is the time of mankind over? is the land  up-heaving onto earth?

as i once said last year Earthquakes are happing at an alarming rate , maybe we see it, maybe we don’t.

even if we turn a blind eye, it still gos on…thousands of miles below our feet, no its not hell tho it seems so, its our tectonic plates slamming around like two boxers in the ring..

after the devastation in japan,  yet again they get hit with another 7.4 such a large quake and its being called a “aftershock”

i believe earthquakes are warnings, the earth is trying to tell us something yet we turn and run for years..maybe if we listen things would be a little better..

Isn’t it odd that we are only ‘just learning’ to detect the signals from beneath our feet, the signals which tell animals, and some people, that an earthquake is about to occur?

im going to let you all think on this and just know….you might think that 2012 is craziness when in fact i believe something is coming to a head……

that then brings us to 2012. Not simply the end of the Mayan Long Count ‘calendar’,
but also a central focus of number codes in dozens of ancient myths that actually span
the planet. the 2012 ‘end date’ seemingly puts the capstone on our pyramid of changes
noticeable in these remaining days prior to the Winter Solstice of December 21, 2012.

Noting that the word ‘solstice’ meaning to ‘stand still’ actually describes a specific

astronomic event which is a 3/three day time in which the sun appears to rise in exactly
the same spot on the horizon, it is curious indeed that the Long Count of the Mayan,
actually meso-american cultures, would end on that day. It is also curious that the pope
Gregory of Gregorian calendar fame, would have the long count actually end at 11:11
on that day. Also curious is that the numeral reference sums to 11 (12-21-2012 = 11).
These curiosities arise due to the encoding of knowledge into number patterns. As an
instance, the number 11 at its base level of symbolism refers to the ‘sun
spot cycle’ which is 11 (and some fractional part) years in length.

Coincidentally (curious, eh?) the pyramids at the Giza plateau are in the exact center
of the planetary landmasses. This begs the question of why? As a marker perhaps as to
the center of rotation of the planet under such circumstances as a free floating crust?
Bearing in mind that there is no ‘down’ in space, when the crust of the earth rotates, its
position and point of rotation will be determined by gravity as determined by what
object in space is closest to the ‘center of mass’ of the earth, conveniently marked by
the Giza pyramids. The two candidates that we have to specifically affect our rotation
are the moon, and the sun. Though smaller, the moon is closest, and if it may be
a primary determinate for how these periodic crustal spins resolve themselves.

ThePowersThatBe both know about it, and are constantly telling you about it. If you
are American, pull out the 1/One dollar bill. This note from the private elitist organization
known as the federal reserve bank which is not part of your federal government, has no
reserves, and is not a bank, but *is* hugely tied to all kinds of secret societies, tells you every
time you handle its 1/one dollar note, that they know what is coming. Look to the back of the
bill, look under the pyramid with the strange symbol of the floating eye above it. There
you will see the words ‘novus ordo seclorum’, which actually translates as ‘new order
of the ages’. Note that it is wrong to think this means ‘new world order’, rather the
word ‘ages’ means ‘astrologic or zodiac ages’. And the pole and crustal shift is intimitely
involved with a new ordering of the zodiac ages. Such symbols about what
ThePowersThatBe actually do know are everywhere, and are a fascinating study in and
of themselves, but we simply don’t have the luxury of time for that any more.

we are going to talk a moment about Occam’s Razor…what the hell is Occam’s Razor? you might ask,

Occam’s razor is a logical principle attributed to the mediaeval philosopher William of Occam (or Ockham). The principle states that one should not make more assumptions than the minimum needed. This principle is often called the principle of parsimony. It underlies all scientific modelling and theory building. It admonishes us to choose from a set of otherwise equivalent models of a given phenomenon the simplest one…

i believe that this is greatly used to much… now let us switch this up for a moment shell we?

