Bugarach

Bugarach | Bugarach | Scoop.it

One of the hot topics with respect to the so-called End of the World happening, which is foreseen for December 21, 2012 is the mountain that I have chosen for today’s blog.

The famous Mount Bugarach, close to the medieval village with the same name. This village and mountain are featuring in all kinds of documentaries and films and can be found on the internet on a lot of pages and sites.

Personally I am not going to add anything to that which is already described umpty times.

My aim is to show you that you can, with some effort, reach the top of this magnificent hilltop from which you have a glorious overview of the whole area. It is with awe that you will look around you 360 degrees and spotting the mediterranean sea in the distance on a clear day. The vastness of the hill side, the little villages tucked away in their valleys and the feeling of freedom and accomplishment when being up there make all the effort just into a regular work-out. You will need the basic equipment before starting on this climb like good shoes, water, some food and a windbreaker because the weather can change rapidly, but hauling all of this with you is really worth the while.

You will be granted one of the most magical moments of your life…..

Circle Dancing in Bugarach - Rennes-les-Bains, France Travel Blog

Circle Dancing in Bugarach - Rennes-les-Bains, France Travel Blog | Bugarach | Scoop.it

susiewoo...

 

When we'd shut up shop we were off to the next village of Bugarach for a shared meal and event of circle dancing.
This turned out to be a joy, a wonderfully groovy evening, quite in the spirit of Avalon. Indeed, one of the dances we did was called Wind On The Tor and had been created in Glastonbury.
A Balkan band produced lively music, and there were so many new faces to acquaint ourselves with, as well as Chloe and Richard whom we knew. 
One little grouplet, from the Chalabre area,  was particularly friendly, a rotund short lady, Esther, with her cute fluffy doggess Venus, her daughter Deva, and friend Jan, a schoolteacher, with had a lot of eye contact and smiles with me.
I conversed in French with Esther and she told me that the imposing mountain overlooking Bugarach attracted many people with its Christ energy, and that from it would emerge 'Jesus' in the form of the 'new man' and the 'new woman'.
We danced in blissfulness, ate the shared meal, and yet again resumed dancing. First we danced on the lawn, then in the school building. At past midnight we ended the evening with a big group hug, of energy and love, and also the temptation to giggle.

Ascending the hill, on our homewards journey, we were stopped from proceeding further by a wild boar on the road. Neither the lights or the engine scared it away. It was fascinating to observe this sanglier as I think it is called in France.

Mayan End of World Hype is Causing Real Fear Among Children

Mayan End of World Hype is Causing Real Fear Among Children | Bugarach | Scoop.it

All the hype about the Mayan End of the World is causing real fear, particularly in children.

 

In May, a 16-year-old UK girl by the name of Isabel Taylor hanged herself after she’d done extensive research on the Internet about Doomsday predictions, and convinced herself the world would end in 2012.  According to her friend, Taylor had become obsessed with the world ending—constantly making comments to friends and family about a nuclear disaster caused by sunspots resulting in a reaction so big as to end the world.

According to the 200 inhabitants of a small town in France called Pic de Bugarach, 20,000 people have descended on their hamlet to wait out and possibly save themselves from the impending doom.  At 1,230 meters (or 4,035 feet), it’s the highest peak in the Corbieres mountain range, and many believe that like Mount Sinai, it possesses mystical energies and magnetic waves. Many of the pilgrims or “New Agers” believe that on December 21st, aliens will come to the mountain and rescue them, taking them to the place of the “new age or era”. The French government is concerned that if nothing happens on the day, there could be mass suicides.  

John Kenhe, web developer of the site December 21, 2012, a doomsday clearinghouse of sorts, says the site he created in 2005 wasn’t meant to scare people but be a place for all opinions. Although Kenhe is an admitted  “prepper” —someone who is prepared for a disaster with food, water, and gas masks located in a bunker under his house— he doesn’t believe the world will end on 12/21.

“Whether we can witness it or not, something will happen on that day.  No one can know for sure what will happen. I tell my kids there will be a Christmas this year.  I feel positive that we’re headed for a more enlightened way of living on the planet,” Kehne says.

