First, allow me to share to you the passage from the Bible:
"... for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord."--Ephesians 5:7-10
The purpose of this post is to share you, the reader, the results of my own research and personal view of the 2012 phenomenon.
If my memory recalls I was between 5 to 6 years old when one evening my dad and his bowling buddy came home and had a cup of coffee in our fast-food restaurant to end their fun night. While they were having their cup of coffee at the table sit in the southeast corner in the restaurant and talking about their bowling-game winnings, my younger brother and I were around near them playing with toy rubber-bands and marbles. Simultaneously, my dad and his buddy stood up, for my dad’s friend was leaving for the night. As they walked toward the front door facing east, I heard my dad saying in a question, pointing his finger to the light bulb on the ceiling, “Do you see the light?” I look at the light bulb, as the question started to keep repeating in the back of my head. And dad followed up with another question, “Why do you think there is light?” ... And then I heard him said about “computer.”
This small discovery was forgotten or buried in my subconscious (or shall I say, stored in my own storage space somewhere in the unknown—this will be explained here later) for years until, for some reason, I had to take a “Computer Hardware and Software Systems” education. It is a very long story to tell and private matter, so I just say “destiny” led me to it—for a very good reason—“this Post.”
“And in the last days it shall be, God declares, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh, and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. ” – Acts 2:17
The above passages are among the words that gave birth to this (my) blogspot. We know that “everything has beginning and end.” It is a Law of Cycle (balance)—“What goes up must come down.”
The earth may not be perfectly round and spherical but there's a very good reason for its shape; otherwise, life on earth would have not existed and evolved; and the four seasons would have not been situated—“How beautiful to think that every season there’s kind of life adapting and enjoying it; and there’s a kind of life that dies when the season changes?” But only human life has a chance to enjoy the beauty of this planet longer than the rest of living creatures that move, creep, crawl, and walk on earth, which God called “paradise” all-year-round (and to see the world—this is possible to all, if we live in accordance to the “Divine Law”), and yet mankind is still unsatisfied of this gift. “Why?”
Thousands and thousands, if not millions and millions, of years have had passed since the first man walked on this planet, and yet mankind is still caught between the Creation and Evolution; or “Who prevails—science or philosophy?”
“Why is it that after all these eons of time I have yet to see a single jellyfish transformed into another form of life, or a reptile turned into a bird?” Etc. If we had to consider that evolution process is controlled/determined by the development of the brain, and brain’s development stops at a certain degree, as the body being completely formed according to the assumed shape—a new specie; and from each completed specie forms another kind of specie, and so forth, until the highest form of specie—man—is achieved—the last (perfect) specie that was ever formed, feared by all living species that move and creep on earth; “Who then was responsible for determining as to what level of the brain, who (I believe) also controls the development of its body as it matures, to stop growing, as it perfectly matches to the shape or form of its living body or thing, and to where this living body or thing had to live, and to which season it suited most?” SOMEBODY had to design it! Do you think?
Something must start from something. But before it starts, somebody had to design it. But before designing, a “THOUGHT” must be given...
Well, first thing first—everything has origin. And best way to begin is to start with a question.
Writing on an invisible subject—a thought—is a real challenge. You could sweat bullets, even just thinking about it. Finding the right word to begin is already like traffic congestion in the mind. And help is hard to find because the subject itself doesn't exist, except in our consciousness. We automatically accept that “Life” exists because we live. But even we accepted it, for most of us, despite all the knowledge and wisdom we acquired since the beginning of Man’s existence; the question of “Why life exists?” remains a very fascinating subject to all.
… And that's exactly what I did.
“… I woke up one morning with a fresh recollection that I was in a square (like a large cube) room. Inside the room, a man was laying on bed with a clear mug and a can of soda (coca-cola) near him (this is strange, because one of the oldest TV commercials of Coca-Cola was "It's the real thing." Does it mean that my dream represents the real thing?). I went out through the door, I saw a middle-aged woman (looks like a domestic servant, wearing a white apron) ironing. As I turned around, I saw the same man, in another room—same dimension as the first’s—holding a clear mug—same size as the first man’s. I thought these men were twins; and the woman was the mother, but where is the father? As I continued to wander inside the building, I saw more and more of the same men; each in his own separate room—same body size, room dimension, and mug. … Then, I realized they live in the same building, very large, with only one domestic helper…”
The preceding quoted paragraph was a dream. A vision that I believe was an answer to the question that was (unconsciously) incubated deep into my subconscious. It is a simple analogy of how life was thought, living in its own domain (universe). A “Life” that came from one Man, funneled back up (like a mustard tree) through the Son of Man to shower the Son’s brothers and sisters; … taken cared by one Helper. “I am the true vine, and my father is the vinedresser.”—John 15:1.
