READER BEWARE: This page is largely a placeholder. Reading LaViolette is not easy.
I believe at the very least LaViolette’s may explain what happened at the end of first and second Great Cycles in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. See № 4. 432 Orbits of Jupiter (“Great Cycles”) for a discussion.
Paul LaViolette is a special person. His book Earth Under Fire may be the key to understanding our solar system’s past. I used to view his work with skepticism believing the Zodiac to be an unreliable timepiece, but now I believe the exact opposite. The Zodiac may be the only reliable timepiece because the hour hand is governed by the Sirius star system.
No matter what happens to our solar system, it will always be inclined in the direction of Sirius. This makes the Zodiac a highly reliable timepiece.
This makes LaViolette’s deep study of the Zodiac invaluable.
