The Internet's natal charts

This article presents the history related to the birth of the internet, outlining the two key dates and times that may be used for the natal chart of the internet.

The roots of the Internet

The Internet represents nowadays an excellent communication medium, a huge database of information, a virtual reality, it really become something one can’t live without.

However, from an astrological point of view, there are no studies and articles, at least none that I am aware of. (I would very much appreciate if the reader can give any references on this - see the contact page)

There are two dates and times in the history of the internet that represent true milestones and could represent what every astrologer needs in order to practice his craft: the natal chart of the internet.

The first internet connection

On July 3, 1969, it was announced that the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) will become the first station in a nationwide computer network which, for the first time, will link together computers of different makes and using different machine languages into one time-sharing system. Professor Leonard Kleinrock was heading this project therefore he is considered the father of the Internet

The first Node connected to the network was UCLA's on September 2, 1969. This is when the first two computers were connected over what was to become the Internet.

From a personal communication with Professor Leonard Kleinrock, I learned that it was mid-morning Pacific Time; he estimated it to about 10:00 am.

This is the moment that marks the physical birth of the Internet.

September 2, 1969, approx. 10:00 am PDT, Los Angeles, CA

Later, on October 1, Node 2 was connected at the Stanford Research Institute (SRI), to be followed by the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB) on November 1 and the University of Utah in December. But these are not so important dates,

The sending of the first message

The second key date in the Internet history is October 29, 1969. That is the day when the first
Message between to host computers attached to the Internet was sent.

Detailed information on this day from the email received from Professor Leonard Kleinrock:
“The setup was as follows.  At UCLA we had the first network switch (which was called an Interface Message Processor, or IMP) and we had our time-shared computer host, which was an SDS Sigma 7.  (It was the connection between those two machines that occurred on Sept 2, 1969 and I like to say that the infant Internet took its first breath of life that day).  At Stanford Research Institute (SRI), which is about 450 miles north of UCLA in Los Angeles, we had the second installation. It, too, had an IMP (IMP number 2) and a Host computer (an SDS 940 computer).  In addition, the first long distance high-speed link of the Internet connected UCLA to SRI. What we did was to send a message from my host computer at UCLA to the host computer at SRI.  As you may know, that first message was simply, "Lo", a most prophetic message.  That first message was sent at exactly 10:20 pm Pacific time.”

October 29, 1969, 10:20 pm PST, Los Angeles, CA
