Hmm....I'm bad at explaining I guess....

Here's a better explaination, curtesy of wikipedia (of course!) of what the heck is actually happening/feeding all the buzz (what buzz???)

According to the Popol Vuh, a book compiling details of creation accounts known to the K'iche' Maya of the Colonial-era highlands, we are living in the fourth world. The Popol Vuh describes the first three creations that the gods failed in making and the creation of the successful fourth world where men were placed. In the Maya Long Count, the previous creation ended at the start of a 13th b'ak'tun.
The previous creation ended on a long count of Another will occur on
December 20, 2012, followed by the start of the fourteenth b'ak'tun,, on December 21, 2012.


Yaaaay. This is where the end of the world idea comes into play.

New Beginnings!?!?!

So yeah, I've been wanting to do this for a while now....the idea has been stewing.

Premise? I'm pissed. I graduate college in 2011. The world may end the next year? What a jip.

What am I talking about? Well, if you haven't heard, sometime between December 21st and 23rd in 2012, the Mayan Calendar ends. (Different people have different opinions on the exact date....and it's actually the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar....and it's not really ending, just completing it's 13th b'ak'tun cycle....but people keep refering to it as the ending of the mayan calendar....)

So what? Well, the world might end. Or maybe we'll be part of a major metaphysical/spiritual transformation and enter the AGE OF AQUARIUS!!!! *cue the music*

So, I intend to deal with all the crazy shit that people keep saying will happen. A geomagnetic pole reversal? Aliens? Creation of a noosphere? The fall of human civilization? I guess you'll find out how I'd deal with these things.
