excerpt from an English translation of his speech:
-And I would like to say that according to the Mayan Calendar the 21st of December marks the end of the non-time and the beginning of time. It is the end of the Macha & the beginning of the Pacha. It is the end of selfishness & the beginning of brotherhood. It is the end of individualism & the beginning of collectivism… the 21st of December this year.
-The scientists know very well that this marks the end of an anthropocentric life and the beginning of a biocentric life. It is the end of hatred & the beginning of love. The end of lies & the beginning of truth. It is the end of sadness & the beginning of joy. It is the end of division & the beginning of
unity. This is a theme to be developed, that is why… we invite you, those who bet on mankind, we invite those who want to share their instances for the good of mankind…
And to add to that, Bolivia’s Foreign Minister said:
According to the “long counting” Maya calendar on 21 December 2012 will be the end of a civilization and the beginning of another one that implies spiritual transition towards a new cosmic conscience.
