In reviewing how Mainstream Media is presenting the ideas of 2012, one consistent meme is "the end of time," with all the biblical, apocryphal images and meanings, which ultimately make the equation:
"End of time" = "End of the world"
What if this equation, implicit in all modern media, is nothing more than a basic mis-identification/mis-interpretation of what meaning was intended? What if the "end of time" means just that — the end of time as we’ve conceived of it?
What is time? Time is the measurement of our planet’s rotation on it’s axis, as well as it’s rotation around the Sun. So we keep time by the rotation of the earth, and it’s most obvious expression: day and night on the planet.We keep time with a twelve hour clock, muting the strong daily rhythmic cycle that occurs on a 24-hour basis.
What if time were kept differently? What if we all decided there was a much better way to "keep time" and all were inspired to adopt this new method of time-keeping due to its obvious superiority?
This is the promise of 2012. That we will re-discover basic methods of observing, and therefore connecting to, the cosmic order. Nothing more than that (no need to end the entire world in a gigantic flood, no dramatic huge physical deal) but nothing less than that: a fundamental realignment of one of the basic premises upon which we have not only measured the days within our individual lives, but our history, our ancestry.
Time is a completely relative construct, a relative hierarchy; it requires a completely different context when we’re off our planet. Time is tied to geology; geology is time frozen in rocks. Geology ties time to the Earth, incorporating time into the very material of the planet.
