*Will Humans Overpopulate Planet Earth?

When discussing a subject that affects every human on the planet, many issues raised are going to be controversial.

Who hasn’t heard someone mention ‘depopulation’ in the last few years?

Today, I heard someone state that 100 years ago there was ONE BILLION people on the planet. The first problem with this statement is, how do we know that, when we didn’t have electrical communications that we have today. And many places were still unexplored. Perhaps they were talking about the ‘civilised peoples’ who had participated in a census. 

This someone also stated that in 1918 the world’s population of only ONE BILLION was reduced by ONE HALF due to the Spanish Flu Epidemic. It is hard to imagine only half a billion people in the population when today’s estimation is at 7 AND A HALF BILLION…and rising. Estimates of 11 BILLION are being projected for 2100. 

The graph below shows quite clearly how the first increase started 3,000 years ago and then dramatically doubled 200 years ago (but doesn’t show the decimation from flu, 100 years ago), then rose unabated to its present 7.5 billion today. 

I am sceptical of statistics, but this graph does at least give an over-view of the trend. Read from left to right…

The ‘someone’ I mention has suggested several different ways the world could end tomorrow. Is this just us being prepared, being doom-and-gloomy, or a realistic projection? What is a self-fulfilling prophecy?

Looking at Nature, we may gain some insights. When a species over-populates it may become food for predators, it may self-consume, migrate or deplete in number due to lack of food. Some species self-regulate their reproduction, and sometimes infertility does it for them. 

What is humanity’s natural predator?  Nature’s seasons can go wrong and bring drought and famine, extreme winters or flood. Sometimes the enemy is within, with viral epidemics or war; sometimes the enemy is without, as in a global cataclysm.

What has happened in the past? This question is very seldom asked for a couple of reasons. Not many people are interested enough to inquire into the historical record, think about it, or care, keeping their heads safely buried in the sand while they go on consuming without reserve. Creationists don’t believe we have a past long enough for this problem to have been experienced before, because God’s world is only 6,000 years old, according to their narrative. The science community is divided, but most believe in a progressive time-line where population increase is exponential and this problem of over-population has not presented itself before. In this case, our demise must be  from doing something wrong ourselves, polluting the environment and causing climate problems, and draining resources, something we cannot deny. 

A vast population is a problem in itself, as it puts strains on the production of food and provisions of resources, especially fuel and minerals. Industrialisation is a short term solution to provide for the hungry host, but it is devastating, long term.

Recently, independent researchers have realised that this problem may indeed have happened before and been solved. The thin and vague evidence of the Atlantean Era does not appeal to many, but does present a possibility of a previous population of civilised humans that was advanced in technology and intellect and may have seen a high rise in population numbers, but disappeared from the surface of Earth “in one night”, along with all evidence.

The world-wide legends of a global flood, which support the Biblical story of Noah and his Ark, present one possible reason why all evidence of previous large populations has been wiped out.

Younger Dryas 10.5 to 11.5  thousand years ago (present time on the left of graph) 

New studies of what may have caused the short ice-age, called the Younger Dryas, 10.5 – 11.5 thousand years ago, have raised new theories of a world cataclysm which was unprecedented and unexpected. Landscape destruction in the Columbia Basin, the Carolina Bays, and Siberia, may present evidence of a large asteroid implosion*. The eruption of the super-volcano, Mount Toba, in Sumatra, was also a catastrophic event. These events and the ensuing Y D ice-age would significantly have decreased the population at the time.

*[See the work of Randall Carson and Graham Hancock]

There is one piece of evidence that is shining a light on this question: the ice-core samples from the Arctic regions, which show a fairly regular cycle of ICE AGES that last approximately 100,000 years, with a warm inter-glacial period lasting approximately 15,000 years, in between. It is during these warm periods that  life takes off on Planet Earth. With warmer climates and larger territories to inhabit, food production – or agriculture – takes over from just hunting and gathering, and the human population increases like lilies in the field. 

