That we think that we humans are the center of the universe is understandable. We have huge egos.
It was only a few hundred years ago that understood that the universe didn’t evolve around us: the earth. The geocentric theory though finally gave way to the heliocentric reality; however, man and mankind still “thinks” that we’re the cat’s MEOW and the center of all things. We’re missing the BIG pictures!
We see small cycles but miss the BIGGER cycles of life.
Hours, days, weeks, months are easy to measure. The female twenty eight day cycle, the nine month gestation cycle, and the eleven year sun cycle we measure and rely upon. But there are many large cycles. This year 2012 has received a lot of attention due to the Mayan calendar cycle and the gifted Serbian geophysicist and astronomer Milutin Milankovi? awakened us to some of the longer cycles such as:
>26,000 year axial precession cycle
>41,000 year obliquity cycle
>413,000 year eccentricity cycle.
Google it for yourself. I’ve got ONE BIGGER fish (cycle) to fry!
The 26,000 cycle that the Mayan calendar is built around (in five 5,200 year cycles) ends December 21, 2012. Actually, the number is 25,920 (Plato’s perfect number). What’s important here in this cycle is the INDIVIDUATED transition. In human and psychological terms, 26,000 years ago we moved from being UNCONSCIOUSLY united with the Creator to divided and consciously separate.
A BAD move!
But we also have the GALACTIC CYCLE! This is a 225 MILLION year cycle. No wonder we are clueless about it. It takes the Milky Way galaxy 225 million years to make a complete rotation in the sky. My hat is off to those that can measure these things. In like fashion, 225 million years ago RANGAEA existed.
There was just ONE land mass. The land was UNITED. But, 225 million years ago, the land mass started shifting, breaking up, and eventually giving us the seven INDIVIDUATED continents that we have today. Is your mind spinning out of control now? You see there is a much BIGGER PICTURE at work in our lives than our puny EGOS can comprehend.
