POLE SHIFT: Sol, Planet X, & NASA - The Messenger from Mercury?!

"I looked when He opened the sixth seal, and behold, there was a great earthquake; and the Sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the Moon became like blood. And the stars of heaven fell to the Earth, as a fig tree drops its late figs when it is shaken by a mighty wind. Then the sky receded as a scroll when it is rolled up, and every mountain and island was moved out of its place." - The Book of Revelations 6:12-14.

If you are to believe the data coming out of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), then it seems only fair to recognize that something monumental is happening on Sol, our Sun.  At least on the south pole, where solar activity is disproportionately more active than the north pole. NASA has established that the south pole is now energized with positive magnetism, when it is only supposed to have a negative magnetic charge. In a 2003 article, entitled A Star With Two North Poles, the space agency declared that the Sun's magnetic field had gone haywire with dramatic effects being felt throughout the entire solar system.
Normally, our star, like Earth itself, has a north and a south magnetic pole. But for nearly a month beginning in March 2000, the Sun's south magnetic pole faded, and a north pole emerged to take its place. The Sun had two north poles. "It sounds impossible, but it's true," says space physicist Pete Riley of Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) in San Diego. "In fact, it's a fairly normal side-effect of the solar cycle." Every 11 years around solar maximum, the Sun's magnetic field goes haywire as the Sun's underlying magnetic dynamo reorganizes itself. The March 2000 event was simply a part of that upheaval. "The south pole never really vanished," notes Riley. It migrated north and, for a while, became a band of south magnetic flux smeared around the Sun's equator. By May 2000 the south pole had returned to its usual spot near the Sun's southern spin axis--but not for long. In 2001 the solar magnetic field completely flipped; the south and north poles swapped positions, which is how they remain now. - NASA Science.
What could have influenced the Sun's dipolar magnetic flip? Is it a sign of the arrival of solar maximum, the period of greatest solar activity in its solar cycle? What could account for the distortion of the magnetic field on its south pole and why would NASA argue that it is a "normal side-effect of the solar cycle," given that they have since announced that the next solar maximum would be the strongest since 1958? What could be having this effect on the south pole and is it any evidence of a forthcoming reversal of Earth's magnetic field?

In a recent report, the British Geological Survey (BGS) provided evidence that the magnetic reversal has already begun, with the magnetic flux weakened significantly.
The South Atlantic Anomaly (SAA) is known to be growing in extent and spreading westwards from South Africa, as the Earth’s internal magnetic field rapidly weakens in this region. This may be early evidence of a forthcoming reversal in the direction of the Earth’s internal magnetic field. We do not know in detail precisely what occurs during such reversals, including the changes observed in the magnetic field and the time a reversal takes to complete. However these factors are important in knowing where the radiation risk may be increased and how the atmosphere might respond. Earth’s magnetic field has had many highs, lows and reversals in its past. The last reversal was around 800,000 years ago. So the Earth is known to be able to re-generate its field and has done so during human pre-history. Understanding the development of the SAA may therefore be significant in understanding the reversal process and its impact on life and the natural environment.
In 2009, National Geographic announced that Earth's north magnetic pole is racing towards Russia at almost 40 miles a year, due to magnetic changes in the planet's core.
The core is too deep for scientists to directly detect its magnetic field. But researchers can infer the field's movements by tracking how Earth's magnetic field has been changing at the surface and in space. Now, newly analyzed data suggest that there's a region of rapidly changing magnetism on the core's surface, possibly being created by a mysterious "plume" of magnetism arising from deeper in the core. And it's this region that could be pulling the magnetic pole away from its long-time location in northern Canada, said Arnaud Chulliat, a geophysicist at the Institut de Physique du Globe de Paris in France.
Of course, you only need to reflect to early this year when the shift in the magnetic north pole led to the closing of the Tampa International Airport's runway, in-order to be redesigned for the new alignment with Earth's magnetic axis. Adjustments that was also done at London's Stansted Airport in 2009.

So, what could account for the geomagnetic reversal, the periodic reversal of Earth's magnetic field? Are we looking at the shifting of plate tectonics over the fluid asthenosphere, the upper mantle of the Earth, or the slow expansive movement of continental drift? Or is it due to the arrival of an incoming planetary object into the Solar System, effectively causing a gravitational pull on the south pole? Does it relates to the shift of the Sun's poles every 11 years, at the peak of each sunspot cycle?
The Sun's magnetic poles will remain as they are now, with the north magnetic pole pointing through the Sun's southern hemisphere, until the year 2012 when they will reverse again. This transition happens, as far as we know, at the peak of every 11-year sunspot cycle -- like clockwork. Earth's magnetic field also flips, but with less regularity. Consecutive reversals are spaced 5 thousand years to 50 million years apart. The last reversal happened 740,000 years ago. Some researchers think our planet is overdue for another one, but nobody knows exactly when the next reversal might occur. - NASA Science.
Certainly the latest news out of Space Weather about the "iconic eruption" on the Sun, makes you wonder if we will shortly experience this reversal, especially given the constant planetary tremors, rising ocean levels, crustal layers slide-slip, and mantle stretching of the Earth.

A huge filament of magnetism and hot plasma blasted off the sun's southwestern limb on March 19th around 1200 UT. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory (SDO) recorded the action. The eruption was not Earth-directed, but it did attract plenty of attention on our planet. Many amateur astronomers in Europe witnessed the blast and said it was the biggest one they'd ever seen. This event continues the recent trend of increasing solar activity, and shows anew that Solar Cycle 24 is gaining steam after a long period of relative quiet.

