Battlestar E.L.E.: Extinction or Elevation Event?

June 24, 2011

Human 'cosmophobia' given expression in disaster movies

SciFi epics are all the rage these days. Television and the internet regularly screen such marvels of CGI (computer-generated imaging) as the amazing 1950s classic, ‘The Day The Earth Stood Still’ rereleased 2008, and Dennis Quaid’s (2004) ‘Day After Tomorrow’. What they have in common are scenes of human extinction, the battle for Earth against cosmic forces; an unprepared planet at the mercy of the Final Frontier. Even more heroic — human ingenuity in the face of impending disaster — were earlier blockbusters like the classic (1972) Bruce Dern ‘Silent Running’, Roland Emmerich’s (director of Day After Tomorrow) Independence Day (1996) and the Bruce Willis spacetale, Armageddon, 1998, the latter depicting incoming deep space objects of massive proportions. Independence Day served to insert the acronym ELE (extinction-level event) into popular idiom. Conflated by huge world interest in the zero hour of cultural calendar systems in December 2012, the human imagination soars.

Comet Elenin: incoming at the edge of Mars orbit, but still invisible to backyard Earth telescopes

So it is into this fertile ground that the UFOlogist media and internet doom-blogs plant scary stories about incoming celestial objects: for instance, the current preoccupation with:
comet C/2010 X1 Elenin (discovered 10-12-10)
comet C/2011 L3 McNaught (his 68th discovery)
and stray wanderers from the asteroid belt, between Mars and Jupiter. There is even an acronym for them: PHAs: potentially-hazardous asteroids.

It is true, comet Elenin, discovered December 10 2010 by Russian astrometrist Leonid Elenin, appeared to take American space-sweeping probes by surprise; the Russian announcement prompted the backdated release of a document detailing NASA’s preparations for (potentially) destructive deep-space objects in near-earth orbit (NEO), seen in the Letter from the White House last October, supposedly before Elenin was discovered by the Russian astronomer. However the Obama Administration’s budget request for NASA for 2011 called for near-quadrupling of the 2010 budget for NEO-surveillance from $5.8million to $20.3million. So it is likely there was already knowledge ‘within the system’ of an impending threat.

Not all the Elenin-hype is ballistic. Some respected names gathered in Honolulu mid-June, to discuss the significance of Elenin’s earth-grazing orbit later this year on September 11 (10th anniversary of 9/11) and October 28 — coinciding with the end-date of the Mayan calendar (Carl Calleman version). The Camelot Roundtable Elenin video Conference, June 24th, was hosted by Kerry Cassidy, featuring Richard Hoagland, Dr Joseph Farrell, Keith Hunter, Dr Carl Johan Calleman, and Andy Lloyd.

Earth alone against the Cosmos

“We live in nervous times, and conspiracy theories and predictions of disaster are more popular than ever. I like to use the word cosmophobia for this growing fear of astronomical objects and phenomena, which periodically runs amok on the Internet. Ironically, in pre-scientific times, comets were often thought to be harbingers of disaster, mostly because they seemed to arrive unpredictably -– unlike the movements of the planets and stars, which could be tracked on a daily and yearly basis.”
David Morrison, planetary astronomer and senior scientist at NASA’s Ames Research Center

End-Times Scenario
There are several versions of the Elenin story on the internet, not least that of the believers in its causing a pole reversal or blackout of the sun. However, astronomical observation has thus far estimated Elenin’s mass to be not larger than recent historical comets.

Elenin emergency window: preparing for underground living in the Ozarks

“The bottom line is this: Comet C/2010 X1 Elenin is coming, and it will pass by Earth at an extremely safe distance -– 100 times the distance from Earth to the Moon. It will not be changing direction between now and then, it will not exert any gravitational effect on Earth, its magnetic field is nonexistent and there are no Star Destroyers cruising in its wake. The biggest effect it will have on Earth is what we are able to learn about it as it passes –- after all, it is a visitor from the far reaches of our solar system and we won’t be seeing it again for a very, very long time.”
Jason Major, The UniverseToday

It is curious, therefore, that NASA’s WISE telescope, the Wide-field Infrared survey Explorer (launched December 2009) had its NEO-scanning/sky mapping telescope ‘shut down’ in February 2011, after only a year in orbit. NASA/JPL announced it would be in ‘hibernation until needed’.

