As I conclude this analysis of what’s about to happen in the next year, I expect that the comments and negations are flying everywhere. Everybody with a vested interest in their own perspectives, and their own financial ties to certain industries and media will be hammering away with their own viewpoints.

Look for counter arguments where they cite their own predictions of the future, not just attacks on what I see as possible, and probable.

IV. Economically problems will continue worldwide. The U.S. and the EU have pumped so much new currency into their economies that inflation is inevitable. Producer…


It doesn’t matter if the Russia takes action in Eastern Europe or not. The Chinese are staged and ready to step forward and act in the Western Pacific, and their neighbors are fully aware even if the U.S. political leadership and populace are clueless.

Worse yet — the entire U.S. military and political hierarchy are fully compromised and ready and willing to allow China to act without any major repurcussions.

III. Vietnam and Japan just signed a defense agreement to share technology essential to counter Chinese threats to each other. The partnership is a direct reflection on the recognition that…


As this examination of what is about to happen around the world continues, the opportunities for Russia to force major changes in Eastern Europe has suddenly jumped to the forefront in the news. Yet, nobody is connecting the dots to see what is about to happen. It seems that the issues with BREXIT talks and trade, U.S. pullback from traditional foci, and the recent recall of France’s ambassadors to the U.S. and Australia are just being glossed over in all the media as public uprisings over mask and vaccine passport mandates take center stage.

What better timing has existed for…


Predicting the Future

By James Phelps, Ph.D.

People regularly predict the future. Economists tell us what policies will result in which changes over the next several years. Politicians tell us how they will bring prosperity to their constituents if they only had another 2/4/6 years in office. The weather person predicts tomorrow, with a 50% probability of accuracy being the best we can hope to get.

It is an everyday process for all of us. Even you predict the future if you invest in stocks/bonds/cryptocurrency/forex. You are betting on a better return than inflation will wipe out.

Let's see.... Hmmmmm...... Sounds like a very interesting perspective to me. Yet using the very data you present, let's just stick with the Forbes article for now, there should be 5.4 alien civilizations in our galaxy that are in our range of the electromatic spectrum if 85% of matter is in the Dark Matter spectrum.

That just gave me a great idea. We should coin a new phrase, call it the DM Spectrum. Apply it to all the invisible stuff that dark matter could represent.

So.... back to the original focus of my comment - where are the other 5.4 civilizations that should be emitting signals in our EM Spectrum? Not caught up to us yet?


I was thinking the other day and that is a dangerous experience.

Reading the articles on Medium that are of interest to me both excite and depress, depending on the quality of the writing and the writer’s ability to write. Too many writers are exposing their ignorance and their biases. Only a few actually know and understand the topics about which they write. Many write too long, while others write too short — leaving out too much.

Thinking is often the same as writing. I’ve been accused of being too smart, too well read, too intelligent by students steeped in…


In the summer of 2019 I had the fortune to hear a Neil deGrasse Tyson podcast that was discussing Great Filter Theory in light of the Fermi Paradox.

The Fermi Paradox is the postulation by the physicist and father of the first nuclear reactor and the Hydrogen Bomb, Enrico Fermi, that came up during a lunchtime discussion with colleagues. Essentially, any civilization with a modest amount of rocket technology and an amount of imperial (or survival) incentive could rapidly colonize the entire Milky Way galaxy within ten million years. Since the Milky Way galaxy is roughly ten thousand million years…
