I am also intrigued by Arguelles' notion that it is fascinating the Maya are called "maya" - when we consider that in Eastern philosophy, this term means the magical and creative power of the Gods in maintaining the illusion of the physical universe.
thats a nice idea, but the name Maya is not one they call themselves, iirc its something to do with the spanish word for May,

This connecting of similar sounding words from different cultures with no connection has been proven to be statistically normal. In most languages for instance there are usually several hundred words that have the same sound and meaning but who's etymologies are completely different. For example Irish Gaelic and Mesopotamian Akkadian have 600 words that sound the same and have the same meaning, but theres no connection between the two cultures at all.