“When children are afraid or anxious by this doomsday stuff, it’s because they lack adult figures in their lives who aren’t reassuring them they’re safe,” said Dr. Saurabh Gupta, a researcher in the department of Psychiatry at UCSD. “Emotional safety is created by adults for children, kids can’t be held responsible for making themselves feel worry free—it’s not their job.”

Second inscription carved into stone staircase confirms 'end date' of Mayan calendar - December 21, 2012

Second inscription carved into stone staircase confirms 'end date' of Mayan calendar - December 21, 2012 | Bugarach | Scoop.it
Mayan carvings at La Corona: The 1,300-year-old inscription is described as one of the most significant hieroglyphic finds in decades

 

Archaeologists working at the La Corona dig site in Guatemala have discovered a 1,300-year-old-year Maya text that provides only the second known reference to the so-called ‘end date’ of the Maya calendar.

 

Inscriptions on Mayan tablets found in temples such as Tortuguero refer to 'the end' - and many internet conspiracy theories have predicted our world will be swallowed by a black hole, hit by an asteroid or devoured by ancient gods.

Cults have gathered in the tiny French village called Bugarach where they hope to survive the apocalypse.

Hundreds of books have been published on the subject since the Seventies, predicting Earth's demise at the hands of a mysterious planet Nibiru, or a black hole.

'The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth,' says Nasa, 'These fables were linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the winter solstice in 2012.'

But many ethnic Mayans dismiss the apocalyptic predictions as largely a Western idea.

Rather than the end of time itself, the inscriptions refer to the start of a new era.

The 'apocalypse' refers to the end of a cycle of 5,125 years since the beginning of the Mayan Long Count calendar in 3113 B.C.

Thousands Flock To France To Prepare For Doomsday, Waiting For Spaceship

Thousands Flock To France To Prepare For Doomsday, Waiting For Spaceship | Bugarach | Scoop.it
Thousands are flocking to what’s being referred to as the modern Noah’s Ark  near the tranquil Pyrenean Village of Bugarach  in order to prepare for Doomsday, which they believe is to occur on December 21 of this year, reports the Independent.

 

These flockers believe that when the apocalypse comes this December, aliens waiting in their spaceship inside the Pic de Bugarach will save all the humans near the area and transport them off to the next age.

Over the years there has been a belief the Pic de Bugarach, the highest in the Corbieres mountain range, may have mystical energies and strange power, with “New Agers”  flocking to the site since the 1960′s claiming that it emits special magnetic waves.

Referred to as the “upside-down mountain” because geologists believe the mountain actually exploded after its formation and had its top land the wrong way up, the Pic de Bugarach is thought to also have inspired Jules Verne’s Journey to the Center of the Earth and Steven Spielberg’s Close Encounter’s of the Third Kind.

A man known only as Jean, set up a yurt in the forest a couple of years ago to prepare for the earth’s demise stated:

“The apocalypse we believe in is the end of a certain world and the beginning of another. A new spiritual world. The year 2012 is the end of a cycle of suffering. Bugarach is one of the major chakras of the earth, a place devoted to welcoming the energies of tomorrow.”

The mayor of Bugarach, Jean-Pierre Delord, fearing the possibility of mass suicide, has requested the French authorities move its armies into the area.

Top Destination for Summer 2012 : Bugarach

Top Destination for Summer 2012 : Bugarach | Bugarach | Scoop.it

Resting in the foothills of the Pyrenees -- a region once home to the mysterious heretic sect of Catharas before they were driven underground in the 13th century -- Bugarach has inspired countless myths over the years. But the greatest myth is yet to come as visitors continue to pour in to town in the thousands awaiting "the apocalypse" on December 21, 2012. Apocalypse devotees, dressed in white, are fast becoming a familiar sight in the picturesque village, population 194. They're drawn here by a myriad of New Age theories, including claims that a nearby rocky outcrop, the Pic de Bugarach, harbors an alien technical base. Forget the Mayan heartland of Mexico, if you really want to get into the doomsday spirit, head to this French hill town and chat with the over 20,000 believers waiting for their alien saviors.

