For the first time in many years, I am not carving a pumpkin. I am decorating, though. Happy Halloween, everyone! ~Vic
Shutterbug Saturday: Beach Shots
We are fifteen days out from the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year. It’s already cold and dark before the six o’clock news comes on. For some warmth, here are some shots from a beach trip I took back in 2011. ~Vic

Chris Thomas: 21st of December 2012
A Blog Post From: The Chris Thomas Files
First of all, I have to say that I am not an expert on the Mayan Calendar. I am aware of the “epochs” and “rounds” of the Calendar but, not the workings of the “tuns” and “bactuns” that make the Calendar work. Having said that, the only date within the Mayan Calendar that seems to have captured everyone’s imagination, and concern, is that of the 21st of December 2012 (21/12/12 or 12/21/12 depending on which country you live in).
The Mayan Calendar is not the only ancient calendar that exists on the planet. The ancient Egyptians had their own calendar form but, this is largely lost to us as academics and “pyramidiots”, sorry Egyptologists, have kept it from non-specialist eyes. However, the Egyptian Calendar also notes a major shift in our existence towards the end of 2012. The Chinese also have their own calendar system going back at least 5,000 years. Their calendar is known in the west but, has been reduced to a fortune-telling tool – the I Ching. The I Ching also foretells of major changes at the end of 2012. There are a number of other ancient calendar systems from around the world but, most have been lost or have been deliberately destroyed to hide their contents away from the westernised world.
As far as the Akashic is concerned, the most important date occurred at the end of 2011. This was the completion of The Human Plan, which has been in operation for 7,000 years.
Our solar system is unique in that it is the only place within our Universe where life exists at a level of energy compaction we call “physical”. In all other parts of our Universe, life exists at energy levels that are considered “non-physical” or “semi-physical”. I am not going to describe those states of being here as they are fully covered by my books and previous essays. Virtually all of the souls that exist in human form have originated from the non-physical or semi-physical regions of our Universe. In other words, their “soul origins” are not of this solar system but, have chosen to come to Earth to experience what it is to be physical.
There are souls whose soul origin is Earth but, they are outside of the scope of this essay.
Originally, every planet in our solar system supported physical life as well as a version of the life-forms we call human. 3.6 million years ago, this situation changed and the only planet within our solar system that continued to support life since then has been our Earth.
Life has continued on one of Jupiter’s moons but, that is outside of the scope of this essay.
The primary purpose of our solar system is to explore the possibility of developing and sustaining a form of life that is capable of containing the whole of a soul within it. On Earth, this life-form we know [is] Human Beings. Please note the capitol [sic] letters. Again, I am not going into the complexities of Human existence in this essay as that history is detailed in my books and previous essays.
The full state of being Human we achieved on Atlantis but, for various reasons, we destroyed that continent 65,000 years ago. Following the destruction, we returned to Earth 25,000 years ago and started again. At that time we were also a full Human, the whole of the soul within the physical body but, we began to lose our “higher” faculties. […] so, we developed a strategy for how we could explore the possibilities and potential that Earth presented and, also to find a way to achieve full Human status again. Essentially, the loss of our higher faculties amounted to a loss of some elements of the soul from the body. The strategy we developed was designed to help us find a way of re-merging the whole of the soul back into the physical.
This strategy we named “The Human Plan” and we began working with it 7,000 years ago.
The Human Plan
The definition of a Human Being is a “physical” being that contains the whole of the soul. By the time we put The Human Plan into operation, our souls were divided into two: the “physical self” and the “higher self”. This divided soul state meant that the Earth considered us to be “sub-human”. That is human with a small “h”. The Human Plan was very simple:
We would live a series of lifetimes experiencing all that there is to experience by being in a physical body living on a physical planet and, collectively, we would pool our gained knowledge until we found a way of returning the whole of the soul back into the body…become Human again. In order to achieve this, the Earth’s consciousness gave us a time limit of 7,000 years. That 7,000 year period finished on the 29th of October 2011.
At the same time as we set The Human Plan into action, all of the ancient calendar systems were begun. Given that most of these ancient calendars have been lost to us, in one way or another, the only one that remains is the Mayan Calendar.
The Mayan Calendar
The Mayan Calendar was actually begun 7,000 years ago but, it spans a time-frame of roughly 26,000 years. The basis of Mayan traditions is connected with the phases of development that our solar system underwent. Each stage required differing energy potentials and these potentials were supplied by our sun. Therefore, the Mayan Calendar records sun cycles and, according to Mayan traditions, we are approaching the end of the “5th Sun”. This means that we are leaving the current phase of energy requirements, supplied by our sun and, are about to enter into a new phase of development which requires a different combination of energy frequencies…a “6th Sun”.
In comparison with The Human Plan, the Mayan Calendar appears to be out of sync. The Human Plan came to its completion at the end of 2011 (according to the Akashic), whilst the Calendar comes to its completion on the 21st of December 2012. To understand this, we need to look at the Calendar as a whole. Again, I must state that I am no expert on the intricacies of the Calendar with only a basic understanding of its cycles. I am sure that there are many people reading this essay who have greater knowledge of the full workings of the Calendar, so, I apologise in advance if I have some of the detail wrong. My intention is to show some of the basic workings and put it into context within The Human Plan in relation to the 21st December.
We are used to using calendars in our daily lives as a means of counting off the days from the start of the year or of counting the days until an event is due to occur. The Mayan Calendar is different. It does count off the number of days but, it also contains predictive elements, in that it predicts cycles and major events known as “Epochs”. When the Calendar is worked backwards, it can be used to go backwards for many thousands, if not millions, of years and it has been shown to predict some events, in that those events occur at the end of the cycles built into the Calendar. These ends of cycles, or the markers of major events, are even more pronounced when the cycle marks the end of an Epoch.
