Connecting with Coincidence with Dr. Bernie Beitman, MD - EP 14? (13?) Guest: John Townley

I listened to a podcast today where Dr. Bernie Beitman interviewed John Townley, who is an astrologer and has a website called 'Astrococktail'.
It's still the 'Year of the Fire Rooster'
until February 15th, 2018
John also used to write a blog called 'Matrix Blog', which is still up but doesn't seem to have been added to since 2010.
I did like an old post on that blog titled -
Playing In Tune…
"By happenstance, most of my friends on Facebook happen to be musicians, not astrologers, but here’s something musical that connects.
First, rhythm and harmony.
Did you know that if you take two beats, like one at 60 beats-per-minute (bpm) and another at 80 bpm, basically a 3 against 4 syncopation, and double it (like you would octaves) until it rises into the tonal range, you get a perfect fifth?
Other common beat combinations create harmonies as well.
And if you raise the frequency/wavelength all the way up until the single octave of visible light, something similar happens.
Proportions that sound good lower down look good higher up.
If you do the opposite, and start halving frequencies to way down below bpm all the way to beats per day, month, or year, or century, you get the frequencies of the earth’s rotation and planetary revolutions, all of which tug on us en masse in exactly the same set of proportions.
It’s like the rhythm of the planets’ push and pull are the deep, bass and rhythm track of our entire existence, echoed in ever higher sets as we reach sound and finally light.
Although we seem to perceive and experience each set separately, they are all integrally part of the same stack, like nested matryoshka dolls."
"Synchronicity is the face of a deeper level of inter-connectivity" Tony Vigorito
"Further, in each separately-perceived set, we assign the same qualities to that particular spectrum.
Slow rhythms and deep tones feel more worrisome and ominous, fast and high seem more playful and less threatening.
The same goes for colors, with the lower-frequency red end more hostile and threatening, the higher blue and violet happier and lighter in tone.
And way down below, as any astrologer can tell you, it’s the slow, long-period outer planets that are the darker movers of difficulties (like Saturn on out), and the faster ones more positive, uplifting, and accessible (from Jupiter inward)."
What I liked about listening to this podcast was tomorrow is the Super Blue/Blood Moon eclipse, so I found it rather synchy that John had a book titled 'Lunar Returns' and I listened to this podcast just as the Super Moon was about to return in the same month.
A Birthday on the Super Blue/Blood Moon, a Halftime Show at the Superbowl and #TimesUp?
I like how John's book is priced at $23.99, because the 23rd of September (23/9) is my birthdate, but I won't be buying the book, because I'm not that much into astrology to be honest.
I thought that maybe Bernie was trying to pull a casino trick on You Tube by numbering what was the 13th episode on his podcast site number 14 on his You Tube site to avoid the unlucky connotations number 13 has with a lot of people (but not me).
Go the Sharkies!!!
The podcast with John though is less about astrology and more about strange things like this incidence described below in the You Tube description -
"According to John Townley: At 6 AM in New York City one morning in the 1960s, dreamt I was in my childhood bathroom (shared with my parents) in Coconut Grove, that I went to pee and peed blood, woke up quite upset.
Talked to my mom in the Grove (same house) that evening on the phone and she told me that at exactly 6AM that morning my dad woke up and peed blood, was alarmed, had to go to the doctor. There’s also an interesting dream in which he reappeared after death to tell me about what happened, which very much fit the Buddhist/Theosophical description of afterlife, with a couple of nice touches."
Well worth a listen, I think.
"John is also a well-known journalist, elected member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, historian, preservationist, performer, and record producer.
He can be regularly found, camera and microphone in hand, covering cultural and technology events ranging from the Consumer Electronics Show to the Toy Fair, from international music festivals to ocean sailing races.
When he's not behind the camera and microphone, he's in front of them, performing at maritime concerts in the U.S. and across Europe."
Maritime concerts?!;-)
"The world hums.
It shivers endlessly.
It's a low, ceaseless droning of unclear origin that rolls imperceptibly beneath our feet, impossible to hear with human ears.

A researcher once described it to HuffPost as the sound of static on an old TV, slowed down 10,000 times.
It's comforting to think of Earth as solid and immovable, but that's false.
The world is vibrating, stretching and compressing.
We're shaking right along with it.
“The earth is ringing like a
bell all the time,” said Spahr Webb, a seismologist at Columbia University.
The hum is everywhere.
Its ultralow frequencies have been recorded in Antarctica and Algeria, and — as announced this week by the American Geophysical Union — on the floor of the Indian Ocean.
We still don't know what causes it."
For Whom the Kristen Bell Tolls?
I don't really worry too much about the
"Big Bong Theory", but ... ;-)

UPDATE: 1st February, 2018

I clicked a link to John's 'What's Happening' section to his 'Astrococktails' website and saw the above page, and while I don't know too much about astrology my gut feeling is exactly summed up when he says - "February is another wild ride, with the roller-coaster feeling of Earth alone outside and far away from the bowl of the rest of the solar system."
I don't know whether I should buckle up, or put on my floaties for February.
At least there is only 28 days to make it through ... hopefully;-)
