It is often argued that humans have exceeded the planet’s carrying capacity. The Spaceship Earth theory, so often promoted by those in the Earth sciences, likens this planet to a spaceship with limited resources available to those on board. The argument is that, what limited resources are available, are fast being depleted, and that we will soon run out. With an estimated 7.8 billion astronauts thought to be on board, it would ease the pressure on our limited stores, if some of us would go off world to a colony in space. A newly terraformed neighbor like Mars would do nicely. It could easily support a good percentage of our population, and also serve as a launching pad to other habitable celestial bodies such as Saturn’s moon, Titan.
Many refer to the “Apocalypse” without having the foggiest understanding of the word’s true meaning nor its implications. The word is derived from Greek and means “lifting of the veil.” Hence, it is a synonym for “revelation.” Whether one relies on mainstream media and academia, or whether one derives one’s information from alternative sources, startling information has emerged from both camps. We might refer to these shocking pieces of information as revelations, where, what was once hidden, has had the veil lifted to reveal Truth, a diminutive and shy refugee, who until now has lacked the temerity to show her face, hiding mainly in the shadows, concealed from view. So hunted has she been in fact that Untruth has often acted in her place. Attending formal gatherings and award ceremonies, receiving all the plaudits and praise that should have gone to her rival.
The other oft misunderstood phrase is the “End Times” or “Time of the End,” taken to be a cataclysmic Armageddon, in which the Earth and all its inhabitants, come to a tumultuous end in the form of a great conflagration, a clash of civilizations, in which everything achieved over the course of millennia is eviscerated with hardly a trace of what once was. And it is at this point that the cosmic clock is reset to midnight, so that the whole grand cycle can commence again, beginning with the Age of Aquarius.
In astrology, Aquarius is an air sign, which rules the air, space, space travel, technology, communications, metaphysical, spiritual, and non-physical. It is also under the rulership of the planet Uranus and its freedom-loving energy. In short, the New Age, the Golden Dawn, the Aquarian-Uranian Age of freedom is upon us, and above us and in front of us in full relief, the New Heaven and the New Earth, with the city of light, the holy city of the New Jerusalem all lit up by the rising sun at daybreak. This is the hour when the clock is reset to midnight, only to begin anew the round of the 12 cosmic hours that comprise the zodiac cycle of precession. We might refer to this time as the Exodus, the time when we are set free from this prison planet, ensconced as it is under the veil of Maya energy and the valley of Death as it has so long been.
The End Times are not the end, but a new beginning, a golden dawn, preparatory to a new era, when many of us leave this Earth plane in search of new vistas, no longer with the attenuated vision of Earthlings, who imagine this to be the only jewel in the cosmic crown, the only gem in the diadem of the Cosmic Father. As Winston Churchill once put it, “This is not the end; it is not even the beginning of the end; though it may perhaps be the end of the beginning.”
Faced as we are with climate change and the effects of global warming, setting into motion a multitude of Earth changes, it is uncertain whether it is the consequence of a natural cycle – the Milankovitch cycle as it is called – or the result of anthropogenic facts like greenhouse gases released from the burning of hydrocarbon fuels. Whatever the cause, we are in the midst of a plethora of Earth changes, where melting glaciers have resulted in glacial rebound, and a displacement of the weight imposing friction on the Pacific plates. This in turn has led to increased seismic and volcanic activity, tectonic shifts, tsunamis, megatsunamis, sea inundations, disappearing coastlines, subsumed cities, and the displacement of whole populations.
Of course, it doesn’t have to be this way for any of us. Just as Moses led his people out of bondage during the Exodus, the leviathan of the sea yawning and unfurling its tongue to provide a land bridge for the Hebrews escaping across the Red Sea, so the Van Allen Belt will also be traversed, so that the people of Earth might be provided with a thoroughfare to their penultimate hope, a rainbow after relentless typhoons. The time is upon us, the time is now, with the United States of America leading the way with its superior aerospace technology, which thanks to the reverse engineering of an alien spacecraft found at the Roswell, New Mexico crash site, has provided the means and the wherewithal for our Exodus, we star children, to our new home among the celestial bodies we once could only gaze upon and behold, envious of the alien inhabitants who might live there and wondering whether they were friend or foe.
