ORIONID METEORS: Earth is entering a stream of dusty debris from Halley's Comet, the source of the annual Orionid meteor shower. The display, feeble now but intensifying, is expected to peak on Oct. 21st. If the Orionids of 2007 are anything like 2006, sky watchers can expect to see dozens of bright meteors during the dark hours before dawn next Sunday. Mark your calendar!
Bush warns of World War III if Iran goes nuclear
Oct 17 11:45 AM US/Eastern
US President George W. Bush said Wednesday that he had warned world leaders they must prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons "if you're interested in avoiding World War III." "We've got a leader in Iran who has announced that he wants to destroy Israel," Bush said at a White House press conference after Russia cautioned against military action against Tehran's supect atomic program. "So I've told people that, if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon," said Bush.

Israel Warns World War III May be Biblical War of Gog and Magog
by Ezra HaLevi
(IsraelNN.com) US President George W. Bush said a nuclear Iran would mean World War III. Israeli newscasts featured Gog & Magog maps of the likely alignment of nations in that potential conflict. Channel 2 and Channel 10 TV showed the world map, sketching the basic alignment of the two opposing axes in a coming world war, in a manner evoking associations of the Gog and Magog prophecy for many viewers. The prophecy of Gog and Magog refers to a great world war centered on the Holy Land and Jerusalem and first appears in the book of Yechezkel (Ezekiel). On one side were Israel, the United States, Britain, France and Germany. On the other were Iran, Russia, China, Syria and North Korea.
US President Bush said Wednesday during a press conference that Iran attaining nuclear weapons raises the risk of "World War III." "If Iran had a nuclear weapon, it'd be a dangerous threat to world peace," Bush said. "So I told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested [in preventing a nuclear Iran] I take the threat of Iran with a nuclear weapon very seriously.
Russian President Vladimir Putin visited Iran Tuesday and slammed the USs refusal to rule out the use of force against Irans nuclear project. "Not only should we reject the use of force, but also the mention of force as a possibility," he said. Russia has blocked tougher UN sanctions in the UN Security Council, where it has veto power. The Russian president asserts that there is no evidence Iran is pursuing nuclear weapons rather than a peaceful nuclear power program.
Israels Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni called for a new Security Council resolution against Iran at a press conference following her meeting with US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice Wednesday. "I do believe there is a need for another Security Council resolution, she told reporters. In the past, the need to get everybody on board - including Russia and China - led to some compromises on the nature of the sanctions. I hope this will not be the case this time."
Prime Minister Ehud Olmert announced Wednesday a sudden trip to Moscow Thursday morning, where he will meet with Putin about Iran. Other topics of discussion will reportedly be Russias continued supply of weapons to Syria, which have then made their way into the hands of various terrorist groups based there as well.
Is mysterious image the late pope?
THE ASSOCIATED PRESS
Published Friday October 19th, 2007
WARSAW, Poland - A photo taken of a bonfire by a young Polish construction worker is creating a stir for the resemblance of the flames to a silhouette of Poland's beloved son, Pope John Paul II. The picture has been featured in newspapers across Poland and other countries, including Germany and Italy.
Grzegorz Lukasik, 26, snapped the shot April 2 at a mountainside ceremony marking the second anniversary of the pope's death. During John Paul II's nearly 27-year pontificate, villagers would light a fire on the Matyska mountain, in southern Poland, as a greeting to him when he would visit the area.
It was not until he was heading back to his car and was flipping through his digital images that Lukasik saw the photo of the flames resembling a silhouette of the pope bending in a gesture of blessing -- taken at 21:37, according to the time stamp on the image, the exact time John Paul II died in 2005.
It was not known if anyone has evaluated whether the photo might have been altered. Regardless, it will not be a factor in determining whether enough miracles have occurred to warrant John Paul's beatification, said Polish Msgr. Slawomir Oder, who is spearheading the cause to make the late pope a saint.

Cheney: US Will Not Let Iran Go Nuclear
By MATTHEW BARAKAT October 21, 2007
LEESBURG, Va. (AP) The United States and other nations will not allow Iran to obtain a nuclear weapon, Vice President Dick Cheney said Sunday. "Our country, and the entire international community, cannot stand by as a terror-supporting state fulfills its grandest ambitions," Cheney said in a speech to the Washington Institute for Near East Studies. He said Iran's efforts to pursue technology that would allow them to build a nuclear weapon are obvious and that "the regime continues to practice delay and deceit in an obvious effort to buy time."
If Iran continues on its current course, Cheney said the U.S. and other nations are prepared to take action. The vice president made no specific reference to military action. "We will not allow Iran to have a nuclear weapon," he said. Cheney's words seemed to only escalate the U.S. rhetoric against Iran over the past several days, including President Bush's warning that a nuclear Iran could lead to "World War III."
Cheney said the ultimate goal of the Iranian leadership is to establish itself as the hegemonic force in the Middle East and undermine the Shiite community in Iraq as a rival for influence in the Muslim world. Iran's government seeks "to keep Iraq in a state of weakness to ensure Baghdad does not pose a threat to Tehran," Cheney said. While he was critical of that government and President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad, he offered praise and words of solidarity to the Iranian people. Iran "is a place of unlimited potential ... and it has the right to be free of tyranny," Cheney said. Cheney accused of Iran of having a direct role in the deaths of U.S. soldiers in Iraq and said the government has "solidified its grip on the country" since coming to power in 1979.
The U.S. and some allies accuse Iran of secretly trying to develop nuclear weapons and have demanded it halt uranium enrichment, an important step in the production of atomic weapons. Oil-rich Iran says its program is for peaceful purposes including generating electricity.
At a news conference Wednesday, Bush suggested that if Iran obtained nuclear weapons, it could lead to a new world war. "I've told people that if you're interested in avoiding World War III, it seems like you ought to be interested in preventing them (Iran) from having the knowledge necessary to make a nuclear weapon," Bush said. Bush's spokeswoman later said the president was making not making any war plans but rather "a rhetorical point."
Also, on Thursday, the top officer in the U.S. military said the U.S. has the resources to attack Iran if needed despite the strains of wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Navy Adm. Michael Mullen, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said striking Iran is a last resort, and the focus now on diplomacy to stem Iran's nuclear ambitions, but "there is more than enough reserve to respond" militarily if need be. (See post #654.)
The Bush administration's intentions toward Iran have been the subject of debate in Congress. Last month the Senate approved a resolution urging the State Department to label Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps a terrorist organization. Sen. Jim Webb, D-Va., said he feared the measure could be interpreted as authorizing a military strike in Iran, calling it Cheney's "fondest pipe dream."
Dante's Mystic Number
One of the most influential writers of the thirteenth century was the Italian philosopher and mystic Dante. Dante's principal work was a mystic poem known as The Divine Comedy.
The Divine Comedy incorporates an unsolved puzzle in numerology. Dante prophesied that the Apocalypse would be preceded by a messenger represented by the number 515. Scholars are agreed that the problem is related to the number 666, the number of the Beast of the Apocalypse in the Book of Revelation. No solution to these puzzles has yet been found.
Gematria value of 'The Time Appointed' = 515

