Prophecy - It is interesting that many people are interpreting the Maya calendar and other sources as indicating the end of the world in 2011 or 2012. There is also a Hopi prophecy which predicts the coming of the fifth world when the Blue Star Kachina makes its appearance in the heavens. (For numerous articles insert Blue Star Kachina in your browser.) The Hopi word for Sirius is Blue Star Kachina; however, some interpret the blue Kachina as the passing of the comet 17p/Holmes. In the 2007 crossing, the comet suddenly brightened by a factor of a half million and for a while was the largest object in our solar system.
There is an inscribed “Prophecy Rock” on the Hopi reservation, and there are various interpretations associated with the symbols. (Insert Hopi Prohecy Rock in your browser.) The predictions range from the complete destruction of our current world to a modification associated with the appearance of the fifth world. One theory involves reversal of the earth's poles. I have taken the liberty of painting the Blue Kachina as a comet passing over the pueblo on a distant mesa. The light generated by the bright comet could be interpreted as the Blue Kachina crossing the plaza of the pueblo. The mystic appearance of the natives in a bubble represents entering into fifth world which will be emerging. The interior of the other bubbles may represent embryos being created to help populate this new world.
