I don't know what you guys mean by end of the world, but the world won't be annihilated for a LONG time to come, IMHO. What will happen, at some
point according to Hinduism, is the arrival of Kalki (similar description to the second coming of Christ), which will bring about great changes in the
world. A lot of people will die, some will survive. Those that survive will reconnect with their souls and conquer their egos, and essentially lead
a more divine, peaceful life. This will last for a long time, before things start going bad again, and the cycle continues once more where the ego
starts to take over.
Essentially, at some point, upon the arrival of Kalki or the second coming of Christ, or whoever, a new golden age will be ushered in, IMHO.
It's possible the Mayans didn't see past that, though the Hindus see time in a much vaster scale though I don't think they're completely correct
as far as their calculations go.
I've read some near-death experiences that also indicate something similar, like a Golden Age for 1000 years and then the less evolved souls get to
incarnate and fulfill their desires, or something like that.
