What the Maya Really Meant

Anyone who has followed this blog for a while will be wondering “if it is NOT all these other theories, then what the heck IS it?” Well, perhaps it is time…

Today is the 21st of December, 2009. According to the Maya there are only three years left until THE Big Day.

Trying to explain what the Maya meant for this day seems almost anti-climactic to me. After all, its not as if they tried hiding their meaning. No, they put it right out there in the open for everyone to see it clearly.

Repeatedly, they spoke of the previous Sun Ages, each ending with a cataclysm INVOLVING the Sun. When you mention catastrophe, people immediately think earthquakes, tidal waves, meteor impacts, or the planet tilting. The Maya mention the earthquakes as part of what will happen but there is not any extra-Solar boogeymen to watch out for. It is a cataclysm involving the Sun.

They did not speak of the “Ages of the World” or “world ages” of any sort – like most writers on the subject mis translate the terminology. It is Sun Ages being referred to and each successive Sun has different qualities, different powers, and a different name. But we scratch our heads and say “how can there be more than one Sun?”

Probably the reason no one has noticed what the Maya said concerning the End-Date is that it conflicts with a mythology we hold in high esteem. Mythology? you ask. We don’t believe in any stinking mythology!

Well, yes, we do. The mythology is called “science”. Not the science that measures the quantities of this that and the other, not the science that put us on the moon, not the science that gives us ever bigger and better weaponry. No, I’m talking about the science that views a small segment on the universal time-scale and says it has always been this way; as one cleverly put it, for “billions and billions” of years. It is a pleasant theory that has become the bedrock of the scientific world. Yet it is nothing more than a theory of uniformity – in other words: myth.

And that is the myth that clouds our understanding of the Mayan End-Date.

And the cataclysm the Maya spoke of concerning the Sun is nothing more than the Sun going out. (And this is probably why no one has yet evolved this theory: it is impossible!)

But, you ask, how can the Sun go out?!?! (But that is an exercise we can go through later.)

Suffice it to say that there is no great mystery concerning the End-Date. The Maya have told us again and again. Repeatedly they called them “Sun Ages” and we translated it into “World Ages”. They mentioned the Sun’s fire dying out and we took it to be a mythology about a drought or something too mundane to bother with.

We have simply chosen to NOT believe them.

It has led to an immense amount of speculation on subjects that did not need to be brought to this table. The time is short and there is still more understanding needed.

I am sure you are wondering how the Sun could possibly go out.
