Questions about the TZOLKIN Calendar
What about the Dream Spell Calendar system by Jose Arguelles ?
problem with the Dreamspell calendar is that Jose tied the Tzolkin
to the Lunar calendar. The Maya never did this. In fact they
never tied any astrological movements to any of their calendars.
They only studied those movements next
to their spiritual calendar.
The Gregorian calendar is a physical calendar. That is it is
based on the 365.25 day rotation of our planet around the sun.
The Tun (360 day) and the Tzolkin (260 day) calendars are not
about any physical motions of planets, galaxies or anything
else. They are a measure of "Creations Intent." The
effects of these intents play out across the entire physical
universe in a loose natural way. Like the migration of animals
or the growth of a plant. The animals are not on a rail and
plants are not scaffoldings. The motions of planetary bodies
are an approximation of the intents and that is all.
Then there is that pesky .25 days per year. 13 X 28 is 364.
Close but no cigar Jose. That means that every 4 years the Dreamspell
system must drop one day from Creation and say that it does
not exist so the calendar is constantly slipping. Erasing a
day from Creation and negating its purpose onto Creation is
arrogant act. No way Jose. When Jose was making up his calendar
shaman who have been keeping the days for the last 3000 years
could not come down from the mountains for fear of being killed
due to a 20 year civil war. So Jose could not confer with them
for the accurate date. He made his best guess based on an astrological
alignment. Being a pioneer in this study he didn't have the
benefit of the most recent discoveries. The important thing
is we have that information now and need to share what has been
" Creation is speeding up and the changes in
all of our lives will be getting faster and faster."
The end date is a mathematical count of the days left from where
we know and can prove we are in the plan of Creation. The Maya
themselves made this -420 day correction 1000 years after they
started their calendar. These corrections are carved at Palenque.
Look at the Tzolkin, after keeping track of all of Creation
for 16.4 billion years why would the cycle end on 4 Ahau instead
of 13 Ahau? This is what the Maya discovered for themselves.
Oct. 28th 2011 is 13 Ahau.
In fact the actual end date is of little consequence as time
and space considerations will be evaporating rapidly as we approach
the calendar's end. See Creation Cycles
for the detailed schedule. I hope this answers some questions.
Carl Calleman's book goes into much
greater detail and I suggest that everyone read it for more
