What is the cause of natural cyclical events such as the 8.8 Chile earthquake just hours after the 7.3 Japan quake on February 27 and all other events? It is the interchange of magnetic flux (charged particles), not just from our Sun - but from our galaxy (Milky Way) itself.
The puzzle is coming together faster than anyone thought. Modern science is catching up at a rapid pace with understanding ancient text and their collective directive. In short -- hold-on-tight (modern metaphor) or learn to let go and cautiously go-with-the- flow (metaphysical metaphor).
Scientific galactic discoveries are reaching a point of such a feverish pitch, there are some in the astro-physics community who believe a stop-gap measure should be implemented out of concern (I would say fear), of losing control of traditional scientific methods.
Before I disclose some of the recent scientific discoveries, I need to lay-down a foundation of understanding, as it will give you perspective of the nervous anxiety many astro-physicists are feeling now, and will only increase in the months and years ahead.
This scientific shift is so vast; I would compare it to a time when Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Paul Allen were working out of their garage producing a machine that would change the world forever. Of course, it was the start of something called the PC. It wasn't just the outcome of Macintosh, and Windows, but perhaps even more importantly was the offspring of Intel and AMD.
This will be a longer article than what you are use to, but I would suggest to savior every sentence of it. I believe this will be an outline (template) of the direction science is heading.
It will be no surprise to those who have been following ECM's research, to find the direction of current new galactic and geo-physical findings run smack-dab into Mayan Prophecy. What is now being discovered and embraced - is galactic events related to charged particles i.e. magnetic fields, plasma, and yes -- dark energy, black holes, ether - has a direct causal interplay with Earth's core.
- Scientific Method -
What is the practice and principal of what is known as the 'Scientific Method' of research? I will present the 'long version' for my scientific colleagues, and this will be followed by a more brief 'summary' for those who have no practical need to understand the language.
The scientific method may be summarized as the following sequence of steps: Identification of a knowledge problem; precise formulation or reformulation of the problem; examination of the background knowledge in a search for items that might help solve the problem; choice or invention of a tentative hypothesis that looks promising; conceptual test of the hypothesis, that is, checking whether it is compatible with the bulk of the existing knowledge on the matter; drawing some testable consequences of the hypothesis; design of an empirical (observational or experimental) test of the hypothesis or a consequence of it; actual empirical test of the hypothesis, involving a search for both favorable and unfavorable evidence (examples and counterexamples) ; critical examination and statistical processing of the data (for example, calculation of average error and elimination of outlying data); evaluation of the hypothesis in the light of its compatibility with both the background knowledge and the fresh empirical evidence; if the test results are inconclusive, design and performance of new tests, possibly using different special methods; if the test results are conclusive, acceptance, modification, or rejection of the hypothesis; if the hypothesis is acceptable, checking whether its acceptance forces some change (enrichment or correction) in the background knowledge; identifying and tackling new problems raised by the confirmed hypothesis; and repetition of the test and reexamination of its possible impact on existing knowledge.
Scientific method is comprised mathematical and experimental techniques employed in the natural sciences. Many empirical sciences, especially the social sciences, use mathematical tools borrowed from probability theory and statistics, together with such outgrowths of these as decision theory, game theory, utility theory, and operations research. Philosophers of science have addressed general methodological problems, such as the nature of scientific explanation and the justification of induction. See also Mill's methods.

High Anxiety Resides Among Scientists Adjusting to a New Paradigm
A consortium of astro-physicists, cosmologist, and astronomers have warned that, unless we use this current flood of new galactic research sparingly, we risk setting up a dangerous scenario. If the whole data set from the WISE and PLANCK mission is released at once, as is planned, any new ideas that cosmologists come up with may have to remain unresolved because they will have no frame of reference to measure against.
This is a problem unique to cosmology. In other sciences, additional information is always available: you can always reset and rerun an experiment, or go out into the field to collect more data. Because of our fixed location in the universe, however, cosmology doesn't have that luxury. There is only a finite amount of information we can gather about our galaxy and this segment of the universe. In this area of cosmic ray particles, we may never know the source of cyclical events beyond the Sun-Earth connection - and our rapid discoveries of the Galactic Core - Earth Solar System connection.

W.I.S.E. and PLANCK
What is the source of this new data flow which seems to have made the field of solar-physics and cosmologist extremely anxious? It is the two spacecraft 1) WISE & 2) PLANCK
WISE (Wide-field Infrared Survey Explorer): WISE will survey the whole sky in infrared light, and will produce an all-sky image atlas and catalogue of over 300 million infrared sources. Things of particular interest to the scientists working on WISE are the structure of the Milky Way Galaxy, Ultra-luminous infrared galaxies, asteroids, large scale structure of the Universe, the coldest and nearest stars and regions of new star and planet formation.

