It is a great pity that "science" will not acknowledge that the Mayan's, who were regarded as a primitive civilization by scientific communities, got it right.

LOS ANGELES, California (AP) -- A new computer model suggests the
next solar cycle will be more active than the previous one,
potentially spawning magnetic storms that will be more disruptive to
communication systems on Earth.
The next sunspot cycle will be between 30 percent to 50 percent more
intense than the last one, scientists said Monday.
The cycle will also begin a year later than expected, in late 2007
or early 2008, and peak around 2012, said Mausumi Dikpati of the
National Center for Atmospheric Research in Boulder, Colorado.
The new prediction is at odds with previous forecasts, which
suggested that the intensity of the next solar cycle would be
Accurately predicting the intensity of the sunspot cycle, which
occurs about every 11 years, allows scientists to anticipate solar
storms. They are caused by solar flares, or giant eruptions that
burst from the surface of the sun.
Solar storms, which eject billions of tons of plasma and charged
particles into space, can produce dazzling northern lights, but also
disrupt power lines, radio transmissions and satellite communication.
The last time the solar cycle peaked was in 2001. During the last
cycle, solar storms caused extreme radio blackouts in the Pacific.
For decades, scientists have tracked the solar cycle and appearance
of sunspots, but they have been unable to accurately predict the
intensity or timing of solar storms, which increase as the number of
Dikpati, of the National Center for Atmospheric Research, said her
team tested the new computer model using previous solar cycle data
and had 98 percent accuracy.
David Hathaway, a solar astronomer with NASA's Marshall Space Flight
Center in Huntsville, Alabama, does not doubt that the next sunspot
cycle will be stronger than the previous one.
But Hathaway said his own research suggests that the next cycle will
occur late this year -- earlier than what Dikpati predicted.
The current research, funded by National Science Foundation, is
published in the latest Geophysical Research Letters.

The head of a man in a strong ecstatic
condition, when all the electricity of his system is centered around
the brain, will represent � especially in darkness � a perfect
simile of the Sun during such periods. The first artist who drew the
aureoles about the heads of his God and Saints was not inspired, but
represented it on the authority of temple pictures and traditions of
the sanctuary and the chambers of initiation where such phenomena
took place. The closer to the head or to the aura-emitting body, the
stronger and the more effulgent the emanation (due to hydrogen,
science tells us, in the case of the flames); hence the irregular
red flames around the Sun or the "inner corona." The fact that these
are not always present in equal quantity shows only the constant
fluctuation of the magnetic matter and its energy, upon which also
depend the variety and number of spots. During periods of magnetic
inertia the spots disappear, or rather remain invisible. The further
the emanation shoots out the more it loses in intensity, until
gradually subsiding it fades out; hence the "outer corona," its
rayed shape being due entirely to the latter phenomenon whose
effulgence proceeds from the magnetic nature of the matter and the
electric energy and not at all from intensely hot particles, as
asserted by some astronomers. All this is terribly unscientific,
nevertheless a fact, to which I may add another by reminding you
that the Sun we see is not at all the central planet of our little
Universe, but only its veil or its reflection. Science has
tremendous odds against studying that planet which luckily for us we
have not; foremost of all � the constant tremors of our atmosphere
which prevent them from judging correctly the little they do see.
This impediment was never in the way of the ancient Chaldee and
Egyptian astronomers; nor is it an obstacle to us, for we have means
of arresting, or counteracting such tremors � acquainted as we are
with all the akasic conditions. No more than the rain secret would
this secret � supposing we do divulge it � be of any practical use
to your men of Science unless they become Occultists and sacrifice
long years to the acquirement of powers. Only fancy a Huxley or a
Tyndall studying Yog-vidya! Hence the many mistakes into which they
fall and the conflicting hypotheses of your best authorities. For
instance; the Sun is full of iron vapours � a fact that was
demonstrated by the spectroscope, showing that the light of the
corona consisted largely of a line in the green part of the
spectrum, very nearly coinciding with an iron line. Yet Professors
Young and Lockyer rejected that, under the witty pretext, if I
remember, that if the corona were composed of minute particles like
a dust cloud (and it is this that we call "magnetic matter") these
particles would (1) fall upon the sun's body, (2) comets were known
to pass through this vapour without any visible effect on them, (3)
Professor Young's spectroscope showed that the coronal line was not
identical with the iron one, etc. Why they should call those
objections "scientific" is more than we can tell.
