Knowing


Ezekiel reports:

“1:4 As I watched, I noticed a windstorm coming from the north – an enormous cloud, with
lightning flashing, such that bright light rimmed it and came from it like glowing amber
from the middle of a fire.

1:5 In the fire were what looked like four living beings. In their appearance they had
human form,”

“1:10 Their faces had this appearance: Each of the four had the face of a man,”

“1:14 The living beings moved backward and forward as quickly as flashes of lightning.”

“1:19 When the living beings moved, the wheels beside them moved; when the living beings
rose up from the ground, the wheels rose up too.”
Ezekiel 1

“3:12 Then a wind lifted me up and I heard a great rumbling sound behind me as the glory
of the Lord rose from its place,

3:13 and the sound of the living beings’ wings brushing against each other, and the sound
of the wheels alongside them, a great rumbling sound.

3:14 A wind lifted me up and carried me away.”
Ezekiel 3

 

Bible prophecy:

“16:8 Then the fourth angel poured out his bowl on the sun, and it was permitted to scorch
people with fire.

16:9 Thus people were scorched by the terrible heat, yet they blasphemed the name of God,
who has ruling authority over these plagues, and they would not repent and give him glory.”
Revelation 16

 

“24:37 For just like the days of Noah were, so the coming of the Son of Man will be.

24:38 For in those days before the flood, people were eating and drinking, marrying and
giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark.

24:39 And they knew nothing until the flood came and took them all away. It will be the
same at the coming of the Son of Man.

24:40 Then there will be two men in the field; one will be taken and one left.

24:41 There will be two women grinding grain with a mill; one will be taken and one left.”
Matthew 24
“13:26 Then everyone will see the Son of Man arriving in the clouds with great power and
glory.

13:27 Then he will send angels and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from
the ends of the earth to the ends of heaven.”
Mark 13

I knew that the movie “Knowing” starring Nicholas Cage was coming soon. I had seen the
previews. However I expected the usual Hollywood preposterous scenario. Not long after
starting this blog and renewing my investigations into December 21, 2012, the Mayan
Calendar, prophecies and predictions I watched “Knowing” and was surprised how close
to a possible reality it protrayed. It incorporated recent news releases about the
upcoming solar cycle, the possible end of world scenario presented by the Mayan Calendar
and numerous prophecies and predictions as well as an alien rescue that could be
perceived as the “rapture.” Not too far into watching the movie I began wondering if
we are being prepared for the worst.

Here are some exerpts from a review by Roger Ebert:
“A roll of whose dice?
By Roger Ebert on March 18, 2009

Is the universe deterministic, or random? Not the first question you’d expect to hear in a thriller, even a great one. But to hear this question posed soon after the opening sequence of “Knowing” gave me a particular thrill. Nicolas Cage plays Koestler, a professor of astrophysics at MIT, and as he toys with a model of the solar system, he asks that question of his students. Deterministic means that if you have a complete understanding of the laws of physics, you can predict with certainty everything that will happen after (for example) the universe is created in the Big Bang. Random means you can’t predict anything. “What do you think?” a student asks Koestler, who says, “I think…shit just happens.”

He is soon given reason to doubt his confidence. (From this point on, there are spoilers.) “Knowing” begins 50 years ago with a classroom assignment; grade school children are asked to draw pictures of what the world will look like inthe future. Most draw rocket ships. Lucinda covers her page with row after row of deeply-etched numbers. All the pages are buried in a time capsule, and when the future comes around, Lucinda’s sealed envelope ends in the hands of Caleb, Koestler’s young son.
The page seems meaningless, a work of madness. But by chance Koestler notices these numbers in a row: 91120013239. Koestler sees 9/11/2001, and when he googles 9/11 he finds that 2996 people were killed. The numbers were written down in 1959. In a fever, the scientist extracts other numbers and finds the precise dates and fatalities of major catastrophes during the previous five decades.

Koestler and the music of the spheres

How can this be? By now Koestler is in the state of mind that Nicolas Cage evokes so perfectly: Profound, heartsick worry. He turns to his MIT colleague, a cosmologist named Beckman (Ben Mendelsohn). Beckman thinks he must be mad, and warns against the superstition of numerology. But when recent numbers turn out to be correct predictions, and when Koestler realizes that some of the numbers are coordinates of latitude and longitude, it is impossible to dismiss the sheet of paper. It poses a threat to our very understanding of the universe. Shit doesn’t just happen.”

 

“These numbers are not random

But it’s not quite that simple. For one thing, how do you conveniently get an exact count on a death toll via a cablenews flash? It often takes days to find bodies (after an earthquake, for example), and some victims may linger for weeks. And were the numbers dictated by a supernatural power, or by a higher order of natural power? That leads directly to a question at the end of the film.

As you know, there have been appearances all though “Knowing” of mysterious figures standing at a distance. Men in overcoats, alone or in groups of four, regarding the children who can hear them “whispering” in their ears. At theclimax, these figures manifest at the site of the house trailer Lucinda lived in as an adult. At first they seem to behuman, but then they divest themselves of human appearance and become glowing, transparent, figures of energy and nerves. They beckon Caleb and Abby to follow them as they enter a shimmering vessel that seems to vaguely suggest a geodesic dome or elements of the Martian crystal structure in “Watchmen.”

The vessel takes off, and we see that it is joined by other vessels from all over the globe. Then the sunburst takes place, and the special effects are merciless as the firestorm rips across the planet. The two children are deposited by the vessel in a sun-washed wheat field, join hands, and run toward the only tree on the horizon. A new Adam and Eve in a new Garden of Paradise?”
“My guess is that many audience members will experience the film as an affirmation of religious belief. Few will bother to think through the implications, which seem to make religion irrelevant–except as a comfort to those like Koestler’s clergyman father.”

Watching the movie “Knowing,” reading this review by Roger Ebert, reflecting on
recent NASA reports and blending this with all the other facts, prophecies and
predictions, leaves one with the obvious conclusion that something is about to
happen, something long expected and foretold.

We have been given the warning.

How will the human race respond?

I have known for many years about the Mayan Calendar ending
on December 21, 2012. My knowledge of biblical prophecies
and predictions from other sources such as Edgar Cayce go
back to the early seventies. My background in math and
science as well as my life time fascination for the heavens
and ancient cultures has also filled my brain with many facts
and trivia. In recent years, global climate change
controversies and renewed interest in the Mayan Calendar have
combined with scientific facts to further picque my interest
in the reality of December 21, 2012.

I decided to do more research on the coming years and attempt
to separate fact from fiction. I also decided to organize
my findings and questions on this blog.

Just today, I was having a discussion about what I had read
recently and I mentioned the increased levels of solar
activity and that I had just read they may peak in 2012.
That led to a discussion of the Mayans, possible contact
with alien civilations, the biblical concept of “the rapture”,
increased UFO activity after World War II and theories that
modern day UFO visitations may correlate to planetary changes
on Earth and the possibility that the aliens are here to
save earthlings when Earth is destroyed.

Sound weird?

Consider this. We had seen the previews of the movie,
“Knowing”, but I knew little about it. Well, as fate would
have it I saw the movie today. The discussion we had earlier
was the theme of the movie. That leads me to my next question.
Was this movie an idea of the government to gently indoctrinate
the public to the idea of problems on Earth as we approach
the year 2012?

After you read some of the theories and facts that I will
present to you soon, this may not sound so far fetched.

Consider the following:

For the first time in approx 26,000 years, the solar system
will pass through the plane of the Milky Way Galaxy as
predicted by the Mayans.

First of all, how did they know this?

Now, for a snippet of fact that apparently many people are
not aware of from Wikipedia:

“The Apex of the Sun’s Way, or the solar apex, is the direction
that the Sun travels through space in the Milky Way. The general
direction of the Sun’s galactic motion is towards the
star Vega near the constellation of Hercules, at an angle of
roughly 60 sky degrees to the direction of the Galactic Center.
The Sun’s orbit around the Galaxy is expected to be roughly
elliptical with the addition of perturbations due to the galactic
spiral arms and non-uniform mass distributions. In addition, the
Sun oscillates up and down relative to the galactic plane
approximately 2.7 times per orbit. This is very similar to how a
simple harmonic oscillator works with no drag force (damping) term.
These oscillations often coincide with mass extinction periods on
Earth; presumably the higher density of stars close to the galactic
plane leads to more impact events.”

Did you catch that?

“These oscillations often coincide with mass extinction periods on
Earth”

Now I watch a lot of History, National Geographic and Dicovery
Channel and I do not recall hearing about this.

Stay tuned as I Investigate December 21, 2012, the Mayan Calendar
and numerous other phophesies and scientific facts.
