Galaxy Formation


Every Time Uranus passes linteum piscipus, science advances with new cosmic paradigms. For example, D.N.A. is found in metals or found in non-organic compounds -- revolutionizing science, and confirming what y’Hoshua said ( i.e. Jesus Christ) that even rocks have consciousness -- it is just a different life reality. In the finale of the trilogy film, The Matrix, humans and machines origins were one and the same. In the end, Neo  reemerges with his parents The Machine to bring peace to Earth. That film came out in 1,999 A.D. Since linteum piscipus and have merged again, this time they are resolving around the Vernal, so this is to some, rare as three main 'vectors' emerge together and describe the accelerated pace of human technological advancement.

The Universe is made up of charge particles we call plasma. These are positive and negative particles that otherwise would be bonded together to make heavy elements but because of heat or energy in nuclear processes, these particles are forced to separate and we see this as ‘light.’ But as ‘light’ cools, it turns into matter, ‘heavy particles,’ and when heavy particles gather together they can form shapes of spheres and egg shapes of solid matter, such as Earth. What binds these particles together are first, the plasma stages of intense heat and pressure force molecules to bind, and later as energy dissipates, gravity binds the leftover heavy elements together, to form the classical physical senses, or solids, gases, and liquids.  Albert Einstein, used by the atheist for proof atheists are smarter than Religious failed to incorporate black holes or white holes into his cosmology. He laughed and believed these had little to no purpose in the universe. He also, contrary to lying academic books, begged Franklin Delano Roosevelt to build the world first nuclear bomb and blow it up, so he could prove his theories and get the credit. Roosevelt kept turning him down, usually by letters, but on film, Einstein is begging Roosevelt to build the bomb even though he proclaimed he was a pacifist. Einstein may not have been as interested in science as proving his new celebrity status because of the addiction of fame and celebrity status. Addiction, by itself is a gravitational phenomenon, and can be observed in the psychological phenomena of narcissism.

Hand of God is a part of an exploding star and eventual galaxy

Lightning is an example of plasma present at Earth's surface.

PHYSICS: Plasma (from Greek πλάσμα, "anything formed") is one of the four fundamental states of matter (the others being solid, liquid, and gas).

It comprises the major component of the Sun. Heating a gas may ionize its molecules or atoms (reducing or increasing the number of electrons in them), thus turning it into a plasma, which contains charged particles: positive ions and negative electrons or ions.

When the charges move they generate electrical currents with magnetic fields, and as a result, they are affected by each other’s fields. Plasma is bound by opposing forces just as the other three observable components. Scientists only theorize about singularity, where a group or a set of particle phenomena produces a truly ‘free’ physical phenomena.

This is a visual of how gravity operates, and here we use a Star and a planet, but still we must think in very small scales, because Gravity is strong but it appears as weak to us.

Rees, Martin J. ( ref. works), &  Joseph Ivor Silk ( see end notes) about 25 years ago proposed black holes perhaps are the drivers of galaxy formations.

How our Galaxy was formed.

This meant the vortex went to sleep but the apparent motion of the stars, gas, and other galaxy materials appear to be held in orbit by some massive central force at the center of the galaxy. Yet, how could such distant stars on the outer rim of galaxies be 'not' pulled by such an object so very far --- this was the key.

With the previously hypotheses mentioned already, we see that black holes ( about 200 years from today's year) this cosmological idea was contemplated; but White Holes or the reverse side of a black hole – which too had been contemplated in the German Schools in the 1930s.

These white holes were called for no better term at that time, quasars.


However, there were no data sets to analysis for clues. Then some new technology was put into Hubble and astronomers could see the universe more clearly. Also, places like Keck Telescope about 14,000 feet high on one of the top mountains in Hawaii now uses laser atmospheric reductionator – which then is caught by the International Space Station and flashes of bright lights emanating form Earth’s surfaces are confused for unidentified objects. These laser sightings for the large telescopes helps correct atmospheric aberrations that Hubble does not need to use, but Keck is a much larger telescope than Hubble, it has a massive array of mirrors. These modern techniques have help find evidence for theories that vortices are all over the universe  and play a vital role in galaxy and universe formations.

Dying medium to small stars create H2O or water molecules vital to human and biological creatures.

OH+ positively charged combination of [a] single oxygen and [some] hydrogen atoms - discovered in dying super-giants or medium to small stars, perhaps are these formuli for lighter elements such as water to be formed from intense gamma and ultraviolet radiation.

"We think that a critical clue is in the presence of the dense clumps of gas and dust, which are illuminated by UV and X-ray radiation emitted by the hot central star," says Dr Aleman. "This high-energy radiation interacts with the clumps to trigger chemical reactions that leads to the formation of the molecules."- Dr Isabel Aleman of the University of Leiden, the Netherlands, in a study of 11 planetary nebulas were analysed and the molecule was found in just three.

This allows us to know that blue stars are perhaps being formed during this quazar session.

FORNAX, wanda colman. Here, the vortex is eating and a blue star formation is spinning and separating, so this is a view of an early Galaxy. 

I found this to be the case in the X-Ray survey hosted by wikisky, a public observatory where frames of modern telescopic surveys of the Universe are overlaid with coordinates for cataloguing and discovery purposes. This is not a government sponsored entity. Wiki, which means quick in Hawaiian, became a popular name for prefixes on domain languages. Since Sky.com was taken, this was a natural web address. I find these quasars fast and all the time using this private web based science service.

Before Hubble, quasars were considered to be isolated star-like objects of a mysterious nature. Astronomers can study the effects of black holes on their surroundings. These include powerful jets of electrons that travel huge distances, many thousands of light years from the centres of the galaxies, such as the case with M 87, a galaxy on its side so we can see the jets.

To understand quasars and their formation application into the galaxy model, the correlation can be taught like this. If you can imagine a whirlpool in the middle of a calm stream or lake that you can observe; and then some leaves or dirt you can put upon the rims of the whirlpool and then you can visually see these orbit the center of the vortex of the pool and see the relationship to the speed and distance to calculate the size of the whirlpool. The correlation found to link quasar formation to super massive black holes ( vortex) is that the outer rim stars spin around the sleeping black hole ( after the galaxy formation, after the quasar is consumed by the vortex) with a constant rate that must have a correlation to the super massive black hole’s mass during the galaxy formation. So if you are looking at debit you placed at the outer rim of the whirlpool, where things are still orbiting the center of the whirlpool, this is the concept that brought the revelation or correlation to the outer orbits of galaxy stars to the relationship oft he formation of the galaxy by these super massive vortices.

The Conceptual Idea: A relation between the mass of the central supermassive black hole and that of the galaxy spheroidal component.

Before the last years of the past Millennium there was no clear evidence of a possible connection between the formation of galaxies and quasars (objects whose luminosity is powered by gravitational accretion onto a super-massive black hole). The paper by Silk and Rees in 1998 put forward for the first time the idea that the evolutionary tracks of these two types of cosmic objects were not independent and that actually quasars and their host galaxies mutually influence each other through a series of so-called feedback (or self-regulation) processes. (note, A. Ferrara).  


The Galactic Center




The Galactic Center marks a point in our Galaxy where a massive black hole resides, some 3 million times the mass of our Sun ( revised from 2 million, I say 4.1 ( diameter about 10-12 of our Sun), that all of our stars, including our solar-system, rotate around.  At the center of our Milky Way spins this invisible vortex with so much energy that it keeps all of our stars in its Galactic proximity from its initial quazar phaze, and theoretically to eventually drawing them into it and to eventually swallowing them up into oblivion – or spinning them – off into outer-space. Often Galaxies pull each other together, and Andromeda is speeding toward our Galaxy, at a high rate of speed.


The Galactic Center Was first Imaged Near Pasadena, California by connecting U.S. Army inferred technology with Academic and Professional Astronomical equipment.


