Earth Changes, Psychic Prediction, & Electromagnetic (EM) Warfare - Using the disciplines of catastrophic geology, seismology, vulcanology, parapsychology, and public interest policy analysis, Futurist Alfred Lambremont Webre develops a new field theory explaining how millennial prophecies of cataclysm might be fulfilled – not by earth system mechanics, but by the deployment of a new generation of EM weapons.
Earth Sciences & Psychic Prediction
Catastrophic geology, seismology, vulcanology, and astronomy do not forecast cataclysmic scale earth events (massive tectonic shifts, subsidence or rising of new land masses from the ocean, turning of the earth on its axis). Yet high psychics , with confirmed records of accuracy, predict these very cataclysmic events. Assuming these psychics were accessing accurate precognitive information, what might be an alternative mechanism that could cause cataclysmic earth events?
Electromagnetic (EM) weapons
Electromagnetic (EM) weapons are a possible trigger of cataclysmic earth events. EM fields can superheat the ionosphere, devastating magnetic bands around the earth, and in turn causing massive disruption of the earth’s Tectonic plates. A January 17, 1995 earthquake in Kobe, Japan may have been triggered by clandestine deployment of EM weapons. EM strategic warfare includes weather, climate and earth event warfare. Researchers have reported the use of EM weapons in anti-population mind-control operations over major cities.
Human prophets such as Michel de Notredame (1503-1566), known as Nostradamus, and prophetic traditions, ranging from the Mayan calendar, to indigenous First Nations prophecy converges on cataclysmic earth changes accompanying a transition of earth into a millennial society. Analysis of Nostradamus prophecy reveals that "terrible new weapons," with characteristics similar to EM weapons, caused the cataclysmic earth changes he foresaw.
The threat of cataclysmic earth changes caused by secret EM warfare is not occurring in a vacuum. Extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI for short) may be signaling a positive initiative to integrate us into interplanetary society. However, a clandestine command and control network and mentality on our planet appears to be waging clandestine mass psychological warfare (psywar) against the ETI initiative. EM weapons, developed for use against ETI overflights, may also be part of this war to block humanity from participating in the ETI initiative.
How to Avoid Coming Earth Changes
A key to human success is deconstruction of the clandestine network promoting warfare against the human population. EM weapons and the anti-ETI war require deception and secrecy.
EARTH CHANGES proposes a public, mobilized, decade-long human effort to curb EM weapons, as well as our open community participation with ETI in our integration into organized universe society. EARTH CHANGES identifies deployment of electromagnetic (EM) weapons as a possible cause of cataclysmic millennial earth changes predicted by psychics and prophetic tradition. No near term cataclysmic earth activity is forecast by the earth sciences. However, EM weapons can devastate the ionosphere and magnetic bands around the earth, causing cataclysmic upheaval in the earth’s tectonic plates. EARTH CHANGES explores a dramatic new approach to avoid prophesized cataclysm by curbing the development of EM warfare.

Earth Changes, Prophecy & Environmental Weapons
Chapter One - Earth Changes
Here I share with you a radical vision about Gaia, the living being Earth. Massive Earth changes have been prophesized for our generations by modern psychics and the prophets of tradition since time immemorial. The predicted Earth changes include cataclysmic earthquakes around the world, emergence of new land masses, and the subsidence of existing land masses – including entire nations – under deep waters of the seas.
Cataclysmic Earth changes may or may not come to pass, we do not know enough about the future to say with certainty. The density and vulnerability of modern human society make it likely that future earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, weather events and climate shifts may cause vast trauma and damage to stricken towns, cities, settlements, economies.
Yet the predictive capabilities of the Earth sciences (catastrophic geology; seismology; vulcanology; climatology) give little indication that Earth changes of cataclysmic proportions are about to occur on Earth.
Earth science analysis reveals no trend, evidence, or sign that cataclysmic Earth changes are about to occur. A trend analysis of the full database of the United States Geological Service and the National Earthquake Information Service does not reveal that large scale Earth changes are at hand.
There may be higher casualty tolls and property damage in earthquakes of the last two decades of the century, yes. That may be because of higher population density, vulnerability of infrastructure, and substandard construction. As a January 1999 Richter 6.0 earthquake in Colombia taught us, it is the human factors – social chaos and rebellion; mass looting; failures of government planning and organization – that cause the consequential damages in modern earthquakes.
So just how, where and when are prophesized cataclysmic Earth changes supposed to occur?
Let me state the possibility – succinctly. Earth changes of cataclysmic scale could occur with the reversal or distortion of the Sun’s magnetic field at the end of a 26,000-year cycle predicted by the Mayan calendar for a time window around December 22, 2012.
Human environmental weapons – based on electromagnetic (EM) energy – could significantly help trigger these prophesized earth changes.
Along with earth changes, the Mayan prophecies foresee an era of cosmic consciousness, accompanying our solar system’s entering into synchrony with electromagnetic beam-waves emanating from the core (“Sun”) of our Galaxy. The 26,000-year cycle of galactic electromagnetic beams is both the physical agency of prophesied Earth changes, and the psychic vehicle for humanity’s conscious evolution.
Cataclysmic Earth changes could occur if the gigantic tectonic plates that form a constantly moving jigsaw puzzle on the surface of the Earth were suddenly to shift. If the tectonic shifts were massive enough, new landmasses could appear on the surface of the Earth; other landmasses could subside into the oceans; massive volcanism could happen.
Most Earth scientists would say that cataclysmic Earth changes could never happen in our modern era, although they may have happened in the past. One theory is that the K-T event of 65 millions years ago occurred because of a collision by a meteorite with Earth. Under this theory, the K-T collision created a global dust screen that ultimately killed most large life forms, including the dinosaurs. Other theorists claim the K-T event was caused by gigantic volcanism, with the same evolutionary result - extinction.
Whether the K-T event was utter coincidence or the product of a living, intelligent universe, the result remains the same. Massive Earth changes were an evolutionary intervention, an extinction-level event for the dinosaurs and other life, drastically changing the course of evolution on Earth.
We come full circle to psychic predictions and traditional prophecies about Earth changes, occurring in Earth’s transition to a new era. There is no sign in the trends of Earth science that Earth changes of cataclysmic proportions will occur in our age.
So are the precognitions of high psychics such as Edgar Cayce and Nostradamus simply empty, meaningless or wrong?
Are the multiple prophetic traditions, ranging from Old and New Testament prophets to ancient indigenous peoples simply groundless and misguided?
In a word, no.
If we look to the Earth sciences alone to give us direction and answers about possible cataclysmic Earth changes, we are looking to the wrong sources.
We should be looking to the para-science of the Mayan calendar.
We should be looking to the weapons and strategies of environmental warfare, theoretically outlawed by a 1977 United Nations treaty, and in fact, now the leading edge of strategic warfare. We should be looking into the science of advanced Environmental warfare – electromagnetic weapons; weather and climate warfare. These are perversions, in some deep way, of the pure Earth sciences.
We should be looking at the environmental impacts of electromagnetic (EM) weapons on the ecology of the Earth.
All-out spasm warfare by environmental weapons can in fact trigger changes in the Earth’s ecology that could result in Earth changes of cataclysmic proportions. Environmental weapons can impact the Earth’s magnetic fields that in delicate balance mediate the slow movements of Earth’s tectonic plates. These movements could be of a magnitude and character to throw Earth’s tectonic plates into massive, chaotic movements, and thus to bring about Earth changes of unprecedented scale.
The new generation of electromagnetic weapons is now in early development. Yet even the current pilot environmental weapon projects in such disparate geographical locations as Australia and Alaska, have, by some responsible observers, brought massive earthquakes and created weather anomalies. As their development advances, under the seal of military secrecy, these weapons may achieve ecological impacts of such scale as to trigger the type of Earth changes that the modern psychic and traditional prophets have foretold.
Mixing K-T extinction level events, psychic precognition of Earth changes, and electromagnetic weapons systems may strike you as unmitigated catastrophism, far-fetched and unrelated in any meaningful way.
So let’s restate the hypothesis: Environmental weapons, if unchecked, can potentially and ultimately trigger Earth changes of the magnitude of an extinction level event, thus fulfilling the psychic prophecies and traditions that predict Earth changes for our age. Environmental weapons may accelerate the Earth-changes potential of prophesized, vast distortions of the Sun’s electromagnetic fields.
A quarter century ago, in The Age of Cataclysm , I predicted large-scale Earth changes in our near term planetary future. Mine was one of a half-dozen or so then contemporary books on the impending Earth catastrophe. Its original vision of Earth changes was based on the evidence of the Earth sciences, as well as the paranormal sciences. I concluded our generation might experience Earth changes of cataclysmic proportions.
So let’s revisit our original peering into the future of the Earth, re-examining its sources and its vision in light of the evidence on intervening years. Our new conclusions may in many ways be more challenging than the old.
We now know – which we did not know then – that a new generation of secret electromagnetic (EM) weapons systems could trigger Earth changes of catastrophic dimensions. One of the weapons can turn the Earth’s ionosphere into a virtual global strategic weapon. If mankind does carry out war using these new weapons, catastrophic Earth changes can be triggered, and our present civilization and ecology decimated. On the other hand, if these weapons are recognized as even more destructive than nuclear weapons, there is a chance to build a consensus and international agreements banning their use. The choice is up to our species, collectively. A change of consciousness among human civilization away from conflict and toward cooperation and oneness may be literally necessary for survival.
One central source of the original vision of future Earth changes was the Earth sciences. The Earth sciences show that our planet and its resident species have evolved in key aspects through catastrophic change; and that catastrophic change is certainly possible in our age.
We now know of the K-T event, holding that the extinction of the dinosaurs was caused by a greenhouse effect brought on by global volcanic activity, or by the impact of a meteor along the southern Gulf of Mexico, approximately 65 millions years ago. The clouds of dust from the impact of the meteor cloud spread around the Earth for the next several years, killing off vegetation, and the dinosaur species. So cataclysm can happen on this planet, and has affected the planet and the evolution of species in the past.
