3. Forward: The Comet NEAT

A United Perspective

Sometimes when I’m looking at the news and observing Mr. Bush talking about disarming Iraq,it seems like a very bad movie, that soon the lights will go up, and the audience will file out of the theater. It’s the same way I felt when I used to look at the pictorial history books of World War II that my stepfather had on our bookshelves. The horrors of that war wrecked his health and affected him for life. (He survived the Bataan Death March in 1942 and was in a concentration camp for the rest of the war.) Some of the photos in those books were of innocent children lying in rubble in the street with blood oozing from their lifeless bodies. Many were of the caged Jews in concentration camps ... and the aftermath when the horrors of what went on there came to light. It is the same way I felt in school when reading about the crusades led by "Christians" who were trying to bring the faith forcefully to "heathens." Somehow it seemed an oxymoron to kill in the name of Christianity. It turned my stomach. It was also the way I felt observing the devastation at Waco, the Oklahoma City bombing and the World Trade Center attack. Horrors so incredible, it is hard to imagine anyone could be so cruel as to initiate it. Always it is because the perpetrator does not agree with the victims’ viewpoint or way of life. Or they want something the other has.

One of the results to justify this war Mr. Bush seems impatient to start is that we will liberate the Iraqi people giving them a better life built around (our) western values. (or is it their oil?) I’m sure the crusaders thought the heathens they were conquering would be better off as Christians ... it was for "their own good." (Tell that to the ones who died in the process.) Disarming a madman is one thing; but occupying and forcing a culture on a nation is quite another. It has been said we would have to have a military presence there for a long time. We are still a presence in Germany. What is going on here? Is there a systematic taking over of country after country until there is a global America? What a plethora of rich ethnic diversity would be sacrificed!

Further, there is another thing that has been bothering me. We are always very proudly proclaiming our American freedoms ..particularly the one about free speech. One would think that if we really believe in our freedoms and grant them to each other, we would listen politely to each other and accept the fact that there are differences of opinion. However, I’ve observed the most irrational phenomenon of people getting upset and angry with people who don’t agree with them... like it’s a personal affront! Good thing we have safeguards to protect our freedom of speech, or our friends and neighbors would become crusaders "for our own good" and force the "right" viewpoint on us! You may wonder why I’m championing diversity when the title of this is A United Perspective. After working with astrology for over thirty years, I’ve come to see people as variations of a model that is everywhere the same. Believe it or not, after all this time, it is hard for me to see much difference in the cares and concerns of a young man in Japan, an American teenager, a European grandmother, a Catholic Priest or an Arabian businessman. I’ve had consultations with these and just about every other kind of person imaginable. When we get to the bottom line, we are all human. We all have a birth chart-- each individual ever born has one. If an astrologer looks at a chart, s/he cannot tell if it’s the chart of a man, woman, American, African, cat, or wedding. All the
components of the chart are the same. It is, to me, a metaphor of our oneness.
Further, we are all made of the same "stuff". If you reduce us to a collection of chemicals, we are all the same.That "stuff" is sub-atomic particles composing a field of substance that permeates everything everywhere. It is the basic component of everything that exists. Further, everything that exists is interconnected and affected by this field. When a thought or emotion is generated, it travels through this field in waves and affects everyone everywhere. I won’t bore you with all this in detail, but you might want to look at a book called The Field by Lynne McTaggart. (I may have mentioned it
before.) Therefore, if we are all inter-connected, and each of us affects all others no matter how minutely, then we are all one. If we are all one, then what we do to others, we do to ourselves. If we initiate a war, we are sure to reap devastating consequences, not only karmically, but also in retardation of our own spiritual evolution. Defending ourselves is one thing, but initiating a war is insane, if we really understand how the universe works and the interconnectedness of all things.

I have said that the USA chart is aligning very similarly to World War I, but that does not mean we have to repeat the past. Every time we evolve a little higher, we have the choice to respond with more love and compassion than before. I’m mindful of a Star Trek episode in which Captain Kirk was struggling with a reptilian alien. He was in a position to kill the alien but decided not to. A "being" appeared and commented that his action revealed "advancement" in his barbaric species. I often wonder if Gene Roddenberry was a prophet!

