As January 2012 commenced, the counting down to what some believe and fear as the inevitable conclusion of human existence has begun. While some others are taking a far less dramatic or gloomy view of December 21, 2012 supposedly predicted as the end-of-time by ancient Mayas.
Religions often prophesy of humanity suffering a terrible cataclysmic end. Such sensational drama seems to appeal to human natures intrinsic impulse to know and be assured of the future, often inspiring fear and fascination at the same time.
Maya scholars and scientists on the other hand, counter such beliefs on the basis of missing evidence to prove such prophetic thinking – maintaining that the Maya calendar merely represents the conclusion of a unit of time.
Pop culture uses apocalyptic fever as yet another game, that of sorting out activity options for the end of time; an individual for example can:
Book a room at a former monastery turned luxury hotel & spa on the Amalfi Coast .
Take the Belize Maya Heartland Tour 2012 visiting ancient cities and sites.
Ride the new stand-up Apocalypse roller coaster at Six Flags D.C. or the Drop of Doom at Six Flags Valencia CA.
Attend the ‘Rave to the Grave’ dance music event in Oslo , Norway .
35,000 dollars reserves a share at an underground shelter network for long term survival of future catastrophes and for the one percent a cool 1 million buys a half-floor unit (2 million for a full floor) survival condo at a former missile base in Kansas, just to name a few.
Fun & games aside momentarily, interestingly, interpreters of the ancient hieroglyphics do suggest it predicts the arrival of a deity “linked to warfare, famine, and social strife”. From the looks of things currently, this deity is and has been ruling with great blood and horror on this earth long before now.
What further insightful proof into human imposed suffering could be required – the continuation and increase of which easily causes the human family to wish for a speedy end. Ending all war, famine and social strife by implementing the Plan of the WUF in 2012, would be the revelatory calm and happy ending worthy of revelry to end all 2012 revelries and indeed be a welcomed ”conclusion of a unit of time”.
When December 21, 2012 comes and goes without global human conclusion, remember, the WUF plan will still be here waiting to be put into action as the true beginning of Human Happiness…
Maya the WUF be with you-
