№ 19. 432 Orbits of Jupiter (“Great Cycles”)



This page is part of a series.

The second of these pages includes my rendition of the so-called “Mayan” calendar as 2160 orbits of Jupiters, which is the actual duration of the calendar (five years longer than 13 baktuns of 144,000 days)

The Cycle of Time Number 432 by Joseph E. Mason


Vigesimal or base 20 numeral system

Cycles of Destruction

The explosion of Proto-Saturn at 9500 BC makes it clear that 108 orbits of Jupiter (or 108 x 11.8618 = 1281.0744 years) is the dominant cycle of destruction. I also think this is why the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is primarily a vigesimal or base 20 numeral system. The are twenty 108 orbits of Jupiter cycles of destruction in the calendar (20 x 108 = 2160). Every Great Cycle is 432 orbits of Jupiter (or 432 x 11.8618 = 5124.2976 years). Speaking of years, it took me years of studying the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar until I discovered that the basic unit of measurement used in the calendar is orbits of Jupiter. And then it took me years more to uncover the underlying pattern of cycles of destruction, which are 36, 72, and 108 orbits of Jupiter. Only when all three of these occur in the same year is there a “Great Cycle.” Look carefully at the pattern of 36, 72, and 108 orbits of Jupiter cycles of destruction in the following snippet from the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar page:


This is the last Great Cycle. What you will notice is that 36, 72, and 108 orbits of Jupiter cycles of destruction also align in the middle of each Great Cycle. In other words, instead of there being only five of these alignments as there are five Great Cycles, there are actually ten. Why? Why are there not ten Great Cycles, one every 216 orbits of Jupiter? I have pondered the answer to this question for years now. One would naturally assume that something spectacular, such as a galactic superwave, occurs every 432 orbits of Jupiter, but the data does not support this assumption for the following reasons:

  • BIRTH OF VENUS: I am very confident that the exact middle of the calendar, Great Cycle 2.5, marks the birth of Venus
  • EXPLOSION OF PROTO-SATURN: The explosion of Proto-Saturn occurred at 108-9 (read as nine 108 orbits of Jupiter ago) when there was only an alignment with 36-27 (no 72)

  • GALACTIC SUPERWAVES: The work of Paul A. LaViolette, PhD suggests that the galactic superwaves which apparently destabilized the polar configuration of the planets occurred roughly 216 orbits of Jupiter apart

So what is the answer? Why are there not ten Great Cycles? Well, if you are familiar with my work then you already know I do not like complicated answers. The truth is always simple. I think the designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar were doing exactly what the they claim, marking the end of the last world, which was the Biblical deluge that occurred in 3106 BC. This is exactly what the Old Testament of the Bible does. So does the Yuga calendar of India. I discuss this event below and in detail in The Biblical Deluge (3106 BC). This is primarily what makes 432 a sacred number. 3106 BC was 432 orbits of Jupiter ago.

Great Cycle 5, The Great Tribulation

I am utterly astounded that the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar marked the end of the Modern Maximum. I have no patience for people who say that this calendar is no different than ours in the sense that at the end of a calendar year we just go to the store and buy a new one. The extra five years (the “Great Wayeb”) that must be added to it takes us to the beginning of a “grand solar minimum” that will make the Little Ice Age seem tame. It is going to destroy this world by earthquake, exactly as the Mayans predicted. Not in a day. The world goes on. Nothing can destroy this planet in one day and leave us as a species alive. The calendar is a “you live in the end time” marker for humanity. The December 21, 2018 date arrived at after adding five days (the clue) and five years (the “Great Wayeb”) is what I call the extended end date. I discovered the anti-cipher for this date only days before discovering that the Book of Daniel pointed to the exact same year. That moment is etched into my memory. I know exactly where I was standing at the time. The implication is that whoever wrote the Book of Daniel knew about the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. The extended end date is discussed in The Great Wayeb (“y un poco”) and Its Anti-Cipher and most intriguingly in Leo Tanguma (DIA murals).


Matthew 24:21

This date marks the end of the Mesoamerican (Mayan) Long Count calendar plus five days (the clue) and five years (the “Great Wayeb”). What will happen? The Bible says “for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” The Mayans say this world ends because of earthquakes. It is clear from the Zodiac that the “Age of Aquarius” involves a weakening of the Sun resulting in an unprecedented influx of galactic cosmic rays (GCR) which are directly responsible for the worldwide flooding and increased lightning, seismic, and volcanic activity that is already happening to this planet. The implication is that our Solar system’s binary relationship with Sirius is ultimately responsible for the Sun’s “hibernation” or dormancy at this time during the misnamed “precession of the equinoxes.” There is an inverse relationship between solar output and GCRs. We are headed into uncharted territory.



Great Cycle 4, The Biblical Deluge (often discussed as “3200 BC”)

See “Were the Pyramids Built Before the Flood? (Masoretic Text vs. Original Hebrew)” by Nathan Hoffman (NathanH83) on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI1yRTC6kGE



Great Cycle 3, Earth Assumes a new Solo orbit Around the Sun


Orphaned Earth assumes a new solo orbit around the Sun and the temperature record finally re-stabilizes.










Great Cycle 2.5, The Birth of Venus




Marks the end of the Younger Dryas cooling

Interestingly, Randell Carlson in his YouTube lecture on the “Catastrophe at 12,900 BP” (a favorite subject of his), says “In the aftermath of this catastrophe, is when we find stepping onto the world stage the goddess…the age of the goddess when humans, the descendants of the survivors, are worshipping the Earth in the form of a corpulent pregnant goddess…” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AbnrDbbfyxE) In a different YouTube interview (Joe Rogan Experience #725) with Graham Hancock & Randall Carlson, the date is moved to 12,800 BP, which is (1950 – 12800 =) 10,850 BC.


As with all Mesoamerican cultures, including the Mayans, the Aztecs inherited their calendar system from the original designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. We do not know who these people were. However, the design doubtless dates back to 600-700 BC when, according to Jno Cook in his remarkable work Recovering the Lost World, “Mars caused a disturbance of the Earth’s orbit on February 26th, 747 BC,” changing the length of a year from 360 to 365.25 days. At this time the attention of perhaps some of the most advanced astronomers ever alive on this planet was focused on understanding the new configuration of the planets so familiar to us today. The similarities of the Aztec calendar system to that of the Mayans is simply too great for this to be otherwise.

For anyone familiar the work of David Talbott, that Miley Cyrus tongue sticking out of the face in the MIDDLE of the Aztec Sun (or Calendar) Stone featured on this website represents the planet Venus. This is actually profoundly important because it is an affirmation that at the center of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar (10,793 BC or Great Cycle 2.5) is the birth of Venus. How did I arrive at this conclusion?

  1. It is clear the birth of Venus preceded the explosion of Saturn because Venus is well documented to have been part of the polar configuration.
  2. Nothing less than the explosion of Proto-Saturn can account for the total destruction of 9500 BC
  3. Ergo the birth of Venus preceded the explosion of Proto-Saturn

This logic is so simple and straightforward, the only real question is when did the polar configuration break apart. For the answer to that we go full circle and look to the evidence of the giant skeletons being on or near the surface.





If you look at my post on the basic structure of the so-called “Mayan” long count calendar and read all of my other stuff already posted (a tiny amount of the material I am sitting on), you will see that I am somewhat conflicted about what happened at two of the four main dates in the history of new solar system configuration, which began when the “Proto-Saturn” solar system configuration of the Electric Universe team destabilized and broke apart. Those dates are as follows:

13355 BC
The Proto-Saturn solar system configuration of the Electric universe team is destabilized interrupting a temperature cycle that is over 300,000 years old. Nothing will ever be the same.

10793 BC (Great Cycle 2.5)
BIRTH OF VENUS FROM SATURN (EU) marks the end of the “Younger Dryas cooling”

9512 BC
Saturn FINALLY explodes and orphans Earth.  marks the end of the PLEISTOCENE and start of the Holocene epoch
8231 BC

Orphaned Earth assumes a new solo orbit around the Sun and the temperature record finally re-stabilizes (at least from a historical perspective). Venus and Mars become comets.

The dates themselves are not in question. The agree perfectly with the Greenland ice core temperature records.  What I am not sure about is 9500  versus 10793 BC. One is Saturn exploding and the other is the birth of Venus. This is solvable though based on when the worship of Venus began, which is to say the way it is represented above is probably wrong. In either case, Earth was destroyed because it was bombarded with plasma resulting in a 30 degree tilt of the planet.



The Protruding Tongue (archetype)

But how can we be sure that Proto-Saturn exploded in 9500 BC and rained plasma down on the Earth? Only serious students of David Talbott can answer this question. One of the hundreds of “archetypes” (global patterns) he has discovered buried in mythology is the “Star of chaos: Protruding tongue” for the planet Venus. Venus is at the heart and soul of worldwide mythology. It is also at the center of the Aztec Sun (or Calendar) Stone. As discussed in Birth of Venus (Great Cycle 2.5),  this is a reflection of the fact that the birth of Venus also marks the middle (Great Cycle 2.5) of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.

Great Cycle 2, Second Galactic Superwave

SECOND galactic superwave
The “Proto-Saturn” solar system configuration of the Electric universe team is destabilized
This event interrupts a heartbeat-like temperature cycle that has been stable for well over 300,000 years old. Nothing will ever be the same. Paul LaViolette places this date at 15,870 BP (13,920 BC), which in his book Earth Under Fire he gives as either 13,865 or 13,860 BC.


Great Cycle 1.5, First Galactic Superwave

FIRST galactic superwave
Paul LaViolette has Sagittarius shooting his arrow through the dead center of the Milky Way galaxy at 18,200 BP (16,250 BC). He believes this date or 15,870 BP (13,920 BC) is an either-or proposition, but both dates are within 500 years of a “Great Cycle” which could indicate that the galactic superwaves are recurring every 216 orbits of Jupiter (Plato’s number), which is one half of a “Great Cycle”. This would imply that yet another galactic superwave was responsible for the birth of Venus and possibly for Earth assuming its present orbit around the Sun after the proto-Saturn solar system of the Electric Universe team broke apart.




544 BC exactly 216 Orbits of Jupiter Ago




Many Buddhist traditions believe it was the year when the Buddha reached parinirvana, though the actual year 0 of the Buddhist calendar corresponds to the previous year, 545 BC.   — Wikipedia

After the demise of Lord Buddha in 544 B.C., Six Great Buddhist Councils were convened to preserve the purity of the Tipitaka texts which embody the teaching of Lord Buddha. Sangayana means the congregation of learned monks who collectively revised and purified the Tipitaka texts. The First, Second and Third Great Buddhist Councils were convened in India between 544 B.C. and 308 B.C., and the Tipitaka texts were purified and revised orally.

500 BC: Cast iron is invented in China around this time. The iron plough was likely invented shortly after.

Hundred Schools of Thought

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Hundred Schools of Thought (Chinese: 諸子百家; pinyin: zhūzǐ bǎijiā) were philosophies and schools that flourished from the 6th century to 221 BC, during the Spring and Autumn period and the Warring States period of ancient China.[1]

An era of great cultural and intellectual expansion in China,[2] it was fraught with chaos and bloody battles, but it was also known as the Golden Age of Chinese philosophy because a broad range of thoughts and ideas were developed and discussed freely. This phenomenon has been called the Contention of a Hundred Schools of Thought (百家爭鳴/百家争鸣; bǎijiā zhēngmíng; pai-chia cheng-ming; “hundred schools contend”). The thoughts and ideas discussed and refined during this period have profoundly influenced lifestyles and social consciousness up to the present day in East Asian countries and the East Asian diaspora around the world. The intellectual society of this era was characterized by itinerant scholars, who were often employed by various state rulers as advisers on the methods of government, war, and diplomacy.

From the Mediterranean Sea and Hellespont in the west to the Indus River in the east, Cyrus the Great created the largest empire the world had yet seen.[9] Under his successors, the empire eventually stretched at its maximum extent from parts of the Balkans (BulgariaPaeonia and ThraceMacedonia) and Eastern Europe proper in the west, to the Indus Valley in the east. His regal titles in full were The Great King, King of Persia, King of Anshan, King of Media, King of Babylon, King of Sumer and Akkad, and King of the Four Corners of the World.
