2012 – The Moment of Transformation – The End of Time
The word is spreading about 2012, and is likely to keep spreading in the years to come. In several prophetic traditions that are already well known, and in others that are coming to light, the years 2011 and 2012 appear again and again as the End of Time, when sweeping changes are expected to transform all of human consciousness, lifting and accelerating it into new and "higher" states of spiritual awareness and action.
On a planet that has yet to catch up with what Einstein and Planck wrote about 100 years ago, and with the main premise of quantum theory – that the universe is composed not of solid "realities" of matter, but of frequencies of energy – and that continues to doubt the infinite creative power of the individual mind, much less of many minds united in the "100th Monkey" paradigm, it's inevitable that most of the early air and scare about 2012 emphasizes the cataclysmic Earth changes that some expect to see, and the profound dislocation of human life in all areas: physical, social, political, economic, cultural. For those who are more interested in the symptoms than in the root thought, these fearful interpretations of the End of Time as "the end of the world" (imagine here the appropriate sound effects of screams, thunder, flames and the trump of doom) naturally evoke the imagery of the last days from Revelations and other sources: natural disasters, war, plague and every other horribly painful thing that fear propagandists can cook up, and their audience can imagine.
The actuality is different. The End of Time does not mean The Horrific Destruction of Everything We Love. It means a change in the nature of time itself, or more likely a change in the way we perceive time as no longer a kind of fluid medium that we live in, like water, or that we move along like a racetrack with birth at the starting block and death at the finish line. Rather, the change is likely to be a more proactive relationship with time as one of the art forms that conscious beings create, and that we therefore have the power to change. In other words, time will no longer be something we suffer passively. It will be something that we create and use to our advantage, for the purposes of our individual and collective soul evolution.
Thus some of those who've theorized about this – and we'll get to a few examples soon – speculate that in 2012 we evolve or "ascend" into the 5th Dimension, bypassing the 4th dimension of time, so that we are no longer at the effect of time, but can use it as a kind of artist's medium.
A few specific examples:
The End of Time in 2012 is an idea has been deeply linked with shamanic medicine, and with the calendrics of the Maya, ever since the late Terence McKenna and his brother Dennis did their original researches in the Amazon basin on 1971. While there has been debate about the calculations of Jose Arguelles – pioneer of today's Mayan calendar studies in The Mayan Factor – there is little doubt that some of the Mayan calendar systems, especially the "long count" that began in 3114 BC, do point to some moment of transformation coming in or around 2012.
The People to Read:
The leading researcher in the field is John Major Jenkins, whose seminal works of scholarship in Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 (1994) and Galactic Alignment (2004) prove that the Maya, and the astronomers of the Vedic and Egyptian traditions, all understood the key piece of knowledge: the precession of the equinoxes backward through the zodaic in a cycle of more than 25,000 solar years that Plato called the Great Year, and that the Maya also considered a circle of spiritual evolution toward higher consciousness. Jenkins demonstrates how the crucial Mayan "long count" of 5,126 years from 3,114 BC through 2012 culminates in a moment of extreme cosmic power and significance, when the winter solstice sun on Dec. 21, 2012 aligns precisely with the point where the ecliptic – the path of the Sun through the zodiac – crosses line of the galactic center, positioned late in the sign of Sagittarius, just before the cusp of Capricorn.
Another candidate for the moment of awakening has been proposed by the Swedish scholar Carl Johan Calleman, who calculates the ending of the long count on October 28, 2011 because this is the date of a rare synchrony: a 260-day tzolkin cycle and a new 360-day tun both begin on the same day. In Calleman's view, the period of almost 13 years from January 1999 through October 2011 are a 13-tun Galactic Creation Cycle in which seven "Days" of progress toward spiritual consciousness alternate with six "Nights" of regression away from spirit, until this cycle oscillates toward the moment of awakening. Calleman's new book The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness was published in April, 2004. The Mythic Preludes in last two Universal Festival Calendars for December have focused on Calleman's ideas. See especially UFC December 2003.
Terence McKenna first presented his Time Wave Zero paradigm in 1975. This design maps out all of human history, of each person and of whole societies and countries whose lives may span millennia, in a recurring fractal pattern that moves up and down between freedom and restriction, happiness and suffering, and the other positive/negative, good/bad features of polarity consciousness as we've experienced it so far the third density (read "third dimension") where we think we live. As human history has moved from ancient to modern times and to the present moment, the fractal pattern has occurred at shorter and shorter intervals; and it will keep accelerating in the years to come. If anything, the roller coaster ride will rocket along faster, plunge deeper and zoom higher than anything we've known or even imagined. According to Time Wave Zero, the fractal pattern runs out, and the carnival ride ends, in December 2012. Polarity consciousness is no more. We experience time, and everything else, as unity, not as a series of conflicts and oppositions.
In recent years, new studies of the controversial Time Wave Zero design have refined it to a greater degree of accuracy. For more on this, see the 2012 Links page of the Dire Gnosis 2012 website, which, apart from the unfortunate fear nuance in its title, does list a wealth of valuable material . Dire Gnosis lists over 100 sites with everything from scientific analysis and prophecy studies to channeled material and works of fiction on issues related to 2012.
As we approach 2012, and as 2012 and the Coming of Aquarius is published, these pages on Hermes 3 will carry more information on global meditations and ceremonies, and activities that aim at aligning and activating the Aquarian Hive Mind.
More to come on all this when time, whatever that proves to be, permits.
