Contrary to popular belief, the Mayans didn’t predict the “end of the world.” Modern man gathered that from reading Mayan history, from their “codex”(books) and their monuments. What they did not believer in was “cosmogenesis,” that the world would be reborn on the winter solstice of 2012 (Dec. 21st).
They came to this conclusion from acquiring the knowledge of precession, which is the wobble of the earth, which takes approximately 26,000 years for a complete circuit. As I related a couple years ago, it is just a measurement of time. An extremely long one.
They considered the sun to be “first father” and the center of the Milky Way was to them “cosmic mother.” So the alignment of the sun with the “womb” of creation, the black hole at the center of our galaxy, was to therm an insemination, a “rebirth” of our world. And they knew about the black hole, somehow.
These jungle dwellers were by no means “mental midgets.” Their astronomy, math and calendars were beyond compare, even at today’s standards. They got their knowledge through “vision quest,” ingesting psychoactive rugs and “journeying” to far off corners of the cosmos to gather info.
Modern man is just starting to realize the knowledge that can be gained from such “trips.” I’ver personally known for years the possibilities of such “journeys,” especially through mushrooms.
As we look around the world today, there is much “change” afoot. So the Mayan “end” date could very well herald a new “start.” The world could use an enema. As I’ver said before, it’s time to go from dominator mode to partnership. Dec. 21st may have catalyzed that notion.
That is the “end” and “start” of the Mayan Long Count. And perhaps those who reject the transition may be in for a rough ride. Peace.
