Dark energy is the new search of modern science to unravel questions
about the universe. It also suggests the end of humanity
will come in a ripping, shredding, tearing apart of the earth and
universe. It is called The Big Rip Theory. It's all
about "dark energy." Where did it come from? How did
Einstein miss it? What does it have to do with Terrorism?
Mel Gibson? You? Your kids? Their Kids?

Dark Energy--The Beast Of Terror's Cosmic Lair
GROUND ZER0, New York, N.Y.--Feb 18, 2004 -- Astronomers and
space scientists of all shapes and sizes are rattling about their
newest find--dark energy. It's negative energy.
And it's slowly ripping the galaxy apart.
scientists warn the world that dark energy is ripping the galaxy
Rough estimates are, doomsday, or the
Big Rip, is slated for 55 billion years from now.
Considering the earth was formed 5 billion years ago, we've got about
90 percent of our time left.
NY Times flagged the story today.
In it, scientists from the great universities are reported as
scratching their brows and quoting how Einstein said he "blundered" by
missing the idea of anti-gravitational forces accelerating the
universe out of existence.
It seems, under dark
energy theory, the universe is spinning faster and faster as negative
energy shoves against positive at a factor scientists haven't yet
discovered: however, they expect it is somewhere between minus 0.8 and
Skywatchers are scuttling
around the globe, from the South Pole to Hawaii, and conducting dark
energy surveys. They are plotting dead stars, setting
benchmarks to measure the shift and changes of the heavens over the
next few billion years.
They are, essentially,
tracking cosmic cancer. They are hunting celestial
Terrorists who, over long eons of time, have one plan--to destroy
everything and start afresh.
At the other end of
the secular search for answers to the beginning and end of the
universe stand the religious zealots.
Christian Science Monitor describes
the upsurge in America's hunger to return to Biblical fundamentalism.
Over 58 million copies of a series of novels based on the theme:
"Left Behind," are one example of a growing apocalyptic belief in the
end of the universe.
Under this belief, Jesus
comes and whisks away all the "true believers" and leaves everyone
else to suffer in torture and pestilence for the next seven years,
when, after the pain and anguish has been meted out, God takes all the
leftovers with Him.
prognostications in the Book of Revelations warn that God's Plan
for the ages may be running out
Terrorism adds fuel to
the fire, as does the bloodshed and conflict in Israel that plays
directly to the prognostications in the Book of Revelations.
People seeking to find the end of the world do. This is
called by "time of rapture." It is the time when the Beast
of Terror rules without check.
It may not be by
accident that the NY Times is headlining one story on the scientific
end of humanity, and the CS Monitor is headlining the spiritual demise
of life as we know it.
movie, The Passion, reminds all who see that pain and suffering
awaits those who love and care for others
Then, of course, there's
Mel Gibson's movie, The Passion, reminding all who see it that
suffering and pain awaits those who love and care for others.
"Dark Energy" seems
to be modern science's hiding place for the Beast of Terror.
It seems to suck the life out of the marrow of the universe.
It's negative gravity overwhelms the positive, especially if the minus
1 factor drops beyond 1.0 to 1.1 or 1.2 or 1.3.
For years, I have
proposed that Plus One Percent Thought is all that is necessary to
overwhelm a Minus One Percent Thought. On equal
foots, a Minus One facing a Plus One, the Plus One will win out.
words, if your Courage is equal to your Fear, your Courage wins.
If your Conviction equals your Intimidation, your Conviction wins,
and, if your Right Actions for future generations are equal to your
Complacency, you also win.
theory might suggest there is no hope, if the factor the
scientists are looking for turns out to be more than minus 1.0.
The "bad guy" would have the edge over the good guy.
Terrorism might just be more powerful than Vigilance in the end.
It's a hard formula
to buy. It means all hope for human evolution will be met
with a horrible end, and all dreams will be dashed, ripped, shredded.
The good news out of this bad is that the end won't occur for 55
billion years. There's 30 generations in one millennium and
more than 50 million millennia in 55 billion years.
The point is, under
this theory, life ends with a big rip.
seems to fit perfectly into the Terrorist's formula.
Here's another way of reminding everyone that no matter what they do
or attempt to do to improve their lot, to rise above the primal roots
of their nature, in the final moments it will come down to torture,
pain and suffering.
punctuates the bloody end of salvation by brutally showing the
death of Jesus
fundamentalists preach the same horrible end, hoping Fear,
Intimidation and Complacency will turn non-believers into "believers,"
who want to be on the first wave to Heaven. And, Mel
Gibson's film simply punctuates the bloody end of salvation by
brutally showing the death of Jesus.
this "dark energy" is being treated as though it were new, previously
undiscovered. If science sits back and thinks about
humanity and singular ability to cogitate, to think while millions
upon millions of other living creatures with whom we share this earth
are deprived of that magical ability, we are "dark energy."
We are also
"light energy" We are the Plus and Minus of energy,
pulling and shoving, pushing and pulling, to move (evolve) to some
destination we only know exists inside the Question Mark.

explore new worlds...." What is "dark energy?"

of Terror to use
energy" is nothing more than little holes in the sky where the Beast
of Terror hides the anti-gravity of Fear, Intimidation and
Complacency. Maybe he has, like a chipmunk, stored
billions of little Terror acorns where no one will find them, as
perhaps Saddam Hussein buried his WMD in some pile of sand where no
one will ever find them in time to verify the decision to attack Iraq
was more honorable than dishonorable.
If one thinks
of "dark energy" in true human terms, it is that negative space in
human personality that reveals the cruelty, the brutality, the
selfishness, the ignoble, nature of humanity.
It is "our dark side," that place where the "Beast of Terror" lurks
waiting to shift our thoughts and tempt us into actions that rob
rather than give to the world. It is our
negative gravity competing with our positive.
As a Sentinel of
Vigilance, I force myself to look up to the sky and see the stars and
planets not as twinkling reminders to me that one day they will all be
snuffed out as the world collapses, but as light posts shining on a
road to warn the traveler of the potholes and dead ends.
doesn't mean the end to me, and, I'm sure, ultimately to the
scientists. There can be no question that "dark and
light energy" co-exist in such a manner as to both create and destroy
life, just as every human being can chose to be either a Gandhi or a
Hitler, a child abuser or a great mentor and coach for children.
keeps the Beast in check
is one side of the coin. It is the Beast of Terror's side.
Flip the coin over and you have Vigilance, and the Sentinel of
One keeps the
other in check.
I may not
have all the answers, but I certainly know the question. "Is it
better to be the Sentinel of Vigilance or the Beast of Terror?"
"Is it better to live life without taking the Pledge of Vigilance or
to take it and live by it daily?" "If I don't
counter Fear, will Fear eventually consume me?" "If I
don't fight off Intimidation, will I cower before the world
eventually?" "If I am Complacent and do nothing, how
will that impact the future generations?"
