1. Introduction

Here is an idea worth considering:

Thousands of years ago humankind had attained a high-level of technological achievement. They understood laws of nature that are unknown to us today. They explored Antarctica and mapped the entire globe. They made monuments that we would have difficulty recreating with our modern techniques and equipment...

Then tragedy struck in the form of a global cataclysm. They were not expecting it. The disaster was so terrible that most humans perished and many animal species became extinct. Those humans that did survive were forced to live like animals while the Earth recovered.  Memories faded, and knowledge disappeared. Society began again from scratch, returning to pagan beliefs and simplistic lives. But there were some that survived who somehow managed to remember more, that retained some of the advanced techniques and ideas that others had forgotten - and had the foresight and dedication to warn future generations of the next cataclysm. Knowing that it would be more than 10,000 years before the cataclysm recurred, they had to allow for certain possibilities: that in the year 2012 we could be speaking a brand new language, following unpredictable religions and using any sort of numbering system. If they were to leave us clues to help us survive, those clues would need to be big and solid enough to last 10,000 years; and coded so as to be unambiguous - regardless of the culture that interpreted them. Some modern humans, of various backgrounds and disciplines, are working towards deciphering what they have left us.

 This is just a small portion of my online book, Survive 2012 - a look into possible ways our world might end, and how to survive. Available in bookstores sometime before 2012, fingers-crossed...

We are on the verge of cloning humans, of aping God. Regardless of ethics and laws, it will happen - for whenever scientists have had the ability to do something, they haven't been able to resist - it is in their nature. On the other side of the coin, when there are not enough clues to solve a puzzle, when none of their predecessors have made quality in-roads, they have rattled off stock answers and moved on to something easier. These unsolved mysteries are typically of a historical nature - our scientists have been unable to observe the processes in real-time, and have chosen not to make unscientific guesses. The tasks have by default been given to the independent researchers, the untrained pseudo-scientists, the men and women with imagination, verve and daring. The rebels.

This book pulls together a number of these mysteries. They all relate to the potential for a global cataclysm that may be just around the corner.

Most of the topics are much debated, with radicals and the establishment taking opposing views. Is the Sphinx 5,000 or 12,000 years old? Did the biblical flood really happen?  And if it did was it regional or global? Did modern man once live in the ocean? How was it that separate ancient societies all had the ability to shift giant blocks?

We shall look at ideas that have been endorsed by great thinkers, yet are ignored by the esteemed scholars of today. The idea of a pole shift had the agreement of Einstein; the existence of Atlantis was described by Plato; global cataclysms were hinted at by Darwin.

And we will see evidence that orthodox science has chosen to ignore, evidence that fails to fit their precious paradigms. Artifacts showing human civilisations existing 100,000 or even millions of years ago. Proof of a cataclysmic poleshift 12,000 years ago. And evidence that is strangely missing, such as the missing links of evolution.

Helping bind these topics together I will present some new information concerning mythical creatures and cosmic rays. And I shall explain how a global network of monuments was created for a common purpose - to warn us of our potential extinction. Hopefully these ideas will spark enough debate so that the things we treasure, and the species that we are, continue for a long, long time.

It is aparent to me at least , that teh world is permiating a real sence of foreboding in teh last couple of years, an dthe date 2012 is far more significant than I think we know. read the illuminatus trilogy for more insight and the Masonic significance of this date, the mayans knew of it's importance for they still obtained the knowledge of before.

The observations made regarding the 'roaming of stars', and the increased brightness of the the North Star, can be put down to changes in concentrations and distributions of pollution in the the troposphere. The increased mass in the atmosphere bends the light reaching the earth, causing a wobble in the position and incandescence of stars. In light of recent IPCC findings on global climate change, I think the effect of stars on our future seems to pale in comparison.

I have believed that the world will end in 2012 for almost a year now and it all started when one of my best friends brother was trippin on peyote and talked to god. he told my friend to tell me that god told him the world will end in 2012.Then her other brother talked to god and god told him the same thing. since then i have herd of all this bad stuff that will happen in 2012(this was from people that i never told about the thaught of 2012). then they make all thies movies about the world ending. Today i was sitting in lunch detention and was bored so i thaugt i would see if there was anyone els that thaught the world would end(not necessarily in 2012) then i saw this site and i am shaking because it is true.the world really will end. We(me and my friends)have made plans and we will live it up in 2012, and i suggest you do the same.

anyone else dream of the year 2012? anything about mountains? angels? (personally, i don't believe in angels, but one spoke to me in my dream about 2012.) the color red or white, or the 'crest of the red dragon?' so many apocolyptic dreams lately. but maybe it doesn't mean anything. we shall see.
(16.05.2004, 11:58)

I had some weird dream of the sky turning red, fireballs flying from the sky, people hurrying about. I don't know about the whole bible code thing, because anyone could make deductions based on scripts. It's like, look: 32498234. THAT'S THE CODE THAT PREDICTS THE END OF THE WORLD! We're all gunna die in two seconds.

