Time: Our interpretation and the Misconceptions


Today is a monumental day, for it is the last repetitive date we will see in our lifetime,

I’m of course speaking of today’s date 12 December 2012 (12/12/12).  The next one is slated to be a little less than one thousand years from now.  Be that as it may, the way in which man has measured time has always been the same, but different.  On the surface, past and current civilizations have always seemed to measure time on a linear plane.

Ancient civilizations, such as the ancient Mayans and the ancient Egyptians, heavily relied on the sun, but nonetheless, recorded events in chronological order of their happenings.  What is also amazing is that these past civilizations also drafted astrological predictions within a well defined chronological order as well.

Of course, of the two ancient cultures, the Ancient Mayans are among the most popular in our generation, due heavily unto the many theories about the world coming to an end 12/21/12.  This is a common belief among the masses thanks in part to Hollywood media, coupled with the fact that hardly anyone reads nor thinks these days.  If one were to read more on the Ancient Mayan civilizations, they would not be able to find any text that says the world will come to an end on December 21st, 2012.