Since my original vision, the Earth sciences have now advanced in their ability to predict and evaluate potential future catastrophic events.
The Earth sciences predicts that at least one near K-T level event could potentially happen in the year 2028.
If you think the Earth sciences provide stable, foolproof predictions about the possibility of a cataclysmic collision with a meteor, witness the scientific flip-flopping about Asteroid 1997FX-11. My point is not that these able scientists are wrong about Asteroid 1997FX-11. Rather, the scientific dialogue, and initial media confusion around the “discovery” of 1997FX-11 illustrate that cataclysmic Earth changes are possible in our time, and predictions of cataclysmic Earth events may pop up into our planning horizons unexpectedly, suddenly, causing confusion in its wake.
On March 11, 1998, Dr. Brian G. Marsden observed that there was a very real possibility that Asteroid 1997FX-11 might collide with Earth.
“Asteroid Close-Encounter in 2028”
“Mile-wide Asteroid to Pass Closer than Moon's Orbit in 2028”
By Brian G. Marsden, NASA
11 March 1998
“Recent orbit computations on an asteroid discovered last December indicate it is virtually certain that it will pass within the moon's distance of the Earth a little more than 30 years from now. The chance of an actual collision is small, but one is not entirely out of the question.
“The asteroid, known as 1997 XF11, was discovered by Jim Scotti in the course of the Spacewatch program at the University of Arizona. This program utilizes modern electronic technology on a 36-inch telescope at Kitt Peak that was built 77 years ago.
“After the discovery observations on December 6, observations made by two Japanese amateur astronomers during the following two weeks showed that the minimum distance between the orbits of 1997 XF11 and the Earth was very small. Given also that the object was quite large as Earth-approaching asteroids go, perhaps one mile across, it was added to the list of "potentially hazardous objects" (PHAs) that need to be monitored, lest they are destined to come dangerously close to the Earth over the course of the next several centuries. There are currently 108 PHAs.
“As astronomers continued to gather data on 1997 XF11, it slowly began to become apparent that there would be a particularly close approach to the Earth in October 2028. A computation from observations spanning 60 days suggested that the miss distance would be 500 thousand miles. This distance may seem large in human terms, but it was less than had previously been predicted in advance for any other known asteroid during the foreseeable future.
“Observations made on March 3 and 4 by Peter Shelus with a 30-inch telescope at the McDonald Observatory in western Texas extended the observed arc of 1997 XF11 to 88 days. This time, the orbit computation indicated a miss distance of only 30 thousand miles from the center of the Earth; the Earth's radius is about 4 thousand miles. The time of encounter would be around 1:30 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time on Thursday, October 26, 2028. That evening the object should be visible with the naked eye. In Europe, where it would be dark by that time, the object should be a splendid sight as it moves from northwest to southeast across the sky over a couple of hours.
“There is still some uncertainty to the computation. On the one hand, it is possible that 1997 XF11 will come scarcely closer than the moon. On the other hand, the object could come significantly closer than 30 thousand miles. Further observations are necessary in order to refine the figures. It is also possible that prediscovery observations of 1997 XF11 can be located on archival photographs. Particularly favorable opportunities for recording the object would have occurred in 1990, 1983, 1976, 1971 and 1957. Ephemerides for these times are available.
“It is hoped that continuing observations will be made during the next few months. The object is starting to move into the dusk and to fade week by week. Nevertheless, it should be quite accessible for a while with large telescopes, which in addition to helping establish whether a collision in 2028 is possible, could usefully provide more definite information about the object's size.
“Further observations of 1997 XF11 should be possible with moderate-sized telescopes equipped with electronic sensors early in the year 2000. A better opportunity will occur in late 2002, when the object should be detectable with quite modest telescopes. On that occasion the closest approach will be on Halloween, but the miss distance will be a safe 6 million miles.”
Yet, on March 12, 1998, just one day after this very sobering assessment of a collision of 1997FX-11 with planet Earth, Dr. Donald K. Yeomans and Dr. Paul W. Chodas, scientists at Jet Propulsion Laboratory concluded just the opposite – that there was zero chance 1997FX-11 would collide with Earth.

“Asteroid Will Miss Earth by "Comfortable Distance" in 2028”
“Asteroid 1997 XF11 will pass well beyond the Moon's distance from Earth in October 2028 with a zero probability of impacting the planet, according to astronomers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, CA.
“The asteroid "is predicted to pass at a rather comfortable distance of about 600,000 miles (about 960,000 kilometers) in 2028," reported Dr. Donald K. Yeomans and Dr. Paul W. Chodas, JPL scientists who specialize in computing the predicted orbits of comets, asteroids, planets and other bodies in the solar system.
“Data on the asteroid from March 1990 (well before its discovery in December 1997) was integrated into the orbit calculations by Yeomans and Chodas to arrive at the distance the asteroid will pass Earth. The 1990 observations of the object were found today in the Palomar Planet Crossing Asteroid Survey conducted at Caltech's Palomar Observatory, by JPL's Eleanor Helin and Ken Lawrence and by Brian Roman, formerly of JPL.
“Even prior to the discovery of the earlier Palomar observations, however, Yeomans and Chodas had determined that the impact probability would be zero. The new calculations further underscore that conclusion, they said.”
So what was the truth about Asteroid 1997FX-11? Would 1997FX-11 collide with Earth, causing perhaps untold damage to our civilization? Or were reports of 1997FX-11 a false alarm, there being no scientific probability that cataclysmic Earth changes would result?
Being the curious type when it comes to Earth changes, I e-mailed Dr. Chodas at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory
“Dear Brian G. Marsden & Dr. Donald K. Yeomans -
“We would very much appreciate clarification as to the two
statements, re: 1997XF11 on:
“Dr. Marsden's is dated March 11, 1998 and indicates that this body may come within moon's orbit of Earth in 2028.
“Another NASA-JPL statement, dated March 12, 1998, indicates that 1997XF11 will come within 600,000 of Earth, with no possibility of collision.
“Which statement is operative? Or are both operative, with Dr. Marsden's the minority opinion?”
Dr. Chodas wrote me back. The mystery was no mystery at all. On March 12, 1998, calculations had become available for the first time, which assured that there was virtually no chance of mega-collision between FX-11 and Earth.
“Using the data available on March 11, 1998, there was a *possibility* that 1997 XF11 would come within one lunar distance of the Earth in 2028, and Dr. Marsden's statement of that day
announced this result. Our calculations confirmed Dr. Marsden's result, but we did not agree that passage within this distance was "virtually certain", as Dr. Marsden stated. Our calculations
performed that day indicated further that there was virtually *no chance* that the asteroid would hit the Earth, which was in disagreement with the implication in Dr. Marsden's statement
that an impact was a distinct possibility.
“On March 12, new data became available which allowed much more precise calculations of the orbital trajectory. Using this data, Dr. Yeomans and I determined that the asteroid would pass the
Earth at the comfortable distance of about 600,000 miles in 2028, and we issued a statement which stated this result. Dr. Marsden arrived at essentially the same conclusion that day. All new
data since March 12 confirms the 600,000 mile miss distance, and all parties now agree that there is virtually no chance that the asteroid will collide with Earth in 2028.
I have no quarrel with the prediction that 1997FX –11 will probably not collide with Earth. It may not create our first cataclysmic collision in possibly 65 million years, our modern K-T event. However, there are symbolic parallels between the K-T event causing extinction of the dinosaurs and the 1997FX-11, a potential extinction challenge for humans. But in the absence of other data, I take scientists’ word for it that Earth and 1997FX-11 will not collide.
I am saying that the curious case of 1997FX-11 teaches us many things about the possibility of cataclysmic Earth changes in our era. 1997FX-11 is a scientific “close call”. We learn, then, that cataclysmic Earth changes are indeed possible.
With just a few changes in trajectory, FX-11 could have become our modern day version of the K-T event, notwithstanding 1997FX-11 was 1/6 the size of the K-T meteor. Dinosaurs did not have polluting nuclear energy, nuclear weapons, and vulnerable coastal human settlements as we humans do now– with the accompanying consequential damages. Of course we would have had to try various science fiction, questionable alternatives to avoid the cataclysm of 1997FX-11 – like nuclear warheads aimed at the meteorite.
We also learn that even where a cataclysmic Earth collision threatens, reasonable scientific minds can differ as to large cosmic and Earth events, such as 1997FX-11. The predictive capabilities of the Earth sciences are developing.
There is, however, a large margin of error in the Earth sciences as to predicting and evaluating large-scale events. In the case of 1997FX-11, the meteor’s size was estimated at 1/6th the size of the meteor that had extincted the dinosaurs; the potential effects of an Earth collision could be cataclysmic. Yet we had no stable scientific prediction as to 1997FX-11’s trajectory for several months.
An underlying premise of the Age of Cataclysm has been vindicated by events in the intervening years – specifically by the 1997FX-11 scare. The over-all significance of the 1997FX-11 episode: sudden and unexpected cataclysmic Earth Changes cannot be ruled out. And the Earth sciences may not necessarily currently possess the predictive technology to let us know with certainty when and where specific potential cataclysmic Earth changes may take place.
. Well, if cataclysmic Earth changes have happened in the distant past and can happen at any time in the near or distant future, let’s address a second core premise of our original vision.
Will cataclysmic Earth changes happen in our era and, if so, when?
And, what if the triggers for cataclysmic Earth changes do not lie in collisions with celestial bodies, which astronomical science can predict so well?
What if the trigger for cataclysmic Earth changes is a hyper-secret weapons system that can throw the ionosphere and plate tectonics of the Earth into imbalance?
In the case of environmental weapons, because the very triggers of Earth changes are military secrets, it could well be that the Earth sciences would be totally incapable of predicting changes. Earth scientists are by and large totally ignorant of these systems. A few have evaluated environmental weapons’ effect on the ecology of Earth. Many of these scientists are open-minded. Others are consultants employed by the military, and have already engaged in the cover-up of their effects on the ionosphere and associated Earth systems.
