Art Bell used to make reference to a phenomena he called "the quickening" (an homage to the movie "Highlander"); a phenomena that would send all
of humanity across the threshold of a complete paradigm shift. Art would relate current world events that, when combined, would seem to implicate a
society spinning ever further out of control... and not just man made or man manipulated events, but the world as a whole. I am increasingly convinced
that this "quickening" has indeed started, and things will get a whole lot uglier before we see a light at the end of the proverbial tunnel.
Just look at world events over the last 9 months or so.
Benghazi. Conspiracy and cover-up written all over it. Only the survivors know what truly happened, and they have been effectively gagged.
U.S. elections. One of the most debated, protracted, convoluted election cycles in history. Was the vote fixed? Was Obama "placed" in office? The
voting irregularities were nationwide by both sides... are the elections just for show?
Iran. How far are they really from being a nuclear state? Who is pulling their strings?
N. Korea. What are their nuclear capabilities? Is Kim Jong Un even in charge, or are his generals? Will they restart a 60 year old war?
China. An enigma wrapped in a riddle. Are they privately backing DPRK and Iran while they continue to support U.N. sanctions? Will they go after
Taiwan? Philippines? Will they use the DPRK to draw the United States into a world war?
Russia. Hit by a meteor on the same day of an asteroid cosmic "near miss".
Connecticut/ Colorado mass shootings. From the beginning these both had "false flag" written all over them. ATSers didn't even have to stretch the
truth to provide evidence that these were false flags; the media and government did enough of that. Sad tragedies, or more pawns being moved about the
Bizarre/weird/unexplained noises being hear all across the globe. Several threads here on ATS covered this. Are the noises heard on the east coast a
precursor to a massive New Madrid quake? (Such noises were reported prior to the 1800s quakes). What about the same noises being heard in England?
Mainland Europe? Asia?
The Papacy. For the first time in centuries a pope abdicated his papacy? Was this to usher in the so called "Peter the Roman"? Was Benedict
forced to abdicate? Is Pope Frances the real deal as a reformer, or is it for show?
The global economy. It is a mess. Whether or not you subscribe to the big banking conspiracy, the evidence for an upcoming "adjustment" is
everywhere. Bankers call it an adjustment because their wealth remains intact. We call it a crash. It is what it is, and it is just around the corner.
Metals, which had performed so well for so long, just had their prices crash... due to the central banks manipulating the prices. Nothing is safe
Science. Did they find the Higgs boson? Are they really considering using human DNA for computer processing? (Cylons maybe?) Feel free to add more to
this, as I think we are messing with natural processes that should not be messed with. HAARP, chemtrails, big pharma killing us, etc etc.
The paranormal. Scientists are actually admitting that there may be life forms here with us that we don't see, hear or understand. Wow. On the face
it is a fairly benign declaration, but it is a game changer as modern science has never freely admitted that there may be things they just can't
Then finally the general feeling that something is coming, something beyond our grasp. Numerous threads have been started about this. It seems
everywhere, just beneath the surface of our concept of things... but a persistent and pervasive feeling nonetheless.
It seems like we all post threads covering the singular events without regard to the big picture... well boys and girls it seems like the big picture
is beginning to develop. I have no idea what is next, but events do seem to be accelerating.
Maybe Art had it right...
