Zero Point and the Schumann Resonance

 

Gregg Braden is currently traveling around the United States and in the media, telling of the scientific proof of the Earth passing through the Photon Belt and the slowing of the Earths rotation. At the same time there is an increase in the resonant frequency of the Earth (Schumann Resonance). When the Earth stops its rotation and the resonance frequency reaches 13 cycles we will be at a zero point magnetic field. The Earth will be stopped, and in 2 or 3 days it will start turning again in the opposite direction. This will produce a reversal in the magnetic fields around the earth and so forth.

Geophysical Condition #1: Earth’s Rising Base Frequency

Earth’s background base frequency, or “heartbeat,” (called Schumann resonance, or SR) is rising dramatically. Though it varies among geographical regions, for decades the overall measurement was 7.8 cycles per second. This was once thought to be a constant; global military communications developed on this frequency. Recent reports set the rate at over 11 cycles, and climbing. Science doesn’t know why, or what to make of it. Gregg Braden found data collected by Norwegian and Russian researchers on this; it’s not widely reported in the U.S. (The only reference to SR to be found in the Seattle Library reference section, is tied to the weather. Science acknowledges SR as a sensitive indicator of temperature variations and worldwide weather conditions. Braden believes the fluctuating SR may be a factor in the severe storms, floods, and weather of recent years.)

Geophysical Condition #2: Earth’s Diminishing Magnetic Field

While earth’s “pulse” rate is rising, her magnetic field strength, on the other hand, is declining. According to Professor Bannerjee of the University of New Mexico, the field has lost up to half its intensity in the last 4,000 years. And because a forerunner of magnetic polar reversals is this field strength, Prof. Bannerjee believes that another reversal is due. Braden believes that because these cyclical Shifts are associated with reversals, Earth’s geological record indicating magnetic reversals also marks previous Shifts in history. And, within the enormous time scale represented, there were quite a few of them.

What is a Schumann Resonance?

Believe it or not, the Earth behaves like an enormous electric circuit. The atmosphere is actually a weak conductor and if there were no sources of charge, its existing electric charge would diffuse away in about 10 minutes. There is a ‘cavity ‘defined by the surface of the Earth and the inner edge of the ionosphere 55 kilometers up. At any moment, the total charge residing in this cavity is 500,000 Coulombs. There is a vertical current flow between the ground and the ionosphere of 1 – 3 x 10^-12 Amperes per square meter. The resistance of the atmosphere is 200 Ohms. The voltage potential is 200,000 Volts. There are about 1000 lightning storms at any given moment worldwide. Each produces 0.5 to 1 Ampere and these collectively account for the measured current flow in the Earth’s ‘electromagnetic’ cavity.

The Schumann Resonances are quasi standing wave electromagnetic waves that exist in this cavity. Like waves on a spring, they are not present all the time, but have to be ‘excited’ to be observed. They are not caused by anything internal to the Earth, its crust or its core. They seem to be related to electrical activity in the atmosphere, particularly during times of intense lightning activity. They occur at several frequencies between 6 and 50 cycles per second; specifically 7.8, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39 and 45 Hertz, with a daily variation of about +/- 0.5 Hertz. So long as the properties of Earth’s electromagnetic cavity remains about the same, these frequencies remain the same. Presumably there is some change due to the solar sunspot cycle as the Earth’s ionosphere changes in response to the 11-year cycle of solar activity. Schumann resonances are most easily seen between 2000 and 2200 UT.

Given that the earth’s atmosphere carries a charge, a current and a voltage, it is not surprising to find such electromagnetic waves. The resonant properties of this terrestrial cavity were first predicted by the German physicist W. O. Schumann between 1952 and 1957, and first detected by Schumann and Konig in 1954. The first spectral representation of this phenomenon was prepared by Balser and Wagner in 1960. Much of the research in the last 20 years has been conducted by the Department of the Navy who investigate Extremely Low Frequency communication with submarines.

For more information, see: “Handbook of Atmospheric Electrodynamics, vol. I”, by Hans Volland, 1995 published by the CRC Press. Chapter 11 is entirely on Schumann Resonances and is written by Davis Campbell at the Geophysical Institute, University of Alaska, Fairbanks AK, 99775. There is also a history of this research and an extensive bibliography.