Bill Roache joins bizarre Doomsday movement in anticipation of end of the world

Bill Roache joins bizarre Doomsday movement in anticipation of end of the world | Bugarach | Scoop.it

CANCEL the insurance renewal and don’t make any holiday plans. As for Christmas shopping, forget it. You won’t be needing any of it come Dec­ember because – hang on to your shorts – that’s when THE WORLD WILL END SO WE’RE ALL GOING TO DIE!

Or at least the world and the way we live in it is going to change very radically. That is the prognosis according to the ancient Mayans and er... Ken Barlow off Coronation Street.

Bill Roache, the actor who plays him, sincerely believes that on December 12, 2012, the world will move into “a higher vibration” and enter a new, better era. Interviewed in the latest issue of Silent Voices (“the spiritual, paranormal, metaphysical magazine,” since you ask) Roache, 80, says: “This will be the Golden Age when a majority will know they are love and they are spiritual beings. The Earth will continue to cleanse itself while mat­erial and negative things will collapse and cease to be.”

Roache’s long-standing interest in matters spiritual is well-known. For years the story persisted that he was a Druid priest until he denied it, pointing out that he does not follow any formal religion or belief system. But in his latest pronouncements on the future of mankind he is far from a lone voice in the wilderness. He is part of a global movement known as the 2012 Phenomenon whose adherents believe the world will end at the winter solstice on December 21.

(...)

The village of Bugarach (pop. 189) in the French Pyrenees has experienced an apocalypse tourist boom since 2000. That is when Doomsday believers began flocking to their mountain the Pic de Bugarach believing it to be a) protected from destruction by the magnetic force which surrounds it and b) the gateway to another dimension and/or a base for alien gatherings. More than 20,000 have climbed the mountain this year (twice as many as in 2011) and the mayor is so worried about a massive influx that he is thinking of calling in the army.

But what is the basis for the 2012 Phenomenon? For that we must go back two millennia to the Mayans, the ancient but highly developed civilisation of Central America. The Mayans were mathematicians and astronomers and kept time differently from us. In a system known as the Long Count they used units of 20, culminating in a period of time known as a b’ak’tun and corresponding to 394 years. They also believed the world moves through ages each lasting 13 b’ak’tuns or 5,125 years. According to their calendar the current world age - the fourth - is due to end on December 21, 2012. In any case, the Mayan calendar stops then.

More News on the end of the world. | Bugarach | Scoop.it

Yes, we all know that the end of the world is nigh, however, if you want to survive the impeding apocolypse, there os one place in the world that will be spared. The small village of Bugarach in France’s eastern pyrenees mountains – for wine lovers, this is corbières country.

Why will Bugarach be spared ? – well, follow the web link below, and you will see the mountain that rises above the village.

http://www.bugarach.fr

 

Not just a simple mountain though – a site of extra terrestrial activity. Some say the mountain is a beacon for flying saucers, others claim it is a car park for alien craft, there might even be aliens living in the moutain (I hope they are enjoying the wine).

Needless to say, over the summer Bugarach has attracted its fair hare of loonies, and the local population are unhappy at being invaded by a bunch of weirdos who are setting up home in and around the village, ready to be saved on December 21st

 

Needless to say though, some villagers are very happy. This weekend’s press reports on money-making scams of some industrious villagers.

- hacking bits out the moutain and selling them as souvenirs. Prices start at 1.50 Euros for one gramme of rock.
- prayers – send 60 Euros and a local will pray for you at the foot of the mountain I presume this is supposed to save you without you physically having to go to Bugarach.

 

I’ve covered Bugarach before on the blog, but as the end of the world approaches, I will keep you informed.

