The Beginning of the Fourth NIGHT of the Galactic Underworld -*

*Integrating the Fourth DAY and preparing for the breakthrough of the Fifth DAY*

by Carl Johan Calleman

A common misconception about the Mayan calendar is that this is about something?, usually an astronomical event, that will happen in 2012?. In such a view the Mayan calendar has little value as guidance in the present moment and its use is regarded as separate from the actual lives that we live, both as a global collective and as individuals. In order to make meaningful use of the Mayan calendar we need to be able to understand its alternating energies of time as parts of the context of the particular era we are currently living, in which the Galactic Underworld, which is the one that most directly influences human consciousness at the present time.

In the Galactic Underworld we have recently, as of November 29 2005, passed out of the Fourth DAY and entered the Fourth NIGHT and so this may be an appropriate time to summarize and look ahead. The article that I wrote at the beginning of the Fourth DAY is however still posted on my web site and may be evaluated as a prediction for some of the things that the DAY that we have now past brought along. I feel in two significant ways its predictions have turned out to be accurate: The shift making the Asian nations, and in particular China, to the engines of the world economy. Even though this may now seem obvious to everyone as recently as a year ago it was not. What in retrospect maybe I would have liked to have added is that this economic shift to the East now also includes Russia, which in no small way has experienced a growth in its economy.

Another thing that was predicted in my article of a year ago was the Mukti-Maya unification. The increasing awareness among people in a process towards enlightenment that this process follows the rhythm of the Mayan calendar. Hence, the midlight meditation of June 1-2, 2005, the midpoint of the Fourth DAY, was the world's first globally synchronized diksha event, whose effects were even detectable from a statistically significant way from the random number generators of the Global Consciousness Project led by Dr. Roger Nelson. Although certainly the number of spiritual individual and movements that see their activities and goals as associated to the cosmic process of evolution described by the Mayan calendar is very limited, I feel there are reasons to expect that others will join in especially as the Fifth DAY begins on November 24, 2006. It is my feeling that only those movements and individuals that are in phase with the DAYS and NIGHTS of the Mayan calendar are heading towards making a viable contribution to the cosmic process in which we are currently involved. This process is in Christian terminology called the Apocalypse, the time of revelation of a higher truth.

One thing that my article of a tun (360 day period) ago did not predict, but nonetheless has now become evident, is the increase in natural disasters during the Fourth DAY. Starting with the Tsunami during the uinal of death the tun was marked by several earthquakes and an unusual series of hurricanes, including that which hit New Orleans, and the emergence of a lingering threat of a bird flu epidemic. The number of books about natural catastrophes is multiplying and at the current time it seems most people are waiting for more to come. The fact that the above mentioned disasters happened during a period that was a DAY which was pivotal for the continued process, the Fourth DAY, there are very srong reasons to expect new phenomena that we may collectively call natural disasters especially in the following DAYS of the Galactic Underworld.
Thus, these may come to intensify as we enter its Fifth DAY in November of 2006. The explanation to why natural disasters may increase during the DAYS may in very general terms be that the world that the human beings have created is not consistent with the world that the divine process of creation aims to create and that this becomes the most evident as a new LIGHT enters. I agree that this may serve poorly to explain the specifics of many such occurrences. Yet, in the Galactic Underworld logic may turn out much more to be based on synchronicities than on cause-effect.
Paradoxically then, the breakthroughs into a collective experience of the divine presence may come to take place in parallel with natural disasters. And as any student of the New Testament knows the description of the Second Coming of Christ is associated with exactly the same kind of paradoxical intensification of natural disasters.
Here we may note that Jesus warns against any person claiming to be him and says that he will return ³on the clouds of heaven² and maybe what is referred to here is as an energy, or more specifically, as an energy associated with a certain Heaven, which in the Mayan calendar is a time period.
This is the kind of breakthrough into the divine presence that we have reasons to expect for the Fifth DAY, and I would like to discuss the significance of the Fourth NIGHT that has now begun in the perspective of this breakthrough. Although there is some time to get ready for them the years ahead will really put the lightworkers, or, probably better, spiritual warriors, to the test.

As usual, the way the Mayan calendar is to be used prophetically is by analogies with the corresponding DAYS and NIGHTS of lower Underworlds.
In the National Underworld the Fourth NIGHT then corresponds to the time period 355 BC-AD 40 and in the Planetary to AD 1893-1913. This Fourth NIGHT can in significant ways be looked upon as a time when the innovations of the previous DAY were integrated as well as a time period which prepared for the breakthrough of the phenomena of the Underworld in question that took place during the Fifth DAY ruled by the energy of Quetzalcoatl - the lord of LIGHT - corresponding to AD 40-434 in the National Underworld and 1913-1932 in the Planetary.
Of course, the kind of phenomena that these time energies are manifesting are very different as they are developed within the frameworks of different levels of consciousness;
Hence, the National Underworld is dominated by a dualist, semi-enlightened, consciousness and the Planetary Underworld is dominated by an endarkened, materialist, consciousness.
This difference between Underworlds clearly shows up in the different phenomena that the time energy of Quetzalcoatl brings forth in them.

When it comes to the National Underworld, all I will point to in this article is that the Fourth NIGHT was the time leading up to the arrival of Jesus. As we may sense for instance from the Dead Sea Scrolls there were signs of the impending new energy of Quetzalcoatl already in the latter part of the Fourth NIGHT. This emerging shift in consciousness expressed itself in a number of Jewish sects, such as the Essenes outside of the established religious framework. What may then be the most obvious breakthrough of this Fifth DAY is the emergence of the Christian religion with its message of love and forgiveness. When it comes to understanding the detailed course of the Fourth NIGHT and its relationship to the breakthrough of the Fifth DAY it is however probably easier to study the Planetary Underworld, if nothing else because in this era there is no lack of historical records. The breakthrough of the Fifth DAY of the Planetary Underworld in 1913 was however not a breakthrough of a new religion, but a breakthrough to the materialist modern world. Even though the latter phenomena are very different in the National Underworld, or in our current Galactic Underworld, we may nonetheless learn a tremendous amount from the rhythm with which the new phenomena were introduced.

If we then initially take a look at what the breakthrough into Quetzalcoatl consciousness meant in the Fifth DAY, 1913-1932, it becomes clear that this is truly the breakthrough of the modern world. In 1913 assembly line production of cars began and it is hard to come up with something that would be more typical of it. As the old autocratic empires - the Chinese, Russian, Ottoman, Austrian and German crumbled, a range of nations appeared that were democracies, or, at the very least, modern states. The introduction of the radio, with the first public broadcasts in the US in 1910 and in Europe in 1913 for the first time allowed for mass telecommunications. Jazz music was born in 1914-1915 and the roaring twenties saw the liberation of women in dress and
behavior. In science, Bohr presented his atomic model based on quantum mechanics in 1913 and Einstein his general theory of relativity in 1915. Kandinsky painted the first piece of non-figurative art in 1913 and a range of ³isms,² such as surrealism, dadaism and futurism surged at the beginning of the DAY. The stuffy world of the autocratic empires was no more. This was the kind of effect that the breakthrough energy of Quetzalcoatl had in the Planetary Underworld.

