A very good treatment of the "genre".
At the end of the article can be found a link to a paper on one significant, but not "micro-nova" in degree, solar eruption:
"Multiradionuclide evidence for an extreme solar proton event around 2,610 B.P. (~660 BC)"
"The Sun impacts the radionuclide production rate indirectly by modulating the galactic cosmic ray flux reaching the Earth’s atmosphere, most notably in the form of the 11-y solar cycle ( 37). The 2,610-y B.P. production increases in 14C, 10Be, and 36Cl described in this study cannot be explained by this modulation for several reasons."
"Solar Micro-Nova in 2046?
"New theory says the sun explodes every 12,000 years and causes havoc on Earth. Are we ready for the next round?

So, yeah, the core thesis is intriguing.

The sun is said to explode every 12,000 years, in not-quite-a-nova, but more-than-a-Coronal-Mass-Ejection, spewing out all kinds of energy/radiation, and other solid or quasi-solid ‘ejecta’. (AKA Solar fart / solar burp hypothesis?) Some of that stuff scorches our homeworld and pockmarks the surface, inducing all manner of chaos. BTW, the biggest Coronal Mass Ejection we know of was the “Carrington Event” in the late 19th century. It fried telegraph wires all over the world. Smaller ‘direct hit’ CMEs can take out satellites, induce overloads in the power grid, & affect electronics generally. Luckily most CMEs don’t happen to be in our direction.

The explosion coincides with both a solar and Terran magnetic pole-reversal, and/or change in rotation of the Earth, and/or a geological pole-shift, or some combination of all the above.

Right now, it’s a fact that the Sun is entering a”‘quiet” sunspot phase – another ‘Maunder Minimum’, possibly.

We also know that the Earth’s magnetic pole is dwindling in strength and moving faster and faster – preparing to shutdown and flip, as the geological record demonstrates.

Both facts give Vogt’s hypothesis a certain ‘resonance,’ at first glance. And Vogt suggests that the Earth’s magnetic field is ‘slaved’ to the Sun’s. I’m not sure mainstream planetary researchers would agree.

Look, cool / crazy catastrophist theories are a dime a dozen. Currently alternative archeology gurus Robert Schoch and Graham Hancock are enjoying a heated debate as to what destroyed ‘Atlantis’ – a rain of meteorites large and small – or a solar plasma outburst? Data exists supporting both sides. Just a few weeks ago, we saw the discovery of a huge impact crater under the Greenland ice, tentatively dated to around 10K BC. Which certainly seems to support Hancock’s “Impactor” scenario – but doesn’t necessarily rule out the solar burst favored by Schoch, either. Meanwhile, the Electric Universe/Plasma Cosmology crowd have done their best to reclaim Velikovsky from oblivion, and have gained a lot of ground showing the prevalence of high energy electromagnetic plasmas throughout the cosmos, at all scales. They’ve also proposed the sun is ‘fed’ by intergalactic plasma currents – which, presumably, have their own pulsings, which might support the idea of clock-like solar outbursts. Mainstream astronomy is beginning to admit that the planets may not always have held their current positions, and that plasma is indeed a powerful cosmological force. Two of Velikovsky’s key claims.

Obviously this dating points straight to the end of the last ice age, which is still unexplained, including the Younger Dryas hyper-fast warming and cooling event, rise of sea-levels by 300-400 feet, tsunamis of ice, mud and sludge rolling across the NorthWest, vast killing fields of animal life, flash-frozen mammoth herds, and other fun factoids familiar to fans of Randall Carlson / GeoCosmicRex and other catastrophist research.

[Scholarly footnote: Gurdjieff had a name for this sort of thing: “Transapalnian Perturbations,” Cf All and Everything.]

Seeing as we are about 12,000 years out from the last Ice Age, the question becomes, are due for another one of these bursts?

At first glance, it seems to weave together a lot of disparate, anomalous data-points, …as good theories do.

Wrapped in all kinds of speculations and esoteric tangents, the original treatment of the model in Doug Vogt’s “Diehold Foundation” video series will probably lose most viewers right away. Don’t expect “Solar Micro-Nova” debates to show up any time soon in the pages of Nature or Science.

And — you knew it — there’s a “Conspiracy” element to the story. Vogt claims DOD scientists figured this out the late 40s, then kept it quiet. He cites a book on Arctic aerial exploration, World in Peril (Siple & White, printed 1994, but first written around 48?), containing three “out-of-place” papers on geomagnetic reversals and earth cataclysms, sandwiched between more prosaic content.

6 geomagnetic reversals on a 12K year beat were identified and linked to crustal displacement cataclysms – a variant on Charles Hapgood’s theory proposed later in the 1950s. One of the papers opines that the implications are so extreme and disturbing that “it would not be in the interest of the public to release the data.” (In his video coverage, Ben Davidson / SuspiciousObservers highlights a few passages from these papers, but nobody has done us the favor of simply scanning the articles and posting PDFs, so we can see for ourselves.)

