If you want to talk about ascension, then I'll tell you this. No aliens are going to "save" mankind. No angels, no god, no nothing. If mankind is to be saved, it will be by its own efforts. Not saying God or angels wouldn't help out, but we're going to have to do our part.
We're each responsible for our own ascension. Not God, not angels, aliens, the Buddha, whatever. Just us. If you're not already working on it, then no one is going to come on 12/21/12 and wave a magic wand and make you perfect. There's no quick fix, no sudden satori just because you managed to survive until some particular date. If you want to get to the Garden, you'll have to get off your butt and walk. Sure there will be help, but you've got to walk the walk.
I think I understand Phage's comments. They may sound unnecessarily harsh, but I believe he's got a point. He's mocking the "Hippies", the New Age folks who once believed that the Age of Aquarius was coming, that this would automatically usher in a new era of peace and understanding and everything. Back then we used such words as "groovy". Of course, this age never came; or if it did, it certainly didn't bring with it the expected transformation. Unfortunately for the New Age, transformation requires effort. Most of us at the time were waiting for it to be handed to us on a silver platter. Most of us were sadly disappointed.
My suggestion is to just work on your own ascension, without worrying about some vague, improbable event taking place on 12/21/12. Do what you can to be a better person. Help others, be kind, treat the environment as gently as you can. If there is some miraculous ascension on the magic date, then you're way ahead of where you would have been. And if there isn't any such event - well, you're still way ahead of where you would have been.
