I have studied the Mayan calendar for almost 4 years. They had 19 calendars, one based on the movement of every planet, including Pluto.
The Long Count calendar is the one where they get the Dec. 21 date.
It was not created by the Maya, they say a white bearded man came out of the clouds around 500BC and gave them that and a couple more.
The Long Count is not a schedule or calendar to do day to day items. It began at the Big Bang, or whatever the beginning was. It is broken into 9
periods of times, each one of those have 7 days and 6 nights.
The 1st period was 16.8 billion years long, 2.4 bil yrs per day.
Each period after tha was 20 times shorter. 800 million yrs for the 2nd, 40 million for the 3rd, and so on.
Each period had a major evolutionary milestone. It all has to do with conciousness. That is what time and space are.
The nine periods end end Dec 2012, the day is not certain. But what happens is man becomes nothing but concious energy, this universe becomes his
playground, and a new set of nine periods begins with a new Big Bang. Accirding to the bearded white guy, (or was white bearded guy?)
this is the 5th time it has happened, and they are still existing in another dimension.