250,000 flee raging wildfires around San Diego
SAN DIEGO, California (CNN) -- A quarter-million people fled their homes amid wildfires that had burned 100,000 acres around San Diego County, officials said Monday. "The situation continues to deteriorate," fire chief Bill Metcalf said at 10 a.m. Pacific time, with numerous structures lost across the county."I think there's a very good possibility it will reach the coast before it's finished," Metcalf said of one of the fiercest blazes..
California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger declared a state of emergency in seven counties. "The wind is our number one enemy right now," he told a late morning news conference.
"The situation has gotten dramatically worse overnight ... worse than many of us could have imagined just a few short hours ago," Metcalf said earlier Monday. A smaller fire that merged with the Witch Fire -- one of the biggest in the region -- entered the San Diego city limits Monday, said Mike Mohler with the California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection. San Diego County Sheriff Bill Kolender said at a news conference the Witch Fire "will probably be the worst fire this county has ever seen -- worse than the Cedar Fire."
This morning when I turned on the CNN news, the 'breaking news' story was about the wild fires in California, and when I turned on the computer, this picture on earthfiles.com caught my attention. It was of a church that was being completely destroyed by the fire (symbolic). And the sign beside it especially caught my eye: REVELATION. (The last book of the Bible which is about the End Times.)
Afer lunch, while I was updating this chapter with my previous post #717 about Dante, I turned on the tv again and saw "California Inferno" which I connected to "Dante's Inferno" which I happened to be writing about at that exact time. I ran downstairs to grab my camera to see if I could get a picture of the tv screen, thinking it would probably be gone by the time I got there. It wasn't and I got a picture:
Just as I snapped the picture, the tv screen changed. I think I was still
looking through the view finder when 11:11 appeared before
my eyes. That completely caught me off guard as it was mid-afternoon
here and I was just not expecting to see 11:11, but I managed to get
a picture of it.
Surely the timing of all this was no "coincidence," and it is further confirmation that 11:11 is connected to these "Revelation"; "Planet In Peril" events.
More South Bay evacuations in front of Harris Fire
6:08 a.m. October 23, 2007
POTRERO More fire-related evacuations were under way in the South Bay Tuesday, prompted by a wind-driven, 22,000-acre wildfire that killed a Tecate man and injured 21 others since it began in rural southeastern San Diego County on Sunday.
The so-called Harris fire crested Mount San Miguel overnight and was burning on its west side, headed toward Bonita, Capt. Don Camp of the California Department of Forestry, also known as Cal Fire. The fire was threatening homes in Lyons Valley, Jamul, Spring Valley, the Skyline Truck Trail and Barona, he said. Fire officials ordered evacuations near Point Parkway on the east side of Jamacha Boulevard, and reverse 911 calls were made to about 1,500 residents in North Jamul and Indian Springs. Evacuees were sent to Qualcomm Stadium. Other evacuation centers are full. The fire has heads burning in Honey Springs, Deerhorn Valley and Aqua Tibia and is continuing to move west, according to county officials.
The fire, the only deadly fire among about 10 raging across Southern California, began about 9:30 a.m. Sunday near Harris Ranch and Potrero Valley roads. It was about 5 percent contained, or surrounded, after burning about 22,000 acres, according to Cal Fire.
Fires force more than 500,000 from California homes
(October 23, 2007 4:30 pm ADT)
SAN DIEGO, California (CNN) -- More than a half million people had been ordered from San Diego County homes Tuesday as wildfires rage from the Mexican border to north of Los Angeles.
Across Southern California, more than 1,300 homes had been reduced to ashes, officials said Tuesday. Fears grew north of Los Angeles that the winds may fan three wildfires into one monster blaze, with too little resources available to fight it. Those fires threaten more than 56,000 homes.
In San Diego County, at least 513,000 residents had been ordered to find refuge in shelters, schools and stadiums as fires pushed into new areas Tuesday. New evacuation orders were added frequently to the San Diego Office of Emergency Services Web site.
"It will not end ... until it reaches the ocean or the winds turn around," San Diego Fire Battalion Chief Bruce Cartelli said.
In Part 4 post #188, written December 17, 2004 (just 1 week before the
catastophic Indonesian tsunami), I discovered that December 21, 2012 subtract
66666 hours came to May 15, 2005. I considered this an amazing find and an
important connection between my 515 and 66666. It was also 2777 days, and
I believed the 777 connection was also very significant. I believed this
pointed to May 15, 2005 being an important date in the End Time timeline
of events. (Later, on April 5, 2005, in Part 5 post #195 a reader friend
provided an even more amazing 777 connection to this May 15, 2005 date -
It was 7 years 7 months 7 days before December 21, 2012!)
In that post written December 17, 2004, I not only calculated the date of
May 15, 2005 as a significant date, but a precise time on that day - 2:31
December 21, 2012 at 11:11 pm Giza Time / 9:11 pm UT - 66666.66666.... hours = May 15, 2005 at 2:31 am UT
On May 16, 2005 - the day after my May 15 date - Part 5 post #257
"The Sun/Son of God Speaks to Earth" PART
I, I discovered that a significant event had indeed occured the
previous day on not only my 515 date, but at the exact moment that I had
It was reported on spaceweather.com that a major coronal mass ejection (CME) had hit Earth. NOAA reported this as an "extreme event" measuring the highest on the scale level.
It hit Earth at 2:30 am UT. My calculation was 2:31 am UT.
On May 17, 2005, post #260 "The Sun/Son of God Speaks
to Earth" PART II, because of this major solar flare connection
that I discovered, I went back to another solar flare I had previously shown
as "a sign" to see if I could find a December 21, 2012 connection. I found
On November 4, 2003, the largest solar flare ever recorded occured. It originated from sunspot 486. spaceweather.com reported that it hit Earth on November 6, 2004 at approximately 1930 UT.
I discovered that this was exactly 3,333 days before December 21, 2012!
On November 20, 2006, Part 8 post #465/466, I reported that another major
solar flare had occurred.
This was 2,222 (actually 2,222.2222...) days before December 21, 2012 and the day of Earth impact was (probably) November 21, 2006 - exactly 2222 days before December 21, 2012!
Strong solar flare activity over the next few weeks made me think more about
this and I discovered something else. On December 19, 2006 in post #487
"The Sun/Son of God Speaks to Earth" PART
III, I found that between the November 4, 2003 and the May 13,
2005 solar flares (as well as between their times of Earth impact on November
6, 2003 and May 15, 2005) was exactly 555 days, and approximately 13,333
I knew this was a major find, and I should have known there was more to find, but at the time I was just excited by this new discovery so did not think to think there could be more...
Ok... back to Tuesday...
After I researched my Chapter 18 looking for 515-related posts and refreshing my memory with the above information, I thought, ok, there were 555 days or approximately 13,333 hours between these two major solar flares. What would happen if I continued this pattern into the future? Would it come anywhere near December 21, 2012?
There were 13,341 hours (555 days 21 (7+7+7) hours) between the two solar flares and 13,327 hours (555 days 7 hours) between their times of Earth impact. (Average 13,334.)
I tried several combinations and permutations and two came very close:
1) Starting with the November 4, 2003 7:50 pm UT solar flare and continuing to add 13,341 hours brought me to December 22, 2012 at 1:50 am. This is only 4 hours 39 minutes after my December 21, 2012 11:11 pm Giza time / 9:11 pm UT date/time!
|November 4, 2003||7:50 pm
Largest solar flare ever recorded.
|May 13, 2005||4:50 pm
Solar flare which hit earth on May 15 at exactly 66666.66666 hours
before December 21, 2012 at 11:11 pm Giza time.
|November 20, 2006||1:50 pm
I reported a solar flare this day too! See post #466.
(Time of Earth impact would probably have been the next day. See next chart.)
|May 29, 2008||10:50 am|
|December 6, 2009||7:50 am|
|June 15, 2011||4:50 am|
|December 22, 2012||1:50 am|
2) Starting with the November 6, 2003 7:30 pm UT time of Earth impact and continuing to add 13,333 hours brought me to December 22, 2012 at 1:30 am UT. This is only 4 hours 19 minutes after my December 21, 2012 11:11 pm Giza time / 9:11 pm UT date/time! (Since my previous calculations, especially with my 515 date, dealt with the date/times of Earth impact, I prefer this calculation/chart.)
Not only that, but look at how these dates connect to the number of days before December 21, 2012!
If this pattern rings true, then a major solar flare should occur around December 4, 2009 with the date of Earth impact being December 6, 2009. (If the above pattern rings true, the actual solar flare should occur December 6, 2009.)
|3333||November 6, 2003||7:30 pm|
|May 15, 2005||8:30 am|
|2222||November 21, 2006||9:30 pm|
|May 30, 2008||10:30 am|
|1111||December 6, 2009||11:30 pm|
|June 15, 2011||12:30 pm|
|0000||December 22, 2012||1:30 am|
And if either of the above patterns ring true for December 6, 2009, I believe this will provide incontrovertible proof that December 21, 2012 (at 11:11 pm Giza time / 9:11 UT) is the date that the countdown for humanity ends.
Harris is my maiden name. I can't tell you how many times I have seen this name, or some variation of Harris or Mullen, my married name, somehow connected with a news story (usually a tragedy)... I have not figured out why this is, and I have noticed it far too many times to just be "coincidence," but the conclusion I have reached is that it - and I - are somehow connected with "warning."
I turned on the computer to search for "HARRIS FIRE" to see if I had heard correctly, and sure enough, there it was. I quickly added that to my paper and then we left for the States. I wondered what experiences / information God had in store for me these next few days. I was not disappointed. Two major things that would not have happened if we had stayed home...
We arrived late and went out for supper arriving back at out hotel after 10:00 pm their time (Eastern). We turned on the tv and there was a program on which, since we do not get that channel at home, I would not have been able to watch:
The fact that this program was on was particulary amazing because of what I had just figured out earler that day.
"In my previous book I had found that the number 227 is linked to 117."
These numbers jumped out at me because I was born on the 227 day of the year and the first three digits of my Social Insurance Number are 117. I talk about the significance of these numbers in My King Arthur / Holy Grail Connections chapter.
I bought the book. It came to $17.80 and I had to smile when I noticed that one of the two dollar bills that I got back in change had a 777 in the serial number. I also noticed another amazing connection. A 12 - 21 connection to December 21, 2012. This bill is now my bookmark.
I have not yet had a chance to read this book, but yesterday (Thursday) while we were driving home, I started reading it outloud to my husband who actually is finally seeming to take a little interest in all of this. I know that I was meant to find this book, so now we shall see what I learn and what it leads to.
It was a beautiful drive home with the full moon - the largest full moon of the year - brightly shining ahead of us leading us safely home.
U.S. slaps new sanctions on Iran
October 25, 2007
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The United States imposed stiff sanctions against Iran on Thursday, targeting two Iranian military groups and a number of Iranian banks and people it accuses of backing nuclear proliferation and terror-related activities.
"What this means is that no U.S. citizen or private organization will be allowed to engage in financial transactions with these persons and entities," Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice said. "In addition, any assets that these designees have under U.S. jurisdiction will be immediately frozen." Rice and Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson made the announcement in a brief appearance before reporters on Thursday morning.
Rice accused Iran of "pursuing nuclear technologies that can lead to a nuclear weapon; building dangerous ballistic missiles; supporting Shia militants in Iraq and terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon and the Palestinian territories; and denying the existence of a fellow member of the United Nations, threatening to wipe Israel off the map." "Many of the Iranian regime's most destabilizing policies are carried out by two of its agencies: the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, or the IRGC, and the Quds force, an arm of the IRGC," she said. She said the sanctions were being imposed "because of the Revolutionary Guard's support for proliferation and the Quds force support for terrorism."
The United States also designated three Iranian state-owned banks for sanctions, two of them "for their involvement in proliferation activities" and the other "as a terrorist financier," Rice said. "Iran funnels hundreds of millions of dollars each year through the international financial system to terrorists," Paulson said. "Iran's banks aid this conduct using a range of deceptive financial practices intended to evade even the most stringent risk management controls." The Revolutionary Guard Corps, he said, "is so deeply entrenched in Iran's economy and commercial enterprises, it is increasingly likely that, if you are doing business with Iran, you are doing business" with the corps. "We call on responsible banks and companies around the world to terminate any business with Bank Melli, Bank Mellat, Bank Saderat, and all companies and entities" of the corps, Paulson said.
The move marks the first time the United States has attempted to punish another country's military through sanctions.
Previous sanctions imposed by the United States have been tied to Iran's nuclear program. The United States has been working with other world powers to halt what they believe is Iran's intent to develop a nuclear arsenal. Iran says it is pursuing nuclear power for peaceful reasons.
Mohamed ElBaradei, director-general of the United Nations' International Atomic Energy Agency, said last month that Iran's declared nuclear material has not been diverted from peaceful use and criticized U.S. rhetoric regarding Iran...

