Traditionally, spirituality refers to a religious process of re-formation which "aims to recover the original shape of man," oriented at "the image of God" as exemplified by the founders and sacred texts of the religions of the world. In modern times the emphasis is on subjective experience of a sacred dimension and the "deepest values and meanings by which people live," often in a context separate from organized religious institutions. Modern spirituality typically includes a belief in a supernatural (beyond the known and observable) realm, personal growth, a quest for an ultimate/sacred meaning, religious experience, or an encounter with one's own "inner dimension."
The meaning of spirituality has developed and expanded over time, and various connotations can be found alongside each other. The term "spirituality" originally developed within early Christianity, referring to a life oriented toward the Holy Spirit. During late medieval times the meaning broadened to include mental aspects of life, while in modern times the term both spread to other religious traditions and broadened to refer to a wider range of experience, including a range of esoteric traditions.

Ancient astronauts

Ancient astronauts” (or “ancient aliens”) refers to the pseudoscientific idea that intelligent extraterrestrial beings visited Earth and made contact with humans in antiquity and prehistoric times. Proponents suggest that this contact influenced the development of modern cultures, technologies, and religions. A common position is that deities from most, if not all, religions are extraterrestrial in origin, and that advanced technologies brought to Earth by ancient astronauts were interpreted as evidence of divine status by early humans.

Ancient Astronauts Theory - http://Alamongordo.Com

The idea that ancient astronauts existed is not taken seriously by academics, and has received no credible attention in peer reviewed studies. Well-known proponents in the latter half of the 20th century who have written numerous books or appear regularly in mass media include Erich von Däniken, Zecharia Sitchin, Robert K. G. Temple, Giorgio A. Tsoukalos and David Hatcher Childress.

Proponents of the ancient astronaut hypotheses often maintain that humans are either descendants or creations of extraterrestrial intelligence (ETI) who landed on Earth thousands of years ago. An associated idea is that humans evolved independently, but that much of human knowledge, religion, and culture came from extraterrestrial visitors in ancient times, in that ancient astronauts acted as a “mother culture”. Some ancient astronaut proponents also believe that travelers from outer space, referred to as “astronauts” (or “spacemen”) built many of the structures on Earth (such as Egyptian pyramids and the Moai stone heads of Easter Island) or aided humans in building them.
Various terms are used to reference claims about ancient astronauts, such as ancient aliens, ancient ufonauts, ancient space pilots, paleocontact, astronaut- or alien gods, or paleo- or Bible-SETI (search for extraterrestrial intelligence)

Ancient astronauts hypothesis of creation

Proponents argue that the evidence for ancient astronauts comes from documentary gaps in historical and archaeological records, and they also maintain that absent or incomplete explanations of historical or archaeological data point to the existence of ancient astronauts. The evidence is argued to include archaeological artifacts that they deem anachronistic, or beyond the accepted technical capabilities of the historical cultures with which they are associated. These are sometimes referred to as “out-of-place artifacts”; and include artwork and legends which are interpreted in a modern sense as depicting extraterrestrial contact or technologies.

Scholars have responded that gaps in contemporary knowledge are not evidence of the existence of ancient astronauts, and that advocates have not provided any convincing anecdotal or physical evidence of an artifact that might conceivably be the product of ETI contact. According to astrophysicist Carl Sagan, “In the long litany of ‘ancient astronaut’ pop archaeology, the cases of apparent interest have perfectly reasonable alternative explanations, or have been misreported, or are simple prevarications, hoaxes and distortions”

Hypothesis origins and proponents

Paleocontact or “ancient astronaut” narratives first appeared in the early science fiction of the late 19th to early 20th century. The idea was proposed in earnest by Harold T. Wilkins in 1954; it received some consideration as a serious hypothesis during the 1960s. Critics of the theory emerged throughout the 1970s, discrediting Von Daniken’s theory. Ufologists separated the idea from the UFO controversy. By the early 1980s little remaining support of the theory could be found.

Shklovski and Sagan

In their 1966 book Intelligent Life in the Universe, astrophysicists I. S. Shklovski and Carl Sagan devote a chapter to arguments that scientists and historians should seriously consider the possibility that extraterrestrial contact occurred during recorded history. However, Shklovski and Sagan stressed that these ideas were speculative and unproven.

