The End of the Internet in 2012

13 06 2008

According to many internet providers, the internet will seize to exist by 2012. The future internet will be a pay-per-website type of system which a consumer will purchase website packages that allow access to particular websites on the “internet”. For any website that it outside of ones website package circle, consumers will have to pay for that website separately.

Update: Bell Canada and TELUS (formerly owned by Verizon) employees officially confirm that by 2012 ISP’s all over the globe will reduce Internet access to a TV-like subscription model, only offering access to a small standard amount of commercial sites and require extra fees for every other site you visit. These ‘other’ sites would then lose all their exposure and eventually shut down, resulting in what could be seen as the end of the Internet.

Dylan Pattyn *, who is currently writing an article for Time Magazine on the issue, has official confirmation from sources within Bell Canada and is interviewing a marketing representative from TELUS who confirms the story and states that TELUS has already started blocking all websites that aren’t in the subscription package for mobile Internet access. They could not confirm whether it would happen in 2012 because both stated it may actually happen sooner (as early as 2010). Interviews with these sources, more confirmation from other sources and more in-depth information on the issue is set to be published in Time Magazine soon.
What can we do?

The reason why we’re releasing this information is because we believe we can stop it. More awareness means more mainstream media shedding light on it, more political interest and more pressure on the ISP’s to keep the Internet an open free space. We started this social network as a platform for Internet activism where we can join forces, share ideas and organize any form of protest that may have an impact. If we want to make a difference in this, we have to join together and stand united as one powerful voice against it.

Earth’s due for Magnetic Pole Reversal

5 06 2008

Digg!

According to Cosmos online, dutch scientists believe that a magnetic pole reversal is imminent for Earth and we shouldn’t take this situation lightly. The magnetic field is gradually reducing which will leave the earth venerable to the solar winds. This is troubling due to NASA’s recent discovery that solar winds and solar storms will peak in 2012 (see previous post NCAR Predicts solar peak in 2012)

SYDNEY: A reversal of the Earth’s magnetic poles could happen sooner than we think, according to Dutch scientists who report that the planet’s magnetic field is becoming gradually less stable.

A reversal could affect everything from navigation and communications equipment to the composition of the atmosphere, say experts.

The report, published today in the U.K. journal Nature Geoscience, found that reversals have been far more common in the last 200 million years than they were deep in the planet’s history.

Wandering poles

Researchers, led by Andrew Biggin of the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands, made the discovery by analysing rocks formed between 2.45 to 2.82 billion years ago.

The story of the Earth’s magnetic field is written in rocks over time. Because these rocks become ‘magnetised’ at the time of their formation, scientists can discover which direction the poles were facing and how strong the Earth’s magnetic field was at that time.

The magnetic poles wander around the vicinity of the geographic poles all the time – the north magnetic pole currently resides in the Canadian Arctic. However, at relatively regular intervals throughout the 4.5 billion year history of the planet, the magnetic poles have flipped completely. A few thousand years before a reversal, the magnetic field gradually gets weaker; something which could cause problems for inhabitants of the planet.

“The Earth’s magnetic field is important for shielding the atmosphere, and us, from damage caused by the solar wind,” explained Biggin. “It’s also used by us and other species for navigation”. An increase in solar wind would disrupt communications equipment and power grids.

Current records suggest that we are long overdue for our next reversal, he said. “On average, there is a reversal around every 400,000 years, but this varies a lot.” The geological record suggests that the last reversal was around 800,000 years ago.

Furthermore, there is already evidence to show that the field has been weakening over the last few centuries – some archaeological remains suggest that the field was far stronger in the time of the Roman Empire, some 2,000 years ago.

Don’t throw away your compass

Don’t throw away your compass just yet though – major changes may not even happen in our lifetimes. “The reversal process is very unpredictable,” said Biggin. “We could be heading into a reversal in the next few centuries, or we might be waiting another million years”.

Even then, reversal is a slow process, which can take some thousands of years to complete.

But what about the effect on living organisms? Another paper, published in Nature in March suggested that some species that rely on the field for navigation or orientation have taken a knock from pole reversals in the past.

