Fractals anyone? Can you imagine being an Ant in a Micro-World?

Please Note: This is an old blog post that I relocated here from a website of mine that I recently deleted. The original date of this post is September 10th, 2012.

I suppose that I could expound upon this subject in great detail, be overly elaborate and anything but terse, but since we are all little ants stuck in this micro-world of an infinite pattern, I feel that the readers should help fill in the blanks (in due time) within the comment field.

On the other hand, I will briefly provide a little teasing verbiage and a couple cool videos, to get the ball rolling……

There are plenty of size/proportion concepts out there, and just by using our solar system alone, we start to feel small. It never stops there, as if we go up, into a larger scale like our galaxy, things seem to dwarf us even more. Oh, forget about the galaxies, as they are tiny, so let's move into the great wide open and call it the universe. Yikes! Can I go back? Sure, you can! Okay, let's go back to Earth…

Before I start talking about being an Ant living in a Micro-World, I must ask: Have you ever heard of fractals?

Most people relate such things to mathematics, as a fractal is a mathematical set that has a fractal dimension that usually exceeds its topological dimension and may fall between the integers. Fractals are typically “the same from near as from far,” and they may be exactly the same at every scale and/or different scales. The definition of fractal goes beyond such petty affairs and into a detailed pattern that constantly repeats itself.
All of this mumbo jumbo reminds me of when I used to say, while proclaiming a theory of unity, that everything is split among the endless dividends of one. This is one of those subjects that you can analyze downward as much as you can upward, if that makes any sense…

I’m going to pick out a couple random (quick) videos about fractals, albeit you must watch them before commenting on this post. I would like for you, for the ones who haven’t thought much about this subject, to get an elementary idea of what I mean by proportion. First up, will be a rather basic video, called “Understanding Fractals,” and you can find it below:

Fractal Art? Oh, why should I go there? It is awesome, to say the least… This post is mainly about proportion and an ongoing pattern, so I’ll skip through the art aspects (although I’m currently a dormant artist) and provide a fairly nifty video of fractals, below:

Why am I talking about being an Ant in a micro-world?
Hell, your guess is as good as mine, but I thought that the ant would best represent an organized insect, one who often fights and engages in wars like us humanoids, all while being oblivious to the higher scales of life.
Can you imagine being shrunk down to the size of an ant, and viewing this very same planet through that perspective? What we deem as a “micro-world” is just as much a “world” as any other. People who often chant foolish rhetoric while talking about the galaxies and the universe, often forget about their very own piece of the pie, which is right here on Earth. It is all the same, really, just different levels. We may never find the funnels that truly create during this lifetime, but we can only hope to eventually find the divine pattern. From microscopic organisms to the gargantuan Dinosaurs of the past, from tiny planets to large suns, from galaxies to the universe and above, what does all this mean? Is it really important to understand the universal proportion or should we simply ignore it and concentrate on our individual portion?

We are like ants, when you think about it, if you back up a few thousand feet. Does it mean that we are insignificant? Of course not, because we are rather unique. Well, I shouldn’t get all poetic, or else I’ll ruin the train of thought. Anyway…

This post reminds me of a couple movies that demonstrate what proportions really mean. One, was a family movie called “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids.” The other flick that quickly comes to mind, was an old science fiction film called “Fantastic Voyage,” which they later remade into a more modern movie entitled “Innerspace.”

At any less than insane rate, what is your thoughts about fractals, human proportion with the cosmos, and anything else that relates to being an ant stuck in a micro-world?

---Side Note: You may want to further your reading by searching online for Fractal Dimensions, which is a ratio providing a statistical index of complexity comparing how detail in a pattern (fractal pattern) changes with the scale at which it is measured. It has also been characterized as a measure of the space-filling capacity of a pattern that tells how a fractal scales differently than the space it is embedded in; a fractal dimension does not have to be an integer.

In addition to that, especially if you enjoy digital/computer art, you may also want to search online for Fractal Art. You’ll most likely find some pretty wicked images, to say the least…

The Power of Thought, Projections, Imagination...

Please Note: This is an old post that I relocated here from a website of mine that I recently deleted. The original date of this post is July 10th, 2012.

This is a 2-part post.  The first half will be about how “Imagination has a Reason for Existing” and the second part will be about “The Power of Thought & Projections.” 

Even if you’re one of the lame folks that rarely use it, imagination is there and has a mysterious purpose for existing, but there’s a reason, nonetheless.

