The New York Times

predicts Massive Population Reduction…

Amazingly, The New York Times – 22 May 2021 – predicts massive population reduction over the next few decades.

“Fewer babies’ cries. More abandoned homes. Toward the middle of this century, as deaths start to exceed births, changes will come that are hard to fathom.”


“All over the world, countries are confronting population stagnation and a fertility bust, a dizzying reversal unmatched in recorded history that will make first-birthday parties a rarer sight than funerals, and empty homes a common eyesore.”

And it continues,

“Maternity wards are already shutting down in Italy. Ghost cities are appearing in northeastern China.

Universities in South Korea can’t find enough students, and in Germany, hundreds of thousands of properties have been razed, with the land turned into parks.”

Is it all true?

It remains to be verified…


At no time does the article mention the eugenist nature of deliberate population reduction, in connection with the Covid plandemic, the coerced and by many accounts poisonous, vaccination campaign, with a non-vaccine, but instead a novel, totally untested mRNA-type “gene therapy”.

The US CDC has allowed to be applied as an “emergency measure” in these dire circumstances of a ‘pandemic’, that actually lacks all characteristics of a ‘pandemic’, but has to be pumped up to make it appear as a ‘pandemic’ – with literally almost all deaths appearing from whatever causes – even car accidents – can be – andmust” be categorized as Covid deaths…

In the US, hospitals get paid US$ 13,000 for every Covid-diagnosed patient and US$ 39,000 for every “Covid-patient” put on a ventilator.

Earlier this year, doctors in NY have come to the conclusion that more than 80% off ventilator patients do not survive the ventilator.

See this

But, be that as it may – the current “loosening-up” of Covid restrictions that the US and many European countries are experiencing, is bringing out happiness, smiles, festive thinking and cheerful feeling by the population – in the firm hope the plandemic is over

This may be just a ruse and prelude to much worse to come. Hopefully this suspicion is wrong.

While there is no concrete evidence, there is this uneasy feeling that with the later northern-hemisphere fall approaching, we will be hit by a “new” lab-made “variant” – much stronger, that requires more and more oppressive, dictatorial government measures, more coerced vaxxing with gene-therapy that could affect mankind’s neurological system.

(For further details see Pfizer Vaccine Confirmed to Cause Neurodegenerative Diseases – Study)

The NYT goes through great lengths trying to explain why the world population goes into recess and outright decline, without ever mentioning Covid and its nefarious deadly agenda.

“Though some countries continue to see their populations grow, especially in Africa, fertility rates are falling nearly everywhere else.

Demographers now predict that by the latter half of the century or possibly earlier, the global population will enter a sustained decline for the first time.”

Why would the fertility rate suddenly go down in “developed” countries?

Because people realize that to save the planet, the world needs fewer, much fewer “eaters” and consumers?

Or rather does it have something to do with the widely coerced false Covid “vaccines”? – see Dr. Mercola’s video below.

Isn’t this precisely what the GatesRockefellersKissinger et al clan has in mind?

Is that why the mRNA-type injections – CDC’s emergency approval as “gene-therapy” – include anti-fertility and sterilization components?

And – can you imagine – CDC has recently recommended giving this unproven, untested “gene-therapy injection to pregnant women,” when never before and under no circumstances pregnant women should be administered untested “experimental” medication.

In fact, the abortion rate of pregnant women receiving the mRNA-type inoculation is as high as 30% – probably considerably higher if unreported cases are taken into account.

Listen to Dr. Joseph Mercola:

There is the general notion that Covid is not about health or immunity, but rather about depopulating the world; an eugenist agenda, if you will.

Mike Whitney expresses a clear view in which direction this unnecessary Covid vaccination drive is going. It has nothing to do with health protection of the people.

To the contrary:

It is about depopulation

These two quotes say it all.

“There is absolutely no need for vaccines to extinguish the ‘pandemic’… You do not vaccinate people who aren’t at risk from a disease.

You also don’t set about planning to vaccinate millions of fit and healthy people with an [experimental] vaccine that hasn’t been extensively tested on human subjects.”

