    Ripples in Spacetime - Gravitational Waves

    Post  Carol on Thu Mar 10, 2011 12:06 am


    To understand the need for gravitational waves in the General Theory of Relativity, we should go back to the previous question:

    What would happen if the sun suddenly disappeared?

    QUOTE:

    To understand the need for gravitational waves in the General Theory of Relativity, we should go back to the previous question:

    What would happen if the sun suddenly disappeared?According to the General Theory of Relativity, the planets orbit the sun because they are taking the shortest path through the curved spacetime (recall the tennis ball).

    If the sun suddenly disappeared, the spacetime surrounding it would be changed. According to Einstein’s theory, the spacetime surrounding Mercury would be distorted before the spacetime surrounding Pluto, and Mercury would fly out of orbit first. These spacetime distortions travel as gravitational waves.

    It may help to think of gravitational waves as the ripples that form when you throw a rock into a pond. When the rock hits the water, the water immediately surrounding the rock is disturbed and the disturbance spreads out from there. Similarly, a change in the mass or speed of a heavy object disturbs the surrounding spacetime and this effect spreads out as gravitational waves.

    Before Einstein explained his theory of relativity, people thought the universe had a time dimension and a space dimension that were completely separate and did not influence one another. Einstein, however, changed all of that. He saw the world as a dynamic system where matter, space, and time interacted. Gravitational waves are intriguing because make the abstract idea of matter influencing spacetime detectable.

    What are Gravitational Waves?

    Predicted in Einstein's General Theory of Relativity, gravitational waves are disturbances in the curvature of spacetime caused by the motions of matter. Propagating at (or near) the speed of light, gravitational waves do not travel "through" spacetime as such -- the fabric of spacetime itself is oscillating. Though gravitational waves pass straight t hrough matter, their strength weakens proportionally to the distance traveled from the source. A gravitational wave arriving on Earth will alternately stretch and shrink distances, though on an incredibly small scale -- by a factor of for very strong sources. That's roughly equivalent to measuring a change the size of an atom in the distance from the Sun to Earth!
    No wonder these waves are so hard to detect.

    Are Gravitational Waves Real?

    The first test of Einstein's General Theory of Relativity (the bending of light by the gravity of a large mass, seen in a solar eclipse) was made by a team led by Sir Arthur Eddington, who became one of the strongest supporters of the new theory. But when it came to gravity wave s, Eddington was skeptical and reportedly commented, "Gravitational waves propagate at the speed of thought."

    Eddington was not the only skeptic. Many physicists thought the waves predicted by the theory were simply a mathematical artifact. Yet others continued to further develop and test the concept. By the 1960s, theorists had showed that if an object emits gravitational waves, its mass should decrease. Then, in the mid 1970s, American researchers observed a binary pulsar system (named PSR1913+16) that was thought to consist of two neutron stars orbiting each other closely and rapidly. Radio pulses from one of the stars showed that its orbital period decreases by 75 microseconds per year. In other words, the stars are spiralling in towards each other -- and by just the amount predicted if the system were losing energy by radiating gravity waves.

    Why Should We Care About Gravity Waves?

    Gravitational wave astronomy could expand our knowledge of the cosmos dramatically. For starters, gravitational waves, though weakening with distance, are thought to be unchanged by any material they pass through and, therefore, should carry signals unalt ered across the vast reaches of space. By comparison, electromagnetic radiation tends to be modified by intervening matter.
    Aside from demonstrating the existence of black holes and revealing a wealth of data on supernovae and neutron stars, gravitational wave observations could also provide an independent means of estimating cosmological distances and help further our understanding of how the universe came to be the way it looks today and of its ultimate fate. Gravitational waves might unveil phenomena never considered before. Nature is smarter than any theorist trying to imagine or calculate what might be out there!

    Sifting Through the Waves

    From supercomputer simulations performed at NCSA and other advanced computational facilities, relativity researchers expect different types of cosmic events to possess characteristic gravitational wave signatures.

    Consider the waves emitted by a single, distorted black hole, for example.

