2012: End of the world as we know it?

As you can see, the year is rapidly coming to an end and people are getting more and more excited over presents, plans and (why not?) new year resolutions, meant to be respected starting with the awaited 2013. However, one element seems to overshadow the jolly preparations for the winter holidays. Yes, we are taking about the Apocalypse. Have the Mayans succeeded in predicting the end of the world as we know it? Or have their readings been misinterpreted and what we consider to be the apocalypse is actually the beginning of a new era? All we can do is wait and see, as there are less than 10 days until the prolific December 21st.

It-is-the-End-of-the-World-as-We-Know-it…-or-is-itIn case you are not familiar with the Mayan Apocalypse, he’s some basic information on the matter which will hopefully shed some light: firstly, the Mayans were an ancient Mesoamerican civilization which set its grounds on nowadays southern Mexican states. They contributed enormously to fields such as astronomy and mathematics. They are probably most famous for their extreme 2012 Prophecy: the 21st of December is regarded as the end-date of the 5125-year-long cycle of the Mayan calendar. Numerous religious movements have associated this date with a series of apocalyptic cataclysms.

New Age followers believe in a spiritual renaissance: the end of the Maya calendar represents, from their point of view, the beginning of a new era of happiness, meaningful depth and spiritual growth. Other speculations include a selection between human beings, on who is worthy enough to enter a new Dimension and who isn’t.

Pop-culture hasn’t let the subject off its radar. Movie 2012, starring Jack Cusack was previously released, and it illustrates an apocalyptic view of 2012, with numerous natural calamities and a futuristic “Escape” route.

What awaits us on the 21st of December? We don’t know. However, we shouldn’t let ourselves become overwhelmed: prophecies about the end of the world have circulated since the beginning of mankind – other “fatidic” dates included 2000, 2011 and even the beginning of the second millennium.