A Call for Stories
As most of you know, I’m working on my second book. I want it to be a very easy to read and engaging book. Nothing does that better than stories from the lives of people. I would like to hear of your experiences regarding a change of heart in your perception of an astrological sign’s qualities. In other words, was there a time when you had a conception of a sign being a certain way that you perceived as unacceptable, opposite from you, conflicting with your viewpoint or down right distasteful? Then, was there later an event, a revelation, or a holy instant when you saw the necessity of that sign’s qualities to complete the mandala of human perfection? What did it for you? All stories will be anonymous, and there is no compensation for it. But, if you’d like to help, I’d appreciate it.

The Comet NEAT
Planet-Sized Comet Headed This Way?
By Edgar J. Steele 2-24-3

After a great misery for mankind an even greater approaches. The great cycle of the centuries is renewed: It will rain blood, milk, famine, war and disease. In the sky will be seen a fire, dragging a tail of sparks. ---Nostradamus, Century 2, Quatrain 46 (1654)A huge comet is rounding the sun, a comet twice the size of Jupiter (from tip to end of tail -ed) (about 22 times the size of earth). Some have seen it at sunrise and sunset; otherwise, it is not visible because it is occluded by solar glare. Essentially, it is coming from behind the sun and was first observed by NASA less than two months ago. NASA's solar observatory has released a number of pictures of this comet, but those stopped just as a huge coronal mass ejection (an event which is to the hydrogen bomb as the hydrogen bomb is to a firecracker) erupted from the sun toward the comet. Some call these things "sunspots." This comet is passing within 9 million miles of the solar
surface. In celestial terms, that is a very near miss. You haven't heard about
this, have you? Remember the hullabaloo over Hale/Bopp and Levy/Shoemaker? They
were pikers by comparison with what has been dubbed Comet "NEAT." Why all the
silence this time? I have read a good deal of speculation on several different internet sites. Some see it as biblical prophecy fulfilled (see Revelations - you might agree). Some consider this to be "Nibiru" or "Planet X," foretold by the Mayans as passing through the solar system every 3600 years or so. Some consider this simply to be an awesome photo opportunity. Some say the strange weather on Earth lately is the result of an effect caused by the sun which in turn is responding to Comet NEAT. Electromagnetic fields reach hundreds of millions of miles into space, you see, and are generated by all celestial objects. Influences occur at distances far in excess of that between the sun and comet Neat or, for that matter, between Earth and comet Neat. The sun has a
regularly-repeating solar "sunspot" activity cycle of approximately 11 years. 2000 was to have been the most recent peak. Solar > activity, rather than dropping off in year 12, as it always has, has continued to rise ever since. Earth's magnetic field has been weakening in an accelerating fashion of > late. The North Pole, which wanders anyway, has traveled almost as far in the past 20 years as it did in the 100 years prior to that, when it was located in Canada's northern Yukon Territory. Some hypothesize that Earth's poles reverse when its magnetic field reaches zero. The geological record proves the poles have shifted many times down through the history of the Earth (metal flakes in lava align with the magnetic field, to be frozen in place when the lava cools, you see, just like the needle in a compass). Coincidence? Perhaps. Maybe it is nothing. Maybe it is something. If something, it could be the most significant occurrence in recorded human history. Generally, the concern is not that Comet NEAT will strike Earth or even come near us (though I have yet to see a good description of its path relative to Earth). Rather, the concern is for the effect upon us through the electromagnetic interaction between it and Earth and the Sun. There is a secondary concern that something this huge could have smaller objects following in its wake, or that pieces of it broke off
during the massive solar flare when it passed near the Sun, pieces that might find their way to Earth. "Planet buster" asteroids can be as small as 1/3 mile in diameter.

Just five days ago, a Rand Corporation (government think tank) scientist, Dr. Geoffrey Summer, publicly stated that secrecy would be the best option if it were discovered that an asteroid were about to hit the earth: "Overreaction not just by the public but by policy-makers scurrying around before the thing actually hits because we can't do anything about it anyway ... to a large extent you are better off not adding to your social costs." Go here for one of NASA's official web pages carrying photographs of this comet:

Something tells me you should take a look right now, though. Who knows if this will be available even tomorrow? For the moment, my question is, "Why is there no media coverage of Comet NEAT?" Of course, we all know how paranoid I am. "I didn't say it would be easy. I just said it would be the truth." - Morpheus
