Moonlight and Nature’s Rhythms*

Moonlight and Nature’s Rhythms*

By Ferris Jabr

Lunar luster triggers mating orgies, guides travelers and even can even provoke magical transformations

One November night each year, beneath the full moon, more than 130 species of corals simultaneously spawn in Australia’s Great Barrier Reef. Some corals spew plumes of sperm, smoldering like underwater volcanoes. Others produce eggs. But most release both eggs and sperm, packed together in round, buoyant bundles as small as peppercorns and blushed in shades of pink, orange, and yellow.

At first, the parcels wait in the lips of corals. Then, in stunning unison, numerous corals lose their seeds, which hover momentarily above their parents, preserving the shape of the reef in an effervescent echo. Gradually, the bundles drift skyward.

The first time marine biologist Oren Levy witnessed this phenomenon, in 2005, he was near Heron Island, off the east coast of Australia. Fish, marine worms, and various predatory invertebrates zipped through the water, feeding on the coral confetti, which rose slowly from the reef in huge quantities. “It’s like the whole ocean wakes up,” says Levy, who now heads a marine ecology research team at Bar Ilan University in Israel.

 “You can watch videos, you can hear about it, but once you are actually in the midst of the biggest orgy on this planet, there’s nothing else like it.”

Corals continue to reproduce in the Great Barrier Reef today, though the sections that have escaped the ravages of climate change are rapidly shrinking. Swimming near the surface of the sea that memorable night 12 years ago, Levy encountered dense pink mats of accumulating eggs and sperm. There, drenched in moonlight, gametes from different colonies began to fuse and form free-swimming larvae, which would eventually settle on the seafloor, bud, and construct new coral citadels—a process now more vital than ever.

The moon is not the only environmental cue the corals use to achieve sexual synchrony on such a massive scale; water temperature and day length also matter. Yet the moon’s presence seems to be crucial. If the sky is too cloudy, and the moon obscured, the corals will often not spawn. Sometimes they delay until the next full moon. In the course of their studies, Levy and his colleagues revealed that not only do corals have light-sensitive neurons tuned to the dim blue wavelengths of moonlight, they also have genes that change their activity level in sync with the waxing and waning moon, regulating reproduction.

Scientists have known for centuries that the moon alters Earth’s ecosystems through gravity. As it spins around our planet, warping space-time, the moon contributes to a complex contortion of the oceans, producing twin bulges we call the tides. In turn, the daily marriage and separation of land and sea transforms the topography of numerous species’ homes and the access they have to food, shelter, and each other.

The moon also stabilizes Earth’s climate. Earth does not have perfect posture; it is tilted along its polar axis, circling the sun at an angle of about 23 degrees. The moon acts as an anchor, preventing the Earth from varying its axial tilt by more than a degree or two. Without the moon, our planet would likely wobble about like a dreidel, tilting a full 10 degrees every 10,000 years, and possibly oscillating the global climate between ice ages and hellish heat the likes of which no species has ever endured.

What is becoming increasingly clear, however, is that the moon also influences life in a more surprising and subtle way: with its light. Most organisms possess an array of genetically encoded biological clocks that coordinate internal physiology and anticipate rhythmic changes in the environment. These clocks are wound by various environmental cues known as zeitgebers (time givers), such as light and temperature.

Sunlight is the best-studied zeitgeber, but it turns out that for many aquatic creatures, moonlight is just as crucial. In the past few years, scientists have rekindled a long-neglected curiosity about the moon’s power to manipulate life, reviving studies on biology’s secret moon clocks.

The Electro-magnetic Warfare on our Consciousness*

The Electro-magnetic Warfare on our Consciousness*

By E. Thompson

Everyone worries about nuclear weapons as the most serious threat to our survival. Their danger is indeed immediate and overwhelming. In the long run, however, I believe the ultimate weapon is manipulation of our electromagnetic environment, because it’s imperceptibly subtle and strikes at the core of life itself. Even if we survive the chemical and atomic threats to our existence, there’s a strong possibility that increasing electro-pollution could set in motion irreversible changes leading to our extinction before we’re even aware of them. 

It often seems there must be some other reason why today’s power elite are so willing to bring the whole world to the brink of so many kinds of destruction. – p327.  The Body Electric by Robert O Becker.

The End of the Grand Cosmic Year

 The Grand Cosmic Year of twenty-six thousand years is grinding to a close, and push is coming to shove for all life on earth. As the power elite forge ahead for global dominion and electro-magnetic control of our species, they will in their arrogance unleash titanic elemental forces that will bring cosmic order to the chaos they have so wantonly created. Our technological, tyrannical and unjust world will perish… just like Atlantis, and all ‘civilisations’ that have met their doom with the closing of the programme.

The blocking mechanisms

In the four years of the reset Dec 2012-2016, the geometric frequency fences of sun, moon and planets are energetically at their weakest, and can no longer corrupt cosmic information. Without the frequency fences to distort reality, the satanic cabal have to create jamming mechanisms of their own to sabotage our ascension timeline. This is what HAARP, CERN and the smart grid is all about. It’s all designed to energetically block the evolutionary, cosmic information available at the end of each Grand Cosmic Year.- The awareness that leads to the ascension process.

The poisons

The wave of negativity created by their frequency machine HAARP, scalar wave technology, demonic wars, vaccinations, poisonous food, drinks, entertainment and smart grid, are all attempts to keep us vibrationally resonating in their matrix game. The more blood they can spill, the more children they can terrorise, the more animals they can slaughter, all add to the lowering of planetary frequency.

Their aim is to distract and terrorise us on every level of our being…it’s called traumatic mind control.

The frequency that engulfs us when we are frightened is a slow and poisonous field that binds us deeper into the matrix game and disrupts our evolution and ascension timeline. This is the reason our satanic handlers are throwing the negative at us, they know about the cycles of time and what is on offer, and they are trying to make damn sure we don’t escape from their electro-magnetic web. They are deliberately keeping down the resonance of everything that exists in our reality, exploiting our chemically driven lusts, our fears, hopes and dreams.

They are desperate that we will resonate on the information field available at this time, and awaken to their scam. But their greatest fear is that we will claim sovereignty over our own minds, and regain our cosmic consciousness…our 90% de-activated DNA.

Fast frequency

As the battlefield of duality grinds to a close and the old programme [matrix] ends, we have an opportunity to escape from the confines of the human ‘loosh’ farm. The speed of human resonance is the key to this whole horrible reality we are taking part in and, for those of us who want to get on the bus and leave the farm, we have to understand its perimeters. The programme or matrix which is created by our collective hive mind thinking, only works in three dimensions not four: that’s the ‘Key made of Air’ right there.

AscensionA warrior’s resonance

I’m a traveller in this reality, and am not trying to convince anyone of anything, but it seems to me that many of us are sharing an energetic information highway. Our perspectives are being turned around, and with it our lives, and our concepts of reality are bizarre to many people. We no longer resonate with our family and friends, and become alienated by our new perspective. We are in shock and awe as our view of the world disintegrates…and are often overwhelmed by the confusion and despair that goes with it.

And, as we go further with our understanding, we realise that third dimensional reality is animated fractal geometry. The resonance of the broadcast is decoded and interpreted into five sense reality by our antennae, the chakra system in our bodies. The five band spectrum defines the perimeters of our physical consciousness, the world of touch, taste, smell, light and sound.

What interests me, is how fast we have to speed up our frequencies to resonate faster than the five bands of power that creates the farm.

The last fifteen months of the reset.

Proud man, dress’d in a little brief authority, Most ignorant of what he’s most assur’d—
His glassy essence—like an angry ape
Plays such fantastic tricks before high heaven
As makes the angels weep.
Shakespeare.

Life is a wild ride when you are awake and watch the players in the programme; the two sides of everything, battling it out…thinking they can win. And meanwhile the blood flows, hatred grows, and all life is full of woes. The re-run of an ancient movie is projected on the screen of life, the blood-fest and carnage of war, the causes, the loves, the tragedies, the villains and heroes.  It gets boring after a while..It makes you realise that the creator of the programme doesn’t possess imagination…it leaves that to us.