Shklovski and Sagan argued that sub-lightspeed interstellar travel by extraterrestrial life was a certainty when considering technologies that were established or feasible in the late 1960s; that repeated instances of extraterrestrial visitation to Earth were plausible; and that pre-scientific narratives can offer a potentially reliable means of describing contact with aliens.

Sagan illustrates this hypothesis by citing the 1786 expedition of French explorer Jean-François de Galaup, comte de La Pérouse, which made the earliest first contact between European and Tlingit cultures. The contact story was preserved as an oral tradition by the preliterate Tlingit. Over a century after its occurrence it was then recorded by anthropologist George T. Emmons. Although it is framed in a Tlingit cultural and spiritual paradigm, the story remained an accurate telling of the 1786 encounter.

According to Sagan, this proved how “under certain circumstances, a brief contact with an alien civilization will be recorded in a re-constructible manner. He further states that the reconstruction will be greatly aided if 1) the account is committed to written record soon after the event; 2) a major change is effected in the contacted society; and 3) no attempt is made by the contacting civilization to disguise its exogenous nature.”

Additionally, Shklovski and Sagan cited tales of Oannes, a fishlike being attributed with teaching agriculture, mathematics, and the arts to early Sumerians, as deserving closer scrutiny as a possible instance of paleocontact due to its consistency and detail.

In his 1979 book Broca’s Brain, Sagan suggested that he and Shklovski might have inspired the wave of 1970s ancient astronaut books, expressing disapproval of “von Däniken and other uncritical writers” who seemingly built on these ideas not as guarded speculations but as “valid evidence of extraterrestrial contact.” Sagan argued that while many legends, artifacts, and purported out-of-place artifacts were cited in support of ancient astronaut hypotheses, “very few require more than passing mention” and could be easily explained with more conventional hypotheses. Sagan also reiterated his earlier conclusion that extraterrestrial visits to Earth were possible but unproven, and improbable.

Erich von Däniken

Erich von Däniken was a leading proponent of this hypothesis in the late 1960s and early 1970s, gaining a large audience through the 1968 publication of his best-selling book Chariots of the Gods? and its sequels.

According to von Däniken, certain artifacts require a more sophisticated technological ability in their construction than that which was available to the ancient cultures who constructed them. Von Däniken maintains that these artifacts were constructed either directly by extraterrestrial visitors or by humans who learned the necessary knowledge from said visitors. These include Stonehenge, Pumapunku, the Moai of Easter Island, the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the ancient Baghdad electric batteries.

Is our world a simulation?

Is our world a simulation? Why some scientists say it’s more likely than not …

A swath of technologists and physicists believe that ‘simulation theory’ will be proved, just as it was proved that the Earth was not the center of the universe.

Is our world a simulation - http://www.alamongordo.com

When Elon Musk isn’t outlining plans to use his massive rocket to leave a decaying Planet Earth and colonize Mars, he sometimes talks about his belief that Earth isn’t even real and we probably live in a computer simulation. “There’s a billion to one chance we’re living in base reality,” he said at a conference in June.

Musk is just one of the people in Silicon Valley to take a keen interest in the “simulation hypothesis”, which argues that what we experience as reality is actually a giant computer simulation created by a more sophisticated intelligence. If it sounds a lot like The Matrix, that’s because it is.

 Quite frankly if we are not living in a simulation it is an extraordinarily unlikely circumstance 
Rich Terrile, scientist at Nasa's Jet Propulsion Laboratory 

According to this week’s New Yorker profile of Y Combinator venture capitalist Sam Altman, there are two tech billionaires secretly engaging scientists to work on breaking us out of the simulation. But what does this mean? And what evidence is there that we are, in fact, living in The Matrix?

One popular argument for the simulation hypothesis, outside of acid trips, came from Oxford University’s Nick Bostrom in 2003 (although the idea dates back as far as the 17th-century philosopher René Descartes). In a paper titled “Are You Living In a Simulation?”, Bostrom suggested that members of an advanced “posthuman” civilization with vast computing power might choose to run simulations of their ancestors in the universe. This argument is extrapolated from observing current trends in technology, including the rise of virtual reality and efforts to map the human brain.

