WHAT IS 2012? WHAT CAN HAPPEN AROUND THIS YEAR?
Here are several theories, from scientific to spiritual and mystical.
All are unanimous in saying that the world as we know it may have its days numbered(Last edited 06/11/2009)As the year 2012 approaches, scientists, religious and mystical world of the chase after clues left by civilizations and prophets of the past will be explaining how the end times. In many ancient cultures the year 2012 is marked on calendars as the 'Armageddon', the 'Apocalypse', the 'end of the world', 'doomsday', 'the end of a cycle' and, in the most optimistic ' the year end and this was another, better, will start. ' Mayans, Egyptians, Celts, Hopi, Nostradamus and many prophets, and Chinese Buddhists, WebBots, and scientists from many different religious beliefs say that the world as we know it may have its days numbered.
Here are some theories of what may occur in 2012, before or since. Some theories are scientific, some are spiritual and mystical. It is recommended that common sense in reading.
According to Mayan cosmology , the Earth has five major cycles or eras, each with about 5125 years. For them, four have passed away. "The four previous cycles ended in destruction. The Mayan doomsday prophecy refers to the last day of the 5th cycle, ie, December 21, 2012." says Steven Alten. The fifth and current cycle will also end in destruction? What will unleash it? The answer may lie in a rare cosmic phenomenon that the Mayans predicted to more than 2,000 years. "The Mayan prophecy for 2012 is based on an astronomical alignment. In December 2012, the solstice sun will align with the center of our galaxy. It is a rare cosmic alignment. Happens once every 26,000 years," says John Major Jenkins, author of Maya Cosmogenesis 2012.
Every 26,000 years the Sun aligns with the center of the Milky Way. At the same time is another rare astrological phenomenon, a change in the earth's axis relative to the celestial sphere. The phenomenon is called precession. The exact date of all is December 21, 2012."The Earth on its axis oscillates slowly changing our angular orientation relative to the galaxy. A complete precession takes 26,000 years." John Major Jenkins says.
But what actually happens on the fateful date of December 21, 2012? For many days will be the annihilation of the human race due to a reversal of the poles of the earth . How is this possible? Due to disturbances in the sun's magnetic fields that generate massive solar storms , affect the polarity of our entire planet. Result: The Earth's magnetic field will reverse immediately, with catastrophic consequences for humanity. Violent earthquakes will demolish all buildings, feeding colossal tsunamis and intense volcanic activity. In fact, the Earth's crust slide, throwing continents thousands of miles from its current location.
Until it is developing new maps geography land after the physical changes that supposedly occur. It is speculated that Europe and North America will suffer a displacement of thousands of kilometers towards the North, and its climate will become polar.
To the surprise of many, in 2008 appeared a Crop Circle (crop circles) indicating the planetary formation in 2012 and perhaps wanting to alert us to something that will occur on 21/12/2012.
Others say that major disasters are generated due to passage of a star / comet / planet near Earth. It would be the "abomination of desolation" of Jesus, the "abomination of desolation" of the prophet Daniel, the "great burning star with a torch, called Wormwood" the Apocalypse of John, the "big star", "the great king of terror" "the monster" or "the new celestial body" of Nostradamus, the "star Intruder" or "planet sanitizer" Ramatis of the "planet hickey" cited by Chico Xavier, or "Planet X" sought by astronomers, or " 12th Planet "by Zecharia Sitchin, or" Nibiru / Marduk "of the Sumerians, or the" Hercolubus "class of Gnosis.
The 148th edition of UFO Magazine , December 2008, ran an extensive article on the supposed star Nibiru, called Nibiru: Blade Runner, the university professor and author Salvatore De Salvo, a consultant with UFO, defending its existence and the imminence of a disaster on Earth upon its passage, expected in 2012. While this view has been challenged by catastrophic Ufologist Marco Antonio Petit in the 151st edition of UFO Magazine , March 2009, Salvatore returned to ratify the warning of the approach of Nibiru in a paper published by the site of UFO Magazine in April 2009 . In the program Fantastico Globo March 1, 2009 and Nibiru 2012 the theme was approached very quickly. As one might expect from a TV station and intended to open large mass (common people) unfortunately the subject was treated with derision and seen as a "Hoax" (rumor spoofed), without there being any in-depth investigation by the issuer (the porque2012.com site appeared briefly in this report).