    Distorted Black Hole

    The remarkable thing about a black hole when simulated on a computer is that no matter how it forms or is perturbed, whether by infalling matter, by gravitional waves, or via a collision with another object (including a second black hole), it will "ring" with a unique frequency known as its natural mode of vibration. It's this unique wave signature that will allow scientists to know if they've really detected a black hole. But that's not all. The signal will tell them how big the black hole is and how fast it's spinning.

    Carol,
    Your link is as generally indoctrinated.

    To keep it simple, look at this link, and see how it is shown in acathedral floor.
    http://mathworld.wolfram.com/SmallStellatedDodecahedron.html

    Try to imagine a million of those in every atom.

    Try to imagine the universe been composed of nothing but them, and that they pack together perfectly( they need really special geometry to do that, but it's simpler to view that link)
    Then imagine a sound rushing about been refle4cted off the mirror like surfaces, and dependant upon which face is starts off on will then determine the course the sound takes, then think of your fractal pictures.


    Then try to imagine Yourself has been zillions of spinning sounds all encapsulated in an overal spinning field of sound, at will You can direct that field to transfer about on the zillions of faces that the universal substance provides, hence You can what is called move.
    You cannot move past a brick wall as it offers a resistance to Your fields ability to alter the powerfull field that composes the bricks, but if You could raise your field above that which empowers the bricks, then You could go through the wall.
    There is no difference between You and the wall, only the amount of TIME compressed in the wall is higher than into YOU.

    A diamond will have huge amount of time compressed into it, but it still meets the resistance of the wall, but the diamond will resist the wall trying to alter the diamond , if the diamond is rubbed along the wall( sparks may fly)

    The diamond doesn't exist, all is ONE, it is omni present.
    What exists is the local compression of time which we call a diamond.

    Nuclear explosions are the release of compressed time, and there is a lot of geometry involved with nuclear explosions, their position and timing in relationship to the sun and moon, and the so called explosion will open a time portal relative to the overall geometry out into universe, but You haven't heard that, it's secret.

    I was thinking of you Hobbit the whole time I was researching some of this data wondering what your spin would be on it. Basically, with the whole planet shaking and quaking earth is being bombarded with gravitational waves. This is happening now. Tom Brown Jr. talked about Grandfather's prophecy and 8 days of quaking which I also suspect is what's happening NOW. The quaking is only going to increase up until and possibly after the 21st. What I don't think is helping matters are HARRP signatures over various geological unstable areas at it is clear someone with their finger on the button is helping to generate some quakes around the globe. Dutch had video evidence of this on his various youtube clips.

    In addition, on elite did post he was heading for his underground bunker and he is gone. We also have an earth facing flare and the sun is also being affected by PX, cosmic gamma rays from the galactic core, the Oort Cloud that the solar system has entered and all types of space debris. Needless to say all is affected. I just hope folks are preparing and getting what food, water and medical supplies gathered along with camping gear and bug out bags just in case they suddenly have to relocate. Now may be a good time to take a vacation in safer geological zone.

    There is 10 days to go as the planets, PC, sun, moon, Jupiter, Saturn and earth come into alignment. Full moon on the 19th, a week from Saturday - 9 days away.

    This is a Super Full Spring moon which is the biggest full moon of the year with its closest approach to earth. The scientific name for such a phenomenon is the slightly less exciting “lunar perigee.”

    There are a number of dates going back almost 60 years, which coincide with floods in 1955, 1974, 1992 and 2011 – each 18-19 years apart. The super moon cycle for this year will be at its closest with likely further flooding on the way.

    "At the very least, this last date can be verified by science, with the Bureau of Meteorology confirming that on March 19th, the moon will be the closest it has been to earth in 18 years, at a distance of “just” 356,577km."

    Extreme Super Moon 2011 to cause destruction?:

    Nolle’s ‘Super Moon’ prediction:

    ‘The March 19 SuperMoon is by far the most significant storm and seismic indicator this month, but it’s not the only one. Lesser geocosmic shock windows also up the ante for unusually strong storms and moderate to severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes, subsequent tsunami, and volcanic eruptions). These lesser windows include March 1-7 (surrounding the new moon on the 4th), March 23-26 (bracketing the lunar south declination peak on the 25th), and from late on the 31st on into early April.’

