Just as bad, despite the author's dire prediction of a near total apocalypse, he goes on merrily to discuss ideal menus for the survivors. He's big into kiwi fruit, baked bannanas, orange juice, avocados and multiple other vegetarian delicacies. This is certainly confusing. If his scenario is even ten percent correct the rare survivors will be lucky to get the occasional moldy potato or skinny rat.
Also, it will be very important to properly train the young survivors in this Hell turned Utopia. It will be very important that they are taught not to make the same mistakes that led to the catastrophe that destroyed the earth [????]. This is truly confusing because earlier the author indicates that the 2012 world shattering catastrophe is entirely the product of irreversible natural phenomena.
Fortunately, we don't have long to wait to verify the author's calculations. I'm counting down and I'm overjoyed that I'm in South Africa where I can climb into the Drakensburg [ideal location] to wait out the destruction of the rest of the earth. Then again, the author alternatively suggested that an indestructible yacht might be an even better idea. Maybe I can suggest a third choice: Build an indestructible yacht loaded with kiwi fruit and bannanas, and moor it high in the Drakensburg. Perfect.
"I clearly explained that life after a polar reversal is nothing but horror, pure unimaginable horror. All securities you presently have at hand such as food transportation and medicine will disappear in one big blow, as will our entire civilization, dissolved into nothingness. It cannot be more horrifying than this; worse than the worst nightmare. More destructive than a nuclear war in which the entire global arsenal of nuclear weapons has been deployed. Are you grasping the facts?
The earth will be subject to total destruction. It will be many times worse than my description. You will know terrible hunger, cold, and pain without the hope of a quick recovery; all knowledge and resources will have been completely destroyed. This will be the reality of your daily life after the forthcoming polar reversal. This is the scenario you will have to fight your way through in order to survive."
The author of this book states that a pole reversal/slip occurs every 11,500-12,000 years, caused by our sun's solar cycles that occur in this period of time. Geryl goes on to state that if you want to survive you need at least 12-18 thousand dollars minimum to purchase necessary items to survive and you need to pick the right location in the world which does not include North and South America. I gave this book 5 stars because I agree with almost everything Patrick Geryl says in this book except the following points.Read more ›
The first part of the book discusses his voluminous research from several different disciplines including mathematics, ancient texts, archaeology, geology, cartography, mythology, astronomy, and physics that led him to conclude that a pole reversal will happen in 2012. Such a shift of the earth's crust would result in the destruction of civilization and the deaths of most of the world's population. The author can get quite graphic in his description of what would happen during and following a pole reversal. However, I find that there is a wisdom and compassion in his style of writing. It is to prepare the mind like an inoculation so that when actual conditions present themselves, one can act.
Patrick's writer's voice is clear, logical, enthusiastic, and strident. He believes that the devastation of 2012 is going to happen. It has happened thousands of times in the history of the earth, he contends, in clock-like fashion. The compelling aspect about Patrick to me is that he presents himself as a sincere person, a diligent, self-made scholar who has put together the pieces of the puzzle into a huge mosaic until the picture becomes clear and the arrows point to one central message.Read more ›
