There are many factors one can analyze to predict the future. Here I examine the more unique and unusual ones.



Modified Kondratiev Wave

A modification to the Kondratiev Wave predicts recessions, booms, and wars for America. This is not my invention; all credit goes to an old friend for discovering it.

The cycle is a summation of 52, 26, 13, and 6.5 year sine waves properly inverted, aligned, and scaled in the range of 0% to 100%. At 0% is the bottom of a depression of recession, and 100% is the top of a boom.


Anything above 80% indicates a heightened probability of war. This graph indicates probabilities.

Here is the graph for nearby years:


The graph accurately traced the 2008 economic crash, the supposed “green shoots” recovery of 2009-2010, and the second downward slide of 2011.


The graph ramps up in 2012 and crosses the 80% mark in Fall 2012, when war becomes a real possibility. The last time this happened, the Iraq war under George W. Bush was set into motion.



Large Hadron Collider and HAARP

On March 30th, 2010, the Large Hadron Collider went into regular operation, after many months of delays, repairs, and intermittent tests.


This machine is so large and expensive that not even military/corporate black ops in their underground bases have presumably built such a thing. Meaning, the LHC itself would need to be timeshared for black project purposes.

And with it now being operational, now is when such strange and likely nefarious experiments may begin. If this involves dimensional/temporal experimentation, then that points once more to the level of novelty in world events increasing.


Thus there ought to be a correlation between milestones in the LHC program and whatever effects upon the world/timeline such black projects might aim to produce.

The Collider, the Particle and a Theory About Fate
NY Times

October 12, 2009


More than a year after an explosion of sparks, soot and frigid helium shut it down, the world’s biggest and most expensive physics experiment, known as the Large Hadron Collider, is poised to start up again. […]

A pair of otherwise distinguished physicists have suggested that the hypothesized Higgs boson, which physicists hope to produce with the collider, might be so abhorrent to nature that its creation would ripple backward through time and stop the collider before it could make one, like a time traveler who goes back in time to kill his grandfather.

Holger Bech Nielsen, of the Niels Bohr Institute in Copenhagen, and Masao Ninomiya of the Yukawa Institute for Theoretical Physics in Kyoto, Japan, put this idea forward in a series of papers with titles like “Test of Effect From Future in Large Hadron Collider: a Proposal” and “Search for Future Influence From LHC,” posted on the physics Web site in the last year and a half.

According to the so-called Standard Model that rules almost all physics, the Higgs is responsible for imbuing other elementary particles with mass.

“It must be our prediction that all Higgs producing machines shall have bad luck,” Dr. Nielsen said in an e-mail message.

In an unpublished essay, Dr. Nielson said of the theory,

“Well, one could even almost say that we have a model for God.” It is their guess, he went on, “that He rather hates Higgs particles, and attempts to avoid them.”

This malign influence from the future, they argue, could explain why the United States Superconducting Supercollider, also designed to find the Higgs, was canceled in 1993 after billions of dollars had already been spent, an event so unlikely that Dr. Nielsen calls it an “anti-miracle.” […]

There’s nothing impossible about what these physicists are suggesting.


They’re just extending mathematics outside the matchbox paradigm of orthodox science. What they’re really saying is that the LHC can induce synchronicities. It’s quantum physics applied on the macro scale, and involving future-past feedback, which, by the way, the equations of quantum physics don’t disallow.

As for HAARP, the waterfall chart shows HAARP has been active 24/7 since February 23, 2011.


According to Wikipedia, on April 13, 2011,

“LHC becomes the world’s highest-luminosity hadron accelerator […] beating the Tevatron’s previous record.”

I’ve been watching the HAARP charts since 2005 and they always consisted of limited test runs, many of which coincided with hurricane and earthquake production.


With HAARP (and presumably the related facilities) now operating all hours of the day, the testing phase is over, and whatever HAARP was built for is now being realized.

Based on what I know about scalar physics, HAARP and similar ionospheric heating facilities can produce scalar, longitudinal, gravitational, temporal waves capable of affecting consciousness, etheric energy, the stability of our dimension, and the trajectory of our timeline.


It’s a much more advanced version of the Philadelphia Experiment.

