The Mayan Long Count calendar which ends on December 21, 2012 has generated a world-wide phenomenon that is gathering a huge groundswell of attention with a full spectrum of speculation and predictions ranging end-of-the-world dire warnings and cataclysmic events to changes in consciousness levels and absolutely nothing happening.

In on the debate are scientists, representatives of religious orders, astrologers, soothsayers, historians, archaeologists, quantum physicists and remnants of placard holders who have recycled themselves from the last end-of-the-world fiasco.
In some ways it is hard to understand why the 5 125 year Mayan calendar has caused such uproar. The Mayans themselves seemed to have vanished long before the end of their calendar and nowhere in anything they left behind is there a hint that the end of the calendar equates to the demise of the world.
However, alongside the predictions of a switch in magnetic poles, a collision with a huge asteroid or being crisped by the sun due to the alignment of the planets that only occurs every 100-million years or so, there is a growing body of scientists from quantum physicists across the professional spectrum that believe there are additional influences... hidden forces coming into play.
Recently James Wells who has been working with the Hadron Collider at Cern said there could be a ‘hidden world’ with particles and forces working all around us. Glimpses of this world include quarks which confound conventional thinking.
The Mayan Long Count Calendar
The 2012 phenomenon comprises a range of eschatological beliefs that cataclysmic or transformative events will occur on December 21, 2012, which is said to be the end-date of a 5,125-year-long cycle in the Mayan Long Count calendar.
Solar experts from around the world monitoring the sun have made a startling discovery:
Our sun is in a bit of strife. The energy output of the sun is, like most things in nature, cyclic, and it's supposed to be in the middle of a period of relative stability. However, recent solar storms have been bombarding the Earth with so much radiation energy; it's been knocking out power grids and destroying satellites. This activity is predicted to get worse, and calculations suggest it'll reach its deadly peak sometime in 2012.