Dr. Mike Yeadon PhD, Pfizer’s former Vice President and Chief Scientist for Allergy & Respiratory Disease.

“What we know about coronavirus from 30 years of experience is that a coronavirus vaccine has a unique peculiarity, which is any attempt at making the vaccine has resulted in the creation of a class of antibodies that actually make vaccinated people sicker when they ultimately suffer exposure to the wild virus.”

Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

The NYT is quoting Frank Swiaczny, a German demographer who was chief of population trends and analysis for the United Nations until last year:

“A paradigm shift is necessary. Countries need to learn to live with and adapt to [a population] decline.”

To enhance this paradigm shift – and to make it appear – and convince you, the reader, that this is a normal unstoppable phenomenon, the NYT predicts, or rather scares you, by speculating / anticipating,

“The ramifications and responses have already begun to appear, especially in East Asia and Europe.

From Hungary to China, from Sweden to Japan, governments are struggling to balance the demands of a swelling older cohort with the needs of young people whose most intimate decisions about childbearing are being shaped by factors both positive (more work opportunities for women) and negative (persistent gender inequality and high living costs).”

We know this is a false pretense, and is a totally manufactured argument to make you look the other way, when within two to three years you may see massive dying of people way below the average statistical life expectancy.

We all know, gender inequality has been persisting in the west for the last at least 2000 years.

And, while the cost of living has been rising steadily in the first 50 years after WWII in industrialized countries, it has been rather stagnant over the last couple of decades.

To the contrary, in some cases – US, Europe – a rather deflationary trend has appeared. A clear sign for it, is negative interest rates in many industrialized countries.

So, the NYT is trying to make you believe what isn’t – all to justify their “prediction” of a massive population reduction; to make you get used to the diabolical Covid-plan – and perhaps to sow just a little bit of fear.

Since the mRNA “vaxxes” are experimental, there is no history on whether or not the body will be able to clean itself from disastrous side effects, like blood clotting, leading to thrombosis, potential paralysis and death.

Scientific predictions are that mRNA-type injections affect the human genome, and the body most likely will never detox from anything affecting the DNA.

If this assumption is correct, it means, in short, you will never be the same again, and your health may be negatively impacted for the rest of your life.

This is, without question, a crime of mass genocide against humanity.

It coincides with Dr. Joseph Mercola’s views – see above, as well as Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi on blood clotting, and the disastrous health consequences, i.e. leading to brain strokes, paralyses and death.

In the same vein Vaccine Impact of 23 May 2021 refers to five reputed doctors, who discuss transmission from those injected by the mRNA vaccine to those who have not been vaxxed.

These scientists all agree that unless one realizes that these shots are designed as bioweapons for the purpose of reducing the world’s population, you will never fully understand what these shots and Big Pharma are capable of doing and how to take measures to protect yourself.

The NYT gently prepares us for this crime, calling this coming “depopulation” a natural phenomenon, due to a turn in demographics – which is to be expected due to our western “abundant lifestyle”, and due to man-made climate change (mea-culpa, mea-culpa), resulting in reduced harvests – famine – in the developing world, or Global South.

“This is an intentional world war on human blood,” according to Dr. Sherri Tenpenny and Nobel Laureate, Dr. Luc Montagnier, as well as Dr. Mike Yeadon, ex-Pfizer VP and Chief of Pfizer Science – and others.

“The injections will kill and will never stop killing.”

Dr. Montagnier, among the world’s top virologists, projects a drastically reduced life expectancy of many who have taken the,

kill shot injection“…

There are both medical and economic reasons and causes for a drastic world population to which the NYT alerts us.

Why would they do that…?

To Prepare us for one of the most horrendous crimes in recent human history:

Inventing (meaning man-made) an invincible corona virus…

After a decision of the World Economic Forum (WEF), in January 2020, WHO called the virus in January 2020 first SARS-CoV-2 – named after the SARS virus that hit China from 2002-2003, then, a few weeks later, WHO renamed this invisible “beast” – instrument of manufacturing fear:


The sudden shock of being exposed to a worldwide epidemic cum ‘pandemic’ (according to WHO’s sudden new criteria), created a fear-‘pandemic’ under which people are vulnerable and accept everything – almost in the hope the deadly danger would go away.

