In a previous blog, this writer commented on the recent promotion of a meme that a comet strike explained the tragedy of the Younger Dryas and the stories of the Great Flood. In that blog, it was posited that Dr. Paul LaViolette’s galactic superwave hypothesis was a better fit to a wider set of data. Some of the key data points of the hypothesis are thus:

• Acid levels in Antarctica rose dramatically starting about 14,000 years ago. • Strange metals in the ice cores at nearly the same time. (Beryllium-10), which indicates proton cosmic rays • Evidence in the cosmological record exists of a number of supernovas in that time frame, which is unusual.

• The arrival of the superwave led to earthquakes and volcanic eruptions

• A cosmic dust invasion disturbed the sun’s energy distribution and vastly affected the earth. The dust vastly acidified the biosphere, leading to extinctions and massive plant death, destabilized weather, and vast social disruption

Essentially, a vast cosmic dust cloud, according to the theory, pushed past the bubble created by the solar wind and inundated the solar system. This cloud and its effects, plus the “backlighting” from the core explosion, illuminated the dust clouds in the galaxy, making the sky extra creepy, and the nickname of Venus became “the bearded star,” due to its tail through the dust.

All of these events are described in the historical record. Until Dr. LaViolette’s theory and the supporting facts were deciphered from the physical record, no one could explain the words of the ancient texts in a scientific way.

It sure would be nice to be able to know an event like this is coming.

In that light, Dr. LaViolette pointed out on his blog that the gigantic earthquake followed just such a galactic wave arrival in 2004.

He said in February 2005: “On December 26, 2004 a magnitude 9.3 earthquake occurred in the Indian Ocean off the coast of Sumatra in Malaysia. It caused a powerful tsunami, which devastated coastal regions of many countries leaving over 240,000 people either dead or missing. It was the worst tsunami to affect this area since the 1883 explosion of Krakatoa.

The earthquake that produced it was so strong that it exceeded by a factor of 10 the next most powerful earthquake to occur anywhere in the past 25 years.

Indonesian 9.3 Richter earthquake: December 26, 2004 at 00 hours 58 minutes (Universal Time) It is then with some alarm that we learn that just 44.6 hours later gamma ray telescopes orbiting the Earth picked up the arrival of the brightest gamma ray burst ever recorded! Gamma ray burst arrival: December 27, 2004 at 21 hours 36 minutes (Universal Time)” [Source: http://etheric.com ]

The burst emanated from a powerful neutron star, SGR 1806-20, a star only 12 miles in diameter and 25,000 light years from earth. The outburst of gamma rays released more energy in a tenth of a second than the sun emits in 100,000 years. It is Dr. LaViolette’s position that the gamma rays arrived behind the gravity wave, which might even be superluminal at inception. [Emphasis mine.]

Publisher Catherine Austin Fitts noted that trading changed with respect to the Indonesian currency a short while before the earthquake and tsunami. Her theory at the time was that “the hit might have been planned.“ If earth based scientists have developed extrasolar detection technology in operation in 2004, they may have had advance notice of a superwave arrival, which does not explain the alleged ability to predict an earthquake and its location, only the coincidence.

Common knowledge says that cosmic events produce effects that travel at and near the speed of light. In order to explain how “someone” could have predicted the quake, one would need a sensing mechanism that was superluminal, as Dr. LaViolette pointed out may be possible with superwaves.

Dr. Farrell has many times described the scalar component of physical phenomena. Simply put, scalars do not compress or “wave,” and so they are not subject to the speed limit for mass at the speed of light.

Stepping out on a limb here… is it possible that someone has developed scalar sensing equipment and is using it to read space weather happening at vast distances with very little time lag? Given the suppression of scalar physics, it would explain some things and make sense given some of the more important and quieter papers in physics that are never talked about. It sure would have been nice for it to have been shared with the people who live near sea level on the Indian Ocean, but that would not have been profitable.

Something Wicked This…

Metrology and Chronology are the studies of measurement and time. Most people are not aware that all measurements are inherently subjective, subject to error, and require constant revision. The methods of modern science, beginning with Francis Bacon, have all been directed to reducing error in measurement, increasing the relevance of the data, and enabling more effective scientific models to develop. Metrology and chronology are important element in the foundations of empiricism and the scientific method itself. Joseph Farrell ably discusses the topic in his book, Grid of the Gods, written with Dr. Scott DeHart. How are we measuring? How can we assess when things happened?  The paleoancient narrative seems highly subjective and more effective techniques continue to be developed and hopefully shared.

Nothing is as dicey as figuring out when events happened in the distant past. The Earth system is in constant motion. The environment of the Earth is dynamic, and this activity smudges the fingerprints of the past. Much has been written in the alternative science field about the origins of the Younger Dryas, a violent change in Earth weather that resulted in a rapid cooling of the Earth that lasted for about 1,000 years. It was a very short ice age. It has been difficult, even with a time span of only 12,000 to 14,000 years ago to fix a precise date for the event. The reigning alternative hypothesis is that a comet of some kind impacted the Earth. Some say that the object hit the Great Lakes region of the United States, wiping out nearly 40 species and dooming the Clovis civilization.  We’ve heard a lot of excitement from able researchers like Mr. Graham Hancock and I applaud his efforts. At the same time, I must express skepticism on the comet theory; if only because the hole in the ground has not been identified with clarity.  But work is ongoing.

A recent article in Mediterranean Archaeology and Archaeometry provides more textual evidence of the date by reference to Gobekli Tepe and astronomy. But the problem has never been the date. The problem has always been “the what.”

I think we will ultimately find that multiple events over about 100 years happened to trigger the Younger Dryas and the great melting. But what can explain all the data? Since we know that the Younger Dryas happened, further chronological precision may be unhelpful. The real question is what the triggering events were, the scientific narrative, if you will.

Many readers of Joseph Farrell’s work on the cosmic war will be familiar with Dr. Paul LaViolette, a physicist with a PhD in general systems theory. His unique background enables him to syncretize the various scientific disciplines and bring to bear all of the available information in an analogical way. One important book is his work, Earth under Fire. In it, he gathers all the best information he can from many dozens of sources and proposes that the effects of a massive explosion at the center of the Milky Way arrived to Earth about 13,500 years ago, which coincides quite nicely with the more recent research.  His theory explains most of the data while the comet theory only explains some of it.

Since these events occurred within human memory it also is worthy to consider textual evidence – the stories, tablets, and monuments of the past, in order to glean new calibrations of what and when, as Mr. Hancock is so good at doing; a technique when employed by Dr. LaViolette is quite fruitful. The strongest evidence is for LaViolette’s galactic wave theory, and it still remains the most interesting and relevant theory when combined with real scientific data and properly-interpreted textual evidence provided by human memory.

The bias against human historical narrative, misconstrued through the lens of colonial arrogance, must end if we are to find the final answers to the mystery of the great catastrophe. My advice is to reject the comet theory as the sole trigger. The story is wider and deeper; understanding  “Who are we?” “Where did we come from?”  “Where are we going?” will be better answered if we extend our sights beyond the heliopause.  An accurate historical record is the key element in humanity understanding itself.

It also might allow us to gain some predictive skill in galactic weather forecasting; which we need since those of us on the surface lack the underground cities of the government and the wealthy. The recent purple skies from the CME event in April 2017 as well as the Carrington event in 1859 should give anyone pause as the extent of our vulnerabilities on the surface. The cave cities in Turkey and tunnels throughout Europe seem like a better idea all the time.

China Joins Space Race To Test EM Drive

December 26, 2016

Over the holidays many important stories emerged, and I hope to be covering them this week prior to New Year’s, but one of those stories was China’s announcement that it has already been testing the so-called EM drive in space. This story was shared by many regular readers here, but here are two versions, and they both come with a lot of caveats:

Chinese boffins: We’re testing an ‘impossible’ EM Drive IN SPAAAACE

China claims it’s already started testing an EM Drive in space

Let’s look at the caveats for a moment, as expressed by Fiona MacDonald in the second article’s opening five paragraphs:

The whole world got excited last month when NASA published the first peer-reviewed paper on the ‘impossible’ electromagnetic, or EM, Drive, which appears to somehow defy physics by producing thrust without a propellant.

Their verdict was that it seems to work, although a lot of physicists still think the results are flawed. But now researchers in China have announced that they’ve already been testing the controversial drive in low-Earth orbit, and they’re looking into using the EM Drive to power their satellites as soon as possible.

Big disclaimer here – all we have to go on right now is a press conference announcement and an article from a government-sponsored Chinese newspaper (and the country doesn’t have the best track record when it comes to trustworthy research).

So until we see a peer-reviewed paper, we really can’t say for sure whether the researchers are even testing the drive in space, let alone what their results have shown.

But what the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) team is saying also corresponds with information provided to IB Times from an anonymous source. According to their informant, China already has an EM Drive on board its version of the International Space Station, the space laboratory Tiangong-2.

Lack of published data or “peer review” notwithstanding, it stretches my credulity to believe that China would not investigate an EM drive, nor attempt to do so as quickly as possible in space. A little over a half a century ago, then Senate Democratic Majority Leader Lyndon Johnson stated it best when he said that whoever holds the strategic high ground, by which he meant space, wins. It was a geopolitical maxim he was well aware of and unfailingly pursued both as a Senator, then Vice President and finally President. The Russians understood this (and still do), and the Chinese, by their announcements of various goals for their space program, clearly do as well.

As such, any technology that promises to give an advantage to any space power will, perforce, be investigated by them. What is interesting is the claims – still repeated – that the EM drive somehow either violates the principles of physics, or operates on as yet unknown principles. We’ll get back to that claim in a moment. What intrigues is that both articles mention that the Chinese have apparently zeroed in on the geometry of the cavity itself, testing various shapes and dimensions to see if these improve or impede the efficiency of the device; as Iian Thomson notes in the first article:

China is trying out different shapes for the reaction chamber of the drive to see which generates the most thrust. It’s clear that the country is taking the EM Drive seriously and wants to get one operational as soon as possible.

“This technology is currently in the latter stages of the proof-of-principle phase, with the goal of making the technology available in satellite engineering as quickly as possible,” said Li Feng, chief architect of the China National Space Technology Institute’s communications satellite division, at the press conference.

The EM drive, according to its inventor, British engineer Roger Sawyer, maintains the physics is completely known; all he did was to apply it:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wBtk6xWDrwY

(For the record, it should be noted that like many, Mr. Sawyer gives an incorrect version of Einstein’s famous equation, E=mc^2, whereas in reality, Einstein expressed the mass component as a Mass Difference, M, and not simply mass, m, and therefore the correct version is E=Mc^2).

In any case, the real question becomes rather why the device is continually said be be operating either in contradiction to known physics or operating by unknown principles. Correlative with this question, is the question of why NASA seems to be dragging their feet if, indeed, China is pressing ahead? One answer is that perhaps NASA has already been quietly and secretly  testing the device in space. In this respect it is worth recalling that Dr. Paul LaViolette, in his seminal work Secrets of Anti-Gravity Propulsion, mentioned 1950s tests of NASA and the US Air Force testing microwave propulsion systems, and according to one anecdotal story that he relates, these experiments were successful. The other possibility is that NASA..

