PROLOGUE: THE MYSTERY IS REVEALED!
PROLOGUE: THE MYSTERY IS REVEALED!On September 11, 2001, the Earth was rocked by a meticulously plannedstrike at the financial and military heart of the world’s last superpower, asordinary passenger airliners turned into weapons of mass destruction,reducing the twin towers of the World Trade Center to a pile of rubble andexploding one wing of the Pentagon. Prior to this event it was quite commonfor the general public to proclaim that everything was “normal” and ignoremany obvious signposts that humanity, the Earth and solar system at largewere all undergoing tremendous, unprecedented change, which includes thefollowing ever-increasing trends:• A 410-percent increase in the overall number of natural catastrophes onEarth between 1963 and 1993 (Dmitriev 1997)• A 400-percent increase in the number of quakes on Earth (over 2.5 on theRichter scale) since 1973 (Mandeville 1998)• A 500-percent increase in Earth’s volcanic activity between 1875 and 1993(Mandeville 2000)• 9 out of the 21 most severe earthquakes from 856-1999 AD occurred in the20th century (Russian National Earthquake Information Center, 1999)• A 230-percent increase in the strength of the Sun’s magnetic field since1901 (Lockwood, 1998)• A 300-percent increase in the amount of “severe” solar activity than whatwas formally predicted for the year 1997 alone (NASA 1998)• 400-percent or higher increases in the speed that solar particle emissionsare capable of traveling through the energy of interplanetary space (NASA1997-2001)• Recent magnetic pole shifts of Uranus and Neptune, as Voyager 2 observedtheir magnetic axes being significantly offset from their rotational axes(Dmitriev 1997)• Visible brightness increases now being detected on Saturn (Dmitriev 1997)• 200-percent increase in the intensity of Jupiter’s magnetic field from 1992-97 (Dmitriev 1997)• 200-percent increase in the known density of Mars’ atmosphere encounteredby the Mars Surveyor satellite in 1997 (NASA 1997)• Significant melting of Martian polar icecaps in just one year, clearly seen insatellite photography (NASA 2001)• Significant physical, chemical and optical changes on Venus, including asharp decrease in sulfur-containing gases in its atmosphere and increasingbrightness (Dmitriev 1997)If we remember that the Sun contains fully 99.86% of the mass in the SolarSystem, then we can easily see that it wields the strongest thermal,gravitational and electromagnetic influence. In this book we will identify aclear physical mechanism that is causing our Sun to experience remarkablechanges. These significant energetic changes in the Sun are then radiatedoutwardly via the “Solar Wind,” dramatically increasing the charge andpermeability of interplanetary space, causing charged particles to travel morequickly much as a droplet of water dashes around on a sizzling hot pan. Theelectromagnetic fields of the planets then absorb this increased energy flux,producing anomalous changes including internal heating, increases inearthquakes, volcanism and other natural catastrophes, increases in
