Abstract:

In tracing the meaning of the end of the Mayan calendar in 2012 and the imminent transition from one world to another prophesied by the Hopi Indians, Pinchbeck synthesizes indigenous cosmology, alien abduction, shamanic revivalism, crop circles, psychedelic visions, the current ecological crisis, and the Judeo-Christian Apocalypse into a new vision for our time. The result is an inquiry into where humanity is immediately headed--and its startling congruence with the ideas of the mysterious civilization of the Classical Maya.--From publisher description.