Yet, and this is what is important to know when we are now entering the Fourth NIGHT of the Galactic Underworld, this breakthrough was prepared for by phenomena and events that occurred already during the Fourth NIGHT of the Planetary Underworld. The first company manufacturing automobiles was for instance established in 1896 (putting out 13 cars in that year). Marconi sent the first transatlantic radiotelegraphic message in 1902 and Ragtime began to make inroads against the all-pervasive Waltz already around 1900. The Russian revolution of 1905 heralded the later downfall of the autocratic empires and especially during the second half of the Fourth NIGHT there was an intensification of things preparing for the breakthrough. Einstein had proposed his special theory of relativity in 1905, but typically this was not taken seriously until experimental proof of it emerged in 1919 and something
similar was the case with Planck¹s fathering of quantum mechanics already in 1900. Cubism began in 1906, preparing for the breakthrough of non-figurative art, but not making it all the way.

I could go on like this and show that critical innovations to some extent were created already during the Fourth NIGHT of the Planetary Underworld, especially its latter half, but that it was only during the Fifth DAY, 1913-32, that they actually broke through and became accepted as phenomena that were perceived as lasting. The relationship between the Fourth NIGHT and the Fifth DAY will be similar in the current Galactic Underworld and I feel the spiritual warriors that want to be part of birthing the new world of oneness should assimilate the knowledge of this rhythm. What should also be mentioned here is that the breakthrough to the modern world in the time period 1913-32 was associated with two synchronistically related catastrophes, World War I 1914-18 and the Spanish Flu in 1918-1919, where the latter actually killed more people than the war. Especially when it comes to World War I it seems evident that the breakthrough into modernity, and especially
democracy, could hardly have taken place without the collapse of the autocratic empires that may be seen as the main outcome of World War I.
Hence, from the perspective of the Mayan calendar DAY and LIGHT does not always mean ³good² or ³happy.² All we can say is that divine creation works itself towards the end result that it is designed to arrive at and that the LIGHT may have consequences that to some are tragic. Generally, it seems that the more inconsistent the world is with the higher purpose of the divine plan, the greater the catastrophes will be. In the Fifth DAY of the Planetary Underworld the autocratic empires were clearly inconsistent with the emerging existential, if certainly not economic, equality that this Underworld brought.

In the National Underworld the Fifth DAY had been followed by the Fifth NIGHT, during the period AD 434-829, which brought the collapse of the Roman Empire through the onslaught of the Huns and Germanic peoples.
This initiated the so-called dark ages in European history. The early Christians that in the beginning of the Fifth DAY had been so inspired by the message of Jesus and the incoming energies had believed that the Kingdom of Heaven was imminent and that Jesus would return to the world.
With the beginning of the Fifth NIGHT this expectation was however thwarted. Thus, in the latter half of the Fifth DAY the Church became organized in a tight hierarchical structure and as the Fifth NIGHT (dominated by the energy of the lord of darkness, Tezcatlipoca) began the Church Father Augustine introduced the idea of the Original Sin in the Christian teaching, Moreover, the emphasis shifted from the resurrection of Christ to his suffering at the cross.

A direct parallel to this scenario unfolded in the beginning of the Fifth NIGHT of the Planetary Underworld in 1932. After the experience of a new freedom in the roaring twenties and the energies would be reversed and a reaction set in. The Stock Exchange crash in New York in 1929 was the forerunner of the Great Depression whose worst year globally speaking was in 1932, the very year that the energies of the Fifth NIGHT became dominant. About a month after the Fifth NIGHT began the Reichstagsfeuer took place in Berlin, which became the pretext for Hitler to take dictatorial power in Germany, and the rest we know.
Typically, people did not initially take this change for real: Following the Stock Exchange crash in New York people in general expected a swift upturn and initially few understood the danger of the rising dictatorships. The Fifth NIGHT of the Planetary Underworld turned into a great reaction against many of the liberating phenomena that had come into existence during the Fifth DAY in the same way as the Fifth NIGHT of the National Underworld became a reaction against the spiritual hopes that Christianity initially had brought.

It is a similar wave movement of energies that we have reasons to expect for the DAYS and NIGHTS ahead in the Galactic Underworld, since these alternating energies are beyond human control. Yet, I would like to emphasize that there is a difference between how we may perceive the energies of the Galactic Underworld and especially the Planetary Underworld. Since the DAYS of the Planetary Underworld meant the manifestation of a very materialist consciousness (since the front side of the human being was endarkened) it is easy to recognize all the concrete physical manifestations that its DAYS brought. In contrast, in our current era, the DAYS of the Galactic Underworld are bringing LIGHT to the intuitive right brain half amounting to a possibility for healing and a breakthrough into spirituality. Since, however, the right brain
half generally is not the one that is behind technological advances, there is little reason to expect that its manifestations will be directly evident in the same way as all the things that came with the materialist Planetary Underworld. In fact, very much of the spiritual breakthroughs that the Galactic Underworld will carry may not at all be visible. This is meant as a reminder for the many, who sometimes see no movement forward in man¹s spiritual evolution. The current change occurs on a subtle, but nonetheless very profound level.

Initially the Fourth NIGHT of the Galactic Underworld, which we have now recently entered, will be a time of integration and then, especially in the second half of the NIGHT there will be more and more phenomena popping up that pave the way for the breakthrough into experiencing the divine presence that will be brought by the Fifth DAY. The shift point for this breakthrough into Quetzalcoatl/Christ energy will take place on November 24, 2006. Following this breakthrough many will experience states of enlightenment previously completely unknown to them and without the guidance of the Mayan calendar it would be easy to believe that the new world has already been born. I have for instance a sense that as we enter this energy of Quetzalcoatl, it will be possible for people to receive the gift of being able to pass on the experience of divine presence (diksha) to others spontaneously, and very possibly this
ability will start to flow between persons in contact with diksha givers. The experiences of divine presence will be much more profound than they are now and maybe the reception of the cosmic LIGHT of this DAY will be experienced directly by the human receivers.
What the Mayan calendar exactly describes is the kind of cosmic and global field changes that produce such collective shifts in consciousness. Yet, I suspect that this spiritual breakthrough will take place in parallel with dramatic natural catastrophes or a collapse of the international monetary system. Following this, on November 19, 2007, the energy of Tezcatlipoca will set in and we will see a very significant reaction, almost certainly led by forces in the West, and particularly the US, that with very forceful methods will try, and probably for at least half a tun be very successful in bringing the world back into the materialist fold and into the old ideals of the Planetary Underworld, but in a much more oppressive form is currently is the case. Incidentally, in case someone doubted, there will not be a need to have a change in rulership
for this to be accomplished and as we saw in the earlier Underworlds the vast majority will follow along. In the Book of Revelation this may be what is referred to as the Beast.

The Galactic Underworld is the Apocalypse and in its latter half the spiritual warriors will be put to the test like never before. By spiritual warrior I here mean a person who stays committed to the higher purpose of evolution in the midst of the many forces that will try to sway her away from this. It is also a person that has integrity and tells the truth and it is only to be expected that the kind of ethical issues that we will be facing under both the energies of Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca will be new and sometimes very difficult to deal with.
Simple habitual responses to the new situations will not be possible requiring a very high degree of taking responsibility for one¹s actions.
The temptations to go along with the energy of Tezcatlipoca will in the Fifth NIGHT be very strong and it will be only too easy to rationalize this. To avoid falling into these traps I feel it is crucial that many people grasp the overall wave movement of time that the true Mayan calendar describes. This will be a very important support for us to be able to continue our missions in the times ahead.

