Adelasie - Mayans and human evolution

Dear Adelasie,
Yes I believe we are at a pivatol moment in evolution,
not just human evolution but the evolution of all
consciousness. One of my favourite cultures of all
time are the Mayans and I believe they have a vey
important message for us. Firstly, it is tentively
hypothosised that they disappeared due to an
ecological disaster - ie they consumed all their
resources and their society collapsed in the face of
stronger neighbours. Much like the Rapa Nui on Easter
Island. As an ecologists I would love to go to the
Yucatan and do some palynology on sediments in the
area - if it were proven this would have profound
consequneces for the very materialistic world we
westerners live in (on the bus on the way home today I
took note of what people were reading - 5 people were
reading the financial section of the newspaper, a guy
was looking at motorbikes, two ladies were yaking over
a clothes catalogue and one lady was reading Harry

But the second lesson they have left us is even more
pertinent. As a theosophist I would love to know this
inside out and back to front as I believe it holds
that scientific/mathematical/synchronicity secret to
what our current consciousness is going through. I am
in the process of rearranging my books and I can't
find the one I am thinking of which explains what I
mean so eloquently. In the meantime I will relate a
very coarse version of it but when I find the book I
will elaborate. Basically the author believes that we
are going through a one cycle of very many. He relates
a chronological sequence from approximately 5000 years
ago up to that magic date in 2012 of conscious
evolution. I wish I could find this book. I'll leave
it at that for the time being...