482df-pTrauma based mind control and the ascension timeline

Our present incarnation in this reality is the last in this cycle. For many, it will be the most difficult in terms of trauma. The burning off of the dross of karma is very painful, but if we can trust in the innate goodness of ourselves and our other self the planet, this lifetime can bring the ultimate spiritual gift – a golden lining to the dark cloud on our horizon.

When we observe the programme’s very primitive game of survival, we will realise, that under certain conditions, we are all capable of horrific violence especially if we have a cause. This is Impostor Consciousness operating in a Satanic Reality. In the next fifteen months if we want to ride the bus out of the farm, we have to become our own spiritual midwives.

The ride

The ‘shift’ is a personal frequency change, a movement in the assemblage point to a level that vibrates outside the energetic perimeters of the farm, the third dimension.

Resonation is everything, let your intuition guide you. Re-connect with your compromised DNA…the planet and its creatures, because all that is required to ride the bus is an open fearless heart…. and the innocence of a child. For in the blaze of glory that is our true nature, the farm dissolves and a new reality appears.

In the meantime before we take our great adventure, we are either a sign post for each other or a dead end. So spread your intuitive truth, and if you want to enter the game, be without emotion, and place your intent for cosmic justice… in the foreground of your consciousness.

It takes practice, so don’t give up on yourself.

Strange things are happening in both outer and inner space scientists are discovering that the Solar System, the sun, and life itself are mutating in totally unprecedented ways.

They are reporting changes that are being recorded in space that have never been seen before Studies show that the Sun and the planets themselves are physically changing at an accelerated pace. Most notably, they are undergoing major changes in their atmospheres.

Sun: The Sun is the centre of our Solar System, and all life that is on this Earth came from the Sun. If there were no Sun, we would not be alive. This is simply scientific fact. And so any changes that occur in or on the Sun will eventually affect every person alive.

We know that the Sun’s magnetic field has changed in the last 100 years. There’s a study by Dr. Mike Lockwood from Rutherford Appleton National Laboratories, in California. Dr. Lockwood has been investigating the Sun, and reports that since 1901 the overall magnetic field of the Sun has become stronger by 230%.

Moon: Earth’s moon is growing an atmosphere. Around the moon, there is this 6,000- kilometre- deep layer of Natrium that wasn’t there before.

Mercury: Unexpected polar ice discovered, along with a surprisingly strong intrinsic magnetic field.

Venus: 2500% increase in auroral brightness, and substantive global atmospheric changes in less than 40 years.

Mars: “Global Warming,” huge storms, disappearance of polar icecaps.

Jupiter: Over 200% increase in brightness of surrounding plasma clouds.(Huge belts in the giant planet’s atmosphere have changed colour, radiation hotspots have faded and flared up again, and cloud levels have thickened and dissolved, all while space rocks have been hurtling into it the gas giant.)

Saturn: Major decrease in equatorial jet stream velocities in only 30 years, accompanied by surprising surge of X-rays from equator.

Uranus: Big changes in brightness, increased global cloud activity (This planet used to have a very calm atmosphere. )

Neptune: 40% increase in atmospheric brightness.

Pluto: 300% increase in atmospheric pressure, even as Pluto recedes farther from the Sun.

Earth: Substantial and obvious world-wide weather and geophysical changes. Earth’s Axis has changed. On Earth, the overall volcanic activity increased 500% from 1875 to 1975, while the earthquake activity has increased by 400% since 1973. Dr. Dmitriev says that comparing the years 1963 to 1993, the overall number of natural disasters — hurricanes, typhoons, mud slides, tidal waves, etc. — has increased by 410%.

The Earth’s magnetic field has been decreasing. This decrease actually began 2000 years ago, but the rate of decrease suddenly became much more rapid 500 years ago. Now, in the last 20 years or so, the magnetic field has become erratic.

March was a landmark month energetically, with several rare planetary alignments, including a Super moon, Solar Eclipse and Equinox all within the same 24 hours on March 21st!

Coming as it did just after the 7th of 7 exact T-Squares, everything points to that day being a moment of paradigm shift – a time of great Awakening. Our ancient ancestors believed that Eclipses open a portal to higher realms, making it possible for us to receive huge downloads of information.

