The Beginning of the Mayan End?

What happened last night? Is anyone else getting information. I’m not seeing much of it on the MSM. My area and several places in the US and W. Europe seem to have the same problems. Either no one up at the top is connecting the dots or more likely, they don’t think it’s a big deal. I’ve heard the official word on the cause is solar flare.

That would explain the sporadic blackouts and problems with electronics.

It does not explain the behavior observed in these areas. It’s possible the confusion and panic reported is a mass hysteria from the glitchy gadgets. I do not think it’s possible that solar flares affect people like that. Maybe someone knows better than me.

I’ve found some conspiracy theories that say CERN, FEMA, even the Mayans and the predicted apocalypse is behind this. Incidentally, that’s how I noticed it wasn’t just around these parts these things were happening. Obviously I’m fascinated by conspiracy theory and the Mayan scare.

Apocalypse is my personal devil. Some like to think the devil is following them around, personally hounding them until they turn to evil. Makes you even feel a bit important, despite the horror that should imply. Apocalypse fills the same void for others, makes us special somehow – the world we’ve shared with millions of others over the millennia – now after all that, it’s ending, and it’s happening to us. Now.

Of course this solar flare or whatever isn’t the end of the world. But who can blame a guy for indulging his ego a bit?

Conspiracies and Magic

Rolling blackouts, solar flares, conspiracy theories were tumbling around in my head. Troubling events evince questions in dreams.

What if there is a powerful magic to the world? Carefully guarded by elites, but necessarily so. For this is the power that has ever plundered civilization and created chaos. This power, if widely known, flips the human game like an angry teen flips a board game. What if this magic can find its own way out?

Dragons rest, dream of days and fire, wait to be known again.

When Did I Type This?

Okay clearly it was me: By Dan On 

The US government got in on the act Monday, denying the possibility of the end times approaching. Kindly, they deigned to not bring up legitimately scary events in their reassurance that no, the world isn’t going to end.

Whoever wrote it though, I do like this:

Apocalypse is my personal devil. Some like to think the devil is following them around, personally hounding them until they turn to evil. Makes you even feel a bit important, despite the horror that should imply. Apocalypse fills the same void for others, makes us special somehow – the world we’ve shared with millions of others over the millennia – now after all that, it’s ending, and it’s happening to us. Now.

Continuing Confusion – Solar Flare, Really?

This solar flare thing is getting more and more frightening. It seems less possible as a likely cause. There are strange stories floating around the internet about lost data on computers. It would be one thing if ALL data were lost in these cases but people are coming up with unprecedented numbers of corrupted files and half done files. I have one file on my computer, for instance, an essay I was typing, that has the first third of what I typed and the last third but nothing in the middle. Like everything I did for that middle three hours was banished to limbo. Dev forums seem to be spiking with complaints of software issues. Entire websites faulty. Hardware problems are intermittent but data issues seem permanent so far. You computer will come back on but the data doesn’t come back.

It still seems limited mostly to W. Hemisphere areas so the solar flare theory still holds there. The hardware/software issues can be explained by this, though it’s not as likely as they seem to want us to believe. It would take quite a flare to do that kind of damage.

What doesn’t make sense to me are the reports of rogue information. We’ve got people talking like some alien abductee from The X-Files who suddenly looks up and notices three hours have passed that they don’t remember at all. The only ‘evidence’ that anything happened in that time is bits and pieces from the net: random tweets, news sites, blogs,  all with information that never seemed to happen.

Complex armageddon prank in like of the coming ‘Mayan Doomsday’? Or general hysteria? I am starting to feer it’s something deeper than that. What makes it personal: many of the people reporting these issues also mention this confused feeling I’ve been having trouble with.
