Electro Magnetic Pulses and the Coronal Mass Ejection, December 21, 2012 Could Have Been the End

The ancient Mayan calendar that ended on December 21,  2012 may have been more accurate than we assumed.

If a huge solar eruption in 2012 had hit the Earth, the effects would have been so devastating that we’d still be recovering several years later, scientists working on several new studies conclude.

A huge coronal mass ejection — a large cloud of hot plasma sent into space — erupted from the sun on July 23, 2012. The CME went through Earth’s orbit, and had it happened only one week earlier, our planet would have been in the way and faced severe technological consequences. Within 6 months, which coincides with December 21, 2012, there would have been a total collapse of society. The world would not have ended, but life would surely have digressed by several centuries until we could have once again recovered our technology.

There would have been three waves of damage associated with the extreme solar storm. First, X-rays and ultraviolet radiation from the solar flare would have produced radio blackouts and GPS navigation errors. The second part would have seen satellites fried by energetic particles like electrons and protons, which arrived only minutes to hours later

Finally, magnetized plasma from the CME would have struck our planet within the next day. Power blackouts could have been devastating, making it difficult to even flush the toilet because most urban areas use electric water pumps.

“I have come away from our recent studies more convinced than ever that Earth and its inhabitants were incredibly fortunate that the 2012 eruption happened when it did,” Daniel Baker at the University of Colorado, who led a study of the storm in Space Weather

Similarly, An electromagnetic bomb or E-bomb is a weapon designed to disable electronics with an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) that can couple with electrical/electronic systems to produce damaging current and voltage surges by electromagnetic induction. The effects are usually not noticeable beyond 10 km of the blast radius unless the device is nuclear or specifically designed to produce an electromagnetic pulse. Small nuclear weapons detonated at high altitudes can produce a strong enough signal to disrupt or damage electronics many miles from the locus of the explosion. During a nuclear EMP, the magnetic flux lines of the Earth alter the dispersion of energy so that it radiates very little to the North, but spreads out East, West, and South of the blast. The signal is divided into several time components, and can result in thousands of volts per meter of electromagnetic energy ranging from extreme negative to extreme positive polarities. This energy can travel long distances on power lines and through the air.

These are the two most likely dangers that could destroy our way of life as we know it on earth. Either event could wipe out all our communications and technological equipment we have, rendering all our technology useless for years.

The last CME event took place in 1859 and destroyed practically all telegraph communications in the United States. At that particular period in times, telegraph was the only means of electronic communication available, and did very little to disrupt the life of the average person. Today, it is entirely different.

There is not one element of our life that isn’t controlled by electronics, from cooking your morning breakfast to our national defense. If we were struck with an Electromagnetic Pulse or a coronal mass ejection, we could be crippled, unable to function and perform the simplest of tasks.

It is just a matter of time before another CME strikes, they happen all the time, if the planet is in the wrong place at the wrong time, it will happen and there is nothing we can do about it.

We can protect ourselves from the CME, it is possible to beef up our power grid so it would not be affected by it, the cost would be abut 30 billion dollars, chicken feed in today’s world.

It can be done, the problem is getting  congress to move and solve the problem. Government never acts until there is a disaster, and then it is to late.

Our national defenses can protect us from an EMP,  but it would take an act of congress to protect us from CMEs.

Just a little common sense could solve this problem.

Australian Aboriginal Spiritual Beliefs

Written by Gary Wonning

Rock art can be like a  map, one drawing leads to the next. 

Most of them don’t know how old they are, there are no records, they can only guess.  

Women can be leaders but men are normally the leaders, it’s through blood. If there is no one in  the bloodline, the next best takes over.

Suicide is a  disgrace, they never saw a burden in life and they could die when they wanted. They chose the spiritual way when depressed, they talk to themselves if no mates are nearby. 

They believe there is no  better learning than life learning, the  knowledge is not important it’s how you feel about it.

There are about twelve hundred tribes,  and there are tribes no one knows about.  Even today, not all of Australia has been explored. Some of the tribes still live underground.

There is a time and place for everything.

If we would be more trusting in spirit, everything would be provided.

The Aborigines would swim in the water with crocodiles, they would only take people who had done something wrong. They still swim with the crocodiles and believe the only time you get sick of a disease is if you did something wrong.

The living and dead are a link between the present culture and its mythic logical origin. Older paintings were said to have been done by spirits from the dream-time.

Mime spirits are Extraterrestrials.

Many are are still proud won’t rummage through garbage or paint graffiti on restroom.

