Wow - I sure am glad they have this blog for us. It's just impossible to cover some questions in 140 characters. So I've put real discussions of issues here instead.
LoriSinger @HEYSAL What is your take on the galactical alignment of 2012?
Our galaxy is definitely moving into a galactic alignment. What this means is that our arm of the galaxy is moving into a parallel position with the center of the galaxy. The arms of the galaxy wave a bit and we will experience this alignment in 2012. What can we expect?
We will be directly in the path of cosmic wind from the nucleus of our galaxy when we are in alignment with it. The effects are not completely known, but we could experience some pretty intense magnetic upsets at the least. The damage that can actually be done to us, of course, will depend. We aren't protected from the sun's radiation by our magnetic field as some people believe - it's the atmosphere that protects us.
At the N. Pole where we would be most vunerable to radation there is little change from the amount of radiation that hits earth elsewhere. Were it the magnetic field that protects us, that would not be the case. You can liken radiation passing through the atmosphere to particles passing through 10 feet of cement. So the amount of damage a cosmic wind will cause, will be determined by the amount of radiation it contains. Hopefully, we will be able to withstand it. We may find our planet heating up, but our sun has been strangely inactive this sun cycle.
Cosmic wind might bring another problem - clouds of cosmic dust. Ever seen dust hit a flame?
Think of clouds of dust blowing across the sun. Holy cow. Hopefully there is enough disturbance in these clouds to keep them small so we only see flares rather than major combustion.
It was predicted that this sun cycle was going to be the strongest in recorded history -- politicians were hoping for it because it would have reinforced their "warming" propaganda and scared the average human silly. The fact that there is more ice at the N. pole right now than in the last 15 years is down played and even just not mentioned. Instead the areas of both poles that are actually warmer or melting are pointed to in an attempt to continue the idea of warming.
In actuality - those areas that we are hearing about are sitting on mantle plumes (molten lava pockets under the surface), some of which are errupting. Warming? LOL, yeah, molten lava tends to do that.
Lot of smoke and mirrors political con artistry going on to make us accept warming as a fact. The truth is - The number one greenhouse gas is evaporated water. C202 concentrations are result of warming, not the cause and much damage can be done to plants (and result to us) if you cut C202 concentrations during warming. Fatal mistake. And -- ever see what one night of freeze does to a crop field? With our population reaching 7 bil, we better damned well hope our crops don't freeze. We already have one billion people starving to death. Sooner or later people will catch on to the fact that when they already have 4 children starving to death, they really need to stop having kids. A few crop failures and it's not going to be money that stops people from eating.
The actual crisis we are facing is due to population numbers - we have gone beyond carrying capacity in many areas - not warming, but human damage destroying us.
Now as far as the Mayan "world end in 2012" aspect of the alignment -
Both the Mayan philosophies of religion and daily life were based on energy. Each day had a different energy quotent. Their normal calander which covered, I believe, 56 years (or close to it) wasn't long enough for them to figure out certain aspects of their actions so they built the longer calendar - the one purported to predict the end of the world in 2012. I have seen that they did predict a major transformation for 2012 - but see no evidence for the "end of the world".
IF they were still here today, I believe they would be working on the next calendar - that's what we do when calendars end.
What the new cycle will be is hard to say. Are we going to "ascend"? It is thought that the vibration of the earth is increasing - enough of an increase would change the material nature of the planet. No religion necessary - if everything is vibrating faster, everything will go and we aren't going to notice much change around us. The problem comes if we are not increasing our vibration as the planet is. Is this a possibilty? Who the hell knows.
Being over carrying capacity has done one thing for this planet - we are poisoning almost every inch of it. Our poisons and garbage actually change the nature of subtle earth energies. There is a grid of energy called Curlew lines. These lines are not visible to us but our animals sense them.
A dog or cat will not sleep on a Curlew line - I will never sleep anywhere my dog won't. Curlew lines are not the healthiest of energies for mammals, although some insects do very well around them. Furthering the equation is that our poisons change the resonance of these lines, which could very well effect our own resonance.
Back to the Mayans. It appears, from the fact that they disappeared without trace and, considering that homes with dinners half eaten on the tables were found, they did so rapidly as well. Did they "ascend"? Who knows. They might have found a means to create a group ethos that allowed them to resonate at a high enough frequency that they just litterally disappeared. It seems that is what they were working on - but I'm sure there would have been no way for them to know before the fact just how close they were to acheiving lift off. The complete details of their predicted transformation are not completely clear to me. A lot of speculation - I'm looking through as many validly translated documents as I can find - finding many writings that speculate far to wildly and not many REAL document translations online.
So what can we expect in 2012? Anything....including nothing. But it will be interesting to find out.
@jmkane - continued discussion about gold and crystals
Your Sergent's gold could have come from many states. You can find gold in 33 states - while a few states contain only traces, many states have large concentrations: California, Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, South Dakota, Georgia, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada for just a few...........
Crystals - Yes, Arkansas has an area (actually called Crystal Mt., I believe) which produces some very large excellent quality quartz crystals. Fine crystals can be found throughout a stretch of about 150 miles in that area of the Mts all the way to parts of Oklahoma. Most of the areas are privately owned now but there are some fee digs down there that are extremely popular and there are a few public lands remaining which a hunter can have some luck with.
Arkansas also is the home of Daimond Crater State Park - the only public diamond mine in the world. Many people are pulling some very valuable diamonds out of that place - many are fancy diamonds (diamonds that are colored rather than white/clear).
Washington has several areas for fine crystals also - and I will be going camping for a few days to find some within the next week. Very possibly tomorrow or the next day. Getting my gear together now, as a matter of fact.
For others reading this, I am reposting the link I tweeted you - it is to my August 2006 newsletter. I was able to interview the photographer that was enlisted to photograph the largest crystals found in the world. The photos he sent me are just phenomenal.
I myself have hunted for crystals, gemstones, gold and fossils in about 10 states and am hoping to add 2 states to that list very shortly: Arkansas and Utah. Economic collapse not fun here so I might have to put those on hold for a bit.
