end of the world comes, who will pay you, and what would you need it for?" he says.

Comment:
Well, I am now predicting embarrassment amongst prominent 2012ers as it becomes clear that there was a miserable failure to integrate the ancient warnings with modern science... As Earth's external magnetic field deteriorates and the impact of Space Weather worsens, Earth's geomagnetic environment is expected to become very unstable and mega disasters and just disasters will increase.... This is just a domino effect... The science is available for those who are interested in what life is going to be like on this planet as we adjust to a new level of chaos that is a basic requirement for evolutionary change for ANY energetic system...
  • 'End of capitalism': Bolivia to expel Coca-Cola in wake of 2012 Mayan 'apocalypse'
    RT News, 1st August 2012
    In a symbolic rejection of US capitalism, Bolivia announced it will expel the Coca-Cola Company from the country at the end of the Mayan calendar. This will mark the end of capitalism and usher in a new era of equality, the Bolivian govt says.

    “December 21 of 2012 will be the end of egoism and division. December 21 should be the end of Coca-Cola,” Bolivian foreign minister David Choquehuanca decreed, with bombast worthy of a viral marketing campaign. The coming ‘end’ of the Mayan lunar calendar on December 21 of this year has sparked widespread doomsaying of an impending apocalypse. But Choquehuanca argued differently, claiming it will be the end of days for capitalism, not the planet.

    “The planets will align for the first time in 26,000 years and this is the end of capitalism and the beginning of communitariani sm,” said Choquehuanca as quoted by Venezuelan newspaper El Periodiquito.

    The minister encouraged the people of Bolivia to drink Mocochinche, a peach-flavored soft drink, as an alternative to Coca-Cola. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez followed suit, encouraging his country to ditch the American beverage for fruit juice produced in Venezuela.

    Comment:
    LOL... I am wondering if getting rid of the Coca-Cola Company counts towards evolutionary change... but it's certainly not devolutionary....


Apocalypse Then? Six False Prophecies of the End Times
Catholic Exchange, 9th November 2012
In case you haven’t heard, the world is supposed to end at midnight on December 21—this year. At least, that’s according to some popularized interpretations of what the Mayans said. But predictions of the end times are hardly a new or unusual thing. For Christians, prophecies of an imminent apocalypse are just about as old as the Church itself. Those predicting the end were an eclectic lot, with wild ideas and strange teachings. They include an antipope, a saint who rode the devil like a donkey, and cultish charismatics who dressed like harlots. Some were inspired by their false interpretations of the fantastic visions in the Book of Revelation, calling to mind G. K. Chesterton’s remark that [t]hough St. John the Evangelist saw many strange monsters in his vision, he saw no creature so wild as one of his own commentators.

Here are just a few of the greatest—and ultimately false—predictions of the apocalypse from Church history:

Comment:
We need to realise that there is a huge amount of Christain literature concerning The End of an Age or End Times. Eschatology is the biggest study of Christian theologians for a very good reason.. In ages past, the astronomer-priests retained highly coded astronomical knowledge from previous high civilisations on this planet and tried carefully to keep accurate astronomical calendars... This worked quite well until the modern era when the Catholic Church became extremely corrupt and decimated their own calendars to the point where they could not even work out what century they were living in.... Today, there are some very interesting anomalies that suggest this was never properly fixed and why I believe there is so much envy concerning Mayan Calendars.... Question: Why would the American Founding Fathers copy Aztec calendars and place them in Washington DC unless it was important? See: 2012: The American Founding Fathers Knew, January 2012. Anyway, the astronomer-priests of old know massive evolutionary shifts driven by cosmic energy occur on a cyclical basis, but this was totally beyond the capabilities of the ignorant masses who were happy with stupid stories, not so different to the stupidity that exists today amongst the ignorant masses... The astronomer-priests fully expected that the next major shift would be the dominance of the Holy Spirit or the Mayan 'Age of Aether'. Hence, the romantic and religious looked forward to ruling the roost.... Obviously, being blasted by space weather was not exactly what the likes of Joachim of Fiore in the 12th Century were expecting... but today, we have a huge amount of scientific knowledge that can help us understand the implications of cosmic energies frying the planet and the human energy field... Yes, the morphogenetic fields that control all forms of life on this planet are being affected and they are either capable of adapting or they are not.... it's that simply... Today, the modern astronomer-priests know that Christ or crystalline energy is now flooding our solar system. The Stardust Mission collected interstellar dust between February and May 2000, and again between August and December 2002, while passing through a stream of dust that flows into our solar system from interstellar space. For the ignorant naysayers, please consider why NASA would send a probe to the edge of our solar system to collect bits of interstellar dust and then deliver the contents back on Earth simply to have a look at what is leaking in? Again, why have astronauts been performing plasma crystal experiments for 10 years onboard the International Space Station (ISS), making the plasma crystal facilities the most used scientific experiments onboard the ISS? Well, the wealth of evidence that Space Weather is delivering the promised Apocalypse is overwhelming for those who can integrate a plethora of scientific fields, metaphysics and ancient knowledge.



Maya demand an end to doomsday myth
France 24 News, 25th October 2012
AFP - Guatemala's Mayan people accused the government and tour groups on Wednesday of perpetuating the myth that their calendar foresees the imminent end of the world for monetary gain.

"We are speaking out against deceit, lies and twisting of the truth, and turning us into folklore-for-profit. They are not telling the truth about time cycles," charged Felipe Gomez, leader of the Maya alliance Oxlaljuj Ajpop. Several films and documentaries have promoted the idea that the ancient Mayan calendar predicts that doomsday is less than two months away, on December 21, 2012.

The Culture Ministry is hosting a massive event in Guatemala City -- which as many as 90,000 people are expected to attend -- just in case the world actually does end, while tour groups are promoting doomsday-themed getaways. Maya leader Gomez urged the Tourism Institute to rethink the doomsday celebration, which he criticized as a "show" that was disrespectful to Mayan culture. [...] Gomez's group issued a statement saying that the new Maya time cycle simply "means there will be big changes on the personal, family and community level, so that there is harmony and balance between mankind and nature."

Comment:
It's called the government and tour groups cashing in.... Meanwhile, the majority on this planet are oblivious to the real significance of why elite astronomer-priests from previous high civilisations on this planet were vigilant watching the heavens and encoding their astronomical and esoteric knowledge for future generations and those with eyes to see... Thus when genuine modern Mayan Elders try to tell the world the next major cycle will be the Age of Ether, there is an almost total blank because not so many understand even basics about a divine cosmos. Today, those with eyes to see know that space weather has become the cause of a planetary emergency... due to the impact on our modern technological infrastructure and of course, the induced geophysical and climate/atmospheric changes etc.



The real Mayan prophecies investigated – The Chilam Balam books
The Watchers, 20th October 2012
Though there is only the one known engraving of a prediction connected to the end of the 13th Bak’tun (monument 6 Tortuguero) it is often stated, wrongly, that there is only this one place for any possible year 2012 prophecy. There is in fact more prophetic material available from the Mayan sources known as the Chilam Balam books.

These books were made up of prophecies attached to the Short Count calendar, a count of Tun’s rather than Bak’tun’s. These books were compiled after the Spanish invasion and are written in Mayan but using the Spanish alphabet. They contain a wide range of subjects that includes myths, religion, culture and predictions, allegedly they stem from a great ancient Chilam Balam or Jaguar Priest. Due to the fact the books are not actually ancient themselves we do have to concede some of the details may be tainted, however it has been noted that some of the material in these books does doubtless come from pre-conquest sources, and in some cases can seemingly only apply to the end of the 13th Bak’tun cycle.

Comment:
This is Part II and the link for Part I “The real Mayan prophecies investigated – Monument 6 Tortuguero”is also provided. I would say that an article outlining and doing some analysis (however speculative) on some of the Mayan text that has been passed down to us is quite rare... as opposed to the drivel of speculation that has fueled the 2012 catastrophe mindset. I would say that we are not told about the quality of the translation used here or given any other versions but I know they exist. Whatever, I am reminded again of the great divide of the highly intelligent astronomer-priests and the ignorant rabble who love fairy tales.... I can thank Sir William Drummond for his deep insights that only confirm the wealth of information that suggests the historical existence of a two-tier system of religious belief - one for the initiates and another for the rest. I wrote the following back in June 2009,
"....Sir William Drummond who wrote Oedipus Judaicus printed in 1811 for private circulation and again 1866 but only properly published in 1996. This is one of the most valuable books in my possession and religious scholars must all now agree with at least some of his conclusions. Drummond suggests that the writers of the Old Testament; ‘follow the example of all the East, in blending in their narratives real with fictitious events and involving important lessons to mankind whether in morals, or in science, under the guise of recorded fact.’ Drummond sought to prove that there was an alternative way to interpret the Bible using the science of comparative linguistics and quite frankly his conclusions are far more satisfying to reasonable and enquiring minds."
I believe exactly the same approach needs to be taken with Mayan texts and at least the author has touched on some relevant points of interpretation associated with Mayan astronomer-priests and their beliefs in a link between climate change and spiritual evolution for a few that are ready. Personally, I just hope with all the effort I and others have made, there will be a few more truth seekers enlightened as they refuse to be considered as part of the ignorant rabble who can be so easily entertained by stories. For those actually interested in the workings of a divine universe, as it pertains to energy driven evolutionary change, we are living in a time of the fulfillment of prophecy. More technically, the universe seems to operate on some kind of strict cosmic 'housekeeping' function and cycle. I wrote an essay for Paradigm Shift magatine published in print in the United Kingdom (issue 42. May - July 2009) called Watch Out! Planet Under Reconstruction! That was a long time before the recent reports of tectonic plates cracking up...



Interview with John Major Jenkins on Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 (Video + Slideshow)
Examiner, 19th September 2012
1. What are your thoughts on David Stuart’s teams recent discovery of a new 2012 text as well as his academic interpretation? [...]

MJ: David Stuart is a brilliant epigrapher who has made significant breakthroughs in deciphering the Maya hieroglyphic writing. I’ve been reading his work for decades. I noticed that he, along with his colleague Stephen Houston, tend to overlook astronomy as an aid to their decipherment. For example, when dates are mentioned one can look up the astronomy occurring on that date, and this should factor into the challenging work of decipherment.

Comment:
It's interesting that Jenkins is pointing out that scholars are still trying to avoid the concept that the ancient Maya were brilliant astronomers. Those who don't agree, are only just ignoring or hiding the evidence. Historical evidence & archaeo-astronomy tells us that astronomer-priests incorporated astronomical concepts into their myth-making for the general populace, exactly the same as all the other major religions have done over millennia. Some of Jenkins's ideas are flat out wrong, but he is fortunate that scholars have decided to reveal the truth that they knew the 2012 date was important. In his favour, Jenkins carried the torch about the need to pay attention to ancient Mayan beliefs. Now, whether people care or not, 2012 is the official date marker for the start of a major astronomical change that is now generating evolutionary change on Earth. There is now no doubt for those who understand some science and metaphysics, what modern Mayan Elders call the Age of Aether is the new phenomenon of Space Weather that is now a major cause for concern.



Apocalypse Not: Here’s Why You Shouldn’t Worry About End Times
Wired Science, 17th August 2012
This is the question posed by the website 2012apocalypse.net. “super volcanos? pestilence and disease? asteroids? comets? antichrist? global warming? nuclear war?” the site’s authors are impressively open-minded about the cause of the catastrophe that is coming at 11:11 pm on december 21 this year. but they have no doubt it will happen. after all, not only does the Mayan Long Count calendar end that day, but “the sun will be aligned with the center of the Milky Way for the first time in about 26,000 years.”

Case closed: Sell your possessions and live for today.

Comment:
Hmmmm.... Even the mainstream knows that we are in the 'End Times', but unfortunately, the message has been mutilated by those who wish to feed off the fears of others.... Basically, there are those who can only think in black and white terms i.e. a cause of uncertainty is either good or bad. Then there are a few who are more evolved who can make a decent appraisal of any situation and then come up with some kind of mindset that involves the concept of change and how to deal with change. However, even that mindset is subject to being used by those with a predatory nature who aim to take advantage. Regardless, the world is waking up to space weather and we can ignore those goaded by primal and apocalyptic thinking and instead, focus on the real issues. By the way, I have stated many times that apocalypse has a totally different original meaning, see archives.



Mysterious Lotuses Appear in Chinese River - NTDTV
YouTube, 26th July 2012
In traditional Chinese culture, lotus flowers are symbols for purity. They grow out of muddy waters yet maintain their beauty. But very rarely do we see this kind of lotus flower.

In Sichuan province, these lotus flower patterns began appearing in a river on July 13th. They seem to grow out of nowhere, but every few minutes, they form these distinct lotus flower shapes -- complete with white petals. The remarkable phenomena happened again six days later.

Interestingly enough, this river is called Lotus River, and the town -- you guessed it, Lotus County. Apparently the river was known for producing these lotus flowers in ancient times.

The incredible "lotus flowers" have baffled locals. Some say they're simply oil patches in the water, others say it's nothing short of a miracle.

Comment:
The river was known for producing these lotus flowers in ancient times.... how magical! Here is another longer YouTube video [7:14], where people are pretty excited, here. I found the following explanation regarding the lotus flower as a comment on YouTube:
456inthemix

In Buddhism the lotus flower symbolizes the purity of spirit. Especially of the open lotus is the symbol? of the purity of origin. From the mud of the lake rises the lotus flower on its pristine water level and describes the harmonious development of the mind.