I have here hinted at the possibility, or rather, likelihood of different kinds of disasters in the coming time and many will ask how to avoid being hit by these. I have no answers to this, but feel that the best approach is to ask yourself:
³How do I best serve divine creation and the process towards oneness at the end point of the Galactic Underworld, October 28, 2011?²

This is in my view the best way of living a meaningful life rather than being dictated by fear of things that are still outside of our control. If you are able to find an answer to this question then I recommend that you should stay with it. Yet, although in this article I emphasize the likely difficulties to come the Apocalypse, contrary to popular opinion, does not mean the end of the world. What the book of Revelation describes, often like the Mayan calendar through
sequences of seven steps, is a very turbulent era leading to the New Jerusalem - a state of Oneness with the divine.

The tuns ahead, and especially the shift point between the energies of Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca, will hence make great demands of the spiritual warriors of today. Yet, especially the Fifth DAY is likely to bring great joy and enlightenment through the increasing divine presence in the energy of Quetzalcoatl and there is no reason to try to put a lid on such experiences even though the times may be momentous.
What I want to point out however is the necessity of being aware of the kind of adverse phenomena that will accompany these breakthroughs and even more so the reaction towards materialism and democratic dictatorship that the
energy of Tezcatlipoca will bring. It is thus also to be expected that in the energy of Tezcatlipoca the chaos will be blamed on the spiritual breakthroughs and that the spiritual warriors will become scapegoats.
The main source of knowledge about the wave movement of energies in the time ahead is the true Mayan calendar although, as is common in its history some will work to produce false Mayan calendars leading people to confuse Quetzalcoatl (the energy of light) with Tezcatlipoca (the energy of darkness). The true Mayan calendar is what charts the path to what in Christian theology is called the New Jerusalem, a name for the state of Oneness that completes the Apocalypse that the Galactic Underworld will deliver us to a few more energy shifts down the road.

America: From Freedom to Fascism. Watch for it.
by Mark Yannone
January 28, 2006

I went to see the prescreening of Aaron Russo's
latest movie, America: From Freedom to Fascism, at
the Hilton Phoenix Airport last night. It was a
powerful and engaging film that received a
well-deserved standing ovation from the group of
about 120 adults in attendance, most of whom were
over 30.

The two major topics were the federal income tax and
the Federal Reserve. Minor topics were the New World
Order, vote fraud, education, government lies, and
the police state. The ending contained a call to
action that Russo promised will be significantly
enhanced in the final edition.

A couple of members of the audience mentioned in the
subsequent Q&A session that they were not aware of
most of what was presented. An Arizona State
University teacher said her students were largely
unaware also.

The good news is that everyone in the room was
apparently persuaded by the testimony given by the
members of the Tax Honesty Movement and good folks
like G Edward Griffin. The scenes with Irwin Schiff,
Joe Banister, John Turner, Sherry Jackson Peel,
Larken Rose, Charlie Beale, Bob Schulz, Dave
Champion, Vernie Kuglin, and others were
particularly powerful and persuasive. The feds
definitely stink on ice in this movie--as well they

Bottom line: Aaron Russo has earned his place in the
preferred section of Heaven with this film, and the
nation owes him a large debt of gratitude for having
produced it. Eliciting cheers and tears from the
audience, America: From Freedom to Fascism is so
moving and effective that I wouldn't be surprised to
read that Aaron Russo committed suicide by stabbing
himself in the back four times before the train hit
him, and all copies of the movie have mysteriously

However, if Aaron Russo and the movie survive until
the final release, we should expect to find America:
From Freedom to Fascism in theaters this summer. For
anyone over the age of reason, including the 67
million Americans who no longer file federal income
tax returns, missing this movie will be a costly

Watch for it.

Senators: White House Stalls Katrina Probe
January 24, 2006, ABC/Associated Press
The White House is crippling a Senate inquiry into the government's sluggish response to Hurricane Katrina by barring administration officials from answering questions and failing to hand over documents, senators leading the investigation said Tuesday. In some cases, staff at the White House and other federal agencies have refused to be interviewed by congressional investigators, said the top Republican and Democrat on the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. In addition, agency officials won't answer seemingly innocuous questions about times and dates of meetings and telephone calls with the White House, the senators said. A White House spokesman said the administration is committed to working with separate Senate and House investigations of the Katrina response but wants to protect the confidentiality of presidential advisers. Sen. Susan Collins of Maine, the committee's Republican chair, said "We are entitled to know if someone from the Department of Homeland Security calls someone at the White House during this whole crisis period." She added, "It is completely inappropriate" for the White House to bar agency officials from talking to the Senate committee.

KBR Awarded U.S. Department of Homeland Security Contingency Support Project for Emergency Support Services
January 24 , 2006,
Houston Chronicle/Business Wire
KBR [Kellogg, Brown, and Root] announced today that the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) component has awarded KBR an Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contingency contract to support ICE facilities in the event of an emergency. KBR is the engineering and construction subsidiary of Halliburton. The competitively awarded contract [has] a maximum total value of $385 million over a five-year term. The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities...in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs. The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a national emergency, such as a natural disaster.
Note: $385 million more is channeled to Vice President Dick Cheney's Halliburton to build more prisons to possibly support the rapid development of new programs. What might those new programs be?

Finding happiness outside the GNP
January 23, 2006, San Francisco Chronicle
You don't have to live in a remote mountain kingdom to rise above the world's frantic pursuit of wealth and consumer goods. Anyone can do it, says his Excellency Lyonpo Jigmi Thinley, minister for home and cultural affairs for the Himalayan nation of Bhutan. He wants to encourage others to do as his country has done, which is to seek "Gross National Happiness [GNH]" more than gross national product [GNP]. "What we need," Thinley said in a phone interview Friday, "is a more caring and compassionate society. Bhutan has made Gross National Happiness -- which its officials also call GNH -- its official index for evaluating development. Production-oriented societies suffer from high rates of mental illness, crime, alcoholism, family breakups and personal alienation; their devotion to the profit motive and self-satisfaction undermines human harmony and fosters the plundering of the Earth's resources, he said. "How many governments are truly committed, how many communities are truly committed to equity, to sustainability?" he asked. To achieve GNH, Thinley said, Bhutan has committed itself to sustainable and equitable development, environmental conservation, preservation of culture and good governance.