Just about 10 arc seconds, there are seven stars which have significant curvature detected in the last fifteen years (1995.5 - 2010. ongoing). These are calculated as SO: 1,2,4,5,16,19,20. When first measurements were catalogued, SO 19 graced the boarder of what appears to be this massive black hole ( an animation of all 7 stars, linked from UCLA website).  The Keck Telescope, Hawaii, looking at the Galactic Center has been an ongoing tradition and of interest to the University of California, Los Angeles (+30 years).  The black-hole (actually invisible) has a signature roughly of 1.0x1.0 arc seconds, thus an ability to place it on an astrological chart wheel for new Judicial astrological methodologies. Its common astronomical signature is Sagittarius A* (use asterisk!), because when it was first postulated in its current location during the 1980s Hubble Telescope observations, its location was peered through the spiral arm of Sagittarius- Carina, and it resides a little south-east at a sixty degree incline from the Tea-Pot stars which are the western portion of the constellation of Sagittarius. Sagittarius A* turned out not to be the center but a signature with a strong signal which also lay nearby.

The Constellation of Sagittarius is actually a centaur, half-animal (horse), half-human, the classical name is Chiron ( although asteroid 2060, discovered 1977, near Pasadena, California, have been given the name Chiron) who has more than 26 major ancient authors and literature attributed to him  – with various traditions associated to this centaur. The Tea Pot derives its name from astronomers, because of its shape, and also because this portion of the sky is accompanied by what astronomers vision as steam – or in reality, the dust clouds and the starlight dimming through these embryonic matter – emissions where stars are created like our Sun. In the Jewish Bible’s opening Chapters of Genisis (don’t look at the revised versions)  and the topic of Creation, these embryonic matters – emissions that form stars are discoursed before God makes the Earth and the Sun, described as a swirling wind of dust. How did the ancients know this, that’s another topic altogether. The wind, in place of God, happened as this was a coagulation of dust of new formed stars.


Asterisms (aster is Greek for star) are locations with stars in our Milky Way Galaxy but are not assigned to a zodiacal or some particular constellation. Aculeus and Acumen, for example, make up M6 and M7 respectively, which are located near the Galactic Center’s plane. Aculeus and Acumen have both dubious astrological lore.  Although Charles Messier (M#) was given credit, Phillip Loys de Chéseaux first discovered M17 in 1746, but catalogue it on 3 June 1764, as 217d 32’35”, declination (δ) 16d 15’6”.[1] According to Kenneth Glyn Jones, Chéseaux also discovered M6 (No, 1), and NGC 6231 (No, 9 together with stars z1 and z2 scorpii, and M22 (No, 17).[2] Messier had rediscovered these nebulae. M17 also called the Omega Nebula consists of stars that are only one million years old, making them rather young stars of our Galaxy.[3]


The Galactic Center does emit strong cosmic rays. Cosmic rays can be in the gamma light spectrum ( no able to be seen by the eye) and have potential energy, released as kinetic, if one passes by one’s D.N.A. We have these emitted by our Sun too, and most of our atmosphere disbands these minuet particles so that they are harmless, but some of them do get through and could cause cancer. One’s D.N.A. is the bodies programming station to which allows information to be used to grow ‘replacement cells’ in the body. Almost all cells of one’s bodies are replaced during one’s lifetime, usually over and over as we age. When harmful cosmic rays go through one’s body, they can break up one’s D.N.A. causing damage to the information used to replace cells, and thus cancer is of a major concern. Cancer was noted by the ancient Greeks, so cigarette smoking may not be the number one cause of cancer.


Winter Solstice of 2012 ☼ 18h00m00s, the Galactic Center 17h48m1.6s


For the Winter Solstice of 2012, the Galactic Center will be at 17h48m1.6s. This intends the Galactic Center will be off the true winter solstice intersection of about 2.9 degrees (2.9°). The Dark regions, Dark Rift, etc... the dark passages along the Milky Way galactic plane begins close to the declination of the Galactic Center at α 17h40m04.17”, δ -28° 08’17.3 correlated to the last week of October 2011, A.C.E. greg. cal.). This converts to a tropical longitude of 265° 01’ 02”. This converts to the year of the Lord 1822 Old Style and New Style, Gregorian Christian Calendar and the month of June when the Dark Rift began to be entered as a cross section of the intersection of the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s path – at the Earth’s celestial equator.[4]


Proximity to the Galactic Center


The Milky Way is tilted about 60 degrees to the plane of the ecliptic. The Winter Solstice for our Epoch is in front of the constellation of Sagittarius, and this marks the direction toward the Galactic Center, which is just a little east-to-south of the western portion of the constellation called by astronomers The Tea Pot. M20 is on the Galactic Plane, and M21 just borders it, and M17 also borders it but just to the west at its extremities. NGC 6334, a darker region, also borders the Galactic Plane and is below NGC 6357 that does not touch the galactic plane but lay near. M24 is a dark region with pinkish and luminous star-light peering through and has a portion of its mass over the galactic plane.


M6 (Chéseaux 1) is south south-west of the Galactic Center and inside the dark cloud regions that border the galactic plane. M7, just south-west of Chéseaux 1, lies 2.5° north and a little east. It is not a part of the darker dust cloud region.  Chéseaux z1 and z2, on the Scorpion’s tail, and following as in an invisible strait line past λ scorpii’s extremities one will find this perspective will point to NGC 6334, and λ scorpii resides close to the beginning of the dark region. From λ scorpii to NGC 6334 one passes directly through the galactic plane and this invisible line is then a little over an equidistant relationship from the Galactic Center to M20 or visa versa. 


North east of the Galactic Plane and almost bordering the ecliptic lies the dark region astronomers call the Pipe Nebula. The Pipe Nebula, while very dark dust and emission debris borders a broader swath of dust clouds which eastward from the Galactic Plane has more breath than the western direction of dust and cloud debris form the Galactic Plane.


From ζ Sagittarii, to φ Sagittarii and then looking in a strait line to M20, and then just a little south-east (~ 4’ of arc), one will arrive just above the place where the ecliptic and 18h (Winter Solstice) will take place. From σ Sagittarii and looking in a strait line to λ Sagittarii and following this projection as an invisible strait line one will also arrive toward M20’s region and just below this will be where the galactic planet (18h = ecliptic), the ecliptic will intersect in the night sky. This is not the Galactic Center, but this is the location where we project from the Earth’s celestial pole to the ecliptic to then define our location of the 60° incline to the galactic plane and this is where the Sun intersects on the day and night of the Winter Solstice.


M8 lies just south-west from M20 and resides in a portion of the dark region, as too M25 which is much more northerly westwards – but this is where the Dark dust region begins to widen and split close to beginnings of M24 where this nebulous region is too bright and splits the dark-band into two places which is why M17 does not appear to be in the path of the Dark emission-matter. M17 is 1.5° north-north east of a small Sagittarian star cloud.[5]


About M24 the Dark Rift splits from our perspective from Erath. 24 intersects currently our 18H, winter solstice region but only from a projected degree. NGC 6383 is “situated squarely on the galactic center [sic., the galactic plane, not the Galactic Center], some 5,000 light- years away and is a tracer of the Sagittarius - Corina spiral arm.”[6] NGC 6383 is currently at α 17h34m48.00s, δ -32, 34’48”, and has a 5.5 magnitude with 40” arc sections of breath. And, φ Sagittarii, Nanto is in the dark regions and has a right ascension at 18h45m39.40s, and is a magnitude 3.17 star so one can see it with the naked eye. 


