Flashback Friday: Uranus & Pluto

Posted on Updated on

It’s Friday the 13th! Eek! Everybody…RUN! Hide! Yeah, well, enough of the hysteria. We have plenty of that going on with the corona beer virus. Sugar, rice, pasta, Clorox & Lysol hand wipes, bleach, hand sanitizer and toilet paper doesn’t stand a chance. Now, we have to deal with the dreaded number 13. E-gads! The humanity!

March 13 has been a rather busy day in history. Curiously, Uranus and Pluto are involved.

Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun. The name of Uranus references the ancient Greek deity of the sky Uranus, the father of Cronus (Saturn) and grandfather of Zeus (Jupiter) […]. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in [our] solar system and, […] is the only planet whose name is derived directly from a figure of Greek mythology. Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune and, both have bulk chemical compositions which differ from that of the larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. Uranus’ atmosphere is similar to Jupiter’s and Saturn’s in its primary composition of hydrogen and helium but, it contains more “ices” such as water, ammonia and methane […]. It has the coldest planetary atmosphere in the solar system […]. Like the other giant planets, Uranus has a ring system, a magnetosphere and numerous moons. The Uranian system has a unique configuration because its axis of rotation is tilted sideways, nearly into the plane of its solar orbit. Its north and south poles, therefore, lie where most other planets have their equators. Voyager 2 remains the only spacecraft to visit the planet.

Like the classical planets, Uranus is visible to the naked eye but, it was never recognised as a planet by ancient observers because of its dimness and slow orbit. [Two hundred, thirty-nine years ago, today], Sir William Herschel first observed Uranus on March 13, 1781 (from the garden of his house at 19 New King Street in Bath, Somerset, England, now the Herschel Museum of Astronomy), leading to its discovery as a planet, expanding the known boundaries of the solar system for the first time in history and making Uranus the first planet classified as such with the aid of a telescope.

Pluto is an icy dwarf planet in the Kuiper belt, a ring of bodies beyond the orbit of Neptune. It was the first Kuiper belt object to be discovered and is the largest known dwarf planet. Pluto was discovered by Clyde Tombaugh in 1930 as the ninth planet from the Sun. After 1992, its status as a planet was questioned following the discovery of several objects of similar size in the Kuiper belt. In 2005, Eris, a dwarf planet in the scattered disc which is 27% more massive than Pluto, was discovered. This led the International Astronomical Union (IAU) to define the term “planet”, formally, in 2006, during their 26th General Assembly. That definition excluded Pluto and reclassified it as a dwarf planet.

It is the ninth-largest and tenth-most-massive known object directly orbiting the Sun. It is the largest known trans-Neptunian object by volume but, is less massive than Eris. Like other Kuiper belt objects, Pluto is primarily made of ice and rock and, is relatively small…about one-sixth the mass of the Moon and one-third its volume. It has a moderately eccentric and inclined orbit […]. This means that Pluto periodically comes closer to the Sun than Neptune but, a stable orbital resonance with Neptune prevents them from colliding.

[Observations] of Neptune in the late 19th century led astronomers to speculate that Uranus’s orbit was being disturbed by another planet besides Neptune. In 1906, Percival Lowell, a wealthy Bostonian who had founded [the] Lowell Observatory in Flagstaff, Arizona, in 1894, started an extensive project in search of a possible ninth planet, which he termed “Planet X“. Lowell and his observatory conducted his search until his death in 1916 but, to no avail. Unknown to Lowell, his surveys had captured two faint images of Pluto on March 19 and April 7, 1915 but, they were not recognized for what they were.

Percival’s widow, Constance Lowell, entered into a ten-year legal battle with the Lowell Observatory over her husband’s legacy and the search for Planet X did not resume until 1929. [23-year-old] Clyde Tombaugh, who had just arrived at the observatory, discovered a possible moving object on photographic plates on February 18, 1930. After the observatory obtained further confirmatory photographs, news of the discovery was telegraphed to the Harvard College Observatory ninety years ago, today, on March 13, 1930. Pluto has yet to complete a full orbit of the Sun since its discovery, as one Plutonian year is 247.68 years long.

The discovery made headlines around the globe. Lowell Observatory, which had the right to name the new object, received more than 1,000 suggestions from all over the world, ranging from Atlas to Zymal. Constance Lowell proposed Zeus, then Percival and finally Constance. These suggestions were disregarded. The name Pluto, after the god of the underworld, was proposed by Venetia Burney (1918–2009), an eleven-year-old schoolgirl in Oxford, England, who was interested in classical mythology.

