Sitchin RIP

Zecharia Sitchin was 90 years old when he passed On October 9, 2010. He had been ill and hospitalized since July. Sitchin's books on the 12th Planet, a rogue planet that passed through the solar system every 3,600 years, created controversy as the information he translated from the ancient Sumerians ran counter to the cover-up over the pending passage of Planet X (aka 12th Planet, aka Nibiru). Quoting from Sitchin's book Kingship of Heaven:

The Mesopotamian and biblical sources present strong evidence that the orbital period of the 12th Planet is 3,600 years. The number 3,600 was written in Sumerian as a large circle. The epithet for the planet, shar, also meant "a perfect circle" or "a completed cycle". It also meant the number 3,600. The identity of the three terms - planet/orbit/3,600 - could not be a mere coincidence. The reign periods (a Sumerian text) gives are also perfect multiples of the 3,600 year shar. The conclusion that suggests itself is that these shar's of rulership were related to the orbital period shar, 3,600 years.

Sitchin also noted that the ancient Sumerians were aware of our outer planets, Pluto and Neptune, well before modern man, as the Annunaki counted the planets from the outside in when they arrived for their periodic passages. Quoting from Sitchin's book Landing on Planet Earth.

Our astronomy is geared to the notion that Earth is the 3rd planet, which indeed it is if one begins the count from the center of our system, the Sun. But to someone nearing our solar system from the outside, the 1st planet to be encountered would be Pluto, the 2nd Neptune, the 3rd Uranus, the 4th Saturn, the 5th Jupiter, the 6th Mars .. and the Earth would be 7th. We know today that beyond the giant planets Jupiter and Saturn lie more major planets, Uranus and Neptune, and a small planet, Pluto. But such knowledge is quite recent. Uranus was discovered, through the use of improved telescopes, in 1781. Neptune was pinpointed by astronomers (guided by mathmatical calculations) in 1846. It became evident that Neptune was being subjected to unknown gravitational pull, and in 1930 Pluto (was located).

Having enlightened mankind on the periodic passage of Planet X (aka Nibiru), Sitchin undoubtedly came under pressure to dismiss the possibility that another passage could occur anytime soon. He came under attack, primarily for various other theories he presented in his books. Per the Zetas, this was in an attempt to discredit him overall, as the 3,600 year passage period he documented was to be denied, as was the possibility of a passage though the solar system.

ZetaTalk Comment 8/15/1995: Zecharia Sitchin early on in his career as an archeologist discovered patterns that intrigued him. He had a penchant for solving puzzles that could be analyzed in this way, that presented patterns, and the more data he gathered the more intrigued he became. He was hooked. Mankind exhibits a kind of collective amnesia in regard to past pole shifts. Sitchin encountered similar reactions when his puzzle, forming into patterns, pointed to periodic cataclysms, a traveling planet the ancients counted as the 12th Planet, large strapping hominoids who had the appearance of Greek Gods shuttling to and from this visiting 12th Planet, and the inevitable and inescapable conclusion - this would happen to the Earth again! Faced with those rigidly resisting contemplating these conclusions or even glancing at the facts he so meticulously garnered, Sitchin shifted into high gear and sought to convince his critics with yet more facts, until his arguments can scarcely be discounted by all but those in firm denial. However, today one still finds this spread. There are those who read and learn, those who read and become advocates of Sitchin's theories, and those who refuse to read or if pressed to do so nevertheless refuse to absorb or deal with the facts presented.

Sitchin skeptics arm themselves by challenging his conclusions when they are based on ancient Sumerian records that could be interpreted in a number of different ways. Scientists doing research are allowed to present a theory, and set out their research to prove or disprove the accuracy of that theory. They are allowed to be wrong, or partially wrong, and to correct their theory from what is learned and proceed with further research. Sitchin, bearing an alarming message that tends to belittle arrogant humans determined to be God's only creation or frighten those who cannot deal with the thought of pole shifts or visitations by powerful aliens, is not given this latitude. Where it is clear that the giant hominoids had mastered space flight to the extent that man on Earth has with their probes and shuttles and space stations, and where it is clear that the ancient Sumerians were aware of the outer planets only recently discovered by modern man during the past century, other Sitchin conclusions are not so clear as to be based on fact, and thus he lays himself open to criticism.

Sitchin met with the famous astronomer Robert Harrington, who was part of the team that located Planet X via JPL's IRAS balloon in 1983. A dialog between the two is recorded on a video, available for sale from Amazon, called Are We Alone. In this video, Dr. Harrinton confirms that he has read Sitchin's research and agrees with the proposed existence and orbit of the 12th Planet. They also show each other diagrams of the proposed orbit. However, Sitchin steadfastly refused to hypothesize a date for the next return of Nibiru. Per someone who attended a lecture by Sitchin, he refused to speculate.

