The subject of today’s discourse is, “The Poles Shift their Respective Positions.” Cardinal human principles are almost unchangeable. I say almost unchangeable because they always maintain a tactual relationship with the cosmological order and so the cardinal human principles or cardinal points of human existence do not undergo any change or physical metamorphosis. But this is not the case with the physical body. In the realm of physicality, in the arena of physical emanations, such a change may take place, and in the past took place several times in the history of this planet Earth, and also in the history of so many other planets, stars, satellites, nebula, etc. In the physical sphere change is the order of existence. In the psychic sphere, there is change in the collective structure, but because that change maintains a link with the cosmological order, with cosmic conation, it is not so prominent as that of the physical sphere.
Take the case of our poles: the poles may shift their positions. In the past, such a shifting took place several times – in the annals of this planet and also in the history of so many other planets. As a result of this shifting, as a result of this changing, the people say that satellites moved in and out of this earth when its outer crust, its litho spherical body, was not so solid as it is now. And some are of the opinion that as a result of this emergence of the Earth’s litho spherical body, the Pacific Ocean was created. According to old astronomy and also astrology, Mars also came out of this Earth, but it did not move around the Earth as its satellite. And that is why a name for Mars is Kuja: Shani raja Kuja mantrii (Saturn is the king, Mars is the minister). Ku means earth and Kuja means born out of ku. So in the physical sphere such a change took place in the past and will take place in the future.
The poles shift their positions. Now as a result of this shifting in the past, so many times, the time taken by the Earth in moving around itself varies, and also the time taken by the Earth in the moving around the sun – that is, its year – also changed. Day and night together were not of 24 hours, and the year was not of 365/366 days. So as a result of this change in polar positions, seasonal order also changed and its relationship with Mars varied so many times. And the order of our calendar, the system of our calendar had to be changed in the past. If the poles change their positions, the time taken by the Earth to move around itself will certainly be either lessened or increased. And similarly the time taken by the Earth in moving around the sun will either increase or decrease. That is why sometimes we see the seasonal orders are not maintaining proper adjustment with the months: this shows that the shifting is taking place fast. Now as result of this change, not only the adjustment between the months and the seasons will be lost, but the environmental order as well as the ecological order of the Earth will be disrupted. And as a result of this disruption, there must be physical and biological changes in the structures of all living bodies, all living creatures, including plants. The plants of Tertiary Age could not be found in the Cretaceous Age. The plants and animals of the Cretaceous Age could not be found in later ages, such as the Pliocene, Miocene, Oligocene, Mesozoic and Caenozoic Ages, because their existence, their births and deaths also depend on ecological balance. And as a result of the change in position of the poles, some people say that in the eastern hemisphere, the north pole is moving from north to south and in the western hemisphere, the south pole moves from south to north, and it cannot be assured that their relative distance will remain unchanged. So we should be prepared for the future; we should be prepared for the resultant of these changes in polar positions, in environmental order and also in ecological structure.
As a result of this change the magnetic structure of this Earth will change, as a result of which other planets and satellites of the solar system will also undergo certain remarkable metamorphosis. And if the magnetic order is disrupted, then certain remarkable changes, certain remarkable metamorphoses in the electromagnetic vibrations of this Earth and also of the entire solar system, will occur. As a result of this type of change in the electromagnetic vibrations, human thought waves will certainly be affected.
Our progress in the arena of science depends much on the progress of our knowledge in electromagnetic waves, electromagnetic emanations. So our progress in the fields of both humanities and science will suffer much, will be much assailed as the result of this change. We should be prepared for such change, and that change may take place in the very near future.
You know, human existence is not only an existence of physicality, an existence in physical structure, it is a [mesh] of vibrations of so many wavelengths. So if the physical waves change, if the climatic conditions undergo a certain gigantic metamorphosis, certainly the emanations and perceptions of nerve cells and nerve fibres will be changed, and disrupted. It may be for the good, it may be for the bad, but change is a must. In the case of such a change in the physical order and also in the physico-psychic order, the change is sure to take place in the realm of spirituality. We hope that the movement – that is, the movement of humanity, and of each and every living being – is from matter to consciousness, from extroversion to introversion. So the thought waves of human beings will be more of a spiritual nature than they are at present. That is, humanity in that developed condition will be more spiritual-minded than it is at present.
The Cosmic Entity, the Supreme Cognitive Faculty, never stops His emanations in the physical, metaphysical, supraphysical and spiritual strata. In the case of microcosm, if the change is neurological as a result of physical change, then certainly the cells and then nerve fibres will function some other way than at present. Then the thought waves of the Great, the thought waves of the Supreme Cognitive Faculty, are sure to undergo some transmutation when they pass through unit human structures. And it is expected that under such circumstances the progress of human beings in the realm of introversion will be more accelerated than it is at present. If the poles in a particular small planet, like the Earth, shift their respective positions, it may be beneficial to human beings or it may not be beneficial to human beings, but it is certain that the thought waves of the Supreme will do their own duty under the changed circumstances. Humanity will be more meditative and will accept Parama Puruśa, the Cosmic Cognitive Faculty, as its object of ideation in a better and more scientific way. One must not think that anything is fixed or stationary in this universe. Everybody moves – certainly the poles move – and they have already started their function of shifting their respective positions. And you see as a result of such a change, especially if the change takes place very fast, then another ice-age may occur here on this Earth. Between the pre-condition and post-condition of the ice-age there may be a long gap – that is, the pre-age and the post-age will have a long gap between them. But we have much expectation and hope from human intellect; and we hope, if a catastrophe comes, the human intellect will be able to overcome such a catastrophe and arrange for shifting the population to some other planet having suitable environmental conditions and a better ecological order. Let humanity rise, and let this development of humanity be more and more spiritually-oriented!