western Russia is a blaze at the moment from record breaking heat waves at over 100 for days, thick smog and red sky’s is pretty much all that can be seen…let us forget for a minute that we haven’t seen the stars over many areas for days, or the fact that we are now facing an heat wave that doesn’t just focus on the US but most the world.. ..this comes all on the wings of a massive solar storm in witch the sun sent  billions of billions of particles directly at earth…some states lost power and others brown outs, now  lets get to the point?….well we are being told that this is just a case of Occam’s Razor.. it was a solar storm and that is that, there is no more to the story and everything is fine, i happen to believe that all the small things all add up to make a bigger and brighter pitcher…okay maybe Occam’s Razor is good in theory but not in 98% of the time..and mostly not in this case. to tell us that there will not be any immediate and longterm effects is a lie i hope no one will believe without a fight…

remember we are  all given one of the greatest gifts and that my friends is free will, let us take back the dark and lonley night, let us find hope in the darkest of corners and let us believe the truth is out there…

Stars reveal carbon ‘spaceballs’
By Victoria Gill
Science reporter, BBC News

The football-shaped molecules are the largest molecules ever found in space

Scientists have detected the largest molecules ever seen in space, in a cloud of cosmic dust surrounding a distant star.

The football-shaped carbon molecules are known as buckyballs, and were only discovered on Earth 25 years ago when they were made in a laboratory.

These molecules are the “third type of carbon” – with the first two types being graphite and diamond.

The researchers report their findings in the journal Science.

This provides convincing evidence that the buckyball has… existed since time immemorial in the dark recesses of our galaxy”
Harry Kroto
Chemistry Nobel laureate

Buckyballs consist of 60 carbon atoms arranged in a sphere. The atoms are linked together in alternating patterns of hexagons and pentagons that, on the molecular scale, look exactly like a football.

They belong to a class of molecules called buckminsterfullerenes – named after the architect Richard Buckminster Fuller, who developed the geodesic dome design that they so closely resemble.

The research group, led by Jan Cami from the University of Western Ontario in Canada, made its discovery using Nasa’s Spitzer infrared telescope.

Professor Cami and his colleagues were not specifically looking for buckyballs, but spotted their unmistakable infrared “signature”.

“They oscillate and vibrate in lots of different ways, and in doing so they interact with infrared light at very specific wavelengths,” explained Professor Cami.

When the telescope detected emissions at those wavelengths, Professor Cami knew he was looking a signal from the largest molecules ever found in space.

“Some of my undergraduate students call me a world record holder,” he told BBC News. “But I don’t think there’s a record for that.”

The molecules were named after the developer of the geodesic dome

The signal came from a star in the southern hemisphere constellation of Ara, 6,500 light-years away.

Professor Cami said the discovery was perhaps not surprising, but was “very exciting”.

“Lots of scientists have expected that they would exist in space, because they are amongst the most stable and durable of materials,” he said.

“So once they’ve formed in space, would be very hard to destroy them.

“But this is clear evidence of an entirely new class of molecule existing there.”

The researchers now want to find out what fraction of the Universe’s carbon might be “locked up” in these spheres.

They also want to use the known properties of buckyballs to gain a better understanding of physical and chemical processes in space.

The discovery may even help shed light on other unexplained chemical signatures that have already been detected in cosmic dust.
Third way

Back on Earth, the discovery of buckyballs’ existence was also accidental. Researchers were attempting to simulate conditions in the atmospheres of ageing, carbon-rich giant stars, in which chains of carbon had been detected.

“The experiments were set up to make those long carbon chains, and then something unexpected came out – these soccer ball type molecules, which just looked weird,” said Professor Cami.

“And now it turns out that those conditions that were deliberately created in a laboratory actually occur in space too – we just had to look in the right place.”

Sir Harry Kroto, now at Florida State University in the US, shared the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the discovery of buckyballs.

He commented: “This most exciting breakthrough provides convincing evidence that the buckyball has, as I long suspected, existed since time immemorial in the dark recesses of our galaxy.

“It’s so beautiful that it’s been hiding from us and it took an experiment trying to uncover what was going on in stars to find it.”

He told BBC News: “All the carbon in your body came from star dust, so at one time some that carbon may have been in the form of buckyballs.”


Computers to translate world’s ‘lost’ languages after program deciphers ancient text

By Niall Firth

Scientists have used a computer program to decipher a written language that is more than three thousand years old.

