Terrific! Obama Administration and Russia have combined effort in coming up with a potentially peaceful solution with respect to Syria–instead of military air strikes, they’re going to have  all of the chemical arsenals of Syria to be handed over to international control. President Obama is scheduled to address the nation on Tuesday night, Sep. 10, 2013…more details then….another day of peace is another day in the sun….we earthlings are evolving for the better! This is a wonderfully optimistic and hopeful outlook for the future of human kind.

————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–

On this hopeful and optimistic note, I’d like to share another presentation of hope and optimism for the future.  This is a talk that took place at the World Future Society 2013 conference at Chicago, IL, in July of 2013, given by John Smart, a futurist and scholar of accelerating change. Mr. Smart is founder and president of the Acceleration Studies Foundation, an organization that does “outreach, education, research, and advocacy with respect to issues of accelerating change.” He is also running FERN (Foresight Education & Research Network) and Global Foresight (A Community Working to Advance Global Foresight Culture).

Smart is the principal advocate of the concept of “STEM compression,” (formerly “MEST compression“) the idea that the most (ostensibly) complex of the universe’s extant systems at any time (galaxies, stars, habitable planets, living systems, and now technological systems) use progressively less space, time, energy and matter (“STEM”) to create the next level of complexity in their evolutionary development (www.accelerationwatch.com/mest.html). A similar perspective is found in Buckminster Fuller’s writings on ephemeralization.

I invite you all to this energized presentation on 10 areas of technology that John Smart summarized as the Possible-Probable-Preferrable areas of technology waiting for our exploration in the future. For his presentation slides, please click on: www.accelerating.org/slides . In the video presentation below, we also get to see recommendations on multiple books  (such as: The Art of The Long View by Peter Schwartz, Factor Five by Ernst von Weizsacker, A Guide to Open Innovation and Crowd Sourcing by multiple contributors, Predictive Analyticsby Eric Siegel, etc., available at www.amazon.com.) resulting from in-depth research and insight. Enjoy!


We have already seen much change or development in solar energy. I believe in the years to come, our world will also realize even more of its accelerated exponential change with regard to solar energy.

Dear Friends & Readers,

The video clip/link  from May 2, 2012, by John Wadsworth was very succinct in his explanation of what Venus Transit represents, its harmony/order/symmetry, so I want to make sure that you did not miss this clip.  

John explained  why this will be such a rare and extraordinary event that will occur on June 5, 2012, otherwise known as the Venus Transit (Transit of Venus across the face of the sun).  It only occurs in 120 year interval and when it does occur, it’d occur twice in an eight year period.   It occurred in June of 2004,  this year in June 2012, and will not occur again until 2132.  So, I imagine most of us who are/will be able to observe this event in 2012 will never see it again in our life time.  John continues on to present the reason why Venus Transit is associated with symbol of peace/harmony/love/order/proportionality: Venus returns, after an eight-year cycle, to the same point/place in the sky or relationship to the sun as eight years prior.  During the eight-year cycle, Venus makes ten conjunctions with the sun (five when Venus is on the other side of the sun and five when Venus is on this side of the sun) .  During Venus Transit, when she is actually passing in front of the sun, we see the Venus because she is in alignment with the sun on this side of the earth.  If the ten conjunctions are plotted  in terms of where Venus is in the zodiac and how far Venus is from the earth, one sees a perfect five-pointed star/pentagram. Rather, two pentagrams (with five-pointed star made by the superior conjunction or other side of the sun and a five-pointed star made by the inferior conjunction on this side of the sun). Henceforth, the relationship between Venus and pentagram.  Furthermore, if the movement of Venus is plotted out based on its distance from the earth and its position in the zodiac during the eight-year cycle, one sees the result of a perfect five-petal rose.  What is even more remarkable is that Venus creates this five-petal rose by drawing hearts;whenever she/Venus comes into the conjunction where it is close to the earth, it makes these retrograde loops which helps to form the five-petal rose.  Therefore, one sees the HEART-ROSE-  PENTAGRAM as the symbols  for Venus.  The fact that this poetic dance of symmetry and order is only revealed to us due to the existence of computer generated matrix and yet Venus had already been historically associated with these symbols of heart, rose, and pentagram…simply remarkable !  Furthermore, there is the synchronicity of Venus with the Golden Ratio or Golden Mean (the only way to divide a line so that the whole and parts are related to each other in the same way) otherwise known as Phi or 1.61803398874989484…. (with never recurring number to infinity….).  Phi is intricately related to number 5 because pentagram is the only completely Golden Shape.  The pentagram is the only figure made up entirely of golden ratios-all of its sides are “golden” to the other.  Golden mean is also related closely to the Fibonacci numbers (where one adds the total to the previous number in the sequence in order to obtain the next number in the sequence).  As the Fibonacci series continues/increases, it approximates/approaches the Golden Mean.  Therefore, the Golden Mean and Fibonacci sequence are both Venusian phenomenon.  Fibonacci sequence describes the way that nature grows, seen in plant growth, spiral of shells, or spiral of galaxies…perfectly in line with the Venusian phenomenon of Golden Mean.  So this is the beautiful dance of proportion between Venus year and Earth year or between Venus day and Earth day, all summed up by the ratio of Golden Mean.  Nature and our universe are in perfect harmony!   It is amazing that this Golden ratio also appeared in ancient architectures and arts, bringing us in our relationship with nature.  Perhaps Venus is a gift to us, teaching us how to be in harmony with our nature.  Let’s value this rare opportunity of gift of harmony/order/love/symmetry on this June 5th/6th of 2012.  I wish you all peace, love, and harmony…I wish you all find moments to look for Fibonacci  sequence and Golden Mean…for glimpse of the beauty and order of Nature….

