    I especially found the new numbers interesting -with the inclusion of 7,000 years into the future. Math is sexy.

      It is a very interesting find although the mayan calender never predicted the end of the world in the first place. It was simply the end of the calender.

      Our calenders end on December 31st every year, the mayan calander just covered many more years and ended on 21st December 2012.

      I don't believe anywhere on the calender did it mention the end of the world.

      I don't know why so many people thought that it did.

        Well doomsday does create a lot of opportunities for Hollywood, merchandising and scams here and there.

    Thanks, Ray.
    Fun stuff!
    Love the murals and am seeing some odd connections between those time measurements and the hexagrams. Part of the reason is selfish, as I have been working for years on a "map" of energy, which is starting looking more like semiotics -a language.

    I also wonder how they measured these time-frames and what it will do to modern astrology, Aquarian Age ideas. The theory just went from 13 to 17, possibly 24 in a flash.

    I, for one, am very relieved.
    I duly sent the link off to my favorite doomsday soothsayer.
    Thank you!

    Maybe archeologists ought to quit digging now that we're ahead.  smile
