The Maya

Shrouded in mystery and coined as a “super race”, the Maya were obsessed with recording the passage of time. Time came to be regarded as the solo lasting coinage for all earthly and celestial transactions. The Mayas viewed the universe as a vast chain of time segments recurring in pre-determined cycles. The great wheel of time ground all earthly events to a fine dust, whose grains germinate the seeds of the next cycle of creation.

Between approximately A.D. 250 and 900, “the Maya created one of the most distinguished civilizations of all antiquity,” writes author George Stuart. Soaring pyramid-temples and imposing palace complexes rose in a network of populous cities that stretched across the mountains and rain forests of Guatemala to the parched plains of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Going back into our deep past, our ancestors created temples to build a link between the Divine and man, the sky and earth. These initial landscape temples were based on intense electromagnetic currents and gravitational frequencies being emitted from specific locations, essentially lifting the veil, opening doorways to greater consciousness as well as uniting the peoples with integrity, ritual and dedication.

The Mayan civilization existed in what is now Central America and Mexico. The Mayas seems to especially like the Yucatan Peninsula, which is now one of the states of Mexico. Back then it was called Yokatlan, which means “place of richness”.

Brilliant art styles and the most complex writing system in the New World marked the age of Maya splendor. Then suddenly – and for reasons now becoming clear – the civilization collapsed.

Five hundred years before the arrival of the Spaniards, the Mayas who built the temples of Tikal, Palenque and Yachilan, abandoned their cities for reasons that continue to mystify scholars. They left behind the majestic shells of what was probably the most advanced civilization to have ever flourished on the American continent. Only fragments of their achievements in mathematics, astronomy and calendric science survived at the time of the first contact with the European invaders. The Mayas were years ahead of their time.

One way the Maya used their astronomical calculations was to observe repeating cycles and make predictions. Many of the predictions recorded in the early codices, or books of knowledge, are now unfolding and are being confirmed by today’s NASA science.
