A recent client shared with me the precious knowledge she had gained
from a very wise old woman.
"What is the secret to life?",
...she asked the woman, expecting some
long, drawn-out philosophical answer, calling upon the heavens and
the earth to merge together in a cosmic dance of Foreverness,
revealing infinity in singularity ... complexity in simplicity ...
unity within diversity ....
"Adapt," the woman replied.
changes we are now seeing in the Solar System,
and more importantly, their effects on the Earth itself, are not
reversible -- at least not in the short term, with our present
glaring lack of knowledge and awareness of what is occurring. Some
major changes are being asked of us ... in the whole way in which we
run a "civilized" society. Do we listen to the wisdom of our Elders,
and adapt, or do we go on pretending that "nothing is going on?" How
much more political effort will be required to maintain these walls
of denial as the global situation becomes increasingly perilous, as
seen from a conventional -- shall we say -- uninformed perspective?
THE "RELIGION" OF SKEPTICISM
NO LONGER SERVES US
Those who give themselves the professional label of "skeptic" have a
standard code of beliefs. They feel that any time someone presents
new and alternative concepts, especially if they do so with a sense
of agitation, defensiveness or assertions of some grand social
phenomenon that prevents their material from being publicly
recognized, then you obviously have a hoaxster or crackpot on your
hands, and their work can immediately (and safely!) be discounted.
Yet, for the vast majority of our readers, statistically numbering
in the millions (based on our website server data) -- there can be
no more doubt that humanity is currently engaged in a mass,
collective form of "sleepwalking" ... and that this individual
ignorance is encouraged on a societal and governmental level, by the
holding back of critical information that could literally "change
Every night on the world-wide "Coast-to-Coast
AM" radio program, for example, a variety of guests are
speaking of "new truths" that humanity desperately needs. Any one of
these truths -- if acknowledged by the mainstream media, and
actively promoted -- could vastly accelerate this still-too-slow
collective "awakening" in progress ....
Let’s take one of Richard’s main arguments -- reiterated time and
time again, over the course of the literal decade that he’s been
appearing as a guest on "Coast":
What could possibly be a bigger (or more "transformational") story
than the confirmation -- however remote the mainstream’s purported
likelihood of "truth" -- that our neighboring planet, Mars, has a
giant, mile-wide sculpture of a human face lying on its reddish
sands (below) ... staring upward into
the satellite camera just a few miles southeast, and you see on the
same official NASA photography a giant, five-sided, (pentagonal,)
half mile high (!), extremely symmetrical pyramid
(click left image).
pan the camera just a few miles to the upper left -- northeast of
this amazing pyramid (and now southwest of the Face), completing the
third leg of a perfect equilateral ("tetrahedral!") triangle -- and
you see a cluster of more "anomalous objects" ....
(click right image)
Two of which are unmistakably four-sided -- again, perfectly
symmetrical pyramids -- just like what we see beside the Great
Sphinx ... in the form of the Great Pyramid, at Gizeh, Egypt!
Only, these pyramids on Mars are half a
mile high ... and literally miles across, dwarfing the Great Pyramid
And as you dig a little deeper into this extraordinary set of
obvious "Martian ruins," you find that these monuments are also
aligned with each other in ways that spell out a unique, geometric
"Message" ... opening a door to a whole new form of physics. (I
wrote my own detailed analysis and summary of this "Message"
yet -- despite all this remarkable evidence, gathered all in one
place on the Martian surface -- the only mainstream media coverage
the "Face" ever receives consists of crude attempts to make it still
appear as merely a psychological "trick of light and shadow"; the
deliberately degraded reproductions (right), again and again washing
out all of the highly detailed photographic contrast in the original
digital NASA images (despite existing, sophisticated,
state-of-the-art computer enhancements of the data --
as seen above
Until, only these widely-circulated, "crappy reproductions" are
indelibly imprinted on the planetary consciousness ... leaving only
what Art Bell once called "a lousy Cat Box image."
Of course, the nearby, astonishingly important pyramids -- and their
obviously key relationship to the scientific reality of a stunning,
"Sphinx-like" Face on Mars -- is never included in these widely
For this terrified mindset ... none of this can possibly exist!
I first read "The Monuments of Mars" in 1993, as a sophomore in
college. I soon had devoured the entire book and could effortlessly
discourse on its contents, as nothing else seemed more important to
me at the time. And I was also naive enough to try to turn on many
of my fellow college students to what was going on.
"Just look at the pictures," I told
them. "It’s all right there, staring up at you from the barren
Martian sands ... It’s a Face. And those are definitely pyramids
right next to it."
"Oh, my God, you’re right," they would exclaim, accepting the
You could visually watch as they almost
lost their balance (if they were standing up at the time). A good
number of them were extremely excited and very grateful to have
learned more of the astonishing real history of our Solar System
However, I soon realized that for some people, this knowledge
quickly induced a state of "dissociation" or "cognitive dissonance"
-- where basically the information was too intense for them to
handle ... and they cracked.
