End of All Life - Ark to Mars? (Updated 8 Tevet 5770 - 12/24/09)
WHERE STATISTICS AND IMAGINATION MEET IN TORAH CODES
The ark on this matrix has nothing to do with the Ark of the Covenant, (the gold box that housed the 10 Commandments). The ark here is the usual word associated with Noah's Ark, a vessel. The Mayan calendar ends on December 21, 2012. In that year, in the Hebrew calendar, December 21 falls on the 8th of Tevet. In the matrix above (an expansion of the matrix at End of All Life), END ALL LIFE is found in a 198-letter matrix with 8 TEVET and ALL FLESH. The reference to ALL FLESH is from the story of Noah at Genesis 8:17. The skip (ELS) of the axis term, END ALL LIFE, is very large (-63,022), and is only the second lowest skip for the term.
The additional a-priori terms sought here were MARS and ARK. Why? Because if there is ever an upcoming event that would threaten life on Earth, and if there was enough time to do something about it, our governments would probably (secretly) try to construct an “Ark.” In the movie, 2012, the event foreseen was horrendous, but not so bad that arks in the form of seagoing vessels could not be built in an effort to salvage some remnant of humanity and animal life. But what if the event was expected to be so bad that not even our oceans would survive? In that case we might try to move some remnant of life to Mars. In conjunction with this action, we'd need to put enormous energy into terraforming the Red Planet. This means that we'd have to raise air pressure from the assumed average of 7.5 millibars to a level close to Earth's atmospheric pressure (about 1,013 millibars). This may be easier than generally believed - see my son's research on Mars.
There are some other odd explanations for the above matrix. Putting aside the issue of the 8th of Tevet (December 21 in 2012), it might refer to the End of All Life on Mars at some point in the distant past, an end that was accompanied by an ark or arks that brought life from Mars to Earth. If this is the right interpretation, then ruins at the Cydonia region on Mars may be referred to. To look at issues related to the possibility that at least some life on Earth came from Mars, see my page at Life on Mars.
It is important to note that there is no year shown on this matrix; however in a 104-letter matrix with the axis term (END ALL LIFE) we can place the year 5770 or 5776 at skip -1. But such a placement does not include 8 TEVET. To include also 8 TEVET requires 210 letters. The 8th of Tevet in 5770 is today as I write (that is, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, 2009). The 8th of Tevet in 5776 will be from the evening of December 19th to the evening of December 20th, 2015. I expect today to pass without the end of all life, and 2012 to do so too. As for 2015, well, Hollywood needs to keep a disastrous date before the public eyes in order to sell tickets. But please keep this in mind, the 8th of Tevet only gained notoriety because the Mayan calendar ends on that day in 2012 (not 2009 or 2015). I could have searched for a year’s worth of other dates to match with the two new years just cited, but I just don't think it's worth the effort.
As was discussed on my page about the smaller matrix at End of All Life, END ALL LIFE is the axis term, the first term sought. It is my protocol to never assign significance to the first term. It is either found, or not found. If not found, the search stops there. If found, only terms named before the next search (a priori terms) are used to calculate significance. Here a priori terms are 8 TEVET, MARS and ARK. The significance for 8 TEVET is reduced from the previous find because we now have 198 letters to find it rather than 135 letters that were in the smaller matrix. This reduced significance is then combined with odds of MARS and ARK being in the matrix, yielding a p value of about .000199 (one chance in 5,013). While this is significant, it by no means proves that the world here is doomed, an ark or arks will be built to go to Mars, or that life on Earth came from Mars. But it can fire up our curiosities and our imaginations.
