I’m sure you remember, because how could you not? December 21st, Year 2012, the end of the world, ancient Mayan prophecy…Any of this ringing a bell? On December 22, everybody realized that the world hadn’t ended, and we all went on with our lives. Movies like “2012” with John Cusack would move on into cultural obscurity.
Offering us an opportunity to try and explain the whole debacle to our children when they see it in the “Free To Stream” category. But maybe something did happen, right under our noses. Haven’t you noticed the world is just a little crazier lately? Let’s explore the possibility that in the year 2012, the world really did end.
Let’s Not Panic
First of all, it should be said that the Mayans didn’t explicitly predict the end of the world in the year 2012. There were no etchings of a fiery apocalypse. Instead, the Mayan long-count calendar simply cycled through. Meaning that the year 2012 was the end of the age.
Suggesting that instead of the world ending in brimstone, we simply stride right over the line and start over. One may draw parallels here between the dawn of the new Mayan age and the astrological zodiac dawning of the Age of Aquarius. Since then, however, all manners of strange things have happened.
For example, in 2013, Pope Benedict XVI resigned as pope, which hasn’t happened voluntarily in almost 800 years, so that’s weird. Then, in 2014, Malaysian Airlines Flight 370 disappeared over the Indian Ocean with no trace of it ever to be seen again, so that’s not cool. Totally normal stuff, right? Nothing to see here, definitely…?
Oh, and an unexpected meteor exploded over the Chelyabinsk region of Russia. Not just any old meteorite. No, this was the most massive meteor to enter Earth’s atmosphere in at least a century. In fact, its the only known meteor that caused a multitude of injuries, with the official number hitting (sorry, bad pun) almost 1,500.
The meteor flashed brighter than the sun, exploding 18.5 miles high in our atmosphere and with force 33 times larger than the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima, and nobody saw it coming. Literally, nobody knew it was going to happen, even though there was a near-impact asteroid that was being monitored on the other side of the world.
What’s Up with the Weather?
After the year 2012, the weather also started freaking out way more than usual. In 2015, Hurricane Patricia became the most intense cyclone ever observed in the entire Western Hemisphere, with maximum sustained wind speeds of 215 mph.
Then, of course, there’s the fact that every year since 2012 is among the ten hottest years ever recorded (though 2012 itself is not), with maximum heat being reached in 2016. In 2015 the warmest temperature ever recorded in Antarctica topped out at 63.5 Fahrenheit. The new age the Mayans were talking about must be cosmic summer (that’s a bad joke, but I’m too proud to delete it).
Back to the Year 2012
Oh, and then the most powerful country in the world started being run by someone most famous for being a reality game show host. Which on its surface, is extremely weird. It’s hard to argue that anybody would have seen that coming. All this has to do with the year 2012 changing of the ages predicted by the Mayans. And then the Chicago Cubs won the 2016 World Series, which was completely unexpected and blew everyone’s minds.
That’s because the Cubs hadn’t won a championship since 1908, 116 years earlier. Clearly, the Mayans are Cubs fans. Just recently, the government said, out loud, that yes, there probably are UFOs flying around out there. They went on to admit that they really don’t know what they are. WHAT? The world certainly has been weird since the year 2012.
Maybe The Mayans Were Right about the Year 2012
I don’t know, maybe I’m overreacting, but it just feels like the whole world is going crazy and the only thing I can turn toward to explain this is that maybe, just maybe, the Mayans were in the right ballpark. Perhaps we are experiencing a new age. Because of that, we’re all cosmically adjusting to our new post-year 2012 existence.
The rules of the universe that we played by before no longer seem to apply. If it is true that if we think something may happen and it does, it’s likely the result of massive shifts in cosmic energy. The end of an era predicted by the Mayans came full circle on December 21, the year 2012. So, let’s stop thinking weird stuff and get on the new positive cosmic energy age of Aquarius.
