Revolution begins quietly.
Revolution shapes our future.

A Number 8 White Soil Year
MAY (8 Soil Month / 8 Soil Year)
As of May 17, trace amounts of StarLink remain in 10% of corn samples.
A radically different view of the origin and destiny of the universe has been proposed by leading cosmologists. Beginning in the early 1970's, it was believed that the universe began with an explosion that has been expanding, ever since. If the universe contained sufficient matter, it would eventually re-collapse under the forces of its own gravity. If there was insufficient mass, it would expand forever and the stars would burn out.
Now, a new factor, called dark energy, has been added to the cosmic equation. Because of dark energy, the universe is not expanding at a constant rate. The expansion is accelerating! Therefore, the old "Big Bang" theory no longer applies.
Instead, it is now believed that the universe may be able to continue, indefinitely, creating new stars and galaxies as it goes. But, the new cosmology does not end there. Some scientists believe that there are more than one universal explosion. That there is a point "in 10-dimensional space" that has been creating Big Bangs forever, each a universe in its own. And this higher space will continue to create new universes forever.
This may appear to be of no practical importance, until we realize that cosmology does have an influence on our cultural mindset. For decades, we have been taught that our universe is not infinite; that there is an eventual dead end. As the new cosmology seeps into our subconscious, our collective outlook will become more open and more interested in a universe that is now defined as, boundless, procreative, and ever-providing! A new sense of wonder.
Once again, modern science moves one slot closer to the ancient teachings about an all powerful, eternal and infinitely providing Source. World without end. Amen!
The Motorola Corporation created a revolutionary semiconductor material. It has the potential to transform the computer, communication, semiconductor and many other industries. Until now, there has been no way to combine light-emitting semiconductors with silicon integrated circuits on a single chip.
The result is a chip that transmits information at rates that are hundreds of times faster than existing materials. This new technology could transform society to the same degree that computer silicon chips replaced the transistor radio technology of the 1960's.
Local criminal activities, like bank robbery, will also escalate.
Tech and Bio weapons will continue to proliferate.
Genetic engineering and cloning will become more commonplace.
Infectious and food related diseases will be an issue.
The International Space Station will inspire further exploration.
A new view of the formation of the universe will promote global optimism.
Energy prices and availability will effect millions.
Computer speeds will increase dramatically.
Surprising and interesting new inventions will appear.
Material prosperity will spread.
Unless we can get some good representation, the citizens of the United States will continue to be ignored, more and more, in favor of big business.
Many of the conditions, above, present difficulties and challenges. However, if we are willing to work for a brighter day and pray for peace, all can be resolved. If nothing else, 8 Soil has shown us that, for every act of senseless destruction, thousands of helping hands appear. Our hands!
Years (centuries!) of racial and social competition have created blocks of special interest, with little or no concern for the hopes of other's, beyond the immediate group. This system of intimidation has drawn attention away from the true foundations of lasting peace and prosperity for the generations; like fresh, clear water, clean air, renewable energy and natural quality foods.
As the immediate environment has become more polluted, individuals have lost their intuition, common sense and faith. In the extreme, many have become self-destructive and dangerous to others; especially, to those not sharing the same common interests. This is the degeneration of humankind. Global crimes can be reduced by police action. However, the situation will not be resolved until there is enough good quality air, food and water for everyone.
This understanding is not limited to macrobiotic opinion. The mathematician and sociologist, Thomas Malthus, first predicted this in the early 19th century.