IT wanders around the open and empty space in the universe. IT realized It had been roaming around for a very, very long time; and had not seen a single thing, and becoming lonely, worried, exhausted, and fell asleep (hibernating).
[Also, if you were an IT person, the communication situation above could occur in a computer network environment—trust me.]
Internet or the World Wide Web (WWW) came to exist because of a thought. Someone thought that it might be able to share or exchange information from two separate domains, outside from their own respective domain. At least two domains must exist somewhere remotely located from each other to communicate or share information. One network (domain) of computers does not establish Internet. Internet is a pool or cloud of information or knowledge trying to find way to reach its destination from any device that has name (IP Address) located somewhere around the world, from satellites or orbiters outside our planet, or perhaps from UFOs, that may jam the Internet traffic. All this information has its source.
With all this data crisscrossing the Internet, may be an invisible entity; an individual; a group of people; or groups of people, saving or recording this Internet traffic, including our thoughts, into their respective (large) data bank. The moment you digitized your thoughts and published it (publicly), anyone could capture it. One of these entities could be out there, somewhere in the universe, or in our planet, but operating like a ghost.
Have you heard of “Akashic Records?” (Akashic, a term used in theosophy to describe a compendium of mystical knowledge encoded in a non-physical plane of existence. These records are described as containing all knowledge of human experience and the history of the cosmos. Edgar Cayce also believed that there’s a storage like Akashic records; but he called it “The Hall of Records.” Whether I believe Akashic records exist [somewhere], is another subject to consider; but perhaps, by the time you finished reading this post, you would know my thoughts on this matter.)
This information floating around us is controlled or dependent on the health of Mother Nature. And when she is sick, all this knowledge would be distorted and in limbo, or going nowhere. Also, when the sun stops releasing magnetic fields and solar winds, which form a gigantic expanse called Heliosphere, particles would be able to penetrate into our solar system/galaxy and through our earth’s atmosphere that could create havoc in our earth’s environment and disturbs the Internet traffic.
“Who then controls the activities in our universe?” Would you consider that there might be “Super Invisible IT” that manages the universe? May be we shall give this question a thought—a “THOUGHT” for CREATION!
“…for at one time you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light…”—Ephesians 5:8.
The voices were from the “Slaves” (Souls) in the dark. They clamor for freedom, and existence. God, being alone, found a perfect reason to manifest HIS great WISDOM. And from a thought things had slowly emerged and became reality, including the Creation of Man.
God, with His infinite power, knows everything, even Man’s nature. But even this real fact, God created Man in his image and likeness, so God, Himself, could see and feel this freedom. God has had shared His life to “slaves” or “souls” (us)—souls that have had been kept forever as the darkness. We are God’s children, as He mentioned it. And He had chosen a Son, Jesus Christ, as mediator between Him and Men.
These “slaves” or “souls” are like “super-string” in theoretical physics. Like super-string, we were all in darkness (with our respective serial number), waiting to be called to represent a human flesh. Our parents had thoughts to love each other and expressed their love through the beauty of the flesh, which during their respective slave life they couldn't express. And since God is Love, with our expression of love comes the gift of life. And for our survival, God gave us the gift of knowledge at the right time—this may be within two to two-and-a-half years from the time of our birth.
God wanted to see and feel the beauty of His creations, but this was impossible for Him. (This requires wisdom.) And so He sacrificed Himself, so "We Live."
Inspired by the Holy Spirit, the “Holy Scriptures” came to exist. The Spirit of God, through the elect, told the story of creation that begins:
Hold it! Let me rewrite the passage above, like I’m counting the words: In-1 the-2 beginning-3 God-4 created-5 the-6 heavens-7 and-8 the-9 earth-10. It sounds very interesting! We’ll get to that later.
And then, also, in the Bible, it says:
Allow me to write the passage above again, like I’m counting the words: I-1 Am-2 the-3 Alpha-4 and-5 the-6 Omega-7. Fascinating!