The Oil Sands Of Alberta
January 22 , 2006, CB
There’s an oil boom going on right now. Not in Saudi Arabia or Kuwait or any of those places, but...in Alberta, Canada. The oilmen up there are...digging up dirt — dirt that is saturated with oil. They’re called oil sands, and if you’ve never heard of them then you’re in for a big surprise because the reserves are so vast in the province of Alberta that they will help solve America’s energy needs for the next century. Within a few years, the oil sands are likely to become more important to the United States than all the oil that comes to us from Saudi Arabia. There are 175 billion barrels of proven oil reserves here. That’s second to Saudi Arabia’s 260 billion but it’s only what companies can get with today’s technology. The estimate of how many more barrels of oil are buried deeper underground is staggering. "We know there’s much, much more there. The total estimates could be two trillion or even higher," says Clive Mather, Shell's Canada chief. "This is a very, very big resource." Very big? That’s eight times the amount of reserves in Saudi Arabia.
Note: For those who fear oil shortages and an energy crisis, here's yet another example of huge, untapped energy reserves. For many other, cleaner options, see http://www.WantToKnow.info/newenergyinformation

We Could Be Ignoring the Biggest Story in Our History
January 18, 2006, Washington Post
The best reporting of...climate change has come from Elizabeth Kolbert in the New Yorker. Her three-part series last spring lucidly explained the harbingers of potential disaster: a shrinking of Arctic sea ice by 250 million acres since 1979; a thawing of the permafrost for what appears to be the first time in 120,000 years; a steady warming of Earth's surface temperature; changes in rainfall patterns that could presage severe droughts of the sort that destroyed ancient civilizations. This month she published a new piece, "Butterfly Lessons," that looked at how these delicate creatures are moving into new habitats as the planet warms. Her real point was that all life, from microorganisms to human beings, will have to adapt, and in ways that could be dangerous and destabilizing. If people such as...Kolbert are right, we are all but ignoring the biggest story in the history of humankind. Kolbert concluded her series last year with this shattering thought: "It may seem impossible to imagine that a technologically advanced society could choose, in essence, to destroy itself, but that is what we are now in the process of doing." The failure of the United States to get serious about climate change is unforgivable, a human folly beyond imagining.

Iceland the First Country to Try Abandoning Gasoline
January 18, 2006, ABC News
Iceland wants to make a full conversion and plans to modify its cars, buses and trucks to run on renewable energy — with no dependence on oil. Iceland has already started by turning water into fuel — hydrogen fuel. Here's how it works: Electrodes split the water into hydrogen and oxygen molecules. Hydrogen electrons pass through a conductor that creates the current to power an electric engine. Hydrogen fuel now costs two to three times as much as gasoline, but gets up to three times the mileage of gas, making the overall cost about the same. As an added benefit, there are no carbon emissions — only water vapor. By the middle of this century, all Icelanders will be required to run their cars only on hydrogen fuel, meaning no more gasoline. Icelanders say they're committed to showing the world that by making fuel from water, it is possible to kick the oil habit.
Note: This is mind-blowing information! Why isn't this amazing news of economical, non-polluting energy sources making top headlines? A video clip of the above ABC News story is available on the ABC website at the link above. A friend of mine invented a similar device only to have it ruthlessly suppressed.

Most powerful hurricanes of 2005 were filled with mysterious lightning
January 9, 2006, NASA
The boom of thunder and crackle of lightning generally mean one thing: a storm is coming. Curiously, though, the biggest storms of all, hurricanes, are notoriously lacking in lightning. Hurricanes blow, they rain, they flood, but seldom do they crackle. During the record-setting hurricane season of 2005, three of the most powerful storms--Rita, Katrina, and Emily--did have lightning, lots of it. And researchers would like to know why. Richard Blakeslee of the Global Hydrology and Climate Center (GHCC) in Huntsville, Alabama, was one of a team of scientists who explored Hurricane Emily. "Hurricanes are most likely to produce lightning when they're making landfall," says Blakeslee. But there were no mountains beneath the "electric hurricanes" of 2005—only flat water. It's tempting to think that, because Emily, Rita and Katrina were all exceptionally powerful, their sheer violence somehow explains their lightning. But Blakeslee says that this explanation is too simple. "Other storms have been equally intense and did not produce much lightning," he says. "There must be something else at work."
Note: A number of researchers suspect there may have been clandestine involvement in Katrina and other recent hurricanes, possibly using HAARP technologies, which have been well documented. For a good summary of this, click here. For more on HAARP, click here.

Hurricanes and humans changing Gulf's nature
Oceanographer: 'Nothing's been like this'

A diver surveys a Gulf Coast reef for bleaching corals and physical damage caused by Hurricane Rita.

OVER THE NORTHERN GULF COAST (AP) -- Last year's record hurricane season didn't just change life for humans. It changed nature, too.
Everywhere scientists look, they see disrupted patterns in and along the Gulf of Mexico. Coral reefs, flocks of sea birds, crab- and shrimp-filled meadows and dune-crowned beaches were wrapped up in -- and altered by -- the force of hurricanes Katrina, Rita and Dennis.
"Nothing's been like this," said Abby Sallenger, a U.S. Geological Survey oceanographer, during a recent flight over the northern Gulf Coast to study shoreline changes.
For him, the changes are mind-boggling: Some barrier islands are nearly gone; on others, beaches are scattered like bags of dropped flour.
Hurricanes have been kneading the Gulf Coast like putty for eons, carving out inlets and bays, creating beaches and altering plant and animal life -- but up to now, the natural world has largely been able to rebound. Trees, marine life and shoreline features tourists and anglers enjoyed in recent years were largely the same types as those 17th century buccaneers and explorers encountered.
But scientists say the future could be different. Nature might not be able to rebound so quickly. The reason: the human factor.
"Natural systems are resilient and bounce back," said Susan Cutter, a geographer with the University of South Carolina. "The problem is when we try to control nature, rather than letting her do what she does."
The seas are rising, the planet is getting hotter and commercial and residential development is snowballing. Add those factors to a predicted increase in nasty hurricanes and what results is a recipe for potentially serious natural degradation, some say.
"It may bring about a situation (in which) the change is so rapid, it's something that's very different from what the ecosystem experienced over the last three, four thousand years," said Kam-biu Liu, a Louisiana State University professor and hurricane paleoscientist. "We may be losing part of our beaches, we may lose our coastal wetlands, and our coastal forests may change permanently to a different kind of ecosystem."
Between 2004 and 2005, "we've basically demolished our coastline from Galveston (Texas) to Panama City, Florida," said Barry Keim, the state climatologist in Louisiana. "It's getting to the point that we might have to rethink what our coastal map looks like."
The Gulf, scientists say, won't turn into an environmental wasteland, but it could be less rich in flora and fauna.
Surveys of the washed out Chandeleur Islands, an arc of barrier islands off the coast of Louisiana, found nesting grounds for brown pelicans, royal terns, sandwich terns and black skimmers gone.
"Hopefully the birds will be resilient enough to move to other areas," said Tom Hess, a biologist with the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. "We will have to see."
Salt water spread by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita killed marsh grasses across the Louisiana coast, leaving little left to eat for Louisiana's most hunted bird -- the duck.
"Most of the marsh where that salt water sat for a long time looks dead. It looks like it is does extremely late in the winter and you've had several extreme frosts," said Robert Helm, a state waterfowl biologist. "Where we found birds, they seemed to be concentrated in the habitat that was not impacted by the storm."
Duck hunters ask themselves: If Louisiana's abundant wetlands keep getting knocked out, will the ducks head to greener fields?
"You don't go to the restaurant, find it empty, and hang around," said Charlie Smith, a duck hunter.
Katrina and Rita didn't only kill plants. They annihilated more than 100 square miles (256 square kilometers) of wetlands in Louisiana alone, scattering huge chunks of soft marshy earth.
"The hurricanes may have changed habitat in ways that we have not even begun to assess," said Harriet Perry, a fishery expert with the University of Southern Mississippi.
A lot of things are happening under the water, too.
With their towering waves -- well over 50 feet (15 meters) high during Katrina -- hurricanes move huge volumes of mud and sediment on the ocean bottom, burying clam and oyster beds and seagrass meadows where crabs, shrimps and fish hide and feed. Can the sea plants spring back?
"It depends on the light penetration, how deep they are buried, and factors like that," said John Dindo, a marine scientist and assistant director of the Dauphin Island Sea Lab in Alabama.
Farther out, where the continental shelf drops off, the wild seas kicked up by the hurricanes damaged the Gulf's coral reefs.
After Rita's 30-plus-foot (9-plus-meter) waves, surveys of the coral at the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary 100 miles (160 kilometers) off the coast of Louisiana and Texas showed damage to about 5 percent of the reef. Brain and star coral was toppled and smashed into other coral heads. About 3 feet (one meter) of sand was dispersed on sand flats in the reef where trigger fish and queen conch burrow and nest.
Also, a large plume of contaminated runoff from the mainland's towns and industries befouled the reef for a couple of days, said G.P. Schmahl, the sanctuary's manager.
Coral reefs are resilient, for the most part, but like much else in nature along the Gulf Coast they could be devastated by an onslaught of powerful hurricanes and warming seas. A coral reef near Jamaica, for example, was wiped out by Hurricane Allen in 1980, Schmahl said.
"If they're hit continually with a whole variety of stressors they may not be able to recover, and that's the big concern right now," he said.
Among fish, species shift locations when runoff from towns, septic systems and farms causes algae blooms or storms change salinity levels in coastal bays and channels. Still, not all changes are detrimental: When Gulf commercial and recreational fishermen are knocked out of the water in storms, overfished species like the red snapper get some breathing room.
Nor are the effects confined to the water or the shoreline. Go inland, and millions of trees -- cypress, gum, pine, oak -- were snapped like toothpicks. Wild fires fueled by fallen timber break out and kill even more trees. And plant diseases like citrus canker and soybean rust can be spread by hurricanes from one region to the next.
The Gulf is in the midst of flux -- heavily developed, heavily fished and buffeted by climate change and storms. It's becoming a perfect place for oceanographers, marine biologists, geologists and geographers to study, said Steven F. DiMarco, an ocean researcher Texas A&M University.
"I think," he said, "people are looking to the Gulf of Mexico ever more as a microcosm of the world."

