Pardon my ignorance, I'm going to ask some questions to clarify if I am correctly grasping your explanation.
To say that something can happen on 2012, when it comes to time or the universe, is impossible and I'll explain to you why.
When you say that it is impossible for something to happen do you mean something that affects our perception of time or the very fabric of the
universe; or simply something at the specified time of 2012 in the universe as we understand that we live in?
The universe could have already ended, and you know what?
It wouldn't affect us in anyway.
As a quick reference I went to Wikipedia to check out the entry on "the universe" and the first few lines were the following: "The Universe
comprises everything we perceive to physically exist, the entirety of space and time, all forms of matter and energy, and the physical laws and
constants that govern them." May I assume that your above statement expresses an opinion or knowledge that what we perceive as our physical universe
has no bearing on our existence or perception on a whole?
Saying a major event could happen in 2012, is like saying a major event can occur to you in a trillionth of a millisecond. Nothing can
happen to you in a trillionth of a millisecond, the amount of time is so small, it doesn't even exist to us!
Again, just trying to clarify, are you saying that an event which we as humans would deem major, such as a massive meteor striking earth or alien
contact could not happen? Or are you saying a major event which affects the essence of the universe as a whole could not happen in a short enough time
period that would be noticeable to us?
Also, are you saying because we can not perceive a change which occurs in a "trillionth of a millisecond" that no change can occur, or that no
change can occur that could have any effect on us, in such a small amount of time?
On a universal scale, 2012 means nothing, it doesn't exist. The entire human race does not exist!
I will concede that the year on our current calender dating 2012 has no meaning outside of the count of the revolutions earth has passed our sun from
an arbitrary point in human history. I will also give you, in essence, it does not exist in any reality besides what it represents to us. However, the
very fact that you wrote this post and that I responded gives quite a bit of evidence that, at least, to myself I exist. I have been under the
assumption (perhaps mistakenly?) that I am a member of the human race.
Perhaps you simply mean that our existence means nothing in a universal scope, to which I would agree. I would agree to that even more so than I would
agree that an imperceptible atom does not "exist" in my perceptual reality. But to say that we do not exist at all I will defer to Descartes'
"Cogito ergo sum."
There is no end because we are only a spec on any dimension in the universe! That includes time!
The universe could have already ended, and it would never affect earth or the human race in anyway what's so ever. Even in a billion
I think I see your point. In a universe or existence that is never changing and all encompasing our reality is just the perception of space and time
in a certain order that flows from "past" to "present" to "future", however, we are merely experiencing it, yet not able to change it's essence
or outcome? Sorry, I am a bit confused at this point and my attempt at putting it into words may not translate well.
Yet, I am not sure how this would refute the fact that a "major event" could happen to us on the calender date of 2012. Perhaps some defining of
your earlier statements would clarify this for me.
No, pease elaborate I am very interested in your theory/knowledge.
