I’ve always been fascinated by the 2012 predictions (and predictions as a whole really).
I don’t actually believe the world will end, and I’m not even sure anything will happen at all (though there are some fascinating facts around how unique of a point-in-time it actually will be for our planet and solar system – so you never know).
In any case, I have to admit that I’m very excited that I’ll likely be alive to experience the actual date.
Think about it.
These predictions were made a couple thousand years ago. Thousand. That’s a long time for humans. There have been many generations between now and then, but this generation, the one we are all currently living in…this generation gets to actually experience the date.
Something that people have talked about for a very very very long time now and we won’t have to speculate, decipher, or really even think about it after the 21st of this month (just about a week away now actually)…because we’ll finally know. We’ll have experienced it.
How cool is that?
