    Question

    This one completely scrambled me yesterday ...
    Today should be interesting ...




    X-CLASS SOLAR FLARE: An unusually-magnetized sunspot exploded on May 10th, producing an intense X1.5-class solar flare. Shortwave radio signals were blacked out around the Atlantic Ocean for as much as an hour, and now there's a chance a CME is heading our way. Updates

    Those tend to affect me too, but I'm not always sure how. I might more tired, dizzy or agitated. The increased energy from such strong solar flares agitate all nervous systems and of course Earth too. Some tend to be just more easily affected by such events.

    It takes approximately three days for solar winds to reach Earth. With a solar flare, those winds are more intense and change the Earth’s geomagnetic field. Since the Earth’s geomagnetic field passes through us all the time, it should not be surprising that we can sense these changes.

    When those winds hit the planet, our bodies show alterations in our cardiovascular and nervous systems, and psychological, physiological, and cultural responses. Studies have shown increased acute heart events during and just after solar flares. Physiologically, our heart rate decreases its variability meaning that our heart rates stay high rather than change based on our activity level. Our blood thickens and actually slows down which requires our blood pressure to increase.

    Solar flares also affect the firing of our nervous system speeding our responses and triggering psychological changes like agitation and anxiety and physiological changes like altered waking times and head pressure.

    Together these two systems account for many of the increased admission to hospitals just before and five days after solar events.

    Essentially, solar flares put our bodies into fight or flight state. This shows up culturally and socially. Car accidents increase during solar flares. Social unrest has been correlated with times of increased solar activity.

    Those are the downsides of solar flares. Studies have shown that these effects are more significant for those experiencing illness or distress. However, for those healthy enough to bear these changes, solar flares can be a time of insight, creativity, and increased awareness. After all, the geomagnetic field is Energy. Depending on how strong your cells are, you could use it as Good Energy In.

    STRONGEST FLARE OF THE CURRENT SOLAR CYCLE: Sunspot 3514 erupted on Dec. 14th (1702 UT), producing a strong X2.8-class solar flare. This is the strongest flare of Solar Cycle 25 (so far) and the most powerful eruption the sun has produced since the great storms of Sept. 2017. NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory recorded the extreme ultraviolet flash: #solarflare #X-flare #spaceweather

    Well, I noticed people were driving even more stupid than normal...ultra-conservative...I like the music, pan flute isn't it. I had some really excellent stuff that I bought at a street concert once. Peruvian folks I believe, I don't know what happened to it though. Electronics were a little weird too, of course.

    Our Sun has been heavily flaring this past week. Solar max peak possibly coming in summer 2025.

    This has been the fifth and strongest X solar flare within the past two weeks. Excess energy flowing in.

    Yesterday was another day when people on the freeways were driving like they had nowhere to go...it was weird. I spent a couple of hours weaving through traffic. I hate crosstown traffic...I hate it to the point of tears.
