2012 Movie- Hype, Fact or Fiction?

2012- Hype, Fact or Fiction?

12212012 With mounting interest surrounding December 21, 2012 and all it may portend, what are some facts and what may just be fiction? Discussions and opinions cover the whole spectrum of thought. From the writings of our ancient cultures, the worlds faith’s and visionary seers to recent compelling scientific evidence which many say all point to our time as some call- the Shift of The Age. Will that time usher in a new Heaven & Earth or end of day’s cataclysms to ravage and reshape Earth? Or, could it be both? The feeling of great change is in the air and it’s already palpable.

Doomsday Hysteria

Even Hollywood is cashing in with some hype. 2012 the movie from Roland Emmerich, a director known for his dramatic and often visually destructive films, we have- 2012 out this November. Check out the preview-

Fact- one camp of thought offers a dire viewpoint of 2012. Clearly they are supported by the mounting evidence of extreme weather and geological upheaval now increasingly visible on the planet. Yes, the earth is changing rapidly. A week cannot go by without some unprecedented weather event baffling a shocked scientific community.

Changes are not only on the earth. Our neighboring planets and sun even the entire solar system is being affected by some yet unknown galactic energies coming our way. One can no longer ignore these facts; just look at all the ongoing revelations coming from NASA and other scientific bodies. As above so below, all are interconnected.

The mainstream argument poses the burning of fossil fuels, pollution and man’s footprints in general, are the source of earth’s climatic change. However, there is not a consensus agreement among leading scientists and climatologists that earth’s warming are caused by these. Take for example ice core samples taken from the north and south poles. According to their record, our earth has experienced in our not to distant past, a warming. Hmm… were humans burning fossil fuels 13,000 years ago? Just a thought.

A Differing Look at December 21, 2012

Here is a short, concise clip on the topic coming from researchers who have much to say about this time period. Expect more revealing valuable information to emerge as we close in on the infamous date.  Consider one thing, this whole process has already begun years ago and will continue speeding up. Hold on for an interesting ride!

Non-Opposing Viewpoints

Mayan Temple

One culture which is universally associated with 12/21/2012 primarily due to their mind-blowing astronomical calendars, are the Mayans. Their civilization flourished and peaked in 250-900 AD in South America. Of all their extremely accurate calendars, the most famous is called the Long Count calendar. It began on August 11, 3114 BC and ends on December 21, 2012. That date according to the Mayan Long Calendar, is the end of the 13th Baktun. Each Baktun is a period of 144,000 days. It is very important to note the word “end” does not denote nothing is thereafter. Quite the contrary. Just as we now flip over our calendars each New Year, the Mayan Long Count calendar continues into the 14th Baktun. However, the Maya did consider the “flip from one Baktun to another” to be an important occurrence, fraught with meaning and peril. And this is where many of the 2012 discussions and theories emanate from.  Some of which are shrouded in secret knowledge, mysticism and even religious texts.

Coincidently, this ~5,125 year time period (144K x 13/365.438) of the 13th baktun almost matches exactly with the beginning date of the Hindu epoch of time know as the Kali Yuga. According to the Kali Yuga text, it depicts a period having many of the failings visible in our modern society, a predicted era of moral decent and spiritual bleakness. Fortunately we are on the verge of entering the Satya Yuga (the age of truth) when all falsehood will be exposed and drop away. Accordingly, the Maya believe we (those by choice) will then go through the door that was left by them, transforming our world view from one based on fear to another vibration much higher, closer to unconditional love.

Yuga’s are vast periods of time, epochs that relate to the Earths journey around our cosmological central sun, the Milky Way’s galaxy center. The Maya called this center point of our universe the Hunab Ku.


Translated as: “the only or sole God”. They revered this place and believed all life on earth originated from and is continually supported by its power. Science may soon catch up with and confirm this belief concept. Hunab Ku is depicted with the symbol on the left.

Modern astronomy confirms that our solar system travels completely through all constellations of the zodiac every ~25,625 years.  According to those in the know, we recently (1980’s-1990’s) entered into the eleventh constellation of the zodiac, Aquarius. Spirit of AquariusPassage through each of the twelve constellations takes approximately 2,166 years to complete. Aquarius is quite interesting in regards to the 2012 phenomena. The name means “water bearer”. You may also equate water with light, the “bearer of light”. The Aquarian age is interpreted as the water of life (light) pouring upon the people. How interesting is that!

Cycles of Time

I’ll post soon on the significance of this astronomical process- the precession of the equinox, as it relates to 2012. What I will say now is that our Milky Way galaxy is once again after ~25,625 years returning to align with and pass through the center of our galaxy. Scientists confirm this fact of the ancients, adding new knowledge that various, yet understood energies pulse from the galactic center along the plane which we are right now traversing through.

How did the Mayan and others know this? With all their knowledge, we should at least investigate with an open mind, what they and others may be saying to us today.

Where to Now?

If, you decide to investigate or learn more about the 2012 subject, know this up front- there are many schools of thought on the subject, yet invariably all agree on one thing: we are now living in the time of great change and opportunity. Would you agree? Look around, even into your own life and ask. But with this change, comes the price of the journey. Your price of admission is paid for through your life experiences. Each and every one of them the good, the bad and the ugly contribute their share.

With opportunity, a personal challenge to go within ourselves to reveal and overcome our fears. Where there is fear, complete love for all of life cannot easily grow. Acknowledge and embrace your fear of the unknown. Finally, our self-imposed limiting belief systems which have long hindered us must fall away during this great change. Look into the starry night sky and ask yourself- In all this grandeur before me, how can I as one, be as wise and powerful as a million? Be still and receive your answer. Take care during the process as once committed to raising your level of awareness, you cannot return back to who you were prior. And that is good believe it or not.

The end of anything by definition is the beginning of that which comes next. So too the cycle of time continues; the world shall not come to an end on December 21, 2012. Quite the contrary, December 21, 2102 represents the culmination of a darkened age of awareness and limited human growth which has given us the contrasts of life to define the world we are now creating. Envision a world without externally or internally imposed limitations, where following your passion in life contributes immensely to a new, much improved world.

We can only imagine now all the influences converging and conspiring to bring us through this magical, once in 25,625 year transition. Will it usher in a thousand years of peace, a golden age on earth with its emphasis on humanity, kindness, truth, spirituality and enlightenment? That is my choice; take your pick, the choice is yours!

    “In a good way. If you’re looking for deep, meaningful, intellectual entertainment, this isn’t the film for you. It is, however, a well-paced, entertaining disaster movie. As always with Emmerich films, the special effects are fantastic.

    the Movie is concentrated more on Visual effects than facts… not a movie for people who are looking for intellectual entertainment

    Hey Tim!

    You mentioned how Hollywood has profited from this uncertainty. Have you noticed how the History Channel as become the Doomsday channel? When they’re not showing Ice Road Truckers, that is. Their new thing is “The Nostradamus Effect,” some of which is re-purposed footage from a previously produced, one-episode special that compares multiple cultural traditions regarding 2012. Then there’s “Life After People.” They may need to rename themselves.

      Chris, you have a great point. I too have watched those recent episodes on the History channel you mentioned. Personally, of all the shows I watched, The Lost Book of Nostradamus was by far the best in my opinion partly because they included a guy by the name of James Weidner.

      A book he co-authored titled- Mysteries of the Great Cross of Hendaye, hits home the meaning of the 2012 timeline. Thankfully, the History channel is placing this information out in the public arena for discussion even though some of us would like a more complete view, not repackaged clips.