POSSIBLE OUTCOMES

1. Time will appear to speed up as we approach Zero Point. A 24 hour day will seem to about 16 hours or less. Remember the Schumann Resonance (or “heart beat” of Mother Earth) has been 7.8 cycles for thousands of years, but has been rising since 1980. It is at about 12 cycles at present. It stops at 13 cycles.

2. Zero Point or the Shift of the Ages has been predicted by ancient peoples for thousands of years. There have been many shifts including the one that always occurs every 13,000 years at each half of the 26,000 year, Procession of the Equinox.

3. Zero Point or a flip of the magnetic poles will probably happen soon, within the next few years. It could possibly synchronise with the Earth’s four cycle biorhythm that occurs every 20 years on the 12th of August. The next occurance is 12th August 2003. The Philadelphia Experiment and Montauk Project (secret military time travelling) both locked up to the 12th August/20 year biorhythm.

4. It is said that after Zero Point the Sun will rise in the west and set in the east, approx. Past occurances of this change have been found in ancient records.

5. Interestingly, the New World Order plan to be in power by 2003. This may or may not happen, depending on many factors and agendas. Stay centred and follow your intuition.

6. The Zero Point flip will probably introduce us to the 4th dimension. Here, everything we think or desire will instantly manifest. This includes love and fear. Our INTENTION will be of utmost importance.

7. Most technology that we know will cease to operate. Possible exceptions could be technology based on so called “Zero Point” or free energy.

8. Our physical body is changing as we approach Zero Point. Our DNA is being “upgraded” to 12 strand. A new light body is being created. We are becoming more intuitive.

9. The Mayan Calendar predicted all the changes that are occuring now. They say we are going beyond technology and back to the natural cycles of nature and the Universe. By 2012 we will have entered the 5th Dimension (after the flip to the 4th Dimension at Zero Point).

10. All this information is not fearful. Be prepared for changes that will bring in the new age of light. We are going beyond money and time where fear based concepts are totally dissolved.

MEASURING CHANGES IN THE SCHUMANN’S RESONANCES

Earth’s background base frequency, or “heartbeat,” (SR) fluctuates and may be rising dramatically.

Though it varies among geographical regions, for decades the overall measurement was 7.8 cycles per second. This was once thought to be a constant and so global military communications were developed using this frequency. Recent reports set the rate at over 11 cycles, and climbing. Science doesn’t know why, what to make of it, or even if these reports are credible.

Gregg Braden claims to have found data collected by Norwegian and Russian researchers, saying it’s not widely reported in the U.S. These authors have been unable to substantiate this. He suggests the only reference to SR to be found in the Seattle Library reference section is tied to the weather. Science acknowledges SR as a sensitive indicator of temperature variations and worldwide weather conditions.

Braden believes the fluctuating SR may be a factor in the severe storms, floods, and weather of recent years.

As previously stated, the Earth behaves like an enormous electric circuit. The atmosphere is actually a weak conductor and if there were no sources of charge, its existing electric charge would diffuse away in about 10 minutes. There is a ‘cavity’ defined by the surface of the Earth and the inner edge of the ionosphere, whose height also fluctuates somewhat. At any moment, the total charge residing in this cavity is reported at 500,000 Coulombs.

There is a vertical current flow between the ground and the ionosphere described in the literature at 1 – 3 x 10^-12 Amperes per square meter. The resistance of the atmosphere is 200 Ohms. The voltage potential is 200,000 Volts. There are about 1000 lightning storms at any given moment worldwide. Each produces 0.5 to 1 Ampere and these collectively account for the measured current flow in the Earth’s ‘electromagnetic’ cavity.

The Schumann Resonances are quasi standing wave electromagnetic waves that exist in this cavity. Like waves on a string, they must be potentiated or excited in order to be observed. They are not caused by internal terrestrial factors, or Earth’s crustal movements, or its core which does produce magnetic fields. SR is generated around electrical activity in the atmosphere, particularly emerging from intense lightning activity.

While the properties of Earth’s electromagnetic cavity remains about the same, these frequencies remain the same. Presumably there is some change due to the solar sunspot cycle as the Earth’s ionosphere changes in response to flares and mass ejections during the 11-year cycle of solar activity. High energy charges coming off the sun brush across the upper atmosphere, ionizing gases in the upper atmosphere.

