From and with thanks to Ben Neal at The Sacred Art of Language:
This will be my final post in this series. When I posted Part 1 on January 1st of this year, I had so many topics and ideas burning in my brain, that it could have easily filled 20+ posts. As the months went by, my enthusiasm waned a bit, and my interests, my time and energy were directed elsewhere. But I would still like to say a few words to end the series properly, and maybe provide some semblance of closure.
So the year 2012 is drawing to an end, the much anticipated date of 12/21/2012 has come and gone… and here we are. What has happened? What, if anything, has changed? Was it all just a bunch of hype?
Well the world didn’t end, that’s for sure - there was no meteor impact, no alien invasion, no tidal waves, no apocalypse, no Rapture. And there was no drastic shift in consciousness, no spontaneous Awakening or Ascension of the human species. Here in KC the sun was shining, the workers were working, the shoppers were shopping and life went on as usual – the solstice was a pretty normal day. And so was the next day, and the next…
But all around the world, record numbers of people came together with their hearts, minds and intentions focused on Love, Light, enlightenment and evolution. In homes and in churches, in temples, ashrams and yoga studios, and outside under the wide open sky, people everywhere were praying, and holding a collective vision of a New Age of peace on Earth.
We didn’t all simultaneously leap into a new state of consciousness with the flip of a switch, but the kind of intention and group focus that we witnessed on 12/21 has tremendous power. You can be sure that the effects are rippling out through space and time in ways that we do not comprehend.
Just because we didn’t change dimensions, doesn’t mean we didn’t change direction.
I know that change in direction will become increasingly clear as the days go by. Evolution is not instantaneous. The eternal Now is always transforming and renewing itself, and that transformation is from within, outward. What we have concieved within, as a dream and a vision, is shaping and forming and birthing itself and will in due time blossom into manifestation…
The inner growth and transformation of individuals has never been so profound and so widespread. The massive unrest we are witnessing around the world shows that society too is changing and transforming. Advances in science, computers, information and communication are rapidly converging on the point known as the ‘technological singularity.’ The road ahead is new territory and things are getting very interesting…
We are in metamorphosis, my friends!
For me, 12/21/2012 will always be a symbol of the New Dream: the day that humankind collectively stated our intention to live in Light, Love and Peace. The course is chosen, the way is clear. Hold the vision, keep the faith, and walk the path. Live, laugh, love, evolve!
Thanks for reading. Merry Christmas everybody! Hope you had a wonderful time with your loved ones, and I wish you all a blessed and happy New Year!

Mayans mark end of 5,125-year calendar cycle
The Associated Press
Dec 21, 2012 5:35
Ceremonial fires burned and conches sounded off as dawn broke over the steps of the main pyramid at the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza Friday, making what many believe is the conclusion of a vast, 5,125-year cycle in the Mayan calendar.
Some have interpreted the prophetic moment as the end of the world. The hundreds gathered in the ancient Mayan city, however, said they believed it marked the birth of a new and better age.
Genaro Hernandez stood with his arms outstretched to the morning light, all clad in white, facing the pyramids’ grey stone, to welcome the new era.
“This world is being reborn as a better world,” said Hernandez, a 55-year old accountant who wore an expression of bliss.
No one was quite sure at what time the Mayas’ 13th Baktun would officially end on this Dec. 21. Some think it already ended at midnight. Others looked to Friday’s dawn here in the Mayan heartland. Some had later times in mind. One thing became clear to many on the site by Friday morning: The world had not ended.
“Wait until the dawn on the 22nd; that is when we Maya will speak,” Nobel Peace Prize laureate Rigoberta Menchu had warned at an earlier symposium.
Calendars may be days off
Mexico’s National Institute of Anthropology and History even suggested that historical calculations to synchronize the Mayan and Western calendars might be off a few days. It said the Mayan Long Count calendar cycle might not really end until Sunday.
Whatever the details, the chance to mark epochal change seemed to be the main concern among celebrants drawn to the Yucatan peninsula.
