The historical narrative contains many intriguing coincidences.
Gunnar Heinsohn has identified 700 phantom years in the history of the first millennium.
Working backwards through the mainstream historical narrative we arrive at The Heinsohn Horizon in the 930s where the mainstream narrative falls into The Academic Abyss and degenerates into fiction, fantasy and fabrication for a period of 700 [phantom] years.
The Heinsohn Horizon: The Academic Abyss
J H L Lawler observed that all major empires rise and collapse every 700 years and that there is a complete collapse of civilization every 1400 years.
There is a pattern of the rise an fall of empires, of whole civilizations, which happens with approximately a 700-year repeat cycle.
The cycles alternate with monolithic empires followed by fragmentary empires.
There is a complete collapse of civilization each 1400 years, so this could be called a 1400-year cycle.
But all major empires rise and collapse every 700 years in synchronism.
Patterns for Prediction of Future Events

Unsurprisingly, there is theoretical support for a [roughly] 1,400 year Lawler Event cycle.
The final piece of the puzzle is calculated in Excel by extending the orbital period trend line out to 122 AU to discover the heliosphere orbital period of 1,350 years.
In the field of climate the Indian Summer Monsoon Variability has a significant periodicity at 1,3500 years.
Returning to Gerard Bond’s 1997 study of the North Atlantic we find that the father of the Bond Event actually encountered the 1,350 year cycle.
In fact, the 1,350 year cycle was “head and shoulders” above the other two cyclical peaks [at 4,670 and 1,800 years] in the “Confidence Level F Test” performed by Gerard Bond.
The “excess chloride” record from the Greenland GISP2 Ice Core provides two startling outlier observations that echo the underlying 700 year rhythm of the Lawler Events.
The first outlier date of 953 AD suggests the Heinsohn Horizon was a Lawler Event that was followed by another Lawler Event [694 years later] in 1647 AD.
Excess chloride periodicities do not, however, appear to reflect just H2SO4-induced volatilization of HCl as was suggested from a comparison of their trends but perhaps also reflect marine chloride produced under other conditions conducive to fractionation of sea-salt aerosols (e.g., evaporation, decrease in storminess).

“Excess chloride” signals are subject to interpretation but for outliers it seems most likely that the chloride signal is associated with volcanism and/or oceanic volcanism.
Methyl chloride (CH3Cl) is a naturally occurring ozone-depleting gas with a complex biogeochemical cycle involving tropical vegetation, soils, biomass burning and the oceans.
Although the underlying cause is not known, ice core CH3Cl variability over the last two millennia suggests a positive relationship between atmospheric CH3Cl and global mean temperature that has not been observed before.

Both Na+ and Cl- mainly derive from sea salt, but Na+ also has other sources such as mineral dust.
The concentrations of Na+ and Cl- vary strongly across the abrupt climatic shifts in the glacial period (the so-called D-O events) with approximately five times higher concentrations during the colder periods.
Na+ and Cl- is released from freezing sea water when sea ice forms, and the concentration variations are thought to be a result of changes in sea ice extent in the North Atlantic combined with a change in the atmospheric circulation pattern, but the interpretation is not straightforward.

Most of the sodium and chloride ion concentrations come from the ocean in the form of sea salt (NaCl).
Sodium also has a terrestrial dust source but this only contributes a minute percentage in this core.
Chlorine can be given off by volcanic eruptions in the form of hydrochloric acid (Hcl).

This volcanic interpretation is supported by the Eclipse Icefield [Yukon, Canada] where the outlier chloride signal has been associated with the 1912 eruption of Katmai.
Of special note is the 1912 signal we have identified as the June 1912 eruption of Katmai, Alaska, which is the largest nss Cl- residual in our record by an order of magnitude.

Mount Katmai is a large stratovolcano (composite volcano) on the Alaska Peninsula in southern Alaska, located within Katmai National Park and Preserve.
It is about 6.3 miles (10 km) in diameter with a central lake-filled caldera about 3 by 2 mi (4.5 by 3 km) in area, formed during the Novarupta eruption of 1912.
The caldera rim reaches a maximum elevation of 6,716 feet (2,047 m).
In 1975 the surface of the crater lake was at an elevation of about 4,220 feet (1,286 m), and the estimated elevation of the caldera floor is about 3,400 ft (1,040 m).
Little is known about the historical activity of Katmai volcano before the great 1912 eruption.
However, the 1912 “excess chloride” signal in the Greenland GISP2 Ice Core is dwarfed by the 953 AD and 1647 AD Lawler Event signals.
Therefore, the 953 AD and 1647 AD Lawler Events were either very close to Greenland or significantly larger than the VEI 6 eruptions on the Alaska Peninsula in 1912.
Novarupta is a new volcano that was created in 1912, located on the Alaska Peninsula in Katmai National Park and Preserve, about 290 miles (470 km) southwest of Anchorage.
Formed during the largest volcanic eruption of the 20th century, Novarupta released 30 times the volume of magma of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
The eruption of Novarupta within the Aleutian Range began on June 6, 1912, and culminated in a series of violent eruptions from the original Novarupta volcano.
Rated a 6 on the Volcanic Explosivity Index, the 60-hour-long eruption expelled 13 to 15 cubic kilometers (3.1 to 3.6 cu mi) of ash, 30 times as much as the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens.
The erupted magma of rhyolitic, dacitic, and andesitic composition resulted in more than 17 cubic kilometers (4.1 cu mi) of air fall tuff and approximately 11 cubic kilometers (2.6 cu mi) of pyroclastic ash-flow tuff.
During the 20th century, only the 1991 eruption of Mt. Pinatubo in the Philippines was of a similar magnitude; Pinatubo ejected 11 cubic kilometers (2.6 cu mi) of tephra.
At least two larger eruptions occurred in the 19th century: the 1815 eruption of Tambora (150 km3 (36.0 cu mi) of tephra) and the 1883 eruption of Indonesia’s Krakatoa (20 km3 (4.8 cu mi) of tephra).
Novarupta occurred about 2.5 miles from the peak of volcanic Mount Katmai and 4,000 feet below the post-eruption summit of Mount Katmai.
During the eruption a large quantity of magma was removed from underneath the Mount Katmai area, resulting in the formation of a 2-kilometer (1.2 mi) wide, funnel-shaped vent and the collapse of Mount Katmai’s summit, creating a 600-meter (2,000 ft) deep, 3 by 4 km (1.9 by 2.5 mi) caldera.
The eruption ended with the extrusion of a lava dome of rhyolite that plugged the vent.
The 295-foot (90 m) high and 1,180-foot (360 m) wide dome and the caldera it created form what is now referred to as Novarupta.
Furthermore, it is interesting to note that the 1912 AD “excess chloride” signal originates from a stratovolcano that is very close to the Pacific Pivot Point in Alaska.
Therefore, it’s possible that Lawler Events are also Earth Inflation Events.
