Death of Nature

Somewhere on earth. Year 2045.

 

You must view this large on black, please.

 

The Mayan calendar has many divisions of time: months of 20 days, years of 360 days, katun of 7200 days and a baktun of 144,000 days. Their calendar started on 3114-AUG-13 BCE with the birth of Venus. They expected the world to last for exactly 13 baktun cycles. They anticipated the end of the world near the Winter Solstice of 2012.

 

Perhaps 2012 won't bring the end of the world. Hopefully it won't bring the end of nture as we know it either, and this picture will remain just a bad dream.
