Indonesia Earthquake Triggers Panic But No Tsunami
BANDA ACEH, Indonesia (AP) — A strong earthquake struck Indonesia’s tsunami-ravaged Aceh province Wednesday, shaking buildings as terrified residents fled for higher ground in cars and on foot while police shouted “Tsunami! Tsunami!’‘

Entire families jumped aboard nearby scooters and passing vehicles and sped off, snarling traffic on the main two-lane thoroughfare. Some headed to mosques, whose sturdy foundations and upper floors offered protection from the killer waves in the Dec. 26 disaster. Women screamed and sobbed.

There were no immediate reports of injuries or damage.

The 6.2-magnitude tremor struck about 8:30 p.m. and was centered beneath the Indian Ocean floor, about 65 miles southwest of the provincial capital of Banda Aceh, the Banda Aceh Geophysics Center said.

The U.S. Geological Survey registered slightly different readings, estimating the quake’s magnitude at 5.7 and its epicenter about 50 miles southwest of Banda Aceh. A magnitude-6 quake can cause widespread damage if it is centered in a densely populated area.

The shaking lasted less than five seconds and was felt across a wide swath of Aceh, on the northern tip of Sumatra island. Even before the tremors subsided, police officers and soldiers began shouting ‘Tsunami! Tsunami!’‘ causing mayhem for about a half hour.

Pakistani flood deaths mount

QUETTA, PAKISTAN – Thousands of troops rushed to fish out bodies and help survivors after a dam burst in southwest Pakistan, following a week of rains that left more than 270 people dead and hundreds missing.

The biggest number of victims – at least 135 – were in southern Baluchistan province, where water from the Shadikor dam burst late Thursday and tore through villages near the coastal town of Pasni.

Meteor lands near Madrid

MADRID, Spain (AP) — A spectacular fireball meteor fell from the sky Thursday night before falling in a neighbourhood near two Madrid airports, emergency services said Friday.

“We had three calls and are aware of other calls reporting a huge fireball before midnight on Thursday,” said Luis Serrano of the emergency telephone service in Madrid.

Spanish press agency EFE also received calls reporting the falling object which was seen descending nearly vertically near the airports.

Barajas International Airport that services the Spanish capital is about seven kilometres from Torrejon military air base.

“An enormous, incandescent and very red ball gave a tremendous flash and then went out in a few seconds,” witness Jose Antonio Lopez told EFE. He said he believed it was a meteor “by the way it fell and the brevity of the object’s flash.”

Officers at Torrejon, which was once a United States air base, would not comment when called by The Associated Press. Barajas Airport press department also had nothing to report.

“The Heavens will burn brightly and redly, there will be a copper hue over the face of the land, followed by a day of darkness. A new moon will appear and break up and fall. The people will scatter in madness. They will hear the trumpet and battle cry of the Destroyer….

“this is the form of destruction that will rush upon you: There will be the great body of fire, the glowing head with many mouths and eyes ever changing. Terrible teeth will be seen in formless mouths and a fearful dark belly will glow redly from fires inside…..

The Doomshape, called the Destroyer, in Egypt, was seen in all the lands whereabouts. In colour it was bright and fiery, in appearance changing and unstable. It twisted about itself like a coil, like water bubbling into a pool from an underground supply, and all men agree it was a most fearsome sight. It was not a great comet or a loosened star, being more like a fiery body of flame….

Images from tonight’s high-rise fire in Madrid, Spain.

It’s interesting to me that a dramatic “firestorm” (of sorts) occurred over a European capital city, on the sixtieth anniversary of the the firebombing of Dresden. As usual, I see far-reaching symbolic value in the nature and timing of events, this Madrid building fire has implications far beyond the obvious.

A cruise liner with 732 people on board – most of them Spanish – has been crippled by a severe storm in the western Mediterranean.
A French-led rescue operation is under way to reach the stricken Voyager, now about 100km (60 miles) from Menorca.

Several people suffered minor injuries and the ship has lost all engine power, a spokesman for its owner, V Ships of Monaco, told the BBC News website.

It was sailing from Sardinia, on a voyage from Tunis to Barcelona.

The spokesman said the crew were battling to restore engine power and a liquefied gas tanker, the Gimi, was on the scene after receiving the distress call.

Battered by storm

A high wave smashing through the windows of the bridge and damaging electronics is thought to have caused the power cut.

The distress call from the ship said it was taking on water and was in “terrible condition,” UK coastguards reported

REMEMBER THIS STORY? A Kennedy Space Center computer programmer found in cave, fearing meteor

CALDWELL, Ohio — When a Kennedy Space Center computer programmer thought a meteor was headed for Earth, he headed for a cave in southeast Ohio.

Deputies responding to a report of an unfamiliar car found Lloyd Albright, along with camping equipment, dried food and 16 guns, said Noble County Sheriff Landon Smith. “He very sincerely thought there was a meteor that was going to hit the Atlantic Ocean and cause a tidal wave 200 feet high,” Sheriff Smith said. “It was going to go up the coast, take Florida for sure and there would be water all over Georgia.” Mr. Albright was found Aug. 10. He thought the meteor was going to hit at 4 a.m. the next day and had been in the cave since at least Aug. 8, Sheriff Smith said Tuesday. The sheriff said finding Mr. Albright’s car, filled with guns and ammunition, led deputies to search nearby woods. The guns were legal, the sheriff said, but raised concerns that someone might be in danger. Mr. Albright had been drinking water that dripped through the cave ceiling and keeping food cold in a pool of water. He was charged with disorderly conduct, then released after posting bond. He was escorted to the interstate and told to head home. “He was nothing but pleasant and easy to get along with,” the sheriff said. Mr. Albright, 47, who works on space shuttle data processing, said he was thankful for the sheriff’s help. He told the Columbus Dispatch that the meteor strike, from fragments of Comet Lee, could occur any time within nine years. “Sheriff Smith did me a favor getting me out of there,” Mr. Albright told the Dispatch in a story published Tuesday. NASA said the closest Comet Lee will come to Earth is 77 million miles by the end of September.

“Situation “critical” as south Pacific islands brace for twin cyclones”:

PAGO PAGO, American Samoa (AFP) – Residents of the Cook Islands, Samoa and American Samoa were warned that they faced a “critically dangerous” situation as two major cyclones bore down on the south Pacific nations.

The Australian-Pacific Center for Emergency and Disaster Information (APCEDI) said seven countries lay in the potential paths of major cyclones Nancy and Olaf, which were forecast to strike populated islands with damaging winds and high seas within the next 24 to 48 hours.

