The Possibilities of 2012 Apocalypse



The Possibilities of 2012 Apocalypse

With the world situation as it is, we can explore the many traditions, prophecies, and predictions that point to 2012 apocalypse as a potential end or turning point in human history.

The End of the Mayan Long Count Calendar
The most famous of the 2012 apocalypse predictions is the end of the Mayan Long Count calendar. The Mayan calendar can be pictured as a series of interlocking, concentric rotating
gears. When the smallest gear completes its cycle (1 day) the next outermost gear turns. The largest “gear” in the system, the baktun, is about to complete its final tick. It is well-established by historians that the 13th baktun is to end on December 21st, 2012. There is slightly more disagreement as to whether or not this baktun is in fact the final one. Before we address that final controversy, it is important to understand when the Mayan calendar began, and how it is mapped onto our calendar.

The start date of the Mayan calendar is established through astronomical and historical sources, as well as correlating established dates of the arrival of Spanish conquistadors and the existing native Long Count dates. The start date is widely accepted to be August 11th, 3114 BC. The end date of the 13th baktun, after ticking through all the smaller “gears", is none other than December 21st, AD 2012...the awaited and predicted apocalypse.

Time ticks by on the Mayan calendar through a series of five units of measurement, or the five “gears” alluded to earlier. The basic element is the kin, or 1 day. From there we tick up the other levels:

* 1 Kin = 1 day
* 1 Uinal = 20 Kin (20 days)
* 1 Tun = 18 Uinal (360 days)
* 1 Katun = 20 Tuns (about 19 years)
* 1 Baktun = 20 Katuns (about 394 years)

To take a random date, such as February 5th,1983, the Mayandate would be 12.18.9.12.8, with baktuns on the left and kins on the far right. December 21st, 2012, would be written as 13.0.0.0.0.

The Mayans count from zero, so the first thirteen baktuns would be denoted in the digits 0 through 12.Using the five digit arrangement shown above, time ticks by on the Mayan calendar from right to left, starting with individual kins, which after ticking by 20 times would tick
one Uinal and then reset to zero. These two cycles would continue and after 18 Uinals one Tun would click by. The iterations would continue with completions of each smaller cycle resulting in a tick of the next larger cycle up.

Some say that the baktun cycle actually ends at 19, and thus the December 2012 date is just the end of one great cycle, and the beginning of another, the 13th baktun. This is contradicted by the existence of creation myths, and the Mayan belief that the previous creation cycles lasted precisely 13 baktuns. John Major Jenkins, perhaps one of the most well-known students of the Mayan tradition, has the following to say about the thirteen versus twenty baktun cycle in his
book Maya Cosmogenesis 2012:

Schele’s argument that a twenty-baktun cycle had precedence over the thirteen-baktun cycle is not well founded, confusing what one seventh-century Maya ruler said about the nature of the Long Count with what the original creators of it intended. A repeating thirteen-baktun cycle is implied wherever Creation monuments have been found-for example, at Coba and Quirigua. Rather than looking at Classic Period examples to define the nature of the Long Count, we need to look carefully at who created the Long Count system, and where and when it arose.

Jenkins refers to ancient Mayan creation monuments as existence of the 13 baktun creation cycle. There have been four previous creation cycles according to the Maya, and we are nearing the end of the fifth. The total length of time for all five is roughly 25,000 years.
Jenkins also points out some more spooky astronomical synchronicities. The earth, as it rotates on its axis, has a distinct wobble. The wobble slowly changes and completes a cycle over a period of about 25,000 years. This wobble changes the angular alignment of the earth with the galactic plane. At the end of this cycle the solstice sun will align exactly with the galactic center. The end of the Mayan calendar, and the fifth cycle, and the date of galactic alignment with the solstice sun is Decmeber 21st, 2012.

In his article “The World Age Cosmology of the Maya Calendar End-Date in AD 2012?[11] he states:
The end-date of the 13-baktun cycle of the Long Count marks the precession-caused alignment of the solstice sun with the Milky Way, and based upon evidence in other Maya traditions including the Maya ballgame, king accession rituals, and the Maya creation mythology, there is every reason to believe that this was intentional.

So to many observers of the Mayan calendar, its end date perfectly coincides with an extremely rare astronomical event. Jenkins goes on in the same article to state that other civilizations have associated the solstice-galaxy alignment with major earth events:

Egyptian cosmology describes a Zero Time, or Zep Tepi, of 10,800 B.C. during which the gods reigned supreme and the foundations of Egyptian civilization were laid. This period indicates the previous time that the solstice axis was lining up with the galaxy. The ancient Vedic material with its World Age doctrine of the Yugas also points to a time some 13,000 years ago that was a Golden Age of light. Specifically, Vedic astronomy describes the cycling of the sun around a celestial origin point called Vishnunahbi (this would be the apparent motion of the sun around the zodiac resulting from precession), and implies that we are now approaching a turnaround point.

The coincidence, or synchronicities as some would say, between the Mayan calendar, galactic precession, and events here on earth is quite startling. But the Mayan scholars aren’t the only ones portending great change in 2012...apocalypse..!

2012 Nostradamus Predictions


Did Nostradamus Predict Doom in 2012 Apocalypse ?

Several respected Nostradamus scholars believe that the famous seer did in fact predict World War III around this time.

One of the more active proponents of a Nostradamus-predicted World War III in 2012 is Dr. Michael Rathford, author of the book The Nostradamus Code: World War III 2008-2012.

In his book, Dr. Rathford claims the between the years 2008 and 2012, World War III will erupt and transform the world forever. Nuclear bombs will be dropped, the Catholic Church will be ravaged and destroyed and the antichrist will arise.

Specifically, in Dr. Rathford’s analysis[12], war erupts in the middle east, ostensibly after Iran, or a similar nation, decides to drop a nuclear bomb on Israel. Israel responds in kind. Europe then interferes to protect precious oil supplies in this era when resources and food are so critical. This causes Iran, or the middle-eastern nation, to attack Europe with nuclear weapons, most of which land in Italy. The Catholic church is ravaged, and the Pope is forced to flee into hiding. The stage is set for the rise of the antichrist.

