2012. Myth, Conspiracy, or Warning?



Remember how I mentioned in previous posts that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012? Well, it seems that there is more than adequate information that would lead to the belief that the end of the world (at least as far as we currently know it) is eminent in 2012. As far as I can prescribe, the Second Coming should be just around the corner.

As dramatic as all of this sounds, there are some things that are for sure in this equation.

First, as you may already be aware, the Mayan Calendar supposedly ends on December 21, 2012. Although, this can be debated by some who are scientists involved in the Mayan calendar research. Those who debate this seemingly "end of days" "doomsday" scenario believe that the Mayan calendar actually only goes until October 28, 2011, at least one full year before the 2012 predicted "end of days".

"The October 28, 2011 end date can however be rationally understood. It has also been verified by several predictions, most recently my own that an economic collapse would set in and when it would do so: Regardless of what forms such a [financial] collapse may take it seems that the best bet is for it to occur close to the time that the Fifth NIGHT begins, in November 2007 [strictly speaking the 19th] (The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness, page 233). In accordance with this prediction economists now agree that it began in December of 2007, see Figure 1)...

It affects not only science, but also how we understand religious prophecies, which often include references to the Tree of Life. Hence, for instance the Book of Revelation refers to this and it seems to be returning to our awareness in the nick of time...

The understanding of Mayan time as quantized also provides a meaningful way of looking at the so-called end date where it is not even potentially a preset end of the world. (This is why no one embracing the October 28, 2011 date has fallen to claim that it is a preset end of the world). The end date simply reflects the point in time when the Cosmic Tree of Life attains its highest quantum state...

What the end date does mean however is that on October 28, 2011 the shifts between energies will come to an end and it is thus no wonder that many intuitively sense that the year that follow upon this, 2012, is very special. The processes that have been driving cosmic evolution until now will no longer be operating and after some time for things to settle the human beings will be left to create evolution themselves...

on November 8, 2009 we may however expect that the meltdown intensifies and the US dollar collapses and with it the established monetary system in the world. Many things may trigger such an event, but it is important to understand that whatever triggers it, and this may be some kind of political event, it is the energy of this night that will bring it about...

It has much in common with the difficult birth scenario for the “New Jerusalem” as this is presented in the Book of Revelation. As this book points out this is however not a world for everyone and it is a scenario that almost certainly will require spiritual strength and integrity to endure. I do not want to add any religious overtones to this discussion, but it seems clear that everyone who is aspiring to enter this new world must sincerely seek the truth and avoid simplistic explanations."

If you disregard the Mayan calendar, here is another piece of scientific evidence about the world experience of the "end-of-days" being sometime between 2011 and 2012. As you probably have already heard or read, there is supposedly supposed to be a huge solar flare around the Winter of 2012.

"The last solar cycle was at its maximum in 2001. Each active solar cycle has a period when the flares are strongest, usually happening near the solar equator, called the "solar maximum." This is significant because the next "solar maximum" event will coincide with December 21, 2012...

Solar flares are pieces of the sun which leap into space, discharging radiation and strong electrical currents that travel outward into space. They often fall back to the surface of the Sun. Sometimes, a very strong flare, called a Coronal Mass Ejection (CME), actually leaves the Sun and this deadly mass shoots out from the Sun towards the planets like a bullet. Usually these CME's don't hit anything but occasionally they hit a planet like Earth. Some believe a powerful CME once hit Mars...

In 1989 a flare hit the North American continent and fried electric lines, zapped power grids in the US and Canada, and created large power blackouts. Flares can also effect our moods and physical health. In theory, a large flare impacting the Earth could zap the ionosphere (there goes all the satellites, cellphones, GPS...) and irradiate the surface, killing every living organism that it touched...

Our solar system is part of a huge disc shaped collection of stars and planets called the Milky Way. We're located somewhere on the edge of the disc, slightly on top of the narrow disc. But very soon we'll be moving to the bottom of the disc. This change, from top to bottom, begins on December 21, 2012...

By some amazing coincidence, not only will we be intersecting with the Galactic Equator, but we will be doing this precisely aligned with the center of the Galaxy where there is maximum mass! More mass means more gravity. More gravity means more influence from those barycenters in our Sun. That means exponential increases in solar disruptions -- all coinciding on the same day! Whew!...

Over the last decade, I have written a variety of stories about such things as underground cities and government actions that could only make sense if there were no future. I cannot help but think that maybe they, like the Mayans, know about these things. I'd specifically like to suggest that readers take another look at the underground complex at Yamantau that the Russians are building. Could this be a haven for surviving a solar blast? And the "doomsday seed bank" that's being filled deep inside an Arctic island. And what about past events? Did the Hopi go underground to survive a similar event thousands of years earlier? Should we be going underground also?"

Third in line for the 2012 debate is the nuclear situation that is a growing challenge with North Korea.

"Pyongyang has announced it seeks to become a “powerful nation” by 2012, the 100th anniversary of Kim Il-sung’s birth. The goal may reflect achieving formal recognition as a nuclear weapons state...

North Korea ’s refusal to engage in dialogue with the US, South Korea, and Japan is another indicator Pyongyang is playing a new game...

Since the beginning of 2009, however, North Korea has engaged in a series of provocations against the US , South Korea , and Japan without allowing any time for diplomatic outreach. It is evident that Pyongyang is now intent on achieving strategic technological achievements rather than gaining tactical negotiating leverage. As such, North Korea is likely to continue additional missile and nuclear activity during 2009 impervious to naïve initiatives such as offering a senior-level presidential envoy for bilateral discussion."
- Heritage Foundation

"For the North Koreans 2012 is not about the London Olympics.
I asked the tour guide what does 2012 mean? She said "We have a goal that North Korea will become a strong and prosperous country in 2012, which will also be Kim Il Sung's 100 years anniversary".

"The Korean Ministry of Information and Communication announced yesterday that Korea’s National Assembly has passed a special act to convert the country to digital broadcasting by the end of 2012."
- Radio Netherlands Worldwide

"...it now appears that North Korea’s tallest building will be completed by 2012."
- North Korean Economy Watch

As a bonus piece of information (if you can call it a bonus), South Korea has plans to complete its missile defense system by 2012.

"South Korea plans to deploy a second Aegis destroyer and a third for operational use in 2010 and 2012, according to its navy.

Last year, South Korea began taking delivery of U.S.-made Patriot missiles to replace its aging Nike ground-to-air missiles and better cope with North Korean missile threats.

Seoul had announced a plan to purchase 48 Patriots by this year, setting 2010 as a target for them to be operational."

So, as bleak of an outcome as this post protests, you may desire to prepare for the future and live in the moment as the impending date(s) emerge before us. What we have valued in the past, being material in nature, may clearly change in drastic manor in the not-so-distant future.

It is so funny to me, that I was thinking about this same subject today. That is how I found you. I was wondering about what 2012 meant to the North Koreans. Hi. Very interesting blog.

Oh, and one more funny thing for you. We are watching Valkyrie for the first time tonight. Ironic.

It's all getting very interesting. Isn't it?