A Few Problems Solved Part 7
Could it happen?
There are several prophesies about Poles shift and Ice age.
Edgar Cayce expected pole shift to happen around 2000: "There will be upheavals in the Arctic and Antarctic that will cause the eruption of volcanoes in the torrid areas, and pole shift." I have seen some claims that there is volcano beneath causing melting of Antarctica. Cayce expected it to be disastrous for the parts of the planet and many human beings.
The eventual pole shift might take only few days. There would be tremendous winds blowing and buildings all over falling apart. It would raise waters or lower sea unequally, the mountains might be affected, there might be total darkness or constant light over days. The new North and South Pole would start forming and the previous ones melting.
Hopies expected that after loosing magnetism the pole shift will happen between 2007-2015. Magnetic fields are changing and diminishing since 1853.
Sarkar didn’t give any years, but stated that there were already signs as early as 1968, such as changing seasons and weather patterns. He spoke also about electro magnetic changes and tectonic plates affected. Sarkar explained that poles shift can happen for several reasons: due to huge nuclear explosion, or huge volcano eruption or external planet, meteor etc affecting earth’s atmosphere.
Scientists explain that earth is consisted of several layers. While magnetism is lessening, there is forming a liquid layer beneath, which can make it easier for the outer crust to slip over.
Directly below the Earth's crust is layer called asthenosphere, where the plates are touching each other. That layer creates mountains and can cause earthquakes and volcanic activity.
If the level of normal volcanic and earthquake activity is caused by plates shifting some centimetres a year, then what would happen if they shifted kilometres suddenly! Anyhow something is now happening in this layer while during recent years there have been growing amount of bigger earthquakes and now also volcanoes.
National Geographic News suggests that there's a region of rapidly changing magnetism on the core's surface, possibly being created by magnetism arising from deeper in the core. Magnetic poles shifts frequently. But it is expected also the physical poles too shift. Scientest mention also other possible reason for it; the radical displacement of the planet's axis of rotation (earth tipping over) due to imbalance or external object. Scientests are now more concerned about external object hitting earth as it has happened now also in other planets.
One explanation regarding electro-magnetics is, for example: if an external object with positive north comes too near our south pole, it would be attracted and cause the pole to shift slightly.
THE EARTH WOBBLES as it rotates on its axis. Earth changes researcher Michael Mandeville says Jan 2006, the wobbling has stopped.
Now also the North magnetic pole is moving towards Russia...at 40 miles (64 kilometers) a year due to magnetic changes in the planet's core.
According NASA since 1830 the earth magnetic field has been decreasing in strenght.
As the magnetic field reaches more close 'zero' there might be threatening changes. Dr. Valerie Hunt constructed a room in which the magnetic field intensity could be varied. "When the magnetism was decreased, gross in-coordination occurred. The entire neurological integrating mechanism was thrown off. Subjects could not balance their bodies; they had difficulty touching finger to nose. They lost kinesthetic awareness."With weaker magnetic field, high-energy particles - including gamma-, and X-rays - would penetrate more to earth. Electric power grids and TV and radio transmissions would become unreliable. Gamma rays can cause cell death, genetic mutations etc.
According some NASA scientist there is already now a huge hole in the magnetosphere of the earth, which is allowing radiation by time to time from the space to come through, this shows up burning of the skin rapidly etc.
Velikovski believed the pole shift would be caused by planetary interaction and being electromagnetic by nature. When planets come close, the earth would be pulled (and would tilt) by the magnetism of other planet.
Bhaktiviirya Towsay: Sarkar talks about electromagnetic vibrations, which will also affect human thought waves. Scientest don’t know much about interplanetary electromagnetism. Some planets has stronger magnetic fields than others but not enough to account for any interaction between them. Sarkar is obviously talking about some unknown phenomena and he implies later that our knowledge of planetary interactions suffers due to poor knowledge of electromagnetism.
Sarkar notes that as a result of pole shift day length, year length and seasonal order all will change. Now how these could change without intervention of an outside agency. For example the law of conservation of rotational momentum would require any change in the Earth’s rotation to be absorbed by some other rotation body. Similarly a change in year length can be accounted by only by a shifting of Earth’s orbit closer to or further from the sun (or what seems even more unlikely a change in the Gravitational Constant). If there were to be a sudden change in the Earth’s tilt or rotational momentum, this would place tremendous stresses on the underlying mantle and the tectonic plates; earthquakes and volcanic activity would cover the Earth in ash clouds and significantly lower its temperature. This brings us to the problem of ice ages.
