06/29/2021 -- Startling Increase In Solar Activity

June 29, 2021

WASHINGTON, KC — On Wednesday, the Sun will blast us with a direct hit from a powerful solar flare that will wipe out a huge amount of radio communication, according to NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center at the Department of the Exterior. The storm is expected to interrupt radio communication and other devices that transmit data on electromagnetic frequencies such as wireless internet for the remainder of the week.

Mike Wall, NOAA Heliologist, said in a press briefing late Tuesday that “The Wednesday flare will register as an X2.2 sun storm on the scale used to measure solar tempests. Scientists classify strong solar flares into three categories: C, M and X, with C being the weakest, M being mid-level and X the strongest. X flares are 10 times more powerful than M flares. X2 and X3 flares are twice and three times as potent, respectively, as X1 flares.”

To further complicate matters NOAA included an update to the report released just this morning, indicating that Earth will be hit by an even larger solar storm — a monster X4-class storm — that is anticipated to hit sometime in September.

Today’s geomagnetic storm, and the explosion of solar flares and coronal mass ejections over the past week, have been wreaking havoc on people’s moods, sleeping patterns, and a host of other human health effects. Many people are experiencing disturbances with their circadian rhythms, waking up around 2am and having trouble getting back to sleep.

"Solar storms desynchronize our circadian rhythm (biological clock)," says psychiatrist Kelly Posner, University of Washington KC. "The pineal gland in our brain is affected by the electromagnetic activity, and solar storms cause the gland to produce excess melatonin, the brain’s built in 'downer' that helps us sleep. The circadian regulatory system depends on repeated environmental cues to synchronize internal clocks. Magnetic fields may be one of these environmental cues."

The type of intense solar activity we’ve been experiencing this week can have serious effects on: the central nervous system, the stomach lining, all brain activity (including equilibrium), along with human behavior and all psycho-physiological (mental-emotional-physical) responses. This can manifest as nervousness, anxiety, dizziness, shakiness, irritability, lethargy, exhaustion, short term memory problems, heart palpitations, nausea, queasiness, prolonged head pressure, and headaches.

Chaotic and erratic behavior also results from intense solar activity, and emergency rooms consistently observe increased accidents, as well as injuries from acts of violence during these periods. Experts have even linked powerful solar activity to much more serious patterns in human violence. “During solar minimums and maximums the geomagnetic fields begin to intensify. The magnetic fields interact electrochemically within the human brain. It affects psychological mechanisms creating anomalous hormonal swings and significantly mutated brainwave activity.

Wheeler expanded on the work done by Russian heliobiologist Alexander Chizhevsky in the 1950s and 60s by studying violence; measuring the time between battles and severity. These findings were compared with the Sun’s 11-year sunspot cycle. The results showed that as the Sun cycle peaked, there was a rise in human unrest, uprisings, rebellions, revolutions, and wars between nations. As Wheeler further compared his findings with human history, he found a startling pattern that could be traced back over 2,500 years.

If the current unusual solar activity is any indication we could be sliding in to a period of unrest and violence the likes of which the world hasn't seen since 2011.