Should there be massive problems, as there were during the tsunami and Katrina, if you find out organizations that will be helping out, please email me, so we can keep a master list for people to refer to.
I have another email address: ladybroadoak@gmail.com.
All information we get will be posted on my blog, www.ladybroadoak.blogspot.com.
we can use, if it becomes necessary.

I will strip all information together to make a master list.
Please try to get URLs, phone numbers, contact people and any pertinent information about what the organizations are or might be doing together before you email. The more specific you are about what is needed, the more helpful the information becomes.
Please SHARE all this information with as many people as you are able.

As during Katrina, there will be Red Cross trainings somewhere near you. You CAN get involved. But there are also loads of very fantastic initiatives outside the government and the Red Cross who do very good work and need support.

If someone is keeping a blog, or doing messages about their involvement, please send that information along and I'll try to figure out a way to get that information out to people, too.

The more we work together, the higher the energy will be able to muster -- in order to help out and be of service. FEMA is none too quick on helping, remember!

And to those of you having "symptoms" and warnings, all my blessings!

ALLIANCE. Holding together brings good fortune indeed. An alliance provides mutual support. Yielding, devoted to those below. Examine the divination, sublimely persevering. No error or harm. One is firmly in the center. Some are not calm; they push the limits, above and below. They come late and try to lead. This would be unfortunate. One's Dao would be exhausted indeed. Wise rulers of old set up myriad political alliances to connect all the provinces.

Uh huh and I just predicted for Molucca/Indonesia
early morning AM on Jan 26th for up to a 7+ to come in
by Jan 31 and it came in at Banda sea today-which is
right next door. BAsed upon increased symptoms for this area, increased
symptoms triggered BY GRB's,
( I have all the solar and
Grb site, up on my Global maps section) weird polar
motion, a couple of CME's- we just had two of them
within this week, etc.
PS I have added a map for all known military bases for
the US too, since I get many symps which do not show
up as quakes, volcs, storms-so wherever I feel those
symps I have to go through a list of causes for what I
feel before I try to determine it will be a quake.
9 times out of 10 I usually get it right.
So when I feel
something for a certain area- I go look up the weathers
at maps first, then check for fires, then check for
volcs, then check for possible military base, etc. But
sure is a hassle to feel all of it including possible
bomb blasts. I posted in July, July 4th when NASA sent
up that rocket to bomb blast a meteror, that shortly
after it went off, I felt all of the volcanoes world
wide react to that bomb blast. I ranted and raved
about that one. And have mentioned many times too any
nuke blast will wobble the pole, and sent in several
articles on this too.

(Gamma ray chart on post below)
Earlier today, I was notified of a GRB (gamma ray burst) had occurred
just two days ago. It is being reported as possibly the longest GRB ever
recorded. This burst was initially reported as lasting for 30 seconds, but later
analysis of Swift data shows significant gamma-ray activity as much as
700 seconds after the initial burst. This makes it one of the longest
bursts on record, coincidentally just one day after another extremely
long burst was found (GRB 060123).

Swift's X-Ray Telescope also detected the burst. It had an unusual X-ray
light curve. It was initially flat in brightness then showed several
flares of brightness after about 100 seconds. This may be due to clumps
of gas or dust a few million kilometers away from the burst reflecting
its initial brightness (essentially, an echo of light bouncing off of
material near the burst).

An optical afterglow was detected with the 1.34 meter Tautenberg
telescope, and confirmed by the Swift Ultraviolet/Optical Telescope and
later by several observatories. Spectra taken at the monster 10-meter
Keck telescope indicates a 'redshift' of this burst.

Dragon manifested after Asian tsunami

Sea level rise 'is accelerating'
There will be increased flooding of low-lying areas when there are storm surges

Dr John Church
Global sea levels could rise by about 30cm during this century if current trends continue, a study warns.
Australian researchers found that sea levels rose by 19.5cm between 1870 and 2004, with accelerated rates in the final 50 years of that period.

The research, published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters, used data from tide gauges around the world.

The findings fit within predictions made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

The IPCC's Third Assessment Report, published in 2001, projected that the global average sea level would rise by between 9 and 88cm between 1990 and 2100.

In an attempt to reduce the scale of uncertainty in this projection, the Australian researchers have analysed tidal records dating back to 1870.

The data was obtained from locations throughout the globe, although the number of tidal gauges increased and their locations changed over the 130-year period.

These records show that the sea level has risen, and suggest that the rate of rise is increasing.

Over the entire period from 1870 the average rate of rise was 1.44mm per year.

Over the 20th Century it averaged 1.7mm per year; while the figure for the period since 1950 is 1.75mm per year.

Although climate models predict that sea level rise should have accelerated, the scientists behind this study say they are the first to verify the trend using historical data.

