Hey guys! I haven't been on in a while, so ive been kinda reserving my thoughts for the ATS community. If this is in the wrong place, by all means
move, and If I ramble, I apologize in advance.
First off, I just wanted to have us all get in the mindset of the Mayans. They had a vast knowledge of cycles, and the planets, without the technology
that we have now. They had a connection, that we didnt have, with the great unknown. But in their culture, their day was a cycle, nights were cycles,
years were cycles. They thought of everything in cycles. Now taking a look at cycles of the earth, We already know nothing ever ends, its just
transformed. I may have just eaten that pizza, and the pizza is no more, but its now a glob of substance hurdling torwards my bowels. XD Its not a
pizza, it was changed into from a pizza into a glob. To them: an end, was just the way things went before things began again. The sense that things
just "Happen", is nothing new
Now, When they said that our world was going to end. What do you REALLY think they meant? Did they mean it would stop? Or that it would merely end?
Which, today's connotations make the two almost identical.
BUT. On the otherside of the argument. I've been digging deeper into myself and my mind. Asking all sorts of questions to the people I work with. I
asked my friend what he though about it. And it went like the 2012 conversation goes, "its not gonna happen, but it would be awesome"
more I talked to him, asking him what he knew about Myans and what he thought he knew about the 2012 prophecy. The more he realized he knew nothing
about it. And by the end of the shift at work, he left me by saying "Well, if 2012 doesnt come, then I'll change my ways".
The last thing he said made me wonder about the human condition, that the only reason we Act on things, is whether there is or isnt a reason to act.
Some people will act, or be the reason for the action, if you will, and take matters into their own hands. Those people, I think of as people who feel
with their mind, and think with their hearts. Instead labeling themselves as a Thinker, or a Feeler. But most of us wont do things that wont benifit
us. But after he had said that, it made me think about the self fulfilling prophecy. I just kind of thought about it, but didnt think that 2012 was
that for sure.
A couple days later, I went to a party with that same friend, and instead of getting drunk, i sat there and discussed 2012, and the universes inner
workings, all the way down to the tiny atoms making erosion and weathering a thing in all of our lives( I got deep down into how cleaning with a
dishtowel on a grimed up counter is a small scale replica of the bigger picture), with a couple college kids from my town. But I had to bring up what
my friend had said about if it didnt come, that they would change their ways. And two of the three said that they had thought about that before, and
the other one was so drunk he thought he was making sense. But, here's the kicker; people sometimes have that gut feeling, that -feeling-(
