There is a belief that in 2012 we will enter into a golden age, ascending into the 5th dimension, DNA being activated, all centres of the brain
activated etc. It's overtly positive. I wonder, however, why is it positive? To me the course the world is going on seems anything but positive, and
I see no reason how a positive future could be reached from this course.
If we look at other prophecies, particularly the Hindu time cycles(discussed by Michael Cremo in his book human devolution) the near and distant
future looks very bleak. According to the Hindu time cycles we are in the age of Kali, which began 5000 years ago in 3120 BCE. The age of Kali has a
duration of 432,000 years, meaning 427,000 years remain. The age of Kali is the worst epoch of all the four ages, and as we go further into it get
worse and worse, to the point where any noble values in the world are crushed by sheer force. Thus according to this account of the future humans on
Earth are heading for an incredibly dystopic future which will continue for tens of thousands of human generations. This kind of throws water all over
all of these ascention theories.
I cannot really say which one is right, but if ones looks at current events one has more reason to believe the Hindu account, than the new-age one.