The white lotus is Pundarika and is associated to spiritual perfection and clarity of mind (mental purity). Both the White Tara and Manjushri, of the Bodhisattva are displayed with of the Utpala.
To understand these lotus patterns appearing on the Lotus river that do look like very strange 'oil slicks' (we have to explain how a rainbow sheen appears in the centre of the lotus flower pattern), thus we need to understand some chemistry and dispersion patterns. My only knowledge on this matter is related to the existence of natural patterns in nature that can be reproduced by simple computer code i.e. Turing patterns that are related to phosphenes, (light codes). But then there are other scientific explanations that require us to look at like the incredible 'memory of water' research that has caused such consternation amongst scientists. There is even a Nobel prize winner,(Luc Montagnier, who shared the Nobel prize for medicine in 2008 for his part in establishing that HIV causes AIDS), who is loudly proclaiming that DNA can send 'spooky' electromagnetic imprints of itself into distant cells and fluids. Maybe, there is some kind of memory in the water and in the mud (or even a strange oil coming up from the bottom of the the river), but the water/mud/oil has to be embuded with a certain type of 'divine' energy first before the dispersion patterns can appear and the energy is being delivered right now to the planet by space weather. I am even wondering whether this is an appearance of a morphogenetic template for the lotus flower.... (For those interested in how energy arrives into our dimension or reality, then I personally like the theory of Multi-Dimensional Reality.) Because the lotus flowers are not all perfect, it does seem that there are opposing forces appearing in the river, one that indicates a level of beauty and perfection and the opposite, energies that represent the imperfection and pollution of the river. Nobody will argue that this is a mystery, but at this stage, I don't believe conventional science has all the answers. Anyway, as delighted as I am by finding this piece of extremely interesting news it also makes me sad.... I have tried my best to explain and document that the current cosmic onslaught is about the delivery of energy that will transform our world. After 30 years of seeking truth and trying to understand my reality, it just amazes me that ancient texts tell us that Paradise is set to return on this planet, but few seem to appreciate the magnitude of what this all means as the signs and wonders start stacking up. Space scientists are in a state of shock because of the dramatic changes that have happened to the cosmic environment of Earth and our solar system in only a few decades, a blink of the eye in cosmic terms..... I realise that the majority of people are simply not capable of understanding the changes and this is why information was retained by the astronomer-priests in ancient times for the elite only, but today, there are supposed to be more educated people around.... Whatever, very few are interested in the workings of a divine universe due to high levels of ignorance and narcissism, but at least after all my searching I can appreciate the vast scale of the transformation of world and I realise that we are headed back to Paradise, but I wonder who else is even interested.



Maya archaeologists unearth new 2012 monument
PhysOrg.com News, 28th June 2012
(Phys.org) -- Archaeologists working at the site of La Corona in Guatemala have discovered a 1,300 year-old year-old Maya text that provides only the second known reference to the so-called “end date” for the Maya calendar on December 21, 2012. The discovery, one of the most significant hieroglyphic find in decades, was announced today at the National Palace in Guatemala.

[...] Rather than prophesy, the 2012 reference served to place this king’s troubled reign and accomplishments into a larger cosmological framework. “This was a time of great political turmoil in the Maya region and this king felt compelled to allude to a larger cycle of time that happens to end in 2012,” says Stuart. This evidence is consistent with the only other reference to the 2012 date in ancient Maya inscriptions—Monument 6 from Tortuguero, Mexico. “What this text shows us is that in times of crisis, the ancient Maya used their calendar to promote continuity and stability rather than predict apocalypse,” says Canuto.

There has been a steady drip drip of information from Mayan scholars revealing what they know about 2012....

Was Psychedelic Guru Terence McKenna Goofing About 2012 Prophecy?
Scientific American, 6th June 2012
Rational Scientific American readers surely scoff at claims—based on ancient Mayan calendars and other esoterica—that life as we know it will end this December, especially now that NASA experts have “crushed” the prophecy. But many folks out there are reportedly worried. Perhaps I can allay their anxieties by relating my encounter with a prominent popularizer of the 2012-doomsday meme, psychedelic guru Terence McKenna.

In his books and lectures, McKenna extolled psychedelic drugs as a spiritual path superior to that of any mainstream religion. His book The Food of the Gods (Bantam 1992) was a rigorous argument—complete with footnotes and bibliography

Comment:
There are quite a few that think "psychedelic drugs as a spiritual path superior to that of any mainstream religion", but I am skeptical of white plastic shamans.... but then again, I have lots of skepticism these days after my experiences with some narcissists in the Cultic Milieu.... Generally, I am quite mortified by the lack of understanding concerning space weather and the transformation of our whole solar system and the consequences of virtually everything on the planet being affected according to NASA.... The rapid transformation of our reality is directly related to the change in the properties of space-time, I think the main proof can be found in astronomical observations and data..... In fact, there are lots of changes predicted by a whole spectrum of wisdom seeking groups but many today, who claim to be spiritual don't understand the workings of a spiritual universe, so they are left bewildered...

"McKenna was less a scientist or even philosopher than a performance artist or jester, and I mean that as a compliment." I have watched a few of his videos and Mr Entertainment is the impression I got too.... I have investigated his Timewave Zero but I can only be totally convinced if there was a link to changing energetic flux but so far nobody has been able to prove this... The Timewave Zero end-date was not originally 2012 either, it was changed later to fit in with the 2012 hype... Despite his intellect, McKenna failed to see there is not much difference between New Agers who claim to channel off planet entities and his boasting of channelling a mushroom... What's more, McKenna has far less credibility these days than some New Agers who can at least cite the existence of orbs --which have been scientifically proven to exist -- especially when some of these orbs appear to be far more intelligent than most humans... Mckenna stated: “My function is largely pedagogical...." hmmm.... I think he means entertaining the spiritual children.... Did he really say this about 21st December 2012?
The event will be “some enormously reality-rearranging thing.” Scientists will invent a truly intelligent computer, or a time-travel machine. Perhaps we will be visited by an alien spaceship, or an asteroid. “I don’t know if it’s built into the laws of spacetime, or it’s generated out of human inventiveness, or whether it’s a mile and a half wide and arrives unexpectedly in the center of North America.”
This is really poor... It would have helped if McKenna had known the original meaning of The Apocalypse i.e. the disclosure of something hidden from the majority of mankind or the lifting of the veil.... Yes, that is the ability to see more of the previously invisible spectrum of plasma entities that make up Earth's shadow biosphere...

I do believe that McKenna and his supporters are partly to blame for igniting 2012 doomsday beliefs and the result today that young people are vowing to commit suicide rather than seeing the end of the world.... It is sickening to me that McKenna and friends failed to pay attention to modern Mayan Elders who predicted the arrival of ether or space (because they understand their own calendars better than anyone else). Thus, McKenna and friends failed to realise that our world was in transition to a high energy state due to the new phenomenon of space weather that has been accelerating noticeably since the Great Magnetic Storm in 1989... Presumably, the failure was due to the requirement for some integration of science and metaphysics, hard work that few are prepared to do... I think the worse thing about McKenna was that too many people took him too seriously... Since my book was published I have being decoding and integrating more of the preserved ancient astronomical knowledge with recent scientific discoveries... I get results because I have done some serious work laying a proper foundation of understanding, something that McKenna failed to do. I think the people over at the Cult Education Forum will have lots to say about guru-types playing "the holy fool" and being "the crazy wisdom sage" type, but being a fake might be a better summary. As I have stated before, people seem to love the fakes but if you are genuine and serious then it is an uphill battle....



Girl, 16, kills herself after researching doomsday disasters and becoming convinced the world was about to end
Daily Mail, 18th May 2012
* Isabel Taylor, 16, thought civilisation would end in 2012 after researching nuclear meltdowns

A teenager hanged herself after becoming convinced the world would end in 2012 after researching doomsday scenarios on the internet, an inquest heard.

Schoolgirl Isabel Taylor, 16, turned to Buddhism after becoming fed up with the 'complications and injustice' of the modern world.

But while searching for answers she began researching doomsday scenarios - becoming convinced a nuclear reactor meltdown would end civilisation in the coming months.

Comment:
The whole 2012 phenomenon started off in the metaphysical community and the fire was fanned by lots of half-truths and some outright lies with many jumping on the bandwagon writing books, setting up websites and even a Hollywood movie to make money off peoples' fear. Yes, knowledge has been retained by many different groups, but the main thrust of the 2012 phenomena was ignited by people trying to interpret Mayan Calendars who had NEVER been taught what they mean by genuine Mayan Elders who consider their calendars sacred. Read Carlos Barrios's book The Book of Destiny to see what this Mayan Elder had to say about people even trying to create their own pseudo-Mayan calendars. So, when genuine Mayan Elders point out that some of the relevant calendars point to the start of a completely new dispensation or New Age dominated by ether or space, this is completely ignored. Why? Because too many people are ignorant of what 17 of 20 calendars represent since nobody outside of Mayan culture has been taught how to interpret them. So despite the huge amount of evidence that something is happening, to maintain some power, Mayan "researchers" mostly with no qualifications, decided to completely ignore the facts that modern Mayan Elders got some basics absolutely correct. Why? The fact that New Ages are directly linked to astronomical cycles and varying cosmic energies was lost on people who are not spiritually gifted and don't understand enough basic science. There is no argument about the fact that the solar system is being flooded with energy and the world is facing the new challenge of a new phenomena called Space Weather. This has now reached the point where some scientists are calling this SPACE CLIMATE CHANGE. Instead of space being a cold dark, empty void, we now have new NASA animations of hurricanes in space and our modern technological world is facing a major new challenge but we are also facing energy driven evolutionary change too.... It seems to me the name of the game is to understand the predicted changes and adapt rather than frightening the children, some of who are now committing suicide. I have been on my own pointing out the obvious since I wrote and self-published my book Tuning the Diamonds: Electromagnetism & Spiritual Evolution in 2006, but too many people prefer to maintain their ignorance. Fortunately, there are a few others who do understand some of the implications of this transition and are trying to make a difference so that humanity can survive.



Does Mayan photo show a sign from gods ... or iPhone glitch?
MSNBC News, 28th February 2012
When Hector Siliezar visited the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza with his wife and kids in 2009, he snapped three iPhone photos of El Castillo, a pyramid that once served as a sacred temple to the Mayan god Kukulkan. A thunderstorm was brewing near the temple, and Siliezar was trying to capture lightning crackling dramatically over the ruins.

In the first two images, dark clouds loom above the pyramid, but nothing is amiss. However, in the third photo, a powerful beam of light appears to shoot up from the pyramid toward the heavens, and a thunderbolt flashes in the background.

Comment:
Hmmm.... It's interesting that the mainstream are bothering to come up with weak excuses for the appearance of scalar energies and the real purpose of pyramids to balance incoming and outgoing cosmic and terrestrial energies. I note the article here does not care to mention that enlightened Russians have built massive pyramids around Moscow to do this same energy balancing. The Russians know there has been an energy build up around our solar system since the 1960s, and that this energy has been leaking into our solar system and affecting all the planets... On Earth, nobody is disputing the fact there is an energy imbalance, but it is not causing global warming, instead, we are seeing an awful lot of volcanoes erupting and earthquakes instead etc... So, according to Russian scientists, pyramids can help deal with Apocalypse related temporary energy imbalances. Hence, that is why Russians have been building pyramids since 1989 and so they must be a little bit more prepared. We can also conclude that there is at least one spiritually intelligent nation on the planet... Meanwhile, various countries around the world are preparing with massive earthquake drills, but surely, building pyramids would have been a better option? Regardless, the mainstream are letting it be known that some ancient pyramids are still operational and able to balance aetheric energies. If nothing else, that is good news...

    Pyramids in Bosnia - Semir Osmanagic
    YouTube, Jan 15, 2008
    Failure is not an option.... Dr Sam Semir Osmanagic is a brave man! Anyway he wants people to know that he believes there were more advanced civilisations on Earth that built these pyramids. His views are highly controversial because he knows that the truth has been suppressed. The question is why.... Anyway, I believe that pyramids can balance aetheric energies in the environment. That is why the Russians have built them around Moscow with the hope of stopping the most devastating earthquakes and I believe the Russians are going to have the last laugh. They are not spiritually naive encouraging crap like the Law of Attraction when the world is facing a massive spiritual crisis of being engulfed in highly charged aetheric energies. Sometimes the ignorance and stupidity boggles the mind....

2012: Fear No Supernova
Science Daily, 28th December 2011
ScienceDaily (Dec. 28, 2011) — Given the incredible amounts of energy in a supernova explosion -- as much as the sun creates during its entire lifetime -- another erroneous doomsday theory is that such an explosion could happen in 2012 and harm life on Earth. However, given the vastness of space and the long times between supernovae, astronomers can say with certainty that there is no threatening star close enough to hurt Earth.

Comment:
I am pleased that scientists are helping to deal with the 2012 hype but I still think that people should understand that 2012 is about the start of a major new era on Earth dominated by space weather. Yes, a supernova explosion is unlikely to happen in our galaxy in 2012 but the heliosphere is shrinking around our own solar system. This is something that has had very little media attention but there is a corresponding influx of new cosmic energy and a continued increase in cosmic rays that will cause DNA mutations and thus evolutionary change on this planet. That is not hype that is reality. What is interesting, is the intelligent sounding conspiracy theorists who I think are being paid to gain people's trust and then debunking somethings that should not be debunked and then hyping up other stuff that is pure garbage like all those who were heavily promoting Comet Elenin. What a dud that was. Absolutely no scientific justification, but people believed whatever scraps of info these people were throwing into the internet maelstrom of hype.



NASA Nixes Doomsday Fears About the "Dark Rift" --Earth's Alignment With Milky Way's Supermassive Black Hole on the Winter Solstice
Daily Galaxy, 22nd December 2011
One of the most bizarre theories about 2012 is the widespread notion that a cosmic alignment of the sun, Earth, and the center of our galaxy, which is obscured by the Dark Rift, on the winter solstice could for some unknown reason lead to planetary destruction. [...]

The claim for a 2012 doomsday links these two pieces of astronomical fact with a third -- the position of the sun near the galactic center on Dec. 21, the winter solstice for the Northern Hemisphere -- to produce something that makes no astronomical sense at all.

The coincidence of the solstice with the sun entering the Dark Rift somehow portending disaster or the mistaken notion that the sun and Earth becoming aligned with the black hole in the galactic center creates some kind of massive gravitational pull on Earth.

The solstice itself does not correlate to any movements of the stars or anything in the universe beyond Earth. It just happens to be the day that Earth's North Pole is tipped farthest from the sun.Second, Earth is not within range of strong gravitational effects from the black hole at the center of the galaxy since gravitational effects decrease exponentially the farther away one gets. Earth is 93 million miles from the sun and 165 quadrillion miles from the Milky Way's black hole.