Earth science did, in fact, make a bone fide attempt to predict the danger of cataclysm in the 1997FX-11 episode. It may not be an unbiased intervention, however, on their part, to evaluate Earth changes triggered by environmental weapons.
Earth sciences research projects in the United States of America are largely funded by US government agencies. It is unlikely that Earth sciences research that could potentially cripple an entire new generation of secret strategic weapons will be meaningfully funded. The influential Washington Post, as recently as 1998, continued to report on the HAARP weapons system, under its military disinformation cover story, that HAARP was only a research project on the Aurora Borealis. (italics: mine)
The short-term picture does not look very good that the Earth sciences establishment: unless it is mobilized and reconstructed with an awareness of Environmental warfare, it will not be able to come to our aid and evaluate the risk of Earth changes triggered by global war with electromagnetic weapons.
And what if the over-all electromagnetic field predisposing cataclysmic Earth changes is caused by a cyclical reversal of the Sun’s magnetic field, based on a galactic activity cycle that is 26,000 years long?
The Earth sciences do not yet know how to evaluate such a possibility.
That knowledge is now found within the Mayan calendar and other advanced tools of ancient civilizations which based their science not on the Sun, but on the Galaxy. Earth sciences have only a rudimentary understanding of the galactic density waves that are responsible, for example, for the creation of our Sun. Science is no where near the sophisticated understanding of the cyclically based behavior of
Galactic beam-waves that the Maya evidently had.
The supportive evidence for coming Earth changes in my original vision was sourced not only in the Earth sciences, but also in the science of consciousness and parapsychology.
The original vision documented the Earth sciences trends and potential for destructive earthquakes, tsunami, and volcanic eruption destroying or damaging human settlements around the world. Since the original vision, the science of earthquake prediction has improved; we now know that active faults still threaten densely populated areas of the world, all along active tectonic plates.
With increased seismicity and vulnerable urbanization in earthquake-prone regions, major earthquakes could catastrophically destroy cities in China, Japan, and South America, the western and eastern United States, Canada, and parts of Europe. Moreover, known high risk, seismic areas that experience earthquakes could result in the damage or destruction of nuclear weapons facilities or nuclear power plants; releasing radioactivity into the air and escalating into even higher levels of catastrophe. Risk assessments of these scenarios have been made within the confines of the Earth sciences, and environmental impact assessments.
But somehow, these possible catastrophes, each destructive to human life, families, dwellings, economies, and each predictable by the Earth sciences, do not seem cataclysmic i.e., Earth Changes of a species order of magnitude, affecting the future of the human species itself.
So where did the Age of Cataclysm look for its evidence that cataclysmic Earth changes could occur in our lifetimes?
The original vision sourced information from the then emerging science of parapsychology, paraphysics, and consciousness. The intervening years have deepened our understanding of the nature of human consciousness. Reality is provably multi-dimensional and one can accurately know things outside of the three-dimensional world we perceive with our senses. Some recent scientific models hold that humans subconsciously and psychically continually scan for information from the future and the past. Those humans who have a provable and reliable access to information about the future or the past we call “psychics.” Psychics have the ability of precognition, or knowing of events before they occur in our dimension of time.
The vision of cataclysmic Earth changes was based, in part, on predictions made by psychics who had a high track record for accurate predictions in other realms, such as healing or politics.
The principal psychic used was Edgar Cayce, who left behind a detailed set of predictions about Earth changes. Cayce envisioned an era of cataclysmic Earth changes many of which he specifically predicts. Each of the predicted changes is plausible scientifically. The order of magnitude of the predicted changes is what is startling and puzzling.
On the North American continent, Cayce predicts the destruction of cities on the West Coast (Los Angeles and San Francisco), and the emptying of the Great Lakes into the Gulf of Mississippi, and the destruction of New York. In Asia, he predicts the falling of Japan into the ocean, and the dispersal of its population. In Europe he predicts that England will largely likewise be submerged by the sea, and that earthquakes will destroy Northern Europe. As a culmination, Cayce predicts that the Earth will turn on its axis, so that formerly frigid areas are tropical.
Each of these predictions is seismically and geologically plausible; and comparable Earth changes of this magnitude have happened in the past. What has remained a puzzle is what causes these cataclysmic events, and when might they occur.
Would cataclysm be brought on a sudden, unexpected meteor, like 1997FX-11, on a collision course with Earth? Well, it appears that a possible close collision by a meteor in 2028 has been averted. Barring changes, the meteor will pass more than 600,000 miles from Earth, twice the distance to our moon.
Would cataclysm be caused by a sudden massive change in the tectonic plates, brought on by processes within the Earth system itself? There is no scientific indication now that such a massive shift within the Earth is in the making; one of such magnitude as to swing Earth’s tectonic plates as to imbalance the Earth so that it would shift on its very axis.
Where does this leave the vision of a coming age of cataclysm?
What if we were to look for the cause of possible Earth changes, not in nature, but in mankind itself? What if mankind, through some perversion of technology, could accidentally or intentionally destroy a crucial balance of the ecology and set into motion the very Earth changes that would destroy human civilization?
As we now can surmise, the forces of nature may not at all trigger the coming Earth changes. The Earth changes may be caused by the technology of mankind itself.
Once again, let us state the answer to the puzzle of psychic prophecy of Earth changes. The answer to the puzzle: Coming Earth changes may be triggered by a human misuse of technology. Edgar Cayce and the other psychics who foresaw an era of cataclysmic Earth changes were telling us of changes that are brought about by a misapplication of human technology, not by the triggering processes of the Earth itself or meteors on a collision course with Earth.
The psychics and the prophets were generally looking at outcomes – earthquakes and Earth changes – and not at causes – Environmental weapons.
If mankind itself is the cause of coming Earth changes, we can expect to find further insight and confirmation of this possibility, as before, both from the Earth sciences and from realm of precognition. This new insight and information was not available to the original vision, and only came into being in the 1990s.
Yet the new information provides a crucial piece in understanding why, how and when Earth changes may occur in our era.
So let’s proceed to evaluate the possible environmental impacts of a new generation of secret electromagnetic (EM) strategic weapons. Environmental weapons, now replacing nuclear arsenals as the weapons systems of the future, if misapplied, may be the trigger of the process of cataclysmic Earth changes.
Electromagnetic weapons are based upon creating charged electromagnetic energy, of varying frequencies according to use, and directing onto a target of choice. Some of the early weapons systems have use extremely low frequency (ELF) waves, and have been used for population control at a distance.
The Woodpecker series of ELF weapons programs by the former Soviet Union in the 1970s directed ELF waves at key brain-wave rhythms at US West Coast cities such as Eugene, Oregon, with the objectives of inducing mind-altering fear or ill health effects in the population.
Since then, these tactical electromagnetic weapons have grown into strategic weapons systems, capable of monitoring global missile activity; inducing population control in continent-size areas, and causing destructive effects against an enemy target ultimately at the scale of nuclear weapons. Electromagnetic weapons systems are becoming the strategic weapon of the future, replacing nuclear weapons for a number of perceived reasons. All major players on the global weapons scene are developing environmental weapons systems. Weapons systems are developed either by individual nations, or by cooperatives of nations.
One prominent electromagnetic weapons system of the US is HAARP (for High-frequency Active Aural Research Project), located in a remote region of Alaska. Started under official cover as “a study of the aurora borealis,” HAARP is, in fact, a secret attempt to make the ionosphere into a strategic weapon itself. The results could be cataclysmic.
HAARP is intended to super-heat the ionosphere by using impulses of electromagnetic energy. The concept is to turn the ionosphere, a 600-mile thick band of electrons surrounding the Earth, into a global antenna for detecting missile and other hostile activity anywhere on Earth. According to some critics, HAARP can also be used as a global population control weapon, directing electromagnetic impulses at target population on certain brain-wave frequencies to induce fear, apathy, and other mind-states.
Environmental impact and Earth sciences analysis of HAARP indicates that this weapon system may set off the very sort of processes in the delicate atmospheric and magnetic ecology of the Earth that could induce large-scale Earth changes. These include super-heating of the ionosphere and consequent twisting and distortion of electromagnetic fields surrounding the Earth. The twisting of Earth’s electromagnetic fields may induce a tilt in the surface Earth tectonic processes, inducing tectonic shifts and earthquakes. The electromagnetic energy could also induce resonant frequencies in the upper Earth, triggering earthquakes.
Although HAARP is, as the 20th century closes, in its development and testing stages, in some ways, HAARP is like the Manhattan Project undertaken by the Allies in World War II to develop nuclear weapons. HAARP has been undertaken in extreme secrecy, in the name of future security. The difference between the two is that the secrecy around HAARP is designed to keep the world’s populations ignorant of the next generation of weapons. For if world public opinion were to know of the drastic consequences of a war fought with electromagnetic weapons, it is likely that the same grass-roots forces which threw cruise missiles out of Europe would stop HAARP as well.
There is a core body of precognitive material that solidly links mankind’s use of electromagnetic weapons to coming Earth changes. Both the paranormal and the Earth sciences support an analysis that the new generation of electromagnetic weapons may cause large scale and cataclysmic Earth changes.
The precognitive material in question is derived from the quatrains of Michel de Notredame (1503-1566), known as Nostradamus. An erudite, complex, man who lived his adult life as adviser and physician to the King and Queen of France, Nostradamus composed a series of prophetic quatrains. These quatrains were often couched in coded language in order to avoid the censorship of the Inquisition, of which he was a target. The quatrains were expressions of precognitive visions Nostradamus had in his private study. Some of the quatrains are remarkable, as when he actually names Louis Pasteur, his accomplishments, and subsequent discrediting several hundred years before Pasteur’s birth.
The focus of Nostradamus’ quatrains is principally his precognition of human politics, power and war. One whole section of the quatrains relates to the Twentieth Century. Certain quatrains may foretell the rise of Adolph Hitler, whom he refers to as the “second antichrist”, or global totalitarian leader. Other quatrains psychically predict the rise of Napoleon Bonaparte, referred to as the “first antichrist”. These quatrains also foretell a period of Earth changes and war in the late twentieth and early twenty-first century, referred to as the “times of trouble.”
