Q & A

In which countries do you see the food shortages being most severe?

In this decade, worldwide, we’ll see the current shortages in Africa and Asia continuing, and we’ll see movement towards shortages caused by drought in North America & Europe.  I state it this way because growers ship their food products across country borders.  The food shortages will be felt at the continent level in some areas.

This will be a slow process and not really recognized as being anything but a natural progression from the past and current weather extremes that bring about drought vs. floods.

However, I’m not saying that the whole Earth will have food shortages.  There will be areas that are still abundant with food, but at increasing prices.

As I will always say, local production of food is the most effective way of facing this problem.  Relying on the giant factory farms to produce the food is a great way to avoid healthier foods.  Food that must travel more than several hundred miles has a different energy than the home energy.  This can be felt by those who can sense or feel energy.  Still, if a person is hungry, it doesn’t matter where the food comes from as long as it comes.

When you say you see an ‘event’ happening in 2015 and it’s man made and economic, do you mean a stock market crash? If it is, will it be global or isolated in a certain area?

It is not a stock market crash, which actually cannot happen as it did in 1929, because of laws and precautions put in place to stop a crash in progress if it began.  Downturns, yes, but crash, no.

The event will begin in an isolated area and spread to have global effects.  I think what I see is that it will begin at the beginning of the summer of 2015, or signs of it happening beginning in the summer, but will have a culmination and highest impact in August, 2015.  The impact on the economy will be seen as time progresses.  I’ll continue to look at this and begin posting about it in 2014.

At one time on this planet, there were creatures much larger than us who probably ate a lot more (of course I mean the dinosaurs). So why won’t the earth have enough food to feed everybody? Will the GMO foods that Monsanto is pushing have anything to do with it? Will organic food prevail?

Currently, people choose what to eat based on many socioeconomic factors.   This means that there are many “tastes” as to what people want to eat and are willing to eat.   People’s different tastes will always be varied in quality, ingredients, price, etc.  This means there will continue to be a market for the variety of “foods” that exist even like today.  As today, so tomorrow.  Some will choose convenience.  Some will choose cheap.  Some will choose healthy, etc.  Organic food will be available for those willing to buy it.  Non-organic food will be available for those willing to buy it.  If people buy it, others will supply it.  What we will see is more of an effort to try to curb the food wasting but even this is done voluntarily.  The most impact on people will be the price of food going up.  And another opportunity to say it – local food production – including personal gardening – is a tremendous solution for these problems and will become more prevalent as people recognize this.

And in all of this, remember, by the 2040’s we’ll have reached in the neighborhood of 8.5 billion people on the planet.  I’m not seeing it ever get above 9 billion – ever.

There are people who believe in a Christ figure – they call him Maitreya – and that he has manifested himself on earth and is waiting for a period when people are ‘ready’ to receive him.

They say his message is one of sharing.

What do you see in this? It strikes me as similar to the extraterrestrial visitors in nature and I wonder if these are related in any way.

There are also many other figures that yet others believe to be the Christ figure.   Christ’s message wasn’t to go “out” looking for the Christ, but rather go “within” looking for the Christ – always the Christ within – in the heart and higher mind – listening to the still, small voice within.

His message also, with regards to whomever may claim they are from “Higher sources”, – you will know them by the fruits of the spirit which they demonstrate – not walking on water, or other physical miracles, but sincere loving kindness, patience, mercy, forgiveness, tolerance, true understanding, courage, a sense of humor, cooperation, faith, and more.

Do you think that gas prices will still be high given that we now have lots of wells producing natural gas and oil?

If by high, you mean 2013 prices, then, unfortunately, yes, the gas prices will remain high, because of the growing demand for oil and gas around the world.  It is the demand, rather than the supply that influences prices, as well as how oil and gas are bought and sold on the market.  Oil and its byproducts are used in the creation of hundreds of thousands of products of many kinds.  Even if all the cars in the world were electric, oil would still be in high demand.  We can deal with this draw on our pocketbooks on an individual level, but worldwide, we won’t see prices drop much – of course, there will be some price drops at times, but not very far drops.

We have drought conditions here in Southern California. How long do you see this lasting? Will we have an unusually hot summer this year in SoCAL? The weather has been so warm that we have early spring like conditions – plants are flowering all over the place.

I see the drought in Southern California lasting at least 5 more years.  I do wish I saw better than that, but I see this.  Prayer and meditation can have a healing and balancing effect on weather patterns.  The more prayer, the more balancing.  Praying is like rowing a boat to another location – the more people rowing, the faster one gets there.  If they give up rowing before they arrive, they’ll never get there.  If they only have their hands on the oars and aren’t putting their hearts into it, they’re not doing anything.

This new energy source sounds like an answered prayer for all the people of the world who are lacking resources – water, energy, etc. Will this bring about better crops and more water (through desalination – a usually expensive process)? Will it be decentralized or will it be able to be a little unit of energy for each dwelling? And will it be a lot less expensive and dangerous than nuclear energy?

Don’t misunderstand what I’m trying to mention.  While the beginning of the process for bringing forth this new energy has indeed begun – and by beginning, I mean, the formulation of theories that would eventually contribute to it’s manifestation and eventual useability – the process is a long ways away.  We will indeed have different energies at our disposal by the end of this century.  But, obviously, they won’t come on their own.