STRANGE COMET: Astronomers around the world agree, Comet 17P/Holmes is one of the strangest things ever to explode in the night sky. It's a comet, yet it looks like a planet with a golden core and a green atmosphere. Yesterday, Comet Holmes shocked sky watchers with a spectacular eruption, brightening almost a million-fold from 17th to 2.5th magnitude in a matter of hours. The comet is now visible to the naked eye--even from light polluted cities--high in the northern sky after sunset.
October 26, 2007
EXPLODING COMET: When we say Comet 17P/Holmes is "exploding," this is what we mean. The gaseous cloud surrounding the comet's core has more than doubled in radius during the past 24 hours. This follows an even more astonishing million-fold increase in brightness on Oct. 23th.
What is happening to this comet? It remains a mystery.
GIANT COMET: Comet 17P/Holmes has been relentlessly expanding since its explosion on Oct 23rd and now it spans an angle in the sky almost half as wide as the full Moon. Actually, the comet is even bigger than it looks. While the Moon is a mere 240 thousand miles away, Comet Holmes is 150 million miles from Earth. The comet's physical diameter is thus seven times wider than the planet Jupiter--and it is still expanding.
Last night (Hallowe'en) I was flipping channels and I came across a show I had not seen before. It caught my attention so I decided to watch it for awhile and ended up watching the whole show. Near the end, Dani Reese is being held captive by a rapist but manages to secretly call her partner, Charlie Crews, on her cell phone. And what time is it when she calls him? 11:11. It was there for just a split second but I saw it. I checked the tv guide to see if it was on again later on another channel and thankfully it was so I taped it to make sure I had seen what I was sure I had seen.
(I changed the following pictures from the ones I took of the tv screen with my camera to screen prints of the episode video now available on the www.nbc.com/Life website, as they are clearer images.)
It is interesting that the show is called Life. It is interesting that she "called" at 11:11. Dani was being held captive with a gun to her head. Her "life" was on "the line". It was her 11th Hour.
This is a "clue" that 11:11 is connected to "Life" and to our "11 Hour". It is a wake-up "call", a warning. It is also interesting that this show was on Hallowe'en night - actually, as well as on the show. The "scariest" night of the year. Also connecting to warning.
(Note: A mistake on the show is that it is taking place on Hallowe'en; however, the cell phone date is October 12, 2007 not October 31, 2007. Another mistake is that when Dani arrives home, there are little children out trick-or-treating. Little children are not out trick-or-treating at 11 o'clock at night.)
Giant exploding star outshines previous supernovas
POSTED: 4:44 p.m. EDT, May 7, 2007
By Marsha Walton
(CNN) -- Scientists have just released images of the brightest stellar explosion recorded. The supernova, known as SN 2006gy, was believed to be about 150 times as massive as the sun. The explosion could help astronomers better understand how the first generation of stars in the universe died.
"This supernova stands out as the brightest supernova that's ever been observed," said Nathan Smith, astrophysicist at the University of California at Berkeley. "The reason we're so excited is because it was so powerful we think it may require a new type of explosion mechanism that we've never observed before," said Smith at a news conference from NASA headquarters in Washington. A supernova is a rare and often dramatic phenomenon that involves the explosion of most of the material within a star. Supernovas can be very bright for a short time and usually release huge amounts of energy.
A graduate student using a robotic telescope that was part of the Texas Supernova Search project first detected SN 2006gy on September 18, 2006. For about 70 days it got brighter, peaking with a brightness comparable to 50 billion suns, much brighter than most other supernovas. Supernovas are usually bright for a couple of weeks at most. Astronomers captured the star's demise using NASA's Chandra X-Ray Observatory, and ground- based telescopes at the Lick Observatory in California and the Keck Observatory in Hawaii. The explosion was estimated about 238 million light years away from Earth. Scientists believe supernova SN 2006gy expelled many of its outer layers in an eruption before its violent collapse. When it exploded, it plowed into the cooler gases that had already been expelled, creating the brightest light show ever from a supernova.
Mario Livio, astrophysicist from the Space Telescope Science Institute in Baltimore, Maryland, calls the discovery "extraordinarily intriguing" for a theorist such as himself. "We may be learning something entirely new about how massive stars explode," said Livio. "We are seeing a new type of explosion that has so far only existed in theory, and we believe the first stars in the universe exploded by this mechanism. It may provide a new lesson in the evolution of stars, and a star in our own galaxy may do the same thing tomorrow," he said.
Astronomers say the star that became SN 2006gy expelled a large amount of its mass before it exploded. A huge star in the Milky Way, Eta Carinae, has already erupted in a similar fashion. So if it explodes as a supernova, it could present the best light show seen, because it is a mere 7,500 light years away from our planet.
SN 2006gy was an extremely energetic supernova, sometimes referred to as a hypernova, that was discovered around September 18, 2006. It was first observed by Robert Quimby and P. Mondol, and then studied by several teams of astronomers using facilities that included the Chandra, Lick, and Keck Observatories. On May 7, 2007, NASA and several of the astronomers announced the first detailed analyses of the supernova, describing it as the "brightest stellar explosion ever recorded". In October 2007 Quimby announced that SN 2005ap had broken SN 2006gy's record as the brightest ever recorded supernova.
2006gy occurred in a distant galaxy (NGC 1260), approximately 238 million light years (72 megaparsecs) away. Therefore, due to the time it took light from the supernova to reach Earth, the event occurred about 238 million years ago.