Un OVNI venant d'Andromède se dirigerait vers Bugarach

Un OVNI venant d'Andromède se dirigerait vers Bugarach | Bugarach | Scoop.it

Il y aura peut-être un OVNI au hangar souterrain du Pic de Bugarach le 21 décembre 2012. Tout n'est pas perdu, on a encore un chance d'assister à la fin du monde. En effet, un OVNI a été détecté entre la galaxie d'Andromède et la Terre. Ce modèle d'OVNI est bien connu, mieux que ceux de Roswell ou de Kingman. Un modèle expérimental s'est écrasé en 1981 dans les Vosges et a été récupéré par le professeur Jean Céryhin, le scientifique qui connaît certainement le mieux nos deux extraterrestres puisqu'il les voit assez souvent. Toutefois, deux théories s'affrontent sur le lieu d'arrivée de l'OVNI. Certains penchent pour le Pic de Bugarach, d'autres verraient plutôt le Pic du Canigou. En effet, l'OVNI file sur une trajectoire ordonnée: 1,01° par rapport à la ligne du centre galactique d'Andromède et du centre de la Terre.


Cette trajectoire situe l'impact non pas au Pic de Bugarach mais au Pic du Canigou. Les partisans de la théorie Bugarach pensent que c'est possible mais que l'engin survolera le Pic de Bugarach 16 mn avant le Canigou. Comme sa vitesse ne sera plus assez élevée, il percutera le Pic de Bugarah culminant à 1230 mètres. Les partisans du Pic du Canigou rétorquent que Salvador Dali considérait la gare de Perpignan comme le centre du monde. En effet, la gare est ornée des gigantesques fresques de Salvador Dali qui contiendraient les points de la trajectoire que doivent emprunter les extraterrestres. Or, Salvador Dali a déclaré: «J'ai eu à la gare de Perpignan une espèce d'extase cosmogonique plus forte que les précédentes. J'ai eu une vision exacte de la constitution de l'Univers. L'Univers, qui est l'une des choses les plus limitées qui existe, serait, toutes proportions gardées, semblable par sa structure à la gare de Perpignan...» En effet, on peut lire sur la façade de la gare: " El Centre del Mon". Donc, si la gare de Perpignan est le centre du monde, l'OVNI s'écrasera forcément au Pic du Canigou plus haut et plus près du centre que le Pic de Bugarach. Reste à déterminer la date de la fin du monde, on ne peut plus utiliser le calendrier des Mayas, le calendrier des Mayas est prévu pour Bugarach. Pour donner une date exacte de la fin du monde (l'OVNI contient une charge de 3 millions de mégatonnes), il faut calculer quand il va s'écraser.

Bugarach prépare l'après-Apocalypse

Bugarach prépare l'après-Apocalypse | Bugarach | Scoop.it
Le podium attire l'attention des futurs survivants sur leur avenir. Ils seront obligés de s'organiser et créer une nouvelle communauté qui devra, comme toujours, être gérée par un chef.
ECAL/Denis Rouèche

 

Après l'Apocalypse du 21 décembre 2012, seul Bugarach survivra. Cette prédiction, issue des théories sur la fin du monde qui enflamment la Toile, a donné des sueurs froides à Jean-Pierre Delord, le maire de cette petite bourgade de 194 âmes, coincée entre la Catalogne du Nord et le Pays Cathare, dans le sud de la France.

Voici un an et demi, Jean-Pierre Delord faisait part de ses craintes de voir débarquer des centaines sinon des milliers «d'illuminés» le 21 décembre 2012. Depuis, Bugarach a eu les honneurs de la presse nationale et internationale, jusqu'au prestigieux New York Times. Le nombre de touristes est passé du simple au double. Jean-Pierre Delord a donc décidé d'assumer l'image de «village de fin du monde», et de l'exploiter.

«Nous travaillons avec une société qui, à travers internet, va proposer aux habitants du monde entier de stocker des lettres testamentaires à Bugarach», explique Jean-Pierre Delord. «Je vais aussi créer une fondation pour préserver la montagne de Bugarach, où se rendent les pèlerins», dit-il.

 

Popularité

Voilà pour les projets. L'exploitation touristique est, elle, déjà en marche. «Nous vendons par exemple des cartes postales à 1 euro qui représentent le pic avec une soucoupe volante au-dessus. Nous les avons signées David Vincent, le personnage principale de la série ‹Les Envahisseurs›», rigole le maire. «Par contre, il est faux de dire que le prix du terrain a augmenté en raison de cette histoire de fin du monde», poursuit-il. Selon lui, les prix ont en fait augmenté avec l'arrivée des Anglo-Saxons.

