lighteye - "i've found the answer...
10122 mentioned in the article...
1+1+2+2 = 6
now lets look at the mayan calendar in 2012.
the winter solstice happens when?
21122012 @ 11:11...
add the numbers up...
15 or ?
i found this answer back in june 26, 1999 when i "woke up" =)
6+6 = 12 (unity/union = 1 [one]) the 6's represent me and my twin flame who i was with when i "woke up".

Energy Emanating from Spinning Black Hole
i saw this picture and i thought of the hypershpere photo from banchoff, (david usually uses this photo in his articles), a sphere within a sphere, within a sphere, and so on.

anyone else think this thread should get sticky'd? there's so much great information being submitted here, it would be nice if it could stay near the top.

"Alien" life signs on AA Tauri

alien life signs on aa tauri
by roger highfield, science editor
last updated: 6:01pm gmt 13/03/2008
vast amounts of water and simple organic molecules that are precursors of the building blocks of life have been found in the dust and rubble swirling around a young star similar to our own sun.
the evidence was found by analysing the infra red light sent out by the disk of material that is forming planets around the star aa tauri, some 450 light years away, in a study by nasa's spitzer space telescope.
the discovery comes as a british team reports new evidence of how our own solar system was richer in life's raw materials than previously thought.
the "spectral fingerprints" seen by the space telescope in the cradle of planet formation suggest abundant water and simple organic molecules are present in the inner disk of dust and gas surrounding the very young star which is thought to be similar to our early sun, a common kind scattered throughout our galaxy.
the new observations reveal the chemical precursors of amino amino acids, the building blocks of proteins, up to three times the distance from the sun to our own earth. astronomers believe that this may offer a unique glimpse of the emergence of life in our own solar system, including the possible seeds of early life.

Gamma Ray Burst
on march 19th, telescopes detected the strongest gamma ray burst ever. it was recorded at 7.5 billion years ago, which is before the earth was formed. wow!

it took about 10 minutes of reading to be completley engrossed in the subject. thanks for putting the post up. i have lots of reading to do now...
i came across a book by [please e-mail for author and title]
in chapter one, he writes this: "we have put our faith in scientists and engineers, and it has clearly paid off – except in astronomy (and possibly archeology and geology)."
ha! i love what he adds in parenthesis.

3 Theories That Might Blow Up the Big Bang

3 theories that might blow up the big bang
time may not have a beginning—and it might not exist at all.
by adam frank
for paul steinhardt and neil turok, the big bang ended on a summer day in 1999 in cambridge, england. sitting together at a conference they had organized, called “a school on connecting fundamental physics and cosmology,” the two physicists suddenly hit on the same idea. maybe science was finally ready to tackle the mystery of what made the big bang go bang. and if so, then maybe science could also address one of the deepest questions of all: what came before the big bang?
steinhardt and turok—working closely with a few like-minded colleagues—have now developed these insights into a thorough alternative to the prevailing, genesis-like view of cosmology. according to the big bang theory, the whole universe emerged during a single moment some 13.7 billion years ago. in the competing theory, our universe generates and regenerates itself in an endless cycle of creation. the latest version of the cyclic model even matches key pieces of observational evidence supporting the older view.
this is the most detailed challenge yet to the 40-year-old orthodoxy of the big bang. some researchers go further and envision a type of infinite time that plays out not just in this universe but in a multiverse—a multitude of universes, each with its own laws of physics and its own life story. still others seek to revise the very idea of time, rendering the concept of a “beginning” meaningless.
all of these cosmology heretics agree on one thing: the big bang no longer defines the limit of how far the human mind can explore.

Polaris's Pulsations Pick Up

polaris's pulsations pick up
akira fujiipolaris is important not just because it's the north star. it also happens to be the brightest and nearest cepheid variable star, 430 light-years away. cepheids, a special class of pulsating giants, have provided astronomers with a crucial link in the cosmic distance scale for almost a century. but polaris isn't just any cepheid. it has been changing its period and especially the amplitude of its pulsations.
polaris varies in brightness only slightly, by just a few percent across its 3.97-day cycle. moreover, the pulsations steadily diminished for decades: from 0.12 magnitude per cycle a century ago — almost enough to see by eye — to a mere 0.02 magnitude per cycle in the mid-1990s. astronomers wondered if polaris was about to stop pulsing completely.
apparently not. four years ago edward f. guinan (villanova university) and several colleagues reported that polaris's fluctuations bottomed out in the mid-1990s and had started increasing again, to 0.038 magnitude per cycle in 2004. now an international team of nine astronomers finds the trend continuing. from 2003 to 2007, says the team, polaris's brightness pulsations increased by an additional one-third.

earth's poles long overdue for reversal
by claire thomas
sydney: a reversal of the earth's magnetic poles could happen sooner than we think, according to dutch scientists who report that the planet's magnetic field is becoming gradually less stable.
a reversal could effect everything from navigation and communications equipment to the composition of the atmosphere, say experts.
the report, published today in the u.k. journal nature geoscience, found that reversals have been far more common in the last 200 million years than they were deep in the planet's history.

puny star unleashes deadly flare
18:34 19 may 2008
newscientist.com news service
a small red dwarf star has erupted with the brightest flare ever seen from a normal star other than the sun. if the star hosted planets, the flare could have killed any life that might have existed on the unlucky worlds.
the flare, which lasted 8 hours, was first detected by nasa's wind satellite on the morning of 25 april. the agency's swift satellite detected it less than two minutes later, and traced it to a red dwarf star called ev lacertae, which is just a third as massive as the sun and puts out just 1% or so of its light.
normally, ev lacertae, which lies 16 light years from earth, is far too dim to see without a telescope.
but the flare briefly outshone the star itself, making it temporarily bright enough to have been seen with the naked eye. the flare also temporarily made ev lacertae one of the brightest sources of x-rays in the sky.