Typically, after their initial exposure to the "impossible," these
people would avoid me for a few days, and then when they came back,
they had "forgotten" almost everything that I told them! Some would
accuse me of being in a "cult," or having accessed some type of
nameless, faceless evil that they barely even wanted to mention,
since it caused them such fear ... which may well be the fear of
It was as if their subconscious minds had said,
"If there even is a
God, he certainly wouldn’t have been so careless as to put
intelligent, human life like us on any other planet besides Earth.
No way this is true. Aren’t we good enough for him? Why would he
need to make any others besides us?"
And then the sense of abandonment and victimhood would kick in
full-force, wrapped in a cloak of prideful self-defense: "Look at
the fruits of our musicians, mathematicians, composers, chemists,
artists, builders, poets, entrepreneurs, writers, inventors,
filmmakers, humanitarians, peacemakers and great heroes. Sure, we
have some problems, but come on! Are we just a cosmic "Plan B," left
on the back burner in case the other inhabited planets don’t work
out? No. God wouldn’t do that to us. He couldn’t. If God even exists
at all, then we are obviously his only people ... his chosen people.
Any other answer would be the biggest insult to our uniqueness that
we have ever faced as a world society."
At the conscious level, others might just bury these deep fears,
fall back and "punt" the more intellectually "mainstream" notion
that "there is no scientific evidence" for the existence of life on
any other planet besides Earth ... especially not intelligent life.
In these instances, if I tried to suggest otherwise, they did not
even listen, and would just hide behind an aggressive and
argumentative wall of denial.
They had to return themselves to a position where they "knew it all"
-- and if such a massive story were true, they "certainly wouldn’t
be hearing it from a college sophomore in the non-smoking section of
the Food Court." After many such "confrontations", some would
continue to acquaint with me, but only if I never brought up "the
Face and Pyramids on Mars" -- the would-be symbol of their cosmic
abandonment -- again ....
Typically I would see less and less of these folks after this ...
and the "friendship" would ultimately just dissolve.
On and on I wondered: what could possibly make these young,
otherwise open-minded students (paradoxically, enrolled in an
institution of "higher learning" ...) suddenly turn -- from being so
dazzled one day that they were almost exploding with enthusiasm at
the revolutionary information -- to being completely "reset" into
their old patterns, and fighting off the Mars data with an emotional
vengeance, the next?!
one big problem with a Martian civilization: they’re not there
anymore. And things aren’t looking so good here, either. Would a
benevolent God let this happen? ... Ever? ... Again?
So, could it be that the Martian Monuments -- in both their sheer
existence, now in ruins, and in their redundant geometric layout --
are giving us a literal "warning?"
Could it be that we have reached a moment in our own history where
this warning is obviously of critical -- and potentially immediate
Could it be that these otherwise inexplicable reactions were
revealing overwhelming subconscious emotional feelings of "a
powerlessness to do anything to heed this warning ...?"
Could it be that my erstwhile friends concluded -- albeit completely
subconsciously -- that "if this is true, then someone else is going
to take care of it ... because there is always a happy ending, and
therefore I don’t need to worry about it ... or even remember that I
The more a person turns the story around in their head, the more he
or she comes back to this:
If Mars was "once like Earth," with
an obviously incredibly advanced civilization (who somehow built
artificial structures literally miles across!), but which are
now in ruins ... then where did they go? Why has their "fourth
planet" now become a dusty, frozen, desiccated wreck? Why have
we not found any records of this most extraordinary event in
Solar System history ... or, found any evidence of "survivors"
... on this planet?
Or ... have we?
In Richard’s long-awaited new DVD series "God,
Man and ET," (which I too am eagerly awaiting in the mail
at present, BTW -- and I can’t tell you how many of our projects
have been delayed by all the time he’s invested on this one, over
the past year), these fundamental, overarching questions are
addressed in great detail. In a variety of religious, social and
spiritual traditions, from all around our planet,
from the ancient Sumerian cuneiform tablets, there is evidence that
not all of "the Martians" simply disappeared ....
Some of them may have come here!
The problem then becomes how you interpret the rich, complex,
multi-cultural historical data that has been collected over
literally thousands of years -- which includes a remarkable series
of (until now ...) enigmatic references in the Judeo-Christian
scriptures ... which some scholars on the "God, Man and ET" series
for the first time effectively demonstrate --
Could have come from Mars itself!
Are there conditions now occurring in our world that may, in a
worst-case scenario, lead to a fate similar to that of Mars? How
much has the recent Sumatra quake pushed people closer to thinking
along such lines, regardless of "all that skepticism" that fights to
come crashing down -- insisting arrogantly (somewhat like whistling
in the dark, as we pass an old graveyard ...) that we "know it all"
... like a bunch of bratty (but ultimately frightened) teenagers?
These are worthwhile, even vital questions. And let us never forget
one basic, obvious need that has been created by this disaster ...
the survivors of this powerful, civilization-changing tsunami need
food, shelter, clothing and medical care. I am honored to report,
just before going to press with this article, that Richard has
pledged 10 percent of the gross from the sale of each DVD set -- 12
dollars per order, one for each country affected -- directly into
tsunami disaster relief efforts.