Many folks, especially the so-called “overly educated” ones, often forget the powers and reasons for imagination.
By the way, we are not talking rocks, nor can any scientific formula unravel the mysteries of life, albeit there will always be people who think they have “figured it all out.” Ha-ha!

Most semi-normal human beings have the ability to ponder, wonder, think deeply and contemplate complex queries along with dreaming up fantasies, fantastical notions, and imaginative, creative ideas, etc.

Notice that I say most (I would like to say ALL) humans “have the ability,” as I excluded the facts and percentages of lame brains, brainwashed folks, and people full of inane thought processes, but I have my reasons for saying such things.

Most of us have heard some of the old quotes that spoke about how imagination is more important than knowledge, and how imagination is your preview of life’s coming attractions, and so on.

Well anyway, I was just searching online, to see what type of creative jargon ranked well under this topic, and I ran across an interesting page entitled “The Powers of Imagination.” Many of the mystics and hopeful romantics out there, will love stuff like this (Ha!). But seriously, here is a quick excerpt from that page, below:

“Within the Astral worlds, often known as “the beyond” or “the afterlife” where people transition after the process erroneously known as “death,” there are vast areas of Energy comprising just about every type of environment; all consensus creations of numerous people from the past, present and future relative to temporal concept of Earth “time.” These creations are the result of vast collective, consensual Energy configurations that are continually being influenced by Mind, and which Energy therefore endures under that consensual Mind influence almost forevermore.”

You can read more, here:

The purpose for this post, is to hopefully rattle the cages of closed minds and to weaken the strongholds of those copy & paste, facts only, Wikipedia quoting fanatics. It is like some people can’t think for their self anymore. Yeah, I like to use facts and figures when researching at times, but I leave room for my intuition and imagination to fill in the blanks or to create new ideas and possibilities, during the process.

Have you ever wondered why Science Fiction often becomes a reality, over time?
Have you ever thought about how the power of creation may stem from thoughts, alone?
Anti-creationists really get angry or quarrelsome when you mention something that goes against their eternal matter that magically formed from a tiny point of singularity that went bang without a banger involved, but in a divine sense, can you imagine the power of thoughts and imagination as a whole?
No wonder creation never stops throughout the cosmos.

On an indirectly related note… Most of us have all heard of the perplexing question: Which came first, the chicken or the egg?
I’ve heard all types of answers for this question, ranging from not only the ‘chicken’ or the ‘egg’ or ‘why in the hell are you asking me?’ for the answers, but unusual answers like the “unchicken before it became a chicken to lay the egg” along with other asinine crap that I’m not going to bother even typing.

This is an age-old question… Aristotle (384–322 BC) was puzzled by the idea that there could be a first bird or egg and concluded that both the bird and egg must have always existed. He said: “If there has been a first man he must have been born without father or mother – which is repugnant to nature. For there could not have been a first egg to give a beginning to birds, or there should have been a first bird which gave a beginning to eggs; for a bird comes from an egg.”

Creationists would say that the Chicken came first, and most evolutionists would probably say that the egg came first via a mutation from some other non-chicken bird that eventually became a chicken. Say whaaa?

Then, there is the ‘neither’ answer.
Here is a quick copy & paste quote (excuse me) from Wikipedia: “In Buddhism, Hinduism, as well as other Dharmic religions, there is the belief of the wheel of time which regards time as cyclical and with repeating ages, as some other cultures such as Mesoamerican (Aztecs, Mayan) and some native American Indians believe. Their idea of time gives a different answer to the question of “who is first.” The concept of eternal return, which is well known in the Western culture through the writings of Nietzsche indicates that there is repetition of time. The assumption is that time is eternally repetitive, and therefore, there is no “first” in eternity; there is no creation. The answer then becomes neither the egg nor the chicken is first. There is no “first” in a cyclical view of time.”

So, let's just combine all of the answers and say that the power of divine imagination created both at the same time, no?

Humans have limited power, but we do have the ability to create from the material that we have. Have you ever wondered how much we create subconsciously and through our conscious thoughts on a regular basis, that we are not even aware about? Like I mentioned before, imagination has a reason for existing, so can you imagine the power of such, on a grand scale?
Anyway, this subject could go on forever, but I just wanted to jot down a few notes to help spark some fresh ideas about what role people think that imagination plays in our ongoing existence within this seemingly never-ending cosmos that is paralleled with the never-never land of thoughts via the 5th dimension. Is God from another dimension?
At any rate, feel free to enlighten me with whatever ideas or insults you possess towards this subject; cheers!

