I think you've hit the nail on the head.
People who engage in extreme sports, for example, don't seem too interested in these ideas.
I think it's a way for people to remember that they are mortal, life can and does end. Thrill-seekers experience this thought process regularly,
while others who live more mundane and routine lives don't, so they need to substitute it with thoughts about the end of everything.
I think it's a natural thing to think about ones death, and thrill-seekers do so more regularly than others. So those others substitute a risky
action with the thoughts of apocalypse.
On a separate note, I actually do consider the Mayan knowledge to be one of the most advanced to have ever existed. But, I don't consider our
abilities to translate such information to be entirely sound.
I also appreciate the evidence of a natural cycle where the Earth literally slips into another position every few thousand years. There is historical
evidence that this is a routine occurrence.
I also appreciate the evidence that there is another planet somewhere out there. And it seems that this planets arrival is the catalyst for the
shifting of the Earth.
After all, doesn't it seem reasonable that in this complex mess of a solar system there would be one aspect that threatens us as a planet? Doesn't
every other planet show the signs of having been touched by chaos? What makes the Earth so special?
The evidence suggests that it is possible that a planet is approaching that will effect the Earth. It seems to coincide with the Mayan calendars'
end, and the routine historical references of global catastrophe.
Believe it or not, there was actually a chance that as every computer on the planet switched from 2000 to 2001 there could have been major problems.
It wasn't a fantasy or delusion, it was a genuine threat.
Many corporations and military establishments worked to rectify the problem. So the fact that nothing bad happened doesn't mean that nothing would
have happened had they not worked on the problem.
Either way, I find it fascinating. I'm not frightened about it, the Human race has survived before in vast numbers when this happened. We will
survive again if there is a planet approaching and it does effect our Earth.
