Is the end of world imminent?

In this days is usually to listen that people says things like this: "According to Maya`s prophecies 2012 is the date of great cataclysms like floods, earthquakes and tsunamis";  "The corruption of Catholic church, the conflicts and wars around the world, the new viral sickness are unanswerable signals of the Apocalypsis, you must read the sacred texts, we are in the end of the times, regrets of your sins". But, is really the end of world imminent? We need regrets of our sins?

The last year wasn`t the Judgement Day .
In year 2000, date of end of millennium, all people was worried. According to theory`s of the moment the collapse of informational systems could to break a nuclear holocaust. But nothing was happen and all people was happy until the Maya`s prophecy turns in popular knowledge. The profecy of the moment says that Mayas  people, an advanced civilization that disappear mysteriously and that developed precise and high detailed studies of cosmic cycles, could have predicted the end of a cosmic cycle that could represents the end of solar system and consequently the annihilation of Earth. It`s popular interpretation derives of the following fact: "According the scientific calculations the Maya`s calendar finish in the year 2012". The logic of the popular interpretation reveal that the form in what`s occidental reason concibed the time is linear. It means that the facts in the natural order has a develop determinated by the succesive relation of causes and consequences until an indeterminated anomaly marks the end of the serie; for example, in religious natural order the situation that marks the end of the succesion of causes and consequences is designated the Judgement Day. Then, the possibility that a consequence turns into a pure cause is impossible because that involves that natural order of the facts could be circular. Precisely, the maya`s reason conceive the order of the facts in a circular way, and it`s implies that times return. Because of, a linear reason can`t be used to understand the way in that a circular reason conceive/construct the natural-social world: that times has a neccesarily is so different to that times return. By this I don`t share te opinion of fatalistic people that lives in a fatalistic world. The end of a cicle is just the end of cicle and the beginning of a new "somersault".

The famous Maya`s calendar.

I don`t believe in apocalyptics theories, the "end of world" is part of a teleological system of ideas and I think that teleology is a mechanism of mental control developed in societies where inequalities is the estructural principle of order. By this reason I prefer not to talk you what I would do in the remaining time I have; it`s is really irrelevant because the end of "the personal world" could be today or the day after tomorrow and you shouldn`t to planificate your life, you just should try to feel comfortable and enjoy your days: the end of the world happens all days a lot of times. Then, is most amusin to think that Maya`s cosmological thinkers were joking us.
A possible answer to the mistery.
Remember friends, the Judgement Day could be today. I see you in march.
