As 21st December, 2012 approached humanity was deep in frenzy! The Mayans had earlier predicted that a great cosmic cataclysm which may wipe out the world was in the offing!
I still remember the ominous 12: 21: 12! The media, mystics, scientists and the hoax pages on the internet buzzed with pros and cons. The anxiety was palpable as we drew closer to the dooms date. Even those who trashed the prediction could not calm our nerves when asked: what if? What if the Mayans are right after all?
Like I said some days later, “…the Mayans were both right and wrong! They were right because 12: 21 is the winter solstice and on such days the earth is aligned to peculiar radiation frames that make the day special or stand out. The solstice of 2012 was particularly spectacular because it coincided with incisive cosmic movements which some call the galactic alignment. This exposed the earth to intense pressure, gravitational pull and increased electromagnetic particles. These are once in a lifetime events. If anything the Mayans should at least be appreciated for predicting cosmic events ages ago which by and large happened.
They were again right again because they were celebrating the preservation of their culture for thousands of years. They called for a huge celebration, made a spectacle of it and the world noticed. About 5200 years ago the Mayans predicted the end of their calendar in 2012 which would also mark the beginning of another cycle called Job Ajaw. The beginning of the previous recycle witnessed serious climatic events and so they predicted that the elements would go haywire in 2012. On that count, they scored a pass.
The Mayans were however wrong when they went forward to predict or, allude to an apocalypse. In doing so, they overlooked the fact that the fate of the earth is intricately interwoven with that of earthman and by implication, overlooked the Divine prescription for the destruction or salvation of earthman. Where would man be if he had not reached his time before the earth and the fullness thereof are removed from under his feet?…”
Whichever way, I still remember 12:21:12, the Day of The Mayans!