Comment:
Actually, this article has a few interesting facts. Well, anthropologists now agree that the 2012 date does mark the end of a major Mayan calendar based cycle. What's more, modern Mayan Elders do seem to be vindicated by their stance that we are entering a new era dominated by the ether or space, based on the massive escalation of space weather. Remarkably, even NASA scientists have agreed on that too. Yet, it's interesting that after all the ridiculous bad astronomy based speculation, it seems that nobody (that I am aware of) predicted the galactic centre was going to light up... Whatever, it is a fitting sign to mark the next 5,125 years of life on this planet being dominated by space weather.

2012: Shadow of the Dark Rift
PhysOrg.com, 22nd December 2011
"(PhysOrg.com) -- One of the most bizarre theories about 2012 has built up with very little attention to facts. This idea holds that a cosmic alignment of the sun, Earth, the center of our galaxy -- or perhaps the galaxy's thick dust clouds -- on the winter solstice could for some unknown reason lead to destruction. Such alignments can occur but these are a regular occurrence and can cause no harm (and, indeed, will not even be at its closest alignment during the 2012 solstice.)"



Tom Horn - Hour 1 - Apollyon Rising 2012
Red Ice Radio, 20th December 2011
Tom Horn is an author, researcher and co-host of the radio show Raiders Live! News Talk Radio. Raiders News Update reports have been referred to by writers of the L.A. Times Syndicate, MSNBC, Christianity Today, World Net Daily, White House Correspondents and dozens of newsmagazines and press agencies around the globe. Tom will discuss his book Apollyon Rising. [...]. He'll explain how 2012 connects to an ancient cosmic conspiracy. 2012 is an important year not only to the founders of America but for various cultures on the planet.

Comment:
I don't listen to many Red Ice interviews but I was interested that someone was talking about the The Return of the Gods which I believe is related to the orb/UFO/UAP phenonenon. Well, I was really put off by the Red Ice interview description and the artwork, but the first part of this interview is about old prophecies that relate to 2012 from someone who claims to have a Christian perspective and I was absolutely fascinated. A 2012 researcher talking about spiritual evolution of humanity, I can tell you this now, there are not that many about.... I will just say that he keeps mentioning the indigenous prophecies relating to the arrrival dragons but if you go over to thunderbolts.info they say all the talk of dragons is about Birkeland currents and plasma phenomenon and I agree. When we get geomagnetic storms, the dragons appear swirling around the poles of the planet. We have a new permanent dragon that swirls around the equator that is called the Equatorial Electrojet and I believe there is plenty of evidence that ancient astronomer priests used this certain distinct imagery to make their teachings less obvious to outsiders. We are back to preserving knowledge for Initiates and keeping everybody else guessing. Hence, I cracked this in my book about the real significancce of the Egyptian god Apep or the Greek version Apophis. Read my interpretation in my book, it makes perfect sense. One more thing. I think many researchers have failed to comprehend that the Catholic Church is terrified of the return of 'Christ' or crystalline energy because it is a spiritual energy that is set to annihilate them. Even in this interview, the emphasis from old prophecies is on astronomical cycles and the arrival of New Energy. It is borderline physical energy, not woo-woo stuff. Preparing for The Anti-Christ is taking measures that the Catholic Church think will protect their position and power on this planet. The Catholic hierarchy are clearly not exactly pure vessels, they are evil monsters only interested in power, look at the historical evidence... Hour 1 is free, Hour II requires a subscription.

Update I have just listened to hour 2.... I am grateful to Tom Horn for his basic [Great Seal] research but I don't completely agree with his interpretation. Whatever, talk about information being left right in the open for those with real (scientific/metaphysical/esoteric) knowledge to understand... Think of this as certain researchers who can focus in on the truth, but the telescopic lens needs slight adjustment before the Big Picture comes into proper focus. This is what we have here... Well, I am grateful, it's enough for me, I get it. I now have more confirmation of why I had to spend the last 7 years busting a gut to teach people about the significance of space weather and the arrival of the orbs/uaps.

Update 2 Sigh.... It is so frustrating listening to this interview when Tom Horn flip flops between the original astronomically based ancient knowledge and then reverts to lame explanations.... The dragons (geomagnetic storm currents) are delivering the "Christ" or crystalline Energy and this will cause the emergence of a new humanity due to energy driven evolutionary change (dna upgrades, brains being re-wired). This is Celestial Epigenetics. Has Tom Horn heard about Synaesthesia? This 'Christ' energy has been noticeably hitting humans for the last few decades and those that were ready have already started to evolve, but we are now starting to see massive volume increases of cosmic energy (weak magnetosphere, ionosphere collapsed) and this means more people who are ready will start to evolve... Then he briefly mentions the Watchers and tries to blame them for messed up electrodynamic templates... God give me strength.... Think cats with wings, humans and animals with two heads, the increase in strange mutations and dna abnormalities and the dramatic increase in white (not albino) animals and creatures, the electromagnetic chaos and biological misshaps are already starting to happen... I don't talk much about devolution but modern Mayan Elders have already casually mentioned that in the past there has been some massive devolution on this planet. So, according to the Maya, the monkeys used to be humans, how tough is that? If you can't cope with the New Energy then that will be just too bad... The metaphysical community were warned but many of the 'love and light' brigade volunteered to switch off their brains so this is way beyond many of them... In fact, the irony is the high levels of narcissism but low levels of spiritual intelligence... The other thing that is annoying me is researchers who cherry pick what the indigenous cultures have to say. They have already told us the UFOs are the gods... That is what the Return of the Ancestors is all about... Do some scientific research and check out how scientists think life started out on this planet... The frustration.... Too many humans are just too stupid.... I could go on but I have other things to do... /rant over

Update 3 I have started reading the online version of Tom Horn's book Apollyon Rising as priority... As you would expect, the book gives a 'Christian' perspective of 'pagan' Freemasons (pot calling the kettle black) and then ties this into why these pagans will incorporate Aztec and Mayan astronomical knowledge into the heart of Washington DC and the great seal of the United States of America. If you are unfamiliar with this kind of background information you will find this hard going. However, I have been reading this kind of info for many years and I am wondering whether Tom Horn appreciates that Freemasonry is a religion based on astronomy, exacly the same as the Catholic Church. I am sure he must have realised that these two groups are actually power sharing.... Whatever, they both have a strict adherence to preserving astronomical knowledge but this is then combined with running 'purple' [Spiral Dynamics] culty organisations designed to control people. He tells us that Freemasons are requested to lie to protect their knowledge of symbols etc and then quotes the same person who says they are primarily liars when it comes to revealing details about Freemasonry. He is continually quoting sources whom are disguising their beliefs so his interpretation does not make sense unless you see the astronomical implications and that is why Tom Horn is forced to re-hash opinions that are wrong. The stuff about the oracle Sibyl just makes me laugh, talk about deep purple.... I don't have time to explain.... A lot of the explanations are simply wrong, my website is a lot more informative about what is really happening but I have stayed away from integrating this with ancient knowledge. To get a good perspective, Freemasons should be regarded as cult members, who possess a little bit of truth mixed in with some big lies. The key to the truth is astronomy and the science of a spiritual universe. Yes, I wonder if Tom Horn appreciates why the New World Order has to blot out the Sun by geoengineering if they are such great pagans who love their Sun god? The solutions to what 2012 is all about is never going to come without a radical shift in perspective

Update 4 I am quite astounded that Tom Horn is agreeing with an author who knows there was a "Gospel in the stars", but that this gospel was "demonized and converted into astrology after the fall of man, originally recorded the Gospel of God." Horn writes: "If the primary assumption of this view is correct—that an original revelation was corrupted after the fall of man and subsequently degenerated into mythologies of the pagan gods—one should be able to find numerous examples of such corruption from as far back as the beginning of history and within various civilizations around the world." I have not finished reading yet, but there seems to be a big assumption here that is deliberately vague to cover a wide variety of scenarios. I think the main issue is glossing over the discovery of ancient texts with a preponderance of biblical sounding stories that imply the Bible was generated by plagiarising older sources and whitewashing astrological references in the bible by saying they were originally some kind of 'divine' revelation.... wow... I suppose it is too much to expect Horn to do some unbias research and come to the conclusion that at least some if not all the information was generated by an elite astronomical priest class. I agree with the luminary Sir William Drummond who suggested that elite astronomer priests made-up stories that reflected astronomical events and then fed this fodder to ignorant hordes. This was how religion started alongside calendar acknowledgements like solstices and equinoxes that became public holidays etc. The gospel in the stars might even have been inspired by events on Earth, but official story lines are constrained by having to conform to real astronomical events, as some are well aware... Oh well, so far, I am impressed with the range of source material but totally unimpressed with the interpretations and conclusions.



End of the Mayan era in 2012 confirmed? [VIDEO]
Latest UFO Sightings, 19th December 2011
Rodolfo Garrido presents information on the discovery and interpretation of a small Mayan monument, which confirms the date of the end of the era and the beginning of a new one to the December 21, 2012

Comment:
This is in Spanish with English subtitles. It looks like part of a documentary actually starts at 2:14. It's not a great deal of information but still more than has been presented in the mainstream media. The first 90 seconds seems to be some advertising. Well, I wrote out the transcript but here is my summary:
Paraphrased: When the mythical god Bolon Yokte arrives and he has already arrived and in place by the 21st December 2012, this god of creation and war (or destruction) will activate the "Guardian Prince" or "Protector that awakes". To prevent major chaos, Mayan kings are warned to act to "stabilise" the situation with their rituals.
Again, I must point out that the intellectually elite have traditionally thought in metaphors and preserved their secrets in metaphors and if you can't understand that, then trying to decode ancient knowledge without knowledge of the right 'keys' is a waste of time. So, the main point is that these are references to mythical gods that represent certain types of celestial and earthly forces. This is why over a period of 5,125 years the Mayans believe those same forces or gods can and will return. Well, space weather is here now, and authorities are working to mitigate the effects... Meanwhile, after all the hype about megadisasters, few can see the connection with the inevitable electromagnetic chaos caused by a downpour of celestial energies. Of course, this includes the impact on humans and the human energy field, hence the need for balance... Modern Mayan elders refer to the need for balance which is not the same meaning as stabilisation... There are some useful additional bits of information about the Tortuguero Monument 6 and Bolon Yokte K’u in the articles (see below, part II) written by Open Minds back in October. Again, it looks like in this short documentary extract provided in this YouTube clip, a vital bit of information have been missed out like a reference to "darkness". Well, if people have been paying attention to genuine Mayan elders, they will know that this refers a major space weather event, which the Maya believe the world should be expecting.


2012 Apocalypse Fears Unfounded, NASA Says
Space.com, 9th December 2011
Despite the hoopla surrounding the dateDec. 21, 2012, the world is not at risk of coming to a halt, NASA says. Aside from that date marking next year's winter solstice, the longest night of that year, nothing else interesting is expected. All in all, "sleep well on Dec. 21 of next year," said astronomer Don Yeomans, manager of NASA's Near-Earth Object program office at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., at a public talk yesterday (Dec. 8) about rumors of a 2012 apocalypse.

Comment:
Really, you really have to wonder about the intelligence/integration levels when genuine Mayan Elders are ignored in preference to people with no relevant qualifications and apparently, very little scientific understanding of why the Elders would try and explain about the arrival of Ether. Heh, in this run down of 2012 fears, NASA are admitting that space weather in the form of a solar storm IS an issue, but not much likelihood that anything will happen on the 21st December 2012 and that is because Mayan elders were specifically talking about the start of a new era, which even NASA scientists have agreed is true. Space Weather is now a permanent problem... Btw, I was amused by the 'pole dancing' header....



Phew! Mayan prediction of world ending in 2012 may be a 'misreading' - it's just the start of a new era, says expert
Daily Mail, 1st December 2011
* Conspiracy theorists predict 'end of the world'
* Expert says it's a misreading - it's a symbolic date
* Refers to a new period in the religious calendar

An inscription found in the Mayan temple of Tortuguero make a prediction of an apocalyptic even in 2012 - with some conspiracy theorists predicting the world being swallowed by a black hole, the sun, or just clipped by a passing asteroid.

The Mayan inscriptions refer to Bolon Yokte 'descending from the sky' in 2012 - a god associated with war and the underworld. But a German expert, Sven Gronemeyer, says that the whole thing could just be a misreading.

The tablet on which the inscription was found has a break which makes the end nearly illegible - but even so, the legible parts don't necessarily spell oncoming doomsday. Gronemeyer said his decoding of a Mayan artefact with a reference to a 2012 date denotes a transition to a new era in the Mayan calendar - and not a possible end of the world.

Comment:
That's the whole point... cosmic cycles and the start of a major new era, anthropomorphised for the simpletons as modern Mayan have pointed out... Modern Mayan Elders have gone around the world explaining this in terms of the arrival of the fifth element ether "– the realm where energy lives and weaves". It was explained as the start of an era that would last 5,125 years, associated approximately with a Galactic Alignment, that acted as a major time marker. It is a shame that Carlos Barrios was not taken more seriously after his epic efforts with his brother to interviw 600 Mayan Elders in Guatemala, even risking their own lives to traipse through the jungle during the middle of a guerilla war to gain some understanding of the ancient oral tradition. Meanwhile people preferred to listen to Mayan 'researchers' with no real qualifications who preferrred to ignore real Mayans, who obviously knew more than they did. I am even wondering if Carlos Barrios had made the link to the arrival of space weather, how many would have got it... It just seems to me the real issue is a major lack of spiritual and scientific education and comprehension. Meanwhile, we have The Sword of Damocles hanging over our heads, as our whole modern technological world is at risk, as governments and space agencies have revealed. This is NOT hysteria, it is now a fact and a few engineers and scientists have realised that we have to work to prevent a disaster. Our world has drastically changed, but the Average Joe is still mostly unaware of the implications.

The end of the world not happening - for now says expert
The end is not near. At least that's according to a German expert who says his decoding of a Mayan tablet with a reference to a 2012 date denotes a transition to a new era and not a possible end of the world as others have read it.
The Telegraph, 2nd December 2011



Mexico acknowledges 2nd Mayan reference to 2012
Yahoo News, 25th November 2011
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico's archaeology institute downplays theories that the ancient Mayas predicted some sort of apocalypse would occur in 2012, but on Thursday it acknowledged that a second reference to the date exists on a carved fragment found at a southern Mexico ruin site.

Most experts had cited only one surviving reference to the date in Mayan glyphs, a stone tablet from the Tortuguero site in the Gulf coast state of Tabasco.