Cyclone Olaf was heading from the northwest towards Samoa and American Samoa and could reach Category 5 “Super Cyclone” status by Tuesday when it is forecast to hit the two neighboring

The Wave Structure of Matter Cosmology

One Principle of the Wave Structure of Matter
On What Exists and its Properties
One Thing Space Exists with the Properties of a Wave-Medium

The Formation of Matter from Waves in Space
Matter Exists as Spherical Standing Waves in Space.
The ‘Particle’ Effect of Matter is Caused by the Wave-Center of the Spherical Standing Waves. (See Fig. 1)



Fig 1. This (very rough) diagram shows how the Spherical In and Out Waves form a Standing Wave around the Wave-Center ‘particle’.

The Properties of Space
i) Space, as One things existing, is necessarily Infinite, Eternal and Continuous (there are no ‘particles’).

ii) The velocity of Waves in Space is the Velocity of Light c.
This Wave Velocity is not constant and is determined by both the Wave Amplitude and Wave Density of Space. i. e.
High Wave Amplitude Waves Propagate with a Faster Wave Velocity. (e.g. waves on water). This is the cause of Charge.
High Wave Density Space causes a Slower Wave Velocity. (e.g. curvature of light near Sun). This is the cause of Gravitational Mass.

The Properties of Matter (Forces and Size of Matter)
i) Any Change in Velocity of the Spherical In-Waves from One Direction changes where these In-Waves meet at their respective Wave-Center which we see as a ‘Force Accelerating a Particle’.
This is the Cause of Newton’s Law of Inertia: Force = Mass * Acceleration. (See Fig. 2)

ii) The Spherical In-Waves are formed from the Huygens’ Combination of Out-Waves from All other Matter in our Finite Spherical Universe. (See Fig. 3)
This is the Cause of Mach’s Principle: Matter’s Mass (Wave Density) is Determined by all other Matter in the Universe.

THE GALACTIC ATLANTIAN AVENGERS/The New World Aryan Omega Conspiracy

“ The Nazis attempted to revive this mystical Aryan race in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Mr. Thomas believes that a hybrid offspring culminated from relations between the Nephilim and the “daughters of man” resulting in increased wickedness upon the earth; and thus evoking God’s wrath in the form of the “Great Flood”. The purpose of the Nazi extermination of the Jewish race was to rid Europe of them completely. Yet, the myth of attempting to exterminate all other humanoid DNA Genetic hybred races in thier qwest in evolving Earth to find the aryan or superior race which was engineered by an Atlantian Reptilian Race to Dissolve the Universal Elements and Survive the Catastrophic transformations by designing Weapons of Mass Destruction and preserving The Master Race which will Rule in the Atlantian II Civilaztion can be found in other European communities also.

As we enter the 21st century and a new millenium, Satan has devised the delusion that mankind is entering into an important evolutionary phase – a New Age. The push for “global enlightenment” has now extended to the vast reaches of the universe, into what could be deemed as a “space” religion. However, once this nebulous veil is lifted, a definite correlation emerges between the UFO/Alien phenomenon and occultic/satanic activity

The ancient civilizations of the Egyptians, Babylonians, Aztecs, Mayans, and Incas shared several intriguing characteristics:

They were extremely advanced scientifically and technologically.
Animal and human sacrifices were performed at an alarming rate, preceding their demise.
They believed they had acquired metaphysical knowledge from the “gods”, whom they perceived as coming from the stars and also the subterranean level of the earth.
These cultures disintegrated or became abruptly extinct while at the pinnacle of their existance.

US researcher says finds Atlantis off Cyprus

LIMASSOL, Cyprus – A US researcher on Sunday claimed he had found the lost civilisation of Atlantis in the watery deep off Cyprus — adding his theory to a mystery which has baffled explorers for centuries.

Robert Sarmast says a Mediterranean basin was flooded in a deluge around 9000 BC which submerged a rectangular land mass he believes was Atlantis, lying 1.5 km beneath sea level between Cyprus and Syria.

“We have definitely found it,” said Sarmast, who led a team of explorers 80 kilometres off the south-east coast of Cyprus earlier this month.

Special Report: Alaska’s 7.9 Denali Fault Earthquake; 2002 Alaskan Earthquake Triggered Quakes More Than 2000 Miles Away EL CERRITO, Calif., Feb. 14 (AScribe Newswire) — The Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America, the premier scientific journal dedicated to earthquake research, has just published a special issue dedicated to the Nov. 3, 2002, magnitude 7.9 Denali Fault Earthquake in Alaska. This issue, guest edited by Dr. Charlotte Rowe, seismologist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, Dr. Douglas Christensen, professor of geophysics at the University of Alaska, and Gary Carver, professor emeritus at Humboldt State University and an Alaska geologist, reports on leading-edge research about the largest continental earthquake to strike North America since 1857.

Effects of the Denali Fault Earthquake, such as swaying objects and sloshing swimming pools, reached as far as the East Coast. Most notably, however, the Denali Fault Earthquake triggered earthquake swarms across Canada and as far away as Yellowstone National Park, California and Utah. This is the first time seismologists have documented this effect at such great distances, and it has spurred new research into the dynamics of earthquake triggering.

The Secret Life of Leonardo da Vinci
A prankster and genius, Leonardo da Vinci is widely believed to have hidden secret messages within much of his artwork. Most scholars agree that even Da Vinci’s most famous pieces—works like The Mona Lisa, The Last Supper, and Madonna of the Rocks—contain startling anomalies that all seem to be whispering the same cryptic message…a message that hints at a shocking historical secret which allegedly has been guarded since 1099 by a European secret society known as the Priory of Sion. In 1975, Paris’s Bibliothèque Nationale discovered parchments known as Les Dossiers Secrets, identifying numerous members of the Priory of Sion, including Sir Isaac Newton, Victor Hugo, Botticelli, and Leonardo da Vinci. French President, Francois Mitterrand, is rumored to have been a member, although there exists no proof of this.

“From the Bottom of Asia.”
Has it happened off Sumatra?

Line one written all the way back in the year 1554 attempts to give us a date for when, or near about when, the quake takes place. Of Nostradamus’ 70 astrological predictions recorded in his volume of major prophecies, many have been surprisingly close or on the mark.


The greatest earthquake in 40 years rocked Sumatra and its environs on 26 December. The 9.0 temblor sent 30 foot tidal waves across the Indian Ocean inundating the coastlines of ten countries, including Thailand, Indonesia, Burma, Eastern India, Sri Lanka, Somalia and Kenya. At the date of this writing the loss of life is catastrophic. Initial reports claim tens of thousands are dead and many more thousands are missing.

