It’s an exciting time to be alive. The Internet making instant communications anywhere on the globe possible.
I’m listening to sounds of various planets from NASA probes. See http://www.eskimo.com/~nanook/et. Every planet has it’s own unique sound and they are awesome and organic and alive sounding. Something about them really touches my soul. I wish I could go out and wander among them and hear them and those around other stars.
I think it will some day be possible. I think the discovery of the Higgs is to gravity, mass, inertia, and time, as the discovery of the electron was to electricity.
I also think a kind of global consciousness is forming and we are awakening to each other and to our creator. And if we can end the killing perhaps the global quarantine will be lifted and we can meet beings from other planets or even realms.
Of all the potential natural disasters that I find frightening, super volcanoes are at the top of my list because they have the potential to wreak havoc on a global scale.
Our Earth’s magnetic field is wandering rapidly and decreasing in strength, there are minor poles forming. These are all things that have happened during magnetic field reversals in the past, and, while they tell us these things take a very long time, the last one, about 12,000 years ago, happened in only about 400 years.
Another thing that happened was a super-volcano eruption which devastated much of Southern Europe. But such eruptions don’t just affect the area of ash and lava deposits, they put so much material in the atmosphere as to cause a global cooling and reduction in plant production that would likely lead to mass starvation if it happened today.
I think there are folks in the know that know a lot more about this than they are telling us for fear of mass panic.
