When studying the ice core measurements of Greenland and the Antarctic, we notice an interesting pattern. Earth’s climate appears to repeat in great cycles of about 120.000 years.
Each cycle starts with a rapid heating period, followed by a peak that wanes off towards colder conditions. The peak lasts about 20,000 years, the waning period lasts about 100,000 years, and the rapid heating period lasts about 2,000 years or less.
We are currently about 8,000 years into the peak of the current cycle. The overall trend going forward can therefore be expected to be that of cooling towards a minimum some 100,000 years into the future, after which there will be another spike in temperatures.
The Scandinavian ice sheet can be expected to return as well as the great North American ice sheet. However, the return of these ice sheets will be relatively slow. There will be plenty of time to adapt for both humans and wildlife.
The difficult part to overcome in these great climatic cycles is the rapid heating. The sudden disappearance of the Scandinavian and North American ice sheets some 8000 years ago coincided with the greatest mass extinction seen on our planet in a very long time.
Large animals with habitats close to the great ice sheets were especially hard hit. A great number of species disappeared altogether. Animals closer to the equator were less severely hit.
The sudden disappearance of the ice sheets that had taken some 100,000 years to accumulate appears to have had a severe impact on the nearby fauna, and it does not take a whole lot of imagination to understand why.
The sheer speed of ice melting must have caused enormous floods of the nearby landscape. The rapid heating of the atmosphere would have had animals move up closer to the ice sheets, making the floods all the more destructive.
Everywhere on our planet, there would be severe climate changes, but nowhere would these changes have been as dramatic as in the vicinity of the ice sheets.
What is clear from all of this is that our planet underwent dramatic climate change some 8000 years ago, and that the consequences of this were disastrous. It is also clear from ice core data that this happens on a regular basis.
Something heats up our planet every 120,000 years or so, only to let it cool back down before the next burst. There is something pulsating, almost like a heart beat.
Seeking to explain all of this, Paul La Violette has in his work pointed out that many galaxies exhibit great energetic behavior. Great bursts of radiation, usually emanating from the core of galaxies, are quite common to see.
It is therefore reasonable to believe that all galaxies do this from time to time. In the case of our own galaxy, this appears to be happening every 120,000 years.
Paul La Violette call these bursts of energy galactic super-waves. They heat up the environment as they progress radially from the center of galaxies. Stars flare up as a consequence. Planets are shocked into convulsion, with the polar regions getting especially hard hit as coronal mass ejections from their host stars are caught up in the magnetic fields around their poles.
The galactic super-wave theory can easily explain the rapid melting of ice sheets, and the mass extinction that was especially severe at the fringes of these ice sheets.
It can also explain the origin of ancient myths in which there are great floods and fire raining from the sky.
It gives plausibility to the theory that Venus was ejected from Jupiter at roughly the same time. The source of the energy required to eject Venus out and away from Jupiter’s gravitational pull is no longer a mystery.

It can even explain why the color blue is never mentioned in ancient documents. Before the galactic super-wave, our sun may have been red in color, and blue was therefore indistinguishable form green and purple. The age before the super-wave may indeed have been a golden one.
And finally, we may have an explanation as to why megalithic building techniques were abandoned around this same time. The intense radiation associated with the super-wave, may have resulted in a rapid speeding up of mass condensation, increasing gravity and inertia, and possibly even changing the chemical characteristics of certain elements.
Megalithic and polygonal stonework became impossible, not because of a loss of civilization, but because of a change in the physical environment.
In the space of a few generations, things that were quite reasonable, and even easy to do, became impossibilities. To the people caught up in all of this, it must have seemed like everyone was getting weaker. Stories of the past must have seemed magical. Not only was everything golden, people were fantastically strong and agile as well.