As the Ice Age comes to its natural end and the ice cap retreats, the growth of population occurs specifically on these pristine new territories, mainly in the northern hemisphere. The equatorial regions remain populated with the indigenous peoples, as before.  This demarcation line is named the Tropic of Cancer  north of the equator,and the Tropic of Capricorn, south of the equator. 

The population grows…and grows, for around 15,000 years, rising and falling at times of plenty and times of hardship. 

Now we can see that this is exactly where we are at the present time. The home planet is full and the store cupboards are hard to fill; the garden is depleted and the fuel store is looking bare. 

What happened last time we found ourselves in this situation? The world turned and another ice age began. Land was covered in ice and the living quarters were reduced. Food and fuel was short. The human population diminished and was reduced to a size the planet could sustain. 

After another 100,000 years the world turned again, according to its Nature, and the climate warmed up; the land recovered as the ice retreated, and humans lived happily in their Garden of Eden. 

What turns the Earth on her axial tilt in these long climatic cycles? The Moon-Earth gravitational relationship and the ice-water ratio.

*The Sways of Nature

To survive in this world, Man has had to learn Earth’s patterns and anomalies and work with them for his own benefit. Besides attending to his day-to-day needs he has had to look to the Heavens for help and learn the intricacies of this organic living planet in relation to the cosmos. Yet hard as he has tried, he has been caught out by some extreme and unexpected changes.

His basic needs of food and shelter have progressed from an opportunist approach to one of organisation and husbandry. Man and animals have different ways of managing their food supply.
Large herds of beasts, flocks of birds or swarms of insects can completely devastate the local environment from which they are feeding and then move swiftly on. It is not a complete failure, because Nature replenishes the stocks after they have gone.
Family groups, like primates, that like to stay put and make a home, tend to have a more varied diet and make sure that no part of that diet is eaten completely, so that it can continually restore itself. Agriculture gave Man a new way to grow what he needed for his whole settlement.
Many animals, including humans, learnt to store food when there is an abundance, to keep a supply for the lean times.
Early Humans seem to have gone one step further in that they invented a system of praying to the nature gods and goddesses to help them. It is possible that this was after the advent of agriculture, when people realised that they, themselves, could work with Nature and manage their crops and animal stock in a co-operative and conscious way, but there were some mysterious events that they could not predict and needed to elicit the help of the unseen powers.
There were virile gods and goddesses of fertility who helped with the setting of the seeds and mating of animals, none more so than the power of the sun and the moon deities which influenced the success of propagation on Earth, who was a Mother Goddess herself.
There is much evidence of seasonal rituals performed by these ancient people, to celebrate the Sacred Marriage of the gods and goddesses and bestow good fortune on the consummation of that marriage, thereby procuring good fortune on their harvest. These rituals must have been seen to be successful when prolific harvests followed. Of course, this may have happened without the added ‘good luck’ from the gods, but a failure, in the minds of the people, was due to the failure of the ritual. Superstition works when the appropriate result follows the appropriate action, both negatively and positively.
But did the early people believe something that we have forgotten – that they really could influence this unseen but powerful energy force?
Dowsers of natural energy show that the life-force in our world has two distinct ‘polarities’. These can be called + and – , positive and negative, or male and female. Each of these has a flow, or character, or effect, that is different to the other. One has a clock-wise and descending spin – and has a more direct, highly tuned feel – where the other runs anticlockwise and ascends and is more fluctuating, or rhythmic and soft. In the planet Earth, the poles, or focal points of these two energies are in the north and south Arctic regions.

Prophecies of old have forewarned us about a ‘Pole Shift’ or even a ‘Pole Swap’. Now that our scientists can study the physical mechanics of our Earth’s magnetic field, which is caused by the emanations of magnetism from molten magma flexing around the crystalline metallic core, and the positioning of the magnetic poles, they can confirm that we have had Pole Shifts before, and are likely to have more in the future.


