C14, Pole Shift, Noodle Soup
It is not a matter of interpretation. Unlike such things as encoded information within ancient Mayan or Egyptian or Hindu monuments, heiroglyphs, and stellae, the Carbon 14 ratio is not an interpreted bit of knowledge.
The basic idea is that most elements have more than a single form. These alternate forms are called isotopes, and there may be a plethora of them for any given element. As an aside, I have often thought that a very instructive view of chemistry emerges when the 'periodic table' of elements is re-ordered. Rather than the electron shells as the key to the order, the number of isotopes of the element found in nature would be employed. This would remove Hydrogen as the numero uno element, and replace it with Tungsten/W which has Zero/0 naturally occurring isotopes. Then Gold/AU would be number 2/two as it has a single isotopic form, followed by Silver/AG with 2/two natural forms, and then the rest of the elements. In such an arrangement, Carbon would be way down near the bottom of the pyramid chart as it has bunches of isotopes, though it is Carbon 14 which is of interest.
Actually it is the ratio of Carbon 14 to Carbon 12 (the 'nomative natural state of carbon') that is the point. As is noted in the explanation at this link.
Carbon dating is a variety of radioactive dating which is applicable only to matter which was once living and presumed to be in equilibrium with the atmosphere, taking in carbon dioxide from the air for photosynthesis.
Cosmic ray protons blast nuclei in the upper atmosphere, producing neutrons which in turn bombard nitrogen, the major constituent of the atmosphere . This neutron bombardment produces the radioactive isotope carbon-14. The radioactive carbon-14 combines with oxygen to form carbon dioxide and is incorporated into the cycle of living things.
The carbon-14 forms at a rate which appears to be constant, so that by measuring the radioactive emissions from once-living matter and comparing its activity with the equilibrium level of living things, a measurement of the time elapsed can be made.
We need to note that even in this article the word 'appears' is used as the nature and notion of Carbon 14 ratios are now changing. It had been presumed by scientist that a 'steady' production of solar activity produced a known level of Carbon 14 in the atmosphere. This idea has taken some hits recently with new discoveries about both Carbon 14 production patterns here on earth, as well as solar sciences. Suffice it to say that the current thinking is that Carbon 14 *is* and *can* be used for precise measurement of the age of formerly living things, but only within a given 11,000 year period.
That is correct. Science has discovered that there is a pattern of Carbon 14 creation here on earth that is ONLY constant within an 11,000 year frame work due to a 'suspected solar outburst' that is postulated to occur every 11,000 years that blasts out vast quantities of Carbon 14 (among other isotopes of note including Berrylium) in a very very very short period.
In an ironic twist of fate, the 'old understanding' of a 'constant Carbon 14 accumulation and decay rate' is being used by creationists 'thinkers' who are *only* looking at the current 11,000 year period and thus conclude that earth is less than 6,000 years old. So, an old, academic, and now defunct understanding of Carbon 14 accretion and decay is being used to support a new, and decidedly dumb view of reality. The positions taken in support of this view are only valid if the Carbon 14 rate was ever a case of progressive accumulation. It is not. As noted in the link on the 'young earth' argument page, many sub sets of science have noted the variations of Carbon 14 since the late 1930s, and it was firmly established in the 1960s as an operating concept. Advances in both solar cycle science, as well as the 'earth sciences' have provided even further support for the variations in the Carbon 14 cycle. In performing age/time calculations using C14 ratio and decay patterns it is now necessary to apply 'fudge factors' which account for the 11,000 year periods of Carbon 14 creation variations.
So the current thinking now being accepted by mainstream science (and its thought police, academia) is that, for some reason not quite clear at the moment, every 11,000 (more or less) years, the sun chooses to send out an energetic burst that creates a veritable flood of carbon 14 around the planet. That this pulse of new Carbon 14 is discernable to earth sciences, and space sciences has renewed the ability of the C14 to C12 ratio to be used for reasonably accurate timing.