    In the last 24 hours, according to the USGS, near the east of coast of Honshu, Japan, there’s been 22 recorded earthquakes, the largest quake a 7.2 which included a minor tsunami warning. The latest earthquake, a 6.0. The prior earthquake, which struck less than 30 minutes earlier, a 6.1. Twelve of the quakes measured over 5.0.

    On March 5th, a new fissure eruption on Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano and new eruptions at Fuego Volcano, Guatemala. On March 3rd, an explosion at Santa Maria Volcano in Guatemala. For more details on recent volcanic activity see Volcanolive.com.


    MARCH 2011 FORECAST
    There are two major themes I see at work in March. One is the Jupiter-Saturn opposition, exact on the 28th, but within a few degrees from mid-March on into middle April – a span extended by Mercury retrograding back into the configuration and Mars joining into it. (Speaking of the little planet’s retrograde, Mercury’s Max phase begins this month on the 23rd and carries through until May 7 – more about that later.) The other major theme is the SuperMoon full moon on the 19th. The closest full moon perigee of the year (at 356,577 km.), this will be a sight to see at sunset, when the hugely glorious full moon rises in the east.

    Of these two major cosmic factors, my sense is that the Jupiter-Saturn alignment will in the long run prove more significant. I’ve gone into the context of this in great detail in past forecasts, most recently in last month’s – which proved prophetic, if you read it word for word at the time. And if you didn’t, here it is again:

    As I write this, the people’s revolutions sweeping through the Middle East are the cable news networks’ latest excuse to hike their ad rates. (I’m told they have contracts with their advertisers, stipulating that rates go up whenever there’s a "Breaking News" banner in the broadcast.) It’s only breaking news if you haven’t read my 2011 World Forecast Highlights (published last year):

    Saturn-Uranus oppositions, for example, have heralded what I’ve called a harbinger of "panic in the markets, panic in the streets, people in need of rescue, just a whiff of revolution in the air". Per my forecasts, these things have been much in evidence these past couple years, from strikes and riots in the streets of Athens, Paris, London, Port-au-Prince and Tehran to debt crises and wild swings in equity markets worldwide; into precious metals and away from threatened bonds and currencies; to the unemployment and foreclosure crises here in the States. This is still far from over, there’s bound to be more public unrest on and off throughout 2011 . . .

    The timing of this particular "whiff of revolution in the air" is no surprise either. It coincides with the long – more about that in a moment – Sun-Mars conjunction, one of a number of Mars factors described in my 2011 annual forecast - again, published last year - as indicating a rash of "fires, clashes, crashes and explosions . . . a disruption in the oil and natural gas supply chain - which in turn can shock the financial markets and set investors and institutions in a mad dash for the exits."

    These uprisings of course express a noble and natural human yearning for self-determination. But there’s a grimmer undertone that’s unmistakable; namely, desperation – the "people in need of rescue" I’ve talked about for years now. It manifested on schedule per my forecast, and it has grown almost with each passing day. The current uprisings in the Middle East are due in no small part to governments cutting subsidies (for food and fuel) that they can ill afford, and their citizens can hardly afford to live without. This is the proverbial rock and a hard place.

    Looking back on that first Saturn-Uranus opposition of the 2008-2010 series, it’s clear in terms of astro-locality mapping that this whole "people in need of rescue" calamity had its roots in the US. The Saturn-Uranus opposition which heralded the collapse of the global financial situation was exact on November 4, 2008; and occurred with the opposition of these two planets in a T-Square configuration to Venus. Following the meridian lines for the opposition takes us right over Washington DC in the western world, and from the heart of China down through Indochina (pretty much right on Bangkok). There’s no more appropriate set of bookends for the economic quandary of the last several years than China and the US. (The Thai political crisis of 2008-2010 is an astro-locality footnote, in light of Bangkok falling right under the Saturn-Uranus opposition). Checking the map, it’s also clear that that the Venus meridian line for the T-Square grazed Tunisia – which in 2011 would become the locus for the current Middle East peoples’ revolution movement. (What started in Tunisia spread to Egypt and Yemen, and now threatens Saudi Arabia, Jordan etc.)

