"A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words and tomorrow speak what tomorrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said today. Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood. Is it so bad then to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh."—Ralph Waldo Emerson

In the past several weeks I have slipped into the role of a catastrophist. It all began when I read a story in a credible space journal about a monster explosion in outer space.

The blast was observed on Dec. 27, 2004 and it was announced months later by NASA as giving off as much energy in one–tenth of a second as the sun does in 100,000 years.

Even at a distance of 50,000 light–years, NASA reported that the explosion between the constellations Sagittarius and Scorpius was powerful enough to bounce off the moon and disturb Earth’s upper atmosphere. NASA also said that it interfered with many satellites and overloaded receptors on some spacecraft, but was blocked by the atmosphere and had little practical effect on Earth except to disrupt some very low–frequency radio transmissions.

That is, of course, if you believe NASA. After all, they sat on this story for months, and many people probably didn’t even think much of what happened because more people are concerned with what is in front of them instead of 50,000 light years away.

It is also a coincidence that the tsunami and earthquake happened in Southeast Asia just 44 hours before the explosion was detected.

The disconcerting part is the information that was given concerning how this event could have been extinction level.

If such a blast occurred within 10 light–years of Earth, it could destroy much of the ozone layer and cause mass extinction.

If anything like this were to occur closer to us, we would all go out at once: no cries, no screams, and no goodbyes. This huge explosion is said to have little or no real effect on the earth, yet coincidentally our earth suffered one of the worst catastrophes of all time hours before the stellar explosion was detected.

In the first article that I published in 2005 I did a bit of speculating.

"With the large earthquake that destroyed property and killed thousands and the resulting tsunamis I had to stop and ponder some of the stories of strange near earth activities that had taken place prior to the devastating 9.0 earthquake. The data that I had gathered is pointing to the possibility that this earthquake and resulting tsunami may be the result of a near earth impact of an asteroid or meteor."

On December 22nd, 2004 it was reported that scientists have been monitoring a series of strange energy blasts coming from some unknown source in space. These surges have been happening now for at least five years.

There have been a number of curious scientists who are seeing that the bombardments of these surges are happening at the poles. These cosmic surges may be responsible for changes in weather patterns and also Scientists are not ruling out the possibility that massive extraterrestrial bodies that are moving towards the earth are causing these surges!

Some of the world’s top scientists are beginning to see an astrophysical correlation between these cosmic ray blasts to our planet and an ever increasing number of global events relating to atmospheric explosions of inbound meteors, such as those that were reported Indonesia just prior to the earthquake!

The question needs to be asked, Was the earth hit by a fairly large meteor and did it trigger the massive earthquake that has now devastated Southeast Asia? Was the impact enough to change the rotation of the earth and cause it to ring like a bell?

It seems that circumstantial evidence points to the possibility."–Apocalypse Tao Published January 2005

I admit that I was wrong about a large asteroid. The circumstantial evidence pointed to the possibility. However, I did not count on the possibility that we were hit by a super gravitic wave, because I did not know what the source for this wave would be.

Now the picture becomes clearer and we can all go to bed knowing that the big rocks from space are not responsible. According to NASA we can also go to bed knowing that the galaxy is safe and an explosion that big and that far away is not going to affect us here on earth.

In my experience this is not exactly the case.

Now I know that every scientist will call me a crank, and that is okay because I deal in coincidence and interesting data that sometimes puts me right on track. My record speaks for itself, and while I can’t be right all the time, I can show that my mind and my speculations are in the right place.

I admit that I read into the data and make interpretations that will immediately be laughed at because it goes against everything science has taught us. This type of interpretation is called Eisogesis.

The word illustrates the idea that one may "read into" a passage of doctrine or dogma, or even agreed upon reality something that isn’t there or is determined to not be there.

So if I declared on my radio show that the explosion that happened 50,000 light years away had a profound effect on the earth and NASA says that it doesn’t, then I have somehow read into or otherwise speculated on something that they have determined is not at all truth.

If I point out similarities in an explosion of this magnitude and similar cataclysmic events in history that may have no connection at all but are relevant because of their historical value, I can be accused of over–allegorizing and therefore according to my critics it harms my credibility as a journalist.