In one remarkable, psychically channeled interpretation of the Nostradamus quatrains, the channeled entity is allegedly Nostradamus himself, amplifying on the inner meanings of his own prophecies. The interpretation emphasizes that the times of trouble are to occupy roughly the first three decades of the twenty-first century, and may be characterized by social unrest, famine, mass death, and global warfare by sides battling for and against a “third antichrist.” This interpretation appears to be consistent with Nostradamus quatrains.
The times of trouble may also be, according to the quatrains, a time of cataclysmic Earth changes, in which the map of the globe will hardly be recognizable by those of us alive now.
In almost each and every instance of a quatrain that relates to Earth changes, Nostradamus indicates new and terrible weapons, and the miscalculations as to the impact on the environment that they will bring about.
Time appears to be a component of varying accuracy in psychically predicted Earth events. For example, some of the dates which psychic Edgar Cayce assigns to major Earth changes have already passed. One useful hypothesis is to think in terms of generations of twenty-five years or so, rather than specific years.
In this sense, the generation which experiences the times of trouble Nostradamus foresees corresponds roughly in time and magnitude with the period of Earth changes described by Edgar Cayce. Both describe New York being destroyed in a war. Both Nostradamus and Edgar Cayce describe the same magnitude of cataclysmic Earth changes as one outcome of this period.
While Edgar Cayce does not specify what the cause of Earth changes will be, Nostradamus does. It is the effect of new and terrible weapons that trigger the Earth changes. The Earth sciences critique of electromagnetic weapons including HAARP shows that operation of the weapons may trigger large-scale Earth changes.
Does science and psychic prediction converge in Earth changes triggered by environmental weapons?
Both public interest science and psychic prediction may telling us that, if Environmental weapons are deployed in global, anti-population wars, cataclysmic Earth changes may be triggered, and effect the future of the human species as a whole.
The Nostradamus quatrains also may have an underlying positive message. The message is that humanity can actually choose the future it wants. We can choose as a species to have a suicidal global war. By the same token, we can choose an alternative future. We can stop electromagnetic weapons; we can engender the grass-roots support against war and conflict; we can bypass a suicidal stage of warfare among mankind.
In a way, the Edgar Cayce and Nostradamus precognitions of Earth changes and global conflict function as a warning, of a future that could come if mankind does not shift away from conflict to a consciousness of the oneness of creation.
What we are beginning to learn here bears repeating, because it may be cognitively dissonant to what one normally hears, in public policy circles, in psychic circles, in media, even in military circles.
Coming Earth changes may be avoided by stopping the development and use of electromagnetic weapons. Or, as a positivist would say, if we develop and use environmental weapons, we may trigger Earth changes, and this must be avoided.
Halting Environmental weapons, and forestalling Earth changes, means raising grass-roots consciousness of the consequences of global Environmental warfare. Stopping the development and use of electromagnetic weapons will require holding public and military decision-makers accountable.
There are inexorable forces of nature at work, which in the end may moot these attempted interventions by human military organizations to make war utilizing the Earth’s basic bio-systems as weapons. Surprise! Starting in the time-window of 1998-2001, the Earth is coming into alignment with the core of the Galaxy – the center of its giant spiral arms. The Galactic core is a pulsating electromagnetic for the organism that is the Milky Way galaxy, dominating it in the same manner as our Sun dominates our solar system.
This galactic alignment is a prelude to Mayan end-cycle due to occur in a time-window around December 22, 2012 AD. For the first time in 26,000 years Earth now moves into the electromagnetic energy fields of the galactic beam-waves. It was these galactic beams that gave birth to our Sun 4.55 billion years ago. The same Galactic beams may trigger gross disturbances or a reversal of the Sun’s magnetic fields. In turn, these magnetic disturbances on the Sun may twist and distort the electromagnetic fields of the Earth, causing a tilt of the Earth’s surface and tectonic plates – and cataclysmic Earth changes.
The prophesized Mayan age of Earth changes and of new cosmic consciousness may start, imploding the very structure of a war-fixated human civilization.
Chapter Two - Parapsychology and Earth Sciences
Let’s get grounded now. Grounded in our understanding of the delicate balances that hold together the interactive bands of atmosphere and moving surfaces of our planet. The same scientific insights that developed electromagnetic weapons also tell how environmental weapons might throw our Earth out of kilter.
I am not an Earth scientist, but perhaps the ability to create and manipulate chains of logic is common both to generic analytical thinking and the science of our planet. Or maybe systems thinking trains the mind in the marshalling of arguments, the creation of legal briefs in the guise of scientific argument. I tell myself I am carrying forward in a classic tradition, rushing in where your ordinary geologist or seismologist might fear to tread.
Earth science is really all about systems thinking. Think of the Earth as a single system, a functioning spaceship carrying us round and round in space, and it will be easier for your mind. Just like a spaceship, each Earth system - atmosphere, tectonic plates, magnetic bands - interacts and depends upon the other.
It used to be scientific gospel, back in Sir Charles Lyell’s time (a father of modern geology who lived in 1797-1875), that Earth was so large and geologic evolution so gradual that Earth cataclysm never took place. That gospel is no longer held to be scientific truth. Now we have come to accept that geologic cataclysm has happened and may happen in the future.
Not only that, modern Earth sciences have even gotten into the cosmic cause-and-effect game. Case in point – the apparent correlation between storms on the surface of the Sun, and wars, accidents, revolutions, and earthquakes on Earth. Case in point – how drilling oil wells and detonating underground atomic bombs has apparently caused earthquakes. Case in point – how weather modification caused by electromagnetic fields have apparently triggered earthquakes.
Yes, changes in any one part of the Earth system can yield changes in another part of the system; changes that may be way out of line compared to the magnitude of the original cause. If one abuses the control systems of a spaceship, conceivably the spaceship could become terminally unstable and be lost, along with all its crew.
This spaceship example is an analogy of the abuse that electromagnetic weapons work on the control systems of our spaceship Earth.
Worst case scenario? Electromagnetic energy of environmental weapons systems twists and distorts the ionosphere and electromagnetic fields of the Earth. In turn, the Earth surface structures tilt, causing thrusting pressure onto the massive tectonic plates on the Earth’s surface. The moving jigsaw puzzle of tectonic plates becomes unstable. Earthquakes occur, and in the extreme case, entire landmasses shift upward and downward into the oceans. A “new”, devastated Earth comes into being.
Why do we not hear about this more in the public discourse?
That’s not an easy question to answer.
A complete answer involves taking your mind simultaneously into areas that the mind normally does not visit simultaneously – modern Earth science; psychic prediction; traditional prophecy; public interest counter-intelligence; military weapons development; extraterrestrial intelligence.
If any one’s mind should understandably balk at the surface weirdness of this exercise, please know that the counter-evolutionary forces of Earth do monitor and visit all of these disciplines and more. That is to develop an understanding and perpetrate the misunderstandings necessary to maintain what appears to be a state of permanent planetary war.
Over the last several decades, the Earth sciences have developed our comprehension of Earth dynamics. This is particularly true as regards to the emerging science of earthquake prediction, and plate tectonics - how movements in the large tectonic plates that make up the Earth’s surface cause earthquakes.
The revolution in the Earth sciences is comparable to the revolution in quantum physics earlier this century. Science has now developed models of the Earth’s behavior that permit the analysis of Earth’s cycles over geologic ages, as well as the prediction of future Earth events and trends.
Earth sciences have furthered our knowledge of the workings of plate tectonics. Plate tectonics recognizes that the surface of the Earth is composed of twenty or so large inverted curved plates, causing the continents to drift and the ocean floors to constantly renew themselves. The science of plate tectonics has led to the integration of Earth science sub-groups which were formerly independent disciplines: catastrophic geology, geophysics, paleontology, geochemistry, hydrology, geodesy, oceanography, geography, and seismology.
Plate tectonic theory provides strong evidence of a single relatively recent landmass composed of South America, Africa, India, Australia, and Antarctica. The primitive continent – known as Gondwanaland – existed as recently as 150 million years ago, these modern continents fitting together like a giant jigsaw puzzle. Eventually, with the breakup of Gondwanaland into five drifting continents, came the formation of mountain ranges and land bridges. The Himalayas, for example, are thought to be the result of a collision of the Indian subcontinent – then drifting eastward on a single tectonic plate – with Asia.
Plate tectonic theory has restructured our views about how the Earth’s landmasses and oceans developed, and about the evolution and migration of numerous forms of plant and animal life. Importantly, the study of plate tectonics has given us a deeper understanding of the origins and mechanisms of earthquakes – potentially the most catastrophic of Earth disturbances.
Changes in the Earth’s inner dynamics and in its climate systems are, the Earth sciences tell us, the product of vast and continual interactions among natural forces. The forces include major celestial bodies – the Sun, the Moon, and the planets – that in their shifting juxtapositions exert strains on the Earth’s mass, its ocean, and its atmosphere.
Within the sphere formed by the Earth and its atmosphere, there is also continual interplay. Tectonic plates on the surface of the Earth shift and cause strain to build within the mass of the Earth. This strain seeks outlet, expending itself as earthquake or volcanic eruption. Volcanic eruptions can, in turn, spew vast quantities of dust into the atmosphere, cloaking the light of the Sun and causing climatic distortion, and create large areas of drought or flood about the surface of the Earth.
Earthquakes have historically been among the most devastating levelers of humankind and its settlements. The losses in Asian Earthquakes, some occurring long before industrial society, are legendary: 830,000 dead in Shensi, China in 1556; 300,000 dead in Calcutta, India in 1737; 180,000 dead in Kansu, China in 1920; 143,000 dead in Tokyo and Yokohama, Japan in 1923. Other regions have also suffered devastation in major Earthquakes: 60,000 dead in Lisbon, Portugal in 1755; 75,000 dead in Messina, Italy in 1908; 66,794 dead in Huaraz, Peru in 1970.
