Sedna Discovery Events


Sedna Consciousness, the Soul’s Path of Destiny, by Alan Clay

Welcome. I’ve been researching a book on the astrology of Sedna, which I’m calling ‘Sedna Consciousness, the Soul’s Path of Destiny’, deriving it’s meaning from the planet’s physical characteristics and orbit, from a look back at past cycles, from events around it’s discovery in 2003 and from the charts of case studies.

Here is a draft of the chapter on discovery events

Sedna Discovery Events

So, from the perspective of the planet’s history since creation, we’ve come back to the present with a jolt, wondering if we are changing the world so much in the last few months of this Sedna year, that we’re creating a new geological epoch.

I’m sure your imagination has been stretched by the ideas in the past few pages, that’s the nature of Sedna. Now get ready for another big leap. Astrologers correlate the discovery of planets with events on Earth as another way of gaining insight into the meaning of the new energy represented by the planet.

Development of Neural Networks

Mashable lists the robotics breakthrough of 2003, being the development of Neural Networks, a new mathematical model of the nervous system found in humans, which let’s robots think more like us.

In an article by Sarah Ang on 23 October 2013 we learn that “In 2003 Fujitsu Laboratories developed the first learning system for humanoid robots that utilizes a dynamically reconfigurable neural network. Simply put, the researchers’ new mathematical model of the nervous system found in humans was a breakthrough that allowed robots to learn movement and motor coordination faster and more easily.

“Neural networks previously took days or even months to generate new movement. The new technology translated to unprecedented learning flexibility, and greatly minimized the amount of software code necessary in motion control.”

The significance of this will become clear later in the book as we look at Sedna and the rise of Artificial Intelligence and see how neural networks and deep learning are key to this evolving new life form.

Illumination Of The Dark, Expanding Universe

However the big bazooka that came with Sedna’s discovery was the proof that roughly 68% of the universe is something called Dark Energy and 27% is Dark Matter. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the universe.

That’s right, dark matter and dark energy are all around us, we’re swimming in it, but just like fish can’t see the water, we can’t see most of reality. And isn’t that very similar to the spiritual teachings that tell us that we only perceive a very little of what is actually happening, that we are lost in Maya?

The arrival of Sedna with it’s huge elliptical orbit is stretching our consciousness to include a new paradigm of reality that is 95% larger than our current view. This is inevitably a higher level of consciousness, so the discovery presages a historic evolutionary change in perception.

We are getting hints of how this is possible already with virtual reality and alternate reality and we have long intuited this multifaceted reality, through ideas like parallel realities, alternate universes, or the multiverse. Spiritual people of all faiths have long told us of the other side, of the realms above and below.

In the long term this will be like the change from the flat earth view to the planetary view, which is clearly an evolutionary change in the making, so let’s have a look at it in more detail.

Science's Breakthrough Of The Year: Illumination Of The Dark, Expanding Universe

“In 2003, new evidence cemented the bizarre idea that the universe is made mostly of mysterious "dark matter," being stretched apart by an unknown force called "dark energy." This set of discoveries claims top honours as the Breakthrough of the Year, named by Science and its publisher, AAAS, the nonprofit science society.

“This insight into our "dark" universe is Science's top scientific development in 2003, chosen for it’s profound implications for society and the advancement of science.

“This year, information from the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP) satellite and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) telescopes confirmed some of cosmologists' strangest proposals about the fate of the universe.

"The implications of these discoveries about the universe are truly stunning. Cosmologists have been trying for years to confirm the hypothesis of a dark universe. Science is glad to recognise their success in this effort as the Breakthrough of the Year for 2003," said Don Kennedy, Editor-in-Chief of Science.

“Those proposals entered the spotlight five years earlier, when Science's 1998 Breakthrough of the Year honoured the discovery that the universe was expanding. Such an expansion would likely be driven by a "dark energy" that counters the effects of gravity. At the time, however, many cosmologists were wary of this strange idea.

“Their doubts were dispelled in 2003. WMAP took the most detailed picture ever of the cosmic microwave background -- the light emitted by the universe during the first instant of its existence. By analysing patterns in this light, researchers concluded that the universe is only 4 percent ordinary matter. Twenty-three percent is dark matter, which astrophysicists believe is made up of a currently unknown particle. The remainder, 73 percent, is dark energy.