Hundreds of people were scattered around the vast central plaza of Chichen Itza, some kneeling in attitudes of prayer, some seated with arms outstretched in positions of meditation, all facing El Castillo, the massive main pyramid.
Ivan Gutierrez, a 37-year-old artist who lives in the nearby village, stood before the pyramid and blew a low, sonorous blast on a conch horn. “It has already arrived, we are already in it,” he said of the new era. “We are in a frequency of love, we are in a new vibration.”
But it was unclear how long the love would last: A security guard quickly came over and asked him to stop blowing his conch shell, enforcing the ruin site’s ban on holding ceremonies without previous permits.
What nobody was calling the moment was the end of the world, as some people in recent years have interpreted the meaning of the end of the 13th Baktun — despite the insistence of archeologists and the Maya themselves it meant no such thing.
“We’ll still have to pay taxes next year,” said Gabriel Romero, a Los Angeles-based spiritualist who uses crystal skulls in his ceremonies.
If the chanting and dancing of a crystal skull ceremony held Thursday weren’t enough to end fears of an apocalypse, scientists chimed in, too.

Bill Leith, the U.S. Geological Survey’s senior science adviser for earthquake and geologic hazards, said that by late Thursday, absolutely nothing out of the ordinary had been detected in seismic activities, solar flares, volcanos or the Earth’s geomagnetic field.
“It’s a fairly unremarkable day on planet Earth today, and in the last few days,” Leith said. “There are no major eruptions going on.”
There had been about 120 small earthquakes and a moderate temblor in Japan, he said. “That’s very much a normal day.”
Still, there were some who wouldn’t truly feel safe until the sun sets Friday over the pyramids in Yucatan peninsula, the heartland of the Maya.
Mexico’s best-known seer, Antonio Vazquez Alba, known as “El Brujo Mayor,” said he had received emails containing rumours that a mass suicide might be planned in Argentina.
He said he was sure that human nature represented the only threat Friday. “Nature isn’t going to do us any harm, but we can do damage to ourselves,” he said.
Authorities worried about overcrowding and possible stampedes during celebrations Friday at Mayan ruin sites like Chichen Itza and Uxmal, both about 1 1/2 hours from Merida, the Yucatan state capital. Special police and guard details were assigned to the pyramids.
No signs of pending doom
As Friday’s dawn began sweeping around the globe, there was no sign of an apocalypse.
Indeed, the social network Imgur posted photos of clocks turning midnight in the Asia-Pacific region with messages such as: “The world has not ended. Sincerely, New Zealand.”
Average residents of the Yucatan, where the Mayas invented the 394-year calendar cycles known as baktuns, the 13th of which ends Friday, were pretty upbeat about the day.
Yucatan Gov. Rolando Zapata said he felt growing good vibes.
“We believe that the beginning of a new baktun means the beginning of a new era, and we’re receiving it with great optimism,” Zapata said.
Even before the baktun’s end, hundreds of spiritualists from Asian, North American, South American and European shamanistic traditions mingled amiably with the Mexican hosts at a convention centre in Merida on Thursday.
Dozens of booths offered people the chance to have their auras photographed with “Chi” light, get a shamanic cleansing or buy sandals, herbs and whole-grain baked goods.
“This is the beginning of a change in priorities and perceptions. We are all one,” said Esther Romo, a Mexico City businesswoman who works in art promotion and galleries. “No limits, no boundaries, no nationalities, just fusion.”
British physicists have released a zombie film made secretly in the world’s largest and highest-energy particle accelerator.
The 80-minute film, Decay, was shot in the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) – a 27km tunnel 100 metres beneath the Swiss-French border at Geneva where the Higgs boson or “God particle” was recently discovered.
The £2,000 movie follows a small group of students, played by physicists, after a disastrous malfunction in the LHC tunnel.

