外文标题：Japan volcano erupts, several injured, aircraft diverted
TOKYO: A volcano in central Japan erupted on Saturday injuring at least eight people and forced aircraft to divert flying routes to void the billowing ash cloud.
The meteorological agency said Mt. Ontake, which straddles Nagano and Gifu prefectures, erupted at around 11:53am (0253 GMT), sending smoke down the mountain's south slope for more than three kms (1.9 miles).
"Seven people were lightly injured and one person suffered serious injuries as a result of the eruption," Makoto Hasegawa of the Nagano prefecture fire department told Reuters.
The eruption is still taking place, he said.
"Airplanes are diverting their flying routes to avoid the ash cloud," said Hasegawa.
NHK public broadcaster showed footage of the mountain sending thick, grey smoke into the air.
Mt. Ontake is located some 200 km (125 miles) west of Tokyo. No nuclear power plants are located nearby.
When too many bombs explode across the planet, when a violent consciousness spreads throughout the world over an extended period of time, these vibrations seep deep into the Earth. Here they continue to build up until they cannot be contained any longer. Then the Mother Earth has to release these pressures and tensions and we should expect to experience some earthquakes and volcanic eruptions etc. A PEACEFUL CONSCIOUSNESS CREATES A PEACEFUL WORLD.

Is it your sentiments? or got any scientific proof.

Do you have scientific explanation for these theories? Or is it just a figment of imagination?
anthony.prolad replies to Arun Perti
Take a big solid ball, strike one point hard, and notice how the vibration passes through the ball. Therefore the impact has an effect even deep inside the ball. Scientists are beginning to see that consciousness is able to affect matter.
