Solar Tsunami! Celestial Show to Hit Earth Tonight

A gargantuan eruption of plasma on the surface of the sun has caused a celestial tsunami shower of ionized atoms to head straight for the Earth, which scientists expect to arrive at our planet Tuesday night.

Scientists also say there is nothing we can do and the coronal mass ejection will hit our world, illuminating the night sky before a final collision between us and the inevitable geomagnetic storm. “It’s the first major Earth-directed eruption in quite some time,” Leon Golub of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics told

And besides causing problems with satellites in the way, it should be quite an entertaining show.

NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory, which was launched in February and studies space phenomena like this one, and looks into the sun to see how it works. Scientists there say people in the Northern U.S. have a great view of it, and it should be even better if it triggers aurorae, or solar particles coming into contact with earth’s magnetic field and our atmosphere.




The Secret Lives of Plants

The Secret Life Of Plants is a rare 1979 documentary directed by Walon Green based on a book of the same name written by Peter Tompkins and Christopher Bird. It is described as “A fascinating account of the physical, emotional, and spiritual relations between plants and man.”

The movie also features the deep insightful knowledge of the African Dogon Tribe about the nature of the Universe … They share sacred knowledge about Po Tolo, Sirius’s companion star invisible to the naked eye. This is proven by modern astrology today … Sirius does have an orbiting companion star invisible to the naked eye and the Dogon Tribe have known this for thousands of years without any astronomical equipment. The Dogon Tribe have known to have had an extraterrestrial contact with beings from Sirius and they shared much knowledge with them about the universe … and the unity of all creation.

The movie shows us that plants too are sentient and respond to human emotions, despite their lack of a nervous system and a brain. This sentience is observed primarily through changes in the plant’s conductivity, as through a polygraph, as pioneered by Cleve Backster.

Stevie Wonder’s Journey Through “The Secret Life of Plants” is an album by Stevie Wonder, originally released on the Tamla Motown label on October 30, 1979. It is the soundtrack to the documentary The Secret Life of Plants.

Coming after Stevie Wonder’s 1976 Grammy Award-winning Songs in the Key of Life, Journey through the Secret Life of Plants was panned by most critics and was confusing to many fans, who didn’t know what to make of the conceptual, mostly instrumental double album. Even so, such was Wonder’s commercial appeal at the time that Journeywent all way up to number four in the Rock and R&B Billboard charts in 1979, with the single Send One Your Love also reaching number four. It is now considered by many to be a classic in its own right. It is also considered, in many listeners’s minds, to be one of the earliest New Age albums of all time, mainly in part because of the nature and instrumental songs on the album.

The album cover contained some braille, and when you unsealed and opened it, you smelled a flowery perfume.

Journey Through “The Secret Life of Plants” contained unusual synthesizer combinations including the first use of a digital sampling synthesizer, the Computer Music Melodian, used in virtually every track of the album. Journey is also notable for being an earlydigital recording, released three months after Ry Cooder‘s Bop till You Drop, generally believed to be the first digitally recorded popular music album. Stevie Wonder was an early adherent of the technology and used it for all his subsequent recordings.

The film made heavy use of time-lapse photography (where you can see plants grow in a few seconds, creepers reaching out to other plants and tugging on them, mushrooms and flowers popping open, etc.), certainly in order to portray them as animate beings. When the film was released, such images were a novelty to the general public.