Winter Solstice and Galactic Center Alignments


2012 Galactic Center Sag A* α 27° Sagittarius 01’52”.


The Galactic Center’s coordinates at one time in the recent past as  17h45m40.04s (α 266° 15’ 09’) , δ – 29° 00 28.1’, with its anti-Galactic Center location at 05h46m, δ+28° 56’. The Winter Solstice is defined as the tropic of Capricorn, which arrives at Right Ascension (RA) 270° 00’ 00”. For the year of 2012, December 21 st, all over the world, the Galactic Center’s Right Ascension (RA) will be 27° Sagittarius 01’52” (17h48m1.6s). This has a discrepancy toward the center of the Galactic Center for -02° 58’08”. The Sun has a diameter of about 00° 30’00”. In order for any alignment between the Sun, the Winter Solstice and the Galactic Center, the discrepancy cannot be more than α 270° 31’ 00” and it cannot be less than 269° 29’ 59”. For the year of 2012 all around the Earth, the Sun’s displacement from the Galactic Center at the moment of each Winter Solstice marks -02° 58’08”.  At the Earth’s equator, where the celestial equator perhaps gives us the shortest discrepancy, this still intends – -02° 50’. It is impossible for the Sun to make a Galactic Alignment with the center of the Milky Way Galaxy for the year of 2012.


Three Examples of 2012 Geolocal Winter Solstice, Galactic Center, and Astronomy Data Alignment(s)


(example 1): Aachen, Germany is at 6e05, and at 50n47, and on Friday, 21 December 2012 at Sunrise, the local time is at 8:37:45 a.m., Sidereal Time at 14:03:13, U.T. 7:37:45. It is about eleven arc minuets before the winter solstice. El Nath, Tauri, a part of the anti-Galactic Center boundaries and actually located in a dark patch of the sky is the acronychal setting star for 23 December 2011 for Aachen. The Galactic Center ( i.e. Sag.A*) rises at Aachen, Germany on Friday, 21 December 2012 at 09:12:06 a.m., S.T. 14:37:39, and Gorgona T, is on the descendant as only an arc. This is approximately over 8° and three-fourths of an arc degree-off from anything we would call an alignment. But things get worse as we calculate a city toward the Earth’s equator and from this vantage point we have another set of calculations for a Galactic Alignment.


(example 2): Buenos Aries, Argentina, 58w27, 34S36, the Sun rises on Friday, 21 December 2012 at 5:42:30 a.m., local time, with one minuet of difference to the horizon (U.T. 8:42:30; S.T. 10:50:00), and the Galactic Center ( i.e. Sag.A*) rises at 5:09:09 a.m., local time (U.T. 8:09:09; S.T. 10:16:34). This separation is about 8.25°.


(example 3): At Kisuma, Kenya, Africa 34e45, 00s06, the Sun rises on Friday, 21 December 2012 at 6:38:45 a.m., local time, and the Galactic Center ( i.e. Sag.A*) rises at 6:27:00 a.m. with eleven minuets of arc and some seconds and separating. This converts to about 2.9° (i.e. 2.87°) separating as an alignment between the Sun and the Galactic Center. Consistently at all of Earth’s geolocals, Sag.A* longitude is at 27 Sagittarius 01’ 52” for the winter solstice of 2012. This then agrees with a -2.9688...9° separation between the Sun, the Winter Solstice, and the Galactic Center at the closest estimation-local which is the Earth’s equator. If we factor in 30’ of the diameter of the Sun, there still will be no possibility for a Galactic Alignment, and not even in the 21st Century. But before we throw the Mayans or the proto-Mayans Long-Count Calendar out as fallacious, they never spoke about a Galactic Alignment. They mentioned, however, a Dark Rift!

Mayan 2012 Winter Solstice


At Flores, Guatemala, on Friday, 21 December 2012, at 5:11:45 a.m., local time ( U.T. 11:11:45, Sidereal Time 11:13:56), 89w53, 16n56, The Winter Solstice takes place with the Sun’s longitude at α 00 CAP 00’ 00”. Aldebaran, tauri, is close to the western horizon, the descendant runs thought the bow of Orion, and Rasahlague, Ophici, will rise in a few minuets – and Zosma, leonis, culminates. The Dark Rift and the location of the anti-galactic center area appear elevated upon the western horizon. Neptune has recently entered tropical Pisces, at 00PIS48’48” (or 00 resolve (4+8; 12,12), but it is highly unlikely that these Maya had knowledge of Neptune without the aid of telescopes. The Sun’s galactic center alignment is no where in sight, being 2.87° by separation in longitude. But the Maya never mention a winter solstice alignment for 2012. They do mention a Dark Rift, however. The Dark Rifts are all over the place, 10,000 B.C.E. an equinox alignment of the Sun and the Dark Rift in Cygnus happen, one in 1822, 2005, and consistently all through out periods of history, as the Dark Rift runs about  75,000 light-years in length ( many constellations!), interruptions, narrowalities, isolations, breath expansion, and bi-demarcation.   The Galactic Center does not define any ‘The Dark Rift,’ but the timing for 2012 well fits the period’s changes, and the Sun has been passing the Dark Rift toward the Galactic Center since 1822 A.C.E., at an equatorial view-point. No-one believes me, you must put up the data because I have done so here. ( posted front page bookolife.org( 29 Oct. 2011, 9:50(51) p.m., only the section of ‘Mayan 2012 Winter Solsice’).


The Milky Way


Earth and our Solar-System are a part of a larger Milky Way, a Spiral Galaxy – a result perhaps of a collision between competing Galaxies –  consisting of billions of stars – many older but also many newer, in which we make our home. There are four main Galaxy shapes, and it is postulated a spiral galaxy becomes a spiral after two or more galaxies collide, to which astronomical observations after the advent of inferred space telescopes confirm our Solar System may be a part of one of the colliding galaxies, on the portion of the Orion arm, near the Sagittarian spiral, more closer to the edge of our larger galaxy. This is why it takes over 200,000 million years for our solar system to circle the Galactic Center.


Stars and clusters of stars are created as old ones die, and in contrast to our planet about 4.576 billion years old, the newest local star cluster is the Pleiades’ system, about one million years old. So the most spoken about sub-constellation in the sky in world history happens to be our youngest, in our local galactic vicinity. It is perhaps, we are concerned with the baby in our greater family.


The name for The Milky Way Galaxy is a Hellenistic tradition attributed to Hercules (a proto-Messiah, like Jesus)  who spilt Milk, (Greek Galixico)  during his travails of his twelve labors ( in reality many assassination plots by Hera, Zeus’ wife of whom he raped and quickly paid-off and courted; she hated the commoner people, she was an elitist) which represented the first description of class-warfare of the Hellenistic Bronze age. An adequate name has never been universally accepted, all cultures have their own ideas of the band of stars that sweeps the night sky. Before Galileo, most people had no idea that these were in fact stars, so the mystery was ripe for mythmaking. Andromeda, known to the ancients as a single star, today we know it as an entire galaxy, like our own – with billions of stars.


The Milky Way Galaxy has billions of stars and,.  From end to end of this length, there exist about 100,000 light years. It is 1,000 light-years thick at these spiral arms. Our Sun, as a medium star, rotates around the Galactic Center approximately every 220 million years, and by 64 million years it rises about 500 lights years north and then goes south for another 64 million years and descends southward for another 500 light years – and theoretically it intersects the plane of the Milky Way which then can be said to be a ‘pure’ Galactic alignment over vast distances of time. However, the Maya nor anyone else could not have known this; or rather cared about such vast periods of time? In fact, the Earth passes a point each year from a projection to the ecliptic as it passes the Galactic Center – making any arbitrary relevance and surely a minimal event.


