I (@gaiapunk) am going to endorse this fascinating film (which has some great permaculture and climate change sections) to skeptics and neo-tribal new agers alike with the following disclaimer: most of what you hear regarding 2012 prophecy being the end of the world is likely utter crap. But, that being said, there are some quite credible claims that are worth giving 2012 as well as this film some serious consideration:
1.) According to NASA scientists the solar maximum of the sun may peak around the end of 2012 which could mean extremely disruptive solar storms that will pose a major risk to satellite communications and our fragile electrical grid.
2.) The Mayan astronomers were amazingly accurate with their calculations and would likely celebrate the date 2012 not fear it.
3.) Data generation is increasing at a awe inspiring pace which will continue to create rapid innovation and a shift towards more collaborative and sharing culture. Here is a mighty proclamation from Eric Schmidt CEO of Google, “There was 5 exabytes of information created between the dawn of civilization through 2003, but that much information is now created every 2 days, and the pace is increasing…People aren’t ready for the technology revolution that’s going to happen to them.” Just imagine 2 years from now….
4.) Even some level headed economists, trenders, stock traders, and most amazingly biological scientists are looking at 2012 with significance…
Permaculture and the great renewal…
This is not a dooms day post about the world ending at all but rather a post about our many evolutions, the great power of synergy, and esspecially of compassion. 2012 is not only about a great astrological alignment as perdicted by the mayan calender not seen for over 25,000 years in which our solar system will be in line with the exact meridian and center of the Milky Way Galaxy, but also a alignment of human beings with a new positive intention for the planet. In my mind is a vision of huge numbers of people working harmoniously together and cooperating as a united but diverse global force for good. This is just so much doom out there about 2012 it is hard find anything reliable unless you know what your looking at. I like this animated video below because it’s easy to understand and very nicely gives you the idea. It is up to each of us to create as much interconnective sharing as possible as creative enegry sparks a new conciousness emerging all over the world. Digital media and mobile technology are making this even easier to facilitate, but most importantly, we have to connect with our hearts to our work and those we work with and love. Please comment if this video ressonates with you or anyone you know in anyway or if you just think it’s hippy dippy b.s. I would still want to know …..Gaia punks unite!