- Mayan explanation of what will happen on 21st December 2012 (talesfromthelou.wordpress.com)
By Yoichi Shimatsu
Attacks Against the Scientific Spirit
The obliteration of the Mayan record by the Holy Roman Empire is a tragic loss for humankind. It also serves as a warning today against the falsehoods spun by global institutions and major corporations, which aim to bend science toward sinister purposes. Blind faith in genetic modification, an unbalanced view of climate change, a dependency on pharmaceutical drug and vaccines these are just a few of the many bogus “solutions” promoted by the huckster industries.
The Fukushima disaster is the Yucatan of this decade. The nuclear industry, big government and international agencies are financing a worldwide disinformation campaign to deny the dangers of radiation to human health and the environment.
- Radiation levels in Japan and in North America are being deliberately undercounted by the IAEA or not counted at all.
- An inhumane campaign is being mounted, even by the World Health Organization, to deny the negative effects of so-called low-dose exposure.
- Contamination data on food and water are being underestimated.
- The fallout impact on the upper atmosphere is being ignored despite the expansion of the Arctic ozone hole since March 2011 and the spate of freak tornados and derechos, which are wrongly attributed to global warming
- Poisoning of marine life in the Pacific is being pinned on an imaginary “red tide” in cold waters where such algae cannot survive
The blatant publication of falsehood on behalf of the nuclear industry is tantamount to a New Inquisition against fact-based science and empirical observation. The enemies of scientific honesty annihilated the Mayan civilization, and perhaps today their psychological descendants will have to destroy Japan to eliminate the evidence. No matter how much the records are rigged, they can never entirely wipe away the facts – liars be damned.

The apocalypse is surely near when Ramzan Kadyrov emerges as the voice of reason.
The ruthless leader of Chechnya is among dozens of Russians officials, priests, doctors and psychiatrists aiming to calm an anxious populace frantically preparing for the end of the world later this week.
“People are buying candles saying the end of the world is coming,” Kadyrov said in comments published on his official website last week. “Does no one realise that once the end of the world comes, candles won’t help them?”
For more than a month, Russians around the country have been buying up candles and matches, salt and torches in an effort to outsmart the apocalypse some believe will come when the Mayan calendar runs out on Friday.
In the coalmining town of Novokuznetsk, shelves nearly emptied of salt stocks last month as the city’s residents prepared to ride through the end of the world. “60 tonnes were bought in one week,” Yelena Zuyeva, a city official, said last week in comments carried on the local administration’s website. “Today all trade companies are working and are ready for any level for consumer activity.”
Online forums have been buzzing with people exchanging tips on what to eat after the entire human population is wiped out on Friday. “If I’m not mistaken, Russia makes all sorts of dehydrated products that are rich in all kinds of vitamins,” a user named Yelena Portnenkova wrote on a forum called “How to live? What to eat?” on VKontakte, the Russian version of Facebook. “Yet filling a garage with stocks of food is not just pointless, but dangerous. If the apocalypse comes, then crowds of hungry, angry, terrified and horrified people will sweep into your garage just because they suspect they might find something edible.”
Government officials have been called upon to calm fears. Vladimir Puchkov, Russia’s emergency situations minister, urged Russians to call his ministry’s hotline if they had any fears. His deputy, Sergei Anikeyev, added: “We don’t believe in the ‘end of the world’ fable,” adding hastily: “But we’re ready to help people with any emergency situation.”
With the end of the world just days away, Russians have moved from buying stocks to thinking long and hard about where to be when the lights go off. In Moscow, an underground bunker built during the second world war for the Soviet dictator Josef Stalin has offered its services: “We invite you to survive the apocalypse on 21 December in Bunker-42 on Taganka at 65 metres underground!” a note written in ominous red on its website cheerily reads.
Alexander Kolomeyets, the deputy head of Russia’s Association of Independent Psychiatrists, lamented the apocalypse-mania that has gripped his country. “There are people who are prone to mental epidemics and I think that most of them are in our country,” Kolomeyets said in an interview with local media in the far eastern city of Khabarovsk.
