A HELPING HAND
"I am now seventy-six years old, and I can't resist writing you about an experience I once had. One day, years ago, when I was working at the Smithsonian, I had gone uptown during lunch hour. When I returned, I walked down Tenth Street to E and paused at the curb, waiting for the light to change. Suddenly someone put a firm hand on my right shoulder and pulled me back so hard and fast that I nearly fell. At the same instant a city bus on Tenth Street turned right on E and crossed over the curb and directly over the spot where I had been standing. I turned to thank my rescuer, and NO ONE WAS THERE! There was no one anywhere near me, as I had been the only person waiting to cross there. I looked around, stunned, for several minutes, then slowly went on to work, but I knew that no living person had helped me. I think I was in a state of shock the rest of the day."
From a letter that appeared in Sophy Burnham's second angel book, "Angel Letters."
Letters To & From NHNE:
WHO ARE YOU GUYS ANYWAY?
We had quite a few letters from our readers this past month. Many of these letters were triggered by a note that one of our readers posted in our folder on America Online. That posted message read as follows:
I'm glad you have a folder again. I've been interested in your newsletters and postings. Could you please tell us a little about your background and your organization? I find myself kind of sad that there is yet another "new age" newsletter. Couldn't New Age Journal or some other already established magazine accommodate your impulses? How are you different from them (aside from no advertising and a smaller--probably less representative--staff). Is this yet another split in a fragmented movement?
I responded to Karen's inquiry by posting a response in our AOL folder. Since my response was fairly lengthy, I won't bother reproducing it here. If you haven't seen it, and want to, just drop me a line and I'll email you a copy of it. What follows are a few other thoughts that were triggered by Karen's letter and my response. We begin with a follow up from Karen.
WRITING ARTICLES FOR NHNE
Thanks for the very detailed answer to my question. I realized later that my question could have been taken as attack, and I'm glad it wasn't, as it wasn't meant to be... I have actually been very impressed with most of what you've put together, but it's hard to tell much about people by written stuff. I, too, am beginning to think seriously about these issues, and am wondering what the "everyday person" can/should do to help the New Age come. Will you be asking for readers for articles (as your response states). I'd like to try my hand at writing what I'm exploring in the area of education.
As you might imagine, we have been getting all kinds of offers from all sorts of people as to how they might plug into the NHNE project... many of these offerings fall well beyond the bounds of what we want to explore and/or lend our energy to.
For the moment, I have come up with two ways to deal with this predicament:
1. Continue to write and produce things make an increasingly clear picture of what, exactly, the NHNE project is all about (and, hopefully, what it is NOT about as well).
2. Do everything possible to form relationships with those who are truly interested in this work. Not only will forming relationships with others of like-mind be good for its own sake, but it will also help set the stage for seeing how our particular insights, talents, abilities and callings can compliment one another.
So my concrete suggestion is this: Before we talk about writing and/or publishing articles together, lets get to know one another... What has your life been like? What are your special interests? Are you married? Do you have children? What kind of work do you do? What kind of struggles have you had? What kind of longings do you carry in your heart of hearts? What spiritual teachings have affected you the most? Do you follow a particular spiritual path now?
OTHER GATHERINGS OF LIKE-MINDED SOULS
I have a group of soul friends that sounds just like NHNE. We gather--via e-mail, telephone, letters, travel--so that we can grow in our understanding of who we are, why we're here, and what's next. All of us are highly intuitive, of various religious background (if any), and completely dedicated to our paths. Our other commonality is that we all feel extremely old--inside that is--and have vast memories of past/future lives, that we tap into to heal ourselves at the deepest levels.
Although we find ourselves to be unusual (I'm quite certain that we're not the only ones), the strongest thing that connects us all is our instant recognition of each other as family and a deep abiding love that has nothing to do with how long we've known each other.
I'm sharing this with the trust that it will be taken in the highest clearest sense.
Thank you NHNE for your very existence. To me you are an answered prayer for deeper, more extensive connections with those others who are aware that we are in extraordinary times...

FORMING "REAL" RELATIONSHIPS ONLINE
Having read your explanation, I found myself even more intrigued in what you are doing and how you hope to carry it out and reach your objectives...
I concur in all the benefits and attributes you mention for the information super highway and Internet communications. It is lightning fast and it can travel simultaneously in all the directions like rays of the sun. However, it is NOT a very good media for establishing relationships, since it keeps people safely isolated from each other except through only one of the five senses. Interactions are seldom truly two-way, except with substantial time intervals between dialogues -- even if only micro-seconds they are not simultaneous. So the interaction is insulated and essentially free of spontaneous emotion that makes true personal relationships so volatile and demanding...