Rathford continues his depiction of the height of the war with volcanoes, earthquakes, floods and droughts, especially affecting the United States, which will bankrupt itself during this time.

The antichrist rises to power in the middle east, taking over Iran.

Rathford completes his cataclysmic war with a helping of the following, in chronological order:

* A communication breakdown between two superpowers leads to cataclysmic consequences.
* A third world leader causes significant problems.
* A war simulation in England backfires and results in real-world action.
* The US electorate system fails to produce a president, and civil war is narrowly averted through a new election.
* Rathford eventually wraps up his analysis of Nostradamus by stating that the current world will fall away, and a new enlightened world will take its place.

It’s important to understand that this is just one interpretation of the predictions of Nostradamus. Other students of the famed seer, such as John Hogue, don’t predict such a detailed turn of events. Hogue, however, has been on record saying that a third world war is predicted for the next decade.[13]

In October of 2007 The History Channel aired a program entitled “The Lost Book of Nostradamus."[14] In this two hour documentary the idea is put forth that a lost book has been discovered, and the illustrations depicted therein warn of great cataclysm, even the end of the world, for the winter solstice in 2012.

The show follows both the history and content of an obscure collection of illustrations, long hidden in the National Library of Rome. The book was inscribed with Michel de Notredame, or Nostradamus.

Within the book were several watercolor illustrations depicting strange events, and often symbolic objects.

The show claims the book was tucked away within the Vatican until such time as it should be discovered, and its secrets revealed.

The show interprets one picture toward the end of the book as showing the alignment between the solstice sun and the galactic center, scheduled for December 21st, 2012.

Ultimately, the show cannot, with certainty, attribute the book to Nostradamus, and ultimately, their interpretations of the images are just speculation.

Did Nostradamus predict the end in 2012? It is hard to say he did. But with all things Nostradamus, until the event happens, the prescience of his knowledge won’t be revealed.
Timewave Zero

Timewave Zero is a theory that suggests time, or rather the novelty of existence within time, follows a series of self-similar patterns, or a fractal. This timewave, so to speak, has exhibited a fractal series of peaks and valleys, and through calculation, reaches a singularity in 2012.

Terrence McKenna is credited with forming the Timewave Zero theory based on his correlations between the King Wen sequence of I Ching hexagrams and events in world history.

The theory is somewhat difficult to grasp, but the key points are that the I Ching, when graphed, displays an uncanny similarity to the novelty of events throughout human history. Furthermore, this pattern shows up again and again when applied to smaller sections of time, such as the history of a civilization, or even the events of your day.

McKenna himself did not predict doomsday in 2012, but rather thought that some monumental event would forever transform humanity.
Christian Prophecy

The world of Christian Prophecy has grown very crowded over the last two thousand years ago. The earliest Christians looked to the Apocalypse of the Apostle John, written in his exile on the Island of Patmos after divine revelation. This mysterious book is the most comprehensive biblical treatment on matters of the end, but additional prophecies appear in several books of the old testament, and also in the eschatological discourse of Jesus in the books of Matthew, Mark, and Luke.

No prominent Christian groups predict with any sort of certainty the return of Christ in 2012. But nearly all traditions look around the world today, behold the abominations therein, and wonder if we are nearing the end.

In the world of Catholic eschatology, which has been studying the Scripture for two thousand years, there exists some variation in beliefs or predictions regarding the end times. While the basic premise is the same, when one tries to pluck out very precise interpretations variations do occur. There is, however, some commonly believed events that will precipitate the end of history(from EWTN, full note at[15]):

The Catechism provides us with a general order of events at the End [CCC 673-677]. Chronologically they are,

1. the full number of the Gentiles come into the Church

2. the “full inclusion of the Jews in the Messiah’s salvation, in the wake of the full number of the Gentiles” (#2 will follow quickly on, in the wake of, #1)

3. a final trial of the Church “in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth.” The supreme deception is that of the Antichrist.

4. Christ’s victory over this final unleashing of evil through a cosmic upheaval of this passing world and the Last Judgment.

As Cardinal Ratzinger recently pointed out (in the context of the message of F├ítima), we are not at the end of the world. In fact, the Second Coming (understood as the physical return of Christ) cannot occur until the full number of the Gentiles are converted, followed by “all Israel.”

Approved Catholic mystics (Venerables, Blessed and Saints, approved apparitions) throw considerable light on this order, by prophesying a minor apostasy and tribulation toward the end of the world, after which will occur the reunion of Christians. Only later will the entire world fall away from Christ (the great apostasy) and the personal Antichrist arise and the Tribulation of the End occur.

The books Prophecy for Today by Edward Connor, and Vincent Miceli’s The Antichrist are two good sources for end times discernment.

In more recent time the notion of a Rapture, a great tribulation, and a thousand year reign of Christ on earth has become popular. This theory, largely promoted by John Nelson Darby in the 19th century, is relatively new given the two thousand year history of the Church.

This idea has been expanded by many evangelicals, with some discerning very specific predictions based on the Scriptures in Ezekiel, Daniel, and Revelation. For example, Joel Rosenberg, author of The Ezekiel Option, believes the war of Gog and Magog, as spoke of in Ezekiel, will come to fruition as Russia and Iran attacking Israel.

The most comprehensive (and popular) of these scenarios was illustrated in the wildly popular Left Behind series, and similar series such as The Christ Clone Trilogy. Both of these series start off with the Rapture of Christians into heaven and a seven year period of tribulation here on earth. The Antichrist rises to power, deceives man, and triggers the return of Christ who reigns for a thousand years.

Despite the differences between older Christian eschatology and more recent interpretation, there are several consistencies within all Christian traditions, namely a great deception caused by the Antichrist that leads many souls astray, a trial of ultimate evil, and the return of Christ.