“What’s happening in our country can be a lot scarier than the end of the world – so any negative information sticks. The more primitive the society, the stronger it lends itself to psychological epidemics. I think in this case our country isn’t very civilised.”

The world will come to an end in just four days, and that’s a huge relief because it means we can all finally stop flossing. I doubt your dental health is going to dramatically change before 12/21/12. You can also stop taking out the trash and paying all your bills.
Over the next four days, we can pig out like obese, flatulent kings, paying no heed to the mountains of junk food, pies and donuts we consume, since obesity won’t really matter after the Mayan calendar comes to an end on December 21st and the universe implodes.
We can stop returning rented DVDs… Tell people what we really think, right to their face… Ask out that pretty girl (or cute guy) you’ve always admired on the off chance that they might have liked you too. What’s to be afraid of? We’re all dead in four days anyway.
Or, you could use the time to ask for forgiveness. Earn a little heavenly karma by engaging in random acts of kindness. Work to make amends in the few days you have remaining.
The choice is up to you. There are only four days left: What will you make of them?
The LIFE question
In truth, your physical life on this planet is quite limited. It may not be four days, since the Mayan calendar prophecy is a wild misinterpretation, but it might be four thousand days (about eleven years). It’s certainly not forty thousand days, as that’s over a hundred years.
So the real question becomes this: You have X number of days remaining in your life. What will you make of them?
Whether X is 4 days or 4,000 days isn’t really relevant. Your physical life experience is limited in duration, and that means you have a limited amount of time to fulfill your purpose for being here.
What is that purpose? I believe it is to experience personal growth and learn how to love. This is what most of the NDE survivors (Near Death Experience) report when they return to Earthly life. In the moments after this life, they are judged on their spiritual growth, the ethics of their actions, and whether they learned how to love.
Your clock is ticking, even if it’s not the Mayan calendar driving it. Each day that passes is one less day you have available to practice love, forgiveness, compassion, ethics and morality.
The universe isn’t coming to an end on December 21st, but your physical experience is coming to an end before you know it. When that day comes, and you face judgment for the totality of your life’s actions, how will your life appear in the eyes of the universal Creator?
That’s the question worth considering this coming Friday, the so-called “Mayan prophecy” day.
And when the world doesn’t end on Friday, you may wish to interpret that as all of us having a second chance to do better. How will you use the rest of your life to do better?

December 17, 2012
So we’re rapidly approaching the much heralded and prophecised Galactic Alignment, where the earth aligns with the sun through the galactic equator and according to some interpretations of the Mayan’s “Popol Vu”, it will also coordinate with the completion of what’s known as the “Precession of the Equinoxes”, which is caused by the ‘wobble’ of the Earth’s polar axis subscribing a 26,000 year cycle through the 12 constellations of the Zodiac. As I understand it, the Mayans configured their “Long Count” calendar around the prediction to complete on 21st December 2012. Is this true and what might we expect to happen as a result?…
I should quickly add, that many disagree with the timing of this event. Astronomers point to the calculations of Jean Meeus (Mathematical Astronomy Morsels, 1997) who concluded that it actually takes 36 years for the sun to pass through the alignment centred around 1998. By this calculation, there would be a window from 1980-2016 where alignment has already been happening every winter solstice. If he’s correct, and personally I feel a rightness with it, then we’re unlikely to witness anything extraordinary other than trends that have already been happening across the planet (which I’ll come onto in a moment).
Of course there’s quite a spiritual body invested in the Mayan predictions around 2012. To me, the exact timing matters not a jot, because lasting shifts of consciousness happen not according to some particular timing. That said, if we’re open to them, cosmic alignments like these, can temporarily at least uplift consciousness (which we must then integrate over time if they are to remain). And right now, like others, I do feel some pretty major cosmic shifts going on.