Might one suggest that NASA is not giving the full story? After all even we, hoi polloi, the uninitiated masses, know that solar eruptions and increasingly frequent coronal mass ejections (CMEs) have a trigger effect on communications, both on the electromagnetic field of terrestrial networks and satellites in orbit.

Meanwhile, back at the Ranch…where were all the crop circles? Why weren’t they signaling their annual messages in code?

The Late Crop Circle season of 2011

Britain — in particular, Wessex and the southwest — had a remarkably dry spring; April was the hottest on record; grain in wheatfields was not swelling for lack of rain, the ground was cracking: a phenomenon usually restricted to northern European farming communities in France and Spain. May turned wet and cool: a little late to quench parched soil or fill shrunken seedheads. English field crops were looking a little like north African desert-paddies. There were more inspiring crop circles in Italy than in Oxfordshire.

The farming community in England was on the point of raising a cheer because so very few (11 total) circles of intricate design had appeared in Wiltshire and Hampshire during April and May. Perhaps they might survive a whole season from planting until harvest, without their crops being trampled upon by sightseers…

And then, just as the longest day – solstice/June 21st – approached, things started hotting up. Two meaningful designs –seen to be astronomically connected– showed up on June 18th: one at Louth in Lincolnshire near the Humber estuary (rather far away from the usual Wiltshire hub), sporting a telescopic lens with three crescent moons; and the other at Kings Somborne, Hampshire — avidly pounced on and analyzed by the croppie community for its clear depiction of the inner solar system — but showing a couple of ‘intruders’. Two nights later, four more materialized out of the corn overnight on solstice itself. These were, as expected, back in the Wiltshire heartland. Croppies breathed a sigh of relief.

The great trilithons of Stonehenge are renowned for being inaccessibile most of the year, but the bronze age astronomical stone clock is famously opened to the public and special interest groups for their celebration of the rising sun over the heel stone at dawn on summer solstice. So it was fortuitous that two of the four crop circles appearing on June 20/21 (at Winterbourne Stoke, near Stonehenge) –seemed to arrive just in time for that human solstitial ritual.

While the Stonehenge formations at Winterbourne Stoke were interesting, it was the earlier motifs of the inner solar system and lunar symbolism which caught the attention of the analysts. Some interpeters have suggested increasing earth tremors in a longterm timeframe (including dates extending through 2012-13-14).There has been a rash of speculation on Facebook. In the scientific domain, veteran crop circle detective-mathwiz-numerologist Red Collie –Dr. Horace R. Drew– was quick to come up with an astro scenario for the ‘inner solar system’ Cow Drove Hill formation at Kings Somborne, using NASA/JPL’s near-earth object imaging program, reproduced as a single image here for June 26th, 2011; courtesy CropCircleConnector and NASA/JPL. Collie feels something is imminent this weekend: in the solstitial period between June 24-27, 2011.

He likens the diagram to the 2009 astrolabe crop circle formed in three phases at Milk Hill below the White Horse at Alton Barnes…

‘…an astronomical event predicted at Milk Hill in June 2009, where some “mystery object” was supposed to suddenly brighten not far from the orbit and location of Mars in June of 2011, after a five-planet alignment in early June’
Dr Horace Drew — ‘Red Collie’

There was indeed a five-planet alignment in our dawn skies in the month of May and early June. And comets Elenin and McNaught are headed our way. Elenin is presently clearing the outer perimeter of Mars’ orbit. Intruder number one.