Sounds crazy, but maybe it is true that the Sun has a companion death that threatens life on our planet. The sun's hypothetical companion was first suggested in 1985 by Whitmire and Matese, who named the Nemesis, the goddess of vengeance . It would be even possible that this "Death Star" was already present in some star catalog, and no one had noticed anything unusual. Among the supporters of the existence of Nemesis geologists who are betting that every 26 or 30 million years have been mass extinctions of life on Earth, alongside the emergence of a large impact crater (or several of them). Geological records indicate indeed an enormous impact crater in the Caribbean Sea, with 65 million years, from the late Cretaceous, coinciding with the end of the reign of the dinosaurs This event would have opened the way for mammals our ancestors to take care of the planet and our own species could evolve. One or more comets would have hit the Earth, they argue, wrapping it in a cloud of dust for months.
The idea of a giant planet, unknown to pass close to Earth or even shocking it may seem absurd, but science indicates that we have to concern ourselves with. We're talking about asteroids. An asteroid (2003 QQ47) of just over one kilometer in diameter would be the way to Earth and could collide with the planet on March 21, 2014, according to astronomers from the UK agency responsible for monitoring potentially dangerous objects for the planet.Another risk would be the asteroid 2004 VD17 discovered on November 27, 2004, which is about 500 meters long and one billion tons. NASA said the 2004 VD17 could collide with Earth early next century, and the impact would cause the release of 10,000 megatons of energy (equivalent to the explosion of all nuclear weapons on the planet) causing mass destruction the planet. The asteroid 2004 VD17 is with the greatest chances of coming into collision with the Earth. The chances of a collision with Earth on May 4, 2102, were evaluated on occasion as a possibility in a 3.000.Novas observations and calculations further increased the risk to "less than one per 1,000." Another asteroid that puts fear in scientists is called Apophis . According to scientists, there is a small possibility it into a collision course with Earth in coming decades. Recently, NASA said it is not able to detect and destroy asteroids.
For NASA scientists the 2012 date will be marked by violent solar storms and the total melting of the North Pole. For governments and the UN is a terrible thing to happen to our planet , so it was opened in early 2008, the "doomsday vault"aimed to house seeds from all known varieties in the world of plants with nutritional value. In the 14th UN Conference on climate change in early December 2008, the Polish Minister of Environment, Maciej Nowicki held that "humanity with his behavior has pushed the Earth system to its limits." "Continue Anyway provoke threats of an intensity never seen before: enormous droughts and floods, devastating hurricanes, pandemics of tropical diseases and even armed conflicts and migration unprecedented", launched by asking negotiators who do not "fall prey to particular interests in this dark time we modify the dangerous direction that humanity has taken. " See here the full story. Reviews the international financial community dominated the president's speech to the General Assembly of the United Nations (UN) in June 2009, Miguel d 'Escoto, the opening of the conference on global crisis said: 'We must prevent the crisis (financial) turn into humanitarian tragedy, and humans end up like the dinosaurs. ' . Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon warned in the third UN Conference on Climate Change which, he says, global warming is putting the world an abyss . "We are stepping on the accelerator and walked into the abyss," Ban reported.
The journal Science published an article on June 26, 2009 stating that the scientists are unanimous in saying that we are not prepared for the next solar maximum will happen between 2012 and 2013. A large solar storm could bring to the frightening consequences humanidade.Danos the power grid and communications systems could be catastrophic, the scientists say, with effects that can lead to uncontrolled government of the situation. The forecasts are based on a major solar storm of 1859 that caused telegraph wires to enter short in the U.S. and Europe, leading to serious fires. It was possibly the worst in 200 years, according to a new study. With the advent of power grids, communications satellites and today we have much more at risk. "A contemporary repetition of the event  socio-economic disturbances cause significantly more extensive," the researchers concluded.Every 11 years, when the sun enters its more active phase, it can send powerful magnetic storms that shut down satellites, threaten astronaut safety, and even disrupt communication systems on Earth. An article in the American channel Fox News said: "A brutal sun tempestadade could 'delete' the U.S. for months" . To make matters worse, NASA scientists reported in 2003 that were discovered "holes" in the Earth's magnetic field, which may indicate that our protective shield against solar storms will not support the solar maximum will occur around 2012. Recently a study showed that the sun bombards the earth with bursts of particles - the so-called solar wind - even when its activity appears to be low. If this is true, the Earth can suffer major impacts in the face of a period of solar minimum.