That is why they built sophisticated and mysterious structures such as Stonehenge and Newrange, which were designed to amplify the powerful cosmic energies being made available to them.

Despite the opening of powerful Stargate portals and the potential for new beginnings offered by the current universal geometries however, many people find it difficult to believe that anything is really changing when chaos still seems to reign, and evidence of human mayhem continues all around us.

Perhaps this ‘madness’ is part of a deep cleansing of the planet? And perhaps how quickly we can integrate the new energy and adjust to it, will depend on the level of each individual’s vibratory frequency.

We are being asked I think, to do everything in our power to raise our vibration out of 3D density and into the higher frequencies of Light. This always has been and still is, the prime purpose and raison d’être of the ‘Sounds of Sirius’.

It’s my belief that the melodies, tones and Light Language that flow through me from the higher dimensional realms, are being gifted quite specifically to raise the vibration of those who receive them, and in so doing, reconnect them with their soul’s original blueprint.

There is concrete evidence to suggest that Mother Earth herself is shifting her vibration, in order to adapt to the paradigm shift.

The Schumann Frequencies are the ‘sound’ of the earth. It’s like hearing the sound of a big drum, with that drum being the earth’s resonant cavity. Only a few years ago the earth was vibrating at around 7.8 hertz, but a few days ago, the Schumann frequency hit 16.5

This demonstrates that the earth itself is changing… she is literally speeding up!

Why is the number 16.5 important?

16.5, 33, 66, 132, 264… these numbers are all harmonic to the Solfeggio tone 528, which is the exact frequency used by genetic biochemists to repair broken DNA – the genetic blueprint upon which life is based.

What are Solfeggio Frequencies?

Here’s a short clip that explains the basis of the Solfeggio tones.

What are the Solfeggio Frequencies?
These original sound frequencies were apparently used in Ancient Gregorian Chants, such as the great hymn to St. John the Baptist, along with others that church authorities say were lost centuries ago.

The chants and their special tones were believed to impart tremendous spiritual blessings when sung in harmony during religious masses.

These powerful frequencies were rediscovered by Dr. Joseph Puleo as described in the book ‘Healing Codes for the Biological Apocalypse‘ by Dr. Leonard Horowitz.

I give honour to both of these gentleman for the part they’ve played in helping return these lost frequencies back to humanity.

If the Schumann frequency is resonating at a harmonic of 528 – the frequency scientists use to repair broken DNA – it would suggest would it not then, that our DNA may be repairing itself right now?

Perhaps Mother Earth‘s change of vibration to the harmonic of 528 is kick-starting our DNA re-activation, in order that we can move in sync with her, as she transcends 3D density to enter 4th and 5th dimensional realms.

The following excerpt from channel and healer Malcolm Bell‘s book ‘Rider in the Mist’ reinforces the idea of the intrinsic connection between human beings and Planet Earth:

“The human being is comprised of five bodies:

  1. the physical
  2. the mental
  3. the emotional
  4. the spiritual
  5. the higher self

Any change in the earth’s energy field affects all five bodies, so all five have to be realigned – adjusted in increments according to the varying and ongoing energy fluctuations – and brought back into balance and harmony.

In short, the symptoms that people were experiencing were the body’s response to the changing vibration. The body was struggling to adjust to the previously unknown, and never before encountered, elevated and newly patterned energy levels.

Unknown to us at times such as this, the body searches through its ancient tribal and genetic memory bank imprints, in an attempt to find a pre-existing pattern to align with.

Finding none, it now has to embark upon a critical program of developing and implementing a precise and compatible alternative energy-pattern match.

In the process of doing so, all five bodies endure considerable discomfort and confusion.”

The many and varied symptoms that people have been experiencing over the past few years as their bodies attempt to align with the huge ‘Shift of the Ages‘ taking place, have become so widespread that they have called ‘Ascension Symptoms’.

So don’t panic if you have been feeling kind of strange, ungrounded, exhausted, dizzy, fuzzy or depressed – you are not alone!

As Mother Earth continues to uplift her vibration to the New Earth dimensional frequencies, with our Sun assisting by sending us massive charges of intense radiation on almost a daily basis now, you are instinctively acclimatizing and trying to match her vibration, so that you can travel with her on the ‘Ascension’ path.