If I speculate after the announcement of the explosion that the gravitic wave can send with it huge meteors towards earth, and trigger volcanic eruptions and earthquakes in strange places, without any scientist to back up my claims, then I must be a lunatic.

If an astrologer such as Dena DeCastro comes on my show and claims that we must prepare for a turbulent ride through space in the next seven years or so because her charts say so, then it must all be pablum because science and religion tells us that astrology has no basis in fact.

If all of the things I say were going to happen start to happen, and it goes against everything NASA, science, and religion have programmed you into believing.

Is that still Eisogesis?

Is it a hard leap of faith to believe that if the earth’s tides are affected by the moon, other celestial events could affect the earth? Could there be a profound effect on the planet from some stellar explosion 50,000 light years away?

A passage from the Qabalah tells us that for every action on high there is an equal reaction below.

"All that which is found upon the surface of the earth has its spiritual counterpart also to be found on high—And there does not exist the smallest thing in this world which is not attached to something on high and is not found in dependence on it"–The Zohar

When the heavens were studied anciently, the first astronomers found a correlation between what was happening in the skies and the changing seasons, floods, earthquakes, tides, and volcanic eruptions.

The earlier astrologers saw the earth’s condition as a reflection of what was happening in the heavens. It was an immediate cause–and–effect conclusion which postulated that the heavens influenced changes on the planet.

It was after all, the place where the gods lived.

Astronomy eventually became an extension of astrology, and scientists began to sneer at the ancient wisdom and the idea that your fate remained up to the stars was dismissed as superstition.

However, it needs to be pointed out that the ancients had an uncanny knack for somehow building great cities and creating architecture that mimicked what has been seen in the heavens.

"If a star map is superimposed over the Earth with the pole star placed over the terrestrial North Pole, we have a celestial clock making one revolution daily. The noon point of that map (like Greenwich) is the Great Pyramid of Giza.

Thousands of years ago, Egypt was known as the Land of Khem. The Khema were a group of seven major stars (in the constellation of Taurus), known today as the Pleiades.

If the map is placed with the Khema over the Land of Khem (Egypt)–specifically, directly over the apex of the Great Pyramid– then Taurus falls over the Taurus Mountains of southern Turkey; Ursa Major, the Great Bear, rambles over Russia; the head of Draco the Dragon coils up over China; Orion (the warrior) over Iran/Iraq; Aries the Ram over Rome, and Capricorn (identified with the god Pan) falls over Panama, Panuco, and Mayapan (the old name of the Yucatan). Aquila the Eagle spans the United States. The analogies are obvious, and quite impressive. This is one of the clearest examples of the law of ’As Above, So Below.’" –– Beyond Prophecies & Predictions, Moira Timms

Ancient symbolism is also uncanny in its ability to somehow give us a hint of the end of cycles and the beginnings of new ones.

After the announcement of the explosion in space, and the so–called coincidence of an earthquake and tsunami in Southeast Asia happening at the same time, I was reminded of a image that somehow burst through to me and I had to share it with you.

It was a tarot card image that I remembered, and I couldn’t help but marvel at the coincidence and its meaning regarding the events of both the exploding star and the tsunami.

The 17th card in the Major Arcana is called the Star card. The card shows seven stars that are white and in the middle is a star that is a different color. This star is bigger than the others. This larger star could denote the idea of an exploding star in the center of seven stars. Below the celestial event is a woman who has balanced herself near a large body of water.

She takes water from the large body of water and then pours it on to the land.

The tarot card for me painted the picture of a celestial event in space where a large star explodes in the center of the galaxy. Below is the symbol of the Stella Maris, Isis–Meri, or the Star of the Sea. Isis–Meri, Stella Maris, and the Virgin Mary all are one and the same.

The seven stars also have meaning. They are allegedly symbolic of the seven leaders of the Elohim. The Elohim are the people who dwell in the heavens, and to most secret societies, the Elohim are the star people or the gods. They could also be the seven hosts that bow before the throne of God, or the seven great churches; it could also be the representation of the seven angels which all had tasks to do before the end of the age.

