    The Mayans were big on the solstice. It's 12/21/12. And it's bogus even for the Mayans since the real "end" of the current cycle would be about 2600 years from now. I think it's 4773 or there about when the end of 20th cycle hits. This is merely the 13th of 20 cycles in the "long count" and the Mayans didn't see 13 as unlucky. It's just another number to them.

    To me progress is not so much a goal as it is a process and I believe it will not follow a straight course. Remember, the drops of water that form the river may not take the shortest path but they will still reach the ocean.
