      2012 A.D.
      by http://www.halexandria.org/dward415.htm

      The End of the Mayan Calendar is scheduled for December 21, 2012
      (give or take a year). The possibilities of what this "end" might
      mean is an increasingly hot topic on the Internet, in conferences,
      printed articles, and in discussions all over the globe. This is
      because it just might be an incredibly important moment in history --
      e.g., the end of history!

      Calendars, in general, do not end [1]. The whole purpose of
      developing and/or keeping a calendar is to predict future events
      based upon the cyclical nature of the world -- to keep such things
      as agriculture in line with the seasons or inform out-of-line
      politicians when their terms of office are up for reconsideration.
      [In this regard, politicians are like babies. Both need to be
      changed periodically, and often, for the same reason.] But the idea
      that everything is coming to some sort of completion, i.e. the end
      of cycles, the end of days, the end... period... This just doesn't
      compute when it comes to the idea of a calendar.

      But the Mayan Calendar is not necessarily your average, run-of-the-
      mill calendar. It is, among other things, reputed to be the most
      accurate in the world. This is due in part to the fact it is also a
      relatively complicated calendar, using cycles of 13 and 20 (weird!),
      relating to the cycles of other planets (e.g. Venus), and in general
      incorporating some 22 (at last count) different sub-calendars, such
      that every contingency can be accounted for.

      The Mayans did not elaborate in great detail about what would
      happen in 2012 A.D., just that their calendar would end. However,
      there has been no end (pardon the pun) to the possibilities being
      forecast by modern day interpretors of what the Mayans might have
      meant. These possibilities include 2012 A.D. as a time for:

      1) major changes in human DNA (as in Indigo Children),

      2) an enormous leap in Consciousness,

      3) dimensional shifts (as in Hyperdimensional Physics
      and/or Superstrings),

      4) the cessation of linear Time,

      5) an evolutionary human pinnacle,

      6) a huge surge and multiple breakthroughs in

      7) the end of Money [Shirley, you jest!],

      8) massive genetic mutations [the good news!],

      9) a serious, altogether-too-close encounter with a Near-
      Earth Objects member,

      10) and a cosmic alignment of our solar system with the
      plane of our Galaxy, the Milky Way. The latter represents the end
      of a 25,920 year cycle -- a cycle based on the Precession of the

      <http://www.levity.com/eschaton/finalillusion.html> goes so far as
      to suggest that as of December 21, 2012 AD, the possibilities
      include an encounter with a trans-dimensional object such as
      a "Hyperspatial Breakthrough, Planetesimal Impact, Alien Contact,"
      et al. The effects, according to
      <http://www.2012.com.au/unlimited.html> will include everything from
      intense dreams to DNA reprogramming from 2 strands back to 12 strand
      DNA, as well as the emergence of greater intuitive and healing
      abilities, children born with telepathic abilities, and that "all
      plagues of the 90's, including AIDS, will be gone."

      <http://www.siloam.net/jenkins/ambilac.html> has connected the time
      with the alleged Resurrection of Osiris at The Great Pyramids of
      Giza in Egypt. The author, Ruth Allen, <www.siloam.net>noted, "The
      zenith meridian at Giza runs through Jupiter at the Hyades in
      Taurus. The metaphor for this alignment is that the kingdom
      (Jupiter) will be restored to Egypt (Taurus) at that precise moment.
      Thus, Osiris, the Bull of Egypt, will return from the dead at
      22:18:13 on December 21, 2012. If these calculations can be backed
      up, they will have fulfilled the ancient prophecy. It will also
      prove that the Hall of Records is the stars. Remember one simple
      fact. Everything we are and everything we can know, is within the
      stars. That was the fundamental synoptic meaning of the Giza

      One of the more complete repositories of what 2012 A.D. might imply
      (and the sources of such information) is at
      www.diagnosis2012.co.uk. This website has taken ideas from
      alternative scientists, Egyptologists, prophets, channelings,
      divinatory systems, shamanic psychonauts, psychonuts, artists,
      mystics, mythology, Mesoamerican research, the so-called "Bible
      Code", and the concept of a complex fractal Time, where an ancient
      encoding in the Chinese I Ching predicts a 2012 termination point.
      The mathematical wildness of the latter, the so-called TimeWave, is
      particularly intriguing!