Our scientists have found that the Magnetic Shift has already started and will likely cause a ‘flip’ into a Pole Reversal. The South Atlantic Anomaly, which is a weakening area of our magnetic field, affects the instruments on the International Space Station every time it crosses it, while orbiting the planet, and has shown that this area is allowing an increased level of protons into our vicinity. We will experience different phenomena as this happens but one important effect will be on bird migrations: it is highly likely that the Natural World, and especially certain animals, will give us signs that it is happening.

p1000975Geomancers of the past have known about the magnetic nature of the living energy of our planet and have been able to trace lines, commonly called ‘Ley’ lines, or ‘dragon’ lines. When we look at the position of megalithic monuments along these lines, and at intersections called ‘nodes’, we can see that our ancestors went to great lengths to put these great stones in place, so there must have been an important reason for doing so. Many of the megalithic circles, or ‘landscape temples’, are also calendars which mark out the solstices and equinoxes and watch the subtle changes in their cycles. They also align to the zodiac constellations and are our gauge on the great cycle of the turning cosmos, called The Great Year, or Precession of the Equinoxes. The stones may also have been an attempt to ‘fix’ the energy in that place to stabilise it, or to mark concentrations of energy and benefit from it. Some studies have noted alignments around the world to a different North and South magnetic pole and a different Equator – on which sat the Great Pyramid at Giza. The period of the last Pole Shift may have been around the time of the Great Flood, around 10- 12,000 B.C.E.

Once the studies of the past and the studies of the present come together, it may present a full picture of how these anomalies not only repeat but can be predictable. Now we have the technology to know what the ancients also seem to have known, we should be well prepared. But what seems remarkable is that this subject still seems to be one of conjecture, or one dismissed as mystical or unfathomable, or antiquated or science-fiction, or one that is only discussed behind closed doors… and a subject of which the general public seems to be blissfully unaware.

A pole-shift, or reversal of polarity of the Earth’s magnetic field, may not be felt or noticed immediately except by measuring it with instruments, but an ‘axial tilt’ shift is a very different thing. If the tilt of Earth’s axis should increase or decrease, the effects would be felt physically in seismic upheavals and noticed immediately in changes in the sun and moon positions and radical climate changes. Extreme changes may occur, plummeting us into an Ice Age.

Evidence of large areas of land changing dramatically from one climate to another is very visible. For example, both the Sahara desert and the Gobi desert show evidence of large areas of water and vegetation, and the Antarctic has given up its secret landscape and habitation to reveal a green and pleasant continent beneath its miles-thick ice-cap.

Something obviously turned the world.

In the following short video, we can see an imaginary turning of Earth after a possible 40 degree axial tilt.

In our new book “There Is Something About The Moon…”, John H Shaughnessy and  I, Wendy H Salter, explain how the Moon has the muscle to pull the Earth into new axial tilts, with an original theory. Using Arctic ice-core sample results, they demonstrate how the regular cycles of cold and warm climates, in reoccurring Ice Ages and Inter-glacial, or Water Ages, change the shape of our planet and thus change the gravitational torque relationship between the Earth and the Moon… thus changing the tilt angle. Can the Moon actually tell us when the next axial tilt may happen, and when the next Ice Age may occur?

*My Book Reviews

HERSTORIA, my first novel, has now been published and been followed by my second, GREEN STONES, and my third, PERSIAN CARPET.

You can order a copy by sending me an email first, to wendy@wendysalter.com

The price is £7.99 plus £1.50 p&p.


