Why should Western civilization be saved?
 Quoting: Chaol


We will save Western civilization
in Time and in memory
of the smiles of its children,
and the music of its flowering.
And it will flow as all things do,
shaped by chance and error,
both loved and unloved,
so that something new may arise.
There are those who would destroy
a life that falls short of perfection,
but they do not remember.
We are not finished yet.

I think he means "western civilisation" as TPTB define it-i.e. The Empire-rather than those great aspects of Western culture like rational thought,tolerance,distaste for centralism and fascism etc etc.

September 29 is the canary in the gold mine (or iron mine).

Those in the UK should heed their former meridian.

(Note: by "Western civilization" I was really only referring to the tentacles of a certain empire, but not really naming names)
 Quoting: Chaol


canary in the gold mine

care to explain this expression to a non english speaker?
 Quoting: Gespenst


Surely.

"canary in the gold mine (or iron mine)" has a triple meaning. Referring to:

-Canary Islands
-A warning, as canary birds were used by coal miners because the toxic gases such as carbon monoxide and methane in the mine would kill the bird first.
-The name of the location is phonetically identical to the Spanish word for "iron"

The location of this event has another meaning, also. The thing itself that came alive on September 29th is the canary.

But, alas, most of us are expecting October 1st to come early.
 Quoting: Chaol



'El Hierro, nicknamed Isla del Meridiano (the "Meridian Island"), is the smallest and farthest south and west of the Canary Islands (an Autonomous Community of Spain), in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Africa, with a population of 10,162 (2003).'

[link to en.wikipedia.org]

'El Hierro was known in European history as the prime meridian in common use outside of the future British Empire.'

This bond (meaning 3) stretches all around the Earth, of course, so it is telling us that pressure in the mantle is at extreme levels and magma is continuing to build up at a rapid pace.

For example, it may be like a tsunami in your dream because you don't have the conceptual framework to sense it for more of what it really is.

WARNING!!! Is Chaol planting symbols in the minds of this thread's readers in order to "allow" us to perceive doom on Oct 1st?

He's created the space/possibility (Canary Island volcano), some rules (dates/chronological sequence of coming events) and we, of our own free will, are interacting with these symbols by discussing them, inevitably bringing the picture of a particular form of doom into focus in our own perspectives.

I'm still not sure if I completely understand "Genius mapping" but I suspect he's providing an example here of how it works. In effect, all of us here are unknowingly creating Genius maps in our own minds just by following and replying to this thread. And these maps are designed to lead to DOOM!

Perhaps it's not too late to remove these symbols from our minds and thank Chaol for the hard lesson. But how exactly do we do that? I guess we just need to stop interacting with them. Is that how it works, Chaol? How does one scrap a map? At what point in the mapping process is a "desired" effect ensured to occur? When is there no turning back from "getting what you want?"

Sounds plausible, but the 'space' would be this website rather than the Canary Islands if the Genius is used.

That could be true. dreams are full of life.

I also have a weird repeating dream ever since I was young.
I see lines, colors, shapes, confusion... and in the end this huge red ball is going to kill me. i wake up crying always even now as an adult.
but the weird thing about it isn't the dream itself but the feeling I get from it.
It's a real feeling but its totally unexplainable and it only appears in the dream.

go figure.

OK. I think I understand better now. But what about my last questions? How can we cancel doom on Oct 1st, if we so wish? I'm curious if I may just have saved Western Civilization (or the form of it that exists from my perspective) by realizing this.

Also, is it possible to change someone else's perspective? For instance, if I try to use the Genius to heal a loved one's body, will he/she actually be healed from his/her own perspective or just appear so from my perspective?

I guess that depends on how you interpret the word "destruction," which Chaol has repeatedly used to describe the intended effect on Western civilization. Does destruction mean millions of members of this civilization dying or simply that the concept of the present form of civilization will cease to exist in the hearts and minds of its members and evolve into something different and hopefully better? That's the circumstance I'm personally anticipating.

I found the above El Hierro thread a little difficult to read.

However, from what i have gleened...of late there has been a lot of seismic activity under the island, parts of the island were evacuated this week due to potential of volcano erupting (last erupted 1790's?). I think as at today the evacuees have been allowed home.

Why people are worried about a potential disaster from this eruption, is due to nearby island La Palma having a fault line or split which, if there were an eruption could cause a massive landslide and tsunami. A tsunami big enough to make it to the US west coast.

I am wondering though, if it is El Hierro that is erupting...to what degree will it effect the fault line of La Palma?

I think this is what they are most afraid of:

El Hierro’s Volcanic/Seismic Past

El Hierro is situated in the most southwestern extreme of the Canaries. The island was formed after three successive eruptions, and consequent accumulations, the island emerged from the ocean as an imposing triangular pyramid crowned by a volcano more than 2,000 metres high.

The volcanic activity, principally at the convergence of the three ridges, resulted in the continual expansion of the island. A mere 50,000 years ago, as a result of seismic tremors which produced massive landslides, a giant piece of the island cracked off, crashed down into the ocean and scattered along the seabed. This landslide of more than 300km3 gave rise to the impressive amphitheatre of the El Golfo valley and at the same time caused a tsunami that most likely rose over 100 metres high and probably reached as far as the American coast.

The idea being, once we can handle it all down here, then we can live and explore eternally, responsibly, because we know what not to do, and not be resentful about being responsible, so we don't start a polarity domino effect in the other realms of existence."

Re: Notes from an "alternate universe": September 29 - October 28. (Do you know what happened at Farpoint Station?)

Could Chaol be hinting at El Hierro and La Palma when talking about the doom finally happening?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1554528


canary in the gold mine

care to explain this expression to a non english speaker?
 Quoting: Gespenst


Surely.

"canary in the gold mine (or iron mine)" has a triple meaning. Referring to:

-Canary Islands
-A warning, as canary birds were used by coal miners because the toxic gases such as carbon monoxide and methane in the mine would kill the bird first.
-The name of the location is phonetically identical to the Spanish word for "iron"

The location of this event has another meaning, also. The thing itself that came alive on September 29th is the canary.

But, alas, most of us are expecting October 1st to come early.
 Quoting: Chaol


Fantastic hint at the Phoenician secret. By the way, since His Story is what this highly edited carbon copy "reality" is, of course it shouldn't be saved. Her Story has something to bring to Our Story yet.
