Ragnarok begins, 22nd Feb 2014

Ragnarök by Doepler

The Norse pantheon’s Ragnarok begins on 22nd Feb 2014 and once more hilarity prevails in the UK’s popular press as another apocalyptic flag lands in our time period[1] but the world doesn’t come to an end. Like the Mayan prediction of an apocalypse in 2012 the source of the humour requires ignorance of the word’s meaning, revelation. Perhaps coincidentally numerous incredible facts about the establishment are currently being revealed routinely, thanks to the technology of our age. Either way the resulting irony is that, as apocalypse after apocalypse comes through our internet connections[2], some continue to chuckle at the absurd idea our world will end forever[3].

The concept of such an ending is relatively new[4]. When it came to the motion of time the evidence is most belief systems from our distant past understood our reality to be locked into a cyclical, spiral-like movement. Like the seasons, periods of time would come, go, and then return.

The Boy Who Cried Wolf: 2012, Fenrir and Asteroid DA 14

We all remember the well known fable told by the ancient Greek slave and storyteller, Aesop, about the shepherd boy drafted to keep watch over a flock of sheep, and who, out of boredom, decided it would be great fun to fool the nearby villagers by pretending that a wolf was attacking the sheep. After the villagers rushed out to save the sheep a number of times based upon the boys fabrications they refused to believe him when the wolf actually did show up and began to consume the sheep. The obvious declared moral of the story is generally expressed as “There is no believing a liar, even when he is telling the truth.” However, there is, I submit, a second, unstated moral to the story as well. In spite of the shepherd boys prevarications the wolf was real. And the wolf did, in the end, show up to devour the poor sheep.