The EM Space Drive Now In Public Patent Process In The United Kingdom

October 23, 2016

Over the past three days I’ve been blogging about the strange space news that forms, in my opinion, the necessary backdrop to the recent presidential Executive Order issued by President Obama in respect to “space weather,” and today’s story is no exception. By now most regular readers here have heard of the EM drive, the drive that produces thrust by relying on microwaves. The drive began in obscurity and, of course, disbelief from a certain segment of the scientific community, but has overcome enough opposition in various tests to be granted a trial test in outer space, and now, according to this story shared by Ms. K.M., is in the process of patent in the United Kingdom, the country where the EM drive was first unveiled:

A Patent For The Controversial & ‘Impossible’ Quantum Space Engine (EM Drive) Was Just Made Public

As the article avers, the significance of a patent implies some sort of scientific validity to the concepts behind the engine. But there are a number of statements in this article that give me pause, both for the hints and suggestions that the principles of the operation of this engine might be different from what was previously stated about it, and for the possibility that this technology might be far older than imagined, and that what we’re witnessing is one of those “controlled releases” of information of a “limited hangout” nature, but that is today’s high octane speculation which we’ll get to in a moment.

Here are the statements:

Utilizing electromagnetic waves as fuel, the EM drive creates thrust by bouncing microwave photons back and forth in a cone-shaped metal cavity.

Now, Newton’s Third Law states that without exhaust you can’t produce thrust, or if something needs an “equal and opposite reaction,” something needs to be coming out of the back of the propulsion system to push it forward, and the EM drive doesn’t have that.

It’s called the law of conservation of momentum, but this invention taps into the ‘zero-point‘ field of energy/electromagnetic waves.

By the way, the laws of physics need to be changed to account for the fact that space is not empty.

Experiments from a number of researchers from around the world and NASA have shown that it can indeed produce thrust with enough power to propel a spacecraft.

Now it is not entirely true that the “laws of physics need to be changed to account for the fact that space is not empty.” After all, the 19th century aether lumeniferous theory was essentially a theory of a non-empty space, and the idea that vacuum space has an energy of its own that is limitless and inexhaustible falls out of some models of quantum mechanics. What is new here is that previously the EM drive was said to be a simple microwave thrust.

Now however, that story has changed to the idea that the EM drive is really producing thrust or, to be more precise, a vector translation force, because of its utilization of the zero point energy. I find this highly intriguing for a number of reasons, the first of which is this paper, which is referenced in the article itself:

Anomalous Thrust Production From an RFT Test Device

If one goes to the diagram Figure 15 on page 12 of this paper, one will see something that I personally find very intriguing, for notice the counter-rotation of the device in stacked vortices along the central axis of the cone, and what appears to be a diagrammatic representation of a greater “thrust” toward the narrow end of the cone. Not to coin a pun, but this rang a certain Bell with me, for this is exactly the type of “reverse engineering” I attempted to do for the acclaimed Nazi device in my various books on the subject. Granted, this EM drive is not using any mysterious “Xerum 525” or thorium isomers not direct electricity pulsing, but it is interesting to recall that Nazi scientist Ronald Richter specifically mentioned that plasmas in such a rotational configuration and coherence, when sharply pulsed under conditions of such radio frequency rotation and proper resonance, could tap into or “gate” the zero point energy (see my The Nazi International). It is also interesting to recall that in Igor Witkowski’s reconstruction of the Bell story, the device levitated, i.e., produced thrust (See Witkowski, The Truth about the Wunderwaffe).

Under these circumstances I strongly suspect that DARPA’s recent announced goal of having the USA be “warp capable” and Dr. Harold White’s NASA research into warp drives are possibly connected to this EM drive research.

So why then call it a “limited hangout”?

For the simple reasons pointed out by Dr. Paul LaViolette in his Secrets of Anti-Gravity Propulsion, for in that book, Dr. LaViolette recounted the early 1950s experiments precisely in microwave propulsion, utilizing the soliton effect, which also seems to be at last strongly suggested by Figure 15 in the above referenced paper. According to LaViollette, these experiments were actually successful… in the 1950s. It is when one puts these four stories – the Nazi Bell (as I attempted to ‘reverse engineer’ it from Witkowski’s recounting), the 1950s microwave drive experiments recounted by LaViolette, Richter’s statements on rotating cohered plasmas under high DC electrical stress, and the EM drive – together that one sees an intriguing pattern emerge…