The Mayans accurately described a supermassive black hole at the centre of our Galaxy way before modern science discovered it. Passage along this ‘dark road’ or “Xibalba be” as the Mayans more romantically knew it, occurs with the retrograde movement of the Earths polar axis towards the ‘dark rift’ at the Galactic Centre. The Mayan culture apparently considered this as a journey into the underworld, a time of expanded consciousness. Certainly in my observations in facilitating evolving people, there definitely seems to be an acceleration into the darkened inner veils that limit – offering enormous opportunity for people to confront their fears and expand through them.
At this current time, I especially feel the underlying movements of energy as heavy denseness on the global plane of the intellect. Although I don’t feel heavy in myself, I can feel a heaviness infusing my field, an increased density, but one does have to be expanded into multiple dimensions in order to feel it.
Many have said that such Galactic Alignment – coinciding with the Precession – has in the past tended to cause dramatic earth changes like pole shifts, solar storms, volcanic activity and even earth crust displacement. For me, I feel the transition is more protracted, aligned with the 36 year window. We are for example already witnessing a gradual pole shift, reduction of the earth’s magnetic field, increasing volcanic activity and earthquakes plus freak weather all at a time when solar storm activity is moving towards a zenith of its natural cycle. So there is definitely the increasing possibility of disruptive events on a global scale, although not necessarily centred around any key date. It is more that we’re traveling into an increasing period of uncertainty and therefore escalating probability of ‘turbulence’.
What we must also take into consideration, are how mass spiritual meditation and ceremony could affect life in various locations in a positive way. And on the other side of the coin, we’re already witnessing escalating popular unrest in hot spots around the world, probably due to the increased catalytic agitation of consciousness. To make matters even more challenging to predict, we cannot rule out ‘false-flag’ scares by the ‘powers-that-be’. These times are indeed a challenge – and therefore an opportunity – of increased personal awareness and responsibility. On the road to Xibalba, there will be many shadows and we must allow the direction of a loving heart to take precedence.
So this ongoing transition is without doubt a great opportunity. Even if the various alignments do not happen as and when predicted, it is clear to many that the Earth indeed is undergoing a major transition. The signs, synchronicities and feelings strongly suggest to me at least, that her centre of consciousness is centering in the Fifth Density. I strongly believe this in itself is the major shift causing the current accelerated awakenings, fragmenting of the old fear based consciousness and a reharmonisation of vibration. It certainly feels that way to me.
Free Will and Self Determination
As this planetary shift currently takes place, I feel the soul of Gaia beginning to squeeze through the plane of the intellect. In my knowing a grid of dense energy, has over the millennia, been established within the human mass psyche by a 4th Dimensional Opposing Consciousness. This “Matrix” is interwoven through the very fabric of society. I’ve frequently spoken of it being unwound and fragmented. To me, this feels like a crucial time in that unwinding. I sense Gaia – and a variety of cosmic energies – gathering at this crucial juncture to break apart various elements of this vibrational matrix, repatriating the Opposing Consciousness and liberating humanity on the mental plane. Wouldn’t it be wonderful were that to happen!
And what about predicted mass awakenings? Well certainly, if such events are marked by a concentration of human focus, if people are caused to look up from the pavement and through the neon lighted sidewalks to the starlit heavens above, that can only be a good thing. Humanity needs as many mirroring opportunities as possible these days. But let’s be clear, no matter what the shift of consciousness that takes place, we still have to process our own inner darkness and clear it in order for the expansion to integrate and remain a part of an expanded awareness.
No matter what goes on, we are blessed with free will. Our Ascension is a constant conscious choice, which although can be spiked during key events such as these, can only be fully integrated by walking the Spiritual Path. And that in itself happens not just on one key day. It takes time, persistence and great patience.
About the Author
Chris Bourne – At the age of 40, I was involved in a life threatening car crash in which I thought I would certainly die. This precipitated total inner surrender and a rapid reconnection with the conscious life force through all things.
I found myself suddenly able to experience and contemplate through multiple dimensions of reality to see the deeper purpose of life itself. It was then I began to fully realise my true reason for being here.
