I was co incidently thinking of Ascension today, 21 days to the world end and I've already made my new year plans :p lol
Even though I do not know much about how the distruction will take place, if it will that is, I've learnt that the earth that is operation in the 3rd dimention will shift to the 4th Dimention. Also, there is news that nasa pridicts that there is going to be complete darkness from the 21st to the 23rd december and earth that is currently operating at 3D will shift to 0 D and then move to 4 D. This process is assumed to be painless by most spiritual teachers and there is going to be a remarkable shift in consciousness, it calls for the end of an old cycle and the beginning of a new one.
We are all going to move to the new earth which is a 4th dimentional earth, there was information that the earth has come to an end about 7 times, and end does not mean death, its like, there have been times where we have found utensils, maschines and the things olden day people ie, the mayans used but not a trace of their bodies, this is because they did not die, they just shifted to a new reality. That's called ascension and that is what is likely to happen :)
Let's be positive and hope for the best :)
