Return of the Phoenix Book Two: The Great Break-Up
The Purpose Of The Trilogy
~ Open the Mouth of the Dead ~
Edgar Cayce, who became world famous because of his remarkable psychic ability to find cures for disease and foresee the future, made 45 predictions during the height of his prophetic career about events which will surround a devastating shift in the poles of the Earth in the years 2000/2001. These prophecies are gravely troublesome, giving the impression of far-reaching, cataclysmic changes which will propel humanity into a completely unsuspected, unimaginable future.
Is there any reason to suppose that Cayces disturbing prophecies could actually happen? The Return of the Phoenix presents in three volumes the story of the Quest which was undertaken to answer this question and the findings and discoveries which were made on the journey, including:
The Phoenix Quest began with two paramount issues: what is the "pole shift" proposition and what is its credibility? The effort to answer these two questions resulted in an anthology which is presented in these three volumes. It is the most comprehensive anthology and scientific analysis of the validity of Cayces work which has ever been compiled outside of his health prognostications. Based on five years of research, the Quest assigned an overall score of 92% for Cayces accuracy with long term predictions. With this objective score, the first which has ever been established for Cayce, the Trilogy provides a major historical milestone for Cayces legacy as well as for the scientific study of psychic/spiritual phenomenon.
Book One, "The Veil", explores the credibility of the man, Edgar Cayce, by looking at his life and his documentation. His professional career is summarized and analyzed, and the general content of his readings is reviewed, including the metaphysical and religious context which provides the backdrop of his predictions.
Books Two and Three provide the first comprehensive overview of Cayces prophetic scope. The books evaluate 253 world-class objective predictions given by Cayce and tie them together into a complete story of the past, present, and future. The setting and story behind the predictions, including their connection to the flow of Cayces life, are provided within an outline of the history of the 20th century, or within the history of the Earth and ancient times. The story line leaves little doubt why 191 of these predictions were objectively fulfilled, why 17 failed, and why 45 "destiny" prophecies are still pending for the millennial period of 1998-2001.
Book Two, "The Great Break-Up", establishes the validity of Cayces predictions about human history and presents Cayces sweeping vision of the 20th century and beyond in a "Future History". Book Two summarizes the methods for verifying Cayces statements and provides a scoreboard for Cayces accuracy with various types of statements.
Book Three, "The Prophecies", establishes the scientific validity of Cayces statements about the ancient past and his predictions about all types of Earth events. Book Three concludes the Quest with an integration of all of Cayces outstanding predictions about the millennial era into a complete vision which describes why, when, and how the poles of the Earth will shift to a new location and how humanity can cope with the aftermath.
The Phoenix Trilogy is a major scientific milestone for the study of spiritual/psychic phenomenon. The Quest used a scientific approach for deriving a "hard", empirically-based score for the credibility of objective psychic precognition and clairvoyant observations. The approach subjected Cayces psychic "data" to rigorous empirical critical analysis to substantiate Cayces credibility and areas of strength. With these scores, the Trilogy proves the existence of psychic or clairvoyant faculties and the ability of humans to consistently and reliably "tune into" both the future and the past. This approach squarely bridges the gap between science and the spiritual/psychic realm and it should be used for the study of any psychic.
The Quest unfolds as the authors personal story of his long journey through the work of Edgar Cayce, ancient Egypt and other cultures, human history, and a large assortment of legends, myths, archeological findings, and scientific concepts about the Earth. The Quest begins with the authors encounter with the Cayce phenomenon and the 100,000 plus pages of Cayce transcripts, reports, and correspondence which reside on the Cayce/Davis CD. The Quest goes on to demonstrate the workings of the scientific approach which was used in the process of verifying Cayces personal credibility and the accuracy of this predictions. This first person approach provides guidance in how to study Cayces readings on the CD and is intended to demonstrate and convey serious science and philosophy in a manner which is understandable, continually useful, and interesting for large numbers of people.
The Quest continues through the Trilogy to present and demonstrate how key ideas from Cayces readings merge to form an integrated vision which guides and leads to further discoveries. One such "find", another scientific milestone on the pages of the Trilogy, is the discovery of the mechanism which drives the motion of the plates in the Earths crust. From the attempt to correlate Cayces Earth change predictions with real phenomenon, certain correlations emerged which demonstrate exactly how and why plate tectonics works.
Since this mechanism goes to the core of all of Cayces predictions and comments about the rapidly approaching pole shift, Book Three explains the mechanism in great detail with extensive proof. The crust of the Earth is formed and shaped by cyclical fluctuations in the wobbling motion of the pole (Chandlers wobble). These fluctuations in the wobbles of the pole are directly driven by the Sun and the Moon. All motion in the plates and blocks of the Earths crust are directly created by the combined tug of the Sun and Moon and these fluctuations in the wobble of the pole. This motion of the crust is experienced as Earthquake and volcanic activity and all of Earths major tectonic features (mountains, volcanoes, and continents) are directly created by these fundamental motions. The history of the Earths crust is essentially the history of the continuous motion of the pole through the cycles of its wobbles and the occasional sudden jerking relocation of the pole to a new point of equilibrium. Ironically, the mechanism behind plate tectonics is nothing but this shifting pole.
