In the last known largely unexcavated Maya megacity, archaeologists have uncovered the only known mural adorning an ancient Maya house, a new study says—and it's not just any mural.

In addition to a still vibrant scene of a king and his retinue, the walls are rife with calculations that helped ancient scribes track vast amounts of time. Contrary to the idea the Maya predicted the end of the world in 2012, the markings suggests dates thousands of years beyond that.

Perhaps most important, the otherwise humble chamber offers a rare glimpse into the inner workings of Maya society.


Not that I ever believed the 2012 thing,

Yes, celebrate.

New Maya Mural, Calendars Debunk 2012 Myth

Pictures
news.nationalgeographic.com...


Archaeologist William Saturno scrapes ancient debris from a scribe's painting-filled, roughly 1,200-year-old home in Guatemala. Calculations on the walls refer to dates after December 21, 2012—which has been erroneously called the Maya doomsday—as well as the first known Maya house art, according to a new study.

t’s important to understand that the ancient Maya predicted the world would continue. That was their point. They didn’t predict the end of the world. There would be cycles, new beginnings—but never endings. That’s what’s going on in this room. The numbers on the walls are calculations of when the same cosmic events would happen in the future. The Maya were looking for a guarantee that nothing would change. We keep looking for endings. It’s an entirely different mind-set. I would never have identified this nondescript mound as special. But this discovery implies that special things are everywhere. —William Saturno

The Mayans NEVER said anything about a doomsday event in 2012....

They talked about CHANGE.... big difference. There is no doom. 2012 is about a transition due to cycles that the Mayans kept track of relating to the movements of Earth, the moon, the Sun, Venus and the Pleiades.

So much bad information on 2012 and the Mayans, but I hate to disappoint... the real message of 2012 is about a big transition into a more spiritual based period, moving away from materialistic tendencies.

I really hope you are not sincere, in the above bold'ed statement, if you are I suggest you get a "Check" on your morals and values. Hoping that 7 billion people will die at the end of the year is on par with Hitler.

oh but i am sincere
Immanentize_the_eschaton

In political theory and theology, to immanentize the eschaton means trying to bring about the eschaton (the final, heaven-like stage of history) in the immanent world. It has been used by conservative critics as a pejorative reference to certain utopian projects, such as socialism, Communism and transhumanism.[1] In all these contexts it means "trying to make that which belongs to the afterlife happen here and now (on Earth)" or "trying to create heaven here on Earth."
***
The phrase is cited in the Discordian text Principia Discordia, and appears fifteen times in Robert Anton Wilson and Robert Shea's The Illuminatus! Trilogy, the first of which is the first line of the novel, "It was the year when they finally immanentized the Eschaton."

The phrase is also used in issue four of Warren Ellis' comic, Doktor Sleepless. It appears to be the goal of the main character, Doktor Sleepless, to bring about the end of the world, driven by disappointment over how the future of the past has transpired. Sleepless wants to end the world to keep it from getting worse. The phrase is quoted several times, and can be regarded as the driving force behind the comic. According to the Doktor Sleepless Wiki, this concept is the inspiration for the fictional group blog 'imminent.sea'.

In Ken Macleod's science fiction novel The Stone Canal, one of the chapters is called, 'Another crack at Immanentising the Eschaton'.

PS: the sentiment is mutual