National Hurricane Center
Noel Becomes Hurricane; Toll at 115
By JESSICA ROBERTSON Associated Press Writer
NASSAU, Bahamas Nov 2, 2007 (AP)
Hurricane Noel, the deadliest storm to hit the Atlantic this year, is not expected to gain strength in the next 24 hours as it tracks northward toward the U.S. but it may grow in size, forecasters said Friday. Noel slammed the Caribbean earlier this week with heavy rains that caused flooding and mudslides, leaving 115 dead, officials said.
After drenching the Bahamas and Cuba on Thursday, the Category 1 hurricane continued along its path between the southeastern coast of the U.S. and the Bahamas. Its sustained winds were at 80 mph early Friday and its center was about 470 miles south of Cape Hatteras, N.C., the U.S. National Hurricane Center in Miami said. Noel is moving to the north-northeast at about 18 mph. Jack Beven, a hurricane specialist at the center, said Friday that "we don't expect the center to cross the U.S. coast. The track would take the center of the system over Nova Scotia."
This track takes the center not only over Nova Scotia, but over Digby, Nova Scotia, where I was born.
From Funk & Wagnall's Standard College Dictionary:
REVERIE - 1) abstracted musing; dreaming
It's time to wake up.
There is ample evidence in the literature of ancient civilizations that such disasters have occured in the past and also clues that they knew when another such calamity would occur. The Dresden Codex of the Maya for instance, contains the secrets of the sunspot cycle, about which our modern astronomers know almost nothing! In his books, Patrick Geryl continues his scientific analysis of the millennia-old codes of the Maya and Egyptians that refer to the coming super-disaster. He determines that both cultures arose from an antediluvian civilization which was able to calculate the previous polar shifts and that we should take very seriously their calculations that place the next reversal in 2012!"
Does it all point to a pole reversal and world cataclysm in 2012? It certainly
is an idea and subject worth considering and researching...
Another interesting part of Mr. Geryl's work is that he believes he knows the location of the Egyptian 'Hall of Records' and is trying to find it at Hawara:
June 11, 2006 Interview (portion)
Joanna Maro: "What are you searching for at Giza?"
Patrick Geryl: "There have been rumors for thousands of years about an age-old time capsule hidden in the earth of Egypt, that has fired the imagination of the general public. This capsule is supposed to be infinitely more important than the treasures of Tutankhamen. The reports are that the 'Hall of Records' has secret chambers filled with technological tour de forces of a forgotten civilization that was much older than the Egyptian one. In other words: the quest for the spiritual and cultural origins of civilization, and its true destiny."
Maro: "Why do you want to excavate it? What is your exact drive?"
Geryl: "The 'Circle of Gold' contains information through which the pre-tidal wave civilization was able to calculate the exact day of the previous polar reversal. That is to say, the moment when the North Pole changed place with the South Pole, accompanied by a huge catastrophe. The population was destroyed worldwide. For that reason they wanted to preserve their discoveries for later generations. When we dig up this information it will have world-shocking consequences. It will turn the complete archaeological world upside-down. The present astronomers will be scared out of their wits. Fifteen thousand years ago a civilization ruling on earth was able to theoretically calculate the sunspot cycle, something our present sun specialists are still not able to do! With the help of this, they knew how to calculate exactly the date of the previous catastrophe. They escaped to Egypt and South America, where they built a new culture. We therefore have to take Noah's story literally."
Maro: "Can you give us a more detailed description of what you hope to find in the 'Hall of Records'?"
Geryl: "The archives we can find there concern a civilization that had the same background and culture as the Old Egyptians, as well as the same laws, arts and diplomacy. And let's not forget the secret knowledge hidden in their Holy Scriptures."
Update August 2007
No progress was made at the Giza plateau.
The Labyrinth will be scanned late 2007.
Results will be known early 2008.
This inspired me to review my own calculations and map of where I believe the 'Hall of Records' to be. I have only briefly talked about this in my paper, but I have done extensive work on this. In fact, thanks to Google Earth, I have been able to pin-point the exact location where I believe it could be. I wonder if I will ever get the chance to find out...
GIANT COMET: "Formerly, the sun was the largest object in the Solar System," says University of Hawaii astronomer David Jewett. "Now, Comet 17P/Holmes holds that distinction." On Nov. 9th, a team of Hawaii astronomers led by Rachel Stevenson measured the diameter of the comet's expanding debris cloud: 1.4 million kilometers, slightly larger than the sun itself.

