About MeI live in Jackson Hole, Wyoming where I explore the deeper reaches of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem while also trying to raise awareness about light pollution and the importance of dark skies through photography and video.

Welcome to 2012 – The End of the World As We Know It?January 1, 2012
13 Flares 13 Flares ×
Turn pretty much anywhere and you can find hype of "the end of the world." Is there really anything to be worried about, or is it just Y2K all over again? My opinion based on what I’ve read about the Mayans (which was quite a bit a few years back) is what follows.
The world as we know it will, in fact, end on the winter solstice of 2012. However, this does not mean that the world will end, nor civilization or anything like that. Anybody who says the contrary is probably just trying to sell you a movie ticket you’ll regret accepting, or something along those lines. The accurate translation is that our fear-based way of life that has persisted for thousands of years will end, ushering in a new era of cooperation and love-based mindsets. In fact, it’s already started. Compare the last 20 years with the last 200 years. Look at all the revolutions that have taken place and the way advertising has shifted to reflect this, just to name a couple of examples.
It’s not that one day, we’re going to wake up on the winter solstice of 2012 and see a completely different world. Instead, what’s happening around us today and in the years prior is leading up to a revolution in our consciousness that will climax on that date. You can see examples all around us: revolutions in the Middle East; the Occupy Wall Street Movement, fed up with how secretive governments operate; advertising based on love rather than fear; and much more.
So, is this what’s actually going to happen? No one knows for certain. This is just what I believe based on what I’ve read and I’ve certainly seen enough evidence to account for it, but we all have our own points of view. My advice to you is, if it really is the end of the world, then live like it’s your last year on Earth. If everything keeps going into 2013 as I’ve described, or even unchanged, then you’ll not only have had best year of your life, but you’ll also have a good blueprint for continuing that enjoyment.