The older stars congregate toward the center bulge ( 6,000 light-years in height) , the newer toward the armed spirals ( 1,000 in height). The older have a more gravitational weight, the center of our galaxy must have forces weighing more than all other places of our Galaxy.  Earth is situated toward the armed spirals, thus we are a new thing compared the majority of solar system family members. Some have postulated aliens for outer space, but if so, they must be aware of reincarnation and that no energy is destroyed.  Yet, Earthlings are not the youngest. For example, the Pleiades’ an open cluster is even full of younger stars formed during our late Jurassic Period. The white-hot bluish color of seven or often nine brightest stars seen with the naked eye helps explain its ancient wonderment as they are relatively close together in the night sky, but modern science has determined these clusters of stars as relativity new to our Galaxy.


At the bubble toward the center of the Milky Way Galaxy consists of 6,000 light-years in height, and the Sun lays toward one arm of the spiral where 3,500 light-years is the mean height, positioned about 30,000 light-years from the Galactic Center. If one places four full Moons in a row and then makes three rows of four Moons, this intends 7000 x 4000 light years, which is a little more than the bulge.  Toward the center of the Milky Way consists of mainly old yellow and red stars -- giants. On the spiral-arms consist mainly of new stars and much more interstellar gas and dust, mentioned in the Hebrew Bible’s first book, Genisis.  And at the center of our Galaxy are some stream of massive radio-wave signals, indicating to scientists that this is a massive black hole’s emission’s. Since we are so far out toward the edges we have a night time, compared to if our Earth was located closer to the bulge, where the light of the stars ( most we cannot see because of the gaseous clouds) would shine day and night and make the atmosphere as bright as day time twenty-four hours a day.


The Milky Way varies greatly in places by degrees, where only 5 degrees across is relatively a small section upon the astrological wheel, while other sections can reach as much as 30 degrees. “The Dark Rift also appears in parts of the Milky Way where often five to three degrees means the Sun passes these places for hundreds of years when speaking of the four intersections of tropicality. For example, in Cygnus and Aquila[,] they are actually bands of dust that blot out the light from stars beyond.”[7]


The issue between a Dark Rift, one of them appears in the position of anti-Galactic Center, is a subject of controversy for the Mayan Long-Count Calendar. Jenkins who made the Mayan Calendar end-date times a popular media event, does confirm that a winter solstice dark rift event can take place in a 900 year window. Although, his concurrence of world importance for 21 December 2012 is based upon some unknown indigenous American calendar estimations; do we really know the group that created the so-called Mayan Calendar?   What does it mean? The Dark Rift is different than the Galactic Center! At Guatemala, the Sun will be 2.9° and approaching the Winter Solstice intersection.


The Milky Way passes the northern hemisphere by the constellations of Cassiopeia, Cygnus ( a potential pole star for the large pyramid at Giza has been proposed at the end of the last Ice Age), Perseus, Auriga and Aquila. In the southern hemisphere, the Milky Way passes through Puppis, Vela, Carina, Crux, Centaurus, Scorpio (zodiac), and Sagittarius (Zodiac).  In 2012 on the Winter Solstice all around planet Earth, the Galactic Center described by Sagittarius A*, studied by the University of California, Los Angeles for 30 years has a longitude of 27° Sagittarius 01’52”. The Sun has a diameter of approximately 30’ thus indicating there is absolutely no possibility of a winter solstice alignment no matter if one is calculating at the Earth’s celestial equator (00°) or at 40° north or 40° south ( see three examples, below).




The Dark Rift



UFO CASE USA : Barney Hill and Betty Hill Claim ALIENS CAME FROM HERE.


The Dark Rift(s) are dust and gaseous-cloud regions formed by emission nebulae and span roughly three fourths of the Milky Way band. In fact we cannot see most of our Milky Way Galaxy at all, except with inferred telescopes.  In regards to the region of the Galactic Center, The Dark Rift begins at α 17h40m04.17s, δ – 28° 08’ 17.3”. Every year the Sun’s path through the ecliptic passes this intersection, but only a projected degree from the north celestial pole coordinates. The Galactic Center is also suggested at 17h45m40,04s, δ-29° 00 28.1”[8]. The Sun’s closest declination approach is on the winter solstice, about δ-23.44° so any alignment is only a perspective. But from where ever one is on planet Erath, no arc at this time can intersect the Sun to the Galactic Center. Yet, during the precise Winter Solstice of 2012, the anti-Galactic Center which does run through a small Dark Rift section is on the Guatemalan western horizon, able to be seen as the Sun at 00CAP00’00” remains well below the horizon, long before twilight. El Nath, Tauri, and Alnilam, both can be a focal point toward the anti-Galactic center portion of the Dark Regions.


The Dark Rift(s) can also be understood as absence of star congregations between the various spirals arms of our multiple Galaxy collisions. The outer spiral is Peruses, and between Orion’s arms, a smaller portion, where we lay, there are Dark Regions between these two spiral arms. Then from Orion and the Sagittarius Arm there is another Dark Region, and a 1000 light years toward the center from the Sagittarius Arm Spiral another Dark Region exists. M16, the commonly called Eagle .....M17, called the Alpha or Swan Nebula but was close to the 18h tropical arc demarcation.


M17 is in the spiral arm of the Sagittarius- Carina section, and is not a part of the Dark Regions. To find it locate the white giant, Gamma scuti, a apparent 4.7 magnitude star.


M20 Trifid Nebula


The M20 Trifid Nebula (or NGC 6514) currently is at 18h02m36.00s, declination (δ) -23° 01’ 60”. Converted to the Winter Solstice intersection, this Nebula’s half-diameter would intend the year of 1953.2y. This region, a combination of an open cluster and emissions nebula, while a nebular system has many stars which light shines through or do not, this nebula has an apparent magnitude of 9. So this is not considered a Dark Rift Region, but like an island in the Dark Rift.


Moving toward an apparent declination to the Galactic Center at -29°. TYC 6839-363-1 begins the Dark Rift projection from the Pole past the Elliptical degree and is currently 17h38m03.60, δ - 29° 06’40.2”, apparent mag. 9.631. Therefore the longitude is about 262° 45’ 00”. This therefore is about 7° 15’ 00” difference from the Winter Solstice intersection. Again, Precession is at 1° 24’ 25” 50’’’ 09’’’’36’’’’’ per century for our Modern Times. This is then about 1,020.0347 years A.C.E. when the Earth Enters the Dark Rift Region. At This period of time the Eastern civilizations and the Middle Eastern civilizations are at their high-points of technology, literacy, and military. The western Civilization is still conditioned by the Vikings, a little global warming period, and England and Russia are about to commence their modern state ideas and state establishments through the help of the unifying force of Christianity. Forty years after this entry, the settled Viking traders called the Rus’ ( to which later after the Muscovite period ( 15th – 16th cc.) becomes Russia!), settling along the Volga river and at Kiev will start to align with a new body of rulers called boyers, and England notes its astrological creation chart to the year of 1066 A.C.E. (Christian Calendar).



This then agrees to P. Jenkins’s estimates of about 900 years prior to the date of 2012 that the Earth had been passing the Dark Rift for our current Epoch. Why the Mayan Calendar reflects the year of 2012 is beyond the estimation of the slowness of precession.  They mention only the Earth passing the Dark Rift as a marking point, not the Winter Solstice. At the exact time of the Winter Solstice at Guatemala, the Sun is well below the Horizon meaning the sky is still in darkness and the anti-Galactic Center is on the western horizon with available Dark Rift sections elevated on the western horizon for all to see – a coincidence? The Sun has passed the Galactic Center about three days earlier, about 18 December 2012.



