ZetaTalk: Level of Preparation
Note: written on Aug 15, 2000.
As the pole shift approaches and the earth changes heralding the shift can no longer be ignored, the peoples of the world will find themselves at varying levels of
preparation for the coming horror. In most cases, the populace will find themselves barely able to get past a stunned awareness that life as they have known it will
not continue before the shift is upon them. Their level of preparation will be based on where they live, their state of health, and whatever goods they can lay their
hands upon in the last days.
- Those who live in coastal cities or near volcanoes will instinctively understand that they are not safe, as warnings about tidal waves and volcanic eruptions
have been regularly issued during their stay in the area. They will try to bolt, to safety, only effecting real change in their circumstances in rare cases. Those
who are ill, or infirm, or used to an indolent life, will find they can scarcely do more than succumb to stress diseases as panic begins to overtake them. To the
degree that doors are left open and goods unguarded, looting will occur, but looters are as likely to find themselves facing a panicd shopkeeper or
homeowner, so looting will in and of itself will be a dangerous activity during this time. Those who live in safe areas will mill about, uncertain and endlessly
discussing the situation and their alternatives with neighbors equally confused and worried.
- Where there has been early warning or awareness of the coming changes, preparation may have been started, but in most cases will have been deferred until
the last minute. To prepare, or take the warnings seriously, is to give them life and credence, so ignoring the warnings and refusing to take action is a type of
denial. Those who have been warned, but refused to take action, will suddenly leap into a frenzy of activity, grabbing any survival gear or food stores they
can lay their hands upon and attempting a mad dash to a safe place, if not already there. Wild eyed and determined, they will run over anything in their path,
as though trying to escape from a burning building. This type of preparation suffers doubly, in that it was inadequate due to delays, and will call attention to
itself due to noisy activity at the end, so is likely to be more self defeating than successful.
Where an individual has taken the warnings seriously, or listened to their own counsel during the months and weeks leading up to the shift, their will be a grim
enactment of a plan.
- Those who have determined they will likely die, or who are choosing this option, will say their good-byes, much like someone on a deathbed or on a sinking
ship. If those around them are refusing to acknowledge the pole shift precursors, these individuals will be treated as though insane, so may be driven to find
each other for company and understanding, a type of suicide club.
- If an escape plan has been put into place, and well rehearsed at least mentally, this will in all likelihood succeed. Travel is possible, weeks before the shift,
especially where alternative routes have been identified and researched. Traveling light, so as not to attract attention, likewise makes for fast travel which can
be disguised under many excuses. Perhaps the family is going to visit relatives, going on vacation, has experienced a death in the family and must attend a
funeral, or is simply considering a job or location change and doing some checkout.
- Where already in residence near a survival site, an almost staged and artificial dance will ensue. Leaving too early for a shelter which will provide safety
during earthquakes and wind and possible fire storms would alert neighbors or undesirables, so a casual indifference is enacted. This in and of itself can be a
giveaway, but in most cases, and unless the acting is so poorly done as to be a red flag, the neighbors will not notice clues that an act is in process because
of their own level of panic.
Stable communities in a safe place, in essence a survival community in and of itself, will be guarded against a flood of desperate and poorly prepared additions to
their headcount. There may be perimeter guards in place, to discourage or re-direct a throng of newcomers. Outside of obvious routes, as in heading for the hills or
out into the countryside from a city, such throngs are unlikely to occur. Those who have not prepared ahead of time will be in a state of panic, running in all
directions, so that those trying to exit a city will find a press trying to move into the city in their path, and those trying to leave a coastline will find a crowd trying to
reach the coast. Any change, in the minds of those in the grip of panic, is better than no change, so action is taken regardless of logic.