The 16th-century French seer, Michel de Nostradamus, wrote the following prophecy over four-and-a-half centuries before that could have presaged the great Sumatran quake. Quatrain 3 of Century 3 of Nostradamus’ prophetic classic “Les Propheties” says the following:

Mars & Mercure & l’argent ioint ensemble,
Vers le midy extreme siccité:
Au fond d’Asie on dira terre tremble,
Corinthe, Ephese lors en perplexité

Mars and Mercury and the silver [Moon] in conjunction. Towards the south there will be a great drought. From the bottom of Asia an earthquake will be reported. Corinth [Greece] and Ephesus [Asia Minor] then in a troubled state.

Destiny altering events often find themselves echoed in Nostradamus’ prophecies, such as a super quake. On a map, Sumatra is indeed situated at the bottom of Asia. However, there have been two other deadly quakes in recent memory suffered by another region we might identify as being “from the bottom of Asia”—India. There was the Killari-Latur quake of 30 September 1993 which killed 10,000 to 40,000 people in Maharastra State (Central India), and the great Gujarati temblor of 26 January 2001 killing 50,000 to 100,000 in India’s populous northwestern state on the border with Pakistan.

(Judge an assessment of the accuracy of these astrological predictions by reading “Nostradamus: The Complete Prophecies” ; and “Nostradamus: The New Millennium “)

The crux of this prophecy’s message is the following. At a time astrologically slotted in line one, there will be a great drought towards the south (“le Midy” in Old French).By referring to the “south” he might only mean his home region of southern France: “le Midi” or Provence. Otherwise “le Midi” could imply this and much more: the regions “south” of France itself, such as North Africa, suffers a great and lingering drought. When this happens, line three predicts an earthquake in the nether regions of Asia. That would include a wide area from the South Asian subcontinent (India) to the Dutch East Indies (Sumatra, Indonesia) as the target area.

It is a fact that southern France and Saharan Africa have endured record droughts between the years 1993 through 2004, whether we are talking about the Killari-Latur or Gujarat quakes, or the most recent submarine quake centered 125 miles off the northwest coast of the northern Sumatran province of Aceh. Moreover, seismic activity in August 1999, in the regions of Greece (code named “Corinth” and Turkey (code named “Ephesus”), was responsible for some of the worst loss of life and destruction of property in a century. These quakes took place five years after Killari-Latur and two years before the Gujarat quakes “from the bottom of Asia.”

The lost land of Thule: A legend melts away

I journeyed from Scotland through Norway, Iceland, Greenland and to Svalbard, mostly in search of the land of Thule – the most northerly place of the ancient world. Thule was an early traveler’s yarn, a tall tale about a northern land near a frozen ocean, draped in mist. In the fourth century BC, Pytheas the Greek claimed to have seen it. But his account was lost, and Thule was never identified with any certainty again.

In modern times, the legend of Thule has given way to a complex story. In the 20th century the most northerly places were mapped by explorers with sledges and planes. The far north became a battlefield during World War II, and in the 1950s the U.S. Air Force established Thule Air Base in northern Greenland, so that bombers could fly across the North Pole to Moscow. The Arctic Ocean became a dumping ground for the nuclear pollution of the Russian Northern Fleet.

. There can be no more significant symbol of the loss of Thule – and all the dreams that came with it, all the beauty and strangeness – than the melting of the polar ice. It might be speculation, to be disproved at a later stage; the forecasts of these climate scientists might be mocked by later generations as one more theory of the ignorant. The question that kept running through my head as I wandered through the north, sifting the ideals of lost civilizations, was how we could be so crazy as to risk it. And I kept imagining a time when the frozen ocean and all the creatures that lived in it would be nothing more than fairy tales, stories from a vanished world.

Inside Zero Point Energy

©1999 Thomas Valone, M.A., P.E.
Integrity Research Institute


For the first time in history, a lot of media attention is being paid to the sea of energy that pervades all of space. It just happens to be the biggest sea of energy that is known to exist and we’re floating inside it. (Credit due to The Sea of Energy by T. Henry Moray for the idea.) Not only is it big but its energy is estimated to exceed nuclear energy densities, so even a small piece of it is worth its weight in gold. What is it? Many people are not sure what “zero point energy” (ZPE) is. Most agree that virtual particle fluctuation contributes to it and van der Waals forces don’t explain everything. Does it offer a source of unlimited, free energy for homes, cars, and space travel? Depending on who we talk to, ZPE can do everything and ZPE can do nothing useful. How can the energy be converted to a usable form? What are the basic explanations of ZPE and the new discoveries, which have rocked the U.S. Patent Office, Physical Review Letters, Science, Scientific American, and the New York Times? Why is ZPE implicated in the latest confirmation of cosmological antigravity? Can the Casimir effect be a source of energy? This article is intended to give a review of the latest developments (as well as an introduction to the topic for those who are non-specialists).

The Death Star

Out in deepest space lurks a force of almost unimaginable power. Explosions of extraordinary violence, are blasting through the Universe every day. If one ever struck our Solar System it would destroy our Sun and all the planets.

For years no one could work out what was causing these awesome explosions. Now scientists think they have identified the culprit. It’s the most extreme object ever found in the Universe; they have christened it a ‘hypernova’.

Cold War cosmology

The mystery began in 1967. A US military satellite was launched to detect Soviet nuclear tests which the Pentagon believed were secretly taking place on the dark side of the Moon. Instead, the satellite picked up evidence of explosions far bigger than any bomb. Something was emitting bursts of gamma rays – the deadliest form of energy known – on a massive scale. What was worse, these blasts just kept on coming.

Breaking the law

For decades scientists were baffled. Especially disturbing was evidence that these explosions might be coming from the furthest reaches of the Universe, billions of light years away. If this was so, then for us to see them on Earth they had to be on a scale that was beyond our comprehension. According to some, these explosions were so huge that they might even violate the most sacred law in all science: Einstein’s famous equation relating mass and energy, E=mc². That law underpins nothing less than our understanding of how our Universe works.

Twin cyclones batter the South Pacific, could combine into ‘perfect storm’

Twin cyclones battered three south Pacific nations and weather experts warned they could combine into one giant, destructive storm center that would create havoc in the region.

Cyclone Olaf, a powerful storm packing winds over 200 kilometers per hour (120 miles per hour), was bearing down on Samoa and American Samoa and could reach “super cyclone” status by the time it strikes the two territories’ main islands around 0000 GMT Wednesday, experts said.

The very largest black holes

Credit: NASA/CXC/M.Weiss NASA — The very largest black holes reach a certain point and then grow no more, according to the best survey to date of black holes made with NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory. Scientists have also discovered many previously hidden black holes that are well below their weight limit.