The entire basis for our existence along with our obvious levels of consciousness is powered by collective thoughts, but I’m not getting into a long, drawn-out debate about the theories of creation – nor am I going to expound upon the properties of spiritual significance. However, I will briefly chatter about the power of thought and also what is known as “thought projections.”

It is amazing, at times, what I consider to be normal, ordinary and commonplace, are actually concepts, ideas and beliefs (albeit actualities) of what many folks consider to be outlandish, insane and just downright mad. Oh, but how many times have I said that the mind is a universe in itself?

Even as a kid, thought projections and the much similar concepts of telepathy was like, uh, duh! Later on, while still being a kid, I heard via science fiction stories and movies that aliens used telepathy to communicate, but hell, we are just as much aliens as they are, technically, although the levels of existence varies from vessel to vessel, if ya get my drift.

Anyway, I think that most human beings, even on this current K-3 planet, experience and are semi-aware about the power of thoughts. By the way, K-3 stands for Kindergarten through 3rd grade, as I think the High School on this planet left a long time ago. So when you hear me speak about being a 4th grader stuck on a K-3 planet, feel free to ignore me and concentrate more on the subject at hand; ha!

How many of y’all have really tried to send a message to somebody, animal or human, (doesn’t matter who) and feel that strong sense of the reciprocation of thoughts without words? How many times have you predicted the very words that have yet to be spoken? How many people find more truth in their feelings as opposed to what they actually think?

Telepathy is a direct means of communication, and is on a much higher level of existence than common thought projections are, but it all starts from somewhere, right?
A critic can simply claim that when you are around certain folks long enough, you pick up a pattern of words and thoughts, but that simply doesn’t explain the obvious invisible means of conveying messages with people you rarely even see or know!

It happens to me all the time, and I can’t count how many times a person has said to me, “how did you know that … I was just about to say that … You already knew what I was thinking,” blah, blah. I usually just say “Oh, uh, yeah,” and change the subject as it is nothing weird for me. I don’t know how many times, for yet another example, I can bring food over that I cooked for somebody, and they say something like, “that is so strange, I haven’t thought about that in months but for some reason, yesterday, that kept popping into my mind (whatever type of meal it was), etc.

To make it short, I stumbled across a short web page the other day that was talking about thought projections like it was some new discovery or something. I didn’t comment on it, but I could hardly keep from laughing at the content that was glowing from my computer monitor.

This is so old that, although I can’t technically prove it, since the dawn of existence, the power of thoughts is what runs the entire thing. Just think, no wonder scientists have such a hard time understanding the expanding universe, consciousness, quantum mechanics, dark matter, dark energy, the true nature of gravity, and so on.

I’ve always thought that most of the “force” behind things is invisible to our “human” eye. Hey, go draw me a picture of the invisible line of gravity between two objects, for example? Draw me a picture of that strong sense you get when somebody is STARING at you with a thousand-yard stare, only to turn around and see that very same thing, but, uh, you sensed it first!

…I could list so many examples, sort of like how a dog always knows when a person is scared.
Sort of like there have been cats that could sense when a person is about to die in a nursing home. And on and on we go…

I’m still dumbfounded by the fact that most people, as a whole, don’t realize the power of thoughts and how strong and/or what type of effect thought projections can have on this world.
In fact, I wish people would quit thinking about doom & gloom all the time, as if we keep dreaming this stuff up, it will eventually happen.
Then again, this is a K-3 planet, so what do I care? Ha!

Well, I was going to research about thought projections and paste some data into this post, but I have verbally rambled enough already, so, so much for that!

At any rate, feel free to provide comments that relate to this subject below, as I would be interested in hearing what others think about thought projections and/or the power of thought; cheers!

Does having higher levels of oxygen in the body help prevent Cancer?

Please Note: This is an old blog post that I relocated here from another website of mine that I recently deleted. The original date of this post is July 11th, 2012.

This post was inspired by a Q & A section on another website, from a question entitled: “Is there any real proof that genetics relate to disease?”

While, in my opinion, the answer is clear, many folks think that it is merely a hypothesis or even a big load of steaming dung, that a person with higher levels of oxygen has a better chance of preventing cancer.

See, here’s the thing, it is not the “oxygen treatments” that are available today, that disproves or proves this notion, but the fact that if your body is full of oxygen through and throughout, that cancer really doesn’t have a home. Easier said than done, sure, but have you ever thought that the most complicated mysteries could very well have the simplest solutions? Have you ever wondered why life in the past used to grow bigger and live longer?

