Peter Gersten: Still Planning His Apocalyptic Leap?
"If I'm wrong, everybody dies."
So proclaims a 70-year-old freethinker in an online video (ebaumsworld.com) entitled "Apocalypse 2012 Hero Peter Gersten" about his plan to save the world by leaping off a towering rock at the moment the winter solstice arrives.
Human beings, he believes, are part of a computer program, a hologram.
Peter Gersten is known as "the UFO lawyer" for his legal efforts to find out what the US government really knows about strange things in the sky. He has announced that he will leap from Bell Rock in Sedona, Arizona at 11:11 UT (Universal Time) or 4:11 AM local time on December 21st, 2012.
As one article has noted, the winter solstice doesn't really occur until 11:12 UT. Hopefully Gersten won't jump the gun. Maybe he needs a minute head start to achieve his goal: participating in a T-DE, Trans-Dimensional Event, that will allow him to enter a cosmic portal.
I wrote before about Gersten's Leap of Faith but I didn't know about the save the world angle. He states in the video that he's doing this for his children and grandchildren, all of the carbon-based life forms in this world.
In a prepared statement published months ago Gersten said that he didn't know what would exactly happen when the fateful moment arrived. He said:
"...I believe that some type of cosmic portal will be opening at that time and place and that an opportunity will present itself. I fully expect that it will either lead to the next level of this cosmic program; freedom from an imprisoning time-loop; a magical Martian-like bubble; or something equally as exotic."
Gersten says the we're all trapped in a computer program that is scheduled to shut down. Unfortunately I haven't found any further details on how his leap will stop the Apocalypse except it somehow undoes the prophecies of doom. Maybe his leap will reset the cosmic computer?
Another video I found on YouTube -- "Peter Gersten Bell Rock Leap of Faith," -- provides a possible answer to how his leap will save the world. At one point it seems that Gersten, responding to a question, mentions something about a corrupting virus in the computer program. There's a lot of wind noise that drowns out most of his reply but I'm guessing the Leap of Faith will transform him into an anti-virus.
In this second video Gersten also mentions that the jump is 20 months away and that his family and friends aren't taking him that seriously.
Gersten explains he is going to go "be in the moment," seeing what happens at the magic time. The universe, he continues, will fill in the details. Asked what he will do if the portal doesn't appear, he replied someone on this side might be needed to open it and so he will have to do it himself by jumping.
There's a disturbing moment in the video when Gersten responds to a question, saying that December 21st, 2012 should be a good day to die. A video crew member corrects him, telling him to use the term transition, not die. Gersten sorta shrugs his shoulders, saying transition or death, it's just a question of semantics.
In his prepared statement Gersten observed:
"Most of you will think that I am delusional and that my insane act will certainly result in my death. Death is inevitable – at least nowadays – and 100 years from now it won’t matter whether I died in 2012 or 2013 or even 2020."
I can only speculate on what he really going on inside Peter Gersten's head. Maybe he's having some doubt with his belief in the cosmic portal. Doubt does strike at times with people of faith.
A cynic would say this is a way of getting attention, making one's life have more meaning. I'm guessing that as the time draws near Gersten's friends and family are trying to talk him out of his leap.
No news -- at least any I can find online -- whether or not he has changed his mind.
