The end of the world should start with a flash of lightning

The good thing about the end of the world, as what was being hyped to the full would end today, the 21st of December 2012, is that it's not going to happen yet. Some people may have just misinterpreted what the Mayan calendar was saying: December 21, 2012 is the date believed to be the beginning of a new cycle and not, as what many falsely announced, the end of the world. So what if the world ends today? What can you do about it? If you can do something to stop it then good, if not then just fine.

The end of the world I think, if you're going to ask me what's my idea about it, should start with a flash of lightning that will be seen throughout the four corners of the world. Then there will be a huge confusion from almost every direction, people will run to and from as if clueless about what's going to do of what's happened. But that's only my idea. I hope my imagination betrays me because I would really like to see the end of the world as something that we should not be afraid of. It's a transition by which the old is giving way to a new, much better form.

Scientists at NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) have earlier announced that the said apocalypse to occur on December 21, 2012 has no scientific evidence to support such a claim and that the world would continue to keep on spinning even after that. So, for me, end of the world is no big deal. Or, is it? And how would you like it viewing your own self, though the end of the world you may have survived, only to live for 60, or maybe 70 something years of your entire life? But the apocalypse may have found a new form of humor in the words of Robert Graves when he compared it to a perfect poem which is, according to him, impossible. Once it had been written, the world would end.
