First and foremost, let's consider the reality that nothing out of the ordinary is going to happen on December 21, 2012. Don't worry, i'll tell
The Mayans were advanced for their time. The Mayans designed their calendar around the phases of the Moon for agriculture purposes. It just so happens
that the Moon follows the same fundamental mathematical path as many cosmic bodies. The Mayans did not have some deep understanding of the stars.
They learned a lot based on their observations, but had no way of knowing anything that couldn't be witnessed and measured by the naked eye.
The Mayan Long Count Calendar is segmented, separated into larger and larger chunks of time. The final segment of this calendar concludes on December
21, 2012. It's not strange that this is the winter solstice, because since it was based on Moon phases, the end should begin on the solstice. It
just makes logical sense.
When this final segments concludes, what happens? The calendar starts again at the beginning. Nothing magical occurs, and nothing special, since, at
the end of the day, a calendar is nothing but a human invention.
Even so, the idea of groups of people thinking positive thoughts to ward off an impending doom is interesting and could be applied in other situations
as well. Research has shown that consciousness interacts with physical reality in small traces. If droves of people meditated simultaneously on a
single event or purpose, i believe it's entirely possible that we could change an event.