(1) The reason why the particles � since they call them so � do not
fall upon the sun's body is self-evident. There are forces co-
existent with gravitation of which they know nothing, besides that
other fact that there is no gravitation properly speaking, only
attraction and repulsion. (2) How could comets be affected by the
said passage since their "passing through" is simply an optical
illusion; they could not pass within the area of attraction without
being immediately annihilated by that force of which no vril can
give an adequate idea, since there can be nothing on earth that
could be compared with it. Passing as the comets do through
a "reflection" no wonder that the said vapour has "no visible effect
on these light bodies." (3) The coronal line may not seem identical
through the best "grating spectroscope," nevertheless, the corona
contains iron as well as other vapours. To tell you of what it does
consist is idle, since I am unable to translate the words we use for
it, and that no such matter exists (not in our planetary system, at
any rate) � but in the sun. The fact is, that what you call the Sun
is simply the reflection of the huge "storehouse" of our System
wherein ALL its forces are generated and preserved; the Sun being
the heart and brain of our pigmy Universe, we might compare its
faculae � those millions of small, intensely brilliant bodies of
which the Sun's surface away from the spots is made up � with the
blood corpuscles of that luminary, though some of them as correctly
conjectured by Science are as large as Europe. Those blood
corpuscles are the electric and magnetic matter in its sixth and
seventh state. What are those long white filaments twisted like so
many ropes, of which the penumbra of the Sun is made up? What the
central part that is seen like a huge flame ending in fiery spires,
and the transparent clouds, or rather vapours formed of delicate
threads of silvery light, that hangs over those flames � what � but
magneto-electric aura � the phlogiston of the Sun? Science may go on
speculating for ever, yet so long as she does not renounce two or
three of her cardinal errors she will find herself groping for ever
in the dark. Some of her greatest misconceptions are found in her
limited notions on the law of gravitation; her denial that matter
may be imponderable; her newly invented term "force" and the absurd
and tacitly accepted idea that force is capable of existing per se,
or of acting any more than life, outside, independent of, or in any
other wise than through matter; in other words that force is
anything but matter in one of her highest states, the last three on
the ascending scale being denied because only science knows nothing
of them; and her utter ignorance of the universal Proteus, its
functions and importance in the economy of nature � magnetism and
electricity. Tell Science that even in those days of the decline of
the Roman Empire, when the tattooed Britisher used to offer to the
Emperor Claudius his nazzur 6 of "electron" in the shape of a string
of amber beads � that even then there were yet men remaining aloof
from the immoral masses, who knew more of electricity and magnetism
than they, the men of science, do now, and science will laugh at
you as bitterly as she now does over your kind dedication to me.
Verily, when your astronomers, speaking of sun-matter, term those
lights and flames "clouds of vapour" and "gases unknown to science"
(rather!) chased by mighty whirlwinds and cyclones � whereas we know
it to be simply magnetic matter in its usual state of activity � we
feel inclined to smile at the expressions. Can one imagine
the "Sun's fires fed with purely mineral matter" � with meteorites
highly charged with hydrogen giving the "Sun a far-reaching
atmosphere of ignited gas"? We know that the invisible sun is
composed of that which has neither name, nor can it be compared to
anything known by your science � on earth; and that its "reflection"
contains still less of anything like "gases," mineral matter, or
fire, though even we when treating of it in your civilized tongue
are compelled to use such expressions as "vapour" and "magnetic
matter." To close the subject, the coronal changes have no effect
upon the earth's climate, though spots have � and Professor N.
Lockyer is mostly wrong in his deductions. The Sun is neither a
solid nor a liquid, nor yet a gaseous globe; but a gigantic ball of
electromagnetic Forces, the store-house of universal life and
motion, from which the latter pulsate in all directions, feeding the
smallest atom as the greatest genius with the same material unto the
end of the Maha Yug.
