The Mayan Calendar was created by carefully observing the cosmos for
thousands of years. Within the calendar are cycles. The Mayan Calendar
does not "end." The end of one cycle, is simply the start of a new one.
Western education tricks its subjects into willful ignorance, and intentional
stupidity, by teaching them to ridicule (dismiss) anything the pupil is unfamiliar
with. Without acquiring new knowledge, the brain dies. Seek to understand,
not ridicule, the unfamiliar. Then, you will see what growth is truly about.
