Will the Next ‘Pandemic’ Coincide with an Imminent ‘Solar Maximum’?

By Dr. Mathew Maavak

Earlier this week, I had this peculiar sensation where I felt that my brain was being microwaved in slow motion, if that makes any sense. In the midst of this oppressive languor, an idea struck me: Were the recent, much-debated solar storms behind this malaise? Why not research the topic and publish my take on the matter? I am qualified to commentate on this topic as I am conversant with systems theory, and in its subset, Complex Adaptive System (CAS).

According to the Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC), Earth was subjected to a dynamic solar flare from an active sunspot called Region 3664 between May 10 and 13. It peaked on May 11 as a massive X5.8 class flare. The X-class constitutes the most powerful category of solar flares.

As a result, parts of the earth’s exposed side encountered temporary or complete loss of high frequency (HF) radio signals for a short period of time.

Now, the Earth periodically faces 11-year solar cycles. The current one, called Solar Cycle 25, began in December 2019 and is expected to peak into a “solar maximum” between late 2024 and early 2025. Rather coincidentally, the coronavirus “pandemic” began at the beginning of Solar Cycle 25. Is there a link between changes in solar activities and disease outbreaks? Read on…

During a solar maximum, the sun disgorges huge amounts of energy in the form of solar flares and coronal mass ejections (CMEs) which can adversely impact Earth’s magnetosphere, leading to frequent and intense geomagnetic storms which can manifest themselves as auroras. These spectacular visual displays were seen in several low latitude parts of the continental United States (e.g. Texas, Alabama, Florida, etc.) from May 10-13.

The brief YouTube clip below is an excellent conspectus on this phenomenon. It also explains the difference between solar flares and CMEs and their cumulative effects.

Solar storms can not only disrupt satellite communications, power grids, and navigation systems, they may also affect human and animal behaviour. Migratory species such as birds, bees and fish use the Earth’s magnetic field as a natural compass for their long journeys. Geomagnetic storms may distort these magnetic cues. This leads to disorientation and navigational errors, landing these animals in unfamiliar or hazardous environments. The phenomenon of beached whales is tied to intense geomagnetic activity

A major solar storm may severely impair the pollination activities of honeybees. Coincidentally, the global wild bee population has been declining worldwide and this has serious ramifications for the ecology and food security.  Solar storms also affect the biological rhythms and physiological processes of cervids (deers) and cattle, making them more susceptible to infections and diseases.

Effects on human health

Biospheric and geophysical factors (from temperature fluctuations to earthquakes to volcanic eruptions, etc.) along with solar fluctuations can affect life on earth. Several studies have discovered a significant surge in hospital admissions during periods of heightened solar activity.

The human body, particularly its cardiovascular and central nervous systems, is highly sensitive to electromagnetic fields. Geomagnetic storms can disrupt the heart rate variability (HRV) which is crucial to stress response and emotional regulation. The pineal gland, which regulates circadian rhythms by producing melatonin, is especially sensitive to electromagnetic activity. Melatonin is crucial for sleep regulation, and disruptions in its production can lead to sleep disorders, mood swings, suicidal ideations, headaches, epileptic seizures, cognitive impairments and high blood pressure, among others.

Quality sleep is the ultimate healer of the human body. This is the reason why you should avoid sleeping next to your cellphone or anywhere close to a WiFi router. Close proximity to telecommunications and electrical transmission towers, not to mention 5G antennas, will vitiate the nocturnal healing process.

Solar radiation can severely impair one’s immune system, leading to a variety of ailments and increased mutation rates in pathogens. The field of medicine that explores the historical correlation between solar activity and disease outbreaks is interchangeably known as biometeorology, astrobiology or astrobiomedicine.  Historical epidemiologists in this field have discovered intriguing correlations dating back to the Justinian plague (AD 541–549) and beyond. Referencing the Athenian Plague, which wiped out 25% of the city’s population between 430–426 BC, Alexey Ju. Retejum concluded the following:

The singularity of this disease, which exceeds any means of expression, was shown not only in the fact that the disease affected people with a force that human nature could not bear, but also in the fact that, unlike everything previously observed, birds and quadrupeds that feed on human corpses did not touch the corpses at all…(but disappeared nonetheless). The disease affected everyone, both strong and weak, without distinction in lifestyle. 

Retejum was actually referring to the effects of a Grand Solar Minimum here, and presents another intriguing hypothesis that links lowered solar activity with outbreaks of diseases. A grand solar minimum is marked by a steep drop in temperatures. The Black Death of AD 1346-1353 reportedly occurred during one of these muted solar cycles.

If wide oscillations in solar activity can induce pathogenic outbreaks, how about  electromagnetic/radiation surges from human devices such as telecommunication systems? Remember the dwindling wild bee population mentioned earlier? Their numbers have been consistently shrinking through three decades of solar maxima and minima.

Research into this topic has been somewhat suppressed, partly due to lobbying from the telecommunications and pharmaceutical industries. In fact, there is a small but vocal number of dissident doctors who insist that the Spanish Flu of 1918-1920 — which killed anywhere between 17 million and 100 million individuals worldwide — was primarily caused by the rapid and widespread introduction of telegraph and electricity systems.
