Deep Solar Minimum

April 1, 2009: The sunspot cycle is behaving a little like the stock market. Just when you think it has hit bottom, it goes even lower. 2008 was a bear. There were no sunspots observed on 266 of the year's 366 days (73%). To find a year with more blank suns, you have to go all the way back to 1913, which had 311 spotless days: plot. Prompted by these numbers, some observers suggested that the solar cycle had hit bottom in 2008.

Maybe not. Sunspot counts for 2009 have dropped even lower. As of March 31st, there were no sunspots on 78 of the year's 90 days (87%). It adds up to one inescapable conclusion: "We're experiencing a very deep solar minimum," says solar physicist Dean Pesnell of the Goddard Space Flight Center. "This is the quietest sun we've seen in almost a century," agrees sunspot expert David Hathaway of the Marshall Space Flight Center.

Quiet suns come along every 11 years or so. It's a natural part of the sunspot cycle, discovered by German astronomer Heinrich Schwabe in the mid-1800s. Sunspots are planet-sized islands of magnetism on the surface of the sun; they are sources of solar flares, coronal mass ejections and intense UV radiation. Plotting sunspot counts, Schwabe saw that peaks of solar activity were always followed by valleys of relative calm—a clockwork pattern that has held true for more than 200 years. The current solar minimum is part of that pattern. In fact, it's right on time. "We're due for a bit of quiet—and here it is," says Pesnell. But is it supposed to be this quiet? In 2008, the sun set the following records: (read online article)...

"Since the Space Age began in the 1950s, solar activity has been generally high," notes Hathaway. "Five of the ten most intense solar cycles on record have occurred in the last 50 years. We're just not used to this kind of deep calm." Deep calm was fairly common a hundred years ago. The solar minima of 1901 and 1913, for instance, were even longer than the one we're experiencing now. To match those minima in terms of depth and longevity, the current minimum will have to last at least another year. In a way, the calm is exciting, says Pesnell. "For the first time in history, we're getting to see what a deep solar minimum is really like."

Pesnell believes sunspot counts will pick up again soon, "possibly by the end of the year," to be followed by a solar maximum of below-average intensity in 2012 or 2013. But like other forecasters, he knows he could be wrong. Bull or bear? Stay tuned for updates.

L'AQUILA, Italy (CNN) -- The youngest hadn't lived half a year. The oldest had lived nearly a hundred. The official government list of victims from this week's earthquake in central Italy reached 287 on Friday, as Italians held a mass state funeral to lay the victims to rest. The 6.3-magnitude quake Monday morning left about 30,000 people without their homes. Almost 20,000 of them are braving chilly nights in tents while about 11,000 others are staying in hotels, said Agostino Miozzo, a spokesman for the Italian Civil Protection Agency.


(NOTE: This earthquake occurred at 3:33 am local time at 13.334°E (333 relates to Jesus as I have shown in this paper many times) - the day after PALM Sunday.)

A few interesting things happened while we were away. I will list some of them:

Note time: 11:44 (post #932)


news.aol.ca/article/nasa-photos-show-giant-cosmic-hand/596345
(CNN) - New photographs released by NASA have captured images of a vast stellar formation resembling a human hand reaching across space.

The image, taken by NASA's space-based Chandra Observatory telescope, shows an X-ray nebula 150 light years across. It shows what appear to be ghostly blue fingers -- thumb and pinky clearly discernible from index, ring and middle digits -- reaching into a sparkling cloud of fiery red.

NASA says the display is caused by a young and powerful pulsar, known by the rather prosaic name of PSR B1509-58. "The pulsar is a rapidly spinning neutron star which is spewing energy out into the space around it to create complex and intriguing structures, including one that resembles a large cosmic hand," NASA says.

The space agency says B1509 -- created by a collapsed star -- is one of the most powerful electromaginetic generators in the Galaxy. The nebula is formed by a torrent of electrons and ions emitted by the 1,700-year-old phenomenon.

The finger-like structures are apparently caused by "energizing knots of material in a neighboring gas cloud," NASA says.

Another tsunami "clue"?

Today I had just made lunch and sat down in front of the television and turned it on.

I was flicking through the channels to see what was on and I came to a children's channel showing a cartoon called Rescue Heroes.

Normally I would not have stopped to watch this, but for some reason, today I did.

As I watched it, I realized it was about a giant tidal wave.

It was headed toward land and at the end of the show the Rescue Heroes saved the day by creating another tidal wave aimed at the incoming one. They did this by causing an explosion on a mountain by the shore which triggered a landslide which fell into the water creating a tsunami.

What I found interesting about this is that - not only was this show about a tsunami - but that this is the exact scenario which is supposed to cause the La Palma Cumbre Vieja tsunami. An earthquake is expected to cause the side of the Cumbre Vieja volcano to break off and slide down into the water causing the devasting tsunami.

(I also noticed that at the same time this program was on, the Space Channel was showing First WAVE.)

I read in today's newspaper that Dan Brown has another novel coming out September 15 entitled The Lost Symbol:

timestranscript.canadaeast.com/lifetimes/article/641707
At last, a new Dan Brown novel is coming.

Six years after the release of his mega-selling The Da Vinci Code, the Knopf Doubleday Publishing Group announced that Brown's The Lost Symbol, a thriller set during a 12-hour period and featuring Da Vinci Code symbolist Robert Langdon, will come out Sept. 15 in the United States and Canada.

"This novel has been a strange and wonderful journey," Brown said in a statement issued Monday by his publisher. "Weaving five years of research into the story's twelve-hour time frame was an exhilarating challenge. Robert Langdon's life clearly moves a lot faster than mine."

The first printing will be five million copies, Knopf Doubleday said yesterday, a modest number considering that The Da Vinci Code has sold more than 80 million worldwide and inspired a spin-off community of travel books, diet books, parodies and religious works.

A film version, starring Tom Hanks, came out in 2006 and made more than $700 million at the box office. Hanks will again be seen as Langdon when the adaptation of Brown's Angels & Demons debuts in May.


And speaking of that... When in May does Angels & Demons debut?

Another "small world" story...

This morning I received an email from a friend. (Our husbands used to work together in Happy Valley - Goose Bay about 8-9 years ago.) She and her husband are in Korea visiting their daughter who is working there. Last night they were out with their daughter and some of her friends. One of the friends said, "I know a couple guys whose dad also flies with the RCMP." Guess who these "guys" are... Tyler and Craig! This guy is friends with them from university and is now working over in Korea too. Korea to Prince George, BC to Halifax, NS... Yes, it is a small world indeed.

'Quiet Sun' baffling astronomers
Page last updated at 05:04 GMT, Tuesday, 21 April 2009 06:04 UK
By Pallab Ghosh, Science correspondent, BBC News


The Sun is the dimmest it has been for nearly a century.
There are no sunspots, very few solar flares - and our nearest star is the quietest it has been for a very long time. The observations are baffling astronomers, who are due to study new pictures of the Sun, taken from space, at the UK National Astronomy Meeting.

The Sun normally undergoes an 11-year cycle of activity. At its peak, it has a tumultuous boiling atmosphere that spits out flares and planet-sized chunks of super-hot gas. This is followed by a calmer period. Last year, it was expected that it would have been hotting up after a quiet spell. But instead it hit a 50-year low in solar wind pressure, a 55-year low in radio emissions, and a 100-year low in sunspot activity.

According to Prof Louise Hara of University College London, it is unclear why this is happening or when the Sun is likely to become more active again. "There's no sign of us coming out of it yet," she told BBC News. "At the moment, there are scientific papers coming out suggesting that we'll be going into a normal period of activity soon. "Others are suggesting we'll be going into another minimum period - this is a big scientific debate at the moment."

In the mid-17th Century, a quiet spell - known as the Maunder Minimum - lasted 70 years, and led to a "mini ice age". This has resulted in some people suggesting that a similar cooling might offset the impact of climate change. According to Prof Mike Lockwood of Southampton University, this view is too simplistic. "I wish the Sun was coming to our aid but, unfortunately, the data shows that is not the case," he said. Prof Lockwood was one of the first researchers to show that the Sun's activity has been gradually decreasing since 1985, yet overall global temperatures have continued to rise. "If you look carefully at the observations, it's pretty clear that the underlying level of the Sun peaked at about 1985 and what we are seeing is a continuation of a downward trend (in solar activity) that's been going on for a couple of decades. "If the Sun's dimming were to have a cooling effect, we'd have seen it by now."

'Middle ground'
Evidence from tree trunks and ice cores suggest that the Sun is calming down after an unusually high point in its activity. Professor Lockwood believes that as well as the Sun's 11-year cycle, there is an underlying solar oscillation lasting hundreds of years. He suggests that 1985 marked the "grand maximum" in this long-term cycle and the Maunder Minimum marked its low point. "We are re-entering the middle ground after a period which has seen the Sun in its top 10% of activity," said Professor Lockwood. "We would expect it to be more than 100 years before we get down to the levels of the Maunder Minimum." He added that the current slight dimming of the Sun was not going to reverse the rise in global temperatures caused by the burning of fossil fuels. "What we are seeing is consistent with a global temperature rise, not that the Sun is coming to our aid."

Data from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) shows global average temperatures have risen by about 0.7C since the beginning of the 20th Century. And the IPCC projects that the world will continue to warm, with temperatures expected to rise between 1.8C and 4C by the end of the century. No-one knows how the centuries-long waxing and waning of the Sun works. However, astronomers now have space telescopes studying the Sun in detail.

According to Prof Richard Harrison of the Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, Oxfordshire, this current quiet period gives astronomers a unique opportunity. "This is very exciting because as astronomers we've never seen anything like this before in our lifetimes," he said. "We have spacecraft up there to study the Sun in phenomenal detail. With these telescopes we can study this minimum of activity in a way that we could not have done so in the past."

Solar Storm 2012?

This latest striking design, situated on Rutlands Farm just outside the Stone Circle of Avebury village has an uncanny connection to some rather alarming news which has come to light about our own Sun. According to calculations a huge Solar Storm could hit the planet earth in only three years time. That's right 2012! Perhaps this is the message given in this new formation. Solar Storms are swarms of electrically charged subatomic particles from the Sun, which buffet the Earth causing problems for orbiting satellites, which have delicate electronics. On the ground we witness them as the Northern and Southern Lights. However a few times throughout history the Sun ejects enormous swarms, which can cause serious damage to our electrical power structure causing catastrophic harm to our modern-day global structures. Perhaps we need to not only keep an eye on the ground, but also to the heavens.

947) April 24, 2009

The number 42 has been popping up a lot lately. Nate and I have been citing occurrences and discussing it for the past couple of weeks. A few examples:
Today Nate said something which made me check out timeanddate.com and I found out that it will be EXACTLY 42 months from the Summer Solstice this year on June 21, 2009 to December 21, 2012.

timeanddate.com
Calculation results From date: Sunday, June 21, 2009
Added 42 months
Normalized to 3 years, 6 months Resulting date: Friday, December 21, 2012



42 months is 3 1/2 years - which is very significant in the timeline of End Time events.


I searched the Internet and found this description of what is to happen during this time period:

www.ucg.org/bible-faq/great-tribulation.htm
Frequently Asked Bible Questions

How long will the Great Tribulation mentioned in Bible prophecy last?

Jesus Christ prophesied a time of great trouble or tribulation to come in the end time. How long does the Bible say this tribulation will be? The "great tribulation" refers to the time of crisis at the close of the age of man. Jesus spoke of "great tribulation" in Matthew 24:21 and told the apostle John to write of it in Revelation 7:14.

Several events are prophesied to occur during the crucial last days:

Notice that a common time period is mentioned in connection with these events:

These are variations of the same period—3 1/2 years (not seven years, as commonly suggested by many today).

Note Wycliffe Commentary's notes on Daniel 12:7:

"The consummation is to take place when the three and one-half times (3 1/2 years; 1,260 days; 42 months) so frequently mentioned in Daniel's previous prophecies and in the Revelation are run out."

The idea of a seven-year tribulation is based on a single reference, Daniel 9:27, which tells of a covenant made "for one week" by one who will cut off sacrifices "in the middle of the week," an act that will herald the beginning of the crisis at the end. Each day in prophecy, goes the reasoning, represents a year and hence a week refers to a seven-year period.

We believe the weight of evidence supports that this verse refers to Christ. The Messiah was cut off in the midst of a week, or after 3 1/2 years of His earthly ministry, as well as on a Wednesday, the middle of a literal week.

Others believe this verse refers to the Antichrist. Even if this were a prophecy of the Antichrist, the crisis begins "in the middle," or after 3 1/2 years, leaving another 3 1/2 years remaining for the fulfillment of the close-of-the-age events mentioned above. So the period would be the same as prophesied in the above references to the main events of the end time.

Mexico swine flu has 'pandemic potential'
WHO holds emergency meeting
Saturday, April 25, 2009

The World Health Organization began an emergency meeting in Geneva on Saturday amid fears that Mexico's outbreak of swine flu may become a worldwide pandemic.

WHO director general Margaret Chan, who broke off a visit to Washington to return to the organization's headquarters in Switzerland, said the outbreak involves "an animal strain of the H1N1 virus, and it has pandemic potential." Chan said it's too early to say whether a pandemic will actually occur, but she referred to the outbreak as a "serious situation" that needed to be followed closely.

The new flu strain — combining genetic material typical of avian, swine and human viruses — has killed as many as 68 people among 1,004 suspected cases reported countrywide in Mexico. Tests confirm 20 people have died of the H1N1 virus, and 48 other deaths were probably due to the same strain.

The WHO has convened an expert panel to determine whether to issue any travel advisories or raise the global pandemic alert level. The organization uses six phases to categorize the risks of such an outbreak and its pandemic alert level is currently at Phase 3 (none or very limited human-to-human transmission). Phase 6 is "pandemic" — efficient and sustained human-to-human transmission of disease...

Once again May 15 seems to have passed without incident.

But... Could this be something ???

Last night I received an email from a reader friend who asked me if I was aware that there was a series of earthquakes currently happening in the Kodiak Island region.

I did not know about it so did a Google News search on 'Kodiak earthquake' to see what information I could find:




The first was an article about the earthquakes. The second caught my attention: TSUNAMI

I clicked on that link and found that on April 1, 1946 there had been a major earthquake in the Unimak Island area (near Kodiak Island) which had "generated one of the most destructive Pacific-wide tsunamis of the 20th century".


alaskareport.com/news39/x71229_tsunami_survivor.htm


www.drgeorgepc.com/Tsunami1946.html
The April 1, 1946 Earthquake and Tsunami in the Aleutian Islands
George Pararas-Carayannis

In the Hawaiian islands - was generated by a large earthquake near Unimak in the Aleutian chain of islands of Alaska. The earthquake occurred on April 1, 1946, at 12:29 GMT. Its epicenter was at 52.8° N, 163.5° W, and its focal depth was shallow at 25 km. Although the quake was initially assigned a Richter magnitude of 7.2, in later years, the energy it released was reevaluated and a Moment Magnitude (Mw) of 8.6 was assigned to this event.

This earthquake generated one of the most destructive Pacific-wide tsunamis of the 20th century. Near the generating area, at Unimak Island, huge tsunami waves reached 35.0 m (more than 100 feet) above sea level and destroyed completely the newly built, U.S. Coast Guard's Scotch Cap lighthouse. All 5 men of its crew were killed. The lighthouse was a steel-reinforced concrete structure and its base was at about 30 meters above sea level.

The tsunami continued on to the Hawaiian Islands reaching the north shore of Kauai island first, approximately 4.5 hours after the earthquake, and Hilo, 4.9 hours later. There had been no warning to Hawaii as the Tsunami Warning System had not been established, at that time. The tsunami was extremely damaging in all the islands, but it was particularly devastating in the Island of Hawaii. The town of Hilo on the island of Hawaii was pounded by a series of 6 to 7 large tsunami waves coming in at 15-20 minute intervals. The highest of these waves had a run up height of 8.1 meters above sea level. The damage was extensive. The waves completely destroyed Hilo's waterfront killing 159 people there. Every house on the main street facing Hilo Bay was ripped off its foundation and was carried across the street smashing against buildings on the other side. At Pololu Valley, on Hawaii, tsunami waves of over 12.0 m struck a school at Hawaii's Laupahoehoe Point, and killed a number of children and also destroyed a hospital. Altogether a total 165 people lost their lives from this tsunami. Damage to property was estimated to be over $26 million (1946 dollars).

In 1948, and as As a result of this tsunami, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center was established in Hawaii. This warning system was expanded in later years and became the headquarters of the International Pacific Warning System.


Checking the USGS site this morning, the string of Kodiak Island earthquakes started happening early yesterday morning - MAY 15 - at 9:38:15 AM at epicenter (17:38:15 UTC).

There were 11:


earthquake.usgs.gov/eqcenter/recenteqsww/Quakes/quakes_all.html


As of this morning, they are still continuing today:





Whether or not these are something that are leading up to a big earthquake and tsunami, I do not know, but perhaps it is something to keep an eye on.

Another thing that is very interesting, is that these earthquakes are occurring in the Kodiak Island region.

Kodiak is the name of a bear (which lives on Kodiak Island) - perhaps connecting to all the BEAR syncs I was getting at the same time as the TSUNAMI and MAY 15 syncs (review previous posts):

956) May 16, 2009

I was just doing some checking with timeanddate.com and found that from May 15, 2009 to June 21, 2009 is 888 hours.

As I talked about in post #947, June 21, 2009 is exactly 42 months before December 21, 2012, and 42 months - or 3 1/2 years - is a significant time period related to the timeline of End Time events.

The number 888 connects to JESUS.

From and including: Friday, May 15, 2009
To, but not including: Sunday, June 21, 2009

It is 37 days from the start date to the end date, but not including the end date
Or 1 month, 6 days excluding the end date

37 days can be converted to one of these units:
3,196,800 seconds
53,280 minutes
888 hours
5 weeks (rounded down)




What is rather interesting about this is that yesterday - on MAY 15 - I was doing some last-minute running around getting ready for Tyler's birthday and I stopped to buy a couple "2" candles for his 22nd birthday cake.

When I got out of the car, I noticed a sign on the car window that I parked beside. The EMMANUEL immediately caught my attention.

Now read the person's email address at the bottom of the sign.




Why this is interesting is that JESUS is also known as EMMANUEL:

MATTHEW 1:23
Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son,
and they shall call his name Emmanuel,
which being interpreted is, God with us.


So MAY 15 is not only 888 (JESUS) hours before June 21, but on that same day I see a "sign" (double meaning) about JESUS.




957) May 16, 2009

Today there were a lot of earthquakes in the Kodiak Island region, including a few larger ones - even a 5.9:

4.7 quake renews worries about destructive Newport-Inglewood fault
6:58 AM | May 18, 2009

Seismologists suspect that the magnitude-4.7 earthquake that shook a large stretch of Southern California on Sunday night erupted along the Newport-Inglewood fault, which experts have long feared would produce a devastating temblor.

"The initial focal mechanism is consistent with a slip on the Newport-Inglewood fault, which was the source of the damaging 1933 Long Beach earthquake," the U.S. Geological Survey said in a statement. "Two of the early aftershocks, however, are west of the Newport-Inglewood fault trend. Later aftershocks will help to define the fault plane that ruptured."

USGS officials are not sure whether Sunday's temblor occurred on the Newport-Inglewood but noted that a 1920 quake in the same area erupted on that fault line.

The quake hit at 8:39 p.m. and was centered near Lennox, a community between Inglewood and Hawthorne and east of Los Angeles International Airport. Lasting about 15 seconds, the temblor could be felt as far away as the high desert, Indio, Carpinteria and San Diego County. There were no reports of major damage or injuries.

The earthquake was "a bit deep," originating 8.4 miles below the surface, said U.S. Geological Survey seismologist Susan Hough. "That tends to make it less sharp -- less of a jerky, abrupt motion." As a result, most of the region felt the quake as a rolling motion, though some closer to the center may have felt a jolt.

The Newport-Inglewood fault, beginning just off the Orange County coast and extending 50 miles northwest through Long Beach, Inglewood and into West Los Angeles, is believed capable of generating a quake in the magnitude-7 range and has been the subject of dire quake scenarios because it runs directly under some of the most densely populated areas of Southern California.

Movement along the southern part of that fault caused the 1933 Long Beach quake, a 6.3 temblor centered off Newport Beach that killed 115 people, mainly in Long Beach and Compton. That was the second-largest number of fatalities in a California temblor in recorded history. Damage to school buildings caused by that quake led to major steps toward earthquake-resistant construction in the state.

A study by the Division of Mines and Geology found that a quake along the Newport-Inglewood fault could cause blockage of the Hollywood Freeway at the over-crossings for Hollywood and Sunset boulevards, reduction of the capacity of Los Angeles International Airport to 30% for two days, the indefinite loss of 34% of all hospital beds in Los Angeles and Orange counties, the shutdown of five power plants for three days and impediments in water supplies.

The USGS said in its statement that the Newport-Inglewood fault "was formerly thought to be capable of very large earthquakes. More recent research has shown that, instead, it is of less concern and only capable of up to about [magnitude] 7.4." Though there was little damage, Sunday's temblor was felt across a wide area...

No reports of injuries; 4.1 temblor centered 10 miles S.W. of downtown
updated 7:59 p.m. ET May 19, 2009


LOS ANGELES - A moderate earthquake rattled downtown Los Angeles on Tuesday, but there were no immediate reports of damage or injuries. The magnitude-4.1 temblor, which struck at 3:49 p.m., was centered 10 miles southwest of downtown, near Los Angeles International Airport, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

No damage has been reported and there has been no increase in emergency calls, city Fire spokesman Brian Humphrey said. Firefighters were driving through their districts, checking for any possible damage, he said.

The aftershock came two days after a magnitude-4.7 earthquake also centered near the airport.

Tuesday's quake was barely felt at LAX, but emergency workers were checking runways and other airport infrasturcture to make sure nothing was damaged, airport spokesman Tom Winfrey said."It was very slight but as a precaution we always do that check," he said. "It was lesser than ones I've felt here before" when nothing was damaged.

Still, the quake rattled nerves. "It was terrifying," said Esther Robertson, a cashier at a Burlington Coat Factory store near the epicenter in Hawthorne. "People started running out of the store."

960) May 23, 2009       "The Secret's Out" - Part II

Do you remember my post #899 in Chapter 18-16 about the 60 Minutes documentary on the band Coldplay?

One of the band's "Rules" is "ALWAYS KEEP MYSTERY"...

Today I was flicking through the channels and came upon the last end of a program on the MuchMusic channel about Coldplay entitled Coldplay: Then & Now.

("This program features key performances from the BBC archive which track the band's incredible rise to fame.")




What immediately caught my eye was what looked like a large number 11 tattooed on the back of Chris Martin's hand. This was obviously a symbol meant to represent something - but what? Could it indeed be an number 11 connecting to the 11:11 Phenomenon?

     




Then I noticed another on the front and on the side of his piano. The bars were not upright but sideways, so apparently they were not number 11s afterall.

     


So what are they and what do they represent?



Also... if you go back and read my post #947 about the number 42...

I noticed that Coldplay's drummer was wearing a shirt with the number 42 on it:




"ALWAYS KEEP MYSTERY."




NOTE #1:
May 26, 2009

Thanks to reader Justine for helping to solve this "11" mystery...

Chris Martin is involved with Oxfam and promoting Fair Trade and this symbol has to do with that. Perhaps it is an equal sign = symbolizing Equality and Fairness and Justice?

She sent me a link with a picture of Chris Martin wearing a t-shirt with this symbol on it: www.motherjones.com/media/2004/01/fair-trades-front-man


www.motherjones.com/files/resized/files/legacy/arts/qa/2004/01/martin200x165.300wide.248high.jpg


I did some more research and found a couple more pictures of Chris wearing a t-shirt with this symbol: www.maketradefair.com/en/index.php?file=26032002110550.htm

So... Apparently THAT mystery has been solved. Thanks, Justine!

Coincidentally... I wrote this post on Saturday and Justine said that her parents had just seen Coldplay in concert the night before on Friday.

It is also interesting that there is 'just' one letter difference between Justine and Justice.







Perhaps Coldplay's symbol does connect to the 11:11 Phenomenon in an indirect way?

Tsunami warnings issued as 7.1 magnitude quake hits off Honduras
Source: CBC News
Posted: 05/28/09 5:28AM


A tsunami watch was issued early Thursday as a powerful earthquake struck north of Honduras.

The 7.1 magnitude earthquake struck about 64 kilometres northeast of the popular Caribbean resort area, Roatan, in Islas de la Bahia, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The quake had a depth of about 10 km, according to the geological survey.

In Guatemala City, people ran into the streets as the quake struck at about 3:24 a.m. local time, according to The Associated Press. The quake has resulted in the Pacific Tsunami Warning centre issuing tsunami warnings for Honduras, Belize and Guatemala.

"A destructive widespread tsunami threat does not exist," the warning centre said in a release. "However, there is the possibility of a local tsunami that could affect coasts" located within 100 km of the epicentre. But other countries within the Caribbean Sea should be on alert, the centre said. The warning centre advised that any waves caused by the earthquake could begin arriving in the affected areas by about 8:50 a.m. local time.

Information regarding damages or injuries is not yet available.

Today Air France Flight 447, an A330 Airbus carrying 228 people, disappeared over the Atlantic Ocean on a flight from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil to Paris, France.

According to this CNN article, www.cnn.com/2009/WORLD/americas/06/02/brazil.france.plane.missing/index.html, it was supposed to be an 11 hour flight, and the pilot had 11,000 hours of flight time.

The flight was due to arrive in Paris in the 11:11 timeframe. Also, the flight duration was supposed to be 11:15, so very close to an 11:11 duration:

According to this timeline, Flight 447 sent automatic messages reporting electrical failure and loss of cabin pressure at 11:14 p.m.

Did the plane run into trouble at 11:11?

On Sunday my husband brought home a Saturday's Toronto Globe and Mail newspaper that he had picked up during his travels.

I didn't notice it until this morning when I was cleaning up. I almost put it in the pile of other newspapers to recycle when I thought to myself, perhaps he brought it home for a reason and I should just take a minute to glance through it to see if I see anything of interest.

Wow. I found a treasure...

(I asked my husband, "Did you see this, and if you did, why didn't you tell me about it?" He said that he had seen it and that was why he brought the paper home, but he forgot to mention it. Good thing I was inspired to glance through it.)

I looked up the Globe and Mail online and found the article:

Only three years left till Armageddon?
The ancient Mayan calendar ends on Dec. 21, 2012, prompting some to believe the End Time is nigh.
Elizabeth Renzetti
Saturday, Jun. 06, 2009 12:00AM EDT


At last month's Cannes Film Festival, pedestrians strolling along the seafront were startled one night by a thunderous roll of timpani and a fountain of water shooting up from the Mediterranean 10 metres into the air.

It was enough to make you jump out of your skin. It was enough to make you think that the world might be ending, especially after reading the giant green letters projected onto the spray of water: "2012," it said. "We have been warned."

The nonplussed French turned to each other and shrugged: 2012, qu'est-ce que c'est?

If they went home and did a bit of research, they would have discovered that 2012 is not just the title of an upcoming disaster movie, directed by The Day After Tomorrow's Roland Emmerich, but also an enormous, complicated network of apocalypse theories, encompassing hundreds of books, documentaries, films and websites, that lead to one conclusion: The world will end on Dec. 21, 2012.

It's true that when you're trapped in a mall in the days leading up to Christmas, the apocalypse may seem a preferable outcome, but why that date, the winter solstice three years from now? In short, it's because that is when the ancient Mayan calendar ends.

More precisely - because the Maya, the people who dominated southern Mexico and parts of Central America from around 2000 BC until Spanish colonization in the 17th century, were phenomenally precise with their math and astronomical observations - it's the last calculated date of one of their interlocking calendars, the Long Count, which begins on Aug. 11, 3113 BC and ends 13 baktun later, on Dec. 21, 2012. (A baktun, one of many Mayan units of time measurement, is slightly longer than 394 years.)

There are competing, but densely interwoven, theories from 2012-ologists about how the Earth will meet its fate - flood, earthquake, rain of fire - and even whether it will mean planetary death or just a brief snooze from which humankind will wake up, refreshed and enlightened, to the dawning of Aquarius.

What the theories have in common is a foot - or at least a sliver of toenail - in science.

One popular theory centres on a heretofore invisible planet called X, or Nibiru, whose orbit will swing it near Earth, causing catastrophic disruptions to our atmosphere.

Others mention a possible reversal of the magnetic poles (a rare occurrence, but within the realm of possibility). Still others talk about how there will be a "galactic alignment" of the Earth, sun and planets on Dec. 21, 2012.

Except, according to Ian O'Neill - solar physicist, producer for the Discovery Channel and devoted 2012 debunker - that happens every year.

The doomsayers "are trying to use science to sound trustworthy, but they're just spouting a lot of rubbish," he says.

What fascinated Mr. O'Neill when he began researching 2012 was how the theorists had taken fibres of history, archeology, theology and astronomy from different cultures, thrown in the occasional episode of near-death experience or crop-circle observation and shaped them into a cataclysmic whole.

This End Time was allegedly foretold not just by the Maya, but also in the I Ching, Hindu scriptures and the Bible (if you read it upside down and with squinting eyes).

The movement includes people who believe that the Maya were space travellers, carrying in their luggage mystical crystal skulls - a belief cannily exploited by the creators of The X-Files: The show's last episode tells of the ultimate alien invasion, which occurs, you guessed it, on Dec. 21, 2012.

These seemingly fringe beliefs have crept into the mainstream. Mr. O'Neill points out, with some despair, that the astronomy sites he writes for get vastly increased traffic when the subject is 2012 rather than, say, the Mars Rover or solar flares (he gets a fair amount of hate mail too).

It's a loopy brand, but a brand nonetheless, and as the date approaches, it's proving seductive for writers - even the ones who don't feel they'll have done their last laundry on Dec. 20, 2012.

Brian D'Amato has just published In the Courts of the Sun, a novel about a game-playing whiz who is transported from 2012 back to 600 AD to learn about ancient prophecies from the Maya.

While there is some post-millennial horror in the book (a dirty bomb at Walt Disney World and a virus-growing psychopath in Vancouver), Mr. D'Amato says he mainly intended to poke gentle fun at the conspiracy theorists.

"Most of that stuff is quite ridiculous - you know, the Earth is going to be swirled into the vortex, there's going to be a rain of red frogs, the poles are going to reverse," he says from his home in Michigan.

Then, after thinking about it for a minute, he adds, "On the other hand I'm not very optimistic about things in general. There's some very scary stuff out there."

The Twelve is a novel set to be published in September by California literary agent William Gladstone; like Mr. D'Amato's, it features the date 12/21/12 prominently on the cover.

Mr. Gladstone represents part of the movement that feels the Maya were prophesying a positive shift - "a galactic transformation that will bring joy," in his words.

"In spite of what some people say," he says, "I don't think we need to worry about doom and gloom."

Ah, but doom and gloom puts teenaged bums in seats, hence Roland Emmerich's 2012 (set for release in November), in which the world's great cultural centres and most of its population are destroyed while the government conducts a nefarious plan to save a special few.

The movie is accompanied by an insidious viral-marketing campaign, including co-star Woody Harrelson appearing on video sites as a modern-day Jeremiah preaching disaster and a fake website for the "Institute for Human Continuity" in which people can apply for the survival lottery.

Not entirely responsible, perhaps, but an effective marketing tool - and less costly than the son et lumičre show advertising the movie in Cannes.

Sony Pictures has millions of dollars wrapped up in one disaster egg, so why not play on real-life fears and fan the flames of paranoia?

Ian O'Neill thinks that the release of the movie will only increase interest in what was once a fringe phenomenon.

"I'm not sure I really understand the fascination," he says. "You can be in awe of the nature on this planet and not buy into conspiracy theories. The world is interesting enough already."

Elizabeth Renzetti is a member of The Globe and Mail's European bureau.


I decided to write to Ms. Renzetti and tell her about the 11:11 Phenomenon and how it is connected to the December 21, 2012 date. (See Chapter 13 - 11:11.)

I wonder... Will she investigate it further and perhaps even write a follow-up article?




968) June 11, 2009

Today something interesting happened...

Back in post #960 I talked about the band Coldplay and posted a picture with the drummer wearing a shirt with the number 42 on it.

This connected back to my post #947 where I talked about the number 42 including it being the "answer to the ultimate question" in the movie Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy.

This morning I got an email from my reader friend, Debbie, who told me that Coldplay has a new album out.

I decided to check it out and was surprised to see that one of the songs on this album is called 42:




So... That is why the drummer had 42 on his shirt. Because they have a song by that name.

I decided to look up the lyrics to this song to see the words gave any "clue" as to why they called this song 42 and if it had any connection to what I thought it might (God... and this 'experience' that is happening to so many).

Here are the lyrics: (www.metrolyrics.com/42-lyrics-coldplay.html)

42
Those who are dead are not dead
They’re just living in my head
And since I fell for that spell
I am living there as well

Time is so short and I’m sure
There must be something more

You thought you might be a ghost
You thought you might be a ghost
You didn’t get to heaven but you made it close
You didn’t get to heaven but you made it close


I guess that answers that question. (YES.)





But there was much more to be discovered...

As I scrolled down the above lyrics page, I saw that there was a section of 'User Comments', so I started reading them.

They started talking about how they believed the 42 was a reference to Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy. (See post #947.)

Then I learned something that I did not know, but I believe is an amazing connection:




I did not know that (Decimal) 42 was 101010 in Binary! That makes perfect sense! (I was quite disappointed in myself for not making that connection myself.)





If you go back and read my Chapter 13 - 11:11 you will see that this Binary connection is an important "clue". Here is the particular excerpt I am referring to:

As an example of attempting to figure out this mystery, following is an interesting exchange of ideas that occurred recently in a discussion group I belong to regarding this 11:11 phenomenon (the following table can be used for reference purposes):

*** This could also be a "clue" to a possible computer-generated, holographic reality. ***





Kind of an interesting "coincidence" - which if looked at as a "clue" - "confirming" this 11:11 Phenomenon and Binary code connection...

After I had captured the screen print showing the 42 - 101010 conversion, I was checking the size of the picture before I uploaded it, and I just happened to notice that I had created this picture at... 11:11:

An amazing 11:11... confirmation?


Today I sat down for a minute and turned on the tv. What's For Dinner was on so I started watching it. I had only been watching it for maybe a couple of minutes when all of a sudden - out of the blue - Mary Jo Eustace says to Ken Kostick, "Ooo... Ask me the time."

Because it was so out of the blue, it kind of startled me. I thought for a second and asked myself, "Now why did she say that?"

I looked up at the cable digital box above the tv just to see what time it actually was.

I was quite taken aback to see that it was 11:11.

Now realize that this was a taped program, and an old rerun at that, so who knows what time it actually was when Mary Jo said this to Ken.

But the timing of her saying this while I was watching it and it just happening to be 11:11 was surreal moment.

It was as if "Someone" wanted me to look at the clock at that exact moment and see that it was 11:11.

I wanted to document this 11:11 incident but I didn't think I would be able to grab my camera fast enough to get a picture while the time was still 11:11, but somehow I managed to. (Understand that the time displayed on the digital box comes directly from the cable company. I cannot set or change it.)











I wanted to be able to document this event just as it happened to me, so I checked the tv guide to see if the same show was on again later. I found it would be on again in an hour on another channel. I managed to get a picture and I also taped a video of it and uploaded it to YouTube.

This channel comes from Ontario. Unfortunately, the time displayed on my screen is local time (Atlantic time zone), so it is 12:11 instead of 11:11; however, for those people living in Ontario (Eastern time zone) they would have been watching this at 11:11 their time, just as it happened at 11:11 my time an hour earlier.

While watching the video, watch the time on the screen very closely. At EXACTLY (and I mean EXACTLY) 11:11, Mary Jo says, "Look at my new watch."







YouTube Video

www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZkBZLbuQIBA



Don't you think this is an amazing "confirmation" that 11:11 is indeed connected to TIME and perhaps, more specifically, to The End of Time? (Read Chapter 13 - 11:11.)

I do.





NOTE:
June 20, 2009


Other than the symbolism of the 11:11 to the "Ask me the time" and the "Look at my new watch" there was another amazing symbolism hidden in there that I missed, but observant reader friend Debbie noticed:




This show What's For Dinner? is a program about preparing food for a meal.

And in this particular episode, they are preparing LAMB.

So this is actually quite amazing... especially if you combine it with the symbolism of the 11:11 and The End of TIME...

JESUS is referred to in the Bible as the LAMB.

Now read this!

Revelation 19:7-9
7 Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him:
for the marriage of the Lamb is come,
and his wife hath made herself ready.

8 And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen,
clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints.

9 And he saith unto me, Write,
Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.
And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.

Speaking of 'The End of Time'...

I was just on my way to bed when I turned on the tv to watch a bit of the 10 o'clock news. I watched for awhile and then looked around to see what else was on.

When I came to the Discovery Channel I was surprised to see a program on about the Crystal Skulls. It had started at 9 and it was now after 10:30 so I had missed most of it, but I watched the last half hour and found it quite interesting. (I checked the Discovery Channel schedule and see that it is on again tomorrow so I will try to watch it all then, or at least tape it.)

In this last half hour of the show, they talked quite a bit about the Crystal Skulls' possible connection to the December 21, 2012 date.

(Go back and read my post #908 about the Crystal Skulls.)

http://www.cnn.com/2009/SHOWBIZ/Music/06/26/michael.jackson/index.html


It was a shock yesterday to watch the news unfold about Michael Jackson's cardiac arrest and being taken to the hospital and then his death.

It was like a 9/11 moment - a surreal moment when you knew what you were watching was true yet you still couldn't believe it - a 'Seeing Is NOT Believing' moment.

I grew up with Michael Jackson. He was just a couple of years older than me. Michael Jackson and Donny Osmond. The Jackson 5 and the Osmond Brothers.

I remember buying the magazine Tiger Beat I think it was called and adorning my bedroom walls with posters. Those were fun years...





When the news broke, right away something grabbed my attention:




12:21

I immediately thought of 12:21 connecting to 12/21 - December 21, 2012.

Not only that, but there was another major connection... the 911 call and its connection to Emergency...

If you go back and read my Chapter 13 - 11:11, under the topic Message of the Sphinx, you will read about a major discovery I made concerning this:

Already having noticed many parallels between the Egyptian texts and the Bible, I wondered if this "Last Time" could be the same as the "End Time" referred to in the Bible. God created the heavens and, as it states in the Bible, He created them as "signs" (Genesis 1:14, Daniel 6:27).

I wondered  ... if the "First Time" was when the constellation of Leo was rising above the eastern horizon at sunrise on the Vernal Equinox (Spring / Birth / The Beginning), could the "Last Time" be when the constellation of Leo was rising above the eastern horizon on the Winter Solstice (Winter / Death / The End)?

I decided to use my Astronomy computer program, Redshift 3, which allows me to plug in certain variables and view the sky from any location at any any time. My hypothesis was that, if I set the viewing location to Cairo and the direction facing east (as if I were the Sphinx) and the date to December 21, 2012 (the end of the Mayan Calendar AND the date of the Winter Solstice for that year AND the 11:11 date that I had previously calculated) that the constellation of Leo would be rising above the horizon. Was it? YES. And can you guess the time? 11:11 p.m. Local Time. ALSO, when I searched for the EXACT time of the Winter Solstice, it will be 11:11 a.m. Universal Time (or 1:11 p.m. Local Time). I think these "coincidences" (which I have already stated that there is "no such thing as" - they are "clues/dots" to be "followed/connected") are too amazing to ignore.




Not only does the Winter Solstice happen on that day at exactly 11:11 am Universal Time but "The Clock" - "TIME" - runs out at exactly 11:11 pm Pyramids/Sphinx time.

11:11 pm Pyramids/Sphinx time = 9:11 pm Universal time!

So the 911 call at 12:21 symbolizes - or confirms the warning about - December 21, 2012 at 9:11 pm UT - when TIME runs out... THE END of Time.





Another number that caught my attention was the 2:26, the confirmed time of Michael's death - THE END of Michael's TIME:




2:26 connects to 226. Day 226 is August 14 which is my birthday. Perhaps this confirms my warning concerning the above information?





I believe that many who "are in the know" realize the significance of Michael's death at this time, as another "sign" of THE END.

Here is one example...

Remember a few posts ago (#966) I talked about the Black Eyed Peas' new album THE END?




While reading some of the celebrities' comments about Michael's death, this one caught in particular my eye:



"I wouldn't be surprised if the world stopped spinning tomorrow."


Based on the title of their last album, I believe this is not just an off-handed remark, but a more serious and truer comment than anyone suspects.





After "this" happened to me back in 1998 and I caught on to it being THE major inspiration behind the music industry, I could see Michael Jackson as being "affected" by God as well.

I definitely do believe that Michael was "called" by GOD in much the same way that those who experience the 11:11 Phenomenon are (although I have found that many/most who experience this phenomenon do not believe - or do not want to believe - that it is GOD who is behind it).

I believe that Michael felt he was being called by GOD for a higher purpose and saw himself as a JESUS-type figure, surrounding himself with children as JESUS did, and whose purpose it was to help to bring Peace and to help Save/Heal The World.


       








From en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Jackson:
Jackson founded the "Heal the World Foundation" in 1992. The charity organization brought underprivileged children to Jackson's ranch, to go on theme park rides that Jackson had built on the property after he purchased it. The foundation also sent millions of dollars around the globe to help children threatened by war and disease.

The Dangerous World Tour began on June 27, 1992, and finished on November 11, 1993. Jackson performed to 3.5 million people in 67 concerts. All profits from the concerts went to the "Heal the World Foundation", raising millions of dollars in relief. He sold the broadcast rights to his Dangerous world tour to HBO for $20 million, a record-breaking deal that still stands.

Following the illness and death of Ryan White, Jackson helped draw public attention to HIV/AIDS, something that was still controversial at the time. He publicly pleaded with the Clinton Administration at Bill Clinton's Inaugural Gala to give more money to HIV/AIDS charities and research.

In a high-profile visit to Africa, Jackson visited several countries, among them Gabon and Egypt. His first stop to Gabon was greeted with a sizable reception of more than 100,000 people in "spiritual bedlam", some of them carrying signs that read, "Welcome Home Michael". In his trip to the Ivory Coast, Jackson was crowned "King Sani" by a tribal chief. He then thanked the dignitaries in French and English, signed official documents formalizing his kingship and sat on a golden throne while presiding over ceremonial dances.


I believe that Michael's intentions were good and that he was a very misunderstood person. I believe that it is hard enough to handle God's direct intervention in your life when you have your feet firmly planted on the ground and have a clear and rational mind, but when you grow up in the spotlight and in the public eye as Michael did, where "reality" is very strange to begin with, it must be even that much more difficult. I believe it was also this direct intervention that probably contributed to his often bizzare bahaviour.





One of Michael's songs that in particular connected to my own work and helped to express what I am trying to show is Man In The Mirror.

I referred to this song in my Chapter 7 - Meaning For The World back in early 1999 when I wrote that chapter, and even had it playing along with my Slideshow Presentation until it was removed by YouTube and MySpace for copyright violation.

Man In The Mirror
Written & Composed by Siedah Garrett & Glen Ballard
Recorded by Michael Jackson

I'm starting with the man in the mirror
I'm asking him to change his ways
No message could have been any clearer
If you wanna make the world a better place
Take a look at yourself and then make the change
You gotta get it right, while you got the time
'Cause when you close your heart
Then you close your mind!





Everyone is talking about what a major influence Michael Jackson was on the world.

I believe it is true as well, perhaps even moreso than people are aware.

Today I turned on the television to the Today Show and happened to catch a segment where Meredith Vieira was interviewing Al Malnik, the godfather of Prince Michael II Jackson (Jackson's third and youngest child). He was a very good friend of Michael's and his children are about the same ages as Michael's children and they often played together.

I decided to watch the interview and I heard something very interesting...

I said earlier, "I believe that Michael felt he was being called by GOD for a higher purpose..." and Al Malnik did say something to that effect which confirms my belief:


Meredith Vieira: "Did he ever talk to you about the lonliness he felt?"

Al Malnik: "He really felt that he had a GOD-GIVEN talent that he was required to share with the world.
And that's what he did and if part of that was for his personal lonliness to suffer, he was well-equipped and agreed to it."


I searched around the Internet and found the interview video online so you can hear it for yourself.

The part I am referring to is located from 2:16 - 2:47 on the video:

(Unfortunately, some of what he says is missing as the video seems to be somewhat damaged with break-up and laughter in the background.)

Do you remember what I wrote back in post #896 about my watching the Stargate movie Continuum and turning it on at the exact moment when Daniel Jackson tells himself (from another time-line) that he was right about the Pyramids and that he had to have more faith in himself?

Well the very same thing happened again today. I knew the Stargate Marathon was on today, so I turned on the television to see what was playing, and the movie Stargate Continuum was on...

At this exact same place again!


I will copy and paste that post #896 here:

896) January 31 & February 1, 2009

On January 31 I happened to come across a movie on tv that I have been wanting to see for a long time.

I am a very big fan of the series Stargate SG-1 but I have never seen the movie Continuum. Tonight it was on the Space Channel.




One moment that really stuck with me was when Daniel Jackson phoned himself (from another time-line) and told himself that he was right about the Pyramids and that he had to have more faith in himself.

This made me think of own discovery concerning the Pyramids...

Using a box concept to develop my 'Map of the Mind' (which, taken to its points of infinity, is also a map of God's Mind, and a map showing 'The Way'), and connecting that box concept to the constellation of Orion, and using Robert Bauval and Graham Hancock's theory of the stars of Orion's Belt correlating to the Giza Pyramids, and superimposing my map on the Giza Plateau, I have come up with the possible location of the Hall of Records. It was a very complicated process (as you can probably tell by my just trying to summarize it) and it required a series of "revelations" each built upon the previous, in order for me to finally discover the Hall of Records' possible location. (See Chapter 14 - Orion.)

The funny thing is, the very next morning when I turned on the television, the movie Stargate Continuum was playing on the Space Channel again, and at the precise moment when I turned it on, it was at exactly this part of the movie when Daniel Jackson phoned himself and told himself that he was right about the Pyramids and had to have more faith in himself.


Is "Someone" trying to tell me that I am right about the location of the Hall of Records???

STAPLES CENTER
1111 S. Figueroa St.
Los Angeles, CA 90015







I feel that it was amazingly appropriate that Michael Jackson's memorial service was held at an 1111 address.

Michael Jackson felt he was called for a higher purpose - to help Heal The World - and I believe that those who experience the 11:11 Phenomenon are also being called for this very same higher purpose.

It's a crying shame that many (most?) of those who are affected by this phenomenon don't feel the same way...

The Spiritual Life of Michael Jackson

and
www.allmichaeljackson.com/interviews/onlineaudiochat.html


"Michael: No matter what, the most powerful thing in the world is the human mind and prayer, and belief in yourself and confidence and perseverance. No matter how many times you do it, you do it again until it's right. And always believe in yourself. And not matter who's around you that is being negative or thrusting negative energy at you, totally block it off. Because whatever you believe, you become."

"Michael Jackson spoke these words in an Online Audio Chat sponsored by GetMusic.com and RollingStone.com on October 26, 2001 with Anthony DeCurtis as the moderator."

His views on the songwriting process:
"Michael: Well, the songwriting process is something very difficult to explain because it's very spiritual. It's, uh...You really have it in the hands of God, and it's as if it’s been written already - that's the real truth. As if it’s been written in its entirety before were born and you're just really the source through which the songs come. Really. Because there is...they just fall right into your lap in its entirety. You don't have to do much thinking about it. And I feel guilty having to put my name, sometimes, on the songs that I - I do write them - I compose them, I write them, I do the scoring, I do the lyrics, I do the melodies but still, it's a...it's a work of God."

Michael’s views on talent:
"You give of your talent, of your ability... the talent that was given you by the Heavens. That's why we're here, to bring a sense of escapism in time of need. And, uh, if you're a painter you paint; if you're a sculptor, you sculpt; if you're a writer, you write; if you're a songwriter, you give songs; if you're a dancer, you give dance. You give people some love and some... some bliss and some escapism, and to show that you truly care from the heart, and be there for them. Not just from a distance, but show you really care. You know, take the long mile and be there for them. And that's what I did, and many others who cared and helped. And it's an important thing."

His views on a spiritual energy:
"Anthony: Now Glenn from Toronto Canada asks, "Do you feel a special spiritual energy when you're performing; do you feel you are connected to a higher force? Cause this is what you make many feel when they see you live?" Michael: That's exactly what it is, you're connected to a higher source and you just go with the moment and you become one with, you know, the spirit. Not to sound religious or anything, but it's a very spiritual... very much like religion, and it's a God-given gift and you just go with it. And I'm honored to have been given it. And, uh, as fun to become one with the audience. It's a one-ness, you know?"
