Correlating the Sunspot Cycle with the Outbreak of Wars, Recessions & Social Unrest
Emergent Culture ^ | Jan. 15, 2011 | Rohaan Solare

Posted on 02/19/2011 7:20:06 PM PST by fightinJAG

Those of you familiar with my work know that I study Maya-Meso-American Calendrics (MMAC). The MMAC system is not what we in the Western world understand as a calendar.

Only the most superficial details about MMAC have been popularized as the now infamous Mayan Calendar and its cycle renewal date of Dec. 21, 2012.

The poorly informed and opportunistic have attributed many erroneous meanings to the “end of the Mayan calendar” cycle.

The general and popular misconception is one of spectacular natural catastrophe. And there is not a single shred of evidence to substantiate any of the spectacularly catastrophic scenarios.

From my vantage point the catastrophe is upon us and it’s called Western Civilization version 1.0 gasping for its last few breaths as it strives to maintain the status quo at all costs.

What more calamity do we need in order to recognize that the world as a whole is in the grips of a serious and unprecedented socio-environmental crisis?

You might ask how is the world crisis, the solar sunspot cycle, critical junctures, 2012 and the Maya-Meso-American Calendrical system (MMAC) related.

I forgot to buy hard liquor this weekend, so I'm not sure I can understand this.

He has cloaked his Utopian Marxism behind pseudo archaeological mumbo jumbo, presenting it as science.

Booze would not help.

That said, a much less spacey dissertation on the same general ideas (that history has patterns and cycles) is the scholarly work, The Fourth Turning.

I think their is something to “cycles” - but his website is too tough to read.

I knew a geologist that was into the whole “cycles” thing. Among many things, he linked cooler temperatures to low sun spots (way back before it was fashionable, ca. 1980’s). He also linked low sun spots to high gold prices.

At first I figured “Well, if you look hard enough, you can always find something that correlates with something else.” That was back in the 90’s.

Now, with continued low sun spots, cooler temps, and higher gold prices......

And, recent news from Mexico on loss of crops, etc. Lack of food, higher prices, etc. will put a strain on things. I don’t put anything on that Mayan calendar end of the world stuff though. I’m guessing they probably ran it out for quite a while and either ran out of rock to write on, or patience.

This is not new at all. There have been theories stemming from the correlation of sunspot cycles and civil unrest for a while now. Certain radical leftist groups have attempted to time their fomenting “revolution” to them in the past.

I dug through the entire article and finally found the nugget:

The only way out from the perennial nightmare of Western culture is a Planetary culture based on egalitarian, eco-sensitivity, gender balance and non-violence.

The Tzolkin is comprised of 3 primary sub-cycles. A 4 color sequence 4 day cycle. A 13 day cycle denoted by a numerical value of 1 through 13 and a 20 day cycle denoted by 20 distinct mytho-symbolic forms or archetypes.

It's all so clear now, how could I have ever been so blind!

The sun today

http://sohowww.nascom.nasa.gov/data/realtime-images.html

Sunspot days - chart posted yesterday
reading down, you can see that, for example, in 2009, there were 260 days! with NO sunspots!

Spotless Days
Current Stretch: 0 days
2011 total: 1 day (2%)
2010 total: 51 days (14%)
2009 total: 260 days (71%)
Since 2004: 820 days
Typical Solar Min: 486 days
Updated 18 Feb 2011

We had a long stretch of spotless days in the Solar Minimum cycle and are now, going to Maunder Maximum, getting our spots back...we had 5 today.We've only had one ‘spotless day” this year. That's one in 2 months.
This winter may be Solar Minimum's last hurrah for a decade - that's my story and I'm sticking to it.

We’re not headed for a solar maximum.

The uptick in sunspots was several years late. This rise IS heading to the next maximum, finally. However, the peak in the cycle will be fairly low, and of shorter duration. (Based on past cycles with an extended low.) I think the Maunder Minimum had three of these low cycles strung together.

Of course, based on the cycles, we are also in the longest inter-glacial warm period so far. So it wouldn’t surprise me if instead of a “minimum”, we drop off into a full-blown ice age.

That's the part I've been trying to ignore for a couple years - I do not want to think about it. It didn't work out to well for the Vikings or Europe the last time.

In a fuller study of sunspot activity, there is a proven correlation of sunspot activity to coming and going Accumulated Cyclone Energy hurricanes, temperatures, Glacier Activity, and precipitation. During the lack of sunspot activity, hurricane activity drops off and drought and floods kick in.

One scientist shows a chain of events. A drop in sunspot activity leads to a drop in upper atmosphere humidity which leads to drought which causes dryer lands and more dust and, finally, a seeding of the clouds. Thus, low sunspot activity triggers Floods.

The result is famine. That leads to inflation and some times war. As of today, the Modern europeans and the Americans have not figured that out. The Russians have.

We are now in a solar minimum. This will go on into at least 2040. The droughts will last about as long.

So, we should see some dandy wars out there and maybe here.

According to my reading of the Mayan calendar, I get a free case of beer in Dec., 2012, and the cat will cough up a hairball. What happens after that is unclear. Guess I could build an Ark or drink the beer.

If I don't have a cat, can I have 2 cases of beer instead?

Hats off to you!

That said, failure to understand the solution doesn’t always mean one failed to see the problem coming.

We are entering “winter” in history’s 100-or-so year cycles, but that sure as Hell’s Bells doesn’t mean that the answer is planetary balance or whatever.

It’s all because of Mercury in Retrograde.
At least that’s what my niece tells me.
I asked her about the possible discovery
of a new planet and how this would effect
astrology, she said it was all a hoax and
I told her that’s what I thought about astrology.
