A new report by the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) circulating in the Kremlin today on this past weeks violent shaking of the Norwegian Sea floor after it was hit by a powerful 6.2 magnitude earthquake at the shallow depth of 8.8 km (5.5 miles) states that this event also caused an “unexpected and rapid” shifting of the magnetic North Pole by nearly 1,000 km (621 miles) these scientists claim can only be attributed to as an yet unidentified planet in our solar system recently confirmed to exist by one of the world’s top astronomers from the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro.
Unknown to most people, and as reported by London’s Independent newspaper, the magnetic north pole is moving faster than at any time in human history, threatening everything from the safety of modern transport systems to the traditional navigation routes of migrating animals.
Scientists say that magnetic north, which for two centuries has been in the icy wilderness of Canada, is currently relocating towards Russia at a rate of about 40 miles a year. The speed of its movement has increased by a third in the past decade, prompting speculation that the field could be about to “flip”, causing compasses to invert and point south rather than north, something that happens between three and seven times every million years.
Already the phenomenon is causing problems in the field of aviation. Tampa International airport in Florida spent a month last year renaming its three runways, which in common with those at most US airports are identified using numbers that correspond to the direction, in degrees, that they face on a compass. “Everything had to be changed; it was a huge project,” Brenda Geoghagan, a spokeswoman for the airport, said.
RAS scientists in this report further warn that this rapid shifting of the North Pole will increase the destabilization of our Earth’s weather systems which has caused historic droughts to occur world-wide, most importantly in the United States, Mexico-Central America and Brazil’s Amazon forest regions.
Confirming the conclusions reached by RAS scientists, London’s Daily Mail newspaper reported this past week that the evidence for “Planet X” – the mysterious hypothesized planet on the edge of our solar system – has taken a new turn thanks to the mathematics of the noted astronomer Rodney Gomes.
Rodney Gomes, an astronomer at the National Observatory of Brazil in Rio de Janeiro, says the irregular orbits of small icy bodies beyond Neptune imply that a planet four times the size of Earth is swirling around our sun in the fringes of the solar system. Planet X – perhaps misnamed now that Pluto has been demoted to a dwarf planet – has been widely hypothesized for decades, but has never been proven.
Gomes measured the orbits of 92 Kuiper belt objects – small bodies and dwarf planets – and said that six objects appeared to be tugged off-course compared to their expected orbits. He told astronomers at the American Astronomical Society on Tuesday that the most likely reason for the irregular orbits was a “planetary-mass solar companion”– a distant body of planet size that is powerful enough to move the Kuiper belt objects.
He further suggested this mysterious planet would be four times bigger than Earth – around the size of Neptune and would be 140 billion miles from the sun, or about 1,500 times further than the Earth.
Though Gomes may have, indeed, found the mysterious Planet X, he was not the first man to suggest that it was hidden behind Neptune, which is 4 times larger than planet Earth and was discovered in the 1840′s.
French mathematician Urbain Le Verrier used Newtonian mechanics to analyze perturbations in the orbit of Uranus and hypothesized that they were caused by the gravitational pull of a yet-undiscovered planet. Le Verrier predicted the position of this new planet and sent his calculations to German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle.
On 23 September 1846, the night following his receipt of the letter, Galle and his student Heinrich d’Arrest discovered Neptune, exactly where Le Verrier had predicted. There remained some slight discrepancies in the gas giants’ orbits. These were taken to indicate the existence of yet another planet orbiting beyond Neptune.
Interesting to note about these “modern” discoveries of Planet X by mainstream scientists coincide exactly with the myths and legends of our Earth’s oldest peoples as gathered this past century by the Russian-born American independent scholar and author Immanuel Velikovsky who noted them all in, perhaps, the most controversial book of the 20th Century titled “Worlds in Collision”.
In his book Velikovsky proposed that around the 15th century BCE, Venus was ejected from Jupiter as a comet or comet-like object, passed near Earth (an actual collision is not mentioned). The object changed Earth’s orbit and axis, causing innumerable catastrophes which were mentioned in early mythologies and religions around the world.
Fifty-two years later, it passed close by again, stopping the Earth’s rotation for a while and causing more catastrophes, then, in the 8th and 7th centuries BCE, Mars (itself displaced by Venus) made close approaches to the Earth; this incident caused a new round of disturbances and disasters. After that, the current “celestial order” was established. The courses of the planets stabilized over the centuries and Venus gradually became a “normal” planet.
Most critical to note about Velikovsky’s discoveries among the ancient myths and legends was the prophecy that what had happened before would happen again, and if they are to be believed would be happening in our lifetime-namely the early 21st Century.
According to these ancient myths, this mysterious Planet X (upon which live the “gods” who made humans) would once again appear from the South…“the lands of the cross”. The “cross” referred to by these ancient peoples is known today as the Crux which is the smallest of the 88 modern constellations, but is one of the most distinctive and can only be seen in the Southern Hemisphere. Its name is Latin for cross, and it is dominated by a cross-shaped asterism that is commonly known as the Southern Cross, and though it is now associated with Christianity it is, by far, the most ancient and revered of all the symbols of mankind.
Interesting to note is that this past week it was announced in Holland that both Australia and South Africa (both located in the Southern Hemisphere) would share in the building of history’s largest telescope known as the Square Kilometer Array which are a series of 3,000 connected radio telescopes that will scan the southern heavens and cost an estimated $2 billion.
To what will be found in the southern heavens regarding the mysterious Planet X, the most astounding advice on what to release to the public was made by New York Times columnist and Nobel laureate Paul Krugman who called for space aliens to invade earth so that the government would spend money to mount a defense thereby stimulating the economy. And as quoted directly from Krugman during his appearance last year on HBO’s Real Time:
“This is hard to get people to do, much better, obviously, to build bridges and roads and healthcare clinics and schools. But my proposed, I actually have a serious proposal which is that we have to get a bunch of scientists to tell us that we’re facing a threatened alien invasion, and in order to be prepared for that alien invasion we have to do things like build high-speed rail. And the, once we’ve recovered, we can say, “Look, there were no aliens.”
To if Krugman will be proved right and “…there were no aliens”, or, should the ancients be proved right and “something wicked this way comes” no one honestly knows…but from all accounts we’re all about to find out soon enough.
