Maya Prophecy

The August 11, 1999 there was a solar eclipse and alignment of the planets known as the Cosmic Cross. From that date on the forces of nature will unleash a greater number of cataclysms. The sun, aligned in the center of the galaxy, will receive a beam of light that will shine throughout the universe and synchronize all the planets. During 20 years is the time of "no time".

This will increase the intensity of the sun causes, changes in solar flares, and magnetic fields, causing a change in the angle of rotation of the earth.

December 21, 2012, the end of days.

The Maya had an obsession with time and cycles of the universe, they were sky watchers and natural phenomena observers. Their culture was agricultural, so they depended on the seasons elements, and consecutive repetition of days, in day and night.

They developed a very precise calendar that served for several purposes, a very important was to satisfy the desire of trace the divine origin of their family, and the time of origin of their ancestors at the beginning of time, in creating the cosmos. That date is, 4 Ahau 8 Cumku of Ahab.

In their calendar this time was called the Long Count, which begins on 13 August of the year 3111 BC and ends on December 21, 2012 AD (the end of days) closing this Great Cycle which comprises 5.125 years. "If there was a beginning, there must be an end of time."

There are two Mayan calendars, the ritual calendar called TZOLKIN the "count of days" which has 260 days, in addition to the solar calendar called Haab, which has 365 days

Similarly, the ball game symbolizes the movement of the stars, the Sun, the Moon and Venus, which appear and disappear on the horizon.


Pok Ta Pok

Pok Ta PoK The name comes from Yucatec Maya means "jump, jump, jump" as onomatopoeic, mimicking the sounds it makes the ball bounce. However, to understand the origin of the game we go back to the name in Nahuatl "ULAMALIZTLI" that comes from the root "ULLI", "Ollie" (esp. rubber) which is the name of the material that makes up the ball. This material is naturally very elastic and malleable, and he produced the balls for the game. The root "OLLI" "ULE" is the same semantically to the word, "Ollin" which means "movement" and denotes the metaphysical principle of governing philosophies and pre-Hispanic thoughts with common feature of all cultures who inhabited Mesoamerica.

The early Pre-classic period , more than 3000 years, makes its final appearance of the game between the Olmec mother culture of Mesoamerica. (FIG. Olmeca Player.) and other Preclassic cultures and training as Tlatilco Huasteca (FIG . Totonaca Player.) and its subsequent development in Mayan cultures, Mixtec, Zapotec, Totonac, Teotihuacan, to the survival or survival between the inhabitants of Sinaloa,.In essence the same game has been played without interruption for more 3500 years.

"Ollin" is the union of opposites, opposing forces: light and night, heat and cold, it's continuous movement, symbolized by the sphere of "ULE" motion content in itself.

In the beginning of times the gods played POK TA POK to put the universe in motion.

The Sun is the ball moving in the sky and has its opposite the Moon and the Stars, with which engages in a battle, a game in the divine court.

The pitch of the ball game is a mirror of this cosmic play and is done every day.
