Possible Arrival of a Galactic Superwave within the Coming Months?

Recently we reported the story that scientists have been tracking a dense cloud of gas heading for the Galactic Center with its closest approach to the GC being expected to occur around the beginning of July 2013.  See the G2 cloud story below on this superwave forum.  But new information has come to light which may require a reevaluation of those conclusions.  Just last week my attention was called to a disturbing report put out by the Farsight Institute, an organization that conducts remote viewing experiments.  Remote viewing (RV) is the practice of seeking impressions about a distant or unseen target using paranormal means, in particular, extra-sensory perception (ESP).

In May 2008 the institute conducted an RV experiment in which they used a team of 12 remote viewers to view 9 coastal geographic locations situated around the Earth as they would be seen on two future target dates: June 1st 2008 and June 1st 2013.  The viewings for June 2008 were mostly normal in that they reflected what life would normally have been like at those locations at that time.  But, what is somewhat disturbing, a majority of the reports for the June 2013 viewing described a radical departure from the norm as if the Earth had experienced some dire global event.  The results of the experiment and the viewing of these 2013 earth changes are posted on the Farsight Institute website and are also described by Courtney Brown, the director of the institute, in an April 2012 Whistle Blower Radio interview.

In particular, this remote-viewing data suggests that by mid 2013 these target coastal locations will have experienced: a) some form of impact that leads to tsunamis and possible vulcanism,  b) extensive and forceful flooding, c) excessive cosmic ray (or solar) radiation, and d) storms and other severe weather.  What is particular noteworthy is that (in my opinion) many of these reported physical effects resemble those that might be expected to occur in connection with the impact of a galactic superwave.

In regard to the first two viewed effects, it is possible to consider that this impact or “collision” may be due to the abrupt arrival of a gravity wave traveling outward from the Galactic center.  The steep gravity potential gradient that might propagate at the forefront of a superwave could abruptly push (or pull) the Earth together with the Moon, Sun, and planets.  The large tidal forces appearing with the wave’s arrival could cause a substantial torquing of the Earth’s spin axis which could trigger earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions.  Gravity wave effects are the most little understood aspect of the superwave phenomenon because we have no way to verify their presence in distant active galaxies.  As one instance of prior experience, we can consider the December 26, 2004 Malaysian earthquake and tsunami which occurred two days prior to the arrival of the most intense gamma ray burst to be observed in modern times and which is the only one to have originated from a star in our Galaxy.  Again the second effect listed in the above summary, the forceful flooding, would be a consequence of a tsunami and could again arise from a superwave gravity wave impact.  Understand that these are not definite conclusions only observations of similarity to the RV reports.

Looking at the reports from the worst case scenario (Timeline A), we may consider viewer Daz for example, who focuses on Mombasa, Kenya.  For 2013 he reports the presence of “many man made structures” that are “interacted with by a speedy energy/motion.”  Daz writes “a large city with many structures.  These feel impacted by a fast moving energetic that causes damage, destruction to the structures.”  “This is surprised and causes chaos and damage.  The cause feels natural — part of a natural cycle.”  This sounds much like a tsunami.  But the reference to a natural cycle calls to mind a possible superwave cause.  Viewer Allgire, focusing on this same target, accurately draws a shoreline with a snow-capped, inland mountain in the background which he labels as “Kilamanjaro”.  Kilamanjaro is in fact about 250 km inland from Mombasa.  But in one picture he draws of the coastal area he shows arrows coming inland from the sea and writes “water moves inland, pushes; force hits shoreline; tsunami, hurricane.”

Another viewer, Maria, focusing on the Mumbasa target drew a picture depicting some sort of spiraling trajectory from the sky to the ground and in the next picture depicts an outward energetic motion that seems to flatten trees and structures in all directions.  She labels this spiral with the word “energy” and shows what appears to be an invisible protective dome over an area of houses being impacted and labels this dome “Israel.”  This calls to mind the conflict between the Palestinians and Israel that sprang up in the fall of 2012 and which at the time of writing has halted with a cease fire.  So this implies either a missile strike or something which is missile-strike-like, such as a comet impact.  In fact, the Farsight Institute analysis has interpreted these tsunami-producing impacts as being due to Earth’s future collision with large meteors.  One viewer, Dick, focussing on the coordinate for Key West, Florida in 2013 drew a diagram showing an arcing trajectory with an impact indicated and arrows radiating outward with the words “secondary waves of energy radiate, seems to ignite, kinetic energy transformed into thermal energy.”  In another diagram he drew arrows directed at people and writes: “There is unexpected energy here that radiates.  Energy surpasses humans.  They feel exposed, caught out in the open.  Urge to flee.”  Astronomers currently have not reported any approaching comet, especially one that might collide with the Earth prior to June 2013.  So the origin of this arcing impact is a bit of a mystery.  Could a superwave gravity wave create a disproportionately greater propulsion force on nearby small bodies, of size 10 meters or so, and forcefully propel them onto the Earth?  Perhaps this is something to consider as well.