An excellent treatment of the end times is achieved in the novel Father Elijah by Michael D. O’Brien. The novel follows a Catholic priest who is a convert from Judaism, and his role in the final days. It is a beautiful work of literature.
Peak Oil

Perhaps the most staggering of all scenarios, and by far the one most realized in today’s daily headlines, is the notion of peak oil.

Peak oil is the idea that worldwide oil reserves are limited, our use of them has skyrocketed over the last century, we’re running out, and as we do, civilization is going to collapse. While the complete and total collapse of industrial civilization may seem preposterous, the peak oil theorists have done their homework. This is one idea that is actually unfolding in today’s headlines and has already impacted your life. Up for debate among peak oil theorists is when exactly the peak occurred or will occur, how fast society can replace its source of energy (if it even has time), and what the ramifications on our lives will be.

The sources of oil are drying up. Worldwide oil production, depending on the source of data, has either just peaked, or is about to peak. According to Kenneth S. Deffeyes, oil production stopped growing in 2005[16]. But oil consumption hasn’t. Basic economics states that when demand for a product rises, yet supplies don’t, the price of the product will go up. The price of oil has skyrocketed to heights never before seen. Even adjusted for inflation, the price of oil is higher than it has ever been. For most of the 20th century oil maintained a 2008 inflation-adjusted price between $20 and $35 per barrel. In the late 1970s oil briefly ran over $100 per barrel in 2008 dollars. But over the last few years prices have soared, with oil hitting $145 in July 2008[17].

Oil consumption is greater now than ever before. World population is greater now than ever before. These two items combine to form quite a problem. Consider what has happened to oil prices just over the last couple of years as supplies have just peaked. What will happen to the price of oil when supplies are half of what they are today, yet consumption and demand are even greater? If just a small setback in supply can have shocks on the price, what about dramatic setbacks in supply? Just passing the peak in oil will have enormous ramifications in all aspects of life.
Everything is Tied to Oil

You might not care about the price of oil. Maybe you don’t even drive a car, or you work at home, or you live in the city and walk everywhere you need to go. In our modern society, everything is tied to oil. Matt Savinar, who runs the site Life After the Oil Crash, points out quite well how everything we do in this modern world is tied to petroleum. The vast majority of our food supplies are subject to pesticides and fertilizers that come from oil. They are harvested using machines that not only run on oil, but nearly all of their parts are manufactured (and the raw materials mined!) with the aid of oil. Food is packaged and shipped to your supermarket, often across thousands of miles, using oil-powered transport. Savinar successfully makes the case that modern medicine, water distribution, and national defense are all powered by oil. Plastics? Yes. Computers? Yes. Ironically, even alternative fuel implements such as solar panels and windmills rely heavily on a traditional petroleum-based manufacturing process.[18]
The Collapse of Civilization: Blackouts in 2012

So if the engine that powers the world is breaking down, what happens? In short, a lot of bad things could happen. In a paper entitled “The Peak of World Oil Production and the Road to the Olduvai Gorge,” Richard Duncan describes the lifetime of industrial civilization as being limited to 100 years. For us, the 100 years began roughly in 1930, and will come to a dark closure around 2030. The Olduvai theory predicts widespread, permanent blackouts to begin in 2012.[19]

To envision what this new oil-parched world might look like, Savinar quotes journalist Paul Salopek[20]:

…the consequences would be unimaginable. Permanent fuel shortages would tip the world into a generations-long economic depression. Millions would lose their jobs as industry implodes. Farm tractors would be idled for lack of fuel, triggering massive famines. Energy wars would flare. And carless suburbanites would trudge to their nearest big box stores, not to buy Chinese made clothing transported cheaply across the globe, but to scavenge glass and copper wire from abandoned buildings.

2012 Metaphysical Predictions

Metaphysical predictions

2012 is sometimes claimed to be a great year of spiritual transformation (or apocalypse). Many esoteric sources interpret the completion of the thirteenth B'ak'tun cycle in the Long Count of the Maya calendar (which occurs on December 21 by the most widely held correlation) to mean there will be a major change in world order.[who?]

Accordingly, several eclectic authors claim that a major, world-changing event will take place in 2012:
The 1997 book The Bible Code claims that, according to certain algorithms of the Bible code, an asteroid or comet will collide with the Earth.
The 2006 book 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl by Daniel Pinchbeck discusses theories of a possible global awakening to psychic connection by the year 2012, creating a noosphere.

Other prophecies and apocalyptic writings and hypotheses for this year include:
Terence McKenna's numerological novelty theory suggests a point of singularity in which humankind will go through a great shift in consciousness.

2012 A New GeoPolitical Order

A New Geopolitical Order

If you’ve not been living in a cave since the millennium you may have noticed that the world economic picture is changing. This is not necessarily a bad thing, as everyone has the right to pursue, and hopefully obtain, prosperity.

Countries such as India and China are rising in prominence. The Gulf states, long rich on oil, are increasingly becoming a world center of business. Just look at Dubai, along with China, they’ve invested billions into America’s financial institutions. This was made easier and cheaper by America’s subprime mortgage collapse.

At the 2008 World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, billionaire George Soros claimed the United States is at the end of a cycle and its currency will be dumped around the world. Soros said we’re at “the end of a 60-year period of continuing credit expansion based on the dollar as the reserve currency.”

The result? The world is ready for a new economic order, and according to Nouriel Roubini, America looks like an emerging market, not an economic leader. Further sentiment was expressed by the head of Kuwait’s national bank that America needs to get used to being bought up by foreign sovereign wealth funds, in other words, foreign governments.[9]

To further complicate the world stage, as if in anticipation or in a test of US dominance, Russia and China have both announced preemptive nuclear strike policies. For Russia, this may very well entail creating mobile units with nuclear strike capabilities distributed throughout the country.

Perhaps in a time of peace this would just seem like bluster, but both Russia and China are aligned in direct opposition to the west in key hair-trigger geopolitical situations.

The Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been going since time immemorial. On one side you have the secular nation of Israel, carved out of the British Mandate after World War II, and home to many diverse groups throughout history, and home to some of the holiest sites in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. On the other side you have the Palestinians, many of which are unwilling to accept the existence of the state of Israel. It is a widely held, but false belief, that prior to Israel a sovereign nation of Palestine existed, and therefore modern Palestinians have a right to it, while Israel is squatting, but no such nation has ever existed. The name Palestine was given to a broad swath of territory within the British Mandate.

The British Mandate itself was carved from the Ottoman Empire following World War I. Under the Ottoman Empire the region was home to diverse groups, living in largely tribal communities. Jews and Arabs have lived in the area for ages.

So what we have is an area home to diverse groups, historically living in tribes, and subject to various world powers, now reacting, and fighting, over areas of individual sovereignty.

The situation is not going to improve anytime soon. Unfortunately, forces aligned against the existence of the nation of Israel include Syria and Iran. Pro-Syrian factions in Lebanon aren’t helping things either. Iran is backed by the Russians, and to some degree, the Chinese. Israel is backed by the United States, and to some extent, the nations of Europe.

The entire region is a powder keg. Iran has repeatedly stated that Israel should be wiped off the map, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad routinely declares that the “Zionist regime” will come to an end.

Iran has promised a massive retaliation if Israel or the United States attempts to bomb away its nuclear capability. Russia has stated that it would use nuclear weapons to defend itself and its allies.

Taiwan has proved itself to be a hair-trigger as well. China has repeatedly warned the United States about getting involved if a conflict breaks out over Taiwan. In fact, in 2005 a top Chinese general warned that if US weapons targeted Chinese territory or military assets, they would have no choice but to respond with nuclear weapons.[10]

2012 Year of The Dragon



2012: The Year of the Dragon

Far off, unknown, beyond the range of thought,
scarce reached by gods, the years' rough haggard mother,
stands a primeval Cave in whose vast breast,
is Time's cradle and womb. A Serpent encloses,
the Cave, consuming all things with slow power,
and green scales always glinting. Its mouth devours,
the backbent tail as with mute motion it traces,
its beginning. At the entrance Nature sits,
the threshold-guardian, aged and yet lovely,
and round her gather and flit on every side Spirits.
A Venerable Man writes down immutable laws.
He fixes the number of stars in every constellation,
makes some of them move and others hang at rest.
So all things live or die by predetermined laws...
When the Sun rested on the cave's wide threshold,
Nature ran in her might to meet him; the Old Man bent
grey hairs to the proud rays. [1]

Claudian (c. 370-408), Roman poet

Of all the world's monsters, the dragon appears to be the most universal. Dragons appear in the early literature of the English, German, Irish, Danish, Norse, Romans, Greeks, Babylonians, and Egyptians - and in oral tales from every inhabited corner of the globe.

The word "dragon" is derived from the Latin dracon, which came from the Greek word for serpent, spakov. Spakov can be traced to the Greek aorist verb, spakelv meaning "sharp-sighted one" (a reference to the perceived good vision of snakes), and is related to many other ancient words to do with sight, such as darc (Sanskrit for see), derc (Old Irish for eye), torht (Old Saxon) and zoraht (Old High German) which both mean clear, or bright.

The distinctions between words that describe dragons and snakes are often blurred, and are to some degree interchangeable. The old German word for dragon, "lindwurm", literally means "snake-worm" The ancient Anglo-Saxon word "wyrm" has been translated as meaning any of "dragon," "serpent," or "worm". An English folktale which dates back to the early fifteenth century tells of Sir John Lambton battling "the Worm." The original story makes no mention of this "worm" having legs. Early pictorial representations of dragons were almost always shown as large snakes, but from the sixteenth century onward images associated with the Lambton story are of four-legged dragons. We must consider ancient dragons to be more like giant serpents, and less like the more modern fantasy images that we know so well from role-playing games and books like The Hobbit.
The Bible interchanges the words dragon and serpent liberally.

"When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child."

"Then from his mouth the serpent spewed water like a river, to overtake the woman and sweep her away with the torrent. But the earth helped the woman by opening its mouth and swallowing the river that the dragon had spewed out of his mouth."

(Revelation 12:7)

[ A good Biblical description of a dragon can be found at Job 41 ]
The themes of chaos and disaster are often linked to dragon lore, as well as the processes of fertility and re-birth, and the revolutions of the cosmos.

2012 Where History Ends

2012 Where History Ends

2012 apocalypse
Some of the greatest myths, are yet to happen - Michael Tsarion

- 2012 and the "Age of Revealing"
- The Destruction of Atlantis - The War of the Gods
- The Genetic Manipulation of Humankind
- The Fall of Man
- The True Origins of Evil
- The "Armageddon" Factor
- The Decline of Politics and Religion
- The Reasons for & Significance of the Present World Crises
- The Occult History of America
- The Subversion of the Spiritual Destiny of America
- The Rise of the Anti-Christ (who is it?)

- What the "Prophecies" of Nostradamus Don't Tell Us
- The "Photon Belt," the "Earth Grid" and the galactic alignments of the Next 10 years

In Program Two, of the "Origins & Oracles" series, Michael Tsarion explains exactly why the world is in the present state of decay, and who it is that really rules from the top of the "power pyramid." We discover that earth's crime-soaked history has been manipulated by powerful secret societies with bloodline connections to ancient alien visitors who crossed their own DNA with that of earth's indigenous inhabitants. According to Michael Tsarion's astonishing thesis, some of these original "Fallen Angels" are secretly interred beneath the ground in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in other locations around the globe. These "undead" vampiristic kings of old have been feeding off the death and mayhem, the pain and fear of human beings for millennia and their servants, upon the earth's surface, have orchestrated wars, assassinations, and a climate of perversity and debauchery to feed their dark masters soon to arise again from their unholy repose. This arising is forced due to the approach of powerful constellational alignments and the coming of an "Age of Revealing" referred to in ancient Maya texts, and in the Book of Revelations. It is of paramount importance that each and every human being discovers what these alignments will mean, what the future holds, and what the world's ancient scriptures are warning us about. This riveting investigation into the occult history of the world will open your eyes and allow you to make sense of the agendas of government and religion, the strange preoccupations of the media, and much of what will transpire in future years.

