Dire Gnosis " In 1999, I started circulating a booklet called Beyond 2012, listing  information, theories and ideas from diverse sources which predict 2012 as an evolutionary pinnacle; a leap in consciousness; a dimensional shift; an end of linear time; an encounter with an asteroid; mass genetic mutation from solar or cosmic rays; etc. The ideas come from scientists, artists, mystics, alternative Egyptologists, prophets, divinatory systems, shamanic psychonauts, mythology, and Mesoamerican research.....some of it originated before the Mayan Long Count was known about, outside archaeological circles. For example, the McKenna brothers, who found a complex fractal "timewave" encoded in the ancient Chinese I Ching oracle, discovered its 2012-termination point several years before they heard anything about the Mayan Long Count."

Drugs, aliens, spiritualism, impending world catastrophe. If it's New Agey and weird, it's here: A Rosetta Stone for New Age catastrophism! Don't miss: What's New #1, What's New #2, What's New #3, #4, #5.... WARNING! - blue/green/purple/red/yellow text on a black background with a picture of a man staring upwards, lightning shooting into his eyes, with a "ZZzzzap" sound file to hammer the point across. (safe for work, I guess)

The author is a regular contributor to the salvia divinorum magazine. Explains a lot. At least old fashioned acidheads knew how to layout a webpage.

The introduction comes out at 58% good, 42% evil when you rate it for the watermark of God on the gematriculator, which "considers the mathematical patterns in the text of the Holy Bible as God's watermark of authenticity. Thus, the Gematriculator provides only results that are absolutely correct."

So there.

New Jerusalem Cube = Time Cube?

I had to read it twice before I began to understand it, after becoming more acquainted with advanced neurochemistry.

I've been acquainted with advanced neurochemistry too, and my personal acquaintance has informed me that the only difference between today and 2012 is that guys will be wearing less and sleeping with me more.

Also, Frankie Muniz will just vanish from our perception. Like he never existed.

Wow, New Age and Eschatology, two great tastes that taste great together. It's too bad that Christian apocalyptic beliefs get the spotlight so often, this stuff is a lot funnier. Thanks troutf.

I love the Time Cube! It's the best thing on the internet.

"You are all educated stupid!"

sigh I get all misty-eyed just thinking about it...

I confess I can't really read all of it right now. Anyone found something particularly interesting? It lost me when it started mentioning X-Files episodes as evidence of the upcoming 2012 events.

I want to be amused, but then I read the bullshit pretend Egyptology and want to hurl.

Party at my place on January 1, 2013!

This will explain everything.

Must have slack!

The gematriculator ranks my personal homepage as 76% evil. Damn.

It ranks MetaFilter's front page, as of this posting, at 58% good, though.

I can't get it to rank this thread, though. It must be far, far too evil!

Yes, but Shia LeBeouf is the President.

http://blort.meepzorp.com is 51% evil, 49% good.

How disappointing!

All my ex-employers' websites rank at 70% evil or higher.

Also, the word 'business' translates, according to the Genaframpilantinatorthingie, to 666.

The rest of Genafram's site is worth exploring. :-)

Well, the Mayan-calendar kooks aren't the ones occupying the White House at the moment...

Not so. A majority of shareholders are evil, so what they vote goes. It's only as evil as it needs to be.

*sound of finger snap* Damn, somebody beat me to a Mayan-calendar reference.
posted by alumshubby at 11:33 PM on August 20, 2003


alumshubby - well, I'd say it's still fair game, but maybe a la Plep, as I grabbed the sensationalistic angle. Or you could just cover Graham Hancock's oeuvre. That would showcase the Mayan "long count" calendar too.
