Ok, yesterday I was thinking about this thing of December 21st, the Photon Belt, Mayan prophecy and fact that it’s going to be the end of the world as we know it. And it’s not Ronald Reagan’s fault.
Seriously: do you know about the Photon Belt? I’m a child of the 80’s, I grew up singing super robots cartoons theme songs, Mazinger Z was my hero and I used to play with other kids pretending we could shoot Rocket Punches and Photon Beams. But I never heard about the Photon Belt. My fault.
Today I googled it and I had a hard time deciding which result to pick first for how many results my search returned. However, this summarizes more or less what I learnt:
“The photon belt is reportedly a band of intense photon (light) energy that is on a collision course with Earth. When it gets here, things are predicted to change dramatically. There are reports of five days of darkness (although this could be metaphorical; mankind in his darkest hour), no more electricity, mass UFO landings, photon energy conversion devices, psychic abilities for all humans, transformation of our human bodies into higher dimensions, and much more. The photon belt was first predicted to arrive by the end of 1996”.
Well, that’s good news! 1996 was 16 years ago and we’re still here, the world is still the same! Right? Uhmmm… Let me think… I can’t remember any dramatic change, any total blackout, no mass UFO landings, no transformation into higher dimensions… But wait, in 1996 Take That broke up… Not the right kind of transformation? Ok ok, that’s fine. Then I can say nothing strange or incredibly amazing or surprising happened in 1996. So it’s clear the Photon Belt didn’t affect us that time.
However, predictions say the Photon Belt will sort its effects on December 21st this year. This means in a couple of weeks everything will change for good. And now that the end is near, can you picture what will be? Actually I have no idea, but what I know for sure is that someone should tell people to stop believing in miracles and superstitions! Think about this: my mom told me her caregiver lady, who’s from Ukraine, is planning to go back to her Country to be with her family on the last day of our life. She said all of her friends are doing the same, many of them are so scared they already bought their ticket back to Ukraine. She and other ladies learnt about the Photon Belt and the incoming end of the world from television: “They said that on tv, so it’s true!”. OMG.
Ok, someone should tell people to stop believing in miracles, superstitions AND television.
