DEFINITIONS

End of the World as we Know it:

The belief fostered by Carl Llewellyn Weschcke and based on the Mayan Prophecy, that the world would end on December 21, 2012, that there will be a dramatic rebirth of the human spirit and a new global civilization structured to meet the challenges of international terrorism starting in 2001, religious extremism, the financial collapse of 2008, and other common threats to planetary survival.

New institutions and international standards are required of nations to participate in new economic, security, educational, legal, health, etc. organizations.
