True & Honest Fan

That's the thing, all this stuff seems too much to be a coincidence, while obviously there are rational limitations to how true this stuff is, at the same time, like I said, it's too much to be mere coincidence.Typhon was a giant, and is best known for being the god-slayer that challenged zeus, in some myths almost winning. After his defeat he would become the father of destructive storms.
The concept of snakes is a very interesting one because depending on the mythology it can mean different things. Although I have been told that the rod of asclepius actually doesnt have snakes, but a different animal. I'm not sure of that.
Generally tho, snakes are associated with a) the earth b) evil/corruption c) chaos. All throughout mythology and theology the concept of an evil snake keeps reappearing, which then is smited by a hero/god. Apollo and the python of delphi. Thor and Jormungardr. Zeus and Typhon. St. George and the dragon. Beowulf, Heracles, Siegfried. I'm not an expert on eastern (indo-european) mythologies but parallels probably can be drawn as well there.
Air/sky on the other hand is often connected with the sun, good, order etc etc. Apollo was the god of the sun and the sky. Thor of thunder. etc etc. Maybe it is meant in a way of perversion of the abilities of the bringers of order?
I'm not an expert in astrology so I'll ask a friend what the thinks about the age of aquarius.
Generally tho, the ancient myths are just that bit too correct to be just mere coincidence. They're also waaay to complicated to be a mere supernatural explanation of natural events. (e.g. the sun moves because its apollos chariot). In the same vein I think the Mayans were absolutely right and an era ended in 2012. It wasn't the flashy end of the world like hollywood likes to depict, but something far more insidious.
It certainly is worth it just to take a step back sometimes, to step away from the internet and all distractions and just contemplate life when out in nature. You don't have to become an ascetic who fasts fourty days (I'd even advice against it). Even if its only an hour spent in nature with no distractions, it is certainly worth it.
The whole Mayan 2012 thing is a perfect example of that, there was a time in which I would have dismissed that as pure hokum, as I would have dismissed most of this stuff, but now with the benefit of hindsight we see just how much things have changed since 2012 and you ask yourself the question, can that be just a big coincidence? It really doesn't seem like that's possible, 2012 may not have been the end of the world but it was a date of some significance to the Mayans and sure enough, it marked something of significance.
It's just freaky, I don't know what it all means but the modern world has taught me not to smugly dismiss anything off hand anymore no matter how absurd, when you live in times as crazy as this anything starts to seem possible, no matter how crazy.