This comes against the background of SDO's capture of a solar wind stream flowing from a minor coronal hole, that is schedule to reach Earth on or about March 23rd. The effects of these hot plasma and solar wind streams on Earth's magnetosphere, might be a clue as what is NASA's real mission objectives for their Messenger spacecraft's orbit around the planet Mercury, given the following:

And according to Sean C. Solomon of the Carnegie Institution in Washington, the mission's chief scientist, Messenger's third and final fly-by of the planet in 2009 already has shown a wildly fluctuating and mysterious magnetic field. "It looked as though we were seeing a complete collapse of the magnetic field," he said. "This is an incredibly dynamic magnetosphere." Equally dynamic is the planet's history of volcanism. From limited evidence grabbed during Messenger's last fly-by, Mercury may have undergone a violent era of volcanic eruptions only about 2 billion years ago - a comparatively young time, because the entire solar system had finished forming around the sun roughly 4.5 billion years ago. "The planet is turning out to be much more dynamic than people appreciated," Solomon said. - San Francisco Chronicle
 "... complete collapse of the magnetic field..."? Sounds just like what is happening on Earth, no?

Consider the following statement from NASA:
Earth has a dipole magnetic field. It's like a dumbell with a north pole on one end and a south pole at the other. Usually the Sun's magnetic field is dipolar, too. But not always. "During solar maximum there are quadrupole and octupole components as well," says Riley. That's a physicist's way of saying that the Sun's magnetic field is more like 4 or 8 dumbbells jumbled together. When Solar Max is near, these components rearrange themselves with sometimes-odd results--like a double north pole. 

According to Professor James McCanney, the orbit of a large planetary body will intersect with that of Earth in the near future. In his book Planet X, Comets and Earth Changes and its companion booklet, Surviving Planet X's Passage, he posited the view that this extra-solar object will come into our solar system and pass somewhere between Earth and Mercury. McCanney also believes that this passage will come directly from beneath Earth's south pole and will become visible shortly. If he is correct, would that explain the cataclysmic Earth changes witness in the weather anomalies in Australia, earthquakes in New Zealand and the monumental seismic upheavals along the Pacific "Ring of Fire" with earthquakes, volcanism, tsunamis, heavy rains, flooding inundation and land sinking in places like Japan, Indonesia, Chile, Vietnam, and the Philippines? Could that also explain NASA's mission to Mercury, since it is speculated that it will be destroyed by the passage of this incoming object? Could Mercury be a Messenger of Planet X's arrival?

“NASA wants to downplay these big objects because they don’t have a theoretical place for them. But reality is knocking at their door.” -  Professor James McCanney.

JAPAN QUAKE: The Sinking of Japan - Record Magnitude Aftershocks!

According to the latest data coming out of the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA), there has been a record number of aftershocks registered in Japan following the massive magnitude 9 earthquake that devastated the northeastern sections of the country last week Friday, leading to a devastating tsunami and a nuclear meltdown. JMA registered and recorded a stunning and earth-shattering 262 aftershocks of magnitude 5 or greater in just seven days, with the majority, centred along the fault line.

The frequency of aftershocks of that magnitude until noon Friday was the highest recorded in Japan and more than 2.5 times the frequency detected after a magnitude 8.2 earthquake struck eastern Hokkaido in 1994. Meanwhile, the agency lowered the likelihood of aftershocks measuring at least upper 5 on the Japanese seismic intensity scale of 7 within three days to 30 percent from 40 percent. There have been three aftershocks of magnitude 7 or greater since the initial quake, including a magnitude 7.5 temblor that occurred shortly afterward, while there have been 49 aftershocks of magnitude 6 or more. The aftershocks have occurred in waters off a wide stretch of land from Iwate to Ibaraki prefectures in a zone 500 km long and about 200 km wide. "There has been a slight downward trend, but they remain frequent," said Takashi Yokota, head of the agency's Earthquake Prediction Information Division. "We need to remain vigilant because an earthquake focused in an oceanic area could cause strong aftershocks as late as 10 to 20 days afterward." - The Japan Times.
At the time of writing, the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) recorded 17 aftershocks over the last two days of magnitude 5 and over, with the largest being a 6.1 near the east coast of Honshu. The telemetry data from station MAJO in Matsushiro in Japan, reflects the continued dramatic upheaval of the plate tectonics along the Pacific "Ring of Fire."

I would expect the aftershocks to continued along this average, with a high probability that another great earthquake will follow soon, that will eventually lead to the sinking of the majority of Japan. According to Nancy Lieder, founder of the website ZetaTalk,  the Pacific is undergoing some form of compression, down along the island chain that forms the Hawaiian Islands and on down to the Society Islands.
Plate tectonics involves various dramas on the plate borders - clash or subduction bounaries, slip-slide boundaries, and stretch zones boundaries. Where plate borders clash, one plate pushing against another, this most often has one of the plates either riding over or pushing under the other. Such border clashes are invariably accompanied by massive quakes in the range of magnitude 8-10. Japan, the Andes, the West Coast of the N American continent, and the Himalayas are examples of such border clashes. During such clashes there will be a point where the pressure is greatest, and that will be the spot where a quake will occur.
The earthquake and subsequent aftershocks is definitely revealing a pull on the substantial rock that comprises the Pacific Ocean's floor underneath Japan. It should be remembered and noted that the magnitude 9 earthquake had moved the main island by 8 feet, shifting the coastline as far as 13 feet to the east. Indicating a westward movement towards Eurasia of the plate tectonics. According to data from JMA, USGS,  and Japan's Geonet network, the quake had also shifted Earth on its axis by about 6.5 inches, rotating the planet faster and shortening the length of each day by about 1.8 millionths of a second.