Jean-Pierre Delord ne craint-il pas le discrédit si, par un heureux hasard, la fin du monde n'arrivait pas le 21 décembre 2012? «Non. Des experts disent maintenant que la date est fausse. L'Apocalypse n'aurait en fait pas lieu cette année mais dans 15 ans. Cela nous fait 15 ans de promotion devant nous!», s'amuse-t-il.

Ils se sont promenés dans un village normal

Ils se sont promenés dans un village normal | Bugarach | Scoop.it
De retour de Bugarach, chez des amis dans le Carcassonnais : le couple témoigne.

 

Marc et Isabelle Stoquert habitent Bourges. Elle est aide-puéricultrice et lui dirige une entreprise de réinsertion sociale. Si le Cher leur est cher, Bugarach aussi, non pas tant pour la fin des temps, prévue le 21 décembre, et qui les fait se bidonner joyeusement, mais plutôt pour les paysages.

"Il y a vingt ans, nous avions fait un tronçon du 'Sentier cathare' : Duilhac-Montségur qui transite par Bugarach et l'endroit nous avait plu quand on l'avait traversé", confie Marc. Évidemment, comme des millions de terriens, le couple a lu sur internet toutes ces histoires de fin du monde.

"Mais quand on a réservé notre séjour pour l'été, c'est le dépaysement qui nous motivait, précise Isabelle, on voulait y revenir depuis longtemps". Début août, ils se sont donc offert une cure au "Presbytère" (une vieille demeure aménagée en chambres d'hôtes). "Ce n'est pas cher et la cuisine est à base de produits du terroir". Marc sait de quoi il parle : avant de s'occuper de réinsertion, il a dirigé un jardin biologique, près de Bourges.

Un groupe genre secte

"A Bugarach, nous avons rencontré un maraîcher 'bio' avec lequel nous avons discuté de tout sauf de la fin du monde. Il a plutôt parlé de ses problèmes notamment des paysans du coin qui ne veulent pas vendre leurs terrains. Résultat, il ne peut pas s'agrandir. Bref, il y a plus grave que l'apocalypse... Qui pour bien des gens d'ici reste, disent-ils, 'un truc de journalistes'".

À cette nuance près que le "truc" émane d'un site internet dont notre titre a signalé le contenu (sur un mode humoristique) dans ces mêmes colonnes le 30  novembre 2010. Et les fantasmes ont fait le reste. "L'année dernière, les villageois ont été choqués de voir des journalistes japonais dans leur village alors que selon eux, ils auraient dû être présents dans leur pays pour couvrir la catastrophe du tsunami", confie Isabelle. Décidément, ces journalistes...

Pendant son séjour, le couple berruyer s'est offert l'incontournable du lieu : une randonnée sur le pic. Oui, mais... "Nous n'avons pas vu de gens bizarres. Les randonneurs qu'on a croisés étaient normaux. En fait, pour être franc, à Bugarach, tout est normal. En trois jours, on n'a rien noté de spécial. Cela dit si on veut vraiment voir des gens pas très clairs, mieux vaut aller à Rennes-les-Bains. Alors là, c'est impressionnant ! Sur la place du village, en prenant le café, on a vu un type habillé en blanc qui racontait comment il fallait faire pour survivre à la fin du monde. On a vu aussi un groupe de personnes habillées dans des sortes de sacs à patates, genre secte...". Ah, quand même ! Il n'empêche, Bugarach, un village normal : bizarre...

 

[Note du Curateur] Ce RAS à Bugarach m'inspire un proverbe berruyer : il est vrai que 5 minutes avant l'Apocalypse, ce n'est toujours pas l'Apocalypse !

