Many years ago an astronomer friend explained to me that when Mercury goes retrograde - electrical items will not work efficiently. When Mercury returns to a regular orbit - electrical items will work as though nothing had happened.
I still believe that our ancient tribes have a lot of wisdom and the knowledge from their respective cultures should be studied and never ignored. We have more disease than ever before in our history, war has been a constant thread in every generation, we have polluted our water and created a throw away society - we NEED to listen to the ancient tribes. We need to keep learning - particularly from our history - so that we might learn from it and not keep repeating our mistakes.

That's not actually true. The end of the 13th baktun is just that, the end of the 13th baktun. There is no special significance associated with this date. The calendar doesn't roll over to zero and we don't enter a new Age/World/etc. All that happens is that it is then the 14th baktun. It's much the same way that at midnight New Year's day we will move from 2011 to 2012.
You've assumed much. Mercury and it's retrograde motion affecting electrical items has never failed - for me.
2. Diseases are up - it's got nothing to do with how long we live. So many pharmaceuticals are consumed by so many people across the planet that medical chemicals are being detected in water samples. Why live to a hundred if you are arthritic - needing handfuls of medication to function - have no memory like alzheimers ...do I need to continue for you to get my point?
3. War does not have to happen. We have never been given an opportunity to live in peace and some of us are hoping we may just get that chance - when people like you stop accepting that war is a 'natural' part of life. So is sharing - we just don't live in a world where sharing is widely practiced.
4. Where did I state anything about protection of the environment? I did mention we have a throw away society. How many rubbish tips do we need to have all over the planet? How many plastic containers have to float around the oceans. How many animals have to suffer from our pollution?
While I respect you have your opinions and I will read them peacefully - please expand your thinking. Please just try to imagine a world without war - without people blown to bits - without the sadness and futility of it all. War does not have to exist - we support it and so it continues.