Additionally, Michael also reminds to us of the importance of cleansing the "inner temple." He reminds us that a toxic mind creates a toxic society. It is schizoid people who inevitably create a schizogenic society, and who are responsible for raising-up the sadistic "Orwellian" regimes which prey over the good and the free. Michael delineates for us the age-old connections between mind and world, between microcosm and macrocosm, so that we are again empowered with proactive and sustainable solutions. Michael insists that we must re-learn how to put our own inner houses in order before our efforts at overcoming our inhuman adversaries can be successful. Other stratagems are merely akin to "re-arranging the furniture on the Titanic," and have not been working. Therefore, it is time for humanity to show zero-tolerance for all the false paths and leads, and to have the truth about change.

2012: What do I do?

2012 may come and go like any other year, but odds are the amount of turmoil in the world will continue to increase. Joining a cult, freaking out, or selling all of your worldly posessions is probably a rash and paranoid move. However, being calm, smart, and prepared is a good idea. Without regard to 2012, or any of the possibilities listed here, every family should be prepared for natural disasters, extended power outages, and a lack of government services.

VENUS & A MAGNETIC CHANGE

On 12-29-05/12-30-05 we listened to John Major Jenkins talking about what is going to happen in 2012, specifically December 21, 2012 apocalypse when the Mayan calendar ends.

I have dreamed of 2012 and the Mayan calendar before. What I dream does not relate to what other people say about 2012, except that I dream in numbers frequently.

After I shut off the radio I had this dream:

DREAM: I was in a warm climate somewhere. Out the window of the house I was in, I saw 2 plane crashes, one after another, and then saw a strange-shaped cloud in the sky that suddenly went scudding across the sky really fast. The cloud changed so that it looked like a Mayan astronaut on a magic flying carpet - all in white.

I ran home because I heard my daughters screaming. When I ran into the room, the girls shouted that the Christmas tree was falling over and they were trying desperately to keep it up by propping it up with wooden canes with handles on them. I couldn't get the tree to stand up either and leaned it on the round dining room table.

On the table was a blue table cloth I had knitted with a circular pattern on it. The pattern consisted of 3 stacked rows of numbers and right/left glyphs in block style. I knew this represented the Mayan calendar At the innermost part of this calendar circle was a small scissors shape and I knew I should use a 'thame' to divide the stack of numbers and when I used the scissors and drew it down the stack of numbers, the numbers that were 1 - 1 became 2-2
and the ones that were _ - 1 became 1 - _. The ones that were _ -1 became 1 - _ .

Joe came rushing in and I showed him what happened to the Mayan calendar cycle and that it had shifted and doubled its numbers. He looked at it and then realized that the third row over
should be shifted as well. What as ||||| - _ should be _ - ||||| and the lines that were _ - ||||| should be _ - |||||.

So he physically shifted them over one by one leaving them looking like big holes _____ and I knew I was going to have to mend the holes so that it once again became the shifted pattern it was supposed to be.

Joe was all excited that we had discovered what had happened to the Mayan calendar cycle in 2012. It wasn't ending, it was shifting and doubling. Joe said, "I'm going to have to call George Noory and go on the radio and tell him this."

End of dream:

This related to another dream I had of the Mayan Calendar: http://www.greatdreams.com/26.htm

1-14-2001 - I had spent an hour knitting an afghan which was very complicated. My eyes were getting tired, so I decided to lay down and take a nap. The dream was very strange, related to
the knitting I had just been doing ... but the numbers in the vision and the way I was knitting was NOT normal.
Women who know how to knit will understand this better than men will. I knitted a cast-off of 26 stitches on a swatch of material. In the next row I cast back on 26 stitches so that it created a long narrow rectangular window, rather like a button hole. I also cast-off one stitch in one row, then cast on that same stitch on the next row, thereby making a square hole. The dream showed me that it was labeled 'camera'.

Then a box was created (which is impossible to do in knitting) of 26 cast off stitches, a number of rows knitted up, then cast back on 26 stitches so that a square box was created and it was held open by a stick on the diagonal from corner to corner, left bottom to upper right.

I wasn't even going to write this down, but the numbers keep nagging at me and why was that one stitch called, 'camera'?

NOTE: After researching the number, it appears that the '26' represents the long count and the '1' represents the short count of the Mayan calendar system.Some Mayan groups froze their New Year to July 26, “when Sirius rises in that part of the world.”

On January 1 at midnight, Sirius culminates, reaching its highest point in the sky, at the only time of year when it is visible all night long.

NOTE: I wondered why the planes fell out of the sky at the same time the Mayan cloud scudded across the sky - and that could be caused by a sudden pole shift. That would probably explain the Christmas tree falling over making the girls scream, but I was obviously oblivious to what had just happened. It didn't affect me physically.

I found this: 'in camera' (adverb) Synonyms: SECRETLY, by stealth, clandestinely, covertly,
furtively, hugger-mugger, privately, stealthily, sub rosa, surreptitiously

Thus the word camera is not just a noun ... the name of an object we take for granted . Perhaps there is something else going on. the divine Name Jehovah Elohim, we should note that, in Hebrew, Jehovah adds to 26, the number of letters in the english alphabet and the value of GOD in the LUX code. In the NOX code, the Holy Word of Tantrick Buddhism, OM, as well as the Lost
Word of the Master Masons as MABN, or ABMN, also add to 26. The Hebrew transliterations of these two secret Words possess the same value as our Word of the Law, Thelema, 93.

