There are plenty of predictions out there about what will happen in 2012, some more legitimate than others. Forget about Nibiru and the Planet X predictions, we’re not going to see the complete destruction of our world. And personally, I doubt there will be a single massive event that occurs at the exact time of 11:11 AM, December 21 2012. Instead, these predictions point to an era of great change, with one phase of life ending and another beginning.

According to the Mayans, the era that ends in 2012 has been dominant for the past five thousand, one hundred and twenty five years. One thing we can be assured of is that human life existed before this cycle began, so the chances that life will continue afterwards are pretty good. So don’t worry about 2012 end of the world predictions, they make for profitable Hollywood movies but they aren’t anywhere near reality.

So there is an awareness that a change will be taking place, but unfortunately, we can only make general predictions about the form this change will be in. No one knows for sure what will happen at this date, and you shouldn’t trust anyone who says they do.

One very simple way to predict what could happen in the future is by looking at the way we live today. Is there anything about the way we currently live that is unsustainable? What do we do that can’t last? The answer to this is simple enough: Pretty much everything.