As for the bigger questions raised ... by the lost ancient
civilization of Mars, the interplanetary climate change now (again?)
underway, and the tsunami ... I believe that, in this case, we are
not talking about a sequence of doom at all, but rather a collective
"dark night of the soul" for humanity ... when it is viewed as a
single organism in symbiosis with the Earth.
What, exactly, do I mean by that? A "dark night of the soul" sounds
pretty scary ... until you realize that it is the classic pattern of
how chemically dependent people get sober, how overeaters lose
weight, how materialists become humanists, how hurting turns into
healing. As the old metaphysical cliché goes, "The darkest hour is
before the dawn."
You have to confront the full, ugly truth of how you have been
hurting yourself (even if you think you’ve only been hurting others,
whom you’ve conveniently dehumanized out of your own sense of fear
and abandonment,) before you can be restored to sanity.
So, this "collective initiation" is not intended for doom at all;
rather, it directly triggers the awakening from the very cultural
slumber that most of us are now becoming more aware of. And most
importantly, we get to choose how far it has to go before we learn
the inevitable lesson, and change ....
Like an incommunicative, emotionally unavailable spouse -- with
tight, pursed lips, both arms firmly locked over the chest, eyes
contemptuously meditating on a single spot of the carpet, and one
knee jerking mindlessly away -- who finally admits partial
responsibility for the crippling marital problems ... but only when
it has gotten so bad that they were forced to attend a counseling
session, right after Christmas ... we are all waking up to how our
our hard-and-fast, unquestioning wall of selfishness, isolationism
and denial is "destroying our marriage" ... with this world, and
with each other.
We need to change. And the sooner the better.
By opening our hearts and minds to a greater truth, we can have an
immediate impact on those we interact with ... and this change can
ultimately create a new "critical mass" where those who cling to the
old ways become increasingly unable to promote and project their
separatist, old-school, and increasingly deadly views around the
It’s happening now. We are creating it as you read these words.
Like many others, I use the term "Ascension" as a secular,
single-word catch-phrase to describe the mass spiritual renaissance
that is now occurring within humanity, one person at a time. The
"2012" topic is, from what George Noory, the host of "Coast-to-Coast
AM" tells me, the hottest question on everyone’s mind right now.
Some people think that it is as simple as sitting back and waiting
for a "cosmic trigger" to be switched on at the tail end of 2012.
Many others profess a massive die-off of the human population
through one of a variety of means, and therefore paint the entire
event as a scenario of mass doom, to be mightily feared and prepared
for with a wide variety of survivalist wares.
The majority of the public, of course, is still consciously unaware
of the significance of this moment -- derived from the end-date of
the Mayan Calendar (but all too connected in the minds of those who
are aware, with apocalyptic, "End of the World" scenarios). But, as
evidence that there is some kind of subconscious general perception
that "something" could be coming, just look at the number of
mainstream movies that capitalize on this (apparently) innate human
fear ... including Art Bell and Whitley Strieber’s recent "The Day
The irony of the whole situation is that if humanity became aware,
collectively, of the truths that this new science is revealing,
(which I have summarized in my
three-volume "Convergence" series,
culminating in "Divine
Cosmos,") the overall effect would indeed be "an
Ascension." Even on the technological level, we could suddenly
advance to a point where we had limitless free-energy devices,
anti-gravity propulsion, super-light-speed travel, teleportation,
profound new healing and consciousness enhancing technologies ...
(We would also know why any given planetary society would want to
build pyramids on their world, once they understand
the simple, fantastic technology behind them
-- a technology that harnesses a non-electromagnetic, very real
source of energy that the Russians call "torsion fields" and what
Richard would call "Hyperdimensional energy" ... a technology that
is still far more advanced than what our mainstream scientists
understand or accept.)
With the full range of technologies that this new science provides,
humanity could literally touch the stars, and it would be far easier
for us to alleviate hunger and deprivation around the world than at
present. Without such crushing poverty and desperation, the overall
incentive for instigating wars and conflicts would be largely
reduced, and we could work towards a true acceptance of ourselves
and of others.