      <http://www.2012.com.au/unlimited.html> notes that the Mayan "fifth
      world finished in 1987" [What is termed "the Harmonic Convergence"],
      but that the "sixth world" does not start until 2012. This leaves
      everyone currently "between worlds", aka the "Apocalypse",
      or "revealing". The time is apparently upon everyone to work
      through their "stuff", both individually and collectively. They
      note, for example, that "The Mayan sixth world is actually blank.
      This means it is up to us, as co-creators, to start creating the new
      world and civilization we want now." [Why not get on this right
      after lunch, okay?]

      <http://levity.com/eschaton/Why2012.html> provides an excellent
      article on "The How and Why of the Mayan End Date in 2012 A.D."
      Written by John Major Jenkins (1994), the article makes several
      noteworthy observations, including:

      "Scholars have known for decades that the 13-baktun cycle of the
      Mayan `Long Count' system of timekeeping was set to end precisely on
      a winter solstice, and that this system was put in place some 2300
      years ago. This amazing fact -- that ancient Mesoamerican
      skywatchers were able to pinpoint a winter solstice far off into the
      future -- has not been dealt with by Mayanists. And why did they
      choose the year 2012? One immediately gets the impression that
      there is a very strange mystery to be confronted here."

      "The point of interest for these early astronomers seems to have
      been the projected end date in 2012 A.D., rather than the beginning
      date in 3114 B.C. Having determined the end date in 2012... and
      calling it, they thus proclaimed themselves to be living
      in the 6th baktun of the Great Cycle. The later Maya certainly
      attributed much mythological significance to the beginning date,
      relating it to the birth of their deities, but it now seems certain
      that the placement of the Long Count hinges upon its calculated end
      point." [emphasis added]

      "In the book he co-authored with his brother Dennis [Invisible
      Landscape, Seabury Press 1975 and Harper San Francisco, 1993],
      Terence [McKenna] suggests that the position of winter solstice sun
      within 3 degrees of the Galactic Center in the year 2012 A.D.
      (a `once-in-a-precessional-cycle' event) may provide the
      eschatological end point for his theory of time known as TimeWave
      Zero. His end date was chosen for historical reasons and was,
      apparently, only later discovered to correspond with the Mayan end

      For the astronomers, <http://eclipse.span.ch/transit.htm> briefly
      describes Mercury and Venus transits. A transit, in this
      connection, is, "When Mercury or Venus passes in front of the Sun's
      disk as seen from Earth." "Mercury transits happen about 12 times
      in a century." The next ones are: May 7, 2003 . November 8,
      2006." This is, supposedly, no big deal, but transits of Venus --
      the planet about which the Mayans were particularly interested --
      are "a very rare sight, about 12 times per millennium!" The last
      one was in the 19th century, as there were none in the 20th
      century. Furthermore, the next one's coming soon: June 8, 2004 ,
      then June 6, 2012 (They come in pairs, eight years apart.) Several
      scholars have suggested that the 2012 transit of Venus is all part
      of the 2012 A.D. K-Mart Blue Light Special -- the ultimate "close-
      out" for bargain shoppers.

      For the Astrologers -- we have to be fair when it comes to giving
      equal time between the Astronomers and Astrologers! -- 12-22-2012
      is what might be called an interesting "natal chart". Of particular
      note is the formation of a "Yod" (the "finger of destiny", as
      highlighted in the figure). A Pluto-Saturn sextile (the "heavies" in
      Astrology) point the finger, so to speak, at Jupiter (the
      zodiacal "Santa Claus"). One esoteric branch of astrology claims
      that Jupiter is always highlighted at death of an individual (i.e.
      it's the "good news"). One can only wonder if the same might also
      apply as a species-wide event. Keep in mind that the Sabian Symbols
      for Pluto and Saturn in this case are: "An Angel Carrying a Harp"
      and "A Dentist at Work." You might want to stay tuned on this one!