Long Count

Another component of the Mayan calendar is called the Long Count. It is made up of the larger cycles of the Mayan calendar and seems to extend to infinity. It is composed of a 360-day cycle called tun, a 20-tun cycle called katun and a 20-katun (400-tun) cycle called baktun. There are also larger cycles calculated by multiplying the baktun by twenty, and the resulting cycle by twenty and so on.
In the astrological use of the Long Count, a 13-tun cycle, a 13-katun cycle and a 13-baktun cycle are also counted. Notice the similarity between the 360 days of the tun and the 360° of a circle and the zodiac. Don't confuse the 360-day tun with the 365-day Haab. The 360-day tun is composed of complete 20-day Daykeeper cycles (18 x 20 = 360), while the 365-day Haab is
not.

What is relevant to us today is that we are approaching the end of a 13-baktun cycle. When people generally say that the Mayan calendar ends in 2012, they are referring to the end of this
125-year cycle that began in 3114 BCE. There is some controversy over the starting and ending dates of this particular 13-baktun cycle.

In order to better understand why some believe that the Mayan Long Count actually ends in 2012, it is necessary to recognize certain astrological and galactic cycles. There exist astrological cycles that map the "light" of creation, the "seedings" from the darkness and the interplay between the light and the dark that is fundamental to creation itself. The cycles of the Sun and Venus together are a key light cycle. Eclipse cycles are a fundamental cycle of darkness for the
Earth. The interrelationships between the cycles of light and dark reveal the ongoing creation of life on the Earth and the evolution of the Earth within the Galaxy.

A major Sun/Venus event occurs in 2012, as do two profound solar eclipses. The coming together of a cycle of light and a cycle of darkness at the time of the conclusion of a unique series of galactic alignments hints at the underlying reason why the conclusion of this Mayan 13-baktun cycle is sometimes called the end of the Mayan calendar.

In 2012, there will be the rare occurrence of a transit of Venus. This is when Venus passes directly in front of the Sun from our perspective on the Earth. It is a perfect alignment between the Earth, Venus and the Sun. The last transit of Venus occurred in 1882, around the time of the rediscovery of ancient Mayan sacred sites. Transits of Venus occur on the average twice every 120 or so years.

See: http://www.greatdreams.com/poleshift.htm

The Mayans used the stars and planetary cycles to keep time since the stars and planets can pretty much be counted on to remain the same from year to year. Many cultures did this - keeping track of the rising and setting of the moon, sun, and various planets and stars over time, marking them with standing stones such as Stonehenge and others around the world like that.

Here are some examples:

Venus: According to the Manuscript of Serna, a missionary report from central Mexico, the natives "adored and made more sacrifices" to Venus than any other "celestial or terrestrial
creatures" apart from the sun. The Manuscript also tells us that . "The reason why this star was held in such esteem by the lords and people, and the reason why they counted their days by this star and yielded reverence and offered sacrifices to it, was because these deluded natives thought or believed that when one of their principal gods, named Topilzin or Quetzalcoatl, died and left this world, he transformed himself into that resplendent star."
.
The Maya equivalent of Quetzalcoatl was Kukulkan. Both the Nahautl and Yucatec names translate as "quetzel bird-snake" or "plumed serpent". Kukulkan was a post-Classical deity, perhaps introduced to the Maya by the Toltecs, who were influential at Chichen Itza and other centres in the northern Yucatan. Bishop Landa, writing in 1566 reported that "[With] the Itzas who settled Chichen Itza there ruled a great lord named Cuculcan, as an evidence of which the principal building [pyramid] is called Cuculcan. They said he came from the West, but are not agreed as to whether he came before or after the Itzas, or with them. . . and that after his return he was regarded in Mexico as one of their gods, and called Cezalcohuati [Quetzalcoatl]. In the Yucatan also he was reverenced as a god, because of his great services to the state, as appeared in the order which he established in the Yucatan after the death of the chiefs, to settle the discord caused in the land . "
In Maya myth, Venus is the companion of the sun. This no doubt reflects the fact that Venus is always close to the sun in the sky, rising not long before sunrise as morning star or after sunset as evening star. In the Classical period (250-900 AD), Venus was associated with Hun Ahaw, who guided his twin Yax Balam, the sun, through the Underworld. Hun Ahaw later became
Hunaphu in the Hero Twins myth cycle in the post-Conquest Popul Vuh. Translator Dennis Tedlock interprets these myths as an account of the apparitions of Venus from heliacal rise as
morning star, through disappearance beneath the night time horizon, to rise again as evening star. See "The Chinkultic disk" for more about the Hero twins

X

The association between the sun and Venus appears to date back to the pre-Classical period. A huge pair of jaguar masks decorated a temple facade at Cerros in about 50 BC. According to Schele and Freidel, the lower masks represent the sun at each horizon; the upper masks symbolize Venus as morning and evening star.

The Venus table in the post-Classical Dresden Codex (c. 1200 AD) begins with heliacal rise of the planet on the date 1 (hun) Ahaw in the sacred almanac known as the tzolk'in. But the post-Classical deity most closely associated with Venus is Kukulkan, the Maya counterpart of the Aztec/Toltec culture hero Quetzelcoatl. He is illustrated in the Dresden Codex Venus table. However, the table actually includes a whole pantheon of Venus deities. Kulkukan is portrayed as only one of four Lords of Venus at heliacal rise. There are also four Lords of Venus as morning star, and Venus Lords for each of the other apparitions of the planet. More about the Dresden Codex Venus table and Venus deities

" I want to pay full attention go the planet Venus. As you know, it takes 243 days to make an entire circle around the sun. With this number, many codes can be broken. My intuition drew me straight to the number that shows the shifting of the Zodiac. I divided this number by the orbit
period of Venus and came to the amazing conclusion: 25,920 divided by 243 = 106.66666. "

Patrick Geryl relates the number 106.66666 to the 2012 Apocalypse. After a lot of calculations, on page 247, he says, "I found it! This was exactly what the Bible predicted. The number 66666
indicates that the end of an era has been or will be reached. And Venus is the main code in it!"
"my attention was drawn to a chapter about the period of the orbit of Venus. I thumbed through it - maybe I could discover something interesting, you never know.

