Doomsday: A Mind Blowing Non-Prophecy 

Almost everyone, within every generation of every era, in every place that ever had a culture; of every one true religion within politically corrupt and bankrupt spirituality; all over the great big, round [or once flat] world has thought that the world was or is going to end. This is probably because of the general understanding that the world will end at some point, proven by theoretical science and stated by many a  colorful prophecy.

But most precisely, the world as we know it will end at the point of our own dying day. 


The fear of apocalypse is merely the fear of a comfortable death and the avoidance of a humble one.  Doom and Gloom tactics are quite simply...chances to speculate on the importance of ourselves. Those ideas are cloaked in the hopes of going out with a great big, grand and intentional bang.  Perhaps it gives another chance at chance. 

The notion of the end of time is an advanced animal's privilege and becomes a  boring luxury. When life itself is feared, it is feared out of complacency.  At that point, it seems that the only survival we are up against is the crushing weight of our own egos.  We are gasping for air and suffocating by the weight of it all in a highly complex world. 

But rather than using our intense and powerful breath to breathe deeply, get up and overthrow that ugly beast, all we can do is wallow in our pity and seep slowly into the ground. The only thing left to do in this case is to create a doomsday underworld with our remnant imagination, instead of using it to kick the devil’s ass and create a heaven on earth.

It is the paradox of a privileged yet unfortunate soul to be in this miraculous day and age, spending all of his precious time on fear, with not even a dime left for love or life.  Many souls drift aimlessly through their lives in search of a perfect souvenir for their deaths. While they cling to the artificial plastic, they do not realize the higher power or the one that is within them. 

If only they would realize the power of now, they would know deep down that they cannot take this world with them.  That aha moment at the last minute is the suffocation of eternity.  They realize they cannot go back to the store to return the souvenir. They can never regain the time badly spent.

Whether it is science to theorize, or a revelation to prophecise, the end of the world is never near--if you choose to have no fear!
