Having produced a documentary about the Maya and their famous calendars, as well as published a related book, I feel I know the topic reasonably well. We certainly covered a massive range of theories and ideas. One area we didn’t cover in our film, however, were speculative links between the Maya and alien races. Our general feeling was that the Maya were being accused of needing alien help to achieve their incredible feats of architecture and astronomy solely because, the theory goes, an indigenous people could not have developed these skills and knowledge alone.
Not everyone agrees with us: a new doc going into production claims to reveal the missing extraterrestrial link that makes sense of the Mayan mysteries and recommends that we move to outer space, just like the Maya (oh, so that’s what happened…). Steve Pond reports for The Wrap:
Mayan writings do not predict the end of the world when the calendar cycle ends in December. But according to the producer of an upcoming documentary about the Central American civilization, they make the sobering prediction that three-quarters of the earth’s population will be wiped out in the ensuing 15 to 20 years.
Given the doomsday alternative, apparently that qualifies as good news.
Those who live, producer Raul Julia-Levy said, will need to quickly colonize outer space, just as he said the Mayans did.
The idea of climbing into a spaceship to avoid a global catastrophe might produce giggles for most of us, but the producer of “Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond” insists it’s no laughing matter.
“This is the most critical time in human history, and mankind is going to have to face the music,” said Julia-Levy, the son of the late actor Raul Julia and producer of “Revelations of the Mayans 2012 and Beyond.”
In an exclusive interview with TheWrap, Julia-Levy claimed that this privately-financed documentary, which begins production this week in Mexico, will drop a series of bombshells that look to the future and draw connections between the Mayans and extra-terrestrials…
