Introduction: Through a Glass Darkly
"A great cycle of time ends in 2012 according to the Maya, but the calendar continues. Second, no one has ever found a Mayan prophecy about 2012. The actual, ancient Maya did not predict any particular happening in 2012 except the end of one cycle and the beginning of the next. "
Most of us sense that the human species is hurtling toward some sort of event horizon. Images of apocalypse, extinction and metamorphosis haunt the collective imagination, but most efforts to look through the dark glass of the future and see what’s up ahead have been dismal failures.
There are certain parameters and domains which need to know or understand their limits. Science works within parameters and considerations that pertain to the physical world. It's methodology is something whereby one can repeat experiments to prove or disprove theories and hypothesis that scientists speculate.
Heaven is outside of the domain of science, it cannot be proven or disproven. It cannot be measured, it cannot be assessed, it cannot be confined within a closed system for testing or working with.