In North America, the United States has experienced a number of major earthquakes in the course of the past 300 years. Some major earthquakes have occurred in the Northeast, Midwest, and Southeast, not areas normally associated with earthquakes. In 1663, an earthquake felt over two million square miles, occurred in the New York-St. Lawrence area. Major earthquakes occurred in Boston, Massachusetts in 1755; along the Mississippi valley in 1811 and 1812; at Charleston, South Carolina in 1886. In the seismically active West, major earthquakes occurred in California in 1857, 1872, and 1906.
With the exception of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake, the United States has been fortunate in escaping major death tolls from earthquakes. Major earthquakes have taken place in the sparsely settled areas of the last two centuries, and at times of day that minimized danger to human lives. Were the same geographic areas to experience major earthquakes today, the loss to human life and property could well be catastrophic.
Although its dominant theories trace their origins to classical Greece, seismology – the study of earthquakes – is a relatively young science. With the introduction of quantitative methods, seismology has concentrated on understanding the mechanisms of earthquakes, and on development of reliable earthquake prediction.
Most natural earthquakes find their source in the accumulation of strain in the Earth’s interior. This strain is the result of the slow convective movement of the massive tectonic plates covering its surface. Earthquakes may be caused by dilatancy – massive cracking of interior rock within the Earth in response to the accumulation of tectonic strain. The energy release by an earthquake reflects an abrupt easing of accumulated strain. Shear waves within the Earth and compression waves along the surface of the Earth accompany the earthquake.
The processes building up to an earthquake may take centuries. There are identifiable precursors on which modern earthquake prediction models are based.
Some of the models focus on dilatancy – the network of cracking in subterranean rock which appears well before the triggering of an earthquake.
The precursory period before an earthquake is accompanied by a number of observable changes in several phenomena that accompany dilatancy. There are specific deformations in the tilt of the Earth’s surface; increases in the electrical conductivity of the ground, and marked changes in the chemical composition of ground water in an earthquake area. Other seismic indicators – the velocity of local Earth waves, the level of subliminal trembling of the Earth, the configuration of interior Earth stresses – follow measurable patterns prior to an earthquake.
Together these factors can give a relatively precise indication of the time and intensity of a coming earthquake. Generally, the greater the magnitude of a coming earthquake, the larger the warning time for the earthquake. A minor earthquake may be known days or weeks in advance. A major earthquake may be predicted years in advance, within a range of time. The earthquake prediction techniques are far from perfected. In a retroactive application of the prediction technique, scientists found that they could have successfully predicted the destructive 1971 San Fernando, California Earthquake three and a half years in advance, had the prediction method been available to them.
Most of the planet’s earthquakes are concentrated along a small number of belts corresponding roughly to the boundaries between the huge tectonic plates forming the surface of the Earth. The collisions and convective motions of tectonic plates give rise to the stresses producing earthquakes. The largest of the seismic hot zones, the Circum-Pacific belt, includes the entire rim of the Pacific Ocean, from South America through Central America, western North America, to Japan and the Philippine Islands. Another major Earthquake belt cuts through the Himalayas and the Mediterranean to the Azores in the Atlantic Ocean. A third Earthquake belt cuts through the Mid-Atlantic Ridge to the Antarctic and around the southern tip of Africa into the Indian Ocean.
Many of the countries along the seismic belts are highly vulnerable to major earthquakes. Japan, for example, lies at the boundary of two massive tectonic plates, one of which is being thrust under the other. The entire country is crisscrossed with active earthquake faults. Most of the landmasses along the Circum-Pacific are similarly vulnerable to major earthquake activity, from South America up through Central America and the western coast of North America (the United States, Canada, and Alaska). Of particular concern is a possible future catastrophic earthquake in California.
The exact time, duration and intensity of large-scale earthquakes, such as a future catastrophic California Earthquake are not yet predictable. Some estimates of the possible impact of such a catastrophic earthquake have run as high as 1,000,000 dead, if the earthquake were to originate between San Francisco and Los Angeles and devastate both cities. Other estimates foresee the possible loss of human life at between 10,360 and 100,000 dead.
Deep-focus earthquakes tend to strike the interior of a landmass or nation.
For example, the major earthquakes that have historically occurred in the eastern part of the United States are thought to be caused by strain accumulated along the
junction of the Pacific Ocean plate and the North American plate. Increased strain in the faults along the coast of California in turn may tend to aggravate inner Earth strains in the eastern United States.
A standard seismic risk map of the United States lists the following states as areas of maximum seismic risk and vulnerability to earthquake - West: California, Nevada, northwest Washington State; Central: Area 1 - Montana, Wyoming, Idaho, and Utah; Area 2 – Missouri, Tennessee, Illinois, and Kentucky;
East: Charleston, SC; Boston, Mass; and the New York-St. Lawrence area.
One assessment concludes that the potential for damage to property and loss of life is as great in the eastern United States, as on its West Coast. The crust of the landmass of the eastern United States is relatively rigid. Earthquakes of a high magnitude would be felt over a wider area than along its western coast, where the Earth’s crust is heavily fractured.
For example, in the eastern North American land mass, the St. Lawrence Earthquake of 1663 (Mercalli intensity 12) was felt all over eastern Canada and northeastern United States. The Canadian Earthquake of 1870 (Mercalli intensity 8) was felt over 1,000,000 square miles. The Missouri Earthquake of 1811 (Mercalli intensity 12) was felt over an area of 2,000,000 square miles. The Charleston, SC Earthquake of 1886 (Mercalli intensity 10) was felt over the area of 2,000,000 square miles. By contrast, the largest western Earthquake, the San Francisco Earthquake of 1906 (Mercalli intensity 11) was felt over 375,000 miles.
Earth sciences have also taught us much about volcanoes. The amount of energy released in a single large volcanic eruption is staggering. The 1983 Krakatua eruption in the South Pacific released approximately 10 to the 25th ergs of energy, more than the average total energy released by all earthquakes around the globe in a single year, spewing volcanic dust into the atmosphere. A fourfold increase in the present concentration of volcanic dust in the atmosphere could decrease temperatures by 3 to 5 degrees Celsius, and could bring about an Ice Age if concentrations persisted for a number of years.
One major finding is that volcanic activity appears to have a substantial effect on the Earth’s climate. In past epochs, major shifts in climate have been the result of volcanic dust speed into the atmosphere by volcanic eruptions. One alternative theory for the K-T extinction event 65 million years ago is that high volcanic activity brought about a greenhouse effect on the planet, causing the extinction of the dinosaurs.
Volcanic eruptions spew large amounts of dust into the upper atmosphere. The dust enters a network of atmospheric wind current, and is distributed around the Earth. These dust particles in turn act as a screen reflecting incoming sunlight back into space, lowering the average temperature of the Earth. As the dust particles gradually drift to the surface of the Earth, they tend to seed rainfall in the process.
Do the Earth sciences give any evidence that cataclysmic Earth changes may be upon us? Twenty-five years ago, my original cataclysmic vision concluded that the Earth was then experiencing an increase in major earthquakes and volcanic activity, itself often a precursor of earthquake. Examination of recent and current trends in Earthquakes and volcanic activity does not confirm evidence of cataclysmic earth changes – in the form of rising and subsiding landmasses, shifting Earth axes or magnetic pole reversals.
The irony is that this lack of evidence is not due to the advanced state of the Earth sciences. It is due, rather, to its blinders – science cannot begin to consider that galactic cycles and environmental warfare may be the cause of coming Earth changes, much less measure risk and vulnerability analysis.
There is mixed evidence to show that the Earth experienced an increase in earthquakes and volcanic activity during the twelve-year period 1987-1998. The annual number of great or major earthquakes during these years was about the same as the average annual number of great or major earthquakes observed since 1900. If anything, the annual number of great and major earthquakes during 1987-1998 was probably lower than the century’s average.
Ominously, nuclear testing, with its release of highly charged electromagnetic energy into the atmosphere, may be a prime cause of increased seismic activity. Nuclear weapons, thus, can be considered an environmental weapon, and at least one country has tried tectonic (earthquake) warfare using nuclear weapons as the seismic trigger.
The seismic track record is mixed, as the twin causes of Earth changes – galactic solar activity and environmental weapons – are just coming into significant play as the 21st Century begins.
Now let’s look at the global frequency of earthquakes occurring since 1900. We have had an average of one great earthquake, of Richter 8.0 or higher, every year since 1900. During the period 1987-1998, the Earth experienced an incidence of great earthquakes only two-thirds this large. Likewise, we have had an average of 18 major earthquakes, of Richter 7.0 – 7.9, every year since 1900. During the twelve years 1987-1998, the Earth experienced 13.2 major earthquakes each year. Even the annual number of light earthquakes, Richter 4.0-4.9, experienced during 1987-1998 (5088) is lower than the annual average since 1900 (6200).
There have been devastating major earthquakes during this period, to be sure. One of these was the 1989 Earthquake in the San Francisco Bay area.
Next, let us examine the trends in earthquakes over longer cycles and periods of time. Perhaps we are on the verge of a major cycle of earthquakes or Earth changes that we cannot discern from a twelve year period, but which we can discover by going back into recorded earthquake history.
If we analyze earthquake magnitudes and earthquake trend data in each of the ten earthquake data bases published by the United States Geological Service and National Earthquake Information Service, it does not appear that cataclysmic Earth changes are likely to occur in our era.
Digging further, if we examine each of these historical earthquake databases, we do not find a significant increase in the number of earthquakes around the end of the Twentieth Century and the beginning of the Twenty-First Century as compared to other times. There may be larger cycles in the occurrence of earthquakes. Some cycles of earthquakes may, for example, be influenced or triggered by large-scale conjunctions of the planets and other celestial bodies. Cataclysmic earthquakes may have occurred in past geological time.
But from the Earth sciences evidence available to us, there is no indication that large-scale Earth changes may be upon us in the near term future.
Is this because cataclysmic Earth changes are not possible?
No. It is because the predictive model that modern Earth science uses is functionally blind to galactic cycles and to human interventions like environmental warfare that can trigger Earth events.
