Part I

Human & Animal Behavior and the Sun
July 10, 2006

In March 2002, I attended our annual NADA Acupuncture Convention which was held that year in Las Vegas, Nevada.


I have been a practicing member of N.A.D.A. since 1995. At the 2002 convention I delivered a presentation on the Sun-Earth connection. As you will see later in this article, the discipline of acupuncture is probably the most ancient and fitting practice to demonstrate just how much magnetics play a role in human and animal behavior.


As you have witnessed from my 1998 published “Equation”, I have long known of our symbiotic relationship with the Sun.


Sunspots => Solar Flares => Magnetic Shift => Shifting Ocean and Jet Stream Currents => Extreme Weather and Human Disruption

An article published by AFP titled “Whale Strandings Linked to Solar Activity” has brought world attention to a better understanding of just how much solar activity affects our home and ourselves.


The article tells us,

“Surges of solar activity may cause whales to run aground, possibly by disrupting the creatures' internal compasses, according to German scientists.”

It has been hypostasized humans also have an ‘internal compass’, but perhaps not only to provide a sense of direction whether it be ‘day or night’ or ‘up or down’, but may also include ‘intuitive direction’.


This is known as the “Pineal Gland”. The ‘pineal gland’ is a small cone-shaped organ in the brain and sits directly in the middle of the forehead just above the center point of the eyebrows.

The whale article goes on to state:

“University of Kiel researchers Klaus Vaneslow and Klaus Ricklefs looked at sightings of sperm whales found beached in the North Sea between 1712 and 2003. They compared the record with another set of historical data - astronomers' observations of sunspots, an indicator of solar radiation. They found that more whale strandings occurred when the sun's activity was high.”

As a N.A.D.A. Certified Acupuncturist, I have some understanding of magnetics and the human/animal grid.


It has been known for thousands of years there is an energy that runs through all living things.

  • The Chinese call this energy "Chi" or "Qi"

  • The Japanese call it "Ki"

  • The eastern Indians (India) call it "Prana"

  • The Mayans call it "Gaia"

  • ...and of course, Luke Skywalker calls it "The Force"

In the teachings and practice of acupuncture, we are taught early on of the magnetic grid that surrounds the body.


When this energy field is disturbed and becomes out of balance, it manifests as illness (both physical and mental). The very basis of acupuncture is the study of the human gird or energy field and its connection to our anatomy.


The largest part of an acupuncturist study, is identifying and defining the energy points which network through the human/animal body.


These energy points are known as "meridians". Meridians are a network of bio-magnetic grids (energy points) that run through all living things. When the life force energy i.e., "Chi, Ki, Prana, Gaia, The Force" is out of balance, it manifest as illness. What an acupuncturist will do is manipulate certain meridians, depending on the ailment, to bring balance back to the body and mind.

I believe it is the action of charged particles emitted from the Sun in the way of solar flares and CME’s (coronal mass ejections), and its interaction with the Earth’s magnetic field, which is the cause of our extreme weather disruption. I also believe this very same interchange has a direct effect on human/animal behavior.


Could this be the cause of hundreds of whales and dolphins beaching themselves? Also the phenomenon of migrant birds flying in areas never before seen. Could it also be true there is an epidemic of human "mood and personality" disorders such as Depression, Anxiety, Phobias, and Addictions which could be attributed to a changing environment directly related to the Sun?

One might be taken back to learn of statistics which indicate the worlds population has reached record breaking distribution of pharmaceutical prescriptions which would suggest a disproportionate relation to recorded history in the treatment of mood and personality symptoms? Could the "magnetic shift" caused by charged particles which affects our weather, also be effecting humans as well?

Just as the Earth has its magnetic field, so do humans. It makes sense that what would certainly disrupt one, would disrupt the other. Are we indeed connected to the Earth (Universe) in ways current science cannot explain?


Perhaps the answer lays within our ancestors historical data.


Part II

Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS)
May 9, 2006


The more I have learned about TMS the more I am astonished of how is parallels ancient wisdom.


Here in part II of now a three part article (with a possible part 4) I will layout what current science has found in the relationship between magnetic flux (fields) and human/animal behavior. You will see an unsettling connection to what our ancestors have been telling us for centuries.

One of the best known prophecies/predictions of our Mayan elders is the message of a changing paradigm.


Websters definition of ‘paradigm’ is:

One that serves as a pattern or model.

A set or list of all the inflectional forms of a word or of one of its grammatical categories:

the paradigm of an irregular verb.

A set of assumptions, concepts, values, an practices that constitutes a way of viewing reality for the community that shares them, especially in an intellectual discipline.

In the words of the Maya, it is said we are in a time of “change and conflict”. The change is coming from the ‘outside’ in the way of weather, natural phenomena, celestial disturbance, and man made self-inflicted trauma. The conflict comes from the ‘inside’ in the way of personal challenge, grief, bewilderment, depression, anxiety, fear. It is said we are “at the cross roads”.