In decimal number system there are only 9 real number symbols, namely: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9. I didn't include 0 as number in the series, because it is void or nothing; like a joker in a deck of cards that can be used as substitute or paired to any card in a certain card game. Zero (0) becomes a real number when married or placed directly to the right of any number symbol. And for the this subject, zero (0) is considered a gift—a gift of darkness where light sits on or married to, forever; one cannot exist without the other—1 is light, and 0 is darkness—“the Light of Creation, and the Spirit of Creation”—“the Beginning and End”—“the Alpha and the Omega”—“the Amen and the Omen.”
When you add each individual numbers, 1 through 9, to 9, such as: (1) 1+9=10, 1+0=1; (2) 2+9=11, 1+1=2; (3) 3+9=12, 1+2=3 … (9) 9+9=18, 1+8=9 you still end up with numbers 1 through 9; this means, there are 9 counts to complete a full cycle.
To simply say, there’s nine steps or levels or cycles to complete a full cycle. And this means that even the number system has a cycle—a beginning and end.
I counted the number of words included in Genesis 1:1 to show that the first sentence in the Bible already told us that there’s an end. If you noticed the word “EARTH” is in the tenth (10th) position or at the end of the sentence, which happened to have 10 words, exactly.
Also, I counted the number of words included in the first sentence in the book of Revelation 1:8—there’s exactly 7 words in the sentence—“I AM the ALPHA and the OMEGA,” says the Lord God, “… ...” (If you were observant, you would also notice that this verse is placed on the 8th position, which I will elaborate later.)
Let’s study the numbers assigned to corresponding words in those two verses:
In Catholic religion, the churches preach the Holy Trinity: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Ghost bound in one Divine Being we call GOD. Holy Trinity, the Three (3) as One (1), or Three (3) plus One equals Four (4), the GOD. Do you notice where the word "GOD" is placed in the first sentence—Genesis 1:1?— The word GOD is placed right after the word BEGINNING and in the 4th position (from the left, of course), again God’s number.
Four (4) also represents the 4 corners of the earth: East, West, North, and South. Also, there are 4 elements of nature: Earth, Fire, Water, and Air. God had 12 Disciples, plus Him (1) is 13—God number again, that is 4—1 + 3.
In Astrology, there are 12 Zodiac Signs, plus 1, that is Ophiuchus—the Healer (like the Messiah)—the 13th Zodiac sign; it’s 4 again—1+3=4. The value of Pi = 3.14… (Infinite, like God is infinite) and this is not coincidence that value of Pi is 3.14 or shall I say, 3+1=4—God’s value again. Also, these 13 and 4 will surprise you later, when we get to the Maya Long Count Calendar system.
Number five (5) in numerology, means, “Freedom and Discipline.” Because of “Freedom,” the “Soul,” from invisible became visible, manifested in a “flesh,” a man’s body, with five points—head, right and left arms, and right and left legs—a “Vitruvian Man” painted by Leonardo da Vinci. God gave us freedom as He, Himself, is free. People around the world clamor for complete “FREEDOM”—“free from dominion, or free from control.” But unfortunately, “FREE” is not really free. Freedom has an enormous responsibility and huge price to pay. What about “Discipline?” Discipline is a system of principles; principles that are embedded into our selves as Law; and Law is to Judge; and man in himself has judges—our five (5) basic senses—and another judge—the Wisdom to know the difference. As judges, we also judge ourselves. (This requires wisdom.) In Genesis 1:1, the word “CREATED” is placed in the 5th position. And so “Man” was created because of Freedom; and freedom requires discipline—“self-discipline.” [We have failed to practice this discipline, and yet we could not figure out why we have had so much trouble finding a perfect world to enjoy this freedom God had given us.]
The word “HEAVENS” in Genesis 1:1 is in 7th position and has seven (7) letters—heavens with the “s”—plural, "Why?" The “HEAVENS” this verse was referring to are the seven (7) continents on earth, namely: Asia, Africa, (North) America, (South) America, Antarctica, Australia, and Europe.
In the Bible, seven (7) is mentioned many times; but just to name one instance, the Creation period is six (6) days, and God rested on the seventh (7th) day. God, having rested in the seventh day means, “to lay out His energy to give Life; otherwise, no Life would exist.” (This requires wisdom.)
Before I leave the philosophical aspects of the beginning and end of “Creation,” allow me to ask you few questions:
“And from the rock I cut off a great fire, and from the fire I created the orders of the incorporeal ten troops of angels, and their weapons are fiery and their raiment a burning flame, and I commanded that each one should stand in his order.