While I agree with your core point that electronic communication is no substitute for face to face communication (wherein we can engage one another directly, in the flesh), I also believe that the something remarkable is unfolding online. I am, in fact, convinced that the entire information super highway phenomena is beginning to build the bridge to some kind of mass awakening, perhaps even something akin to THE HOLY INSTANT article we ran in our second News Brief.
Although I'm not sure how all of this is going to unfold, my bet at the moment is that there is going to continue to be a mass movement online. This, in turn, will unleash massive amounts of information. Cultures, ideas, beliefs, all kinds of perspectives will finally meet one another, and a great synthesis of some kind will begin to take place. Much of this synthesis will probably arise out of people like you and I, who physically live hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands of miles a part, sharing our unique life perspectives and experiences. As we share and learn from one another online, in a relatively isolated, one-dimensional manner, we will end up taking what we learn and applying it to the people and situations who we are fully involved with.
Eventually, I can imagine a critical mass of some kind taking place where things are happening so fast--ideas are exchanged and applied, then we discuss the results, fine-tune, and try again (both online and, more importantly, offline, in full-blown relationships)--that we end up breaking through the physical, emotional, and mental barriers that have separated human beings since the beginning of time. Obviously, something like this is possible--eventually. [Edgar] Cayce and others have, of course, long predicted a collective awakening of some kind is on the horizon.
WHY ARE YOU CALLED "NEW" HEAVEN?
Why is it [your work] called "NEW" Heaven? Do you think heaven is changing?
I believe that our experience in the earth is in the process of transforming us into something new, something different, something more than we were in the beginning. Here is one of my favorite quotes describing this:
"Some have said that the uniqueness of Christ as Jesus was that a man became conscious of God; that an individual became conscious of God. But we would now give a greater significance: GOD BECAME CONSCIOUS AS AN INDIVIDUAL! This is why you are in the earth--not to become conscious of God, for you were that before entering the earth. Not that, as many religions and peoples believe, but that God would become conscious as a man; that God would become an individual. There is a difference. One is a transformation, an amelioration, the purpose for which he entered. The other is, well, merely returning the pancake to its batter."
From a Ray Stanford reading entitled, "Creation."
Editor's Note: I plan to tackle this topic in greater depth in the future.

Many sources, psychic and otherwise, have long predicted catastrophic physical changes for America. How many of these predicted changes are the same, or similar? And how many of these predicted changes are likely to happen? These are the questions we set out to answer.
In preparing our composite map, we examined eight different sources of information:
In the end, the only sources that we felt were complete and/or credible enough to report on were the maps produced by Scallion, Toye and Goodman. Our composite map is, therefore, based on maps produced by these three sources. Although our composite map is not an exact reproduction of these three sources, we have reproduced their maps accurately enough to show how and where their predictions complement and differ from one another.

ABOUT THE SOURCES WE USEDFUTURE MAP OF THE UNITED STATES: 1998-2001
Gordon-Michael Scallion is the most well-known and widely-publicized of today's American psychics. His specific predictions, as well as the overall content of his visions, follow closely in the footsteps of the famed Virginia Beach psychic, Edgar Cayce.
According to Scallion, his psychic gifts were triggered by an experience he had in 1979. After admitting himself to a hospital for a sudden, unexplained illness, a woman appeared to him in a vision and made a series of short-term and long-term predicitions. Among other things, the woman said that beginning in the late 1980's there would be major earth changes. These changes would begin, she said, with earthquakes, volcanic activities and tsunamis. By the 1990's, they would spread to the whole planet and would increase in intensity with each passing year. She called these changes a "Tribulation."
Now, some 15 years after Scallion's initial experience, Scallion claims that his visions come to him both spontaneously and as a deliberate, conscious process of inner seeking. The earth changes map that Scallion publishes is a finely chiseled reproduction of the many, highly consistent, visions he claims to receive. Scallion first published his earth changes map in 1982. Since then he has made three revisions, in 1991, 1992, 1993. We have used Scallion's most recent map which was printed in December of 1993.
I AM AMERICA
In 1983, Lori Adaile Toye had a recurring dream in which four white–robed beings unraveled a map showing a drastically altered United States. Five years later, a friend urged her to reconstruct this map. In over 80 sessions, she contacted the four beings through a meditative state, and guided by them, she and her friend meticulously constructed the I AM AMERICA map. She has now founded the I AM AMERICA organization in Payson, Arizona, to "provide help during the time of changes."