Transit of Venus-2012-The Year of Great Opportunity For Peace, Harmony and Symmetry-June 5/6, 2012

Dear Friends and Readers,

I’ve received comments/emails from both ends of the spectrum, from optimism to pessimism, regarding  our relation to Iran during 2012.

In addition to the possible solution that came to me through inspiration of The Aurora clip in my April 27, 2012 post, I’d like to share a piece of wonderful information hopefully will jolt us all to opt for the optimistic end during this year.  I am referring to a very special and rare event that will take place on June 5th/6th of 2012, the Transit of Venus.  It is among the rarest of predictable astronomical phenomena, occurring in a pattern that repeats every 243 years, with pairs of transits eights years apart ( a transit of Venus took place on June 8, 2004 and the next will be on June 5th/6th, 2012) separated by long gaps as much as 121.5 years and as little as 105.5 years apart.  Such periodicity is a reflection of  the fact that the orbital periods of Earth and Venus are close to 8:13 and 243:395 commensurabilities (property of two orbiting objects in rational proportion).  The previous pair of transits were in December 1874 and December 1881.  After 2012, the next transits of Venus will be in December 2117 and December 2125.  A transit of Venus across the sun takes place when the planet Venus passes directly between the Sun and the Earth, becoming visible against (obscuring a small portion of ) the solar disk.  During transit, Venus can be seen from Earth as a small black disk moving across the face of the Sun.

The duration of such transits is usually measured in hours.  The transit of 2004 lasted six hours. A transit is similar to a solar eclipse by the Moon.  While the diameter of Venus is almost four times that of the Moon, Venus appears smaller, and travels more slowly across the face of the Sun, because it is much farther away from the Earth.

Allow me to present the musical version/Waltz from “Sleeping Beauty” of the Millenium Philharmonic Orchestra version of this transit, I trust you will enjoy, below:

A transit of Venus can be safely observed by taking the same precautions used when observing the partial phases of a solar eclipse (seen in the above video clip). Staring at the brilliant disk of the sun with unprotected eye can quickly cause serious and often permanent eye damage.  So be careful on June 5th/6th of 2012.

We also have the opportunity here of participating with the energy of the Venus while this transit is taking place, with the qualities of harmony, love, peace, order, and proportion in our consciousness.  The presentation of its periodicity and conjunctions in such harmony, order, and proportion may be seen and explained in the video of this link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HF_qr3yN3xo

 

I believe the year 2012 may possess the fantastically rare opportunity for such tremendous peace and harmony from the transit of Venus…that as long as we choose to see and seize it…there may still be Peace in Mideast and Peace on Earth….