For WebBots something devastating will happen in 2012. According to its creators, the WebBots seem to indicate an event bound to plasma discharge that could reach our planet by 2012. This might suggest a gamma ray burst or some event connected to solar storms that could hit us by 2012 (as already mentioned before). It is also speculated to be around 2012 that the Yellowstone mega volcano will erupt and destroy half of the U.S., and dramatically affect the climate of the whole planet. Also it is speculated that the U.S. East Coast could be hit by a major tsunami caused by a volcanic eruption near the Canary Islands. This event, according to some scientists. also reach the northern coast and northeastern Brazil .
Experts believe that can happen in the coming years the dreaded "Tokai Earthquake" in Japan, a mega earthquake of catastrophic proportions. Another real possibility that terrorizes scientists is the occurrence of a mega deadly earthquake in Los Angeles, called the "Big One" . According to some scientists, there are signs that this inevitable event approaches.
Some scholars believe that 2012 is the deadline for we find a solution to the inevitable end of oil that may occur in the coming decades. If this is not done the world could enter into a huge global recession and subsequent economic collapse. The nations will fight among themselves for the last drop of oil. This could trigger a war on the planet and the end of civilization as we know, these scholars warn.
The 'Bible Code' seems to indicate that the end times came after the attacks of September 11, 2001 and would culminate in the fall of an asteroid or nuclear war in 2012 . As for the Timewave Zero date of December 21, 2012 marks the balance, the end of the old paradigms, the new beginning, where nothing is like it was before.
Scholars of the "Lost Book of Nostradamus" are interpretations of what would be an acknowledgment of Nostradamus on the period from 1999 to 2012. According to these interpretations, Nostradamus seems to warn us about an event of great magnitude that can occur around 2012 on our Planet.
For some Tibetan monks from the date of 2012 will mark the "end of days", occurring in about an atomic war this year. Still according to this monk, the world is not totally destroyed, because there is an extraterrestrial intervention.
The date of December 21, 2012 is also the magic date for the Hopi Indians of Arizona. "The Hopi prophecy is an oral tradition of stories that, in the words of the Indians, predicted the arrival of the white man, the world wars and nuclear weapons. They also provide the time when mankind will eventually move to the 'fifth world' " , Richard Boylan reports on Mother Earth Crying: Journal of Prophecies of Native Peoples Worldwide. The Hopi prophecies hide their jealously the general public, sometimes to the point of prosecuting those who disclose.However, it is known that the Hopi calendar essentially combines with the Maya: both mark the beginning of the Fifth World, or Age for 21/12/2012
Some sources suggest that we are currently nearing the end of Kali Yuga (Iron Age) , which according to Hindu tradition, is the latest and most negative of four evolutionary eras of the great cycle Manvantaric. There was a Golden Age (Satya Yuga), but as time progressed, the planet entered a downward spiral and negative quality of life in each Yuga (Age or Era) has gradually become removed from knowing the truth and natural law . The Kali Yuga is characterized by intoxication, prostitution, killing animals, destruction of nature and the gambling addiction. This is the age where sense gratification is the goal of existence, where it is believed only in what is seen, where there is no mercy, and where God has become a myth. There are wars, addiction and ignorance are dominant and true virtue is practically nonexistent. The leaders who rule the earth are violent and corrupt world and has become completely perverted. According to the precepts of Hinduism, Kalki, the 10th and final avatar of Vishnu, will come riding a white horse, wielding a flaming sword with which to defeat evil and restore Dharma, beginning a new cycle, a new Golden Age or Satya Yuga. In the "Brahma-Purana Vaivarta" which is a Hindu religious text, Lord Krishna tells Ganga Devi that a new Golden Age will start 5,000 years after the beginning of the Kali Yuga and that this will last 10,000 years. This prediction of the arrival of a new world is also predicted by the Mayans. The Mayan calendar began with the 5th Great Cycle in 3113 BC and ending on December 21, 2012. The Hindu Kali Yuga began on 18 February 3102 BC There is only a difference of 11 years between the beginning of the Kali Yuga and the beginning of the 5th Great Cycle of the Maya. The ancient Hindus mainly used lunar calendars but also solar calendars. If the normal lunar calendar equals 354.36 days per year, then the moon would be 5270 years since the start of Kali Yuga as of December 21, 2012. There are about 5113 years of solar 365.24 days per year since the beginning of the Kali Yuga to the Winter Solstice of 2012. Thus, the Mayan calendar seems to corroborate the Hindu calendar. Either by solar or lunar years, according to ancient Hindu scriptures, seems to have reached the time of Krishna's prophecy come true. A golden age may well begin in 2012. It is impressive because both calendars began at about the same time there are about 5000 years ago and both predict a new world altogether, a Golden Age that will begin about 5000 years after the beginning of the same. And it is still amazing because, historically, these two ancient cultures did not have any contact. Again there seems to be some truth behind it.
