The past might always repeat itself, like in concept of cycles. Is the past forgotten that we can never really move forward? Does that memory get lost? Or do we all really know its just easy to stick with “old habits”? Energy doesn’t die, it transforms. The old energy exists today- the vibes and waves are still flowing from “the beginning” (of this cycle of creation) the endless creation and recreation of elements, gas, stars, galaxies, and black space….etc. How many cycles has there been- maybe we’re 55th- maybe 55,555,555???? Or maybe this is the first and the last?
How many types of life lived here on earth? We aren’t the first, from what we know- we had dinosaurs roaming the earth millions of years ago. The earth is 4.54 Billion years old! Are we descendants of an ancient alien race? Where did we come from? Who is the bookkeeper?
We need to wake up and realize we are spinning on a sphere of solid and liquid rock! The inner layers of our earth are as hot as the surface of the sun! Without the liquid outer core we wouldn’t have a magnetic field to protect our atmosphere and hence not be able to support life on earth.

Solar Actvity- X Class Flares
The sun is currently undergoing “solar maximum” — a period of peak activity in its 11 year solar cycle. So far, solar max has been mediocre at best, but as this explosive trio has just shown us, don’t count the sun out quite yet — we could be in for a period of rather inclement space weather courtesy of AR 1748.
Stay tuned! Space weather…!!!
Mission Control! Space jump!
An Austrian daredevil hopes to make a new record-breaking attempt Sunday to jump from the edge of space, days after his initial bid was aborted at the last minute due to gusting winds.
Felix Baumgartner will be transported up to 23 miles above the Earth beneath an enormous balloon, before launching himself into the void, aiming to become the first human to break the sound barrier in free fall.
After an extended delay do to gusty weather, it is hoped that on Sunday, Oct. 14, 2012, daredevil Felix Baumgartner will be carried high above Roswell, N.M., in an attempt to break the high-altitude skydive record that was set 52 years ago by U.S. Air Force Captain Joe Kittinger. Discovery Channel and Discovery News will be covering the event LIVE. Follow this special Wide Angle investigating the history of high-altitude skydives, some of the technology involved in Baumgartner’s record attempt and links to our live coverage on the day.