By his reckoning, [with the help of NASA’s NEO generation], the solar system orbits and the inner planets’ positions indicated in the crop circle plot to planetary positions ranging between the dates of June 21-27, 2011. Collie also suggested that the contemporary crop appearance in Lincolnshire with its three crescent moons “and a spiral symbol, suggesting perhaps three days later on June 21”.

I tend rather to believe that, as earth-wisdom and ancient belief systems were accustomed to likening ‘moons’ to months, the Humber estuary formation at Louth is more likely to be directing our attention (through the ‘scope) to three months’ hence: to a time in late September 2011 when, according to the JPL graphic prediction, above, comet Elenin will be nearing its closest approach to Earth orbit i.e. on its outward journey to deep space, it will graze our planetary path within 0.2AU of Earth, at just under 2million miles away (or 1,860,000 miles) along our path round the sun, just before we fly through the debris of its retreating tail. While, according to NASA scientists, quoted, the comet’s tail may not produce fireworks, it might very well affect our weather systems. So far Spaceweather has had very little to say about that. Again, we shall have to wait and see.

Others have seen yesterday’s earthquake in Japan as a sign of confirmation. [The June 23rd tremor was a Richter 6.7 and no loss of life was reported]. In realtime, sunspot 1236 erupted on June 21st, ejecting a CME earthwards, expected June 24th. Both NOAA and SpaceWeather predict geomagnetic storms. The BBC is forecasting a heatwave for England and Wales!

Part of the ‘intruder’ conundrum may be resolved in a last-minute ‘surprise discovery’ by NASA for Monday next week:

ASTEROID FLYBY: Newly-discovered asteroid 2011MD will pass only 12,000 kilometers (7,500 miles) above Earth’s surface on Monday, June 27th.

NASA analysts say there is no chance the space rock will strike Earth. Nevertheless, the encounter is so close that Earth’s gravity will sharply perturb the asteroid’s trajectory Spaceweather

Intruder number two.

We may indeed be in for a rough spell of spaceweather, and given that ‘Earth’s gravity will sharply perturb the asteroid’s trajectory’ — that’s another way of saying it might very well come closer than they think. Besides, our Moon coasts round us at a mean distance of 239,000 miles. Asteroid ‘Doc'[2011MD] will graze us inside moon orbit 32 times closer than the moon herself. Even without earth’s gravitational pull, it means the asteroid will pass within two earth atmospheres of Earth (the thermosphere, highest of earth’s atmospheric layers, reaches to a depth of 6,000km from earth. The asteroid will ‘fly-by’ at 12,000km). That’s pretty close. Spaceweather forecasters must have thought that, too, as their announcement describes its passage as ‘above’ us, rather than the usual astronomical (impersonal) ‘passage by’ us.

Westwoods Maltese Cross with deer-heads/vesica piscis: June 21st crop motif, suggesting peaceful intent and awareness of the sacred, will see us through

We on the surface are, however, becoming more aware as a planetary community and throughout the last few months of terrestrial storms and seismic upheaval, have gained experience as a human family to pull together both physically (with world aid agencies helping the stricken) and psychically (through a process of planetary unification, meditation, or Unity Consciousness) and we have seen how the consciousness of belief/oneness can mediate some of the worse-case scenarios. Consciousness-raising networks are even suggesting using crop circle motifs as a meditation focus. So, amidst human turmoil, there is yet hope.

Several interpretations have appeared on the internet and YouTube, but this video by Joan Wheaton gives an excellent insight into this solstitial message from the Light/orbs.
Thank you, Joan-ShumNYabai.

The battle for Earth is not precisely the best metaphor: a metaphorical concept of peace is better than one of war. And we are learning to appreciate and care for our fragile eco-world in the nick of time, because –unless we want to live underground on the Moon or in Silent Running-like bubbles on Mars — it’s the only one we’ve got. Let us pray that our Collective Consciousness — Humanity’s Oversoul — epitomized by our wonderful crop circle shorthand, is still aiming for our Highest Good.