Author David Gubbins, of the University of Leeds in England, said that some single-celled organisms that relied on magnetism to tell up from down likely went extinct during past reversals. Human beings have survived reversals in the past, however, added Gubbins, “so we are likely to come through the next one unscathed.”

13 Crystal Skulls prophesied to Save us from Doomsday

4 06 2008

According to Mayan prophecies, there are 13 crystal skulls scattered across the earth and once collected, their “power” may save us from December 21, 2012 or any other doomsday event. This prophecy is the inspiration to the new Indiana Jones movie ( 2008 ) and in the movie one can see the references to the Mayan civilization.

In the Mayans scripture it is said that they sent 12 priests out with twelve of the thirteen skulls to separate them until humanity was ready for them to come together. They know that the ones that have been found were all north so logically they should be looking south for the remaining five. The Hedge’s Skull (Which is the only one the documentary talked about and I wanted to here of all the others) is the main skull that they kept that’s why they found it there. After all, there has even been one found in Spain…

The Mayans predicted a major catastrophe on Dec 21 2012.But they all so predicted of 13 crystal skulls that will be found and save human kind from distinction.This prediction states that these 13 crystal skulls will be found, and brought together when human kind was ready.These crystal skulls do exist, we have found many so far, in South America, Central America, North America, and Even one in Spain.

These crystal skulls are baffling scientist,there are no tool marks, inconclusive on carbon dating, and a mesmerizing feeling in there presence. Our technology today could not make duplicates, so where did these ancient skulls come from and who made them?I have no idea but my fascination with them and Dec 21 2012, I can’t help but wonder what the two together represent. Will we find the remaining number of crystal skulls before Dec 21 2012 and stop the new age that the Mayans predicted or will we find the finding them bring in the new age. Or will we find them after and bring us out of what ever happens on Dec 21 2012?
There are a lot of unanswered questions that I have,but I do believe these two things are related in some way. And the people that believe in the Mayan prophecies start to figure out what the two have in common.

Here is another article I found interesting…

Ancient tribe of Maya passed on a legend that tells of the 13 crystal sculls able to save the world from a terrible catastrophe.

Once in 1927 a British archeologist Mitchell-Hedges was able to confirm the Mayan legend through his own discovery: when the man was clearing debris from atop a ruined temple at the ancient Mayan city of Lubaantum his daughter found one such skull made out of pure quartz.

Later a few more of these mysterious artifacts came into possession of people in different parts of the world. Places where the human sized ancient crystal skulls have been found are generally various ruins and many are guarded by descendants of indigenous people throughout the world.

The skulls have mystical qualities: they can bring their owners into the state of hypnosis, cause people to hallucinate or have dreams about ancient Indians. Some say they can even make wishes come true.

According to the Crystal Links research a conservator and restorer Frank Dorland studying one of the skulls discovered that it had zygomatic arches acting as light pipes, using principles similar to modern optics, to channel light from the base of the skull to the eye sockets.

The eye sockets in turn were miniature concave lenses that also transferred light from a source below, into the upper cranium. Finally, in the interior of the skull was a ribbon prism and tiny light tunnels, by which objects held beneath the skull could be magnified and brightened. As a result, when placed upon a source of light, the skull acquired glowing eyes and appeared to be on fire.

Yet the origins and the manufacturing of the skulls remain inexplicable. World Mystery Research Center reports that several of ancient skulls have been brought to Hewlett-Packard, located in the San Francisco area. Hewlett- Packard, long known as a manufacturer of printers and computer systems, has one of the most extensive scientific and crystal research laboratories in the world.

The scientist working at HP, who had a chance to work with some of these ancient crystal skulls were hard pressed to explain how a primitive culture could have carved crystal into such precise shapes and especially against the natural axis of the crystal without the use of sophisticated tools!

Thus far, four types of ancient quartz skulls are known including clear quartz, amethyst (purple), rose quartz (pink) and smoky quartz (from grey to black). It may be that these magic gifts of the ancestors would assist humanity in surviving the doomsday of 2012, as was foretold by the enigmatic Maya civilization.
