Is 2012 the End of the World?
Is 2012 the end of the world? Yes, according to the Maya, the Hopi, Nostradamus, and many others, 2012 is the end of the world. But there is a part that often gets left out: "as we know it."
Different Rhythms and Understandings of Time
The Maya were experts at reading time pulsations and converting them into linear language via the infamous Mayan calendar. These pulsations were not the normal solar-calendar revolutions, but waves that were interpreted by the time decoders and translated into a threedimensional, linear timeline.
Our current calendar system is one that revolves around the sun. It is a system that is admittedly patriarchal, and a departure from the lunar calendars of the past 30,000 or more years, which were tied to the feminine cycles and those of Earth.