A time of choosing a new path, deciding a self and community direction, venturing into the unknown, maintaining our true integrity of being. Or, while at this junction of a quickly approaching ‘paradigm shift’, we may choose sameness, stay with what is familiar, place great effort to maintain “predictability”.

At this very moment I cannot tell you which final road I will venture.


As for now, I have made significant changes in my life. Most are very personal so I will not lay them out here, but I can tell you it is ‘not the path of my extended family’. In some ways yes, the path of my father, but in most ways it is not. Many of you have witnessed my personal challenge to mainstream i.e. global warming zealots (which is not the popular politically correct view).


And of course my vocal disdain for the Bush administration. Although the knowledge of this administrations deviance is well known today, my decision began back in March 2003 when preparations were being made to invade Iraq. I can’t think of more than 5 people who supported me at that time. This is just a small personal example of the ‘internal’ and ‘external’ challenges one must take during this fast approaching time the Hopi call ‘The Great Purification.


But it will be the challenges of our character which will be the most difficult.

Ancient text in all forms; from the Bible to the Dead Sea Scrolls to the Mayan calendar, all tell us of challenging times ahead as we adjust, or morph, into our new state of being.


Related to the Earth, it will be in the form of,

  • earthquakes

  • volcano’s

  • tornado’s

  • severe storms

  • heat waves

  • freeze waves

As related to humans, it will be in the form of emotional and mental anguish such as,

  • depression

  • anxiety

  • fatigue

  • rage

  • bewilderment

It will also be in the form of new viruses and diseases.

Magnetic Fields, The Sun, and TMS
In more ways than one would have imagined.


Here I will layout the latest research in what medical science has learned about the influence of magnetic flux or fields. Our ancestors knew there was a connection between the Sun and other celestial events such as GRBs (gamma ray burst) and its effect on us.

Many mental illnesses can be demonstrated to stem from the abnormal behavior of particular brain regions, in much the same way that diabetes is the result of malfunctioning cells in the pancreas. It is believed that some mental disorders are the result of nerve cells being over or under excitable (in other words, it is too easy or too difficult for them to "fire" and work properly).


In this context, successful psychiatric treatment is achieved by modifying these cells' behavior. The range of effects produced by TMS is a clear indication of its potential to work in this way.

One way to visualize how this comes together is to think in computer terms. In many ways we are simply programmed through learned behavior and repetition which develops ‘neuro -pathways’. It gives comfort and provides survivability in our community and environment. When we do things which appear normal and familiar, we can experience a sense of safety and predictability. Here is a recent study which explains how humans and animals are “hard wired”.

When subjects are required to generate a random sequence of numbers they typically produce too many forward and backward ‘counts’ (e.g. 5–6, 4–3).


This counting routine is interpreted as the consequence of interference by over learned tendencies to arrange numbers according to their natural order. This is to say, we unconsciously gravitate towards least resistance. In other words… to what is familiar. Inhibition of such well-learned routines is known to rely on frontal lobe functioning.


When examining differential effects of slow (1 Hz) and fast (10 Hz) repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) over the left or right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) on random number generation (RNG) performance, it was found increased confusion or increased excitement could be controlled by magnetic pulse .

This is to say confusion was significantly reduced after the 1 Hz stimulation compared with baseline, but significantly exaggerated after the 10 Hz stimulation compared with 1 Hz stimulation. In contrast, the sequences of the subjects stimulated over the right DLPFC showed the well-known excess of counting in all conditions (i.e. baseline, 1 Hz and 10 Hz).


These findings confirm the functional importance of specifically the left DLPFC in sequential response production and show, for the first time, that TMS affects cognitive processing in a frequency-dependent manner.

In simple term - the solar cycle has a direct effect on humans/animals

Do you feel tired, fatigued, confused? Have you experienced bouts of depression, anxiety, or mood swings? At the very same time, others experience a sense of clarity, energetic, and sense of rightness. My studies continue in showing a correlation between solar and celestial activity i.e. solar flares, coronal mass ejections and gamma ray burst, and a distinct fluctuation in human and animal behavior.

Activity-dependent modulation of cortical synaptic transmission is a fundamental mechanism involved in learning and memory storage. This modulation has been widely studied in vitro brain slices and in vivo animal models.


More recently, transcranial magnetic stimulation has allowed detection of activity-dependent excitability modulation occurring in the intact human primary motor cortex (MI) after execution of different kinds of motor tasks. Both increased and decreased MI excitability have been described after exercise.


While increased MI excitability is generally considered direct expression of cortical synaptic plasticity, a controversy still exists as to whether decreased MI excitability reflects fatigue of central nervous system (CNS) structures or cortical neuronal reorganization taking place after exercise.



Part III

Is the Sun the Initiator of Human Evolution?
May 10, 2006


Complex and distorted magnetic fields travel with the CME cloud and sometimes interact with the Earth’s own magnetic field to pour tremendous amounts of energy into the space near Earth.

My interest in the Sun-Earth Connection began during the 1997/98 El Niño season. It seemed every single news report was talking about how “El Niño” was causing all this “unusual” weather.


