RAY! .... When somebody asks you "If You ARE a GOD" ... YOU SAY YES DAMNIT!" :shk:
"...people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya. They say that the world will end in December 2012. The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed."

Is this what you do? You elicit ideas through ATS so you can write books? Seriously Ickish to me!
As for my statement above, I was not kidding! Death will be what is desired but will not be granted unfortunately. So instead those that can open to it can find Freedom. Most will not remain where they are at this time and will find themselves moving about in an attempt to find their way.
Good luck on that book!

I've actually been reading your book when I can on Smashwords and like it a lot. I can only read a bit here and there but I've gotten to about the 40th page or so. I'll end up buying it when I have the funds to do so.
It certainly has clashed with my thoughts of whether or not a God or god exists. I've been inclined to believe not but your book certainly has me questioning myself in that regard. I've been reading Sartre and Camus, and attempting to understand their difficult language, and I think Existentialism is a great philosophy but it doesn't go far enough for me in regards to the meaning of existence. I find it far too easy to say that we give existence its meaning. It seems lazy.
On topic, with all the doom/miraculous happenings that everyone is looking forward to next year it struck me that we really seem to have gotten nowhere since humans started wondering where we came from. I don't see these 2012 prophecies and beliefs about doomsday planets to be any different from the ideas that cultures have subscribed to in the past. I also do not understand our craving for death and destruction. I'm sure ants are not too worried when you go stomping by their hill so why should we worry so much when a comet is millions of miles away?edit on 7/6/2011 by PhantomLimb because: (no reason given)

Before I get accused of baiting people here, I want to announce that because of what I learned from you folks the last time I spent free time here, I revised my book and added 30 pages worth of new information that I could not have gained without your invaluable help as inspiration and irritation (one of the perks of self-publishing). So, please don't assume that I am knocking any of you for what you honestly believe. Yes, I will challenge you, but that's what you did for me, and I gained considerably as a result.
So here's my question.
What is it that so many of you feel is coming that will transform the human race next year? I understand the overview, and have read the "marketing literature" about the Mayan Calendar and how all these other theologies and cultural beliefs dovetail with that specific timeline, and I am also conversational in the cosmological aspects of December 2012, so let's not waste time with reiteration. What I want to understand is if any of you have a vision of what this "something" is that will actually be the change agent, and that will do whatever it'll take to transform a significant enough percentage of human perspectives on this planet to allow you to smile and say that it definitely came to pass - whatever "it" is that is supposed to come to pass.
To be honest, I can't imagine it to be a supernatural event, since the modern human being is infinitely capable of dismissing anything it simply refuses to accept as real. I also can't imagine an alien invasion, since that wouldn't transform the consciousness of people, so much as put them behind barricades with weaponry. Not exactly a real transformation as much as a stand-off.
I also have a hard time with those who claim that only them and their friends will be enlightened enough to notice the change, since that kind of transformation has probably happened every year - somewhere on the planet - and I can remember when I was 20 yrs old and we discovered that PCP would provide us with answers that no one else was enlightened enough to understand. So it's not as if I've ever been above that sort of transformation myself. No, it can't be a members-only transformation.
I'm thinking that this transformation - if one is actually coming next year - will have to involve a massive flood of immediately accepted information that completely reinvents reality for the average person. And not just at an intellectual level, but at a deep visceral level. To me, nothing else could legitimately be considered a global transformation.
Any ideas? And please, no links to any Hindu yogi sites. That stuff's been around since before Christ, and hasn't transformed a damn thing outside of pockets within India and some Internet messageboard forums here and there. Whatever this upcoming thing is, it'll have to be brand new and immediately compelling. Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism, Theoretical Physics and New Age hybrids have been around long enough to prove that they are not the keys to whatever this incoming transformation is about. Let me know what you think. I'm just trying to challenge us to figure out what it might be.
