Web Bot is a computer program that is designed to make predictions. Alot of these predictions have come true. Yet some have not been completely accurate.
Many people have turned to Web Bot to find out about the famous Mayan end of world prediction. However they have been extremely unsuccessful due to the fact that their is a data gap at the end of 2012 all the way till May of 2013.
This data gap can make you see that it could very well be the end of the world. Because I really don't believe the world will just one day disappear I will try and come up with solutions that may cause such a data gap.
The Web Bot maintainers believe such a data gap may be caused by something that causes our world to be knocked back into pre-electronic state. Such as being placed back before electricity was widely used.
Running with that idea and observing what is going on in the world of the internet today. I have seen more and more attacks on very well known companies. Such hack attack like Synaptic getting their Norton Anti Virus source code stolen. Or Google getting attacked, or the thousands of other known attacks that have taken place recently.
It could very well be that an elite group of hackers will attempt to seize and own the entire internet. If this where to happen they could temporally take Web Bot off line causing a data gap.
Running with the idea of knowing about all of the hacking that has been going on lately. It could be that several governments join together in the attempts to protect the web. In doing so they need to get rid of the internet temporarily in order to make it much more secure to protect from future attacks.
Earlier this year the US government tried to pass the PIPA and SOPA bills. True they didn't get passed. However it could be possible that they could rewrite the bills and try to pass them again. This would limit the amount of information passed around on the web. Which could cause such a data gap in web bot.
Several years ago scientist made prediction that a super solar storm will hit in 2015. A few scientist believe that the solar storm could be much earlier such as near the end of 2012. We have had mild solar storms in the past, which has screwed with our cell phones, radios and TV's. But these things where very mild. A super solar storm could in sense fry all electronics rendering them useless.
Statistics have shown that on average the economy will suffer a major depression approximately every 75 years. We are way past due for this. It is very possible that such thing could happen. If it does more and more people will stop paying their ISP's due to the fact that they just wont be able to afford it. The way we got out of great depression was by using WW2 to our advantage. Hopefully we have grown past the point of war. And can find a more reasonable way of getting out of such a depression. However with the current state of technology and the knowledge of nuclear weapons that we have. If a war did happen it could very well lower the population count to a point where little internet activity will happen.
Another thought that could come to mind could sound a little off the wall to many people. However it shouldn't be left out as possibility is First Contact. If alien beings had the ability to travel light years to the planet earth, it is very possible they have the ability to block anything from being able to detect them from coming.
Another possibility that is extremely far fetched to many people. But still shouldn't be completely ruled out. Is Time Travel. If a time machine did get made, and started becoming more and more widely used. The United Nations would be forced to set in regulations on using such things. This could also account for a data gap in the Web Bot. Because instead of the Web Bot looking a solid future it would get confused, at future that change depending on who or what goes to what time and where in that time.This would require an entire rewrite of the Web Bot source code.
Sorry the above where just a few of my theories of what could happen at the end of 2012. Please feel free to share your ideas for what is to come in 2012.
