The shield that protects the Earth from solar radiation is under attack from within. We can’t prevent it, but we ought to prepare.
One day in 1905, the French geophysicist Bernard Brunhes brought back to his lab some rocks he’d unearthed from a freshly cut road near the village of Pont Farin. When he analyzed their magnetic properties, he was astonished at what they showed: Millions of years ago, the Earth’s magnetic poles had been on the opposite sides of the planet. North was south and south was north. The discovery spoke of planetary anarchy. Scientists had no way to explain it.
Today, we know that the poles have changed places hundreds of times, most recently 780,000 years ago. (Sometimes, the poles try to reverse positions but then snap back into place, in what is called an excursion. The last time was about 40,000 years ago.) We also know that when they flip next time, the consequences for the electrical and electronic infrastructure that runs modern civilization will be dire. The question is when that will happen.
The Magnetic Field Is Shifting. The Poles May Flip. This Could Get Bad.
A Welsh village has just been officially recognised as a plastic-free community, swapping plastic for biodegradable coffee cups, glass bottles and bamboo toothbrushes.
Local shops in Aberporth are opting for loose leaf tea, rice in a paper box, bread in a wax wrapper and wooden clothes pegs.

Science claims that we have 5 senses and we experience the whole of the world we live in through these 5 senses. However in our brain we have an organ called the pineal gland. It is shaped liked a pine cone and is located between the eyes, hence it is commonly called the “Third Eye”. Until recently modern science did not know the function of the pineal gland, but it now says it has a role in the regulation of melatonin which controls our sleep patterns. Ancient Cultures have known about this gland for a long time and depicted it in their artwork as a pine cone. The Egyptians represented it as the Eye of Horus. The reason the ancients placed such importance on it was because they said it opened up our senses and connected us to the “Spirit World”. With some people these senses are still active but with most people, particularly those from western cultures, they are dormant. However we all have this ability, but due to the hectic pace of modern society we have no time to explore these realms. Also the pollution of our bodies and our environment due to chemtrails, fluoride, pesticides and microwaves interfere with its function.
Original Australians say that we are born with seven senses and that the other two are used for connecting to the “other side”.
There is more to this world than meets the eye

Humanity’s origin story has gotten increasingly tangled in recent years: New discoveries suggest that Homo sapiens interacted and interbred with other species and ventured out of Africa in more than one wave. Researchers have compared the ancient world to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth — but instead of hobbits, dwarves and elves, our planet had modern humans in Africa, Neanderthals in Europe, Homo erectus in Asia.
Now, a treasure trove of ancient stone tools suggests that humans’ circuitous path to modernity also wound through India.
In a paper published Wednesday in the journal Nature, researchers described thousands of stone implements uncovered at Attirampakkam, an archaeological site in southern India. The tools span about a million years of history, they say, and illustrate the evolution of big, blunt hand axes into finely sculpted stone points. Starting about 385,000 years ago — long before modern humans are thought to have arrived in India — it appears that an advanced toolmaking culture was developing there.
Very old, very sophisticated tools found in India. The question is: Who made them?
A few years back, while walking along the banks of a small river in North Pembrokeshire, I was drawn to a rounded stone just at the water’s edge, it shone out at me. I picked it up and looked closely at it. On both sides, very worn, were carved circles, perhaps spirals. Were they carved by man or nature? (In either case it is very likely to have been regarded as sacred by our ancestors (and no doubt still is).

“Star Wars” has always kept its fingers close to America’s spiritual pulse.
In the ’70s and ’80s, the interstellar saga explored Eastern traditions, mainly Buddhism and Taoism, just as many “spiritual, but not religious” dabblers were doing the same.
At the turn of the millennium, “Star Wars” caught the McMindfulness craze. “The Phantom Menace” opens with two Jedi talking about the benefits of meditation. Riveting, it was not.
But the latest film in the saga, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi,” touches on trends in American religious life in some surprising ways, especially for a franchise that’s so nakedly commercial. (“The Last Jedi” was the highest-grossing movie in the United States last year and raked in nearly $1.3 billion worldwide.)
“It is very much a movie of this time,” said the Rev. angel Kyodo williams, a Buddhist teacher, social justice activist and “Star Wars” aficionado who lives Berkeley, California. “It draws on ancient teachings, as well as what is happening in this country right now.”
The spiritual message hidden in ‘Star Wars’
Let’s consider a series of items, and then look at where they may take us.
Item: During a near-death experience, a man found himself being tormented by demons. Terrified, he reached back into his childhood to the only faith he had ever been taught and prayed to Jesus for salvation. Instantly he found himself lifted out of the experience into a higher plane.
Item: A deeply religious Christian, undergoing a near-death experience, found himself in a stereotypical Christian heaven, complete with “pearlescent gates,” streets of gold, and choirs of angels. He came back convinced that he had been to heaven, though he remained skeptical of other NDEs that encompassed different, nonbiblical experiences.
Item: A survey of Hindus in India who underwent NDEs found that many of them reported being taken to the afterlife by angelic messengers known as yamdoots, whose role is to escort the deceased to the next life. In many Hindu NDEs, the experiencer’s death was attributable to a bureaucratic error, which was promptly corrected by returning them to life.
Lost in the bardo
Consciousness permeates reality. Rather than being just a unique feature of human subjective experience, it’s the foundation of the universe, present in every particle and all physical matter.
This sounds like easily-dismissible bunkum, but as traditional attempts to explain consciousness continue to fail, the “panpsychist” view is increasingly being taken seriously by credible philosophers, neuroscientists, and physicists, including figures such as neuroscientist Christof Koch and physicist Roger Penrose.
“Why should we think common sense is a good guide to what the universe is like?” says Philip Goff, a philosophy professor at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary. “Einstein tells us weird things about the nature of time that counters common sense; quantum mechanics runs counter to common sense. Our intuitive reaction isn’t necessarily a good guide to the nature of reality.”
The idea that everything from spoons to stones are conscious is gaining academic credibility
Replace ‘intuitive’ with ‘instinctive’ in this sentence: “Our intuitive reaction isn’t necessarily a good guide to the nature of reality.”- Ellis
A Turkish air strike on the Iron Age temple of Ain Dara, in north-west Syria, has caused severe damage to its carved basalt lions and winged sphinxes. On around 22 January the Hittite temple, nearly 3,000 years old, was deliberately targeted in a military campaign against Kurdish separatists.
Jonathan Tubb, the British Museum’s Keeper of the Middle East and until recently a frequent visitor to Ain Dara, is “devastated” by the damage. He says “the loss is as great as that suffered at Palmyra, a site of comparable importance”. Some of the major monuments in Palmyra were blown up by Islamic State extremists in 2015.
‘A loss as great as Palmyra’: Syrian temple of Ain Dara severely damaged by Turkish forces
One cornerstone of many a conspiracy theory is that of mysterious secret bases. Governments around the world do have extremely secretive, off-limits bases scattered throughout all corners of the globe, which draw to them such stories of strange experiments, secret research, UFOs, and all manner of high strangeness. Many of these have become legendary for the thick cloud of intrigue and bizarre tales orbiting them, such as the infamous and much-discussed Area 51 in Nevada.