I suspect shadow government forces, who are in league with negative alien factions, are attempting to initiate artificial end-times events related to solar, volcanic, seismic, and climate activities in order to precipitate a timeline of their choosing. They may also be artificially suppressing mass consciousness and/or locking out higher dimensional benevolent influences that are now pounding at the gate, so to speak.


I base this on the capabilities of HAARP-type technology and the known intentions of negative alien factions.



Polarization Phenomenon

I’ve said it for years that as we approach “the end,” dark will get darker and bright will get brighter.


This will appear at the mass scale, national scale, local scale, and even family and psychological scale. There will be increasing division as crops and weeds recognize each other and band together with their own kind. It’s a natural sign of the times, a kind of sifting bridge, as catalysts force us to choose instead of sitting on the fence.


It’s happening now and will accelerate.



Foreshadowing in Movie Titles

This is a completely speculative idea, and I pursue it for fun just to see what comes of it.


The idea is that the titles of box office releases synchromystically foreshadow events that occur 10-10.5 years later. Sort of like dream symbols and puns that end up being precognitive.

As an example, consider 2001 with the WTC attacks, government conspiracy, doctoring of evidence, and pretext for the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions.


Here are some titles from the top 100 movies of 1991, which synchronystically reflect the events of 2001:

  • Double Impact (twin towers impacted by two planes)

  • New Jack City (play on New York City)

  • City Slickers (another city reference, slick=slippery, cunning)

  • Sleeping with the Enemy (reference to inside job)

  • Necessary Roughness (problem, reaction, solution – killing own citizens out of necessity to accomplish Machiavellian goals)

  • Toy Soldiers (toy soldiers are disposable fighters sent to die needless deaths, aka cannon fodder, like the soldiers sent to Afghanistan and Iraq on false pretenses)

  • Silence of the Lambs (killing of the innocent)

  • Defending Your Life (immediate reaction post 9-11, the paranoia of being attacked by foreigners, and the blind patriotism that led to support of the Afghanistan and Iraq invasions to “defend our lives”)

  • Dead Again (death reference)

  • Dying Young (another death reference, either to innocent victims of 9/11 or young enlisted soldiers sent to their deaths)

  • Out for Justice (post-9/11 anti-Arab bloodlust)

  • Hook (while especially tenuous, may refer to 9/11 as the “hook” of a “hook, line, and sinker” swallowing of a false story)

  • Doc Hollywood ( Doc = doctored, Hollywood = special FX and fakery; relates to doctoring of evidence and use of diversion and special effects to create the official cover story)

  • JFK (term indicating conspiracy, specifically government conspiracy)

  • Hot Shots (Hot implies fire and explosions, shots implies missiles or aimed impacts)

  • The Rocketeer (Flight 93 was shot down by rockets/missiles, which even Donald Rumsfeld slipped up and admitted, and the Pentagon impact is claimed by some researchers to have been a missile or drone painted to look like a commercial airplane)

  • Naked Gun 2 1/2 (another reference to shooting; additionally, the Twin Towers were not the only ones to fall, the smaller WTC 7 building fell as well under suspicious circumstances)

  • Backdraft (term relates to a sudden deadly burst of fire, and fire has been the central issue regarding why the Twin Towers fell; whether heat was high enough to melt steel, and if not, then the towers were intentionally demolished)


As you can see, these form a “theme cluster” among the 100 top grossing movies of 1991, and the theme cluster seems to relate to 9/11 a decade later.


If the interpretations seem like stretches, it’s because these are treated as dream symbols, which likewise require some creative interpretation.

Well, if it worked for 2001, what about other years? I looked at the titles of the Top 100 grossing films from 1999-2005 to see if they clustered into identifiable trends. They did. Not only did each year have unique themes, not only did they logically segue from one year to the next, but each cluster causally supported another cluster; for instance, one theme of cataclysm supporting another theme of migration.

The only problem was having the correct context. For instance, 2001 titles seemed to indicate a big event in 2011 regarding the Royal Family and Princess Diana.


I figured maybe it was a scandal involving Princess Diana, maybe the conspiracy of her assassination would be blown wide open. But turns out it was the royal wedding between William and Kate. There are many other cases of similar rhyming or resonance between theme clusters and the actual event.

