We’ve spoken many times about the major threats from space which in predictive linguistics make up the “space goat farts” part of modelspace. This is where alien abductions, UFO sighting, huge outbursts from the Sun, and the general off-planet war with aliens is being waged. Not that I buy all of it, since remember it’s the language that’s real, not necessarily the coming of aliens with a cookbook and a roasting pan like in the Twilight Zone episode.
On the other hand, the whole notion of “Sun disease” traces back to the earliest of data runs and we live on a rock which is extremely vulnerable to Carrington Event type outbursts from established phenomena (e.g. seen and blessed by science) like coronal mass ejections.
Which is precisely why you need to click over to the UK Independent report on “Tom Bogdan” ‘The sky at night stops me from sleeping‘” which gets into the nuts and bolts of just how vulnerable Earth is.
Predictive linguistics has a “data wall” beyond which (mid 2013) there is no more data in the model. Whether that’s because Clif sails off into the sunset (one possibility), or the Sun burps a big blast of energy in our direction and that ends “electronic life on Earth” taking out the national power grid and putting us into the Stone Age, can be endlessly debate, but only until March 2013 when the evidence ought to be unveiled before us.
Key thing to change in our thinking is it’s long longer a data GAP – it’s a data WALL beyond which humans don’t seem to be communicating on the ‘net anymore, at least in a simple-to-spider way, like it is now.
Whether it comes about because solar flares, earth quaking itself to death, or simply the US goes offline because we can afford the 50% of energy which is brought in to keep the lights on – that being purchased with quickly diminishing US Dollars – doesn’t matter. Figure two years to the biggest changes we’ve seen in our lifetimes and I’m guessing we’ll be in the ballpark.
I trust you’ve been sketching the broad, imaginary, line being described by earthquakes reported on the USGS site? Not that it matters whether comet Elenin, or planetary alignments like tomorrow’s eclipse can be modified, but
it runs from between Anchorage and Fairbanks down through Washington State where there was a 2.6 offshore yesterday, down through that quake swarm up around Hawthorne, NV, most recently a 3.0 on June 9th, then one down through Baja California, off the west coast of Mexico and then great circling down to Chile.
If you’d like to ponder the Pacific Plate cracking, and you don’t like to think about being a Pop Tart for the Sun, then action around the Pacific ring of fire including the 6.4 yesterday in the Mullucan Sea ought to dimple your ‘worry stone’ a fair bit. And the 3.5 on the Island of Hawaii overnight is also of interest, though on a body-count basis, the 3.6 southwest of Palm Springs, California this morning will like create more buzz.
On the other side of the country, events in Keene, NY are of interest where a huge (biggest in state history) landslide is causing at least one house to be moved – and maybe more will follow.
The UK Guardian has an interesting article on extreme weather ahead, too, calling the increase in environmental disasters a kind of “global weirding.”
From where we sit, that looks about right. Or Earth is just doing what the cats do when they get fleas: Trying to scratch them off.
Government Power Grab?
Under the heading Police State USA, World net Daily’s coverage of the new Cedar Falls, Iowa law requiring businesses and apartment owners to put lock boxes outside for emergency use/first responders raises from BIG constitutional questions.
Down at the WuJo
Been a while since we rolled out the big mat so science and observe3d reality can duke it out, so how’s about we do that?
Don’t want to sound too wacky, but this one has the wife and I looking over our metaphorical shoulders. We were headed up I-5 Memorial Day weekend doing the drive from Phoenix to Eugene to visit relatives. Regular route traveled many times.
Spent the night 150 miles or so below Sacramento and got off early Sunday. Passed a couple of familiar landmarks and a rest area, cruised around a long curve to the right and all of a sudden we were near the Livermore city limits and headed for Frisco.
Got turned around and spent 40 minutes headed East on the 205 to get back to I-5. Wife and I are agreed that only a few (3-4?) minutes passed between the rest area and showing up near Livermore…did not pass the well marked I-5 intersection…did not pass any of a number of features you would remember (bridges, golf course, city buildings, etc)….just boom and there we were 30 plus miles out of our way.
We were still trying to figure that out when a little farther up I-5, sign says next town 32 miles…32 miles later by the speedometer we arrive at the town….except it took us 40 minutes to do the 32 miles at 65MPH…at that point we both started looking for Elvis and the mother ship. After two weeks of musing we have come to the conclusion that this reality is kinda holding on to it’s stability by it’s fingernails.
Might want to call the Livermore Labs guys and ask them if they are still dinking around with those ultra strong magnets that can bend space-time .
But seriously, this is the kind of dimensional shift that could also factor in to the disappearance of data in 2013. What happens if people all of a sudden don’t ascend but start warping off to different places spontaneously?
When spatial shifts like the one you had become common place (they will, just wait for it) that’s when Clif’s “droolers who can’t cope” with the nature of reality changing will become apparent.
Should be way fun. Put Elaine and me down for Bora Bora, by the way.

The Ugly – Extensible – Depression
Contrary to what you might think, we’re not really in the guts of the Second Depression yet. We are still in the “fixing to get ready” part, where people have not locked up their wallets and where new cars are still occasionally sold and politicians can still get away with says “Good times are just ahead…” and have enough fools around to believe ‘em and vote ‘em back in again. That changes later this year if we apply a little “extensible thinking” to navigating the Second Depression. Times are about to get much tougher…and some of the developments I’m forecasting based on solid data series may astound you.

“Live on $10,000″ A Year
Having a hard time making ends meet? (Like who isn’t, right?) A good starting point to better match up income with outgo is our $10 e-book “How to Live on $10,000 a Year…or less!”
It’s an automatic download. It’s written in an information dense style: The whole thing runs about 65 pages, but it gives you a vision of how to not only live on the cheap, but also how to migrate up the economic foodchain if you have a little hustle left. A bonus section called “How to Build Anything” should instill confidence if you’ve never taken on a home improvement/home creation project before, too….. Click here for the index and details.
