Global Climate Change:
Cosmic Convergence Accelerates Epochal Planetary Transformation
Who among us has not heard of the Second Coming?
Who throughout the Orient has never heard the prophecies about the coming of Lord Maitreya?
Within the world of Islam and Arabic culture, how often is The Madhi invoked, and this soon expected savior prayed to?
Then there is the first appearance of the long-awaited Messiah for practitioners of traditional Judaism the world over.
Finally, there is the little-known (within Western society) and eagerly anticipated Vishnu Avatar of Hinduism known as Lord Kalki, who is propitiated by millions around the globe.
Lord Kalki: The Tenth and Final Maha-Vishnu Avatar
There are ten major incarnations of Lord Vishnu within the tradition of Hinduism. There are approximately twenty-five incarnations of Lord Vishnu that have been identified within the current cycle of time as defined by the four yugas. Of these, the last major three include, in order of their most recent appearance, Lord Buddha, Lord Krishna, and Lord Rama. Lord Kalki is the tenth and final incarnation of the Maha (Great) Vishnu Avatars. His appearance marks the end of the Kali Yuga (also known as the Iron Age) and the establishment of a new spirituality based on divine revelation and scriptural truths, both of which issue forth directly from the Lord, Himself.
Why is Lord Kalki’s appearance on the world stage so significant?

Wilcox – Technology 1
As a university level teacher of English and other subjects in Japan, I stress to my colleagues and students that there is no politically neutral pedagogy. Educators must be aware (although a majority are not) of how the
mechanics and methods of a curriculum are not value-free but part of a long
term political and ideological plan/trend.
I was recently reading about the ideas of the philosopher Arthur
Schopenhauer, who according to Tom Sunic writing in the Occidental Observer, “is a crucial source in understanding the psychopathological impact of religions, myths and systems of beliefs.” I am especially interested in Schopenhauer’s “denunciation of the will to political power” and how it relates to issues of science and technology.
According to Sunic (2010):
We all live the hyperreal, as the French philosopher Rosset writes; we all crave for the Double—be it in its negative or the positive form. We all wish to be something we are not; the duplicate of ourselves. “In place of the world as it is, we invent a ‘duplicate’ or a ‘double,’ a parallel universe which functions as a phantom rival to the existing world.”
The disadvantage of living in the real world is that life in it is drab,
frightening, or boring; the advantage of the “doubled” life lies not only in the fact that such life does not exist, but that such life doesn’t even have to exist in order for us to believe it to be true and real! In other words, this desire for a spectral world is not so much a desire for something different, as it is a desire to get rid of the real world.
I think this is a profound point that goes unquestioned 99 percent of the
time. There is an overall tendency to assent to the inevitability and goodness of scientific progress. But one can definitely see a trend toward our unconscious “getting rid of the real“ in favor of a virtual, “hyperreality” in modern society. For example, you don’t have to look hard to see people on the street absorbed in their cell phone, iPod or other electro-gizmo. How has this affected social relations?
Wilcox – Technology 2
While digital and computer technologies offer many advantages, it is very rare that we question what we lose in the tradeoff (which are inevitably presented, and sold to us as a fait accompli, in other words, without meaningful democratic debate on the topic).
Ironically, as the world becomes more technologically advanced, the destruction of the natural world is occurring at a parallel pace. Are we getting rid of the real and replacing it with a virtual, hyper-reality? The answer seems to be, “yes.” Is this a wise path? In my opinion, the answer is “no.”
I am not arguing against the use of science and technology, but for democratic decision making and ethical choices. For example, whatever happened to the “Hemp Car” that Henry Ford created in 1941, that was ten times stronger than a car made of metal? Modern automobiles from cradle to grave are some of the most environmentally destructive technologies (as most of them are are now produced) ever invented. There are endless examples of this misapplication of technology for cynical ends (Schopenhauer’s mischievous “will to power”) at the expense of the overall health and sustainability of the world.
As technology progresses, we also endure the inhumane use of technology resulting in loss of human dignity and
freedom. Do more surveillance cameras really reduce crime? Will a day come when we are monitored/manipulated/controlled 24/7/365 through various intrusive means as with Big Brother in George Orwell’s novel 1984? Some folks say that
day is already here.