    Tunisia is also tapped by the horizon line for the Sun-Mars conjunction in the astro-locality map for that event. The Sun and Mars are within just a few degrees of exact alignment for an unusually long time: from January 22 through the exact conjunction on February 4 and on through February 22nd. The current uprising hasn’t even hit its stride yet, if this is any indication – and the immediate crisis won’t be over for weeks. Again, this comes as no surprise to anyone who read my 2011 World Forecast Highlights, where I wrote that "there are a number of Mars alignments in 2011 that up the ante for those ‘if it bleeds, it leads’ headlines. These include the February 4 Sun-Mars conjunction (a poisonous substance figures into one of these headlines) . . ."

    Those "people in need of rescue" in the Middle East are hardly alone. Aside from the usual suspects already mentioned (Greece, Haiti and Iran), don’t forget that some of the other trouble spots are the supposedly "wealthy powers" of Europe, including France and the UK (also already mentioned). Don’t forget another couple of global "powers" singled out by that first Saturn-Uranus opposition back in 2008; namely China and the US. If you don’t think that both are just like the Third World dictatorships in keeping a lid on civil unrest through subsidies of one kind of another, think again. For example, think about the huge, growing and many times-extended US unemployment benefits; and the fact that a record 43 million Americans (roughly one in seven) are surviving on food stamps – and never mind that the price of gasoline in the US is in fact subsidized by federal tax policy. (China’s managed economy is also engineered to keep people from taking to the streets, through subsidies of various kinds.)

    The long and the short of it is that the "whiff of revolution in the air" will not soon dissipate – and will expand rather than contract during the January 22-February 22 Sun-Mars alignment, along with the other Red Planet signatures (fires, crashes, clashes, explosions and general mayhem). Where next? Look at the areas under the Sun-Mars lines in the astro-locality map. The Sun-Mars meridian line crosses due south through western Greenland and eastern Canada, and touches Puerto Rico and effectively grazes Hispaniola in the Caribbean (poor Haiti!); Venezuela, Brazil, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina in South America; and in the eastern hemisphere, China, Indonesia and western Australia fall under the Sun-Mars antimeridian. The Sun-Mars horizon line arcs northeasterly through the Pacific and over Hawaii, Alaska and northern Canada, before turning southeasterly to cross south-central Greenland, Iceland, and the UK, France and Italy in Europe; crossing the Mediterranean over Sardinia on a trek across Africa that runs through Tunisia and Libya, into the Indian Ocean (after touching Chad, the Central African Republic, DR Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe and South Africa (close enough to count to Johannesburg).

    This is not to wax apocalyptic: commerce will go on, equities will resume their advances – until the next big flap, the debt crisis associated with the March-April Jupiter-Saturn opposition. Whatever human disturbances are afoot during this long Sun-Mars conjunction, they’re bound to be impacted for better or worse by the storm and seismic potential associated with the February 3 new moon and the March 18 SuperMoon alignment. (It’s hard to take to the barricades in the streets when there’s a storm going on or in the aftermath of a devastating earthquake, for example.)

    You saw it all last month, right down to the storm messing with the protests in Madison WI and the disruptions in the oil supply. And you’ve seen the commentators get in line too lately, pointing out how governments ending food and fuel subsidies helped trigger the recent round of revolutions. With the Jupiter-Saturn opposition in effect for most of this month and on into April, the next shoe is about to drop.

    With pundits, governments and central banks telling us lately that a global economic recovery has begun, it’s comforting to believe that things are indeed getting better. They are. Dump trillions of dollars worth of cash into the global financial system, and there’s bound to be an increase in economic activity – for a while. All would be well, if that money were real; if it was a genuine store of value and a reliable medium of exchange. It is neither. It’s not value at all. It’s debt. It’s all borrowed, and there comes a time when the line of credit gets cut off and the loans come due. The first – but certainly not the last – day of reckoning begins this year, under the aegis of the Jupiter-Saturn opposition component of the signature 2010 T-Square.

    The 2010-2011 Jupiter-Saturn opposition is a typical "three-peat" alignment, due to retrogrades of first Saturn, then Jupiter and then Saturn again. It’s the first Pisces-Virgo melding into Aries-Libra apparition of this opposition since the 1951-1952 triplet. Previous transitional triplets like this occurred in 1156-1157, 1097-1098 and 362-363 in the Common Era (CE), as well as 551-550 and 492-491 BCE (Before the Common Era). With only a half-dozen or so examples in 3,000 years, this particular transitional opposition of Jupiter and Saturn is fairly rare. But this barely scratches the surface when it comes to the significance of the current Jupiter-Saturn alignment: more on that in a moment.

