One needn't ingest psychedelics, be a shaman, or believe in prophecy to see that countless environmental and social imbalances are about to converge into an inevitable 'perfect storm' at some time in the very near future. 'Singularity' is a word that means 'exponential change,' and whether or not you accept the 2012 prophecy, it is certain that you are already reeling under the accelerating techno-socio-ecological transformations now altering our reality. This crisis is clearly in process, regardless of what date one picks for its culmination. To acknowledge this is not the same as believing that space aliens will whisk us home in a UFO -- there are too many synchronicities here to ignore. Despite the abysmal track record of apocalypse prediction, this is one end-of-the-world 'prophecy' that is actually coming true: by any standard of measurement, our old familiar world is disappearing forever-it just has a bit further to go before trends already in process fulfill themselves.

Jim DeKorne was active in the civil rights and antiwar protests of the 1960s, the Back-to-the-Land and Appropriate Technology movements of the 70s and'80s, and the Psychedelic Renaissance of the '90s. The founding editor/publisher of The Entheogen Review, DeKorne holds a master's degree in creative writing and is the author of four books. He lives on the Big Island of Hawaii.