True, the Earth sciences may be forecasting a number of great earthquakes in the near-term future, which, if they occurred, could be catastrophic. The earthquake that comes to mind is the “Great Earthquake” expected sometime in the future in California. The Earth sciences know that this earthquake will probably occur. The exact timing, location and magnitude are not known at present. This Great Earthquake may occur in the near term future; it may occur a century or more in the future.
While the Earth sciences do predict specific catastrophic earthquakes, the sciences do not predict cataclysmic Earth changes: disappearances of continents and nations under the sea; the Earth’s axis shifting. According to the Earth sciences, if future great earthquakes do occur, they may certainly be catastrophic if the worst case scenarios are played out. The Earth sciences do not predict a series of cataclysmic events, involving massive Earth changes.
Let us turn now to trends in volcanic eruptions. In past geological epochs, volcanic activity and a resulting greenhouse effect may have been responsible for large-scale species becoming extinct on the planet. There is no indication from the Earth sciences that Earth changes brought about by volcanic activity will occur on the planet in the near term future.
Let’s look at the record of major volcanic eruptions since 1500 AD. A trend analysis does not reveal imminent Earth changes brought about by increased volcanic activity. The casualties at the most recent deadly eruption were brought about by a failure of the central government of Colombia to warn the town of Nevado del Ruiz when it knew eruption was imminent. Casualties at the other two recent eruptions, Mount St. Helens, Washington and Mount Pinatubo, Philippines were relatively low. The highest death toll, that caused by Mount Tambora in 1815, Indonesia, came about by starvation in the aftermath of the eruption.
We can also examine all volcanic eruptions of a Volcanic Explosivity Index (VEI) greater than 5.0 which have occurred in the last 10,000 years to see if some trend indicating coming Earth changes can be found.
In Europe, the last volcanic eruption of major magnitude was Vesuvius in 79 AD, which decimated Pompeii. In the South Pacific and Melanesia-Australia, the last major eruptions were in 1725 and 1905 on Samoa. In Indonesia, the last major eruption was in 1883, in Krakatua. In Japan, the last major eruption was in 1914. In the Philippines, the only major volcanic eruption in the last 10,000 years was Mt. Pinatubo. In Russia, the last major volcanic eruption was in 1975. In North America, the last major eruption was in 1980, Mt. St. Helens, Washington. In Mexico, the last major eruption was in 1982 in El Chichon. In South America, the last major eruption was in Chile in 1991 at Cerro Hudson. In Iceland the last major eruption was in 1753.
From the data, there were two major volcanic eruptions on the planet in 1991 – Mt Pinatubo in the Philippines and Cerro Hudson in Chile. On a 10,000 year cycle, two 5.0 volcanic eruptions in a single year may be interpreted as a possible upturn in global volcanic activity, at least of major eruptions. There is no pattern in the record, which indicates we are on the verge of volcanism of cataclysmic proportions.
Why do not the Earth sciences forecast cataclysmic volcanism for the near term future? Because at least two potential causes of cataclysmic Earth changes brought about by volcanism are totally outside the universe of possible events considered by the Earth sciences. These potential causes are cyclical, violent galactic disruptions of the solar magnetic field, and human environmental warfare.
True again, the Earth sciences have forecast major volcanic eruptions that may have catastrophic consequences if they do occur. For example, there are premonitory signs that a volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in Italy may well occur. Vesuvius’ erupting could cause catastrophic damage and death toll to Naples, whose suburbs have spread dangerously close to the volcano's slopes.
The volcanic eruptions forecast by Earth sciences, however, do not approach cataclysmic Earth changes in scale.
As we discussed, celestial bodies (termed “near Earth objects”) have in past geologic cycles caused catastrophic Earth changes – asteroids, meteorites, or comets – colliding with Earth. The archetypal example may have been the K-T event, which may have been caused when an asteroid 6 miles across impacted in the southern Gulf of Mexico. We do not know if the K-T event, which resulted in the extinction of the dinosaurs, was caused by asteroid impact, or volcanic activity and consequent greenhouse effect of the planet.
But no celestial collisions appear to be on the horizon now, though admittedly a dangerous near Earth object could be discovered at any moment. For a brief moment, it appeared that asteroid 1997 XF11, about a mile across, would come within 30,000 miles of the Earth’s center in the year 2028, raising the probability of a collision with Earth. Current scientific opinion holds, however, that there is “virtually” no chance of 1997FX-11 colliding with Earth.
Of course, the chances of Earth colliding with near Earth objects continue to be high and unpredictable.
We have just seen how the Earth sciences do not show evidence of impending Earth changes on the planet.
So why should we be worried about cataclysmic Earth changes at all?
I do not mean the catastrophic natural disasters that are within the norm we have experienced over, say, the last 10,000 years. As to natural disasters we have come to normally expect, communities and governments in varying degrees support disaster preparedness and planning; emergency disaster relief; and the development of Earth sciences’ ability to predict Earthquake, volcanic, and tsunamis.
The Earth sciences inform us that we do not appear to be at the verge of cataclysmic Earth changes. Earth sciences predict only natural disasters along the norm we have historically experienced. These can have devastating social consequences if our infrastructure, our governments, and our social order are not prepared.
So where do we get the information that cataclysmic Earth changes may happen in our age?
We must repair to edge-of-the-envelope, out-of-the-box thinking about coming cataclysm.
For knowledge about possible Earth changes, we must go to the paranormal sciences – parapsychology and precognition. Specifically, we can examine sets of predictions about cataclysmic Earth changes made by psychics of proven accuracy.
Precognitive information is accurate information about future events which persons of psychic ability obtain other than by reason or sensory experience. Precognitive information about Earth changes has traditionally been shunned in modern Earth sciences and in public policy formulation. This oversight may be the result of social or personal taboos against psychic information; through ignorance that psychic knowledge about Earth changes even exists; or because scientists or policy makers assume psychic information to be unreliable.
The scientific validity of specific forms of paranormal phenomena is firmly established. Studies of precognition (knowledge about future events), psychokinesis (affecting physical object with the mind), and telepathy (mind to mind communication) have demonstrated the validity of each of these phenomena. Research in the field traces back to Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626), who was the first in Western science to devise experimental methods for testing paranormal cognition. Prominent western scientists have devoted part of their work to the study of the paranormal: Charcot and Richet, William James, Henri Bergson, Sigmund Freud, William McDougall, Paul Kammerer, Wolfgang Pauli, and Carl Jung. There is no rational basis for the scientific taboo against data derived from paranormal sources.
Modern research on precognition involves the application of rigorous experimental methods, often by scientists with established reputations in other fields. One series of experiments involves a subject’s accurate prediction of future events whose occurrence is determined by the theoretically unpredictable decay of a radioactive strontium 90 particle. In a series of 63,066 trials, three subjects made accurate predictions of theoretically unpredictable subatomic particles at a level above change of two billion to one. In a second series of 20,000 trials, three subjects made correct predictions of events that are unpredictable according to the law of physics, at a level of ten billion to one above chance. Experiments like the above are reported in scientific journals.
Other experimental research has focused on the personality factors that correlate closely with precognitive ability. In general, individuals who are less defensive about the output of their deeper subconscious exhibit a high degree of precognitive accuracy. They are capable of meditation relaxation and stilling the mind. Subjects achieve high psychic capacity whose personality pattern most closely fits their ego ideal. One study of hundreds of persons found that the single group with the highest precognitive accuracy was made up of corporation presidents. Within this group, those that had doubled their companies’ profits within the last five years achieved the highest precognitive ability.
Two principles can be applied in evaluating the validity of predictions made by psychics outside of experimental conditions, such as those we just reviewed.
The first is the psychic’s track record. If a psychic’s other predictions have been factually verified, there is a higher probability that a psychic's specific precognition is valid. The second has to do with the psychic’s profile. If the psychic’s personality tends to be receptive and non-defensive, there is a significant increase in the accuracy of the psychic’s precognitive abilities.
There is a wide variation in the future context and type of information that psychics will access. Individuals vary widely in what they can predict accurately, and over what time frame. The Earth changes precognitions are from psychics who have a high degree of accuracy where verified, and whose predictions span long periods of time.
Edgar Cayce (1877-1945) fits many of the profile characteristics of a high psychic. He was a professional psychic who spent his young adulthood as a salesman and photographer in the United States. His adult reading was largely limited to daily passages from bible. By all historical accounts, Cayce was a gentle, selfless, and well-adjusted man, devoted to his family and to a life of quiet meditation.
During the last forty-three years of his life, Cayce gave a prolific number of psychic trance readings, which included extensive medical diagnoses and treatments, historical and scientific readings, and predictions about the future.
By the time of his death, he had accumulated over 14,000 readings, approximately 9000 of which, were medical diagnoses and treatments of patients who sought out his aid, and most of whom he never met in person.
In his psychic readings, Cayce maintained a deep meditative trance, during which he would answer questions about the health of a patient requesting a diagnosis, or a person requesting personal or historical information.
Edgar Cayce possessed a high degree of psychic capacity. He exhibited a remarkable rate of factual accuracy in areas subject to easy verification. The overwhelming majority of his medical readings are factually accurate. While in trance, he was capable of handling a reading in foreign languages he did not understand in his waking state.
Cayce clairvoyantly detected errors that his stenographer made in writing down his readings, and corrected them while in trance. In a typical psychic reading, Cayce was given only the name and address of the patient or querent, and he would proceed to describe accurately many details of the persons medical condition, history, personality, circumstances, and future. He was able to exert considerable telepathic influence over the decisions of other persons, a capacity that he used as little as possible.
Cayce’s record of accurate diagnosis and treatment in his medical psychic readings is high, where verifiable. Documented cases of Cayce’s medical inaccuracy have been correlated his failure to maintain a positive, non-defensive attitude toward his patient.
Cayce’s scientific readings include psychic descriptions of geology and Earth processes that were not in accord with the Earth sciences of the times. Recent developments in geology have tended to render Cayce’s geological readings accurate.
