WHAT THE MAYANS DIDN'T KNOW
DARKWING NIGHTMARE 2012
The Mayan civilization produced some of the greatest architects and builders in the history of mankind. The precision assembly of the interlocking parts of their structures from temples to pyramids and town squares is astounding given the technology of their day. More impressive still is the execution of the intended precise placement and geometrical relationships of the structures to each other.
The most intelligent people of our day send men and machines into space. We prove piece by piece the very origins of the universe and our existence. The microscopic biology of life itself is being put together like so many pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. Frankly, I would love to know what the smartest people of our day are really doing.
Is it so hard to believe that the smartest people of their day could produce seemingly advanced architectural works without divine or extraterrestrial intervention? No, not really.
The Mayans were more though. They were great and precise time keepers and astronomers. Their calender has been proven to be so precise that it boggles the mind and challenges super computers to match its exactness. The basis for the calender, their astronomical observations, is even more impressive. The Mayans charted the visible universe as well as any culture has before or since.
Once again, is it so hard to believe they could have done this on their own? Yes and no.
Looking back even deeper into history other, older cultures exhibited some of the same seemingly advanced capabilities as the Mayans. The ancient Egyptians first come to mind. The construction of the pyramids and the city of Giza, along with their geometrical positioning in relation between the structures is arguably even more impressive than similar work done by the Mayans. The Egyptians were also outstanding astronomers. It is a common historical trait.
Could the Mayans have used their astronomical skills to calculate the end of their long count calender to coincide with the galactic alignment? This is a big question.
Meticulous record keeping of celestial positioning could have estimated the advance of their perspective position toward the galactic center. Could they however reconcile their calender to coincide with a 26,000 year cycle based on a repetitive cycle of the galactic alignment? No way!
They could however rationalize their conclusions if they were told about the cycle. So who could give them this information and why?
They would have named the tellers Gods. Advanced extraterrestrial beings would have no problem appearing to be Gods to them. If this were the case why would this information, the cycle of our sun and earth achieving galactic alignment be so important? Advanced visitors would presumably have the ability to transfer wondrous information to them. So why is the galactic alignment the most lasting axiom of the Mayans?
Presumably interstellar or inter-dimentional beings would have the ability to change their perspective position within the galaxy. They could avoid avoid danger if a galactic alignment presented itself and posed a danger. They would also know that the Mayans couldn't avoid that danger. Not unless maybe they had say a thousand years or so to figure it out for themselves. Now without lamenting the useless waste of mans ambitions by waging war, and directing scientific developments toward the consolidation of lands and power. We also have worked toward technology that could prove to be our salvation. Let's apply a new theory to identify the potential danger posed by the galactic alignment.
The alignment certainly can pose an unseen threat. Modern science may be peeking at glimmers of the possibility. The galaxy was of course formed by enormous forces. Physicists will be quick to describe a great number of them. Energy, mass, gravity, velocity, etc. etc. etc.. The results of all forces both known and unknown shaped the eliplically shaped galaxy we inhabit. At the center of the ellipse is a roughly round, "nuclear bulge". The size and shape of the galaxy does not stay the same and experiences continuous subtle changes and variations in the forces contained in it. Our planet being aligned with the center of the galaxy should elicit a gasp. Here is why.
Based on recent science we understand that about 75% of matter in the universe is unseen dark matter. We don't presently know enough about it to determine all of its properties and potential cause and effect. Dark matter may well have stronger effects extending outward from the thinner edges of the elliptical arms of our galaxy. It is much more likely the greatest effect of forces will be closer to the center of the nuclear bulge. The nuclear is there for a reason. As a planet we should not want to be aligned with its center. Dark matter has been observed to have incredible effect not only on galaxies, but on clusters of them. See the link Dark Flow:
also see the link Dark Bang:
Even without the major effects described in dark flow we are in for a bumpy ride. Keep in mind that the dark flow forces have the ability to move and change entire galaxy clusters, and that force emanates somehow from the galaxy. It is probable the forces generated are strongest aligned with the center. We also know that most if not all galaxies have black holes at their center. The black holes may hold the key to the formation and nature of dark matter and dark energy, but we will explore that in a different forum. Being aligned with the galactic changing forces of dark matter is a game changer, and perhaps a game ender.
If only we had seen it coming. We did. If only mankind had a thousand years of technological advances to deal with it. We did. If only greed and war and infighting amongst our species hadn't distracted us from a unified effort. Maybe we could have salvaged 26,000 years of evolutionary advances and existence.
