Let me say, though, that I never interpreted the original calendar this way, nor do I think it was ever supposed to be interpreted to mean, "the end of the world in 2012". The calendar was supposed to indicate the end of an age, or cycle, and the beginning of a new one. I really don't understand how so many people could interpret that to mean, "the end of the world".
