In Ancient philosophy, humans looked tot he sky for the answers to reality.. to life. We have always inherently followed the cyclical pattern of the Sun, and also the Moon. Our temporal system is all based on the cycles of the celestial bodies. The Universe has always been an object of interest as well as an object of faith.
It has been stated that the Universe started 13.8 billion years ago and that it is still expanding. The Mayan calendar ended in 2012. Coincidentally the age of Pisces also ended in 2012, and Earth has begun shifting into the Age of Aquarius. Is this new astrological age perhaps when humans can learn to reconnect to our roots and become enlightened with the divine interconnections of universal energies?
Only time will tell.....