The reports of the high cosmic ray intensities would also be expected from a superwave arrival.  For example, remote viewer Sita focussing on the coordinate for the U.S. Congress building in Washington wrote “power spot: electromagnetic strength above normal” “there is high electromagnetic activity taking place near target”.  Also viewer Allgire focussing on the coordinate for Sydney, Australia reported the presence of an ozone hole and drew a diagram showing the Earth and stratosphere with a note saying “radiation beats down”.  This too would be an expected consequence of a superwave since elevated cosmic ray radiation would produce elevated nitric oxides in the stratosphere which would photolytically destroy the polar ozone layer rendering high latitude regions such as Sydney susceptable to in increased flux of UV radiation.

The Timeline A remote-viewing data also suggested that by mid 2013 people at these target coastal locations would be experiencing the following hardships:

  1. Massive self-organized relocation from coastal areas (refugees)
  2. The breakdown of rescue or other notable governmental functioning
  3. The breakdown of the food supply system
  4. The breakdown of the vehicular transport system
  5. Extensive loss of buildings near coasts

All of the above remote viewing data appears to suggest that a superwave-like event will strike prior to June 1st 2013, hence some time between the last month of 2012 and the first five months of 2013.  Although there is the consolation that a substantial fraction of the remote viewings did not see this outcome, a total of 18 out of 38 sessions, or about 47% of the viewings, reported events that could be interpreted as a normal extrapolation of present day events at those locations.  So, there is a substantial possibility that things will not turn out as bad as the other 53% of the viewings seem to indicate.  We will only know after June 1st 2013 who was correct.

Nevertheless the catastrophic predictions due raise some concern regarding the impending arrival of a superwave, particularly in view of the fact that in recent years astronomers have been tracking a large gas cloud with a possible hidden dwarf star positioned extremely close to the Galactic core and making its way toward Galactic center perigee (closest approach) by July 2013.  In my previous posting about this G2 cloud, I had concluded that the cloud would likely not trigger a superwave, but I was not 100 percent certain.  I noted that if there were a brown dwarf star or jovian planet embedded in this cloud, as this star or planet came in close to the Galactic core, its diameter would radically inflate through a kind of super Hot Jupiter effect.  Hot Jupiters are jupiter-like planets that are in close orbit to their parent star and seen to be unusually bloated by excess energy production in their interiors.  Whereas Hot Jupiters are seen to have diameters up to 80% larger than normal, a brown dwarf approaching the Galactic center, where the tidal forces and gravity potential are far far greater, may inflate to many times their normal size.  This excess energy production may be due in part to the tremendous increase in genic energy in the star’s interior arising from the embedded star’s entry into increasingly supercritical conditions as it approaches increasingly close to the Galactic center.  This genic energy effect is something astronomers are currently not taking into account in their assessment of this G2 cloud mainly because the idea is still rather new and isn’t yet part of mainstream astronomy.   But it could be a very important factor missing from their calculations.  As the star became increasingly bloated, the area it presented would intercept an increasingly large fraction of the cosmic ray flux being emitted from the galactic core.  This cosmic ray flux would further contribute to its heating.  So it is quite possible that all these factors together (tidal forces, genic energy, and the intercepted energy flux) might be sufficient to overcome the star’s self-gravity and rip it apart.  Once ripped apart this dispersed material would readily fall onto the Galactic core’s surface triggering highly energetic activity.  So now instead of talking about a 3 earth mass gas cloud we are talking about a possible 10 to 100 Jupiter mass planet or star being consumed, 3000 to 30,000 times more matter/energy.  This could be then sufficient to trigger a core explosion.

I have been in touch with Courtney Brown, director of the Farsight Institute, and asked him if any further remote viewing work has been done to further narrow down the time of this global event.  He responded that the event is too close in time to do more remote viewing on.  He said that the viewers would not be satisfactorily blind to the targets and the data would as a result be junk.  He said that their past 2008 data was “virgin” so to speak, so they are reliable.  But the new data would be contaminated since everyone would be thinking that they were viewing a post 2012 target.  In other words, although viewers are not told in advance what time period they are given for viewing, being now so close to the end of 2012 and given the previous data that they are now aware of and all the frightening scenarios that have been publicly circulated, including the movie 2012, their reports would likely be subconsciously influenced and biased.

