That reminds me of the tsunami mirage in Portugal several years ago, it could be seen in the south during the summer, I was at the beach at that time, I remember seeing everybody fleeing from there, people getting in their cars and trying to escape...

Anyway, I got the beach practically just for myself and a few other people, I'd estimate the numbers to be near 5-6 after the mirage was spotted.

If you google "mirages", you'll find that they are quite common in Finland and the East Coast of Japan. Just in case you can afford to go there and wait to see one. On other sites, people are speculating about portals to another dimension. There is an old Japanese myth about a floating heavenly bridge with people on it that dates to about 14,000 yrs ago. My question is; Where was a bridge built that long ago?? Mirage or portal???

Look have found this web page.... It's last line is thus: "It is through this geodesic crystalline matrix than in a not too distant future the cities of light, that are suspended waiting for the dimensional change of our beloved Gaia, will be anchored."
