A moment of madness on 12.12.12

IF I understand Simion The Evolutionary Collective correctly, for a limited period only humankind is being offered the opportunity to plunge through some sort of portal, marker or opening prepared by:

Time travelers, many of which (sic) are alive incarnate today on Earth. 

The 12th of the 12th 2012 seems to have been a particularly good moment in time to pop through this window:

Created by the forces of consciousness in your galaxy including astral bodies and inter-dimensional beings.

Unfortunately, I was engaged in more mundane matters on that date to take advantage this marvellous opportunity “be drawn to places of power” where I might “be of service energetically”. Instead I did the laundry, went to the bank, mopped the apartment, walked the pooches and had a long afternoon siesta.

Fortunately, the gateway offer remains open until December 21, so if I vanish between now and that date, you know I’ll have moved over to new dimension or something.

There was, as far as I can make out, no religious significance to 12.12.12, but some imbecile in Texas thought there was, and decided on that date to carve a pentagram into his six-year-old son’s back.

Afterwards, the Fort Worth man, 39-year-old Brent Bartel of Richland Hill, called 911 after using what is believed to be a box cutter to carve the five-pointed star into his son’s flesh. He told the the despatcher:

I shed some innocent blood.

Asked why, he said “with a bit of enthusiasm in his voice” before he hung up:

It’s a holy day.

When authorities arrived, they saw blood smeared around the doorpost of the Bartel home, as if done for some sort of ritual. Police state that they do not know what religion Bartel was following or why he considered 12-12-12 a “holy day.”

Sergeant Nathan Stringer told reporters that Bartel has not offered an explanation for his actions.

Bartel was taken into custody and was charged with aggravated assault with a weapon. He is being held on $500,000 bond. Police state that they also are seeking to have Bartel undergo a mental health evaluation.

But Bartel’s parents state that he does not have mental issues. His mother, Lori Ponce, told reporters:

Brent is not a demon … He loves that boy. Something happened. Don’t paint him as some crazy man. No, that’s not him.

The six-year-old was taken to a local hospital where he was evaluated by doctors. The carving did not require stitches, and the boy was released shortly after. The pentagram is said to have covered nearly the entirety of the child’s back.

While the boy is in satisfactory physical condition, doctors worry about how his emotional state will play out for the rest of his life.

The child’s mother was said to be in a “very emotional state” and requested privacy on behalf of the family.