Floods and surges

If the acceleration continues at the current rate, the scientists warn that sea levels could rise during this century by between 28 and 34cm.
Dr John Church, a scientist with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation based in Tasmania and an author of the study, said that higher sea levels could have grave effects on some areas.

"It means there will be increased flooding of low-lying areas when there are storm surges," he told the Associated Press.

"It means increased coastal erosion on sandy beaches; we're going to see increased flooding on island nations."

There is now a consensus among climate scientists that rising atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases such as carbon dioxide are the major factor behind rising temperatures.

Increased temperatures can lead to higher sea-levels through several mechanisms including the melting of glaciers and thermal expansion of sea water.

Through the 1997 Kyoto protocol, industrialised countries have committed to cut their combined emissions to 5% below 1990 levels by 2008-2012. But the US and Australia have withdrawn from the treaty.

Dr Church urged: ""We do have to reduce our emissions but we also have to recognise climate change is happening, and we have to adapt as well."

*Our Future ? According to MAYAN CALENDAR*

*New Revelations and the Next Nine Years*

The Mayan calendar is NOT an instrument for tracking the procession of
time as previously thought, but as a meter and measure of the evolution
of human consciousness.

*The Next Nine Years*

/A thought-provoking analysis of the Mayan Calendar according to Ian Lungold/

Carl J. Calleman Ph.D., is a biochemical scientist from Sweden. For 30
years he has worked in labs performing microbiology experiments. Most of
his work was investigating how pollution causes disease to proliferate.
Eight years ago he trained his attention on the Mayan calendar to see
what correlations or sets of facts could be proven not just "studied" as
the archeologists have done. What he uncovered with his newfound "hobby"
is quickly changing the world and the way we live with it. Dr. Calleman
has scientifically proven the Schedule of Creation and Evolution over
the last 16.4 billion years (from the Big Bang forward).

Dr. Calleman has lectured about the Mayan calendar in nine different
countries and was one of the main speakers at the conference about the
Mayan calendar organized by the Indigenous Council of the Americas in
Merida, Yucatan, 1998. He is the author of Maya-hypotesen (in Swedish,
1994), Solving the Greatest Mystery of Our Time: The Mayan Calendar
(Garev, Coral Springs and London, 2001)from which interested readers may
gain a more extended background to the ideas presented in this article,
and a forthcoming book in English, Enlightenment: The Mayan Calendar as
Our Guide to the Future (Acalan, Albuquerque, 2003).Mr. Ian Lungold
entered the scene for his discovery of a simple formula to find any day
on the Mayan calendar from the Gregorian calendar thereby providing
access to the Mayan calendar for every man, woman and child on Earth.
Dr. Calleman and Lungold are working together to expose this vital
information. Dr. Calleman is in Europe and Asia and Lungold has the
American continents as his responsibility.

*Why the Mayan Calendar?*

Why should anyone be interested in the Mayan calendar? We have the
Gregorian calendar? Isn't one calendar enough? Perhaps not.

Our culture, as opposed to indigenous cultures, is cut off from our
natural surroundings and to the "Natural Cycles" of life. One could say
we are fixated or even addicted to convenience and glitz. Probably less
than 5% of the people you know could tell you what phase the moon is in.
Our mental disconnection from the underlying patterns of our evolvement
as the human race has caused an increasing unbalance of emotion. We
exhibit this with crime, pollution and wars. As a result, Mother Earth's
upset is expressed in "weird weather" such as earthquakes and volcanoes,
simply because we are not paying attention anymore!

If we seriously want to heal our relationship with Mother Earth, we must
spend some "quality time" paying attention to these natural cycles.
Doing things like watching a moonrise, sitting through a sunset, or
finding North, South, East and West from where you are now. These are
natural cycles.

Anyone who takes an interest in the ancient culture of the Maya will
soon realize that this people had an understanding of time which was
vastly different from our own, and many have come to use it for their
own spiritual evolution.

The Gregorian calendar (and many calendars from other cultures) is
basically tied to agriculture, i.e., helping people to keep track of the
agricultural year. For agricultural reasons, it has been necessary to
arrive at a very exact estimate of the astronomical year and to keep
each day of the year frozen with regard to the position the earth is in
during its orbit around the sun. Such a calendar is useful for telling
us when to sow and harvest, etc.

The ancient peoples of this planet, however, also had a divine calendar
which was founded on the 360 day year. The Maya totally ignored the
solar cycle as the center of their consciousness All Mayan calendar
dates, including personal birthdays, dedications, and most sacred
ceremonial events were measured in 360 day periods called tuns
(pronounced "tunes.")

According to the Maya, each day in Creation has its own sacred energy
and purpose. There are 260 different combinations of 20 different Day
Lord Energies or "Sacred Sun Signs" (light energy sent by the Sun), and
13 different Galactic Energies or "Tones" sent as light frequencies from
the Central Sun of our galaxy. The Central Sun of our galaxy is The One
Giver of Movement and Measure.

Each of the Day Lords ? or "Sacred Sun Signs" ? has a personality and
each of the Galactic Energies ? or "tones" ? have a purpose or intent.
This combination gives each day a "personality" and "intent." By
following the days on the Mayan calendar, you become entrained or
synchronized with the natural cycles that are timed by this calendar.
Thus your time becomes more natural and less mechanical. No sweat, no
strain, just flow of attention on what day it is.

But the Mayan calendar has even broader and more profound implications.

As the true meaning of the calendar is solved, it becomes clear that we
are living in a creation that evolves according to a pre-set schedule,
i.e., the Maya were keeping track of the flow, rate, and intent of
Creation itself or the evolution of consciousness throughout Creation.

You have heard that history repeats itself. This is now proven fact.

There is a repeating pattern to all of Creation. Quantum physics has
proven this over and over in the organization of matter. There is a
pattern of intentions and events, as well. We ? or rather Consciousness
? have been down this same road seven times before over the last 16
billion years. Each of these cycles of Creation runs 20 times faster
than the last one. The same amount of Creation is paced 20 times
tighter. This is why time seems to be going so fast. It is not "time"
but Creation itself that is accelerating.

There are scheduled impulses on the part of Creation that are affecting
global events today, and during the next nine years until the Mayan
calendar ends near 2012.

*What Does the Mayan Calendar Mean to Us?*

It means that we will have the capability to see the patterns and flow
of interest and action across humanity. Consciousness is becoming more
aware of who and what it is. Consciousness is opening the door to see
how we all work together ? AS ONE ? to manifest or create our own reality.

If you are able to pay attention to the unfolding pattern of Creation,
this is what you will be conscious of. The speed of change and the
continued disclosure of the nature of Creation will become a stabilizing
force in your existence ? not a confusing tumble of cause and effect,
accident and loss.

There is a formula that goes like this: "Peace of Mind" comes when
persons or a society are "centered." Centered-ness comes from certainty.
Certainty comes from only one place: the recognition of patterns. So
when a person or society has recognized a pattern as great as all of
Creation, there is great certainty and centered-ness ? and there is
great Peace of Mind.

This is our challenge: to educate humanity that the changes scheduled as
per the Mayan calendar are for the uplifting of all. They are the sure
steps of the continued evolution of Consciousness and the increase in
personal choice of experience.

