Sounds like your trying to deal with some major anxiety right now. It's ok breath things are changing rapidly, and it's not because we are more informed. I think once you get passed the fear you settle into the reality of our world. Privacy is a thing of the past, we are becoming more hostile toward one another, people are divided, god is dead in most of the western world, Americans are becoming dumber and fatter, we no longer eat real food, censorship dominates public discourse, the economy is shot, we are less secure and the future has never looked so uncertain. This site is the reason for waking you up and that's so you can prepare your mind, body and soul.

Everything is as it has always been, in every way, good and evil. Every day people get born, and every day people die. Countless personal apocalypses happen every day, unnoticed by the most, because they're just not concerned.
I payed attention, and, looking back on my three and a half years on this board (and even further to the late nineties, when I prepared for Y2K and the Installation of the New World Order) - I can't remember how many doomsdays were announced and then came and passed without anything significant happening.
Oh, of course, the end is nigh! Well, it always was, and it will always be.
The end was nigh 250 Million years ago, when earth's largest extinction in history killed about 96 % of all marine life and 70 % of life on land.
And it will be nigh in about 5 billion years, when the sun will do her last breath.
The end is always nigh. Our lifes can end every moment.
Every moment I can choke on a brezel, get hit by a car or a comet, or die because of a heart-attack because I was so afraid of the NWO, of extra-dimensional Aliens in D.U.M.B.s or that the T.V. series "The Walking Dead" could be canceled soon.
I'm tired of being afraid. And by letting my fears go, I realize... there's nothing to fear.
Enjoy your life. Look at the flowers. Even in Winter you can find some. They are beautiful.
And as long as there's a sun, there will be flowers.
And finally, when the sun does her last breath, she will do it like dandelion. For that there will be flowers again.
There is no end, not really...
