The topic has come up several times in the past few posts (Elves, Dragons, Ancient Structures, even as far back as the Pyramid post) regarding to aliens. I listened and launched out on an objective search for a bit of alien intrigue to entertain you and make you wonder. Where do you think that will take us for this Immortal Monday? Let’s zip through the past and take a few minutes to look at those beautifully rich in culture Mayans.
Today, the Mayans remain a huge mystery to us, leaving us with amazing works of art and architecture, as well as detailed prophecies. Their evidence of large mammal and human sacrifice paint a picture of a very graphic culture that we can only begin to imagine. But what happened to these people? That has always been the unanswered question. They simply disappeared around 500 A.D., leaving their cities abandoned, to be reclaimed by the natural habitat surrounding them.
In 1952 the archaeologist Alberto Ruz discovered a sealed passageway when working at the Temple of Palenque. It would lead him to discover the tomb of King Pacal. This alone was an amazing discovery. But what he found chiseled on the stone lid baffled and intrigued him, and many more to follow.
What he found appeared to be the king depicted as an astronaut, piloting his own spaceship. Look closely at the picture. You can see the seat, headrest, air tube and controls. Even the fire from the thrusters. Many theorists have jumped on this bandwagon, loving the idea that the Mayans had help or guidance from any other, smarter sources (The Sky People). How else can you explain their detailed calendar and knowledge of a spherical world when the Europeans still thought the world was flat?
But according to Mayan legend, and many scholars have come to believe it to be so, this elaborate etching is merely a symbol of King Pacal falling into the jaws of the Earth monster each night, only to rise again each day with the power of the sun.
And what about the Mayan Calendar, what do you make of that and the end of this year?………………………………………………… the calendar. Um, ouch.
For the first time in history the Mayan calendar doesn’t continue beyond whatever big event awaits us. Is this because our future is unwritten? Will something befall us or is it a big myth made to scare us? It’s no doubt that the Mayans were a smart people and they knew the cycles of the sun and stars. December 21, 2012 marks the end of the winter solstice. Venus will set and a new phase will begin. NASA predicts that the sun may reverse its magnetic poles in 2012 as a result of our 11 – year sunspot cycle coming to an end. There is a chance that this could have a profound effect on the earth’s own magnetic field, possibly resulting in more of the sun’s protons reaching the Earth’s surface. Could the damage go beyond this? A cleansing by fire of the earth?
Could it happen? My mind is always open to possibilities. Will it happen? I haven’t jumped on that bandwagon just yet. What about you? Where do you weigh in? What are your thoughts on the Mayan predictions of our life changing event at the end of the year? And do you think they had help or even were that help inscribing those predictions on the tablets…or were they “the helpers”? Mayans – did they know The Sky People or were they The Sky People?