Chris Thomas: An Update On Nibiru

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files

Introduction

I don’t know about you but, I like looking at sunsets. It doesn’t seem to matter how bad a day it has been for me, or for anyone else on the planet, taking a few minutes at the end of the day to watch the sun drop below the horizon just calms the nerves and renews my sense of well-being. During August, I have paid particular attention to the sunsets, attempting to catch a glimpse of the “new sun”, the one we are assured is called “Nibiru” that has been travelling through our solar system dragging its seven planets along with it. As I sit at my keyboard, I realise that I am, actually, sitting at my keyboard. I am not sitting at another keyboard in some alternate universe. I have not been vapourised by the bow “shock-wave” that this sun Nibiru was reputedly pushing before it, destroying all life in the solar system. Funny that. But, on the other hand, it looks as though the HGF (Human Gullibility Factor) has been working overtime.

For several months, we have been warned by those who claim to have insider knowledge from the NSA, CIA, NASA, and the Vatican, telling us that Nibiru is on its way through our solar system, wreaking its destruction, despite any evidence that could support these claims. Oh, how I long for the time when humans finally wake up and re-integrate their souls back into their bodies because, then, we wouldn’t have to put up with any more of this c**p.

A History of Nibiru

The name Nibiru is most usually associated with the translations of the Annunaki material by Zecharia Sitchin. Sitchin was acknowledged as the world’s leading expert at translating ancient Sumerian “Cuneiform” writing into English. In the 1960’s, Sitchin began translating a collection of clay tablets that were reputed to be about 5,000 years old. These tablets state that the story they tell was dictated to a Sumerian scribe who, accurately, recorded the story being dictated to him.

*Note: The story was dictated to a scribe, therefore, it had to be dictated by “someone”. This someone is never identified in the story the clay tablets tell. If, as claimed in the story, the information was the actual history of humanity, then, the history would have been recorded as it happened. In other words, the history was common knowledge amongst all of the people. So, why was it necessary for a story to be dictated to a scribe? The answer is, that, it is just that…a story and not reality.*

I have commented on the lack of truth, and the lack of validity, of this dictated story many times in my books and essays, so, [I] am not going to repeat the story here. Enough to say is, that it is a complete fantasy, deliberately designed to mislead people in the current times into believing that our “creators” are an alien race, known as the “Velon”. Within this dictated fantasy story is the “legend” of the planet Nibiru. Please note the word planet. The Velon/Annunaki fantasy story claims that Nibiru is a “travelling” planet that enters our solar system every 3,600 years.

Several of its orbits have caused problems within our solar system, destroying one planet with the Earth and, the asteroid belt being made from the debris of this collision. According to Sitchin’s translations and calculations, the last time that this fictitious planet entered our solar system was about 2,200 years ago (about 200 BC). This means that the next orbit is not due for another 1,400 years from now.

Are there any human traditions that have a record of a “travelling planet”? No, there are not. Chinese records, Egyptian records, Celtic traditions, Native American traditions, Aboriginal traditions, Inuit traditions, Eskimo traditions…not one of them tell of a planet that travels in and out of our solar system. Is there an ancient Earth people who speak of a planet called Nibiru? Yes, there is. This is the ancient Assyrian Empire centered around the ancient city of Babylon. Except, as far as the ancient Assyrians are concerned, the name Nibiru was their name for the planet Jupiter in our own solar system although the Assyrians possibly spelled it “Neberu”, meaning “The Ferry”.

However, the fear-mongering that has been going on over the past few years, especially in recent months, refer to a sun called Nibiru that has entered our solar system, destroying all in its advance. Quite why Nibiru had changed from a single “travelling planet” to a sun with seven orbiting planets has been impossible to track down. There does not appear to be any reason, whatsoever, to explain why Nibiru has changed from a single planet to a whole solar system…at least none that I have been able to find. The only explanation seems to be that a fictitious travelling whole solar system engenders far more fear in people than a fictitious single travelling planet does.

Why Try To Make People Afraid?

For the last 1,700 years, there have been those on the planet who see themselves as an “elite”. In order to control the population and to make them believe what this elite wants them to believe, the elite have found that, by far, the best way is to make people afraid. By creating situations of fear, especially the fear of things that do not exist, the elite have created a society that is made up of individuals that are extremely gullible and can be forced to act in ways which go against their intrinsic nature. There are many, many examples of this behavior throughout human history, both in the past and in the present.

Chris Thomas: 21st of December 2012

Posted on Updated on

A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files

Introduction

First of all, I have to say that I am not an expert on the Mayan Calendar. I am aware of the “epochs” and “rounds” of the Calendar but, not the workings of the “tuns” and “bactuns” that make the Calendar work. Having said that, the only date within the Mayan Calendar that seems to have captured everyone’s imagination, and concern, is that of the 21st of December 2012 (21/12/12 or 12/21/12 depending on which country you live in).

The Mayan Calendar is not the only ancient calendar that exists on the planet. The ancient Egyptians had their own calendar form but, this is largely lost to us as academics and “pyramidiots”, sorry Egyptologists, have kept it from non-specialist eyes. However, the Egyptian Calendar also notes a major shift in our existence towards the end of 2012. The Chinese also have their own calendar system going back at least 5,000 years. Their calendar is known in the west but, has been reduced to a fortune-telling tool – the I Ching. The I Ching also foretells of major changes at the end of 2012. There are a number of other ancient calendar systems from around the world but, most have been lost or have been deliberately destroyed to hide their contents away from the westernised world.

As far as the Akashic is concerned, the most important date occurred at the end of 2011. This was the completion of The Human Plan, which has been in operation for 7,000 years.

Background

Our solar system is unique in that it is the only place within our Universe where life exists at a level of energy compaction we call “physical”. In all other parts of our Universe, life exists at energy levels that are considered “non-physical” or “semi-physical”. I am not going to describe those states of being here as they are fully covered by my books and previous essays. Virtually all of the souls that exist in human form have originated from the non-physical or semi-physical regions of our Universe. In other words, their “soul origins” are not of this solar system but, have chosen to come to Earth to experience what it is to be physical.

There are souls whose soul origin is Earth but, they are outside of the scope of this essay.

Originally, every planet in our solar system supported physical life as well as a version of the life-forms we call human. 3.6 million years ago, this situation changed and the only planet within our solar system that continued to support life since then has been our Earth.

Life has continued on one of Jupiter’s moons but, that is outside of the scope of this essay.

The primary purpose of our solar system is to explore the possibility of developing and sustaining a form of life that is capable of containing the whole of a soul within it. On Earth, this life-form we know [is] Human Beings. Please note the capitol [sic] letters. Again, I am not going into the complexities of Human existence in this essay as that history is detailed in my books and previous essays.

The full state of being Human we achieved on Atlantis but, for various reasons, we destroyed that continent 65,000 years ago. Following the destruction, we returned to Earth 25,000 years ago and started again. At that time we were also a full Human, the whole of the soul within the physical body but, we began to lose our “higher” faculties. […] so, we developed a strategy for how we could explore the possibilities and potential that Earth presented and, also to find a way to achieve full Human status again. Essentially, the loss of our higher faculties amounted to a loss of some elements of the soul from the body. The strategy we developed was designed to help us find a way of re-merging the whole of the soul back into the physical.

This strategy we named “The Human Plan” and we began working with it 7,000 years ago.

The Human Plan

The definition of a Human Being is a “physical” being that contains the whole of the soul. By the time we put The Human Plan into operation, our souls were divided into two: the “physical self” and the “higher self”. This divided soul state meant that the Earth considered us to be “sub-human”. That is human with a small “h”. The Human Plan was very simple:
We would live a series of lifetimes experiencing all that there is to experience by being in a physical body living on a physical planet and, collectively, we would pool our gained knowledge until we found a way of returning the whole of the soul back into the body…become Human again. In order to achieve this, the Earth’s consciousness gave us a time limit of 7,000 years. That 7,000 year period finished on the 29th of October 2011.

At the same time as we set The Human Plan into action, all of the ancient calendar systems were begun. Given that most of these ancient calendars have been lost to us, in one way or another, the only one that remains is the Mayan Calendar.

The Mayan Calendar

The Mayan Calendar was actually begun 7,000 years ago but, it spans a time-frame of roughly 26,000 years. The basis of Mayan traditions is connected with the phases of development that our solar system underwent. Each stage required differing energy potentials and these potentials were supplied by our sun. Therefore, the Mayan Calendar records sun cycles and, according to Mayan traditions, we are approaching the end of the “5th Sun”. This means that we are leaving the current phase of energy requirements, supplied by our sun and, are about to enter into a new phase of development which requires a different combination of energy frequencies…a “6th Sun”.

In comparison with The Human Plan, the Mayan Calendar appears to be out of sync. The Human Plan came to its completion at the end of 2011 (according to the Akashic), whilst the Calendar comes to its completion on the 21st of December 2012. To understand this, we need to look at the Calendar as a whole. Again, I must state that I am no expert on the intricacies of the Calendar with only a basic understanding of its cycles. I am sure that there are many people reading this essay who have greater knowledge of the full workings of the Calendar, so, I apologise in advance if I have some of the detail wrong. My intention is to show some of the basic workings and put it into context within The Human Plan in relation to the 21st December.

We are used to using calendars in our daily lives as a means of counting off the days from the start of the year or of counting the days until an event is due to occur. The Mayan Calendar is different. It does count off the number of days but, it also contains predictive elements, in that it predicts cycles and major events known as “Epochs”. When the Calendar is worked backwards, it can be used to go backwards for many thousands, if not millions, of years and it has been shown to predict some events, in that those events occur at the end of the cycles built into the Calendar. These ends of cycles, or the markers of major events, are even more pronounced when the cycle marks the end of an Epoch.
