According to McComas, the ribbon seems to be full of charged particles, which seem to have been concentrated along its length –- but how they got there is a mystery.
IBEX data suggest the alignment of the ribbon is related to the local interstellar magnetic field, which could mean that its origins lie outside of the solar system. The ribbon also appears to have a fine structure, suggesting that the ion concentrations vary along its length.
The Long Count end date on December 21st, 2012 A.D. highlights an astronomical alignment determined by precession. The alignment occurs when the winter solstice sun conjuncts the crossing point of Milky Way and ecliptic in Sagittarius. This crossing point is where the "dark rift" in the Milky Way is, which was known to the ancient Maya as xibalba be (the Road to the Underworld) or simply "the Black Road." Linda Schele identifies the nearby crossing point of Milky Way and ecliptic as the Mayan Sacred Tree, and the modern Quiche call that spot "Crossroads."

If this is all the information you have for the 2012 prophecies you have to get more than that. I say this because even though you believe in coincidence or not, there isn’t a lot of evidence for anything. I agree with you that the Mayans were great astronomers, but how does the ribbon in space have to do with the dark rift in any way? Not trying to offend your judgement I, just don’t see the similarities? Care to explain?

i read recently about some scientist who claims that planet x has already come and gone but it was somehow retracted away from our gravitational pull, as if someone or something had pushed it away from entering our back yard. he also said how earth is always being "saved" from alot of event happening in our sky, like meteors hitting earth. its almost as if he was implying someone keeps saving us from disasters.
well we all know aliens are constantly watching/protecting us so maybe this "ribbon" is one of their latest creations? to save us from something?

Alex collier is full of it. He said in 2006 I think it was, that by 2007 people would be feeling the fourth density. And by 2009 we would be moving in and out of fourth and fifth density. I don’t feel any different than I did in 2007. Well not anything out of the ordinary. At least david wilcock steals other scientists ideas, so it makes is presentations actually seem interesting. This guy has nothing but a Sci-Fi story. By the way, what really is the 5th density? Like are our atoms supposed to change? How would our DNA mutating/changing cause us to move densities? Our DNA mutates like 150 times in our life time supposedly?
The Z-pinch model offers a simple explanation for the “giant ribbon” found wrapped around the heliosphere. The Z-pinch is naturally aligned with the interstellar magnetic field. Solar “wind” ions are scattered and neutralized by electrons from the Birkeland current filaments to form ENA’s coming from the Z-pinch ring, a giant ring about the solar system and orthogonal to the interstellar magnetic field.
The Sun’s heliospheric circuit is connected to the galaxy via the central column and the disk of charged particles. The current path is traced by magnetic fields. The “open” helical magnetic fields discovered high above the Sun’s poles by the Ulysses spacecraft are supportive of Alfvén’s stellar circuit model. And the solar “wind” would seem to connect to the broader disk of charged particles about the heliosphere.
Given the detail in this model we should expect, as more data comes in, that researchers may find in the ENA “ribbon,” bright spots, filamentary structures, and movement of the bright spots consistent with rotation of Birkeland current filament pairs and their possible coalescence.

What if our entire Existence; Solar System, Galaxy, Universe and beyond were all particles in a sealed beacon, floating around in a vacuum on some lab desk, or a kids "pet project"...
Just a thought...

If our solar system is coming into alignment with the galactic center couldn't centrifugal forces be pushing material outwards from the center bombarding this bubble like field and heating it up? This might explain why the planets in our solar system have been heating up. This whole thing brings up other questions.