During the crash, time seemed to slow right down and I was guided back through key moments of my life. I was realising that every moment in our lives has but one underlying purpose – to reveal an aspect of truth about ourselves to ourselves. I was beginning to dissolve every belief and value our society had conditioned within me.
This was my initial awakening to the magical unifying consciousness of the soul. Over the eight years that followed, I was guided through four other inner ‘Gateways’ of consciousness. I have since come to know the process as the five key expansions on our journey of Enlightenment and ultimate Ascension into multi dimensional living – our divine birthright.
My consciousness expansion however did not end there. It continued to blossom and expand. I became acutely aware of a highly evolved, benevolent presence, working through the weave of life since the dawning of time itself. I have come to know this Group of Nine intimately. It guides my life and is the basis of Openhand itself.

Local news agency reports that frescoes with scenes from the end of the world were discovered in the chapel of St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, which was built in 1495 and is located in Brasov, Romania.
In total, 14 frescoes depicting scenes of the apocalypse were found. Particular attention of the Romanian scientists was drawn to paintings that have a striking resemblance to modern documentaries about the prophecies of 2012, describing powerful solar flashes and a reversal of the Earth’s polarity.
According to local priest Basil Olteanu, the exact time of creation of these frescoes is unknown, but, in his opinion, they could not be created later than 1737, because on some frescoes there is information about the authors.
The most unusual fresco is called “Wheel of the World” and depicts the Earth rotating around the Sun. In particular, there is an equilateral triangle with the “all-seeing eye” sending death rays towards the Earth, which is so similar to the well-known Masonic symbol. At the same time, several saints are trying to turn the Earth upside down, which resembles the concept of reversal of the magnetic poles of our planet.
The uniqueness of the new found frescoes is that at the moment of their creation, the concept of the rotation of the planets around the Sun had not been yet recognized by the church, and of course no one knew anything about solar flashes or a reversal of the Earth’s polarity.

Claims that the world will end on Friday have gained traction in China, where the disaster movie 2012 was a box office hit
- The Guardian, Monday 17 December 2012
It’s the end of the world – unless you’re in the Chinese Communist party. Over the past few weeks, Chinese authorities have detained over 93 people across seven provinces for spreading rumours that the end is nigh, laying bare the party’s obsession with social stability and maintaining its tight grip on power.
Many people in China believe in the so-called “Mayan apocalypse” – slated to take place on 21 December, the last day on the Mayan long count calendar – because it was the central premise of the disaster film 2012, a box office sensation in China when it was released three years ago.
A man who slashed 22 schoolchildren last week in Henan province was “psychologically affected” by doomsday rumours, wrote the state newswire Xinhua. Shoppers in Sichuan province have been panic buying candles, convinced that Friday will kick off three consecutive days of darkness.
Authorities in far north-western Qinghai province arrested 37 members of a group called the Church of the Almighty God for spreading doomsday rumours last Thursday, according to a provincial government website. The group, which was founded in 1992, believes that a female Jesus has been, or will be, reincarnated in mainland China. It has called for death to the “Big Red Dragon”, its term for the Communist party. Hundreds of its followers have clashed with police in three provinces over the past week.
“A big eye was found in the sun on 9 December in Beijing, and female Jesus manifested herself with her name. Great tsunamis and earthquakes are about to happen around the world,” said part of a text message that the group sent to its adherents, according to the state-run Global Times newspaper. Chinese authorities call the group an “evil cult” that is guilty of embezzlement, kidnapping and torture.
State media said that authorities confiscated “a large number of banners, discs, slogans, books and printing machines”, but did not go into detail. It did not mention the group’s member count, though independent estimates range from thousands to over a million.
The rapid rise of subversive, quasi-religious groups in China is not without precedent. The mid-19th Taiping Rebellion, a bloody uprising against the Manchu Qing emperor, was led by a peasant claiming to be the younger brother of Jesus Christ; his army at one point controlled a swath of the country home to 30 million people. The persecuted spiritual group Falun Gong – also labelled an “evil cult” by Chinese authorities – operates an openly anti-Communist newspaper and television station from overseas.