 Recognizing we live in a simulation is game-changing, like Copernicus realizing Earth was not the center of the universe 

If we believe that there is nothing supernatural about what causes consciousness and it’s merely the product of a very complex architecture in the human brain, we’ll be able to reproduce it. “Soon there will be nothing technical standing in the way to making machines that have their own consciousness,” said Rich Terrile, a scientist at Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. At the same time, videogames are becoming more and more sophisticated and in the future we’ll be able to have simulations of conscious entities inside them.

Are we asleep and dreaming our lifes ??? Learning and than wake up when we die ???

“Forty years ago we had Pong – two rectangles and a dot. That’s where we were. Now 40 years later, we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. And soon we’ll have virtual reality, we’ll have augmented reality,” said Musk. “If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality.”
It’s a view shared by Terrile. “If one progresses at the current rate of technology a few decades into the future, very quickly we will be a society where there are artificial entities living in simulations that are much more abundant than human beings.”

If there are many more simulated minds than organic ones, then the chances of us being among the real minds starts to look more and more unlikely. As Terrile puts it: “If in the future there are more digital people living in simulated environments than there are today, then what is to say we are not part of that already?”

Is our world a simulation? Why some scientists say it's more likely than not ...

Reasons to believe that the universe is a simulation include the fact that it behaves mathematically and is broken up into pieces (subatomic particles) like a pixelated video game. “Even things that we think of as continuous – time, energy, space, volume – all have a finite limit to their size. If that’s the case, then our universe is both computable and finite. Those properties allow the universe to be simulated,” Terrile said.

“Quite frankly, if we are not living in a simulation, it is an extraordinarily unlikely circumstance,” he added. So who has created this simulation? “Our future selves,” said Terrile. Not everyone is so convinced by the hypothesis. “Is it logically possible that we are in a simulation? Yes. Are we probably in a simulation? I would say no,” said Max Tegmark, a professor of physics at MIT.

“In order to make the argument in the first place, we need to know what the fundamental laws of physics are where the simulations are being made. And if we are in a simulation then we have no clue what the laws of physics are. What I teach at MIT would be the simulated laws of physics,” he said.

Inuit elders issue warning : The Earth has shifted

INUIT ELDERS ISSUE WARNING TO NASA AND THE WORLD : THE EARTH HAS SHIFTED !

Inuit Elders have issued a warning saying that the earth has shifted or “wobbled” (Chandler Wobble) and that “their sky has changed,” and the sun, moon, and stars are out of place.

If we look back to everything that has happened int he last couple of years, there are some who would say that catastrophic natural events have increased lately. Some blame global warming, mankind, our way of life, while others are convinced it’s just a matter of natural cycles.

Inuit elders prophecies earth has shifted - http://www.alamongordo.com/

Recently—in July of 2017—a MASSIVE trillion ton iceberg, four times the size of London broke free of Antarctica. Dubbed A68, the monstrous iceberg measures 5,800 square kilometers and broke away from the Larsen C Ice Shelf. According to reports, it is one of the largest ever icebergs to break off of Antarctica with a volume twice the size of Lake Erie according to Project MIDAS. This, according to many is beyond worrying.

Reports indicate how global warming has never been as dangerous as it is today, and according to reports from USA today, the temperature in the regions are up to 5 degrees higher since the 1950’s and could even increase to up to 7 degrees by the end of the century. However, the massive iceberg that recently broke off is just the beginning warn experts who are afraid that satellite images from Antarctica show the continent is ‘breaking apart.’

After observing A68 getting separated from the Larsen C ice shelf, scientists say how they have observed remaining cracks to grow towards another feature called The Bawden Ice Rise—a region which provides critical structural support for the remaining ice shelf. But there are more problems which many of us aren’t aware of it seems.

