(Tacoma, WA)  Say, here’s a scary one to ponder:  Mega quake coming’?

imageGeorge,

This morning I was awaken by a loud, deep, rumble that I initially thought was thunder, but as it persisted and stayed a consistent rumble to the point that the windows started rattling I realized it was not thunder.  I then began to wonder what else could it be? A low flying jet was a possibility but I could not see anything in the sky. An earthquake? I’ve not heard anything from earthquake reporting services. 

I have no idea what this noise was.  I have asked several people if they heard the same noise.  6 out of 8 people I asked did hear it and wondered the same thing….what the heck was it.  I’ve ask people as far as 2 hours south of my location and 1 hour north and they heard the same sound at approximately 5:34am this morning, 6/25.  Several reported their dogs and cats freaked out during the sound which lasted about 30-40 seconds.

George, would you help investigate or would you know what this very strange sound was… never heard anything like it in my 46 years.   Very  curious if it was heard in other states and parts of the nation.

John, this is damn interesting stuff because around the “soft edges” of consciousness the past several weeks, the notion of “earthquake” has been rattling around in my head.

Nothing precise, and just below the level of consciousness, I have picked up little dribs and drabs hinting in that direction.

Example 1:  When we were flying over the Cascades on Tuesday, while Elaine was busy snapping pictures, there were some odd lenticular clouds over the eastern slopes, over around Cle Elum, WA.  “Nothing to it, dear…” 

Are earthquake clouds real?  Wikipedia:

Earthquake clouds are clouds claimed to be signs of imminent earthquakes. They have been described in antiquity: In chapter 32 of his work Brihat Samhita, Indian scholar Varahamihira (505–587) discussed a number of signs warning of earthquakes, including extraordinary clouds occurring a week before the earthquake.[1] In modern times, a few scientists claim to have observed clouds associated with a seismic event, sometimes more than 50 days in advance of the earthquake. Some have even claimed to accurately predict earthquake occurrences by observing clouds.[2] However, these claims have very little support in the scientific community.

Nevertheless, when “science” dismisses something that can be documented 1,500 years ago – and likely was discovered long before that, well, my money is on history for looking for a weak association that we (*Reductionist influenced) moderns don’t fully appreciate.

Example 2:  When I took my first nap in the house we’re staying in, the basement and former retail space of a historical home in Tacoma, I had this weird passing thought in my head.  (Anmd this is weird, even for me…)  “We are here in the basement of a turn-of-the-century Victorian.  If there was a quake, how much crap would come falling down on us?”

Little thing, but a future-decision driver.  When our one week is done here, we will be moving to a single story home nearby (thanks to www.airbnb.com).  Could we have been here for another week?  Sure.

But the same feeling and thought crossed my mind in western Montana, as well.

Which is too much about us, but I’m circling back now:  There have been a large number of “trumpet sounds” reported around the whole world lately.

Try this one from Youtube as a “starter.”

Another vid, this one over here, has more definition to the sound…and yes, it is trumpet-like.

The reason I mention both of these things is that there has been a major uptick in reports.  Not so much as to demand the scientific community respond, but when you listen to the second video in particular, you have to wonder whether this is the orchestra warming up to the part in Revelations about trumpets.

We read about them starting in Revelation 8.6, but things begin to pick up momentum by 8.7:

And the seven angels who had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound them. 7The first sounded, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. 8The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood,…”

I have mentioned several times that around the time of Fukushima and Offshore Horizon/Gulf of Mexico/Corexit, is when we (coincidentally?) begin to see the references popping up to the trumpet noises.

In Revelations 8.8 we see this:

The first sounded, and there came hail and fire, mixed with blood, and they were thrown to the earth; and a third of the earth was burned up, and a third of the trees were burned up, and all the green grass was burned up. 8The second angel sounded, and something like a great mountain burning with fire was thrown into the sea; and a third of the sea became blood, 9and a third of the creatures which were in the sea and had life, died; and a third of the ships were destroyed.…

About here, we start to divide people up into camps:  Some people will be able to generalize off what is in the Bible, and some people won’t.

Those that are capable of generalizing will look at the “mountain burning with fire” being cast into the sea” as eerily reminiscent of events around Fukushima.

The good (and bad) thing about scripture is that while there are many references to future events, it is the sequencing that matters.  So, over in 8.9 we can start looking for some space-based visual event in orders to fulfill this:

“The third angel sounded, and a great star fell from heaven, burning like a torch, and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the springs of waters.…11The name of the star is called Wormwood; and a third of the waters became wormwood, and many men died from the waters, because they were made bitter.…

There is a long discussion at Wikipedia of the various “interpretations” of just what Wormwood means, but I am something of a scientific literalist.  Such that in order to qualify as a “hit” in terms of predictive accuracy, the Biblical playing of events must indeed be something “falling to earth” and be of a composition such that where it falls on drinking water supplies, it will meet the “poisonous” test.

There are only a few reasons to believe in the literalist view, including Texaco using the Burning Bush part of the Bible and location natural gas seeps in that specific area.  This was in the mid 50’s, by the way.  The point is that a literalist interpretation worked well in one documented case.

But, the main problem is in “fit” of the data.

Having dinked around with the future a good bit (as continues with projects like www.nostracodeus.com ) the problem is that futuring is a statistical nightmare.

You can get the right specifics of an event or situation right, but timing and the surrounding liturgy also must fit.  So Wormwood showing up before the mountain of fire poisoning just wouldn’t do.

On the other hand, the much debated topic is whether Fukushima has been large enough to “fit” and some argue the answer is yet, so we’re just waiting for the next Trumpet blasts and then we should be looking up.

Alternative Explanations Abound

I’m not hawking religion at you, but it is one place where we find references to odd noises that demands consideration.

Yet there are others, as well.

For example, the Earth this past week has been really bombarded by electrical energy from the Sun.  I don’t know if anyone has done this in a lab, yet, but think about how electrostatic speakers work.

If we consider the changes in electrical charge hitting the Earth from space as an excitation, then it is possible this could explain everything.

The major problem with the electrostatic concept is that the report from John was at night, and so unless this is some effect that would provide for either a front-side sound AND a back-side sound, then this possibility begins to look pretty dubious.

Another possibility (because many of the reported trumpet sounds do sound like a “blown bottle:” noise, like we used to make last week (as kids, right_) so it is possible that a high wind (jet stream eddy) over just the right resonant air mass could create such a sound.

Where this theory runs into trouble is with vertical containment.  The “bottle” has to have sides that are firm enough to contain enough energy to resonate.  Although it is possible that such an event in a smaller area (high altitude tornado, visualization cued, please) then the sound dispersion would be under it, and thus accommodative of the the audible boundaries John noted.

Not to be overlooked are Project Blue Beam as well as massive underground tunnel boring as part of a massive underground transportation system are being secretly built for the PowersThatBe….  You can see how many possibilities are out there, when you open your head up to them.

Toss in magma movement, slow-motion quakes, and other such low but still in the running concepts and we just can’t give you an answer.  But an endless supply of ideas to sift through?

Oh, yeah, got that part covered..

Off to snooze after a few headlines…

Have a great weekend, write when you break-even, and bring along your friends next week…