*Details of the Mayan Calendar*

The actual pattern of Creation described by the Mayan calendar looks
like a pyramid which consists of nine levels or cycles. The bottom level
or cycle in the pyramid represents the longest period of time, i.e.,
16.4 billion years ago and is called the Cellular level of Creation
(first live cells). The second level or cycle from the bottom of the
pyramid is 20 times shorter, i.e., 840 million years ago and is called
the Mammalian level of Creation (first live births).

Continuing up the pyramid in this fashion with each level becoming 20
times shorter than the latter, the third level ,i.e., 41 million years
ago is the Family level (family relationships). The fourth level, i.e.,
2 million years ago, is the Tribal level (Homo Sapiens/tools). The fifth
level, i.e., 102,000 years ago is the Cultural level
(agriculture/religion). The sixth level, i.e., 5,116 years ago is the
National level (sovereign nations/laws). The seventh level, i.e., 1755
AD is the planetary level (internet/global economy). The eighth level,
January 4, 1999, is the Galactic level (ethical considerations). And the
ninth level, i.e., February 10, 2011, is the Universal level (conscious

*Here is a quick run through of the previous cycles and the
consciousness that each level produced:*

Cellular cycle ? beginning 16.4 billion years ago, developed the
consciousness of Action/Reaction.

Mammalian cycle ? beginning 820 million years ago, developed the
consciousness of Stimulus/Response.

Familial cycle ? beginning 41 million years ago, developed the
consciousness of Stimulus/Individual Response.

Tribal cycle ? beginning 2 million years ago, developed the
consciousness of Similarities/Differences.

Cultural cycle ? beginning 102,000 years ago, developed the
consciousness of Reasons.

National cycle ? beginning in the year 3115 B.C., developed the
consciousness of Law.

Planetary cycle ? beginning in the year 1755 A.D., developed the
consciousness of Power.

Galactic cycle ? beginning January 5, 1999, developing the consciousness
of Ethics.

Universal cycle ? beginning February 10, 2011, will be developing the
unlimited ability of Conscious Co-Creation.

Looking at the timing and the product of each of the nine cycles listed
above, we can see an orderly progression of the development of
consciousness and our abilities to interact with the universe.

During the First cycle, all of the physical laws, chemical compounds,
star fields, then solar systems and planets were developed.

In the Second cycle, individual cells which were the product of the
Cellular cycle started developing stimulus/response and the survival
mechanism. Stimulus/response differs from action/reaction in the amount
of consciousness present.

The Third cycle was the recognition of individual consciousness and the
establishment of the family relationship (recognition of individuals)
rather than a herd, school or flock mentality.

In the Fourth cycle, consciousness developed the tool, which we call
"The Mind" to detect the similarities and differences in our experience.

During the Fifth cycle, the leading edge of consciousness was developing
reasons for any and every thing. These "Shared Reasons," are the basis
of all culture.

In the Sixth cycle, the concept of law or right and wrong developed.

In the Seventh cycle, which is from 1755 A.D. to present, we have been
gathering power derived from natural laws.

Each time that this pattern has repeated it has done so 20 times faster
than the previous cycle.

This quite handily explains why time seems to be speeding up. Time is
not speeding up. It is creation itself that is speeding up with more and
more happening in less and less time.

We now know exactly where we are in this repeating pattern. This
information makes it possible to put forth educated guesses as to the
content of our future. This is similar to using a map when you are
traveling. In this case, we now have a roadmap of time, consciousness
and events. Our newsletter, /The 3rd Night News,/ is intended to present
insights as to what the Mayan calendar predicts our consciousness will
be experiencing.

As of January 5, 1999 we started the Galactic cycle which is the 8th of
9 levels of consciousness described by the Mayan calendar. Each of the
stages or days and nights of this cycle last for 360 days each. We are
now, as of December 10, 2003, in the 360-day section called the 3rd
Night. This section will end on December 4, 2004. On December 5, 2004,
we will begin what is called the 4th day of this Galactic cycle.

In the rest of this article, I will be discussing what the Mayan
calendar indicates our experience will be during the 3rd Night.

It is now, during the 8th Level ? Galactic cycle, that the consciousness
of ethics has come forward and can be seen to be further organizing the
powers that now exist to ensure the continued survival and evolution of
the human race and our playground Mother Earth. So here we are with
Ethics overriding Power in this 8th ? Galactic consciousness cycle.

What we see around us in the world and the society in which we live, is
the exposure of lie after Powerful lie built on top of layers of lies.

Uncovering a lie enables the TRUTH. While this can be very disorienting
or disquieting it is very much an exercise of consciousness and should
be recognized as such. As this process continues we will come to fully
realize that each of us individually is the basis of truth. You are the
truth (you the spiritual being) and whatever you have experienced are
only reflections.

About two months ago, I received an insight concerning the timing of the
Galactic cycle's ? 7 Days and 6 Nights. It came to me that since each of
these days and nights consisted of 360 days and since a clock face is
also a 360 degree measuring device, that the two could be used together
to show the processions of the Galactic cycle as "hours." 1 Day is 24
hours, I simply divided 360 by 24, which equals 15. That means that
every 15 days that happened on the Gregorian calendar, are a one "hour"
tick on the face of an a.m./p.m. 24-hour clock of the Galactic cycle?s
3rd Night. Now what we can do is look back at the previous 3rd Night and
see what took place at each "hour" to get a good read on what we might
experience during this 3rd Night.

Each of the "hours" during the previous Planetary Cycle, running from
1755, were 300 days long each, that is they were 20 times longer than
the current 15 day hours.

So what does this mean to us?

This can best be understood by using the metaphor of planting a seed.

During the First Day there is the seed itself ? an inception, a new
beginning or impetus to change or flow in a new direction where new
perceptions become available. That if followed by the First Night which
is an opportunity to apply the enlightenment just received from
Creation's flow. This would be the germination of the seed planted in
the dark soil or the developments of new points of view.

The Second Day is when duality is put on display. The seed sprouts up
out of the ground and displays two leaves. The essential duality is
always a new viewpoint that is overriding the "old" consciousness. As it
has come down in human history, this has always been a time of civil
turmoil. We have just completed the Second Night of the Galactic cycle
from December 19, 2001, to December 14, 2002. The Second Night is a
period of dark when polarized factions come to blows over their differences.

The Third Day is another period of Light. The seed's root system
develops and the second set of leaves will be a permanent part of the
plant. It is the establishment of the new consciousness as viable. In
human history lies or failed systems are disclosed so that progress is
not blocked.. Hold onto your hat as the truths pour forth from mid 2002
through most of 2003. The Third Night is another period of Dark. The
seedling set of leaves are dropped from the plant as another set of
leaves spring from the top. These are at 90 degrees from the last set.
In human history failed systems have been jettisoned, usually by force,
during this section.

The Fourth Day, another period of Light and in a plant's life, the tap
root grows deep to firmly attach the plant while the stock thickens and
branches form. It is a period of expansion of the foundations laid. In
human history the "new" point of view and way of doing things takes
dominance. For instance the empire of Greece was built during this
section. The Fourth Night is a period of Dark once again or the
application of new procedures. During this time a plant is multiplying
its leaves and root system like mad. In human history it has usually
been a period of rebuilding and a time of healing.