Sacred Site is a place where aborigines find a manifestation of divine power, a sense of contact with creative form

All nature is sacred, but in creation place spirit power manifests more readily .

These are place where great events of creation took place.

Members of a group share common totem, each individual has totem.

A totem is the first animal a mother sees after the first kick of the unborn child.

The Australian Dream Time

The aborigines of Australia

Written by Gary Wonning

More of the Australian Aborigine culture

Dream-time has different meanings, sometimes you are just using memory, or if dreaming into the future it is imagination. Sleep dream-time is just anytime in the  past

They say that all spiritual beings instead of settling on the earth they say they dreamed it up.

When you go on a trip, they say you dream it up first.

All travel costs in energy, time, and money.

When you go to Cairns, time and travel is just a dream, and money doesn’t disappear, it just changes form.

When you spend all your time and money on earth the physical body dies, we all have a bank of physical energy when we are born, when the physical energy is used up, the body dies, just like when a car runs out of gas, it stops.

Spiritual energy doesn’t die, it continues on, it just changes form. 

A lifetime is called a dreaming(destiny) they say aborigines are spiritual scientists. We are all  are spiritual  scientist.

Aborigines have been traced to Iraq, Iran, Malaysia, they are Caucasians, being an aborigine refers to religion,not color of skin. If you follow the way of life you are Aborigine, regardless of color, in Australia, any aborigine can get welfare regardless of color.

You can either be Australian or Aborigine. and you can change each census, and you can be anything you want, German French, etc. 

Being an aborigine has nothing to do with color or physical features, it’s the same as being Christian,  they believe there are only 2 types of people, aborigines, and the rest, If you are European Negro , you are white feller.

There is no scientific evidence they have been here more than 12,000 years, but  legends state they have been in Australia for at least 40,000 years. 

Nature has caused thousands of species to disappear, it has nothing to do with climate change or other human activity.

Fire is part of nature and shouldn’t be put out, it is natures way of clearing dead brush and trees.

The Rainbow Serpent created the world and is  like a God.

They can sense spiritual sites , which ones are most important, and can predict when the water will dry up.

They cannot cross another tribes land with out permission, it’s not that way any more, like everything else, times are changing. 

Rock Art is  not important anymore

The deceased were buried in trees wrapped up bones and put in tree , some were put in graves, some were cremated,  or embalmed,

Some tribes cut off the heads.

Many have seen the Rainbow Serpent, it is described as similar to meeting God, or an Angel. Many compare it to meeting the Loch Ness Monster, only certain people see it.

It’s  more feeling than visual. Like a God, if you believe it’s there, it’s there, like the wind blowing.

We believe God is our creator, they believe the Rainbow Serpent is their  creator

The Rainbow Serpent created everything and watches over us, only tribal Elders meet him, he  came from the Sun.

The Aboriginal Dream Time and Spiritual Beliefs

Written by Gary Wonning

The Australian Aborigine has a long and interesting history. Their elders say the aborigines have been inhabiting Australia for over forty thousand years. During that time, they have developed a culture and a system of beliefs we could learn from today.

I have posted a few of their core values.

To the Aborigine, life was all about survival, we are taught a work ethic in order to improve our lot and to make a better life. The Aborigine knew no such thing, because of their extreme environment, their only focus was survival, they don’t understand and laugh at us for working so hard.

People say to them that it must be great to live off the land, their reply is “If people think it is so great, let them try it!”

Only the healthy babies were kept, they were suckled for seven years and if the mother couldn’t keep up with work and the child, the baby was killed.

Most tribes contained 20- 30 people , with 4-5 in each family, some lived to be 100 and some had more than one wife, if the man died or left, another male stepped in and took care of her.

It took about six acres of land to support one person, they survived by eating whatever was available, including termites, ants and grub worms. I actually ate a cooked grub worm, it wasn’t too bad!

There are many shapes and sizes of boomerangs which they used to hunt and kill food, everything from birds to kangaroos. The boomerang was designed to come back to it’s original location, that way if the prey was missed, the boomerang would return to the person who threw it, eliminating his need to run after it. I

n today’s world most Aborigines have lost the ability to make and throw boomerangs, many are becoming like us and we are becoming like them, in time we will all be the same.

If the tribe became too large and there wasn’t enough food, the weaker ones were either killed or left to die.

They would rub animal fat on their bodies to shut down sweating in order to conserve water. They still don’t wear many clothes because clothes create body odor in the heat.

In the dry years, women would not ovulate, they had 0 population growth, sometimes the droughts would last 10 years, so there would be no children born in that time. The lack of food and environmental stress ruined the sex drive.

