“If we could take ourselves back to A.D. 810 Quirigua, we might see a gathering in the courtyard before the great temple, called Structure 1. The last of the galactic masters, seven of them perhaps, each accompanied by a large quartz crystal, seated in intense meditation on the grassy plaza, suddenly become surrounded by a humming vibration — a resonance that is part sound, part vision. Materializing into view are the luminous galactic cocoons. The cocoons first hover above the galactic masters, then slowly enclose them; the vibratory hum increases, blending with the ceaseless symphony of the omnipresent jungle.”—

“Solar flares are giant explosions on the sun that send energy, light and high speed particles into space. These flares are often associated with solar magnetic storms known as coronal mass ejections (CMEs). The number of solar flares increases approximately every 11 years, and the sun is currently moving towards another solar maximum, likely in 2013. That means more flares will be coming, some small and some big enough to send their radiation all the way to Earth.”—
During the spring of 1970, my freshman year, I spent a semester on a roof on the Dartmouth College campus, measuring sunspots as they migrated across the surface of the sun. Students were leaving school in droves for Washington, DC, to protest the Vietnam War, and the first Earth Day was under way. 1970 was the year of a sunspot maximum, a cycle which occurs approximately every 11 years.
NASA study finds increasing solar trend that can change climate
The solar cycle occurs approximately every 11 years when the sun undergoes a period of increased magnetic and sunspot activity called the “solar maximum,” followed by a quiet period called the “solar minimum.”
"Whole Earth Festival was born when an art class taught by Jose Arguelles had an “Art Happening” on the University of California, Davis campus in 1969. The students used art to involve those that attended in an educational process that dared to transcend the typical system of standardized tests and impersonal lectures. Following the United Nations declaration of “Earth Day” in 1970, the second “Art Happening” (1971) was renamed “Whole Earth.”
"PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — Jose Arguelles, an art historian whose teachings about the Mayan calendar inspired the harmonic convergence event of 1987, has died at age 72.
His publisher and a statement from his foundation said he died March 23, in Australia. A spokeswoman for the publisher said Monday the cause was peritonitis.
On Aug. 16, 1987, thousands of new age adherents following the lead of Arguelles gathered at places such as the red rocks of Sedona, Ariz., Serpent Mound in Ohio and the Arthurian town of Glastonbury in England.”

“Piezoelectric Effect and Bone Density
Piezoelectric effect is the property of some materials to convert mechanical energy to electrical current. “Piezo” is a Greek word that means “to squeeze.” The effect was first discovered by Pierre Curie and Jacques Curie in 1880. Dr. I. Yasuda in 1957 discovered the existence of piezoelectric effect in bones.”—
# 332.....Realizing my first connection with transduction
In March 1985, I researched the stones used to build the BofA Headquarters Building at 555 California Street in San Francisco, CA.; during my research I was 1st exposed to the work of Marie Curie. I knew she was a key to the hazy questions I could formulate:
"Might there not be values to the stone which our bodies can recognize and inter-react with on unconscious elementary levels?"
My interest in the stones (Granite from South Dakota) was entirely stimulated by my qualitative emotion responses to them. I went on to write and eventually publish, later in 1985, an article entitled A Piece of Granite Called Transcendence.
Today, decades later, I have come to better appreciate the following quantitative values that were largely hidden from me in 1985:
Brothers Pierre and Jacques Curie discovered the piezoelectric effect in the late 1800s, when they were only in their early 20s. They found that certain crystals such as quartz, topaz and cane sugar that become polarized will create a voltage. Polarization has the effect that transverse waves, which are perpendicular, will vibrate in a plane. Examples are vertically polarized and horizontally polarized waves.
Pierre later went on to marry Marie Curie, and they jointly won the Nobel Prize for pioneering work in radiation.
The piezoelectric effect occurs in certain crystals. Those that are affected include quartz, Rochelle salts and tourmaline.
Quartz crystals are the most abundant type in nature. This is why they are so inexpensive and are the also most popular. Rochelle salts are the most fragile, being prone to easy breakage. They are also the most sensitive to AC voltage. Tourmaline is the opposite; it is the least sensitive of the three to AC voltage, but is also the strongest.
Ceramics that are also piezoelectric are barium titanate, lead zirconate and lead titanate. The effect has also been produced in man-made crystals and ceramics.
The piezoelectric effect is useful in pressure transducers.”
“The Theory of Piezoelectricity
Piezoelectricity is created when certain materials such as crystals are subjected to a mechanical force, thus causing them to generate a voltage. Piezoelectronics have important roles as transducers in several industries. They are significant in testing, measuring, monitoring, cleaning and detection.”—
transducer (trāns-d ‘sər) Pronunciation Key
A device that converts one type of energy or signal into another. For example, a microphone is a transducer that converts sound waves into electric impulses; an electric motor is a transducer that converts electricity into mechanical energy.”—
Just yesterday, 2/10/12, following a Full Moon at 18 Leo 32’, just past my horoscope Pluto position at 17 Leo 34’; I re-woke to a vision that has been guiding my life for decades. After I connected more dots, while reading, I came to realize a ‘bigger picture’ of my sometimes confused activities over 25 years. Recently, my senses were dulled from these long days of survival behavior centered around economic struggle, which I have witnessed occurring internationally.
