|Teotihuacan: Shortly after the Olmec civilization vanished, a new civilization arose in the second century BC in the valley of Mexico. This grand civilization would dominate the culture of the valley of Mexico for almost a millennium and stands as the most significant cultural influence throughout the history of Central American civilizations. This civilization was centered around the city of Teotihuacán. At its peak, Teotihuacán was a city of over one hundred thousand people - not only was it the largest city in America, it was one of the largest cities in the ancient world, period. It is located 50 kilometers northeast of Mexico City. And yes... Lee climbed the Pyramid of the Sun! (pant pant)|
|Xochicalco in the State of Morelos, Mexico, is located 38 kms (24 mi.) southwest of Cuernavaca, Xochicalco is one of the most exciting and richest archaeological sites in all Mexico. It was an area developed during the period 800 to 900 A.D., between the destruction of Teotihuacan (Aztec) and the beginning of Tollan (Toltec). Xochicalco was not only the oldest known fortress in Middle America, but also a religious center.
From our standpoint, it also was the center of the observation of the sun and moon (complete with 4 observatories) and helped these people give us a very complete idea of the energies of past and present, and the true meaning of what is coming in 2012. Oddly, these things are not shown or talked about within the education scenario of these ruins to the general public.

Although we were allowed into the observatory alone (something that is not normally done), photos are almost impossible unless they are lit properly (like this one). It shows the light coming in from above, from the sun. This kind of observatory was used for half the year to see the movement of the sun (and moon) as it scribed patterns on the floor. This photo is unrealistic, since to be actually used, the observatory must be totally in the dark, and the sun is a far more focused disc of light (they had filters above... two of them like a telescope). This information let them see solstices, equinox, and many attributes of how the sun moved through the year in relation to the earth. In their minds, however, it was a clock, helping them to know what was coming, based on what had been. Both he Myan and Aztecs did extensive and detailed work with these time calendars, which, when extended, could tell much about history, and what was to come. They also combined it with energy work, and predictions about how the calendars showed the changing energy of the planet. This work is not well know, and is just now being "seen" by those who are starting to "connect the dots" so to speak, and are beginning to correlate what these ancients have said in reference to our own history, and what is being seen by prophets for our future. There is far more here than is recognized as truth. One of the most remarkable things about this archeological site was what was "not" reported... almost nothing in the museums or from the tour guides about the real purpose of this whole complex of pyramids. I think the builders of this complex would laugh if they could attend a lecture of what is being presented today about what this site was all about!|