But the National Institute of Anthropology and History said in a statement that there is in fact another apparent reference to the date at the nearby Comalcalco ruin. The inscription is on the carved or molded face of a brick. Comalcalco is unusual among Mayan temples in that it was constructed of bricks. [...]

However, erosion and a crack in the stone make the end of the passage almost illegible, though some read the last eroded glyphs as perhaps saying, "He will descend from the sky." [...]

The institute's experts say the Mayas saw time as a series of cycles that began and ended with regularity, but with nothing apocalyptic at the end of a given cycle.

Comment:
Hmmmm.... Another ancient message with the theme of something or someone coming from the sky associated with astronomical cycles... Modern Mayan Elders have been going around the world telling people what to expect (Age of the Ether), but most simply did not know enough to see the connection with Space Weather which is more than obvious now. Anyway, just think of all the ancient documents lying around deteriorating in museums that might reveal useful information. I have read that some researchers have picked up ancient texts thrown in the rubbish after being stolen from South America and taken back to Europe. When you understand what is facing our world, it is sickening that the academic community are still so oblivious to what this is really all about.



Mystical Udumbara Flower Spotted in California Backyard
Epoch Times, 16th November 2011
The legendary Udumbara flower, described in Buddhist sutras, was spotted blooming in a La Puente, Calif., backyard by a Buddhist follower at the end of October. The tiny white blossom is said to appear only about every 3,000 years, heralding the appearance of a holy person on earth.

Tony Fu, a devoted Buddhist originally from Taiwan, said that since he began to study the Buddhist scriptures in 2000, he occasionally hears objects around him talking to him, a phenomenon in keeping with the Buddhist faith.

Comment:
Hmmmm.... I don't know if this is a genuine story... but the legends surrounding the Udumbara flower are quite interesting when they are taken in context with other beliefs around the world that there are times when there is a downpour of celestial energies. (The belief in a holy person like the Return of The Cosmic Christ, Maitreya, Planetary Buddha etc, implies that we are really talking about a level of divine energy, that has been anthropomorphised for the simple folk.) The evidence shows these downpours do come every few thousand years and then there are major hits every 13,000 and 26,000 years [LaViolette, Earth Under fire, 1997, 2005]. The Russians have provided us with some interesting data because when they built huge pyramids around Moscow, (the geometry acts as a perfect receiver and transmitter of celestial energies and provides a balancing function), then previously EXTINCT plants reappeared, indicating that the concentration of certain types of energies does transform the environment.



Good news! Killer solar flare won't destroy Earth!
At least not in 2012, according to NASA, which also says to not sweat 'Planet X'
MSNBC News, 11th November 2011
If the world ends in 2012, the sun won't be to blame, NASA officials say.

Contrary to what some doomsayers would have you believe, our star isn't capable of blasting out a solar flare powerful enough to burn our planet to a crisp, according to the space agency.

"Most importantly, however, there simply isn't enough energy in the sun to send a killer fireball 93 million miles to destroy Earth," NASA officials wrote in a Nov. 10 statement. [...]

Space weather still an issue
The sun's rumblings can and do affect our planet, of course. Flares, for example, can temporarily alter Earth's upper atmosphere, causing disruptions in satellite communications.

Comment:
I suppose the doomsday herd are still desperately trying to stir anxiety, whilst the majority are still oblivious to what is really happening on this planet. The real threat is Space Weather and the effect on our modern technological world that is being more and more affected. Basically, society needs to wake up and start doing business differently on this planet.

2012: Killer solar flares are a physical impossibility (NASA VIDEO)
PhysOrg News, 11th November 2011
There is a HUGE difference between the planet being fried to a crisp and a CME knocking out power grids. If 100 million people lose their electricty for months or even years, engineers and scientists know that the impact would be devastating on society, hence a selection of major reports pointing this out, plus lots of other issues associated with space weather.

Mayan Secrets to Be Revealed by Mexican Government in '2012' Documentary
Reuters News, 17th August 2011
The Mexican government is releasing state-held secrets about the end of the Mayan calendar to the makers of a documentary, "Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond," TheWrap has learned.

The information -- protected for 80 years -- is expected to reveal Mayan beliefs in future catastrophes and wisdom characterized as "shocking," producer Raul Julia-Levy, son of actor Raul Julia, told TheWrap.

The end of the Mayan calendar in December 2012 has long given rise to theories and speculation about the end of the world. The agreement will allow Julia-Levy to film in never-before-seen locations. [...]

"This is very important for humanity, not just for Mexico," said Julia-Levy. "This information has been protected for 80 years, and now it's important for people to understand the series of events that are coming, and the consequences for all of us."

Comment:
Do we have something to look forward to... or not? If this is real information coming from the Mexican government about 'a series of events', it will completely KILL erroneous New Age ideas about a major happening on the 21st December 2012. Mayan Elders have stressed a series of astronomical events that are associated with a period of transition lasting about 25 years combined with the astronomical events of the arrival of a 'magnetic vortex' and three days of darkness. Astronomers have already told us there is a "potentially hazardous" cometary debris train on the way in 2016, and this could have the capacity to blot out the sun. It is quite possible that this was predicted by one of the 20 Mayan calendars, because despite the beliefs of narcissistic New Agers, the calendars were more than just about telling people whether they were going to have a bad day.

I have been saying for a long time that the wheels have fallen off the 2012 bandwagon, but it looks like the Mexican government are just about to drop a big bomb from a very great height. Get the popcorn ready!



The annotated apocalypse: Anthropologists tackle 2012
Boing Boing, 13th August 2011
There are 1000s of people who think that something important—if not the end or the world, then something—will happen on December 21, 2012. These speculations spring from a well-seasoned cultural melting pot, but a key ingredient is the writings and beliefs of both ancient and modern Maya people. In fact, the folks promoting the 2012 movement often frame themselves as experts in Maya traditions.

Here's the thing, though: There are actual experts in ancient Maya traditions, and actual experts who study the culture and religion of modern Maya living today. These archaeologists and anthropologists have, inadvertently, created some of the pop culture legends that spawned the 2012 movement. [...]

JH: I try to be fairly diplomatic about it. I try to realize that these myths play a very important role in people’s lives. They make them feel comfortable, help them feel better. I try to help people develop critical thinking skills, and help them understand that you can’t educate yourself simply by reading the web and watching the History Channel. That it requires a lot of scholarship and reading, and you have to look at the original academic literature. You can’t rely on popular magazines. You have to evaluate the primary information itself. Lots of people can’t afford the academic training they want and so they try to do it themselves and wind up with an autodidactic education that includes a lot of bizarre and totally wrong speculative literature. In fact, a lot of people writing about this are self taught in the same way.

Comment:
Archaeologist John Hoopes seems to be jumping on the 2012 bandwagon when the wheels have already fallen off. Anthropologists and archaeologist have virtually nothing to do with the modern Maya, but want to tell the world about their understanding of ancient Mayan monuments when modern Maya say that 90% of this information is highly speculative (that's a nice way of saying it's complete rubbish.) According to modern Maya, the discussion of the end of the Long Count calendar and the date 13.0.0.0.0 is only the approximate start of a new era that will be dominated by the element of ether (modern spelling aether). As Carlos Barrios points out, it's the birth of a new era but babies don't always come on the exact due date... Well, despite the fact that academics have not being able to integrate enough information to realise the obvious, the aether in the form of Space Weather has arrived approximately on time. There is other indigenous, esoteric and metaphysical knowledge that supports the beliefs of the modern Maya, but the Maya are the traditional galactic, cosmic and Earth energy Timekeepers and they have adequately fulfilled this role.



Top astronomers warn the world could end within 90 years
Two leading astronomers will put forward their stark predictions for mankind at the finale of the Edinburgh International Science Festival.
STV.com, 19th April 2011
The end of the world is nigh. That's what top astronomers will claim during a debate to end the 2011 Edinburgh International Science Festival.

Lord Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, believes civilisation has only a 50 per cent chance of surviving to 2100 without suffering a man-made catastrophe.

And the Astronomer Royal for Scotland, Professor John Brown, has an equally bleak outlook, fearing a random event from outer space is the most likely cause of our demise.

They will take to the stage to put forward their stark predictions in the discussion "Fire in the Sky: Cosmic Threats to Earth".

Comment:
I have noted that Lord Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal, seems to be very depressed about the general prospects for mankind, since I started following his views about alternative forms of life etc (see archives), but I have still not read his latest book Our Final Hour, only the reviews that say the book is quite apocalyptic in tone. I can only presume that Lord Rees knows a lot of facts, but he has not sought any spiritual guidance on what is in store for the future of mankind. Anyway, since I have commented before about Lord Rees' views in my recent Delft TU lecture, I won't repeat that here, but I will look out for a video link for this lecture.



An Alternate Perspective on 2012 and "the End of the Mayan Calendar"
Elvea Systems, March 2011
Recently, in a radio interview, I publicly stated that neither [Carl Johan Calleman's findings about] Oct. 28, 2011 nor [John Major Jenkins' and other people's assertions regarding] Dec. 21, 2012 are what we should be focused on relative to what is popularly believed to be the "end of the Mayan Calendar" [the Tzolkin] and humanity's quantum leap into Universal Consciouness. In that statement, I mentioned that the Gregorian Calendar date that is most important to consider, relative to the Tzolkin's creation cycles and the Mayan Long Count [the correlations between the Tzolkin, and the Gregorian Calendar] is March 31, 2013. Since people listening to the interview may not have fully grasped what I was communicating, this article is a brief clarification of my statement.

Comment:
I was sent this online article by the author Michaele de Cygne aka Alyras. The following is part of my email response on being sent details on yet another Mayan Calendar End Date.
John Major Jenkins is now distancing himself from the 2012 doomsday hype, but unfortunately, he [his work] is one of the reasons why the 2012 meme has become so popular with many wrong beliefs. [...]

I am not interested in getting involved with the infighting between Mayan researchers because I have focused on understanding REALITY. Modern Mayan Elders were very clear that we were entering a New Age dominated by space or the ether (modern spelling aether) and it is a scientific fact that Space Weather has been escalating for over 20 years. However, in reality, these energies have been slowly appearing for the whole of the last century and we are now seeing the trickle of evolutionary energies turning into a flood. If you have read my book, Tuning the Diamonds: Electromagnetism & Spiritual Evolution (2006) or read any of my essays you will see that I make this very clear.

Since, I wrote my book and had some dealings with Geoff Stray who was shocked to discover my more scientific interpretation of evolutionary change that I could link to the beliefs of Modern Mayan Elders, I decided to re-examine the beliefs about the Galactic Alignment. In due course, I was sent an email by Raymond Mardyks, a Galactic Astrologer who informed me that he was the original source of the Galactic Alignment idea and he says he just made some of it up as a teaching aid!

2012, Galactic Cosmology & A New World Age ( April, 2009)

JMJ is still ignoring the fact that modern Mayan Elders are considered the world's timekeepers for major astronomical and astrological events and we are facing a major transition. What I don't understand is the high level of abstract teaching, consciousness is energy it's not nothing! As far as I am aware, the Modern Mayan Elders are tracking Galactic, Cosmic and Earth energies and I am seeking to integrate this so that left-brained people can understand why there is a need to evolve and change to comply with new universal directives.

At this moment in time, I am most concerned that ordinary people do not understand that our planet is being bombarded with energies from deep space. Hence, why so many focus on world disasters because they are still tapping into old memories. There are legitimate concerns for anyone who has studied the history of the Earth and the warnings that have been left by our ancestors concerning the peril for humanity that occurs at certain points of transition.

The Greatest Transition in the History of Mankind: The Return of Paradise (June, 2010) 2 .pdf files

Quite frankly the Japanese disaster unfolding now is a perfect example of humans failing to realise that the old ways of doing things on this planet are not going to work in the new cosmic environment. Please read my blog because I have been pointing out why NASA et al. have been desperate to try and predict space weather which is delivering fresh evolutionary energies to Earth. The whole of our modern satellite communications and technological infrastructure is at risk. Things are so bad that the US military are thinking of giving up their [total] reliance on GPS. That's serious.

By the way, I think the Japanese 9.0 earthquake and tsunami might have been caused by a gravitational wave from deep space in exactly the same way that some astronomers believe it was the cause of the Sumatra 9.1 earthquake and tsunami in 2004.

I am simply not interested in the narrow focus of Mayan researchers who have not integrated their knowledge with what is taking place on this planet. Hence, in examining the work of people like JMJ and Calleman, who at least has a better philosophy of the evolution of consciousness, I have been less and less impressed as I have developed my own understanding based on the beliefs of many other traditional and modern metaphysical sources.

I am explaining to people that this transition taking place on Earth, will create new cosmic conditions that will last for thousands of years, which is the same opinion as modern mayan Elders who are true keepers of ancient knowledge. They don't know the exact transition date and for convenience, the 21st December 2012 is offered as an approximate. Hence, I am satisfied with the belief that this can be viewed like a woman giving birth to a baby, we are in the [late] pregnancy stage and the arrival date is not a 100% certain.

John Major Jenkins - The Myths and Fallacies of 2012
Red Ice Radio, 10th March 2011
Anthropologist John Major Jenkins has been investigating Mayan culture since 1985, helping unveil the Mayan calendar system that predicts a once-in-26,000-years "astronomical alignment"-the solstice sun and the Milky Way with the galactic center-occurring on December 21, 2012, a date that's gained an apocalyptic reputation in the popular consciousness. John joins us to talk about the misconceptions about 2012 and his book, "The 2012 story - The Myths, Fallacies and Truth behind the most intriguing date in History".