According to scientists, our planet is experiencing the SIXTH mass extinction, as humans are causing a “biological annihilation” of wildlife. Experts argue how thousands of species on planet Earth are at risk from disappearing forever, if we don’t change collectively in the next two decades, and counter the ‘powerful assaults on biodiversity’. This dire warning was issued in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal where expert wrote how “In the last few decades alone, habitat loss, overexploitation, invasive organisms, pollution, toxification, and more recently climate disruption, as well as numerous interactions among these factors, have driven to the catastrophic declines in both the numbers and sizes of populations of both common and rare vertebrate species.”

The Earth has shifted – Not the best news right?

Well, according to Inuit Elders—natives to Arctic regions in Canada, the United States and Greenland, the Earth has shifted. Inuit Elders have issued a warning not only to NASA but to mankind, in General, saying that climate change cannot be blamed solely on global warming and that our planet is shifting. Inuit Elders say that our planet has ‘wobbled,’ saying how ‘their sky has changed.’ The Inuit are considered as excellent weather forecasters just as their ancestors before them. They say that the numerous weather changes and Earthquakes that our planet has experienced cannot be blamed on Global Warming as the majority thinks. Their entire message can be viewed in THIS VIDEO !

Seven Prophecies of Edgar Cayce Yet to Come

EDGAR CAYCE’S SEVEN PROPHECIES YET TO COME

Prophecies for 2018 and the future by Edgar Cayce - http://www.alamongordo.com

1 – LARGE CONFLICT IN THE PERSIAN GULF

Edgar Cayce reading 3976-26 : “…As is understood by many, in the earth manifestation and the cycle of time much repeats itself … There are still influences indicated in the lives of groups banded as nations, banded as peoples, still influenced by those happenings. What then, ye ask, is the influence that makes for this great change that may be expected? The powers of light and darkness, as then, as sixteen hundred (1600) years before. As in those periods, so today – we find nation against nation; the powers of death, destruction, the wrecking of that which has been and is held near and dear to the hearts of those who have through one form or another set ideals. These are not to be questioned, in that as may be a helpful force; but what is coming to pass? And how may ye as individuals help? … Strifes will arise through the period. Watch for them near Davis Strait in the attempts there for the keeping of the life line to a land open. Watch for them in Libya and in Egypt, in Ankara and in Syria, through the straits about those areas above Australia, in the Indian Ocean and the Persian Gulf.”

2 – WILL OUR LIFESPAN AS HUMAN BEINGS, BE EXTENDED ?

Edgar Cayce reading 244-2 : “Now, we find there are many changes in the body since we have had this – many for good. Many of the organs and the conditions show the changes as come about by the natural, or so called natural conditions in changes as the body succumbs to the effects of age or usage in the system. Much of this may be overcome. (Man should live much longer than has been ordinarily given – and will!)”

3 – IS A NEW ROOT RACE EVOLVING ?

The Edgar Cayce information suggests that humanity’s consciousness has evolved and expanded over time. Cayce stated that this expansion of consciousness could be viewed throughout the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation. From the readings perspective the next great evolution would be tied to the development of what Cayce termed “the fifth root race.” An evolutionary occurrence that would mark a New Age and a new understanding of humanity’s relationship to God :

Edgar Cayce reading 470-35 : When a 52-year-old construction engineer asked about this expanding consciousness in 1942, Cayce commented that each individual had to essentially work with personal soul development in order to resonate to that new consciousness: “You expect a new root race. What are you doing to prepare for it? You must prepare food for their bodies as well as their minds and their spiritual development!”

Edgar Cayce reading 5748-6 : Ten years earlier, during a reading on the Great Pyramid in Egypt, Cayce suggested that an ancient “Hall of Records” would be discovered at a time signifying the manifestation of this new level of consciousness.

4 – WILL WE DISCOVER THE DESIGN FOR A SELF-FUELING PERPETUAL-MOTION MACHINE ?

Perhaps with the current focus on renewable resources and energy conservation, we will see this next prophecy come to pass in our lifetimes.