Cayce’s historical psychic readings are truly prescient. One 1937 reading includes a discussion of the Essene community along the Dead Sea during the period 300 BC to 100 AD. The reading predates the discovery of the Dead Sea scrolls in 1947, which provided the first historical record of the Essene people.
In the course of his career, Cayce gave a total of sixty-five Earth event readings concerning past and future geological events. Approximately fifty Earth event readings deal with past events in the Earth’s history, covering Earth events as early as the Pliocene era (10,000,000 BC).
Fifteen of the Cayce Earth event readings concern predictions of future cataclysmic Earth changes, following a premonitory period from 1958 to 2001. The Earth changes presented in the Cayce readings are radically different from the Earth event trends predicted for the near term future by the Earth sciences.
One geologist has written that past geological events described by the Cayce readings have been rendered more probable by the revolution in the Earth sciences.
“Most of the readings on pre-historical subjects were given in the 1920s and 30s and all were on file before 1945. It is thus clear that the majority of the psychic statements antedate all of the striking discoveries made by such youth fields of scientific endeavor as deep-sea research, paleomagnetic research, and research on the absolute age of geologic materials. Whereas the results of recent research sometimes modify, or even overthrow, important concepts of geology, they often have the opposite effect, in relation to the [Cayce] psychic readings, in that they tend to render them more probable.”
The Cayce Earth changes predictions were given in the 1930s and 40s, toward the latter part of his career, and are a minor segment of his total work. Cayce’s Earth event predictions are given while in trance, and are stenographically recorded. The predictions appear interspersed with other material not related to Earth changes.
The Earth changes predictions themselves are of a general nature, outlining the dimensions and location of predicted Earth events. One doorway event is predicted to occur at a specific time. Some predicted Earth events are conditional upon the occurrence of other events. The period that could ultimately bring about cataclysmic events is predicted to begin during the time-window 1958-1998, and
accelerate, beginning in 2001. These Earth changes, when they do occur, would culminate in a shift of the axis of the Earth.
The doorway event Cayce predicted to occur at a specific time appears to have happened. Cayce predicted the discovery in 1968 or 1969 in Bimini, Bahamas, of artifacts of Atlantis, an advanced civilization destroyed in a series of Earth changes culminating about 10,000 BC. In fact, a 1969 archeological expedition to Bimini guided by the Cayce predictions discovered the ruins of ancient temple structures corresponding to the ancient civilization, presumably part of Atlantis. The ruins were lying in relatively shallow waters.
We can now examine the specific transcripts of the Cayce Earth changes predictions, given in trance readings in 1932, 1934, 1936, and 1941.
1. April 9, 1932:
QUESTION: How soon will the changes in the Earth’s activity begin to be apparent?
CAYCE: When there the first breaking up of some conditions in the South Sea (that’s South Pacific to be sure), and those as apparent in the sinking or rising of that that’s almost opposite same, or in the Mediterranean, and the Aetna area, then we may know it has begun.
QUESTION: How long before this will begin?
CAYCE: The indications are that some of these have already begun, yet others would say these are only temporary. We would say they have begun. ’36 will see the greater changes apparent, to be sure.
QUESTION: Will there be any physical changes in the Earth’s surface in North America? If so, what sections will be affected, and how?
CAYCE: All over the country, we will find many changes in the Earth’s surface of a minor or greater degree. The greater change, as we will find, in America, will be the North Atlantic Seaboard. Watch New York! Connecticut and the like.
QUESTION: When will this be?
CAYCE: In this period. As to just when….
QUESTION: What, if any changes will take place around Norfolk area, Va.?
CAYCE: No material, that would be effective to the area, other than would eventually become more beneficial – in a port and the like.
2. January 19, 1934:
CAYCE: The Earth will be broken up in many places. The early portion will see a change in the physical aspect of the West Coast of America. There will be open waters appear in the northern portions of Greenland. There will be new lands seen off the Caribbean Sea, and dry land will appear….South America shall be shaken from the uppermost portion to the end, and in the Antarctic off of Tierra del Fuego, land, and a strait with rushing waters.
3. January 19, 1934:
CAYCE: As to the changes physical again: The Earth will be broken up in the western portion of America. The greater portion of Japan must go into the sea. The upper portions of Europe will be changed as in the twinkling of an eye. Land will appear off the East Coast of America. There will be upheavals in the arctic and Antarctic that will make for the eruptions of volcanoes in the Torrid areas, and there will be the shifting then of the poles – so that where there has been those of a frigid or the semitropical will become the more tropical and moss and fern will grow. And these will begin in those periods in ’58 to ’98.
4. August 13, 1941:
CAYCE: As to the conditions in the geography of the world, of the country – changes here are gradually coming about. No wonder, then, that the entity feels the need, the necessity for change of central location. For many portions of the East Coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the West Coast, as well as the central portion of the U.S. In the next few years lands will appear in the Atlantic as well as the Pacific. And what is the coastline now of many a land will be the bed of the ocean. Even many of the battlefields of the present [August, 1941] will be ocean, will be the seas, the bays, the lands over which the new order will carry on their trade with one another.
Portions of the now East Coast of New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation, though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia – these will disappear. This will be much sooner. The waters of the [Great} Lakes will empty into the Gulf, rather than the waterway over which such discussions have been recently made. It would be well if the waterway were prepared, but not for that purpose for which it is at present being considered.
Then the area where the entity is now located [Virginia Beach] will be among the safety lands, as will be portions of what is now Ohio, Indiana, and Illinois, and much of the southern portion of Canada and the eastern portion of Canada; while the Western land – much of that is to be disturbed – in this land – as, of course, much in other lands. Then, with the knowledge of these – first the principles, then the material changes. The choice should be made by the entity itself as to location, and especially, as to the active work….
5. August 13, 1941:
QUESTION: I have for many months felt I should move away from New York City.
CAYCE: This is well, as indicated. There is too much unrest; there will continue to be the character of vibrations that to the body will be disturbing, and eventually those destructive forces there – though these will be in the next generation.
6. August 13, 1941:
QUESTION: Will Los Angeles be safe?
CAYCE: Los Angeles, San Francisco, most all of these will be among those that will be destroyed before New York even.
In addition to the trance Earth changes readings, Edgar Cayce reports having an apparent prophetic dream, on March 3, 1936. The dream occurred while Cayce was returning from Detroit by train to Virginia Beach. He had just successfully concluded court proceedings arising from his arrest in November 1935 for allegedly practicing medicine without a license.
CAYCE (Dream Report): “I had been born again in 2100 AD in Nebraska. The sea apparently covered all the western part of the country, as the city where I lived was on the coast. The family name was a strange one. At an early age as a child I declared myself to be Edgar Cayce who had lived 200 years before.
Scientists, long men with beards, little hair, and thick glasses were called in to observe me. They decided to visit the places where I said I had been born, lived and worked, in Kentucky, Alabama, New York, Michigan, and Virginia. Taking me with them, the group of scientists visited these places in a long, cigar-shaped, metal flying ship which moved at great speed.
Water covered much of Alabama. Norfolk, Virginia had become an immense seaport. New York had been destroyed either by war or an Earthquake and was being rebuilt. Industries were scattered over the countryside. Most houses were of glass.
Many records of my work as Edgar Cayce were discovered and collected. The group returned to Nebraska, taking the records with them.”
Let us assume for a moment that the Cayce predictions are accurate as to the scale, if not the details, of coming Earth changes. Two questions immediately arise: (1) What is the timing of these Earth changes? (2) What is the probable cause that would most easily account for such a cataclysmic scale of Earth changes, and can this cause be avoided?
The Earth sciences now tell us that the most probable cause of the global cataclysm described by the Cayce predictions would be a massive coordinated disruption of the system of tectonic plates about the Earth. If the Earth’s tectonic plates were violently all shifted about, a cataclysm of the sort described by Cayce would be the result. Cayce’s over-all description of the cataclysm includes massive Earth shifts taking place along inter-tectonic rims. The cataclysm also includes the appearance and disappearance of large landmasses, likely to be caused by violent tectonic movements.
A violent disruption of the tectonic plate system is likely to be caused by one or both of two forces. Forces coming from deep within the Earth could force the tectonic plates upward and against each other. Or, the tectonic plate system could be violently thrown out of balance by a disruption in the delicately balanced forces of the magnetic belts, ionosphere, and other bands of energy that help keep the Earth’s surface in balance.
As we have seen, the Earth sciences are not forecasting a disruption of the scale predicted by Cayce. In other words, on its own, the Earth does not appear to be preparing for cataclysm. We would have to find another proximate cause for the Cayce cataclysm.
Enter here electromagnetic weapons, just now being deployed. One potential environmental impact of electromagnetic weapon systems, such as HAARP, is precisely the disruption of the magnetic bands holding the Earth’s surface in balance.
Put very directly: If electromagnetic weapons become operational, there is the likelihood that they will damage the Earth’s magnetic atmosphere, and thus trigger the cataclysm Cayce foresaw.
Humankind and its weapons are the most likely cause of the cataclysm! The cataclysm can be avoided by stopping the deployment of electromagnetic weapons. It is as simple and straightforward as that.
Now just when in time will this cataclysm occur, if not prevented? Time is a relative concept in the Cayce predictions. For example, Cayce predicted a powerful Earthquake in San Francisco for 1936, when none in fact occurred. Probably the most useful approach to time is to think of the predictions as describing not precise years, but periods or an era of time; a generation or generations involved in trauma and transformation. Thus, the period 1958 to 1998 is a period during which Earth changes trends become apparent. The period described as 2001 and forward is the period during which the cataclysms or transformations can occur.
We have just seen that the most plausible proximate cause of the Earth changes predicted by Edgar Cayce is mankind’s new generation of electromagnetic weapons.
Let us now review the specific predicted Earth changes themselves. Cayce predicts at least specific ten major Earth changes. Each of these is geologically plausible. Taken together, what Cayce describes as individual Earth changes would be the result of a violent disruption of the Earth’s tectonic plate system.