Comment:
OK, I was curious to see whether John Major Jenkins had anything different to say but all this interview does is clarify that JMJ is mostly interested in justifying his 2012 beliefs based on ancient Mayan artifacts. There is no interest in the beliefs of modern Mayan Elders who demonstrate an equal lack of interest in the work of anthropologists and suggest 90% of their ideas are rubbish. Here, JMJ talks about his struggle to engage scholars but his fundamental problem is his own lack of credentials, but due to his persistence he has finally got at least one academic to pay attention and we have some new information about some symbol on the Tourtoguero monument pointing to the 2012 date. JMJ has nothing to say about what is taking place on the planet now and there is only the abstract discussion of archetypes, and shifts in consciousness. The talk about those who have jumped on the bandwagon is a little unfair because even as JMJ agrees, an energetic shift in consciousness and the arrival of a New Age has been anticipated by many different traditional, indigenous, metaphysical and esoteric groups across the globe. There are solid reasons for why so many people focus on the possibility of worldwide disaster, but JMJ says this is not the focus of the ancient Mayan texts and artefacts. Again, modern Mayan Elders and the other indigenous Elders who rely on modern Mayan Timekeepers, would not agree and this is evident by paying attention to what they have to say. The acknowledgement that the ancient Maya were good astronomers does not explain WHY they were interested and how it relates to energetic shifts and New Ages. Since, the interview was recorded prior to the disaster in Japan, it just underlies the fact that there is no real in depth understanding of what this transition is really about, unless you are satisfied with his abstract talk. Modern Mayan Elders are monitoring GALACTIC, COSMIC and EARTH ENERGIES. According to our space scientists, the planet is now being slammed, JMJ cannot justify is beliefs in terms of the real world because his focus is on the interpretation of ancient Mayan artifacts. So, it must be stated that since he does not know the spiritual science passed down amongst true Mayan Elders that relates to how to interprete their own 20 calendars, 5 of them are so secret that westerners know nothing about them, them I think JMJ's work can only be very limited in scope and should not be seen as being definitive.

Alex Putney - Messages of Resonance Change in 2012, Betelgeuse & Modern Alchemy
Red Ice Radio, 10th February 2011
Alex Putney is behind the website Human Resonance. Human Resonance has been organized to share the rediscovery of a superfluid resonance technology of our ancient Sanskrit mother culture, crystallizing the body and synchronizing human consciousness. He returns to the program to discuss extra terrestrial and prophetic messages about 2012 and the high resonance changes and transformations that humankind and our planet might be facing in the next few years. We discuss the next magnetic reversal, Betelgeuse supernova being visible from earth in 2012 and giant skeletons found in Ecuador, where Alex currently is. Then, Alex talks about purification of water and physical alchemy, a scientific experiment that now is taking place in the United States by Joe Champion. Dr Champion has allegedly managed to transmute copper, lead and other metals into precious metals such as silver, gold and platinum.

Comment:
I can't agree with everything, especially the emphasis on the 21st December 2012 because there is no mention of Space Weather and the continuous build up of energies on our planet, but I really liked the talk about how humans are going to change. Towards the end of Part I, Alex Putney talks about enlightenment and raised consciousness and greater discernment but he does not mention that our neuroscientists have been monitoring a massive increase of people with Synesthesia. We have gone from 1 in 25,000 in the mid 1980s to 1 in 100 in 2006. Since I have synesthesia too, I am constantly getting signals about people that I pick up as smell. Alex talks about the change that is going to come about when people can see auras and can pick up whether people are lying but I believe this is already going on, as people start to work out what the new signals they are receiving actually mean. So, with Synesthesia, bioelectromagnetic information is being picked up by the senses, reinterpreted by the brain and presented in a different way. Our scientists tell us straight they do not know why some information becomes conscious and other information does not. So, there are experiments when people can have images beamed directly into their eyes, but neuroscientists say that these images can still be ignored and do not appear into a person's conscious awareness and they don't know why. So, brains are evolving now and spiritual evolution appears to be already taking place on a massive scale. Hence, I think many are going to be disappointed if they are waiting for a magic bullet on the 21st December 2012. At the end of Part I, Henrik asks Alex about how his work could be supported by others. I totally love his response as he talks about his preference for receiving positive energies and love from people, wow!

If you have read my book, my essay The Greatest Transition in the History of Mankind, blog comments and studied the material on both my websites, then you will see there is a clear overlap with the work of Alex Putney, and that is the reason why Red Ice Radio listed my interview as background to Alex Putney's interview. However, I have not taken any stance on ET sourced material and with the Billy Meier story, I have not taken a great deal of interest. So, I am not a believer, but saying that, I am quite struck by the following quote taken from Putney's latest free online e-book Lightwater.
Ptaah: When the epochs change, so also do the minds of the forms of life. This has also happened to humans now. The Age of Fishes was characterized by religious fanaticism… Then the birth pains of the Age of Aquarius began, and suddenly the Earth human started to listen inside of himself. And he started to think and to explore, and suddenly recognized logic only in truth. He developed in a short time his thinking abilities, and searched and explored… which is a characteristic of the Age of Aquarius. And this is one of the main reasons why certain human beings are now being contacted by extraterrestrial forms of life again. The present Age of Aquarius demands thinking and spiritual evolution of the humans of Earth. This cannot be achieved by seeing and listening with the physical organs only, but only by reasoned thought. If we appear officially in our beamships and spacecraft, the effect of deliberation and of thought would suffer, because the Earth human, in his present state of evolution, does no longer deliberate and search that which he can see with his own eyes and hear with his ears. Beyond the seeing and hearing, the interest is short-lived, because that soon becomes a natural event to him, and he no longer cares. What he knows no more interests him. His interest is only aroused by secrets for which he can hunt. [Emphasis added]
Lightwater, Chapter 3 - The Plejaren, pg76, Reference: Stevens WC Ed. (1988) ‘Message from the Pleiades: The Contact Notes of Eduard Billy Meier, Volume 1’ Genesis III Publishing, pp. 150-154
So, "The present Age of Aquarius demands thinking and spiritual evolution of the humans of Earth.", so why are there so many so-called spirtual teachers (Pied Pipers) doing extremely well telling their followers to switch off their own reasoning ability? Of course, the switching off and allowing brain circuits to atrophy does not effect followers from buying books, cds, dvds, and attending seminar after seminar etc.



Will the Earth Have Two Suns by 2012?
Time, 21st January 2011
In the Star Wars saga, George Lucas imagined a world where twin suns rose and fell in the horizon. Looks like his vision may not be so far-fetched.

Astrophysicists say that Betelgeuse, the red super-giant that is the ninth brightest star in the sky, is losing mass—an indication of gravitational collapse. Brad Carter, a senior lecturer of physics at the University of Southern Queensland, explained to news.com.au that the star is essentially running out of the fuel at its core. “This fuel keeps Betelgeuse shining and supported. When this fuel runs out the star will literally collapse in upon itself and it will do so very quickly,” he said. The subsequent explosion will appear tens of millions of times brighter than the sun, meaning 24-hours of light on Earth.

Comment:
Is this mainstream media 2012 hype? Another version of this same theme is Tatooine's twin suns - coming to a planet near you just as soon as Betelgeuse explodes However, it comes after the story of George Lucas, the Star Wars director apparently hyperventilating about 2012, see Rogen stunned by Lucas' 2012 theory Well, there has been plenty of scientific speculation about Betelgeuse, Nostradamus is supposed to have made a prediction and the Hopi talk about the coming of the Red Star Kachina that will arrive soon after the Blue Star Kachina, (which they claim was Comet Holmes), but there has never been a link to 2012. Quite frankly, these press releases are very suspicious and smack of hyping up 2012, so that the media can turn round and claim nothing happened. Meanwhile, there is a massive elephant in the room called Space Weather that is far more relevant to humanity and our technological societies.

NASA's silly sci-fi film list -- 2012 the most flawed (w/ Video)
PhysOrg.com, 7th January 2011
(PhysOrg.com) -- At a conference held at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in California, NASA experts have voted 2012 the most scientifically flawed and absurd science fiction film ever made.

The 2009 disaster film named 2012 was directed by Roland Emmerich and written by Emmerich and Harald Kloser and grossed almost $800 million. The story is set on the date the Mayan calendar supposedly ends (21 December 2012), which is believed by some to be the day the world will end. The story revolves around a marital reconciliation, which takes place as the world begins to collapse as strange neutrino particles cause global devastation.

NASA’s Donald Yeomans, who headed the Near Earth Asteroid Rendezvous mission, called the film an "exceptional and extraordinary" example of bad science in Hollywood movies. He pointed out that neutrino particles cannot interact with physical substances, and there is no possible way neutrinos carried to Earth by solar flares as depicted could cook the planet’s core and cause hurricanes or earthquakes or produce tsunamis big enough to overwhelm Mount Everest as shown in the film.

NASA has received a massive amount of mail as a result of people’s concerns about the world ending in 2012, and has set up a website to debunk the myths, which is something they have never needed to do with previous disaster films. This is a major reason for their list of bad science films — because they do worry many people. (Are we expected to believe that NASA care about people's concerns?)

Other films on NASA’s silly list include The Day After Tomorrow, about accelerated global warming, Volcano, in which a volcano appears in Los Angeles, the supposed documentary What the Bleep Do We Know, The Sixth Day, Chain Reaction, and The Core. Another film on the hit list is Armageddon, a film about a massive asteroid being blown up by a nuclear bomb to save the Earth. The film was originally supported by NASA.

Comment:
NASA obviously does not have anything else better to do and their poor prioritisation, might explain why their Space Weather forecasting and mitigation attempts are going nowhere. I note that the film The Core is also on the list of 'bad' films. Yes, it is supposed to be science fiction, but certain elements were deliberately written in to teach people how we could tell the Earth's magnetic field was dramatically weakening, which funnily enough, is now happening at an alarming rate, as we see birds dropping dead all over the planet and all the other "signs" that creatures that use the Earth's magnetic field are sometimes getting into trouble. How pathetic are NASA? Well, the other view is that people are in a state of panic over 2012 fears and NASA are trying to stop this, but as an agency that is known as Never A Straight Answer, they don't have much credibibilty in the mind of many who have serious doubts about rather more important issues like: what exactly are NASA hiding about the moon? (Btw, the scientist in this video offers simplistic explanations about Earth magnetic field reversals and Earth orbital motions, to reassure uneducated adults who presumably can't be expected to understand celestial complexities.)

A Jose Escamilla film that must be watched if you still have any doubts that NASA as an agency are interested in revealing all their discoveries to the general public.



Apocalyptic Enthusiasm And The Royal Society
GWPF, 5th January 2011
On the 350th anniversary of the Royal Society we reflect on how it first successfully promoted science as a sober and reasonable force serving society by dampening the prevailing apocalyptic ‘enthusiasm’ at large in Restoration England, and how the Society’s relationship to fearful prognostations was recently reversed when it came to promote apocalyptic environmentalism. This reversal is indicated by the election of the Royal Society’s current president in 2005, shortly after he had published one of the most extremely apocalyptic books ever written by a scientist.

Comment:
If you have read my essay The Greatest Transition and understood that astronomers are much more likely than most to be aware of the truth behind massive global change, then the apocalytic tone of this book should be no surprise. I might even get a copy, as Sir Martin Rees is the Queen's astronomer and it is a complete certainty, that he will be aware of preserved ancient astronomical knowledge passed down through millenia, which relates to astronomical cycles that can have a devastating impact on Earth. If there is anyone on the planet that knows the truth behind massive global upheavals that should be rightly considered as apocalyptic, it is this man.



Loose Christian Movement Says End of Days in May 21, 2011
The Blaze, 3rd January 2011
RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — If there had been time, Marie Exley would have liked to start a family. Instead, the 32-year-old Army veteran has less than six months left, which she’ll spend spreading a stark warning: Judgment Day is almost here. Exley is part of a movement of Christians loosely organized by radio broadcasts and websites, independent of churches and convinced by their reading of the Bible that the end of the world will begin on May 21, 2011.

Comment:
After decades of truth seeking, I have worked out that information about 'The End Times' has been recorded in all the world's religions, and retained by indigenous and small esoteric groups. Basically, it refers to what happens at various points in the Earth's precessional cycle that overall takes about 26,000 years. This means that all the doom and fearmongering is actually based on a certain reality, but the meaning and details have been generally lost. As far as I understand it, massive evolutionary change to the environment of Earth and major astronomical events occur, but the fate of mankind is determined by the overall spiritual state of mankind. This is explained in my essay The Greatest Transition and I would be interested in any other author who has written on this subject that could provide the same level of clarity. As far as I am concerned, the Catholic Church did the Christian world a disservice by not refering to the return of 'Christ' energies, but in reality, the serious 'Initiates' would of course know that. So, if you look at the history of these profits prophets of doom, you will note that whipping people up with tales of God's judgement is very common, but very very few properly explain how and why mankind are destined for judgement and how we can tell what the likely outcome is this time for the whole of mankind today. To cut a long story short, I think we are on a rocky road to a completely transformed world, a Paradise to host humans of a higher level of consciousness. The stress will be due to the refusal by the old guard to cooperate with Universal Intelligence and change the way we do business on this planet to one that is in harmony with planetary intelligence.



French village which will 'survive 2012 Armageddon' plagued by visitors
The Telegraph, 21st December 2010
The mayor of a picturesque French village has threatened to call in the army to seal it off from a tide of New Age fanatics and UFO watchers, who are convinced it is the only place on Earth to be spared Armageddon in 2012.

Bugarach, population 189, is a peaceful farming village in the Aude region, southwestern France and sits at the foot of the Pic de Bugarach, the highest mountain in the Corbières wine-growing area.

But in the past few months, the quiet village has been inundated by groups of esoteric outsiders who believe the peak is an "alien garage".

According to them, extraterrestrials are quietly waiting in a massive cavity beneath the rock for the world to end, at which point they will leave, taking, it is hoped, a lucky few humans with them.

Most believe Armageddon will take place on December 21, 2012, the end date of the ancient Maya calendar, at which point they predict human civilisation will come to an end. Another favourite date mentioned is 12, December, 2012. They see Bugarach as one of perhaps several "sacred mountains" sheltered from the cataclysm.

Comment:
Hmmm... the army protecting a sacred mountain against New Agers would be interesting to watch...



From Here & Back Again: The World is Ending in 2012 … or is it?
County Courier, 21st November 2010
There have been many predictions of the end of the world; they have all been wrong. But they do provide both humor and pathos and the opportunity to reflect on human nature. These include prophesies/predictions of the end of the world, Armageddon, the rapture, the coming of a messiah, the second coming of a messiah and other such world-ending events. [...]

Many such prophecies/predictions are based on religion, but astrologers, scientists and quacks have also been involved, and they have come from all around the world. A brief, incomplete look is revealing.

