[Turns out the Middle East is not the only place on earth where trouble has heated to a dangerous boil. Superhot gases have recently caused miles of ground to swell dramatically beneath Yellowstone, reminding us that Nature could end life on this planet far more swiftly than any man-made conflict. Even a hydrogen bomb would be a firecracker in comparison to an eruption of the Yellowstone caldera. Which brings us to the essay below, written by a friend of ours with a keen interest in prophets and seers. At least one of them predicted long ago that 2012 would see a spectacular increase in seismic activity, potentially affecting hundreds of millions of lives.
This essay originally ran in May, but with Yellowstone’s supervolcano unusually active, we thought it would be a good time to repeat it. Our friend also notes that “the drumbeat of prophecies clicking over is also picking up pace - watch England for potential violence involving the Royal family in the lead-up to this April's royal wedding; Tunisia is only the first North African country to experience destabilizing revolution and Algeria and Morocco could well follow in the year ahead; and watch the Catholic Church as a schism may unfold there as well.
“On the economic front, the next leg down in the economy is also due to start this year, and the worst of what will turn out to be this Millennium Depression is still ahead of us. Yes, we have begun the second decade of the new Millennium. 2011 may well be the last year the world at large will not be at a state of world war - for decades to come. I hope the prophecies are wrong, or maybe my interpretation of them is flawed - but that is what my studies of prophecies over the last 40+ years are pointing towards. All the best to you and yours - carpe diem.”

Rick has asked me to outline the impact of potential future geological events on the U.S. economy. I am not a geologist or an economist,(although I do have an eclectic university education background) – my own personal studies for the last several decades have included amongst other things various prophecies about future events from multiple sources around the world. I write this anonymously, and am writing it at Rick’s request. I am just putting it out there for your consideration – what you choose to do with this prophetic scenario, if anything, is up to you.
Seismic Tempo Increasing
Even the least observant amongst us is slowly becoming aware of a building “drumbeat” of seismic events on our planet – that seem to be increasing in both frequency and magnitude and occurring in areas where we find significant populations. Recent large scale destructive events include the Indonesian tsunami; central China, Haiti, Chile and last week’s western China earthquakes and also the recent eruption of an Icelandic volcano. Combined, these major seismic events have cost hundreds of thousands of lives and billions in damages. The Icelandic volcano has so far just disrupted intercontinental air traffic, and so is negatively impacting the western developed economies. We can all see though, that significant seismic events can have potential relevance to us as investors.
According to several prophetic sources, seismic activity is building towards an impending planetary event (worldwide) – the shifting of the axis of rotation of the Earth, which some sources indicate is forecast to occur in the 4th quarter of 2012. The U.S. will obviously not be immune to this massive disaster. Ancient Hindu texts suggest this is a regular cyclical planetary event that has occurred roughly every 14,000 years. The pole shift may be triggered by a rogue celestial object that enters our solar system as part of a 14,000 year orbit. If this happens, prophecy suggests that a celestial object should first appear visible to us in the sky on a future June 21st (2012?) of that fateful year. Mayan prophetic sources also seem to suggest the 4th quarter of 2012 (December 21-23) is the likely timing (however triggered) for the actual pole shift.
‘Ring of Fire’
There is forecast to be increasing seismic activity in the buildup to this worldwide cataclysm, both around the ring-of-fire region and also laterally along a seismic zone that includes Japan, China, India, the eastern Mediterranean basin, the Caribbean basin and the west coast of North America. Obviously the entire world will be effected if the seismic tempo picks up in frequency and intensity, let us for brevity’s sake focus on the potential effects in the U.S.
For the U.S. there are several areas of future seismic concern. The west coast of North America is on the ‘ring-of-fire’ which rings the Pacific Ocean where several tectonic ‘plates’ interact actively, so the west coast is under seismic threat. The Yellowstone area is another area with massive seismic potential, the Mississippi river valley is yet another seismic zone and finally so is the eastern coast of the U.S. We have already entered an especially active seismic period for the next few years.
If we focus in on early this decade specifically, the sequence of events prophesied should include: another major seismic event still lies ahead in eastern Asia, this will be followed by a major seismic event in the eastern Mediterranean basin region (potentially Italy’s Mt. Vesuvius erupting?) foreseen to occur in winter in a future 1st quarter (2012?,possibly followed soon afterwards by another Caribbean seismic event).This specific series of events will immediately precede the first mega earthquake long feared for the west coast – that long predicted event is prophesied for a future April/May in this very decade 2012?). That horrific west coast seismic event is said to be followed by a U.S. east coast counter balancing seismic event within roughly 90 days. (one disturbing vision was from a young man recorded in 1937, in his vision he says the California quake starts at 3:55 PM and runs continuously until 4:29 PM and completely destroys the California coastal region. Earthquakes are intense but brief, an extended earthquake would produce massive destructive power and a loss of life that could number into eight figures).
Ignorant Ignore Prophecy
Prophecy is not a science, so having sufficient specific facts in a scientifically acceptable format are unfortunately rarely received – however to dismiss and ignore prophecy totally is ignorance writ large. What this article attempts to do is to red flag a potential future danger that prophetic writings (from many sources and different locations and times) are seemingly pointing directly to – major seismic dangers for the U.S. and the world, coming early in this very decade.
If you do give any credence to any of this, it would be wise to be careful for yourself and any of your investments on either U.S. coast early this decade (2012?). You have been given a prophesied sequence of seismic events to watch for, even if you choose to wait to act – this scenario could amount to giving you a few days/weeks warning should any of the events begin unfolding (use it to make both yourselves and your investments safe). Major U.S. investments of concern would include such west coast industry stalwarts as computer technology, aerospace, defense, entertainment and food production. Personally I continue to seek safety in precious metals and their stocks and in cash. In 2012 I am planning to largely forgo investing in any stocks anywhere – the events prophecy foresees will also generate far more trouble for all of us than even the earth changes. We are now living in interesting times – and that is a curse, not a blessing.
Rick asked me to make this a brief article, as that is all that I could commit to do. It would take a major thesis length paper to provide all the necessary background research to present it in a more academically sound manner (duly footnoted, with all the relevant research reading). I have neither the time nor the inclination to even begin that process. So basically this article Rick requested I write for his readers just gives you the ‘executive summary’ for your consideration. Carpe diem.