Many people who trumpet the wonders of innovative technology are often in
favor of greater political control over society (politicians, technocrats), while others (the person on the street) are simply looking at the short term benefits regardless of the long term consequences.
The entire material universe resides in a veritable
OCEAN Of CONSCIOUSNESS
“Because there are laws such as gravity, the universe can and will create itself from nothing. It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going.”
~ Stephen Hawking
This statement bears repeating, as its ramifications are so profound and far-reaching that we feel it must be addressed in the worldwide forum of philosophical discourse.
“It is not necessary to invoke God to light the blue touch paper and set the Universe going.”
May we respectfully submit that, when any of us use a global platform to present ideas and opinions with such consequential import, it does become incumbent upon us to defend those hypotheses in the court of public debate. The internet is, after all, a place that is visited by everyone, especially the youth of the world. They often look to the authorities and experts of the planet to receive wisdom and guidance about the true order of things. Therefore, we begin this debate by asking the following rather provocative question.
Has common sense, as well as the ability to utilize the human faculty of reason, completely fled from some of those who people the highest echelons of scientific inquiry?
When Stephen Hawking uttered these words during an appearance in an on-line video about his new book — The Grand Design — he made a fatal and obvious error in pleading this extremely tenuous and quite indefensible case.
Stephen tells us that “… the universe can and will create itself from nothing.”
We have no quarrel that something was created from nothing, except that “the nothing” is perhaps an infinite void of Consciousness, which is actually far, far from nothing.
We are compelled to ask who or what created “the nothing” that is doing the creating?!
Furthermore, we might ask what or who is doing the willing that is quite necessary for the creating from nothing?
Has Stephen now conferred the powers of creation on Creation itself, without the agency of a Creator? This faulty reasoning represents a much greater collapse in humankind’s capacity to utilize its God-given faculty of reason. Which is, by the way, also responsible for the ongoing collapse of modern society, as well as the whole of Western Civilization.
Now we do see that Stephen has given us a GREAT teaching moment here. God often does create little dramas in order to draw in a grand audience who will be duly informed by the global discussion that one of his little creations (that would be Stephen Hawking) has helped co-create. Thank you, Stephen Hawking!
The Story of Job
The new millennium has brought to Planet Earth a very unique, unprecedented and challenging set of circumstances.
For those coming from the Christian tradition, there is no better biblical story than the story of Job, because of how well it universally informs our current experience. Truly, on both an individual and collective level, this timeless scriptural anecdote enlightens and edifies, encourages and empowers.
If your religious tradition or spiritual path is other than Christian, you will still find the following narrative quite compelling. After all, isn’t everyone living out their own version of extremely “interesting times” in 2012 and beyond.
The whole place has turned into a set – a global stage, if you will, for everyone’s own enactment of their unique and personal experience of being a “Job”.
However, there is one extremely important point which many today seem to forget. As they play their parts in either comedy or tragedy, they lose sight of who really wrote this cosmic drama.
They also forget who produced it, acts in it and created the costumes.
They especially forget who directs it —>
Ultimately GOD is in control.
GOD is in charge of everything … all the time … everywhere.
GOD is the Highest Power
Satan, Lucifer, the Antichrist, the Beast, the devil, the Dark Side, the Black Magicians, the Shadow Government, the Global Control Matrix, the NWO Controllers, the Illuminati, the Axis of Evil, the Bilderbergers, the Freemasons (33rd degree and up), the British Monarchy, the Rothschilds, the Rockefellers, the Zionists, the Greys, the Reptilians, the Draconians, the Archons, etc. possess whatever power and control that they actually do only through the will of GOD.
So many people today confer an inordinate amount of power and influence on the Dark Side.
Please know that the Dark Side is made up of agents of every sort and kind.
Each agent, as they appear on Planet Earth, has a heart which beats. That heart can only beat by the grace of GOD.
Each agent breathes every moment of every day of their lives. Each in-breath and out-breathe can only occur by the grace of GOD.