Xoe Stone:
Again, I see mention of the likelihood of death & destruction on a cataclysmic scale. Yes, massive geological & environmental changes are/will be occurring, as much by our own (human) activity, as by Universal & Planetary forces beyond our control, yet NOT beyond our understanding or our ability to mitigate or minimize in terms of damage control. - - It seems many assume and/or take for granted our own complicity in the situation, as well as our not-so-inconsiderable power when we work together toward a common goal. Thus far many Western practices have been destructive toward the planet & its systems; including many in fields related to/involved in Science. - - I hope those of you who feel Science is part of the problem, will also consider that religion/spirituality play a huge role in muddying the Truth and "waters" surrounding events currently happening to/upon Earth & its inhabitants. We tend to look through the lens of our own biases & limitations. Our Ancestors knew many things that defy our current levels of knowledge, wisdom, and technology - all of which indicate they were at least as advanced as us in the present, perhaps more so. Whether this indicates alien - "interference/activity" is really beside the point, as is the supposed impact of a god-like intelligence. We (humans) are in a very real sense the "gods/goddesses" of this new age & it will be us who decide the course and write the realities of our collective future.

dont you think that it is a little bit weird that all these people have the same thaughts,dreams,and ideas about the world ending? We have never talked to each other and yet we all have the same thaughts. I think it is weird that people who dont know eachother and still have the same theries.
(18.05.2004, 13:38)

alright guys..i havn't had any weird dreams about the world ending, or being high and god telling me the world is going to end in 2014. my theory is that man cannot live with sucha great weapon as the nuclear bomb. Man and man cannot coexist without hurting others. My theory is that acouple countries with drop the nuke and we'll all die. But if we kill the people plotting the world's end we might live. - On the year 2014 the world just randomly having a catlysm or whatever i guess is possible though. but what would happen to lead to that?

It seems to me that the predictions of the Mayan people (our interpretations) could mean many different things. Perhaps the end of this age isn't going to be any sort of natural cataclysm, but maybe something manmade. I've done some research into 'peak oil' and the effects it might have on society and from the statistics I've found (, Saudi Arabia's oil production is going to peak in 2012. That's the last significant oil reserve on earth that still hasn't started to decline in production. Many of you will know how significant that will be for our society. The last bastion of a dwindling nonrenewable resource we depend on for our way of life will start its decline the same year the Mayans predict is the end of this age...That disturbs me considering how much all the nuclear powers need oil to keep the war machine (and everything else) churning. Perhaps the destruction some are dreaming of will be caused by us. We can only start to comprehend what these messages left for us might mean.

For eons people have made predictions, published evidence, shown formulas, created models, prayed, prophesized and guess what? They were all wrong. Who knows when it will happen? Not me, not you, not the best and brightest! It will come when it comes. The best advice. Hope for the best, prepare for the worst.

Live in fear of what may or may not happen, and I hope that you find warmth, comfort and love in that fear you cling to. Let's all focus on something big and negative happening and count down to our own doom. Wouldnt you rather spend the time enjoying life? focus on the positives people. Love, life, friendship.. I'm going out smiling, 2012 or otherwise.

this is walderfull but i will like to have information of the spanish vertion of this book

The North Star is somewhat brighter during the summer time. It always has been. However, I've noticed more and more falling/shooting stars in the skies at night. I've been seeing at least one every other week for the past 5 months now. I'm in the central part of the U.S. and it's now occuring more and more. I've had no strange dreams of the 'apocolyptic future' but some of the things you people are typing up are just ridiculous. Just wait it out, don't freak out. (Peyote is a spiritual drug, you see and usually can interact with 'spirit entities/hallucinations' when on the drug.)

Psychic Man:
I'm psychic too. My psychic abilities come from eating Ring-Dings or donuts. I predict that in 2010 a giant clown will come down on a surfboard from the heavens, fart nuclear gas, and we will all turn into monkeys and eat each other. I caution you, lock yourselves in your basement. You might be safe there. Start hiding now just to be sure. Please people, do as I say.

Steven Beesley:
Chinese Winter Solstice: - - Is it also by chance that the Chinese Winter Solstice falls on the 21st December of each year and that end of all days is also predicted as 21st December, 2012? [ from Rob: it is a solstice everywhere on that date, not just China. I believe it is the year that is important, and the date is just to emphasise the worst will happen ]
(30.12.2004, 22:52)

well, i don't really know what to believe. But i do know one thing, the doomsday 2012 theory scares the hell out of me. All the pieces seem to fit the puzzle. It makes sense, the earth must recyle itself sometime. everyday humankind is damaging this beautiful planet. nature always finds a way to survive. Our solar system, like our planet, is on a cycle. 2012 is the beginning/end of another cycle. The more articles i read about doomsday the stronger i believe this event will happen. It definitely scares me, but it also motivates me to enjoy my life and helps to put things into perspective.
(06.01.2005, 16:21)

I have heard alot about "The End Of Days", "Dooms Day", "Judgment Day". What ever you choose to call it. Different times different theories. And the only one I hold any kind of stock in is 2012. I have seen this number from more than one sorce. Mathmatical logarythims, the Mayans, The Tora, and The Bible, all conect 2012. But, am I scared? No not scared but I am definetly curious.