Previous predictions:

  • 2000 / 2010: Lots of snow / Obama kicks into action and is criticized for not being man enough / Important Mars discovery / huge hurricane hits / something inside a mountain or underground building up / populist resistance movement and bold actions on their part / early start of domestic terrorism / congested traffic or high gas prices interfering with travel.

    [Update October 2010: The underground theme stems from titles like What Lies Beneath, U-571, Vertical Limit, Pitch Black for example. Closest mirroring in reality is the archetype of problems underground, namely mine accidents and the Gulf Oil disaster. Time will tell whether the other theme clusters make for accurate predictions]


  • 2001 / 2011: domestic terrorism event, populist resistance inspired, foments revenge mindset in rest of population / economic depression / police state becomes real problem / strong heat and wind in America during the summer / military operation involving captives / Mexico becomes an issue / fishing and shipping industry devastated / scandal over Princess Diana / archeological discovery related to the Holy Grail or Ark of the Covenant / people shaken up by turn of events / end times religious fervor involving New Jerusalem themes / nordic human-like aliens gain publicity, portrayed as our brothers and sisters, mankind criticized for being animals, some Mars or time travel connection / major meteor or comet event.

The one big event that 2001 titles pertained to, but which did not manifest, was the theme of nordic alien “space brothers” making an appearance, or some major news event pertaining to the whole “aliens are our friends and humans are irresponsible” theme.


Then again, I noticed a shift in the alien agenda in mid 2009 away from the lovey-dovey alien paradigm, and toward the more shifty-eyed “aliens are out to get us” paradigm, which sets the stage for a false flag alien attack. I don’t think that shift was originally part of the plan, but was a shift in approach due to new developments.

So for 2012, what do the theme clusters from 2002 predict?


I’ll post the clusters themselves:

Sunshine State
Paid in Full
Orange County

Savage Messiah
The Emperor’s New Clothes
The Scorpion King
The Master of Disguise
Big Fat Liar
Super Troopers
Attack of the Clones
The Two Towers

Monsoon Wedding
Collateral Damage
Blue Crush
City by the Sea
The Earth Will Swallow You
The Weight of Water
The Rules of Attraction
40 Days and 40 Nights
Big Trouble

The Grey Zone
Green Dragon
Red Dragon
Star Trek: Nemesis
Reign of Fire
Friday After Next
Life or Something Like It
Two Weeks Notice
Panic Room
Changing Lanes
8 Mile
Moonlight Mile
The Sum of All Fears
Die Another Day
Day after Tomorrow
Polar Express
Ice Age

The Time Machine
What Time Is It There?
Time Out
Time Changer
Extreme Ops
Formula 51
Das Experiment
The Ring
Station Nord
Men in Black II
The Transporter

Time of Favor
Happy Times
Spirited Away
Manna from Heaven
Far From Heaven
Return to Never Land
Treasure Planet

Can you spot the themes?

  • Something financial involving Florida or California.

  • Rise of Antichrist / Police State conditions.

  • Water disaster, maybe a major city wiped out by tsunami and/or floods.

  • Interplanetary object disturbing Earth’s climate and orbit. Signs in the skies.

  • Time travel experiments.

  • Rapture or timeline split.

Again, this is just fun speculation.


My interpretations aren’t absolute, and I’m sure others can interpret these clusters more accurately. Nonetheless, predicting the future based on movie titles sounds nuts, but it seems to work to some extent.


These themes reflect more what is prevalent in mass consciousness, than what actually materializes physically. For instance, 2001 titles also had a strong religious “end times hysteria” theme, but rather than the end of the world coming, it was the Harold Camping campaign.

I’m curious as to whether there will indeed be an interplanetary intruder this year. The 188 day earthquake cycle (below video) suggests as much, with the next earthquake window falling around Spring Equinox 2012.






One could also look ahead.


For 2005/2015 there were movies with the following titles suggesting forced migration/evacuation:

  • Red Eye (slang term for an inconveniently timed airplane flight, often stressful and hurried)

  • Flightplan (flight = fleeing suddenly, plan = organized procedure)

  • Kicking & Screaming (being forced to do something against one’s will, doing it reluctantly and with much stress as forced by circumstances)

  • Be Cool (relates to the stress idea, and the idea of being organized and cool-headed, which only makes sense if there is potential for losing one’s head due to urgent circumstances)

  • Hide and Seek (indicates being on the run, ducking for cover)

  • The Longest Yard (another reference to a long distance journey)

  • Coach Carter (pun on coach and cart, two names for the same primitive means of travel)

  • Walk the Line (traveling by foot, line is reminiscent of column, file, caravan, procession)

  • Hitch (traveling by catching a ride, not necessarily knowing how one will get to the final destination)

  • Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy (another hitch/travel reference)

  • March of the Penguins (mass migration on foot, and if you’ve seen the movie, it’s about penguins facing a grueling trek under adverse conditions).


