Well, it sure seems like you were picking up on the Aleutians! Mag 6-plus quakes aren't exactly every day up there, and as that 6.1 was just a day
after a post where you specifically discussed that region I'd say that was a pretty solid pickup.
As to the why, I've puzzled that for years. One of my most precise successful predictions a few years back in this thread was actually for an Alaska
quake -- but inland, where notable ones are less common than down in the island chain or near the coast. I was quite specific about the lat/long
location and time frame. (Post from May 31, 2008
But the thing is, I live half a world away from Alaska -- as you do, pretty much -- and I'm a few degrees further south than you as well. And yet one
day, while working on another post and studying the USGS world quake map, I suddenly "saw" the details for this upcoming quake: the location, likely
magnitude, and time frame. It was like reading it off a screen in front of my eyes. ( I know that sounds nuts but that's what I get sometimes.)
So I posted what I "saw". And it happened. I posted the details in the Results
but as the original link to the USGS quake summary page there has long since dropped off their system, here's a
link to the page from the USGS search database
As a matter of interest, they originally had it at a mag 4.1 so that's what I posted in the "results" thread, but later they revised it up to a
4.4, getting closer to the mag 5 I'd predicted.
But why did I get that "flash image" with the details of location and time frame, three days before it happened?
What energy is involved in that?
Energy? Yes. Basically all of this revolves around energy
. I believe the whole system of energy involved is very complex even at the most
fundamental, physical level. The interactions are vast, so even some of the most intensely-observed fault systems in the world -- such as the San
Andreas -- still hold many mysteries for the experts who've studied them for decades. Simply put, it is almost never going to be an "A+B causes C"
And that's just at the fundamental level, without even considering how the more "esoteric" side of it works. It looks like some of us sense quakes,
from much too far away to physically feel them -- and even days in advance of when they actually happen (which renders the distance aspect a bit moot
It seems likely that we're sensing energy. But the conundrum is, that's what we do all the time. Everyone does. We all detect and sense various
forms of energy. But maybe some of us are sensing forms of energy that are (perhaps) not well understood. I've mentioned before that there may be
some odd facet of time involved as well, but time and energy are related, after all. Or we think so. (Well okay, Einstein thought so!)
I'll repeat something else I've said maybe a couple of times already during the past few years in this thread. If we -- "we" meaning humans -- can
gain a better understanding of how some of us sense things like quakes, then we might be able to discover the energy relationships involved. From
that, it may be possible to create devices that can "sense" what we do -- but much more reliably and consistently. Sort of like having seismographs
that detect the waves from quakes hours or days before they actually occur.
Who knows? They might be a new type of wave form -- or even an unknown form of energy.