The Trilogy concludes by weaving together many of Cayces key stories and ideas about Atlantis, ancient Egypt, and the millenium into the story of the "World Epic". For the first time, Cayces "whole proposition" is laid out in a comprehensive anthology of Cayces key ideas. The World Epic portrays the elements of a grand paradigm about the nature of the Earth, the history of humanity, and God. If Cayces propositions are true, many mysteries about the human situation. religion, spirituality, and many areas of speculative archeology about the ancient past can be resolved into clear and certain knowledge. Since Cayce is often misunderstood and is frequently quoted incorrectly and out of context, this mosaic of the World Epic will change the way even devoted fans currently understand and regard Cayce's work.
The Purpose of Book Two The Great Break-Up
The Quest continues in Book Two with a rigorous examination of Cayces predictions about his own times and the future of the twentieth century. Cayce made hundreds of specific business, political, and economic predictions for the years 19242000. For the first time, these objective historical predictions are carefully examined within their historical context. The Quest then systematically tabulates Cayces successes and failures to determine an accuracy of 92% for Cayces long-term predictions and clairvoyant statements.
Cayce made many types of objective predictions for businessmen, groups, housewives, students, and friends about war, peace, recovery from the great depression, the beginning and end of World War II, future technology, the destinies of the nations, growth industries, the stock market, stock picks, earthquakes, major storms, droughts, searching for treasure, interest rates, the future of gold, the ways in which the prediction of weather and earthquakes could be made scientific, and many others. He even predicted that the study of spiritual/psychic phenomenon could and would eventually become fully scientific and measurable.
Cayces accuracy for these predictions varied quite widely, depending upon how short-range the event was and the extent to which free will could influence the outcome. Book Two analyzes each major type of prediction and establishes a score for each. Several findings are posted into a "scoreboard" which will prove to be of interested to scientists and philosophers as well as the general reader. With this scoreboard, the Quest has an objective estimate for how seriously Cayces millennial predictions should be taken.
The summary scoreboard clearly shows that a number of factors determine the accuracy of a precognitive or clairvoyant prediction, including the "room" for the play of free will in the event, the theatre of the action, the number of actors involved in the theatre, and the time frame of the event. Most surprisingly, the Quest discovers that the present and the near future is the least determined, and the long future is the most determined. Cayces accuracy was the highest with long term impersonal events and was the least accurate in human affairs involving the choices of a relatively small number of people in the time frame of less than 30 days.
To document and convey the solid substance of Cayces score, over 300 of Cayces predictions are quoted verbatim, many for the first time, and set within an accurate historical context along with an analysis of each statement. Within each topical chapter, the predictions are usually presented in the sequence in which they were given. This provides an historical mosaic against which the application of each prediction can be objectively seen. From this a determination can be made for whether the prediction was fulfilled or whether an individual prediction had failed or is still pending. Many seemingly obscure statements suddenly can be seen to be right on the pulse of the times. And some statements can be seen to have been badly abused by various writers and quoters, misinterpreted by quoters who "lost" the context in which the predictions were given.
The result is a vivid retrospective of the central dynamics of the 20th century, a "Future History" which demonstrates Cayces prophetic scope and accuracy. The Future History articulates, as a series of prophetic warnings, the way history would unfold and why during the 20th century and the early part of the 21st century. Within the retrospective, the extraordinary vision behind the prophecies becomes clearly obvious, the central dynamics and outcomes of the 20th century were all thoroughly grasped and outlined in the most basic terms by Cayce, even though not every prediction involving the various players on the historical stage came true.
It is impossible to seriously view this retrospective of the 20th century without having ones personal paradigms profoundly influenced. The retrospective serves like a personal scryers mirror in which images of both the past and the present form up to reveal the dynamics, trends, and tendencies which have molded and impelled us all over the planet.
Images of the future may also form up in the mirror to reveal what will confront us yet again, all over the planet. By the year 2001 conditions in the world may parallel the conditions of 1932. Many physical and organizational modes of operation may cease to function, nothing may work as it has. The economies of the world may collapse as a consequence of the destructions wraught by a pole shift and huge masses may find it difficult to cope with even the most basic issues of survival. Under such circumstances, the political solutions people will seek will parallel all those divergent factions and conflicts which embroiled the world in constant struggle from 1930 through to 1945 during the Great Break-Up of the dynastic age. By looking backwards on the Great Break-Up, one may see a vision of the future, hopefully to learn from that vision how to overcome the least desirable aspects of the brutal past.
