Maya, the link to aliens
The Maya calendar has become more famous as we approach 2012. In the Maya calendar 2012 signifies the end of a "cycle" of time. Some take this to mean the end of the world.
It is now believed that in 2012 we will be in line with the center of our Galaxy, this however, should not have any severe consequences for our planet. What I am more concerned with here, is the start of that cycle, 3114BC.
In 3114BC, to the best of my knowledge, we were not then in line with the center of the Galaxy. So, what then, does the cycle represent. If, these dates have no significance to us, then why should they have any to the Maya.
If, as many believe, that in the past, we had been visited by aliens and the Maya borrowed their calendar, this time cycle would be of significance to the aliens. As it is unlikely that a planet would take 5126 of our years to circle its sun, lets assume that, that is the time for their sun, to circle the galaxy.
In our search for planets that support life forms, it would take forever to randomly study each star.
I therefore suggest, we find the star that takes 5126 years to circle the galaxy. Then look to see if it has any planets that could sustain some form of life.
- Irony of the Maya and 2012
OK, so the Maya did not predict the end of the World but did they really predict something else more ironic?
