The end of the world



“End of the world” is a topic that is in vogue. People speak of 2012 like the last year of humanity. There are many theories about might happens the legendary December 21 of 2012.

For example, there are incredulous people who think that all things will remain the same.

There are others who believe in a catastrophic end of the world. But there are persons like me, who believe in an end of a “way” of world. I think what will happen in late 2012 is related with a change of consciousness of people and the creating of a new society.

There is much uncertainly about this issue, even some countries have created strategies to survive a supposed catastrophe. For example, the Norwegian government built a large bunker to protect seed`s species if the world ends (http://www.lapatilla.com/site/2012/01/07/crean-bunker-para-sobrevivier-al-fin-del-mundo/). I think maybe this is an exaggeration.

Great ancient civilizations predicted the end of the world by 2012. And the best known case is Maya civilization. They made an exactly calendar which end of December 21 of this year. This cultural group predicted others certain things, but in my opinion, this is not the same way of prediction.

I think that we don`t think so literally. I believe that the “end of the world” is actually the end of an era. Is going to end the era of selfishness, consumer thinking and the excessive exploitation of environment. If this doesn´t happen, I think we ourselves can do that the world will explode. Maybe ancient civilization gave us a sort of ultimatums.

Anyway, if the world ended I would like to do many things this year. I would love to enjoy the most of everything I will do.

On one hand, I would like to stop have responsibilities, and so I can travel, dancing a lot, spending time with people I want to be. It`s so idealist and crazy, but if I have one year of life, I would like to do everything that before I dared not.

Really, I think that every year we should live as they were the last year of our life
