Asheville, NC (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
On November 28th NASA scientists spoke out to try and calm anyone that is uneasy about the Mayan End of the World prophecy which is scheduled in two weeks. Using a Google+ Hangout, a panel of scientists discussed why we are in no danger of an end of the world scenario later this month. David Morrison, an astrobiologist at NASA Ames Research Center, said that he has received many emails from frightened individuals about the Mayan prediction. Several citizens, mainly young people, told Morrison that they were having trouble eating and sleeping. The Asheville Jung center discussed why people around the globe are scared of what might happen on 12/21/12 at a recent video seminar. The Asheville Jung Center was founded in 2008 to advance the psychology of Carl Jung and promote an international Jungian community. It is affiliated with innerQuest Psychiatry and Counseling, a regional psychiatrist group.
NASA scientists dismissed the current rumors of how the world could come to an end so soon. They confirmed that there are no rogue planets close enough to hit the earth anytime soon. If there were any rogue planets close by we would be able to see them brightly at night. In fact, the nearest object that will pass by earth anytime soon is an asteroid in February of 2013 that will not come within 18,000 miles of the Earth. There is also no evidence that a solar flare will end the world. There is just not enough activity to suggest such a theory is possible. Some other theories included the Earth falling into a black hole or that the Earth’s magnetic field would reverse. These too were debunked by the scientists. Mitzi Adams, who is a heliophysicist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, was quoted saying “The greatest threat to Earth in 2012, at the end of this year and in the future, is just from the human race itself.”
People are looking for clues that can help decipher the meaning and implications of the Mayan prophecies. The impression that the world may come to some cataclysmic end is deeply etched into the human psyche and appears as a recurring motif. The Asheville Jung Center is at the leading edge of exploring the significance of the Mayan Prophecy. “There is an aspect of the primitive part of our brain that fears the abyss; this finds expression in sacred literature and in various myths and rituals of ancient cultures, and the failure to acknowledge this notion of annihilation may result in acting out these themes in aberrant ways." says Dr. Steven Buser, co-founder of the Asheville Jung Center. Dr. Len Cruz, also of the Asheville Jung Center, offered several examples of aberrant patterns evident in current events ”…the denial of the evidence concerning environmental degradation, the paralysis in dealing with the impending fiscal crisis in the US and elsewhere, and the psychic numbing as described by the psychiatrist, Robert J. Lifton in association with the threat of nuclear destruction that was initially identified in survivors of Hiroshima.”