11:II:11 Navigating the Vortex: our Quantum Leap

February 12, 2011

Vortex, maelström, whirlpool: Nature's basic mechanism for transporting mass and energy effectively

“Nature seems to be a Book written in the Language of Mathematics” Galileo (1564-1642)

As communicators, we bloggers may sometimes feel we have been speaking but the words are not coming from inside our bodies. The words have been coming from somewhere else…

“For several months, we have been moving forward and are being released in small increments. We are in the birth canal –the tunnel– and in that space it is near impossible to ‘see’ anything. We feel we are not connected to anything. Alone in the tunnel, we have been traveling on a raft with no wind behind us, no oars and in still waters, with no-one to left or right. But now we are moving forward and this new movement is creating the strange feeling of being in two places at once.” Karen Bishop Emerging Earth Angels

Lightworker Karen Bishop suggests that the sensation of being lost, disconnected and alone will pass as humanity moves through this intermediary stage and into the great mass awakening to follow. This new sensation of bliss and purpose comes as soon as we “are enmeshed in our new spaces in a higher dimension.”

Schrödinger's Cat: quantum uncertainty principle (1935) reduced to the absurd

Higher dimensions, Alternate Reality, parallel Universes; the quantum paradox of ‘many worlds’: an unending conundrum of being in two places at the same time. Particle physicists pursuing the ‘God’ particle, Higgs-Boson, endlessly around circular underground tunnels on two continents. What do these concepts have in common?

Uncertainty principle: math simplifies quantum reality

Higher dimensions –or alternate ones– are presently the preoccupation of particle physicists, quantum cosmologists and proponents of the holographic universe in our search for the meaning of Reality. Physics, cosmology and mathematics are crossing the boundaries between science and philosophy.

New Age lightworkers are becoming more assured and vocal in their prediction of a mass awakening in human consciousness. And it looks as if science is beginning to agree.

Max Tegmark, astrophysicist, cosmologist and professor in the physics faculty at MIT in Cambridge, Mass likes the idea of parallel universes: the quantum mechanics (QM) paradox of a particle’s ability to be in two places at the same time. He sees mathematics as our ultimate connection to reality. “Math is not something we invented, but something we are continually rediscovering.”

“We now have equations that describe how light behaves, how gravity behaves, how atoms behave. We can express the speed of light in mathematical terms. It is beautiful. In math we capture the essence of a very complicated Universe out there.”

What if we were to see the Universe not as an entity that exists inside space and time, but that space and time exist inside it?Max Tegmark, Prof. of Physics, MIT

Anton Zeilinger, author of Dance of the Photons 2005, translated into German as Einsteins Spuk, ‘Einstein’s Spook’ or ‘Ghost’, has a different view. He currently heads a team at the University of Vienna who have ‘teleported’ light photons 600 meters under the river Danube. He and his Austrian team of photon-busters have proved (in their ‘double-slit’ particle experiment) a basic quantum theory that we change the nature of reality simply by observing it.

“(Quantum Theory of Reality) is exciting, it is extremely precise, it is mathematically beautiful; and it describes everything. It just doesn’t make sense.” Anton Zeilinger

Quantum cosmologist, Leonard Susskind, professor of theoretical physics at Stanford University since 1979, says the beauty of math’s connection to reality is its simplicity. It becomes easier to describe reality with mathematics. “As you probe deeper, mathematics becomes the ONLY reality.”

But in sounding the depths of the cosmos, he uncovered many unanswered questions, e.g., the popular assignment of black holes as the bad guys of the Universe. He and Stephen Hawking discussed the black hole theory in 1988 when Hawking first published his Brief History of Time. “It changed my life.”

” I believed he was wrong. I spent the next 20 years working through the evidence to prove lt.”

Hawking suggested black holes were places in the cosmos which swallowed everything. Nothing escapes after it has breached the rim — event horizon — of a black hole. All light, matter, energy, information is sucked in by its (theoretical) huge gravitational pull and is lost. Nothing comes back out.

