The Secret of the Mayan Calendar Was Cracked by Scientists
The secrets behind the mysterious 819-day Mayan calendar and its planetary connections over 45 years are revealed. Researchers shared how expanding the calendar’s length to 20 periods of 819 days uncovers the alignment with periods of planets in our universe.
By taking a 45-year view, the Mayans encoded planetary alignment into the calendar, puzzling modern scholars for years.
Initially perplexing, the 819-day calendar in ancient Mayan culture, found in glyphic texts, was believed to be linked to planetary movements, particularly synodic periods. However, aligning multiple planets within an 819-day span seemed illogical. The breakthrough came when researchers looked at it over 16,380 days, revealing a total of 20 819-day timelines.
The starting point was Mercury, with its 117-day synodic period fitting precisely into 819. Extrapolating the 819 number, 20 cycles accommodate all key planets. For instance, Mars’ 780-day synodic period perfectly matches 21 periods to 16,380 days. Similarly, Venus requires seven periods, Saturn needs 13, and Jupiter 39 to synchronize with the 819-day counts.
The Mayan astronomers designed the 819-day count as a comprehensive calendar system for predicting visible planets’ synodic periods. This broader view unveils the long-elusive connections within the Mayan calendar, providing a fascinating insight into ancient astronomical knowledge.
According to Dr. John Carlson, director of the Center for Archaeoastronomy, the Mayan connection to the infamous 2012 doomsday prediction was a complete misconception from the start. Contrary to popular belief, the Mayan calendar did not end on December 21, 2012, and there were no Mayan prophecies foretelling the end of the world on that date.
The truth is that the Mayan calendar simply marked the beginning of a new planetary period in 2012, not an apocalypse as was widely speculated.
Life without mysteries would undoubtedly be boring. The allure of the unknown, the unexplained, and the enigmatic adds a sense of excitement and wonder to our existence. Mysteries ignite our curiosity, pushing us to explore and discover new realms of knowledge and understanding.
