No really I stole it straight from my friend and spiritual leader Randy Bohlender. You can check out the origional post at http://randybohlender.wordpress.com/2009/01/09/there-comes-a-roar/
There Comes a Roar
I was jolted out of my half-sleep this morning over coffee and a bagel as I scanned the news. There, among the earthquake reports in California and the airing of varies celebrities’ escapades, a headline jumped out at me.
It seems that the 213th annual meeting of the American Astronomer’s Society is abuzz with the discovery of a very loud, unidentifiable, other-worldy sound.
In Astronomy, variations are often described in minute increments. One degree of difference spread over a light year makes a big difference. Measurements are very precise and meaningful…so when they describe this sound as six times brighter than all radio waves in the universe, they’re not speaking in hyperbole.
Scientists are not sure where it’s coming from. They’re not sure what it means. But they’re sure as heck not denying it. Something or someone just cranked the cosmic subwoofer to 11 and it is pounding loud and proud.
NASA Astronomer Alan Kogut says “Something new and interesting going on in the universe.”
Can we all just agree that Alan can be dubbed Captain Obvious? I showed that quote to my friend, Hal, who rolled his eyes and said “I could have told him that.”
They’re saying there aren’t enough stars in the universe to make a sound like this. Where ever it’s coming from, it’s beyond the stars in scope.
It transcends the universe as we know it, and it’s roaring to us.
There is a sound coming to this earth. It is a sound that has not been heard before. It’s been called the roar of many waters. A sound like a trumpet. It will resonate with that which resonates with it, and it will shatter that which does not.
People get ready. The experts tell us that something new and interesting is going on in the universe. And our spirit knew it all along.