Edgar Cayce reading 4666 : “You will have before you the gasless motor invented by. Yes, we have the body and enquiring mind of (4666), also the associations and those conditions surrounding the perfection of motor which will develop power in its own action. As has been given, the idea and the plans as have been worked out in part along those lines that pull more of the power as produced in compression in drum, with the leads made in these forms that gather vibrations from the air as is forced through drum, are, as we find, the better application of the created energy. In the cams [as] have been used too much slack or play is allowed in their rotation. This is in the drum’s head action that these must be shortened in play.

Edgar Cayce reading 4665-1 : “The connection of [195] and [900] with same – best that these have [4666]’s operations closer under their observations when the completed product is near attained.

“(Q) How may we bring him under our observation? (A) Bring him to … Ohio or N.Y.

“(Q) Is this machine the same as brought to Washington now by Lindbergh? [Charles A. Lindbergh] (A) No. As is here, the [4666] machine would operate on stationary conditions impelling forces; even for now that in gas motors – for, as tested by others, has more to do with that thrown in air and gaining its impelling force from that source.

“(Q) Would it operate perpetually if perfected? (A) Not perpetually, but once started could be kept in motion by created energy of its own source. Other has to have some source of impellation.”

5 – WILL THE THREE HALLS OF RECORDS BE DISCOVERED ?

According to the readings, the people of Atlantis became aware of the fact that their civilization was about to be destroyed. As a result, they hid identical records of the Atlantean civilization in Bimini, in Egypt and in the Yucatan. Numerous readings contend that this Hall of Records will be discovered, including :

Edgar Cayce reading 378-16 : (Q) Give in detail what the sealed room contains (A) A record of Atlantis from the beginnings of those periods when the Spirit took form or began the encasements in that land, and the developments of the peoples throughout their sojourn, with the record of the first destruction and the changes that took place in the land… This in position lies, as the sun rises from the waters, the line of the shadow (or light) falls between the paws of the Sphinx, that was later set as the sentinel or guard, and which may not be entered from the connecting chambers from the Sphinx’s paw (right paw) until the TIME has been fulfilled when the changes must be active in this sphere of man’s experience. Between, then, the Sphinx and the river.”

Edgar Cayce reading 5750-1 : (Q) In which pyramid or temple are the records mentioned in the readings given through this channel on Atlantis, in April, 1932? (A) As given, that temple was destroyed at the time there was the last destruction in Atlantis. Yet, as time draws nigh when changes are to come about, there may be the opening of those three places where the records are one, to those that are the initiates in the knowledge of the One God: The temple by Iltar will then rise again. Also there will be the opening of the temple or hall of records in Egypt, and those records that were put into the heart of the Atlantean land may also be found there – that have been kept, for those that are of that group. The RECORDS are ONE.

6 – WHAT IS THE SHAPE OF THE WORLD TO COME ?

Edgar Cayce reading 3976-29 : Decades before the rest of the world was thinking about the enormous impact that China would have upon the global stage, Edgar Cayce predicted great things for China and its people. On one occasion, Cayce told a group of people that eventually China would become “the cradle of Christianity, as applied in the lives of men.”

Edgar Cayce reading 2834-3 : This suggests the personal application of spiritual principles would become paramount to the Chinese people. Cayce then went on to caution that it would take a long time to manifest but that it was the country’s destiny: “Yea, it is far off as man counts time, but only a day in the heart of God – for tomorrow China will awake.” On another occasion, when a thirty-six-year-old book publisher asked about the destiny of China in 1943, just prior to his own trip to the country to serve in the capacity of a missionary, Cayce promised amazing changes in the country that would lead to more democracy and greater religious freedom. He also suggested that eventually the height of civilization would move from the West to the Chinese people: “And these will progress. For, civilization moves west.”

7 – WILL THERE BE A SECOND COMING ?

The Cayce readings had much to say about the life of Jesus—covering the “lost” years that were never addressed in the Bible. But Cayce also spoke of Jesus’ return and here is an excerpt on that subject :

Edgar Cayce reading 262-49 : “What is meant by “the day of the Lord is near at hand”? (A) That as has been promised through the prophets and the sages of old, the time – and half time – has been and is being fulfilled in this day and generation, and that soon there will again appear in the earth that one through whom many will be called to meet those that are preparing the way for His day in the earth. The Lord, then, will come, ‘even as ye have seen him go.”

Are you One Of The 144,000 Prophesized Lightworkers ?

If You Have Any Of These 10 Characteristics You Are One Of The 144,000 Prophesized Lightworkers To Save The World?

There is one prediction that can be found both, in the book of revelations and the emerald tablets forecasting something really exciting!

It says that there will be an incarnation of 144,000 lightworkers who will save earth from the “forces of darkness” during the end times of the kali yuga.

Are You One Of The 144000 Propheciesed Lightworkers That Will Save The World Alamongordo Prophecies - http://www.alamongordo.com

The most interesting part about this prediction is the realization that most of these lightworkers are now here and in the process of “waking up” to their divine purpose and mission on earth. Majority of them might not even know or remember who they REALLY are!

According to spiritual teachers and psychics, the cellular memories of the 144,000 were programmed, timed, and triggered to “go off” at this time and awaken them to their true identity, mission, and purpose for incarnating on earth at this most crucial time in earth’s history.

What does saving the world means?

The term “saving the planet” carries a wrong connotation and that’s why most people don’t understand what we really mean. It’s not literally about the planet Earth, the Earth is fine with or without us. There’s not going to be an epic fight between the dark and the light. At least not here in the physical realm.

We need saving as species, there is something rotten deep in our collective psyche and we need to deal with it. The so called “forces of darkness” are simply the projection of this shadow we need to face deep in ourselves.

Lightworkers are people who heal on many levels. They heal mentally, physically, emotionally and even spiritually. They do this through their work and their energy if they learn to control and manage it.

Prophesized Lightworkers Alamongordo 144000 - http://Alamongordo.Com

That’s why they are the ones who will “save the world from the forces of darkness” because they will help us heal the shadows of humanity. And the number is just a sacred quantity that, if reached, creates a powerful wave that cannot be stopped.

It creates a wave that will wash the whole world from its negative behavior that’s retarding our true potential of love. It’s like when you try to stop fire from spreading, if you distinguish a certain amount of that fire, the rest will simply distinguish by itself.

Are you one of the 144,000 lightworkers that will save the world?

There are 10 common traits among fellow lightworkers. All of them experienced most of these in the process of their awakening.

If you experience any of these characteristics you are one of the 144,000 prophesized lightworkers that will save the world:

  1. You were always identifying with heroic characters and superheroes. And you still do, even if you are an adult now;
  2. You have a deep purpose that not a lot of people know about. You might not be sure yourself, but you just know you were meant for something bigger;
  3. You have an inner understanding about spiritual concepts, higher knowledge and cosmic wisdom that feels natural to you;
  4. You love people, but you hate them at the same time. And this is so confusing to you. It’s like you unconditionally love who they are at their core, but you hate all the junk that’s preventing them to shine, like their ego, addictions, stupid decisions and negativity;
  5. You might have panic attacks and anxiety problems;
  6. You love animals and you feel deeply for the harm we do to them to satisfy our own needs;
  7. You can’t stand injustice;
  8. You always try to lighten up the mood. If something is tense you tell a joke, if someone is down you do your best to cheer them up, if someone is asking for your help you might go out of your own way just to help them;
  9. You tend to inspire others, even if you are unaware of this;
  10. You love to merge dualities into oneness, like science and spirituality, psychology and philosophy, technology and nature;

The time for awakening is now!

We have reached and entered the 11th hour of the great change that is taking place on earth! The time has come for the remaining lightworkers to awaken so we can get to the prophesized number of 144,000!

Hopi and World War III

HOPI PROPHECIES   :   Part IPart IIPart IIIBlue Star ProphecyHopi & World War III

Hopi Prophecies about the Third World War

White Feather furthermore said that the conclusion of the Fourth World would be accompanied by great wars and mass destruction. He believed this would especially occur in the lands where the “first light of wisdom” appeared—perhaps the Middle East or the Near East. Fiery columns of smoke would rise, which might remind us of either the surrealistic scene of Sadam Hussein setting his oil wells on fire during the first Gulf War or the “Shock and Awe” campaign of the subsequent, disastrous Iraq War. Remember, this humble Hopi man was talking in 1958.

“These are the Signs that great destruction is coming. The world shall rock to and fro. The white man will battle against other people in other lands—with those who possessed the first light of wisdom. There will be many columns of smoke and fire such as White Feather has seen the white man make in the deserts not far from here. Only those which come will cause disease and a great dying. Many of my people, understanding the prophecies, shall be safe. Those who stay and live in the places of my people also shall be safe.”

Thus, the territory in northern Arizona in the vicinity of the Hopi reservation will apparently be a safe haven during the transition between the end of the Fourth World and the beginning of the Fifth. White Feather’s account is corroborated by a passage from the classic Book of the Hopi, written by Frank Waters and Oswald White Bear Fredericks, published in 1963. “World War III will be started by those peoples who first received the light [the divine wisdom or intelligence] in the other old countries [India, China, Egypt, Palestine, Africa]. The United States will be destroyed, land and people, by atomic bombs and radioactivity. Only the Hopis and their homeland will be preserved as an oasis to which refugees will flee.” (The brackets in this quotation were inserted by the author Frank Waters.)

We need not be reminded of the early 2011 turmoil in North Africa and the Middle East known as the “Arab Spring.” Mass protests and unrest resulted in the deaths of innocent people who sought to throw off the yoke of dictatorship, military rule, or repressive theocracies. Tunisia, Egypt, Bahrain, Yemen, Libya, Iraq, and Syria may be the lands with the “first light of wisdom,” to which the Hopi elder referred more than a half century ago. The complexities of the various factions and issues unfortunately preclude any easy political or diplomatic answers or actions.

Meanwhile the apocalyptic strife continues to occur right before our eyes, from the Israel/Palestinian war in the summer of 2014 to the rise of IS (Islamic State, or ISIL). Regarding the latter group, this “al Qaeda-on-steroids” is currently terrorizing whole populations in Syria and Iraq as it sends shockwaves and horror around the world with videotaped beheadings of Westerners posted on the Internet. The human suffering, mass executions, and deplorable hunger that we see on our TVs and computer screens naturally makes us recoil in despair. It is as if we are paralyzed by what someone has called “fear porn.” To make matters worse, a small minority of the general populace has assumed the role of fear monger, who interprets every major political or social event with some sort of conspiracy theory, some “false flag” operation. These purveyors of paranoia believe that nefarious truths lurk behind every headline, keeping many of us in a perpetual state of anxiety.

On the other hand, let’s not pretend to be New Age Pollyannas. The Hopi basically believe that humankind must go through a very rough period called the Purification—a kind of universal trial by fire. This ordeal will essentially separate the wheat from the chaff, or more pertinent to the Hopi, the spiritual corn (maize) from the materialistic stalk. During this dire time in history, I believe that we must each ask ourselves one fundamental question: Are we truly living by the prescribed mandates and life-engendering processes of the Creator? (If indeed we conceive of a supreme deity at all?)

So the end of the Fourth World will be hard—harder for some than for others. Another spiritual elder named Dan Evehema, also from the village of Hotevilla and also over one hundred years old when he passed on, talked about the cosmic results of what today we call “income inequality.” He claimed that the Day of Purification (the Apocalypse ?) would “…culminate either in total rebirth or total annihilation—we don’t know which. But the choice is yours, war and natural catastrophe may be involved.

The degree of violence will be determined by the degree of inequity caused among peoples of the world and in balance with nature. In this crisis rich and poor will be forced to struggle as equals in order to survive.”

Most Hopi people ultimately believe, however, that this transition between world-ages will not mean the total “end of the world ” as we know it, but rather the beginning of what they call the Fifth World—a time of peace for humanity and pristine harmony with Mother Nature. Leaning more toward the possibility of renaissance (literally, rebirth) and regeneration rather than annihilation and desolation, Grandfather Monongye describes this Purification and its ultimate outcome.

“It will then open our hearts and minds when a new age is about to be, with people renewed and purified through fire. It will be like the pure gold of a new day. But fire is red, and when it takes command, it will set the forces of nature in motion. We will then know purification day has come. We all are the caretakers of life. The balance of nature depends on us. The world will be what we want it to be.”