“There’s an incentive for politicians to strike back at these groups and their way of thinking, to reassure everyone that everything’s going to be all right,” said Joshua Rosenzweig, researcher at the Centre for China Studies at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “The most important thing is that they are sending a message of zero tolerance and trying to keep control.”
Authorities have detained a total of 34 people in the south-eastern province of Fujian for spreading rumours, six of them for selling red paper discs emblazoned with apocalypse-proof charms. Another four were accused of encouraging pedestrians to save themselves by handing over their names, phone numbers and addresses. Four were arrested in Hebei and Sichuan provinces for distributing cataclysm-themed leaflets, and another four in the south-western metropolis Chongqing for prophesying via megaphone on the city’s streets.
Some Chinese people have found less subversive ways of dealing with the prophesy. Companies have made waves on social media websites by offering doomsday holidays and bonuses. One farmer in Hebei province built seven buoyant steel-and-fibreglass “survival pods” in his garage. Each costs about £30,000, holds 14 people, and includes oxygen, food, water and safety belts. Another pod-maker in Zhejiang province has received 21 orders for his high-quality, custom-made arks. One sold for almost £500,000.
A farmer in the far-western Xinjiang Autonomous Region spent about £100,000 to build a barge-like ark with 60 tonnes of steel and 30 protective layers of fibre resin. “I invested all of my savings in the construction of this boat,” he told Chinese media. “When the time comes, everyone can take refuge in it.”

As we come up out of this darkness we have lived in for thousands of years we find it is still hard to bring out the truth of who we are. Never in history have so many of us wanted the real truth to come out. Could the truth we all await for be fast approaching? Every time we take three steps forward we fall six steps back. Every time we step forward four steps we fall back eight steps thanks to governments, science and religion. It is time we stop falling back and only move forward. Only we humans can stop those who keep us blind to the truth.

Many believe that a shift in human consciousness was the true message of the Mayan Long Count Calendar. Graham Hancock discusses the meaning of the end of the current World Age in this clip from “2012: Science or Superstition.”

People looking to escape the “end of the world” are driving up one-way flight searches to villages deemed safe havens, figures suggest.
The Mayan calendar comes to an end on December 21 but, while many in Mexico will be celebrating a new start, some spiritualists believe the occasion will herald the apocalypse.
Bugarach in the south of France and Şirince in Turkey are places where some doomsday believers think they will be saved.
Figures from the flight booking website Skyscanner suggest that searches for flights to the south of France are up 41 per cent in the week before December 21, from the UK alone. This is when compared to the previous week, December 7 – 13.
Şirince in Turkey is also experiencing a rush – with 30 per cent more searches for one-way flights recorded.
Both villages are capitalising on their sudden fame, with prices at hotel rooms in Şirince, a village in Selçuk with a population of 570, increasing from anywhere between 100 – 500 TL to 3,000 TL, according to a Turkish news agency. Şirince is considered special as some believe it to be the birthplace of the Greek goddess Artemis and also the place where Mary, the mother of Jesus, ascended to heaven.
Meanwhile residents in Bugarach, an even smaller village of 179 in the French Pyrenees, are reportedly offering their houses for rent at $1,600 a night. The mayor, Jean-Pierre Delord, has previously expressed concerns about the village being “flooded from all the corners of the earth”.
In an attempt to prevent pandemonium local authorities have banned UFO watchers and light aircraft from the flat topped mountain of Pic de Bugarach.
According to New Age lore it as an “alien garage” where extraterrestrials are waiting to abandon Earth, taking a lucky few humans with them.
Skyscanner’s Victoria Bailie said: “We were surprised to see how big an increase there has been in searches for flights to the South of France and to Izmir in Turkey leading up to the 21st December: the date of the Mayan prophecy.”
However, not everyone believes the end of the world is nigh, and some things, at least, continue as normal.
The website also reports that December 22 looks to be the busiest day for flights this year, as people get away and plan to visit family for more traditional Christmas festivities.
