Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

While researching the 2012 end-date of the Maya Calendar, John Major Jenkins decoded the Maya's galactic cosmology. The Maya discovered that the periodic alignment of the Sun with the center of the Milky Way galaxy is the formative influence on human evolution. These alignments also define a series of World Ages. The fourth age ends on December 21, 2012, when an epoch chapter in human history will come to an end. andlt;Iandgt;Maya Cosmogenisis 2012 andlt;/Iandgt;reveals the Maya's insight into the cyclic nature of time, and prepares us for our own cosmogenesis--the birth of a new world.

Synopsis:

Why does the Maya calendar end in 2012? In this groundbreaking book, Jenkins shows that the end date of the Maya long count calendar on December 21, 2012, marks the rare alignment of our solar system with the galactic center. This happens every 26,000 years, and the Maya believed this alignment would greatly accelerate human evolution. 200 illustrations.

Synopsis:

Jenkins brings to light the mysteries of ancient Mesoamerican cosmology, and shows that the end-date of the Maya Long Count calendar on December 21, 2012, marks the rare alignment of our solar system with the Galactic Center.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 171-173) and index.
