12-21-12 The World Didn't End - Or Did It?


The words you speak become the house you live in.
Discussing what's wrong and what used-to-be are happy life killers. 


2012-2013

As another new year begins, no one will be the same. Again, time will have proven that what was thought to be the end of the world on December 21, 2012, did not occur.  Or did it?

According to the Mayan Calendar, the 21st of December marks the end of the Macha & the beginning of the Pacha.  In this instance, it signals the end of individualism & the beginning of collectivism.  

Scientists know that this marks the end of an anthropocentric life and the beginning of a biocentric life.
  
Anthropocentrism (1) is the position that human beings are the central or most significant species (more so than animal species), or the assessment of reality through an exclusively human perspective. The term can be used interchangeably with humanocentrism, while the first concept can also be referred to as human supremacy. Anthropocentrism is a major concept in the field of environmental ethics and environmental philosophy, where it is often considered to be the root cause of problems created by human interaction with the environment; however, it is profoundly embedded in our culture and conscious acts.

Biocentrism (2) encompasses all environmental ethics that “extend the status of moral object from human beings to all living things in nature.”

The four main pillars of a biocentric outlook are:
  1. Humans and all other species are members of Earth's community.
  2. All species are part of a system of interdependence.
  3. All living organisms pursue their own "good" in their own ways.
  4. Human beings are not inherently superior to other living things.

This may be a difficult time for many who have not had the life experience of knowing without seeing; the end of hatred & the beginning of love; the end of lies & the beginning of truth; the end of sadness & the beginning of joy; the end of division & the beginning of unity.

On a lighter note, it may be as simple as knowing or having something that you thought no one else had or knew, only to find that 99 others had it too and you just didn't know it or see it yet, kind of like the 100th Monkey Theory! (3)

Regardless of appearances, be calm and know that the best is truly yet to come.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

This is a theme to be developed so for those who choose to bet on mankind, you are invited to share your experiences for the good of humankind here.