This latest realization unfolded itself - much as all of my transcendent experiences had beginning back in 1985 - accidentally.
I was touching my crystals, I handle them ritually every morning, and began to consider what I was touching. Long ago I did this with the stone body and decoration of the B of A Headquarters Building in San Francisco and found all sorts of thoughts filling my head. I was remembering! From then, I simply followed where they lead me. This latest handling of my stones compelled me to select out Jose Arguelles’ from my library.
Simply Stated, I stumbled upon the word transduction and began to explore it more deeply. I found the word at 6:12 a.m., 2012, as I rode the bus to work. It was on page 57 of Jose Arguelles’s book The Mayan Factor.
More specifically, Jose was writing about one of the powers attributed to the Maya - resonant transduction. He saw the Maya as able to be able, through deep insights into wave harmonics and frequency changes, “to apply this knowledge and pass directly from one condition of being to another”. This explanation struck me as the conscious reason for why I have long gathered to me and held my many stones from there places of origin around the Earth, why I created Earth Harvest talismans in 1985, and 4-Terra Assemblage Talismans in 2010; I was sensitive to the harmonic and frequency attunement to stone; experiences that I knew consciously as ‘affinity’ and ‘attunement’ for decades.
This word Transduction is infinitely more challenging and satisfying. I immediately launched into researching the meanings of the word.
“The resonant body of Earth, the vibratory infrastructure that literally holds together the sense-perception body of Earth, is in a condition of intense “fever” called resonant dissonance…
…In order to accommodate the increased dissonance of frequency, wave adjustments are set off at the crystal core of the Earth until a new harmonic resonance of slightly higher frequency is attained, thus accommodating the dissonance and stabilizing at a new level of resonance. If this new level of resonance can be attained before further destructive impacts are inflicted upon the planetary field — whether as increased carbon dioxide or further nuclear testing — then the planet will have successfully charted the 5,200-tun synchronization beam.”—
Jose Arguelles, The Mayan Factor~Path Beyond Technology~1987
It was Jose Arguelles who took on the role of transducer, to lead hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions gathered around the Earth, across the critical moment of the Harmonic Convergence.
This Harmonic Convergence moment, August 16-17, 1987, marked a phase during a great Mayan 5,200-tun, or 5,125 years cycle ~ a galactic synchronization beam. At the time, in his book The Mayan Factor ~ Path Beyond Technology, 1987, Arguelles wrote that "the other [process] involved the dissonant quickening of the resonant field of the planet resulting in a wide spectrum of effects from UFO sightings and increased psychism to tectonic plate shifts and terrorism.”
At the peak moments of the Harmonic Convergence, I shared the same auditorium and plaza in Denver, Colorado, with Jose Arguelles. We stood in solidarity along with hundreds (perhaps thousands) of dancers, observers, and wise-Elders.
After those events that fundamentally informed my life (giveaways & a sweat), I returned to California and those gravitational forces that dictated my daily life - my family. The purification I/we had called upon ourselves began immediately. In the midst of the malestrom to come I was frequently left with integrity to hold onto. The same was true for Jose Arguelles.
In the Arguelles quote above, I put emphasis on the word terrorism. It seems that this prophetic word, written in 1987, was to define my service to the Harmonic Convergence. In the same 1987 Virgo Issue of Welcome To Planet Earth, that carried an interview with Jose Arguelles, I joined him with one of my own articles, provocatively entitled The Great Satan. In my work, I pointed, unerringly, at a Persian Gulf stage (marked with the appropriate symbolism) where terrorism would grip the world of humans for the next 25 years. Much of this period came to be known for The War on Terrorism and this war against terrorism has persisted (world-wide) up to the present moment, just months from the critical Mayan Omega point on December 21, 2012; timing the long awaited Galactic Synchronization.
Given the much sought for goal of purification before this point in time, it is ominous that there is a growing cloud of disharmony all along 50 E longitude, running through Iran, focused on Tehran her capital and spilling over to touch nations, as far afield, as Japan, China, the Euro-zone and Venezuela, Cuba, and the U.S.A. This cloud of disharmony is distilling around two horrible words now daily heard in juxtaposition - like a mantra; nuclear and war. We need to change this mantra. People conscious of the meaning of these times need to redouble their efforts and “be in their integrity, with purified intentions, holding on to nothing” Arguelles.
“…I must emphasize that the most important thing is for people to be in their integrity, with purified intention and holding onto nothing. This is because every human being is an electromagnetic wave-form.”—
