(East Ellijay, GA) The prediction from Patrick Geryl (yesterday’s column) is coming up pretty quickly. And, how timely all this is, since there are several events that may be foreshadowing…not the least of which is the sunspot activity ramping up with a “Presto!” alert out already today:
“NOAA Active Region 1598 produced an M5.0 flare on Oct 22, peaking at 18:51UT and an X1.8 flare on Oct 23, peaking at 03:17UT. There is a time gap for SOHO/LASCO images between Oct 22, 20:36UT and Oct 23, 06:00UT. STEREO A/COR2 images are missing between Oct 22, 15:24UT and Oct 23, 03:54UT, STEREO B/COR2 images are missing from Oct 22, 16:55UT. There is no coronographic evidence for an associated plasma eruption before 20:36UT. The proton fluxes did not increase.”
If you saw the movie 2012, I’m sure you remember the opening sequences where a scientist in India was working with an abandon, flooded mine to detect particles which could set off earth changes? Well, it’s a little disconcerting as we creep into Patrick’s “window” for a 7.5 (or larger?) quake in a few days that we are seeing major solar flaring.
One of our reader, Big Al in (where else?) AL abama, sends this:
I have been keeping up with the predictions of earthquake, sunspot activity, and CME storms and wonder if this may have any effect?
The reason I ask is some strange doings with me.
I have never been a Headache Sufferer like some, mine are mostly sinus and directly traceable to a deviated septum and genetically small sinus passages, coupled with hay fever.
Usually I can control them with some Tylenol or aspirin. I have had two instances on weekends of headaches so painful that they caused me to throw up, and have literally immobilized me. These are not normal for me.
What was interesting was when the headaches were over, I found all my computers ‘except my laptop’ were shut down and not responsive. All of these were plugged into Johnson Controls ADT “brick” UPS/Surge Protectors (Including the laptop).
To get them to come back on required unplugging all from the wall including the UPS, allowing them to sit about 30-minutes, and let them all reboot in turn. This includes the Modem, a cell phone signal booster supplied by the cell company, a wireless router, and router signal extender in another room, the main box, and both monitors. Each had to be plugged into the wall socket and allowed to boot up to get the system working and a signal reestablished.
I thought the instance of head ache and loss of electronics was interesting, and now even more so since this is twice. In both cases the system acted as if it had seen a major surge, and the laptop, since it had two batteries to filter the power, just went to the screen saver.
Was there any sunspot activity or HAARP activity on this weekend past and the weekend of 10/5 that I haven’t heard of?
Have you had anyone in the community that reads your blog reported anything like this happening? I am interested to know what others have reported along these lines. Thanks as always…”
This is a dandy issue suitable for further inquiry, to be sure.
Personally, the few times I have been in the vicinity of a major quake (6.0+) I had physical “symptoms” too: In the period about three days ahead of the quake I get incredibly sleepy. But then, a short time before the quake (24-hours) I became incredibly energetic.
As to Al’s question about HAARP, we don’t really have a good way to go back and reconstruct power levels or beam headings from Gakona. However, what you may find interesting is the operating plan for HAARP for the coming year which is being kicked around by DARPA.
While I’d like to believe the fine dusting of mumbo-jumbo, most of the areas of investigation are of limited application to my way of thinking and in an age of low earth orbiting satellites, well established alternative technologies, such as meteor burst propagation, the present obsession with HF radio is revealed in Air Force documents to really involve global ground tomography… a kind of X-raying deep into the ground using the Tesla-styled atmospheric heater to deliver multi-spectral energy.
Especially interesting – in a 2012 way – is that if I was tasked with tracking magma movement ahead of a crustal shift, ground tomography might be one of the tools to be considered. Not to mention the payoffs in terms of finding caves and underground nuclear operations in the sandbox and Iran, in particular. (Reference document #1 and reference document #2).
Frankly, I find it a bit disingenuous of the Air Force rolls out the song and dance material when even a few minutes research reveals something much more important.
The idea of mapping the upper layers of the earth, finding subterranean installations, magma channels, and who knows…Journey to the Center of the Earth kinds of openings would be much more entertaining. Besides, the public will buy anything – and so will congress k- so why the mumbo-jumbo PR?
