December 2012 - The Mayan Calendar ends, Nostradamus predicts the end of the world, Terence McKenna's Timewave Zero theory - could they all be wrong?
2009 - 2012 was referred to by Nostradamus as the Time of Troubles. He predicted this three-year period to be full of war, despair, and evil, but also of hope and promise. The hope and promise comes after the time of turbulence. The hope and promise is 2012.
On 21 December 2012 the Mayans believed that all of the planets in our solar system would align like never before. They knew their stuff - their astrological calculations were more accurate than we can calculate today. On this date, their calendar - or time as they knew it - just ends. Theories cover a lot of ground ranging from nuclear holocaust to Harmonic Convergence of cosmic energy flowing through the earth, cleansing it and raising it to a higher level of vibration, and along the way they include the death of two-thirds of humanity and the north and south poles will split - you get the picture.
There is also a concept rooted in the I Ching and mathematics called Timewave Zero, discovered and spoken about by Terence McKenna. In its graphed form, Timewave Zero peaks and troughs when Novelty is featured - Novelty meaning dynamic change in the world - newness, stuff happening, action - as opposed to static habituation. When Novelty is graphed over time, a fractal waveform known as Timewave Zero forms. The graph shows exactly when, but never where Novelty is occurring - increasing and decreasing. The bigger the Novelty spike on the graph means the higher the level of Novelty is occurring. All great Novelty periods in earth's existence feature on this graph, including the formation of earth 4 billion years ago, when dinosaurs became extinct, the ice age, during the 60's, Hitler's rise to power and 9/11 to name a few.
According to Timewave Zero, great periods of Novelty are coming in November 2008 (this year), October 2010, with the Novelty spike going entirely off the graph on 21 December 2012. (N. B. Editor's note written 20 November 2008 - now that November is almost behind us, I can see that this significant Novelty spike represented the arrival of Barack Obama - the first African-American president in history. )
Here are three respected independent theories, all predicting something huge occurring in December 2012. Now what does this all mean you may be thinking? Some doomsdaysayers believe it's the end of the world - we probably are overdue for obliteration by a large chunk of something hurtling straight towards our planet - but there is another theory.
The time is certainly nigh for a few things. In addition to being hit by a meteor flying through space, nuclear war or catastrophic weather anomalies, there is a possibility we are on the verge of discovering such concepts as time travel, contact with life from other planets and some kind of spiritual revolution where our belief patterns will be drastically changed by what we learn - an age of enlightenment, the Age of Aquarius, call it what you will.
National Security can no longer credibly denounce the huge number of very straight, sober and respected people who have come together, and are on record speaking out against the cover up surrounding what we know about life on other planets. These people include the former Head of US Army Foreign Technology at the Pentagon, Air Force Lieutenants, US Presidents, Astronauts who have walked on the moon, elite members of craft recovery operations (that supposedly don't exist), senior employees of NASA, respected public figures and large numbers of civilians who have witnessed evidence firsthand that there is a massive cover up going on.
Consider there is a strong possibility that the truth may finally be revealed in 2012.
"Mission control, we have a UFO pacing our position, request instructions. "
NASA Astronaut Cady Coleman, NASA Transmission - Shuttle Mission STS-73
"At no time, when the astronauts were in space were they alone: there was a constant surveillance by UFOs. "
NASA Astronaut Scott Carpenter
"All Apollo and Gemini flights were followed, both at a distance and sometimes also quite closely, by space vehicles of extraterrestrial origin - flying saucers, or UFOs, if you want to call them by that name. Every time it occurred, the astronauts informed Mission Control, who then ordered absolute silence. " Maurice Chatelain, former Chief of NASA Communications Systems.
"Behind the scenes, high-ranking Air Force officers are soberly concerned about UFOs. But through official secrecy and ridicule, many citizens are led to believe that unknown flying objects are nonsense. " Roscoe Hillenkoetter, former CIA Director in a public statement, 1960.
"Let there be no doubt. Alien technology harvested from the infamous saucer crash in Roswell, N. Mex. , in July 1947 led directly to the development of the integrated circuit chip, laser and fibre optic technologies, particle beams, electromagnetic propulsion systems, depleted uranium projectiles, stealth capabilities, and many others. How do I know? I was in charge! I think the kids on this planet are wise to the truth, and I think we ought to give it to them. I think they deserve it. "
Colonel Philip Corso, Army Intelligence officer, former Head of Foreign Technology at the U. S. Army's Research and Development Department at the Pentagon. Four years Director of Intelligence on President Eisenhower's White House National Security Staff.