    The opposition morphs from an initial alignment in Pisces-Virgo (respectively) on May 23, 2010, to a pair in Aries-Libra (one on August 16, 2010, the other on March 28, 2011). All three alignments have a strong Mars component: the first occurs during the Mars Max cycle, the latter two have Mars at one end or the other of the opposition (conjunct Saturn in the first case, opposing the Ringed Planet in the second). The Red Planet factor means that governments and central banks don’t have the luxury of working up solutions to economic and financial breakdowns at their leisure. Rather, there’s anger and the threat of violence in the mix: from civil unrest to terrorism to international tension and conflict.

    So get ready for the debt crises and the financial panics to raise their ugly heads again. The threat of a sovereign debt default in Europe or a bubble bursting in China can shake world markets as badly as a disruption in the oil and gas supply chain – and we might even get them all at once. And if it happens between mid- March and mid-April, it will be right on schedule. If you see the euro go to $1.41 just before it all hits the fan, think about shorting it. Look for a chance to take profits on equities going into a Jupiter-Saturn opposition correction, and then buy them back at a discount when the dust clears and the “bull rally” resumes until sometime this summer, when the Venus Max momentum is spent and the next profit-taking scenario will probably arise. Be sure to have some cash on the sidelines, and look for discounted precious metals when fear sends investors dumping gold and silver to raise cash in the vain hope of buying safety in the form of US securities. And if you want to short treasuries, you know you’ll win in the long run . . . but fighting the Fed is not for the faint of heart or the slow of hand.

    Markets, geopolitics and history aside, you can’t get there from here if you don’t get out of Mother Nature’s way. First and foremost, that means being mindful of the March 19 full moon 28° 48' Virgo. It’s arguably the year’s most extreme SuperMoon, for a couple of reasons: it’s the closest SuperMoon of the year, occurring within an hour of lunar perigee (the Moon’s closest approach to Earth): the Moon will look huge when it rises at sunset. And being so close to the vernal equinox, this SuperMoon occurs within hours of the moment the full moon crosses the celestial equator from north to south, just as the Sun crosses in the opposite direction. That makes this a major geophysical stress window, centered on the actual alignment date but in effect from the 16th through the 22nd. Of course you can expect the usual: a surge in extreme tides along the coasts, a rash of moderate-to-severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes, tsunami and volcanic eruptions), and most especially in this case a dramatic spike in powerful storms with heavy precipitation, damaging winds and extreme electrical activity. Floods are a big part of the picture in this case, although some of these will be dry electrical storms that spark fast-spreading wildfires.

    Being planetary in scale, there’s no place on our home planet that’s beyond the range of a SuperMoon, so it wouldn’t hurt to make ready wherever you are or plan to be during the March 16-22 SuperMoon risk window. That said, possible zones of special vulnerability may be indicated by astro-locality mapping this particular SuperMoon alignment. Among these are longitudinal meridian lines defining a swath of elevated risk running through North and Central America from Chicago at the eastern edge to Winnipeg and Mexico City on the west. This same longitudinal swath crosses the poles to sketch out a similar swath in Asia, through Siberia, eastern India, Bangladesh, Nepal, western China and Mongolia. In addition, horizon arcs sweep from New Zealand through the Pacific across to the Russian side of the Bering Strait, across Greenland and Iceland, and down through northern and western Europe and west Africa.

    The March 19 SuperMoon is by far the most significant storm and seismic indicator this month, but it’s not the only one. Lesser geocosmic shock windows also up the ante for unusually strong storms and moderate to severe seismic activity (including magnitude 5+ earthquakes, subsequent tsunami, and volcanic eruptions). These lesser windows include March 1-7 (surrounding the new moon on the 4th), March 23-26 (bracketing the lunar south declination peak on the 25th), and from late on the 31st on into early April.

    Also late in March comes the start of the next Mercury Max cycle. It begins with evening start Mercury’s March 23 greatest elongation east of the Sun, initiating a Mercury Max cycle which includes the March 30-April 23 retrograde and the April 9 inferior conjunction, and concludes with morning star Mercury’s May 7 western elongation maximum.

