2012 - The end of his story

Having watched the movie 2012 at the weekend it seemed like a good time to re-post my ramblings on the Mayan calendar and other ideas about the end of history.

2012 the movie is what you'd expect of Hollywood: Sickeningly bland American characters, an abysmal script, a healthy dose of cheese and some million dollar special effects. Overall a pretty poor excuse for quality entertainment, apart from a blinding performance from Woody Harleson as the crazed pirate radio DJ and end-of-the-world blog author and whistle-blower. His hammy, drug-influenced rantings and cartoon animation explain the basic theory of the 2012 plot: Extraordinarily large solar flares shower the world in solar radiation, reacting with Earth's liquid core, causing it to heat up to the point that the Earth's crust starts waltzing about, leading to the destruction of life as we know it...

The Mayan's 'knew it was coming', because they'd worked out the planets were all going to line up and that 'something' was going to happen... Why else would they have designed a calendar which ends in 2012?

Natural Materials for Social Change

Analysis of public attitudes to health indicate that increased awareness of the dangers posed by synthetic materials could further demand for natural alternatives and help prompt social change. As Edward Harland notes 'it is people healthy in body and spirit who are most likely to have the energy, enthusiasm and vision to solve the immense problems facing life on this planet'.
