Finished will be the 13th Bak'tun, The descent of Bolon Yokte will happen.
Only two actual events are then described for this special date, being darkness and the descent of the god Bolon Yokte. If we are to make any sense of the reference to Bolon Yokte descending, we first need to take a look into the meaning of this particular gods' name and any special associations it has with earthly events.
Bolon Yokte' is rarely mentioned but is thought to represent positive change and period endings. However, other scholars have attributed the deity to destruction, thus corraborating the fatalist doomsday view.