    Being closest to the Sun, Mercury goes between Earth and Sun more than any other planet; several times a year in fact, including the infamous Mercury retrogrades of astrological legend. While most astrologers pay a fair amount of attention to Mercury's retrograde, few realize that it's only a part of the more fundamental intersolar phase in the orbital interaction between Mercury and Earth, as they both orbit around the Sun.

    The Mercury Max phase begins when the little Sun-grazer reaches its maximum elongation east of the Sun - its evening star phase. This happens when Mercury has come 'round to the same side of the Sun as Planet Earth, and is relatively near us. The little planet is then pulling up to pass Earth on the inside track, as it were; catching up to us from behind and then passing between us and the Sun. Just as it catches up with us, Mercury passes directly between Earth and the Sun. This is Mercury's inferior conjunction with the Sun. After the inferior conjunction, Mercury continues pulling ahead of us until it reaches its greatest elongation west of the Sun (its morning star phase), at which point the little planet is headed toward the far side of our parent star. Between these two extremes, the greatest east and west elongations, comes the fabled Mercury retrograde period of astrological lore.

    It’s worth noting that with the inferior planets (those inside Earth’s orbit; namely Mercury and Venus), the closest approach to Earth coincides with the inferior (retrograde) conjunction with the Sun. With the superior planets (those outside Earth’s orbit), the closest approach to Earth coincides with the planet’s (retrograde) solar opposition. Clearly astrological doctrine regarding planetary retrogrades is completely unthinking. Rather than being weakened or debilitated in some way, a retrograde planet is in fact bigger and brighter in our sky, and closer to our home planet. Not unlike a SuperMoon, in that respect . . .

    Accordingly, Mercury Max is a peak Mercury experience, with the little planet shining brighter than usual as the evening star at the beginning of the intersolar phase. And then it gets really strange, when Mercury’s apparent motion through our sky slows, then comes to a standstill, and then reverses direction – the dreaded Mercury retrograde. After a few weeks, the reverse motion slows and stops, and then the little planet resumes its normal course of motion through our sky. Mercury remains brighter than usual following the end of its retrograde cycle, until it reaches maximum elongation west of the Sun (Mercury’s morning star phase) and then passes behind the solar plane as seen from Earth.

    What I have termed the Mercury Max cycle is a way of putting the Earth-Sun-Mercury relationship into a perspective that reflects real-sky, observational astronomy; the dynamics of our solar system as seen from our home planet perch. Look up in the sky over the indicated period and on the specified dates listed below, and you will see the phenomena described above. This perspective replaces the stilted, removed-from-reality practice of looking not at the sky, but at an ephemeris: first to see when Mercury comes to the degree at which it will later makes its direct station, and second when it reaches the degree at which it will later make its retrograde station; and then referring to the overlap between these two dates and the lesser included Mercury retrograde dates as the "shadow period" of the retrograde.

    For example, the shadow period for the March 30-April 23, 2011 Mercury retrograde would begin on March 17 (the day Mercury reaches the degree at which it goes direct on April 23) and end on May 11 (the day Mercury returns to the degree at which it went retrograde on March 30). But in terms of any organic, visible manifestation in the skies of our home planet, these ephemeris-derived dates have no relevance to the Earth-Sun-Mercury dynamic. It’s like left-brain versus right-brain thinking, linear versus holistic. One is a made-up abstraction looked up in a book, the other a reality that can be seen in the sky. The corresponding organically derived dates are March 23 (greatest eastern elongation) and May 7 (western elongation maximum). Occasionally the real Mercury Max beginning and ending dates will coincide with the artificial so-called shadow period start and stop dates. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. But the reality is there to see in the sky.

    Among the sort of things to be ready for during the above mentioned Mercury intersolar cycles: strikes and other disruptions affecting transportation and communication (e.g. postal, phone, mass transit, trucking, airline, shipping, dock and warehouse workers, teachers and all manner of media). Weather both terrestrial and solar (including geomagnetic storms) can play a part in the kind of breakdowns described here, but human effort (and sometimes malicious action) is a part of the mix as well. Power failures due to infrastructure breakdown and computer network disruptions caused by hacker attacks, software vulnerabilities and the like are also just a crossed wire or a keystroke away from a major mess at these times.

