It reminds me of the build up to Y2K, which scared me a lot more because of so many articles about how nuclear power plants might melt down or nuclear rockets somehow might be tricked into being launched. Here I am below flashing a peace sign with a bunch of peaceniks in front of the White House December 31, 1999. We were ticking off with the red ribbon in what longitude the year 2000 has just struck. Luckily, there were no catastrophes that year.
And despite the scare we had last week with TWO asteroids in two days coming really close - the closest one totally unexpected! - I assume we'll be lucky again this time around. Of course, between supervolcanos and asteroids and the occasional massive solar flare, nature will doom humanity, assuming it doesn't doom itself first. But don't worry, life will always return here or elsewhere.
Consciousness, the mind of the universe, cannot help but evolve again and again into intelligent life forms, some surely far more intelligent than testosterone and masculinity besotted humanity. So Merry Solstice, which should be the beginning of our happy new year! (Enjoy my last year's Merry Solstice video - and my "Here comes the Sun video".)
12/27/12 News Flash! We survived - for now anyway. I did have fun watching the movie "2012" for the 5th or 6th time anyway on the 21st. Well, we'll see if someone somewhere did or said or thought or wrote or decided to write or say or do something that really will raise human consciousness and give us a few thousand years of bliss on the planet before some inevitable cosmic calamity befalls us!