"We must insist upon full access to discs recovered. In the LA case the Army grabbed it and would not let us have it for cursory examination. "
J Edgar Hoover
"The phenomenon of UFOs is real. I know that there are scientific organisations which study the problem. It must be treated seriously. "
Former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev
"I looked out the window and saw this white light. It was zigzagging around. I went up to the pilot and said, “Have you ever seen anything like that?" He was shocked and he said, “Nope. " And I said to him: “Let's follow it!" We followed it for several minutes. It was a bright white light. We followed it to Bakersfield, and all of a sudden to our utter amazement it went straight up into the heavens. When I got off the plane I told Nancy all about it. "
President Ronald Reagan (Describing his 1974 UFO encounter to veteran newsman Norman C. Miller, Washington bureau chief for the Wall Street Journal. )
"I strongly recommend that there be a committee investigation of the UFO phenomena. I think we owe it to the people to establish credibility regarding UFOs and to produce the greatest possible enlightenment on this subject. "
President Gerald Ford
"The US Air Force assures me that UFO's pose no threat to National Security. "
President John F Kennedy
"Extraterrestrial contact is a real phenomenon. The Vatican is receiving much information about extraterrestrials and their contacts with humans from its Nuncios (embassies) in various countries, such as Mexico, Chile and Venezuela. "
Monsignor Corrado Balducci, Vatican theologian insider close to the Pope. Monsignor Balducci is on a Vatican commission looking into extraterrestrial encounters, and how to cope with the emerging general realization of extraterrestrial contact.
At the end of this article, there is simple list of names who confirm this writing on the wall. This list is ever-growing, and it will continue to grow because the truth cannot be hidden forever.
21 December 2012 - What is scheduled to occur on this date I don't know, but there is weight to the opinion of science that our planet is overdue for a number of global catastrophes. Whatever is going to occur on this date (and something will) it is possible this will be the catalyst to prompt a visit on a scope that cannot be kept under wraps by the Air Force or National Security. This visit is likely to be crucial for our own survival.
We are too unique and too special a species to be allowed to destroy ourselves, even if it is our lesson. We also will not be destroyed for the same reason. Intelligent beings far more evolved and advanced than us would not let this occur. It is inconceivable to envisage that intelligent beings with technological capabilities to prevent a catastrophe on this planet, would just stand by and let it happen because they don't want to mess with the interplanetary code not to interfere. They've been interfering for decades. I didn't make all those quotes up.
Following would be a scenario of events that National Security seeks to avoid.
When the initial shock of a visit has set in, the people won't stare open mouthed any longer. People will act in a variety of haphazard ways as people tend to do. During this delicate period of unrest, human greed will be intensified because of opportunity, and distractibility will play a hand in much usurping and attempted usurping of power. There won't just be looting of cities going on, there will be looting of countries.
"We had a job to do, whether right or wrong, to keep the public from getting excited. "
Dr J Allen Hynek, Director of the US Air Force top secret project Blue Book.
During this time of off-the-chart Novelty on 21 December 2012 when we can again focus, we will learn from our visitors. We will be presented with an opportunity to learn how to use an additional percentage of our brains - nothing sinister like brainwashing - but we will be taught. We will learn knowledge from their technology to transverse time, space, and levels of consciousness to a different degree than we can presently do now. It will be a time of chaotic cleansing and exciting new beginnings.
"When the long awaited solution to the UFO problem comes, I believe that it will prove to be not merely the next small step in the march of science, but a mighty and totally unexpected quantum leap. "
Dr J Allen Hynek, Director of the US Air Force top secret project Blue Book.
10 percent, or whatever that piddy percentage is that we currently use of our brains is universally embarrassing - our actions testify that there is plenty of room for our conscience to evolve. Why would we have the capacity to use it if we're never going to get the opportunity?
One day our race will look back and see the humans of today as far from wise - we spend billions and billions of dollars every year trying to figure out how we can kill each other better. The logic of power-mongers boggles my mind - they have long lost sight. The money is going in the wrong direction and the mentality of our leaders has no logic. We are a race with plenty of room to evolve.