Anyway, I’ve noticed over the years, that when a person does get cancer in areas of the body where oxygen should be most abundant, that the spread of the disease and the death rate increases substantially. Look at it this way, how rare is heart cancer??? When a person gets lung cancer, oral/throat cancer, etc. (highly oxygenated areas), the outlook is often grim, and so on.

Now, before the skeptics come in with all the babble about how oxygenation therapy, hyperoxygenation, bio-oxidative therapy, oxidative therapy, ozone therapy, autohemotherapy, hydrogen peroxide therapy, oxidology, oxymedicine, and germanium sesquioxide are utter baloney, like the ones mentioned on this site (link is no longer active), I would like to make a point that I’m talking about before cancer sets in, ya know, as a preventative measure and so forth…

I recently found a website that spoke about what I have thought for a long while about this subject, during the first couple of paragraphs, here:

There very well could be a link between oxygen levels in the body and cancer. One of the main reasons for cancer is when a person has low levels of cellular oxygen. Cells can turn cancerous when low levels of oxygen damage the respiration enzymes to the point to where they cannot produce energy using oxygen.

A quick excerpt from that particular site: “In 1931 Dr. Warburg won his first Nobel Prize for proving cancer is caused by a lack of oxygen respiration in cells. He stated in an article titled The Prime Cause and Prevention of Cancer that “the cause of cancer is no longer a mystery; we know it occurs whenever any cell is denied 60% of its oxygen requirements.”

“Cancer, above all other diseases, has countless secondary causes. But, even for cancer, there is only one prime cause. Summarized in a few words, the prime cause of cancer is the replacement of the respiration of oxygen in normal body cells by a fermentation of sugar. All normal body cells meet their energy needs by respiration of oxygen, whereas cancer cells meet their energy needs in great part by fermentation. All normal body cells are thus obligate aerobes, whereas all cancer cells are partial anaerobes.”

Now, one may ask, how do you elevate your body’s level of oxygen and how will all of my organs and cells be provided with an ample supply of oxygen at all times? One could automatically start going into things like “natural cures” and promote herbal supplements like Ginseng, that supposedly raises oxygen levels and a sense of well-being; one could start harping about exercise, not smoking, and so on, but one could also blame such matters on the pH level of your blood and speak about ways to elevate your pH, eat more veggies and less meat, blah, blah, etc.

I know this was a rather quick blog post without very much elaboration, but it is one of those types of queries and thought-provoking subjects (in my opinion) that I think would be better discussed in the comment field or left up to the reader to research for their self. Hey, only YOU can truly change your ways and only YOU can control your mindset, beliefs, actions and whatnot. In short, just think of all the different ways the body becomes healthier when your blood flows freely while your body is stress free, happy, laughing, exercising, thinking, breathing nicely, etc., and perhaps you may find the best preventative measure for disease within your own self, yet… One can only hope, as this is just a simple drug-free idea, but for anybody to say that oxygen is not an enemy of the cell-killing cancer, must not be thinking very clearly since oxygen is what keeps you ALIVE during your brief stay on this lovely Blue Planet. Cheers!

I’d appreciate any feedback that anybody is willing to offer, in the comment field below...

[Side note: This post originally had numerous comments, but that was when I first posted it to a community writing site. I lost the comment field to that site during the transfer. However, when I moved it to my main website in the past, it only had one additional comment, which I will provide below. Hopefully, it will garner more responses in due time since I re-posted it here, to the blogger platform, etc.]

Comment #1:

I might as well throw in my 2 cents worth… We look at cancer as cell deterioration, new cells that lack a controlled growth pattern. If the cancer breaks out in a place where we have an old injury or a weakened portion in the body it only indicates that the cancer is in the bloodstream. It only accumulates, like a boil or an ulcer, in a weakened area and drains the poisons in a weakened area. The medical profession cuts it out and says, “Well the cancer’s all gone.” The cancer breaks out in another place. The bloodstream must be cleaned. The causes may come from a variety of areas, air, non- nutritious food, water, genetics etc. Since 90% of all disease comes from the bowel or even more clearly, from the table (food we eat), you are right, our best prevention starts right there. The battle for health is over pH, again I agree with you. The only way to truly reverse diseases is to re-establish health internally at the cellular and system level. No offense meant but doctors are sick care specialists, not health care specialists. You have sick care insurance, not health care insurance, so it leads to a disease epidemic, rather than a health epidemic. The only way of establishing health to a patient is to use organic natural substances coming from clean air, clean food, clean beverages, and clean environment (well 2 out of 4 ain't all bad). You cannot use a kill mode mindset of killing pathogens inside the human body without killing part of the patient too.

