Mayans are fascinating culture, but i would like to pine in on the hysteria surrounding the year 2012 in Mayan calendars
2012 is the end of the the Current cycle, and the beginning of the next. Mayans do NOT view time as linear, but as cyclical. there is no beginning or
end, but endless cycles within cycles within cycles. The year 2012 is not the end of the world as viewed by the Mayans, or anyone else i can think of
for that matter.
This has been warped and bent to fit some peoples version of Mayan astronomy and science. I imagine you will sell more books stating it is the end
of the world instead of a new cycle beginning. IN any event people should relax and enjoy what the Mayans truly offer.
The spanish Invaders burned the Mayan codex and libraries, because they could not fathom the knowledge they possesed, and it conflicted with the
church beliefs about God. The fired burned for 4 months, burning the books that the Mayans collected for thousands of years. what a tragic loss.
