It’s been almost a week since the much awaited doomsday. Yes, the human race prevailed. Many of us including me, have wondered, is the Mayan prediction really true? The earth shaking Tsunami to the devastating Sandy, I have to be honest, even if it was for a random fleeting moment, I did believe, that maybe just maybe there might be some merit to all these prophecies. They did build those pyramids with no wireless communication, technology and no construction equipments, its reasonable to believe, that just maybe they knew what they were talking about.
From Nostradamus to Mayan, doomsday prophecies have intrigued and stimulated our imaginations and creativity. Isn’t it ironical, the man who strives and struggles everyday on ways to save planet earth, has an incessant appetite for “end of the world” stories.
The question I ask is, can doomsday really be predicted? I think not. You ask why, the answer is simple; for any prediction to come true, every future event, every cosmic movement, all planetary positions have to align as planned. A miniscule change in any, will have a dominoes effect on the subsequent events. So no, doomsday cannot be predicted. For every future there are countless possibilities. And thank god, we haven't found the technology to do so. If we did, it would then, truly be judgement day.
|The lone tree that weathered the storm.|
Our earth will always thrive.
On this note, I am sharing this painting, its called “The Lone Tree that weathered the storm.” A rather long name I know, but its the only thing that comes to mind when I see it. Just as with every forest fire, the seeds of pine pop open to replenish the forest floor, just as with every storm comes a beautiful rainbow, 2012, I hope will ring in a happier 2013 for all of us.
Wishing all of you a very happy holiday season. The end of the year is a very special time, it’s the time that links all beautiful yesterdays with lovely dreams of tomorrow. Make December 31st special, after all, we continue to live through... :-) !