Comment:
Well, if people understood the true root of religion is astronomy and that the only way to understand the concept of End Times is the end of a cosmic cycle, then the messages encouraging people to watch out for various signs in the heavens would make a lot more sense. If people realised that the initiated know that ancient religious text was designed to be anthropomorphic to appeal to lesser minds and that people who run cults, esoteric/metaphysical groups and religions are often brilliant at controlling people for their own benefit, then a lot of confusion would be avoided. As the writer points out here, Mayan Elders have gone out of their way to correct the completely false ideas about 2012, but this is ignored because whipping folk up into a frenzy is better for business. Interestingly, we have major evolutionary change happening all around us, as predicted by genuine Keepers of Ancient Knowledge, but the levels of ignorance amongst the public are truly astounding. This article provides some history, but no enlightenment as to why the collective memory of the world ending still reverberates with so many people.



Why Is Russia Building 5000 More Nuclear Bomb Shelters In Moscow By The End Of 2012?
End of the American Dream, 11th November 2010
Russia certainly seems to be in a hurry to prepare for something.  RT is reporting that 5,000 new nuclear bomb shelters will be constructed in the city of Moscow by the end of 2012.

Russian authorities believe that these new shelters are urgently needed because the current nuclear bomb shelters will only hold approximately half the population and are quite outdated.

In addition, there are apparently very few nuclear bomb shelters for those living outside the city center at this point. Officials want virtually the entire population of Moscow to be able to reach a bomb shelter within a matter of minutes. But in this era when the "Cold War" is supposed to be over, why are 5000 nuclear bomb shelters such an urgent necessity?

Comment:
It seems that the Russians are also planning for major catastrophe. Read my essay The Greatest Transition, the Russians realise we are facing a cosmic armageddon and it might be a bit rough for a while.



Phew! 2012 Doomsday Date May Be Wrong
ABC News, 20th October 2010
The much-hyped "prediction" that, according to the ancient Mayan calendar, the world will end on Dec. 21, 2012, may be based on a miscalculation. According to recent research, the mythological date of the "end of days" may be off by 50 to 100 years.

To convert the ancient Mayan calendar to the Gregorian (or modern) calendar, scholars use a numerical value (called the GMT). But Gerardo Aldana, a professor at the University of California, Santa Barbara, says the data supporting the widely-adopted conversion factor may be invalid.

In a chapter in the book "Calendars and Years II: Astronomy and Time in the Ancient and Medieval World," Aldana casts doubt on the accuracy of the Mayan calendar correlation, saying that the 2012 prophecy as well as other historical dates may be off.

Comment:
Modern Mayan Elders have NO interest in the calculations of anthropologists and have very little confidence in their efforts to decode ancient Mayan artefacts. What's more, most people have ignored what genuine Mayan Elders have had to say anyway. The modern Mayan Elder Carlos Barrios acted as an envoy and explained that Elders from Guatemala believed that we were entering a New Age dominated by ether (modern spelling aether) or space. This was going to take place over a 25 year period of transition, and this has been fulfilled by the arrival of Space Weather. Strangely enough, scientists from around the world are now pointing out the impact of Space Weather and NASA scientists have declared:
"Earth and space are about to come into contact in a way that's new to human history."

According to Richard Fisher, head of NASA’s Heliophysics Division:

"I believe we’re on the threshold of a new era in which space weather can be as influential in our daily lives as ordinary terrestrial weather."

"We take this very seriously indeed."

Mayan Elders have been debunking the doomsday scenario for a long time, but too many people are making money off the fearmongering and nobody is asking any relevant questions about what the SPIRITUAL significance of 2012 is all about.



Russian scientists expect increased solar radiation, not doomsday in 2012
RIA Novosti, 4th October 2010
Copy: "The scientific community does not expect the end of the world in 2012 as predicted by the Mayan Prophecy, although increased solar activity may harm satellites and endanger astronauts, a Russian doctor of physical and mathematical sciences said on Monday.

"The solar exposure on near-Earth space will increase, causing perturbations in the atmosphere, which will break space apparatus," Vladimir Kuznetsov who works for the Institute of Earth magnetism, Ionosphere and Radio waves of the Russian Academy of Sciences said. "Enhanced radiation could also endanger cosmonauts."

December 12, 2012 is the end of a calendar created by the ancient Mayan civilization of South America. Over the years, scientists and speculators have proposed numerous astronomical alignments and formulas, which allegedly prove that the end is nigh.

Comment:
This article is way too short! As usual, the Russian translation leaves us tantalised with the notion of "breaking space apparatus..." Unfortunately, there is simply not enough information here to speculatate on whether these Russian scientists are refering to heightened solar activity or whether they think that cosmic cycles are contributing to the decline of the Earth's magnetic field. Anyway, this is a must see, Did you know there were this many satellites in orbit?



Magnetic apocalypse 2012 (Video, 7:51)
RIA Novosti, 11th August 2010
Interview with doctor Anatoly Levitin, head of the geomagnetic variations laboratory at the Institute of Terrestrial Magnetism, Ionosphere and Radiowave Propagation of the Russian Academy of Sciences. When will the Earth’s magnetic poles change? What are the possible consequences? And is there any scientific ground to expect the Doomsday in 2012?

Comment:
I have absolutely no argument with any of the responses given by this Russian scientist in this interview! Note the response to whether climate change being not necessarily manmade and the talk about the Energy Budget, the statement, "We are children of the Sun" is especially interesting! The interviewer who brings up 2012 and predictions of poles shifts is not given any solace from the scientist, but it looks like the 2012 disaster hype is in full swing in Russia too! Interestingly, there is talk of those who won't make the fourth dimension, but quite frankly I think the fourth dimension is already here in some parts of the world. However, to be fair, we can't rule out a huge bolt of electromagnetic energy hitting Earth and reversing the magnetic poles. This is because some Mayan Elders are now making it very clear that a "magnetic vortex" is on it's way, but they will not give an arrival date. One of the major consequences seems like the permanent ignition of the auroral plasma column that surrounds Earth that scientists believe was the ancient and mythological World Sacred Tree. This is explained in my latest essay, The Greatest Transition in the History of Mankind.



Planet X and 2012 and Astrology: Exploring the Claims of Astrologer Terry Nazon on 2012, Part 2
Exposing Pseudo Astronomy, 16th February 2010
This is Part 2 of my two-part series on the 2012 claims of astrologer Terry Nazon, found on her website, “The Mayan Prophecy of 2012,” which I found after seeing the Coast to Coast AM late-night George Noory -hosted radio show for February 15, 2010 on their “Astrology Special.”

Part 1 of this series dealt with Ms. Nazan’s specific numbered claims on that page on her website. This second part will focus on the claims she makes throughout the paragraphical text on the page.

Comment:
I have only recently discovered this blog debunking 2012 and related urban myths. Stuart Robbins is currently doing his Ph.D at University of Colorado, Boulder in Boulder, Colorado and he has kindly offered his support in debunking the many misleading ideas that are currently floating around about 2012. I would like to highlight a few of his other articles here: Please note: Mayan Elders used this alignment as a celestial marker but they emphasised a 25 year period of transformation leading to the start of a New Age dominated by space and the ether that would last 5,200 years. Since space weather is now a major issue and at times, Earth completely lowers its magnetic shield, ie we have NO magnetic shielding (daylight side) from galactic cosmic rays and we are being blasted by some of the most extreme celestial objects in the universe to generate some severe space weather, it seems that the majority of 2012 pundits have got this very badly wrong. Meanwhile, spacetime is evolving as predicted, we are awash with interdimensional entities that people can now see with the naked eye and people are still talking about something happening on the 21st December 2012. Question: Why are people talking about a 1 day Mayan Calendar celebration, instead of what life is going to be like on Earth being inundated by cosmic radiation that will cause evolutionary change through DNA mutations?



2012: Mayan Prophecy and the Shift of Ages
2012: The New Age making of an apocalyptic movie
Philip Coppens, February 2010
Mass suicide in the Mayan city of Tikal, Guatemala. Killer solar rays that will erupt and heat the Earth’s core, resulting in a shift of the tectonic plates. This somehow linked with the galactic alignment of the Earth, the sun and the centre of our galaxy. Welcome to the world of Roland Emmerich’s “2012”, the latest creation of a movie director with a clear apocalyptic appetite with movies like “Independence Day”, “Godzilla” and “The Day After Tomorrow” already to his credit.

Call it the alternative, esoteric or new age community: fact of the matter is that in the past decade, this community has grown from being seen as completely surplus to requirements which no-one noticed or took serious, to a new market, and one still largely untapped, except by Hollywood film writers – Emmerich prominently amongst them. His “2012” movie has highlighted that, as was the case with “The Da Vinci Code”, this genre is on the up. However, the vital question one has to ask is whether this mass publicity has created any true change for the better.

Some in the new age community are no doubt happy that the world now knows about the 2012 phenomenon. At the same time, however, the message is one of utter doom and gloom, on a far grander scale than anything ever portrayed. Is that the message the new age wants to send out to the world? [...]

The problem of the movie and the common misunderstanding of the 2012 phenomenon is this: three 2012 theories have been piled on top of each other, thus creating a monster that has also spawned this movie – and has sown confusion across the world.
[...]

I will be the first to argue that the 2012 phenomenon is extremely interesting. But the majority of those involved are absolutely non-apocalyptic in their approach. Alas, the vociferous and doomsday preachers have largely taken centre stage, with television documentaries riding on the coattails of the movie interested in imaginary Nostradamus’ prophecies for 2012 or devoting endless hours to an “2012 apocalypse”. Alternative authors are given a stage to step in the limelight to have their voice heard, even though it may not be in their own best interest, or the message the alternative field should send into the world. “We” may have set the stage for three years of the world pondering the idea whether, indeed, the world might end in 2012 after all. A fear based on a mistaken notion. And hence, those who often identify themselves as truth seekers, have contributed – knowingly, unknowingly or innocently – to another lie. That is not a good thing.

Comment:
The problem with this analysis is that the three major theories piled on top of each other have completely and utterly missed the point of the celestial marker that the 2012 galactic alignment was supposed to be about. Mayan Elders and other 'Keepers of Ancient Knowledge' predicted the 'overturning of spacetime' and arrival of New Age dominated by space and the ether that would occur over a period of 25 years of transition. The 21st December 2012 was only an "official" birthdate but it's not meant to be exact, the Elders refer to a birth and babies don't always arrive on the predicted date but it's close enough approximation. Meanwhile, we have seen the arrival of 'Space Weather' which is the modern space age term for how we are experiencing this new dispensation that has gathering momentum for over 20 years and there are a bunch of other major consequences that have also been predicted like the lifting of the veil. However, despite the fact that the planet is getting hammered with Space Weather and this was enough to set alarms bells ringing in the White House, it still seems that the new Age community are still largely none the wiser. BTW the biggest joke is the Inuit Indians claiming that there has been a pole shift. I had largely ignored all the theories of a physical pole shift because it meant that 90% of the humans on the planet would die and I did not see that was on the cards for humanity. However, when I looked again at the website of someone who is strongly advocating a pole shift, they mentioned that there was two types of pole shift and of course they did not give any details of the relative merits because that 'other' type of pole shift now being claimed by the Inuit Indians would not create any fear or trepidation. If it's true and the gravity surveys being carried out by NASA suggest it could be true, it means that the apocalyptic scenario was choosen over any kind of concern for supporting the rise of human consciousness on Earth.



Mexican journalist to present evidence of UFO sightings
The Monitor, 4th February 2010
McALLEN — Mexican UFOlogist Jaime Maussan is convinced mankind will see a marked change in the year 2012. “It could be a change in the climate or in the human being itself,” Maussan said. Maussan, who has collected, documented and researched videos, pictures and sightings of UFOs and extraterrestrials for the past 26 years, considers the possibility of a 2012 mass destruction “a stupidity.”

“The Mayans believed that every 5,125 years there would be a change, and that period is due on Dec. 21, 2012,” said Maussan, a former anchor and reporter for the Mexican edition of 60 Minutes. “I’m a journalist, not a scientist, and as journalist I am not prejudiced,” he said. “I collect the images that are sent to me and I present them to the public, and they are the ones that make up their minds.” [...] [UFOlogist Jaime Maussan talks about Mayan prophecies for 2012 Thursday at the Roof Top Lounge in Edinburg.]

Comment:
Well, Mexico is one place in the world where there is a very strong UAP presence. I actually agree with Jaime Maussan and his views about 2012, so I hope he has got the message that we are seeing masssive evolutionary change. Quite frankly, I was stunned to learn about the Mayan belief of the return of the B'alameb' who are the cosmic guardians of the four corners of the universe. From the sparse information on the internet, it looks like the vast majority of Mayan researchers missed this Mayan prophecy and the connection with 2012. Hence, it would be interesting to count up how many Mayan researchers made any references to what might happen. See my book review The Book of Destiny: Unlocking the Secrets of the Ancient Mayans and the Prophecy of 2012



PART 1 OF 6 - 2012: Humankind at a Crossroads
SCRIBD.com, January 2010
In this 6 part presentation, author Lauren Tratar describes how the events occurring in our world today have a deeper meaning. Ancient prophecies from civilizations all over the globe describe how ...

Comment:
This is a beautifully presented picture book in six parts, filled with quotes and some useful information. However, for educational purposes, the conclusion reached here has to be seriously challenged. It seems that the author believes that mankind's destiny is based on whether or not we understand and apply The Law(s) of the Universe which appears to have been condensed into the overblown Law of Attraction, that every low down confidence trickster in the New Age community is milking for all it's worth these days. I am particular upset that 'The Secret' got a mention, especially as we now know that one of the stars was James Ray, who has proven himself to have been a master of the dark arts, using all the most covert tricks of persuasion that have been appropriated by the most cunning salespeople on the planet. Be warned! There are one or two other characters, briefly mentioned here too that are also under suspicion for the exact same misuse of powers. So, it is clear that the veil is lifting, the planet is being inundated with evolutionary energies and the vast majority of people are totally unprepared for the consequences. This book is useful, as long as you DO NOT believe that this represents the whole of The Big Picture.



[Mayan Elder Carlos Barrios] A wave of charged particles
Prophetic Voices, 11th January 2010
Message from Mitch Battros
January 8th, 2010
The Mayan elder Carlos Barrios has given some news about events going to happen in the year 2010. Mitch Battros writes:
» New information regarding events which could occur during 2010 has been mentioned in our last phone conversation. The information which had been told to me remains as follows: There will be an ESCALATION OF EARTHQUAKE ACTIVITY, VOLCANIC ACTIVITY, and a NEAR-MISS SMALLER BOLIDE which will go undetected until 24 hours to its presence.

