Everybody knows that The End of the World is scheduled for December 21 according to the Mayan prophesy. And everyone has his own way of dealing with this — the greatest crisis of all. We just learned of one man who has a unique way of handling things.
We present to you, dear reader, some excerpts from Sedona Man Plans on Jumping Off a Tall Rock on December 21, Believes He’ll Land in a Portal, which appears in the Phoenix New Times of Phoenix, Arizona. The bold font was added by us:
A Sedona man plans on jumping off a very tall rock on December 21, and he believes he will be landing in a cosmic portal. Peter Gersten, a retired lawyer — who, at one point, became “professionally involved with the UFO phenomenon” — has been detailing his lead-up to the opening of a portal at the base of Sedona’s Bell Rock for at least two years now.
That sounds like as good a plan as any. Sedona is about 120 miles north of Phoenix, and here’s some information about Bell Rock. According to Wikipedia, “Some New Age writers consider Bell Rock to be a portal into the Earth or a gateway to other dimensions.”
The Phoenix New Times quotes Mr. Gersten. This comes from the conclusion of his website, A LEAP OF FAITH:
Most of you will think that I am delusional and that my insane act will certainly result in my death. Death is inevitable – at least nowadays – and 100 years from now it won’t matter whether I died in 2012 or 2013 or even 2020. But I believe that some type of cosmic portal will be opening at that time and place and that an opportunity will present itself. I fully expect that it will either lead to the next level of this cosmic program; freedom from an imprisoning time-loop; a magical Martian-like bubble; or something equally as exotic.
In March 2012 I will reach 70 years of age and nine months later we arrive at the cosmic coordinate. I think it will then be time for me to move on – in one form or another. I’d like to see what else our Cosmic Computer has to offer.
A perfectly reasonable explanation. Here’s one last excerpt from the news story:
Now, it’s not entirely clear if Gersten is actually going to jump off this rock on December 21. He is, however, going to be up there that day, waiting. “I will be on the top of Bell Rock on 12-21-2012 from at least 11:00 am to either midnight or the manifestation of an extraordinary event – whichever comes first,” Gersten told us in an e-mail.
We hope it works out for the guy.
