When he’s resurrected he reappears into his Wholeness through the Rebirth Place in the sky, which is the Dark Rift in the Milky Way. ” —John Major Jenkins, On-Camera Interview in 2012: Science or Superstition 42 THE PRECESSION OF THE EQUINOXES & COSMIC INTERLOPERS Author Graham Hancock similarly believes the ancient Maya looked way into the future to our current epoch.