      (5/9/5) Another point of view is provided at:

      And the possibilities continue -- or as some might observe -- run
      rampant. Perhaps the funniest aspect comes from some entrepreneurs
      at "radix", where in "a bid for the End-of-the-Worldcon", they have
      advocated Chichén Itzá as the place to be on December 21, 2012.
      Everyone is invited to, "spend your last Worldcon of this existence
      with us!" They go on to describe their accommodations: "Our three
      hotels, the Hacienda Chichén, the Mayaland, and Villas Arqueologicas
      are close together and convenient to Chichén Itzá's own airport.
      Swimming is available in any of the nearby cenotes." [Visa and
      MasterCharge are, presumably, still being accepted!] Then there's
      the "masquerade venue with adequate raked seating! Plus we'll be
      putting major programming in the Ball Court to avoid the expense of
      sound amplification." [Why exactly should we worry about expense?]
      Finally, they note that, "The center of science programming will be
      the observatory. Celestial readings will be taken throughout the
      convention to ensure that closing ceremonies exactly coincide with
      the end of time.

      "Dead dog party to follow."

      With a notable reduction in a sense of humor
      <http://mars2012.berkeley.edu> describes the "Mars by 2012"
      project, "a NASA-sponsored course offered through the Earth and
      Planetary Science Department (EPS 98/198). The course allows
      undergraduates to participate in ongoing research projects related
      to the problems and challenges humans will face in a manned mission
      to Mars." The website goes on to headline, "The Synergy Project
      [uniting] universities, industries, NASA [in] bringing humans to

      Is there, perhaps, a suspicion at Berkeley that being on Mars in
      2012 A.D. might be highly preferable to being on Earth at that time?

      Finally, Drunvalo Melchizedek
      <http://www.greatdreams.com/drun.htm>, details some of the
      metaphysical aspects of the event, but also includes how one might
      prepare for such an event. This is presented in slightly greater
      detail on the supposition that one always needs to close with an
      upbeat ending. This is the same sort of thinking that Tom Robbins
      in his book, Jitterbug Perfume, included, when he noted that the
      sign over the doorway to Hell read, "Lighten Up."


      Quoted from: <http://www.greatdreams.com/drun.htm>

      "So now that the `Time of Great Change' is here, what do we do?

      "Prepare physically? Physically means finding a place that feels
      safe and storing food and necessary equipment for up to a two year
      period. This may or may not be right for you. Understand the
      situation. First of all, this period of time you would be preparing
      for is before the change, not after. The idea that we are to
      prepare and wait, and then after to come out of the shelter and
      resume life after the change is misleading. Once the change has
      happened, the next world will not be visible to the old one. We
      will ascend into a new world on a different wave length where any
      physical preparation made on earth will be useless there. Just as
      in death, you cannot bring it with you. [emphasis added]

      "So the reason for physical preparation is to give one a safe place
      to make the transition without violence and struggle -- A calm place
      and time to meditate during the outer changes going on. If,
      however, you do not feel it is necessary. That is all right also.
      Spirit is forever. No matter what happens, you will survive. What
      is truly important here is your state of consciousness during this
      transition. Your consciousness can overcome any of the physical

      An essential requirement is "dropping the old consciousness of Good
      and Evil, which we must do in order to enter the new higher
      consciousness. The old consciousness sees itself as being inside a
      body and everything and everyone else as outside of itself. This
      way of seeing is [the way of Illusions]. The Hindus call it `Maya'.

      "Hermes of Ancient Greece once said, `As above, so below'. This
      quote has become famous, and is just now being proven by science.
      The macrocosm and the microcosm reflect each other. In the same way,
      another quote is important. `As within, so without.' The inside and
      the outside are connected. It is here, where the important work will
      be lived. To realize that what happens on the inside reflects to
      the outside -- and the other way around. This relationship is
      effected by our feelings. Fear creates a contracted state of
      being. Love creates an expanded state of being. When we are in
      fear and contracted, the outer world controls our inner world. When
      we are in love and expanded, the inner world controls our outer

      "So the key to interdimensional survival is to remain positive and
      in love with life even when the outer world may seem hopeless. Know
      the perfection of Nature. At the same time and equally important,
      know and see that Great Spirit/Nature is alive and conscious of
      you. Develop communication within yourself with God. An example of
      indigenous understanding of this is that of the Kahunas in Hawaii:
      Their belief in nature as alive and conscious.

      "The final key is to bring this `connection' with Nature into
      yourself. Let your inner child self emerge and `play' with Life.
      Marah Baba said it perfectly, `Be happy, don't worry.' Bashar said
      it in another way, `Be happy for no reason.' It is your childlike
      joy that will lead you home. Do you remember?"
