    Oftentimes I like to listen to Coast while on the net (multi-task) and was listening to John Petersen again this morning, which is very, very interesting. Anyone been following him and his information? He was also talking about cosmic energy increasing by 20 percent and looking at the convergence and something peaking. He tends to tie in a lot of threads in an understandable picture and did mention the 26 thousand year number. He also thinks there are some correlations between astrology and cosmic trends referring back to the Yugas and Hindu background data. He also talked about the "new Human" - who will we be after this transition.

    John L. Petersen
    Biography:

    John L. Petersen's professional involvements include long-range strategic and product planning and helping leadership design new approaches for dealing with the future. He has led national non-profit organizations; worked in sales; manufacturing; real estate development; and marketing and advertising, mostly for companies he founded. A graduate electrical engineer, he has also promoted rock concerts; produced conventions; and even worked as a disc jockey--among other things.

    Mr. Petersen's government and political experience include stints at the National War College, the Institute for National Security Studies, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, and the National Security Council staff at the White House. He was a naval flight officer in the U.S. Navy and Navy Reserve and is a decorated verteran of both the Vietnam and Persian Gulf wars. He has served in senior positions for a number of presidential political campaigns and was an elected delegate to the Democratic National Convention in 1984.

    John Petersen is considered by numerous influential leaders to be one of the most informed futurists in the country. He is the leading futurist who writes and thinks about high impact surprises--wild cards--that are global in scope, potentially disruptive, and intrinsically out of control.

    In 1989 Petersen founded The Arlington Institute (TAI), a non-profit, future-oriented research institute. Arlington operates on the premise that effective thinking about the future is impossible without casting a very wide net. The think tank serves as a global agent for change by developing new concepts, processes and tools for anticipating the future and translating that knowledge into better present-day decisions. Using advanced information technology, a core group of bright thinkers and an international network of exceptionally curious people along with gaming events and simulations, modeling, scenario building, polling and analysis, Arlington helps equip leaders from many disciplines with tools and perspectives on probable futures.

    The Global Future
    Monday November 8, 2010

    Futurist John L. Petersen discussed the global implications of changes that will be occurring after 2012. Indicators are that we are on the verge of substantial change coming from a variety of areas-- "it seems to be a fundamental resetting or reconfiguration of the basis of how we all live on this planet and who we are," he mused. First hour guest, Sheldon Norberg talked about his work clearing houses of negative energy. People who die from suicides or traumatic situations sometimes leave vibrational energies or thought forms that can make a room feel very uncomfortable, he noted.
    Host: George Noory Future 'Wild Card' Scenarios Tuesday September 30, 2003

    "The world is changing," said futurist John L. Petersen (arlingtoninstitute.org) in his appearance on Tuesday night's show. "If we don't figure out how to deal with [our] problems in new ways, then they're going to run over the top of us," he cautioned. Petersen went on to discuss quantum computing, time travel, nanotechnology, rapid climate change, melting of the polar ice caps, and other possibilities that would vastly alter our daily experience. Despite the scenarios, our future doesn't have to be grim. Petersen believes, "If we learn how to adjust to and adapt to these kinds of things, it could precipitate a whole new kind of world--a whole new way of living." .
