The discovery of Gunpowder

The discovery of this powder in the 9th century, or around the year 850 AD by a number of chemists China, regarded as the persitiwa then change the face of the world. Powder produced from chemical reactions of several substances such as sulfur (S) or sulfur, charcoal and potassium nitrate are widely used as a murderer by using pistols, rifles, and grenades. This discovery continues to grow continue to grow until the discovery of hydrogen bombs (H) until the discovery of nuclear.


Agora is a term that refers to the open space where people can meet and interact with others. The term first appeared in the era of Ancient Greece, the Agora regarded as forerunners of the first public space.
In the Agora there are commercial activities, antarwarga discussions on various topics related to politics or big ideas such as Plato and Aristotle thought that time. Now the form has a form of early terepesentasi of demokrasii, where all people freely express their opinions.

The Council of Nicea

This is a large gathering of Christian religious leaders held not far from the city of Constantinople in 325 AD.

And the council is the first council in the world to further unite the church greatly influence the development of Christianity.

Outbreaks of plague

This plague has swept Europe in the 14th century. No less than half the European population, or about 75 million dead from plague outbreaks or imposed as the Black Death. The incident then sparked a significant social change, rising wages and workers' trust in the church rocking. In further development, the health of the world thrilled with the emergence of AIDS disease saying no one has found a cure.

The discovery of Sugar

Sugar, or white gold, has changed history. In the early 16th century, the discovery of sugar to encourage mass migration to the African-American slavery began. Now the American population consume an average of 50 kilograms of sugar per year. Sugar and proved an important role as one of the world economy motor.

"The Declaration of Independence"

Since Thomas Jefferson signed the Declaration of Independence (the Declaration of Independence) United in 1776, began a movement in other parts of the world for free or free from the power of the monarchy. The Declaration also inspired the emergence of the idea of rights-human rights.

Galapagos Expedition

Strangeness of the physical appearance of animals in the Galapagos Islands, such as the giant tortoise, has sparked the curiosity of Charles Darwin later wrote in his diary.
Note that the basis of a book titled "The Origin of Species" which marks the birth of the theory of evolution with the famous expression "the survival of the fittest" which describes the gradual change from one species to reach its physical form now through natural selection.

Mystery of Mayan Calendar and Doomsday Prophecy 2012

In the Mayan calendar, predicted that in the 1992-2012 period the earth will be purified, then human civilization will end this now and start entering a new civilization.

In the history of the ancient civilizations of the world, like the Mayans descended from the sky, having a brilliant time, then mysteriously disappeared. Their knowledge of cosmography special and deep, perfect dating system, a complex astronomical calculations and methods of high abstract thinking. Perfection and accuracy of the his calendar makes people wonder!

Mysterious group of people who are living in the south of Mexico right now (Yucatan) Guetemala, northern Belize and western Honduras. Lots pyramid, temples and ancient buildings built by the Maya who still can be found there. Many stones are also sculptures and mysterious writings on the tables they left. The archaeologists believe that the Maya had a great civilization. It can be seen from the legacy like his books, stone tables and the stories are mystical. But unfortunately their books in the library Mayan everything is burned by Spanish soldiers when he attacked after year 1517. Only a few writings on the tables and some calendar system remains confusing until now.

An American historian, Dr. Jose Arguelles devoted himself to studying the civilization of this nation. He explore Mayan prophecy that was built on the foundation that created the calendar that, where such predictions are just like the way the calculation of China, Zhou Yi style. Calendar, an outline describing celestial law cycle and its relation to human change. In the work of Arguelles, The Mayan Factor: Path Beyong Technology, published by Bear & Company in 1973, mentioned in the Mayan calendar system of galaxies noted that our solar system are experiencing 'The Great Cycle' (big cycle) the term of five thousand two hundred years more . Time from 3113 BC to 2012 AD In this great cycle, the solar system and the earth was moving through a galaxy light (Galatic Beam) derived from the galaxy nucleus. Horizontal beam diameter is 5125 years old is the earth. In other words, if the earth through the light and it will take 5125 years.

Maya people believed that all celestial bodies in the galaxy after experiencing a reaction from the rays of the galaxy in this cycle, there will be total change, the Maya call it, aligning the galaxy (Galatic Synchronization). This major cycle is divided into 13 stages, each stage of evolution also have very detailed records. Arguelles in his book that uses lots of diagrams to tell the condition at each stage of evolution. Then each phase was subdivided into 20 days of evolution. Every time it would take 20 years.

From the 20-year period between the years 1992-2012, the world we have entered the final stage of the phase of the Great Cycle, the Mayans considered it an important period before the pre-Galatic Synchronization, they call it: The Earth Generetion Priod (Earth Regeneration Period). During this period the earth will reach a total purification. After that, the earth we will leave the galaxy and the reach of light entering a new phase: alignment of galaxies.

On December 31, 2012 will be the end of the day civilization of mankind this time, the Mayan calendar calculations. After that, mankind will enter a new civilization of the total that have nothing to do with civilization today. On that day, exactly winter arrived, the sun will be joined again with the cross point formed by Ecliptic (path of the sun) with the equator of the total. At that moment, the sun was right in the middle of the system through the galaxy, or in other words galaxies located above the earth, like opening a "Door of Heaven" just for humans.

In the calculations, the Mayans did not mention about what causes this civilization ends. There is little that seems obvious, that the end of the 'day' does not mean "what plagues came over, but signaled to the whole human race will be a transition in the cosmic and spiritual awareness, then go into a new civilization. Year 755 AD, a monk Maya had predicted, after 1991 years later, there will be two important events occurred in the resurrection of human consciousness, and purification of the earth and regenerate.

Began in 1992, the Earth into what the Mayans called 'Earth Regeneration Period ". In this period, the Earth is purified, including the human heart, (this is almost like a prophecy of the North-American Indians against the people today), substances that are not good will be removed, and the substance is good and right will be preserved, eventually aligned with the galaxy (natural universe), this is a mystery outcrop of movement of our galaxy systems are shown by the Mayans.

From the point of view of human knowledge today, it really can not be trusted. Maybe the Mayans were talking about the Milky Way (Milky Way), in which science and technology, we have also reached the solar system, such as the Tionghoa adage that says "summer attack can not explain the ice in winter". Cosmic phenomena exhibited by the Mayan calendar is really valuable from a serious investigation by the human race today.


Since 1992 till 2012, what happened "purification" and how did happen "regeneration" of our planet, not mentioned in detail by the Mayans. In their predictions did not mention anything about what concrete things that give the human spirit to rise from the consciousness and how the earth has a purity, abandoned by them to their grandchildren (perhaps not recorded). Then, the new phenomenon of what we can see since 1992 until now we can associate with the Mayan prediction that civilized?

Observing the great events of this past 10 years (1992-2002), it seems the character of the universe, "Zhen, Shan, Ren, '(true, good, patient) is taught by Master Li Hongzhi, the effect was' purify' the human heart and earth. We found two significant numbers, in the year 1992 is exactly the first time, Li Hongzhi introduced the doctrine openly to the public, in the midst of moral decline severe humanity .. From the year 1992-1999, within this short time, followers of training mind and body cultivation has reached nearly 100 million people in mainland China. Today, this practice has spread even plus 60 countries. Through cultivation continued, this exercise can change the goal of human cells with high energy content and improve the moral character of man as the universe and back to the original identity.

Maybe it was arranged, that the Mayan calendar is not lost and the history of mankind, and should be described with the code by humans now. But he still had to be seen whether humanity is fascinated by the conception that formed after birth can penetrate the boundaries to remind and understand the truth that our knowledge beyond system.
