Stick To Your Principles Despite Apparent Outcome.

Nobody knows EXACTLY what's gonna happen throughout The Unveiling. There will be surprises. Unexpected plot twists. Live according to your highest ideals as much as possible. I feel better when I do this. Much better! Don't grind your teeth because of how you think things will play out. Details will elude your ability to predict them. You just can't know. Unless you have a crystal ball or something. Simply do you. It's all cumulative. Play your part in the universal symphony. It adds richness. Thickens up the soup. Yum.

I would not have predicted that an Oak Park gardener would end up in Time Magazine and draw national attention to the right to garden on your front lawn free of interference from city regulations.

Everybody dies. It's the quality of living that matters. How will you live?

Long-Term Grid Kill (Solar Storm) + Nuclear Plants = 442 Meltdowns Worldwide?

The Fukushima nuclear disaster has brought attention to the fact that nuclear power plants become ticking time bombs if the grid goes down for an extended period of time.

Do an internet search for "solar storm nuclear power plants." Sift through the results and ponder how we might avoid the premature end of planetary life if something like a solar storm were to take out the electrical grid. Many experts on space weather & whatnot say that another 1859-style solar storm (or greater) is a given. Not if, but when. Most likely in 2012 or 2013.

Is this something we should leave up to our leaders? Can we trust them to take care of this imminent problem? What should we do as conscious and compassionate humans?

I wish more people were willing to talk about this and work toward solutions together. Modern society has harnessed the energy of the Sun through nuclear power generation, and now the Sun is poised to eliminate the control we have over this energy.

I'll probably come back to this topic later.
