Today is January 14th 2014.
My name is irrelevant, and so is my story I guess, as I can assure that there will be others.
Nevertheless, I have the time, and the desire to tell it as I see it…To give my color commentary in regards to the past 12 months or so.
Everyone who watched TV, saw movies, used the internet, read papers and magazines knew of the 2012 prophecy. You know which one I’m talking about.
The one where hemispheres were supposed to be reversed, a mysterious planet was going to smack our own out of the solar system like a marble, the
average Joe was going to become enlightened (I wish that would have happened!), et cetera, et cetera…You get the idea. Suffice to say, when most of
the world woke up on their respective December 21st’s, 22nd’s, and 23rd’s and so on, nothing was different. Well, our planets population was a
bit lower, due to wide spread panic and suicide, but not enough to matter in the grand scheme of things. I like to refer to the whole 2012 subject as
an inadvertent media holocaust. Many unnecessary deaths caused by fear mongering by the main stream media.
But I digress…
Because something did happen, eventually. Whether or not it was related to the Mayan Long Count calendar or whatever is still up for debate, but most
believe it’s just a coincidence at this point. And it didn’t occur in 2012.
On January 15th of 2013, time had a hiccup. Conventional time keeping mechanisms were unaffected of course, as these are just machines set to keep
time as we know it. Yet the sun hung at its point in the sky at 1425 Greenwich Mean Time for about an hour, thus setting an hour later than scheduled.
The Moon came out and set later, tides were later, planets crossed the zenith later. Calculations would show that our orbit slowed down for about 56
minutes. These 56 minutes were the most important minutes in the history of the human race.
The time slippage was hardly noticed by anyone, commented on perhaps (Gee Marylyn, it got dark late tonight huh?), but it didn’t really cause alarm
to the majority of the populace, and for reasons still unknown, it was not reported on. It’s suspected there was a wide scale media blackout on the
event, in hopes that the world governments (who I should point out did happen to notice), could put their best minds together to find out what exactly
had just happened, and hopefully offer up a logical, safe explanation, in hopes that world wide panic would not break out as it did prior to the
beginning of the new year.
While the politicians sat debating what to do, the on duty team for the LHC at CERN was busy. I’m not a particle physicist, or anything remotely
close (my middle name should be “in laymen’s terms please”) but I’ll explain what I know as best as I can for this next part. At 1425 GMT,
they LHC crew encountered quite a dilemma. While routinely colliding their particle beams and gathering data (still no Higgs Boson, I regret to say)
something unexplainable happened. The beams seemingly switched direction and started to collide end to end rather than front to front. I understand
that CERN published a statement some weeks after and, if you are interested then check it out, perhaps you can understand it better than me.
As you can imagine, NASA scientists were busy as hell at this point. With half of the organization being tapped by Congress for answers and the other
half in calls with CERN (remember, they partnered with NASA in what was called an unusual move back in ’11), government inefficiency was at its
finest. It was some time later that day when it was concluded that the events at the LHC are what caused our orbit to slow. It was assumed that the
reversal of the beams caused a disturbance in the magnetic field or something along those lines and that there was no immediate cause for alarm. That
was the case until the crew of the ISS finally made their daily report. Said report, if you are interested, can also be found all over the web. What
they saw was heart stopping, breathtaking, amazing…yet a little unsettling.
Let me pause here for a moment, if I may.
Imagine if you will, a planet earth with no record of human life; a planet that has been allowed to evolve unmolested by intelligent hands and
intelligent minds. No Panama Canal, no Great Wall of China. Mount Rushmore is nothing but a rocky cliff face. The most interesting thing in what we
call Egypt is the Nile. No man made anything has ever graced its atmosphere. No human blood has been spilt out of anger. No religion to police it, and
no police to uphold others laws. Picture the place you hang you hat as nothing but a rolling prairie, or muddy swamp, or frozen tundra with nothing
to see around you but the horizon.
On January 16th 2013, about 56 minutes after the sun rose over our horizon, 186.4 million miles away (parallel to us, 1 AU from the Sun) a bluish
planet appeared right behind, but a little above where the sun had just risen. (I’d like to note here that a few months later it was unanimously
decided to shut down the LHC pending further review).
What people saw when they glanced up into the sky that day looked like our own earth, just like it looks in pictures taken from the moon (but a little
smaller). It didn’t take long for our observatories to train their scopes on our twin. In no time at all, images from around the world were
everywhere showing a planet that looked and behaved exactly like our own. And I mean exactly.
Once again, there was panic, yet it was isolated and not as extreme as before. Most people were too fascinated and awestruck (albeit a bit confused)
to be worried. Besides, our leaders were assuring us that everything was okay, and as always, religions had a palatable explanation as to what
happened. In the end, the most widely accepted theory states that somehow, the reversal that occurred in the LHC caused some kind of time shift, and
the product of this malfunction was the appearance of a seemingly twin planet opposite of us in our very own solar system. In the weeks following
every space agency known was scrambling to send up probes (at an estimated 60 days travel time) to scout this planet.
By far, NASA was the most successful in the exploration of what was now being called Novus Terra. By using rovers based on Spirit and Opportunity, but
greatly improved, they confirmed on March 17th 2013 what many had suspected.
