Then why would they become so obsessed with keeping time? To me, the idea that they just wanted to mark the end of a cycle is pointless. It's like
saying this cycle is over, there's nothing to see here so keep it moving. What? You put so much time and energy into something just for the sake of
doing so. Really? Interesting.
Something is associated with the end of said cycle IMO.
Actually when you think about it, humans seem to be obsessed with all sorts of things through history. All you have to do is look around:
Rock structures built that were used to keep track of certain times of the year (spring and fall equinox, the solstice, etc).
Large structures (and small circles sometimes) made to keep track of stars and planets in the sky.
Huge temples built in tribute and/or worship of deities.
And take a look at the pyramids built by the AE's (okay, I'm going on main stream archeology here, I know there are lots and lots of theories about
who, what and why on the pyramids), huge things that were built to bury a king......
I think we're still obsessed with things (take a look at all the 2012 theories, hehehehe), time is still important to us and our daily lives.
