From humanity's deep past, we encounter numerous ancient stories and tales passed down in nearly ALL cultures (including from the Bible) that talk of a very different Earth and Cosmos than the one we currently live in and see now.
Notwithstanding, there are certain cosmic events in history that are spoken of that apparently recur with startling regularity. Like that of, say, Hailey's Comet, but of a much larger scale and much larger time cycles, (10s to 100s of thousands of years)
Some of these cycles and events through time have either impacted and/or influenced the evolutionary path of our planet, or later, in the time of humankind, right down to affecting the cultural advances and declines of civilization as a whole.
This is an information and discussion board about those ancient stories and their potential meaning and application in cosmic and planetary events affecting us today.
We will be exploring the significance of recent changes in the solar system (global warming for one) and how such conditions may pertain to the stories handed down over these thousands of years. Stories which may predict, or fortell of coming cosmic events and what these ancient stories and more recent scientific findings may mean for us today.
In the dark recesses of human history, the Mayan calendar began as 0.0.0.0.0 Ahau, 8 Cumku which is Aug, 11th, 3113 B.C.
Interestingly, it is noted to end Dec 21, 2012 A.D. (220.127.116.11.0) some 5125 years later.
But why those dates?
It does not signify the end of the world, as some suggest, but the end of a great cycle. In this case, a number of cycles AND subcycles. All convening in perhaps one great event, galactic, planetary and human...
"Fiction has to be plausible, reality is under no such restraint."
"...with you and other peoples again and again life has only recently been enriched with letters and all the other necessaries of civilization when once more, after the usual period of years, the torrents of heaven sweep down like a pestilence leaving only the rude and unlettered among you. And so you start again like children, knowing nothing of what existed in ancient times, here or in your own country."
