If you're waiting for the world to come to an end on December 21st, you may want to try some magic mushrooms. Apparently, the prediction didn't come from the Mayans, instead it comes from two newage books from the 70s and 80s.

According to these two books, the outcome of the prediction is that humans will reach a new consciousness predicted by the spirit of the seventh century.

This dude Jose Arguelles who was some hippy guru referenced an obsolete calendar in a book call The Mayan Factor in 1987. He was stated as saying:

He predicted a ‘shift in human consciousness’ - mass enlightenment.”

We have no clue what the hell that means, but if we were to guess, that's one hell of a mushroom trip.

We're sorry to hear that the world will not end, but what if it does?