So, also a WEF decision, WHO declared this actually minor disease on 11 March 2020 as a ‘pandemic’, when there where worldwide, according to WHO statistics only 44,279 positive cases and 1440 deaths outside China.

The fear increased, and the “Shock Doctrine” worked.

All 193 UN member countries accepted the mid-March 2020 total lockdown – and this without a medical justification.

The Shock Doctrine” (2007), by Naomi Klein, describing how disaster capitalism takes advantage of shock situations, natural or man-made, to implement new rules and regulation, that otherwise would have not been readily accepted.

Another example is the US Patriot Act that was for years under preparation, way before 9/11; just waiting for a catastrophe – i.e., 9/11 – to be rushed through and accepted by the US Congress.

It took away some 80% of people’s freedoms and converted the laws of the land quasi into a permanent Martial Law – and it is still applicable today, even with some convenient additions for the reigning financial elite.


All 193 UN member countries at once – an epidemiological impossibility…

Yet, people around the globe accepted the new rule – which eventually destroyed the world economy, decimated it to the point where small and medium size corporations were literally wiped out, putting people jobless in the street, fending for means of survival, increasing poverty rates worldwide exponentially.

Unemployment and famine skyrocketed.

The consequence, especially in the Global South, despair, suffering from being without shelter, no food – often leading to suicide and if not to death by famine.

However, those few billionaires on top, who pretend soon be ruling the One World Order, increased their combined fortune in just a few months by some 200 billion dollars.

The World Food Program – WFP estimated total population suffering from acute famine at more than a quarter of a billion (265 million) by end 2020, about half of them are Covid-related – and steadily raising.

“These new numbers show the scale of the catastrophe we are facing,” says the WFP.

Many of them will not survive, but precise figures are not known. As time goes on, they will become catastrophic, resulting in hundreds of thousands of deaths.

This is the high-crime result of the diabolical supra-cabal that invented Agenda ID2020, UN Agenda 2030, the Great Reset – a criminal worldwide suffering particularly for the already poor and vulnerable.

According to Dr. Sucharit Bhakdi, German microbiologist, and as reported in The New American on 16 April 2021 in an article entitled “Covid shots to Decimate the World Population“.

Dr. Bhakdi warns that the COVID hysteria is based on lies and that the COVID “vaccines”, especially the mRNA type, are set to cause a global catastrophe and a possible decimation of the human population.

Starting off, Dr. Bhakdi explains that the PCR test has been abused to produce fear in a way that is unscientific. Next, he explains what the mRNA vaccines are going to do to the human body.

Among other concerns, he expects massive deadly blood clotting [already occurring] as well as immune system responses that will destroy the human body.

Finally, Bhakdi, who warned of impending “doom” during a Fox News interview that went viral, calls for criminal prosecutions of the people responsible and an immediate halt to this global experiment. See this

This provides some background for the NYT article – background which of course, the New York Times does not mention.

It appears that the Times’ concern is foremost warning and preparing people on what might come, but also, spreading more fear, make people more vulnerable, weaker, further breaking down the human auto-defense system.

The kind of language applied by the NYT piece, leaves an innocent reader defenseless, in fear,

“caving in to whatever may come”…

Precisely what they want

A Positive Outlook

However, there is hope.

The NYT article doesn’t mention ‘Hope’.

The best way for humanity to respond to the Covid Planetary Predicament is to collectively resist by all means vaccination and actively object the digitization of your personal data as well as of money.

You thereby resist being taken over by Artificial Intelligence – being enslaved by a super financial elite.

We clearly have the power in us to overcome this diabolical tyranny that hovers over us – almost across the globe without fault…

It is a matter of believing in ourselves, the strength of collective positive and loving thinking – and in the power of solidarity…

In occult lore, the Nine Unknown Men are a millennia-old secret society founded by the Indian Emperor Asoka c. 270 BCE.

According to the legend, upon his conversion to Buddhism after a massacre during one of his wars, the Emperor founded the society of the Nine to preserve and develop knowledge that would be dangerous to humanity if it fell into the wrong hands.