Thousands homeless after cyclone hits Bangladesh
(CNN) -- Thousands were left homeless Friday after a powerful tropical cyclone crashed ashore in Bangladesh, uprooting trees, destroying homes and damaging buildings where residents had sought shelter.Selva Sinnadurai, head of the International Federation of the Red Cross delegation in Bangladesh, told CNN that power and telephone lines were also down, making it difficult to assess damage. "Many are feared dead," Sinnadurai said.
CNN International meteorologists said that Sidr slammed ashore around 9:45 p.m. (1445 GMT) Thursday along the India-Bangladesh border as a Category 4 storm. Meteorologist Kevin Corriveau said the storm sped up as it approached shore and reached land before forecasters had predicted it would. As it crossed over land, it began to weaken but still brought torrential rainfall and floods to the low-lying area.
As the cyclone neared landfall Thursday night, volunteers were banging drums and trying to get people in low coastal areas in Bangladesh to evacuate, a spokeswoman for the Bangladesh Red Crescent Society said. Sinnadurai said about 30,000 volunteers along Bangladesh's coast were taking people to cyclone shelters."About 600,000 people have already evacuated," Nabiha Chowdhury told CNN Thursday night. She put the total number of people in areas along the coast at about 2 million, but said it was difficult to tell because of the many tourists that flock to the region. World Vision, the international aid agency, said Thursday it is working with volunteers to help house 20,000 people.
Bangladesh, low-lying and with isolated villages, is extremely susceptible to the storm surge Sidr is expected to bring. The Bangladesh Meteorological Department estimated Thursday that Sidr would cause a storm surge of 15 to 20 feet above normal tides for some lower coastal areas.
The U.S. Embassy in Delhi has issued a statement to Americans in the region, warning of "heavy rains, flooding, strong winds, damage to buildings, and other life-threatening conditions." "Immediately prepare for the possibility that they could be without power and/or communications and unable to move by road for some time if the storm hits their area. Airports and seaports are also likely to be closed should the storm intensify as expected," the Tuesday statement says.
It appeared Bangladesh would bear the brunt of the storm, only months after monsoon rains brought misery across much of the country. The United Nations called the August flooding in India, Nepal and Bangladesh "the worst flooding in living memory." And Bangladesh has a long history with deadly cyclones. In 1991, a devastating cyclone killed at least 140,000 people, according to the United Nations. And in 1970, Cyclone Bhola struck Bangladesh -- then East Pakistan -- killing 500,000 people. The U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration considers that storm to be "the greatest tropical system disaster" of the century...

Cult awaits end of days in cave after leader's arrest
MOSCOW, Russia (CNN) -- Members of a Russian doomsday cult barricaded themselves in a cave to wait out the end of the world as the cult's leader underwent psychiatric exams Thursday, Russian media reported. The cult leader is in police custody awaiting proceedings on charges that he set up an organization "whose activity is associated with violence on citizens and instigation to refuse to perform their civil duties," according to the state-funded Itar-Tass news agency.
Four children are among 29 cult members holed up in a ravine in Russia's Penza region, where they apparently dug a cave. One of the children in the cave is 18 months old, reported Itar-Tass. Temperatures in the cave are below 54 degrees Fahrenheit (12 degrees Celsius), the Russian news agency reported. The cult members have refused law enforcement requests to come out or release the children, and they have threatened to commit suicide if police resort to force, according to Russian state television.
The cult, which calls itself the "true Russian Orthodox Church," believes the end of the world will come in May 2008.
I wondered why May 2008. I thought again of my MAY 15 date. Is it connected?
Not much information is available on the Internet about why this date, but one idea someone put forth is that the World Population is expected to reach 6.66 billion - connecting to 666 - in possibly May of next year.
NOTE: See Chapter 18-14 Post #823.
Evan is a news anchor who has just been elected Buffalo's member of Congress
so he and his family move to Virginia/Washington. His platform promise was
to "Change The World."
In their first night in their new home, Evan's wife tells Evan he should
pray. "You're the one who said he wanted to change the world. I'd take all
the help I could get." So Evan prays to God, "Please help me to change the
(Note: Evan ends his prayer with "I'm going to hang up now." This telephone/calling-related symbolism is used extensively in music lyrics and videos as a metaphor for communicating with God. Believe it or not.)
The next morning the alarm goes off at 6:14. Evan says, "That's weird. I
set it to go off at 7."
On the way out the door to his first day at his new office, Evan trips
over a crate on his front doorstep. He has not ordered anything. The crate
is from 'Alpha and Omega Hardware' and is full of old tools.
(Revelation 22:13 - I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last.)
Their new address is 614 Oakwood Lane.
The next morning the alarm goes off at 6:14 again. Thinking it must be broken,
Evan angrily unplugs the alarm clock and shoves it in a drawer.
He looks out the window and sees a truck delivering a load of lumber. The
company is called Go-4-Wood. Evan tells them he did not order the
wood but they say they are just the deliverymen and to call the company.
As Evan is calling the company, he looks at the TV screen and sees GENESIS
Evan starts to "wake-up" (to the truth of reality).
He starts to realize that something strange, something supernatural, is going on.
He starts to realize that these coincidences are not just an occurrence of chance.
He starts to "connect the dots."
He searches for a Bible and looks up Genesis 6:14:
"Make thee an ark of gopherwood;"
Now Evan is "wide-awake."
He "connects another dot" and runs outside to check the order sheet from the lumber.
Gopherwood... Go-4-Wood. (Also, it is order number 6-14.)
Just as he "makes the connection" God speaks to him. He says, "Go-4-Wood.
Get it? Well, it's not really gopherwood. I just like the word play." [The
writer missed a good one. God tells Evan it is actually maple and pine. The
writer should have made it oakwood - to connect to Evan's new address.]
God tells Evan that he wants him to build an ark. Evan doesn't believe
that God is really God and that any of this is really true. He denies it
all, laughs it off, walks away, and leaves for work. But God is
When Evan gets to the office, he is inundated with a series of 614 coincidences.
His secretary Rita tells him that their new extension number is 614; his
co-worker Marty tells him that a girl from their old office just had a baby
that weighed 6 lbs.14 oz.; his junior co-worker Eugene hands him his new
license plates that read GEN 614.
Evan can no longer deny it. He has no choice but to finally believe
it really is all true.
These "coincidences" echo the ones I experience. I have tried to document them all (most of them) in this paper to prove it. But I certainly do appreciate this movie. Thank you!
It is interesting that GOD is the one behind Evan's 614 coincidences. Just as I believe GOD is the one behind the 11:11 coincidences.
God wanted Evan to DO something. Does God want the 11:11'ers to DO something? I believe so. But many of the 11:11'ers I am aware of do not believe so. Many are still in the denial stage. Many deny the "coincidences" mean anything. Many deny the "coincidences" are created by an outside, supernatural force. Many do not want to even think about the "coincidence" past the actual event No interest in "connecting the dots." No interest in trying to figure out the whos, whats, whys, and hows. But that is their choice. Not "their" choice, but their individual choice. And choice (and consequence) is what it is all about. (Many are just starting to believe that it might have something to do with December 21, 2012.)
I wonder... like what started it all with Evan... did any of them ever wish they could "Change The World"?
But Evan was lucky. He only had to "connect the dots" for one day. God actually appeared to him and told him face-to-face what He wanted. No years and years of having to wonder and try to figure it out.
Just imagine if God never physically revealed himself to Evan but continued to inundate him with these 614 coincidences everywhere he turned. Would Evan think he was going crazy? (He was starting to think so and said he had to get his head screwed back on straight.) If he tried to tell anyone about it - and especially if he said he thought it was God - would they think he was crazy? Paranoid schizophrenic? (Evan's wife did leave him and was on her way to her parents' with their three boys when God intervened and she turned around and went back to Evan.)
What would he do? Would he say to himself, "I don't know what is going on. I must be going crazy" and withdraw into himself and away from his family, friends, and society, turn to alcohol or drugs to distract/numb his mind - or even attempt the ultimate escape, or seek psychiatric help and go on some type of medication? OR... Would he say, "I know something is going on here, and I think it is God, so I am going to try to handle this in a rational way, even if no one believes me and I have to do it alone, and I am going to look at these "coincidences" as "clues to a mystery" and try to figure out what is happening, why it's happening and why it's happening to me, and what it all means."
What would you do?
(And don't say, "It's just a movie" because, believe me, this really is happening to people. This paper proves it.)
UPDATE: November 19, 2007 Juli Almighty :)
We rented and watched this movie on Saturday. Yesterday (Sunday) we returned it. Last night a thought suddenly struck me. How much did it cost to rent? I remember hearing the price at the time, but the clerk was trying to convince us to buy a coupon book so it just went in one ear and out the other. But as I thought about it, I was sure it was $6.14. (Remember that I didn't know about the 614 connection when we rented it.) The receipt was nowhere to be found.
So I went back to the store this morning and re-rented it. I had to know. Sure enough. It was $6.14. Just to be sure, I asked the clerk if all the new releases were this price or if it was just a joke for this movie. He looked at me funny and said all the new releases were this price, but that they had just changed it recently as it was $6.03 a little while ago (11¢ increase). I explained to him that if he had seen the movie he would understand why I was asking and told him about the 614 connection. Another clerk standing nearby said, "Oh yeah! Genesis 6:14!" They laughed about the $6.14 price and said I was the first person to notice it. (Who else would notice these things? :)
See what I mean?
ARIZONA LEONIDS: The 2007 Leonid meteor shower peaked this morning. In most places the display was muted, but not in Portal, Arizona: "Wow! I witnessed a great display," reports Brian Whittaker who spent the hours before dawn watching the dark skies above Jack Newton's Arizona Sky Village. "There were many bright, quick Leonids, including this rainbow colored meteor." Earth may have run into a small filament of comet dust just before the sun came up over Arizona; Brian was in the right place at the right time for a good show.
The program was entitled Doomsday 2012 - The End Of Days and talked about several prophesies throughout history which have pointed to this year, and in particular, to the date of December 21, 2012.
The prophesies discussed were the Sybilline Prophecy, The Oracle of Delphi, the Mayan Calendar, the Pole Shift theory, the I-Ching, Terrence McKenna's Time Wave Zero theory, the prophecies of Merlin/Myrddin (not the King Arthur Merlin), Mother Shipton, John and the Book of Revelation, Dakota Sioux Shaman Black Elk, the Hopi, and the WWW Web Bot Project. (The Egyptian Zodiac/Precession was not discussed but that is another major one that points directly to December 21, 2012 - See Chapter 13 - 11:11.)
Following are some excerpts from the show:
The Sybil lived in the Roman Empire 6th century BC near modern-day Naples. Her prophesies were collected in a series of scrolls and kept in the Temple of Jupiter and were considered the most important religious books of Ancient Rome. She prophesied many events which did happen and one of her prophesies was of a distant apocalypse. She predicted the the world would last for 9 periods of 800 years each. The 10th generation would begin approximately 2000 AD and it would be the last.
The Mayan Calendar shows that on December 21, 2012 the Earth will be in exact alignment with the Sun and the center of the Milky Way Galaxy (Hunab Ku). A galactic event which takes place every 25,800 years (actually 25,920). No one knows what effect this extraordinary alignment will have on the Earth but the Mayans believed it would be dire. One theory is that perhaps as we cross the galactic equator there will be a field effect reversal and the magnetic currents will begin to spin in the opposite direction causing a Pole Shift.
The program then discusses the Pole Shift theory stating that geophysicists and other scientists have this similar theory to the Mayan galactic alignment. And it is not based on myth or unlikely scenarios, but backed by science. It would be the ultimate planetary catastrophe. (I talked about this in post #730 showing how many believe they have evidence based on astronomical cycles and codes that the next catastrophic pole shift will occur on December 21, 2012.)
The program next talked about the I-Ching. According to one theory (Terrence McKenna's Time Wave Zero theory) the identical doomsday date can be found in China's oldest text - the I-Ching - which was used for prophecy. The I-Ching is believed to have been created in 2800 BC. Terrence McKenna noticed a pattern in the 64 hexagrams of the I-Ching. He saw that the 6 lines and 64 possible combinations could be expressed as a ratio of change in each hexagram and plotted on a graph. When he mapped the graph over a timeline, he found intriguing correlations that matched all 4000 years of recorded history. He began in 2800 BC with the creation of the I-Ching. The 64 hexagrams repeat 64 times over history. The strangest thing of all is that his timeline came to an end on December 21, 2012. It was only later that he found out that the Mayans ended their calendar on that date too.
The program discussed other oracles, shamans, etc. (mentioned above) who also had apocalyptic visions and prophecies.
The last item discussed was the WWW Web Bot Project which was a project started in the late 1990's to predict stock futures. It is a series of computer programs called spiders which scan the Internet looking for key words. Apparently the results were able to predict certain events (like 9/11) and point to a world cataclysm in 2012. George Ure, one of the creators of the Web Bot Project, says, "We could see an extreme solar event. Does that mean some plasma discharge that comes out and slaps the Earth around and burns a good chunk of North America - except for people in caves? A little early to tell on that."
"Except for people in caves"... What interesting timing for that statement with the current headline news of the Russian Doomsday Cult barricading themselves in a cave awaiting the end of the world (post #733).
Dhalan Mridha was grieving for family members who died in the cyclone after ignoring an alert issued by authorities. "Nothing is going to happen. That was our first thought and we went to bed. Just before midnight the winds came like hundreds of demons."
And yet another example of ignoring a warning, believing nothing is going to happen, and falling asleep (not "awake"). And just before midnight all hell breaks loose.
And yet another metaphor.
BEWARE THE JELLYFISH: Comet 17P/Holmes is swallowing a star! Not really, but it looks that way. Tonight, Comet Holmes is passing directly in front of Mirfak, the brightest star of the constellation Perseus.
Yesterday the MS Explorer cruise ship struck an iceberg in Antarctic waters near Argentina, sinking early this morning about 20 hours after the accident. When this news first broke yesterday, my first thought - as apparently it did to many - turned to the Titanic.
Canadian-owned ship sinks in Antarctic; passengers, crew safe
12 Canadians among those forced to wait hours in lifeboats
Last Updated: Saturday, November 24, 2007 | 12:16 AM ET
All passengers and crew members (154) aboard a Canadian-owned cruise ship were rescued Friday after the vessel struck ice and sank in Antarctic waters near Argentina. The Explorer, owned by Toronto-based G.A.P Adventures, was completing a tour of Antarctica when the accident happened around midnight ET in the Bransfield Strait off King George Island, Antarctica. The ship sank shortly before 8 p.m. ET. Passengers and crew members piled into lifeboats shortly after the ship began taking on water through a hole the "size of a fist" in the vessel's hull, said Susan Hayes, the travel agency's vice-president of marketing. "The passengers are absolutely fine," Hayes said. "They're all accounted for. No injuries whatsoever." A Norwegian ship heading for the nearby South Shetland Islands responded to a distress call and picked up the stranded passengers and crew members. The cruise liner Nordnorge took them to a Chilean military base at Fildes Peninsula, west of King George Island. They were to spend the night at the base before being flown from the region on Saturday.
Was there an 11:11 connection to this accident? Yes. The ship left port on 11/11:

The 38-year-old Liberian-flagged liner had set out from Ushuaia on the southern tip of Argentina on November 11 for a 19-day voyage through the Drake Passage.
With the connection of this ship sinking to the sinking of the Titanic, now may be a pertinent time to mention some of the many interesting connections related to the Titanic:
The most visual connection to 1111 are the four smokestacks of the Titanic
which look just like 1111.
One of the most interesting connections of the Titanic to 1111 and to the
year 2012 is the fact that 2012 will be the 100th anniversary of the sinking
of the Titanic. The Titanic hit the iceberg on April 14, 1912, just before
midnight. Also interesting is that there are 36,777 days between April
14, 1912 and December 21, 2012 again connecting to the
From and including: Sunday, April 14, 1912
To and including: Friday, December 21, 2012
It is 36,777 days from the start date to the end date, end date included
Or 100 years, 8 months, 8 days including the end date
(At the beginning of these Chapter 18's I display a license plate 18-777. 18+18=36-777.)
The Titanic sank off the coast of Nova Scotia and Newfoundland, thus another
connection to Nova Scotia.
Survivors were taken to New York; The dead were brought to the port of Halifax,
Nova Scotia where many of them were buried:
(The passenger and crew list includes 9 Harris, 3 Harrison, 1 Mullen, 1 Mullin: museum.gov.ns.ca/mma/titanic/passcrew.htm.)
(I was conceived in Halifax. Possibly even on 11/11 (1959) at 11:11 am - see My King Arthur / Holy Grail Connections chapter.)
Some sources cite there were 2229 people aboard the Titanic (i.e.
This connects to Swissair Flight 111 which crashed on September 2 (2/9),
1998 - again off the coast of Nova Scotia - killing all 229 people