“Hawking had to be wrong. I refused to believe everything could disappear. We can’t allow information to be ‘lost’. Instead, how about if the horizon of a back hole is 3D like a hologram capturing 3D reality of everything that falls into it?”

In 1993 he and his graduate students announced their holographic principle of the Universe: that if all reality were indeed a hologram — a 3D model of everything captured as an image of our reality — maybe black holes were images of events taking place very far away: back in time; that our reality is a projection of a holographic record stored at the outer reaches of the Universe. The team became bold. They called a consortium of the world’s top physicists to a conference at Stanford in November 2009 and Susskind invited Stephen Hawking to speak. By then, Hawking was talking about ‘sideways’ or lateral time. But he was interested in Susskind’s holographic theory. And Susskind’s team was about to put it to the test.

“He didn’t get it. You don’t get it. Nobody gets it. But we may be about to prove that the whole of creation is a hologram.”

If the Stanford team is right, their model brings quantum cosmology, the ‘Many Worlds’ interpretation and New Age spiritualism into the same arena: We are what we believe, what we think and how we see our own Reality.

Or even more spiritual in concept, that Susskind’s ‘something stored at the outer reaches of the Universe’ might be the Intelligent Being/Source from whom mystics and devotees seek enlightenment.

Does this mean that the Cosmos is coming full circle?

We are having an intelligent conversation with the Universe.

The Universe may be providing its own answer to the question.

The Sun and solar system gravitate each year to and from Galactic center (of the Milky Way), coming closest in mid-December. It is a point on the ecliptic roughly in the constellation of Sagittarius from which (in the view of many esoteric disciplines and world religions) we emerged in the dark recesses at the beginning of time. In the view of some (physicists, cosmologists) Galactic Center is a black hole. To others (esoteric/New Age science), it is the source of a massive emission of photons, beaming information towards us, a ‘photon belt’ affecting Earth and human DNA. And we are circling in an irrevocable spiral back towards the point where on December 21, 2012 Earth’s orbit in the Solar System, the Sun’s position on the ecliptic and the center of our Galaxy will line up as one.

We may reach this galactic vortex unscathed. In the mythology of the Maya, this is Hunab Ku, our galactic heart; a sign that the Mayan Long Count Calendar is complete and that Mankind will start a new Count of Time.

In world mythology, earth was ground out from the mill of the Vortex, the great Maelström, the cosmic whirlpool. And so, in the eyes of the Maya at least, we are returning to that vortex, that pool of creation.

According to some Mayan scholars, we entered the last Underworld (phase of human evolutionary Consciousness), the Universal Underworld yesterday.

In the eyes of Karen Bishop and other New Age lightworkers who have been working tirelessly to prepare for the ‘Shift’ (in human consciousness), the runup to our rendezvous with the heart of our Galaxy is a sign of our Ascension, ‘coming home’, maturing as a species. To the fearful, solstice 2012 could mean chaos, collapse of Earth systems, erratic solar and stellar behavior; even a physical shift in earth’s poles.

The Sun, our partner up there in the immediate galactic neighborhood, has indeed been leading us a dance lately. Solar activity is on the increase.

Tiny solar burst crop circle in rice at Magelang, Java January 29th, 2011

We are currently headed for solar maximum, but it’s not sunspots –traditionally seen as the barometer for solar minima and maxima— that have featured, but strong warnings of solar flares disturbing our geomagnetic field.

NOAA’s solar X-ray alert system [view sidebar at right] has been signaling ‘major storm’, ‘active’. Twin crop circles* in Java in late January were followed by a third small design reminiscent of last season’s Wiltshire solar flare warnings.

Spaceweather alert.

And last weekend the Sun itself joined the 3D holographic universe.

Last Sunday, dubbed Superbowl SUNday by NASA and the media, February 6th 2011 marked the day when the space agency’s twin STEREO satellites locked into orbit round the sun and started projecting 3D pictures of both sides of the sun back to Earth.

