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 suggest dates thousands of years in the future.

So the Mayans had the same idea as some other main religion that believed in the ending of cycles? That is nice to know. I thought at first it was similar to the Buddhists faith and the wheel of Samsara, but after looking it up it seems that is a cycle for a soul's existence. But I am pretty sure there is a religion with the same ideal of the ending of cycles. Anyone know for sure?
