One question i would like to ask, is about the supposed "galactic alignment" set to happen on December 21st. Now, i have read too many posts saying
that this happens ever year, which, seems to be the case. But there are a lot of educated people that said this happens ever so many thousands of
years. Fact is, i can't find a straight answer. Is this a different kind of alignment that doesn't usually happen? Or does this alignment happen
ever year and it's of no significance. Could anyone answer this for me?

Yes, every year our planet passes between the sun and the galactic center of the milky way. It's such a massive celestial body, I dont think we can
say it's at this time on this date, but Dec 21 of a leap year is about right.
Another theory is that it is when our sun aligns with another celestial body, and the center of the milky way, ie. it only happens once every time our
solar system revolves around the milky way. If that is the case we are talking a matter of millions of years, but there isn't any real evidence to
support this theory.

The timeline you're using is very inaccurate, regarding the "advancements" which supposedly coincide with this cyclical calendar. Written language
is far older than 3000 bc, domestication of animals goes back tens of thousands of years, as do agricultural practices.

Which written language are you referring too? I thought Sumerian cuneiform (dating to 3200BCE) was the oldest we know of, or some Egyptian hieroglyphs
(dating to 3400BCE) if you count them.
I think its hard to say exactly when these things took place, so my timeline isn't perfect. The ancient Greeks had a basic computer and the Pharaohs
had batteries, but I think It could represent when these inventions reached a "critical mass." When so many people know about it, only a global
catastrophic event could cause it to be forgotten.

I'm still not too sure what your getting at.. I included the Aztec calender and Machu Piccu because the Mesoamerican long count predates the Mayan
calender, even though it was not widely used by other peoples. I understand they adapted it and attached significance to Dec 2012 by counting back
from a supposed start date. But I think these cultures would have interacted in much the same way north Africa interacted with Europe, or china and
Mongolia. My point was to try to encourage people to think of all the things we don't know, rather than concentrate on the little we do. Sorry if I

Now how they might have figured out the time period such events occurred who knows. Maybe human advancement simply has a natural rhythm or set period
of time to where a discovery occurs that simply wipes clean the count down simply by merit of how radically it alters humanities direction from a
Kinda like a marble rolling down a zig zag path speeds up then hits the corner and stops and begins to speed up again until it hits the next corner
and on and on it goes.

This I might be able to run with
. I could imagine in a hundred years we will be making plans too permanently leave this planet. If it comes down
too a matter of humans destroying Earth and everything that lives on it... or humans leaving whats left of this planet too the sentient beings we
currently share it with..... Hopefully it doesn't come too that.

I think this is it in a nutshell. You could say the same about the renaissance or the industrial revolution but for first time quantum mechanics is
allowing us an insight into what thought actually is. "Coincidentally" we developed the microchip about the same time, which has allowed us to
integrate computers with thought, such as Stephan Hawkings mean machine. It'll probably be another five thousand years before we understand the
implications of this.
But your right, if we dont start looking after this place, we will never make it...