Affectionately known as STEREOAhead and STEREOBehind, the craft were launched in 2006 on a mission to study solar flares [coronal mass ejections, CMEs] to predict solar storms headed towards earth. The two craft reached their final position [in ‘opposition’ to each other, 180ºdegrees apart] so NASA, SOHO, and SDA are now combined to beam a wholistic continuous view of the sun back to earthbound systems.

“We expect great advances in theoretical solar physics and space weather forecasting.”

Heliophiles are jumping for joy. The 3D stereo images arrived just in time to document new coronal holes forming on the sun’s far side, which are heading to face towards us.

STEREO went into orbit round the SUN last Superbowl SUNday

STEREO is an acronym for Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory. The two satellites now join forces with SOHO [NASA’s Solar & Heliospheric Observatory] which has carried the load of solar projections to date.

“In the past an active sunspot could emerge on the far side of the sun completely hidden from Earth. Then, the sun’s rotation would turn that region towards our planet, spitting flares and clouds of plasma, with little warning.”

Now, in the runup to solar maximum, 2012, these first 3D stereo images bring into focus our need to prepare for possible solar disruption to the geomagnetic field and earth’s electromagnetically-powered systems.

Coronal Holes, imaged from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory

Coronal holes on the sun’s surface are the source of open magnetic field lines from which high-speed solar wind particles stream out into space. This fast solar wind travels at approximately 800 km/s [about 1.8 million mph].

When this surge reaches Earth’s magnetosphere, predictably three or four days later, some spectacular fireworks can occur. Usually the spaceweather team tries not to alarm earth populations more than they really have to. So electromagnetic disruptions to power supplies and weather systems are downplayed. Aurora borealis –northern lights– are emphasized instead.

UV image of same solar holes: coronal flares heading earthwards

“After traveling through space for a few days the particles will impact the Earth and may spark the formation of some auroral activity for lucky spectators” NASA

In NASA’s study ‘of the nature of coronal mass ejections’ the agency is not responsible for reporting on physical repercussions strong emissions [M-class flares] may have on communications, logistical and transportation systems. There are three categories of flares, X-class, M-class and C-class. C-class flares are small, with few noticeable consequences in the geomagnetic field. M-class flares are medium-sized, capable of causing brief radio blackouts, affecting Earth’s polar regions. Minor radiation storms sometimes follow an M-class flare. The largest, X-class, flares are ‘Superstorms’, major events that can trigger planet-wide radio blackouts and long-lasting radiation storms. Earth’s last major Superstorm blackout was the Carrington Event of 1859 when telegraph systems behaved erratically. But at the time the electric light had not yet been invented. **

150 years later our systems are massively dependent on NOT having magnetic surges play havoc with our electrical supply. Not to mention our telephone, television, cells, blackberries, macBooks, iPods, iPads… you get the picture.

So, is our Universe shaking its quantum hologram fist in our faces and saying ‘shape up or else…’? [In that context, we, reflections of the Intelligent Source, may be setting ourselves the test to see if we are ‘intelligent’/evolved enough to pass it].

Maelström, vortex of the Norwegian Sea

Or, is the vortex going to win? Is the black hole going to pull us in? Are we navigating the cosmic whirlpool alone with no-one to save us from drowning?

Mythology and spiritual belief predict Mankind has enough presence of mind to make a quantum leap in consciousness, to save itself. History says it’s never too late to start anew. Native American and Maya traditions say now is a good time.

I hope we’re listening.

Hole in the Galaxy: Touching Source

January 8, 2010

Milky Way Galaxy: Galactic HQ

We’ve done it again. We touched base with Galactic Center on January 3rd and now we in our orbit round the sun are spiraling away, at a daily rate of four light minutes, off in the opposite direction. It is the ultimate cosmic paradox. As our days get longer, as the sun gives us four minutes more light each day until June, we are retreating from the point in the Milky Way Galaxy from which [in the view of many esoteric disciplines/world religions] we emerged. And to which, in an every-decreasing spiral, we are returning.

