Part VI – Galactic Cosmic Rays Effect on Animal and Human Behavior

So what happens when Earth’s magnetic field weakens, an extended solar minimum occurs, and a profusion of cosmic rays rain down on our planet?

Several study’s have come out in the last few years providing new insights into what ensues to animals and humans by way of varying forms of magnetism and radiation. During times of a highly active solar maximum, an acceleration in certain forms of charged particles – such as solar flares, CMEs (coronal mass ejections), coronal holes, and filament can have a direct causal effect to Earth in many forms of extreme weather. This same scenario with these very same particles can have an effect on animals and humans. I will give specific examples of how in just a minute.

During times of low solar activity, and especially in the time of an extended solar minimum cycle of which we are currently experiencing, it is the far more hazardous form of charged particle known as galactic cosmic rays GCRs, which can cause the most damage to animals and humans. Large amounts of radiation from cosmic rays race near the speed of light hitting Earth’s magnetic field. Usually, the magnetic field deflects the vast majority of particles keeping the Earth and its inhabitants safe. But what happens when the magnetic field weakens?

Recent studies have confirmed the adverse effects of cosmic radiation exposure on humans central nervous system have been identified. Cognitive tasks used in the study corroborate past findings and identify significant longer-term deficits in episodic, spatial, recognition memory. Areas of the brain affected are the frontal and temporal lobes containing the hippocampus, medial prefrontal cortex, and perirhinal cortex.

The hippocampus is a small organ located within the brain’s medial temporal lobe forming an important part of the limbic system – the region that regulates emotions. It also enables our ability to maintain long and short-term memory, most significantly with long-term memory. This organ plays an important role in a person’s physical coordination, also elicits the feeling of being engaged, connected, or part-of. The medial prefrontal cortex region has been implicated in planning complex cognitive behavior, personality expression, decision making, and moderating social behavior. Perirhinal cortex is importantly involved in a number of different memory functions.

Now, going back to solar charged particles and geomagnetism; I found it quite interesting that both forms of charged particles…i.e. cosmic rays and solar rays have different but similar effects on humans. Dr. Kelly Posner, a psychiatrist at Columbia University says; “The most plausible explanation for the association between geomagnetic activity and depression and other mood disorders is that geomagnetic storms can desynchronize melatonin production and circadian rhythms.

In a related study from the Department of Neurobiology, University of Massachusetts Medical School suggests humans may be genetically pre-disposed to the influence of geomagnetic flux as it relates to the Earth’s magnetic field and charged particles. The study published in the scientific journal ‘Geophysical Research’, indicates a dormant gene is residing within all of us just ready to be tapped. It is known as ‘Cryptochromes’ (CRY). They are involved in the ‘circadian’ (24-hour cyclical rhythms) of daily life. Strong scientific evidence indicates geomagnetic fields have an influence on the light sensitivity of the human visual system.

Oleg Shumilov, of the Institute of North Industrial Ecology in Russia said: “Many animals can sense the Earth’s magnetic field, so why not people”. Shumilov looked at activity in the Earth’s geomagnetic field noting during periods of high solar storm activity, the geomagnetism peaks matched up with peaks in the number of mood disorders i.e. depression, anxiety, bi-polar and even suicides over the same period.

BREAKING NEWS: Cosmic Ray Flux, Geo-Political Unrest, Wars, and Earth Changing Events

What I am about to tell you will need to be categorized as pseudo-science and I take full responsibility for publishing this report and I must address this as theoretical conjecture (see summary). This area of my research has not been peer-reviewed, however, the content I am about to present is factual and does have historic repeatable concurrence. In other words, the results are not by accident, coincidence, or luck. What is still yet unknown is the exact when, how, where mechanics of cosmic rays flow effects human/animal emotions and behavior.

The following does not meet the disclaimer of “conjecture”; it is strongly peer-reviewed factual data.

The next two paragraphs address the connection between periods of charged particle fluctuation i.e. cosmic rays – and human behavior especially its effect on the brains “hippocampus”. The hippocampus is a small organ located within the brain’s medial temporal lobe forming an important part of the limbic system – the region that regulates emotions. It is also enables our ability to maintain long and short-term memory, most significantly with long-term memory. This organ plays an important role in a person’s physical coordination, also elicits the feeling of being contiguous, connected, or part-of.

The science community, such as NASA, as well as the medical community have been studying the effects of charged particles on human physical and emotional behavior since the 1970’s. Both disciplines are fully aware of what external magnetic stimulus can do in both advantageous and detrimental ways.

Note: Before I continue a quick mention to those who have supported my work. I now have been able to join three journals and hope to sign-up and attend a coming physics symposium in the near future. I hope to continue this journey and bring the latest research and discoveries directly to you. If you can help, see banners at bottom. Cheers, Mitch

I know one can get lost with too much information, therefore, I think it best to break this up into two or maybe three parts. Remember, this article is to address the connection between cosmic rays, earth changing events such as earthquakes, volcanoes, various extreme weather episodes – and now to include wars and societal discord.

Some of you may have noticed the following statement I made in my July 25th article: “I would suggest the current mode of global political dysfunction, may have some roots in history showing a pattern of “what happens below, reflects what happens above”. This suggest the turmoil which results from earth changing events appears to be in-sync with emotional geo-political unrest”.

– Watch North Korea and Eastern Europe –

Above I addressed the what and how cosmic rays can affect humans (and of course Earth itself), now to address the negative consequences of a continuing upsurge of cosmic ray inundation. As it relates to the space community, they already know the effects on astronauts who occupy the International Space Station, and now a heavy concentration of study on the long-term effects of a planned journey to Mars. Similarly regarding the medical community, well documented study’s demonstrate the imbalance of magnetic stimulus can cause an array of emotional symptoms such as depression, anxiety, disassociation, and hyper-sensitivity.

Time to wind this up and I will present a Part-II coming next.

The following will need to be considered as conjecture, although based on historical data:

To summarize, and I take this extremely seriously, I am going on record with an educated hunch (prediction) which I believe is only the second time I’ve done so over my 22 year history with Earth Changes TV, then Earth Changes Media, and now Science Of Cycles. In conjunction with my 28 day window as related to the Total Solar Eclipse occurring Aug. 21 2017 – which consist of 14 days prior to [eclipse] and 14 days after, will begin on this coming Monday (Aug. 7th) and ends on Monday Sept. 4th 2017, I believe the following will have an 80% + chance of occurring.

Thank you for your continued support.