Vogt also cites another book recently de-classified by the CIA, The Adam and Eve Story by Chan Thomas, which allegedly contains a version of the same concept. (But reads like shit, FWIW.) The World in Peril book looks more intriguing. Amazon UK has one copy for 470 pounds. GoogleScholar doesn’t seem to have it either. (Was the book actually classified though, or did it simply show up in the recently released dump of declassified CIA docs — one could ask? Just because it was on some CIA analyst’s reading list doesn’t mean it was actually classified and suppressed.)

Also, the narrative vaguely resonates with an average duration of Inter-Glacials (warming phases) around 10-12K years. But the Ice Ages themselves have widely varying lengths – they are not interrupted every 12K years in some kind of metronome beat. Having followed climate debates, I haven’t seen such a 12,000 year cycle min Vostok & other Ice Cores.

All that is suggestive.

But — is this sweeping new meta-theory from Mr. Vogt disprovable, as the skeptical-sciencey crowd would say? Does it ascend to the level of a formal scientific hypothesis? Or is it just a morass of mushy woolly speculation?

What evidence would contradict it? If it makes specific predictions, it could be disproved.

Or, like many emanations of the fringe, maybe it’s more like a framework or narrative (or ‘convention’), one that could still drive some useful learnings. Akin to the Gaia Hypothesis, or the hypothesis of Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming.

Given a scenario in which the Sun periodically throws off all kinds of matter, gas & plasma is core to the model – where is all that material now in the solar system, from the last explosion? It should be easy to calculate 12k years x an estimated velocity of thrown off solar-stuffs. Would it be visible? Oort Cloud, Kuiper Belt?

Is this why the surface of Mars looks simply … shattered? A land of fractured pounded debris.

If true, it would also explain the extensive underground structures and tunnel systems found all the over the world – refuges from a surface catastrophe.

It might make sense out of the obsession of most ancient peoples with observing the sky.

Their fixation with building large astronomically-oriented structures out of massive stone blocks.

Is this where the missing $21 Trillion at the DOD has been going all this time? Is this what the #BreakawayCivilization is really up to? Is this why the Nazis were interested in the Antarctic? Wouldn’t the pole actually be the safest place to hideout from an event like this – as one commenter suggests in the YT video.

OK, drifting off into late-night hyper-speculation now…

This is probably a preliminary post, hopefully we’ll see some intelligent criticism from the Thunderbolts and alt.archaeo communities on this soon…"

The sun rises in a different place

If the axis of the earth's dynamo is shifting, reflected by a pole shift, then the crust will have to shift to
get back in sync with the dynamo. This probably happens over a long time with a series of small jerks shifts. It seems reasonable to expect there will be some large scale earth quakes that accompany such shifts.

I think that one needs some fact checking.
I'm pretty sure the Earth/Sun has done no such thing on any scale noticeable to people.
Inuit Elders advising NASA (who has LOTS of satellites zeroed in on the Sun's position relative to the ground on Earth).....ummmmm.

Kinda like "gems falling from the sky" over Kilauea.

It's always just the Inuit too. Nobody else, anywhere else.
I remember when it was first "news".
It reappears as "news" every year or so.
You found a June 2016 appearance.
Here's a mostly credible news aggregator....March 2015.

An example of black propaganda making it through the cracks.

I get that, but think that as english is their second language, what they are more likely referring to is their oral history about the sun rising in a different place long ago.

My one contention with Ben's theory on Galactic "Parker Sheet" creating periodic devastation on Earth (and Sun) lies in just how would mega-fauna have managed to survive uncounted instances over hundreds of millions of years, with a Galactic Parker sheet strike every 12,000 years?

I mean, we're talking the Dinosaurs etc, because this can't be just a new phenomena with Mammalian Mega-Fauna extinction events due to PS strikes.

One would also have to believe there was some kind of geologic evidence in the layers of sediment that these fossils are located in of these numerous strikes.

Parker sheet strikes would have to have existed from the very beginning of Sagittarius A's formation, spiraling out from the center, just as they do from our Sun.

But one other aspect of the theory/hypothesis is that we can probably discount the potential for habitable planets, or life, in Solar systems that lie closer to the Sun.. They would be hit by those Parker Sheets on a much more regular basis, with more frequent extinction events.

I've thought about the mega-fauna survivability issue.
I've also thought about periodicity possibilities in re the Parker Instability.

With a galaxy, we're talkin' Big.
A spiraling arm of electromagnetic instability may not swing around once every 12,800 yrs.
It may be l much, much longer time span.
But, WITHIN the arm, there could very plausibly be a series of "sheets" of polarity boundaries. Each separated by 12,000 yrs.
The paoleoclimatic record shows that this 12,800 yr periodicity is only relatively recent and has no explanation as to its onset or how long it may last. It was not happening during the time of the dinosaurs. Their demise was a different cosmic matter.

Mega-fauna - compared to the mammalian fossil record...after the number of 12,800 cycles seen so far, there's not many at all left.
