I found the following article which I thought was a pretty good summary of the research on 2012 from the works of many familiar names including David.

The Shift in Human Consciousness

Are you aware that a Shift in human consciousness is occurring even as you listen to these words that employs celestial triggers such as supernovas and Earth's alignment with Galactic Center in the years leading up to 2013 to trigger the evolution of our species?

This Shift has been documented in a stimulating multimedia presentation entitled "Preparing for the Shift," by Barry and Janae Weinhold, Ph.D.s. Over decades devoted to the study of consciousness and evolution, the Weinholds, both trained psychologists and authors, have gathered overwhelming evidence that humanity is in the middle of a long-awaited Shift in consciousness predicted in hundreds of indigenous cultures all over the world.

Today this Shift is visible nearly every time you open a newspaper, turn on the TV, or check your email. It can be seen in the breakdown of many old structures such as those that underpin governments, banks, corporations and churches, as well as in families, couples, and individuals. It is also evident in the ecological breakdown of numerous Earth systems, a widespread perception time is accelerating, drastic changes in weather patterns (Global Warming), more people feeling overwhelmed by modern life's complexity, and increased polarization between groups, religions, and regions.

Fortunately, along with signs of breakdown, the Weinholds emphasize there is also considerable evidence of breakthrough: the appearance of stunningly gifted children in unprecedented numbers, the emergence of innovative and integrated healing modalities, people becoming less "religious" and more "spiritual," and the dawning of new communities and social structures based on servant leadership and other "win-win" partnership principles.
