Apocalypse or New Era
The ancient Maya civilization of Mesoamerica - practicing the sciences and had very deep knowledge of astronomy - the time measured on the basis of a complex system of cycles that take into account relationships and mutual relations between the various elements of the universe. Translating this peculiar kind of counting according to the most well-known terms of the Gregorian calendar, we would do coincide approximately the end of the current calendar year 2012 with the completion of one cycle of the Maya, after which - according to a number of insights metascientifiche and mysterious prophecies - should occur something absolutely shocking enough to cause a fracture net within the historical flow.
This is the point of departure (of no return?) That offers next to a multitude of conceptual and philosophical speculations, doubts and assumptions about the meaning of human existence in terms of the systems of the universe, the laws governing the conduct of Chaos penetrate the forms of the sensible world.
What will be waiting for us to step from this to the next was, and how will this transition? Will certainly be a frightening event or will be as terrifying occult, mysterious, unknown?
Nothing could be excluded - in the most logical of probabilistic calculations - a universal rebirth once the highest spiritual evolution, an attraction and polarity reversal magnetic sfociasse the size of a global ataraxia.
The term "Apocalypse" can be considered as a vox media: in addition to the meaning of huge destruction, tragedy, cataclysm preserves parallel to revelation, unveiling.
The hypothesis of a possible knowledge of alien species - possible and desirable, according to the theory of space-time tunnels made by quantum physics - may be seen with both terror as well as a possibility of development and real cosmic community.
Artistic expression - as well as everything that concerns human thinking and doing - it can certainly find answers or solutions on the contrary will no doubt further and different complications, will be inconsistent and contradictory, will be the visionary intuition of a field elastic or dynamic measurement space, the imitation of life or the vertigo of the unlimited, in a word, is - itself - the true catastrophe.
A sudden twisting and vague that has the extraordinary, the transfiguration that is suggestive, overcoming energy, not as aesthetic vision, but as the creation of the universe.