WE ARE THE EARTHQUAKE GENERATION
This book was originally published in 1978. Dr. Jeffrey Goodman, Ph.D. collected predictions from seven well–known psychics. Although not completely unanimous in their predictions, Goodman found that the psychics "were predicting the same earth changes." His seven psychics were: Edgar Cayce, the famous American trance psychic who lived from 1877 to 1945; Aron Abrahamsen, a contemporary psychic in the Cayce mold; Beverly Jaegers, a psychometrist; Bella Karish, a psychic noted for her medical skills; Rev. Ray Elkins, apparently a spirit medium; Clarisa Bernhardt, famous for earthquake predictions; and Susan Harris, a psychologist (not a psychic) who hypnotically progressed normal subjects into the future and asked them what they saw.
Our three maps have the following points in common. These commonalities are also shared by many other sources (including maps by trance psychic Don Daughtry and maps from the book, THE SURVIVOR):
---WEST COAST INUNDATION
The most striking thing about all of these maps is the massive chunk taken out of the West Coast. Even though the size and shape of this chunk varies greatly, all of these sources predict major changes to the West Coast of the United States.
---THE GREAT LAKES AND MISSISSIPPI RIVER
The Great Lakes are foreseen as growing in size and becoming a single massive inland lake. This then drains through the Mississippi into the Gulf of Mexico, dramatically widening the Mississippi. A partial exception to this view is the I AM AMERICA MAP, which, though it predicts the swelling of both the Great Lakes and the Mississippi, predicts that only Lake Michigan will drain through the Mississippi and only temporarily.
---EAST COAST INUNDATIONS
The maps all see inundations along the East Coast, though far less severe than that foreseen for the West Coast: --All of the maps foresee the destruction of New York City --Two of the maps foresee major inundations of New England --Two of the maps foresee inundation along the coastline of Georgia and the Carolinas --All of the maps foresee inundation somewhere along the Florida coast. Two maps foresee the southern tip disappearing.
When confronted with several different maps predicting such staggering and unconventional changes, yet being so strikingly similar, it is hard to not take them seriously. It is their agreement that is so impressive. Yet does this agreement necessarily mean that such changes will occur? For instance, of the 18 dramatic predictions given for the 1980–1985 period by the psychics of WE ARE THE EARTHQUAKE GENERATION, only one has even arguably come true: Increasingly harsh weather patterns. Ten years later the rest of the predictions, most involving the rising or falling of land masses, remain unfulfilled. This suggests that there may be more than one possible explanation for the agreement among these different maps. Here are some hypotheses:
1. THEY ALL READ CAYCE
As far as we know, Edgar Cayce was the first to predict the catastrophic earth changes mentioned in many of today's earth change scenarios. Over the past few decades, his predictions have received a great deal of publicity and notoriety. Among people interested in the realm of the psychic, these predictions are common knowledge. It is conceivable that through direct or indirect exposure all of the psychics associated with these maps have been unconsciously (or perhaps consciously) influenced by Cayce. What this would mean is that all of these maps are based on a single source of information, rather than multiple sources of independent information. If this is the case, then we are only really dealing with ONE source predicting catastrophic change--which, of course, is much easier to dismiss than many different sources.
2. THE MAPS REPRESENT COLLECTIVE DOOMSDAY EXPECTATIONS
It is safe to say that the idea of global catastrophe is an archetype in the human psyche. Our culture is permeated with doomsday expectations. Also, visions of global destruction seem to be readily accessible in certain altered states of consciousness. Perhaps the psychics behind these maps are simply tapping into this doomsday archetype. Under this theory, however, it is hard to explain why the psychics would come up with such similar maps. Perhaps, while tapping into the doomsday archetype, they are also psychically sensing points of seismic stress on our continent. Their unconscious may be using those points of stress to help them specifically flesh out the general doomsday theme. This scenario would explain the correspondence between THE SEISMIC RISK MAP (pictured alongside our composite map) and the psychics' maps without validating the latter. In this scenario, the predicted changes do not happen, but instead are a bizarre mixture of psychological archetypes and valid scientific information.
3. THE GEOLOGICAL CHANGES ARE SYMBOLS FOR INNER CHANGES
Perhaps the psychics are sensing valid changes in the consciousness of humanity that are approaching. These psychological and social changes are then being mistranslated into geologic changes by the unconscious minds of the psychics. As in the previous hypothesis, they are using psychically–derived geologic information as a template for fleshing out their visions. In this scenario, the geologic changes do not happen, but in a sense the predictions do come true––in the form of inner upheavals that permanently change our world.
4. THE PREDICTED CHANGES WILL REALLY HAPPEN
In this scenario the psychics are right. In a few short years the U.S. will look much like their maps. Their timing may be off, but then timing always seems to be the weak point in psychic predictions. Even valid predictions have been wrong about timing. The correspondence between THE SEISMIC RISK MAP and their maps does not indicate that they were using geologic information to flesh out bogus visions. Instead, it is an ominous confirmation that their alarming future visions may be true.
