I report this because it’s yet another one of the stories swimming in the web out there. But my sense of the Now holds it in a place of not very likely appearance….

Dr Paul LaViolette is the measured counterpart to Patrick Geryl, whose
interview we have released simultaneously. A brilliant and maverick
astrophysicist, Paul is best known for his research into a new theory of
matter he calls Subquantum Kinetics – based on systems theory, which he
studied for his PhD thesis – and for his carefully argued hypothesis,
first formulated in 1983, that our periodically emits
devastating waves he termed superwaves.

Galactic superwaves are
intense cosmic ray particle bombardments that originate from the center
of our Galaxy, and that last for periods of up to a few thousand years.
Paul explains that astronomical and geological evidence indicates that
the last major superwave impacted our solar system around 12,000 to
16,000 years ago, and produced abrupt changes of the Earth’s climate.

The
land animal extinction episode which occurred during this interval was
the worst in several million years, and Paul estimates that
approximately one or two superwaves strong enough to trigger an ice age
are presently on their way to us from their birthplace at the galactic
core… 23,000 light years away. Paul states that there is a real chance
that one such event could arrive within the next few decades.
Importantly – because they travel at the speed of light – we would not
see them coming.

Paul explains that less intense superwaves,
which recur with considerable frequency, could also pose a threat. He
cites evidence that the galactic center has erupted as many as ten times
in the last 2,000 years, the most recent event occurring about 700
years ago. While these low intensity events could have passed unnoticed
in earlier centuries, today they could be extremely hazardous. The EMP
[electromagnetic pulse] accompanying such a superwave could knock out
electrical power grids and communication networks on a global scale.
Consequently, argues Paul, study of this phenomenon deserves a very high
priority, and he founded The Starburst Foundation to do this.

Of
some considerable interest is the testimony from our insider source
Jake Simpson, who told us in October 2008 that there was a ‘wave’ coming
– but that it would not arrive here for quite a few years: possibly
around 2017-2020. When asked how he knew, his response was that highly
advanced and classified superluminal [faster-then-light] craft had been
out to "take a look", and had then returned to report back with the
information. Jake told us that the effect could either be cataclysmic,
or "just a puff of wind"… and that exactly what would happen, and
when, was simply not known.

Of interest also is the anonymous
testimony from a senior Electrical Engineer, whose wife contacted us in
April 2009 to report an anticipated major breakdown of national power
supplies a few years from now. These reports – and others (such as that
from Dan Sherman) – all weave together to form an unsettling picture.
While we have said separately that we do not agree with Patrick Geryl’s
conclusions, it does seem that the Earth, and the human race, may
possibly be in for a bit of a rough ride… from a number of different
causes.