The Titanic is a symbol of mankind's arrogance. Billed as "The Unsinkable
Ship", the Titanic hit an iceberg and sank on its maiden voyage. So sure
were they that it would never sink, there were not enough lifeboats for all
the people onboard. Also, the ship was divided into different sections according
to the "classes" of people. The higher the class you were, the higher the
deck you were on the ship; the lower the class you were, the lower you were
on the ship. (Everyone is equal, but some are more equal than
(An interesting "coincidence" is that just a few days ago my husband was reading an article in our newspaper about a cruise ship segregating some areas (restaurants, swimming pools) for only the "richer" passengers, and I said, "Just like the Titanic." )
Is the fact that the sinking of the Titanic's 100th anniversary comes in 2012 a connection between the "doomed" ship and to perhaps our "Doomsday" in 2012?
Syria Agrees to Attend Mideast Summit
By ANNE GEARAN AP Diplomatic Writer
WASHINGTON Nov 25, 2007 (AP)
Arab holdout Syria agreed Sunday to attend a Mideast peace conference called by President Bush to restart talks to resolve the six-decade conflict between Israel and the Palestinians, yet expectations for the summit remained low. The two sides came to Washington without agreeing on basic terms for their negotiations.
Bush invited the Israeli and Palestinian leaders to separate meetings at the White House on Monday to prepare for the centerpiece of his Mideast gathering an all-day session Tuesday in Annapolis, Md. It is to be the only time that Bush, Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas meet together, and their three-way handshake is expected to be the conference's symbolic high point. Bush closes the U.S. effort with a second set of separate Israeli and Palestinian meetings at the White House on Wednesday.
"The broad attendance at this conference by regional states and other key international participants demonstrates the international resolve to seize this important opportunity to advance freedom and peace in the Middle East," Bush said in a statement Sunday...

Syria, which borders Israel and has no diplomatic relations with the Jewish state, gave Washington a partial victory Sunday by agreeing to send a lower-level envoy to the session. Syria wants to raise the question of the Golan Heights, strategic territory Israel seized from Syria in the 1967 war. The U.S. hosts and Israel have agreed, at least tacitly, to listen. Other major Arab states whose participation was considered essential had decided on Friday to send their top diplomats.
As 16 Arab nations and the Arab League prepared to sit down with Israel for the first time in more than a decade, Israel's ambassador to Washington said what Arab leaders say and do after the conference can change the bitter atmosphere in the Middle East. "Annapolis is about two things," Ambassador Sallai Meridor said in an interview. Foremost is furthering direct talks between Israel and the Palestinians "and the other thing it is important for is creating international and Arab support for this process," Meridor said. "We hope the Arabs will come and come with a spirit of peace."

Draw a clock face, Juli. Add up the numbers on the clockface from 12 to 3 = 18 or 666 (first quarter), then add from 3 to 6 = 18 or 666 (2nd quarter)... this is sounding like a football game ; - ) then add from 6 to 9 a very significant era (age) the digital age, and you get 30 or 101010. (third quarter) - where we began to understand because of the technology (when did this start?) I remember when I was a child Walt Disney was already experimenting with digital technology... how far does it go back? hmnn or is it that this age went fast because everything is speeding up with technology (oh how time flies) Now let us look from 9 until 12 again!!! this is 42 or 141414 the final quarter of the game!! The generations age or ion or eon or aeon or era. The time of the coming of the CHRIST. This is the period of the birth, death and resurrection of CHRIST. The coming again of Christ! I believe we must be in it! also known as the 9th thru 12th hours on the clock. As you have said everything points to we are in about the 11th hour or approaching it... the age of Aquarius/Pisces the water jar (pouring out of the holy spirit) and the FISH.
The 14-14-14 information especially caught my eye. I had already figured out something very interesting about this in early 1999, just after this all started with me on December 12 of 1998. (I talk about this discovery - how it points to my exact birth date - at the beginning of My King Arthur / Holy Grail Connections chapter.)
So I decided to do as she said, and I drew the clock she was describing to "see" what I could "see." I started 12 o'clock (Midnight) at 2012 (December 21, 2012) and worked backwards. Some very interesting numbers came up:
12:00 - (Midnight/Countdown Complete/Time Is Up) - 2012 - December 21, 2012 - The end of the Mayan "Long Count 18.104.22.168.0" Calendar; The Egyptian "Last Time" (according to my calculations - see Chapter 13 - 11:11); The Biblical Apocalypse / Judgment Day? (also see aforementioned chapter).
11:00 - (The 11th Hour) - 1998 - December 12, 1998 - The day of my "awakening" when I realized that I was involved in something unbelievable connected to God - the day (split second actually) my life was forever changed - see My 11:11 Story.
8:00 - 1960 - August 14, 1960 - My birth date.
It is also interesting that the "Last Quarter" goes from 9:00 - 12:00 and I was born at 9:12 a.m. Atlantic Daylight Time. Or perhaps even more significant is that I was born at 8:12 Atlantic Standard Time, and 8:00 is 1960 - my birth year - The Beginning - and 12:00 - The End.
Other interesting numbers:

Digging to resume for long-rumoured Oak Island treasure
Four Americans to launch $200,000 treasure hunt in N.S.Stumble Upon
Published Thursday November 29th, 2007
HALIFAX - The hunt for buried treasure on Nova Scotia's Oak Island is about to resume for the first time in more than a decade. Four Americans plan to spend at least $200,000 to drill next month at a spot they believe holds the key to unlocking a mystery that has foiled treasure hunters for more than 200 years.
Local partner Dan Blankenship says he and his four associates will focus their efforts on an underground shaft called Borehole 10X. "I made some very, very important discoveries that were not followed diligently," Blankenship said of earlier exploration efforts.
For two centuries, treasure hunters have been drawn to the tiny windswept island by stories of pirate treasure buried in a booby-trapped shaft known as the Money Pit. Theories suggest the pit is home to everything from Captain Kidd's pirate booty and the Holy Grail, to the lost jewels of Marie Antoinette and treasure plundered by Sir Francis Drake from French and Spanish ships.
At least six people have died trying to find treasure there since 1795, when three boys found a concealed shaft beneath a big oak tree. Blankenship said he's found evidence of wire, chain and low-carbon steel in bedrock 60 metres below the surface. He wouldn't say if he has a specific schedule of work to be done. "If I did, I wouldn't tell you," he said with a chuckle. The company is starting out by spending $200,000 on drilling "and other things." The results of that initial work will determine what happens next. "We'll play it by ear," Blankenship said.
Oak Island has been the scene of excavations going back to 1795, when a local boy supposedly found an unusual depression in the ground. Digging in the following decades reportedly turned up a series of platforms going down to at least 18 metres. Strange objects including a gold chain, a human hand and a stone inscribed with runes are said to have appeared in the pit. But water flooded in and frustrated further excavations.
EMERGING SUNSPOT: A new sunspot is emerging over the sun's eastern limb and it could be a big one, at least by the standards of solar minimum.
COMET 17P/HOLMES: Contrary to rumor, Comet 17P/Holmes has not faded away. From any dark starry-skied observing site, it remains visible to the naked eye. Although the comet is not as bright as it was when it exploded in late October, it makes up for its lack of surface brightness by sheer size: the comet is huge! It looks like a faint Moon-sized puff of cloud in the middle of the constellation Perseus--a really splendid sight.
Can you find the comet in this Nov. 16th photo of the great pyramids of Giza?
BIG SUNSPOT: Sunspot 978 popped over the sun's eastern limb yesterday and it is quickly becoming one of the largest sunspots of the year.

