Nice thread, lots of interesting reading and as usual a few arrogant denial posts based on pseudo-scientific bable, which has been going on since the
"greatest minds" of a certain time stated the earth was flat. We are discovering new things about our own planet, the sun and the Universe every day,
and that includes a few (rare) scientists who have the humility to admit they don't know a lot about the subject even though some of them have
dedicated their entire lives to the study of a certain topic.
Reliable sources? As far as my observations, we can find oposite opinions on almost every point of view in the internet, either by ignorance, lack of
intelligence or personal agendas. We must CHOOSE what to believe in, even among "well respected" sources. I've seen enough "sicentific facts" debunked
over the course of my own life to know better than blindly believe in "reliable sources". In this age and time when anyone can blog and regurgitate
about whatever the hell they want, intuition has become a valuable asset.
I truly believe that it's important to admit we have a LIMITED understanding of nature's phenomena and therefore are unable to explain them in their
entirety. So I'll state my opinion as an ad nauseum IMHO, based on what I've read so far and have chosen to accept as feasible - YMMV.
Regarding prophecies and such, I believe some of us have ability to get in touch with some sort of "collective counsciousness", for lack of a better
definition, which contains trends for the future. Nostradamus and the prophets who wrote sacred books like the Bible, in my opinion, are among these
The mayan calendar is based on cycles, and there's speculations that every time one of those ends there are natural cataclysms of greater or smaller
magnitude. Remains to be seen.
There are also astrological aspects for december 2012, which refer to what is known as "ascention" or "vibrational change". Look it up, I'm no expert
on the subject but there's plenty of info on it if you google it.
The fact that we'll have a solar peak in december and that Jupiter will be directly aligned with the Earth and the Sun around Dec 2 makes it all the
more interesting, seems no one is taking gravitational pulls of the Sun, the planets, the Moon and the center of the Milky Way into account. I do
believe magnetism and gravity are but vectors of the same energy type, so one does have some influence over the other. Again, IMHO.
It's interesting to note that besides a huge hole in the Earth's magnetosphere recently reported by NASA, I've seen several articles stating that the
North Pole has been dislocating at an increasingly faster pace (currently around 50 km / year) as well as about the weakening of the Earth's
magnetosphere, and also several articles pointing out that the magnetic pole reversal has already begun and I'd guess it started slowly and has been
increasing its pace as time goes by. Last but not least, there doesn't seem to be a fixed rule about how long a magnetic pole reversal takes, I've
read more than one article saying it could take as long as thousands of years and as little as a few months.
We've been witnessing an increase in both volcanic and seismic activities all over the world in the last few months, which MAY be caused, among other
things, by the magnetic pole reversal which as far as my understanding goes, would cause the inner molten iron core of the planet to move a bit more
erratically which in turn could cause an increase in the planet's internal pressure. Just speculating about what makes sense to me, I don't know
ANYTHING for a fact and DO NOT claim to be right. The way I see it we're all just sharing opinions and points of view, no need to go berzerk on anyone
So in short, yes, I do see the possibility of a suddeen magnetic pole reversal as a very real one, as well as an ELE (Extinction Level Event) directly
related to it. I do not wish to spread panic or anything like that and do not have a doomsday fixation and/or death wish, but from a spiritual
standpoint I do believe it's time for change as I think the dense Earth has reached its limit as an evolution environment for the human race. However
I don't think it will be the "end", but only a new (and better) beginning.