5. SOME COMBINATION OF THE ABOVE HYPOTHESES
Perhaps the truth will turn out to be a combination of two, three or all of the above hypotheses. Perhaps, for instance, only minor geologic changes will happen, but in conjunction with major inner changes.
6. SOMETHING ELSE IS PRODUCING THESE MAPS AND DIRE PREDICTIONS
There almost certainly are important hypotheses that have not occurred to us.
We had hoped that some kind of iron-clad pattern would emerge that would dramatically support OR clearly refute the predictions of massive geological change in America. No such pattern emerged. There are too many loose ends to make any kind of absolute statement. We can, however, offer you our personal opinion.
Although the evidence is inconclusive, we believe there is good reason to believe some version of the changes being predicted, especially the big three events that our three sources agree on, will take place. Although we think that agreement among our three sources is significant, what in our minds is more convincing, is the track record of sources like Scallion AND the fact that many of the early warning signs Scallion and others have predicted are beginning to take place all over the planet.
In any case, we won't have long to wait to see just how valid these predictions are. The bulk of Cayce's geological upheavals are supposed to take place between 1958 and 1998. Scallion is expecting his to take place by 1998-2001. Others are focusing on May 5, 2000 as the day all hell is suppose to break loose (because of a major planetary alignment). Most, if not all, of today's prophetic sources are, in other words, expecting their predictions to be fulfilled sometime near the turn of the century--which, of course, is only five short years away!

Preparing For Times Of Change:
"If you will take the Lord into your life and let Him lead you, through your meditations, He will speak. Through your prayers, there will come answers. Through your dreams, there will be guidance. Let your life be guided, then, by the Spirit and all those things which would be needed for the physical, mental, and spiritual safety of this individual shall be given thee, in one form or another."
From the book, "Season of Changes, Ways of Response," based on the A.L.M. Readings
TWELVE "ANY TIME, ANY PLACE" SURVIVAL TIPS
By David Sunfellow
So, you live in California, Japan, Mexico City (or somewhere else on Planet Earth) and are wondering what you can do to insure a graceful passage through whatever changes may come your way. And, what's more, you want some advice that you can use any time, any place, even when you aren't face with the kind of apocalyptic changes that seem to be knocking on our global door. Here are a few practical suggestions:
1. Spend time everyday praying and meditating.
One of the most important things any of us can do to live a graceful life on this planet is to establish and maintain a direct relationship with God/Jesus/Spirit. Spending time daily with God helps loosen the powerful grip this world has on us. It helps us remember that we are more than flesh and blood and that there is more to life than we can see with our eyes. It helps us heal faster. Find answers and solve problems more quickly. Make changes more gracefully. Feel guided, protected and looked after by forces greater than ourselves. Sense the larger, grander scheme of things which helps put the drama of daily life into its proper (not as real, dire, or all-important as it seems) perspective. In short, spending time with God on a daily basis provides us with a rock-solid foundation upon which to stand and face whatever experiences may come our way.
2. Learn how to receive guidance directly from God.
Holy Books, friends, spiritual teachers, counselors, advisors and gurus are nice, but in the end they are no substitute for God. Anyone who seriously wants to find their way through the incredibly complicated jungles of this world is going to need a direct pipeline to the Creator. We all have it, of course. But few of us know how to use it. And no wonder. The business of receiving inner guidance is full of perilous dangers. Our personalities, inner blocks, karmic patterns, biases, belief systems, practically everything about us pollutes the wells of inspiration that continuously bubble up from within. Be that as it may be, in the end, if we really want to safely find our way through times of change (especially through the kind of changes our world is presently facing), we've all got to learn how to receive guidance direct from the Source.**
3. Strengthen our belief that God regularly intercedes in the affairs of ordinary men and women (especially in times of great need).
There have always been stories of God miraculously interceding in the affairs of mankind. And now, more than ever, God, Jesus, Mother Mary, angels, various kinds of spiritual forces seem to be on the move in the world today. The growing presence of these spiritual forces bares witness to the fact that we are not alone. The more we can open our hearts and minds to this truth, the more we will be able to ask for and receive help from above. Granted, it may not always come in the form of angels or unseen hands pulling us off dangerous street corners. But if we sincerely ask for help, and truly need it, help, in some form, will come.
4. Deal with our fears about death and dying.
For most of us, the fear of death is a major source of pain, stress, and worry. Although this fear may not occupy our day-to-day thoughts very much, in times of change, in particular in times of change that include the death of ourselves, someone we love, or even strangers, the fear of death can be paralyzing. One concrete way we can deal with this fear, is to become familiar with both death itself (what happens to physical bodies when they die) as well as what may happen to us when we pass over to the other side. Studying near-death experiences, tapping into our own eternal natures and internalizing philosophies like reincarnation that promote a view that life is eternal are all practical ways we can take the sting out of death. And once the sting has been taken out of death, it will be much easier to deal with WHEN (not if) it pays us a visit.