Obviously, the 11,000 year timing of the carbon isotope ratio is a cycle of some interest to us here at HPH (and on planet Terra/Earth as well). There are so many other physical signs on earth of a cataclysmic past, indeed, a past of cycles of cataclysms, all revolving around or near the 11,000 year cycle that whole books are devoted to the subject....see Hapgood, Hancock, Velikovsky and others for details of all of the evidence that earth is an unstable planet. But it is the carbon 14 cycle, and its intimate association with solar activity that provides yet again, more and definitive evidence that a large solar cycle is responsible for the cataclysms that visit earth with such regularity. Just about every 11,000 years, more or less.
Against the understanding of the mega solar sun spot cycle, and its importance to ancient history, and modern secret societies, the variations of the carbon 14 ratio point to a need for very careful attention to the current rates of discharge of the sun. There are some earth sciences evidence for a period of quiescence within solar activity *just* prior to the *energetic burst*. As may be noted, the sun is currently in such a period of quiescence. The levels of solar activity in terms of energetic output have never, in human history of measurement, been lower. Hmmmmm....probably NOT a good sign.
Unfortunately for all of the humans who would prefer to ignore the potential for a near term yet-another-cataclysm-here-on-earth, the Carbon 14 ratio is not a human created message that can be interpreted this way or that. Unlike reading a series of Mayan glyphs and deciding that what they really meant was 'ascension into the next density' rather than 'worlds in upheaval', the carbon (and other isotopic elemental dispersion/decay patterns) ratios are either accepted or denied.
The recent earth changes continue with the devastating earthquake in Haiti. The location of this earthquake is within 1.47 degrees of a significant hyper dimensional point at 19.47 degrees of latitude. Like many of the other recent changes to planet earth, the earthquake in Haiti *is* related to the solar cycle. There is a direct correlation between undersea's volcanoes and earthquakes here on earth, and the energetic output both in type and quantity of the sun. Thus the current solar activity levels do NOT offer a prognosis for stability here on earth.
An opinion that our solar system is in the 'quiet before the storm' period is seemingly justified by the increased rates of earth changes, let alone all the other evidence within the solar system. A conclusion that when the quietude of the sun 'breaks', it will do so catastrophically and probably produce a pole and crustal shift here on earth is also likely justified.
Some humans, faced with near term planetary crustal shift threats, take the fear management approach, while others respond with threat management (such as build a boat, move to the high mountains, et cetera). In the case of 'fear management', the hallmarks of this approach will be 'denial, ban the message, kill the messenger, and more denial'. The 'fear management' folks will mostly find reasons to deny and suppress the 'thoughts' that are generated by the threat, and thus remove or lessen the fear that is caused. This living-in-active-denial approach will rapidly become a huge personal energy drain as events manifest over these next 3/three years. Rather than perceive reality as it will be manifesting, humans operating in fear management mode can be expected to harden their attitudes and actions under the pressures of emerging events.
As the reality of solar system changes impact humanity through early 2013, it will be easy to determine just which humans are pursuing 'fear management' as opposed to 'threat management'. So as a human, facing the probability of near term cataclysm here on earth, all that is necessary is to decide to go with either fear or threat management. Thereafter things become easy. If the choice is threat management, others of like mind can be located and their thinking as to appropriate response can be surveyed, then personal decisions made.
If the choice is to go with fear management, the work will be a bit harder, especially as more locally catastrophic events such as the Haiti earthquake continue to manifest over these next 3/three years. However, take heart, there *will be* places on the internet where the fear management humans can virtually gather to reinforce their personal active denial. Note that it will take more work to stay in active denial as increasingly erratic behavior is exhibited within our solar system and here on terra, but do not be discouraged, you too can succeed in staying in active denial for several years more! Of course it will be absolutely necessary to blind yourself to developing reality as much as possible, and to spend as much time as possible hanging out with the 'ascension' and 'timeline variant 83' and 'walking pace crustal shift', and other PC (politically correct) crowds, but that is a small price to pay to boost your energies for active denial. The good news is that the fear management folks will help you blind your perception by providing no contrary information to shatter your illusions. Nice of them to pander, eh?
