Return of the Sun

Unsplash image of Foggy ValleyAs I write this post, the sky is gray, fog lays across the hills and valleys, rain is drizzling down and it’s cold. Not freezing, mind you, but pretty dang chilly. It’s a perfect day to curl up in bed and watch a movie. But this is the year of creativity, profit and adventure, so I’m up writing and being creative.

Since the Winter solstice has passed, the days are getting longer and the sun is slowly returning with the promise of light and energy to bring Spring into fruition.

Circles, Zero and the Sun

As some of you may know, I am often fixated on information about our sun. I am not fearful of what may occur, but aware of the power it produces and the fact that it is not as stable as we think it is so far from our home planet.

Sun SymbolThis morning, I listed to NPR (National Public Radio) for a bit about a man who searched for the source of the symbol for the number zero. Being a circle, I recalled that an old symbol for the sun is a circle with a solid circle inside.

As a believer that we’ve gained and lost knowledge many times over the millennia, this looks suspiciously like an orbit. Circles often also symbolize a continual loop where a pattern repeats or a path is taken again and again.

Joseph Campbell’s idea of A Hero’s Journey talks about how the Hero’s Journey loops back upon itself, and a new journey begins. Being at the beginning of the New Year, I see this symbol as a sign of this idea. Another progression around the sun begins, and we take that opportunity to reflect and start a new journey for ourselves.

The goal of life is to make your heartbeat match the beat of the universe, to match your nature with Nature.
~ Joseph Campbell

Back to the sun…

It’s a fascinating thing that hangs in the sky (when we can see it). We take it for granted. It gives life to our planet. And it is theorized to have helped in the rise and fall of civilization over the millennia.Two great sources about the sun, besides doing your own research by going to NASA’s website and pouring over tons and tons of data:

  1. Suspicious0bservers.org and the ObservatoryProject.com
    Ben Davidson started a daily video newscast in 2013 reporting on the status of the sun, Earth weather patterns, earthquakes and environmental events. By 6:30 a.m., his video is online. He also adds all links where he gets his information so you can check it out and verify for yourself. By the way, the “O” in Observers is actually a “Zero.” Here’s the YouTube Channel and an example video from January 3rd:

  2. Dr. Robert Schoch, who has his Ph.D. in Geology and Geophysics from Yale, wrote a book titled Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in our Past and Future. In it, he presents his latest research centered on the magnificent Göbekli Tepe complex in Turkey, which confirms his thesis that ancient civilization goes back thousands of years earlier than mainstream historians generally care to acknowledge. Also presented is a new discovery: a reinterpretation of the mysterious rongorongo texts of Easter Island, as the glyphs connect to the work of a prominent plasma physicist. He discusses how solar outbursts and plasma discharges brought about the rapid end of the last ice age and the demise of the early civilizations of that remote period.

What I like about Ben Davidson is that he ends each News Video with “No Fear” when it comes to information about our sun and it’s output. Both men simply state facts that our sun can kick up a tantrum from time to time… and we’re still here. There is no ‘doom and gloom,’ but simply giving us a way to pay attention to a bigger picture that stretches back thousands of centuries.

On this cold gray dreary day, I did take time to chill out and watch a movie. I also wrote and hung out with a friend. As I finish this blog post, and today’s ‘Space Weather,’ although I know that Winter is just settling in, I eagerly await the return of the sun.

What interesting things have you learned about the sun?

Atlantis and The Eye of the Sahara (Richat Structure)

One of the tenants of my "First Earth" theory is that humans had risen in the ancient past vs. aliens 'seeding' our planet (and/or giving us the technology to advance). Some believe our history is much more vast than ever thought before. In other words, "WE are the...

One Tip for the Future… Sunscreen.

One reason I started the First Earth blog, was simply to keep track of things that were coming together a creating a picture in my mind. While I believe in the statistical probability of alien life, I’ve never seen hard evidence that proved it to me adequately. And the thought of how some other advanced race will someday appear and ‘save us’ (or has in the past) causes me to ask the question of the individual, “What church do/did you belong to?”

Statistically, I’ve discovered they were raised in a conservative church and, in my opinion, have traded saviors. But not always. Additionally, I have watched nearly all the Ancient Alien television shows, and throughout my life read and watched many other sources about aliens. And, as I’ve said, I have never seen any proof. What I did see was a pattern of the loss of some ancient civilization that has since disappeared. Nearly all mythology has stories of an advanced age or ‘golden age’ as well as how mankind was either created from earth, pulled from the earth, or come out from caves to be given enlightenment and/or knowledge. And setting aside aliens and literal translations of ancient texts, the pattern was one of a near “Extinction Level Event” that changed the face of the earth. An event that took thousands of years for mankind to recover from and rebuild. Forgotten Civilization by Dr. Robert Schoch

After reading a sci-fi novel titled Sunstorm by Arthur C. Clarke and Stephen Baxter, it all made sense. And within a short time later, I discovered, bought, and devoured Forgotten Civilization: The Role of Solar Outbursts in Our Past and Future by Dr. Robert Schoch. Being more of a creative person who sees patterns, Dr. Schoch’s book is a goldmine of theories, research, proof, and resources. He takes us on a journey through the Earth’s past and is able to show how the sun is “not-so-eternal” after all. From cave paintings to the rocks of the planet to newly found 12,000-year-old ruins, the evidence is clear that at least one ancient civilization has existed before on our planet.

When he originally dated the Sphinx at being closer to 9,000 years old, Dr. Schoch challenged the paradigms and beliefs of the age of civilization and the development of mankind. Ever since more and more evidence has proven him to be right.

Don’t be fooled, this book is not about scaring people into finding holes to go live in and prepare for the upcoming solar storm, but rather a well thought out observation of what has happened and what may still happen. I highly recommend this book. Not for the reasons I was searching for answers, but rather for the amazing research, theories, and journeys he describes. You’ll ‘visit’ the Sphinx in Egypt, Gobelki Tepe in southern Turkey, the statues of Easter Island, and time travel to various points in history across the globe. Science AND adventure! “But trust me on the sunscreen…”
