Antarctica Experiment Discovers Puzzling Space Ray Pattern

Posted by Admin on July 31, 2010

A puzzling pattern in the cosmic rays bombarding Earth from space has been discovered by an experiment buried deep under the ice of Antarctica.

Cosmic rays are highly energetic particles streaming in from space that are thought to originate in the distant remnants of dead stars.

But it turns out these particles are not arriving uniformly from all directions. The new study detected anoverabundance of cosmic rays coming from one part of the sky, and a lack of cosmic rays coming from another.

This odd pattern was detected by the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, an experiment still under construction that is actually intended to detect other exotic particles called neutrinos. In fact, scientists have gone out of their way to try to block out all signals from cosmic rays in order to search for the highly elusive neutrinos, which are much harder to find.

Yet in sifting through their cosmic-ray data to try to separate it from possible neutrino signals, the researchers noticed the intriguing pattern.

“IceCube was not built to look at cosmic rays. Cosmic rays are considered background,” said University of Wisconsin-Madison researcher Rasha Abbasi in a statement. “However, we have billions of events of background downward cosmic rays that ended up being very exciting.”

Previous studies have found a similar lopsidedness (called anisotropy) in the sky over the Northern Hemisphere, but this was the first time scientists saw that the pattern extended to the southern sky visible from Antarctica.

“At the beginning, we didn’t know what to expect,” Abbasi said. “To see this anisotropy extending to the Southern Hemisphere sky is an additional piece of the puzzle around this enigmatic effect – whether it’s due to the magnetic field surrounding us or to the effect of a nearby supernova remnant, we don’t know.”

One idea to explain the asymmetry is that a star may have recently died in a supernova explosion relatively nearby, and its remnant may be pouring out loads of cosmic rays that would dominate the signals we receive.

Whether or not the mystery gets solved, the observations could help scientists understand more about how cosmic rays are formed in the first place. Growing consensus favors the supernova remnant idea, though the details are not hammered out. Scientists think that the shells around dead stars, made of puffed-out layers of gas that were expelled by the star before it exploded, contain strong magnetic fields that may act as cosmic particle accelerators, speeding up particles to close to the speed of light.

“This is exciting because this effect could be the ‘smoking gun’ for our long-sought understanding of the source of high-energy cosmic rays,” Abbasi said.

IceCube’s findings on cosmic rays are detailed in a paper published Aug. 1 in the Astrophysical Journal Letters.

Looking Back on the Harmonic Convergence of Aug. 16-7, 1987

Posted by Admin on July 15, 2010

The Harmonic Convergence of 1987

The Harmonic Convergence of August 16-7, 1987 was a celebration of planetary quickening and rebirth, inspired by Dr. Jose Arguelles.

The Earth’s renaissance was predicted by the Mayans to start at this time and to culminate, at the end of a 26,000-year cycle, in the winter solstice of Dec. 21, 2012.

During this transitional period, the Earth would leave the Age of Pisces and enter the Age of Aquarius. Hindus knew this transition as one from the Kali Yuga or Dark Age to the Sat Yuga or Golden Age.

Jose Arguelles

By winter solstice 2012, the sun’s orbital cycle around the Pleiades star system would realign with the plane of the galactic center, which is known to the Mayans (I believe) as Hunab Ku, and produce a planetary transformation or  Ascension to the fifth Dimension.  (1)

My understanding is that the Mayan people learned their calendar from Quetzlcoatl, which I am led to believe is their name for Sanat Kumara, the planetary Logos of this cycle. Sanat Kumara is said to live on Venus in a higher dimension (much as we will soon live on Earth in a higher dimension).

In the Hopi tradition, 144,000 “rainbow warriors” or “sundancers” would gather at the end of this cycle to unite the Earth. Lightworkers Worldwide suggests that:

“At that time, people will have their choice to accept or reject the Creator’s plan for peace on earth. This is prophetically seen as the return of Quetzacoatl who in the ancient Mayan tradition is also the God of the planet Venus.” (2)

Sanat Kumara as Quetzlcoatl

Sanat Kumara is an exalted figure known to Zoroastrians, Hindus, Buddhists, Scandinavians, Muslims, and Theosophistsas well as  Christians and Jews.  To the latter he is known as the Biblical “Ancient of Days.”