The Nine were also charged by Asoka with manipulating the culture of India to present an image of a backwards and mystically-oriented people to the outside world in order to conceal the advanced scientific knowledge that was being accumulated within.

Some versions of the story include an additional motivation for the Emperor to conceal scientific knowledge: remnants of the Rama Empire, an Indian version of Atlantis, which according to Hindu scripture was destroyed by advanced weaponry 15000 years ago.

Numerous figures who straddled the line between occultism and science fiction writing, most prominently (and apparently first) Louis Jacolliot, Talbot Mundy, and later Louis Pauwels and Jacques Bergier in their
Morning of the Magicians, propagated the story of The Nine claiming that the society occasionally revealed itself to wise outsiders such as Pope Sylvester II who was said to have received, among other things, training in supernatural powers and a robotic talking head from the group. In more recent times, according to this circle, the Nine assisted humanity by revealing the secret of the Cholera vaccine.

Among conspiracy theorists the Nine Unknown is often cited as one of the oldest and most powerful secret societies in the world. Unusually for the conspiracist subculture, the image of the group is largely though not entirely benign. Theosophists also believe the Nine to be a real organization that is working for the good of the world.

Some modern Indian scientists such as Jagdish Chandra Bose were said to believe in or even to be member of the Nine although documentation on this issue is predictably scant.

The nine books

Each of the Nine is supposedly responsible for guarding and improving a single book. These books each deal with a different branch of potentially hazardous knowledge.

Traditionally, the books are said to cover the following subjects:

  1. Propaganda and Psychological warfare.

  2. Physiology, including instructions on how to perform the “touch of death.” One account has Judo being a product of material leaked from this book.

  3. Microbiology, and, according to more recent speculation, Biotechnology. In some versions of the myth, the waters of the Ganges are purified with special microbes designed by the Nine and released into the river at a secret base in the Himalayas.

  4. Alchemy, including the transmutation of metals. In India, there is a persistent rumor that during times of drought or other natural disasters temples and religious organizations receive large quantities of gold from an unknown source.

  5. Communication, including intercourse with extraterrestrials.

  6. Gravitation. Book 6 is said to contain the instructions necessary to build a Vimana, sometimes referred to as the “ancient UFOs of India.”

  7. Cosmology

  8. Light

  9. Sociology, including rules concerning the evolution of societies and how to predict their downfall.

According to some interpretations of surviving texts, India’s future it seems happened way back in its past.

Take the case of the Yantra Sarvasva, said to have been written by the sage Maharshi Bhardwaj. This consists of as many as 40 sections of which one, the Vaimanika Prakarana dealing with aeronautics, has eight chapters, a hundred topics and 500 sutras.

Bhardwaj describes vimana, or aerial craft, as being of three classes:

  • those that travel from place to place

  • those that travel from one country to another

  • those that travel between planets

Of special concern among these were the military planes whose functions were delineated in some very considerable detail and which read today like something clean out of science fiction.

For instance they had to be:

  • impregnable, unbreakable, non-combustible and indestructible

  • capable of coming to a dead stop in the twinkling of an eye

  • invisible to enemies

  • capable of listening to the conversations and sounds in hostile planes

  • technically proficient to see and record things, persons, incidents and situations going on inside enemy planes

  • know at every stage the direction of movement of other aircraft in the vicinity

  • capable of rendering the enemy crew into a state of suspended animation, intellectual torpor or complete loss of consciousness

  • capable of destruction

  • manned by pilots and co-travelers who could adapt in accordance with the climate in which they moved

  • temperature regulated inside

  • constructed of very light and heat absorbing metals

  • provided with mechanisms that could enlarge or reduce images and enhance or diminish sounds

Now notwithstanding the fact that such a contraption would resemble a cross between an American state-of-the-art Stealth Fighter and a flying saucer,

does it mean that air and space travel was well known to ancient Indians and airplanes flourished in India when the rest of the world was just about learning the rudiments of agriculture?

Not really [the perception of the absence of proof is no proof of the proof’s absence – Jai Maharaj], for the manufacturing processes described alongside are delightfully diffuse and deliberately vague.

