Background to this topic


According to the Mayan Calendar there will be changes to the world on December 21st. 2012.  This is the day in the Gregorian calendar which the Mayan civilisation have marked as being the first day of the 14th b'ak'tun.  Some interpret the end of the 13th b'aktun as the "end of the world as we know it" and opinion varies widely regarding what this means.  According to astronomers it foretells an alignment of our Sun with the centre of the Milky Way galaxy.  Some believe there will be a shift in the Earth's magnetic poles or that solar activity will cause major changes to the planet (as depicted in the Hollywood film "2012").  Others believe that the new b'aktun will mark a change in human consciousness.  There are a wide variety of beliefs ranging from the spiritual to the practical.  2012 may be the year when humanity faces the prospect of scarce natural resources.  It may be the year of the Apocalypse.  On the other hand It may mean nothing at all.
