There is nothing special about 2012. I did the research when I first heard the theories, and I was decidedly opposed to the whole idea after I was
finished. The whole idea is based on the Mayan calendar, which was based on the moon. There are a great many cosmic movements that can also be deduced
by looking at the moon. Lots of paths have the same mathematics in the universe. Yes, December 21, 2012 marks the end of the Mayan Long Count
Calendar. More conventionally for their time, however, this is the winter solstice. Another date you can mark by the passage of the moon. People are
taking the Mayan texts out of context when they assume the end of the calendar cycle is THE END. It's the end of the cycle, not the end of the world.
A new cycle simply begins.
I read about photon belts, and the idea that we will be passing through one approximately around 2012, and how that was supposed to act as cosmic
rays, which are essential for genetic mutation, which is basically evolution at the fundamental level. I believe a square kilometer only receives
about 6 cosmic ray particles every year, so passing through a belt of them would be quite a thing i'm sure, tiny particles smashing through our DNA
and changing us forever. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a photon belt, and we are not passing through one.
Cosmically, our solar system is completing a full orbit of the galaxy in 2012. The only hypothetical is that we will experience some kind of shift
related to our centering, something to do with the orbital path of our solar system. But, the universe has a much longer clock than we do, and i think
any ill-effects would be felt over a much longer scale than our lifetime, or likely the lifetime of our species.
I also reject the idea that people are going to start working together in 2012. We're in 2007 and the corrupt are as corrupt as they ever were, and
they show no signs of slowing down. We care less and less about our fellow man, and resign to watch Paris Hilton interviews rather than Presidential
debates. Not one person I know in my daily life (aside from my wife) has seen ONE of the debates. The people in power are screwing us and we are
letting them because we simply do not care.
No, things are just starting to get worse if you ask me. I'd be more inclined to look forward to an imaginary 2012, waiting for change to come rather
than going out and making changes.