When woman first felt kick of child, the first animal they saw was believed to be it’s totem or spirit animal, because that is the closest source of energy, it could be a snake, kangaroo or anything.

They believe that newspapers print only bad things, I guess I agree with that.

The earth was flat and void, spiritual beings created what they needed

Rock Art only has meaning to the author, it tells the story of some happening, corroboree, and the retelling of old stories, and creation, photograph carries the spirit of the soul, they wouldn’t allow anyone to photograph them, they felt by doing so, the spirit was stolen.

Ancient aboriginal rock art

You can’t have a  can’t have creation without creator.

The rock art is a teaching aid, as is the red facial paintings, and costumes, 

Stories are a memory aid, their stories are laws on which aboriginal life is based, music is also a memory aid.

More to follow.

Masonry’s Role in the 21st Century

photo of shriner walking up masonic stairs

The Masonic Influence on World History

Written by Gary Wonning

Sometimes we forget how lucky we are to live in the country we do, and how important Masonry and the Shriners has been in creating the world we live in.

We often attend lodge and partake in the degrees, leave lodge and forget how they can help us in our daily lives.

We just need a reminder, in my former life, I drove for UPS for 27 years without a chargeable accident.

I would like to think that accomplishment had something to do with my outstanding driving abilities.

That may have had something to do with it, but UPS also played a major role also.

Every morning before leaving on our on time delivery missions, we attended a three minute safe driving meeting where safe driving procedures were taught, because of those constant reminders, we sometimes achieved five,ten, or fifteen thousand consecutive safe driving days.

It would be hard to determine how many lives those simple meetings saved.

Regardless of who we are, we all need constant reminders to keep our mission fresh in our lives, so it is with masonry and the Shriners, it is so easy to forget how we came to live in this great country, and how easy it would be for it all to slip away.

Looking back, I remember one evening, I was standing in my front yard as a child, I was probably only about six years old.

At the time I lived in southern Indiana and looking towards the east, I saw Washington D.C. going up in flames. I hardly knew what Washington D.C. was, I had heard it was our nation’s capitol, but being as young as I was I didn’t realize what the city stood for.

I just knew our government was in trouble and it seemed as if it was just a few years after the turn of the 21st century. It seemed to be really troubling times.

This was about 1950, so it seemed really far off, and I pretty much forgot about it.

Several years later, in the late 80s, I had to opportunity to speak with a very knowledgeable and intuitive lady. Someone who should have been famous, but wasn’t.

She solved her first murder when she was 9, and Duke University did studies on her brain to try and discover where she gained her intuitive abilities.

She gave me the same information about the coming turmoil, repeating what I had heard in my youth.

I listened to what she had said, but it never really registered, how bad it could get, we had just survived the protests of the sixties, how much worse could it be?

She said there would be much rioting and discontent, it would be mostly confined to the major cities and if we stayed out of them we would be fine.

Sell Art Online

She said the problems would come from the way the majority of our children had been raised after the sixties, the permissiveness and lack of control many parents had over their kids, and the  way American society had forgotten what had made us great.

Soon after that, I went to  a motivational seminar, where Zig Ziglar and others were speaking, he said the same things, I still didn’t heed the warnings.

I took it with a grain of salt and went about my way as many others had done who had heard the same warnings, after all, our parents and grandparents had been saying the same thing for years, the world was going to hell in a handbasket.

And we all swore that we would never sound like our parents.

Most of us were raised in a different world, and we raised our kids in that world, but somehow things changed and people forgot, or didn’t think it was important to remember any more.

When the changes came they were so subtle, hardly anyone noticed.

This is how most cultures decline and finally disappear, being taken over by a more barbaric society, until they no longer exist.

Soon it was the turn of the century, and the things I had seen and was told about began coming true.

It seemed chaos was everywhere, no self control or discipline, no respect for the law, or others, profanity, everything that was right was wrong , and everything that was wrong was right.

Bad behavior became condoned and accepted, anyone who disagreed and remembered the values taught them at a younger age, were condemned and ridiculed.

The world had been turned upside down, and all the problems of the world somehow seemed to be the fault of the United States.

You hear constantly on the media and from some politicians how horrible a place the United States is, how cruel we are to minorities, the disabled, etc.

That isn’t reality,

I found during my travels, this is not the way the average person across the globe feels, that is only media and political rhetoric, designed to sell ads and garner votes by pandering to humanity’s basic trait, fear.

Many today have forgotten how to think, or reason, and logic, forget it.