Solar Disasters

I wrote about this in my previous Research Note. The possibility of a solar-induced catastrophe has really been saturating the media lately.

The movie Knowing portrayed it, as did Emmerich’s 2012. Mainstream news and magazine articles cover it as well. See for instance an article from New Scientist Magazine called Space Storm Alert: 90 Seconds from Catastrophe.

Seasoned astrometeorologists like Theo at the Alamac Forum predict Solar Cycle 24 will be an extended cycle lasting into 2016.

From my previous Research Note:

During the downward slope, solar flares and sunspots grow less frequent, but with potentially stronger X-class flares even though they are fewer and farther between.


During the last cycle, the downward slope was well underway by 2003 when some whopper sunspots and flares appeared. This corresponds to mid 2012 to mid 2013 in the upcoming cycle [unless the cycle is extended, then 2013 to 2016 is the target window].

We could see a major CME event around this time, which if strong enough could knock down the electric grid and make things all the more interesting. Visit to read a government-funded study on how society would be affected.

It’s worth noting that military black projects ought to have enough computing power to accurately predict (but not reveal to the public) when the next major CME event will hit, when electric and communications infrastructure will go down.


This would allow them to prepare far in advance and capitalize on that knowledge.


Maybe they would need widespread blackouts to conduct questionable operations that could not be pulled off under the light of media and internet awareness.


Timing of the next solar peak should indicate when such a scenario is likely to manifest.

From another note titled Coherence Indicators:

Solar flares appear to have an impact upon the earth grid and thus upon the stability between realms.


Strong solar flares impact the earth’s magnetosphere and give a shock to the earth grid, increasing the number and magnitude of portals and thereby assisting dimensional engineering attempts.


Negative hyperdimensional forces have an easier time changing things when realm conditions are unstable, such as during certain astrological alignments and when the earth’s magnetic field is buffeted. Solar flares, being plasma shockwaves, also carry with them a longitudinal magnetic vector potential wave, essentially a gravitational potential wave, which I think is the primary instigator of realm fluctuations.



when solar activity is high, things tend to get whacky.

Apparently it has to do with alignments of the planets and their magnetic fields and how it impacts the sun.


Other natural wild-card events could arise.


Meteorite storms have wreaked havoc in the past:

These cannot be easily predicted in advance, but they remain open as possibilities.

If nothing else, increased solar activity will lead to worsening weather, volcanic and earthquake activity, and power outages. Natural disasters, more than anything, are going to bankrupt governments and mortally wound the global economy through death by a thousand cuts.


It’s underway.



Personally, I foresee aliens showing up anywhere from early 2013 to late 2017 based on current trends/conditions and various data points.


For them to appear and have the proper leverage, we must first go through global economic collapse and WWIII. As anyone following the news and research knows, those two things are nipping at our toes right now.

It’s also worth noting the Malachi Prophecy predicting the succession of popes, with the last two coming to power during the end of days. The current pope, Darth Ratzinger, is the third from last. The prophecy says he would be short lived. Hence we will see the fulfillment of Malachi’s Prophecy in the next few years.


The prophecy ends with:

In the final persecution of the Holy Roman Church there will reign Peter the Roman, who will feed his flock amid many tribulations, after which the seven-hilled city will be destroyed and the dreadful Judge will judge the people. The End.

Then there is the Fatima Prophecy, namely the Third Secret of Fatima. The Vatican has released a fake version of it that is self-congratulatory and superficial.


Here is one closer to the real thing:

Humanity has not developed as God desired. Mankind has been sacrilegious and has trampled underfoot the gifts of God.

No longer does order reign anywhere. Even in the highest places Satan reigns and directs the course of events. Satan will succeed in infiltrating into the highest positions in the Church.


