In talking to friends scattered about the world,I've found a large amount of sleeplessnes,insomnia,restlessness etc for the past few nights.Could it be the sudden loss of thousands of fellow Earthship travelers? A disruption in the collective conciousness or disruption of the hum of the hive,so to speak?Just a thought....

Naw, the number killed in the Tsunami disaster is probably about the number of births in China during a lunch hour.

What I find even more intriguing and somewhat alarming, is that the earth was thrown off it's revolution speed in that that day was a fraction of an second shorter. All the atomic clocks are now off. All that US tax payer money we spend for the national standard atomic clock at the naval observatory in DC and the darn thing is now out of time with the world.
What will the long term effects of the thing be? Will the earth cool off slightly because the day is just under 24 hours and no longer gets the same amount of radiation from the sun? Did that sudden shift in the earth's rotation cause ripples of subsurface magma which will cause eruptions and quakes on other parts of the earth's surface. Apparently the Sri Lankan beach has been raised by a few feet.

Historical data indicates that there were severe world weather changes after the 1811 Missouri Earthquake and again after Krakatoa blew. Are we in for a few years of abnormally severe storms.

Sreamer, I don't think the atomic clock has been affected as the clock is timed to an atom, not the rotation of the earth. In fact, the atomic clock's accuracy is what sceintists used to learn that the earth's rotation had slowed.

Could the loss of so many lives be prevented?

I don't know..don't think so.

Sometimes"S--- Happens".It's an indisputable fact of life."What If" after the incident is just like Monday morning quarterbacking the football game.Yes equiptment that might have given warning existed,BUT,such a disaster was not felt to be likely,so the installations were not made.IF they had been,like everywhere else in the world,over the holidays,staff to monitor them,send warnings etc would have been at minimum and those w/least seniority and knowledge.Even if this were(god forbid)to happen on either coast of the US,thousands still would have perished.There is just no way possible to reach and evacuate the effected areas in the time allowed.Thankfully cataclysms like this are very rare.

Goes to 'Post Full-Moon-itis'...

I get it every month...

I also feel 'perigee', which is the moons' closest pass to the earth during the month which does not coincide with the phases of the moon...

Getting a post full-moon AND perigee is a double whammy and cause 'extreme tides', especially in winter when the Earth is closest to the Sun...

Wonder if the worlds collective conciousness was disturbed when the bombing of Dresden Germany killed upwards of 50,000-100,000 people?

or 25 million dead because of WWII?

Man is far more destructive than nature. But I guess we're part of nature, huh?

Wars will go on as long as there is 2 living humans of different ideals.The human mind needs"boogeymen"to fear,whether it be Satan,believers in other ways,or them folks that dress or talk "funny".It would be wonderful if everyone got along and lived in peace,but it will never happen as long as by happenstance some have and some have not.As a matter of fact it somewhat surprises me that these 50 states don't have border wars anymore.All we can do is do our best to tolerate each other and try not to over react to others little pecadillos :)

Or maybe it could just be that we're all hopped up on a sugar high from all the sweets and eager to ring in the new Kind of an "Out with the old, and in with the new" mentality maybe? : )