Vernal Equinox Modern Intersection



The Vernal Equinox intersection remains the majority of calendar commencement measurement intersection in all of civilization history. We know this because the Aeonic Ages, the signs of the constellations, intends an age of Taurus, Age of Aries, Age of Pisces ( we are currently in) and following an Age of Aquarius. All these estimations were taken from a reference point to the Vernal ( Spring ) Equinox. al-Pheratz’s longitude for epoch 2,000 A.C.E. is 00h 08m, indicating two degrees over the Vernal Equinox position. Its declination is at δ + 29.05. Because sidereal astrology/astronomy does not keep in an alignment to tropical calendars all over the world, al-Pheratz has a tropical longitude of 14 ARI 18’ (Epoch 2000). In the Hindu lunar zodiac, al-Pheratz is known as alpha Andromeda. This was already known to Greek Astronomer,  Aratus, circa 270 B.C.E. who suggested it could be a co-star with both Pegasus and Andromeda.



What is a Galactic Alignment?


There are four Galactic Alignments for one precession of the Equinoxes. This explains the eight-pointed wheel in art, in literature, and in symbolism in most cultures – as it concerns long-periods of segmented time. Time is segmented by four ninety degree angles which helps correlate it to physical laws of the universe – as gravity has operations at 90 degree angles in a geometric sense.  The eight-pointed wheel lay at segments of 45 degrees where Galileo showed that “the amplitudes of two semi-parabolas are the same when their angels of elevation differ from 45° [degrees]” on Earth.[9]  The mystery lay in two forces working in tandem, like gravity in which Newton described it as a pulling force and Einstein described as a pushing force – both are right but from different perspectives – as the further one travels form the mass the pushing forces becomes more relevant, and from a closer perspective these forces appear to be pulling. This describes a similar idea of two four intersections, the four tropical seasons move clockwise and the four Galactic Center intersections move counter-clockwise  − both provides an eight-sectional division of Earthly periods of time at a 45 degree angle.


Precession was famously reported by Plato ( c. 360 B.C.E.) as The Great Year, information he derived from non-Greek cultures, such as Egypt. These four Galactic Alignments operate upon a later constructed tropical-Earth-time-keeping-system created first by Astrologers, not academics, professors, or kings or aristocracy. In the Ancient past, astrologers logically used their rational that springtime in the northern hemisphere empirically brought birth of plants, birth of animals, and a gradual comfortable heating cycle from the Sun. The astrologers stuck a stick into the mud or sand and watched it all year to see when its shadow was at equidistant relationships to the rise and set times of their local horizons. They found two equidistant relationships, one happening in what we call springtime and one also happening during its anti-springtime, or what we call as fall or autumn. Then, logically again, Astrologers measured the extremes and found two shadow extremes’ at 90 degree angles, and mathematics’ were born. This led to our standard clock time we use today.  Clock time then conceived four 90 degree points of the Earth’s seasonal-year and linked this up to the backward motion of the Great Year. Once this was conceptualized, there appeared an obvious eight- pointed demarcation of time. The eight-pointed wheel or symbolism can be found in many cultures of diverse periods and continuing to our modern period.


How is a Galactic Alignment Measured?


First we find an authority and accompanied catalogue for dark regions in the band of Milky Way stars. We then will use E.E. Barnard, On the Markings of the Night Sky, with a catalogue of 182 such objects, in “Astrophysicist Journal,” 49, 1-24 (Cambridge, Massachusetts: Harvard Library: 1 January 1919). On the World Wide Web, Steve Coe [10] put up a bullet list of Barnard’s famous dark regions.

Dark Rift B352, Cygnii: α 270° = ☼ Winter Solstice 4,229 B.C.E., February


From the projection from the ecliptic these dark regions begin at Cephus, but these are rather small blots of dark regions, and the more noticeable begins at Cygnus, B352 which lies about north of the North American nebula system, Right Ascension 2000 at α 20h57.1m, δ +45.22. The size is 20x10, and has a dark rating of ‘5’, and is part of what is called the Cygnus Rift. Converting α to longitude we have 300 + 14.275 = 314° 16’ 30” (Epoch 2000). This has a signature for 44° 16’30”. This means that 62.29246 ( 6,229.24) centuries ago,  will convert to the Christian Calendar, Gregorian or Old Style to the year of 4,229.24 B.C.E. or 4,230.24 B.C.E. for the astronomical calendar which correlates to the radius conjunction with the Sun, Winter Solstice and the projection in alignment to B352 Dark Rift, Cygnii. This places an equinoctial conjunction to B352 around 10,000 B.C.E. when Delta Cygnii was the true Pole star. Although, Alpha Cygnii is actually in one of the two large Dark Rift areas in the constellation of Cygnii, Deneb, Alpha Cygnii is never the true pole star based upon the tropical incline currently measured. Despite B169 Cephus, α 21h58.9m, δ + 58.45 ( epoch 2000), size ‘80’ and a dark rating of ‘5’, Cygnii begins the long Dark Rift at one end of the Milky Way.


Dark Rift B287: α 270° = ☼ Winter Solstice 2100 A.C.E.


The Galactic Plane resides at 60 degrees to the ecliptic, and the Galactic Center is below it, between M8 and M6. M6 resides just north-east to M7, and 30’ south-south following cluster M7. E.E. Barnard catalogued dark regions of the sky and published ‘darkness ratings’ and their positions in 1919.[11]  This region is in the constellation of Scorpio, and catalogue by Barnard (B#) B287, rating ‘5,’ with a Right Ascension of 17h54.4m (RA 2000). This then would be considered ‘a part’ of the Dark Rift. Its 2000 longitude therefore is 268° 36’[12].  This means that the Sun at the Winter Solstice for 2000 A.C.E. will be 01° 24’ degrees off from any such thing as an alignment.

Dark Rift B84: α 270° = ☼ Winter Solstice 2005, March.


Also in the Constellation of Sagittarius resides B84, 1.5 degrees north of cluster M23, with faint extensions to the south.[13] It has a longitude for 2,000 A.C.E. for α 17.57.5 and δ -17.40.  The longitude then is 269° 22’ 30”.  This then gives us – 00° 37’30” or 07’30” distance form the Winter Solstice’s Sun’s outer boundaries. B84 therefore has a Winter Solstice alignment with the outer boundary of the Sun approximately 5.33409 years after Epoch 2,000, indicating the Sun passed this Dark Rift in the year of 2005 in the month of March, as a mean of a radius to the Sun’s diameter.


Dark Rift B312: α 270° = ☼ Winter Solstice 1449 A.C.E.


M17 sits just before the Galactic Plane and the Dark Rift sits about 2.5° following M17 nebula with a sharp northern boundary.[14] Barnard catalogued this region of the dark sky as B312, Scorpio, α 18h30.9m. δ -15.08.  Therefore the longitude is 277° 43’ 30” which arrives at the Winter Solstice intersection approximately 550.13347...years prior to the epoch of 2,000 A.C.E., which was the year of 1,449 A.C.E., in the Month of August. This date defines a passage of B312 to the late-late Dark Ages for north-western Europe.

Dark Rift B86: α 270° = ☼ Winter Solstice 1995, November


B86 is located upon a Sagittarian star cloud near the star cluster NGC 6520, called the Ink Spot Nebula. IT has a dark rating of ‘5’ and α 18h02.7m δ – 27.50. The size is only a ‘4’ which is small compared to other places. The longitude however is 270° 40’30” (epoch 2000) which has a precession to the year of 2012 as 00° 07’2.08”. Therefore, 270° 47’32.08” falls within the diameter of the Sun position for the Winter Solstice of 2012. So with 00° 17’ in aberration for the Sun’s outer border to touch B86 at the Winter Solstice by projection, the touching of the Sun’s outer border took place approximately 4.89 years prior to the year 2000 A.C.E., which is 1995, November.  


