I would say it is somewhat co-incidental, the mayans used a base 20 number system, not a 10 base system like we do. [link to en.wikipedia.org]
Quoting: PhilQPigeon

My take on it is this...

You are right, however, which ever number system you use, a repeating pattern is still a repeating pattern. Its just like everything in the universe.... numbers and mathmatic properties are the basis for everything. So no matter what... there is something significant about his find. I have no idea what... because even our own calander has repetitive properties... but we were too stupid/lazy to keep from having to have a leap year. It won't be long before we find out though...

of course numbers repeat when you arbitrarily pluck out intervals of a thousand. check this out:

2 + 2 = 4

2(1000) + 2(1000) = 4000

it's like there's some kind of PATTERN involved in the concept of a NUMERICAL SYSTEM. What a find!