Could be other good science done: Like using ultra high gain radio array to pick up radio emissions from nearby planets (in the 19-23 MHz range). And, then there would be other applications like learning more about how the “real” etheric energy works.
“Etheric energy, did George say?”
Oh, yeah…thought you knew. There is a kind of energy which is pushed east to west every day, by the sun’s coming up and it washes across earth. In the serious study of WuJo-like phenomena, this “etheric” stuff is what makes things like weather modification using variants of Wilhelm Reich’s Orgone energy and likely was the subtle-energy-powered the weather canons described by Trevor Constable.
Near as I can figure, that’s why Constable’s cloud-buster/rainmaker experiments in Hawaii in 1995 worked so well: He had somehow, perhaps while spending years on a merchant ship with a high-powered shipboard radar, been able to deduce the “flow” of etheric energy was from East to West, which is a way cool thing to know if you’re working with subtle energy.
Keeps the riff-raff out. Also, Constable speculated in one of his books that etheric energy was what was critical to UFO’s (which may be trans-dimensional) which, in turn, would explain how convenient it would be to dump barium and other additives into jet fuel: Maybe it mucks up the “etheric body” of earth?
Still, if HAARP has some yet-unrevealed purpose (magma channel flow monitoring, for example) there would be reason to spend the money. But isn’t truth a nice ideal? Why not let “the peeps” in on the purpose?
From a “hard sciences” standpoint we might want to ask “What is it that sets off people’s sense of pending quakes? Is it a piezo-electric phenomena that has something to do with rocks in the earth creating large amounts of electricity? Or, is it that the “etheric energy” flow changes in advance of a quake?”
In your wanderings in the next day – or two – be on the lookout for “earthquake clouds” and send along any taken between now and Friday. They tend to be elongated versions of (somewhat) common lentinular clouds.
Predicting earthquake is not a question you want to get wrong, at least if you’re a seismologist in Italy: There, a group of seismologists have been sentenced to six years in jail for failing to predict a killer earthquake.
Italy is taking the lead in trying to bring back the good old days of the Dark Ages and return us to what Carl Sagan called a “Demon-Haunted World.” So in addition to verging on financially bankrupt, they may be intellectually bankrupt as well. Sending scientists to jail may not be as quick as a good old-fashioned Inquisition.
But it’s a fine start.
Ellijay Eye Treats
One treat in particular: In downtown Ellijay, there’s a female lawyer who’s got this eye-catching straw moll sitting out front:
Meantime, we’re fascinated with the topology of the North Georgia Mountains. The area around Ellijay is developed in “pockets” in the valleys amongst the hills. This scene, for example, is what one of the main commercial areas of East Ellijay looks like:
If everything goes right today, we’ll be departing tomorrow morning. Only real surprise on the airplane work has been discovering that the aileron attach point bushings needed replacement, which will take the play out of the yoke.
The bushings (right) are supposed to be a snug press-fit. Our old ones just fell out and had what machinsts call “horseshoeing” (out of roundness).
One problem with a 46-year old airplane is finding exactly the right bushings. But, the shop here has them custom-made to factory specs…just another reason why coming here was the right move. Spidey sense at work.
The other clue? There’re a couple of bolts back in the stabilator area called “the Jesus Bolts” (You don’t want them coming off or “Oh Jesus…”). The nuts weren’t put on right…but they will be by time we leave….
There are many places where a person can save money in life. But seems to me that flying or floating are two twhere false economy may become fatally flawed. There’re just times when one just shouldn’t be chintzy.

Remember the Part Where I Said….
I know it is a long time since Wednesday, but if you read my favorite chart (our Aggregate Index) I specifically said: “A sharp reversal here is possible…”? I can’t speak for you, but in my book, a 205 point fall Friday is near enough to a sharp reversal. Which means what? Well, our gaming it all out -and looking for our next 10-year long term investment – begins as we ponder whether to “Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em?” after our morning news ramble and chart calisthenics. Why just spelling a word like that earns a second cup.