Today, I would like to discuss logic and how it leads from one phase of our life to another, often without even our knowledge and how applying logic to our lives we can restore faith in America.

Logic teaches us to guide our reasoning discretionary in the general knowledge of things, and directs our inquiries after truth. A regular train of argument whence we infer, deduce, and conclude according to certain premises laid down and we are given the facilities to conceive and reason where we are able to move from one graduation to another until the point in question is finally known or determined.

Sometimes life, guided by an unseen friend, unknowingly follows logic beyond our comprehension and we wind up somewhere and learn something other than what our original intentions may have been.

Such was the case several years ago when I had the opportunity to spend some time in the outback of Australia. Originally, the purpose of the expedition was to photograph various areas of the country with the goal to publish a photo book on the life of the Australian people, including the aborigines.

This particular morning, we were on our way to Ayres Rock, or Uluru as the aborigines call it. A giant monolith in the middle of Australia, the largest sacred site in the world. It’s about five miles in circumference and about 1300 feet tall.

The bus picked us up at about 6 AM and as it made the final stop at another hotel to pick up the last two people, a cute young lady and her brother boarded the bus.

By the time the young lady boarded, the only remaining seat was next to me, being quite shy, she reluctantly sat next to me.

More interested in getting some sleep than starting up a conversation, it was nap time.

A few hours later I woke from my nap and discovered the young girl had fallen asleep on my shoulder.

Being the perfect gentleman that I am, and quietly deciding what my next  move would be , I never moved so as to not disturb her.

Here I am, on a bus , 10,000 miles from  home,in the middle of nowhere, with a bunch of people I’m never going to see again, and I have a cute young girl sleeping on my shoulder, thank you God.

Soon she woke up, and realizing where she was, she was quite embarrassed.

Wanting to strike up a conversation, I asked where she was From. “Switzerland”  was the reply. She said she was traveling around the world with her brother and her final stop would be in the United States to visit her fiance who was a cadet at the Air Force Academy in Colorado.

So much for my well thought out evil plans.

She then asked about me and I informed her I was from the United States.

She then asked rather rudely, I thought,”What are you doing over here in Australia?”

Picking up my shattered ego, and searching for an answer, I replied that I was with a group of 150 photographers that were photographing various parts of the continent and were planning on publishing a book.

I asked her why she asked why I was in Australia.

Her reply,”If I lived in the United States I would never go anywhere else, you have everything there anyone could ever want or need.”

“WOW” I had never thought that before.

A 19 year old kid from Switzerland just told me something I had never really totally  realized before.

I never forgot that.

A couple of weeks later, nearing the end of our journey, we entered the tiny town of Daly Waters in the Northern Territory, a couple of hundred miles south of Darwin.

After spending nearly a month in the outback, removed from the rest of the world, most of us had forgotten what day it was , it really didn’t matter as long as the driver got us where we needed to be when we needed to be there. By that time most of us didn’t want the adventure to end and remembering the day just made the time seem shorter.

As we entered the tiny village with a population of seventeen, I noticed an old C-47 with U.S. markings sitting on an abandoned runway. At the time I never thought much of it.

We entered the pub, looking for something to quench our thirst.

To our surprise, the pub was nearly full, this was unusual , even by Aussie standards. It was the middle of the afternoon in the middle of the week.

I wasn’t sure what day it was, but I knew it wasn’t the weekend, we were scheduled to be in Darwin on Saturday, this wasn’t Darwin, so it had to be the middle of the week.

Getting a drink, someone asked an older gentleman what they were celebrating.

  He replied they were celebrating the fourth of July.

We were startled, why would they be celebrating this America holiday?

His answer was that Australia was really appreciative about how the Yanks had bailed the Aussies out during WW2 when the Japanese attacked them.

Totally unprepared, Australia would have fallen had it not been for help from the United States.

It was gratifying to see people appreciate what America had done in the past.

It was sure a far cry from the rhetoric from the media.

I could go on and on, there have been numerous times the same theme has been conveyed to myself, and I’m sure to others as well.

Most people, even today realize, in spite of our faults, what a force for good the United States has been in world affairs.

Our local Shriner’s center has a weekly luncheon for the nobles who are able to attend.

A few years ago, a visiting noble from Massachusetts introduced himself and related how he was ninety-three years old, a world war two and Korean war veteran and how he was concerned about the direction the country was headed.

As he walked back to his seat, he stopped, put his hand on my shoulder and with a tear in his eye, said,”I just don’t want to leave this world in the shape it’s in.”

