Earl Patterson’s band SALT the cure for D mas, launches their prophetic presentation for Carnival 2012, called ‘2012 the Living Prophecies.’ Designed by Keith Mc Lean the band explores the belief of several ancient civilisations that the earth will experience a rebirth in the year 2012, bringing an end to its 4th great year (a cycle of 5000 years ) and starting a 5th cycle called the age of Aquarius.(see the synopsis below.) for more info see their FB page.

The inspiration for the presentation “2012” - The Living Prophecies, is based on the ancient Mayan, Hopi Indian, Chinese (I Ching), and Hindu societies and religions, all of whom predicted that the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2012 ~ precisely at 11:11 AM Universal Time ~ marks the end of the World’s Fourth Great Year Cycle. It is believed that the world goes through periods of destruction and renewal every 5000 years or so and on December 21 2012 the World is about to enter a new age (The Fifth Great Year Cycle called the Age of Aquarius).
The overall theme of these prophesies is that the Earth will soon go through a great purification. It is predicted that horrific events, natural disasters and destruction will accompany the New Age.
While doomsayers believe predictions will come to past, these ancient prophecies emphasize themes of transformation and renewal for the New Age. It is said that the cycle we are ending is one that is dominated by materialism and egoism. The prophecies warn that the continued survival of the World after 2012 is dependent on the willingness of the human race to observe the Laws of Creation that honor the positive spirit humankind and the interdependence of all life forms.
It is interesting to note that there are no further calendars, predictions, or indications of the continued state of our civilization… as we know it… beyond 21-12-2012.
