This is interesting, a weird theory I have about back then was that the decade of the 1980s started off fairly well and did peak at about the point of the mid-1980s.
Then after that point, some state 1986 or '87 as the exact year things began to descend and helter-skelter a bit and lead into a whole different timeline or pathway.
Now I've already heard that something weird caused it but I wasn't sure what it was....
So with this bugging me (as it has for a while) I specifically asked him what caused this.
He reckoned that all across the earth there's a sequence of stones, that when 'aligned' cause a 'shift' in conciousness.
He told me that these 'stones' were moving into alignment (late 70s to early 80s) and actually aligned perfectly in 1986 - 87, then moved slowly out of alignment again.
He was in a big city when '86 and '87 were going on and in his words 'many people were kind of crazy', or 'possessed by a kind of madness' for that period....
I had that same feeling that things were going well in the 1980's and then things began to descend in the late 80's. (I'm not sure about the stones your friend talked about.) I figured it was the stock market crash of 1987, but there were other interesting things going on in 1987:
“The Harmonic Convergence (of 1987) is the name given to the world's first globally synchronized meditation, which occurred on August 16–17, 1987; also closely correlated to an exceptional alignment of planets (8 planets formed a Grand Trine) in our solar system..”
“ The convergence is purported to have ‘corresponded with a great shift in the earth’s energy from warlike to peaceful.’"
“According to Argüelles, the Harmonic Convergence also began the final 25-year countdown to the end of the Mayan Long Count in 2012, which would be the so-called end of history and the beginning of a new 5,125-year cycle. Evils of the modern world, e.g. war, materialism, violence, abuses, injustice, oppression, etc. would end with the birth of the 6th Sun and the 5th Earth on December 21, 2012.” (condensed from Wikipedia)
“Black Monday refers to Monday October 19, 1987, the largest stock market drop in Wall St. history when the Dow Jones plunged 508 points, losing over 22% of its value. That fall far surpassed the one-day loss of 12.9% that began the great stock market crash of 1929 and started the Great Depression.”
“ The crash began in Hong Kong and spread west to Europe, hitting the U.S. after other markets had already declined by a significant margin.”
“Later that morning, two U.S. warships shelled an Iranian oil platform in the Persian Gulf in response to Iran's Silkworm missile attack on the U.S. flagged ship MV Sea Isle City.”
“By the end of October, stock markets in Hong Kong had fallen 45.5%, Australia 41.8%, Spain 31%, the U.K. 26.45%, the U.S. 22.68%, and Canada 22.5%. New Zealand’s market was hit especially hard, falling about 60% from its 1987 peak, and taking several years to recover.” (info condensed from Wikipedia)