These new results corroborate recent theoretical work about how black holes and galaxies grow. The biggest black holes, those with at least 100 million times the mass of the Sun, ate voraciously during the early Universe. Nearly all of them ran out of ‘food’ billions of years ago and went onto a forced starvation diet.

What’s on Peter Jennings’ radar? The truth about UFOs

In the span of more than 40 years with ABC News, Peter Jennings has built one of the most respected reputations in television journalism.

Recently, Jennings anchored “World News Tonight” from Iraq. He returned to the States, only to hit the road again. Tomorrow and Thursday “World News Tonight” reports from Seattle, where Jennings and his team will examine our region’s industries.

“UFOs — Seeing Is Believing,” airing Feb. 24 from 8 to 10 p.m. on KOMO/4, is the latest entry in the “Peter Jennings Reporting” series. His goal is to take a serious look at a subject most scientists, the government and the media tend to brush off as lunacy. When some 80 million Americans claim to have seen a UFO, he explained, it’s worth an investigation.

“I grant you that there may be a lot of people out there in the country who think they’ve had these experiences, and some of them may even be unhinged,” he said, “but I think even those people deserve a serious hearing from a serious reporter.”

It probably doesn’t hurt ABC to air it during sweeps, either, even if Jennings insists the all-important ratings period played no part in his choice of subject.

Considering all this, why not an earnest probe into whether the truth is out there?

“I feel the same way about reporting about UFOs as I feel about reporting on Iraq,” Jennings said. “The great joy we have in our business … is the opportunity to learn new stuff every day, and to write about it.”

UFOs hidden under electromagnetic flux invisible to human eyes but thousands of them are hovering all around us

The electromagnetic flux can be created through very advanced applications of super conductors. There is another paranormal means of creating this flux that makes anything invisible in true sense. The electromagnetic flux can be created through spiritual concentration by any human being. When such an event takes place strange phenomena take place. And people call it miracle, heavenly effects and so on.

Zodiac Symbol Origins Explained

(Entry-level material for students of the Outer Hall, adapted from the degree lecture “Knight of the Brazen Serpent” in Morals and Dogma of Scottish Freemasonry, by Albert Pike.)

To the ancients, as yet inventors of no astronomical instruments, and looking at the Heavens with the eyes of children, this earth was a level plain of unknown extent. About its boundaries there was speculation, but no knowledge. The inequalities of its surface were the irregularities of a plane. That it was a globe, or that anything lived on its under surface, or on what it rested, they had no idea. Every twenty-four hours the sun came up from beyond the Eastern rim of the world, and travelled across the sky, over the earth, always South of, but sometimes nearer and sometimes further from the point overhead; and sunk below the world’s Western rim. With him went light, and after him followed darkness.

And every twenty-four hours appeared in the Heavens another body, visible chiefly at night, but sometimes even when the sun shone, which likewise, as if following the sun at a greater or less distance, travelled across the sky; sometimes as a thin crescent; and thence increasing to a full orb resplendent with silver light; and sometimes more and sometimes less to the Southward of the point overhead, within the same limits as the Sun.

2012 END

“There have been many projected dates for the ending of the Mayan calendar, ranging from 1957 to 2050. The 2012 end-date was defined by the Thompson Projection. Thompson’s projection used a day-by-day count to cross -reference the Mayan to the European calendar rather than a count of years. This bypassed the problem of year names in the Gregorian system. Jose & Lloydine agreed with Thompson’s 2012 date. More importantly, the 2012 date works with the hard facts evidenced by the accuracy of the July 26, 1992 Time Shift. Terence McKenna and Peter Meyer’s Timewave Zero software that graphs time as a fractal demonstrates by graph the accuracy of the winter solstice of 2012 as the correct end-date of the Mayan calendar with graph anomalies appearing in the months of July.

Beyond the stargates of this planet and solar system lies a cosmic scheme of underlying order in which the earth’s flow of history unfolds in patterns of time. Galactic travelers have long traversed the corridors of time and space, and peri odically visited this solar system. The evidence of archaeological ruins on Mars and the moon are mute testimony to the presence of intelligent builders in now ancient history. The evidence is clear. Someone with advanced knowledge of astronomy has visited peoples of this planet and left calendars as a signature note. This is discovered in correspondences of world calendars: Mayan, Tibetan, Afri can, Vedic, and Hebraic. Similar calendar schemes are found in each of these cultures.

The European calendar mandated by Pope Gregory in 1583 is the only world calendar that did not intercalate at least two celestial cycles. The Hebraic calendar acquired by Enoch after he was translated in a beam of light intercalated solar and lunar cycles in a fashion similar to the Maya. The Dogon in Africa were given four calendars by visitors from Sirius B: Solar, lunar, Venu sian, and civil. The Tibetan calendar is so similar to the Mayan that traditional scholars now speculate that they share a common origin. The Vedic calendar is based on cosmic cycles, or Yugas. An ancient Hindu astrology used 27 houses of 13 degrees 20 minutes, which are key numbers in the Mayan calendar.

These calendars provided a time management tool that synchronized planetary cycles with visits from the stars. The Dogon calendar identified the 12 or 13th Century as the date of last visit; the Mayan calendar identified July 11, 1991, as an upcoming date of visit. Both of these dates coincided with significant planetary cycles.

The cultures visited by the Galactic Maya were shamanic. Ancient Hebraic instructions for building altars and using precious and semiprecious stones are identical to those used by Native Americans. The ancient Tibetans were shamanic. The Dogon and Maya are shamanic. The Galactic Maya were shamanic.

Ancient Hebraic instructions for building altars and using precious and semiprecious stones are identical to those used by Native Americans. The ancient Tibetans were shamanic. The Galactic Maya were shamans of planetary sciences, Cosmic Shamans who understood and utilized the cosmic flow of events. Their secrets were left with shaman in cultures who held the keys of their sciences. Until now the shaman’s craft has appeared as superstition that scattered before the power of European-based science. But that same science has now brought planet to her knees in destruction of the biosphere.

Meteoric veil and climate

Theosophy speaks of a meteoric veil surrounding the earth (see appendix 2). The meteoric veil is said to be many scores of miles thick and to consist partly of dust rising up from the earth but mainly of interplanetary and interstellar dust – most of it very fine, but including larger bodies. The dust originates from disintegrated moons, planets, and stars.

