Mexico Mystique: The Coming Sixth World of Consciousnessby Frank Waters
Synopses & Reviews
In Mexico Mystique Frank Waters draws us deeply into the ancient but still-living myths of Mexico. To reveal their hidden meanings and their powerful symbolism, he brings to bear his gift for intuitive imagination as well as a broad knowledge of anthropology, Jungian psychology, astrology, and Eastern and esoteric religions. He offers a startling interpretation of the Mayan Great Cycle — our present Fifth World — whose beginning has been projected to 3113 B.C., and whose cataclysmic end has been predicted by 2011 A.D.
Book News Annotation:
A study of the work of the great Mexican muralists, Orozco, Rivera, and Siqueiros in the 1930s, their influence upon US artists, the decline in interest in their work after WWII, and the resurrection of the 60s and 70s. Some 240 plates of fair to good quality (only 16 in color). A paper reprint of the 1975 work (Chicago: Sage Books) by the author of the novels, The man who killed the deer and People of the valley, as well as numerous nonfiction studies of Indian culture, myth, and religion. Here he gives a brief summary of the primary cultures of ancient Mesoamerica and then extends the limit of this history into the depths of myths, symbols, and astronomical cycles.