Apocalypse now? German drops Mayan magical skull owned by Himmler... and it could mark the end of the world on 21-12-12

Apocalypse now? German drops Mayan magical skull owned by Himmler... and it could mark the end of the world on 21-12-12 | Bugarach | Scoop.it

Apocalypse soon: For some, ancient Mayan calculations indicate the world will end on December 21, 2012

 

If the world ends on December 21, blame a German butterfingers who dropped a volcanic rock skull once owned by SS overlord Heinrich Himmler in his laboratory this week.

According to legend, the Mayan skull, which was stolen from Tibet by the Nazis and imbued for believers with magical powers to enable mankind to survive an apocalypse, fell and chipped during a photo shoot.

For some, this is a catastrophe that foretells the end of the world, but others advise us to keep calm and carry on.

'It was probably put down somewhere a bit wobbly,' an eyewitness told a German newspaper.
'Suddenly it crashed to the floor. A big piece broke off the chin. It's really tragic.'

Thomas Ritter, an historian who owns the skull, said it was given to him by the family of a former British soldier present at the 1945 arrest of Himmler, who ran the Gestapo, the SS and the extermination programme which murdered six million Jews.

He added that he believed its accident wouldn't 'anger the Gods' and that the world will still be turning on December 22.

The skull is 1,000 years old and one of the legendary Mayan skulls that belonged to the lost, ancient race of Mexico, which were said to be infused with magical powers.

The 3lb skull is made of volcanic rock and, according to Ritter, was seized by SS men sent on an expedition to Tibet between 1937 and 1939 to look for the lost city of Shangri-La.

Ritter said: 'The Nazis were convinced that 13 such skulls existed and that whoever owned them would have control of the world.'

Himmler died on May 23, 1945 using a poison capsule hidden in his mouth to take his life.

 

MANY CONVINCED THE END IS NIGH

Some interpretations of the ancient Mayan calendar point to December 21, 2012 as the end of the world.

Mexico's tourism agency expects to draw 52 million visitors this year to the five states richest in Mayan heritage to see sights such as the Pyramid of Kukulcan in Chichen Itza (pictured above).

Other theorists have found evidence of a 2012 apocalypse in the Bible or the prophesies of Nostradamus.

The hamlet of Bugarach, in the south of France, has attracted the attention of a government watchdog monitoring cults and suspicious spiritual activities.

Bugarach - and the rocky outcrop of Pic de Bugarach - have had an influx of New Age visitors who believe it is the only place in the world which will survive an apocalypse.

Limoux: crème de crémant

Languedoc rock: Pic de Bugarach near the Limoux vineyards — the only place on earth where humans will survive Doomsday, apparently  Photo: ALAMY

In the glamorous world of fizz, limoux hardly gets a look in. You may well not have heard of it at all. It’s worth knowing about though, especially in these days of £10-a-bottle (and often disappointing) prosecco, because in Limoux they make really, really good sparkling wine. Not just good. It’s distinctive, with a fresh, edgy air of hedgerows and meadows and wild countryside that makes it completely right for a Jubilee party.

Limoux is both a town and one of Languedoc’s most westerly appellation contrôlées (AOC). It lies in Cathar country, just to the south of Carcassonne, a tangle of hilly vineyards that give way to ancient forests. Stand among the vines at Château Rives-Blanques in the north and you look out across the valley towards a perfect line of snowy Pyrenean peaks. From Domaine Delmas on the higher ground of the south of the appellation, you can peer between the hills and see the distinctive silhouette of the Pic de Bugarach.

This mountain is said by New Age believers to have deep magical powers that will make it the only place on earth where humans will survive Doomsday, which will apparently take place this December 21. No one knows quite how this will happen; one theory is that a giant alien spaceship will emerge from the Pic and transport anyone nearby to a new universe.

“Some Americans have booked their flights here already,” says Richard Planas, the director of the Limoux AOC, as we hurtle between tastings in his car. “The funny thing is that they’ve bought return tickets…”

They have been making fizz in Limoux for centuries and locals argue that as the first recorded mention of it, in the cellars of the Benedictine abbey of Saint-Hilaire, dates back to 1531, long before that other Benedictine monk, Dom Perignon, was born, their sparkling wine was a precursor to champagne.