In the book of Revelation in the Bible, the seven stars are mentioned and many believe that they are perhaps the angels that rain down all sorts of calamities after the signal is given to proceed. The signal is a great power that is seen in the sky.

It is seen as a great dragon.

"And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God."

"The mystery of the seven stars which thou sawest in my right hand, and the seven golden candlesticks. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches: and the seven candlesticks which thou sawest are the seven churches."

"And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound. The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood.

The second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood; And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.

The third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters.

The fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.

The fifth angel gave warning, the sixth angel the second warning and the seventh gave the third warning."–The Book of Revelation and the story of the seven angels.

Coincidentally, there are also seven seals spoken of in the bible, and the seven bowls of the angels that are poured upon the earth.

All religions and traditional beliefs attach significance to particular numbers, such as one, three, four, seven, nine, twelve, thirty–three and forty.

The number seven has mystic meaning in many cultures, as illustrated by the seven heavens, The story of the seven sleepers, the combination of squares and triangles in the Egyptian pyramids, the seven days of the week and the seven– year tribulation period before the second coming of Christ.

I had also noticed that a Masonic symbol known as the Royal Arch depicts basically the same imagery. In the middle of the seven stars is the all Seeing Eye. In the Royal arch imagery we see that there is a comet that comes between the seven stars. It can be seen as the Messianic star or the great star that brings balance. The same image was seen in the movie Lord of the Rings.

It strikes the consciousness as illuminating imagery, which can be seen as Masonic even though the symbolism is ancient.

The imagery can be traced back to the Talisman of Orpheus.

When looked upon the talisman looks like a depiction of Christ, however the talisman is a representation of Osiris or Dionysus or in the literal Greek translation, Orpheus Bacchus. The amulet is important historically, because it pre–dates the Council of Nicaea, which saw the establishment of modern Christian doctrine under the auspices of the Emperor Constantine.

Above the crucifix is a crescent ’moon’ facing downwards, surrounded by a semi–circle of 7 stars.

The amulet itself is now lost, having disappeared from the Museum of Berlin in the Second World War.

The amulet depicts the great warning of the dark star, the nemesis, the winged planet and the emergence of the God man. Could this all be symbolism pointing to the existence of Planet X? Is this the stellar event that has been a cyclical part of or transformation?

Another interesting coincidence is that the so–called seven–year tribulation, which by the way is said to be non–scriptural and actually a form of eisogesis, could be happening in 2005.

This is another coincidence concerning the Mayan calculations and the year 2012, seven years from now. According to the Maya, the world undergoes cyclic destruction and creation. Each death and new age is launched by the death of numbered suns. The culture of the Maya mysteriously disappeared before the predicted death of the fourth sun in 1519. Following Cortez’s conquest of the post–Aztec Mayan empires, vast knowledge was lost when virtually all of the visual records were destroyed. What remained was the calendar that counted down the deaths of the suns.

There was a prophecy of the death of the sun of darkness and ignorance. This sun was to die or be darkened on July 11th, 1991. Upon the death of the fifth sun and birth of the sixth, the Mayan prophecy that was dated back to 755 A.D. stated that earth changes would take place when the sixth sun was in the sky. The prophecy also stated that during the time that the sixth sun reigned, there would be an arrival of the masters of the stars.

On July 11th, 1991 there was a total eclipse of the sun lasting 6 minutes and 45 seconds. At this time remarkable event took place. Witnesses videotaped a large UFO in the sky that was visible for 23 minutes.

Now, the question is, if our sixth sun is in the sky now, when will it die according to the Mayans?

In 2012, seven years from now, our seventh sun will be a dark star. It is in this time we go from the age of Pisces to the age of the Aquarius, the Water Bearer.

Seven years from now we are also facing the 28,000–year axial tilt phenomenon known as the Precession of the Equinox.

Many claim that this will bring a major cataclysm to the planet.

I need to remind you that this is all connecting of some fuzzy dots and the beliefs are all subjective.

It is all just something to think about.