The program automatically translated the ancient written language of Ugaritic within just a few hours.

Scientists hope the breakthrough could help them decipher the few ancient languages that they have been unable to translate so far.

Ugaritic was last used around 1200 B.C. in western Syria and consists of dots on clay tablets. It was first discovered in 1920 but was not deciphered until 1932.

The computer program was able to decipher many of the words that Ugaritic (pictured) has in common with Hebrew

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology told the program that the language was related to another known language, in this case Hebrew.

The system is then able to make assumptions about the way different words are formed and whether they consist of a prefix and a suffix, for example.
Etruscan – Repeated attempts to decipher this language have led little further than the numbers one to six.
The Rohonc Codex – Discovered in Hungary, it contains 10 times more symbols than any other known alphabet
Rongorongo – Discovered on Easter Island, scientists are not even sure if it is language
Linear A – An ancient Minoan script from Crete from around 1900-1800 BC
Vinca symbols – Believed to be the earliest ‘proto-language’ known to man, these symbols were found in Hungary in 1875. They date from around 4000 BC

Through repeated analysis, the program linked letters and words to map nearly all Ugaritic symbols to their Hebrew equivalents in a matter of hours.

The system looks for commonly used symbols in the two languages and gradually refines its mapping of the alphabet until it can go no further.

The Ugaritic alphabet has 30 letters, and the system correctly mapped 29 of them to their Hebrew counterparts.

Of the words that the two languages shared the program was able to correctly identify 60 per cent of them.

Science professor Regina Barzilay, who was leading the research, said: ‘Traditionally, decipherment has been viewed as a sort of scholarly detective game, and computers weren’t thought to be of much use.

‘Our aim is to bring to bear the full power of modern machine learning and statistics to this problem.’

Other researchers have expressed scepticism about the program and say that it is of little use because many of the undeciphered texts have no known ancestor to map against.

The program also assumes that the computer knows where one word begins and another ends, something which is not always the case

But Professor Barzilay thinks the system can overcome this hurdle by scanning multiple languages at once and taking contextual information into account

She said: ‘Each language has its own challenges. Most likely, a successful decipherment would require one to adjust the method for the peculiarities of a language.’

But she points out the decipherment of Ugaritic took years and relied on some happy coincidences — such as the discovery of an axe that had the word “axe” written on it in Ugaritic.

‘The output of our system would have made the process orders of magnitude shorter,’ she says.

The system could also improve the reliability of translation software like Google Translate, the researchers believe.

Ancient Alien Theory

According to ancient alien theorists, extraterrestrials with superior knowledge of science and engineering landed on Earth thousands of years ago, sharing their expertise with early civilizations and forever changing the course of human history. But how did this concept develop, and is there any evidence to support it?

Ancient alien theory grew out of the centuries-old idea that life exists on other planets, and that humans and extraterrestrials have crossed paths before. The theme of human-alien interaction was thrust into the spotlight in the 1960s, driven by a wave of UFO sightings and popular films like 2001: A Space Odyssey. The space program played no small part in this as well: If mankind could travel to other planets, why couldn’t extraterrestrials visit Earth?

In 1968, the Swiss author Erich von Däniken published Chariots of the Gods?, which became an immediate bestseller. In it, he put forth his hypothesis that, thousands of years ago, space travelers from other planets visited Earth, where they taught humans about technology and influenced ancient religions. He is regarded by many as the father of ancient alien theory, also known as the ancient astronaut theory.

Most ancient alien theorists, including von Däniken, point to two types of evidence to support their ideas. The first is ancient religious texts in which humans witness and interact with gods or other heavenly beings who descend from the sky—sometimes in vehicles resembling spaceships—and possess spectacular powers. The second is physical specimens such as artwork depicting alien-like figures and ancient architectural marvels like Stonehenge and the pyramids of Egypt.

If aliens visited Earth in the past, could they make an appearance in the future? For ancient alien theorists, the answer is a resounding yes. They believe that, by sharing their views with the world, they can help prepare future generations for the inevitable encounter that awaits them.