On December 2012 and its aftermath, if time travel is discovered with the aid of alien education, this would explain why the graph of Novelty and time goes off the chart - time just doesn't exist in that form any more - we will have the knowledge to bend these rules. The Mayan Calendar also ends as it has no use after this time. Nostradamus wouldn't have known what to call it but he also saw the end of this chapter of existence as we know it. We are hurtling towards something great - signs of this are everywhere. Synchronicity is everywhere.
"My own present opinion, based on two years of careful study, is that UFOs are probably extraterrestrial devices engaged in something that might very tentatively be termed ‘surveillance’. "
Dr James McDonald, senior physicist at the Institute for Atmospheric Physics and professor in the Department of Meteorology at the University of Arizona before Congress, 1968.
"More than 10,000 sightings have been reported, the majority of which cannot be accounted for by any ‘scientific’ explanation, e. g. that they are hallucinations, the effects of light refraction, meteors, wheels falling from aeroplanes and the like. . . . They have been tracked on radar screens. . . and the observed speeds have been as great as 9,000 mph. I am convinced that these objects do exist and they are not manufactured by any nation on earth. I can therefore see no alternative to accepting the theory that they come from an extraterrestrial source. "
Air Chief Marshall Lord Dowding, Commanding Officer of the RAF during WWII.
"The UFO was bouncing around the 747. (It) was a huge ball with lights running around it. . . Well, I've been involved in a lot of cover-ups with the FAA. When we gave the presentation to the Reagan staff, they had all those people swear that this never happened. But they never had me swear it never happened. I can tell you what I've seen with my own eyes. I've got a videotape. I've got the voice tape. I've got the reports that were filed that will confirm what I've been telling you. "
John Callaghan, FAA Chief of Accidents and Investigations during a videotaped interview for the Disclosure program.
These would be eye-opening days in regards to what human beings are really capable of in a positive sense - and negative, but we've seen the negative all before - it's the positive that's exciting because on a collective and amplified scale we've never done it before - ever. The negative we've been doing for centuries.
Question then - If this is true, what's the point of doing anything - saving money, going to work, what should we be focussing on, doing etc?
The answer is to open your eyes - especially if you're primarily materialistic and consumerist. This is a hugely successful distraction in today's times. Awake from this slumber of brainwashing most of us are under - ask questions, seek answers, look around, see and appreciate the confirmation of your path through heavy synchronicity, meditate on thought, read the signs and make your calculations, seek knowledge. You will feel there is something going on.
Q2 Do I bother saving cans, and making the big move to the country around mid 2012 (just to be early), taking water and food supplies with me?
A: Personally I'll still probably do this :) but this is bigger than moving to the country. I don't think that being in the country or the city will make much of a difference. This is a time we will fear in anticipation - human beings fear the unknown - but for those of us who don't die (through the actions of other humans) - there will be nothing to fear. We will be the luckiest humans to be alive to experience this evolutionary period commencing 21 December 2012. This will be global.
The hype and fear of 2012 will soon start to build - try to resist feeding or joining that hype. From 2009 mild hysteria will begin to form, and it will be contagious. There's a movie coming out called 2012 starring John Cuzack, Thandie Newton & Woody Harrelson about the destruction of the world in December 2012. This movie will raise the topic to the mainstream public and over the next three years, this hysteria will continue to build and it will grow into one large monster. People have a habit of feeding off one another's fears.
Try not to feed the hype - it will not help you, your family or our planet one bit. Instead keep your eyes open and your wits about you - be receptive, change your focus to things that matter (I may write more about this), savour this time and prepare for it because it's going to be one wild ride. There's nothing we can do to stop it, so I suggest riding this wave the best we possibly can.
If you have any interest at all in this subject, I encourage you to learn more - Google Timewave Zero, Novelty Theory (Terence McKenna), 2012, UFO cover ups, anything like this - it's a fascinating subject. Comments, emails, suggestions all welcome. This will be the winter or summer solstice (depending on your hemisphere) like the world has never been seen before.
RIP Terence we miss you.
Most of us haven't started thinking about this topic yet, but soon it will be unescapable. I'm curious as to what you think may occur on this date - if you're not sure, wait a year or two, you'll soon have an opinion. In three years from now, this topic will be dominating conversations worldwide and in four years we may not be here. These writings just serve to help prepare you early for whatever may come.
