As Dec. 21, 2012 Approaches, Scientists Note A Downturn In The Sun's Energy

Author : Frances Woodley

As December 21, 2012, the date marking the end of the Mayan Long Count Calendar Cycle, approaches, scientists are noticing a down turn in the Sun's energy cycle, which they say may last from decades to longer than a century.

Observations of the Sun's diminishing activity were reported at a June 14th meeting of the solar physic's division of the American Academy of Science in Denver, Co.. Scientists submitted three separate studies. One study noted that a jet stream in the interior of the Sun is missing. A second study observed that the power of Sunspots is weakening and the normal 11 year Sunspot cycle is not proceeding towards a maximum as was expected. A third study found that the normal changes in magnetic flux around the Sun's poles are not occurring as they normally do. Overall conference experts concluded that based on the three findings, they believe that that during the next century or longer, we may see a total absence of Sun spots and related Solar phenomena.

Scientists indicated that a 70 year stoppage in the 11 year sunspot cycle occurred in the 15th and 16th century, but the reasons for it and the current cycle slow down are unclear. Scientists also pointed out that during normal cycling, the new solar magnetic field pushes the old field off the solar caps, However, this is not happening and experts are unsure what effect this flux stoppage will have on our Earth's climate.

The sudden and unexpected diminishing of solar activity gives pause for thought to Mayan Long Count calendar cycle experts who have made prophecies of doom about the end days of the cycle. Many authors and seers have predicted that catastrophic events will occur on the Earth at the end of the 5126 year cycle. Some of the most outlandish prophecies painted pictures of excessive Sun spot activity that would wreak havoc on the planet; they can be tossed into the trash. But the recent turn of events obligates scientists to at least take a moment to consider whether the alignment of the Sun with the center of the Milky Way at the time of the Winter Equinox could have anything to do with the unexpected change in Sun Spot activity. Since the Earth and Sun align with the Dark Rift and galactic center at least twice every year, a connection between that alignment and the Sun's slow down does not seem scientifically connected.

Although no experts are yet advancing theories about a scientifically based connection between the current solar changes and the upcoming end of the Mayan calendar cycle, it is interesting if only from an aesthetic perspective, as both cosmic events serve to humble the Sun. The winter equinox is the shortest day in the year, when old Helios makes its tiniest appearance. The journey of the winter solstice Sun across the Dark Rift, a vast cloud of dust that sits between the Sun and the magnetic center of the Milky Way, begins next winter, and was likened in Mayan culture to the kicking of a soccer ball into a goal. What could be more demeaning to the otherwise dominant orb in our own sky than to liken it to a soccer ball being kicked around in a cosmic sports match? What's more, the Dark Rift is called the gateway to the underworld. 30+ years hence, when the Sun emerges from its transition of the Dark Rift, it will, according to Mayan cosmology, be starting a new Sun world. The transition itself is a time when the old Sun is rejuvenated by the natural energy springing from the Dark Rift. Finally, just as this stellar event is about to unfold, the Sun's own natural cyclic activity has begun to diminish.

The Mayans were wise in the ways of the Heavens, far ahead of their times, according to some. And maybe they knew even more than we imagine. This is what concerns people who speculate about the upcoming end of the calendar cycle. It makes us wonder, what unusual events the next year and 1/2 will portend.