But it does display a breathtaking expanse of imagination which, had it ever been implemented, would have propelled us even further than Star Trek.

This article appeared in Sagengate Zeiten, Issue 6/2010, Vol. 12.

What will happen in 2012 – or, in the Mayan calendar,

The question has been the subject of many books and one blockbuster movie. No-one seems to know, but there is ample speculation: from the return of Zecharia Sitchin’s aliens from the theoretical twelfth planet in our solar system to global annihilation, everyone seems to have an opinion as to what 2012 is about.

It might therefore come as a surprise that for the Mayan civilization itself – those who worked the date of December 21, 2012 into their mythology – it was no mystery at all!

The Mayan prophecy to do with 2012 was that it would signal the return of “The Nine”.

“The Nine” are mentioned in an inscription on Monument 6 of the Mayan site of Tortuguero, in the Mexican state of Tabasco. The monument was erected in 669 AD and is one of the very few pre-Conquest sources that mention 2012. Various translations or partial translations of the inscription exist.

This is the most common one:

“At the next creation, the Bolon Yokte Ku, or Nine Support Gods, will return.”

However, the actual word “return”, sometimes translated as “descent”, is not intact on the monument.

Still, it is a safe conclusion to make that the missing word is return. Why? Because other Mayan sources reference the return of these deities at the ending of each baktun. Hence, they are expected to emanate on Earth in 2012 too.

Who are the Bolon Yokte Ku – The Nine?

They have variously been translated as,

  • the God of Nine Strides

  • the Nine-Footed God

  • Jaguar-Foot-Tree

  • Nine-Dog-Tree

They were seen as living in the Underworld and were generally described as god(s) of conflict, warfare, and are hence linked with dangerous transition times, social unrest, eclipses, and natural disasters like earthquakes.

It is said that at the end of a baktun, they would abandon their underworld realm and rise to the Earth’s surface, where they would do battle with the 13 deities of Heaven.

To further identify what the Nine Support Gods are supposed to be, we need to consult other sources, in this case, anthropological ones. Such evidence makes it clear that the Nine Gods appeared during ceremonies that were held at the end of each baktun, the last of which occurred in 1618 AD.

The ceremonial of the baktun is described in chapter 29 of the
The Book of Chilam Balam de Chumayel, a Mayan chronicle. It provides a detailed description of the ceremonies that were performed in Merida in 1618 AD, at the end of

In total, there are twenty acts, each representing one of the twenty katuns that make up a baktun-cycle.

  • After some initial preparations, in act 2, the bee god tied the masks of the 13 gods of Heaven to those people who were going to perform in the ceremonies.

  • The actual baktun cycle was ended in act 3, whereby the Nine Gods fought, conquered and sacrificed these 13 Gods. Night had conquered day.

  • The subsequent acts involved rituals to do with the election of the new officials for the new period, while in act 12, the Nine Gods sacrifice the Seven Pacers and count the mats, which is an initial line-up of the candidates for investiture for the coming era.

  • In act 13, the 4 year-bearers reappear, in the guise of the four death gods.

  • Most importantly, in act 15, the Nine Gods announce the fate of the new era. This fate was largely the will of the gods, which the community had to achieve during the new era.

In short, the baktun ceremony was therefore a series of rituals, focusing on the Nine Gods and their emanation and rulings. However, these extraordinary rituals have seldom been understood for what they are: part and parcel of the 2012 phenomenon.

The question nevertheless remains as to who these Nine Gods truly are.

Indeed, “Nine Gods” are not just an ingredient of the Mayan culture. There were also Nine Gods in the ancient Egyptian religion, as well as many others (e.g. India). To the Egyptians, they were also known as the Nine Principles and they were directly linked with their Creator Deity, Atum.

Control over these Nine Principles was deemed to be instrumental in the successful rule of a Pharaoh:

proper control over them meant that balance – linked with the deity Ma’at – was maintained and all was well with Egypt, the world and the universe.

We can therefore see that The Nine in an Egyptian or Mayan setting, were closely related; in both instances, they determined the ruling of an era, whereby their consultation was of extreme importance to the success of the nation.

