Well, some fellas on another site were discussing 2012 and it got me thinking (re-thinking) this situation. It has been developing for eons, and the theories have been hatched for some time – mostly over the last 10 years.
Everyone has a theory.
And I want to try and piece them together. So, this is step I. 2012 is the year the world is supposed to end, or change. This belief is based on the Mayan Calendar, its long count and short counts corresponding to celestial phenomena, has marked Dec. 21st, 2012 as a particularly significant moment. To find out more, read this excellent introductory piece by John Major Jenkins.
As for an introduction to some theories, here is something to watch to get your mind thinking a bit about the importance of 2012 and the issues surrounding it. This could put things in proper perspective.
In the future, I will be writing more on the subject of 2012 and bringing the theories and data here as I find the time. I have been inspired by the discussion on the board to round up this topic.