Comment #2: Robert: Thanks for actually adding a quality comment, as not only was it related to the subject, it also added to the content; cheers!

Genetically Altered Animals & Cultured Meat

Please Note: This is an old blog post that I transferred here from a website of mine that I recently deleted. The original date of this post is September 7th, 2012. 

…This particular subject dawned upon me today, after re-reading a brief blog post that I wrote in the past (about 1.5 years ago) about the "Chupacabra – Goat Sucker" on a Myths, Legends, & Folklore Blogspot. While perusing over this old material, I was trying to not get hit broadside with folklore while I kicked the legends and pushed the myths far away. …This left me in a critical thinking mode, and I no longer needed some mythical creature as a focal point, as it was plain as day that we have our own genetically altered animals of today that beckons for a closer look. To make this even more troublesome, we got people trying to grow meat products in a laboratory, hence forth the “cultured meat” part of the title for this post.

Before I provide any related links and information about this subject, please get this simple word embedded into your brain, which is MONEY! Yep, the true culprit for these bizarre genetic experiments is about money, no matter what lovely reason of utter humanitarianism they try to feed you.

Anyway, the first article I’m about to link to, speaks about genetically modified animals.

It starts off by saying how it is a slow and tedious process that needs a lot of money to get off the ground. Oh, but ain’t the sole purpose of this to make a lot of money? Remember the old saying, “ya gotta spend money to make money.” Think about it: If you can grow meat in a lab along with animal-based organs for human transplant, wouldn’t that be a mega-money maker? Who cares about our health and/or if it is natural or how much antibiotics and growth hormones these “things” are pumped with or where it comes from, as if we can sell this crap in bulk, we got some rich folks in the making…

At any insane rate, after that article mentioned how this “genetically altered animals” stuff was a slow process, they went on to say: “Behind the scenes, though, a quiet revolution has been taking place. Thanks to a set of new tricks and tools, modifying animals is becoming a lot easier and more precise. That is not only going to transform research, it could also transform the meat and eggs you eat and the milk you drink.”

Toward the end of that page, they sort of spilled the beans by asking this question: So, in 20 years will GM (genetically modified) animals be as widespread as their botanic counterparts are now? “Technologically, nothing is standing in our way,” says Fahrenkrug. “Really, the issue is coming down to: what are you going to make?” You can read more about this, here:

I think most of you will find that last article to be somewhat interesting, but not necessarily in a good way.

Hey, just think of the possibilities! Do you want a cool pet that glows in the dark? You want some cheap prime cuts of beef that was grown in a petri dish via not-so-natural methods? Yada-yada… They also tend to blame some of this type of research for the long journeys that space flights may have in the future, but I know that is one big load of baloney. I mean, NASA doesn’t have to provide their astronauts with a never-ending supply of lab-grown steaks, right? Get real…

I planned on covering more ground about the genetically altered animals, but I see (I sort of write as I go) that the main concern of mine at the moment, when concerning this subject, is this cultured meat stuff. I went to the glorious Wikipedia to get additional info and terms, and they seem to mainly call this junk “in vetro meat” but they mentioned how it is also called “cultured meat,” “laboratory-grown meat” and “shmeat” which is short for sheet meat, so go figure…

Back to NASA, Wikipedia states: “Modern research into ‘in vitro’ meat arose out of experiments conducted by NASA, attempting to find improved forms of long-term food for astronauts in space. The technique was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1995, and NASA has been conducting experiments since 2001, producing ‘in vitro’ meat from turkey cells. The first edible form was produced by the NSR/Touro Applied BioScience Research Consortium in 2000: goldfish cells grown to resemble fish fillets.”