So are we waiting for their return in 2012? If so, what are we meant to expect?

Interestingly, since the 1950s, decades before the 2012 phenomenon rose to prominence, there has been a select number of people that have been speaking about a “Return of the Nine”. For some, this is the return of nine extra-terrestrial beings, for others this is the return of the Egyptian Nine Gods.

Some even link The Nine with the nine founding members of the Knights Templar order – a concept that, alas, resulted in a series of mass suicides in France, Switzerland and Canada in the mid 1990s.

However, despite the mass interest in 2012, until now, no-one has drawn attention to the fact that for decades, people claimed to be contacting The Nine and the fact that Mayan inscriptions speak of a return of the Nine Gods in these “end times”!

So what are The Nine?

A group led by paranormal researcher Dr. Andrija Puharich that contacted “The Ninein the early 1950s. They believed they were an alien intelligence: not necessarily physical, but definitely not terrestrial in the most literal sense. The nine participants each challenged one entity, which communicated through them as a collective.

Puharich was quite clear that these entities had a connection with ancient Egypt. In the 1970s, he chanced upon a young Israeli psychic, Uri Geller. During the many scientific experiments Geller was put through as part as the CIA’s Remote Viewing experiments, Puharich realized that Geller could contact The Nine, and, specifically, that whereas in all previous attempts, he had required a panel of nine people to participate, Geller could channel all nine together.

As Geller’s fame rose, Puharich decided to write a biography of the exploits of this remarkable psychic.

In the book, Puharich mentioned the Nine, but for reasons that will forever remain obscure, he largely ridiculed The Nine, even though for several decades before – and after – he would remain obsessed with them. Equally, whereas previously he had spoken of them as an alien intelligence, in the book, they had become an extraterrestrial intelligence. There is a difference…

Geller has always remained silent on what transpired with the Nine, as he was unconscious throughout the channeling. When in contact with the Nine, they summoned him to UFO fly-pasts and more.

Puharich claimed he made tape recordings of these sessions, but none have ever been made public, so it truly is a case of Puharich against the world.

If true, then Puharich asked,

“Are you behind the UFO sightings that started in the United States when Kenneth Arnold saw nine flying saucers on June 24, 1947?” to which they answered yes.

Swiss psychologist Carl Jung made a detailed study of UFOs (Flying Saucers – A Modem Myth of Things Seen in the Sky – 1959) and was convinced that they were an alien – though not extra-terrestrial – intelligence that was here to help guide us into a new world, which he identified with the cosmic Age of Aquarius.

According to Puharich, The Nine stated they were from
a world called Hoova, though on occasion, they called themselves Rhombus 4D. They contacted Puharich and Geller as they had been chosen to prevent war, as well as steering the Earth’s fate into a specific direction, which the Nine argued was indeed to their own needs and benefits, though it was also for the benefit of Mankind.

Here, we therefore see clear parallels with the methodology the Nine employed with the Maya, namely their directing the fate of Mankind.

The Nine also claimed that they were responsible for Geller’s powers and that the way in which Mankind used Geller would determine whether The Nine’s “programme for Planet Earth” would continue, or not.

Others, like Phyllis Schlemmer, have also contacted “Tom”, who is a spokesperson for the Nine, with whom Puharich spoke too.

Her story made it into Stuart Holroyd’s “Briefing for The Landing on Planet Earth” and the later “The Only Planet of Choice”.

Other Nine contactees are Don Elkins and Carla Rueckert, who channeled “Ra”, a member of The Nine, who declared that it was he who had built the Great Pyramid. In sessions with Puharich, “Tom” said the Sphinx was built and named after him.

Tom adds:

“I am the beginning. I am the end.” – wording that could be lifted from the baktun-ending ceremonies.

I would personally not go as far as to argue that The Nine as per these channellings are who they claim to be.

I have done extensive research into them for more than a decade, and they are, quite simply, a complex issue that defies easy categorization. But what can be said about them, is this: it is clear that each culture, whether Mayan, Egyptian or 20th century Western society, was and is in contact with an alien intelligence, which each time, relates messages that are identical in context.