First of all, we have many paths before us as a nation, as a planet, and as a species.  Which path we take depends on our own efforts at spiritual levels, mental levels, financial levels, scientific levels, emotional levels and physical levels.  We can just as easily miss the path of bringing forth this energy by the choices we make.  This new energy can be put on the back burner and forgotten.  This act has been done before by us humans.

Bringing it forth is not set in rock, but there will be commercial efforts to bring it forth.  It also will be hidden to many during its development because of theft reasons.

Now to answer your questions.  It could become an answer to our prayers.  The impact can potentially bring down pollution levels including water pollution levels.  It would allow the waters and air to rebalance and cleanse.  This process would be several decades in the manifestation of this result.

It can be used for many purposes which will depend only on ingenuity and imagination.  Right now, I see it having potential for both centralized and individual units.  The individual units of generation of useable energy being portable units like gas generators are portable today.  Larger units would be able to serve larger groups.  There would be a need for some new type of commercial processes for those suppliers to make money from it.  The demand for it would drive its manufacturing.

Nuclear energy will be with us on into the next century.

Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

“I’ve been coming across more and more disturbing information about the BP disaster, … I would love to hear your insights on this. ” S. Austin

While many are working on the problem even now,  I “see” the current status/state continuing full on, until the end of September.  This means that the rate of flow coming from the ground into the Gulf with a receptacle or not, will stay the same until the end of September / beginning of October.  Then it will be dramatically decreased eventually to around 15-18% of what it is now.  This rate will continue for about 2 years from now, meaning the summer of 2012.  During the summer of 2012, they will succeed in stopping 99.92% of the oil that is flowing into the Gulf from the hole that it is flowing from.  This will be all they ever contain.  From then on, the .08% of the oil that will continue to seep into the Gulf will be considered acceptable.  As the years go by, it will inch up to around 4% by 2017-2018.  They will Never! stop all the oil from leaking into the Gulf from this accident until around 2028-2035.  The technology does not exist to stop it from leaking.   While BP is working to stop it now, after they make the shift to the .08% in the summer of 2012, it will be lost in the news as the years pass.  BP simply will eventually consider it not worth any effort or expense to continue to work to stop it 100%. After 2 more decades, they will then be pushed to come back and end the leak completely.

As I always say, tremendous amounts of prayer can shorten this and help the situation.

I will add, to what I “see” about the timeline…

If we were to magically change all vehicles on the earth to electric in one day.  (Impossible, but hypothetical.)  This would not stop the oil companies from drilling oil.  They would seek out a different market for their product.  That market would be the chemical industry.  Drilling would continue, but the products would be different and the end result (pollution) would be lower.

I’ll repeat what I said here before.  Electric cars are the future.  In the same way that computers used to be $1600-$3000 for a 386 running a 50 MB hard drive, and now you can get laptops that run 1000 times faster and store 10000 times more for a few hundred dollars, so will the prices of electric cars go down as the technology is purchased and enhanced.

The first calculator I ever saw was in 1973 or 1974.  It was a basic Texas Instruments and cost $250.  Now you can get one for $1.  The electric car industry is the future.  Few foresaw the computer industry blossoming in the last 30 years into what it is today.  Few still think that the car industry will be almost all electric, but it will.  It will take decades, but so did the computer industry.

Global Warming and related topics

The Global Warming phenomenon will continue to increase steadily until the process of a changeover to reliance upon this new energy source beginning around 2050. As this new energy source enters into our world and is integrated into our societies, the Global Warming phenomenon will slow it’s increase, and then start diminishing to the point that the temperatures will cool, and there will be what could easily be considered a normalizing of temperatures. Those global “symptoms” of the warming process will slowly reverse and it will take from 50-70 years for the different symptoms to return to what could be considered normal, (2120-2150) (Added 11/2/05)

The drive to obtain alternative energy sources has been only a gradual pursuit in our lifetime. The dependence on oil has been “held onto” by the general populace. Here in the U.S., there will be a growing determination in a subsection of the population to look for and find alternative energy sources. This group’s efforts will become noticed as a growing economic market in the next decade (2010-2020) . This growing group will help stimulate the demand for alternative energy sources and help create a market which manufacturers will respond to. Around 2015 is when we will see a “stepped-up” level of availability of alternatives energy sources as compared to today’s availability. Although not on a mass scale, but rather on an individual fringe scale, we’ll see the beginnings with respect to alternative energy sources for the home (2013-2014), and a few workplaces (2012-2013). Some pursue this now, but we’ll see the demand step-up a level and both demand and supply will follow this stepped-up level on into the next decades. Hybrid cars will take their place in U.S. society and by 2012, will be about 10% of all the new cars sold. By 2015-2018, hybrid cars will be about 15-20% of all the cars on the road. A smaller “real” hybrid truck will emerge (testing the market demand) by 2008-2009. (Added 11/16/05)

Some Professional Sports Arenas will switch over to alternative energy sources, in the mid 2030‘s from the traditional supplied electricity to self-generated or smaller community/area generated sources taking themselves off the grid out of economic necessity. (Added 11/16/2005)
