Well, it turns out the end of the world has been rescheduled … AGAIN …Â for Friday.
And if that doesn’t work out, we’ve always got next December. In fact, a New York Times bestsellingÂ author says he knows exactly who’s to blame.
Incidentally, if you were counting on the Comet Elenin to end it all last week, NASA says it fizzled out as it got close to the sun and won’t be back for 12,000 years.
A number of doomsayers had proclaimed it was actually aÂ rogue neutron star and that its intense gravity would suck us all out into space or cause Earth’s poles to shift.
However, when it came closest to Earth on Oct. 16, “Elenin did as new comets passing close by the sun do about two percent of the time: It broke apart,” said Don Yeomans of NASA’s Near-Earth Object Program Office at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. “Elenin’s remnants will also act as other broken-up comets act. They will trail along in a debris cloud that will follow a well-understood path out of the inner solar system. After that, we won’t see the scraps of comet Elenin around these parts for almost 12 millennia.”
But what aboutÂ Friday?Â Will this doomsday prediction actually come true?
It seems Swedish researcher Carl Johan CallemanÂ has figured outÂ that everybody has misread the Mayan calendar — which was thought to end on Dec. 21, 2012.
No, he says, it actually runs out on Oct. 28 — Friday.Â You see,Â he has been studying theÂ âage-old thought structuresâ of the ancient Mayans since the 1990s.Â His reasoning is not entirely easy to grasp — but it apparently has a lot to do with positive vibes and cosmic convergences. Here is a video in which he explains things, sort of:
If you are completely confused after listening to him, then try this from his website:Â
We have now celebrated the Cosmic Convergence and there is less than one night and one day before the fulfillment of the evolutionary plan for all of creation (or at least the attainment of the top level).
As predicted the Ninth wave of this plan, which is coming to a close together with the other waves of the Mayan calendar on October 28, 2011, has brought a tremendous frequency increase to the world.
As this most likely is my last communication before the Mayan calendar comes to an end on October 28, 2011, it may now also be in its place to discuss somewhat what this âendâ may mean.
I see three possible alternatives that may follow after the universe has attained its highest state: The first, and most dramatic alternative, is that all waves – as well as the tzolkin cycle – come to an end.
This would likely mean an abrupt end to all future energetic regulation of our lives and actions and a sort of freedom shock. Life would be lived fully moment by moment by moment and each moment would be an eternity that would not be organically linked to other moments.
Uh, what? No earthquakes?
The second alternative, which I am currently leaning towards, is that the waves end, after having accomplished their evolutionary purposes, but the tzolkin continues to provide some energetic background variation. This would still mean living moment by moment without any waves directing our evolution, but a daily variation of tzolkin energies could prevent us from experiencing life as completely timeless.
The third alternative is that not only the tzolkin, but also the nine creation waves (Underworlds) continue indefinitely and the total of peaks and valleys not limited to thirteen. This would still mean that we would no longer be subordinated to directed processes going from seed to mature fruit, but it would not mean that life would be like an eternal now. Rather, all the waves that are currently driving our evolution would continue after the attainment of unity consciousness, but really without any end.
So, in other words, nothing will happen? Or will the entire universe be thrown into chaos? Basically, Calleman says he’s notÂ certain.
However, New York Times best-selling author Steve Alten is. He says December 21, 2012 is the date to watch — and the French and Swiss are to blame. In particular,Â disaster will be ushered in byÂ the Large Hadron Collider,Â that $10 billion international science project straddling the French and Swiss border.
âBy their own admittance, the LHC experiment creates miniature black holes,â states Alten in a news release promoting his new book Phobos: Mayan Fear from Tor/Forge Books.
The book explainsÂ “what could happen on December 21st, 2012,” says the news release.
Ah, what could happen. It would appear that both Calleman and Alten have learned from the unfortunate experience of California radio preacher Harold Camping — whose rock-solid, guaranteed forecasts of Christ’s Second Coming in May, then the complete destruction of the entire universe last week — didn’t exactly pan out. So, the two authors are leaving some wiggle room.
According to Alten, the French-Swiss project is creating “stable tiny black holes which could grow in size as they pass through the LHC chamber into Earthâs core. One of the side effects detailed in my book is that each pass through the Earthâs crust causes a seismic event â earthquakes, tsunamis, and volcanic eruptions. Weâve certainly seen some big ones since September 2008 and it may get worse.â
How worse? Alten says his new book “describes two frightening events: the eruption of the Yellowstone caldera (think 2,000 Mount St. Helens) and a 1,000-foot-high mega-tsunami unleashed by the landslide eruption of a volcano in the Canary Islands that some scientists believe poses a catastrophic threat to the eastern seaboard of the United States.
“As bad as these things sound, Alten saves the very worst for December 21st, 2012,” reads his news release. It quotes him as saying:
“The irony of the Large Hadron Collider is that physicists designed it in order to prove the existence of the Higgs Boson particle, which they nicknamed the ‘God particle.’ In their egotistical desire to prove themselves right, theyâre willing to risk humanity. We know what happens when you split the atom (nuclear weapons); the price we pay for smashing atoms may be far worse.”
Then the news release continues:
Alten was advised during the writing process by a quantum physicist, who concurred with the authorâs theories, and is acknowledged in the story. Over the years, other physicists have come forward to protest the work being conducted at the LHC, including a group that sued â all to no avail. Can a best-selling author of fictional thrillers make a difference?
âAll of my novels are painstakingly researched, real facts woven throughout the storyline,â says Alten. âIn Phobos, the fact is far scarier than the fiction.â
So, there you have it. Time will end Friday — and maybe the world, too. But we may not notice it.
And it doesn’t really matter because on the French-Swiss border, irreponsible experimenters are sending black holes into the core of the Earth and on the Mayan doomsday, that’ll be what does us all in.