5. Develop an outlook on life that allows us to view and pass through painful experiences as a natural, normal part of our earthly experience.
Philosophies that teach us that pain and suffering are not a natural, normal part of life, or that such experiences are only signs that one's life has gone askew, do not serve us well during times of painful change. Whether we have, in fact, created a painful experience in our life or whether a painful experience has come to us because it happens to be a part of the particular change we are going through (like childbirth), we need to be able to accept these experiences. Instead of feeling guilty and condemning ourselves, we can relax, take a deep breath, and acknowledge that pain is sometimes part of the program down here. Its all right. We're all right. We'll learn our lesson (we'll figure out whatever we did to cause ourselves the pain we are experiencing) or we'll just let the pain flow through us (we'll accept it as a part of the natural process we are passing through). Pain comes and pain goes, if we let it. If, on the other hand, we resist it, it tends to hang around and grow stronger, making everything more difficult than it needs to be.
6. Remember that change is what life is all about--and relax.
Along similar lines, it seems important to remember that "change" is the nature of life (both on Earth and, apparently, everywhere else). Because of this, the only kind of posture we can realistically adopt is a posture that is always ready to change. We need to expect change and learn to be comfortable with it. Those of us that cling to old ways are eventually ripped loose, often traumatically. While those of us that gracefully surrender and go with the flow are able to adapt to whatever comes our way must easier.
7. Study the changes that other times, places and people have passed through--and our reactions to those changes.
Another practical way to prepare ourselves for times of change is to become familiar with what other people on our planet have experienced. What was it like to live in Nazi Germany prior to, during and after World War II? What was it like to live during the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, the Civil Rights Movement, or other times of great change? What can we learn from people who survived various man-made and natural disasters? How do these events make us feel? What kind of fears are triggered in us? How would we deal with similar situations?
Even though we, ourselves, may never experience the same kind of events we study, if we encounter something that upsets us in these events, then we at least have the opportunity to work on areas of ourselves that are undone. Refusing to expose ourselves to things that may trigger our fears doesn't protect us from them. Nor does it prevent them from manifesting. Quite the contrary. The more undone and unfinished forces there are roaming around within us that we don't know about and/or refuse to acknowledge and deal with, the more likely these forces are to eventually project themselves onto the canvass of our outer life. Beginning a fearless inventory of ourselves, and then dealing directly with whatever fears we find buried deep inside, may well save us from having to externalize these unresolved issues. And if such experiences still come our way, we will be better able to cope with them.
8. Keep open, inquisitive minds, stay informed and don't allow new things to send us off the deep end.
The more open and informed we are, the least likely we will be to be caught by something unexpected. Similarly, the more careful we are at making snap judgments, the more likely we will be to make wise, well-balanced decisions.
When the white man first came to the Americas, many Native Americans were completely dumbfounded and stunned by the inventions he brought with them. Because the Native Peoples were so dazzled by the white man's "talking leafs" (books) "smoking sticks" (guns) and "iron horse" (train), many Native People's were cast adrift. They no longer knew how valid their culture, beliefs and practices were. In the end, many Native Americans prematurely concluded that the white man's ways were superior to their own. Some, of course, were. While others weren't. Since I'm convinced that we are going to be dazzled by more and more incredible events in the days ahead, one practical survival tip is to stay open-minded, well-informed and level-headed. More likely than not, most of us will be called to incorporate new discoveries into old ones, rather than abandoning old discoveries altogether.
9. Live each day as if it were our last.
If we died today, what would we feel undone or unfinished about? What regrets would we have? And what would we feel good about? What fulfilling things would we wish we had done more often? If a disaster of some kind laid waste to our lives today, we wouldn't want to be carrying around the additional burden of feeling we had lived our life poorly. As much as possible, we should, therefore, live life to the fullest. We should keep everything up-to-date. Settle arguments. Resolve conflicts. Maintain relationships. Show and tell those we love how we really feel about them. Keep our lives in order. Then, if our lives are changed in the twinkling of an eye, we can spend our time adapting to the new circumstances rather than feeling guilty about all the things we left undone in our past.
10. Make as many good friends as we can.
It may be possible to survive completely on our own for short amounts of time, but not forever. Whether we like it or not, the fact is human beings need other human beings. Because we need other people to love and be loved by, and because we need other people for the help and resources they can bring into our lives, establishing and maintaining relationships with other human beings should be one of our biggest priorities. We should invest in human relationships as if our lives depend on it (because they do).
