This has been a strange time, for sure. Not only getting sick, and feeling so tired I've felt like a dishrag wrung through one of those old fashioned roller machine washing machines, but watching a parade of very weird news stories. This story is no different. It's one of those stories that many people sent me versions of. As one might imagine, the story itself as reported was one of those "nothing to see here, move along" things, which naturally led many people, myself included, to question the narrative (what little narrative there was).
The story itself? Well, it's nothing more than a peculiar power outage in the San Francisco-Bay area, LA-San Diego, and, a continent away, New York City:
Little explanation was forthcoming, leaving the field wide open to speculation.The official narrative remains focused on an inconvenient coincidence.
But there were also the usual explanations: terrorism, sabotage, and so on. I have to admit, that when I read the story, my first though ran to these lines. For one thing, the inclusion of the Bay area brought to mind the attacks on internet servers a couple of years ago, and for that matter, the attack on the silicon valley electrical sub-station, an attack that even by official lights was carried out by professionals. Then, too, there was the attack in Arizona that severed internet connections between Flagstaff and Phoenix.
Such simultaneous power outages might, according to some, be a similar coordinated attack:
But if so, an attack by whom? And for what purpose? Strangely, all this happens within a broad time frame that is unusual in terms of events for other reasons: the attacks on Syria occurred, drills for nuclear attacks are planned in Manhattan, the world's attention is focused on North Korea. Interestingly enough, the Zero Hedge article immediately above also entertains the ideas of cyber attacks, coordinated and directed electromagnetic pulses, and even a deliberate act by the federal government drilling and gaming out such attacks.
Regular readers here know me by now: all these thoughts ran through my head the moment I heard about the story. It's my job: I speculate on things. But this isn't exactly my run-of-the-mill "high octane speculation." If others are already thinking and writing articles about it, it would seem not to be very high octane at all.
But then there was this, and this one really made my high octane speculation wheels go into overdrive:
Now, stop and ponder that sequence for a moment: (1) the story of power outages in the Bay area, LA-San Diego, and NYC is reported; then, soon thereafter (2) various theories are put forward, including cyber-attacks, federal "drills gone live", EMP weapons, and so on, and then (3) a day after the event and quickly after the theories, the idea of solar geo-magnetic storms are advanced, with corresponding data for the affected regions being provided. Interesingly enough, one of the sites - Zero Hedge - which first reported the story and then the cyber attack EMP theories, also quickly reported the solar storm idea.
It's that sequence of reportage and speculations on the story that have me wondering. Leaving aside for the moment the possibility that the whole thing - including the various speculations - are all carefully contrived experiments in story-creation and manipulation (which for those following my CERN-Mandela Effect-Data Correlation Experiments-Multiverse ideas, I don't rule out of the picture), assume for a moment that none of that is involved. What disturbs me is what remains when one strips the story of that speculative possibility. What remains are (1) power outages that appear to be (2) coordinated in distinct areas of the grid, (3) the idea of "attack", and (4) solar storms.
Now that really is high octane speculation. It is beyond high octane. It's cosmologically kooky speculation, for obviously, most people won't think of "solar storms" and the idea of "deliberate attack" in the same conceptual space. It's impossible. It would require the ability to engineer stellar-sized systems. And the only way to do that would be to engineer such affects via magnetic resonance and coupling the Earth's and the Sun's magnetic systems together. While all of that might be within the realm of feasibility of some Mad Telsa-like scientist in the Mad Scientist Department of DARPA, the whole cluster of articles would also suggest the possibility of "pointing and aiming" the affect, which adds yet another level of impossibility to an already impossible task.
Double impossible. Nay, impossible, squared.
Whew! I feel much better now. I'm relieved.
See you on the flip side...