Even if it is uncomfortable.

I have been writing about the catastrophic cycles and have pointed out on numerous occasions that this explosion in space is a significant marker when you consider all of the coincidences that it is producing.

If we are to believe the coincidences that I have pointed out then you have to prepare yourself for some interesting activity form space. You may see more earthquakes in diverse areas, volcanic eruptions, and large fireballs coming down from the sky.

No matter what science or NASA tells you, no matter what you are told concerning UFO’s and prophecy, you have to understand that it can’t be taken as gospel until you make your own individual discovery.

Science and religion have always stalled the truth in order to further some agenda. Governments have also learned how to use information and misinformation to keep the public from figuring out what is really happening in the world.

In the year 1772 a huge fireball was seen shooting across the sky over Luce France. The fiery rock hit the ground and caused considerable damage. An investigation ensued by the Academie Francaise. The respected chemist Antoine Lavoisier said there are no such things as rocks falling from the sky because there are no rocks in the sky.

The result of his statements was that museums in 18th century Europe threw out all of their meteorite specimens because they were humiliating reminders of superstition and mythology.

The strength of Lavoisier’s conviction was such that it helped to stop the study of meteorites for over a quarter of a century.

It seems that humanity remains the same.

In the 18th century one scientist was able to stop the investigation of meteorites because he had enough power and influence to change the way the critical mass thinks.

Of course there are many that will say that people in 18th century France weren’t as educated and therefore could easily be misled.

In our sophisticated society, we somehow think that we are immune to being misled by powerful people whom we complacently believe have our best interests at heart. We have taken for granted that certain things are true because we have not been taught differently nor have we been given another story to ponder.

We have been taught that everything is black and white, right or wrong, good and evil, and that to think otherwise is not healthy. We have science and religion telling us different things and there is also politics trying to coerce us into giving our elected officials the same treatment as kings or gods. Those in power use whatever tools necessary to convince you that their way of thinking is the only way to think.

They speak in terms of the group or the mob rather than appealing to the individual. We are being herded into the mental trap of somehow interpreting their rhetoric as gospel. It is what we have feared that is becoming the reality, rather than what is reality.

Information can be found if we just look for it. However, in a world where there is no time to sit and research things, we take for granted that those whom we have deemed the messengers will give us the truth. We also take for granted that our individual interpretation is the only answer to a riddle or a predicament.

If a popular conspiracy or alternative theory gains any momentum in the critical mass, there is always someone with an agenda to counter that thought. If they are powerful enough they will try and do their best to erase or otherwise malign the theory to the point where a great number of people would feel ashamed to even bring it up.

Lately I have been seeing that there has been a lot of argument about the September 11th, 2001 attacks and whether or not the United States government was complicit in these attacks.

More evidence piles up to show that the answer seems to be pointing to the affirmative.

Yet there are those who want so badly not to believe that a criminal element is present in our government, that they will go to great lengths to malign those who wish to investigate further into one of the greatest crimes ever perpetrated on a people.

With all of the division on the subject there will never be any real answers. There will only be the theories and they will remain like ghosts in history with legends and mythologies swirling around the kernels of truth.

It will be known as a time when everything changed. Only because it has been mandated that we are supposed to change because of it. Every fear and bit of paranoia can be projected on the one day.

All of the guilt and the regrets in hindsight will continue to haunt us as long as it is convenient for those in power to use it as an example of how our misgivings and negligence lead to that moment in time.

There is always the possibility that our government wasn’t complicit in the 9/11 attacks but they certainly want you to think that you were. This is why you have to be punished with heavier laws, and more stripping away at your constitutional freedoms.

Throughout time we have witnessed strange and wonderful occurrences that have had profound effects on the inhabitants of earth. In order to understand how these occurrences changed things we have to take the time to look up different histories and different accounts of what happened and still it is up to the researcher to interpret just what happened.

As Napoleon once said, all history seems to be, basically, an agreed–upon mythology.

There is a kernel of truth in most histories but of course the powerful and the rich are the ones that have their version of history printed out and distributed to the masses.

Even then the histories and the secrets within them are distributed to those who are deemed worthy to receive these histories. There was a time where many of the laymen were unable to read and so it was important to have an oral history given.

Many people in antiquity relied on self–proclaimed prophets, or priests to give them the word. The word was from God in the minds of the peasants and it was heresy to question the authoritative figures.

Those who did not have the privilege of writing would produce images on the walls of caves or even in the public square. All things were written in images and it was up to the observer to interpret what these images represented.

In antiquity the images that have been uncovered show a basic theme. The theme is universal and has been carried on through millennia.

The images and writings have demonstrated an earth–threatening catastrophe, followed by a rebirth or a time of prosperity. The rebirth can be seen in the ancient buildings that speak an unknown language to us all. The pyramids of Giza, Stonehenge, and the faces of Easter Island are all considered mysterious.

Yet if we are to understand the concept of a major global event that triggered a massive movement in rebuilding perhaps these mysterious "signposts" could indicate that a cataclysm is not often a horrible end but an opportunity to strengthen our will to survive.

Many people don’t even bother to look at history and so they only rely on what they are told about it. They hold on to ideas that they don’t research for themselves and so they wind up believing or reading into things that are only there as an allegory for the human experience.

I find no harm in saying that parts of the bible are loaded with mythology. The reason why is because today we have parts of our history fortified with myth and propaganda that isn’t necessarily true.

One of my dearest friends teaches science and uses her talents to make science fun for young people who have short attention spans. She goes from school to school to demonstrate basic principles. One day she was teaching at a private Baptist school.

She was speaking about the dinosaurs and how they were wiped off the face of the planet some 65 million years ago. A young boy raised his hand and said that it couldn’t have happened because God made the earth 6000 years ago.

She didn’t know how to explain it.

Many religions now are actually explaining the discrepancy by claiming the dinosaurs lived with Adam and Eve in paradise. They also declare these creatures were destroyed during the flood of Noah.

It seems now that all things biblical have fallen into eisogesis. This means that people are reading into the biblical text something that isn’t there at all.

When looking at ancient history, especially when looking at the bible, it is important to understand that if you are going to use a bible for proof of a creation that allegedly happened 6000 years ago, you are going to have to know some of the translations and cultural references in order to have a clearer picture of what might have happened.

Using the bible’s creation story and destruction story as fact undermines the whole idea that the writings are there to promote faith. Using the biblical book of the apocalypse as a blueprint or some recipe to bring back a messiah is heretical.

It throws out the fundamental reasons for having a bible in the first place. Those reasons are faith and hope that all will be well. Throughout the book of the apocalypse we are told that all "revelation" therein should be taken and given with wisdom and common sense.

It is not wise to be rigid about prophecy that uses metaphor to explain what is happening in the mind of a banished prophet. It is so easy to read into it and place false ideas into people’s heads about the future with the use of the self–destruct triggers that exist in the final chapters of the bible.

How much longer can we allow fanatics to continue their crusades based on their denominational bias and their eisogesis?

As I look back on my background in biblical study and knowing of the so–called biblical "facts" that are being legislated to us in the present, I have to say in frustration that complete objectivity about the bible is flatly impossible.

No one can agree on creationism or evolution. No one can agree on the histories of any culture in the bible. No one can agree on Jesus or his disciples or any portion of the bible. No one can agree on prophecy, or even what God is thinking or wanting.

When God speaks, he speaks to us as individuals through individual revelation that is gained from knowledge learned, not knowledge that has been passed around like a whispered message.

It seems that now we are being sold the idea that God speaks to us as a mob. We are being told that God speaks to everyone as a whole.

Fanatics are telling us that it is God that wants you to believe that war is good. It is God that wants you to forfeit your freedoms for safety. We have been told that God hates faggots, and Muslims. God kills those who are corrupt and that he is a God of Might and therefore it is with might that we will make all things right.

It is God that wants the masses to remain in fanaticism, which leads to legalism, obsession with the letter of the law, and an unjustified belief in a personal crusade to save others from themselves.

It is God who with his finger wrote the bible. It is God that gave us so little answers to so many questions.

Remember, it was the archetypes and the symbolism that told the story in the past. It was symbolism that eventually was changed and perverted over time.

To use an old axiom, a picture is said to be worth a thousand words, while a word can be can be interpreted by a thousand pictures or perhaps even thousands of meanings and interpretations.

Back in 1995, when Ground Zero was in its infancy I found it easy to tear down all of the so–called "fringe" ideas that were floating around in the minds of those who had pre–millennial jitters. That was my intent at first and as I progressed in gaining knowledge about the so–called fringe thoughts I realized that there were people out there whose belief systems were more important than any reality that I thought I knew about or even cared about.

I had read all kinds of things and been to all kinds of places. I had seen the world and realized that happiness was just a state of mind and that freedom was also a mental construct.

As if overnight the paranoia was gripping many people and as I produced show after show I was feeling the paranoia as well. It gripped your throat like an icy cold hand and we were told that a special pill could cure all the feelings of anxiety.

They were prescribed by physicians and they came in many flavors. Many of the fearful took the psychotropic communion in order to make peace with the idea that we were to be slammed into a huge wall called the Millennium.

It sounds so odd now that we can look back and see that the time we spent fearing the future could have been used to better our way of life today. If we had just heeded the warnings and mad better decisions, the present would have been a lot less blighted.

Maybe we have forgotten just how scared we all were.

Five years into the future and we were going to be sitting in that big Y2K and I thought that nothing too terrible would really happen to any of us. However, as we inched closer to the date, I was starting to wonder if we were headed down that slippery slope.

A lot was changing in those long years and things we had never dreamed of were happening and the horror got even more unbearable.

Back then people were yelling and screaming about how we were all going to die out. Armageddon was set for the stroke of midnight on January 1st 2000.

Preachers were filling their coffers with money every time they raised a clenched hand to heaven and declared that the abominations of mankind were driving our world into the clutches of the devil.

There were plenty of those before me who ranted about the foolishness of the world. We were warned about the outcome of constant conflict and how dividing the people would create prejudice, bigotry and unbelievable inhumanity to mankind.

There have been times when I have been an activist and I have worked hard to bring about changes in thought and in action. I have succeeded in some of my causes, and in others I have failed.

It comes with the territory.

Every time I ranted and raved about something, every time I was holding a protest sign, or gave some caustic commentary about a news item, I would always find a place where I would stop myself and take a breath. It was then that I realized that sometimes it is okay to pull away from something that troubles you and admit that it is out of your control.

No matter what demonstration you are a part of, no matter what riot or revolution you think you can start, it needs to be said that history often repeats itself.

Greed, hatred, abuse of power, fascism, wars, and slavery always seems to find a way to creep into the human experience.

Another thing that creeps upon us is that ever–shadowing catastrophic ending in which we all disappear from existence and that our dreams are lost somewhere in time, somewhere in the vast reaches of space.

As the millennium and 2000 became an obsession with "end times" pundits, the year 2012 has become another date in time that has people wondering what will happen. With all of its prophecy of doom and gloom, there is also that shimmering light of hope where we see that our lives can be enriched by not fearing the future. Perhaps there will be no sudden endings to life.

Maybe life can change in the twinkling of an eye and we can all live in another golden age that also is buried somewhere in our collective conscience. Perhaps the ideas of a paradise and an age of catastrophe are all programmed into us by some encompassing force.

It could be that this program is there to help us evolve into becoming spiritually connected with all life. It is the program that begins to take over and we then become part of a God like overmind.

In the meantime we must realize that the world is about to change rapidly and we should never take for granted that we will be saved just because some book tells us it is so. There will be many people who will grasp their bibles and assume that they will be taken up in the so–called rapture.

Many will just be waiting and others will be clenching tightly with their cold dead hands.

You must take initiative and not take for granted that there is someone out there who wishes to save you from the challenges ahead. The human experience is an every day battle to maintain a healthy and happy way of life.

It is important to remember that while we stand at the threshold of great change, there will always be that instinct that tugs at the very epicenter of paranoia in the human experience.

That is survival.