1. Destructive Earthquake activity along the western coast of the United States.
2. Disappearance of the southern portions of Carolina and Georgia.
3. The disappearance of the greater portion of Japan under the sea.
4. Rapid Earth changes in the upper portion of Europe.
5. The emptying of the Great Lakes into the Gulf of Mexico.
6. The rising of new lands along the eastern coast of the United States.
7. Dramatic Earth changes along the Atlantic Seaboard, including the destruction of New York.
8. Upheavals of the Earth in the Arctic and Antarctic.
9. Volcanic eruptions in the torrid zones.
10. A shift in the axis Earth, and large-scale climatic changes.
A geological analysis of each of the predicted Cayce Earth changes concluded that the psychic information was confirmed by the Earth sciences. The analysis noted, “It is in the advocation of a very rapid acceleration of this trend that the psychic information departs from the standard geological concept of gradual change.”
In brief, the geological analysis shows that each of the predicted Cayce Earth changes is plausible.
Japan – The Cayce psychic information predicts that a substantial section of Japan will become ocean floor. The geological analysis notes the rapid subsidence of substantial portions of the Japanese landmass. This, leading in one case, to the submergence of an entire forest due to the instability of a block of the local Earth crust. The analysis further notes the high seismicity of Japan, and the location of its landmass on active faults.
Europe and the North Atlantic - The psychic information predicts rapid changes in the upper portion of Europe. Geological analysis notes evidence of significant uplift in the landmass in northern Europe. The analysis concludes that the appearance of new landmass in the northern Atlantic, an event predicted by Cayce, would produce a sudden blockage or diversion in the Gulf Stream. The blockage would cut off northern Europe from the warming influence of the Gulf Stream. Moreover, the geological analysis indicates that recent measurements of crustal upwarping in the Canadian Arctic, Spitsbergen, and Greenland show relatively rapid rates of uplift, believed due to unloading by recently vanished or presently melting ice masses.
The South Pacific – Cayce indicates that seismic activity in an area of the South Pacific diametrically opposite Mount Aetna in the Mediterranean will signal that beginning of a significant phase of Earth changes, duration unknown. The geological analysis notes that this area of the South Pacific (longitude175 degrees E and latitude 20 degrees S) is an area of great seismicity, easily susceptible to activation.
The Mediterranean – Cayce’s psychic information predicts sinking or rising of land in the Mediterranean. The geological analysis notes the rapid and unexplained drop in the level of waters along the eastern portion of the Mediterranean in the years immediately preceding 1959.
Eastern U.S. Seaboard – The psychic information predicts extensive submerging of the northeastern and southeastern seaboards of the United States. The geological analysis notes the high seismicity of the northeast and the southeast U.S., and the evidence of massive sinking of large areas adjacent to major eastern Earthquakes in the past, notably the New Madrid, Missouri Earthquake of 1811.
New Land Masses – The psychic information predicts the rising of new land masses in the Pacific, Atlantic and Caribbean. The geological analysis notes the not uncommon emergence of new landmasses after an earthquake, in many cases involving a rising or subsidence of several thousand feet. The analysis cites the emergence of landmasses off of Ecuador in 1960, and a tremendous submarine upheaval off Morocco in the Agadir Earthquake of 1960.
The Great Lakes – The Cayce information predicts the emptying of the Great Lakes into the Gulf of Mexico. The geological analysis notes the rapid degree of tilting occurring in the land mass northeast of the Great Lakes, and the consequent southwestward tilting of the lake basins. Even without a seismic disruption, the degree of tilt would cause the emptying of the Great Lakes into the Mississippi drainage system within 1600 years.
South America – The Cayce information predicts severe seismic activity the length of the South American continent. The geological analysis notes the location of South America along the boundary lines of major tectonic plates, and the Circum-Pacific belt. This seismic belt would likely be activated by a major disruption of the tectonic plate system, such as one caused by human electromagnetic weapons, or other causes.
Antarctica and Tierra del Fuego – The Cayce data predict seismic upheavals in Antarctica, the Arctic, and the appearance of land off Tierra del Fuego, South America. The geological analysis notes the occurrence of an extremely rare and large earthquake – the first such ever recorded – in the northern Magellan straits in July 1959. A rare volcanic eruption occurred off the Antarctic in December 1967, the first eruption in the area in 120 years.
Safety lands – The Cayce predictions indicate that portions of Ohio, Indiana, and southern Canada are safety lands that will be relatively stable during the period of upheavals. The geological analysis notes that these areas fall in low seismicity zones.
The Cayce material has several other specific Earth changes predictions.
One of these, made in a January 1936 trance session, dealt with the nature of earthquakes, and the interconnectedness of Earth events.
1. January, 1936
QUESTION: What is the primary cause of Earthquakes? Will San Francisco suffer from such a catastrophe this year ? If so, give date, time, and information for the guidance of this body, who has personal property, records and a wife, all of which it wishes safety.
CAYCE: We do not find that this particular district (San Francisco) in the present year will suffer the great material damages that have been experienced heretofore.
While portions of the country will be affected, we find these will be farther east than San Francisco – or those south, where there has not been heretofore the greater activity.
The causes of these, of course, are the movements about the Earth; that is internally – and the cosmic activity or influence of other planetary forces and stars and their relationships produce or bring about the activities of the elemental of the Earth; that is the Earth, the air, the fire, the water – and those combinations that make for the replacements in the various activities. If there are various activities in the Vesuvius, or Pelee, then the southern coast of California – and the areas between Salt Lake and the southern portions of Nevada – may expect, within the three months following same, an inundation by the Earthquakes. But these, as we find, are to be more in the southern than in the northern hemisphere.
This Cayce reading is specific as to time factor (three months), and as to the inter-linking of seismic activity in the western United States, and volcanic activity in Mt. Pelee or Mt. Vesuvius. It is unclear what the relation of volcanic activity in Mt. Pelee or Mt. Vesuvius might be to the triggering of Earthquakes and inundation in southern California, Nevada, and Utah might be. A seismic risk map of Nevada and Utah indicates that a belt of relatively high seismicity lies between Salt Lake in Utah and Lake Mead in southern Nevada. Inundations of the area following earthquakes are geologically possible.
The use of specific time frames, such as “three months” in this reading, is relative in the Cayce readings. A specific time means during this general period, or era.
Mt. Pelee in Martinique last erupted in a 5.0 or greater eruption in 1902, resulting in the deaths of all but one of the capital city’s 30,000 inhabitants. Mt. Soufriere, fifty kilometers away on St. Lucia, also erupted in 1902, causing 1565 deaths. It also experienced a series of small eruptions in March 1972. Major eruptions on Mt. Vesuvius occurred in 79 AD, 1906, and 1944. Like Pelee, Vesuvius is located in relative proximity to other active volcanoes, Mt. Aetna, and a volcano on Stromboli Island. Disaster preparedness officials are concerned about the high risk of an expected volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius. There is more than a probability of major devastation to parts of Naples and its suburbs.
Another time-specific Cayce prediction is that of the shifting of the Earth’s axis as a culmination of the Earth changes.
1. August 11, 1936
QUESTION: What great change or the beginning of what change, if any, is to take place in the Earth in the year 2000 to 2001 AD?
CAYCE: When there is a shifting of the poles. Or a new cycle begins.
In a later reading referring to the pole shift, the Cayce material indicates that climatic changes will accompany this axis shift by the planet. Plausibly, it is a physical shift in the Earth’s axis, as climate changes would not accompany shifts in the magnetic poles.
CAYCE:….so that where there [have] been those of a frigid or the semi-tropical will become the more tropical, and moss and fern will grow.
A shift in the axis of the Earth could is geologically plausible, as the result of a violent disruption of the Earth’s tectonic plates, and hence of its land and water masses. A consistent vision emerges from the Cayce Earth changes readings.
The specific massive Earth changes his psychic predictions describe are in fact those which could be brought about by a disturbance of the Earth’s tectonic plate system. The culminating Earth change – a shift in the axis of the Earth – would be brought about with the gigantic rearrangement of tectonic plates, landmasses, and oceans. A geological analysis of the Cayce axis shift prediction indicates that it is consistent with the individual Earth changes predicted, and would be caused by large-scale crustal displacements.
Earth scientists have postulated shifts in the Earth’s axis as the most simple and obvious explanation of great climatic changes in past geologic epochs.
“The simple and most obvious explanation of great secular changes in climate, and of former prevalence of higher temperatures in northern circumpolar regions, would be found in the assumption that the Earth’s axis of rotation has not always been in the same position, but that it may have changed its position as a result of geological processes, such as extended rearrangement of land and water.” Julius Hann, Austrian meteorologist.
The time frame of this predicted axis shift again remains relative. The reading itself indicates that 2001 could be the beginning of a period of Earth changes, a culmination of which is the Earth’s axis shift, and the beginning of a “new cycle.”
Another theme of the Cayce readings is predictions of food shortage that will accompany the period of Earth changes. One 1944 reading predicted certain areas as food-producers during the period of Earth changes,
CAYCE: Saskatchewan, the Pampas area of the Argentine…portions of South Africa….these rich areas, with some portions of Montana and Nevada, must feed the world.
This theme appeared in various Cayce readings during this period.
CAYCE: These conditions have not changed. For the hardships for this country have not begun yet, so far as the supply and demand for foods is concerned.
CAYCE: Anyone who can buy a farm is fortunate; and buy it if you want to grow something and don’t want to grow hungry in some days to come.
CAYCE: All that is for the sustenance of life is produced from the soil. Then there must be a return to the soil. Every man must be in that position that he at least creates, by his activities, that which will sustain the body – from the soil; or where he is supplying same to those activities that bring such experiences into the lives of all.
Let us sum up where our journey into Earth changes has led us so far. We have seen that the Earth sciences do not predict Earth changes of a cataclysmic scale in the near term future.
We have seen that psychics like Edgar Cayce can have access to accurate information about the future. We have also seen that the type and scale of Earth changes, envisioned by the Cayce psychic predictions, are geologically plausible.
So, if the Earth changes predicted by Edgar Cayce might occur, how could they be caused, and why is the Earth sciences not predicting them?