The Fifth Day is a period of Light and, in fact, is the brightest period
of light in the entire cycle. In a plant's life this is when new
chemicals are produced that carry the message to form buds. In human
history, it was this section when Art was invented, the message of Jesus
moved over the earth, Mr. Einstein discovered the theory of relativity
and when America rose to world power with the victory of WWI. The Fifth
Night or period of dark that follows is also the darkest period of each
cycle.. In a plant's life this is the growth of the bud. In your
history, this was puberty. In all of human history this has been a time
of great physical hardship or major conflicts, i.e., the Ilionian Ice
Age, the Neanderthals going extinct, Rome falling, and WWII are glaring

The Sixth Day we return to a period of "Enlightenment." This is the time
of flowers for the plant. For you personally, it was adolescence. In
human history this was the creation of the first tools, the first
attempts at agriculture and constructed shelter, the Renaissance and,
most recently, the Flower Children Movement of the '60s. The Sixth
Night, one last period of Dark in the cycle follows. In the plant's life
the flowers wilt and die setting the stage for fruit development or of
seedpods that will dry. This is what happened to the Maya civilization
right on queue. Throughout human history there have been conflicts and
revolts during this period, the most recent of these having been the
Viet Nam War.

The Seventh Day is once again a period of Light, a time of readiness for
something new and different, a time of ascension or going from one level
to the next higher level. The plant spreads the seeds or drops the fruit
to begin again a thousand times over. In human history it was during
these repeating sections that Consciousness developed Homo Sapiens,
agriculture and domesticated herds, signed treaties to establish the
sovereignty of nations and their people, and put up the Internet thereby
creating a planetary consciousness in 1992.

This pattern of Creation, an action plan, can be seen happening
everywhere in the universe ? from subatomic particles to galaxies. Over
and over: "As above, so below." Notice that we go from a Light section
to another new Light section. In other words, after the seventh day,
there is no seventh night? We begin the next cycle with another day. So,
you see the deck is stacked. Creation is on our side and always has been.

It is also important to note that this chart in no way conflicts with
either the Creationist or Evolutionist points of view. In fact, it
marries the two. No matter how uncomfortable that concept may be at the
outset, the facts that Creation has evolved are indisputable because
that evolution and schedule continues today. In fact, the evolution of
all consciousness has accelerated to such a degree that we can watch it
unfold step by step as in time-lapse photography.

To "shed even more light" (pardon the pun), on the events that occur
during the days and nights of a particular cycle, let's use the Sixth
Cycle or National Cycle as an example and use religious development as
our "event" taking place during each one of the 13 sections or Seven
Days and Six Nights. Only, in this instance, we are going to focus
primarily on the Days of this cycle since the Days are the periods of
enlightenment when new perceptions are gained by Consciousness.

The First Day of the National Cycle occurred from 3115 BC to 2721 BC.
This was the time that the Sumerians worshipped An or Anu. Anu was seen
as an omnipotent Creator God who had to share his space with a host of
household, workplace, weather and nature gods of all kinds.

The Second Day of the National Cycle occurred from 2326 BC to 2938 BC.
During this section Abraham moved to Cana in 2300 BC.

The Third Day of the National Cycle was from 1538 to 1144. This was the
time of Moses and the beginning of Monotheism (The Truth coming into
sharper focus).

The Fourth Day of the National Cycle was from 749 BC to 355 BC. Isaiah
was from the year 748 BC; Buddha from 552 BC; Confucius from 551 BC;
Zoroaster from 550 BC; Pythagoras from 550 BC, Deuteron-Isaiah from 550 BC.

The Fifth Day of the National cycle was from 40 AD to 434 AD. During
this period Paul took the message of Jesus to the world and Christianity
was born. Buddhism started in China in 60 AD and the Talmudic and
Judaism religions began at this time. In 40 AD Quetzalcoatl, the Maya
Creator god, appeared in Teotihuacán as a Christ-like personage with a
very similar message. (The Fifth Night of the National Cycle occurred
from 434 AD to 829 and was when Islam was inspired in 632 AD.)

The Sixth Day of the National Cycle was from 829 AD to 1223 AD. At this
time there was a general expansion of Christianity to Northern and
Eastern Europe. The Crusades and the development of the Papacy happened
here as well as the second Quetzalcoatl where in the Maya/Toltec city of
Chichen Itza walked the earth. (The Sixth Night was when the second wave
of Islam came in from 1223 AD to 1617 AD.)

The Seventh Day of the National Cycle occurred from 1617 AD to 2011 AD.
During this period, Christianity expanded once again starting with the
Pilgrims in 1620 AD.) We could go through other events such as
scientific principles, communication methods, the development of
political ideals, and we would see that the developments in each field
conform to this same schedule. In fact, everything we know of what
happened when follows this schedule. There is no mistake. This is no
16.4 billion year-long coincidence!

*Future Implications*

So, what are the implications for our future? Let's take another look at
where we fall on the Mayan calendar. As we have shown earlier, we are
now in the Eighth Level or Galactic Cycle of the calendar. Each of the
13 sections or each Day and Night consists of 360 days. And we are now
entering the Third Day. What typically happens during the Third Day? If
we look at the Third Day in each of the other cycles, we can see that a
very important shift in the progression of the evolution of our
consciousness takes place. Remember, this is where in the plant the
development of a root system and second set of leaves will become a part
of the plant. In human history it is during this section that lies or
failed systems are disclosed so that progress is not blocked. It is
where truths are going to pour forth from mid 2002 to 2003.

During the Cellular Cycle's Third Day, Consciousness on the level of
action/reaction or atomic mind, was receiving the inspiration to
organize from clouds of stars into galaxies. During the Mammalian
Cycle's Third Day, there was the Cambrian Explosion, an underwater
explosion of evolution where soft-tissue animals were evolving into all
sorts of hard-shelled animals at a tremendous rate. The truth about the
use of calcium as a survival tactic became known to Consciousness at
this time.

During the Familial Cycle's Third Day, the monkeys that had shown up in
the First Day of this cycle evolved into the first tailless apes,
Pliopithecus, Drophecus and Ramapithecus appeared. This was a direct
step away from "all fours and a tail living" and toward Homo erectus.

During the Tribal Cycle's Third Day, Neanderthal man came into being all
around the Mediterranean and dotting Europe. During the National Cycle's
Third Day, there was Moses and the Ten Commandments as well as geometry
and astrology developed by the Babylonians. The Book of the Dead was
collected in Egypt, the Stonehenge was built, and obelisks in Egypt were
used as clocks. It was the start of the Bronze Age and the four basic
elements became known in India as earth, air, fire and water. In other
words, certain facts came out during these times that were very basic to
our understanding of life today.

During the Planetary Cycle's Third Day, there was the Abolitionist
Movement to end slavery, the first telegraph messages, the first bike
and first steam-powered vehicle. Armand Fizeau discovered the speed of
light. Carl Steinheil built the first electric clock. Railroads were
complete across all major countries and the first negative photography
was done. In short, the Industrial Revolution gook a giant step forward
with the advent of electricity and steam power. Also the discovery of
gold in California started a migration from all over the world that
really set humanity in motion.
