The Maya, Hindu, Hopi, Summarians and the ancient Greeks all have similar beliefs–that there are 4 or 5 stages of the world and that we are either in the 4th or the 5th. The Sikhs think that we will go from the 4th to the 5th world on (or around) December 21st, 2012–though some place the phase change in 2013. There is no “apocalypse” in the rigid Judeo-Christian sense of the word, just minor changes in physics, maybe some exhaling of the sun (though Nasa contradicts this claim) and maybe some sort of subtle shifts in hard to quantify “consciousness.” The mythology goes that if we are in the 4th then what comes is the final stage, aka the Khalsa Raj; the age of enlightenment. Changing from one phase of the world to the next will come with some growing pains but it seems to ultimately be for the better.

World Ending – Photographs of the Universe Say Otherwise

A subtle aspect of all this doomsday hearsay is that the Hopi native Americans said that when the world was about to change, it would be connected by a great “web”, perhaps inferencing the world wide web. Though they both claim to be privy to ancient knowledge the Sikhs don’t seem to be aware of the Maya culture at all. Sikhism is about transcending the imaginary veil of illusion or as they called it “maya”, through meditation. NASA Universe Photos show that a beautiful and destructive universe is the norm, rather the contrary to what doomsday mythology of apocalypse-freaks say. Don’t be a literalist and read between the lines. Turn off your television and go outside.
