Mayan Calendar Prophecies | Part 1: Predictions for 2012 and Beyond is the first part of a four-part series exploring the ancient Maya and their prophecies, predictions and mythology. This book explores the only Mayan books of prophecy in existence which were known as the Chilam Balam. These prophecies were based on the Mayan belief that a 256-year cycle governed the rise and fall of civilizations. They developed this system by looking for patterns in their historical chronicles which documented thousands of years of Mayan history. By carefully analyzing the events that happened in the past they were able to detect a pattern of repeating events that occurred on a regular cycle. Based on an analysis of events that happened in the past they were then able to make predictions about the future.