The meteoric veil partly acts as a protective shield, screening earth, for example, from the terrific energy of the sun. In addition, solar energies reaching the earth arouse electromagnetic currents in this thick shell of meteoric dust. The electromagnetic interchanges between the earth and its meteoric veil help to produce various meteorological phenomena, including storms, lightning, precipitation, droughts, changes in temperature, and the auroras, and they also generate some 70% of the earth’s heat. The varying influx of cosmic dust is connected with the succession of glacial and warm periods, and associated expansions and contractions of the atmosphere. Every globe of a planetary chain is surrounded by a meteoric veil during its active periods, or globe rounds. Mars (i.e. its visible globe D), which is currently in a state of dormancy or obscuration between its third and fourth rounds, has only a very thin shell of meteoric matter surrounding it because the forces of attraction holding the meteoric masses together have been relaxed. Mercury has a thicker meteoric veil around it, as it is currently coming out of obscuration to begin its seventh round, while Venus has an even denser veil surrounding it, being in its seventh round. Saturn’s rings are a thickening of its meteoric veil in the plane of its equator.

Spiderman ‘put to the test’

It has been nicknamed the star in a jar by researchers in the field.

The star in a jar effortlessly reaches temperatures of tens of thousands of degrees, which is hotter than the surface of the Sun. It was able to do all this by simply focussing the energy of the sound wave into a tiny hot spot.

Nuclear fusion is nature’s atomic power – it is what powers the sun and, if it can be made to happen here on earth on a large enough scale, it promises to solve all of mankind’s energy problems in one go.

Gamma rays that flash briefly in Earth’s atmosphere during lightning storms are much more frequent and powerful than previously thought, a new study reveals. The rays – high-energy photons – exceed the energies of those from cosmic sources such as the explosive births of black holes and the new observations support a phenomenon predicted in 1925.

Brief bursts of gamma rays coming from space have been observed since the 1960s. But in 1994, astronomers using NASA’s orbiting Compton Gamma-Ray Observatory discovered the energetic photons in Earth’s upper atmosphere. These terrestrial gamma-ray flashes (TGFs) last about a millisecond – shorter than most space-based bursts.

Compton observed about 70 TGFs during its nine years in orbit. But it was not designed to accurately measure high energies or respond quickly to such fleeting events. Now, astronomers have studied data from NASA’s Reuven Ramaty High Energy Solar Spectroscopic Imager (RHESSI) satellite, launched in 2002. They found 86 TGFs over six months, extrapolating this data suggests that about 50 events occur around the world every day.

And RHESSI’s detectors showed the photons had about 100 times as much energy as those measured by Compton. “This is what interests me the most,” says David Smith, a physicist at the University of California in Santa Cruz, US, who led the study. “The average energy per gamma ray is greater than the emission from all those cosmic sources.”

“Relativistic runaway breakdown”

The events are the most energetic phenomena produced on Earth, agrees Umran Inan, a physicist at Stanford University in California, US. He says the photons appear to be produced in a “relativistic runaway breakdown” process, first suggested 80 years ago.

Brightest Galactic Flash Ever Detected Hits Earth

A huge explosion halfway across the galaxy packed so much power it briefly altered Earth’s upper atmosphere in December, astronomers said Friday.

No known eruption beyond our solar system has ever appeared as bright upon arrival.

But you could not have seen it, unless you can top the X-ray vision of Superman: In gamma rays, the event equaled the brightness of the full Moon’s reflected visible light.

The blast originated about 50,000 light-years away and was detected Dec. 27. A light-year is the distance light travels in a year, about 6 trillion miles (10 trillion kilometers).

Military telescope enlists in doomsday asteroid patrol
Last Updated Feb 21 2005 12:06 PM MST
CBC News
CALGARY – Scientists in Calgary have enlisted a retrofitted 1950s military telescope to help them spot massive asteroids that could theoretically collide with Earth with catastrophic results.

The telescope, which was used to track satellites during the Cold War, required $500,000 worth of upgrades to prepare it for its new assignment.

“The electronics needed to be redone,” Mike Mazur, a geophysicist at the University of Calgary, said. “The motors needed to be replaced, the mechanics of the mount were modified considerably, the optics as well.”

The Calgary telescope has a large field of vision, making it one of fewer than 10 places in the world equipped to search for an asteroid.

The ionisation field extension in the alignement of Mars and the galactic center just left the earth/moon orbit system recently (This is why the moon anomalies) to pursue his sweaping through the solar system.

As we saw recently on the sun, sunspots run as hell to reach the right side of the sun (right from earth perspective). This have been caused by THIS extension and this is explaining why the actual sun flares toward Mars.

In the following week we must expect to see many more of these flares, directed toward Mars (mean the other side of the sun).

If this should not affect earth very heavily, we will start to rock a bit more in following weeks, due to the orbital direction of the earth which will be slowing it’s movement toward the galactic center to pursue it’s orbit. This escalation in earth geo and climate activities will increase slowly up to end of may.

Was the December 26, 2004 Indonesian Earthquake and Tsunami
Caused by a Stellar Explosion 45,000 light years away?
Sound Crazy? Read Carefully Below.

Gamma Ray Bursts, Gravity Waves, and Earthquakes

On December 26, 2004 a magnitude 9.3 earthquake occurred in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Malaysia. It caused a powerful tsunami which devastated coastal regions of many countries leaving over 240,000 people either dead or missing. It was the worst tsunami to affect this area since the explosion of Krakatoa. The earthquake that produced it was so strong that it exceeded by a factor of 10 the next most powerful earthquake to occur in the past 25 years.

• Indonesian 9.3 Richter earthquake:

December 26, 2004 at 00 hours 58 minutes (Universal Time)

It is then with some alarm that we learn that just 44.6 hours later gamma ray telescopes orbiting the Earth picked up the arrival of the brightest gamma ray burst ever recorded!

• Gamma ray burst arrival:

December 27, 2004 at 21 hours 36 minutes (Universal Time)

This gamma ray blast was 100 times more intense than any burst that had been previously recorded, equaling the brightness of the full Moon, but detectable only at gamma ray wavelengths. Gamma ray counts spiked to a maximum in 1.5 seconds and then declined over a 5 minute period with 7.57 second pulsations. The blast temporarily changed the shape the Earth’s ionosphere, distorting the transmission of long-wavelength radio signals. See stories on, BBC News, NY TImes.

On February 23, 1946, an American man said he had a vivid dream where he saw blood-red oozing out of the USSR into many nations of the earth. In the center of the United States, he then saw a spot of white appear, and likewise spread, either changing the reddened areas to white, or to pink. Obvious reference to Communism, and related attitudes, like scientific Marxism (abject materialism & atheism), and the extreme forms of Humanism (Darwinism, abject materialism & atheism). I’m making sweeping generalizations here, but so what, that’s better than the sweet nothings which will be said about these quakes in conventional circles, things like “oh, interesting! there were three small earthquakes near Baltimore today


Anyway, the man who had the dream 59 years ago says that all of a sudden “the Red leader [of Russia] could no longer resist his desire for world domination,” and declared as much on every form of broadcast medium, radios, it was heard everywhere, he meant. Then he saw “sleepers” and saboteurs execute their orders, blowing up government and military installations in various parts of the United States, then he saw, to his amazement, bomber planes & missiles come into the U.S. and deploy “chemical and biological weapons.” He said that seemed more catastrophic than a nuclear attack.

