So, is the world going to end in 2012 and also, why this particular date?
An ancient civilization called The Maya were very advanced when it came to the study of time. They kept several very accurate calendars, including one called The Long Count which began over 5000 years ago and ends on December 21st 2012. Now just because their calendar ends on that date, doesn't actually mean that the world is going to end in 2012, but interestingly The Mayans are not the only indicators of 2012 being a pivotal year for human civilization.
The Incas, The Hopi, The Aztecs and The Zulu's amongst others, all point to this timeframe, and specifically 2012, as being an 'end of an age'. Also, many psychics and remote viewers also believe that we are at a crucial crossroads in human evolution - indeed some remote viewers say that they cannot 'see' past 2012, almost as if they hit a brick wall!
There are others who believe that rather than the world ending in 2012, human beings will evolve into a much more advanced, spiritual race and that true reality itself will be revealed and that the mystery of time will also be unlocked. They believe we will all wake up to the knowledge that we are spiritual beings having a physical experience on Earth, and that what we call dying is nothing more than waking up after a night-time of sleep and dreams. I rather like the sound of this theory!
The film 2012, mixed a little bit of truth and a lot of spectacular nonsense, and brought the idea of the Mayan Calendar and 2012 into the mainstream. NASA too has mentioned that they expect major sun storm activity to peak in 2012, causing possible electro-magnetic interference on Earth which could have devastating consequences to the electric grid and throw Western civilization back a few centuries.
Interestingly, the Sun was worshiped by all ancient civilizations including the Maya, so perhaps we should be prepared for a solar event?
2012 will probably come and go just like any other year. The facts are though, that there are many indications pointing to 2012 as being a very significant year for all of us here on Earth. Whether this means the world is going to end in 2012, or that we as a species advance to a more spiritual existence, is a subject of immense speculation and interest. Me? I'll keep an open mind and will continue to watch events unfold as we head ever nearer that key date.