Since the earth’s atmosphere carries a charge, a current and a voltage, it is not surprising to find such electromagnetic waves.

The resonant properties of this terrestrial cavity were first mathematically predicted by German physicist W. O. Schumann between 1952 and 1957, and subsequently detected by him with Konig in 1954.

Much of the research in recent decades has been conducted by the Department of the Navy who use Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) signals for communication with submarines. Of course, little attention is given by defense contractors to issues of psychobiological health and well being.

Between the almost perfectly conducting terrestrial surface and ionosphere, a resonating cavity is formed. Broadband electromagnetic impulses, like those from lightning flashes, fill this cavity, and create globally enveloping Schumann resonances ranging from frequencies 5 – 50 Hz (Schumann, 1952; Bliokh et al., 1980; Sentman, 1987). The nominal average frequencies observed are 7.8, 14, 20, 26, 33, 39, and 45 Hz with slight diurnal variation (Sentman and Fraser, 1991).

Standard magnetometers are not able to measure the Schumann resonances. Even the search coil (i.e., pulsation) magnetometers, most often sampled at about 0.1 Hz, do not allow such studies. Special equipment is thus needed (see, e.g., Sentman and Fraser, 1991).

Current findings suggest,
The Schumann Resonances are actually observed by experiment to emerge at several frequencies related to brainwaves. They range between 6 and 50 cycles per second, specifically 7.8 (alpha), 14 (low beta), 20 (mid beta), 26 (high beta), 33 (high beta), 39 (gamma) and 45Hz (gamma), with a daily variation of about +/- 0.5 Hertz.

7.83 is the strongest of the seven resonances, in the alpha brainwave range. If the rise in resonance continues, this primary resonance, the earth pulse, changes from sub band low alpha (7-10Hz) to sub band high alpha (10-12Hz), perhaps influencing our ability to deeply relax, balance and integrate our mind/body connection. It could influence REM sleep and dreaming. If it continues to rise, it will breach the threshold into ‘fast’ beta activity. Low beta (12-15Hz) is associated with lack of focused attention, and low beta can even reflect Attention Deficit Disorder.

The amplitude (i.e. intensity) of the Schumann resonance is not constant, and appears to be extremely dependent upon tropical (and hence global) temperature. Indeed preliminary results seem to indicate that a mere one degree increase in temperature seems to be correlated with a doubling of the SR. This could not be more significant, as it is unknown what psychobiological effect these fluctuations could have on humans.
One of the most crucial questions in science today centers on whether or not the planetary temperature is rising, falling, or remaining unchanged.

Recently global warming has been acknowledged by most in the field, and technology is implicated. On one hand, analyses of thermometer measurements of near-surface global (land and sea) air temperatures suggest the planet has been warming in recent decades. But satellite measurements of the planet’s lower atmospheric temperature show little perceptible warming from 1979 to 1998.

Temperature data from weather balloons launched throughout the world reveal variations and trends in global temperatures that correspond to those found in the satellite based measurements. Analysis of pressure thickness measurements from these same balloons also shows no warming in recent decades. It’s no wonder we have such an ongoing “heated debate” about the recent temperature history of the earth! Most lay people know and recognize their local weather is markedly different than past decades.

Scientists have suggested lately that another method may exist to accurately monitor planetary temperature. The idea is simple, though the underlying physics of the processes are complex. The method is based on the well known fact that thunderstorms and lightning strokes in many parts of the world are directly related to lower-atmospheric air temperatures. Higher temperatures produce more lightning strokes, while lower temperatures tend to depress lightning activity.

Lightning discharges occurring anywhere in the world produce electromagnetic pulses that spread away from the source. Much of the energy is quickly degraded, but some of the energy the lightning produces falls in the extremely low-frequency, long-wavelength domain of the electromagnetic spectrum. At these long wavelengths, the energy from a lightning stroke is able to circumnavigate the earth without serious degradation.

This low-frequency/long-wavelength energy creates SR signals which can be detected throughout the world.

Understanding SR waves requires a basic appreciation of the vertical structure of the atmosphere. In that upper reaches of the ionosphere, incoming ultraviolet radiation and soft X-rays affect atoms or bonded groups of atoms, causing gains or losses of negatively charged electrons. This interaction creates an environment of positively and negatively charged particles of the high atmosphere that, among other interesting qualities, can readily conduct electricity.

