You ask, What's the Story of 2012
2012 is a Mayan calendar date, which is a period of days,
the beginning of the present Mayan cycle/calendar was in 3114 BCE,
the Mayan calendar is made up of 13 lesser cycles of 144,000 days each.
(so that 144,000 X 13 = 1,872,000 days)
therefore 3114 BCE +1,872,000 days will result in 21 Dec 2012 in our timekeeping as the completion of the Mayan 'Long Count' or 'Great Cycle'
Mayan religion & cosmology tells us that there were 3 previous "Long Count' calendars,
(each lasting the required ~5,139.44 solar years)
+ the first Long Count ended with major changes in the lands/ 'earth'...etc
+ the second Long Count ended with major planetary change by 'fire'.....etc
+ the third Long Count ended with major social changes by water, 'flood' story?
this, the 4th creation period [i.e., Long Count or Great Cycle is supposed to have begun in 3114 BCE in our timekeeping, aka: 4 Ahua in Mayan
timekeeping & known as the Long Count of the 'Jaguar" will end on our 21 Dec 2012]
+ this, the 4th Long Count is to end with major planetary change by 'wind'
then, as the Mayan timekeeping Priests, Seers, Shaman tell us, that on the next day.... 22 December 2012-
will begin the 5th & final Mayan cycle/calendar, Long Count....
A Long Count they call the "Final Sun"
that's the jist of 2012,
the gloom & doom-ists tell only of the calamities & disasters that can/may/could happen.
we are told that this 'Jaguar' age will end in death destruction calamity etc.
but if you look closer, the Mayan tell us that in their worldview,
the previous (& current) ages the world was changed by the forces of nature "Earth-Fire-Water- Air"...which are the 4 'elements' found in our
the 5th 'element' is what?
the Maya 5th World age is known as what?
as far as i can extrapolate from Maya mythology/religion/prophecy/timekeeping
we have another +5,139.44 years of future ahead of us, the 5th world age aka; the Final Sun