“And one from out the order of angels, having turned away with the order that was under him, conceived an impossible thought, to place his throne higher than the clouds above the earth, that he might become equal in rank to my power.
“And I threw him out from the height with his angels, and he was flying in the air continuously above the bottomless.”
Honestly, I never paid attention to this 2012 until it became the talk of the town. I think it got people’s attention because of the movie “2012.” Well, I saw the movie, if you asked me. The graphics were very impressive. I saw it with group of friends; but the weird thing I noticed is, no one talked about the movie after we saw it, as if everyone had some serious thing going in their minds. As far as my memory recalls watching movies with my friends is that, "we normally discuss or talk about it," a kind of appetizer while enjoying a glass of wine or a bottle of beer; but this one, "Not a thing!" I think everyone was afraid, at least in my group, to show naivety. Oh, well!
2012 was one of the very reasons why this post is here—I was asked by a godsend friend about my thought of this 2012 phenomenon. I was dumbfounded, as I had no words to response, because I am one of those people who don’t normally pass opinion on any subject that has weight or catches attention. On the one hand, I was embarrassed by this situation; on the other, my mind was not at ease. I tried to divert the subject, while showing gesture, suggesting of getting back to the matter later.
Quite frankly, giving opinion about 2012 is as difficult as finding the proof of “Creation.” “Creation and 2012” are on the same side of the equation, and on the other side is “destruction.” But this is the heart of the matter. It’s the “Law of Cycle.”
Thank God for the Internet, my research on 2012 resulted in numbers of references that I think it would be ridiculously impossible to write everything here. But for the purpose of this blog, I will site two sources: “The passages from the Bible;” and “The Mayan Long Count” calendar system.
In the Bible, from the Book of Revelation, chapter 7, verse 4:
“… And I heard the number of the sealed, 144,000, sealed from every tribe of the sons of Israel…”
I use this verse only for the number 144,000 to compare with the Mayan Long Count calendar system. But if you are interested in this matter, please read Revelation 13, and relate this to what the Internet has given us today. The Internet has showed us many strange things. And "yes," it has made our life easier, and that, many people don’t even need to go out to do stuff—people are hooked into their computers; it also has changed our way of life; it has revolutionized the film industry and billboard advertising, just to name a few. But think harder and relate the effects of the computers, the then, the Internet to the passages in Revelation 13.
You can begin to think of any “Beast” you like, but the “Sea, Ocean, or Water” symbolizes “Knowledge” or “Money”—the Internet—is the first Beast. And the “Earth” is the computer chips (Silicon Valley—and now chips are made in Israel) and the computer hardware systems—like I mentioned above, people are hooked to their computers, like praying. And “How about the “Dragon?” The Dragon, relate it as fire to the Beasts—the Energy. Now, if you put them together, “Does energy powering the computer to run the program codes (information) or the Internet (information) mean anything to you? This is just a fraction of what I have thought coded into the Bible.
To site you some examples; please click the following words at a time: COMPUTER, WWW, INTERNET, and ENERGY, and then refer to my analyses of the conversion from Gematria Website below:
COMPUTER = 6 (5+2+8=15=1+5=6); 666; and 111. And these 3 conversions from Gematria narrow down to 6, 666, and 111; or 6, 9, 3—see this in Mark 15:25-34—third, sixth, and ninth hour.
WWW = 9 (2+7+0+0=9); 9 (4+1+4=9); 69 or 6 (6+9=15=1+5=6). Now the layman straight conversion are the following: WWW = 999, 333, and 555. The 555 were originally based on the 23+23+23. Some people believe that number 2 represents a Man, and number 3 is God. Man before God is Evil, that is, 2/3 is .666, and thus, 23+23+23 become 666. And these 3 conversions from Gematria narrow down to 9, 9, and 6—996.
INTERNET = 10 [or 1, beginning; and 0, end] (3+7+9=19=1+9=10); 9 (6+3+0=9); 6 (1+0+5=6).
ENERGY = 6 (5+3+7=15=1+5=6); 444 (this number already symbolizes triple death); 11 (7+4=11—double energy, or double creativity—or SIN).