Satan will succeed in sowing confusion in the minds of scientists who will design weapons that can destroy great portions of mankind in a few minutes. Satan will gain hold of heads of nations and will cause these destructive weapons to be mass-produced.

If mankind will not oppose these evils, I will be obliged to let fall My Son’s arm. If the chief rulers of the world and of the Church will not actively oppose these evils, I will ask God My Father to visit His Justice upon mankind.


Then will God punish mankind even more severely and harshly than He did at the time of the great Deluge. The great and powerful will perish along with the lowly and weak.

A time of very severe trial is also coming for the Church. Cardinals will oppose Cardinals and Bishops will oppose Bishops. Satan will enter into their very midst. In Rome also, there will occur great changes. What is rotten will fall, and what falls must not be retained. The Church will be obscured, and all the world will be thrown into great confusion…

The only thing I see that could cause such cataclysmic upset to the Church would be aliens revealing themselves and overturning the whole foundation of religion.


Sides would be chosen, corruption and deception (on the human level) revealed, and things would get very topsy turvy.

The Third Secret continues:

Fire and smoke will fall from heaven, and the waters of the ocean will turn to steam, throwing their foam to the very sky. Whatever is standing will be overturned. Millions of people will die. Those surviving will envy the dead. Distress, misery and desolation will be found the world over.

The time is drawing near, and the abyss is ever deepening. There will be no escape: the good will die with the wicked, the great with the lowly, the princes of the Church with the faithful, the rulers of the nations with their people.


Death will reign everywhere, raised to triumph by erring men, the helpers of Satan who will be the masters of the earth. These evils will come at a time when no one expects it: nevertheless it must come as punishment and revenge in accordance with God’s plan.

The age of ages is coming, the end of all ends if mankind will not repent and be converted, and if this conversion does not come from rulers of the world and of the Church. Woe and greater woe to mankind if conversion does not occur.


This matches up nicely with the Mother Shipton’s prophecies.

For those who live the century through
in fear and trembling this shall do.
Flee to the mountains and the dens
to bog and forest and wild fens.

For storms will rage and oceans roar
when Gabriel stands on sea and shore,
and as he blows his wondrous horn
old worlds die and new be born.

A fiery dragon will cross the sky
six times before the earth shall die.
Mankind will tremble and frightened be
for the six heralds in this prophecy.

(it gets worse...)

Question is how much of what was seen in these prophecies is still applicable, and if valid, then is it valid for everyone? Are we all chain-ganged to the same timeline, or is there an option for some of us to branch off onto an alternate probable future where these things don’t take place?


Time will tell...



Appendix - Preparations

Because someone will inevitably ask me for some tips on survival, I’ll go ahead and cover those.


These are mainly good for weather disasters and temporary interruptions to utilities and the food supply. For bigger things, you would need fate, destiny, and divine intervention on your side.

Basic needs in order of urgency:

  • water

  • food

  • medicine

  • energy/lighting

  • shelter/clothing

  • defense

  • tools

Some suggestions on the first four:


portable water filter (First Need XL, Katadyn Pocket), cases of bottled water, water purification tablets, collapsible water bags. If there is only one item to get, it is a high quality portable water filter. I cannot stress this enough.


Because water is the first and most important thing to go after any disaster, and portable filters are so compact yet good for hundreds to thousands of gallons.



dried beans/rice/potatoes/oatmeal/pasta, canned or jarred fruits and vegetables, canned or pouched meats, salt, pasta and jarred pasta sauce, olive and sunflower oil, and vitamins (especially Vitamin C, as it’s hard to get from canned/jarred foods, and Vitamin D since if you’re hiding by day and traveling by night you won’t get any), military meal packs.


For cooking, either a Sterno or Esbit folding stove and fuel, a small Woodgas Camp Stove, or a simple alcohol stove and a couple gallons of S-L-X denatured alcohol.



extra prescription items, toiletries and personal hygiene essentials, and First Aid kit (Total Resources International, REI kit or Adventure Medical).

