What matters most in the giant cycles that the Brahman's call the Yugas, is that metaphysical sense that we somehow do not have or do not comprehend, or have ceased to understand, or have had genetically removed from us (where are those cosmic coppers when you need them).
Life is eternal; a physical life is a gift of the memory of matter. However deep that is ,it is a realm that the psychics and mediums and the drug addicts and the shamen and the Indigo Children and others seem to have learnt to tap into.
Edgar Cayce, the Sleeping Prophet was amongst these special people who may have passed as a pagan heretic by some religious groups for his rituals which allowed him to enter trances and transcend time. From these self induced waking sleep session Cayce would intuitively tell of things to come. He would talk in his sleep and an associate would record the sessions.
Was Cayce always right in his more than 14000 recorded predictions?
Let's just say he was right often enough to make believers out of most skeptics of a realm beyond the five senses of rationality.
Cayce often mentions the "breaking up of coastlines" or the "sinking and rising" of land masses in his readings.
"Watch New York, Connecticut and the like. Many portions ofA reading such as this latter one is open to interpretation. There can be two ways of looking at the line "This will be much sooner". Is this line pointing forward or backward? If there is a revelation to this prophecy will it be the Great Lakes that will come much sooner or will it be the Carolina, Georgia area that will come sooner?
the east coast will be disturbed, as well as many portions of the west coast, as well as the central portion of the United States. Los Angeles, San Francisco, most of all these will be among those that will be destroyed before New York, or New York City itself, will in the main disappear. This will be another generation though, here; while the southern portions of Carolina, Georgia, these will disappear. This will be much sooner. The waters of the Great Lakes will empty into the Gulf of Mexico."
Nevertheless, the times that Cayce describes seem to be creeping up on humanity. Most of the midwest states along the great Mississipi are swamped by never before seen flooding as i write this. Where is all that water coming from? The great lakes are drying up and the icesheets are melting away yet most of the prophets are telling us that the next great earth change will be through fire.
Cayce was wrong about the dates in some of his predictions, that is certain. The Earth didn't shift in 2001 and the battlefields of 1941 are not yet oceans, and Japan, when i last checked hadn't dissapeared into the sea (turns to CNN just to make sure). Europe didn't change in the twinkling of an eye.
So where is all this calamity that Cayce talks about in his readings?
What is real and evident are the Earthquakes in Japan and China, the tsunamis in the Indian Oceans and the Gulf of Mexico, the record breaking typhoons and hurricanes of this season, the changing behaviour of the Yellowstone volcanic foundation, the disappearance of the bees, and the seperating icesheets of the arctic and antarctic.......ad libitum.
At this point no one needs the Sleeping Prophet to warn us. All that is needed is to look around or touch the intuitive base that Cayce tapped into, and the sense that something just isn't right cannot be denied.
Is this the prelude to a pole shift?
Several Cayce interpreters had put a date of 1998 on that reading. He was wrong about that or maybe the interpreter was wrong on reading the reading.
There are several highly ranked scientific professionals who are breaking away from the mainstream scientific schools that need more emperical data in order to promote such heresy as polar shifts. These reformists are joining ranks with the likes of Cayce and other Prophets many of which point to the Venus transit of 2012 and the end date of the Mayan calendar, 22.214.171.124.0 which is the beginning of a great cycle which again interpreters believe to coincide with the winter solstice of December 21, 2012 which would have been a great spiritual occasion to the mesoamericans if their culture had survived the Spanish conquest and the Christian conversion led by the Franciscan monks.
The evidence is mounting and bringing professionals into the group of believers that there may be more truth to the prophets esp experience. The rational mind meets the mythical mind may be in the making and the architect of time may be redesigning the creation. There are very good arguments that would support polar shift theories.
I imagine that if the day comes when "in the blinking of eye" we experience earth changes beyond the scope of our rational senses then we will have no choice but to know the truth. Prophecy won't matter much on that day. A strong sense of being spiritual and eternal might be more appropriate for such a time.
