Is the world going to end in a blaze of glory? No. Is it going to usher in a new age of enlightenment? If you give all your money away to me...Yes!

My hypothesis is this:

In Mayan civilization and many others, the day you were born was a big thing. It decided your career, and your mission on the earth. A few poor saps got calendar duty, they realized that if it was in a circular shape, it would come to an end and they could spend the rest of their lives, drinking and smoking the local weed while watching a game of headball. They made it so. Intricate and mystical that nobody would question them.

Seriously! If your job was to write out a calendar until the day you die... what would you do?

This is my thought on the whole thing. Also, I will be glad to hold onto your money while you prepare for the end. There is a small restocking fee for your dignity...

You scoff at Mayan myth, yet accept other myths and supernatural things as reality. Why make the distinction?

Actually I think the mayans were on to something. What most people think it is... Is wrong. Not saying I have inside info, just a hunch. However, if you believe in something and can't make light of it and joke about it, you are too serious and need to loosen up. I make light of meditation, reiki, lucid dreaming and other so called "supernatural" things all the time.
It is called a sense of humor and there is nothing supernatural, mystical, or fairy tale about it. Lighten up and enjoy life. Quit looking for reasons to attack people. When all else fails... Remember goozfrabba(sp?).

Live. Laugh. Love. Repeat.

Mayan calender
Here's one of the "secrets" about the Maya and their calendar. The calendar was handed down to the Maya by an older (pre-Maya) civilization called the Olmecs (much like the Pyramids are actually over 12,000 years old; the Egyptians simply inherited the structures, but that's another thread).

We give credit to the Maya because they were the civilization that we found with the calendar. However, they (the Maya) were MUCH too primitive to have made such a calendar.

Now for my take on the calendar...
At roughly 11:11 am eastern time Friday, December 21st, 2012, the Earth will supposedly cross a galactic plane that it crosses only once every 25,000 years or so. First of all, if this is something that happens every 25,000 years (and the Earth is 4.5 billion years old) it is safe to say that the Earth has survived this moment MANY times before (so no doomsday here folks).

However, this is modern man's first time witnessing this event. Some say this is the day of judgement, the "end times", the "great awakening" of man kind. Personally, I think this is the greatest non-event that is yet to happen.

With that said, I do believe quite a few of our leaders on this planet are concerned about how accurate this calendar is. They also seem concerned about the number of other ancient civilizations that point to the exact same date (ancient Chinese and Egyptians are a few others that point to this date). I'm really not sure what to make of it all.

Some of what I've read...
It seems that some see this day as the day Earth actually moves into another dimension of reality (I've read that "4th density" seems to be tossed around a bit). I personally don't believe such a thing will happen, but it is rather interesting when one begins to understand the concept.

Basically, our universe has many different dimensions (or densities) of reality (which explains ghost sightings and such). Because our planet moves, within a moving solar system, that is within a moving spiral galaxy, our "density" is not constant. Consciousness is where this "shift" allegedly takes place. Think of it like this.

You are now seeing dead relatives. You can fly. You can teleport. Then you wake up and realize it was all a dream. However, when you were experiencing the dream, all those weird abilities were perfectly natural/normal to you (because you were in a different conscious state). This is (I guess) how a shift in consciousness works. No one will be able to "feel" the difference. No one will notice it either. It will just happen, and we will live by the new rules as if nothing happened. Remember, when we shift consciousness in our dreams, there isn't a transition period from "here" to "there". We instantly go "there" without any memory of where we left (and don't realize that we even took a "trip" until after we have returned).

So, even if there is an event, no one will notice it (thus making it a non-event). Now that I have just confused myself, time to raid the fridge.

Ehh...I'm going to be even nit-pickier when I clarify that they had stone-carving tools, but they were simply not made of metal.

I think it is possible that the Mayan calendar writer just got tired (or bored) and decided there was no purpose in continuing after December 21, 2012.

Of course, it is also possible that this blue planet will implode that day too .....
