What's the deal with the end of the world 2012 prediction?
Is your first reaction to dismiss it as nonsense? This isn't the first "the end of the world" prediction, or catastrophic prediction, like Y2K, bonking us over the head.
As humans, our lives can get heavy with news of worldly information, especially negative information. Though we're a very smart bunch of big-brained people, when you compile all this news and information, the build-up of the end of the world paranoia and fear can add up to overwhelming proportions.
In addition, some of us gain pleasure from fanatical information that creates a big buzz and sends a frenzy of fear and sometimes sheer panic within the collective minds of huge populations of normally sane, relatively positive people. It is easy to see that the end of the world 2012 prediction theory has very strong potential for major reactive thinking.
Reacting to ideas or beliefs, whether good or bad, have powerful consequences.
It's been scientifically proven: When a belief is fortified with strong emotion, incredible results occur. For example, under strong emotional convincing, an ice-cube will burn skin, the mind will actually produce a burn on the skin. These types of experiences have been documented over and over again.
The question that needs answering is how do we control this type of information? Potentially the end of the world 2012 theory can cause some serious damage, like a financial recession where everyone tightens up their purse strings thus magnifying the idea that a lack of money is looming like an unstoppable black cloud of limitation, when most of us instinctively know that wealth and prosperity surround us in every form, at all times.
Beliefs and expectations are powerful.
The images of the 2012 end of the world nightmare are very convincing: The earth opening up and swallowing entire cities: The climate suddenly exploding into an evil storm of darkness and all other visions of absolute destruction. And the reasons for this destruction seem to be focused on us, as if we all missed the boat and lived so sinfully that god or nature has made some conscious choice to viciously end everything, to cleanse and clarify our "sinful" lifestyles and end the world.
On the other hand, some of us take a totally different view.
For example, let's consider the fundamental law of cause and effect. Is it not absolutely true that for every action there is an equal reaction? This can be understood as a perfect law. You could reasonably say that "evil" does not exist because everything that happens is a perfect reflection of simple laws of nature. In other words, if something happens it must therefore be natural or it couldn't possibly happen.
Does a frog desire to be a famous opera singer? We could all agree that would be, for lack of a better word, "evil." If you struck a C-chord on a perfectly tuned musical instrument and the sound came out as an F-chord, would the hairs on the back of your neck not stand up?
Of course the above scenarios could never happen because the natural world would not survive for more than an instant if fundamental laws of the universe behaved so unlawfully. Everything from the slightest mathematical formula would collapse in a micro-second and life would cease to exist faster than the blink of an eye.
Will the end of the world 2012 happen...?
Will the world end next Tuesday?
Anything is possible.