You know, in a way, I could say “good for y’all.” Personally, I don’t want Lab Meat that has to be pumped full of growth hormones and antibiotics, just so they can mass produce it and make tons of money while neglecting our health risks. Yes, they have admitted to that, as well, and you can read about it, here: [link is no longer active, but as the years went by, it now re-directs to this URL with modified information, here: Cultured meat - Wikipedia]

To make a long complaint short, everything that man has done to the food that isn’t natural, has never been good. Artificial this, artificial that, chemical injection here, a word I can’t pronounce in the ingredient list there, etc. Hell, when you think about it, cakes, pies and “junk food” aren’t natural either [I can hear the moans now…], as I have never seen a twinkie or cupcake grow from the ground yet; ha! I’m not trying to come off as a technology hater, but some things need to be left to Mother Nature. It is hard enough now, to find quality meat & produce that hasn’t been totally abused by human input. The last thing we need right now is genetically altered animals and stupid cultured meat that was grown from a petri dish.

Maybe I’m the oddball here, but what do you think?

At times, a Petri Dish is best when it's empty...

Has the Earth’s Axis Shifted? Polar Ice Melting...

Please Note: This is an old blog post that I relocated here from another website of mine that I recently deleted. The original date of this post goes way back to January 18th, 2013.

A lot of folks are out there searching for answers about a possible polar shift at hand that will bring many cataclysmic events, along with various ways to detect whether or not the Earth’s axis has shifted or not, and how severe and/or negative the effect will be for us humans as the polar ice melts, and so on.

There are many things that can cause the Earth’s axis to shift, but minor tilts or changes that causes the Earth to wobble a tiny bit differently is not a problem, as negligible changes happen all throughout the year, every year, without much concern. I will say this, though, as I’m a little concerned about the effects that the melting of our planet’s polar ice caps may have, as simple math will dictate a massive change in the way the weight is distributed on this planet, could very well cause a shift in the Earth’s axis, which can definitely affect weather and much more, depending on the severity of the shift and whatnot.

I’ll give you a few examples of what I’d consider negligible amounts of change for the Earth’s Axis, below:

A couple years ago, the 9.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Japan shortened Earth’s day by just over one-millionth of a second (1.8 microseconds to be exact), according to NASA. It also shifted the Earth’s axis by about 6.5 inches. The reason why I consider that to be a small amount, is because a microsecond equals one millionth of a second. You can read about several examples online, such as the one that happened 3 years ago, which was the massive earthquake that struck Chile. The magnitude 9.1 earthquake in 2004 that generated a killer tsunami in the Indian Ocean, supposedly shortened the length of days by 6.8 microseconds. One could easily say that all of these events add up, but it also works the other way around, as certain shifts of mass can also lengthen days, in a microscopic sort of way, as well. I’m not going to list all of the events, such as earthquakes that have had a minuscule effect on Earth’s axis, as this planet has been shaking and quaking for quite a long while, to say the least!

Without any overly complicated data or extra technology involved, as many of you know, the Earth’s axis tilt, which is roughly 23.4 degrees +/-, is the reason for the seasons on Earth. …So any type of major shift or a bunch of minor ones that accumulate over time, will definitely have a major impact on this planet’s weather and seismic activity, no matter what some people may try to tell ya! I don’t know about you, but there seems to be less transitional periods between Summer time and Winter time, than it used to be. Basically, what I’m saying is, there seemed to be longer Spring & Fall times, in the past – at least where I live. Then again, the weather changes like our moods and last year’s winter was rather mild in my area, but it was a little colder this year, so go figure…

Now, what about all of this polar ice that continues to melt? It seems that this major event has been getting swept under the rug for the last couple of decades. I’ve even read in the past, how a lot of polar imagery has been censored by the government, but I don’t know how true that claim is. However, after reading my post about Antarctica (Lake Vostok – Mystery at the Center of Antarctica) [Link is temporarily inactive since I haven't re-posted it yet], for example, there may be exposure to some of those cool alien underground facilities or hidden bunkers down there, but who knows… right? But in all seriousness, “sea ice is always melting near one pole while growing around the other, but the overall trend year to year (at least the last several years) is dramatically less ice in the Arctic and slightly more in the Antarctic.” You can read more about that on an article entitled “Antarctic Sea Ice Growth Pales in Comparison To Arctic Losses,” which you can find, here: [link is no longer active]

I once wrote a web page that was a parody about the polar shift, and it involved a humorous weight displacement theory along with a proportional imbalance from the northern hemisphere to the southern hemisphere, that could cause a polar shift. Well, when you factor in all the weight that we are losing up top via the melting of ice, this theory may hold true after all. Within that post, though, I was comparing overweight Americans getting balanced out by large mammals from Africa, etc., as a joke; ha!

