Mayans have left us feeling uncertain about our future. They have even been right about other events too, such as they said that their civilization would be over run by foreigners from over seas. It has even been suggested that the Mayans new there would be world wars. They are fantastically good at astrology, so if the Mayans say the world will end in 2012, you best believe it.
However the Mayans have not made specific predictions about 2012. Possibly this could be because of our small knowledge on the Mayans history. A majority of their documents were burned, when they were invaded by the Spanish. There are only a handful of scriptures and books left, so there is nothing certain to what happens when the Mayans calendar ends.
We are left to differ what will happen in 2012. When we are left to differ many opinions arise of what may or may not happen. There are two common suggestions that continuously arise with, complete different ends of the spectrum,
- The world will end through mass catastrophe and devastation, causing things to come to an end, and leave the ones who do survive living a basic, hard life.
- The world will begin again with a drastic positive change that will make us live a life of peace and harmony, making our lives better than they are now.
Despite predictions, Mayans didn’t believe in endings, only new cycles of change, so everything that comes to an end, will cause a new beginning to happen. So that is why we are led to believe that either way we will have some kind of drastic change for 2012.
Mayans also believed in the Cosmos, this is a highly developed philosophy, they saw it as the true mother of all things. They believed that the mother of all things was in everything through to humankind, animals, even the plants. It is believed that on 21st December 2012 is when we will be re-connected with our natural cosmos.
New age philosophers say that, this will happen by the sun being in line with its natural position forming a gateway, between the universe and everybody on earth. If the positive change is what we get then it is said that our fear, hatred and jealousy will be gone and we will be purified, living life in harmony and peace.
Philosophers, on the flip side say, that if there is a negative change, we will experience a dooms day, some say it could be due to a nuclear war, others say it’s down to a biblical judgment day. More extreme opinions state the Earth will just disappear and be no more.
Opinions will continue to differ until the judgment day arrives, and we come to the reality of what will really occur and what that particular day will bring us.
