I'm just amazed by the amount of comments received and discussions that are taking place here. That's just what I intended for so much thanks to you all!
In light of all the discussion, I've read through the comments and decided to try and provide answers to some of them. So, I'll just jump right in . . .
Ben stated: "The Earth will line up with the galactic center of the galaxy in 2012? No. No it won't. It already did, in 1997. I don't know about any of you, but I didn't change that much. So any effects that you expect to take place in 2012 already did, in 1997."
Answer: It is not the Earth that will align. The 2012 alignment is that of the Sun with the Center of the Galactic Equator, which is the precise mid-line running down the Milky Way Galaxy, where we now know a massive black hole exists. (Yet somehow, the Mayans have always known of it's existence.)
Rlowe said: "I'm still a skeptic though. how could a web bot that's designed to predict stock market activity be able to predict anything not directly related to the stock market?"
Answer: Here's how it works - as provided by the bot guys at Urban Survival.com . . .
"A system of spiders, agents, and wanderers travel the Internet, much like a search engine robot, and look for particular kinds of words. It targets discussion groups, translation sites, and places were regular people post a lot of text.
When a "target word" is found, or something that was lexically similar, the web bots take a small 2048 byte snip of surrounding text and send it to a central collection point. The collected data was then filtered, using at least 7-layers of linguistic processing in Prolog, which was then reduced to numbers and then a resultant series of scatter chart plots on multiple layers of Intellicad. Viewed over a period of time, the scatter chart points tend to coalesce into highly concentrated areas. Each dot on the scatter chart might represent one word or several hundred.
To define meanings, words or groups of words have to be reduced to the their essence. The process is like looking for least common denominators among groups of words. The core of the technology, therefore, is to look at how the scatter chart points cluster - condensing into high dot density areas which we call entities and then dissolving or diffusing over time as the entities change. Do a drill down into a dot and you get a series of phrases.
What becomes obvious when reading about the technology is that it sometimes reads a bit like the I Ching (the Chinese Book of Changes) because the technology doesn't come out and say "go look for a terrorist attack over there" What it does is it gives phrases that would be associated with how people talk about an event, or more accurately, how they change their speech to reflect their thought processes because of an event.
The web bot technology apparently taps in to an area of preconscious awareness. Dean Radin's paper "Time-Reversed Human Experience: Experimental Evidence and Implications". The mind-bending evidence in Radin's work is that in a laboratory, people begin to react to an event as early as 6-seconds before it takes place. In other words, if you are about to show someone a horribly grotesque picture of something, they will already be physically reacting to it before the picture actually becomes visible. Up to 6-seconds. In quantum terms, Radin's work demonstrates that people are physically able to perceive 6-seconds into the future.
It's as if changes in language precede large emotional events. The larger the emotional impact of an event, the more advance notice the bots seem to give. If you picture some pin holes in a piece of paper - and you imagine being able to look through each pinhole for a fraction of a second - with the objective of seeing the future on the other side of the paper - that's where the web bots are today."
PHP Encoder asked: Could it not just be that this web bot is picking up LOADS of references to 2012 and that's why its coming up with this prediction as they're all talking about the same thing?
Answer: Sure, that counts for something. However, there's much more to it than that. Please refer to Dean Radin's paper: Time-Reversed Human Experience: Experimental Evidence and Implications.
"Ever since Plato's Allegory of the Cave, people have sensed that odd things go on at the archetype level of consciousness. The web bots are an attempt to use the high data density of the Internet to sample language and seek linguistic shifts that we believe may precede events. The initial results suggest that language shifts on a macro level begin to occur 45 to 90 days before society-changing events. We believe we've demonstrated that changes in language do indeed precede events - on a far grander scale than Dean Radin's work first suggested - and these language changes are available by sampling routine Internet traffic." - Urban Survival.com

Annonymous asked: Where can we get FACTUAL information about the "Web Bot Project?"
Answer: From the bot project operators, of course! Visit Peoplenomics or Urban Survival.com and go grom there . . .
And for those of you fearing the end of the world - stop doing so - and try to consider this. Could it just be the end of our world "as we know it" rather than a literal end? That's what I believe it will bring about. A societal movement into a higher consciousness. And it's possible that the catalyst for this movement will be devastating earthly events that will remind us of our ignorance as earthly beings. Because we are unappreciative of our surroundings and slowly destroying the environmental gifts placed here for us. It is not logical to think that there are no consequences for this ignorance . . . .
I think we are already slowly beginning to realize that it's possible that we are two halves which make a whole - part spiritual being, part earthly being. But we've forgotten about our spiritual selves and I believe we will be remembering our divinity soon. That's what I believe the significance of 2012 will be, and that's just my opinion. Feel free to air yours in our comment section here.
That's as far as I've gotten so far. But that's enough to begin investigating for yourself and discussing here, right? So what do you think . . . . does any of this change your opinion at all?