The new information presented to me yesterday is RELATED TO A WAVE OF CHARGED PARTICLES which will have a significant effect on Earth. All the above is predicted to occur in 2010. »

Comment:
This is from Mitch Battros who has interviewed Mayan Elder Carlos Barrios and who then wrote a longer report 11th Jan 2010, IT HAS BEGUN - PREPARE, SAY MAYAN ELDERS about events which could occur during 2010. Presumably, the information given here is taken from The Earthchangesmedia.com website and since this info is only for subscribers, you will just have to ignore the commentary. Mitch Battros is very aware of Space Weather so it is difficult to tell how much of this interview is taken from Carlos Barrios and how much is his interpretation, I can only presume that the emphasis on the A WAVE OF CHARGED PARTICLES which will have a significant effect on Earth was stressed by Barrios, and it is most interesting that we have a Mayan Elder now talking about severe Space Weather! Note: If this is diamond ray energy about to hit us big time, then I should expect this message to be reflected in other channelled messages, so I am now on the look out...



2012: Apocalypse or New Sun [3:58]
YouTube, November 2009
In the ancient cities of the Maya, Grand Elder "Wandering Wolf" talks about 2012, the end of the world, the New Sun and the ancestral knowledge of the Shift of the Ages.

Comment:
Please note the term Apocalypse here refers to the Second Century A.D. onward meaning given in Christian & Jewish writings, meaning of the destruction of earth as we now know it. It is NOT the original meaning of the Greek phrase apokalupsis eschaton, shortened to 'Apocalypse' which means "revelation at the end of the æon, or age". See Wikipedia. This clip from the 2012 film 'Shift of the Ages' gives a little more information about the Sun and cause of the 3 days of darkness. It seems that the trigger was previously made known by the Mayan Timekeeper Carlos Barrios in interviews given back in 2007. Mayan Elders have retained ancient knowledge of our approach to a central magnetic axis where a vortex arrives every 5,200 years that 'resets' the sun. Obviously, this is major news, but who exactly amongst the hundreds of books on 2012 discusses the theory and evidence for this event? This is no cosmic fairy tale and I believe this is the same event that has previously burnt out the Earth's electromagnetic grid and has been retained embedded in certain traditions, ancient Greek writings and ancient mythology. Hence, this is why certain reliable metaphysical sources have been telling us for nearly 20 years that the Earth's electromagnetic grid was being fixed up to cope with the sudden influx of highly charged energy. We even have Russian scientists admitting that "interworld processes" were taking place "altering the electromagnetic skeleton". When I wrote my book, I did not know anything about this magnetic vortex but I had done enough background research to understand WHY this is necessary. Maybe, there are researchers out there who have done the work, but I have not come across them yet, but it would have helped dealing with the current 2012 hysteria if people who claim to be experts on the Maya had actually bothered to check with them first before jumping off the deep end with irrelevant ideas that have now become mainstream fodder.



2012: Carnival of Bunkum
H+ Magazine, 11th November 2009
I like a good apocalypse as much as the next American, which is why I’ll be braving the Stepfordian horrors of the local mall for the opening of 2012, the German director Roland Emmerich’s latest exercise in disaster porn. The trailer is awesome. [...]

Profoundly. Daniel Pinchbeck, author of 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl (the Nahuatl name for the feathered serpent god of the Mesoamerican peoples), is an object lesson in the hidden costs of myth. Bidding fair to become the media face of the 2012 phenomenon, Pinchbeck is a tireless publicist for the global cataclysm and universal outbreak of cosmic consciousness he believes will ensue when the digital alarm-clock numbers click over to 2012.

Which makes him the poster child for all that’s worst about the 2012 craze. Pinchbeck’s feathered serpent-oil salesmanship offers a case study in some of its most pernicious aspects. [...]

But the worst of the 2012 bandwagon, epitomized by Pinchbeck’s lectures and writings, is the blithe cultural arrogance and staggering anthropological ignorance evident in the movement’s appropriation of Mayan beliefs and history.

In a discussion hosted by Pinchbeck’s online magazine Reality Sandwich, the cultural theorist Erik Davis puts his finger on the minstrelsy implicit in the ventriloquization, by white, first-world New Agers, of the Maya. “[I]t seems to me that there is very little concrete sense of what ‘the Mayans’ (whoever that grand abstraction represents) thought about what would happen in the human world on 2012,” he writes. “To my mind it is kinda disrespectful to the Mayans to force them into our own narrative.”

Comment:
The last paragraph excerpted and highlighted here hits the nail on the head and points out the lack of dialogue between genuine Mayan Elders and Mayan 'researchers'. Whatever, this article is a scathing attack on Daniel Pinchbeck, who is deemed as being representative of those ripping off Mayan culture. However, I will add that Pinchbeck is probably still recovering from shock after I contacted his website www.realitysandwich.com to ask why they were not informing people about what is really happening. Since I sent them a copy of my article 2012: What's really happening on request, the response has been a notable silence. Yet, I will give realitysandwich.com the benefit of the doubt, as they may still be checking the 750 references in my book, but they might still find it hard to swallow that the New Age community missed the phenomena of Space Weather, that has been occupying the attention of the space community for about 20 years.



2012: The End Of The World?
Information is Beautiful, 11th November 2009
Comment: This is an infographic that explains what some 2012 believers are claiming and the prevailing response of skeptics. Obviously, some of this information in this chart is wrong or requires further explanation, but there are parts that are still informative. The comment about Daniel Pinchbeck as the reincarnation of the Mayan god Quetzacoatl is new to me, but I can assure you that if he thinks this to be true, he is a god that does not know what the hell is going on as far as the fulfillment of genuine mayan prophecy. I have updated this infographic with my comments here.



NASA on a crusade to debunk 2012 apocalypse myths
Breitbart News, 9th November 2009
The world is not coming to an end on December 21, 2012, the US space agency insisted Monday in a rare campaign to dispel widespread rumors fuelled by the Internet and a new Hollywood movie.

Sony Pictures's latest big screen offering "2012" arrives in theaters on Friday, with a 200-million-dollar production about the end of the world supposedly based on myths backed by the Mayan calendar. The doomsday scenario revolves claims that the end of time will come as an obscure Planet X -- or Nibiru -- heads toward or collides into Earth.

The mysterious planet was supposedly discovered by the Sumerians, according to claims by pseudo-scientists, paranormal activity enthusiasts and Internet theorists. Some websites accuse NASA of concealing the truth on the wayward planet's existence, but the US space agency denounced such stories as an "Internet hoax."

Comment:
I have not seen a press release from NASA but if I come across it, I will post the link. From a perspective of people waking up to what's really going on, this is obviously all quite interesting.



2012 Prophecies Sparking Real Fears, Suicide Warnings
National Geographic News, 9th November 2009
It's almost the end of the world, according to purported Maya predictions, and the 2012 apocalypse business is booming.

Survival kits, documentaries, and nearly 200 books presenting the "real" 2012 story are all on offer. And you could probably surf the Web from now until Armaggedon—tentatively slated for December 21, 2012—and still see just a fraction of the Web sites and products devoted to the topic.

But amid all the hype—including a viral marketing campaign for 2012, the disaster movie opening Friday—some people are developing honest "end times" anxiety that has experts seriously concerned.

Comment:
It would help if people actually understood what was really happening, but the vast majority have bought into the stuff about a planet X wandering into our solar system and causing havoc or even worse, the 2012 Galactic Alignment or Cosmic Fairy Tale of Father Sun having a union with Cosmic Mother on the 21st December 2012. The supposed reason for the hysteria is the end of the Mayan Calendar and the opinions of the Mayan Timekeepers and elders have been generally ignored by pseudo-Mayanists. We have been told to expect a birthday and a cosmic hurricane for the next 5,200 years. Obviously, the childish mentality that often subsitutes for spirtuality in the New Age world decided to focus on the birthday and support the cosmic fairy tale created by John Major Jenkin. Meanwhile, the hard evidence tells us that the prophesised energetic changes for a period of transition lasting 25 years is happening now and people should be re-directing their efforts to teach people how to cope in a vastly different cosmic environment.



Comet Caesar - Dark Comet in 2012?
Survive 2012, November 2009
"When considering what might cause us grief in 2012, few if any researchers consider the start of the Mayan Long Count calendar to have any importance. This is surprising, because the reason for the calendar beginning on August 11 3114BC might contain clues about 2012 itself. After all, the Mayan culture did not exist 5,000 years ago, so either they randomly chose an ancient date on a whim, or an earlier civilization was behind the calendar, and they knew something important occurred on that date.

What could happen in 3114BC, and also in 2012AD? No civilization has lasted that long, so they are unlikely to be man-made events. Any natural events that occur so infrequently on Earth are virtually impossible to predict (volcanic eruptions for example). So that leaves us with astronomical events. The astrology of the pair of dates has been well studied, so we can rule out alignments of the stars and planets. That leaves the Sun, which we barely understand today, and comets. Is there a comet with a periodicy of 5000 years, due to return in 2012? Without any evidence from 3114BC it is impossible to say. Given that we are now near the end of the Mayan 5th age, could their calendar be designed to cover five orbits of a comet? And end catastrophically in 2012?"

Comment:
Here, I have linked to researcher Robert Bast's website but here is the link to a recent press release: Dark Comet in 2012? Researcher Unravels Potential Doomsday Culprit . The only reason that this theory is getting a mention is because the Mayan Elders are insisting that we will get a change of sun that will coincide with three days of darkness. Historically, there have been quite a few events where day has turned into night and remained that way for a few hours before things have returned to normal. Read Charles Fort if you want historical examples. The recent "dust storms" in Australia focused my attention where at Broken Hill, day turned into night in approx. 40 seconds. The Mayan Elders are adamant that this will happen and it is possible that a comet with a massive debris trail could block the sun for a period of time. However, it must also be stated that our scientists admit that they don't know what makes sunshine, but alternative scientists like Tesla insist that sunshine is a local reaction to frequencies of light from the Sun. The Mayan Elders are not claiming catastrophe, just three days of darkness, but it's diffifcult getting information from them so we await the release of the authentic message of the Mayan Cosmo-Vision supported by The National Mayan Council of Indigenous Elders in Guatemala and presented in the film The Shift of the Ages.



Scientists try to calm '2012' hysteria
As an upcoming action movie fuels Internet rumors, several scientists make public statements: The world will not end in 2012, and Earth is not going to crash into a rogue planet.
LA Times, 17th October 2009
"Is 2012 the end of the world? If you scan the Internet or believe the marketing campaign behind the movie "2012," scheduled for release in November, you might be forgiven for thinking so.

Dozens of books and fake science websites are prophesying the arrival of doomsday that year, by means of a rogue planet colliding with the Earth or some other cataclysmic event.

Normally, scientists regard Internet hysteria with nothing more than a raised eyebrow and a shake of the head. But a few scientists have become so concerned at the level of fear they are seeing that they decided not to remain on the sidelines this time.

"Two years ago, I got a question a week about it," said NASA scientist David Morrison, who hosts a website called Ask an Astrobiologist. "Now I'm getting a dozen a day. Two teenagers said they didn't want to see the end of the world so they were thinking of ending their lives."


Morrison said he tries to reassure people that their fears are groundless, but has received so many inquiries that he has posted a list of 10 questions and answers on the website of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific ( www.astrosociety.org). Titled "Doomsday 2012, the Planet Nibiru and Cosmophobia," the article breaks down the sources of the hysteria and assures people that the ancients didn't actually know more about the cosmos than we do."

Comment:
Unfortunately, 2012 has largely become a huge hoax and the truth relegated to the status of being incidental to the hype. For those who are interested in the opinion of Mayan Elders and other Keepers of Ancient Knowledge, their calendars, of which the Maya have 20, are about how subtle energies, or spacetime, influences the evolution of consciousness. We are being told from many sources that we are in a period of transition that lasts about 25 years, which will be complete in 2012. The changes that are accelerating now, will take us to a new energetic level, that will be associated with a dimensional shift.

What this means is there will be evolutionary changes that will effect humans and our reality. In terms of changes to our daily reality, this will be relatively dramatic, to the extent that there will be an increased bleedthrough of higher dimensional entities. It is now known amongst some scientists that there is another lifeform that lives alongside us in the plasmatic state and they have been long identified by the military and radar operators as the "radar angels". We are talking about "light beings" that have previously been detected in the ultraviolet and the infrared and they are associated with religious, esoteric and metaphysical beliefs. The existence of plasma entities are a scientific fact and the military now refer to them as "Unidentified Aerial Phenomena". Their presence has been generally sporadic in the past, but the dimensional shift taking place now means that they are becoming more and more visible every day and that is why the media are stating that UFO sightings are at "bizarre" levels.

Well, its only going to get more bizarre, as Space Weather is literally delivering us a new version of spacetime. The metaphysical community at large have a poor understanding of what exactly is behind "the veil", which is their description of the higher dimensions that the scientific community has now fully accepted exists and have described by a plethora of different theories. Most of these lightforms are strongly associated with geophysical and atmospheric phenomena and some very good science has taken place in the last 10 - 15 years to identify their characteristics, but unfortunately, there has been very little integration of science and metaphysics. The 2012 Enigma is really about a massive evolutionary change to our reality, but it has been hijacked in efforts to keep people ignorant and fearful. However, it does look like parts of the mainstream are making efforts to reject the fear based hype and I hope to play my part in explaining the evolutionary transition that is most evidently taking place.



Nasa: world will not end in 2012
A Nasa scientist has condemned film producers over a viral marketing campaign that suggests the world will come to and end in 2012.
The Telegraph, 17th October 2009
Sony Pictures set up a website for an organisation called the Institute for Human Continuity which predicts a cataclysmic denouement for Earth three years from now.

It suggests that "after two decades of rigorous research from the world's top astronomers, mathematicians, geologists, physicists, engineers, futurists, we know that in 2012 a series of cataclysmic forces will wreak havoc on our planet". [...]

According to the website scientists have been tracking a previously unknown Planet X which is on the edge of the solar system and on a collision course with Earth.

But the site has been so successful that hundreds of people have been convinced that something terrible is about to befall the planet. Dr David Morrison, a senior scientist at Nasa's Astrobiology Institute, said he had received more than 1,000 inquiries from worried members of the public.

