From those early years back then, it is evident there was a schedule they used. In those early years people had full knowledge of the importance of having a schedule although they used different ones from those being used today. The earliest mathematicians, astronomers and other scientists used the Maya system to calculate time periods.
It was first ever used in the 6th Century BC. In the earlier forms it was only used to calculate time in periods and was only used in understanding if one occasion was either before or after the other. This made it possible for them to understand the linear conception of time as past, present and the future. The Mayan was later improved to one of the most complete systems of those days, and it was able to calculate long periods of time referred to as long count and another form to calculate short periods known as short count.
They choose certain past days which would form the base starting point of the schedule formation. There are a few reasons attached to the reason why the scientists and historians were excited by development of the Mayan. Due to the interest the Mayan shows in the lunar cycles the astronomers scientists have studied it many times. It was true as there was supplementary form that was used, mainly referred to the Venus cycle that proved that they could calculate Venus cycle very accurately. This accuracy was in fact due to observations from the early astronomers and this is of great help to the modern astronomers. The correlation form was used along with the beliefs they had.

The Historians are mainly interested in Mayan due to the reason that evidence proofs there is relationship between the supplementary cycles and the animals and food. The Mayan demonstrated the significance of the people’s culture and believe. The people’s life was mainly based on how they observed their culture.

It is evident that civilization has been existence for a long period of time, gauging this from the information obtained from Mayan and how it was being used. By analyzing the information it enlightens us there has been full knowledge of the past, present and future and this is what would be used in setting the starting point for basing their dates. If the method they used for calculating dates and periods failed they had supplementary forms, this shows that the people back then were very intelligent. This was a great step so as to ensure accuracy in calculating forms based on their scientific knowledge acquired in astronomy. The people based their whole life on these periods and intervals which all demonstrates the people civilization. There has been tremendous improvement in the way people base their schedules today.
