When Nothing Catastrophic Occurs in 2012
    #2567425 - 04/16/04 01:09 PM (13 years, 9 days ago)

Of course, every year has it's share of tragedies and wars which will be pointed out by the apologists for 2012, but basically what will happen is: *drumroll please* nothing out of the ordinary.

2012 will be forgotten along with Pyramid Power of the '70s, the Harmonic Convergence of the '80s and Nostradamus end of the world in the '90s. Most posters here will have gotten a life, grown up and moved on, while a fresh crop of bright-eyed dreamers will show up here espousing the latest nonsensical fantasy.

A former believer will take Swami's place as the "resident debunker" and rolling his eyes, he will tell the non-listening young-uns about the 2012 hoopla. This ancient history will hold no interest to the forward looking youth, eager for the next magic act and they will decry the former-believer as being close-minded for not buying into the "Prediction of the Month".

Thus spake Zarathustra

The proof is in the pudding.

I've got my popcorn and regardless of whether anything happens or not, I'm going to be watching, just in case.

The day will come when, after harnessing the ether, the winds, the tides, gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love. And, on that day, for the second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.  -Teilard

Popcorn? I love popcorn.


--------------------
To call humans 'rational beings' does injustice to the term, 'rational.'  Humans are capable of rational thought, but it is not their essence.  Humans are animals, beasts with complex brains.  Humans, more often than not, utilize their cerebrum to rationalize what their primal instincts, their preconceived notions, and their emotional desires have presented as goals - humans are rationalizing beings.

And people will still question everything... and the whole cycle will be lost in a sea of repition, as life will take its swings at any passer by. Of which that person will come up with a infinite number of different ways of reacting... and posting them on bulletin boards to be infused in the embodiment of "esoterica", which will then be enjoyed, while red eyes reflect the subtle cherry of a lit joint, and the thin stream of casual smoke.  :spliff:

not everyone who believes that 2012 will be a significant year is predicting disaster. 

I dont know what is going to happen to YOU in 2012, but I have a feeling that I know what will happen to ME. 

and if nothing happens, well, that's what the cyanide Kool-Aid is for :lol:

but seriously, I think 2012 will be a year that brings a new way of life, thought, and human expression.  I also think that about 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 as well!

On the corner at the end of the block (not visible in the photo), there was a man selling "Harmonic Convergence" buttons for $2 a piece. I heard that if one rubs this button on their throat at the stroke of midnight... they can talk to the Rock Spirits.

Jus' what I heard....

It'd be pretty damn amazing if something grand and mystical did happen...

it's already happened, to many of us
all it is is that people will know themselves
nothing will actually happen
discoveries will move on apace, transformations wilkl occur
Butthe story will go on.
Well who knows, maybe not
Maybe some great big thing will stick out of the eschatalon and intrude on life - physically
that would be funky
I always fancied some mad-shit like that happening.
But who knows
Skeptical....but getting the popcorn in none the less :wink:
Anything is possible, and CAN happen....................
there were a hell of a lot of dates where nowt turned out so far tho eh?
It's most likely we'll finally hit mars or sometin. That will change humanity's entire dynamic, yet in everyday life things will feel and seem the same. Experience will be expeience.
Who knows
I deep down would like to be blown away tho, unlikely as it may seem according to logic.....

Well, I'll more than likely have a front row seat at the tv watching re-runs of Friends. I can't think of a more terrifying global doomsday scenario than that.

if time does not exist, then 2012 is simply an illusion, and when ever the world ends it will be 2012 and whatever date you can simitaniously combine all at once. Therefore metapysically you will owe me 10,000$ when the world ends , but we will be dead so just pay me in karma.

That's a big "if"... if you want to make it, do so... but don't expect it to be true.

Um... okay... I want in on this action. I'll sell you all the karma you need for $200.
Deal?

Depending on the media you choose to consume, you might believe that the world was going to end in a harsh manner real soon.. but bleh