At any rate, changes to the Earth’s rotation are not only caused by massive earthquakes, as supposedly larger effects are seen with oceanic currents and atmospheric winds, but lets not leave out my concern (among many others) about the changes brought about by the melting of polar ice along with the mass redistributions in the mantle. Also, in addition to this, we should all know that a major impact from a comet or a large asteroid would also affect the tilt of Earth’s axis, but why add to the doom & gloom chatter, eh?
Of course, the gravitational pull of other celestial bodies could also impact our axis and cause an ongoing shift that disrupts our weather, rotation, etc. 

If any Planet X/Nibiru Guru wannabes land on this post, please try to not wet yourself in the comment field while typing about all the swill & slop you have read on conspiracy theorist-type websites and/or how Planet X is the cause for every problem on Earth and/or how hordes of Barbarians from Planet Ogo are coming soon to take over the Hollow Earth and the new leader will rise from the south pole and cast wrath upon thee; blah, blah…  LOL! 

Anyway, I would type more, but since this is one of those subjects that is better left for the comment field, I’ll leave it at that. I must remind you, though, regardless of this crazed, shifted notion by way of the precarious Earth’s axis, if the melting of the ice caps truly gets out of hand, we might find a lot of flooding issues and water contamination going on, so use some common sense and think of ways to filtrate, purify and store clean drinking water, if ya get my drift … or was that shift? Ha!

Now, if you’d like to read a more complicated version of this subject, I’ll provide a couple additional links below:

Black Holes & Spiral Galaxies

This is an old blog post that I transferred here from another website of mine that I recently deleted. The original date of this post is January 9th, 2012.

Well, I’ve just been running into debatable subjects all week it seems, like I mentioned on my last post about Altruism & Conscience.  I never thought there was much to debate about on whether or not black holes exist, but that the questions would be more about understanding them and how they work.  One of the biggest questions non-scientific people often ask doesn’t really have to do with the concepts behind it, by what scientists theorize.  That question would be:  What is on the other side of a black hole?  Of course, a creative science fiction answer would be:  Another dimension or perhaps another universe.  Sounds great, but is that true? [Nah, probably not. Sure, there could definitely be other dimensions and universes, but a "black hole" is a doubtful portal to such.]

Well, it seems more like black holes create or shall I say “form” spiral galaxies for this 3-dimensional universe, and that black holes are formed from large dying stars.  It sounds more like a recycle bin, galactic garbage can, and a galaxy creator, if ya ask me.  I noticed many years ago, before I ever heard such talk (before the Internet was available and everybody was a genius or a feign online scientist), while looking through my space books and encyclopedias, that spiral galaxies appeared as if they were spiraling down a toilet, as if a hole or vacuum formed it, etc.  Now, many years later, scientists are openly stating such things.  Damn, all I did was look at the pretty pictures, and came to that conclusion as a kid.  Well, I’m not going to blog about the joys of intuition, as that would be another subject; ha!  

The universe is so vast that the sheer size of the cosmos is beyond our comprehension, as we can only theorize, use deductive reasoning, logic, and rational thoughts to a certain point.  …And after a while, it all becomes land of the woo-woos for us humanoids, but ain’t it fun, though? 

Now, back to this black hole stuff…  Here’s an excerpt from NASA’s website: “Don’t let the name fool you: a black hole is anything but empty space. Rather, it is a great amount of matter packed into a very small area – think of a star ten times more massive than the Sun squeezed into a sphere approximately the diameter of New York City. The result is a gravitational field so strong that nothing, not even light, can escape. In recent years, NASA instruments have painted a new picture of these strange objects that are, to many, the most fascinating objects in space.”

I mentioned earlier that they are formed from large dying stars, going by what I have read and studied in the past.  Personally, I haven’t buzzed around the cosmos lately, since my high-tech flying saucers are all out of order at the moment and in desperate need of repair.  But, as NASA states on their website: “Most black holes form from the remnants of a large star that dies in a supernova explosion. (Smaller stars become dense neutron stars, which are not massive enough to trap light.) If the total mass of the star is large enough (about three times the mass of the Sun), it can be proven theoretically that no force can keep the star from collapsing under the influence of gravity.”  Sounds good to me…  You can read more about this subject, here: 

Anyway, one of the main reasons why I’m doing this post, is because some clown (along with several others) that was on a discussion forum while claiming to be knowledgeable in all subjects related to science, space, astrophysics, etc., said that black holes are fairy tales and voodoo for stupid mathematicians.  WTF?  This is the same guy that also has to “Google” everything for most of his replies, but somehow got lost in his/her own black hole on that particular subject.  Once again, the word “hole” is what screws some people up, as it does sound like they are describing something that rips a hole through the fabric of space and whatnot, but that’s not what they mean – at least at the moment, but then again, scientific understandings of the universe tend to change over time, so who really freakin’ knows?  

