Last night, sitting around a table in a tiny, beautiful, Amish-built cabin in a remote section of Brown County, Indiana, talking about sasquatch sightings and such, someone mentioned that the first Russian cosmonauts lost their memory when they went into space and left the magnetic field of the Earth behind. That since then, space suits have always been constructed to recreate Earth’s magnetic field. Wow!
That info made me think again about reports that the Earth’s magnetic field is weakening, and what this weakening field might portend for humanity — we of the long memory for “slights” and “wrongs,” both real and imagined — especially those of us who live in/on lands where the ground has been trampled by conquering, pillaging, raping and death-dealing armies for centuries.
And it made me wonder about 12.12.12 and 12.21.12, as possibly harbingers of a future time when spaciousness, i.e., memory-erasure, might be in the offing.
So I did a bit of googling this morning. First check this out, from August 18, 2012:
Then check out this excerpt from a longer article. Created on January 3, but not sure of the year. 2012?
with Gregg Braden, by Wynn Free
Wynn: Do you have any idea how this magnetic shift might change consciousness?
Gregg: The speculation is that there is a correlation between consciousness and magnetics. In order to understand how this connection might work, it is useful to compare it to a computor’s memory. The magnetic fields in the memory are held in place through an electrical charge — a trickle charge — within the computer itself. When the batteries in the computer die, the charge is gone, and the memory is lost. We have to reload the operating system.
Similarly, by researchers and descendents of indigenous peoples believe that when the earth goes through what science sees as a magnetic reversal, it also will be a great shift and cleansing of the earth’s consciousness. There will be nothing holding all the magnetic patterns that have been put in place. So when we awaken from this shift, what becomes consciousness will be our truest nature, our truest essence. And the memory of all of the evil or all the bad things or all of the grudges or the ego and we’ve held against one another as individuals and nations will not be part of that new consciousness, that new grid.
From that perspective, many traditions predict, sense, or speculate that we are nearing a time of what they call the Great Cleansing, and that this cleansing is happening at a level of core memory of consciousness.
Wynn: So is it possible to assume that in some way, our memory is connected to this magnetic field?
Gregg: I think so. I think that because of the strange accounts of the astronauts who left earth and went into space during the Apollo Program. In leaving the earth’s atmosphere and circling the planet many miles above the surface, the affects of earth’s magnetics were negligible. And the astronauts began to have experiences that they were not prepared or trained for, that were totally unanticipated.
When they were in space and looked back to earth, they began having insights and feelings, awakenings and awarenesses that they had never had when they were on the earth. It meant something different to each one of them.
In much the same way, friends of mine who went to Viet Nam were all changed when they came home. It changed everyone. For some, the change was so painful that they could never speak about it, and for others, the change was a catalyst in their lives and they spoke of it incessantly.
And I believe there was actually a PBS special that documented this same phenomenon with the astronauts, that they were never the same afterward. When they came back, there were some who didn’t know what to do with their outer space experience. Some turned to drugs and alcohol. Others channeled the change that occurred within them in very positive, life-affirming projects.
One of this latter group was Dr. Edgar Mitchell, who founded the Noetic Sciences Organization in an effort to validate the phenomenon of human consciousness. Another astronaut undertook the search for Noah’s Ark, and actually found it embedded in the ice on Mt. Ararat, right where the Bible said it would be.
Wynn: So the implication here is that these astronauts, because they left the magnetic field of the earth, had some kind of spiritual awakening?
Gregg: They certainly went through a catharsis when they were no longer in the influence of the earth’s magnetic field.
We also see something similar happening when we look at the magnetic fields of the earth. They are not constant over the surface of the earth, and contour maps, available through United States Geologic Survey, show the varying intensities of magnetic fields over the surface of the earth — where magnetic fields have a very high intensity and where the intensity if very low.
Those fields have shifted over time, and may actually account for why populations of humans have migrated to the places they’ve migrated to. They might have been following these magnetic contours.
What happens is that in the places where the magnetics are very low, where their effects are negligible, tremendous change and innovation appear to occur. Where the magnetics are traditionally high, those are the places of stagnation where changes, although they do happen, take a long time and change is very slow in coming.
If I were coming here from another world and didn’t know anything about the people of the earth, and if I were looking for a place where the opportunity of change was the greatest, I would look for the zero contour lines. And if you look at a map of the magnetics on earth today, what you find is that there is a zero contour line that runs along the West Coast of North America — along the California coast and on up off the coast of Alaska. In other words, the magnetics along the West Coast are almost nil!
When we think of the West Coast, we think about wacky California. Well, the truth is California is a seed, one of several, and it’s traditionally been very innovative in technology, science, fashion, finance, and the arts, because there is an opportunity for tremendous change there.
Within North American, the flip side of that would be an area of highest magnetics, where the magnetic fields are the most dense. And you find this down through some of the Southeastern states — the very states that are traditionally viewed as being conservative. This doesn’t mean that change can’t happen there. What is says, however, is that change takes a long time there, and people have to see a really good reason before they are going to budge from what they’ve always done.
Wynn: So where the magnetic field is less dense, people are more open to the moment?
Gregg: They’re open to change, period. It doesn’t mean that the change is good, bad, right, or wrong. It’s important to be clear about this. The consciousness of the people will determine how that change comes about.
I’ll give an ironic example. There is a zero contour line that runs right through the Middle East. It actually runs almost directly underneath the area we call the Suez Canal, right up into Israel, right along the coast of the Red Sea. Yes, right in that area is a zero contour line. This means that area is ripe for change. But again, how that change comes about — whether it’s peaceful and constructive or angry and destructive — is determined by the consciousness of the people who live there.
Wynn: So it’s not good or bad either way?
Gregg: Precisely. It simply is an opportunity for change. At the same time, the highest magnetic contour lines noted anywhere on the planet earth have traditionally been in portions of the former Soviet Union, Russia, and Siberia. We know that in that part of the world, there was a system that was in place, and while change came about, it was slow and painful, a long time coming, with a lot of suffering. But when that change happened, there was a cascade effect, and it happened almost overnight.
So the correlations are very interesting between human consciousness, the opportunities for innovation, change, doing things in a new way, and the magnetics of our world.
