The Hard Science of Maya’s Prediction of “Transition”


What you about to read side-steps the woo-woo surrounding a single date of December 21st 2012 in which many believed dramatic events would occur and half the world would be swept away. However – I must say that over the past four or five months a majority of people were better able to put things in perspective and even some came to their realization that Dec. 22nd 23, 24′ and so on…. would probably be no different than the magical date of the 21st.



I believe credit is due to those who helped people better understand Maya’s message. In fact, you should not be surprised to hear that the people most upset about all this Hollywood style propaganda are the Mayan elders themselves. At first the elders really tried to get interested people to understand what the ‘transition’ is meant to be and to provide a way to give some form of tangible pathway. But when venturing into the celestial world of less defined understanding in the principles of quantum physics, dark matter, and ether – one can easily sympathize with the majority of people who become frustrated with not being able to interpret the Mayan message.


Most of us want to know what it looks like – How will I feel? – Will my family and friends notice something different? And the biggest one: “How long will it take, a minute, a day, a month, a year? Did I miss it? Today’s society has adjusted to time of ‘instant resolve’. If you want to understand something…. just Google it. If want to travel to an unknown area….just GPS it. If you need to contact someone….just cell phone it. If they are far away in another country….just Skype it.



So how could the Mayan people have gained such empirical knowledge without the advanced technology of today? The Answer: Because their tribe has been on Earth for several millennia. On ‘millennia’ equals 1,000 years. It is believed the Maya and related indigenous tribes have survived for perhaps 30,000+ years. Long enough to witness “long-term” cycles – then pass this knowledge to the next generation and repeated for over 400 generations. In North America for example – our culture has been established for less than 238 years with the average person learning and experiencing for less than 2 generations. Because of our high technology we have developed a short attention span often speaking of trends lasting one month, one year, and even in the science community the average time span of researched data is only 127 years.


In short – the Mayan calendar identifies the beginning and end of long-term and shorter-term cycles. There is no understanding of a moment in time – as in a single day such as Dec. 21st 2012. The ‘transition’ from one state of being to another “does not” fit the mechanics like flipping on a switch. It is a gradual process of which scientific agencies such as NASA and ESA identify the galactic alignment factually occurred in 2009. However, other researchers believe the ‘transition’ period of this cycle (5th World or 5th Sun) began in 1980 and has an approximate 36 year precession.




The Mayan calendar is made up of three cyclical counts.The first is known as the ‘sacred calendar’ or Tzolk’in, which lasts 260 days and then started over again. The second calendar is known as the Haab’, or secular calendar, which lasts 360 days but did not account for the extra quarter-day it takes the Earth to revolve around the Sun. The final and 3rd calendar is known as the B’ak’tun, or long count calendar, which lasts 144,000 days which is approximately 400 years (using a 360 day seasonal count). Dec. 21st 2012 marked the end of the “13th B’ak’tun” – a period of approximately 5125.36 years. This period is known as the ‘Great Cycle’ or the (World Cycle). It is the time when all period cycles (or sub-cycles) have completed. It is the end of one full ‘transition’ and the beginning of another.



The Mayan message as set by their calendar indicates we are in ‘transition’ from the 4th World into the 5th World (or 5th Sun). They also predicted we are going beyond the 4 known elements of Earth-Wind-Water-Fire and ushering in the ‘New’ Element or ‘5th Element’. This New or 5th Element is “Ether”. The definition of ‘ether’ described in various dictionaries such as Webster and Cambridge: “It is a theoretical substance which occupy all space, postulated to account for the propagation of electromagnetic radiation through the universe.” Mayan prophecy speaks of ‘celestial events’ as mentioned in the Mayan Sacred Books of ‘Chilam Balam’ and ‘Popol Vuh’ to occur at the end of the 4th world and beginning of the 5th world. We are in that time right now.
