Yes specific to the Maya. As far as having no influence I guess it would depend more on what sort of influence we're talking about. If someone from
Nepal has decided he wants to use the Calendar for its spiritual guidance, then I'd say that yes the Mayan calendar does in fact have influence
PE your positions seems to be that this calendar in some way effects events in the physical world OR is so constructed to hightlight known or
suspected physical effects? Is this correct?
Actually no, I don't believe the calendar affects events in the physical world, nor do I believe it to necessarily pin point "specifically" events
that have or will occur, however I do believe that it could be prophetic in nature. I believe that this calendar is above all else a spiritual tool
which seeks to keep those who live by it attuned to the frequencies of the cosmos.
Now I can understand how that may sound, however, having said that there's a theory which I chose to align myself with that states the calendar
tracks the evolution of consciousness (universally) from seed(big bang) to fruition (2011-2012)- This evolution as it turns out seems to follow a
progression through 9 so called underworlds (each ruled by a different god(s) or energy) where each new phase of evolution is built on the previous
one- (see mayan pyramids) And this progression through each phase occurs on a tun-based frequency (tun, baktuns and so forth upto hablatuns)
One can see a pattern emerge when looking at events that have shaped history as an evolution of consciousness. We are on a path to fruition ( to
becoming one)- and the evolution is drawing to an end- (this is where I believe the whole end of the world thing has come from)
I noted you couldn't come up with a answer to the 3113 & 3115 vs 3114 question, that isn't suprizing not else has ever done that
Nothing to do with not being able to answer your question Hans, check below.
However within a few hundred years of that date the first Pharonic dynasty began, Sumerian cities were on the rise too. The Han were getting
cheeky and in the ME a lot of villages were expanding.
Well yes but in a broader sense there were things that happened that truly signified a shift in consciousness or a shift into a "new age"- the
golden age. Now the mythological start date for the great cycle is 3114 bc- around this time frame is when we see signs of humans beginning to
organize and think much more complexly than before... so what happened:
To name a couple:
-emergence of the first ever organized civilizations/nations ( Mesopotamia(Sumer), Egyptians( unification of upper/lower Egypt))
-emergence of organized writing systems (Egyptian hieroglyphs, Sumerian cuneiform)
-first ever building projects on a massive scale- construction of huge stone pyramids and ziggurats ...
AFAIK nothing particular dramatic or unusual happened when the last Mayan age ended. The third world age ended and this the earth age (4)
Why not take another look.
What does Maya myth say had happened at that time - I believe it was quite dramatic?
Its been suggested that the erection of the Waca Chan or ( the tree of life, the world tree, the sacred tree)
- the ideas I have highlighted here are from Dr Carl Johan Calleman and Ian Lungold. I have chosen to align myself with their ideas
as they seem to shed some light on the truth about our existence. Whether you want to believe it or not our consciousness is on an evolutionary path
and has been for billions of years... the mayan calendar represents a recognition of this evolution.