For some embittered, trauma-hardened readers, true world peace may
sound like a pathetic dream-come-true fantasy befitting sparkle-eyed
young denizens of the Student Union Building’s Food Court. But I
personally do not believe that the changes we are now seeing are
simply intended to kill us off like a malignant Earth parasite. I
get thousands of emails a month from sober, grounded people who
share remarkable stories of synchronicity, hope and triumph, where
they have become convinced that there is a force greater than
themselves that guides, protects and cares for them. And with such a
volume of data -- including my own experiences -- I feel that I am
making a responsible decision to "trust the process" as it now
unfolds before us. Those who profess doom may simply not have the
vision to look beyond the fear and realize that we are in a
collective initiation, whose ultimate results will create a new
Golden Age for humanity, as so many ancient prophecies have
At the same time, we cannot simply sit back and wait to be "saved"
by benevolent forces in the universe outside of ourselves. We would
be well advised to share and utilize this new information with
responsibility, and learn to take care of ourselves ... and each
other. The unprecedented worldwide outpouring of compassion and
humanitarian aid for the victims of the Sumatra quake and tsunami
is, for me, a very positive sign that we are heading in the right
direction. I hope you can join me at my upcoming lecture and
workshop at the Conscious Life Expo in Los Angeles, California this
February, where we can discuss interplanetary climate change, soul
evolution and the building of a new world in far more detail and
emphasize the spiritual aspects even more concretely:
And on the personal level, Richard and I have decided to set aside
any of our technical or spiritual areas of disagreement (I mean,
he’s allowing me to express my personal metaphysical opinions for
the first time, on an otherwise strictly "scientific" website ...),
to focus on a crucial common cause -- creating a better world for
ourselves ... and for our children, grandchildren and
great-grandchildren as well. In order to do that, our societies
would ideally begin by providing for our basic safety -- and when
science makes advances that can significantly increase that safety,
it is up to the rest of us to educate ourselves and lobby others for
positive social change.
So let’s look more deeply at the science that remarkably, precisely
predicted this tragic earthquake literally half way around the
planet ... and explore its usefulness. I do believe that we still
have time to make the difference. As you are about to see, there is
a lot more involved with earthquake activity than just random acts
of terrestrial "entropic devastation."
you see on the right is a scanned image of my own copy of "The
Jupiter Effect," which was first written in 1974 (revised
I will first direct your attention to an excerpt from page 84. Notice that even back in the 1970s, some more open-minded
scientists were aware that an interplanetary climate change was
already well underway, as seen with the changes of the solar
activity -- here noted as an unexpected increase in "gamma ray
emissions from the Sun."
Most importantly for the technical aspects of this article, however,
we will focus on the surprising correlation discovered in the early
1960’s -- between rising solar activity ... the speed of the Earth’s
rotation ... and the occurrence of earthquake activity, immediately
Some key excerpts ....
Early August 1972 witnessed two of
the greatest solar flares ever recorded. Only in July 1959 has
anything similar been seen, and that flare in turn occurred at a
time when the overall activity of the Sun was more pronounced
than at any time since 1610, when Galileo first recorded the
existence of sunspots.
great 1972 solar flare [click image left]
is even more remarkable since it occurred at a time when the Sun
was, on the whole, unusually quiet. It came almost literally
’out of the blue,’ and was totally unexpected by astronomers.
Of the many spacecraft that were in orbit in the summer of 1972,
some, like Pioneer 10, were on long missions to the depths of
space, while others were performing routine observations of the
Sun and space ...[near] Earth. OSO-7 [one of the latter],
carried instruments which operate at the frequencies of gamma
rays, which are extremely energetic [ultra-short wavelength]
bursts of electromagnetic radiation. Both satellites [though
widely separated across the Solar System (Pioneer 10 was enroute
to Jupiter!)], recorded the two August flares. The observed
[gamma ray] radiation bore the characteristic spectral signature
of elements such as carbon and oxygen -- elements already known
to exist in the Sun, but observed for the first time [in 1972]
at [these] gamma ray frequencies... [emphasis added]
But, this was not the most important
"anomaly" observed in connection with these dramatic 1972 events.
The major "flare explosions" on the Sun in early August also seemed
to directly reach out ... and somehow affect the fundamental,
measurable rotation of the Earth!
Continuing to quote ....
...It does now seem that Dr. A. Danjon, [Director] of the Paris Observatory, might have been
treated a little harshly [in 1960] when the scientific community
dismissed, because of lack of [a clear theoretical connection
for] his claim ... that the similar great solar flare of 1959
produced [the same effect:]
A sudden change [a 0.85 millisecond increase] in the
[fundamental] length of day [LOD] on Earth... [emphasis added]
particular graph (right -- Figure 15 from "The Jupiter Effect")
clearly shows the main effect which Dr. Danjon announced "to the
sensation of the delegates" at the General Assembly of the
International Union of Geodesy and Geophysics in Helsinki, in 1960
-- that Earth’s length of day (LOD), remarkably, tracks the number
of cosmic rays reaching Earth: when the cosmic ray count is
elevated, the Earth spins slightly faster; when the count is
depressed, the Earth’s day correspondingly lengthens ... by an
equally tiny amount.
In truth, this remarkable correlation has nothing to do with "cosmic
rays" (which are simply high-energy atomic particles, streaming
through the Solar System from the farthest reaches of the Galaxy and
beyond ...). The correlation of cosmic rays and Earth’s rotation is
due to the fact that during the Sun’s well-known, 11-year "sunspot
cycle," incoming charged cosmic ray particles are effectively
deflected from the inner Solar System -- via the Sun’s increased
solar wind and extended interplanetary magnetic field, which act as
a magnetic shield for the planets during the Sun’s peak "sunspot
The fact that the Earth’s basic rate of rotation is simultaneously
affected (somehow!) by this well-known solar cycle -- which is
separately affecting the greater or lesser screening of "incidental"
cosmic rays -- is the extraordinary fact!
