Whole Earth Forecaster
Frequently Asked Questions
What can BT forecast?
What isn't affected by the weather? Many things related to solar activity, weather and biology can be forecasted by The Berg Timer . . . precipitation, temperature, economics, the stock market, earthquakes, crime, illness, accidents, the safest times to fly, even the likelihood of war.
Why/how does BT work?
BT works because planetary positions affect solar activity and/or the solar wind, which in turn affects Earth's atmosphere, weather and biosphere. The theory that planetary positions affect solar activity is not a new one. It is centuries old. There is some good science being done on the subject. The Evidence
page provides more information if you're interested in the science behind the method.
As for how Earth's magnetic field affects humans, there is much evidence. Most importantly, recently, two separate studies have found microscopic chains of iron magnetite in the human body between the eyes, believed to function as specialized sensory organs, making us sensitive to changes in Earth's magnetic field on a subconscious level (see Here and Here). Pigeons have magnetite in their bodies and it is believed to be responsible for their ability to use the magnetic field to navigate.
We're in the beginning stages of much new science which will open our eyes to the fact that we're all part of a 'living' universe which interacts and changes with an infinite variety of interrelated natural cycles.
Can I calculate The Berg Timer myself?
Yes you can. The Berg Timer Method
section provides the complete procedure for calculating The Berg Timer using simple addition and subtraction. It takes about 2 days to finish one year of the indicator by hand. Or you can order The Berg Timer for any year from 1700 to 2300 by clicking Here
Any other general observations about BT?
The Berg Timer is something that you'll like to have handy. If you're observant you'll notice that things "happen" on and around what I like to call BT "signal dates" (when daily BT hits "7" or above). BT coincides with solar storms with a resulting increase in extreme weather and behavior.
It's been my own personal rule to my family to be extra-cautious on what we call "signal dates". Bizarre occurrences are the rule on and around signal dates, like hostage situations and riotous behavior in places which are vulnerable to such things. There are frequently bizarre shootings for no apparent reason on and around signal dates. Heart attacks are more frequent.
I didn't take my own advice in September of 1989 and got caught in Hurricane Hugo on a boat in the Caribbean. Luckily I got to shelter in time. Hugo generated to its full strength right after a Berg Timer "signal day".