This theory is more positive, exciting and plausible than the doomsday theories which will soon be coming thick and fast. How do we prepare? Strengthen certain human traits. Regardless of what tomorrow holds you should work on being positive, strong of spirit, receptive, kind, selfless and wise. This is the higher vibration. You should aim to step into this. Your inner voice knows how. You can hear your inner voice if you just shut your brain off. How do you shut your brain off? Meditation.
The path is there and we don't need the light - we have the ability to be able to see in the dark. We all do. You just have to want to know how.
"And don't tell me they were reflections, I know they were solid objects. "
Lieutenant D. A Swimley, USAF in 1953 following the sighting of 8 UFOs that were confirmed on radar and witnessed numerous other people including commercial pilots and police officers.
"UFOs sighted in Indonesia are identical with those sighted in other countries. Sometimes they pose a problem for our Air Defence and once we were obliged to open fire on them. "
Air Marshall Nurjadin Roesmin, Commander in Chief of the Indonesian Air Force in 1967.
"The Air Force had put out a secret order for its pilots to capture UFOs. For the last six months we have been working with a congressional committee investigating official secrecy concerning proof that UFOs are real machines under intelligent control. "
Major Donald Keyhoe, during a live TV broadcast on CBS in 1958 in which he was pulled from the air when he began to deviate from the prepared format of the programme.
The security guard called and said, “Sir, there's a glowing red object hovering right outside the front gate. I've got all the men out here with their weapons drawn. " We lost between 16-18 ICBMs (nuclear tipped Inter Continental Ballistic Missiles) at the same time UFOs were in the area. . . (A high ranking Air Force officer) said, “Stop the investigation; do no more on this and do not write a final report. I heard that many of the guards that reported the incident were sent off to Vietnam. Captain Robert Salas, USAF, during a videotaped interview for the Disclosure program.
The following well-respected people have gone on record, under oath, to testify that they have seen the evidence of UFO intelligence first hand.
Many of these brave people were ridiculed, threatened with the loss of their jobs, denied promotions and accused of mental instability for speaking out. As time goes on however, witnesses are becoming safer in speaking out due to the sheer number of testimonies and the ever-increasing public support.
UFO sightings are increasing in frequency thanks to two areas of modern technology. The first is the fact that almost everyone has a camera to record a potential sighting - many people have one on their mobile phone.
The second is due to our advancements in the areas of weaponry and nuclear warfare. We are for the first time in history becoming a threat to ourselves and probably others.
I applaud the following people for speaking out. Welcome to the biggest cover up that has ever existed.

There are many more names to add to this list but I thought I'd start with a tiny influential few. When you continuously read how these very sober and serious people all collectively affirm the existence of UFOs, it becomes very hard to dispute indeed.
If you find this topic interesting, or perhaps if you don't believe in UFOs, find a documentary titled UFO Documentary - The Greatest Story Ever Denied (2006) - it's easy enough to locate on the web - it's just one of hundreds of documentaries doing a great job of bringing the truth out into the open.

"It was the darndest thing I've ever seen. It was big, it was very bright, it changed colours, and it was about the size of the moon. We watched it for ten minutes, but none of us could figure out what it was. One thing's for sure: I'll never make fun of people who say they've seen unidentified flying objects in the sky. "
Former President of the United States, Jimmy Carter following his sighting along with many others of a UFO at Leary, Georgia in October 1969.
"The Air Force has arrived at the conclusion that a certain number of anomalous phenomena has been produced in Belgian airspace. The numerous testimonies of ground observations. . . . reinforced by the reports of the night March 30-31 (1990) have led us to face the hypothesis that a certain number of unauthorised aerial activities have taken place. The day will undoubtedly come when the phenomenon will be observed with the technological means of detection and collection that won't leave a single doubt about its origin. This should lift a part of the veil that has covered the mystery for a long time; a mystery that continues to be present. But it exists, it is real, and that in itself is an important conclusion. "
Colonel Wilfred De Brouwer, Chief of Operations for the Belgian Air Force in 1990 following a spate of sightings over the country witnessed by hundreds of people. Many of the sightings were confirmed on radar.