Dr. Jose Arguelles led the Harmonic Convergence.  The ceremonies were held at power centers like Mount Shasta and Mount Fuji. It was believed that, if 144,000 people assembled at these power centers and meditated for peace, their efforts would multiply the power of the predicted events.  (3)

Sanat Kumara as the “Ancient of Days”

Dr. Lyn Hopkins described the organizers’ intentions:

“The period in history known as the Harmonic Convergence was defined by Jose Arguelles as:  ‘the point at which the counter-spin of history finally comes to a momentary halt, and the still imperceptible spin of post-history commences.’

“It was the fulfillment of the prophecy of Quetzalcoatl, known as the Thirteen Heavens and Nine Hells.  The prophecy stated that following the ninth hell, humanity would know and experience an unprecedented New Age of Peace.  The Hell cycle ended on August 16, 1987; the Harmonic Convergence began on August 17.

Sanat Kumara as Skanda

“Thus began the projected twenty-five year culmination of the 5,125 year Great Cycle of History, as well as the 26,000-year cycle of evolution, both slated to end in 2012.” (4)

Of course we know now that the era following the Harmonic Convergence of 1987 was anything but a “New Age of Peace.”

But that doesn’t detract from the significance of the event. Galactic and spirit teachers today say that many more people were made aware of Ascension than if the event had never happened and many more will go forward with the Earth as a result of it.

Dr. Hopkins described the energy changes as a result of the event:

“Since the initiation of the Harmonic Convergence, there have been measurable increases in the energy of our planet Earth.  After resonating at a base resonant frequency of 8 Hz per second for thousands of years, during which Earth has essentially been asleep, her frequency is now rising.  She appears to be rising to a fundamental vibration of 13 cycles per second, as predicted by the Fibonacci series (mathematical proportions based on the Golden Mean, also called the harmonics of the universe).

“Accompanying this energy boost is a rapid decrease in the magnetic field that surrounds the planet.  Our magnetic field has served us in the past by creating an illusion of separation and protection from energies outside ourselves.  It will eventually reach zero when there will be no artificial barriers, so it is essential that we take our power individually and collectively, honoring others and ourselves in the process.” (5)

The Harmonic Convergence of 1987

In 2008, Meg Benedicte looked back on the results of the Harmonic Convergence.  She felt it to have been an event of the highest importance and invited the planet’s population to use their inspiration from it to propel them through Ascension.

“Not only are we being supported by our Universal neighbors at this time, but we also have a powerful particle field of divine light entering our atmosphere.

“The inter-dimensional pathway opened in the heavens, and the Upward Spiral of Ascension swept into our human energy field in 1987 at the Harmonic Convergence.

“Since then we have been gradually shedding density and parasitic systems, so that we can disengage from the downward spiral of the human death cycle, and shift into embodying the Universal upward spiral of evolution. This is the path of hope, renewal and rebirth!

“I invite all who are drawn to the New Earth reality to join the Ascension movement now. Send love from your hearts into the wave circling the planet as we build a crescendo of hope that supports the New Age. Charge it up in your hearts, picture it in your minds and feel it secure into the quantum hologram, so that we can take back our world and create the change needed to provide for all life on this planet. We are ONE community! Our time is NOW!” (6)

Dr. Meg Blackburn Losey, channeling “the Masters” a year later, drew our attention to the steadily increasing harmonics of the planet and its inhabitants.

“Your harmonic vibrations have been raised in recent weeks to a state of oscillation and vibration that has not been experienced in humanity for nearly 26,000 years. You are of greater light and more reflective than humanity has ever been in the entirety of its history.

“What is now in occurrence is a complete re-harmonization of all creation that brings forth a heightening of responsive light toward attunement of dysfunctional harmonics. Like a grand piano, all of creation is ridding itself of sour notes and retuning for perfection of harmonic resonance.” (7)

We are now down to the last two-and-a-half years of this present planetary cycle.

The Conscious Convergence scheduled for July 17-18, 2010 is the next stage in our opening to the consciousness of our unity with everything that lives and our preparations for Ascension. May it result in the falling away of the walls that divide us and the achievement of unity and harmony as a planet.