White Owl Conspiracy: Spaceship to Save Thousands Before Doomsday

White Owl Conspiracy: Spaceship to Save Thousands Before Doomsday | Bugarach | Scoop.it

Hundreds of thousands of believers are flocking to Bugarach, France to be saved from Doomsday on December 21, 2012. An Alien Spaceship will rescue all who are near the sacred Pic De Bugarach Mountain before the apocalypse hits.

Are you prepared for the end of the world on December 21, 2012? If not, then you might want to join the hundreds of thousands (projected to possibly a million) of people that are planning on being near the Pyrenean Village of Bugarach in France.

The area is being dubbed as the modern day Noah’s Ark to the people who think they will be saved from the coming apocalypse on or before December 21 of this year. Thousands of believers weekly are coming into this small town which has a population of only 200 usually. Current estimates are that there are more than 100,000 people already in the area with projections of anywhere from 300,000 to possibly one million people coming before the middle of December.

 

So how will these believers be saved from the coming apocalypse you ask? Well, here is where the story gets downright bizarre if it wasn’t already. A spaceship(s) will transport all the people in the area to safety and these survivors will enter a “new age” with their alien saviors. Anyone who is not in the immediate vicinity of the area will surely perish in the coming apocalypse and the only surviving members of the human race will be the ones aboard the spaceship(s).

Now the question is why this location? Well, it seems that one mountain in particular is at the heart of the story. That mountain is named Pic De Bugarach which happens to be the highest mountain in the Corbieres Mountain range. It is also one of the most sacred mountains to “New Agers” who claim that it actually emits strange magnetic waves.

Bugarach. Un maire pris dans le vent de l'éolien

Bugarach. Un maire pris dans le vent de l'éolien | Bugarach | Scoop.it
Le maire de Bugarach, Jean-Pierre Delord, est au cœur d'une tourmente administrative.

 

Le maire de Bugarach, Jean-Pierre Delord, est au cœur d'une tourmente administrative. Il a signé un protocole d'accord avec une société éolienne sans avoir obtenu le feu vert du conseil municipal. La justice pénale pourrait également être saisie.

Si Bugarach attire les tenants de l'apocalypse, la vie municipale n'en est pas moins riche. Et ses turpitudes n'ont rien de céleste. Car à Bugarach, on rêve d'installer un parc éolien. Et tous les moyens ont semblé bons à Jean-Pierre Delord (*), le maire de la commune, pour parvenir à ses fins. Avec trois autres communes (Fourtou, Camps-sur-l'Agly et Cubières-sur-Cinoble), la célèbre commune audoise a ouvert ses bras à des promoteurs éoliens.

 

[Note du Curateur] Partant du constat que l'hypothèse de l'Apocalypse génère beaucoup de vent, l'idée d'exploiter ce filon en installant un parc éolien tient la route.

A Doomsday Launchpad in France?

A Doomsday Launchpad in France? | Bugarach | Scoop.it
French chateaus, picturesque rivieras and places like Mont Saint-Michel -- a landmark that is second only to the Eiffel Tower are just a few of the tourist destinations that France touts. Paris alone is reason enough to visit the museum-laden country, but for one group of New Age believers, there can only be one "city of lights."

Pic de Bugarach, a mountain popular for being the inspiration behind Jules Verne's book, Journey to the Center of the Earth, has become a temporary home to an estimated 20,000 people -- all who claim the infamous peak is an ancient launching pad that will activate on Dec. 21, 2012.

The doomsday theories are nothing new, but in an unusual twist these specific esoterics believe that the Pic de Bugarach is more than a mountain -- it is a sacred land occupied by aliens as we speak. According to their beliefs, once the apocalypse begins the aliens will reveal themselves to the patiently faithful and take them on a journey in a Noah's-ark-meets-Star Wars-voyage to another universe.

 

"The apocalypse we believe in is the end of a certain world and the beginning of another," one of the New Age pilgrims going only by the name "Jean" tells the paper. "A new spiritual world... the year 2012 is the end of a cycle of suffering. Bugarach is one of the major chakras of the earth, a place devoted to welcoming the energies of tomorrow."