11. Keep our bodies strong and healthy.
Strong and healthy bodies makes life easier. In times of great change, strong and healthy bodies may do more than make life easier. They may make the difference between graceful passages or painful ones. Also, since dentists, doctors, and normal medical care may not be available, we should try to take care of whatever physical needs we have as they arise. Putting them off may mean they are never taken care of, or at least not taken care of before they cause us more trouble than they should have.
12. Be physically prepared.
If we live in an area that is prone to earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunami inundations, we should move (if we feel guided to) or take whatever precautions we need to in order to have the things we need to gracefully survive.
And whether we live in areas that are prone to natural disasters or not, we should still be prepared for unexpected events.
If our power goes out, or water stops flowing, or food runs out for a week, what will we do? If the system we rely on everyday to meet our basic needs has been temporarily knocked out, how prepared are we to "wing it"?
It is also important to remember that natural events are not the only kind of events that can throw our lives into turmoil. Do we live near a nuclear reactor? A chemical plant? A missile sight? Do we live in the middle of a large city or way out in no-man's land? Are there violent, hostile, unstable gangs, hate groups nearby? Or are we relatively alone?
Here are three good questions to ask ourselves:1. Do we have the resources we need--water, food, clothing, blankets, matches, flashlights, candles, radios, first aid kits--to survive short-term times of change?
2. Are we personally knowledgeable and resourceful enough to take care of ourselves, and our loved ones during times of change?
3. How many friends do we have that we can turn to and rely upon during times of change? What kind of resources can we share and pool? What kind of resources and expertise can we offer one another? How prepared, how reliable, how resourceful are our friends? Have we discussed such things with them?
As important as it is to anticipate all the changes that can come our way, and attempt to prepare for them, in the end we are all in WAY over our heads. When all is said and done, the MOST practical thing we can do to prepare for everything that can happen to us is to strengthen our relationship with God. God alone can lead us safely through the volatile, ever-changing, often perilous journey of life. My main advise is, therefore, very simple: Just do whatever you feel God/Jesus/Spirit guides you to do. No more. No less. And then try to relax.

A HUM PHENOMENON UPDATE
For some time now, there have been reports of a strange, low hum in the Taos, New Mexico area. Although inaudible to most people, those people who claim to hear the sound, say it sounds "like the drone of a million bees" or "like a diesel motor running off in the distance." They claim the sound penetrates walls, floors, houses, and even their bodies "to the bone." Those who claim to hear this sound also claim it is profoundly irritating. What's more, it can also produce a series of side-effects, including dizziness, lightheadedness, nausea, heart palpitations, an inability to concentrate, impatience and sleep disorders.
So is there really a sound, or are these people (now reportedly numbering in the thousands) making it up?
A recent story that aired on ENCOUNTERS: THE HIDDEN TRUTH, reported that the hum phenomenon is growing. According to ENCOUNTERS, the hum phenomenon is no longer limited to the Taos, New Mexico. People on opposite sides of the continent, all the way form Southern California to Massachusetts are reporting hearing the strange hum. Some of these people, desperate to find out what is producing this irritating sound, have banded formed a group called, "The Hearers".
ENCOUNTERS also reported that the University of New Mexico has been investigating the phenomenon. Using sophisticated electronic equipment, the university has been trying to capture the elusive sound on tape. So far, their attempts have been unsuccessful. But another man, an electrical engineer named James Garner, apparently succeeded. He buried sensors 8 feet underground in the Taos, New Mexico area and claims to have captured the hum on tape. Tom Borton, an acoustic expert who was hired by ENCOUNTERS to analyze the tape, said that the sound was very consistent, very pure and "not something normally found in nature." He went on to add, "If in fact people are hearing this sound from coast to coast, the source of this sound would have to be driven by such a huge energy force deep down in the planet that I just can't imagine what kind of power [could] do it."
ENCOUNTERS theorized that the sound might be produced by U.S. Military transmitters that are known to be buried deep within the earth. The transmitters, which use ELF (extremely low frequency) waves, are designed to send secret radio transmissions to submarines. Apparently, these ELF communications are very powerful and can travel great distances through virtually anything. Some of the Hearers that ENCOUNTERS interviewed indicated that they have noticed the hum phenomenon tends to increase when military and political tensions rise (indicating that the hum sound may, indeed, be connected to these secret elf transmissions).
ENCOUNTERS also theorized that underground UFO bases might be the source of the phenomena. In our first in-depth Special Report on Gordon-Michael Scallion and his Predictions (November 11, 1994), we reported that Scallion indicated that he felt the hum phenomena was primarily the result of tectonic stress."A hum phenomena will begin to make vast numbers of people sick with flu-like symptoms in America. The hum phenomena, according to Scallion, will be caused by tectonic plates rubbing against one another. This rubbing will generate a sound just below the threshold of human hearing and will cause nausea, chest pains, possibly even heart-failure in some people. It will affect the inner ear, thyroid, pituitary, lungs and heart. Animals will also become increasingly erratic as this phenomena becomes stronger and more wide spread."
