    A lot of things are being told about what is going to happen in 2012. This year is told by the old Mayas, a civilization of Mexico, as the end of an era. They had a calendar, made more than 5000 years ago, and it ends exactly in December 21st, 2012. There are books, websites, movies and documentaries about. Have you ever heard about it? What is your idea of what is going to happen?

    I imagine that at the very stroke of midnight on December 21, 2012....


    it will become December 22.

    I may write a book.

    I have read somewhere, or a friend told me, that 2012 is a significantmilestone during the transition from the Age of Pisces before the full flowering of the Age of Aquarius (I guess people are 'undecidedd' as to when exactly the new age is supposed to actually begin - some people have stated that it began as early as 1977 - others say it won't be here until 2050).

    I have a good friend who is very into all that stuff, but I have to admit I am not really very interested.

    As far as the 'REAL' significance of the year 2012:

    Don't quote me , but IMO, the year 2012 is extremely significant because it will occur immediately following the very last moment of the year 2011, and prior to the first minutes of the year 2013.

    Actually something historic will happen on the winter solstice of 2012 at 11:00am Greenwich mean time; our solar system will migrate to the other side of the equator of the Milky Way galaxy. The earth and our solar system has never been there. That's all. Just think of it, we will probably be here for it.

    I saw it on television, and then checked it on the internet. I think it's really cool.

    Maybe we should have a huge gay naked party in Australia for the event. We have over four years to prepare.

    In the year 2012, a momentous occasion will indeed occur! I will be exactly half as old as my dearest friend will be! She will be 56, and I will be 28! Weird!

    I remember learning about that in AP Spanish and it creeped everyone out. I also remember that the Mayans had predicted everything else correctly to the date - including the fall of their own empire.

    I had a client once who would not invest anything unless the Mayan calendar showed that the date was propitious.

    He wound up in a mental hospital, talking to unseen friends.

    Fitting.

    I've heard that the polar axis will shift, causing massive chaos in our technologies and the laws of physics as we know it. Perhaps the end as we know it?

    "approximately every 2,160 years (i.e. 1/12th of 25,920 years), the Precession of the Equinoxes appears to rotate the spring equinox from one constellation to another. Currently, we appear to be at the end of the Age of Pisces, and the beginning of the Age of Aquarius (hence the song from the musical and movie, Hair, “This is the coming of the Age of Aquarius...”). Note that the ages progress in retrograde motion, going in the opposite direction as the sun, which moves from Aquarius into Pisces into Aries, and so forth. By this reckoning, the Age of Aries lasted from approximately 2400 B.C.E. to 200 B.C.E. -- essentially the span of time of ancient Egypt."
    http://www.halexandria.org/dward207.htm

    "The Age of Aquarius simply means that we are leaving the age of Pisces and entering into the Age of Aquarius. This change in the Age happens every two thousand years - the last one coincided with the arrival of Christ. Alternative medicine, astrology, vegetarianism and other subjects previously considered weird are growing rapidly in popularity, and are all subjects associated with the sign of Aquarius."

    I LOVE THIS STUFF!

    And it will be an international bestseller and will be made into a blockbuster movie starring Tom Cruise and the Backstreet Boys.

    I will be 22 in 2012!

    "Of course, we'll all have flying cars, and wear silver jumpsuits, and no one will talk anymore 'cause we'll be able to read each other's minds... but the truth is, not much will change from 2008."

    Look Zim, I imatated Sandra Bullock! Lol! icon_biggrin.gificon_lol.gificon_razz.gificon_wink.gif

    I am shy icon_redface.gif, but maybe for this kind of event I could overcome my bashfulness. Imagining all the RJ guys in their birthday suits is getting me all distracted (I need to have a cold shower)! icon_razz.gif

    Nostradamus also said the world would end in 2012... do i believe it? hell no. think about it like this. the mayans sacrificed themselves to the sun god and filed their teeth to point, and Nostradamus was a nut bag. don't worry about it people. the only thing we should worry about is people taking this seriously and going crazy. lata peeps

    not to mention... the man who made the calendar that we use today made it 6 years ahead by accident. so technically speaking, the REAL 2012 has already passed. peace.

    They also strapped wooden boards to their head and suspended a little bead between their kids eyes so the ended up flat-forheaded and cross-eyed.

    They DID have a very elaborate knowledge of physics, astronomy and geometry (moreson than anyone else in the world at the time), as well as a calendar system more exact than our own.

    The calendar just simply ends and a new one starts.

    No END OF THE WORLD will happen, at least not from them, IMO.

    and the 12/12/2012 is based on their lunar calendar, not our gregorian, and the two do not really interchange.

    Yeah. Just because the mayans were 'savages' didn't mean they didn't have the most sophisticated knowledge of chronology and astronomy of their time. Also I read something somewhere about how the steps of their pyramids were related to their calendar. (I dunno, might be 365 steps or something, heh). Also they had different names for each day of the year I think.

    muchmorethanmuscle saidJust remember, according to the documentation on this subject, the moment of truth happens at 11am on December 21st 2012. It's not going to happen at the stroke of midnight on that date.


    I heard it was 11:11 am on 12/21/12. Does anyone have the seconds down because when the time approaches I want to be doing my favourite thing and sometimes timing is crucial???icon_wink.gif Oh and John, Australia would work for me.

    Funny thing you should say that. I had business at the University of Toledo and while I was there chatted with a professor of physics and asked him about that.
    He said the process would be rather slow and take many lifetimes, so we have nothing to worry about. In the future however, San Francisco will probably be at the north pole.
