10-28-2011--Calleman's calendar end

Today is finally here.  On this particular 13-Ahau, out of all the 13-Ahauob around 12-21-2012, Calleman picked this one, today, to be HIS idea of the "end" of the Mayan calendar.  (Why not 14-July 2012?)
I'm waiting.  The sun is shining.  It's a little cold out.   No end seems to be in sight.
Calleman's fractal concept of the Long Count is that the 13 Baktuns (we are coming to the end of Baktun 12) equal the 13 Heavens.  But somehow he has also decided that the Tzolkin ends today.  As in, tomorrow is NOT 1-Imix, but nothing.  Huh?   But then he hedges and says maybe it will continue.  I really don't pretend to understand his interpretation of the calendars.  It SOUNDS good on the surface, especially if you don't have any background, but when you really sit and think about it, it's all illogical.
His claim:
(T)he universe attains its highest quantum state and creates a new stage for life (at the top of the nine-storied pyramid). It is thus a common misunderstanding that a “new” cycle will begin after the calendar comes to an end. This is a misunderstanding because what is coming to an end is not a cycle to begin with, but nine linear directed evolutionary waves. The only aspect of the prophetic Mayan calendar system that may be described as cyclical is the 260 day tzolkin and this is the only cycle that will come to an end.
I have no idea what that means.  He goes on to say that
This would likely mean an abrupt end to all future energetic regulation of our lives and actions and a sort of freedom shock. Life would be lived fully moment by moment by moment and each moment would be an eternity that would not be organically linked to other moments.
I thought we were all supposed to be living in the moment already?  

You know what the sad thing is?  There really are AWESOME fractals in the Tzolkin.  I wish I could love his ideas, but they don't quite click for me.
I wonder if he will go away tomorrow or jump online to post about today?

Well...OK I won't pretend I understand any of that, but if he's right - NO SNOW for tomorrow! lol ;)
