Are We About to Experience a Shift in Collective Consciousness?

Many believe that a shift in human consciousness was the true message of the Mayan Long Count Calendar. Graham Hancock discusses the meaning of the end of the current World Age in this clip from “2012: Science or Superstition.”

  1. < Best Evidence supporting this claim in my opinion. There is a connection between catastrophic earth change and the tempo established by the Great Year or precession of the equinoxes.

    • Looks good, thanks

      • Thanks for checking it out Ted. I will have a write up here shortly. Let me know if you have any questions please 🙂

        • Yeah, I’m looking forward to it! One question that comes to mind-Is there a book? If so I’d like to get my hands on one! That guy is awesome! Seems like a regular guy, not weird or “New Agey” at all. I remember him on a Disinfo conference or something.

          • Book is in the works. Randall is definitely down to Earth and I have always appreciated his matter of fact nature when considering higher order concepts. I just added you on Twitter, hit me back and I can get you more info.

    Shouldn’t there be a plot spoiler alert for those of us who want to wait a week?

    I hope so or pretty soon we’re fucked.

    And this is supposed to happen spontaneously?

    I’m all for a shift in collective consciousness (towards something better, that is) because the current ecology of the planet may depend on it. But connecting it to the power of Quetzalcoatl, or whatever Mayan phenomenon, just means that we’re going to sit around passively waiting for it to happen and then nothing will change.

    • It’s not going to happen spontaneously. It’s been happening, and will continue to accelerate. It’s a collective shift which requires human participation, even those who may not realize it. The majority of people probably won’t notice any substantial change on the specific date because they are expecting something major and automatic, but it’s more of a subtle shift.

  5. Like Dude, it’s called the internet and we’re like already experiencing it. The big stuff the collective force of will is like really becoming all to real. Are you guys, like, blind?
    Don’t look for fantasy and mysticism when reality is changing the world we live in, now if you still want your head to spin, was mysticism and spirituality behind the creation of the internet.

    • But DUDE, actually the psychedelic movement was pretty important to the advancement of computers, genetic science, arts, philosophy… have you ever experienced the mystical or really even know what it is? My sister is a pediatric neurologist but I don’t argue with her about the treatment of child neurology because I really don’t know anything about it. hubris does not equal intelligience.

    • “Mysticism” is not a collective term for all “spookeries” of the paranormal. The “mystical sensation” is one of self-and-universe, or organism-and-environment, as a unified field/process. Non-verbal, direct – it’s an experience, not a concept. It does not violate the intellectual conscience. It is not pointless because, when directly felt/apprehended, it transforms one’s way of living.

      So, like, make fun all you want, dood. But the idea of oneself as an island-ego in a hostile, stupid or indifferent universe is a much more dangerous hallucination.

  6. No. There will be no “collective shift of consciousness” because there is no such thing as consciousness.

    • Monkey See Monkey Do | Dec 15, 2012 at 1:10 pm |

      “collective shift of material reality” – whatever works for your obviously narrow reality tunnel.

    • If there were no such thing as consciousness, you wouldn’t be experiencing anything because you wouldn’t be conscious. What a grotesquely ignorant assertion.

    Science or superstition…… hm…. such a tough choice. Which one has given us lifesaving medical procedures, internet, air conditioning, space travel, and knowledge about the world we live in? Hm…..

    • Without a change in consciousness technology may be our undoing.

      • bobbiethejean | Dec 16, 2012 at 8:55 am |

        I absolutely agree with that. But it’s not the technology, it’s us. We will be our own undoing and we’ll do it through technology. We’re basically still cavemen in a lot of ways but we’re cavemen with extremely dangerous weapons and internet.

    • Science, in its current form, has also launched us off a fucking thermodynamic cliff at full speed with just a few parachutes (I mean peak oil, of course). The progress of science has been blinded by capitalism, so science just motors on because the funding lets it. Practitioners of science, so-called ‘scientists’, don’t mind conjuring up even more fucking evil weapons to incinerate, mutilate, eviscerate, exterminate all unwanted peoples. Science as a system of thinking has failed to maintain the courage to challenge the order of the day, speak truth to power, or even just consider the moral implications of the murderous implements they put out every fiscal quarter. Because challenging knowledge on a continuous basis, like science ought to, also implicates the scientist in continuously challenging the ways that knowledge is put to use. Without such basic moral consistency the quest for knowledge is for nothing.

      • bobbiethejean | Dec 16, 2012 at 9:09 am |

        form, has also launched us off a fucking thermodynamic Science didn’t do that, we did it to ourselves. If someone bashes someone else’s skull in with a hammer, do you say the hammer causes the man to bash the guy’s head in? No. It’s just a tool and we are horribly misusing it. The blame lies on us entirely.

        The progress of science has been blinded by capitalism I couldn’t possibly agree with this more. But again, that’s the fault of greedy, shortsighted humans, not science which is just a tool.

        Science as a system of thinking has failed That’s not science’s job to do those things. That’s why we have worldviews, politics, debate, opinions, and philosophy. Science is just a way of knowing things to a reasonable level of certainty (insofar as we can know anything with certainty).

        scientist in continuously challenging the ways that knowledge Many scientists do. Haven’t you been witnessing the marine biologists jumping up and down frantically trying to tell us that our stupidity and shortsightedness is destroying the oceans? I don’t know how apprised everyone else is of this but I’ve heard it loud and clear. I’ve also heard plenty of scientists discussing the ethics of stem cell research, genetic modifications, and transhumanism. Again, the problem here isn’t with science, it’s with human greed and stupidity.

        Without such basic moral consistency the quest for knowledge is for nothing. I heartily and wholly agree, in full, word for word.

  8. How is the idea of a shift in consciousness anti-science? Aren’t things like improving attitudes towards GLBT people due to a shift in consciouiness? More awareness of environmental concerns and things like that? Free Trade coffee?.

    The Maya, were very Scientific. I mean just in terms of architecture alone. The Calendar is not based on superstition, either. Lots of New Age writers have cashed in on speculation, regarding this, but it doesn’t take away from the fact that they had advanced knowledge about the Cosmos, much of it corroborated by modern astronomy.

    Now as far as causality between the calender and a shift in consciousness, that’s all speculation. But a shift in consciousness itself is not a superstitious idea. Its the goal of any kind of activist or anyone who wishes to improve life on Earth.

    Ironically, the shift in consciousness will include no more duality of “this or that” including science or superstition. It will be more of a cooperative nature, unification, and taking the best of all things while evolving.

  10. I think a shift of individual consciousness would be more useful, can we rewind, oh wait nothing happened…

  11. Holden 3 | Sep 3, 2014 at 1:43 am |

    So much for the shift as the collective consciousness in now polarized against it-self. Monster tsunamis many times were in my dreams and it was scary. You cannot walk away from the traditional family unit to a amorphous society as it will destroy the fabric of society and fire the engines of destruction in order to recreate. 2014.