Dr. Brown does not see a benefit to speculating in advance as to what might be the cause of the 2013 viewing results, whether caused by a superwave or some other phenomenon.  He says that although the data are really strange, they could be wrong.  He views this as an experiment that was conducted and whose outcome can only be known on June 1st, 2013 when we can see what the actual targets will look like and compare to the RV descriptions.

The Minority Report. I recently discussed the Farsight Institute findings with one remote viewer who has had an established successful viewing track record.  He has followed the work of the Farsight Institute but has personal doubts about the validity of the June 2013 viewings, at least the half that had a catastrophic outlook.  He also related that he heard about the superwave phenomenon 6 months ago and was asked to look into it.  From the materials he collected, his sense was that, here on our planet, we probably won’t even know that we passed through the wave.  He said that there will however be some effects but they will be subtle and not extreme to any point or issue.  He did not see the wave as hitting us, but rather sees us as “passing through the wave”.

So here we have two very different remote viewing scenarios.  One reports severe physical and social effects by June 2013 and the other sees that nothing very out of the ordinary will happen.  As to which might be the correct view, I leave that up to you to decide.  Consult your own intuition.  Or just wait and see what happens.

This leaves us with the question as to what is the significance of the 2037 date that is implied by the periods of the Crab and Vela pulsars.  These are two SETI beacons that are a key part of a message that warns us about the Galactic superwave phenomenon.  Then there is the July 8, 2008 Avebury Manor crop circle which encodes almost the same date (July 2035) in addition to the December 21, 2012 date (see the lecture video “Intelligent Communication from the Galaxy“).

It is worth mentioning one other remote viewing study of the future, one that was conducted by Stephen Schwartz, who is currently a senior fellow at the Samueli Institute.  He had directed a team of over 4000 subjects to remote view the date 2050 and found the following.  People at that future date were reported to no longer depend on utilities for their power or gasoline for their cars.  Some kind of energy revolution has decentralized power production, each house having its own energy source.  They saw most chronic genetic diseases as having been eliminated and that there was an increasing use of genetic engineering in affluent countries.  But, rather than there being a problem with overpopulation, in 2050 they predicted that there was an under population problem in a many places possibly due to a lower birthrate and multiple pandemics.  Or should we include a  2013-like event as another possible cause.  This calls to mind the Georgia Guidestones timecapsule.  Based on the 2050 Project report it appears that many of us may still be around to see that future day and this gives us hope that whatever might happen in the next half year may not be a final end, but maybe a new beginning.

Trying to predict when the next superwave will arrive or whether it will be a big or small magnitude event is like trying to walk forward while looking backward.  Even though a nearing superwave would have left the Galactic center 23,000 years ago, we are essentially blind to determine such future events through our normal senses.  When we feel earthquakes and see its signs in the sky, it will have already arrived and our time to prepare will have run out.  As it is said, “The Day of the Lord arrives like a Thief in the Night.”

In times of uncertainty like the present we turn to remote viewer reports.  But, here too we find differences of opinion.  In the words of the Jedi master, Yoda, “Always in motion, the future is.”  The Starburst Foundation which hosts this forum doesn’t necessarily endorse any of these future views.  But we feel that we should at least inform the public about them and their possible relevance to the next superwave arrival.

Meanwhile the scientific community is taking seriously this window of observation of events that will be seen to transpire in the vicinity of the Galactic center.  A committee of 10 scientists chaired by Geoffrey Bower of U.C. Berkeley had been asked to decide what will be the Galactic center observation policy for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory and, as a result, on June 29, 2012 they issued a recommendation report.  They have agreed that during this critical period of the G2 cloud encounter that radio telescopes should monitor the Galactic center’s radio flux density on a weekly basis.  Twenty three years ago I was advocating observations on a daily basis, but this is a step in the right direction.

But they admit they don’t know what to expect will be the Galactic core’s response to this accretion event.  In one part of their report they state:

Within a few year timescale, an increase in the radio flux from the inner accretion flow is expected to occur, accompanied by a resolvable change in the size of the radio emitting region. We emphasize, however, that given the uniqueness of this event, there could be other effects and outcomes that have not been thought of and that the community should be prepared for.

They note that if the flux is seen to rise above a certain threshold, say 3 times its long-term average, they propose to initiate more intensive monitoring including very long baseline astrometric monitoring which will yield an extra high resolution of the Galactic core.  If something big does happen, will they let the public know without delay?  Or will they sit on the data for months as they did in the case of the intense December 28th 2004 gamma ray burst which they informed the public about two months later!
