The 2012 Phenomenon
is a mix of doomsday-prophecies or new-age-prophecies, depending on
perspective. For me its nothing more than a mass-delusion. I say this not from the viewpoint of a Skeptic but from the viewpoint of a believer in
spiritual realities...spiritual realities which the 2012-movement denigrates.
The 2012 movement was developed in the 1970s by Jose Arguelles
. The authorized
biography of Arguelles portrays a man who suffered phases of depression, hatred of society and was drugged out of his mind on psychedelic substances
for most of his life. It was in drugged states that he had most of his "visions" on mayan calendars.
It was also supported by the late Terence McKenna, another promoter of the "psychedelic revolution".
David Icke too had Ayahuasca "visions" of 2012 and began promoting it.
It is also promoted by crowds of extremely narcissistic people claiming to be "star children" or "indigo children".
These people rant on about how special and enlightened the mayans were, when in fact...
The Maya practiced human sacrifice. In some Maya rituals people were killed by having their arms and legs held while a priest cut the person's
chest open and tore out his heart as an offering. This is depicted on ancient objects such as pictorial texts, known as codices. It is believed that
children were often offered as sacrificial victims because they were believed to be pure
Any person of some metaphysical sophistication understands that time itself is in perpetual fluctuation, that what the Future is and is not changes
with every breathe each human takes. Trying to pinpoint an exact date for a future event is a folly because time is flexible and human-made-dates are
Neither are Arguelles delusions actually based on the Mayan Calendar...not to mention the Buddhist Calender, Hindu Calendar, Jewish Calender or any
other spiritual time-line.
You will not find a single 2012-follower that can explain how and where exactly the "Mayan Calendar" ends in 2012. Nor will you find ANY indication
whatsoever of the following associated claims:
* The Hopi Calender makes no mention of 2012
* Nostradamus makes no mention of 2012
* The Book of Revelation makes no mention of 2012
* The Collision of the planet "Nibiru" with earth was originally predicted for the year 2003. Marketing-tricksters have only recently changed that
to 2012 in order to match the mass-hysteria.
If these "hints" arent enough, consider the following:
- The 2012 movement only gained momentum after nothing spectacular happened in the year 2000. Neither did the world come to an end in other widely
publicised doomsday and new-age dates: 1900, 1950, 1988, etc.
- There is no reason to dismiss all other calendars in the world which do not end 2012.
- According to ancient Hindu teachings concerning the "Kali Yuga" the "new age" will not happen on a specific date but be spread out over hundreds
of years. Actually the industrial revolution and the Internet Revolution of the late 80s are already sufficient indicators of a "new age" having
- The amount of cheap gimmicks and products sold to the gullible, such as survival packs, protection sprays, "ascension robes" star-child-make-up
and other such nonsense are evidence of the type of dumbed-down crowd being catered to here.
Psychosis (from the Greek ψυχή "psyche", for mind or soul, and -ωσις "-osis", for abnormal condition), with adjective psychotic,
literally means abnormal condition of the mind, and is a generic psychiatric term for a mental state often described as involving a "loss of contact
People suffering from psychosis are said to be psychotic. People experiencing psychosis may report hallucinations or delusional beliefs, and may
exhibit personality changes and thought disorder. This may be accompanied by unusual or bizarre behavior, as well as difficulty with social
interaction and impairment in carrying out the daily life activities.

I hereby promise that the world will not end in 2012...and if I was wrong, I´ll give you a million dollars.
