First, watch this…
And, now I say this:
Happy Apocalypse Day, everyone. A day in honor of the fact that no one ever really knows what the hell is about to happen.
All hail the Unknown!
But, what really is today? Is it the apocalypse? Perhaps. Is it a paradigm shift? Could be. Is it a day like any other? Depends how you view the any other. What we can say is this:
Today is a day when cynics may bathe in their indirect expressions of pent up aggression and heart break.
Today is a day when believers in the literal end may be forced to create new and exciting ways to interpret their newly prolonged lifespan.
Today is a day when dreamers and fascinators may find themselves marveling at the chaos that is The Great Inevitable Hum of Life.
Today is a day when New Age positivists may finally be able to take that “think it into being” to the next level, since, obviously, they felt the shift.
Today is a day when self-proclaimed rationalists will feel even more certain about their faux-certainty and put pillows under pillows under pillows in order to prop up its propping head.
No matter what, today people will be people, eviscerated by love, hate, jealousy, fear, hope, or the actual imploding of the Earth’s core. Each one trying to figure it out, trying to make some sense out of the senseless, trying to create a way to accept their own inevitable death.
It’s a day of internal soirees.
Rejoice! You are not necessarily not not alone! Sing the day. Sing the day. Sing the day.
