Chill people, chill. The world is not going to end in 2012, stated by astronomer Philip Plait .
According to him, the Mayan calendar does not end in 2012, at all. It is like the odometer in your vehicle, as each section of it reaches 9, flips to 0, the next number to start the cycle again. So that when all the numbers again reach 0, the last number will change from 0 to 1, and that’s how a new cycle will start.
But one question arose in my mind that why that cycle ends up only in 2012??? I found it.
The date December 21st, 2012 A.D. (188.8.131.52.0 in the Long Count), represents an extremely close conjunction of the Winter Solistice Sun with the crossing point of the equator of the Milky Way and the path of the Sun, what that ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree.
This is an event that has been coming to resonance very slowly over thousands of years. It will come resolution at exactly 11.11 am GMT.
Mayan scholars have been attempting to correlate the Long Count with the Western Gregorain Calendar. And there has been massive variation in it. In the early 1905, Goodman suggested a correlation only 3 days from the most popular one today, known as the GMT correlation. It was then finalized in 1950 and puts the start of the Great Cycle (day 0.0.0.0.0 ) on 11th August 3114 BC and the end-date (known as 184.108.40.206.0) as 21st December 2012.

Remember the time and date. It’s 11.11 am and 21-12-2012.