It takes eight minutes for light from the sun to reach us, and our solar life-giver, our connection to the stars from which we as stardust emerged, does this little wobble towards Galactic Center, the (w)hole in the middle of the Universe, every year at this time.

Look at it this way: Three days into our New Year, we came within eight light minutes of touching Source.

Our orbit does not come into such close proximity every year – this year is special – as were 1987, 1998 – and we will be back to reconnect with the Hole in the Cosmos at noon UTC on December 21st, 2012 when our orbit, the Sun’s position on the ecliptic and the Galactic Hole will line up exactly. That’s what we’re really aiming for.

It is for this reason that a lot of attention is focused right now on the prophecies foretold by the Elders of the Maya; their calendar which began in 3113BC comes full cycle on that date.

The Maya were like the Sumerians, the ancient Egyptians, and Judaic, Norse and Hindu traditions in their view of time. Their calendars were less a method of calculating days, moons and years, more a way of watching the movement of Creation. It was the Gregorian calendar of Roman Catholicism’s Pope Gregory XIII which in 1582 set us calculating by the sun, and which ultimately fixed our view of the Cosmos as a giant timepiece.

There is another view.

Albert Einstein and his lesser-known (younger) contemporary, Russian astrophysicist Nikolai Kozirev, had similar but diverging ideas. Dr Einstein’s general theory of relativity gave birth to modern quantum physics, seeing time-space as a spiraling continuum; Prof. Kozirev proved the existence of a tangible energy source within the Universe which he called ‘ether’ that surrounds us, affects us and with which we merge. Quantum physics talks about this ether as ‘dark energy’, zero-point energy, ‘virtual particles’.

Ether, from Greek aether, means ‘shining’. Its presence in the Cosmos has long been the subject of Mystery Schools whose teaching of self-mastery disciplines or the secret way to become an Ascended Master finally reveals itself as a key to understanding what we – the only ones of the human species to live through the actual experience of planetary awakening – are going through right now in these End Times.

Enough ether in a lightbulb to boil the oceans

Ether – aka Chi, prana, akasha, or if you prefer the scientific, ‘vacuum flux’, ‘quantum medium’ – is all around.

According to mainstream Physics, there is enough ‘ether‘ or zero point energy (ZPE) contained within the vacuum of a single lightbulb to bring all the world’s oceans to boiling point. And it is free… If we only knew how to harness and use it!

In the Quantum Physics world, all four of the basic force fields known to current thinkers: gravity, electromagnetism, weak nuclear force and strong nuclear force are in fact different forms of ether/ZPE. We are swimming in it. And, according to newest thinking, its point of emergence into our cosmic Universe is that hole at Galactic Center which we just flew past.

We are experiencing a meeting of minds: the belief systems of ancestral myth, religious thought and ancient calculation, are coming together with the current scientific take on our position in the Cosmos.

Science fiction meets science fact.

Now that we have narrowed down the parameters, we even have a date for Ascension.

Lightworkers around the globe smile and say the process has been going on for some time; aging ‘baby boomers’, last representatives of the ‘sixties hippie generation, have been lying in wait for just this moment to unfold; but what is exciting about the new ‘energy’ is that everybody is beginning to feel it.

Back to the Maya and their concept of the Time spiral.

By measuring the flow of evolution through a series of nine Ages, the Maya predicted Man’s quantum leaps through Great Cycles of ever-decreasing size until he reaches the moment of rebirth, reunion with Galactic Center, or Ascension. That moment of planetary enlightenment is a culmination of the present ongoing process of evolution in consciousness. In the view of an ever-increasing number of spiritual and New Age groups (I like to call it the Group Mind or Superconsciousness, because we are seeing its influence all around) this spiritual evolution is scheduled to be complete by winter solstice 2012. Each day now brings new evidence of its happening all around us. Spiritual consciousness, a change in personal attitudes, is happening so fast now it could all be over long before then!

