Since I have joined ATS, I have found myself digging deeper into the subject of the "end times". For thousands of years people have believed that
their generation would be the last generation and the world would end. Prophets, seers, text, calendars, markings, astrology and more have always
been the catalyst for peoples belief that their world was going to end. It has not happened yet. We are on the fringe of another of those times.
The ghastly prediction now is 2012. Will the world end? Will life end? What change? Whats next?
These questions come up constantly and every theory is discussed and debated as if it were the last time it would happen.
So, after watching a marathon of these prediction/end of times shows on the History channel and seeing just how many times the world was supposed to
have ended, I started thinking about this very subject...mass suggestion.
As a form of hypnosis on a grand scale, mass suggestion works to delude the many and often hiding the truth of the few. When you combine that power
with the global conscious and a dash of fear mongering, you can see where this can lead down any path that one may choose.
So, as I know it, 2012 is predicted to be potentially one or more of many things. There is the end of the era of Pisces and the start of Aquarius.
This can be said to be nothing more than the shifting of a cosmic clock from 11-12 (example only) and nothing significant will happen. Perhaps the
Earth's axis is shifting and is going to gradually continue until it flops hard in 2012 to one side and the entire world is going to fall into a
gravitational chaos, destroying everything with fire, flood and tectonic shift. As put by Bill Murray in Ghostbusters "Cats and dogs living
together, total chaos". Perhaps the Biblical horrors will in fact show themselves and the 4 Horsemen will ride, bringing with them the worst of
times ever seen by man. Perhaps the captains of industry and leaders of economics will collapse all around us and reign with an iron fist and we
learn that the Anti-Christ is not one man, but an idea by which they rule us. Will aliens suddenly make contact only to find that we make better
slaves than allies?
Then again, perhaps nothing will happen. Perhaps the sun will beam into every window as it has done for generations past. Perhaps birds will still
sing and roosters will still crow. Perhaps people will still wake and go to work, feed their pets and send their children off to school. Perhaps
January 1, 2013 will be no different than December 12, 2012.
So, here is my discussion. Is it up to us what happens? If we focus our energies on the positive scenarios of the future, can we in fact making an
impact of good? Alternatively, if we continue to spread the news of doom and drastic change, will we find ourselves propogating the mass suggestion
that feeds that which would do us harm? Will we, the individuals who desire peace and freedom, be the engineers of our own demise?
I would like to point out that I stare into the future with conflicting views. I know that there has to be a reason why so much prophetic history
leads up to a certain and specific time, but I dont believe it to be the doom and destruction of our world. I would like to think that it would be
the ushering in of a new age of thinking and the next evolution of mankind. However, I know that even though we have leapt and bounded in the
advances of sciences and technology, mankind is still very primitive compared to our planet, galaxy, and universe. So, hoping is all I can do right
now..that and "wait to see".
