Did a coronal mass ejection cause the Chile earthquake?

Van’s Hardware Journal points out that the 2010 Chile earthquake was preceded by a Coronal mass ejection.
Space.com’s FAQ states “The question of a solar disturbance/magnetic field change related to earthquakes has been thoroughly investigated and found to be unproven,” and cites the conclusions of a 1996 conference on the subject.
However, Russian and Chinese scientists continue to study the possibility of a connection.
As you’ve probably already heard, this earthquake altered the axis of the earth. So, if it IS true that this earthquake was caused by the sun (and I’m not saying that it was), that means that the sun actually caused a change in the earth’s axis.

(My noise art piece “Thirst for Annihilation” from my album Return to the Wasteland was created using NASA’s recording of radio interference caused by sunspots, inspired by Negarestani’s work and named after a book, which I have not read, by his collaborator Nick Land)
More on Ad’ieh from Reza
Reza Negarestani was kind enough to send some more info about Ad’ieh, an ancient Arabic hypersigil system (most commonly practiced now in the form of chain letters, but also the key to the plot of the film Ringu).
I was skimming through technoccult archive and read your post on Ad ieh; here is the Farsi / Arabic word if you are interested:
In Farsi the practice is called Ad?ieh Nevisi (Nevisi: writing)
Sometimes, Ad?ieh is called Khabnameh.
I guess my English spelling of the word is not correct; but maybe you can find it in Arabic / Farsi sites if you have got Arabic font installed on your machine.
There is also another brief reference to Ad?ieh / Khabnameh on my friend?s blog (Esmail Yazdanpour) but the text is in Farsi … you can read his comment under my post at hyperstition; he thinks certain types of commercial spams follow the same hyperstitional pattern of Ad?ieh Nevisi (read the examples in English):
There is a chapter on Ad?ieh in Ibn Asir?s History of Islam.
Thanks for the info. For the record, I wasn’t trying to call you a
liar or anything, but I try to take everything I read on Hyperstition
with some… unbelief.
Thank you … lol … no, i just thought you might be interested in more info (in connection with Hypersigil); i’ll try to find if there is an english text out there on the subject because there should be some books. btw, the unbelief-based reading is the apex of hyperstition. Hope you are doing fine.
Reza Negarestani explains Ad’ieh
While poking around the Hyperstition archives looking for something else, I’ve found Reza explaining an
Islamic Middle Eastern hypersigil technique (which also happens to be the inspiration for the Japanese novel and film Ringu).
Update: I haven’t found any other reference to this technique… Did Reza make this up? Anyway, could be an effective for anyone willing to mess with such a potentially damaging technique.
Update: Reza provides more info here.

Jason Lubyk of NWD and Reza Negarestani of Hyperstition are featured in Kenji Siratori’s new experimental fiction anthology.
Hyperstition is a new blog by Reza Negarestani, K-Punk, and a bunch of other people (and hosted by William Blaze) that merits a little more introduction. Hyperstitions are, in short, “fictions that make themselves real.”
K-Punk recommends Lemurian Time War and this article as an introduction to Hyperstion:
The situation is closer to the modern phenomenon of hype than to religious belief as we?d ordinarily think about it. Hype actually makes things happen, and uses belief as a positive power. Just because it?s not ?real? now, doesn?t mean it won?t be real at some point in the future. And once it?s real, in a sense, it?s always been.”
Sounds very much like Grant Morrison’s idea of the hypersigil, especially when he talks about emergence.
