The Mayans Were Right. The Poles Are Shifting.Submitted by chris cudnoski on Sun, 12/30/2012 - 18:09
A lot gets lost in translation.
The Mayans never got around to inventing wheeled vehicles because they were too busy focusing on the important things in life like society and human behavior. Because they studied the cycles, or circles, of life, they knew very well that the cycle of Liberty, Decadence, Tyranny never stopped repeating. So it wasn't very hard for them to predict that giant upheavals in the power structure would occur periodically, and that tyranny would have to increase in kind if it was to survive, perhaps explaining why they did such fearful things as human sacrifice.
A big clue to the fact that they weren't necessarily predicting a single day on which a massive shift would occur is the date itself, December 21. This happens to be the date of the winter solstice every year which the Mayans certainly knew and could easily project out for millennia. It's the day that the earth is closest to the sun. It's not just one of 4 high days of the year for sun worshippers, it's the highest day. So the odds that this date would also turn out to be the date of the big 'End of Age' day is one in 365 - a fairly unlikely occurrence if it was just a date the universe picked at random, which they could claim to have discovered by other means.
No, it's not a very good date to use at all if your trying to sell yourselves as prophets. Too unlikely. Too big of a coincidence.
What I believe the Mayans predicted, and quite accurately, is a shift in human consciousness that would take place over a brief period, with the solstice being a potential focal point for this shift either in actuality or at the least symbolically.
In honor of the philosophical leader of the current worldwide intellectual revolution I hereby dub 2013 to be the year of the Mayan Paul Shift.
