Observe The New

"The power of the centralised state ultimately depended on the agricultural surplus of the fertile soils of the Nile flood-plain (one role of the pharaoh was to intercede with the gods to control the Nile innundations vital to Egyptian agriculture). In the 22nd century BC, a temporary shift in climate reduced the level of these innundations, causing widespread famine, which eroded the religious authority of the pharaohs and, more practically, undermined the economic and military power of the regime." - The First Intermediate Period, 2200-2040BC

Is something strange happening to the weather? Is the local weather in your area changing in such a way that you notice the change? Or are you one of the people who watch what is even when things appear 'normal'?

I was so focused on my studies of fungi, that I forgot to look up and consider the tropical storm crossing the Gulf and hitting Oman. That is because, I knew as a child this would happen and that we are, quite naturally, living in times of change. It is not a question of WHAT is happening around us, but it is a question of HOW we observe what is.

If we apply the long-count mind to our observations, then some of us may remember that these kinds of changes have happened before and that they are part of a longer cycle of transformation and change. Unfortunately, many people currently on planet earth use the short pulse interval static frequency to perceive their daily world.

The short pulse interval static frequency is not aware of the long-count. It does not remember the cycles outside of its short term experiences. The short-count interval pulse also has a tendancy to panic. It panics because it pulses in small sequences and loses sight of the visible frequencies either side of the short pulse spectrum.

The visible frequencies either side of the short pulse sequence are the actual long-count cycle of the earth, the sun, the planets and the galaxies. The long count observation of these cosmic cycles is carried out by the soul. In that respect we have been there before.

When observing changes in the cycles of the sun and the earth, the long-count frequency is the more accurate frequency for these observations. To shift out of the short pulse interval and into the larger visible spectrum one simply observes what is. Rational thought is the monkey of the short pulse awareness, and reactions are often exaggerated. Awareness is the observer of what is and these observations often uncover lost diamonds of truth and long forgotten treasures.

The question is not so much one of understanding the climate theories we see or form, but how we observe the actual event of the now. In other words, am I a part of this phenomenon or am I seperate from this phenomenon? Is it something 'happening' to me? Or am I part of what is happening? Those two approaches manifest two totally different experiences of what climate change actually is.

Do we resist what is, or do we go with the flow? Do we act from intelligence? Or do we react out of fear? The actual systems breakdown is not the planet earth. The systems breakdown is within the human being who has forgotten that they are a part of the earth cycles. The storm that brings misery to local inhabitants may be the process of change that creates a rich and beautiful sanctuary for their grandchildren's children.

In the beginning, the earth in a fitful sleep, (100000 BC) , stirring in a night sweat every five thousand years. Last stands of (30000 BC) Homo erectus and Neanderthal. The end of the Ice Age; (13000 BC) Slowly the great ice sheets melt away, from Chicago and Boston and Seattle and London, under the influence of an "altithermal" climate several degrees warmer than today. The sea level, which has remained some 350 feet below its present level for 100,000 years, begins to rise at a rate of ten feet a century.

Then, 12000 years before present, when the sea level had reached 100 feet below present level, something happened to interrupt the process; temperatures plunged 7 degrees, the sea level hesitated. This was the beginning of the Younger Dryas, (10500 BC) a millenium in which the circulation system of the North Atlantic went into a kind of planetary fibrillation, the African monsoons migrated southward, drying the desert. After a millenium, the end of the Younger Dryas (9500 BC) came about almost as quickly as it had begun, warmth returned to the North, and water to the deserts of the Near East. Again about 6000 BC, another abrupt cooling in Greenland, (6200 BC) this a short lived cycle, then a warming for two thousand years the sun shining, a great green spring in the northern lands, the wolves retreating, as the planet entered the the mid Holocene altithermal.