Now, back to this multiple dimension stuff… If we are talking about a possible way to travel through the cosmos by way of a shortcut and/or possibly into another universe, dimension, whatever, I would at least use a theory involving wormholes, artificial or natural, but not black holes, unless I just felt like being funny and wanted to get in touch with my inner science fictional fantasies…

I suppose there is no reason for me to delve into the land of wormholes, since there is, at the time I’m writing this, no observational evidence for such, just theory, etc.   If you’re interested, just do what a lot of these self-professed gurus do online and perform Internet searches for it so you can be an expert within minutes and can call yourself a “scientist,” as well.  After you copy & paste some material into the comment sections and/or use ’em for forum replies, you can achieve the credit that took some people years to learn.  Ha-ha!  Okay, enough jokes about that asinine crap…

Spiral Galaxies…  What a beauty they are to look at, thanks to NASA.  Another good thing about their images, is that they are not copyright material and can be posted and shared by anyone.  Speaking of such, I was going to end this post with a few images of these spectacular spiral galaxies.  Oh, by the way, in case you’re really young or not very educated, we live within a spiral galaxy called the Milky Way, just saying…  LOL!

Oh, and one more thing before I drop down the galactic depictions:  If you’re interested in a book that elaborately covers several topics related to black holes, wormholes, and time warps along with many other interesting subjects, all in an easy-to-understand fashion, go here: “Kip S.

Solar Storms & Flares – NASA Video

This is an old blog post that I moved here from another website of mine that I recently deleted. The original, exact date of this post is lost, but it was sometime during the fantastic year of 2012.

Well, many of you have most likely heard a lot of talk about doomsday, end of the world babble, Mayan Prophesies, Dec. 21, 2012 chatter, and a lot of other verbiage concerning global disasters, mega earthquakes, storms, solar flares, a polar shift, and the works.

Now, before we get too excited, one must realize that the weather is about as unpredictable as a woman (Ha-ha!  Just kidding…).  No matter what year it is, natural disaster can strike, and cataclysmic events can occur.  This “end of the world 2012” talk has sort of got hyped up by the media and uneducated drama queens, for example.  On this post, I’m not getting into any of that other stuff, as this particular blog entry is intended to be a quick video post via NASA, about solar storms and flares.

Now, you may ask:  Should I be worried about major solar flares and/or storms from the sun during the next several months?  Well, I would say that it isn’t a bad idea to be prepared for an electrical blackout, if the worst-case scenario takes place.  You know, like stock up on canned goods, ammunition for your guns, alcohol (if you like booze), etc.  Most likely, since we have the technology to detect the flares and solar storms while knowing when they are coming to Earth a couple days before impact, we will have a better chance for taking preventative measures that may help protect our power grids, etc.

But, in fact, scientists are warning that when they hit, if large enough, they could potentially knock out power grids, GPS satellites, airline communications and incite nuclear meltdowns. The solar flare cycle occurs about every 11 years and is expected to reach its peak of activity (on this current cycle) around June 2013 or thereabouts.  The cycle starts with the flares slowly calming down, becoming relatively dormant, then picking back up until it peaks near the end of its 11-year cycle.  This has been going on, as long as we can tell, for a very, very long time.

Here’s an example of the effect they can have:  In 1989, a solar flare damaged a power grid in Quebec, Canada, cutting power for hours to millions of people.  [Blog Insert: Do they make bicycle-based generators?] But, it could have been worse…

The Solar and Heliospheric Observatory spacecraft captured this image of a solar flare as it erupted from the sun early on Tuesday, October 28, 2003. This was the most powerful flare measured with modern methods. Credit: NASA/SOHO:

Okay, well, NASA says that “killer solar flares are a physical impossibility,” but they can obviously cause major problems if they are big enough in today’s world.  I’m sure we have had some really big ones down through the history of mankind, but there wouldn’t have been much of an effect then, since we didn’t have all that technical stuff, electrical devices, communication systems, and so on, back then. One good thing, when it comes to solar storms, is that we have a fairly thick atmosphere that protects us from outside radiation.

Anyway, instead of reading about what I may have to say about this tempestuous/stormy subject, check out the video from NASA, below:
