SHIFT HAPPENS
Paradigm  noun:   the generally accepted perspective of a particular discipline at a given time 

SHIFT   verb:  to move from one setting or context to another 

Parallax:   noun:  the difference in perception of an event by two observers caused by the difference in their orbit around the event.

The purpose of this page is to provide quick access to events between 1976 and 2012 that either accidentally or through premeditation have shifted or will shift Human consciousness from one context to another - in spite of the prevailing paradigm.

Though some will argue that this sequence could be extended back to the APOLLO 11 Mission, JFK's assassination, Sputnik, or the strange sightings of July, 1947 - the Face on Mars and the end of the Mayan Calendar, are modern milestones set in stone that bracket the undeniable events that will change the lives of everyone on the planet.

The goal of this site is to explore not only how these events may have come about, but what we might do together besides ignoring them. That may be the shift that needs to happen most of all.

The Face 

1976. Scientists, reporters, and guests celebrating at JPL forget to exhale as the Viking orbiter photographs the Unexpected staring back at them from another world.

The Wall

Maybe the Strategic Defense Initiative broke the Soviet piggy bank or maybe it was just the thirst of Russian youth for the Beatles, Levi's, and all things Western that finally allowed Berliners to party on the wall that their friends and loved ones had been shot for climbing. Reagan's legacy is a new Russian hyper-sonic, MIRV Cruise Missile designed to defeat Star Wars, while McCartney has played Red Square and Roger Waters performed The Wall where the Iron Curtain once stood.

THERE IS STILL A CHOICE.

Y2K

The threat of Man's surrender to his own technology finally became a reality in 1999. For the first few hours of the year 2000, no one was completely sure of the future.

"Permanent Republican Majority"

Though not a stated goal until after the re-election of George W. Bush in 2004, descendants of the Third Reich and those who helped them; in control of the White House and Congress, are intent on creating a one-party system to keep dissent and the objections of the Minority in the minority... permanently.

Entrainment Tonight

Who is the 20th hijacker?

Since September 12th, 2001, it has been Zacarias Moussaoui; the only person to be charged in connection with 911. On June 12th it was a detainee at Camp X-Ray. Overnight, the most hated man in America, who had plead guilty to undisclosed charges finally brought against him - a plea that guaranteed that there would be no trial or any further questioning - was no longer the 20th hijacker.

Almost thirty years since the Viking Missions, NASA is faced once again with just how wrong prevailing scientific wisdom can be as Comet Tempel 1 turns out to be a fragment of a shattered world instead of a "dirty snowball".

OIL STORMED

 "Down & Out In Beverly Hills" warned us about China.

How many warnings are necessary?

The BIG ONE

Coronal Mass Ejection, Asteroid strike, global 10.4 earthquake or 500 mph Tsunami.

FREE TIBET OR ELSE.

Whatever else can be said about the Interesting Times between 666 and 999, we're definitely in "OR ELSE".

Y2K12

Did the Authors of the Popol Vuh just get bored with keeping track of time? Will 2012 be an even larger non-event than Y2K? Is December 21st 2012 the end of everything or merely when something starts all over again?? 

Perhaps passage through the Photon Belt or the alignment of our ecliptic with the Galactic Plane will bring an end to the Unexpected once and for all.
