repetition of the numbers, 555 or 121212, as 'siginificant'. Its not. People invented those numbers, they have no 'objective' reality, and
aren't even used by everyone.

I always see time, date and numbers as just labels, something mankind has needed to make sense of the world. Science wouldn't work without time and
numbers, but nature, the Universe etc. would still move on without them. It does not need formulae or theorem, it just is. Heck we even had to invent
i (or j) the imaginary root of -2 to make some science work
Over the centuries man has used numbering systems that were not base ten and the "significance" of a base 10 date may not exist in other number
systems. Also, as said, not everyone uses our Calendar. There are many religious and cultural calendars worldwide.
Also if the calendar were really a soothsayer prediction of a significant event in the Mayans life, would not its actual demise as a civilisation have
been more significant?
We keep getting people who see significance in numbers and/or dates over the years...and always nothing much happens and I expect 2012 to be the
I am quite a spiritual person and know a few, more spiritual ones too. They have come up with tales of having "meetings" with Arch Angels and
Ascended Masters who state it is a vibrational shift towards enlightenment. What?
I have heard of unused DNA being activated, Aliens invading, comets/asteroids colliding, Mayan kings or Jesus returning, time is speeding up, one
friend of mine in India, a disciple of a self proclaimed "Master" thinks a war is to begin in the Middle East that will be the "end of days", but
there are really too many things to list here.
For me I do not know, I am open minded enough to know man doesn't know it all but the Quantum world, apart from making science funky and not boring
again, is also a curse for all kinds of metaphysical and pseudo-science gibberish entering the world, libraries and of course DVD collections.
That is something else that gets me. How often do the authors of these ideas come to the table and say they have evidence for salvation or damnation
and the knowledge is yours for the mere purchase of a book or DVD? I often have a laugh at that, you discover the "End is nigh" and you are only
going to tell the people who buy your book and DVD !!
Like with so much of this stuff if there were ONE theory/idea that stood out maybe there is a chance that there may be something occurring but there
are as many ideas as there are people looking for an alternative to the drab lives they live today. But of course there are those that say we each
create our own thought universe so maybe we are all right?
I am not saying nothing is going to happen, just that I see nothing that stands out and right now fully expect to go to bed on ANY of these
"significant" dates and wake up the next day to the same world I did the day before. Probably a little worse though, probably another war, bombing,
natural disaster somewhere but essentially the same world.
I agree that if it were not for the Mayan calendar kicking it off no one would have noticed a thing..
