Original Message When the Mayan Calendar ends, it will be the end of the last 5125 year cycle when the calendar flips over to or

13 B'ak'Tuns

In the 2001 Lara Croft: Tomb Raider movie, the protagonist Lara Croft had to recover two pieces of a Triangle of Light, which controls time itself, before it falls into the hands of the Illuminati.

Near the beginning of the movie, Croft finds a special clock which has several rotating rings and four compass-like points, very similar to the construction of the circular Mayan Calendar.

While recovering the first piece of the Triangle, Croft tells the antagonist if he puts the timer in the wrong place in the temple, they'll have to wait about another 5,000 years for the planets to be aligned once again.

5,000 Years is very close to the time period of 1 B'ak'tun on the Mayan Calendar.

Near the end of the movie when the Triangle is completed, both Croft and the antagonist are transported to an alternate reality with a large step pyramid with the triangle hovering in mid-air at the peak of the pyramid just like the All Seeing Eye on the Great Seal of the United States.

The step pyramid looks very similar to the step pyramid used by the Mayans to measure time for their long count calendar. The same pyramid is seen earlier in the movie during a flashback sequence where Croft's father is explaining the Triangle of Light.

Once Croft obtains the Triangle of Light, she uses it to visit her deceased father, save her friend from death and attack the antagonist before shooting and destroying the triangle.

Many researchers on the Mayan Calendar believe once the calendar ends, people will have control over what they manifest in their lives as well as the flow of time itself as applied to alternate realities and parallel universes. This seems to be the theme of Lara Croft: Tomb Raider
