I've always had this weird intuitive sense that tingles when I think about the roots of humanity. Like somewhere deep within my soul is the answer to why it is that humans are here.... why do we matter? Ancient societies questioned this too. Theory ran the perspective of human importance in relation to the universe. As the human race discovers more abut the Universe, we also discover more about ourselves, and where we fit within it all. I think that we as a modern day society have lost touch to ancestral roots. I feel we are in need of reconnecting and opening ancient eyes within ourselves to perspectives that once guided our now foggy perception.
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.....