Suddenly I felt as thought I had been struck by lightning. What I saw that the period of the orbit of Venus was not 243 but 224.7 days. the number 243 was mentioned beneath the orbit period, and involved the number of days Venus needs to rotate on its own axis. Our earth only needs one day to do this, but Venus takes a lot more time. It turns so slowly that it takes over a Venusian year to make one rotation - the Venusian day is longer than its year. ... This led me to discover something incredibly important, you will understand in a minute. "

" Since 1964, radar observations have provided another point of view, proving that the rotation
lasts 243 days and runs backwards! ,,,,

"1) The codes prove that the number 243 is important and was well known by the people of Atlantis.

2) The number 25,920 shows us the precession of the earth.

That means that after 25,920 years, the earth has made one retrograde rotation around its axis. Each year, the earth rotates 3,333 seconds less around its axis, which amounts to 86,400 seconds (or one day) after 25,920 years. This is a similar code to the one of Venus because the movement of Venus is opposite of the earth. It takes Venus 243 days to turn around its axis in reverse mode to the earth. That is the reason why these 243 days were found amongst their code calculations. The earth and Venus have a common point of contact, the orbit period lasts one day in 25,920 years in earthly time and 243 days in Venus time! They couldn't have
chosen a more brilliant point of departure.

3) The orbit period of Venus can only be registered by a

sophisticated technological apparatus. Did the people of

Atlantis have such equipment? If they did, the implications are

enormous, but I cannot find any other explanation. Furthermore,

we know now that they had knowledge about solar magnetism, and

the sunspot cycle, for which you need at least telescopes and

probably other equipment. And what is more, you need precision

clockwork to measure the orbit period of Venus and the earth,

as well as to fix your position...... continuing: The Venus

table in the Dresden Codex gives us a clear view of the ritual

Maya calendar, showing the positions of Venus in the sky. This

Venus table refers to 65 cycles of 584 days, which means 37,960

days all together, equal to `46 of the total number of cycles

of 260 days of the Maya calendar, as well as to 104 of the Maya

solar years of 365 days.

In Chapter 18, on page 254, Patrick Geryl refers us to the

number 20, also prominent in Maya time references:

He writes: "The number 20 in the calculations of the solar

magnetism: 68, 328 x 20 - 1,366,560 = code number The Dresden

Codex for the Maya sunspot cycle.

"68,302 x 20 = 1,366,040 = the number that refers to the 20th

cycle in which the sunspot cycle switches poles. All these

numbers show us very clearly the source of this number 20. In

this case you still don't believe me, divide 576 by 50

invisible days and the result is: 576 divided by 50 = 11.52.

When you now multiply this by 1000, you get the exact interval

of the previous crash!

He continues: " There were still the eight days during which

Venus disappears behind the sun. When I multiplied eight by the

small "Holy Numbers' of the Maya and the Egyptians, I obtained

the number of the shifting of the Zodiac and the orbit period

of Venus. Now I know both numbers refer to Venus.

72 x 8 = 576
73 x 8 = 584

"Once again, this proved that the codes were related to each

other. The period of eight days when Venus disappears behind

the sun indicates that Venus and the sun are closely connected.

Venus refers to the bygone switches of the magnetic field of

the sun, and also the big one to come, which will cause the

catastrophe on earth.

"I found one additional connection: Venus makes 13 orbits

around the sun in eight years. This was once more a remarkable

reference to the previous numbers already known.

13 x 8 = 104. 104 is a well-known Mayan number. "

After many more number calculations, all relating to Venus and

the Sun, he concludes that in 2012, we are going to have a

major crash catastrophe on earth because it has happened

previously.

Some time ago, in January, 2000, I wrote about the number nine

which I dreamed about several times. This also fits into the

time cycle of the Mayans:

http://www.greatdreams.com/nine/nine.htm

In ancient Greece, 9 was the number of the Muses, patron

goddesses of the arts. They were the daughters of Mnemosyne

("memory"), the source of imagination, which in turn is the

carrier of archetypal, elementary ideas to artistic,

realization in the field of space-time.

The number 9, that is to say, relates traditionally to the

Great Goddess of Many Names (Devi, Inanna, Ishtar, Astarte,

Artemis, Venus, etc.) as matrix of the cosmic process, whether

in the macrocosm or in a microcosmic field of manifestation.

The reason for the suppression of her image by a clergy

interested in the claims only of a divinity heavily bearded,

therefore, can be readily surmised; but why the same company of

priestly doctors so artfully concealed in their document an

unmistakable notice of their own knowledge of her power awaits

interpretation.

The profundity and sublime majesty of the suppressed mythology

can be appreciated best by way of two apparently unrelated

clocks, one, the ultimate clock of outer space, and the other

of inner space - respectively, the astronomical precession of

the equinoxes and the physiological beat of the human heart.

Regarding the first; the slow westward motion, in the course of

years, of the equinoctial points around the beltway of the

zodiac (the vernal equinox, for example, moving from the sign

of Aries, where it had been before the birth of Christ, through

Pisces, where it is now, toward Aquarius, where it will be in a

couple hundred years )

NOTE: that date is highly controversial: See AQUARIUS and AGES

This complete cycle of the twelve zodiacal signs exactly 25,920

years, which term is known as a "great" or "Platonic" year. But

if we divide 25,920 by 60 (which is the ancient Mesopotamian

soss, or basic segesimal unit of astronomical measurement,

still used in the measurement of circles whether of time or of

space), the quotient is 432. Moreover: 2+5+9+2+0 = 18.

And regarding the second, the inward clock: I have read in a

popular book on physical education that "A conditioned man, who

exercises regularly, will have a resting heart rate of about 60

beats per minute or less . . . Sixty per minute time 60

minutes, equals 3600 beats per hour. Times 24 hours, equals

86,400 beats a day.

NOTE: In another article read just moments ago, it was stated

that the heart rests in between beats for 9 hours a day.

