Cosmic Influences and Earth Changes

I recently read a couple hundred pages of the Criminal History of Mankind by Colin Wilson, but have since grown weary of it, and have retired it to the may continue reading someday shelf.

Basically that book is about the psychology of criminality, but I would like to mention one thing of interest which the author briefly discusses as a sort of minor digression from that subject, pertaining to the topic of cosmic influences affecting or altering the brain chemistry and consciousness of life on earth. The author speculates that such cosmic influences may have historically been responsible for triggering sudden evolutionary leaps in consciousness, coinciding with golden ages of human creativity, and widespread cultural advances happening all over the world at the same time, seemingly in isolation from one another, in the areas of religion, philosophy, science, and the arts.

One of the most profound cosmic influences in particular, were those triggering major changes in the earth's magnetic field, for instance in that phenomenon known as a magnetic pole reversal. The fact is that pole reversals do happen, have happened, and will happen again. Every few thousand years, the magnetic poles of the earth switch places. The north pole becomes the south pole, and the south pole the north pole. It will be accompanied by extreme earth changes, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, extreme changes in the weather, hotter summers, colder winters, excessive rains and floods, droughts and famines, and basically the whole entire planet will undergo a complete geographic and climatic face lift. It doesn't happen over night though, it's a gradual process, that gradually increases in speed and builds in momentum over time. And things will probably become extremely chaotic and unpredictable before these new arrangements and patterns settle into a more stable equilibrium.

But the one thing I found very interesting about this whole thing, is that it is said that during the times leading up to the pole reversal, the earth will experience an extreme elevation in temperature. It will be extremely hot, and extremely wet. Record heat waves, and record amounts of rain are the precursors of a pole shift. Is this what we are experiencing now? I have no idea. But they say this was the hottest summer ever on record. So who knows? Something is definitely up, I can tell you that much, and no I'm not referring to the sky, but I think there are big changes on the horizon. And I don't mean end of the world stuff, but you've seen for yourself how the government responded to Katrina. Well imagine if a disaster of that magnitude struck every city, or most major cities having high population densities, all at once. Can you imagine what would happen? I don't know where in the world a safe place would be, probably very few such places exist, but I don't feel secure that I am presently living in one of them. So if you are in the know, and are privy to such information, as to the whereabouts of the new world's Noah's Ark, let me know about okay, as I feel I would be an asset to the future.

Another interesting assertion worth exploring, is what exactly is meant by cosmic influences? What are they specifically, and how do they affect us? Well, the earth is a giant magnet, and all the lifeforms on this planet, including human beings, are of a magnetic nature; we each generate a magnetic field and are influenced by other magnetic fields. And all the celestial bodies, our sun (including all the sun spot, solar flare activity), the moon, the planets, and all the stars are magnetic. The larger the body the larger the magnetic field, and all these magnetic fields influence our planet, and also influence each and every one of us, subtly, but assuredly. As I mentioned recently in an earlier post, not only is our planet spinning on its axis while orbiting around the sun, we are also orbiting with the sun along with the rest of our solar system, around the center of the milky way galaxy.

Every 2000 years or so, we pass through a different constellation of the zodiac. It takes about 24,000 years or so to pass through all 12 signs, also known as the precession of the equinoxes. We are presently in the sign of Pisces, which you could say began around the time of Jesus (Pisces the fish, Jesus fish; See: Zeitgeist the Movie Part 1 for reference) and entering the sign of Aquarius. You've heard of the age of Aquarius, right? This is not just some new age speculation, but is based on an astronomical fact. It corresponds to the actual fact that our planet is literally moving through the galaxy and will physically be passing through the star constellation of Aquarius. And you could conjecture that being in different regions of the milky way galaxy, may affect the magnetic field of the earth in different ways. They say that at the center of the milky way galaxy there is a massive black hole. Some people say that at or around December 21, 2012 we will be dangerously close to that black hole, which may among other things trigger a pole reversal. And that not only will such an event trigger widespread earth changes, it will also trigger widespread changes in our brain chemistry and consciousness.

