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. "Maya Cosmogenisis 2012 "reveals the Maya's insight into the cyclic nature of time, and prepares us for our own cosmogenesis--the birth of a new world.

    Review quote
    "Readers will be impressed by Jenkins' scholarly yet interdisciplinary approach. He reaches beyond the confines of the ivory towers to break old paradigms and create several new ones. Primarily, he gives us insights into the nature of time and reality, how the larger cosmic cycles correlate to World Ages, which in turn shows us how to the world periodically renews itself."
    Back cover copy
    MAYA STUDIES / ANTHROPOLOGY Reveals the secrets of the Mayas galactic cosmology 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 a large chapter in human history will come to an end. Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 reveals the Maya's insight into the cyclic nature of time and prepares us for our own cosmogenesis--the birth of a new world. "The extensive research by John Major Jenkins into the Mayan astronomy and mysteries is very impressive indeed, and his book will no doubt become a classic in this field of study. Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 is a must read for all those who feel that there is far more to our past than meets the eye." --Robert G. Bauval, coauthor of The Orion Mystery "In Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, author John Major Jenkins has combined his gift for incisive mythic and symbolic interpretation with rigorous research, to reveal the Mayan calendar as a world cosmology and spiritual philosophy, firmly grounded in precise observations of celestial patterns and rhythms." --Robert Lawlor, author of Sacred Geometry and Voices of the First Day "Meticulously and exhaustively researched, carefully written, this book's patiently arrived at (but never jumped to) highly original conclusions have both the weight and the ring of authority found only in the best scholarship. Unlike other books devoted to decoding the Mayan 'prophecies' it also has a potential happy ending." --John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky JOHN MAJOR JENKINS is a leading independent researcher on ancient Mesoamerican cosmology. He has authored five books on the Maya and has given a presentation to the prestigious Institute of Maya Studies in Miami. In March of 1998, he was invited by the Indigenous Council of the Americas to speak at their conference in Merida, Mexico.
