The powers that be on the planet Earth that profess to be the most knowledgeable in regards to space technology, NASA, space.com, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, et al, have guaranteed us all that the sun will rise on the morning of December 22, 2012, and the world will not end because of the almost “planetary alignment” happening on the winter solstice of December 21, 2012 at 11:11 AM GMT.
On this date the sun will appear to be in the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, in what is known as the Galactic Equator.
The happenings of the day include the planet Venus rising first in the eastern sky before daybreak, followed by the planet Mercury, and the Milky Way’s star, our Sun makes its appearance.
Now that’s not all there is to see, as after that, the planet Pluto then rises, as Venus and Mercury and the Sun make their way across the Celestial sky, and finally the planet Mars arises, the five planetary objects moving across the heavens on this day of the winter solstice.
And I should think that at sunset over the Pacific Ocean, the view of our beautiful sun setting over the water, followed by the planet Mars making its exit into the darkness would be a vision that embodies all that is Space.
It is at exactly 5:05 PM GMT, more commonly referred to as Greenwich Mean Time, that the sun will be exactly on the Galactic Equator, and the age of Aquarius will begin.
Perhaps the term, the new age of man would be more apropos, however the term age of Aquarius is actually the correct term.
The Mayans referred to all of this Celestial movement at this time and place in the planet’s history as the “sacred tree,” as it is written in the folklore of the Maia, as well as many other cultures around the world. It has numerous different names such as the tree of life, the sacred tree of life, the world tree and the sacred cross. The Mayan term “sacred tree” is an astronomical reference to the cross made by the Galactic equator and the ecliptic near the center of the galaxy. The ecliptic is the path of the Sun, as seen from the earth.
It’s amazing how the Mayans could predict this solar event, just by looking at the stars with no telescopes, and reading that far into the future and being that mathematically perfect as to reach out thousands of years and get it right, exactly.
Kinda makes you wonder who were the intelligent ones, as the human race now considers itself to be at its most intelligent point of all, but that story does not always ring true.
Case in point, 99% of human DNA is shared by chimpanzees, making us only one percent different than a chimpanzee. That means that that one percent difference is what it takes to become a human being instead of a chimpanzee, with all of our intelligence and mathematical and science skills and whatnot.
So just imagine for a minute if you would, intelligent life that does not hail from the planet Earth, now I realize that this is a broad statement, and we have no proof of any existence of intelligent life from anywhere else except the planet earth, but if these space travelers that we have been reaching out to, with radio telescopes, and manned space missions, from outer space, if these forms of intelligent life, supposedly from other planets, were just one percent smarter than us, like the DNA comparison I made between humans and chimpanzees, then they would see us as chimpanzees as well, not worthy of attention or communication.
Think about that for a minute or two, the thought really boggles the mind.
Have a great night, heck even have a big party, a planetary alignment party, and celebrate what hasn’t happened for 25,800 years.
And if all goes well, I’ll see you tomorrow.
And if it doesn’t, I’ll see you on the other side.
I’ll be the one with the red rose in my lapel, smiling, hand extended in friendship.