Or make your own kit:

anti-bacterial ointment (most important), anti-fungal ointment, cortisone cream, anti-diarrheal, laxative, SAM splints for sprains and breaks, assorted band-aids, buffered aspirin, vaseline, rubbing alcohol, iodine liquid, medical tape, gauze rolls, elastic bandage wrap, wound dressing pads, butterfly sutures, superglue for cuts, burn gel or burn pad, moleskin for blisters, bandage scissors, tweezers, latex-free gloves, plastic syringe for wound washing, Bic lighter, sturdy drinking straws, Swiss Army Classic, optionally some #15 scalpels and 4.5 inch straight iris scissors for tissue work, non-alcohol thermometer, cayenne powder and/or Celox for wound blood clotting.

Additional anti-microbials: oregano oil and colloidal silver.



packs of batteries, or rechargeable Sanyo Eneloop batteries and solar charger, LED headlamp (very important - if you only get one type of lighting, make it an LED headlamp), good LED flashlight (can light up a whole room and run for 8 to 72 hours), 12V DC to 120V AC inverter, solar charge controller, 20W minimum solar panel, 18-50 AH marine battery.

The simplest and cheapest anyone can do, is get couple cases of bottled water (not the opaque gallon jugs since they end up leaking), a first aid kit, an LED headlamp with some extra batteries, and some canned and ready-to-eat (granola bars, cereal boxes, peanut butter and crackers) foods. That’s good enough for a week.

If you’re worried about self-defense, the most legal option (check your local laws) is pepper spray and a baseball bat; anything beyond that is up to you. You can get all these things in one day, put it away in your closet, and go on with your life. Having spare cash on hand is recommended: enough for food, gas, and motel covering 2-3 days of travel.

Doesn’t take much time or effort to get the basics. Occasionally check the clearance section at stores; good deals on useful items appear there sometimes.


And if something jumps out at you, is on sale, and seems like a good idea, maybe that’s a hint. Years ago I had an intuitive nudge, and a synchronistic opportunity, to get some nice Walkie-Talkies with a 5-mile range.


Later they became absolutely essential when my girlfriend and I evacuated Florida in separate cars during the 2004 hurricanes. Had I ignored my intuition and the opportunity, who knows what would have happened.

As far as survivalism goes, here are some things to keep in mind:

  1. You can only prepare for a limited set of scenarios. A point comes in your attempt to prepare for everything, where you’ve just thrown away your life, your destiny, your mission if you have one, all for the sake of surviving.


    Then you would be surviving for the sake of existing, not for the sake of living. Life would be meaningless and you just defeated your very purpose for coming here.


    Therefore, no amount of preparation warrants throwing your life away and heading into the hills, shutting yourself off from the world until doomsday comes. All preparations should be done in parallel with your regular life and not infringe upon it.


    If your main life is Plan A (nothing happens) then keep that open while you simultaneously have Plan B (S.H.T.F.).


  2. Do some basic physical preparations without becoming obsessed, preoccupied, or emotionally invested in it.


    If you get some survival item, know how to use it and put it away until time for maintenance, practice, and use. Try not to fondle it like you have some kind of survivalism fetish, don’t be turning over post-apocalyptic fantasies in your mind, gloating over your advantage over the other poor suckers who are asleep and unprepared.


    Reason being that holding onto an extreme survivalism mentality, beyond what’s needed to actually do it, is highly detrimental to your spiritual balance. Have the knowledge and supplies, but be very cautious of aligning your heart and thought-train completely and exclusively with the mere idea of physical survivalism.


    Making it your life goal will kill your soul, and you need your soul and a spiritual connection to gain the synchronistic and intuitive protection needed to keep you safe in all scenarios, not just the ones you can physically prepare for.


  3. To an extent, spiritual balance, good intuition (honed through past trial and error), and sharp awareness (observe and think several steps ahead) will get you farther than any physical survival dwelling or supplies.


    Why? Because then you can respond flexibly to whatever comes, as it comes.


    By spiritual balance I mean keeping a leash on your ego, your jealousies, contempt and hatred, desperate materialism, greed, and other base impulses… and instead, striving for equanimity, gratitude to the Creator, devotion to truth and beauty and fairness, and consideration for others.


    Then you acquire divine blessing that increases the luck factor in your life. In the midst of calamity you can get an intuitive or synchronistic helping hand.

Of course, spiritual versus physical preparation are not mutually exclusive; just avoid physical obsession that infringes on spiritual balance; that’s the most important thing I can say.


Same goes for looking toward the future and getting apprehensive. Don’t lose hope or optimism, as you need these to carve out a pathway to heaven through times of hell.
