Picture of the Day – Devils Tower Panorama.

November 13, 2014 Picture of the Day: America’s first national monument, Devils Tower is a geologic feature that protrudes out of the rolling prairie in Wyoming. David Lane captured this amazing 16-image panorama of the monument illuminated by the Milky Way and green airglow. Of visiting Devils Tower, David says: “From ancient stories of the Pleiades taking refuge at the top to the generations of Native Americas that held it sacred, it had a deep sense of age and a stoic nature that impressed me. It’s so unexpected, so large in person, so steeped in traditions.”

Cycles of War and Peace – Prosperity and Depression.

November 12, 2014 Ganeau’s Index of Cyclic Equilibrium: Claude Ganeau developed a method of determining periods on the earth that were either positive or negative. He termed this his “Index of Cyclic Equilibrium.” The Ganeau Index of Cyclic Equilibrium for the first 20 years of the 21st century is shown above, and explained below.

Consider this simple analogy. The Moon and Sun form a basic cycle of about a month. The word for “Month” comes from the Moon. A lunar month is 29 ½ days and is the period of a complete revolution of the moon around the earth. It is also called the synodic month, hence Moon equals Month.

For centuries humans have measured time by the Moon’s cycle. The cycle begins with the new moon, when the sun and moon or conjunct. The waxing phase is from the new moon to the full moon, while the waning phase is from the full moon to the new moon. Traditionally, projects are started on new moons, are completed at the full moon and solidified during the waxing phase from full to new. The waxing phase was one of growth and positive vibrations, while the waning phase was one of decay and negative vibrations.

Claude Ganeau applied this principle to the cycles of the outer planets, from Jupiter to Pluto. Using the pairings of these planets, he obtained 10 cycles as follows: (1) Jupiter/Saturn, (2) Jupiter/Uranus, (3) Jupiter/Neptune, (4) Jupiter/Pluto, (5) Saturn/Uranus, (6) Saturn/Neptune, (7) Saturn/Pluto, (8) Uranus/Neptune, (9) Uranus/Pluto and (10) Neptune/Pluto. The waxing phase of each pair was considered good and the waning phase was considered bad.

In his own words, “The stability or instability of the world is directly related to the difference in the sum of the phases of all waxing cycles of the five outer planets, and the sum of the phases of waning cycles of planets. While the resultant figure remains positive, the earth will tend to experience relative stability and a period of evolution; when the resultant figure is negative the earth enters a period of crisis and involution.”

Ganeau calculated this index for the 100 year period from January 1, 1900 to December 31, 1999; and found a remarkable correlation with the state of the world in terms of war and peace, prosperity and depression, and several other factors. For example, the index accurately forecast WWI, WWII, the Korean War and the Vietnam War.

I calculated the Ganeau Index for January 1st for the years 2000 through 2020 and produced the Cyclic Equilibrium Index you see at the top of this page. The left scale reflects the sums of the 10 pairs of planets, in terms of their combined waxing or waning degree of separation. For example, the cycle peaks at 893 positive on January 1, 2002. On that date, all 10 planetary pairs were in their waxing phase. The sum of the degrees of waxing separation was 893 degrees longitude. On January 1, 2003; the sum of the waxing pairs (in terms of degrees of separation) and the sum of the waning pairs was exactly zero. The dashed gold line is a three period moving average. There is a direct correlation between how negative the Ganeau Index is and how bad conditions are on earth.

The index remains negative from 2004 out, with significant dips in 2007 (-905) and 2009 (-988); before “falling off a cliff” during and after 2014. I would interpret this to mean that the world will reach comprises on critical issues UNTIL 2015, at which time the Ganeau Index plunges.  I would suggest that you live at least a tank full of gas away from the nearest large city, have six months’ supply of food and water, be armed and preferably live in the country where you can grow your own food and generate your own power – either with wind, water, solar or a combination of those three.

The Ganeau Index of Equilibrium does not bode well for the future of planet earth. To be forewarned is to be forearmed. The index does not turn positive again until 2026!

Picture of the Day – Surreal Landscape.

November 8, 2014 Picture of the Day: “I cannot describe the eerie feeling I had when I walked in on this scene,” writes Julie Fletcher of this photo, which received an honorable mention in the Places category of the 2013 National Geographic Photo Contest.

“I followed a massive storm front for several hundred kilometers hoping to capture something special, but this blew my mind. The surreal milky green water is a natural phenomenon caused by electromagnetic activity from the lightning hitting the water’s surface. There was no rain where I was and not much wind either, but in the distance the sky was charged and angry, subjecting its wrath [to] the graveyard of dead trees in this normally very dry lakebed. I was able to capture a series of unique images, this being one of the best.”

Picture of the Day – Yellowstone National Park.

November 7, 2014 Picture of the day: The morning commute is a little different at Yellowstone National Park. Cameron Patrick captured this photo on a cold morning — just after the bison herd had waded through a river alongside the road. The bisons’ body heat caused the water to turn to steam in the cold air, creating the mist around the bison.

Cyclical Index Points to World Depression – Civilization Decay – From 2014 to 2022.

November 1, 2014 - Barbault’s Cyclical Index: Armand Barbault was a French astronomer/astrologer who published extensively in “L’Astrologue” a French astrological magazine. Through constructing graphs for earlier periods, he soon became convinced that his forecast technique could not be expected to mark out every detail of world history, by and large it did show the main trends of global tension, growth and decay, with a fidelity which would no doubt have pleased Plato himself.
Naming it the “Cyclical Index”, Barbault first drew attention to it in 1967 in his major work “Les Astres et L’Histoire” (The Stars and History). The publication of this work has stimulated further exploration along these lines by various of his colleagues in the pages of L’Astrologue. Notable among these was Claude Ganeau, who had in fact developed is own variation on this idea in 1947, following a suggestion of Armand Barbault, which was not published.
Ganeau’s graph was recently published in the “Chaos Blog” and reflects the same general decline from about 2014 to 2022. I extended Barbault’s work out to 2027. Again we see a peak in world growth and prosperity around 2013 (Ganeau) and 2014 (Barbault). This does not bode well for the next eight years of world history, as both indices bottom between 2020 and 2022.
Therefore, we should expect a period of economic contraction and depression, natural disasters and general world decay, decline and friction; from 2014 to 2022. I expect the transformation to be sudden and unexpected (Uranus) and total  annihilation and transformation (Pluto) of the world we now know! In my own work, I see the most significant transition starting in the first half of 2014, approximately April 21, 2014. The years 2014 and 2016 should be particularly harsh. Note: The month of April 2014 saw a significant rise in earthquakes world-wide. As we start November 2014 I see a world in transition in the Ukraine, Middle-East et. al.; that point to massive economic, geographic and geo-political changes in the world!