The number nine is prominent in another culture, which is believed to have had direct links with the Maya: the Hopi of Arizona.

They too believe we are approaching the end of an era, though their doctrine does not stipulate a precise date. Instead, they argue that for a New Era to be born, a series of nine prophecies need to be fulfilled.

Still, according to Twylah Nitsch, her grandfather Moses Shongo, the last of the traditional Seneca medicine men who died in ca. 1925, did predict that there would be a 25 year of purification that would end in ca. 2012.

Generally, the Hopi argue that it is due “soon”, as eight of the nine prophecies linked with it have been fulfilled. The first “sign” occurred as far back as the 16th century, and involved the arrival of the “white men with guns”. The eight, incidentally, were the Hippies!

The only prophecy remaining to be fulfilled, is that of the Blue Star Kachina, which is often interpreted as an alien, and sometimes extra-terrestrial presence that will manifest itself on Earth.

As early as 1948, the Hopi tried to speak at the United Nations General Assembly about their prophecies for our ending era. They feel that they are the caretakers for the American continent and felt they needed to share the message of the necessity for humans to be in balance with nature. Twice, the Hopi elders were turned away, but they eventually were allowed to speak in 1976 at a United Nations-sponsored conference in British Columbia.

Like the Maya, the Hopi adhere to a cyclical world view and believe that we are about to emerge from the Fourth into the Fifth World – out of a total of seven worlds.

Even though the Hopi do not specifically state Nine Gods will return, they do argue that one specific entity needs to return, which will be the final sign that the Fourth World has ended. Kachinas are “spirits”, which are visualized during the Hopi religious dances, very much on par with the masks the participants in the baktun ending ceremonies wore.

In 1914, a song was first sung at the Wuwuchim ceremony, which marks the start of the ceremonial calendar year in November.

The 1914 rendition of the song was the first mention of the imminent “Emergence into the Fifth World” and stated that this would occur when the Saquasohuh – the Blue Star Kachina – would dance in the plaza.

The Tortuguero Inscription,

mentioning the return of “The Nine”



According to the “Book of the Hopi”, by Frank Waters, Saquasohuh,

“represents a blue star, far off and invisible, which will make its appearance soon”.

Others have referenced it as,

“You will hear of a dwelling-place in the heavens, above the Earth, that shall fall with a great crash. It will appear as a blue star. Very soon after this, the ceremonies of my people will cease.”

In recent years, there has been intense speculation as to what the Blue Star could be.

Candidates included the appearance of Hale Bopp in 1997, or the supernova of SN1987A, which occurred on February 23, 1987. The latter was the brightest supernova observed for four centuries.

It seems, however, that the Hopi prophecy has been ill-understood.

Simply put, the prophecy clearly refers to a future tribal ceremony, at which point a kachina – a Hopi spirit – known as Blue Star will reveal himself. As such, Blue Star is nothing more or less than his name, and not necessarily linked to a stellar phenomenon. He is, however, by all accounts a deity – an alien intelligence that will return.

However, in recent years, the Hopi themselves have seriously clouded the debate over what is supposed to happen. Some Hopi argue that our current timeframe is known as the “
Great Day of Purification”.

Hopi elder Oh Shinnah Fastwolf states this period will be over by 2011 and that it will be at that moment that the blue star will appear in the sky.

Speaking Wind, the son of a Pueblo shaman from New Mexico, has said that the Fifth World will start in 2012. He however argues that the final cleansing of the Earth began in 1998, when in September, the five planets aligned.

He also saw a planetary alignment of nine bodies on May 5, 2000, as very important, as it was the begin date, until 2012, of how the earth would be purged.

“If mankind will not willingly let go of the illusion, and the lie, it will be stripped away.”

And so, despite details and fringe claims, whenever we turn to the core of a phenomenon and the core of the 2012 phenomenon, we are confronted with one key message, one that even archaeologists have uncovered as being at the root of the Mayan prophecy about 2012: it is about the return of the gods.

The Bolon Yokte Ku, who will signal in a new era.

The Time Returns!