Ages of Man: we enter the Age of Aquarius

Astrologically the 25,860-year ‘Platonic cycle’, through which Earth and all Creation moves from the moment of birth, is split into twelve Ages marked by the zodiacal signs. Each age traditionally shifts with our transition from volcanic rock, through creation of oceans, through embryo life, simple mammals. We, the human species, have already evolved through and transcended the last four of these Ages, each approximately 2200 years in length, catalogued in Earth’s great chronicles: the Bible, Egyptian Book of the Dead, Sanskrit Akashic Records. They flow with the precession of the equinoxes through that eon’s zodiac sign: Gemini (Man’s twin birth, the cloning of Eve from Adam’s rib), Taurus (Judaic Age of Golden Calf, Moses), Aries (Age of warlike expansion of Assyrian, Greek, Roman empires) Pisces (Age of Christianity). On February 14th last year we entered the Age of Aquarius, long heralded as the New Age.

In the Maya Long Count calendar, each successive age in human evolution is 20 times briefer than the one immediately preceding. I have written more fully about this in Hologram of Time and Sacred Endings. In essence, we are now in the last ‘Underworld’ or world spiral of time which began in 1999 and will end in 2012. As at November 8th, 2009, we entered the Sixth Night of the Galactic Wave Movement – the eighth of the nine Mayan levels – predicted to bring about the most significant transformation of consciousness ever in the history of mankind. These are exciting times to be alive. The spiral is contagious.

Elegant natural Phi spiral of the Nautilus shell

Kozirev saw all energy as part of this spiral: a spiral of time, space, creation, energy. The cells of all organisms grow in an asymmetrical spiral, from miniscule plankton to the Blue Whale; from the smallest ‘inert’ asteroid to the largest spiral galaxy. He knew that growth expands according to the proportions of sacred geometry, the ‘Golden Mean’, at a predetermined ratio of Fibonacci numbers – the Phi-spiral, called by the Greeks the golden ratio.

His theory is now accepted that all space surrounding the earth and within the entire Galaxy spirals clockwise (has right-hand spin). This means that all energy is influenced to spin clockwise as it travels through the physical vacuum. A spinning source emits energy; and a spinning source with more than one form of movement, such as a star, a black hole (or wormhole) rotating while also orbiting within a galaxy, produces a dynamic form of energy called torsion. This phenomenon allows torsion waves to propel through space instead of simply staying in one place. Kozirev suggested that torsion fields like gravity and electromagnetism are capable of moving from one place to another through the universe at ‘superluminal velocity’, that is, at speeds greater than light.

In his field of Exotic Physics, it is said that an impulse moving directly through the fabric of space-time at superluminal velocity (and separate from gravity or electromagnetism) – like the photon energy source emanating from the Hole at Galactic Center which is transmitting a pulsating energy beam towards Earth in increasing strength as we spiral closer – has direct influence on our cell growth, our spiraling DNA.

Our DNA is in fact being updated.

Kozirev’s ether, the clockwise torsion of Galactic Center, is not only creating a beckoning Stargate, but it is altering our physical bodies to absorb energy from this photon source, while the combined forces of ancient mythical, spiritual and New Age disciplines alter our minds. We are being prepared, whether we like it or not, for our move from the mundane to the celestial.

Unlike James Cameron’s Avatar, we are not human minds in an alien body searching for truth; rather we are becoming our own embodiment of Avatar, in the Sanskrit meaning, ‘one who descends from the heavens’ to lift ourselves aloft.

Just as we are uniting in the physical as an evolved (human) race populating the third planet from our orbiting sun, we are uniting in consciousness to become a single (Group Mind) unit which in the few days remaining of the last Great Cycle is preparing itself to ascend, to become Superconsciousness or Overmind as we return to Source.
