"How Can We Prepare for the Coming Food Shortages
and Climate Changes? Can We Create Buildings that Can Be Safe from Earth Quakes?
What Will Happen to the Atlanta Area?"
Source: Now it would be well for the many in this time to reverse themselves, or
begin anew to learn those arts of canning or preserving, in such manners as do not require
the freezing or power to maintain, you see. And there would be well that such foods might
be stored in large containers, below the ground, or buried in those places being safe, for
those times that come. And in considering that which would or should be grown in these
times, would be well that you use the land in such a way as deemed advisable for this
time, not considering those changes in climate, for these will come not slowly, but
abruptly, destroying all that is growing in that time. So that you would use the climate
as exists for the intervening period.
However that there might be the growing of the greatest value of food in the least
amount of space, those foods that provide most nourishment singly for the human body,
might be considered. Or that is, while you are growing those fruits, those vegetables that
seem advisable for the land, there could be taken as well such tubers as Jerusalem
artichokes, that known sweet potato and the Irish; for there is great value in that peel
and in the boiling thereof, particularly those small potatoes. And those peas, known here
as peanuts in this area, for are of such great value dried or that keep well and are well
protected from the elements in either state and provide great amounts of sustenance for
the body. For the canning and for the taking fresh, for the groups, for the family, in
that time, tomatoes contain the greatest concentration of vitamins that may be taken;
these only vine ripened, and maintain stability well when canned.
Now that crop that might be best taken between this time and then, for financial
resources, would be tomatoes, for we find these in great demand in the times to come. And
among those who seek to develop, there will be the greater and greater demand for the
Jerusalem artichoke, for its balance in providing much that the human system would need
and the ease with which these can be taken, for they can be chewed raw to provide a small
meal or small sustenance for those who would carry such things and be in the traveling or
the transience from one place to another. And as the people consider more the value to the
body in this time, there is greater and greater demand for such foods as come.
Consider these, then in preparing for those changes. And according to those questions
as are asked here concerning those changes, that shifting of the poles will come abruptly.
And this area will be found in those series of changes or some three slippages of the
crust of the earth. As there is the passing close of that red planet, so will the crust of
the earth be attracted toward it, as it would be approaching; so then that upper pole or
the North Pole will point in the direction of its advance.
Then as comes close or at its point nearest the earth, so then will the pole point
directly upward or in that portion, that direction that now exists or near, and in the
passing away of its presence from this planet, so then would the poles shift again a third
time toward the opposite direction. So that there will be three separate temperature
changes in this area, making near to impossible the survival of any animal species or
plant, either in this area or upon the most of the surface of this planet.
So there is little that can be done to prepare for survival, other than the using of
the smallest space or the concentration of the growing space, growing that which could be
grown in concentrated areas or in small gardens; providing each for himself, providing for
the greatest number of people in the smallest space.
Question: Will this area have buildings or houses destroyed by the quakes? Can we
design them to resist these forces and will this area end up under water? (Area in
question is Atlanta, Georgia.)
Source: Now much of this area will be below the sea, as there is the completion of
those times of the changes or the falling away. And much will be destroyed in those quakes
and particularly those waves; for that great wave, or that great rush of water will come,
even over this place where you now sit. A great wall of water that even could
not be described in words from here. Yet might be imagined that the land to the east of
this place will fall some several hundred feet. And that wall of water would come rushing
across with great force, destroying any and all things in the path. And there is no
structure possible that could withstand, save it be a well-constructed pyramid, many
hundreds of feet high and well constructed.
Yet for the protection, both within the earthquakes and the floods, on that western
portion or west of the city itself, could be prepared buildings on concave foundation or
saucer-like foundation, the building itself shaped much in that fanciful drawing that you
would see of flying saucers. So that with the slippage of the Earth's surface, so might
the building slip or remain intact; yet with no protrusions going from the surface to
hold. Or that which is now considered foundation would be absent, building resting on
concave surface, so would be as floating upon the surface; yet the concave at the deepest
part, going deep, that it may hold it within the earth.
Provisions then would be made for that incoming of power or energy sources, these
others that made necessary the tying of the building to the earth. Then that proposal is
that these would be freed from the earths surface; that which happens to the earth
would not affect the movement of the building or would be given the floating effect then
upon the surface.
Such may be designed in such a way with that concave surface so smooth and unconnected
or unattached, that would not be affected by the movement or the trembling, the shaking of
the earth. These would rely, of course, on balance, upon proper design, so that the upper
portion would resemble the lower portion, providing a balance of a system that would
resemble those systems used on great ships for maintaining the equilibrium or that of the
Now if such design were advanced at this time, or suggested, that one would be
ridiculed. Only in those times when such earthquakes would come, a great factor in
designing such a building, may a building stabilized by gyroscopic action be considered.
One built so saucer-like then, with stability provided by the movement of the gyroscope,
would withstand any sort of quake and could be made to float as well. Consider such
designs for that time will come when you would be known for advancing such.
Question: What might be the time element concerning these?
Source: Some twenty years would make these considered of great value, for there will be
sufficient damage in that time to cause those to consider these quakes as greater factor
in the construction of such.
