The Earth glyph is a virtual template for areas of stress and tension in geological cycles of the earth. The planet is a dynamic life system in continual change with periods of novelty, syntrophy and entrophy. TimeStar's first forecast made April 3, 1996 predicted new islands would rise by 2008 and that Hawaii would be the focus of activity between July 16 and 29, 1996. On July 17, 1996 the Loihi Seamount collapsed with thousands of volcanic earthquakes. With this first uncanny synchrony for encouragement I followed the trail of events in time expressed with the 260-day human calendar (the Native American Tzolk'in) and spatial coordinates of the TimeStar's geometry with empirical observations. In 1998 I realized the central axis of the Earth glyph resembled the mid-Atlantic ridge and interpreted the glyph as a template for keys of stress and tension in the Earth. I predicted the axis of earth changes, e.g., earthquakes and volcanoes, was between Indonesia and the Atlantic Seaboard of the Americas based on the glyph. The deepest thrust faults in the world are in Indonesia and Borneo, and it looked like Indonesia had taken a beating and was reactive to stress. Indonesia’s islands rose from the waters between 20 and 36 million years at the time India drifted from the African coast to Eurasia and the Himalayas rose.
On December 26, 2004 a tectonic plate near Sumatra slipped with a 9.0 magnitude earthquake on Boxer Day and the devastating Asian tsunami followed. The earth rang like a bell for a week and shifted on its axis. As is often the case with very large quakes, this event has been followed by a sequence of very large quakes for at least a decade, or through 2014. Bear in mind that the Sumatra quake was caused by a tectonic plate slipping and was far more than an ordinary earthquake. It caused the earth to ring like a bell for a week. An 8.8 magnitude quake in Chile on February 27, 2010 again caused the earth to shift on its axis. A 9.0 magnitude quake at Honshu, Japan on March 11, 2011 resulted in the earth yet again shifting on its axis.
In 2007 new ocean floor formed in the East African Rift in the Red Sea. This is the same area where Arabia separated from Africa and migrated to Eurasia and islands rose in Indonesia and Africa migrated to Eurasia between 20 and 36 million years ago.
On June 12, 2011, after the Honshu, Japan megaquake, I predicted large earthquakes and volcanoes were probable in Africa after June 15, based on sequences from the Japanese megaquake. The Nabro volcano that had been extinct for at least 11,000 years erupted on June 15, 2011. A new island rose in the Red Sea close to the Nabro volcano in late 2011.
Eruption of long dormant or extinct volcanoes -- Chaiten in Chile in 2008 and Nabro in Africa in 2011 -- suggests the earth is cycling in a pattern associated with the beginning of the Holocene Age and end of the Paleocene Epoch. If this trend continues, identifying conditions of the earlier cycles and how they have developed as patterns will help to predict future events. Underwater volcanic eruptions invariably precede a new island's rising, and significant volcanoes point to areas where islands are likely to rise.
Rising Islands / Underwater Volcanoes
New island rises in the Red Sea: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/NaturalHazards/view.php?id=77277&src=nha
On December 19, 2011, satellites detected sulfur dioxide and a small volcanic plume in the area, and by December 23 a new island had formed in the Red Sea. The island continued to grow in early January, but stopped by January 15th.

What would the island be called? And who would own it? Spewing magma and growing in height, an underwater volcano off the Canary Island of El Hierro has captured the imagination of locals in recent weeks. It could eventually rise from the sea to create a new part of the archipelago.
MARIANA ISLANDS: Pilots and seamen in the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands are being warned to keep away from an underwater volcano which has erupted. The Governor Benigno Fitial declared a State of Emergency at the weekend following the eruption of the volcano south of Sarigan Island. Sarigan is uninhabited, but travellers are being cautioned to keep at least five nautical miles clear. Our correspondent in Saipan, Mark Rabago, says the Emergency Management Office is monitoring the impact but so far little is known. “Current evidence points to a source being the submarine sea mouth, south of Sarigan, that there was a cloud that contained either ash or water vapour that appeared north of Anatahan volcano and now coming towards the CNMI and Guam.” Mark Rabago says a team of scientists is expected to investigate the eruption.

Near Tonga: A new volcanic island has risen from the South Pacific near Tonga, according to reports from two vessels that passed the area… He said they could see the volcanic island clearly. "One mile in diameter and with four peaks and a central crater smoking with steam and once in a while an outburst high in the sky with lava and ashes. I think we're the first ones out here," he reported. (Published by CNN on November 9, 2006.)
Sumatra-Andaman earthquake : This quake caused the entire planet to ring like a bell and affected the North Pacific area of Alaska by way of the tsunami that followed on December 26, 2004. An event like this has repurcussion for at least a decade. The earthquake was unusually large in geographical extent. An estimated 1,200 km (750 mi) of faultline slipped about 15 m (50 ft) along the subduction zone where the India Plate dives under the Burma Plate . The slip did not happen instantaneously but took place in two phases over a period of several minutes.
Amchixtam Chaxsxii Volcano, Alaska : This is the only active underwater volcano in the Aleutians. Discovered in 2002, it will eventually be an island in the Aleutian chain. At the time of its discovery, long and extensive magma flows were present.
Kick'em Jenny is one of the most active volcanoes in the Caribbean and is currently only 190 meters below the surface. It last erupted in December 2001.
[Reuters] For the fourth time in the past 90 years, a small islet off the coast of Trinidad suddenly appeared from beneath the ocean several days ago [prior to May 21, 2001]. Residents of the coastal city of Chatham awoke to find the new territory once again in the Columbus Channel about 1.5 miles (2.5 km) offshore. In the few days since the nameless island has resurfaced, it has already become home to many birds. It has also generated extra income for local fishermen, who are providing boat rides for the curious to take a closer look at the capricious island. However, scientists Jan Lindsay and Kirstie Simpson said the fragile island had formed from a mud volcano and warned people to stay off of it as it could explode in eruptions of mud or emit toxic gasses that could spontaneously combust.
Kavachi, Solomon Island: An international science team has witnessed the dramatic birth of a new volcanic island in the Pacific. The rare event was witnessed by scientists during a research expedition to the Solomon Islands on the CSIRO research vessel Franklin. The Franklin is returning to Darwin after two successful cruises looking at volcanic activity and associated mineral formation in the Bismarck Sea and the Pacific. From the first leg of the expedition, scientists are bringing back a world record size "black smoker" chimney from the bottom of the Bismarck Sea. On the second leg of the cruise, scientists found the Kavachi seamount had entered a new phase of island-building eruptive activity after 9 years of apparent dormancy.
Loihi Seamount, Hawaii: The largest earthquakes swarm ever associated with a Hawaiian island started July 17, 1996 and resulted in the collapse of the Loihi Seamount. "We have never witnessed (directly or remotely) a Hawaiian submarine effusive eruption so it is possible that this could be one. The long duration of the swarm event and the moderate magnitude of the quakes are most compatible with either a pit crater collapse or an explosive eruption origin."
Metis Shoal, Tonga: This normally submerged volcano was reported to be in eruption on June 6, 1995. The New Zealand Hydrographic Office issued a warning for ships in the area to be careful. By June 21 continuing eruptions had built a small island 50-80m high and covering several acres. A 200-500m wide cinder cone is forming with ash and steam shooting hundreds of meters into the air.
