Pluto in Aquarius: The Singularity arrives on schedule

6144269_s

This article in Business Insider caught my eye: We will reach the singularity in the timeframe most experts predict. From that point on you’re going to see that the top species will no longer be humans, but machines.” These are the words of Louis Del Monte, physicist, entrepreneur, and author of “The Artificial Intelligence Revolution.” Del Monte spoke to us over the phone about his thoughts surrounding artificial intelligence and the singularity, an indeterminate point in the future when machine intelligence will outmatch not only your own intelligence, but the world’s combined human […]

Evolutionary implications of the holographic universe

Holographic Universe

Modern science is turning our notion of what constitutes the Universe on its ear, and nowhere is this more evident than the theory that the Universe itself is a hologram.  Beginning with quantum physics and particle/wave theory, which suggested in the early part of the 20th century that the Universe is operating on many different levels than our three-dimensional reality would suggest.  One of its early proponents, Niehls Bohr, wrote: “Anyone who is not shocked by quantum theory has not understood it”. I make no pretense of understanding quantum theory, […]

Scientists create synthetic DNA

Jupiter and Uranus are preparing to conjoin in the sky, and the combination of Jupiter’s expansion with Uranian innovation has often been associated with technological and scientific advancement.  Uranus is the planet that inspires “Eureka” moments where we conceive of things that were previously inconceivable. Scientists in Maryland led by Dr. Craig Venter have now created the first living cell controlled entirely by synthetic DNA.  You can find the details here. This raises all kinds of questions – not only ethical and moral, but about the very nature of creation […]

Leonardo daVinci and finding darkness in light

Moon in clouds

I found this article through the Red Ice Creations website, and it brought up an interesting point for me. As with photography and art, light and shadow can define an object, area, or even a planet. Placing yourself in a specific location can cause an object to appear different, thus your perspective of an object that’s unchanging, becomes fluid. Leonardo Da Vinci’s perspective, although appropriately geared more towards an artistic sense, heavily relied on the Earth and the planets themselves. His works, more importantly his paintings, always reflected the correct […]

The astrology of the Iceland volcano

iceland volcano

Beginning late in December, with Saturn and Pluto aligned in a tight challenging square formation,  seismic activity began to activate the Eyjafjallojokull volcano area.  The challenging square formation creates a buildup of energy that necessitates a release, often an explosion or crisis of some kind.  Obviously, the Saturn/Pluto square has not caused volcanic eruptions everywhere, but this is an interesting coincidence. Pluto is the god of destruction and regeneration, and as it travels through the earthy sign of Capricorn I have long predicted an upsurge in volcanic and earthquake activity […]

Religion, Science & the Solstice

I really like this article that compares the spiritual observation of the Winter Solstice with the observations of science: Religion and science occupy separate and opposed spheres, no? Not to our distant forebears, from whom all of our illumination festivals derive. They could not afford the facile dichotomy between the sacred and the profane that defines thinking since the Enlightenment, when people of the West sought to free themselves from the bane of superstition. For most of history, though, religion was not taken to be a flight from rationality, but […]

Hadron Collider Sets New Record

Nothing says “Uranus changing direction” than the “shattering of an energy record” by a gigantic piece of technology that shoots protons.  (Uranus rules electromagnetic energy AND technology, and when it changes direction like it does this week it demands our attention.) “The world’s largest particle accelerator has set a new record in matter-smashing.” The LHC is designed to smash proton beams into one another at 7 TeV to help simulate the sort of conditions present just after the Big Bang. In doing this, scientists hope to answer some of the […]

13 things scientists don’t understand

I love a good mystery, and you probably do too.  Check out these 13 THINGS SENT TO TRY US from Michael Brooks via New Scientist – it’s almost enough to make you think there is more to this Universe than scientists can understand: 1.  Radiation left from the Big Bang is still glowing in the sky – in a mysterious and controversial pattern. 2.  Something unseeable and far bigger than anything in the known universe is hauling a group of galaxies towards it at inexplicable speed. 3.  Tens of millions of years […]

Blowing the Mind of Science

Fractal-Universe

The scientific world as we know it continues to be turned on its ear with new (Uranian) discoveries, fulfilling my prophecy in the November Skywatch article where I wrote “A sextile from Jupiter (abundance and optimism) to Uranus (innovation and insight) is beginning to form at this time which will start to excite us with new ideas and thoughts for the future.” Like this one: Something may be out there. Way out there. On the outskirts of creation, unknown, unseen “structures” are tugging on our universe like cosmic magnets, a controversial […]

The New Army Mind-Meld

Shall we file this under Chiron conjunct Neptune in Aquarius, where the boundaries between technology (Aquarius) and the human mind/body connection (Chiron) are blurred beyond distinction?  And the mutual reception between Uranus in Pisces and Neptune (ruler of Pischttp://astrodynamics.net/wp-admin/post-new.php?unfoldmenu=1es) in Aquarius (ruled by Uranus)?  The boundaries between technology and humanity continue to dissolve in a very Neptunian/Piscean way. The Army has given a team of University of California researchers a $4 million grant to study the foundations of “synthetic telepathy.” But unlike old-school mind-melds, this seemingly psychic communication would be computer-mediated. .
