Great thread OP. Could you talk about the 2010 solstice with the lunar eclipse? Given the importance of the sun/moon/earth/galactic center alignment, why do people feel that this upcoming solstice is 'more important' than the 2010 one, when the 2010 alignment was more profound?
Please share more on the 2010 alignment, that would be interesting. As to 2012, many of us are presuming that the Mayans knew something about "The Great Year" and the turning point of the ages in so far as their calendar began with the end date of this solstice, and worked backwards from there.

And if there's a valid spiritual or psychological "focal point" or what I would call a cosmological theodolite (lens) in any of this, which I believe there is, then it involves the breaking up and dissolution of all that is unreal, and the reintegration of what is real, or the denial of all ignorance and the acceptance and embracing of receptivity of the light of truth and of spirit informed by reason.

When we get to the end of the "program" let us call it (said like Morpheus in the Matrix), and we come to that space where there's nothing more we can do, or I should say that we MUST do or are compelled to do - when we come to nothing in particular as the everywhere always state of eternal being and becoming, we suddenly realize, perhaps to our horror if not shame, that the only thing that really mattered in the final analysis, was and is, love, or in our case, looking around at the world as it is, an abject failure in love.

Why is this a laughing matter?
Because what was reasonable, was abandoned and rejected in favor of everything that was unreasonable, and yet its unreasonableness, is so utterly unreasonable ie: foolish (in one way or another) only because we also know, on the other hand, what IS reasonable! It's still there, the sanity we lost as a "civil society", lurking under the surface like a taproot or a rhizome or as the unseen Eschaton at the end of time and history just waiting to spring it's absolute reasonableness upon us all, first to our horror and shame and to our dismay, and then eventually (if we take the inquiry to it's logical conclusion), our hilarity - of the kind capable of wiping away the tears from our eyes, only to produce tears of laughter in their place, which eventually come to an end in the form of a smile (instead of a frown).
Although having come back to our "senses" in accordance with all preconcieved standards of "normalcy" we might give our head a shake, altogether forgetting what we were just laughing at or smirking over; we may glance at our watch, thinking about something that we're not even certain is important as the chattering mind flits about momentarily unsure of itself, only recovering a precarious balance of power in its favor by quickly reasserting it's absolutely UNreasonable authority over us in turning our attention once again away from what is (was) reasonable and rational, to the next utterly mundane and absurd preoccupation, even "concern", or perhaps if we so choose, a grave concern. Maybe even something that gets us really PEEVED OFF!
"It's a bad bad world" we conclude, while the glorious world-waiting-to-be-born (firing straight out of the womb of suffering) is immediately discarded out the window with a splash of bathwater in favor of Facebook and Twitter, as CNN or even G_d forbid, Fox News, eminates from the flat TV screen and, lost again, we float around many of us for YEARS, forgetting all about that one quintessential most important and vital thing we were supposed to remember and once knew, even as something you could feel in your bones as a child. And, as sad as it is, in hindsight, athough we might have caught fleeting glimpses of "it" from time to time, it eventually became one question and line of reasoning we just shrug off as of no consequence, and most certainly nothing to get emotional about!
The Cornerstone of Reason
And yet, as if from only the thinnest of membranes away (from the insanity and absurdity) there's this powerful and abiding, even indominable "cornerstone of reason"; of "reason", if only because everything that's stupid just can't stand up to the weight of it's perfect and pure common sensibleness. Then, in recognition of this powerful center of reason and logos (spiritual reason) we may indeed giggle, and we may laugh, and right there at that very moment, as Wolf Blitzer somewhat painfully (he's looking sadder by the day) and in a monotone voice and demeanor drones on about Syria, or Iran - the clear light of truth dawns AGAIN, and we burst out laughing at a world gone awry for all the wrong reasons, and then we KNOW that the rock of ages IS coming of age!, against which the follies and absurdities of history will surely crash, in gales of laughter, sorrow and regret, and then at long last, more laughter, as we laugh ourselves AT OURSELVES straight into a domain of newound historical possibility, relative to which the rantings of the so-called "power elite" like Obama or Romney, are rendered mute (and moot), and there, here again, at the end of history as we know it, you/WE laugh again, together, because you/WE were the first ones there/here at the end of the age (and the beginning of a new one as an age of living water from a boundless jug) to experience the RISE OF HUMOR, and it was our own.
It was and is the humor of perfect understanding, as a veritable ROCK against which everything that is ridiculous and absurd is brought first to light, and then to the brunt of the ridicule, yet not without dissolving it's sting or the absurdity of its injustice(s) in the light of pure reason and love and compassionate awareness and a more complete understanding and comprehension, thus giving backbone and rational support to any good joke at absurdity's expense, and we've got enough material surely to last a millenium!
God help the politicians though, and bullies everywhere, because soon there won't be anywhere left to hide, least of all behind your own skin and bones, when the heart becomes visible and we come to see face to face both ourselves and one another, precisely as we are, authentically, and at least in our case authentically smiling for all the right reasons, and as for the rest well if they've completely lost it and there's nothing that can be done, come along and "leave the dead to bury their dead", until they too get the joke, even if a little late and from the wrong end of life, it makes no difference, only that it arrives eventually which for some reason is always on time and never too late.
Welcome to the 2012 Cosmogensis of the Noosphere! (said like an announcer at a three ring circus).

I totally concur fourthmeal. I have been going through the same process, writing down my thoughts so as to express them in a specific way. Forgiveness is a biggie and it's like wringing water out of a football field sized blanket by hand.
I'm also focusing on being here now in the present moment with an open heart and appreciation for the lessons learned. Just reading your posts and typing this out helps tremendously, so thank you.
Looks like one of our tests is enduring the ever present peanut gallery. I love you all in Dolby surround sound and I'm happy to be tied to your whipping post. I'm pulling for all of you.

You claim there is lots of evidence for all of this and yet you provide none. I guess all I can do is start with a few questions. Who are your sources for the claims regarding the Galactic Plane? I can provide a number of scholarly articles that state we are nowhere near the Galactic Plane and have never seen an actual scientist who says we are about to cross it. My second question is why would the Precession of the Equinoxes start over on a solstice? The reason their called Precession of the Equinoxes is because it is determined by where the Sun rises on the equinoxes. Of course this ignores the fact that the Precession of the Equinoxes is an arbitrary system created by Man that has no beginning or end. I await the evidence you say exists but so far it sounds like you are just parroting baseless New Age claims.

Anyway, here is a picture or 2 that I found interesting to share with you...
From the Sun...see what I see here?
The alignment you were asking for I think...