The Mayans have three different calendar systems: the Tzolkin (with 260 days); Haab (with 365-day); and Long Count. The Haab calendar system is the extension of the Tzolkin to get the approximate number of days in one solar cycle. But Haab, having 365-day, was still inaccurate particularly for keeping track of the seasons, because it ignored approximately quarter of a day in an actual tropical year. After few centuries, the Mayans realized that the calendar months named (assigned) for the seasons no longer correspond to these seasons, or follow the patterns, until 52-year cycle is completed—Mayans called this 52-year “Calendar Round”—and thus, the Long Count was introduced. Also, Mayans believed that at the end of Calendar Round, a period of unrest and bad luck would occur to their people, pending “the gods” would grant them another cycle of 52 years.
Mayan people were not satisfied with what they were noticing, particularly on the dating of the events, as their lives were so dependent on the nature’s wealth, and the blessings from their gods; a more complex calendar system was introduced for the historical records to be dated accurately for future reference. The Mayans had introduced the Long Count calendar system based on 18,980 days, which is approximately equivalent to 52 solar years. For this segment of this post, I’ll use the Long Count system since the Maya researchers use it, because of the correlation with the Western calendars. [Please note that based on the two calendar converters I used off the Internet (click my reference: first converter and second converter), I realized that there is a discrepancy on these calendar systems.] (See Mayan Long Count, Gregorian and Julian Calendars Table: 144,000-Day Cycle below.) The Mayan had allocated their Long Count system to 1,872,000 days or 5,125.26 solar years, which we really don’t know the exact reason why it was set 1,872,000 days, except that 1,872,000 days divide by 13 is exactly 144,000 days; and for the common Mayan belief that every time the allocated days run out, cataclysmic events would occur.
This total number of days was set in Long Count calendar to 00 Baktuns, 00 Katuns, 00 Tuns, 00 Uinals, 00 Kins. Or equivalent to August 11, 3114 BC in both Western calendars—Proleptic Gregorian and Julian calendars—as referred by Maya Culture researchers. But if you were more serious to know this matter, you would use a calendar converter to validate my facts; and when you do, you would notice that there’s a huge date discrepancy; and neither Gregorian nor Julian calendar begins in August 11, 3114 BC. But this date discrepancy, between the Gregorian and Julian calendars, was corrected, at least the “year date,” after the BC period. (See Mayan Long Count, Gregorian and Julian Calendars Table: 144,000-Day Cycle below.) Regardless of this calendar date disagreement, my point in presenting the Mayan Long Count calendar system is only to support one of the key numbers used in the Book of Revelation to suggest the “End-Time.”
The number 144,000 mentioned in Revelation 7:4 sounds like the number of days to me. Here’s why? In the Mayan Long Count calendar system, 144,000 days is equivalent to 1 Baktun or 394.3 solar years. (See Table of Long Count units below.)
Table of Long Count Units
We already know why the Mayans adapted the Long Count calendar system, but “Why set it to 1,872,000 days?”
But the Maya, on the other hand, having created a sophisticated calendar system to accurately track the historical events, is another ancient culture, far from Egypt and Palestine, that I believe could strongly support the parables and wisdom given in the Bible about the “coming of age,” or the end of the “great solar cycle.”
In the Book of Leviticus 25:8-22, God said:
“You shall count seven weeks of years, seven times seven years, so that the time of the seven weeks of years shall give you forty-nine years. … I will command my blessing on you in the sixth year, so that it will produce a crop sufficient for three years. …”
This was about “jubilee.” A cycle. God was referring to a 49-year cycle, plus 3-year of God’s time, like replenishment, equal to 52-year. “Does this sound familiar to you?” The Maya has realized about the pattern, that there’s 52 years before the seasons are back to their original calendar months’ named. “Is this a coincident? Or, “Did God take care of the Mayan people as well?” And, “How about the blueprint or the Hopi Prophecy Rock?”
Mayans set their Long Count to 00 Baktun … 00 Kin to begin from 1,872,000 days and continue counting by deducting 1 for each passing day. And this count would end in 13 Baktun … 00 Kin. Do you notice the number 13?
In my number symbol, number 13 (one in three, or three in one) symbolizes the Holy Trinity, or the living God.
Let’s play with the Mayan Long Count system. 13 Baktun … 00 Kin is equivalent to December 21, 2012. Let’s add 4 days to arrive the birthday of Christ, that is, December 25—the Mayan Long Count then would read 13 Baktun … 04 Kin. Do you notice the numbers? Does it look like 13.4, or 1+3=4—4 is Death (or Rebirth).
