There are a great many 2012 threads here, and they are all good...
Most of them point to Mayan or Egyptian or Chinese origins of the prophecies
that things change in a major way December 2012...
A great "super-theory" however must be considered...
Terence and Dennis McKenna, two genius brothers who
were mathematicians and ethnobotanists who researched a great many things,
wrote a number of books... the book they wrote about 2012 must be considered here...
They took everything people on this site seem to know about 2012,
but then they COMBINED all those historical facts from those ancient civilizations
and then, here's the best part, they created a MATHEMATICAL FORMULA
to express what the Mayan Calender, the Chinese I Ching and other
oracles have said all along...
To summarize, their theory, called TIMEWAVE ZERO,
is a simple X-Y axis....
The North-South Axis represents MAJOR EVENTS IN HISTORY,
while the East-West Axis represents TIME, in decades or even centuries.
To make a long story short, the McKennas found that when they "plotted" major events
in history ("novelty"), then began to see a "pattern" to history itself... and how, during the 20th century for instance, there was an
"ingression of novelty" as things "quickened"...
When their timeline was extrapolated to the year 2012,
it turns out that the line they used to graph- a line that looked like
a Dow Jones index during a crazy day of trading-
well, this line actually found its' end, it's terminus... on December 23rd 2012...
In other words- the line representing life as we know it... ends... on the same date
predicted by the Ancients- not because the McKennas MADE it fit retroactively,
but because a) its' a cool coincidence or b) its' some type of hard mathematical proof
or at least cooberration regarding these prophecies.
Enuf of my attempts to summarize a complex theory the creators needed a whole book to explain... if interested, google Dennis McKenna or Terence
McKenna and TIMEWAVE ZERO.
Any one else like the McKenna brothers and their insanely great adventures and theories?