It is strange that in our history books, the discovery of the

precession of the equinoxes should be attributed always to the

Greek Hipparchus, second century BC, when the magic number 432

(which when multiplied by 60 produces 25,920) was already

employed in the reckoning of major cycles of time before that

century. "

See: The Number 432 by Joe Mason
See: The Code of the Ancients

Along with this subject comes this fitting dream:

9-13-98 - DREAM - The dream started out with a vision of a

clock-like symbol which resembled a rounded diamond-like shape

with the largest point up, down, and to both sides. These

points all had feminine names. There was a dark man involved

also to prevent us from getting all the way around the Zodiac

clock.

I woke up and went back into a dream in which I was at home at

my 16th St. house. It was going to rain and I rushed inside the

house to get a gauge to hang up to measure the rain because the

prediction was for 71 inches of rain.

I hung up the first part of the gauge which was a

rectangle-like block plaque with a slot on it on which I

balanced what looked like a small book which looked like a

diary to keep records in. There was a name written on the book.

(I can't remember what it was) A strong mist began to fall as I

rushed back to the house to get the gauge tube and my mother

held open the door for me because I had to hurry if I was going

to catch all of the rain which I knew was going to get a lot

heavier.

End of Dream

Sounds rather Deluge-like to me!!!!

2012 PROPHECY OR NOT ?

1-12-2012 is such a special subject that I like to pick special times to discuss it when possible.

In just a few hours time the light reflected by the moon will be halted as that magnificent orb is swallowed into the shadow of the Earth. This is to be the last total eclipse of the Moon visible from this location until 21-12-2010. To me this seemed a most opportune moment to deal with another great light that is being slowly obscured by the shadows of misunderstanding and ignorance.

I am referring here to the now rather famous Mayan Calendar. I can only hope that as with the Moon’s submergence into darkness, what has been happening with the calendar will also prove to be temporary. Hopefully I can clarify this line of thought a little more here as we progress.


The end of the Mayan calendar in the year 2012 has become intrinsically linked to various prophetic writings of late. This is mainly due to channelled information being made available in books and web-sites all over the world. Though I do believe channelled wisdom can be a genuine source of help in these difficult and troubled times, we should be careful to keep it separate from physical evidence. Too often researchers either latch on only to the solid physical evidence, or just the voices of ethereal beings heard via certain gifted persons. My own position is that the two can help us understand the times we find ourselves living in, but only through careful discernment and even more careful integration.

For me the Mayan calendar data is a non-prophetic source of wisdom regarding future events. Calendars track time, they also track events in time that are cyclical. Whether those events are artificial mind constructs such as Halloween or more solid natural happenings like the Solstice. Often we see people posting to 2012 groups and sites that the Mayans were talking nonsense, that it’s impossible they could of known the future, and that if they had why would their civilisation have fallen. This comes from a grave misunderstanding, and sheer ignorance, understandable perhaps however as this is hardly subject matter taught in schools or openly discussed in the broader public domain.

Lets clarify the difference between reasoned prediction and prophetic prediction regarding the year 2012. We can reasonably predict that the month of July in 2012 will be warm here in my country, and that December will be cold. Does this mean that we here are prophets, and that upon the occurrence of this happening we will be seen as having supernatural powers on our side?

The answer is of course no, rather we know that based on the past observations of Earth’s seasons we can reasonably deduce future weather and climate patterns. That is because, like many functions of the planet, these patterns work in a cyclical fashion. They repeat again and again with only marginal variance during fairly large spans of time. If I were to state that in the year 2012 aliens would arrive, and state that my certainty came about through a mystical vision, or some kind of communication with higher levels of existence, then this would indeed be prophecy and its fulfilment make me a prophet of sorts.

The Mayans as a people were not prophets, not to say none of them were but certainly their major system of plotting future events was not reliant upon prophets. If that had been the case why use over 20 specific calendars intermeshing in a most brain hurting fashion, churning out masses of data on cyclical phenomena?
Surely all that would have been needed was a large central temple in which the prophets would sit, occasionally emerging to give some decree about troublesome or fortunate upcoming events.

Before anyone tries to argue that this was the function of the temples that have indeed been found in Central America, let me just remind you that these have been shown to be places of scientific observation, jungle based observatories for Mayan astronomers mapping the precise cycles of the various stars and planets. Once again we see the laborious investigation of cyclical phenomena not the investiture in supernatural phenomena.

21-12-2012 should be seen as a prediction based on solid experience of past observable events and cyclic patterns, this was clearly the absolute focus of Maya science, indeed the central focus of their culture and cosmology. What people should be asking is not whether the Mayans predicted the end of the world, whether there will be a new calendar or whether the Mayans were inclined toward mysticism as much as science.

The question should now be obvious to anyone, just what the heck were the going to all of this trouble to track?

What could of happened in the past that was such a big deal it caused an entire nation to abandon research into many areas we see as important, to focus wholly on this one task?

The Mayans of course did have great interest in more esoteric matters, they had a pantheon of Gods and at times accredited supernatural powers to certain persons as well as to animals and objects. The trouble is that modern western 2012 writers are sometimes too quick in amalgamating these two distinct aspects of ancient Mayan society and allowing the mix to colour the scientific basis for concern regarding the calendar end date. We can synergise the two in the same books but only if we are careful to clarify our reasons to do so. It is essential to show that in the end, the Mayan Calendar is not giving us a doomsday prophecy comparable to those of the now near legendary French prophet Michel De Nostradame. Nor is it the same as the prophecies of the various indigenous peoples around the world who have come out to state expectations regarding the year 2012 due to their own mystical traditions.

As a mystic myself, with hundreds of strange events under my belt, I would be in no hurry to remove the mystical elements of 2012 period information provided by any culture. If data regarding the time we live in and the near future comes from supernatural and esoteric sources I know to study it very carefully as it may well be of great help. Yet the mundane logical side of me always checks first which category the data is really coming from, even myths and legends often turn out to be simply warped physical historical events rather than magical matters.

Though I argue the Mayan Calendar ending is not a 2012 prophecy, there are however some sources to be considered that most certainly do fall under that category. These are where we shall venture next.
