According to the Popol Vuh, a book compiling details of creation accounts known to the K'iche' Maya of the Colonial-era highlands, we are living in the fourth world. The Popol Vuh describes the first three creations that the gods failed in making and the creation of the successful fourth world where men were placed. In the Maya Long Count, the previous creation ended at the start of a 14th b'ak'tun.
The previous creation ended on a long count of 188.8.131.52.19. Another 184.108.40.206.19 will occur on December 20, 2012, followed by the start of the 14th b'ak'tun, 220.127.116.11.0, on December 21, 2012.
The Calendar doesn't end, neither does the world end, it's just that the cycle it describes comes to an end, and another begins
These are a certain frequency range occurance of the One energy (Zero Point Energy/consciousness) that is decending upon man. Bolon Yokte is Scalar Wave Potentiality. Reality is being compressed into our (scalar) waves of potentiality (focus, think the portal inside of the DNA, the 2 strands are the potential high & low frequency & the middle is your experience) by way of the Fibonacci cycle of compression/expansion.
The Christ (a perfectly chrystalized torsion field of perfect geometry/aura which allows for the free flow at speeds faster than light of Zero Point Energy) is coming as all of us… our consciousness is chrystalizing to enable it to hold the higher resonances of consciousness required to become out light bodies. This has happened before and will happen again, but it has been extremely long since it has happened like this! Just wait… as the days pass the compression will exponentially increase until we are compressed into the eye of the needle, the eye of God, the Black hole of conssciousness which flips polarities… the point of energetic orgasm of consciousness experience.

It was a sci-fi one where the Earth was destroyed somehow and everyone and everything was transported off to find another planet. all the animals on one, all the trees/plants on another and all the humans on a third. Then it turns out they 'don't need' the plant ship and it gets sent off into the void. Manned only by one hairy guy and a couple of droids. I always thought that'd be the best job ever, limitless Nature and no humans! Just can't remember the name of the film...
NASA has spied the best candidate yet for a life-bearing world beyond our solar system in the newly discovered planet Kepler-22b. It has given all hope to intensify the search for our neighbours in the universe.
Bill Borucki, Kepler’s lead scientist, said, “If it has a surface, it ought to have a nice temperature.”
Natalie Batahla, the Kepler deputy science chief, said, “It’s right in the middle of the habitable zone. The other exciting thing is that it orbits a star very, very similar to our own sun. It’s so exciting to imagine the possibilities.”
PALENQUE, Mexico (Reuters) - If you are worried the world will end next year based on the Mayan calendar, relax: the end of time is still far off.
So say Mayan experts who want to dispel any belief that the ancient Mayans predicted a world apocalypse next year.
The Mayan calendar marks the end of a 5,126 year old cycle around December 21, 2012, which should bring the return of Bolon Yokte, a Mayan god associated with war and creation.
Author Jose Arguelles called the date "the ending of time as we know it" in a 1987 book that spawned an army of Mayan theorists, whose speculations on a cataclysmic end abound online. But specialists meeting at this ancient Mayan city in southern Mexico say it merely marks the termination of one period of creation and the beginning of another.
"We have to be clear about this. There is no prophecy for 2012," said Erik Velasquez, an etchings specialist at the the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). "It's a marketing fallacy."
The National Institute of Anthropological History in Mexico has been trying to quell the barrage of forecasters predicting the apocalypse. "The West's messianic thinking has distorted the world view of ancient civilizations like the Mayans," the institute said in a statement.
In the Mayan calendar, the long calendar count begins in 3,114 BC and is divided into roughly 394-year periods called Baktuns. Mayans held the number 13 sacred and the 13th Baktun ends next year.
Sven Gronemeyer, a researcher of Mayan codes from La Trobe University in Australia, who has been trying to decode the calendar, said the so-called end day reflects a transition from one era to the next in which Bolon Yokte returns.
"Because Bolon Yokte was already present at the day of creation ... it just seemed natural for the Mayan that Bolon Yokte will again be present," he said.
Of the the approximately 15,000 registered glyphic texts found in different parts of what was then the Mayan empire, only two mention 2012, the Institute said.
"The Maya did not think about humanity, global warming or predict the poles would fuse together," said Alfonso Ladena, a professor from the Complutense University of Madrid. "We project our worries on them."
Using new reconstructions of vegetation stretching back 2,000 years, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies climatologist Benjamin Cook and colleagues found that forest-clearing by Mayan farmers worsened drought conditions in the area.
In fact, past research has shown similarly that the ancient South American Nazca civilization (known for large geoglyphs called Nazca lines ) may have caused its own demise by clear-cutting large swaths of forest.
In the case of the Mayans, how did relatively primitive farmers manage to affect the weather? When the Mayans cleared forests, they exposed land surface with a higher albedo, or reflectivity, than the dark-green forest canopy. This land surface reflected energy back into the atmosphere rather than absorbing it, lessening the amount of energy on the land surface available to do things like convect water vapor to form clouds and thus rain. The result, Cook said, was a decline in precipitation by 10 percent to 20 percent.
With less rain, the soil dried out, so any extra energy went to warming the surface rather than evaporating water. The result was a rise in surface temperature by 0.9 degrees Fahrenheit (0.5 degrees Celsius). The lack of rainfall and boost in heat would have been bad news for a society whose survival depended on their farmlands.
