I’ve been apart of SETI@Home for ever and after joining the UW team i now lead. Wowzers cool!
As I quest to find more UFO video from around the area I seen this one from a related video (which is no longer on YouTube). The referring video was centered around the Occupy Seattle movement, I personally prefer to Occupy Bacon, and there were news reports sighting the UFO yet after looking online those reports appear to be faked.
I was doing some more research for the May 20th partial solar eclipse on YouTube and found a cool UFO sighting video from around Vancouver Washington. The video is good quality and is fairly short though it makes me wonder if anyone will capture a UFO during the eclipse.

Recently connections have been found between the ancient Mayan calendar, I-Ching, Jewish Bible, Book of Revelations, intergalactic alignment, and the end of days. If you grew up in the 80-90s then more than likely you’ve heard at one time or another the world will end. I can remember the Y2K crap that went around and got everyone into a uproar and nothing happening with at start of the new millennium. Though this time it maybe different.
Let’s start by taking at look at the Mayan calendar and intergalactic alignment. It is well documented that the Mayan calendar is the most accurate calendar in history and that it also has a specific end date, December 21, 2012 (oh shit Batman! that is less than two years away). With all the different end of days stories and beliefs, the correlation between the Mayan calendar and intergalactic alignment is intriguing to say the least. The Mayans heavily documented the planets and stars and based their entire civilization on specific dates gained from watching the heavens but why have it end? Did the Mayans predict a cataclysmic event over 5,000 year earlier before its supposed to happen? Maybe…
On December 21, 2012 the Earth, Sun and the center of the Milky Way (the name of our galaxy) will be in perfect alignment and its that alignment which could reverse the magnetic poles of the planet. If the magnetic poles are shifted then the Earth’s crust could shift all over its self. Just think about John Cusack’s movie 2012 but this would be real. Sorta makes your butt hole tighten up huh? Scientist though are unclear on the severity because for all anyone knows the shift could be a slow and gradual process. This leads into the biblical outlook on the end of world.
Don’t believe me? Read it on Wikipedia
Biblical and other religious textes point to the end of days as a series of events culminating in massive destruction that include famine, climate, disease, and war. We humans are extraordinarily efficient at killing each other and creating more problems than we solve. Taking a short glimpse at the daily headlines consist of famine, climate change, disease, and war and its pretty easy to see how destructive we have become. Recently, the world has been experiencing increasing storm strength, Hurricane Katrina, violent earthquakes, the latest in Haiti, that topple buildings or send huge Tsunamis on a collision course with coastal residents, Sumatra 2004, and the spread of highly contagious diseases like H1N1. Are these the real time biblical events described and are we now leading up to the end of the world?
There is also a time date associated with the end of days and it’s very close to 2012. Is this just coincidence? I am not sure.
But it is not just people making the predictions now. The dawn of the internet has lead to the development of The Web Bot program. The Web Bot looks at the world wide web, a pretty big task, and analyzes keywords looking for patterns. The data gathered points to end date of planet Earth on December 21, 2012. I do have 1 question for the developers of the Web Bot. As the Web Bot crawls around the web analyzing keywords could the amount of information online regarding a certain topic actually influence its outcome? Like say, I dunno, December 21, 2012 and the end of the world.
Like many other doomsday proficiencies, December 21, 2012 may come and go without a fleeting glance. The proficiencies expire and nothing else can disrupt the perfect little cycle we have down on planet Earth. Wrong-O!
On Friday April 13, 2029 an asteroid name MN4 will make a flyby planet Earth, think Top Gun – "Negative ghost rider the pattern is full". MN4 will fly so close to Earth that it will pass in between orbiting satellites and the planet. Whew that is close one. Crazy as it maybe, and a miss is likely, the real crazy will begin approximately 7 years later when MN4 makes its return visit. The 2029 flyby may alter the asteroid’s trajectory just enough for it to impact the Earth in 2035. Not what I call comforting.
So with all these different cultures, civilizations, and now science, it is hard to discount that something is going to change the lives of everyone on this planet in the near future. Hopefully people will start evaluate their place on this planet and how they want to live. Will that life be for destruction and chaos or will that be one of peace and cooperation? Nostradamus alludes to the human species in having a choice about the outcome.
In the Lost Book of Nostradamus there is a picture of a monk holding an empty book (Book of Life) face out to the reader. One interpretation of the image is that Nostradamus is telling us that we have a choice and role in our own futures. If humans have a choice then why do continue to make the wrong ones? I don’t know and if I did I would tell no body – MUHAHAHA! Just kidding or am I? MUHAHAHA!
What are my thoughts on all this? Being a person that sides with science, I cannot help but think about the many different ways that ancient civilizations and biblical texts, profits and now scientist have to come together to see similar problems. No matter th
Great news for SETI participates and the SETI institue as well. SETI with help from Paul Allen is going to be bringing 42 radio dishes online to conduct a 24/7/365 sweep of the sky. Right now there isn’t any 24/7 sweep so this with dramatically increase the probability of finding a singal from another planet.
I’ve been a part of the SETI program since 2002, my first internet group, using the SETI@HOME software to crunch data units. Now SETI is using a new software package BIONIC that allows for more than just SETI data units to be crunched. My team, Goingbigger Exploration, has 3 members so far and we are continually putting up new stats.
Jyll, the newest member, is climbing up fast and will probably pass me soon. My home computer is unreliable and likes to crash while running the program, probably because it is a 9 year old PIII 800. Chris is slowly getting som numbers up there but I know he is busy doing chores around the house to think about running his BIONIC software. At leas the team is growing and over a period of time we will get some serious statistics up there.
I am glad to see the SETI program get help to keep this dream and pursuit moving forward. It is pretty cool to be a part of something like this and when life is dicovered I can say that my computers helped out :)
On Friday May 11, 2007 I had the privilege to visit Meteor Crater as part of my trip to Arizona, finally getting around to blogging about it. It was so cool since being into space and having a interest in the galaxy, its formation, and the possibilities of travel.
I’ve seen TV-show after TV-show on meteors and always Meteor Crater is brought up, because it is the largest and most well preserved crater on Earth.
Eduardo Donoso was our tour guide and what a treat it was. Being the head tour guide and long time expert of Meteor Crater whom has been featured on the History Channel, I got a the fullest and most complete account of the crater’s history and of the surrounding areas. That was a special treat for me and learning more of the history surrounding the crater, land owners, mining claims and old museums gave me a great appreciation for this individual crater.
Through the tour, I felt a connection crater while contemplation my own thoughts on life throughout the universe.
Visiting Meteor Crater brings deeper meaning to the Friday 13 asteroid that will pass the Earth in 2029, which could impact Earth in later years. There is a flash video regarding the end of the world and its very funny yet has many truths in to – watch video.
If you have a chance to visit the crater I highly recommend it, for more than just pictures, as there is a lot to be learned from the whole experience and how fragile life is.