HERSTORIA – a life out of time’is a four-part story about Brieze, who loses first her mother at the age of three, then her father when she was fourteen. At twenty-eight she is heading for a crisis but then remembers that her grandmother had taught her how to travel outside of Earth time. By re-visiting the proverbial history books of time Brieze comes to realise that the connection she has with her loved ones, and ultimately with her soul, goes far beyond this one life-time. Not only does Brieze meet her spirit guardians in different characters, but she discovers where she has known the souls of her parents and her children before. She even meets her grandchildren before they are born in her present time. Other relationships reveal their deeper meanings, too. It shows her, in an unmistakable way, that she is part of a timeless relationship-family and her own earthly personalities are transient. It heals her loneliness and sense of loss by helping her understand that she is not really separated from her loved ones by death. Most importantly for Brieze at that time, she also comes to understand that she can be the vehicle for others to arrive into the Earth realm. It also helps her see that the relationships she engages in are more important than she realised and everyone around her is there to love her, and for her to love.

There are times in one’s life where an understanding of our Higher Condition can make all the difference, when making choices to follow our Soul’s purpose. Without that understanding we may get lost in negative aspects of our lower ego and lose our direction.This is not a new concept in the esoteric teachings of the world, which is to understand the karmic cycle of re-incarnation and its purpose in transcending the base animal life towards a higher conscious state.The pages of history hold unexpected clues to these mortal and spiritual relationships, for it is all in our evolution, where we have come from. What is yet to be written, the future, is no less difficult. All we have to do is let our experience, imagination and conscious choices take us there. Each of the stories present different ways in which Brieze discovers a past, or future, incarnation, which helps her to understand herself more. The experiences come at significant times of change in her life – motherhood, grand-motherhood, embarking on a career later in life and finally, at the time of contemplation of her mortality, at the end of her life.

last-lot-jan-30-0471 ‘HERSTORIA’ as reviewed by John Lehman, writer, poet and book reviewer from Wisconsin, USA.

In the final pages of her book, author Wendy Salter states, “To believe in the eternal spirit, therefore, we have then to embark on the eternal search for that place from whence we have come and to where we are going.” That’s exactly what Brieze the narrator/protagonist of this four-story novel does. Through each of these episodes in different places and different times she (and we) comes to realize a wonderful connectedness with loved ones past, present and future. I appreciated the overview of each part before “Story One” it helps the reader grasp the scope of the book and anticipate each of its different parts. My favorite was the contemporary encounter of the third section, but I also liked the first; my wife found the second most inspiring — Brieze travels back to spend time with Native American’s in the early 1600s.

But each of the four stories has an important underlying meaning: (the first) things have greater meaning than they initially appear to have; (the second story) nature is part of us and we regain ourselves by losing ourselves in it; (third) a partner in life helps us remember; (and fourth) the future —  who we will become —  shapes the present just as the past has. But the whole of this book is more than the sum of its parts.

There is a wonderful metaphor that runs throughout ‘Herstoria’. The first episode when Brieze slips into the Otherworld is a bit like reading an old fashioned fairy tale of a child lost in the woods (“The oak trees here were grand old things, with bulging midriffs and knotted biceps and obscure faces in the bark that grimaced and leered.”) except this is a Jungian world of archetypes and the surprise interpretation, sprung on her husband at the end, is that she wants to have children. The metaphor is that life is like stories, like a book, in which we discover meaning. Here Brieze describes the architecture professor John Tate: “He would shed the dust of time that moved this old tome and make its presence known to her. And she could resist its invitation to take it off the shelf and sit down with it, in intimate union, no more than she could resist the turning of the Earth. She would lift its cover, slowly and carefully and watch it reveal its contents, as God may reveal His mysteries to the world.”

This book is well written. The transitions to different time periods are flawless and Salter’s grasp of historic detail gives each account real credibility. There is a temporary change of point of view in the first part developing the French revolutionary’s family more quickly, that is a little distracting and I found the second story more reflective with fewer scenes of character interaction that would have made it more dramatic. This is quickly rectified with the dynamics of the encounters between Brieze and the deaf man in the third story. The last section is a brief, (somewhat expository-heavy) glimpse into the crystal ball of the distant future. But what I enjoyed most about this book is that we, as readers, are acknowledged to be searchers. When the book is over and Brieze’s journey is complete, we are well on a trail of discovery about our own lives.

