RARE SOLAR EVENT: PARKER SPIRAL Connects a Back Sided Plasma Cloud Erupting from Sun to Earth

There was a Coronal Mass Ejection ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE SUN THAT HAS MAGNETICALLY CONNECTED WITH THE EARTH.

Below is a warning that was issued due to proton flux increases.

PRESTO ALERT

Fast warning for important solar events with implications for the space environment. Source SIDC (RWC-Belgium)
Frequency ASAP, when needed.

The proton flux measured by GOES13 increased this morning. The storm threshold is not reached. We don’t expect the threshold to be passed.
A back sided plasma cloud came into view of STEREO B COR2 at 02:54UT, March 21, 2011. This CME is probably associated with the increased proton levels. The Earth is magnetically connected with the source site behind the Sun. The Parker spiral has bended magnetic field lines that guide the electrically charged protons. The Earth is near such field lines along which these protons travel. This is a rare event.

So, this is what all that means, and I even put a pretty picture in the explanation so it is a little easier to visualize how a CME can erupt on the back-side of the sun, and still effect Earth. IMO, that is absolutely amazing!

They are talking about the Parker Spiral.

The spiral shape is similar to the pattern produced by a spinning lawn sprinkler, for similar reasons: the solar wind travels outward from the Sun at a uniform rate, but an individual jet of solar wind from a particular feature on the Sun’s surface rotates with the solar rotation, making a spiral pattern in space. Unlike the jet from a sprinkler, the solar wind is tied to the magnetic field by MHD effects, so that magnetic field lines are tied to the material in the jet and take on an arithmetic spiral shape.

Here’s a picture of it…

See how the magnetic field lines actually look like a ‘spinning wave’ being emitted from the sun. Well, to be technical, the shape is this: Unlike the familiar shape of the field from a bar magnet, the Sun’s extended field is twisted into an arithmetic spiral by the magnetohydrodynamic influence of the solar wind.

So, the CME exploded on the other side of the sun, and it gets caught up in the magnetic wave of the Parker Spiral, pulling the CME around the curve of the sun. You can imagine it with the picture above…the CME following the Parker Spiral around. Well, as it is doing it, it comes in contact with Earth’s magnetic field, and pulls it in Earth’s direction…

Amazing Image of a SUPERNOVA Remnant (Bubble)

Its amazing the things we can see now, when not long ago, they were impossible to even imagine.

Supernova Remnant

Optical/X-ray Composite Image of 0509-67.5

December 14, 2010: A delicate sphere of gas, photographed by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope, floats serenely in the depths of space. The pristine shell, or bubble, is the result of gas that is being shocked by the expanding blast wave from a supernova. Called SNR 0509-67.5 (or SNR 0509 for short), the bubble is the visible remnant of a powerful stellar explosion in the Large Magellanic Cloud (LMC), a small galaxy about 160,000 light-years from Earth. Ripples in the shell’s surface may be caused by either subtle variations in the density of the ambient interstellar gas, or possibly driven from the interior by pieces of the ejecta. The bubble-shaped shroud of gas is 23 light-years across and is expanding at more than 11 million miles per hour (5,000 kilometers per second).


Humanity’s Dark Night of the Soul

The entire world, as a collective conscious, has been going through our own Dark Night of the Soul. St. John of the Cross describes this episode of the human condition in his writings of the same name.

The Dark Night of the Soul is when the soul goes through extreme hardship without the comfort of God or Jesus standing near, guiding the soul, giving the soul – and its constitute human body – faith in the spirit.

I am not of any denomination of religion, but I am very spiritual. So this is not about the various religious sects. This is about spirituality and nothing more.

During our possibly greatest need as a collectively intelligent, spiritual race of beings, we have been cut off from the Source. For those finding their way back, it has been a truly miraculous life now being lived. I know who you are… you are the ones experiencing the impossible.

You are the torch bearer in the darkness. The spark of light in a massive Dark Night of the Soul. You found your way back to spirit through immense adversary… and your experiences, beyond the realm of the physical are, paradoxically, your grounding to this life’s existence and purpose.

The changes are coming, because you are experiencing them happen in your own tabernacle. And the experiences are not relenting, but rather growing greater and more extreme. So take time out and imagine the ones not consciously experiencing the change. Have faith that they will have the strength to spiritually survive the coming end of this Dark Night. As you know, experiencing the impossible can easily shatter the mind…

Have faith. Humility. Personally you understand the difficulties soon to be faced. So rise above the tumult and reach down with a helping hand. The Dark Night of the Soul is ending, and you must be ready.


More Evidence of Increased Solar System Energy – Saturn’s Ice Moon, Enceladus, Cranks Up the Heat

-Saturn’s moon Enceladus is pumping out 2.6 times as much heat as all the hot springs in the Yellowstone region.
-The discovery raises the prospects of a liquid ocean beneath the moon’s icy shell.
-Scientists are at a loss to explain why the moon is so much hotter than previously thought.
-Scientists theorize Enceladus’ excess heat may be because the moon used to be in a different orbit that generated a fiercer gravitational tug-of-war with neighboring moons.

Saturn’s ice-shrouded moon Enceladus is pumping out more heat from its southern pole than all the hot springs at Yellowstone, and scientists are at a loss to explain it.

The prodigious outpouring of energy significantly boosts the likelihood that an ocean of liquid is sealed beneath the moon’s icy surface. Water, in turn, is considered a key ingredient for life.