The bulk of our insultating atmosphere lies between two conducting layers of earth’s surface and the lower boundary of the ionosphere. This spherically concentric cavity, called the earth-ionosphere cavity, is bounded by those electrically conducting walls. Again, lightning discharges within the cavity produce electromagnetic pulses that spread away from the source in the extremely low-frequency domain, and the conductive walls of the cavity produce some interesting effects for the low-frequency energy.

For example, energy with a frequency near 7.5 Hz (7.5 cycles per second) would have a wavelength of about 40,000 km (recall that wavelength = speed of light / frequency). Because this wavelength equals the circumference of the earth, the energy is able to circumnavigate the earth–ionosphere cavity without serious degradation. The 100 or so lightning bolts occurring each second in the 2,000 concurrent thunderstorms around the world contribute to the energy in the 7.5 Hz portion of the spectrum, which can be measured anywhere on the planet. It is these resonance properties of the global spherical capacitor or resonator that Schumann first predicted over 40 years ago.

In an article published in Science, M.I.T. scientist Earle Williams (1992) constructed a powerful argument that links Schumann resonances to convection and ultimately to widespread tropical and/or global temperature. Williams concluded that a 1°C warming in the tropics should result in a fourfold increase in lightning activity, and he presented empirical data from several locations to support his conclusion.

He noted that any measurable parameter nonlinearly related to temperature could be extremely useful in assessing the most subtle changes in global temperature.

Others have presented different sensitivities:
Price (1993) concluded 1°C warming would increase global lightning activity by 7 percent
Price and Rind (1994) found a 5 percent to 6 percent increase per 1°C sensitivity
Reeve and Toumi (1998) found the sensitivity to be near 40 percent per 1°C
Regardless of the exact sensitivity, all scientists conclude that lightning increases for even moderate amounts of warming worldwide.

More lightning generates a stronger SR, which may be useful in monitoring planetary temperature. The link between SR and the number of lightning strokes is supported by a mean day–night temperature fluctuation pattern. A diurnal pattern of worldwide lightning exists with three maxima recorded regularly due to the large number of mid- to late-afternoon thunderstorms in land areas of Africa, South America, and Southeast Asia and Australia.

Storms typically are first generated in Asia, later they form in Africa, and later each day they congeal in South America.

Global warming has been linked to suspected rise in SR, and is a threat to its synchronization with our brainwaves. Small changes in temperature pump up into large signals in ELF resonances. Long-term monitoring and study of global climate changes via measurements of extremely low frequency (ELF) electromagnetic waves needs to be studied more closely.

Monitoring the intensity and frequencies of the lightning-induced ELF SR could help monitor changes in the Earth’s climate over time.

One program proposed to set up two or three widely separated ELF field sites. One suggested site was a permanent SR monitoring station in the Negev desert, Israel. Members of this proposal want to develop, test, and install the appropriate software for automatic electromagnetic monitoring and preliminary processing of the incoming data. They suggested simultaneous measurements could be made in Russia and Sweden to test the global nature of the ELF signals measured in Israel.

Continuous ELF data measured in Israel could be compared with other ELF data sets from other locations around the world such as Hungary, USA, or Japan. Furthermore, the relevant global climate data sets, such as surface temperature, satellite observations of the global distribution of deep convection, and global atmospheric water vapor measurements can be used for comparisons with SR data to check the reliability of the “global thermometer” hypothesis.

A systematic study of SR parameters during high-energy particle precipitation events has also been presented. Protons and electrons with energies above 1 MeV ionize the upper boundary of the Earth-ionosphere cavity, leading to an increase of the resonance frequency and a decrease of the damping of the first Schumann resonance, as derived from measurements at Arrival Heights, Antarctica.

The study used the nine strongest solar proton events of the past Solar Cycle 22 and high-energy electrons emitted periodically from co-rotating interaction regions in the solar wind during 1994-1995. The variation of the SR parameters is in qualitative agreement with current theories of Schumann resonances. The study also shows that high-energy particle precipitation – solar ejecta – is not the only relevant source affecting SR parameters.

The reported findings constitute a so far little-explored aspect of solar-terrestrial interaction.