The February 1994 issue of THE EARTH CHANGES REPORT reported that Scallion believes that the hum phenomenon in New Mexico area is "caused by experiments and underground machinery." That same issue also noted that "a few weeks before the January 17, L.A. earthquake, the number of reports received at ECR increased."
So what's going on here? Are we dealing with one hum phenomena, or two, or three? Is it caused by ELF transmissions? Underground UFO bases? Or the rubbing together of massive tectonic plates? Or all three? Or something else?
ENCOUNTERS thinks it is caused by ELF transmissions and/or UFOs. Scallion thinks it is caused partly by military experiments and underground machinery and mostly by the tectonic plates. And we don't know what to think.
What does, however, seem certain, is that more and more people are hearing some kind of highly disturbing hum sound and being negatively affected by it.
We'll keep you posted.
Gordon-Michael Scallion Update:
DID SCALLION PREDICT THE CALIFORNIA FLOODS?
Tuesday, January 10, 1995
You may have seen on T.V. what is happening to California. My daughter was flooded last night she lives a mile from me. Pumps can not pump the water out fast enough and rivers and streams are flooding. I just got news from my son in San Diego that his patio flooded into his house and everything was a mess. Trees are down all over and power lines are bent and broken. It took me an hour to get home when it takes only 15 minutes normally... I thought it was either quakes and volcanoes in those [Scallion] predictions. I don't remember reading anything about floods?
Marie, in California
Scallion didn't say anything about major storms or flooding in California in his January newsletter, which listed his predictions for 1995 (and beyond). The closest prediction he had, which obviously doesn't apply, was:
"Rain in the spring will be record-breaking throughout the U.S."
DID SCALLION PREDICT THE KOBE EARTHQUAKE?
Although Scallion didn't make any specific predictions about Japan in his January newsletter, he did mention that the RING OF FIRE area would experience super-mega quakes in '95 -'96:
"In '95 -'96, super-mega quakes hit the RING OF FIRE because of a slippage of an unknown secondary tectonic plate system, hundreds of miles below the currently known tectonic plate system."
Japanese fishermen believe the sea bed sent forth an omen on January 16, the day before the killer earthquake struck Kobe, Japan. According the news reports, fisherman noticed large numbers of dead gizzard shad fish and murky brown water rising from the bottom of the strait that separates their island and Kobe. One fisherman noted that he had never seen the water dirtied like this before while another was puzzled by his poor catch the day before the earthquake.
Although scientists dismiss these fish stories, Japan's fishermen-forecasters are listened to because of a widely-held belief in Japan that earthquakes are preceded by the surfacing of catfish thought normally never to leave the sea bed.

WHEN WILL "THE BIG ONE" (or "ONES") STRIKE?
When is the Big One (or series of Big Ones) likely to strike? According to revised scientific estimates, the chance of a major earthquake hitting Southern California over the next 30 years is around 85 per cent. In 1988, scientists issued a report which estimated there was a 50 to 60 per cent chance of a major quake in southern California in the next 30 years.
The Working Group on California Earthquake Probabilities, grouping 14 experts from universities and government agencies, used two models to estimate the risk of an earthquake measuring seven or higher on the Richter scale hitting southern California before 2024.

ARIZONA BRACES FOR "THE BIG ONE"
We've all heard how California is bracing itself for the "Big One" or, what some experts are predicting, "the SERIES of BIG ONES." What many people don't know is that Arizona is preparing for it (or them) as well. A news report on a Phoenix television station recently reported that Phoenix (and the surrounding metropolitan areas) regularly stage California earthquake drills. The drills are designed to deal with people who are flown from California disaster areas to Phoenix hospitals and to deal with large numbers of displaced California refugees.
CALIFORNIA: IS THE PUMP BEING PRIMED?
We have two unconfirmed reports to pass on to you.
According to one source, THE 700 CLUB recently ran a news story in which California scientists expressed concern that the recent flooding in California is increasing the pressure on the faults there.
Another source reported that CNN had run a news story that said scientists have noticed a corollary between earthquakes in Japan and earthquakes in California. The recent series of major Japanese earthquakes have these scientists concerned that more major earthquakes might also strike California in the near future. --DS
EL NINO IS BACK AGAIN--AND SCIENTISTS DON'T KNOW WHY
Using satellites, NASA scientists have confirmed that EL Nino, a climatic effect that typically generates devastating storms in the Americas, is back. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory said that the heavy rains and flooding in California, as well as the unseasonably warm weather in the northeast United States, were caused by EL Nino.