SpaceX Rocket Heading for ISS Explodes After US Launch*

An unmanned SpaceX rocket exploded less than three minutes after liftoff from Cape Canaveral, Florida on Sunday, in the first major disaster for the fast-charging company headed by Internet tycoon Elon Musk.

The accident was the third in less than a year involving US and Russian supply ships bound for the International Space Station, and raised new concerns about the flow of food and gear to the astronauts living in orbit.

Skies were sunny and clear for the 10:21 am (1421 GMT) launch of the gleaming white Falcon 9 rocket that was meant to propel the Dragon cargo ship on a routine supply mission, the seventh for SpaceX so far.

But two minutes, 19 seconds into the flight, contact was lost. Live television images from SpaceX’s webcast and NASA television showed a huge puff of smoke billowing outward for several seconds, then tiny bits of the rocket falling like confetti against a backdrop of blue sky.

“The vehicle has broken up,” said NASA commentator George Diller.

SpaceX’s live webcast of the launch went silent as the rocket exploded.

Moments later, a SpaceX commentator said the video link from the vehicle had been lost.

“There was some kind of anomaly during first stage flight,” the commentator said, noting that the rocket had ignited its nine Merlin engines and reached supersonic speed.

Later, on Twitter, Musk said the Falcon 9 “experienced a problem shortly before first stage shutdown,” referring to the phase of flight before the cargo ship would have been able to separate from the first stage of the rocket and reach orbit.

The problem appeared to be linked to excessive pressure in the liquid oxygen tank, Musk wrote.

“Data suggests counterintuitive cause,” said Musk, a lifelong space enthusiast who also heads Tesla Motors.

“That’s all we can say with confidence right now.”

More details were expected in a NASA press conference scheduled for no earlier than 12:50 pm (1650 GMT).

– Cargo concerns –

The loss came as a surprise to many who have followed Musk’s California-based company through more than a dozen successful launches, even as competitor Orbital Sciences lost one of its rockets in an explosion in October, and a Russian Progress supply ship was lost after liftoff in April.

“These things do happen, but this was not the best time for this to happen,” said Marco Caceres, a rocket industry analyst with the Teal Group.

“The one thing you could count on over the past few years was that the Falcon 9 was going to perform and was going to perform well,” he told AFP.

“In the midst of all this other chaos in the launch industry this was like, the one stable point and now we don’t have that,” he told AFP.

Caceres said the accident forces SpaceX, which has a billion-dollar-plus contract with NASA for supplying the ISS but is also competing with Boeing to send astronauts there by 2017, to launch again quickly.

“The moment they launch again successfully, this accident starts to fade into history really quickly. The longer they wait to launch again, the more people start talking about, ‘Maybe we were too overconfident about SpaceX,'” he said.

The Dragon cargo ship was carrying 4,000 pounds (1,800 kilograms) of gear to the space station, including a large parking space, known as an International Docking Adaptor, designed to make it easier for an array of commercial crew spacecraft to dock at the orbiting lab in the future.

“Very sorry to see @SpaceX launch failure. Serious ramifications for Space Station resupply. Good thing it’s international,” wrote Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield on Twitter.

NASA administrator Charles Bolden said the US space agency was “disappointed” at the loss but that the space station has “sufficient supplies for the next several months.”

A Russian Progress supply ship is scheduled to launch July 3, followed in August by a Japanese HTV flight, Bolden said.

“Orbital ATK, our other commercial cargo partner, is moving ahead with plans for its next launch later this year.”

Three men are currently living at the space station. Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko and American astronaut Scott Kelly began their year-long mission in orbit back in March.

“Sadly failed. Space is hard,” Kelly said on Twitter, posting a picture of his view of the Florida coast from space.

Earlier Sunday, station commander, Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, 57, set a new world record when he became the person who has officially spent the longest amount of cumulative time in space — 804 days.

His career includes one trip to the Mir Space Station and four to the ISS.

The Soyuz-U carrier rocket with the Russian Progress cargo spacecraft has set off for the ISS.

 

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The Soyuz-U carrier rocket with the Russian Progress-M28M cargo spacecraft has been launched from the Baikonur Space Center in Kazakhstan and is headed for the International Space Station (ISS), the Russian Mission Control outside Moscow said.

