The Mayan Calendar and 2012

I have heard several different interpretations of the Mayan prophecies regarding *December 2012.

* Gregorian calendar.

As you probably know, the Mayan Calendar has been credited with predicting everything from the dawning of an age of enlightenment for humanity to complete and utter destruction of the world a we know it today.

Some have said the Mayan's were predicting a solar X class flares similar to the solar super storms of 1859 that overloaded telegraph lines.


I can not think of a more appropriate venue to collect your thoughts, the thoughts of over landers everywhere on planet earth....as you become aware of the differences and similarities of 2012 to other years you have lived or learned about.

Your prophecies welcome too...and any report of events that can be attributed to any Mayan Prophecy are especially welcome.

I will reserve my judgement until reports from all continents begin to flow in, and as they do I will look for common threads among the reports that might indicate a worldwide event or events.

That may or may not happen but in any case the only thing I am worried about is not to be able to go for another nice trip before that happens.

There was a news item a few weeks ago in the UK about this issue; the end of the world forecast for some day in Dec 12. They inferred that the document(s) are interpreted in this way because "pages" are missing, hence it ends in Dec this year.

But, just in case, best get out and ride more.

X class solar flare (CME) due to hit earth Jan 24,2012

NASA has advised that a coronal mass ejection (CME) was observed Sunday describing it as an extreme ultraviolet flash from a hugh eruption on the sun.

Throughout recorded history the sun has had 11 year cycles,currently the sun is in Cycle 24 and a "solar maximum" for Cycle 24 is predicted for 2013.

Sunday's solar flare was rated as an M9 eruption, or just on the verge of being an X class solar flare.

What if anything this has to due with Mayan prophecy is unknown at this time.

Any information, especially of you riding Mexico, Guatemala or other current or former Mayan strongholds, please ask your local Mayan Shaman or Mayan Elder and report findings here.

Thanks

I have the exact same plan, go to the meeting in Viedma and then spend the "end of the world" at the end of the world.

A nice video I watched some time ago about this "end of the world" thing...

Mayans winter 1968

My first motorcycle ride through Yucatan, Mexico was 1968 after the 1968 Mexico City Olympics. I was on my way to the States after working 2 years in Costa Rica.

I spoke with many,many Mayans. Including a Mayan princess who still sang in the native Mayan language. My first hand account of what the Mayans actually said about the future was very much in line with this video.

Real Maya Prediction of 2012 !!! - YouTube

Since 1968 I lived and worked in Mexico for 3 years and each Mayan I met, and there were many, said more or less the same thing.

Why some people have attributed destruction as opposed to enlightenment to the Mayan Prophecy, I do not know, I would like to hear more from you, before deciding what I believe about the Mayans and 2012.

And here is more than you probably want to know about the Maya calendar.

Inhibited blood flow to the extremities

Realmc26, I only post this as a sincere attempt to help you and others who spend far too much time barefoot in locker room showers.

Athletes Foot might indeed be considered "an auspicious incident indicating armageddon" if the flow of blood to the measurably highest part of the anatomy, when the specimen is upright, is as restricted of blood flow as the lowest parts of the anatomy so that the lowest parts of the anatomy, due to lack of oxygen carried in the blood, succumb to the aforementioned disease of Athletes Foot, or Athletes Feet as the case may be.

Simple remedies are: wear looser socks, and/or looser fitting shoes or just remove your foot from your mouth.

My calendar ran out 2011. Think I will get a new one.
From what I have been told the Mayans works the same way. When it reaches the end they gust restart. But think some other tribes are looking for the star brothers to return. Or the big space snakes will come back.

But as fare as end the word we really do not outside help.

Northern Lights or Big Space Snakes?

DLbiten, what a pleasure to hear from you again, and on what a momentous night.

Check out the photos and video of the "northern lights" brought to you by the friendly folks responsible for Coronal Mass Ejections from the Sun:
