2012 – The Twelve – The Mayan Calendar

Mayan Day Keeper

Saturday, September 4, 2010 hurricane Earl arrived in Halifax as a category 1 storm. It went directly over the city and left us without power for about 10 hours. The evening before we watched the “movie 2012”, which we thought was appropriate in light of the upcoming hurricane. The movie was great from a movie effects perspective, but nothing to crow about from the story line.

For the last 10 years I have been interested in the Mayan Calendar and so follow the steady stream of information about what we can expect in 2012, but I don’t believe in all the hype. I believe that things will turn out totally different than expected.

On Sunday after the storm I went to the local Chapters bookstore and came upon a book that seemed to talk to me. It is called “The Twelve” by William Gladstone and has something to do with 2012. I am only halfway through the book and find it an enjoyable read and can’t wait to find out the ending. I haven’t peeked yet at the last few pages, which is what I usually do. I will report back when I have fully read the book.

Here is a summary of the book I found on

From Publishers Weekly

Gladstone’s meandering debut, the latest thriller tied to the mystical date of December 12, 2012, when Mayan legend predicts the world’s end, charts the life of Max Doff, starting with his conception in 1949 in Tarrytown, N.Y. After Max dies briefly at the age 15, he has a vision of 12 people. On returning to consciousness, he begins a decades-long quest to find them. His path takes him to Yale, where his radical philosophical ideas lead to his forced departure from campus. A formulation like ‘A is, and is not, equal to A’ as the ultimate equation in explaining how to penetrate the impenetrable intellectual domain of ‘understanding understanding’ is symptomatic of Max’s difficulty in getting his message, whatever it actually is, across. Max then begins globe-trotting as part of the production team for a documentary on ancient astronauts. Serendipitous encounters with the twelve will strike many readers as more contrived than magical. (Sept.)