Some underlying, unseen physics -- somehow affecting both phenomena,
solar activity and Earth’s rotation -- must be going on ....
From Gribbin and Plagemann again:
Scientists are -- usually quite
rightly -- unwilling to accept evidence like this until it can
be related in some way to the broad framework of their
[perceived] understanding of "what makes the Universe tick" ....
[They] are sometimes capable of dismissing even the most
[blatant] piece of evidence if it does not agree with their
preconceived notions [regarding] what the world ought to be
Figure 16 (also from "The Jupiter
Effect" -- below) shows the change in the Earth’s spin, in the form
of AT-UT2 (a system for measuring the Earth’s inconstant speed of
rotation in the 1960’s and 70’s, via "recurring stellar transits,"
which are compared to an ultra-stable atomic maser clock as a
separate time reference). The graph spans a six-month period, from
May to October 1972.
The first of two remarkable 1972 solar flares that summer erupted on
4 August; the arrow in the figure (below, left)
marks 3 August --
one day before the flare itself! At this point, inexplicably, there
was a sudden jump in the record of AT-UT2 ... and the slope of the
graph sharply inflected upward ... not to return completely to the
previous LOD slope for almost three months!
This was quite a remarkable confirmation of Danjon’s original
observations -- voiced over a decade before the application of
ultra-precise atomic timekeeping technology would allow conclusive
measurement of his startling proposition ... that solar activity
could physically affect (though, minutely) the seemingly "immutable
rotation of the Earth!"
all this time, we will probably never know for sure whether
Danjon incorrectly measured the changing spin of the Earth at
the time of the great solar flare of July 1959 ... or whether he
was correct [thus, being the first to determine a "cause and
effect" relationship between solar activity and the Earth’s spin
rate ...], and that it was his detractors who slipped up. The
jump, if it was real [in 1959], was less than one millisecond
[one thousandth of a second -- barely detectable, utilizing the
then-best-available 1950’s stellar transit and chronometer
techniques (as opposed to the thousands-of-times-more-precise
satellites, atomic clocks and quasar radio astronomy
observations of today ...)].
Gribbin and Plagemann, in 1974,
From our point of view it is also
interesting that there was an above average incidence of small
earthquakes (microseismic activity) just after the July 1959
solar event. [Thus,] on balance, Danjon’s theory [of a causal
solar flare/terrestrial spin rate "connection"
(click image above right) -- was supported
in 1960] by an impressive weight of [other] circumstantial
evidence in his favor.
We are not concerned with proving a case in a court of law, but
in working out an early warning system for great earthquakes
(remember?); let us leave it that [because of these correlated
observations] there is a strong [empirical] case that unusual
solar activity causes increased seismic activity ... by
[somehow] changing the Earth’s rate of spin [thus, its "angular
momentum"], and that there may have been such a sudden change at
the time of the great solar flares of July, 1959 and August,
1972. [emphasis added]
So, we can see here (especially in
Figure 15, from "The Jupiter Effect"
above), that there is a
direct, measurable correlation between increases in solar activity
... and corresponding sudden "jumps" in the length of day on Earth.
Immediately after the Sumatra quake, rumors began to circulate that
the massive energy release -- in addition to triggering the
catastrophic tsunami, which has now claimed over 150,000 lives --
had also directly affected the Earth’s spin!
Richard Gross and Benjamin Fong Chao,
of JPL and the NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, within a few days
presented a series of calculations (but not actual measurements),
indicating that the Earth likely "spun faster by 3 microseconds (3
millionths of a second), and tilted over by about an inch ..." as a
result of the magnitude 9 Sumatra quake.
But, as we have seen from Gribbin and Plagemann, even in 1974
significant evidence existed (going back to the observations of
anomalously increased seismic activity, in the wake of the 1959
solar event) that it is the other ways around; sudden changes in
Earth’s rotation (caused by solar flares) also trigger increased
In line with this key observation, leading Indian seismologist
Dr. J. G. Negi, quoted in the Times of India
January 10th -- three weeks after the Sumatra Event --
revealed that Earth rotational observations made between October 15
and November 30, by the International Earth Rotation Service (IERS),
had recorded early signals of an increase in something called "the
Chandler Wobble." The Chandler Wobble (below) is a tiny (about 40
foot), periodic "nodding" of the rotational axis of the Earth,
normally occurring in a period of about 14 months -- a bit like the
minute wobbling of a spinning top.
Negi revealed that:
"...during this period [leading up
to the Sumatra quake], the wobble deviation from the expected
position for this [seasonal] period was approximately 0.75
degrees, which is significant."
These wobble deviations were [soon] followed by a [major]
earthquake in the southern hemisphere near Macquarie Trench near
New Zealand, on December 23, with a magnitude of 8.1. The
earthquakes above magnitude 8 are called "great earthquakes" --
and occur [only] once a year on average. But on December 26,
only three days later, the northern hemisphere experienced [the
tragic] quake of 9.0 magnitude [off] northern Sumatra.