Monster star burst was brighter than full Moon: astronomers

PARIS (AFP) – Stunned astronomers described the greatest cosmic explosion ever monitored — a star burst from the other side of the galaxy that was briefly brighter than the full Moon and swamped satellites and telescopes.

The high-radiation flash, detected last December 27, caused no harm to Earth but would have literally fried the planet had it occurred within a few light years of home.

Normally reserved skywatchers struggled for superlatives.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime event,” said Rob Fender of Britain’s Southampton University.

“We have observed an object only 20 kilometers (12 miles) across, on the other side of our galaxy, releasing more energy in a 10th of a second than the Sun emits in 100,000 years.”

“It was the mother of all magnetic flares — a true monster,” said Kevin Hurley, a research physicist at the University of California at Berkeley.

Evidence of extreme disturbance in Earth’s core – can earth explode?

Geologists in India and the rest of the world are receiving signals of a very disturbed mantel and core of the earth. According to some computer models, the outer core and the mantel is getting extremely heated. This can cause extreme tension on the earth’s crust and the tectonic plates.

The net result can be increased earthquakes and volcanoes. The reports coming from every continent says that the volcanoes, geysers and mud volcanoes all are ready to explode.

According to the scientists the mantel viscosity is going down due to increased temperature. The outer core is showing sign molecular agitation. The inner core is also showing strange signs.

Scientists believe that if the blast had occurred only ten light years afar, planet Earth would have been destroyed

The day of Decmeber 27th 2004, could have become the last day in the history of all living beings on planet Earth, including humans. An unimaginably powerful blast of a neutron star rocked the Milky Way, in the area of the Constellation Sagittarius. All leading astronomic centers and satellites registered the blast. Scientists have never witnessed such a powerful explosion in space before. The blast produced the energy, the amount of which could be compared to the power that the Sun produces in 250,000 years, Itar-Tass reports.

Astronomers were astounded with the amount of energy that was released as a result of the blast of the star on the outskirts of our galaxy 50,000 light years far away. American scientists said that the explosion occurred, when a giant black hole took up the equivalent of 300 million stars, the size of our Sun. The black hole continues emitting a vast quantity of gas, the mass of which is equal to a trillion of Suns.

The flash of radiation, which was registered on December 27th, exerted a very strong influence on the Moon and the Earth. The star, which caused the space explosion, is referred to a rare class of super-magnetic neutron stars, classified as SGR 1806-20. Scientists believe that if the blast had occurred only ten light years afar, planet Earth would have been destroyed. “We figure that it’s probably the biggest explosion observed by humans within our galaxy since Johannes Kepler saw his supernova in 1604,” Dr Rob Fender, of Southampton University said.

A very powerful current of gamma and X-rays appeared as a result of the star quake. Humans could feel the consequences of the neutron star explosion too: a lot of people did not feel very well that day.

The Pole Shift

Interview with Gregg Braden
by Wynn Free

There are many quantifiable scientific indicators proving that the Earth and the Solar System are going through changes which have never previously occurred in recorded human history. Many psychics and channelers say that we have entered the beginning of a dimensional shift which is already deeply affecting all of our lives. And some predict that within the next decade we will enter into an Ascension process fulfilling the prophecies of Jesus.

Gregg Braden is probably the most recognized person who is evaluating and revealing the scientific phenomena pointing to this shift. He became intrigued with all this when he was working for Phillips Petroleum in the late 1970s and noticed that the magnetics of the earth were at their lowest point in 2000 years and decreasing at a rapid rate.

Eventually, Braden wrote a book – Awakening to Zero Point – that documented this and other indicators of our rapidly changing planet.

The following is Part I of an interview that took place in September 2002. It focuses on Earth’s changing magnetic field and its possible effects on consciousness.

Wynn: Is it true that the magnetic poles of the earth are in the process of shifting right now?

Gregg: In the May-June-July time frame of this year, 2002, very well acknowledged and esteemed scientific journals actually were saying for the first time that we are in the process of a polar reversal. Back in the 1960s, geologists were certain that the earth periodically went through a reversal. They could tell from core samples, ice samples, and fossils, as well as magnetized particles that were locked into certain positions in the rock of the earth. Geologists were so certain about this phenomenon that they actually mapped out the last four-and-a-half-million years, and the resulting records suggested that the earth has gone through fourteen of these polar reversals. At that time, back in 1961 and 1962, scientists felt that the last pole reversal occurred at about the time of the last Ice Age, ten to twelve thousand years ago. And they were certain it would happen again, but not for thousands of years, so it was nothing to worry about. But through the 1990s, and up until just two months ago (July 2002), geologists continued to refine this kind of information. They had been saying it took thousands of years for this to happen. Then they began to say, “Well, it can happen in hundreds of years.” But now, recent evidence from some of the ice cores in Greenland and Antarctica say that it could happen in as little as a decade. But now, we know that the poles are actually moving. We’re living it right now. We don’t know exactly what that means, because even though it’s happened fourteen times in the last four and a half million years, it’s never happened with six billion people on the earth.

*Earth Magnetic Field Reversal Possible energy ramifications of diminishing magnetic field. How long will it linger at zero before reversing?*

by Mary-Sue Haliburton
Pure Energy Systems News

Seeing the powerful earthquakes such as the December 26th, 2004 event that triggered the tsunami disaster, people are looking for possible causes for the apparent instability of earth’s crust. “End-times” alarmists and backyard researchers believe that the predicted imminent reversal of the earth’s magnetic field may be a significant clue to these eschatological-scale events.

Scientists have been observing changes in the direction of earth’s magnetic field which took place recently as well as in the distant past. NASA’s website features a map showing the gradual northward migration of the north magnetic pole in the past century and a half. Since more than double the time interval has elapsed since the last reversal, compared to the time lapse between the previous two pole reversals, some believe we may be overdue for the next north-south flip. (1,2) However, though the interval between reversals of the Earth’s magnetic field can be as short as 5,000 years, it can also be as long as 50 million years. There does not seem to be any logic or rule governing the planet’s behavior.

