Megalithomania Concludes and Update on my travels in the UK
On this trip, my webmaster, Tommy Hansen is accompanying me as my cameraman. Here we are hiking around the hills above Glastonbury visiting Megaliths and stone circles. Megalithomania in Glastonbury concluded with a panel discussion with the excellent group of speakers. Click here for the line-up and to stream the fascinating presentations.
Yesterday I did two interviews. First a short interview with Robert Temple, erudite author, historian and scholar about his new book"Egyptian Dawn" and his discoveries on the Giza Plateau. And later in the afternoon, an interview with Bosnian scientist and maverick,Semir Sam Osmanigich regarding his amazing discovery, the Bosnian pyramids of the Sun and the Moon and the hidden tunnels beneath. Both Robert Temple and Semir Sam Osmanigich gave excellent presentations at the event and I highly encourage you to stream them from the Megalithomania site.
It is inspiring to be among such groundbreaking researchers who are each courageously pursuing their unique visions of the fascinating ancient sites and the secrets they contain.
Andy Lloyd - re Comet Elenin
I asked Andy Lloyd, author of Dark Star, to share his thoughts on Comet Elenin
"Thanks Kerry - you spurred me into action to blog this onto the Dark Star site:
2012 is nearly upon us, and there is great concern that an in-coming Planet X body might bring catastrophe to our fragile world. The environmental calamities of recent times do not augur well. There has been a spate of earthquakes around the globe; Chile, Japan, New Zealand. Even Spain has not escaped our planet's seismic ripples, on the very same day that an earthquake was predicted for Rome almost 100 years ago (1).
Predicting earthquakes is practically impossible, we are told, unless, of course, you're a small animal sensitive to mysterious fluctuations before the quake strikes.
Comet Elenin is currently moving through the solar system (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C/2010_X1) . Many have expressed concerns about this body, which appears to have disappointed astronomers with its relatively pathetic celestial showing (2). But it's appearance preludes the 2012 period we are moving into, so it's reasonable to ask whether this small comet might be the first of many, or even the front rider for a much more substantive body. YouTube is bubbling over with rumours.
Amid the hype, there is an intriguing bit of science. An academic from Cornell University, Mensur Omerbashich, has presented a paper outlining his assertion that there is a tangible link between cosmic alignments and seismic activity on Earth, based upon his theory of hyperresonance (3). He presents evidence that some earthquakes are coincident with planetary alignments, or with Full Moons. He argues that the Comet Elenin is a case in point - it has been noted that it was on the exact opposite side of the Sun to us during the Japanese earthquake and tsunami. From this data he extrapolates:
"The Elenin will continue intensifying the Earth's very strong seismicity until August-October, 2011. Approximate forecast of earthquakes based on my discoveries is feasible." (3)
And there's the thing. Could Omerbashich's theory predict earthquakes from planetary, cometary and lunar alignments? Does the Earth respond to such cosmic goings on, performing some kind of seismic astrology? Did Elenin really cause the Japanese quake? To give credence to his theory, Omerbashich needs to pick up the trail of a future in-coming comet and plot its course until an alignment is achieved with the Earth and Sun, and then predict trouble here on Earth ahead of time. If he's proven right, then we should all sit up and take notice. And if you listen to the many concerned voices on the internet about 2012, then such a predictive tool cannot come soon enough.
