Do you actually believe him when he says that the Maya pyramids are actually particle accelerators?

If anyone here can show the rest of us how they have consciousness or what they were before they were born on this planet then maybe they should speak up. Otherwise accept the fact that you have no effing idea about anything in this "reality" other than what has been spoon fed to you by "established" science/media etc.

Drex - if you have a blog of any sort, I'd love to follow it. And I hate blogs, I just think yours would provide endless entertainment.

Watch the intro then go to 15:00. This is actually pretty intriguing.

Guys... I are some old yogurt I found in the back of my fridge last night, and it opened my eyes.

An extra dimensional being with a name that can't be pronounced on an iPhone revealed everything to me. A great ending is coming next month, an ending to our current level of consciousness. The planets will have a never-before seen arrangement, which will have a precise interaction of gravitational forces on the earth, which will cause all the mercury in the oceans to coalesce into an intelligent form. Its name will be Fred.

This living mercury will bring us peace and enlightenment, and safe tuna. It will carry with it the wisdom of millennia of ocean metal wisdom. This will bring about a rebirth of human consciousness.

Trust me.

Jesus tapdancing christ what do you think science is? Mass bending the fabric of space not out-there enough for you? What about an object existing in two places at once?

Copernicus' theories were heresy in his time and Galileo was put under house arrest because of his claims. Countless scientists have been ridiculed and put to death for their audacious claims, but here's where we depart from the nonsense you posted, they had the math and observations to back them up. I don't care how convincing someone is, be it a Mayan "physicist" or MIT professor, if they don't have hard data to back up their claims then they might as well be lunatics as far as the scientific community is concerned.

Hey hey hey, I know a "Fred". Even though Fred is a manager where I work, it still took years of teasing before he realized he was tucking his dress shirt into his underwear instead of into his pants. Thus, I flat out refuse to believe anything intelligent will ever happen with people named Fred!!!

I call BS. That video doesn't have enough fart jokes or drug references for traders to be interested.

Oh, for God's sake, listen to cowmoo32!

I actually did research on this subject for a screenplay... the Mayans called the counting "B'ak'tun" and, in a nutshell, the only reason it 'ends' in 2012 is because their original calendar ran out of numbers. When they developed/enahnced the Long-Count (their numbering system was bizarre, with some digits being 19-decimal while other numbers in the same sequence were base 12 (I believe... it's been a few years)) they took the calendar way the hell out beyond 2012. There's no record that the Mayans believed anything other than a new B'ak'tun (#14) begins on 12/21/2012, which is like saying a new millenium begins... big deal (other than it calls for a big party).

We have those people here, too. They're called deadbeats. And yes, it's easy to be happy when you're a deadbeat. I wouldn't call it living at a higher consciousness level, though.