Sidereal Precession in modern times per century correlated to the tropical year our calendar intends 1° 24’ 25” 50’’’ 09’’’’36’’’’’ Link .[15]

Dark Rift Galactic Winter Solstice parallel intersection 1822, June


The Dark regions, Dark Rift, etc... the dark passages along the Milky Way galactic plane begins close to the declination of the Galactic Center at α 17h40m04.17”, δ -28° 08’17.3 correlated to the last week of October 2011, A.C.E. greg. cal.). This is where the emissions of gas and dust which are forming newborn stars begin the cloud the Milky Way band, in which we call this the Dark Rift. This converts to a tropical longitude of 265° 01’ 02”. This converts to the year of the Lord 1822 Old Style and New Style, Gregorian Christian Calendar and the month of June when the Dark Rift began to be entered as a cross section of the intersection of the Winter Solstice and the Sun’s path – at the Earth’s celestial equator.[16]


The Moon Gave Earth the Seasons and these Precessional headaches.


Without the Moon there would be no seasons, such things as birth and death are such part of these tilted processes. Perhaps, when we decide to make plans and practice them to get off this planet and inhabit new solar systems, we can find a suitable home without birth death and rebirth cycles. But for now, we have seasons because of the gravitational forces between the Moon and our Sun. This causes a tilt to remain at its obliquity.


Because of the tilt of the axis of Earth, the plane of the ecliptic a relative plane where our solar system bodies are positioned concurrent to the gravitational forces of our Star, the Earth is inclined toward the plane of the ecliptic – giving us seasons a vital natural cyclical period for the birth, death and rebirth of plants, animals, and conducting our natural carbon recyclable- cycles which allows planets, animals, and humans to continue to exist. As the Earth rotates around its axis, the plane of the Galactic Milky Way moves slowly backwards giving each one hundred generations (if 100∙40 = 4,000 years) a vastly different view of the night sky. Every modernity which peering backwards to their oral traditions (or some written symbols) perceived their ancestors as different; their generation was reflected in the night sky. The night sky was the television of the ancients. It accompanied oral stories for tribes and later with the advent of history (i.e. the period of the written word!), recorded on clay, stone, block, building, wall, side of a hill or mountain, for prosperity or reincarnational recall. Over thousands and thousands of years, this natural heavenly television accompanied the intelligence of humans who linked natural occurrences to the rising and setting of heavenly bodies. Some found, they believed, that when certain repeated circumstances accompanied some human event, heaven and earth were thus linked in some mystical way. Mystical meaning something that cannot be measured and determined with weights and measures for categorization and ultimately control purposes.


A winter solstice alignment determines a conjunction at Right Ascension (RA or indicated by the Greek letter alpha, α, to be at 270 degrees. Both the Sun and Sagittarius A* (assumed massive black hole at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy) must align to be considered a ‘galactic alignment.’ This black hole is about 4.1 million times the mass of our Sun but still has about 02” arc seconds in diameter ( very small).  This is to say the Sun needs to be approximately at 00 Capricornus 00’00” and at the same time aligned to Sagittarius A* at 00 Capricornus 00’00”. At Studio City, Los Angeles, California, on the Winter Solstice for the year of 2029 Sagittarius A* has a tropical longitude of 27° SAG 16’10” (-2° 43’50”, > α☼= Sag A*.). For the same location and same Winter Solstice but for the year of 2012, the Longitude of the Galactic Center is even further from this alignment, at 27° SAG 01’52”.[17]  [after more demonstrations]


However, time-space bends. If we use our large pyramid at Gizah’s scored line, alignment to Alcyone’s last greatest relative conjunction which is 2144 B.C.E. Gregorian, or Old Style calendar or 2145, astronomical calendar and create a astrological chart for its creation period, we have the Sun in paran with Ekkyhsis, Aquari, at fifteen minuets of arc for the year of 2012 at latitude of 43n, the mean node is in paran to Fomaulhaut, and the Moon has a paran to El Nath, a point of interest to the anti-Galactic Center location for 2012.


Dark Rift Signatures



Dark Rift Signatures are best found in a 1919 Astrophysicist Journal kept by Harvard University, of a 20 th century astronomer, E.E. Barnard.


The Dark Rift and its Anti-Dark Rift

The Maya never claimed a Galactic Alignment. They claimed the world would pass through a Dark Rift. What is a Dark Rift?


The Dark Rift is an absent of star-light, places of semi-luminous patches in the arms of the Milky Way Galaxy.  The Milky Way usually appears as an S- shape band on an astronomical map and the Dark Rift begins at Cygnus (X region), normally called the Cygnus Rift (a.k.a. The Northern Cross) and this constellation consists of a potential Pole star over 10,000 B.C.E., and has been postulated that the Gizāh Plateau, Egypt was the mirror image map for the three large pyramids as these stars are circumpolar currently, and have an off-set like Orion’s belt stars – but are much more prevalent in the northern hemisphere night sky. During the Age of the building of the Pyramids at Gizah, according to Egyptologists of standard academia, Orion disappeared for part of the year becoming invisible for part of the night time – giving rise to the Osiris and Isis legends of death, disablement, and ultimately upon its return in the night sky, a resurrection. However, Cygnus (Greek for Swan) never had this problem, and it, rather than Orion, is positioned within the Dark Rift, as well as the spiral arm-band of the Milky Way.


Gamma Cygnus: 2,500 B.C. Dec. 33.65’, RA 265.69.

2,500 A.D. dec. 47.16, RA 314.63.[18]


Pole Stars for our Stone at Gizāh


The Current Pole Star is Polaris, which has a declination of +66.05’ for the epoch of the millennia of 2,000 A.C.E. The North Celestial Pole is at declension (δ) +90. But the Pole star is measured during its culmination at the tropic of Cancer, otherwise known to common discourse as the Sumer Solstice. To arrive at the calculation at the Pole for Summer Solstice we add to the stars’ altitude, + 23.27’ from its measurements taken from the equinoxes (e.g. some use 23.26’). This figure arrives then at Polaris Pole position at upper culmination at 89.32’ – which means it is not a true pole star but the closest to the actual north celestial pole where our Earth spins on its axis.


Delta Cygnii the Pole Star for Gizāh, Egypt, at 10,000 B.C.E.


Cygnus Delta: 10,000 BCE δ +66.76. α 207.98. & begins to descend after this declinaic[19] culmination. When calculating its pole position for 10,000 B.C.E., the 23.27 figure arrives at 90.03, and the 23.26 arrives at 90.02. This then becomes a true Pole Star for this epoch. So between 13,500 B.C.E. and 13,000 B.C.E. we have the Summer Solstice Galactic Alignment, three academic confirmed large floods, over 600 Flood narratives by various world cultures, and a Cygnii sky patterm that matches the Gizāhic Plateau. three pyramids with one off-set. Cgynii is also the Swan, Dove or the Northern Cross, all Christianic symbols. It is one of the only places which have its links to the Milky Way band, some Dark Rift areas, and the greatest region of the sky from Earth’s vantage point of birthing of new stars. No other region can claim all of these things.


Cygnus Alpha, known usually just as Deneb during 10,000 B.C. held a declination of  + 56.76” ( RA 211.05) and was increasing at this time. However, Deneb does not get close enough for a true 90° angle, so it is like Polaris, almost there. The five true pole stars are Delta Cygnii, Alpha Ursa Minor, Alpha, Draco, Tau Hercules, Gamma Cepheus. However Deneb is smack in the Dark Rift, one of two island rifts in Cygnii, and Deneb along with Vega and Altair make up the Summer Triangle, so these are easy to spot in the nigh sky.


At Cygnii oB2 there are Cygnii O-Type and Super Giants that are dimmed to 5,10,15, and even 20 magnitude by the dust clouds.



Cygnii and Dark Riftii


The Dark Rift begins at the Northern Cross; astronomers call this usually the Cygnus Rift. They must use special telescopes to peer behind the dust and matter clouds that de-illuminate the young stars behind them. Orion has a nebula where young stars are born. But so does Gygnii, and 10 more times at that of the nebula form Orion’s. The first black hole discovered, confirming Einstein’s and others’ postulations of black holes in our universe were discovered at Cygnus X-1. It is at the Cygnus X region where these young stars are birthing. Many of these stars are behind Gygnii OB2 association, at #8, and at #12 which are behind dust clouds, so these are places in the Dark Rift that the Maya had mentioned.


