That's right – another apocalypse looms on the horizon! This one's scheduled for the year 2012, which gives you plenty of time to learn how to field-dress a javelina and operate that generator you bought after the last big winter storm. In today's NY Times Magazine, Benjamin Anastas reports from the Edge of Forever, interviewing sages such as Jose Arguelles, founder of 1987's Harmonic Convergence. And I guess if we had gotten THAT one right, maybe the world wouldn't be ending, huh?
From the article:
"The post-2012 world will be a world of universal telepathy,” Arguelles wrote me recently from New Zealand, where he has gone to prepare for the transition. Since 1993, when he claims to have received a new prophecy in Hawaii, he has been calling himself Valum Votan, Closer of the Cycle. “We’ll be literally living in a new time,” Arguelles said, “by a 13-month, 28-day synchronometer that will facilitate our telepathy by keeping us in harmony with everything all the time. There will be a lot fewer of us, with simple lifestyles, solar technology, garden culture and lots of telepathic communication.” As for the many who “have not evolved spiritually enough to know that there are other dimensions of reality,” Arguelles predicts they will be taken away in “silver ships.”