'Green Stones'

‘GREEN STONES’ – my second book, is a story of past-life karma.

Sometimes, what we know from our present life doesn’t answer a strange and difficult experience we may have. It may be time to visit the past. Following on from Wendy Salter’s first book, ‘Herstoria’, this book takes the subject of past-lives deeper into the karma brought forward from a past-life into the present.

‘GREEN STONES’ is set in the beautiful sun-drenched turquoise Aegean Sea around Turkey and delves into the surfacing past-life of Louise, an English woman who finds her connection to a famous pirate, Captain Oruc. How can her present life, set in 2004, reconnect to Captain Oruc back in 1503, and a city renown for one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World – Halicarnassus, now known as Bodrum? There, St Peter’s Castle, the last stronghold of the Knights of St John of Jerusalem, holds an unexpected secret.

This is a heart-rending story of hatred, betrayal and intrigue, survival, passion and pain, but it is love that endures. It is based on a true story.

Alongside the fiction and the fact, the author makes a study of an ancient, mysterious esoteric wisdom, which is resurfacing at this time in a spiritual understanding of re-incarnation and karma. When our lives unfold, not in a pre-ordered and simplistic fashion, but in a surprising and challenging way, we can find purpose and fulfillment through an understanding of re-incarnation and the opportunities it offers. Unbelievers of the transmigration of the soul see the human existence as just a procreation of the species, but a simple question must expand the mind into other possibilities – For what purpose? Thousands upon thousands of testimonies lend evidence to the idea that we return to incarnation many times. Is it too preposterous to imagine that we can accumulate knowledge from life-time to life-time, and through experience gain a wisdom that enlarges our existence into a fully conscious, evolved being?

'Persian Carpet'

‘PERSIAN CARPET’ – my third book, is a story beyond Death’s Door.

Have you ever wondered what lies beyond Death’s Door?  In Wendy Salter’s third book, she takes a diversion from past-lives into the mysterious World of Spirit, between incarnations.

‘PERSIAN CARPET’ – The protagonist, Beatrice, thinks she knows where she is going, but she didn’t know the outcome of her surprising journey into Old Persia and beyond. She meets not just one companion, Ishaq, but a second, a guide called Pir, and together they explore this different dimension of the living universe. Just as the old Persian Carpets earned a reputation for ‘flying’ in Old Persia, Beatrice finds a Persian Carpet that can take her beyond her wildest dreams. The outcome of this journey leaves Beatrice with a dilemma.

In this story, Beatrice is not just the story-teller but the explorer in a world not too dissimilar to our own, while presenting some significant differences as her free-consciousness is less restricted by space-time. In her transition from Earth-Time to Spirit-Time, the journey seems common-place at first, with familiar modes of transport, but she crosses the Rainbow Bridge and from thereon she knows she has arrived in a very different place. Conversations reveal some enigmas of the spirit-world, especially when they involve the numerous characters she meets, who each have their own story to tell. Beatrice goes through ‘death’s door’ consciously and with purpose, as she has undertaken a mission to investigate the possibilities and locations of numerous kinds of ‘portals’. The blending of history, mythology, philosophy and speculation contrive to expose the creative abilities of the conscious mind, set free in an environment of imagination we may call an alter-reality. Having gained important insights, Beatrice then has a choice, armed with a new understanding of herself – what to do next.


'Persian Carpet'

Coming soon – Book four will follow Beatrice’s decision to continue and in so-doing she will endeavour to discover long-lost ancient history that could explain the early Path of Humanity, where the Path divided, and the potential it now has to dream-up its own future. As an increasing number of people open their minds and retrieve their lost memories of who they truly are, commonly known as ‘waking-up’, the barrier of disbelief we have constructed around us will dissolve to reveal – what?