"... The wobble of the earth’s rotation clearly anticipated
these two events," Negi said. He recalled that there is a
revolutionary theory, which was given in 1967 by L. Mansinha and
D. L. E. Smiley, two scientists from Canada, which says that
wobbles are co-seismic with great earthquakes.
In the case of the recent events in December, 2004, Negi said,
"The big question is whether earth got jolted after these two
[major] earthquakes, or did the prior jolting of the planet, as
was shown in the increased wobble, build up pressure to cause
great earthquakes in both hemispheres ... within three days
As Richard explained on his most recent
"Coast-to-Coast AM" radio appearance (December
28th, 2004) -- the current mainstream geophysical models
(ala NASA’s Gross and Chao’s recent press releases) assume that the
earthquakes are the cause ... and an increased spin rate and wobble
of the Earth will be the result.
Yet, if solar activity is directly triggering such "earth changes,"
by minutely lengthening the day (as proven by the Naval Observatory
record of Earth rotation before, during, and after the August ’72
major solar flares ...), we have a far more interesting mechanism on
our hands ... especially if these sudden LOD and Chandler Wobble
changes can cause (ala India’s seismologist, Dr. Negi) catastrophic
However, look at the graphs again (Figures 16 and 17 -- reprinted
Note that the arrow on Figure 16 marks
August 3 -- the last "normal" data point on the expanded "trend
line" (Figure 17) for the next three months. The following day --
but before the first of the two major "super flares" had erupted (at
6:20 Greenwich Mean Time) -- the next data point (for August 4)
falls far above this line ... indicating the Earth has now slowed
significantly (by several milliseconds ...). But--- Before the onset of the actual flare
the next few days, as several more flares erupt from this major
sunspot region -- culminating with the "granddaddy" of all solar
flares, on August 7, 1972 (left) -- the spin of the Earth lags
farther and farther behind its previous rotation rate (the sharp
upward inflection of the data points in Figures 16-17). Then, after
a few days, the data points abruptly fall back towards the "normal"
line ... but they now define a new slope from that produced before
the onset of the major August 4th flare. Only resuming the previous
trend line ... after almost 90 days.
Clearly, something major disturbed the rotation of our entire planet
in August, 1972 ... persisting afterward for months. Something ...
which, inexplicably, began affecting Earth before its supposed
"cause" had even exploded on the surface of the Sun!
This "impossibility" clearly calls for an "alternative
solar/terrestrial physics" -- with some currently unseen "driver"
initiating both the sudden Earth wobble and rotational changes ...
thus triggering sudden major earthquakes ... while also causing the
observed increased solar flare activity. Some kind of unseen,
"underlying mechanism ...."
Precisely like Richard’s interconnected "Hyperdimensional Physics."
Just this past November, 2004,
a team at the Max Planck Institute in Germany,
led by a Dr. Solanki, discovered that the Sun is now more
active than it has been in at least the last 8000 years (below).
This discovery was made by comparing data from Carbon-14 deposits in
tree rings with several other well-known, well-documented historical
indicators of solar activity. This is by far the most arresting
statistic to show us exactly how rare and unique the changes we are
now seeing in our Solar System really are:
I was surprised that Solanki et al. did
not come right out and admit something that the graph speaks to even
more dramatically: the current level of solar activity (in red --
above) is actually HIGHER than the shaded gray area (to the left on
the top pane, and then expanded to full width in the bottom pane) he
compared the current activity levels with, from 8000 years before.
The last time that the Sun was MORE active than it is now ...
almost 11,000 years ago -- a time that constantly turns up as
correlated with "the fall of the purported ancient civilization of
So, if solar activity is now at an all-time high, compared to the
previous 11,000 years, and earthquake activity is on the rise,
(along with changes in the length of a given day on Earth), are
there any similar changes that we can recognize in any other planet
in the solar system?
As documented in Richard’s recent article, "How
the New Saturn Rotation Rate Saved the Cassini Mission,"
we now know that the length of day on Saturn has indeed also
increased ... and if there is a longer day, it means that the planet
itself is slowing down. And this astonishing deceleration can’t be
due to "tides!"
Here is a rather lengthy excerpt from
Richard’s previously published paper -- since it has again become so
crucial to our own discussion here:
Based on radio astronomy
observations conducted between April 29, 2003 and June 10, 2004
(well over a year …) by the Cassini Radio and Plasma Wave
NASA has just announced (June
28, 2004) a new period for Saturn’s internal rotation:
10 hours, 45 minutes, 45 seconds
(with a formal error of “plus or minus 36 seconds” …).
The major surprise is that this
figure is significantly longer than a similarly-derived “radio
period” determined by the Planetary Radio Astronomy (PRA)
experiment on the two Voyager spacecraft, which flew by Saturn
only nine months apart almost a quarter century ago. That period
was 10 hours, 39 minutes, 24 seconds … with a formal error of
“plus or minus 7 seconds.”
