To inform the audience about the significance of 2012 and what is to be expected.
Most of Mayan history was lost during the fifteenth century when the conquistadors invaded central Mexico. They destroyed all the historical records.
We do know classic Mayan civilization flourished between 200 B.C. and 900 A.D.
By understanding cosmic cycles, the Maya could make predictions thousands of years into the future. The most significant prediction is the transition into a new world order in 2012, through mass destruction or otherwise.
The importance of the date has supported by different groups around the world for millennia.
Most recently, NASA has made bone chilling discoveries about the impact of upcoming solar storms.
As modern science accepts, the Maya knew that the moon has a cycle around the earth; the earth has a cycle around the sun, and the solar system has a cycle in the Milky Way. This cycle takes 26,000 years to complete.
The Maya kept track of a 26,000 year cycle that is broken down into 5 cycles, known as the Long Count, lasting 5,125 years each. The fifth and final Long Count ends on the winter solstice of December 21, 2012
Stone monuments and pyramids were intentionally left behind by the Mayans to alert coming generations to the endpoint of the 26,000 year cycle, 2012. The Maya believed that the “future” or a new world age would lay beyond this point.
“ The Hopi and Mayan elders do not prophesy that everything will come to an end. Rather, this is a time of transition from one world age into another. Their message they give concerns our making a choice of how we enter the future ahead. Our moving through with either resistance or acceptance will determine whether the transition will happen with cataclysmic changes or gradual peace and tranquility. The same theme can be found reflected in the prophecies of many other Native American visionaries from Black Elk to Sun Bear.”-Joseph Robert Jockmans
They maintained a precise mathematical and scientific understanding of astronomical cycles. Most importantly, it was a prophetic calendar. By studying and understanding these cycles, the Maya could predict events thousands of years into the future.
They believed these cosmic cycles and events paralleled our spiritual and collective unconscious.
Because astronomical cycles are predictable, so is the evolution of human consciousness.
They believed that universal processes, like the breathing of the galaxy never changed. Rather, what changed was mans’ consciousness as he passed through it.
earth’s magnetosphere (the region surrounding earth that protects it from electromagnetic radiation) is rapidly thinning in preparation of a polar reversal on earth, which will be initiated by the magnetic activity on the sun.
