Maya, the link to aliens

Maya calendar

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.

      The end date of course assumes we have the beginning date correct, which to me is more significant, as how would anyone know?

      My thoughts are perhaps it is a self fulfilling prophecy as by simple picking a date and allowing the whole World to become aware of it, then if you subscribe to the theory that we create our own reality (and I do) it puts humanity in a position to create a new paradigm.

      It seems denial truly is the most predictable of all human responses as the comments on this page seems to indicate. I prefer to keep an open mind on all subjects and the 2012 end date is no exception.

      However I do know from personal experience that it takes a spiritual and sometimes physical catastrophe to get most humans to have any kind of awakening, whether that be of the educational or spiritual variety.

      Good Hub! As an artist I've often wondered how and why imagination works and why as children it works better, coincidentally (God's way of remaining anonymous) I have never grown up so it is still intact, thankfully!

      Mike - I am sorry to hear you lost your imagination at the age of only 9. From your comments it would appear that this was just a side effect from a total brain failure. Thanks for dropping by.

      5000 years for the sun to orbit its galaxy? Why would the aliens think thats useful information for the maya to have?

      "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."

      First of all, how could you find stars that take 5,126 years to circle the galaxy? Do they have a banner on them? It would take longer trying to calculate how long each star takes to circle its galaxy, then it would just to watch wobbles.

      WTF? LOL You have some "Out There" ideas man. Reminds me of when I was 9 with an imagination.

      Your an idiot, I'm sorry.

      Thanks Rafken,

      Like your blogs and will follow. There are so many questioneds unanswered and the real meaning of 2012 end of clendar will be interesting. I've always been an '11.11' person my whole life- always look at the clock at that time, day and night. I just found out that the exact end of the Maya calendar is 11.11 Dec 21 2012. Intersting!

      I think WE are the children of 'aliens' who were shipwrecked here and that's why looked at the stars so hard.

      Check out:

      According the the USGS - right now should be in a little mini ice age with the earth's precession - which is what the long count in the calender measures .... so maybe good thing have global warming - or we all be freezing!