Among the “major
changes” we’ve been watching in the Saturn system
recently, this belated new admission – less than two days away
from Cassini’s Orbital Insertion around Saturn – must rank as
the most significant change. Altering the “day length” of a
major planet – in this case, of the second most massive planet
in the solar system -- even by six minutes (only about one
percent), is not a “trivial” change. But, scientists associated
with the Cassini Project seem totally baffled by this alteration
... which may explain some of the hesitancy in its announcement.
of Iowa Space Physicist Don Gurnett (right), head of the team
that is analyzing these radio emissions, said June 28th:
“Although Saturn’s radio
rotation period has clearly shifted by a substantial amount
over the 24 years since the Voyager measurements, I don’t
think any of us could conceive of any process that would
cause the rotation of the entire planet to actually slow
down. So it appears that there is some kind of slippage
between the deep interior of the planet and the magnetic
field, which controls the charged particles responsible for
the radio emission [emphasis added]."
The key here is his revealing
“I don’t think any of us could
conceive of any process that would cause the rotation of an
entire planet to slow down ….”
Obviously, Gurnett is forgetting
about this one – the Earth.
Since 1972, there have been two timekeeping methods for keeping
track of Earth’s “day” – the usual one, astronomically measuring
the Earth’s rotation relative to distant background objects in
the Universe (stars, quasars, radio galaxies, etc.); and a newer
one, via the very precise energy exchanges occurring within
cesium and hydrogen atoms, so-called “atomic clocks.”
But, soon after atomic clocks were compared with Earth’s
astronomical rotation, it was noticed that the Earth was --
mysteriously – slowing down ….
the US Naval Observatory:
"In order to keep the cumulative
difference in UT1-UTC (less than 0.9 seconds), a leap second
is added to the atomic time to decrease the difference
between the two. This leap second can be either positive or
negative depending on the Earth’s rotation. Since the first
leap second in 1972, all leap seconds have been positive. This
reflects the general slowing trend of the Earth due to tidal
braking [emphasis added].”
Since 1972, a total of over
seconds” have been added to Earth’s day length (!) – an enormous
slowing of the Earth’s rotation in such a brief period of time.
Obviously, Don Gurnett simply did not remember this fundamental
fact of life on Earth … or, he wouldn’t have made the statement:
“I don’t think any of us could conceive of any process that
would cause the rotation of an entire planet to slow down ….”
The Hyperdimensional implications for this new discovery are
profound … as are those for the Cassini Mission.
These points of interest are part of an
ongoing investigation we are conducting, soon to continue in Part
Four of "Interplanetary
Day After Tomorrow?", so not
every question will be hazarded with an answer at this point... some
of the mystery will have to stand.
If you still haven’t had enough, consider below a few excerpts that
came from Richard Pasichnyk’s 2002 breakthrough research work, "The
Vital Vastness, Volume Two."
Although RCH and I differ with many of Pasichnyk’s analytical
conclusions, and with one another on some others, we both agree that
he has assembled a prodigious number of essential mainstream
references -- "essential" for anyone seriously interested in
tracking, with solid, scientific research, the accelerating rate of
fundamental change now taking place across our Solar System ...
including those happening right here on our own imperiled planet.
As you are about to see, there are a variety of carefully documented
linkages now evident between the "Solar System / earthquake
connections" outlined here ... and other "at-a-distance" phenomena
also being quietly explored by Science. These connections cannot
help but ultimately advance our fundamental understanding of Hyperdimensional Physics -- which can, in turn, teach us how to
predict, prepare for ... and someday prevent ... major earthquakes
like "Sumatra," as well as other, equally catastrophic "earth
Enjoy ... and learn.
To me, this first excerpt is one of the most substantial (though,
Richard -- based on this own extensive analysis of lunar "TLP" --
disagrees ...), as it equates the appearance of "luminous phenomena"
on the Moon with terrestrial earthquakes. As readers of
Divine Cosmos are aware, my "aetheric
earthquake model" posits the release of high-density, high-pressure
luminous matter from the Earth’s core as a primary cause of
earthquakes -- so in this new system, it makes sense that the Moon
might also display similar behavior at the same time:
[P. 964:] One physicist [Dr. Nikolai Kozyrev in 1972] disclosed that all major [terrestrial]
earthquakes can be ... [forecast] simply by observing the lunar
surface. Seismic events on both the Earth and Moon are so
precisely timed that it is “as if the Moon were in direct
contact with the Earth; as if it were its seventh continent.”
Data from 639 major earthquakes were compared with 370 events
listed in NASA’s catalog of transient lunar phenomena (TLP) for
the period between 1904 and 1967 ... These data made it evident
that events on the Earth and the Moon are mutually registered
with a time lag of up to three days.327
For example, consider two events. Two deep-focus earthquakes
occurred on 31 March 1969, and the following day a transient red
spot was noted in the Moon’s Aristarchus Crater. On 20-21
September earthquakes were followed by another spot in the same
crater. Both events took place around the equinoxes, also
displaying the solar linkage.327
The records indicated that TLP came, either or both, before and
after earthquakes with a peak of two to three days prior to and
after the event. Earthquakes are most likely to take place when
these peaks coincide with high tides, and the Moon is at its
closest approach to the Earth (perigree).327

Processes of the Earth and the Moon. pp.220-225 in (eds) S.K.