    If I had to pick a day to have a backup generator all fueled up and ready to go, a contingency plan in place in case the scheduled or expected didn't come to pass, a day to be especially sharp and steady and focused - it would be during one of these Mercury cycles. Note these dates; be ready with a fallback plan just in case. It's not so much that disaster is destined to strike when Mercury is in its intersolar phase. Rather, it's that everything pertaining to Mercury becomes crucial; and unless it's treated as such, then it goes awry. More and more, we live in a "just in time" world - and if the slightest delay holds up just one single thing, then a whole process screeches to a halt. Unfortunately, few people keep their eye on the ball with any consistency and diligence. And that's the reason these Mercury cycles tend to turn into Murphy's Law festivals. Practically speaking, this means that having a "just in time" inventory of essentials is risky business at times like this. Don't say I didn't warn you!

    In closing, here are a few odds and ends worth noting in March. One is the April 3 Mars-Uranus alignment, which will manifest starting the last few days of March as these two planets pull to within a few degrees of exact conjunction: fiery tempers, fiery crashes, explosive conflicts and, well, explosions. A good time to keep your guard up. And be aware of the Venus-Neptune alignment within a few degrees of exact throughout the last week of March. It’ll be even more invisible that the Mars-Uranus conjunction, since neither Uranus nor Neptune is your typical naked eye planet. (Uranus, sometimes – Neptune, never.) This is bound to be a dreamy time – maybe illusory, maybe beautiful, maybe deluded. Get a grip, or take your chances going with the flow, Lotus Eater. And watch for the Mercury-Jupiter conjunction in the western sky after sunset around the 15th: a sight to inspire bold schemes and all manner of derring-do, for sure.

    Beren,
    ENERGY....
    See if you can define that word????

    A good thing to think of is helium, it is said to be created by radiation.....another word.

    I will say that helium is an alteration in the time of the subsatance, and if a radioactive material comes near Your field of time, it will interfere with Your time field which is enabling Your cells to remember how and where they are.

    They say that helium has Alpha particles, I will say that helium is attracted to the outr zone of time around the time field of the planet.

    I will define energy as an alteration in time of whatever compressed time is been released from that material.
    FIRE is released time, and our ancient ancestors knew this, especially with their fire altars, You will find that they built such altars in fibonacci sequencing, and that fire was central to them contacting their ancestors, because a change of time occurs with fire.
    You will think of fire as energy.


    Someday after mastering the winds,
    The waves,
    The tides and gravity,
    We shall harness for god the energies of love,
    And then for the second time in the history of the world,
    Man will have discovered FIRE.
    Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

    We will have discovered TIME,

    dowsing

    Post  hobbit on Thu Mar 10, 2011 5:01 pm

    I spend too much time checking the lattice grid that I sense is of universe.
    briefly this consists of detectable straight sort of lines that are more akin to sheets as I can't find any ends to them or top or base to them, anyway.
    I find ,sort of flowing along these layers of a variable width of flows that can be followed to where they meet similer and spiral into and out of the planet.
    The layers consist of these flows going in exact opposite direction on top of each other.
    I have encountered something today that I haven't previously, these flows widths have gone off the scale, and the scale is how far apart I can hold out my arms trying to reach the edge of the flows, I can't reach the edge presently.

    This would equate imho to a vast increase of those flows, and there is definately a high tension feeling about me.

    it's hard to describe dowsing because it's so personal and unknown to most people, but all I can do is report what I detect, and something sure is happening.

    Lawless is saying same and I experienced this myself.
    Is this TIME as you describe it reorganizing itself ?

    TIME

    Post  hobbit on Fri Mar 11, 2011 3:15 pm

    TIME, Is the creative force.
    It enables creation in it's scalar duality, that replicates at all scales.
    It operates in a geometric substance that is none visable due to it been omni present .
    This substance does not move at all, time flows about in the geometry and organises in local flows that replicate relative to the unique way they start off as they spawn off the origonal universal point of origin....alpha and omega.

    To keep it simple and short , a consequence is that the local flows of galaxy we encounter have repeatable cyclic pathways where compression and decompression occurs, sort of breathing in/out.

