Via Midwest Real
Every night we go to bed taking it for granted that tomorrow will come. Sure, from time to time we have an unpleasant thought along the lines of “worst case scenario, my heart will give out and I won’t wake up.”
But, what if that wasn’t the worst case scenario?
As we speak, massive chunks of instant extinction are flying by the vessel we inhabit at preposterous speeds. If one of them crosses Earth’s path, it could easily be game over for the human race.
As long as we’ve been aware of that inconvenient fact, it’s been good for precisely one thing- apathy. That’s because the ability to do anything about it was completely absent from the equation. Well, that’s not the case anymore. We actually do have the technology and intelligence to do something about it. However, thus far, we’ve shown a complete and total lack of will to seriously discuss it.
What will it take to pay attention? A 9/11 scale tragedy? A Hiroshima scale tragedy? Worse? Unfortunately when you’re talking about asteroids, all of the above are very possible.
If you know anything about my guest on this show, Randall Carlson, it’s probably because he’s become a living library of brain-melting knowledge. He’s as an architect, master builder, Freemason, globe-trekking scholar, a geology and history enthusiast and many other things. Yet, of everything he’s learned after four decades of toil, there’s clearly one matter of paramount importance- The ancients left us clues about world-wrecking cataclysms and it’s just a matter of time until history repeats itself. Unless we do something about it.
As sprawling and deep as this conversation with Randall is, it seriously only scratches the surface of what’s available over at Sacred Geometry International. There are literally hundreds of hours of mind-melting education at SGI, much of it free. Dive in if you dare.
