Many celebrities are saying that 2012 could be the end of the world as we know it.
Stars who have publicly said 2012 will be “The End” include Woody Harrelson, Lil’ Wayne, Joe Rogan, Montel Williams and Shirley MacLaine.
Now, Dan Aykroyd can be added to that illustrious list.
Pop-renaissance man Akroyd, 57, who his autographing bottles of his Crystal Head Vodka at a Las Vegas Albertsons (4 p.m. Tuesday, 10250 W. Charleston Blvd.) and giving Wednesday’s keynote address at the Nightclub & Bar Convention at the Las Vegas Convention Center, says he thinks “the UFO phenomenon is going to figure greatly” in a 2012 “revelation,” when “the end of the world will come.”
“It won’t be the end of the world physically as we know it, as depicted in the movie. But it will be the end of consciousness and the end of perception as we know it,” says Akroyd.
Aykroyd, a lifetime benefactor of MUFON.com, has visited the Nevada town of Rachel on Extraterrestrial Highway and marveled at “real photographs” there of sightings.
“These aren’t hoaxes or fakes,” he said. “Dozens of Army officers, police, sheriffs, emergency workers — people who are outside all day, all night, all the time — are consistently coming forward to report events.”
UFO phenomena could be elements in a 2012 realignment, perhaps as mass revelations or mass sightings, he said.
“Mass telepathic content has already occurred throughout North America on many occasions, the last notable one being in 1994 in (Quebec), where there was an incident that involved about 2,000 people being called to their back porches to look up into the sky and witness an event with a craft at the same time. That was a telepathic event where they were all contacted.”
“As Shirley MacLaine puts it: The light is going to go out in the next few years, 2012, and a new perception will come on.
“Whether that has to do with the dominance of dark matter in the universe — or some triumph/domination of good and evil — the light we know now, whether that’s a good light or a bad light, is going to change.
“There’s going to be a phase-wave shift in everything, and that’s very exciting. I don’t think it’s destructive. I think it’s going to be very constructive.”
“I think we should open our minds and start being better human beings to each other, and accept that this may be the way of life. We’ve got to be more compassionate, more loving, more positive thinking.”
A worst-case predicted scenario is that “the good light” will go out and we will experience “the bad light.” If that happens, people who practice on behalf of the good light will be even more pressed to “fight” against “whatever darkness is coming,” he said.
How does Nevada fit into all this? Hugely. Akryod responded by unfurling an incredibly deep knowledge of Las Vegas and Nevada and reflected on the UFO culture of Rachel; the state’s military; Nevada’s “beautiful topography”; ex-mob lawyer and Las Vegas Mayor Oscar Goodman’s adeptness at handling issues; the strength of “first families” and entrepreneurs in Nevada, such as the Maloofs; the positive ways Vegas embraces performance artists; our liberal attitudes toward leisure; UNLV’s educational culture; and the big brains of math doctorates who work for multidynamic hotels.
Many of those strengths mean Las Vegas could take in refugees in 2012, he said. “There’s no city on Earth that handles more people more efficiently. If you had to create an exodus of 100,000 people, where they had to flee from their native land, they could be put up in Las Vegas with no problem.”
