Esoteric researcher Drunvalo Melchizedek discussed the great Earth activations fueling 2012, the magnetic pole shift that is currently affecting humans around the world, and new ways in which humans will begin to perceive and communicate in the world. A magnetic pole shift can precede a catastrophic physical pole shift, and there is some evidence there was one 26,000 years ago, and again 13,000 years ago, which would mean we are due for another one, he said. According to Melchizedek, when a physical pole shift occurred over a 14-day period during the time of Atlantis, the people went crazy and lost their memory, and we had to start all over again.
In Chichen Itza in the Yucatan on 12/21/12, the calendar end date for a Mayan cycle, the Earth, the sun, and the center of our galaxy will align in an absolutely straight line, “and that hasn’t happened for almost 26,000 years,” he said. The Mayans will celebrate on December 22nd at the start of their new cycle, though there is a doomsday aspect to their prophecy, he continued. While they believe a massive cataclysmic event is coming, the Mayans have said that human consciousness will escape to a higher dimensional level on Earth, and experience a kind of ascension, he recounted.
He cited the significance of the human heart in Mayan and ancient cultures. Current research such as at HeartMath also points toward the intelligence of the heart, he noted, adding that inside the heart, small areas are generating toroidal fields that extend 8-10 feet out beyond the body. Regarding crop circles, Russian researchers decoded complex mathematics shown in authentic formations, and found a warning that Earth would suffer eight catastrophes in a row, and we can only survive the first one, Melchizedek reported, noting that the ancient Mayans reached a similar conclusion.
Drunvalo Melchizedek is the author of four books including The Ancient Secrets of the Flower of Life, Volumes I and II, Living in the Heart and Serpent of Light.
Drunvalo also founded the Flower of Life Workshops with over 300 trained and certified facilitators teaching in over sixty countries. He is consultant for the international Internet magazine, Spirit of Ma’at, with over 1 million viewers each year. Drunvalo is a world traveler and has given workshops, seminars and lectures on sacred geometry, human energy fields, spirituality, meditation and living in the heart in 45 countries. His meditation with the angels and his work with prana and energy healing has helped tens of thousands of people.
The cataclysmic pole shift hypothesis suggests that there have been geologically rapid shifts in the relative positions of the modern-day geographic locations of the poles and the axis of rotation of the Earth, creating calamities such as floods and tectonic events.
There is evidence of precession and changes in axial tilt, but this change is on much longer time-scales and does not involve relative motion of the spin axis with respect to the planet. However, in what is known as true polar wander, the solid Earth can rotate with respect to a fixed spin axis. Research shows that during the last 200,000,000 years a total true polar wander of some 30° has occurred, but that no super-rapid shifts in the Earth’s pole were found during this period. A characteristic rate of true polar wander is 1° per million years or less. Between approximately 790 and 810 million years ago, when the supercontinent Rodinia existed, two geologically-rapid phases of true polar wander may have occurred. In each of these, the magnetic poles of the Earth shifted by ~155°
Various existential risks have the potential to destroy, or drastically restrict, human civilization; could cause human extinction; or even cause the end of Earth. Severe events could cause the extinction of all life on the planet Earth, the destruction of the planet Earth, the annihilation of the solar system, to the annihilation of our galaxy or even the entire universe. Existential risks are distinguished from other forms of risk both by their scope, affecting all of humanity, and severity; destroying or irreversibly crippling the target.
Natural disasters, such as supervolcanoes and asteroids, may pose existential risks if sufficiently powerful, though man-made events could also threaten the survival of intelligent life on Earth, like catastrophic global warming, nuclear war, or bioterrorism.
Despite the importance of existential risks, it is a difficult subject to study directly since humankind has never been destroyed before; while this does not mean that it will not be in the future, it does make modelling existential risks difficult, due in part to survivorship bias.
While individual threats, such as those posed by nuclear war or climate change, have been intensively studied on their own, the systematic study of existential risks did not begin until 2002