Whether or not this is really going to happen any time soon, on or near December 21, 2012, I really couldn't tell you. But the fact is that the phenomenon of pole reversals is not an idle speculation, is not new age end times paranoia, it is an established scientific fact. What is speculation though, is exactly when the next one will occur, exactly what will happen, and whether or not it will in fact usher in an expansion of consciousness, and a new age of Aquarius, as it pertains to our planet literally entering the constellation of Aquarius.

Personal Reading Inventory August 2010

I'm taking a temporary break for awhile from my studies of imperialism and the globalist agenda. It's been kind of burning me out, there's only so much I can take reading about all the CI@'s and the Pent@gon's dirty little secrets, such as complicity in drug trafficking, training terrorists, the intentional sabotage and destruction of self-sufficient local communities and economies, and the assassination of anyone standing in the way of their globalist agenda. It's really depressing stuff. Especially when you see that most of what you've been taught in school and see on television has been a lie.

The whole thing is very tiring, all the negativity, the evil, the corruption, the injustice. It needs to be known, but you've got to counteract it with something positive, something life affirming, something that gives us hope, real hope that can be practically implemented. Not with violence though, that is the worst thing in the world, that just fuels the seeds of your own destruction. But rather it takes a profound shift in consciousness, a global reawakening, and I think the key to that lies in the actual soil of the earth, in the outdoors, in changing our entire relationship to the natural world, reestablishing our roles as sacred stewards of the earth, and putting the health and harmony of natural ecosystems and the quality of life for all people at the center of all economic decision making processes.

I've been spending quite a bit of time, probably too much time, scouring the web for free ebooks to add to my personal collection, many obscure hard to find titles of a more counter cultural persuasion, specifically those that aren't available at my public library. I've got several of Chomsky's books saved as pdf files on a flash drive that I'd like delve more deeply into sometime, though i'd much rather have the hard copies, as there much easier on the eyes. And have quite a few of The Club of Rome's publications, State of the World publications, several psychology books, new science, along the lines of Fritjof Capra, The Tao of Physics, The Dancing Wu Wei Masters, The Holographic Universe, Buddhist texts, Yoga, Qi-Gong, health and nutrition, several books on symbolism, anthropology, philosophy, esoteric studies, freemasonry, theosophy, several of Rudolf Steiner's foundational books, organic gardening, bio-dynamic gardening.

I really want to learn all about the soil in a spiritual sense, grow some vegetables, study plants as an art form, as an eyes wide open meditation in movement, as a spiritual study of life. I can't have a garden where I'm currently living. I won't be living here too much longer, the house is for sale, but the housing market here is so bad, it could still be awhile. But I think I may experiment with growing a few potted vegetable plants, maybe tomatoes and chili peppers, on a very small scale, something that is somewhat portable, or wouldn't be too much of a loss to leave behind.

I'm kind of annoyed with myself that I am already in my 30's and still living my life like I'm in my early twenties. I look very young though, still, could easily pass for twenty, but the reality is that I'm not twenty, it's been over a decade since I've seen my early twenties. I must have been caught in a time warp though, because I haven't aged much at all. However, appearances aside, there is this expectation that by the time you're in your 30's you tend to be more established in your life, well, I must have really fucked up somewhere along the line, taken a turn for the worse, because established I am not. Oh well, can't let it get me down. The past is over, today is where it counts the most, never too late to realign yourself to where you'd like to be. Attitude really is everything. If you change your perception, you change your reality. Sacred geometry applied to your life.

I've got a whole lot of books to read, plus I'm also supposed to be seeking full-time employment. Something I dread, because it's so hot, and I'm having problems with my ear, but it has to be done, because I have to move, hopefully someplace cooler before 2012, and I do not presently have the money. But I also must read, so I'm taking a break from the seriously depressing business of studying imperialism, global justice, and corruption, and back to the esoteric studies for awhile, and hopefully some organic gardening too.

I'm thinking it's about time I give the two core texts of theosophy a try. Is it a waste of time mumble jumble, or something deeply insightful? Maybe, Maybe not. Only time will tell. I'd rather read it for myself, and decide for myself, rather then going by someone else's possibly flawed assessment. These are huge books, with a combined total of over 2000 pages. I may not read it all at once, but we'll see how it goes. Both are by Helena Blavatsky, credited as being the founder of the Theosophical Society, written in the late 1800's.
