So is everyone familiar with the 2012 Phenomenon? If not, here's a link to the Wikipedia article on it.
Basically, December 21, 2012 (12-21-12) is the end of a 5, 125 year long cycle in the Mayan calendar, and as such, all kinds of craziness is supposed to occur on this date.
Some say this is when the world will end, which, I'd kind of like a few more years if possible. I've got some stuff to do. Others predict that this date will be the start of a huge cultural shift that will essentially change life as we know it. Either way, something big is allegedly happening on this date.
Now, the ancient Mayans also believed that the world was supported on the back of a giant sea turtle, so of course I take everything they say with a grain of salt, but there is a part of this 2012 Prediction that I will happily buy into.
Apparently, there is a place on earth that will be the Power Point or Point of Light during this cultural shift, or a place that is spared from Natural disaster. This place is said to be at the convergence of 3 rivers. Sound familiar? That's right, Pittsburgh!
The point, has been a sacred sight forever, hosting holy rituals performed by native americans, and believing to be a portal into other worlds. Pittsburgh's 3 rivers, plus the 4th underground "hidden" river, as well as the Allegheny Mountains makes for a place of great energy.
"If you live in Pittsburgh, you are here for an important reason: to witness, nurture, and transmit the pure incoming light of this universal portal. Being aware of the legacy of our ancient landscape is crucial in the evolution of consciousness of this planet and our species at this time.”
So there you go, we're rated the Most Livable City in America, AND we have a universal portal. I don't believe in miracles, I believe in Pittsburgh!