That included teenagers saying they would rather commit suicide than witness the world end. Dr Morrison said the website was "ethically wrong".

But Vikki Luya, Sony's publicity director said: "It is very clear that this site is connected to a fictional movie. This can readily be seen in the logos on the site."

Comment:
Well, there is a battle going on for truth and enlightenment versus fear and darkness. When teenagers start talking about committing suicide, rather than seeing the world end, it reveals the seriousness of the situation. The people who made and are prompting this film are reptiles, but the 2012 hype is being helped along by widespread ignorance of what's really happening.



2012 isn't the end of the world, Mayans insist
AP My Way, 11th October 2009
MEXICO CITY (AP) - Apolinario Chile Pixtun is tired of being bombarded with frantic questions about the Mayan calendar supposedly "running out" on Dec. 21, 2012. After all, it's not the end of the world. Or is it? Definitely not, the Mayan Indian elder insists.

"I came back from England last year and, man, they had me fed up with this stuff." It can only get worse for him. Next month Hollywood's "2012" opens in cinemas, featuring earthquakes, meteor showers and a tsunami dumping an aircraft carrier on the White House. [...]

The question I would ask these guys is, so what?" says Phil Plait, an astronomer who runs the "Bad Astronomy" blog. He says the alignment doesn't fall precisely in 2012, and distant stars exert no force that could harm Earth. "They're really super-duper trying to find anything astronomical they can to fit that date of 2012," Plait said. But author John Major Jenkins says his two-decade study of Mayan ruins indicate the Maya were aware of the alignment and attached great importance to it. "If we want to honor and respect how the Maya think about this, then we would say that the Maya viewed 2012, as all cycle endings, as a time of transformation and renewal," said Jenkins.

Comment:
Unfortunately, the esoteric understanding of what is taking place is generally unclear and major concepts right and wrong have been mixed up so that individuals have to work very hard to unravel the truth of what's happening. Mayan Elders and other Keepers of Ancient Knowledge, as well as metaphysical sources have been very clear that 2012 is an important energetic marker, but something special happening on the 21st December 2012 is extremely unlikely. I note John Major Jenkins has been quoted here, as he has played a major part in promoting the hype but his talk of transformation lacks any meat on the bone. At the end of the day, those who are not spiritually evolved, LOVE DRAMA and this is just another opportunity for some people to get some major kicks. The real truth is that we are facing major evolutionary change and many simply don't understand how they will be effected by the changing energetic environment of Earth.



2012, the end-of-the-world feature film that critics say is a disaster all by itself. See the hilariously OTT trailer here
Daily Mail, 5th October 2009
2012, the end-of-the-world feature film that critics say is a disaster all by itself. See the hilariously OTT trailer here.

In a new two-minute trailer of 2012, directed by Roland Emmerich - the man behind Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, mankind is seen to fight for survival after a prophecy about about an apocalypse. [...]

But as with all apocalyptic movies, there are a lucky few who survive the terror... after Americans appear to be save the day (yet again). It looks, however, as if the CGI experts have been given a completely free hand designing this apocalypse - with the net result that the trailer borders on laughable. Critics in the U.S. are already beginning to describe the movie as a disaster in itself.

It looks, however, as if the CGI experts have been given a completely free hand designing this apocalypse - with the net result that the trailer borders on laughable. The OTT effects and over-dramatic story has come in for some criticism even before the film hits the big screen. If the trailer is anything to go by, we're likely to see every kind of disaster imaginable, all crammed into one big turkey of a film created by a director reknowned for his overboard use of effects.

One critic says of the trailer: 'The 2012 The Worst is Over Movie Clip that recently found its way online is full of the absurd action and grand special effects audiences have come to expect from a Roland Emmerich film. ''At the beginning of the clip we are given a glimpse of the Curtis’ family dynamic present in 2012. As the clip continues, the delivered action is so over-the-top it almost looks like an cartoon.'

Comment:
It looks like people will have something to give them a good laugh and hopefully, that will help to keep the vibration up! But, I am waiting for people to sober up and understand what's really going on...

2012: The end is not near
Cosmic Log, MSNBC, 1st October 2009
"Marketers are escalating the media blitz for the "2012" disaster movie to Defcon 2 tonight with a TV teaser that touts the coming apocalypse. If you watch the two-minute scene, here are two words of advice:

DON'T PANIC!

The teaser is due to run on major broadcast networks as well as scads of cable channels and local stations sometime between 10:50 and 11 p.m. ET/PT, and it's sure to get viewers whipped up in advance of the movie itself, which premieres on Nov. 13.

The flick's premise is that there really is something behind the speculation about an apocalypse supposedly due in 2012. An earlier viral marketing campaign highlighted the fictional "Institute for Human Continuity," which was said to be setting up a lottery for spots in an underground refuge from doomsday.

Unfortunately, not everyone immediately saw through the IHC's TV commercials (or the Facebook group or the Twitter postings or the YouTube channel...).

"The ads seemed very real," Cosmic Log correspondent Darrell Messbarger wrote in an e-mail, "and some of my daughter's friends were in a dead panic over them. Even their parents."

Comment:
I suppose the reaction by some to this TV advert is a reminder that most people live their whole lives in utter fear and that this level of consciousness is easily exploited. However, the simple answer is that if people do not want this kind of exploitation, they can switch off the TV. The article here outlines various 2012 disaster scenarios, provides some debunking info and has plenty of links that may provide more useful 2012 background info.



Carl Calleman - The Mayan Calendar and Money (Video)
Red ice Creations, 9th September 2009

Comment: Well, I noticed this YouTube video [9:59] over at Red Ice Creations (Swedish owners). It must be clearly stated that the Swedish Carl Johan Calleman has his own interpretation of the Mayan Calendar and he emphasises evolutionary change and consciousness. This makes him much more to my liking than other Mayan specialists and the first 4 minutes of this video reflect this emphasis. Despite this, it is on record that Mayan Elders have stated that Calleman's concept of 'days' and 'nights' is NOT genuine Mayan teaching, but this lack of support by genuine Mayan Elders does not seem to be reflected in how Calleman's teaching is perceived. Calleman states that our world is due for a 'makeover' and I truly believe this an understatement. His discussion about money is in terms of world monetary systems, but Calleman like so many people, can only see change in terms of an almighty collapse, rather than controlled evolutionary change influenced by 'higher' human consciousness. See also 9.9.9. and the Mayan Calendar .



2012: Will it be the end of the world as we know it?
Will the world end in 2012 as some believe the calendar of the ancient Maya predicts? Here we examine the fact and the fiction behind the most popular doomsday scenarios.
The Telegraph, 3rd September 2009
"A forthcoming film by Roland Emmerich, the director behind the disaster movies Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, is renewing interest in predictions of a major calamity to strike the Earth on December 21, 2012. The film - 2012 - focuses on a series of disasters which force man to flee the planet in order to survive."

Comment:
This is another pointless piece of journalism promoting a 2012 film, when NASA can't even keep the international space station operational and they are still trying to figure out how to apply protection to spacecraft to keep the occupants safe from high levels of cosmic radiation for long distance space travel. Well, there does seem to be a tremendous effort to make 2012 seem like a 1-day wonder. This is ignoring a genuine Mayan & indigenous predictions of a 25 year period of transition that is nearly complete. We are facing a new Age lasting 5,200 years being dominated by space or the ether, which can now been verified by the new phenomena of Space Weather with major scientific verification provided by NASA and the space community. It is apparent that this is also associated with a dimensional shift, so the notion of major disaster scenarios to take place in 2012 will prove to be completely wrong and are now passé.



The Astronomical Insignificance of Maya Date 13.0.0.0.
Dartmouth College, August 2009

"As the year 2012 approaches, students of Maya calendrics are increasingly looking for some underlying significance to the ending of one so-called “Grand Cycle” and the beginning of another."

Comment:
I came across this document written by Vincent H. Malmström but once again I am disappointed that an Emeritus Professor of Geography, decides to pick holes on someone else's weak arguments with equally weak arguments and that somehow, this is a reflection on the veracity of Mayan prophecies and their calendars. Personally, I would be interested in finding intellectuals who have actually understood what Mayan Elders and indigenous sources have clearly stated about the evolution of spacetime and the arrival of a New Age dominated by space or the aether. The Mayan elders talk about a period of transition lasting twenty-five years which we now must realise coincides with the onset of increasingly extreme Space Weather and major potential problems for technological societies.

Mayan Elders talk about various cycles of time where changes can be expected at certain points but they know that in the evolutionary process, there is NEVER an exact repeat. This is the principle that underlies chaos theory and the Lorentz's Butterfly fractal that can be derived from data that appears meaningless. Mayan Elders realise that we are experiencing evolutionary change but they also know "it's not like turning on a light" and instantaneously something happens. They have talked about Earth being cleansed and the arrival of the "defenders of the Earth", meanwhile UFO sightings are at an all time high. We have major fulfillment of Mayan prophecy and yet Mayan "researchers" and their critics have missed major aspects of their teaching and are waiting around for something to happen in 2012 when the action is taking place NOW! I do not claim to be a Mayan expert, but I pay attention to what the Mayan and other 'Keepers of Ancient Knowledge' have to say and I understand more than most about the true nature of our reality.

It is a FACT that over the last 20 plus years, our planet has been swamped with solar, cosmic, galactic and intergalactic energies to the point where there is real panic in certain quarters and desperation has set in to persuade the sheeple that Earth requires A GLOBAL SHIELD for protection under the guise that our planet is warming, when the facts show this is not the case. However, it is evident that something major is happening when the US Air Force announces that GPS is expected to start "breaking down" in 2010 as Space Weather is generating a plethora of new atmospheric phenomena that technically can no longer be compensated for. It is my belief that knowledge based in the scientific disciplines of cosmology, astronomy, plasma physics, atmospheric physics, geophysics, geomagnetism, and bioelectromagnetism to name a few are required to understand the significance of 2012 prophecies and this has to be integrated with ancient sources of knowledge that have been passed down as metaphysical teaching. Therefore, I am interested to know who the intellectuals are that have actually understood what the Maya and other Keepers of Ancient Knowledge have attempted to convey. Therefore, let's say I am not impressed with this offering.



When the Mayan calendar ends 2012, what will happen to us?
Sun Media, 25th March 2009
"For those who miss the good old days of the easy going 20th Century, a shrill reminder of Y2K is back. At least the mounting fear that an upcoming date could be the death of us all - or at least a very bad day for some. Late last week, Professor John Beddington, the UK government's chief scientist, warned a sustainable development conference that a "perfect storm" of food shortages, scarce water and insufficient energy resources would land on the world's doorstep in 2030. But for those souls who can't wait that long to panic, then mark 2012 on your Armageddon-out-of-here calendar. A growing number of books and blogs revolve around Dec. 21, 2012, when the 5,125-year long count cycle of the Mayans' calendar draws to an abrupt close."

Comment:
Recently, my attention has been focused on the reason for the 21st December 2012 end-date of the Mayan Calendar. From what I understand, it seems there has been too much emphasis on the end-date, so that people have failed to pay attention to the 25 year period of transition that leads up to the start of a New World Age. Therefore the importance of the message that we needed to use this time for 'purification', 'cleansing', 'purging', 'quickening' and 'warning', given by many indigenous Elders has been overshadowed. It does seem though that there has been some encouragement for people to work with their energy fields which has led to some awful people with knowledge trying to make lots of money from others ignorance. (One example are a Danish couple encouraging people to close down their chakras so that their heart chakra can be enhanced, I know because I met someone who could not work out why she had lost some of her powers and people were paying good money for this act of vandalism on their energy fields too.) There have also been sources encouraging people to use their consciousness to work with the Earth and the need to use the power of intent to send energy down to the Earth thereby programming the Earth with messages of balance. I actually think that those that are capable of this have been doing this automatically due to my own experience of waking up in the middle of the night to experience myself as an energy conduit which was totally incredible, but my experience of the energy could not be compared to anything taught in the New Age world and could only be more closely compared to ancient Vedic beliefs which I knew nothing about at the time. The message that the 'veil is lifting' has played out very well in the metaphysical/New Age world but I can't find anybody that predicted that the 'orb' phenomena and 'pillars of light' would occur. I realised that there would be an electromagnetic flood of plasma and understood the importance of the octahedron/diamond sacred geometry but I was still shocked by the phenomena of 'diamond rain'. The message of a two way traffic of plasma entities and a 'changing of the guard' has been given in Kryon channelled messages but largely lost on the crowd. Obviously, there is lots more going on but that is why I wrote a book. So all the manufactured hysteria about 1 day is just pathetic when we consider the arrival of the 'The Fifth Sun' or 'New World Age' dominated by ether/space. Therefore the importance of the announcements from NASA that the Earth is lowering our magnetic shields to oncoming Space Weather, the solar wind and Sun's magnetic field is flagging therefore reducing shielding around our solar system. This means that we will have to rely on our own magnetic energy fields for our successful evolutionary progression. My attention has been really focused on those who have taken esoteric teachings and repackaged them to appeal to people's egos. The Universal process of selecting humans for evolutionary progression is only interested in the strength and quality of your energy field and how much money you have paid in the pursuit of this esoteric knowledge/energy techniques will be totally irrelevant. Hence, whilst the truth is known about these 'End Times' the spiritually unaware have their attention diverted elsewhere. So, guess who is doing the loudest apocalyptic doomsdaying over the last few years, the "global warming" fraternity who despite the serious political and business support are being seriously hampered by natural forces like the Sun and inclement weather.



Many Dutch prepare for 2012 apocalypse
UPI News, 23rd June 2008
"AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, June 23 (UPI) -- Thousands of people in the Netherlands say they expect the world to end in 2012, and many say they are taking precautions to prepare for the apocalypse. The Dutch-language de Volkskrant newspaper said it spoke to thousands of believers in the impending end of civilization, and while theories on the supposed catastrophe varied, most tied the 2012 date to the end of the Mayan calendar, Radio Netherlands reported Monday."

Comment:
The Mayan calendars do not predict the end of the world but a transition to New Age dominated by space or the aether. Spiritual leaders generally have no clue what this means on this planet and that is one of the reasons I wrote my book, "Tuning the Diamonds: Electromagnetism & SpirituaL Evolution".