The new data isn’t enough to nail down how large an ocean might exist on Enceladus, or its location beneath the ice.

It does, however, make computer models hard to explain if Enceladus lacks liquid water, lead researcher Carly Howett with the Southwest Research Institute in Boulder, Colo., told Discovery News.

For a long time, scientists thought tidal interactions with neighbor satellites and Saturn would account for about 1.1 gigawatts of energy pumping out of Enceladus. Heat from the natural decay of radioactive materials inside the moon would add another 0.3 gigawatts.

New research from the Cassini spacecraft, however, shows Enceladus is giving off closer 14 gigawatts.

“This is a huge amount of energy that we don’t understand,” Howett said.

Scientists have known since 2005 that the southern polar region of Enceladus is geologically active, with the hub of activity centered on four 80-mile long, one-mile wide trenches, known as “tiger stripes.” Huge plumes of ice particles and water vapor, sprinkled with organic particles, are shooting out into space from the fissures.

“The whole water thing, the eruption of the water is fascinating,” Cassini scientist John Pearl, with NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, told Discovery News. “It’s the plumes that give you an awful lot of information about the possibility of an ocean. There’s some source of energy that’s driving these things.”

Scientists theorize Enceladus’ excess heat may be because the moon used to be in a different orbit that generated a fiercer gravitational tug-of-war with neighboring moons. Energy that built up in the past may be being released now.

No matter what the cause, the realization that the icy moon is pumping out as much heat as 20 coal-fired powered plants has scientists thinking.

“It’s clear that whatever is producing the heat, Enceladus meets many requirements for life,” Cassini scientist Larry Esposito, with the University of Colorado at Boulder, writes in Astrobiology magazine. “We know it has a liquid ocean, organics and an energy source. And to top it off, we know of organisms on Earth in similar environments.”

“This result indicates episodic heating of the moon. The larger heat flow means it is easier to melt water below the surface, but Enceladus may freeze up in between. The implications are therefore mixed for life,” Esposito wrote in an email to Discovery News.

“When you look at things like the deep water vents, you can’t help but think that something like this is going on on Enceladus,” added Howett. “Why not? We see organics, high heat flows. We can postulate until kingdom come, but until we actually go there and have a look we’re not going to know.”

The research is published in the March 4 issue of Journal of Geophysical Research.


Archetype Branching and Shattering Paradigms

There are so many thoughts recently about the One, the Nobody, The Savior, etc. Each thought seems to have its own idea about what this entity is. It is like this entity has different takes on what it is…a He, a Father, a She, a Mother, a God, etc. It starts as an archetype and it branches, splitting into different myths, different foundational ‘Truths’, isolating itself from itself as concepts are crystalized…different laws, different ideas of what it likes…and dislikes. On and on…

We are all so bound by these concepts that have been handed down, that we bind those concepts into our reality. When we bind ourselves to concepts, over time, constructs are put into place to make those concepts a reality into our worldview. And when the concepts turned constructs take root, the favor of bondage is returned…over and over, building and building, strengthening the chains and burying them deeper and deeper, rooting them into further isolation…separating generations further from the original truth…the original archetype. Distortion manifests.

Maybe that is what freedom is all about. Open mindedness, Free Will, Faith in your own self. They allow us to cross the ravines set in place between the branches…between pathways. To have the courage and strength…and resolve to make it through the blind spots inherent in such shadows beneath the walls of the ravines. Faith in yourself to step off the path, and find new ones that others are traversing. Find others to explore with you…helping to leave the isolation behind…finding ways to make it back Home…with friends.

Think of these ‘branching pathways’ with the darkness of the ravines between them…as the universe…

And you thought I was only talking about ourselves…stupid ego…

Paradigms are the concepts we turn into constructs…they then chain us, bind us to them. Embedded in these living concepts they have taken on a reality because we have built them around us, using them as if they were indeed, reality. In order to change the paradigm, we must change ourselves and break away from their thought constructs…so hard to do because we are living inside them…

Concepts are the initial thought forms…we build up certain concepts and begin putting them into relation to our lives. Some we throw out, and some we continue buidling upon, thinking and working out in our heads (and computers nowadays) how we can manifest the concepts into our reality…then, we actually begin manifesting our thoughts turned to concepts as we work out how and if they will be benificial to our physical lives. We begin building the concepts into our physical reality and the constructs are born.

We don’t have to literally build the concepts into constructs like a building, but, like religions and philosophies and ‘law systems’, we build them through communication. When they reach a particular tipping threshold, the collective begins reacting these communicated concepts as if they are a reality, and the communicated concepts become constructs in our lives…we build entire governments and civilizations around the constructs.

Science, religion, philosophies, education, etc are the major constructs…they are the paradigms…or a collective cohesion and working order of multiple constructs.

That is why paradigm change is so difficult. We are embedded in all this…everywhere. And in order to break down a paradigm, many multiples of constructs must constantly be broken down. In order for that to happen, other thoughts must take root, forming the concepts…and with enough influence behind them, they form cracks in the existing paradigms. But, as you can see, it is a monumental task, as others who do not want paradigm transformation are repairing the damage to the existing paradigms with all their might.

So, you get revolutions of sorts, where the influence is great and strong. Punching cracks in the existing paradigms, quick, hard and constant…persistant.

Then the collapse happens, and the world shifts…