- PLANCK'S MISSION:
PLANCK - originally named COBRAS/SAMBA, was renamed on approval of the mission in 1996 in honor of the German scientist Max Planck (1858-1947) who won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1918.
Planck will help provide answers to some of the most important questions in modern science: how did the Universe begin, how did it evolve to the state we observe today, and how will it continue to evolve in the future? Planck's objective is to analyze, with the highest accuracy ever achieved, the remnants of the radiation that filled the Universe immediately after the Big Bang - this we observe today as the Cosmic Microwave Background.
The simultaneous mapping of the sky over a wide frequency range will permit the separation of Galactic and extragalactic foreground radiation from the primordial cosmological background signal. Planck will offer vastly improved performance compared to balloon-borne and ground-based experiments and will exceed the performance of other space-based instruments. The spacecraft revolves about its Sun-pointing axis once per minute to gyroscopically stabilize its attitude. Planck will use this stabilization spin to operate in a sky scanning survey mode, observing at least 95% of the sky on two separate occasions within twelve months.

Galaxy's Milky Way, Andromeda and the Mayan Prophecy Connection
Andromeda is the closest large galaxy to our Milky Way galaxy, and is located 2.5 million light-years from our Sun. It is close enough for telescopes to spy the details of its ringed arms of new stars and hazy blue backbone of older stars.
The Andromeda galaxy is larger than our Milky Way and contains more stars, but the Milky Way is thought to perhaps have more mass due to its larger proportion of a mysterious substance called dark matter. Both galaxies belong to our so-called Local Group, a collection of more than 50 galaxies, most of which are tiny dwarf systems. In its quest to map the whole sky, WISE will capture the entire Local Group.
The almost tangible anxiety astro-physicists and cosmologists are experiencing, in what is now daily historical revelations; is the fact that new galactic discoveries are presenting tangible evidence that do not fit the current models, formats, patterns, formulas of today's theoretical outcomes.
One main surprise is how charged particles have a much greater influence in the galaxy and in our solar system than previously believed. In addition, is the observation of larger rhythmic cycles very similar to the much shorter sunspot solar cycle we monitor today.
Is it possible the Mayan ancestry "knew" of these longer galactic/cosmic cycles which have been passed down over thousands of years? Did the Mayans know what we today call "Cycle 24" has its apex (maximum) in the year 2012? Is it possible the Mayans knew of a larger cycle that would occur simultaneously with Cycle 24 ushering in a pulse of charged particles from our home galaxy the 'Milky Way'? Would such an event have an effect on Earth's magnetic field and Earth's core?

Mitch Battros Research on Sun-Earth
Connection and 2012
Mitch Battros presents fascinating, and sometimes shocking, research from the world's top scientists. After years of dialogue with these experts, Mitch has been accepted into the guarded halls of NASA, NOAA, ESA, Royal Observatory, the US Naval Observatory and other highly esteemed scientific bodies. In addition to the latest research on the Sun's influence on our "weather", Mitch also presents ground-breaking evidence of how the Sun and other celestial orbs produce 'charged particles' and their impact on humanity.
Just as the Sun's solar activity affects the Earth's magnetic field which has a dramatic affect on Earth's weather i.e. earthquakes, floods, volcanoes, hurricanes; so does this wave of electrical currents affect the human body's magnetic field. Mitch also reveals a little-known development from modern medicine known as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS). TMS provides empirical evidence of how magnetic fields can influence human emotions.
Solar Cycle 24 has begun - and it has been predicted by NASA, NOAA and ESA to be up to 50% stronger than its 'record breaking' predecessor Cycle 23 which produced the largest solar flare ever recorded. The Sun will reach its 'apex' (maximum) in late 2011 into 2012.
"I believe it will be the magnetic influence produced by the Sun which will usher in what is described by our ancient ancestors as "the transition" bringing us to a new state-of-being" . (Mitch Battros)

Rietbrock said he hasn’t been able to get in touch with seismologists in Concepcion to discuss the quake, which registered 8.8 on the Richter scale.
“What definitely the earthquake has done is made the Earth ring like a bell,” Rietbrock said.
The magnitude 9.1 Sumatran in 2004 that generated an Indian Ocean tsunami shortened the day by 6.8 microseconds and shifted the axis by about 2.3 milliarcseconds, Gross said.
The changes happen on the day and then carry on “forever,” Benjamin Fong Chao, dean of Earth Sciences of the National Central University in Taiwan, said in an e-mail.
“This small contribution is buried in larger changes due to other causes, such as atmospheric mass moving around on Earth,” Chao said.
|FEMA, NOAA Run Solar Storm Worst-Case Scenario Exercise Could Be Earth's Next Katrina|
Every few decades, the sun experiences a particularly large storm that can release as much energy as 1 billion hydrogen bombs. Officials from Europe and the U.S. say an event like that could leave millions on Earth without electricity, running water and phone service.
A massive solar storm could leave millions of people around the world without electricity, running water, or phone service, government officials say.
Solar storms happen when an eruption or explosion on the surface of the sun sends radiation or electrically charged particles toward Earth. Minor storms are common and can light up the Earth's Northern skies and interfere with radio signals.
Every few decades, though, the sun experiences a particularly large storm. These can release as much energy as 1 billion hydrogen bombs.
How Well Can We Weather The Solar Storm?
The exercise, held in Boulder, Colorado, was intended to investigate "what we think could be close to a worst-case scenario," says Tom Bogdan, who directs the Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder. The Center is a part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.
"It's important to understand that, along with other types of natural hazards, (solar) storms can cause impacts," says Craig Fugate, Administrator of the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), who also took part in the tabletop exercise.
Bogdan and Fugate say that eventually there will be another storm as big as the ones in 1921 and 1859 — a sort of solar Katrina.
But the impact is likely to be far worse than in previous solar storms because of our growing dependence on satellites and other electronic devices that are vulnerable to electromagnetic radiation.
In the tabletop exercise, the first sign of trouble came when radiation began disrupting radio signals and GPS devices, Bogdan says.
Ten or 20 minutes later electrically charged particles "basically took out" most of the commercial satellites that transmit telephone conversations, TV shows and huge amounts of data we depend on in our daily lives, Bogdan says.
"When you go into a gas station and put your credit card in and get some gas," he says, "that's a satellite transaction."
Disabled Satellites Are Just The Beginning
The worst damage came nearly a day later, when the solar storm began to induce electrical currents in high voltage power lines. The currents were strong enough to destroy transformers around the globe," Bogdan says, leaving millions of people in northern latitudes without power.
Without electricity, many people also lost running water, heat, air conditioning and phone service. And places like hospitals had to rely on emergency generators with fuel for only two or three days, Bogdan says.
In many ways, the impact of a major solar storm resembles that of a hurricane or an earthquake, says Fugate.
But a solar Katrina would cause damage in a much larger area than any natural disaster, Fugate says. For example, power could be knocked out almost simultaneously in countries from Sweden to Canada and the U.S., he says. So a lot more people in a lot more places would need help.
Individuals don't need to make any special preparation for a solar storm, Fugate says. The standard emergency kit of water and food and first aid supplies will work just fine.
"If you've got your family disaster plan together, you've taken the steps, whether it be a space storm, whether it be a system failure, whether it be another natural hazard that knocks the power out," Fugate says.
"A newly released NASA report warns that the world has forgotten the power of the sun, creating a technological society susceptible like never before to large infrastructure damage from solar storms. According to the report, the world has grown so dependent on modern technologies without respect of what the sun can and has done, that it's risking major communications, finance, transportation, government and even emergency services disruptions."
Every 11 years, the sun undergoes a furious upheaval. Dark sunspots burst forth from beneath the sun's surface. Explosions as powerful as a billion atomic bombs spark intense flares of high-energy radiation. Clouds of gas big enough to swallow planets break away from the sun and billow into space.
Almost none of the drama of Solar Maximum is visible to the human eye. Look at the sun in the noontime sky and—ho-hum—it's the same old bland ball of bright light.
"The problem is, human eyes are tuned to the wrong wavelength," explains Tom Woods, a solar physicist at the University of Colorado in Boulder. "If you want to get a good look at solar activity, you need to look in the extreme ultraviolet (EUV)."
EUV is a high-energy form of ultraviolet radiation with wavelengths between 1 and 120 nanometers. EUV photons are much more energetic and dangerous than the ordinary UV rays that cause sunburns. Fortunately for humans, Earth's atmosphere blocks solar EUV; otherwise a day at the beach could be fatal.
When the sun is active, intense solar EUV emissions can rise and fall by factors of thousands in just a matter of minutes. These surges heat Earth's upper atmosphere, puffing it up and increasing the drag on satellites. EUV photons also break apart atoms and molecules, creating a layer of ions in the upper atmosphere that can severely disturb radio signals.
To monitor these energetic photons, NASA is going to launch a sensor named "EVE," short for EUV Variability Experiment, onboard the Solar Dynamics Observatory as early as this winter.
"EVE gives us the highest time resolution (10 sec) and the highest spectral resolution (< class="source">(excerpt from Science@NASA http://science.nasa.gov/headlines/y2009/27oct_eve.htm?list1329758 )

During the sun’s most active periods, solar wind disturbances (created by coronal mass ejections and ?ares) impact Earth’s magnetosphere, producing large magnetic storms lasting one or more days. These storms have been known to seriously damage electric power networks; a?ecting communications, damaging satellites and other technology-reliant systems.
Geomagnetic storms induce electrical currents that can have a signi?cant impact on electricaltransmission equipment. Power companies have procedures in place to mitigate the impact of geomagnetic storms, but a worse-case scenario would result in a widespread blackout for a signi?cant period of time. On March 13, 1989, in Montreal, Quebec, six million people were without commercialelectric power for nine hours as a result of a geomagnetic storm. In October 2003, power blackouts in Sweden and signi?cant transformer damage in South Africa were attributed to geomagnetic storms. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate recognizes the potential threat space weather and peak solar activity pose. He has designated FEMA Region VIII to work with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Space Weather Prediction Center in Boulder, Colo. as a center of excellence for space weather prediction. Together, FEMA and NOAAare working in conjunction with the European Unionon a best practice approach to geomagnetic storms.
A workshop is scheduled for February 2010 in Boulder, Colo. that will focus on communication and coordinated response during a solar event.