In this next excerpt, we see that
Uranus’ heliocentric position -- relative to the Sun and Earth --
has been correlated with terrestrial earthquake activity as well ...
in this case, not necessarily when it is in a perfect 180-degree
opposition between the Earth and the Sun, but rather at the "hyperdimensional"
geometric angle of 115 degrees (5 degrees -- one "orb" -- from the
"perfect" 120-degree "trine angle" -- one of the standard aspects in
[P. 977:] Other, rather surprising,
factors have been shown to possibly play a role in earthquake
occurrence. For one, the position (115 degrees of meridian) of
Uranus was strongly correlated with earthquakes from 1904 to
1950. The scientist who conducted the study [R. Tomaschek in
1959] says that this cannot possibly be due to gravitational
This is quite obvious.

Could our terrestrial earthquake
activity be triggered (or enhanced) by energetic events far beyond
our Solar System? Apparently so ....
[According to the work of D. Sadeh
and M. Meidav in 1972, published in the prestigious journal
Nature,] earthquake occurrence in 1972 was enhanced in step with
the frequency of a pulsar (CP 1133). 529
Later these data were criticized. However, one cannot help but
wonder if the criticism was due to the unorthodox findings and
the theoretical lack of a mechanism. Could these findings be due
to action at a distance, or a system of interstellar or
intergalactic fields (see Chapter 7, and sections 9.6 and 10.4)?

Response Caused by Pulsar CP1133. Nature 240:136-38.
Next, we have some of Pasichnyk’s data
that gives an overview of the same topics that we have been
discussing herein, by returning to Gribbin and Plagemann’s original
compilation of some of the key research, "The Jupiter Effect":
[P. 977:] The length of day (LOD),
the period required for the Earth to complete its rotation, has
varied throughout time. Like so many other geophysical
phenomena, solar activity has been correlated with changes in
the length of day.135,168,225,484
Different LOD occurred along with fluctuations in solar activity
in the periods 1780 to 1960, and 1900 to 1979.135,484…

to abruptly alter the Earth’s rotation.100
For example, [in the Science journal, J. Gribbin and J. Plagemann found in 1973 that] the great flares of 1959 and 1972
brought abrupt changes in the LOD [length of day for the Earth’s
rotation]. 231 Both long-term and
short-term changes in solar activity alter the Earth’s rotation.

I find it interesting that these same
solar changes, correlated with changes in the length of day and with
earthquake activity, also appear to be at least partially
responsible for increased weather activity, specifically the dreaded
El Niño and La Niña effects (above):
[p. 979:] Confirmation of the
effect’s non-gravitational nature is evident in numerous
observations. One is that a correlation exists between the LOD,
weather and solar activity. Alterations in the Earth’s rotation,
variations in the upper atmosphere’s density, and geomagnetic
storms fluctuate with solar activity.168
Variations in the upper atmosphere’s density and geomagnetic
storms would be expected from the ionization produced by
particle flow [emphasis added].
A few scientists have claimed that
the changes in rotation are due to weather phenomena acting on
the Earth’s surface (i.e., wind shear).183,484,638
Meanwhile, the rotation slowed just prior to one of the greatest
weather disturbances in some forty years, the strongest El Niño
on record. A strong peak in the increase of LOD preceded an
unusually intense El Niño in 1982-83, not the other way around.
97 A similar rotational change also
preceded the El Niño of 1997-98.

Now we learn that the Earth’s magnetic
field shows these solar-induced changes in the Earth’s rotation --
before they emerge, measurably, as an actual "jerk" or
[p. 985:] As with other observations
there are indications of a solar linkage in jerks [in the
Earth’s magnetic field]. [According to a 1965 study by T. Yukutake,] The jerks, such as in 1913 and 1969, are correlated
with the 11-year solar cycle. 680
The Sun’s helical motion around the barycenter, or center of
mass, reached a minimum in 1913, and the greatest solar
interaction took place around the equinoxes.399,525,571,608,609
Universal time (LOD) variations are associated with the Earth’s
tilt on its axis, displaying the largest variations around the
equinoxes. 525 In addition,

published in mainstream geophysical journals,] shifts in the

So there you have it (to quote a certain, well-known, late-night
radio personality ...).
If you’re still with us, after all this time and information, then
you’re probably starting to see that there’s a lot more to
earthquakes and tsunamis than you may have noticed. "V" and his
colleagues have already developed a software program that goes a
long way towards successfully predicting specific earthquakes a
month or more in advance, and the more of these variables that can
be included (and the data continually updated on a timely basis,)
the better we can prepare.
Furthermore, the case for the Physics behind these disparate
phenomena is about to become far more intriguing -- when we publish