To Howard Menger, famous contacted by extraterrestrial beings of 50 years, the et's would have told him they would return to Earth in 2012 . Interestingly, the Maya priest Chilam Balam says the same. He said the end of this katum, ending in 2012, will mark the return of the Supreme Godhead to Earth , heralding a new era in human affairs. The Mayan Sacred Book of Chilam Balam, says: "At the end of the last Katun (1992-2012) there will be a time when we are immersed in darkness, but soon the sun will come the men bringing the signal future. Awaken the earth from the north and west the ITZA awake. " We can see that this Mayan prophecy is compatible with religious awaiting the return of the messiah or the scholars of the flying saucers awaiting the great extraterrestrial contact. All say that this event will take place as soon as possible.
The religious and spiritual hope to the "doomsday" or "Armageddon", the spiritual separation of the "tares and wheat" or "final battle between God and Satan" , which will be with the arrival of a messiah (or in a more of modern aliens ) and total collapse of human civilization based on materialism / selfishness ( collapse of the economic system ) and initiate a "new world", a new civilization turned to spiritualism, love and brotherhood. Along the same lines of "doomsday", others say that the arrival of extraterrestrials will occur after a cataclysm caused by the passage of the "second sun" (as discussed earlier).
Scholars of the Mayan calendar as the spiritual Fernando Malkun also theorize that the date will be marked by a shift of consciousness: the end of fear .
Do not forget that the spiritual vision of the "doomsday", the material side (disasters, money order, materialism, consumerism, etc.) is placed in the background. Not that this will not happen. They say yes, but what will separate one from the other world is a changing consciousness : consciousness selfish and individualistic "I am human, I belong to Planet Earth" will be born and die universal consciousness' I am the incarnation of a spirit, belong to Universe. " Recalling that for many Spiritualists Spiritualists and the reprobate in the "final judgment", ie those that do not change the consciousness before the latest "evidence" will be exiled to Nibiru / Planet X and have to start from scratch the whole process of reincarnation , while approved for the new earth will be free from memories of the past and any trace of selfishness and individualism. Will the new inhabitants of the earth, the "world of regeneration," as the spiritualists say.
As seen, many have their version of what will occur around 2012. But if you notice you will see that there will be the "end of the world," but to "a kind of world," of our civilization, society, race. As often happened, a new breed developed more will come after the extinction of the old.
We do not doubt that our civilization is on the verge of collapse. Never before were immersed in so many crises at once: human overpopulation, poverty and social inequality, global financial crisis, food crisis, energy crisis, shortage of water and oil, frantic consumerism, terrorism and threats of nuclear war, the resurgence of deadly diseases , political scandals, falling governments, climate change and the dramatic increase of natural disasters and the extinction of species, and the worsening violence and civil unrest. Anyone who must use intelligence to understand that, regardless of the 2012 prophecies come true, our society is striding toward the cliff. Just be a good observer and realize that. As absurd as it may seem, this is not even a little irrational. If you go back in time to see great civilizations collapsed when they reached the pinnacle intellectual and technological. In one fell swoop they disappear from the earth, leaving unanswered questions and a great mystery.
