The United States “Killer” Volcano!

July 23, 2014 - The United States “Killer” Volcano: The Yellowstone Caldera is located in Yellowstone National Park in the United States. The major features of the caldera measure  55 kilometers (34 mi) by 72 kilometers (45 mi). After a BBC television science program coined the term super volcano in 2000, it has often been referred to as the Yellowstone Super volcano. Yellowstone, like Hawaii, is believed to lie on top of an area called a hotspot where light, hot, molten mantle rock rises towards the surface. It created the eastern Snake River Plain (to the west of Yellowstone – pictured below) through a series of huge volcanic eruptions.

Over the past 17 million years, this hotspot has generated a succession of violent eruptions and less violent floods of basaltic lava. Together these eruptions have helped create the eastern part of the Snake River Plain from a once-mountainous region. At least a dozen or so of these eruptions were so massive that they are classified as super eruptions. Volcanic eruptions sometimes empty their stores of magma so swiftly that they cause the overlying land to collapse into the emptied magma chamber, forming a geographic depression called a caldera. Calderas formed from explosive super eruptions can be as wide and deep as mid- to large-sized lakes and can be responsible for destroying broad swaths of mountain ranges.

The loosely defined term “super volcano” has been used to describe volcanic fields that produce exceptionally large volcanic eruptions. The three super eruptions occurred 2.1 million, 1.3 million, and 640,000 years ago. The Henry’s Fork Caldera (1.2 million years ago) produced the smaller Mesa Falls Tuff but is the only caldera from the SRP-Y hotspot that is plainly visible today. Pictured below, Upper Mesa Falls, Henrys Fork of the Snake River, Idaho.

Currently, volcanic activity is exhibited via numerous geothermal vents scattered throughout the region, including the famous Old Faithful Geyser. Geologists were alarmed when the Old Faithful Geyser, suddenly became less faithful, in terms of its periodic eruption cycle. Could the Yellowstone Caldera be getting ready for another Super Eruption? If so, it would wipe-out the United States as we know it; and much of the world!

Death Rider!

July 21, 2014 - Death Rider Fast Approaching: “And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see. And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.” Revelation, 6: 7-8 (King James Version)
Turn away from pride with humility, envy with kindness, gluttony with abstinence, lust with chastity, anger with patience, greed with liberality and sloth with diligence OR reap the consequences.

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

July 20, 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.

Malaysia Airlines Plane With 295 Aboard Crashes in Ukraine.

July 18, 2014 - Malaysia Airlines Plane With 295 Aboard Crashes in Ukraine: A Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 with 295 people aboard crashed and burned on Thursday in an eastern Ukraine wheat field near the Russian border, an area roiled by fighting between pro-Russian separatists and Ukrainian forces. Ukrainian officials called the crash an act of terrorism and said the plane might have been shot down by a Russian-made antiaircraft system.

Ukraine’s president, Petro O. Poroshenko, said in a statement that he was calling for an immediate investigation of the crash of the plane, which was en route to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from Amsterdam. There were no reported survivors among the 280 passengers and 15 crew members.

Mr. Poroshenko said he had called the Dutch prime minister, Mark Rutte, to express his condolences and invite Dutch experts to assist in the investigation. “I would like to note that we are calling this not an incident, not a catastrophe, but a terrorist act,” Mr. Poroshenko said.

Reporters arriving at the scene near the town of Grabovo described dozens of lifeless bodies strewn about, mostly intact, in a field dotted with purple flowers, with remnants of the plane scattered across a road lined with fire engines and emergency vehicles. “It fell down in pieces,” said one rescue worker as tents were set up to gather the dead.

Interplanetary Mission Fission

July 13, 2014 - Interplanetary mission fission: Pictured above, artist’s conception of a spacecraft (lower left) held at a safe distance from its nuclear power source.

Scientists and engineers from Los Alamos, NASA, and National Security Technologies, LLC, have successfully performed a nuclear fission experiment called DUFF, proving the concept of uranium-fission-powered interplanetary space exploration. Providing about 5–7 times more electrical power than most spacecraft have available, a DUFF-like power system would enable spacecraft to carry more, and more power-consuming, scientific instruments. The system relies on a heat pipe—another Los Alamos invention—to carry heat away from the reactor using no moving parts and deliver it to a simple, reliable Stirling engine system, which generates electricity from the heat energy.

Cycles of War and Peace – Prosperity and Depression.

July 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 2013. I would interpret this to mean that the world will reach comprises on the Iran and European crisis’ until January 1, 2013. After that, I would suggest you live at least a tank full of gas 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!