“The estimated time of the transport cargo vessel’s separation from the third stage of the launch vehicle and its entering the set orbit is July 3 08:04 Moscow time [05:04 GMT],” a mission control representative said.

The Progress cargo vessel will dock with the ISS at around 10:13 (07:13) Moscow time on Sunday, July 5, according to the mission control.

It will bring fuel, air, food and scientific equipment for the ISS crew, which currently consists of Russian cosmonauts Gennady Padalka, who is the commander, and Mikhail Kornienko, as well as NASA (US National Aeronautics and Space Administration) astronaut Scott Kelly.The launch of the Russian Progress cargo vessel comes after last week’s failed launch of the American SpaceX CRS-7 Falcon 9 rocket carrying a Dragon cargo ship with supplies for the ISS.

An April launch of the Progress M-27M spacecraft was unsuccessful. The spacecraft burned in the Earth’s atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean after its improper separation from the Soyuz carrier rocket which was caused by fuel leaks, according to Russia’s space agency Roscosmos.

A “Sixth Mass Extinction”? What will they have us believing Next*

A “Sixth Mass Extinction”? What will they have us believing Next*

 

By Wesley J. Smith

You may have read in the media that humans are causing a sixth mass extinction on the planet.

You may also have noted that one of the sources of the claim is Paul Ehrlich — author of the hysterically wrong The Population Bomb.

But for the most part the articles that have reported on the paper by Ehrlich and Anthony Barnosky (in Science Advances) do not mention that infamous book or Ehrlich’s history of hyperbolic ecological fear mongering. Instead they simply identify Ehrlich as a Stanford University professor and president of the Center for Conservation Biology. That’s misleading by omission.

Here’s one news reports, for example, that merely refers to him as a professor. From the story in the Telegraph:

Scientists at Stanford University in the US claim it is the biggest loss of species since the Cretaceous-Tertiary mass extinction which wiped out the dinosaurs 66 million years ago. “Without any significant doubt that we are now entering the sixth great mass extinction event,” said Professor Paul Ehrlich, at the Stanford Woods Institute for the Environment.

Putting it that way creates an illusion that Ehrlich would write an objective study. But Ehrlich is less a scientist than he is an ideologue who for decades has made a good living by preaching doom and gloom. His prognostications are almost always wrong.

The Telegraph‘s Tim Chivers penned a valuable column a few years ago outlining some of the assertions Ehrlich made in his book that turned out to be panicked rather than prophetic. From the column:

So, let’s take a look at some of his predictions, made in 1968:

1) “The battle to feed all of humanity is over. In the 1970s hundreds of millions of people will starve to death in spite of any crash programs embarked upon now. At this late date nothing can prevent a substantial increase in the world death rate,” he said. He predicted four billion deaths, including 65 million Americans…

What actually happened: Since Ehrlich wrote, the population has more than doubled to seven billion — but the amount of food per head has gone up by more than 25 per cent. Of course there are famines, but the death rate has gone down. I don’t think a significant number of Americans have starved….

3) “By the year 2000 the United Kingdom will be simply a small group of impoverished islands, inhabited by some 70 million hungry people … If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000.”

What actually happened: I’m not hungry. I just ate. Are you hungry? Were you hungry in 2000, especially? Does England exist?

You can’t responsibly report a doomsday story straight-faced as if Ehrlich doesn’t have a history. Many people already know who Ehrlich is and many will — rightly or wrongly — discount the study precisely because we know that he has an ideological agenda.

And then they moan that no one trusts “the science” anymore. This is an example of why — and why there is also so little trust remaining in the media.

Who would have thought travelling to outer space could be such a profound experience? OK, probably everybody, but these former astronauts really articulate it in a way that was just a little mind-blowing.

”You develop an instant global consciousness, a people orientation, an intense dissatisfaction with the state of the world, and a compulsion to do something about it. From out there on the moon, international politics look so petty. You want to grab a politician by the scruff of the neck and drag him a quarter of a million miles out and say, “Look at that, you son of a bitch.” — Edgar Mitchell, Apollo 14 astronaut