Here is a retired veteran, who has already given more to his country than most of us would even think about doing, wanting to do more.

That’s something you can hang your hat on.

In this country, We don’t fight for a president, a congress or a government, we fight for an idea, an idea born several thousand years ago and carried down through the ages by men seeking light. An idea that finally reached fruition by a group of about two hundred men a couple hundred years ago in a hot humid room in Philadelphia .

The idea of freedom and liberty, the idea that men and women should be able to choose how to live and run their lives with the least amount of government interference possible.

That is what our men and women in the military and law enforcement fight for every day of their lives.

We Americans sometimes forget how lucky we are to live in the country we do, and enjoy the freedoms most others in the world can only dream about.

The same can be said for masonry, and its appendant bodies, masonry or a version of it has been around since the dawn of time. The secrets of masons in masonry will tell you everything you need to know, to not only lead a good life, but improve the lives of others and our country.

Aside from the 13 masonic signers of the Declaration of Independence

Our country had an impressive beginning during the inauguration of George Washington as our first president.

Those who accompanied Washington during the inauguration ceremony, Roger Sherman, Alexander Hamilton, Baron Von Steuben, General Henry Knox, and John Adams, all were masons, except for Adams.

Reportedly, there were many more present, the governors of all 13 states, and many in Washington’s administration.

Many didn’t keep good records in those days, but many more were probably masons and some thought to be masons, even though there were no records to prove it , many conclude Jefferson was a mason , judging by his writings and conversations he had with others.

What do we need to do to restore faith in America?

America has lost it’s spiritual foundation, many are seeking, but they don’t know what they are seeking, the young want answers, when things go bad, as they always do, they aren’t satisfied with the answer, that it’s just :God’s Will.”

The church’s only teach about the God without, many today are looking for the God Within.

I believe that masonry teaches that.

The planet is rebooting as we did in the 60s, some things are disappearing and many others are appearing.

Many of the old ways, thankfully, are falling by the wayside, making way for a new and better version.

All we need to do is to not throw the baby out with the bath water, discard what doesn’t work and keep what works.

How do we know what to keep?

How do we change to keep up with the times and still keep what is important?

Our rituals, and basic tenets and landmarks are unchangeable.

Remember what made this country great and all the good we as Americans  have done in the world.

As I try to explain in my book, “The Wisdom of Our Ancestors,” I list 39 different principles we were taught growing up that are no longer taught to many of our young people, I’m sure there are more, but that is all I could think of.

All we need to do is get back to the basics and apply the time worn principles of masonry.

The laws of nature and nature’s God,

The Ten Commandments

The golden rule.

Obviously, there were no masons as such, in times of ancient Sumeria and Egypt, but many carried the ideals of masonry, Ancient Egypt even had their version of Hiram, and there is strong evidence that rituals similar to the masonic rituals were performed in some of the pyramids, such as the Giant pyramid of Giza and the pyramid of Unas in Saqqara.

Every religion and culture has some version of these basic values, there must be some truth to them.

How do we, as masons, return our country to its rightful standing in the world and before God?

I don’t think anyone has the complete answer.

We just use logic

We can only influence those who are in our circle of influence, our family and friends by living the values that were taught us by our ancestors, and masonry.

Sooner or later, people get it. I woke up one morning and realized how smart my grandparents were, they never graduated from elementary school and had more common sense than most Harvard graduates.

Masonic tenets and symbols have always played an important part in world history, many of which have been in existence since the beginning of time.

We will never have all the answers, we just take one step forward, and follow our guide, the answers will be given to us at the proper time.

Masonic teachings have carried the world through time immemorial.

We walk by faith, not by sight.

Sedona Vortex Rock Formations

The portals of Sedona

Written by Gary Wonning

The formations in many areas resemble life forms of extinct animals, such as mastodons and various sea creatures. Often one can sense the presence of souls no longer occupying our earth, in both animal and human form. At times they seem to be communicating with spirit, trying to convey an important learning to those who would only listen.

Early Sedona Indians

The portals of Sedona

It was about 650 A.D., when the Sinagua people entered the Verde Valley. Their culture is often remembered for its art such as pottery, basketry and masonry.

They left rock art, pueblos, and cliff dwellings such as Montezuma Castle, and Tuzigoot, especially in the later period of their presence.

Mysteriously, the Sinagua left the Verde Valley about 1400 A.D.

American Indian cliff dwellings

The Yavapai came from the west when the Sinagua were still there around 1300 A.D. They were nomadic hunter-gatherers.
