Professor Raymond Wheeler, from the University of Kansas, at first almost stumbled into the frightening data. The connection was initially discovered by noted Russian scientist Alexander Chizhevsky during 1915: solar storms trigger conflict, wars and death. A vortex of death.

so we went from entering a galactic plain of love and oneness, but since that went bunk, we are now entering a solar storm of hell-ness....
I mean it could be implied that the moon has an effect on us, but no psychologist will say he notices the change, and no ER nurse or doctor will say they can tell the difference. Cops will say they get as many calls on full moon nights as any other.
I think that we have a placebo effect of thinking a full moon makes us crazy and then acting out on it so as to make it true.
We shouldn’t develop a social phobia of solar flares like medieval cultures developed one of full moons.

Throw a little bit of fact around then bring on the crap.
Wheeler related human cycles to weather cycles, not sunspots, not 11 year cycles. His weather predictions weren't very accurate. But he would have fit right in at ATS. He postulated a 100 year cycle of four climates:
He said that the Cold-Dry (occuring at the time) would end around 2000 A.D., giving way to the warm-wet part of the cycle. What did he say were the characteristics of the transition from cold-dry to warm-wet?
Weather is coldest during the cold-dry phase. Near the end of the cold-dry phase, societies become stabilized by strong leadership, reformed governments, and a revival of nationalism. The wars in this phase are expansionary and imperialistic. The transition from the cold-dry to the following warm-wet period is characterized by a revival of learning, burgeoning genius, industrial revolution, and bountiful crops. Human behavior is improved by the high energy level
I won't argue about whether or not a "Golden Age" has been developing over the past 10 years or so or if it will continue for the next 15. But Dr. Wheeler certainly didn't say we're headed for a "vortex of death". Not for a while at least.
