Increase of Supernova and the Spread of Falun Dafa

In March 1999, Mr. Li Hongzhi said, 'The human society in the future will go through tremendous changes; many special phenomena will be displayed in the cosmos. Modern science has already discovered continuous formation of new celestial bodies and explosion of old ones. Now newspapers also have been reporting that new galaxies appear where none existed before, and that many ancient celestial bodies are decomposing, with many new ones emerging. This is happening in very far and remote cosmic bodies. Slowly it’s getting closer and closer to the dimension that’s visible to our human flesh eyes. These scenes will appear.'

A survey on the observation of Supernova over recent years has been carried out and the results of our analyses are presented in this article.

Supernova is a phenomenon in which an extremely large amount of energy is released in a very short period of time during the explosion of a star. The Supernova known as 1987A is a good example. Its brightness increased so much and so quickly that it became visible to the naked eye within only a few hours. It remained bright in the sky for several months and then became dim.

1. Data Source

The data presented here were obtained from the Harvard University website ( This site lists all Supernovas observed since 1885, in addition to several earlier observations dating back as far as the year 1006.

2. Better Telescopes or a Change of Cosmic Climate?

Looking at Figure 2, we see a dramatic increase in the number of Supernova observed between 1984 and 2000. Some people might suggest that this increase could be explained by improvements in telescope technology, leading to more sensitive equipment observing a larger number of Supernova. If this were the case, one would expect the percentage of high intensity Supernova observed to significantly decline over the same period, since the additional observations recorded by more sensitive telescopes would record weaker Supernova than had previously been detectable. This is not the case, however, as explained below.

The Harvard University website referenced above lists the “Intensity Index” of each Supernova. The smaller the Intensity Index, the stronger the Supernova. We have used Intensity Index 20 as the threshold in our statistics, disregarding the very weak ones (Intensity Index above 20).

Figure 1 shows the percentage of high intensity Supernova (Intensity Index 18 and below) among all observed (Intensity Index < 20). Figure 2 shows the total number of Supernova observed (Intensity Index < 20) each year. The graph shows that the percentage of strong Supernova fluctuates from year to year, showing no clear major trend. There was a decline from 1987 to 1989, however the fluctuations in the percentage in other years show no major trend up or down. Accordingly, with no significant downward trend in the percentage of high intensity Supernova, we believe that the increase in Supernova observations is not simply a result of improvements in telescope technology over the same period. The evidence seems to indicate a drastic increase in the actual number of Supernova occurrences.

Fig. 1 The percentage of high intensity Supernova (Intensity Index 18 and below) among all observed (Intensity Index < 20) from year 1984-1999.

In Fig. 2, it is evident that the total number of Supernova observed drastically increased in 1992 and 1999. As discussed above, this is due to a corresponding increase in the number of Supernova occurrences (rather than improvements in our ability to detect them).

Some other significant events occurred in those years. Falun Dafa was first introduced to the public in 1992, and Jiang Zemin’s government began it’s crackdown against Falun Dafa in 1999. Could this be just coincidence?

The Chinese people have believed in astrology since ancient times. It is believed that there is a correlation between astronomical changes and incidents occurring on the earth.

Although these Supernova occurred very far away from the earth, deep in the Universe, they can be detected by us relatively quickly since the speed of light is not constant outside of our solar system. Light can, in fact, travel much faster than many scientists now believe. When big changes occur in the universe, corresponding astrological changes will occur as well as changes appearing on the earth. They appear as “coincidences” to humans, but in fact are simply a reflection of changes in the Cosmic Climate.
