Mystery of 2012 Predictions
You have heard it: The only thing constant is change.
And that's so true, as our world is constantly changing...
The fact is, we're changing it - and we're changing with it.
You could eventually call it: evolution.
Have you wondered, what may be around the corner of the next evolutionary step?
We are able to destroy the Earth many times over with nuclear weapons alone, then are we conscious enough of what we are doing?
Is the evolutionary leap possible with the technological development alone?
Or are we still missing something?
When there is a talk about the year 2012, some people claim, that time is accelerating.
What does it mean exactly?
What place does the quickening scenario and human consciousness expansion have in 2012 predictions?
Despite the often associated quantum physical meaning, time acceleration - as perceived by humans - can be understood as a metaphor... relating to the speed of the evolution.
Do you know that multicellular life appeared around billion years ago, vertebrates several hundred million years ago, mammals - tens of millions years ago... the first hominids appeared a few million years ago, homo sapiens - just a few thousand years ago?
Especially within the last 200 years the evolution run has really set off in the form of civilization development and human adaptation.
Our language, tools, development of civilization through all its stages - it all happens much sooner than the previous step.
This is because each new development stands on the shoulders of the previous one.
Being aware of this, we can expect multiple technological breakthroughs in the near future, given what has been developed in the last two decades.
In the multi-authored compilation The Mystery of 2012: Predictions, Prophecies, and Possibilities Peter Russell writes of issues relating to evolution, pointing to the necessary path humans should take to prevent serious problems in the future.
He lists the hierarchy of issues (which could be later seen as breakthroughs) linked to each successive step of development: data, information, knowledge, wisdom.
If we really want to survive and prosper, then in the current point in time, what we need to develop is the latter.
Without wisdom further development might eventually bring us a catastrophe...
Are we heading on to doomsday?
The next evolutionary step should then be understood as an attainment of wisdom.
The consciousness and responsibility leading to a sustainable development... Does it sound familiar? The problem might lay in definition and, of course, in wise application.
Even if we reject all the waffle-talk of New Age often associated with the year 2012 theme, even if we don't believe in Mayan 2012 Predictions, it seems there are some unchanging truths we should understand, if we want to make a small step... or a leap in evolution, not getting hurt badly in the process.
This compilation covers a much wider spectrum of issues and topics relating to 2012 predictions, prophecies and, so-called, evolution 2012.
