Ok... here goes...
It's about time that I reveal a theory of mine that I have been working on ... brace yourself... contain the laughter to a dull roar...
I believe that we have "IQ sink-holes" on this planet. Most people encounter them, some people are less affected than others (for reasons I can't
explain) ... as we approach these physical manifestations of stupidity we become more and more prone to simply 'be stupid.'
There was a particular intersection of roads where I used to live where inevitably, someone always was doing something which defied reason... like
crossing the street without looking, or coming to a stop in the middle of the intersection... or failing to take note of the need to stop
altogether.... people would look at their wrist watches while holding a drink, which would then spill all over their shoes. Others would call each
other by someone else's name. As they walked away, they would routinely exclaim... "What was I thinking?" This exemplifies a small
'low-impact' "IQ Sink-Hole".
There are much larger ones.... like near Washington D.C....
Some friends of mine theorize that these sink-hole may float around... pushed by ethereal winds, some think they blossom spontaneously and dissipate
over time. Other thought that these may even merge and explode once a sort of "critical mass" is reached. The less humorous part of me wonders if
an "IQ Sink Hole" can be fabricated and projected.... but I digress
Essentially, the allegory is meant to imply that human nature is prone to seek explanations for events in order to promote predictability in the human
condition. Perhaps the Mayans knew of the cyclic nature of the major astronomical force that the sun represents. Most people who routinely deal with
strangers over long periods of time note that the full moon has a perceivable effect on general behavior... why not the Sun? And even more so, why
could it not be based on forces and conditions which we have yet to acknowledge or determine are 'real?'
Pure science is as much about what we don't know as what we do. In our materialistic consumerist world, we can't really sell what we don't know...
so science and facts are given to us by the establishment based upon that paradigm.
I don't know if my fanciful idea of "IQ Sink Holes" has any parallel in reality (or any merit at all for that matter) ... but the shoe seems to fit
sometimes.... so I dare say, in the case of the prophecies regarding 2012... what we don't know could sneak up on us.... perhaps we should be
prepared to deal with an outbreak of global stupidity.
