December 21st 2007 I was sent to meet the Kakulhaa Mayan Spiritual Guides to witness the first ever, all night Winter Solstice Ceremony at the pyramids of Tikal. The Mayans warned their prophecies were coming true and offered safe harbor. With the possible arrival of Elenin, Niburu, Nemesis, or Planet X, a Mayan doctor offered me maps he said were given to him by the "Great White Brotherhood". The maps are made in honor of Charles H. Hapgood's Crustal Shift Hypothesis. Hapgood claimed that towards the end of the last ice age, around 12,000 years ago, the extensive mass of glacial ice covering the northern continents caused the lithosphere to "slip" over the asthenosphere, moving Antarctica, during a period of at most several centuries, from a position in the middle latitudes to its current location, and at the same time rotating the other continents. Antarctica's movement to the polar region precipitated the development of its ice cap. Similarly, by shifting the northern ice sheets out of the arctic zone, the end of the ice age was facilitated.Support for this theory was given in a forward by Albert Einstein to one of Hapgood's books in 1953: "In a polar region there is continual deposition of ice, which is not symmetrically distributed about the pole. The earth's rotation acts on these unsymmetrically deposited masses, and produces centrifugal momentum that is transmitted to the rigid crust of the earth. The constantly increasing centrifugal momentum produced in this way will, when it has reached a certain point, produce a movement of the earth's crust over the rest of the earth's body..." (Hapgood, 1958, p. 1)
The movie 2012 did not mention the Mayan prophecy on which this date is based other than to show a group visiting the pyramids in Tikal committing suicide. The Mayans perform ceremonies at these sites to show gratitude and gain favor with the universe and their ancestors. I was part of this momentous occasion and would like to present to you, from their own mouths, the Mayan thoughts on the year, 2012.