Now, you tell us who is completely in charge of directing this “Greatest Show on Earth”!?
As the following story exquisitely illustrates, ole Satan is merely doing the bidding of his Lord and Master – GOD, the Supreme Being, Shiva, Wakan Tanka, Paratman, Allah, Rama, the Self, Yahweh, the Creator, Krishna, Christ, the Buddha, Jehovah, Vishnu, Quetzalcoatl, Isis, the Great Spirit, Brahman, the Almighty, Mahashakti, Jesus, Muhammad, the Divine Mother, the Ground of Being, Supreme Consciousness — whoever it is that you revere as the Highest Power in the universe, and “Prime Mover of the Cosmos”.
Therefore, Satan is merely a lowly agent who ONLY has power if you give it to him.
However, he does serve as an agent of change. Oftentimes, great change!
Some times the change can be so awesome and profoundly transformative that it transports a spiritual aspirant right back to the Godhead.
Whatsoever is brought upon you
take cheerfully and be patient,
For gold is tried in the fire
and acceptable men in the furnace of adversity.
Here is some required reading for those who want to go deeper into the real basis of the relationship between God and man, and that old trickster Satan:

I live my life totally absorbed in forbearance – and cultivate peace and joy wherever I go.
Life on planet Earth is really heating up, isn’t it?! Here it is very hot; there it is very cold. In some places it is very rainy or completely under water, while other regions suffer from unending drought and years without rainfall. One never knows what is just around the corner that will test one’s mettle and forbearance.
This evolving fact of life is especially true in the more ‘civilized’ nations of the West where many have lived a relatively pampered existence. All of the taken-for-granted luxuries are now under threat of loss due to the economic downturn. Unlike the third world countries, which have always suffered from lack, many of us are now experiencing deprivations for the very first time. This emerging context demonstrates the need for me to be truly detached from the vicissitudes of life. Planetary transitions, with such profound and fundamental change, are never easy or without major challenges.
Why is the world rushing headlong into environmental armageddon?
Is there any doubt that planet Earth has been undergoing an environmental armageddon for decades? We are not just referring to the spate of oil spills all over the world such as the BP Gulf Oil Spill, or the many other toxic deluges which go unreported unlike the Hungary Toxic Sludge Disaster, or the ongoing destruction of the world’s rainforests like those being systematically wiped out in the Amazon Basin. We are also alluding to the “unseen” worldwide chemical apocalypse, the global proliferation of electro-pollution (EMR), the major uptick in both man-made geological and natural geopathic stress events on the micro and macro levels, as well as the relentless contamination of living environments throughout the planet with radioactive byproducts and pollution.
There are many other forms of ecological apocalypse taking place which, when viewed in the aggregate, are taking an immense toll on human, animal and plant life. Many of these ongoing assaults against the biosphere have unforeseen and collective ramifications which are extremely far-reaching and of great consequence to the viability of the planet.
Just how far-reaching? How consequential? Are these environmental issues, which have been occurring for well over a century, so urgent that we need to address them now? Does the fate of humankind really lie in the balance? How about the future of the planet itself?
Clearly, Mother Earth has been sending a barrage of urgent and emphatic messages to her billions of human inhabitants for many decades. She has done this via every mode of planetary communication – droughts and deluges, plagues and pestilence, earthquakes and volcanoes, hurricanes and tornadoes, mudslides and sinkholes, wildfires and avalanches, etc. And, yet, we continue to ignore them at our peril. Few understand that humanity will continue to suffer from a ever-increasing outbreak of alphabet soup diseases, multi-infection syndromes and infectious disease epidemics which have exploded on the healthcare landscape during the 21st century (a trend which was first established during the second half of the last century).
Our present reality on planet Earth is quite well marked by an inordinate number of planetary tipping points — countless thresholds beyond which environmental health and ecological balance quickly deteriorate — as well as a myriad of critical breaking points throughout the global technosphere. We wonder out loud where all this will lead to when these various mutually reinforcing trajectories start intersecting as they did with an earthquake, tsunami and nuclear meltdown/crisis in Japan.