The Milky Way has a few type of distinguishing characteristics. There are star forming regions, called Nebulae, there are planetary regions called planetary  Nebulae and then there are open star clusters which most can be seen with a naked eye, and some of these are the Hyades, 150 light-years ( hell in Hellenistic Mythology, in the constellation of Tauri), Coma Berenices, 260 light-years away, These Pleaides’ 410 light-years away, and the Beehive (not Praesepe, adopted description from Chinese history into western culture and is 4,000 light-years away), toward the center of the Galaxy, 525 light-years away. Only Hyades, the The Galactic Beehive, and Praesepe are zodiacal open clusters out of these just mentioned.


Exploding SuperNova Remnants can be found in the Veil Nebula of Cygnus, another description of the Cygnii Rift. However,  a mislabel SuperNova is often associated to an exploding Wolf-Rayet star, a rare type of white-hot star that exploded violently into intense stellar winds (distributing carbon and D.N.A.) over a long period of time and is associated to the region of the Crescent Nebula (NGC6888) in central Cygnii. Carbon, the building block of life of matter, such as planets and animals are made by stars because they can reach a heat index to fuse various elements to make – up carbon molecules and they shoot them out in these stellar winds ( most stars shoot out 25% of their matter before dying!).


The most known Exploding SuperNova Remnant resides in cancri ( the Crab, the zodical constellation of Cancer), and was seen exploding by humans in 1045 A.C.E., but the actual explosion took place at 3,045 B.C.E. ( greg. cal.).  This is located at M1, the Crab Nebula. Over a long period of time, this explosion will increase the separation  of its material into an open shell of gas and particles like what is found in the Veil Nebula. These expansions surely are what the ancient Chinese astronomer/court-astrologers are speaking of as a misty place, just as “William Parsons ( Lord Rosse) first obverse” these “wispy filaments’ in 1844 with his 36-inch refractor.”[20] To Parsons this area in the Crab Nebula appeared like an amorphous blur, which is exactly what the Chinese court Astrologers claimed moved around in the box chariot, or the ghost chariot – believing these were human souls awaiting departure to Earth or arriving from Earth upon deceasement.[21]

Star forming Nebulae are more abundant at Cygnus’ region


Star forming Nebulae are more abundant at Cygnus’ region out of all places on the Milky Way spiral arms. Both Orion and Cepheus run in second place.  On the other hand, Planetary Nebulae are most abundant around toward the center of the Galaxy, thus between the Sagittarius Shield (or Bow in other cultures) and Scorpio. In Chinese historical astronomy/astrology, Praesepe, cancri, is described as a bee-hive. However, in most other popular traditions, the concentration of globular clusters of stars residing toward the center of the Galaxy had been described as bees buzzing around their hive. Finally, Open clusters are mainly evenly distributed by with a slight increase from Carina to the Big Dog.

Inclination of Pyramid at Gizāh for scored line(s): Gamma Draco



The Gizāh Pyramid’s inclination would have the star Gamma Draco: Eltanin or Rastaban. (mag. 2.4 currently) at the equinoxes, and not Thuban at all! The slope of large Pyramid at Gizāh is 51.8555555 or 51 degrees 51 minuets and 20 seconds so Gamma Draco would be lined up about 1,000 A.D. Declination 51.86 ( RA 263.98) or about 100 plus years prior, 900 A.C.E.


From 2,200 B.C.E. to 2,100 B.C.E. this star stabilizes its declination of about the period of 2,100 A.D. Declination 51.48 ( RA 269.73) – although its right ascension moves normally.



2,300 B.C. Declination 56.80 ( RA 246.28)


1,000 A.D. Declination 51.86 ( RA 263.98) [ what star?]




The Northern Cross and the Gizāh Pyramid ‘Stone’


The Dark Rift is a term used by some Guatemalan Primatologists who assume this position in the Milky Way Galaxy,  where our solar system resides, depicts a key passage point from one age to the next in concerns to Mayan cosmology. The Dark Rift has signatures, currently,  of -19.5° of 17h 28m-36m, passing southeastern wards toward θ Ophici, which cuts the zodiacal plane, and continues toward M62, a Globular Cluster of stars with an off-set from M62 about on the eastern borders of the Dark Rift about 28’ to 30’ minuets. An Open Cluster of stars, M6 begins about δ -33 and is currently about α 273.27° Thus over three degrees passed the winter solstice position for a Galactic Alignment possibility, but one will need to read onwards for an explanation – as well as consider geolocal perspectives which moves these positions from different vantage points standing on Earth’s terra firma.


The Super Giant Star, Antares, a major Mesopotamian Star Catalogued signature, currently is called cor scorpi (circa. late 16 – 17 cc., catalogue, Brahé), although in ancient times the constellation of Libra was included making this a larger constellation and to why Scorpio received some of its bad reputations, see my Earthquake study; the stars of Libra have shown-up the most as key-signatures in large and human casualties earthquakes, is one of the major stars in the proximity to the Galactic Center – about 13° (~15°) from the edge of the Dark Rift’s perspective to the coordination of the ecliptic and of the polar axis. Antares when paranned to the Sun indicates persons who are renounced for hurting others, getting away with murder, injuring others, and lying and scheming. If using 15° and precessing with an allowance to ± 226 years we arrive at mean value against 71.4 ∙ 100 solar-years to arrive at 1071y. So about 930s ± 226 years A.C.E. Antares could be the star for the Winter Solstice and thus its ancient meaning of little mars helps us understand how wars became more and more expansive and moribund. Since Antares is an old star, perhaps war and lies will diminish as the logical progression of the human race. The Centaur’s bow, Chiron, is pointing at Antares.


The Neo-Babylonians called this star, the ‘little mars,’ because of its color as well as its omenic applications. But because of its violence equals material success attributes, and its current location to the Galactic Intersection by precession operations, we can perceive a relative understanding pof how in the last few millennia, this was the astrological signature of the rise of civilization at the Winter Solstice – and its product of war and of competition, confirms modern scientific explanation that all life competes against other life for the resource of energy – or everything in our universe is the media by which all life sustains and terminates itself! For the Persian Maji, the star Antares joins three other royal Persian stars, Regulus, Aldebaran, and Fomalhaut,  as markers of periods of epochs.


Anti-galactic center


The Dark Rift [anti-galactic center] perhaps defined by its lack of star-light in the otherwise long band of the plane of the Milky Way. It begins about δ=13 north and ends about δ=19.5 north of the Earth’s geocentric equator – however just south of the celestial equator.  It has the Gemini Twin as its Constellation interception, a zodiac constellation, and these stars, ε, γ, and η, μ about 19.5 subtend to the edges of the Dark Rift.


About 23.5 declination and just above the celestial equator lies a deep space object in Gemini that is a open cluster M35, can be seen using binoculars. M35 is just north-east from η Gemini, the Earth’s equatorial equator vantage point, and has a polar projected equatorial alignment to 2169, another open cluster,  which is north-northwest of Betelgeuse Orion about five degrees. M35 is just beyond the northern perspective perimeter of the Dark Rift.


A Nebula Open Cluster 2264 is just southeast of ε geminorium.


[ anti-Dark Rift] The Dark Rift begins about α 6h 12m (at δ=19.5) currently so this confirms that 2012 is not an actual precise alignment date – but has a much more spiritual application – and we know that light bends space-time, so precision is qualified here. The off-set is about 93° from our current estimates and aligns to my Beijing Calculations of the actual alignment in 2226 A.C.E.