As I recall from listening to Zecharia Sitchin's Sedona lecture earlier this month, he had no idea when Nibiru would be returning, and responded to several written questions from the audience to the effect that calculating its return would be difficult, if not impossible.

But per Internet reports, he at first speculated it would be another 1,000 years before a return, and only recently moved that date to be within the next 60 or so years. Per the Zetas, this was as much a reluctance to live through a passage as it was cooperation with the cover-up.

ZetaTalk Comment 8/24/2002: Sitchin as we have stated from the beginning of ZetaTalk has personal reluctance to realize the horror will occur in his lifetime, the not-in-my-lifetime response. Thus, any fact in the confusing mix will be used to assure him that it will not come in his lifetime. He additionally does not want to be the bearer of bad tidings, and even when convinced he has been wrong, will not say so, leaving this to others.

Given the controversy, and the fact that Sitchin had moved his date for the next passage closer to the present, some wondered if his death had been expedited. In particular, since his books and theories about Nibiru and the periodic passage were about to be vindicated. Per the Zetas, he was not assassinated, though his will to live might have been compromised by his own desire to avoid the horrors of a pole shift.

ZetaTalk Comment 10/30/2010: Sitchin was not eliminated, as he was never a threat. He cooperated with the cover-up for personal reasons. He did not want to be alive during the forthcoming pole shift, nor did he want to be the bearer of bad tidings. When asked to state a date for the next passage, he first placed the date some 1,000 years hence, ignoring that the Jewish Exodus approximately 3,600 years ago was obviously the last passage. Recently he has closed this gap but still, the date was 60 years or so hence. For an old man, this was, as we have stated, "not-in-his-lifetime". At 90 years of age, did his reluctance to be alive during the coming pole shift and the increasingly obvious Earth changes conspire to cause him to exit early? As we have stated, the will to live is a powerful determinant when fighting illness or debility, and in Sitchin's case the lack of a will to live certainly assisted in his timely death.

Caribbean Crunch

Is the S American Plate starting to roll? The city of Barranquilla is on the border between the Caribbean Plate and the S American Plate, and experienced horrific landslides October 27, 2010.


What is perhaps more significant are the moaning and grinding sounds the citizens of Barranquilla are reportedly hearing. Per the Zetas, this is what would be heard as the S America Plate grinds over the Caribbean Plate, as presented in Issue 207 of this newsletter.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/16/2010: Those living along the border of S America and the hapless Caribbean Plate will experience a great moaning and grinding while the S American Plate glides over the Caribbean Plate, pushing it down with its weight as it does so.

On the other side of the Caribbean Plate, there also evidence of pressure on the Caribbean Plate.

Hot Temperatures Could Mean Worst Caribbean Coral Die-Off in History
October 22, 2010
Scientists show that perhaps this year will be the worst in recorded history for corals in the Caribbean, even worse than the devastation wrought in 2005 when 80% of corals were bleached and 40% died. This graphic from NOAA shows that ocean temperatures in the Carribean in 2010 are higher than in 2005, which could be dire news for the health of reefs.

The plates are heating up, as noted by an astute observer, just where pressure on the colliding plates would occur. The steady tearing apart of the Atlantic is forcing the S America Plate at this point to push under the Caribbean Plate. This is notably a volcanic region. At this point on the Caribbean Plate there is pressure, as the plate is locked against the Cocos Plate to the west and cannot easily move toward the west, and the hump of the S American Plate creates conflict for any sliding past S America at this point too.

Observation: you will see that the high ocean temperatures correspond exactly to the eastern edge of the Caribbean tectonic plate and the southern "concave notch" in the Caribbean tectonic plate - two places where the Mid-Atlantic Ridge push to the west would hit and the torque-rotation-toward-west of the of the South American tectonic plate would push and squeeze.
The eastern boundary is a subduction zone where oceanic crust of the North American Plate is being subducted under the Caribbean Plate. Subduction forms the volcanic islands of the Lesser Antilles Volcanic Arc from the Virgin Islands in the north to the islands off the coast of Venezuela in the south. Along the geologically complex southern boundary, the Caribbean Plate interacts with the South American Plate forming Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago (all on the Caribbean Plate), and islands off the coast of Venezuela (including the Leeward Antilles) and Colombia.

The Zetas have stated that the S America Roll will occur after the disaster in Indonesia, where the tongue holding Indonesia sinks. And as with the Indonesia disaster, the S America roll will happen suddenly.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/9/2010: S America is showing signs of a roll to the west. Explosions on islands just to the north of the S American Plate occurred recently, on Bonaire and Trinidad-Tobago, and the Andes are regularly being pummeled. There is a relationship. As the Indo-Australia Plate lifts and slides, this allows the Pacific plates to shift west, which allows S America to shift west also.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/16/2010: The primary effect of the S American roll will be on the small islands in the Caribbean which ride just north of the S America Plate border, as these will lose elevation suddenly, and in some cases sink entirely.