It is not only the direction but also the strength of this magnetic field that is a concern. In the time of dinosaurs, at an estimated 2.5 gauss, it was eighty percent stronger than it is now. This may have been one of the reasons such gigantic life forms thrived. It is now accepted that a catastrophic event ended the reign of giant reptiles. However, they did not re-evolve to equivalent dimensions. And the disappearance of mammalian “mega-fauna” in more recent times is still considered to be a mystery. The mastodons and mammoths would have towered over modern elephants. Why are there so few large terrestrial animals today?

Tsunami bomb NZ’s devastating war secret

30.06.2000 By Eugene Bingham

Top-secret wartime experiments were conducted off the coast of Auckland to perfect a tidal wave bomb, declassified files reveal.

An Auckland University professor seconded to the Army set off a series of underwater explosions triggering mini-tidal waves at Whangaparaoa in 1944 and 1945.

Professor Thomas Leech’s work was considered so significant that United States defence chiefs said that if the project had been completed before the end of the war it could have played a role as effective as that of the atom bomb.

Details of the tsunami bomb, known as Project Seal, are contained in 53-year-old documents released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

Papers stamped “top secret” show the US and British military were eager for Seal to be developed in the post-war years too. They even considered sending Professor Leech to Bikini Atoll to view the US nuclear tests and see if they had any application to his work.

He did not make the visit, although a member of the US board of assessors of atomic tests, Dr Karl Compton, was sent to New Zealand.

“Dr Compton is impressed with Professor Leech’s deductions on the Seal project and is prepared to recommend to the Joint Chiefs of Staff that all technical data from the test relevant to the Seal project should be made available to the New Zealand Government for further study by Professor Leech,” said a July 1946 letter from Washington to Wellington.

Professor Leech, who died in his native Australia in 1973, was the university’s dean of engineering from 1940 to 1950.

News of his being awarded a CBE in 1947 for research on a weapon led to speculation in newspapers around the world about what was being developed.

Though high-ranking New Zealand and US officers spoke out in support of the research, no details of it were released because the work was on-going.

A former colleague of Professor Leech, Neil Kirton, told the Weekend Herald that the experiments involved laying a pattern of explosives underwater to create a tsunami.

Small-scale explosions were carried out in the Pacific and off Whangaparaoa, which at the time was controlled by the Army.

It is unclear what happened to Project Seal once the final report was forwarded to Wellington Defence Headquarters late in the 1940s.

The bomb was never tested on a full scale, and Mr Kirton doubts that Aucklanders would have noticed the trials.

“Whether it could ever be resurrected … Under some circumstances I think it could be devastating.”

*Two Meteors Spotted by Public *

Two meteors were last night reported in the south west skies by members of the public, police said today.

An object described as a white hot meteor with a yellow edge was seen in the sky, and is thought to have landed in the sea south west of St Ives.

A second was reported travelling south west from Torrington, north Devon.

There have been no reports of any damage or injury as a result of these objects, said the police.

A lecture by Michael Crichton
Caltech Michelin Lecture
January 17, 2003

My topic today sounds humorous but unfortunately I am serious. I am going to argue that extraterrestrials lie behind global warming. Or to speak more precisely, I will argue that a belief in extraterrestrials has paved the way, in a progression of steps, to a belief in global warming. Charting this progression of belief will be my task today.

Let me say at once that I have no desire to discourage anyone from believing in either extraterrestrials or global warming. That would be quite impossible to do. Rather, I want to discuss the history of several widely-publicized beliefs and to point to what I consider an emerging crisis in the whole enterprise of science-namely the increasingly uneasy relationship between hard science and public policy.

I have a special interest in this because of my own upbringing. I was born in the midst of World War II, and passed my formative years at the height of the Cold War. In school drills, I dutifully crawled under my desk in preparation for a nuclear attack.

Computer Models predict Magnetic pole reversal in Earth and Sun can bring end to human civilization in 2012 – evidence of extra-terrestrial help in our survival

According to some computer scientists working together with a group geophysicist and astrophysicists, Earth and Sun both will go through a process of Magnetic Pole Reversal in 2012. This last happened millions of years before when the Dinosaurs disappeared. A private research and analysis company in Hyderabad is predicting a major upheaval in 2012.

Magnetic Pole reversal is a process when North Pole and South Pole reverse position. While this happens, at some point of time Earth’s magnetic field reaches zero Gauss which simply put means, Earth at that point of time has zero magnetism. When this coincides with a eleven year cycle of Sun’s Polar reversal, a major problem arises.

Russian scientist predicted tsunami two days before it hit Southeast Asia US forces supposedly used a secret weapon in Iraq, which resulted in a powerful earthquake

Viktor Bokov, a scientist from St.Petersburg, deals with short-term earthquake forecasts. The information about the forthcoming disaster in Southeast Asia, which killed 215,000 people, appeared on the website of the Arctic and Antarctic Institute (on which Bokov’s forecasts are regularly published) two days before the tsunami hit the Asian shores.

“Such an important event was left without any attention. I cannot come to the Russian government and just tell them that an upcoming natural disaster will kill tens of thousands of people. I tried to work in the EMERCOM of Russia, and they were very interested in my methods. As soon as they grasped the idea of my work, they immediately turned my services down and started working alone, forecasting earthquakes. Their work was not successful, though,” the scientist said.

Considering that ships, planes and Boy Scouts steer by it, Earth’s magnetic field is less reliable than you’d think. Rocks in an ancient lava flow in Oregon suggest that for a brief erratic span about 16 million years ago magnetic north shifted as much as 6 degrees per day. After little more than a week, a compass needle would have pointed toward Mexico City.
The lava catches Earth’s magnetic field in the act of reversing itself. Magnetic north heads south, and — over about 1,000 years — the field does a complete flip-flop. While the Oregon data is controversial, Earth scientists agree that the geological evidence as a whole — the “paleomagnetic” record — proves such reversals happened many times over the past billion years.

“Some reversals occurred within a few 10,000 years of each other,” says Los Alamos scientist Gary Glatzmaier, “and there are other periods where no reversals occurred for tens of millions of years.” How do these flip-flops happen, and why at such irregular intervals? The geological data, invaluable to show what happened, registers only a mute shrug when it comes to the deeper questions.

Sun’s Temper Blamed for Arctic Ozone Loss

A dramatic thinning of Earth’s protective ozone layer above the Arctic last year was the result of intense upper-level winds and an extra dose of space weather, scientists said Tuesday.

Ozone, which screens out some of the Sun’s harmful ultraviolet radiation, declined by up to 60 percent in the stratosphere over high northern latitudes in the spring of 2004. Officials issued a health warning earlier this year for residents of the far North.

In a new study, scientists conclude that an intense round of solar storms around Halloween in 2003 was at the root of the problem. Charged particles from the storms triggered chemical reactions that increased the formation of extra nitrogen in the upper stratosphere, some 20 miles up. Nitrogen levels climbed to their highest in at least two decades.

Greenland witnesses record winter high temperature

STOCKHOLM, Feb. 21 (Xinhuanet) — The temperature in Greenland over the weekend was higher than in many southern European winter getaways, Ritzau news bureau reported on Monday. Temperatures on the island, a Danish overseas territory, reached 16 degrees on Saturday, making it warmer than places such as Algarve, Malorca, and northern Tunisia. The official record of 16.0 C (60.8 F) was recorded in the townof Paamiut (Frederikshob) on the western coast of the Greenland. The temperature is the highest recorded winter temperature since record keeping began in 1958. The previous record of 15.4 C (59.7 F) was recorded in 1980 in the southern Greenland town of Narsaruaq. The previous record high for February of 14.2 C (57.6 F) was registered in 1965, also in Narsaruaq. The warm winter weather in Greenland is caused by weather systems that have pumped warm air over the southwestern portion of the island, according to Danish TV weather service. Temperatures along the entire southern coast were over 10 C (50 F) on Saturday. Meteorologists expected the warm weather to spread north, causing ice in the otherwise frigid northeast Greenland to melt. Enditem

Ice chunk that fell from sky into homeowner’s yard defies explanation

DECATUR – The sky, apparently, is falling.

Its point of impact? The back yard of William and Anna Mae Beals at 6060 Thomas Road.

A slab of ice about the size of a concrete block hurtled from the heavens Wednesday morning toward their home in southeast Decatur.

Fortunately, no one was hurt.

But their neighbors were shaken when they saw the chilling visitor land.

Darlene Scribner was sipping coffee and watching birds out her backyard window with her sister and cousin when a white flash descended toward the earth.

“We were shocked,” said her sister Jo Ann Wheeler.

“I’ve never seen anything like that before in my life,” said her cousin, Joyce Wetzel.

So where’d the icy chunk come from?

“I don’t have a clue,” said a puzzled Anna Mae Beals.

Could it have fallen from an airplane’s wing? That’s unlikely, aviation experts say. Ice can cause serious problems if not removed from a plane’s wings.

“We take great pains to make sure airplanes are de-iced,” said Elizabeth Isham Cory, spokeswoman for the Federal Aviation Administration.

“Something that big on an aircraft doesn’t sound right,” said Gene Marcinkowski, Decatur Airport director.

Could the ice cube be the frozen flush of a portable toilet aboard a high-flying plane? Nope. Waste is removed when a plane touches down. Plus, the neighbors concluded, the ice cube was white and clear – not the typical colors of a potty flush.

Could it be a freak weather phenomenon? The chunk of ice initially stumped even Jim Angel, state climatologist with the Illinois State Water Survey.

“That’s a real mystery,” Angel said.

Angel then recalled reports of large ice chunks falling from the skies in places as far away as Spain. The cool slabs usually fall in January, February and March and can weigh as much as 30 pounds.

Experts call them megacryometeors. It’s not really clear why they fall.

“One of these things is very weird,” Angel said. “It’s not like it hasn’t happened to other people. It happens rarely, but it does happen.”

Physicist rocks field with universe theory Princeton professor’s five dimensions make big splash in physics

By Jeff Milgram
Princeton Packet Staff Writer
Saturday, April 29, 2000

While other mortals live in a three-dimensional world — four if you count time as a dimension — Princeton University physics professor Lisa Randall dreams of five dimensions. She doesn’t know what this extra dimension is, or how it can be proven. But Dr. Randall believes it can explain one of the great mysteries of the universe: How gravity is related to the other forces of nature. Clearly, Dr. Randall works at an intellectual level far beyond that of the average working stiff. But Dr. Randall and her collaborator, Raman Sundrum of Stanford University, have made a big splash in the rarefied world of physics and cosmology — the study of the evolution of the universe.

The Big Splash A Scientific Discovery…

I proposed that the Earth was being showered by a vast number of previously undetected, small comets. I calculated that about twenty of these comets, each about the size of a small house and made essentially of water and ice, plunge through our atmosphere each and every minute of every day. If I am correct, then the water that we fish in, bathe in, drink, and are made of, is of extraterrestrial origin.

Today’s is the largest Arizona earthquake since a magnitude 5.5 on April 29, 1993, which was an aftershock of a magnitude 5.0 four days earlier.

“I’d like to point out that the famous “Phoenix [Arizona] lights” mass UFO sighting occurred March 13, 1997… “:

...exactly five years after a notable series of earthquakes began in Arizona March 13, 1992, at 4:20 AM Arizona time. (This morning’s quake occurred at 4:13 AM Arizona time.)

This makes a lot of sense to me, in the view of there being a solid connection between earthquakes, prophecy and divine interaction.

WASHINGTON, D.C. — Two of the largest machines ever conceived by scientists will be described today by one of the world’s leading experts on particle colliders, the massive and expensive machines used to explore inner space by smashing particles together at super-fast speeds.

Cornell University physicist Maury Tigner, director of Cornell’s Laboratory for Elementary Particle Physics (LEPP) in Ithaca, N.Y., is playing a major role in two of these machines: the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), being built at the European Centre for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, for which he serves as chairman of the machine advisory committee, and the International Linear Collider (ILC), being planned by an international team, for which he is chairman of the steering committee

TOKYO — A strong earthquake measuring a magnitude of 7.2 was recorded Wednesday in Indonesia, the Japan Meteorological Agency said. No tsunami warning was issued.

The quake, which struck at 7:42 p.m. Japan time, was centered in the Banda Sea east of Java Island with a focus 190 kilometers under the seabed, the agency said. (Kyodo News)


A strong earthquake has rocked parts of Darwin, with tremors lasting several minutes and felt right across the city and in rural areas.

Geoscience Australia says the earthquake measured 7.2 on the Richter scale with its epicentre about 500 kilometres east north-east of East Timor in the Banda Sea.

The director of the Australia Seismological Centre in Canberra, Kevin McCue, says the earthquake is unlikely to have caused any damage because it occurred at a great depth.

“The tsunami risk is zero for an earthquake of that focal depth,” he said.

“It’s not big enough at that focal depth to have ruptured the sea floor, so there’s zero chance of a tsunami.”

Residents reported the earthquake hitting the capital of the Northern Territory at around 8:20pm ACST.

Electrical Birthing of Stars

Popular ideas about star and planet formation have received a jolt from a recent peek into the womb of a newly forming star. The shock came from the European Space Agency’s XMM-Newton X-ray observatory as it peered into a star-forming region called R Corona Australis, about 500 light-years from Earth.