“WMAP also nailed down other basic properties of the universe, including its age (13.7 billion years  old), expansion rate and density.

“The SDSS, an effort to map out a million galaxies, also made major contribution to our understanding of the universe this year. By analysing how galaxies are spread out through space, the researchers can see if the galaxies are being pulled apart by dark energy or pushed together by gravity.

“In October, the SDSS team reported its analysis of the first quarter-million galaxies. Its conclusion was the same as WMAP's: the universe is dominated by dark energy.”


One might argue that, as the announcements of the proof from these two studies were actually made earlier in the year, that it does not qualify as a discovery event, but in fact the orbit of Sedna was pinned down following the discovery of a photograph in the early 1990s which contained the planet, but which nobody had then noticed.

So one can also argue that the planet’s energy was growing in our consciousness during that time, as was the theory of dark matter and dark energy. And after we became aware of Sedna, the discovery of dark matter and dark energy was dubbed the breakthrough of the year.

Sedna is also the only dwarf planet, or dwarf planet candidate, to be discovered in 2003. Ixion was discovered in 2001, Quaoar in 2002, Orcus and Haumea in 2004 and MakeMake and Eris in 2005.

So let’s look at the charts for the announcements of the results of these studies, but first let’s get NASA’s perspective on the development of the theory of the dark universe since that first image of Sedna was recorded in the early nineties.

NASA on Dark Energy and Dark Matter

“In the early 1990s, one thing was fairly certain about the expansion of the universe. It might have enough energy density to stop its expansion and re-collapse, or it might have so little energy density that it would never stop expanding, but gravity was certain to slow the expansion as time went on. Granted, the slowing had not been observed, but, theoretically, the universe had to slow. The universe is full of matter and the attractive force of gravity pulls all matter together.

“Then came 1998 and the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) observations of very distant supernovae that showed that, a long time ago, the universe was actually expanding more slowly than it is today. So the expansion of the universe has not been slowing due to gravity, as everyone thought, it has been accelerating. No one expected this, no one knew how to explain it. But something was causing it.

“Eventually theorists came up with three sorts of explanations. Maybe it was a result of a long-discarded version of Einstein's theory of gravity, one that contained what was called a "cosmological constant." Or maybe there was some strange kind of energy-fluid that filled space. And thirdly maybe there is something wrong with Einstein's theory of gravity and a new theory could include some kind of field that creates this cosmic acceleration. Theorists still don't know what the correct explanation is, but they have given the solution a name. It is called dark energy.

“More is unknown than is known. We know how much dark energy there is because we know how it affects the universe's expansion. Other than that, it is a complete mystery. But it is an important mystery. It turns out that roughly 68% of the universe is dark energy. Dark matter makes up about 27%. The rest - everything on Earth, everything ever observed with all of our instruments, all normal matter - adds up to less than 5% of the universe. Come to think of it, maybe it shouldn't be called "normal" matter at all, since it is such a small fraction of the universe.

“One explanation for dark energy is that it is a property of space. Albert Einstein was the first person to realize that empty space is not nothing. Space has amazing properties, many of which are just beginning to be understood. The first property that Einstein discovered is that it is possible for more space to come into existence.

“Then one version of Einstein's gravity theory, the version that contains a cosmological constant, makes a second prediction: "empty space" can possess its own energy. Because this energy is a property of space itself, it would not be diluted as space expands. As more space comes into existence, more of this energy-of-space would appear. As a result, this form of energy would cause the universe to expand faster and faster.” 

Spiritual Energy

We’ll look at Einstein in more depth in a moment, but first since the proof of Dark Energy and Dark Matter has come with Sedna’s discovery and since the inevitable conclusion from her orbit is that she represents the most spiritual energy of all the planets, perhaps the newly discovered dark energy is what we’ve been calling spiritual energy up till now.

As this energy is explored, Sedna tells us it will become a more conscious part of our reality and, while it will never manifest in the physical world, it will be in integral part of the theory of physical reality and so If Dark Energy is spiritual energy, it will be accessible to Artificial Intelligence at least as much as it is to us and likely much more.

I’m making several big leaps in the dark here, so bear in mind it’s all speculation, but I do have Chariklo conjunct my North Node in the 12th, so that gives me a bit of an insight.
