Shambhala, Agharti (Agharta) and 2012, central Asian myths. What do they have in common?

I thought it was quite bizarre to find that there was a legend surrounding Shambhala and Agharti which brought the date of 2012 into the picture as far as coming world changes are concerned. I was reading a book called “The Ancient Wisdom”. Imagine, a central Asian myth that could tie in with other legends surrounding 2012.

They cannot learn or draw on past experiences have problems processing incomplete information. For this reason, ATL and other labs are looking into human brain computing.

I remember that incredible scene from Tomb Raider: Cradle of Life. You know, the one where Lara jumps out of a building under construction and soars through the air like a bird in a flying suit before parachuting into Hong Kong harbour.
