Daniel Pinchbeck – a 2012′er I can actually get behind
I’ve always avoided the 2012 Doom Merchants and their far fetched forecasts of apocalyptic disaster. For decades they’ve been selling the paranoid paranoia and hocking self-published books typed in a priori fonts of unaccountability. The sky will boil. Water to blood. Ohh oh your city lies in dust, my friend. Brochures of a wasteland vacation for the cataclysmic tourist. And now that will call for the holocaust opens in less than 2 years, all the sopranos are changing the lyrics to our favorite song.
Well, we never really meant that the world will explode into shards, little boys and girls, it was just metaphor. An allegory for the awakening that is truly at hand! What I really meant is… well it’s all explained in my new revolutionary book that will change the way you see the world! Step right up!
Daniel Pinchbeck and Graham Hancock discuss the real 2012… great stuff in here
How much money has been made off some ancient calendar whose scribes figured they’ve done enough heavy lifting for the time being? Map out 2013 later, we’re late to the Shaman’s Ayahuasca vision quest ceremony! How’s this theory: It’s the end of an epoch where one astrological cycle ends and a new one begins.
In fact, things have never been better! We’re in great shape. Look at how much money we all have! Look at all the businesses that are booming and we all just got a raise! Oh wait, scratch that. Well, at least our water is clean, right? Oh yeah. Well at least we aren’t in the throes of everlasting holy war. What’s that you say?
Terence McKenna’s thoughts on 2012
I used to think the apocalypse would arrive in one fell atomic swoop that would turn metropolises into toxic dystopias overnight. We’d take to wearing dusty leather jackets and football pads instantly and battle for gas to power our mutant hot rods while in search for clean water. Unfortunately it’s not turning out so romantic. This wasteland is arriving in a slow burn, but the panorama isn’t endless desert…it’s a skyline of the world’s tallest buildings, unfinished and abandoned.
What’s that in YOUR wallet? Worthless paper and a plastic card issued by a defaulted bank. Hopefully you’ve been saving for a rainy day because it’s only a matter of time before the next big hurricane hits the Gulf and all that oil and Corexit mix into our atmosphere. And it’s not just the U.S. either, China is screwed too. Who runs Bartertown? I’d like to get in on a shanty that’s Thunderdome adjacent.
It certainly seems grim when you actually examine the reality. What’s even more depressing is how we think we can’t make a difference. That it’s either go and molotov cocktail one of Tony Hayward’s palaces, or shrink to apathy. Someone very VERY close to me was dumbfounded as to why I was criticizing him for continuing to buy BP gasoline for his car (Arco is BP also btw)… “but I was running out of gas, what am I supposed to do?” The idea is that we don’t matter, what’s me going to a farmer’s market gonna do? What’s me not using plastic trash bags gonna do? What’s me riding my bike more gonna do? I don’t know, but something has got to change and getting that Prius isn’t enough… and another fucking Woodstock won’t either. The same hippie fucks who love to kiss their own ass and remind us of how they changed the world are exactly the same ones who are ruining it.
We can do this… for real this time! It all starts with YOU, with ME. How we live our day to day lives. What we buy and what we support. What we share with our friends and community. Corporate America doesn’t care about you and Government works in too broad a stroke. It all about how WE think and encourage upon others…AND REALLY LIVE IT. A Neil Young song won’t cut it this time around. If this sounds corny to you, then it’s exactly why things will never change.
Zeitgeist Addendum – Illustrating the Venus Project’s design for a currency free society
So we’ve got to turn this thing around, and apparently we’ve got less than two years. So what’s the deal? Is the answer a new shift of awareness? Daniel Pinchbeck, proposes we start by building a community first and the shift will spread inevitably. Check out Evolver.net…seems legit. What about McKenna’s Archaic Revival where we revert to the knowledge of the Shamans and psychedelics? The Venus Project? Aliens? Anarchy? Absolute REAL change is vital & necessary. Because WE are too big to fail!- Cornbluth