So I asked,

“If that’s true, then what causes an El Niño year rather than the ‘normal’ La Niña year?”

I distinctly remember how our local weather personality would come on month after month telling us, “El Niño will end ‘this month,” but it never did.


It became so silly the local meteorologist would say,

“Okay, folks, El Niño will end February. But of course it didn’t. So they would come back on the next month and say, “Did I say February? I meant March.”

March would come and go, and yes, they would say the same thing.

“Did I say March? I meant April.”

Finally, they became so embarrassed, instead of changing the date, they changed the name.


So instead of changing the date, we heard “live” on our television stations,

“Hi, folks, well this nasty weather is still with us. Remember that El Niño I was telling you about? Well I meant to say it is ‘La Niña.’ Yeah, that’s it, La Niña.”

It was hysterical, but fueled my interest even more.


I just knew they were going to change the name again, so I added my own dialog.

“Hi folks, this is your local weather forecaster. Remember that La Niña I told you about causing all this weird weather? Well, I meant to say it is the new ‘La Cucaracha.’”

This humorous method of research has actually been a blessing. It brought me to the understanding of what was driving El Niño, La Niña, and of course La Cucaracha.


After switching from my studies of NOAA, I could clearly see an undeniable interface with NASA. This is to say, where NOAA leaves off, NASA picks up. So what is driving the ocean currents to shift, which is what we know as Southern Oscillation. Simply put - “shifting ocean currents.” Okay, now I have an understanding of what drives El Niño, La Niña, and La Cucaracha. It is the ocean currents that have somehow been manipulated to shift in unusual ways.


But what causes the shifting of ocean currents?

Now we venture into NASA and their studies of the Sun. It was at this venture in my research that for the first time, I began to understand the Sun – Earth Connection. It was one of those ‘hiding in plain site’ experiences. Soon I quickly turned my attention to the Sun. I wanted to know what was causing the ocean currents to shift. In the course of my research, I found it was the Sun’s impact on the Earth’s magnetic field that had a causal effect on the Earth’s ocean currents.


So could this be the driving force behind shifting ocean currents? Why yes, but how?

As you can see, my pattern of research quickly became a form of “reverse engineering.” I began with the end result, and worked my way back to the ultimate cause. The effect could have only been one source - the Sun. It didn’t take long to log solar activity - CMEs, Solar Flares, Coronal Holes, and Geomagnetic Storms - to see that the ultimate cause of Earth’s ‘extreme weather’ is Sol, the god of life.

On August 23, 2004, I wrote an article of my experience attending my annual mental health symposium of which I receive 'continuing education units' required by the state to maintain my license.


It was refreshing to note the mental health field appears to be making a turn for the better. I was taken back when the second speaker began by saying:

“There are energy fields we are just beginning to explore which may affect the brain related to mood and personality disorders.”

I immediately sat straight up in my chair, giving my full attention.


Needless to say my hand went up within minutes with my onslaught of questions and information interplay. Problem was, there were 53 other clinicians looking at us with a puzzled, but inquisitive look. I could tell immediately, they were not quite sure what the hell we were talking about.

So what were we batting back and forth? The new innovative study of energy fields having to do with magnetic field stimulation. Those of you old enough may remember the 1960s and early 1970s when we used the terms such as: “negative vibes.”


Well, those “negative vibes” could be an electric magnetic field that surrounds all humans, or better stated, all living things. To many of us, this is really not all that new, but here, mainstream science is beginning to notice. Better yet, fully acknowledge. This means that funds have become available for further research into areas many of us have known about but could not quite wrap our brains or understanding around. (Chinese healers have known about all this for 5,000 years - that’s where acupuncture came from.)

Of course we discussed neurotransmitters and receptor sites as to distribution of acetycholine, dopamine, norepinephrine, serotonin, GABA, endorphins and enkephalins as it relates to mood and personality disorders.


But the new twist of the day is how to treat such symptomology with electro-magnetic stimulus, proteins, and ‘empathetic cessation.’ Again, nothing new to many of us, but I can’t tell you of the expression on my face and the matching feeling inside as I witnessed a conservative, mainstream scientific body speak in such terms.

To summarize, what I witnessed over the three days of this symposium was an unconscious acknowledgment of what our ancestors have been telling us for centuries. Simply put, we are evolving into another phase of being.


Is this not in perfect alliance with what the Mayan Calendar has told us?

“We are now in the time of escalated expanding consciousness. The time in which our heightened intuition is becoming fully developed and our intuitive nature is to be acknowledged and exercised.”

But it is also a time of challenge, or testing.


It will be important to remain in our integrity. To remain in truth is essential for a more smooth transition. Those who may be more attached to status quo are likely to experience high levels of stress and potential physical breakdown.


Instead of going by the mantra of “the way things 'ought to be',” giving the impression there is some rigid standard to abide as written by Rush Limbaugh, we may do much better going by the suggestion of,

“we’re all just kind of guessing.”

This suggests it is better to remain flexible, open-minded, and humble as our fast-changing paradigm is in the act of unfolding.
