I can't really just line you out on the basis of my understanding, as it is in my head, because it is years' worth of research, and my fingers would
wear down to the knuckles! But I can point you in the right direction for your own research, there are some places were some reliable sources put
together more than just an idea or two, which is the only way this can be figured out. The info is not just in one place or field of science, but in
all manner of areas, from anthropology to archeology, history, world religions, physics, geodynamics, and paleontology.
The 'great year' is 52,000--this is the duration of the solar system's own 'rotation' within the galaxy. This corresponds to our 52 week year.
The universe runs like clockwork, no doubt! LOL
If you haven't read up on any Mayan 2012 thing, a good one to read is John Major Jenkins' Mayan Cosmogenesis. When you research this, don't regard
the various opinions and conclusions each source might make, just gather factual information, data. Then you can process it for yourself and it
will be clear! I think the big problem these days is everyone wants an instant answer and the resultant confusion is stupendous. We can be our own
detectives and we must. We cannot research every fact, but the internet can be a filter. Do a search on a subject, not a belief or theory, and check
out as many different websites as there are groups of thought/theories. Regardless of what differing conclusions have been arrived at in each case,
the set of consistent facts will begin to stand out, because facts don't change. If the buddhists, hindus, and mormons all cite the same source with
the same exact data, the data is real to us all. Their conclusions are real to them.
Here are some topics:
climate change (especially 'global warming')
the pliestocene extinction
underwater archeological discoveries
middle east archeology
mythology of all sorts
religious lore of all sorts
Frank C. Hibben's trip to Alaska (he was a professor and UNM who is now deceased)
origins of language and civilization
the legends of Atlantis and Lemuria
the seven wonders of the ancient world
Here's a few pages that summarize a bunch:
(this one says 'proof of noah's flood?--noah's flood was not the flood of 10,000 to 12,000 years ago, but
the information is useful if you keep that in mind)
Back to the 2012 thing--our year has 4 seasons. So does the galactic year. And these 'seasons' change every 13,000 years just as our seasons
change every 13 weeks. There is a climate change, however temporary, every 13 weeks, somewhat gradual but definitely discernible. Sometimes things
die and other times there is renewal and rebirth. Same is true for the earth.
The winter solstice of the earth in 2012 will be lining up with the greater winter solstice that same year, something which doesn't happen except
every 13,000 years (I think it is, anyway, it's very rare
). If you've heard of precession (which is related to being in the 'age of
aquarius' or the 'age of pisces') then that is the gradual movement of our earth, within the solar system, as the solar system does it's cycle in
the galactic year.
So, in all probability, the last 'season change' was at the time of the Pleistocene period. And we are due for another now.
Sampling ice cores from antartica, they have made new findings that show that the last ice age melted in the space of 50 years! and the climate
changed and was the same for 1000 years. Then, in 20 years, it adjusted to the climate we know now, which is more warmer than the ice age (of
course). 50 years! Once ice starts to melt, it is an exponentially increasing process. The glaciers are retreating--research about tourism and
environmental research in Alaska. They might soon be gone! They are retreating everywhere! The Ross ice shelf is thinning, as well. Last year, the
northwest passage was actually clear for the first time in modern shipping history!
These things are not broadcast, but they are being exposed more and more. This time last year it was total silence from the powers-that-be. But now
they blame 'global warming,' etc. Natural disasters have increased, no matter what anyone says, if you look at each monitoring source independently
(such as USGS for tectonic activity) you can see for yourself.