Yet, we all must be aware of one thing. Space-time fluctuates, and the Dark Rift has a spatial discrepancy between 3.75° and 2.0°. Since precession is not a constant integer, perhaps 71.4 or as little as 71.2121° (= 1° of arc) precession for per 100 tropical solar – years, for our current period, we have 267.045375 tropical solar-years for a passage through the Dark Rift (i.e 71.2121° ∙ 3.75°).[22]   This does intend that the Mayan long- count Calendar Date of 2012 will have an appearance of beginning toward the actual center of the Milky Way and will last for centuries.


For precise calculations, ½ < = 2226 A.C.E. greg. cal. = > ½. The figure for ½ < = has a signature of 1957 A.C.E. and one month or May of 1959 or one year later that Edgar Casey’s commencement date for the arrival of the Messiah’s commencement date and Erath Changes commencement timeline. However, using the astronomical calendar the signature is May of 1958. So the Dark Rift Commencement of the equation of ½ < GCª[23] = beginning, we have 1958, a date supposedly he mentions as a watershed moment in Earth’s History. Edgar Casey is the best known of these American Prophet(s), and as well as the best known prophet of the 20th century, as well, by opinion.


Beteleguse, Orion, and old red- giant, loss some brightness from the 1980s onward, confirmed by my visual memories in night sky over Los Angeles, is a part of the hunters shoulder and his right arm raised over his head point to the 19.5° Dark Rift extremely.


At the Winter Solstice, the Sun is in tropical zero Capricornus, thus the tropical location is at α 270 degrees. But the Galactic Center is at 26 SAG [?] or α 265.5 degrees. So when the Earth aligns to the winter solstice and the Sun is in between these points the Galactic Center is toward the constellation of Gemini and not between Sagittarius and  Scorpio, where Ophiuchus (the arc from θ Ophici, a small section intersects the celestial zodiacal plane!) is a vague intersection and off-set to the axis of the Galactic Center. This makes it appear that the Sun aligns with the Galactic Center when the Earth is located from the vantage point of tropical 26.5[?] Sagittari and therefore appears to look back toward the anti-Galactic Center position I have elucidated as a Dark Rift – or just an absent of stellar light-bodies.



The anti-Galactic Center, Dark Rift & Gizāh Pyramid



This is the anti-galactic center, changing from each Earth’s local latitude, and is theoretically 180° opposition of the Galactic Center: 05h46m, δ =+26.56’. The relative position in the night sky then portends a positing between Aurigo and al-Nath, tauri.



The Dark Rift, for the northern hemesphere, runs through Cygnus, the Swan, the distinctive Northern Cross. One of the luminous Super Giants is Deneb, Cygni. This is not the pole star of ancient times, but a part of the geometrical Cross (eta,η, 3 rd mag. ) ? Pole star? Chi (χ), in the Swan’s neck at maximum reaches a 3 magnitude and diminished to a 14 magnitude over a period of 407 days. This is one of the greatest brightness changes amoung the varialble stars we know ( Kerrod, p. 102).



This anti-Galactic Center therefore comes to some 26° 33’ 36” from an elliptical projection perspective.  We are led to believe by nineteenth century British Primatologists that surveyed the large pyramid at Gizāh, the ascending passage’s inclination is at 26° 10’ 18”. Supposedly this passage was pointed to the pole – star, many claimed, but this could only happen during a seasonal upper culmination where one of the two extremes exists, the Summer Solstice. However, there are two equilibrium (equinox) points to the season and this is where we align our clocks and goelocal coordinates and this pertains to the mean-measurements here for the Galactic and its anti-Galactic Center positioning. Why would the builders at Gizāh, Egypt align their building to the extremity is beyond me, it sounds bias. This extremity is currently expressed as 90° or a right angle and is expressed in mysticism as stressful along with its counterpart 270° or theoretically three right -angles. Astrologer Sir Isaac Newton proposed that Gravity pulls and Theoretical Physicist Albert Einstein proposed Gravity pushes – both are correct as it is an illusion of acceleration and deceleration due to the bending of matter in relation to sprit inversely proportional to mass. In Astrology, spirit is defined by its doorway from the physical plane and appears to be at right-angles and its subsequent sub-equidistant integers. When acceleration and deceleration are placed into the equation, we have a dynamic universe which makes it a mystery, meaning we cannot at this time measure all things and must assume what is real.



From 1905 − ‘17, Albert Einstein theorized the possibilities that black and white holes exist all over the galaxies of our Universe – not proven until the operations of the Hubble Telescope confirmed this in the mid to late 1980s. Since the galactic Center is an invisible point at a very far distance from us, the Zodiac is perceived to be a part of an eight-wheeled intersection made up of four tropical and four galactic intersections that demarcate epochs in time. We, and most life-forms, are bi-symmetrical points of competing 180° and this relates to these Galactic Positions which describes the Dark Rift(s) or the absent of stars.



The Pleiades’ (Tauri)  form a geometrical arc head point to the 19.5° Dark Rift extremely from the vantage point of 21 December in the northern hemisphere. This allows us to pin-point the large pyramid builders at Giza’s vantage point for a potential alignment down the descending passages 90° scored line arc. Since the Pleiades’ are mostly known as a cluster system of fate, and the Galactic Center as a fate-full change in Earth’s linear progression we can confirm the symmetry or according to Carl Jung’s pioneering into the subconscious collective mind, synchronicity of it all.


The Pleiades are an example of an Open Cluster of stars; about 100 stars are closely grouped together about 15 light-years apart. What makes these Pleiades’ so special is that most of these stars are only about 80 million years old, dating back to the late Jurassic Period of planet Earth. These shine through the Hubble Telescope as white-hot-blue stars indicating this is a very young system of stars.


Primum Mobile


The ancients, that is to say us,  believed the stars were fixed  in a heavenly dome, called in Medieval Latin, Caelum (old French ceil), also used in the Bible for a cognate for Heaven.


Alpha (α) Pegasi (Markab, Long. 2000, 23 PIS 29’, δ +15.11’, lat. +19.24’ ~ 19.5°)  and/or Alpha (α) Andromeda , runs over Guatemala, currently, and this star shares a relationship to Andromeda, in the Hindu heavenly construction. The Greek astronomer, Aratus, circa 270 B.C.E. designated Alpheratz as xunos aster ( joint or common star to both constellations, known today as Andromeda and Pegasus.). It marks the equatorial colure, the prime meridian of the heavens.


The Abassīd Astrologers named it Alpheratz (a loose translation as: a vehicle, a ship, the mover). At a magnitude of 2.1, it is the brightest star in the Pegasus stars. Alpheratz also lays in the Geometrical location of the Dark Rift’s celestial equator position, about 23h12m, α 349° and about δ 5.3 [?].  therefore at some point in the year, Markab cum Alpheratz glides over the night sky of  Guatemala, 89w53, 16n56 (Markab, 2000. δ +15.11’).


In Western Constellation Construction, Alpheratz tropical longitude 2000 is 14 ARI 18 and its α is 00h08m, δ +29.05, lat. +25.40. Therefore, from a zero point celestial and polar axis of 0:0 geolocal, where Piscipus +07 demarcates the polar axis to the celestial equator at α = ±0.



Astrological Modernity


Super Giant Stars are old and they consist of Rigel, Deneb, Canopus, Polaris, Antares, and Beteleguse.


Giant Stars are nearing old-age and they consist of Capella, Pollux, Arcturus, and Mira.



Mars Closest Approach to Earth Since Biblical Times



Late August 2003, Mars was 25 seconds of arc in diameter, at Perihelion, during what is known as a Mars opposition. This opposition actually happens every 26 months on average. Nostradamus poem X. LXXII, dated as 1999 ( line one of the quatrain) mentions Mars’ reigns.
