Regarding the quickening, isn't that how life always works? I mean, throughout history, hasn't time always seemed to accelerate dramatically as we
age? I find it deeply disappointing just how short life on Earth has shown to be personally because I want to accomplish so much but feel like I'm
given such a short time to accomplish all of it. Especially when you consider that after the age of 60 or 70 the body rapidly becomes physically
incapable of doing a lot of things in most cases.
Regarding polarizing, I attribute at least part of that as an effect of the internet. After becoming so connected to the internet, we so quickly see
how things really are around the world. We can much more rapidly network with like-minded individuals and become polarized as a result. My life has
personally taken enormous 180 degree turns in the last few years and if the internet did not exist I question whether those turns would have happened
at all. Even in the past couple weeks after seeing a video I can say it rather dramatically polarized my system of beliefs.
But I must say, the timing of the internet so well within the Mayan 2012 prediction framework is a "strange coincidence" to me indeed!