According to NASA, the present El Nino appears somewhat stronger and might have stronger and longer-lasting effects that the El Nino of the winter of 1992-93. In the past, scientists discovered that the El Nino effect would return every five to seven years. In recent years, it has been returning every three to five years. And now it is every other year. Why? Scientists studying the phenomenon aren't sure.

OUR DIFFERENCES ARE ONLY SKIN DEEP
By now you've probably heard of a book called THE BELL CURVE. Written by Charles Murray and Richard Herrnstein, the book leaped to the attention of the mass media when it claimed that genetics were responsible for the gap between the average I.Q. of whites and blacks. Its conclusion: White people are genetically more intelligent than blacks.
While the mass media had a field day arguing about THE BELL CURVE'S controversial conclusions, another book appeared on the scene. This new book, called THE HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY OF HUMAN GENES squarely challenges the idea that one race is better than any other. The result of more than 50 years of research in population genetics, it concludes the human races are remarkably alike under the skin. The variations among individuals is much greater than the differences among groups. In fact, the diversity among individuals is so enormous that the whole concept of race becomes meaningless at the genetic level. There is, according to the book, "no scientific basis" for theories touting the genetic superiority of any one population over another.
The book, which is the first genetic atlas of the world, took 16 years to create. It was painstakingly authored by Luca Cavalli-Sforza, Paola Menozzi, and Alberto Piazza, all population geneticists. Weighing in at seven and a half pounds, the book is 1,000 pages long and features more than 500 maps that show areas of genetic similarity around the world. Among other things, it confirms that Africa was the birthplace of humanity and the place from which all human migrations began. It also concludes that skin color and other superficial traits are mainly adaptations to climate as humans moved from one continent to another.

THE ICE AGE: IT CAME QUICKLY!
Scientists have long tracked the coming and going of ice ages. They are a regular occurrence on planet Earth. Until recently, most scientist thought that these ice ages came and went relatively slowly, over the course of thousands of years. Recent findings, however, indicate the last ice age may have retreated in as little as ten to twenty years!
Using ice core samples collected from the polar ice caps, scientists are now able to tell what kind of changes have taken place on the earth for the last 200,000 years. Analyzing ancient rain, dust, and snow, scientists can now tell, down to the year, when volcanoes erupted. When weather patterns changed. When massive forest fires took place. And when the last ice age began and end. According to these recent findings, the last ice age ended about 15,000 years ago and the entire climate of the world was radically changed shortly thereafter.
These new findings, have scientists all over the world scratching their heads. Along with wondering how the last ice age could have ended so quickly, scientists are also wondering how plants and animals adapted to such dramatic changes? Surprisingly, many animals, including woolly mammoths, may have been resourceful enough to survive. Survive that is, if they didn't have to deal with another ominous force: A little fellow that walked on two legs and threw sharp sticks at you. Man.

COLLECTING WATER FROM THIN AIR
So you are dying of thirst in some desolate corner of the world, perhaps a wind swept desert somewhere. What to do?
If you are like some resourceful scientists in Chile you might try stringing up huge sheets of plastic-mesh netting over lines suspended seven feet off the ground and see if you can catch the moisture from passing clouds.
Villagers who live in Chungungo, Chile typically see no rain for YEARS on end. Their home is one of the driest places on the planet. So atmospheric scientists from Canada teamed up with scientists and engineers from Chile to see if they could remedy the bleak situation. Their plastic sheet trick was so successful that it was hailed as a miracle akin to the patenting of desalinization. What's more, it produced an astonishing 3,000 gallons of water a day (that's about a gallon of potable water per square yard of the double-folded mesh)!
Each piece of plastic is about 40 feet long and 13 feet high. In all, the scientists strung 75 of these sheets together and then created troughs to collect the tiny droplets that formed on the plastic, which, in turn, carried the water to a storage tank. The nets, which cost about $400 each, can be used in arid zones all around the world. The system works best at altitudes of about 1,500 to 3,000 feet, where prevailing winds reach speeds between 5 and 20 miles per hour.

Omni also reports in their February, 1995 issue that the Korean-based Samsung Electronics Company is coming out with a television that is good for your health. The television, which emits infrared rays, reportedly makes onions grow faster and helps goldfish and tadpoles live longer. In order to benefit from the rays emitted by the new "bio-TV", all you need to do is sit in front of the television, the closer the better.
American scientists who are investigating Samsung's remarkable claims aren't sure yet what to make of them. Some scientists are saying the company may be on to something, while others believe Samsung's claims are exaggerated.
Although no date has been set for U.S. distribution of the new TV, Samsung has already spent $3.1 million developing it.