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An already relentless melting of the Arctic greatly accelerated this summer, a warning sign that some scientists worry could mean global warming has passed an ominous tipping point. One even speculated that summer sea ice would be gone in five years.
Greenland's ice sheet melted nearly 19 billion tons more than the previous high mark, and the volume of Arctic sea ice at summer's end was half what it was just four years earlier, according to new NASA satellite data obtained by The Associated Press. "The Arctic is screaming," said Mark Serreze, senior scientist at the government's snow and ice data center in Boulder, Colorado.
Just last year, two top scientists surprised their colleagues by projecting that the Arctic sea ice was melting so rapidly that it could disappear entirely by the summer of 2040. This week, after reviewing his own new data, NASA climate scientist Jay Zwally said: "At this rate, the Arctic Ocean could be nearly ice-free at the end of summer by 2012, much faster than previous predictions."
A few days ago, I noticed something curious about the shape of Sunspot group 978. It was shaped like an upsidedown V:
December 9, 2007
This made me think of my Post #559 in Chapter 18-10. This is the same shape as the symbol on the 'Tomb of Jesus' as well as the Stargate SG-1 symbol for Earth. This symbol can also be created by typing ALT 911 - Å.
911 is connected to "Emergency."
911 is connected to the tragedy of 9/11.
911 is connected to the Egyptian "Last Time" (Biblical Judgment Day?) which I have discovered will occur on December 21, 2012 at 9:11 pm Universal Time (11:11 pm Giza Time). (See Chapter 13 - 11:11.)
Oddly enough, on spaceweather.com on December 9, 2007 - the same day the above picture was taken - the number of PHA's was 911:
SUN BUZZ: The solar physics community is abuzz this week. No, there haven't been any great eruptions or solar storms. The source of the excitement is a modest knot of magnetism that popped up on the sun, possibly heralding the start of a new solar cycle: full story.
Is a New Solar Cycle Beginning?
Dec. 14, 2007: The solar physics community is abuzz this week. No, there haven't been any great eruptions or solar storms. The source of the excitement is a modest knot of magnetism that popped over the sun's eastern limb on Dec. 11th, pictured below in a pair of images from the orbiting Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO). It may not look like much, but "this patch of magnetism could be a sign of the next solar cycle," says solar physicist David Hathaway of the Marshall Space Flight Center.
For more than a year, the sun has been experiencing a lull in activity, marking the end of Solar Cycle 23, which peaked with many furious storms in 2000--2003. "Solar minimum is upon us," he says.
The big question now is, when will the next solar cycle begin?
It could be starting now.
"New solar cycles always begin with a high-latitude, reversed polarity sunspot," explains Hathaway. "Reversed polarity" means a sunspot with opposite magnetic polarity compared to sunspots from the previous solar cycle. "High-latitude" refers to the sun's grid of latitude and longitude. Old cycle spots congregate near the sun's equator. New cycle spots appear higher, around 25 or 30 degrees latitude.
The region that appeared on Dec. 11th fits both these criteria. It is high latitude (24 degrees N) and magnetically reversed. Just one problem: There is no sunspot. So far the region is just a bright knot of magnetic fields. If, however, these fields coalesce into a dark sunspot, scientists are ready to announce that Solar Cycle 24 has officially begun.
Many forecasters believe Solar Cycle 24 will be big and intense. Peaking in 2011 or 2012, the cycle to come could have significant impacts on telecommunications, air traffic, power grids and GPS systems. (And don't forget the Northern Lights!) In this age of satellites and cell phones, the next solar cycle could make itself felt as never before. (See Post #730 above.)
The furious storms won't start right away, however. Solar cycles usually take a few years to build to a frenzy and Cycle 24 will be no exception. "We still have some quiet times ahead," says Hathaway.
Meanwhile, all eyes are on a promising little active region. Will it become the first sunspot of a new solar cycle? Stay tuned for updates from [email protected]

(And just above Vishten - 11:11 in the 'Roots/Traditional Group Recording of the Year' category was The Rankin Family - Reunion. This was a group which had a great influence on me and inspired me to learn to play the piano by ear (because there was no sheet music yet available) and to write my own music (which I wrote for them to use but was denied the chance to give them). This was just prior to when this all started happening with me back in 1998 and I know The Rankin Family were part of the process that enabled me to "see.")
Anyway... Seeing the Vishten - 11:11 ECMA nomination inspired me to sit down and write a 'Letter To The Editor' about 11:11.
I wonder if they will print it...
(Update: Well, it's been a week and they haven't yet so I guess they aren't going to. Expected but still disappointing.)

CAVEAT IMPACTOR: There are widespread reports today of an Tunguska-sized asteroid on a collision course with Mars, The odds are 1 in 75 that 2007 WD5 will hit the Red Planet in late January. While this would be exciting to observe, it probably won't happen. The asteroid was discovered in late November and has been tracked for barely a month. This means its orbit is not well determined. As more observations in the weeks ahead refine the asteroid's path, the chances of a Mars collision will almost certainly evaporate. Of course, sometimes the unlikely does happen. Stay tuned for updates.
I emailed her back and told her that I had been checking out timeanddate.com earlier and found that from December 12, 1998 to January 27, 2008 was 3333 days. I also noted that she had sent her email at 11:11:45 my time.
The next day, on December 25, she emailed me back and wondered if the 11:11 time stamp was a "sign/warning." She wondered if debris from the asteroid hitting Mars could impact Earth in any way. (She sent that one at 12:12.)
I then looked at spaceweather.com again and saw a report about another asteroid - TU24 - that will come close to Earth on January 29 - the day before the Mars one on January 30. (Spaceweather.com has since updated its December 25 page, but it can still be seen on the December 24 one.)
ASTEROID FLYBY: Mark your calendar: On Jan. 29, 2008, one night before a Tunguska-class (50m-wide) asteroid threatens to strike Mars, an even larger asteroid will fly past our own planet. At closest approach, 2007 TU24 will be 1.4 lunar distances from Earth. There's no danger of a collision, but the 400m-wide space rock will be close enough to phtograph through backyard telescopes as it speeds through the constellation Cassiopeia glowing like a 10th magnitude star. [ephemeris] [orbit]
I checked out the orbit link and noted that the closest the asteroid will come to Earth is 0.0045 AU on January 29. I noticed the connection between the 0.0045 and the 11:11:45 of the 11:11 "sign/warning" time.
My reader friend wondered if there was any chance that these two asteroids could cross paths and impact each other. (Maybe on January 27 - my 3333 date?)
This morning (December 26) I remembered that I had recently posted about the number of PHA's (Potentially Hazardous Asteroids) on spaceweather.com hitting 911 - which I connected to 'Emergency' - and wondered if it was a "warning." (See post #751.)
I wondered if the asteroid that made the PHA counter hit 911 was - just by chance - this asteroid TU24.
Sure enough. It was:
I checked the orbits of both WD5 and TU24 and they come nowhere near each other so there is no chance of collision.
But is there any possible chance TU24 could collide with the Moon?
TU24 was discovered on October 11, 2007. The date of closest approach is January 29, 2008:
29 means "crash."
From October 11, 2007 to January 29, 2008 is 111
From and including: Thursday, October 11, 2007
To and including: Tuesday, January 29, 2008
It is 111 days from the start date to the end date, end date included
Also, here is something concerning the January 27 date (3333 days since my December 12, 1998 date):

On New Year's Day, 8P/Tuttle passed closest to Earth; a distance of 23.5 million miles (37.8 million kilometers). Although it is now slowly moving away from the Earth, it will continue to slowly approach the sun, passing closest to it on Jan. 27. Comets are most visible when they near the sun, which lights up material that boils off the comet.
I also noticed that the above article location includes my birth date and place of birth:
