Apocalypse. Doomsday. Armageddon. Ragnarok.
The end of an Age, foretold by the Mayan calendar.
For most of you reading this East of my island home, 12|21|12 has come and gone, and as most people have predicted, this was all much ado about nothing. The media driven, Y2K hysteria all over again. As I write this, 12|21|12 still not done yet here in Hawaii nei...
Like anyone else curious about where the whole 12|21|12 meme came from, I googled it awhile back. I found several hours worth of interesting reading. Some of the things I found were quite kooky and new age spirituality crap.
But I did find a few things that have given me pause for contemplation. I connected a few dots in my mind's eye, and have come to some interesting conclusions. Here's what I wrote about this almost one year ago: Climate Change and the Apocalypse Trifecta
I'm not the only one to have come to a similar conclusion. Check out Bill Powell from Apocalypse Cometh on his 12|21|12 post, The End of the World Came and Went Again:
That’s right now and today, the sun is almost perfectly smooth, few sunspots can be seen on it as of today. Contemporary scientists have observed enough over the past hundred years to know what that portends (the graphs are worth reading that article by themselves). It’s going to get cold, one of the reasons I live in Florida. One of the consequences of our sun getting colder is drought, a warm sun evaporates much more seawater causing clouds and rain, whereas a cold sun has the exact opposite effect, thus widespread drought throughout the world. It’s only going to get worse but it’s going to take a few years for the real consequences of the cooling sun to be seen and it’s going to have severe repercussions for the populations of this planet.
The elites know this and they’re both preparing for it and reveling in it. They own the scientists so they’ve had warning for a long time and have been preparing. The elites know that the earth is going to cool and cool dramatically, they think generationally, they have laid plans for themselves and their families to survive a cooling planet and they don’t care if any of us do other than the ones who might be able to serve their needs to ensure their survival.
Bill, we are in accordance on this. I've come to the exact same conclusion - the elites have been planning for the next ice age, and it is imminent.
Ice ages are an observable cycle - long era's of cold interspersed with brief periods of warming.
To quote Robert Felix:
- In 1976, scientists at Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory spearheaded a project called CLIMAP (Climate: Long-range Investigation Mapping and Prediction) to map the history of the oceans and climate.
- They discovered that ice ages begin or end, almost like clockwork, every 11,500 years. It's a dependable, predictable, natural cycle.
Pacemaker of the Ice Ages, they called it.
- They drew up a chart of the cycle (above).
- See the sharp peaks every 100,000 years or so? Each peak marks the abrupt end of a period of warmth similar to today's and the catastrophic beginning of a new ice age.
- See where we are today? (At the far right side of the chart?) We're at the tip of the highest peak ever, teetering on the knife-edge of disaster. We haven't been that high on the chart for half a million years.
- And do you see what happened--without exception--every time we got that high on the chart?
- Instantaneous ice age.
- The next ice age could begin any day.
Those with the knowledge of this cycle are using that knowledge to manipulate the mass of humanity to achieve their goals of power.
Just like the High Priest in the movie Apocalypto used his knowledge of the solar eclipse cycle to make the masses believe he had literal power over the heavens.
A monopoly on knowledge is one way to gain power over an ignorant populace.
Anyhow, I having previously written about the theory of the power elite who have been planning for the Apocalypse trifecta, what I wanted to cover here on 12|21|12, was the additional things I've read up on regarding the Mayan calendar and it's so called prophecy that today was supposed to be "the end of the world." It seems that the Mayan calendar was based on long term observation of our solar system's Galactic cycle.
As the earth revolves around the sun, the sun revolves around the Milky Way's Galactic center, moving up and down along the Galactic Plane. Where the solar system is on it's journey influences the solar activity, which in turn influences our climate by extension.
A paper published in The International Journal of Astrobiology, entitled The Galactic Cycle of Extinction (.pdf), states the following in it's abstract:
Global extinction and geological events have previously been linked with galactic events such as spiral arm crossings and galactic plane oscillation. The expectation that these are repeating predictable events has led to studies of periodicity in a wide set of biological, geological and climatic phenomena. Using data on carbon isotope excursions, large igneous provinces and impact craters, we identify three time zones of high geological activity which relate to the timings of the passage of the Solar System through the spiral arms.
This is the genesis of all the doomsday predictions based on the Mayan Calendar.
The Galactic Alignment is the alignment of the December solstice sun with the Galactic equator. This alignment occurs as a result of the precession of the equinoxes.
Precession is caused by the earth wobbling very slowly on its axis and shifts the position of the equinoxes and solstices one degree every 71.5 years. Because the sun is one-half of a degree wide, it will take the December solstice sun 36 years to precess through the Galactic equator (see diagram below).
The precise alignment of the solstice point (the precise center-point of the body of the sun as viewed from earth) with the Galactic equator was calculated to occur in 1998 (Jean Meeus, Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997).
Thus, the Galactic Alignment "zone" is 1998 +/- 18 years = 1980 - 2016. This is "era-2012."
This Galactic Alignment occurs only once every 26,000 years, and was what the ancient Maya were pointing to with the 2012 end-date of their Long Count calendar.
So the theory goes, the Mayans understood that when the solar system crossed through the Galactic plane, and more specifically, what is known as the Dark Rift sector of the Galactic Plane, The Shit Hit the Fan and for those unfortunate to live in that era, it was The End of the World As They Knew It.
In terms of Mayan astronomy and mythology, the Dark Rift feature (which the Maya called the Black Road or Xibalba be) lies along the galactic equator (the Milky Way) in the place where the December solstice sun will be in 2012. (More precisely, the December solstice sun will reach the southern terminus of the Dark Rift, where it touches the ecliptic in Sagittarius.)
Thus, in terms of Mayan mythology, we can also describe the Galactic Alignment of era-2012 as the alignment of the December solstice sun and the Dark Rift. This entire region is targeted by the cross formed by the Milky Way and the ecliptic between Sagittarius and Scorpio. This Cross was also recognized by the Maya, and was called the Crossroads or Sacred Tree.
This entire region is embraced by what astronomers call the 'nuclear bulge' of the Galactic Center—the center of our Milky Way galaxy.
If the Mayans associated the Dark Rift with TEOTWAWKI, some University of Kansas and University of Cal Berkley scientists have theorized it may actually be the extinction cycle happens when the solar system crosses through the Galactic Plane and is then "North" or above the Galactic Plane, and we get exposed to a Galactic "bow shock" which may have something to do with the historical record of cyclical climactic cataclysms.
Whether it's the Dark Rift, or the Galactic bow shock that occurs when our Solar system travels north of the Galactic plane, one thing is for certain: Ice ages and extinction events are evidenced in the geologic record, and they do occur on a repeating, cyclical basis.
Ice ages happen during periods of low solar activity...but what really kicks them off is cataclysmic geological events - more specifically, super volcanic eruptions. Things are going to get colder of course....hell, they already are.
But steadily falling, record low temperatures is not the actual start of the next ice age. As Robert Felix noted earlier, the climate records of the past all indicate the ice ages commenced very rapidly...almost instantaneously. What's the possible catalyst here?
Increased volcanism and geological tectonic shifting....perhaps influenced by gravitational forces that occur from our solar system crossing through the Dark Rift of the Galactic Plane?
More specifically, the eruption of one or more super volcanoes will probably be the type of event that triggers the next, near instantaneous ice age.When one of the super volcanoes blows and the ejected debris causes a nearly instant nuclear winter by blocking the sun's life giving rays to the planet's surface...it will start a global wide freezing cascade.
It's happened before.
Global Warming? A complete misdirection.
If you've spent anytime in political based debate forums on teh interwebz, you would know that one of the biggest points of contention is the right wings insistence that AGW is improbably because the climate is dependent on the Sun's activity...while the left completely discounts the sun and lays it all at the feet of man kinds behavior. That's the old thesis | antithesis of the Hegelian Dialect.
The dialectical synthesis is acceptance by both "sides" of left and right that the planet is warming...they only disagree on why.
By the time the general population of sheeple realize the ice age has commenced, it will be too late.
So the entire herd of brainwashed sheeple believes the planet is warming.
In the meantime, the elite have been building underground shelters, stocking seed vaults, and preparing for the coming ice age.
This is also most likely why they have developed the FEMA camp system, and the power structure of Executive Orders and have commenced regular Martial Law exercises by the military, national guard and police. When the time comes, and the next ice age truly kicks off, plant and animal life will die off rapidly, starvation will commence, and civil society will breakdown into chaos. The FEMA camps are not for herding political dissidents off to like the old Soviet Gulags.
It will be for the survivors in a post-apocalypse environment, waiting for the Government to save them.
Many conspiracy theories discuss a mass "culling" by an authoritarian police state that will essentially be a Nazi-styled Final Solution genocide action against the masses. Some argue that the culling has already begun.
Today’s eugenicists are more subtle. They’ve learned, through experience, that openly gassing entire populations doesn’t win over the hearts and minds of the public. So they’ve developed covert methods of accomplishing the same thing. These coverts methods include convincing people to eat genetically modified foods — which promote infertility — to drink fluoride, take vaccines, use synthetic chemicals, increase abortions and pursue other actions that either kill people outright or drastically reduce rates of reproduction.
The idea behind these is that, first off, the culling of the human race can now be accomplished without all the horrifying images of Nazi Germany’s gas chambers. While the Jews in World War II had to be forcibly lined up and herded into railroad cars, today’s eugenics victims willfully line up at pharmacies to be injected with flu vaccines containing stealth cancer viruses that accomplish the same thing: Death.
Death by vaccines is just slower and more covert than death by Zyklon B.
All of these actions, real or not, are still not making a large enough dent in the population numbers to reach their brazenly stated goal to:
MAINTAIN HUMANITY AT 500,000,000 IN PERFECT BALANCE WITH NATURE.
Nope. The "culling" will be achieved by letting nature run its course and watching the masses deliberately misled into worrying about global warming and not preparing for the real climate change threat.
