Nostradamus: Prophet of Hope

By VICTORIA LEPAGE— The jury is still out on the millennial prophecies of Michel Nostradamus, the French master physician, astrologer and Kabbalist of the sixteenth century. Many regard him as the greatest prophet in Western history, while others find his predictions, especially those concerned with our own era around the second millennium, irrelevant or simply too deep or too equivocal to interpret successfully. Did he predict war or peace for our time? Did he foresee a coming Utopia or a … [Read more...]

Aliens, Predictions & the Secret School: Decoding the Work of Whitley Strieber

By LOUIS PROUD— Anyone who knows anything about the subject of UFOs and alien abduction would have heard of Louis Whitley Strieber, the successful horror novelist, who, in 1987, published a book called Communion which still stands as one of the most terrifying, factual and powerful accounts of alien abduction ever written. But far from being just an abductee and author, Strieber is also something of an undeclared mystic and prophet. It seems he has much to say about humanity’s spiritual, … [Read more...]

Zecharia Sitchin & the End of Days

By LESLEY CROSSINGHAM— Sometimes it is difficult not to be cynical about the ‘apocalypse-de-jour’ that tends to sweep through our world every few years. Who can forget the Y2K fever that produced some rather amusing TV commercials in late 1999? Whilst this can be entertaining there is a more serious side to the legendary ‘End of Days’. The belief that we are all headed towards some kind of apocalypse or final battle between good and evil is a widely held view, not only by fundamentalist … [Read more...]

Extreme Weather & Natural Disasters: How Do We Prepare?

By MARIE JONES — For those patiently, or not so patiently, waiting on the explosive year of 2012, and the possible end of the world eluded to in Mayan mythology, the events of the last several months across the globe may have felt like a precursor to the Apocalypse itself. Even for those who have never heard of, or just simply don’t believe in, the Mayan long count calendar end date of December 21, 2012 and the prophesised catastrophes that will occur on or right before then, the world … [Read more...]

Waiting for the End of the World: René Guénon and the Kali Yuga

By RICHARD SMOLEY — Currently the fear – or hope – of the closing of the age pervades the air like a thick vapour. Sometimes this end is envisaged as an environmental calamity, sometimes as the second coming of Christ, sometimes as the return of the space brothers to claim their own. Figures including Jose Argüelles, the prophet of the 1987 Harmonic Convergence; Terence McKenna, the late pope of psychedelia; and the channelled entity known as Kryon have fastened onto 2012 as the turning … [Read more...]

Crop Circles: Messages From the Future?

By FREDDY SILVA — Linear time is a frustrating thing. At least to those who inhabit the invisible universe: the souls or spirits. We humans fret about time, or lack of it, or the speeding up of, or what will happen in time, or in the future, or… you get the picture. Meanwhile, in the spirit world, they fret about what a fret we make over something that does not exist outside our own physical reality; all that happens happens in the now, and a number of probable futures are at play and we knew … [Read more...]

Visions of the Future – Sim Card Man

By NIGEL KERNER — Isaac Newton once said that he felt “the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered” before him.1 Dr. Michio Kaku, a pioneer of string theory, is a little less modest in his estimation of our current knowledge. In a series of TV programmes entitled ‘Visions of the Future’, he confidently states that, “The great ocean of truth is no longer undiscovered. We have unlocked the secrets of matter – the atom; we have unravelled the molecule of life – DNA; and we have created a form … [Read more...]

2012: A Time Odyssey

By SHARRON ROSE — Many experts, scientists, artists and philosophers have reached the conclusion that the human experience is reaching some kind of ultimate climax. Each person who studies this phenomenon calls this coming event by a different name, or uses different terms to describe it, but essentially they are all speaking of the same event. José Argüelles says that it is the Climax of Matter, Jean Houston calls it Jump Time, and Ray Kurzweil calls it the approaching singularity. What is … [Read more...]

The I Ching, The Most Modern Ancient Wisdom Classic

By REG LITTLE — In a changing and unpredictable world, no classical text is more rewarding, or more challenging, than the ancient Chinese I Ching or Book of Changes. This classic presents itself as a book of divination and invites dismissal on such grounds amongst educated Western circles, including even the great British sinologist and advocate of Chinese science and technology Joseph Needham. It is, however, the most modern of practical handbooks, being a remarkably wise and profound guide … [Read more...]