    The relative balanced state of the duality of flows normally encountered result in expansion of creation, as the time flows implode into the geometric points called stars and planets.
    Nothing actually exists in the seperate manner We consider, everything is merely compressed time however it has locally organised.

    The most volatile zones of the spheres will be near or on the surface, where this creation occurs , thus as we experience this compression of time now, the consequences will be dramatic and dangerous around the surface, as surges of each half of the time flows will zip through this area in the geometry, the meandering manner of these flows can be explained, but they have been known in the past as dragons because of this meandering path and destructive abilities.

    Everything in creation is held in it's own local time field, and these fields compound and compound to make atoms, to make elements, to make YOU, to make the earth, to make the solar system, to make the galaxy.

    And all fields interact and affect all other fields.
    The big clue is the moon, as it's time field affects the water due to it affecting the time field of the earth, and the earths time field will affect the moons.
    All of this has been wrongly attributed to a consequence of inter field reactions called gravity.
    Gravity does not exist.

    We are thus now experiencing a galatic pinch point and the field interactions are passing down the scale.

    The duality cannot be over stressed in it's importance, it's the driver and enabler of creation, the earth quakes and volcanos are the overload points of each of these opposite flows of implosion and emmittance.

    The inrush flow has been called god and male, the outrush female .
    The earth quake is the local pinch point in geometry where a vast overload of inrush flows out locally in the geometry of the base substance of universe, which remember never moves, all of the countless zillions of time fields that compose the mass locally are sent off in a kind of magnetic attraction towards and away from this radiating overload of one half of time, the consequence is a local redistribution of mass we call movement, which is not movement but switching on such a minute scale that we cannot percieve of it other than as movement..

    Last night the upper incoming flows were almost violent in their
    detectable widths, at present as I write they are at a standstill, here locally in the middle of England.

    The concept of time flowing and not been linear is due to a veil created by the local time field of the planet, once You step outside this veil things look a little different, and hard to describe.

    this is fantastic hobbit. thanks so much for your input. much appreciate.

    TIME is not prana but atma.
    Prana is as energy, however creator is making the energy. He is not energy.
    The simplest would be this. There is no time in spirit world and it is like imagine huge area (i do not want to say it is space). From this huge area
    imagine a little place in the corner, which is as prison. It is all material substance here. This little prison in the corner has matter. All
    visible and not visible universes are there. Time exists there, but not in the spiritual world. When creator god "lies down" on causal ocean (water) to "sleep"
    the material world is manifested, this is why we can say that god is time, time appears in material world and all enchelada manifests there.
    Think of time as measurement of karma action. Think of time as measurement of distance measurement one atom move to another manifestation or simply said distance.
    Human understanding of time is human understanding, nothing else. It goes to the source back. We can start thinking of being on a side of earth in a sun, then we do not have day and night and our calendars. Right? All measurement of manifestation. I like Carol posted the fractial images just in vast of dimentions and at the same time harmony and order.
    Think about brahma, first entity in this day of creator. Our planet life is just quick moment or blink of an brahma eye right now making the manifesto appear and dissapear.
    Just look at the chart i posted under Vedic posts. Imagine the brahma's moment today related to us, his moment to our existance...



    Soul is immortal and we are in this play, divine play right this moment.

    Time for human being is as a Divine black box, what gathers together all existed and existing humans' and cosmic activities, actions, experiences
    as a basis for the next cycle of Creation... continuation of the Divine Play.
    creator is holding time in a womb as he is the time

    hope you forgive my grammar

    I am detecting the incoming flows again going off the scale, it's supressing down the outflowing from the planet, somethings got to go pop.

    Thanks Hobbit. When I was looking at the world map of quakes the areas that were active in the states were California, Alaska, Washington, Yellowstone, Arkansas in that order. There were a lot in California and Alaska. Hawaii also has been having a number of small quakes near Kilaeua.

    If not more going on in Asia I would suspect California as they just had a 5.4 earlier this morning down near Baha. I also suspect more plate activity. Wherever the sun is where the activity is likely to happen. It is 11:30 am here and early morning tomorrow in Japan. Hawaii could be next but the quakes in Japan over 5. have been continues all day so there is more continuing in that regions as well.