Indonesia Volcanoes

Indonesia volcanoes are suddenly erupting, one after the other. This is a dramatic and noticeable increase in activity within only a few days. Merapi erupted and then erupted again on October 31 just as evacuees were returning. Anak Krakatau volcano in Sunda Strait erupted on October 30, after having just been included in a group of 8 worrisome volcanoes in an October 29, 2010 announcement. All these volcanoes are along the tongue of the plate holding Indonesia,

Eight Volcanoes Status Raised to Level II
October 29, 2010 - The Centre of Vulcanology and Mitigation of Geology Disaster, a sub-department of the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources, announced that the status of eight volcanoes has been raised to level II or "caution level", indicating increasing activity of these volcanoes. The eight volcanoes are: (1) Mount Sinabung, in Karo, North Sumatera; (2) Mount Talang, Solok, West Sumatera; (3) Mount Anak Krakatau, Lampung (Child of Krakatau Volcano); (4) Mount Papandayan, Garut, West Java; (5) Mount Slamet, Tegal, Central Java; (6) Mount Dieng, Wonosobo, Central Java; (7) Mount Semeru, Lumajang, East Java; and Mount Bromo, Probolinggo, East Java.
Second Indonesian Volcano Erupts
October 30, 2010
Indonesia's Anak Krakatau volcano in Sunda Strait, straddling East Java and Sumatra, has spewed ash and flaming rocks. Officials raised alert levels to 'high' as the volcano showed signs of increased activity, producing 117 small eruptions. Anak Krakatau means 'Child of Krakatau', named so because it rose in the place of Krakatoa volcano after it blew itself apart in one of the most destructive eruptions in history in 1883. The area is a popular tourist site and many villagers farm on the slopes of nearby Ibu Krakatau (Mother of Krakatau) on the same island. Several volcanos in Indonesia increased their activities recently following Mount Merapi's eruption on Tuesday.

Merapi Eruption Threat Persists
October 31, 2010
An Indonesian volcano has unleashed more searing ash clouds, sending thousands of people who risked a trip home fleeing its slopes. Nearly 40 people have been killed since Mount Merapi began erupting earlier this week. More than 2,000 troops had to be called in on Saturday to force men, women and children to leave. Amid these developments, another volcano has begun pushing clouds of ash and molten rock into the air, signalling an impending eruption. Officials have raised the alert level for Anak Krakatau to "high", and have issued warnings for people to stay away from the area. Officials have also warned that two more volcanoes are threatening to erupt. Mount Karangetang, on Siau island in North Sulawesi, and Mount Ibu, on Halmahera island in North Maluku, have had their alert level raised to standby, just one below a full eruption.

Per the Zetas, this increased activity is because the pockets of magma formed under the volcanoes are under pressure, and this increased pressure will be present until the tongue is pushed down, at which time the pressure will in fact be eased! But the increased activity in these volcanoes is just another sign of the intense pressure the plate tongue holding Indonesia is experiencing.

ZetaTalk Prediction 10/23/2010: Will Krakatoa erupt, giving warning that the bending of the tongue holding Indonesia is about to begin? Surprisingly, the nervous volcanoes in Indonesia will not increase their eruption much beyond where they are today, during the elevation drop. The reason is because the pressure of plate movement is going elsewhere, in a different direction. Volcanoes erupt because magma is pushed into pockets near the surface, without an opportunity to escape into the general flow of magma that takes place under the plates. Rather than compress the tongue holding Indonesia, the dropping of the tongue allows this tongue to expand, to fan out under the curve of the Indo-Australian Plate. At the present time, the pockets under this edge of the tongue are increasingly compressed, thus the increased activity noted in Indonesian volcanoes recently.

Per Indonesian volcanologists, the number of active volcanoes in Indonesia is highly unusual. They even speculate that "plate restructuring" is underway. Perhaps they have been reading ZetaTalk!

Indonesia Volcano Erupts Aanew; 21 More Rumble
November 1, 2010
The government has raised alert levels of 21 other volcanoes to the second- and third- highest levels in the last two months because they have shown an increase in activity. Many of those are already rumbling and belching out heavy black ash. Indonesia has several volcanos smoldering at any given time, but there are normally only five to 10 on the third-highest alert level, indicating an increase in seismic activity and visible changes in the crater, and none at the second-highest, signifying an eruption is possible within two weeks. He said monitors noticed more volcanos were exhibiting seismic activity starting Sept. 2. Such an increase could indicate maybe there is a major plate restructuring going on, and that would be significant.
