PAGE STATUS: My work on the Maya Long Count calendar used to figure prominently on this website and required five pages until time taught me no one gave a damn about this subject, what I consider to be the greatest intellectual work of all time. So I rather abruptly stopped working on this material years ago, and since then it has been kicked around endlessly. As a result, it is a total mess. Let me just say I admire anyone who attempts to study this material. What I call the Great Wayeb is central to understanding what is happening with the year in the Tomorrowland movie.
LAST UPDATE: September 3, 2020
Astronomical Knowledge Before the Deluge
In the Deluge a civilization was destroyed the real value of which is incalculable. Hebrew tradition estimates that the population of the ante-diluvian world “amounted to millions.” Adam is said to have invented seventy languages; Cain, his son, built cities and monuments and ruled over kings. They were representatives of generations. According to Hebrew legends, the Deluge and its time had already been predicted by Enoch, and even more ancient generations were said to have erected tablets with calendric and astronomical calculations predicting the catastrophe.

The Maya Long Count
I worked for over five years developing this table. It is the centerpiece of my work, though the interpretation of what has happened in the past (the furthest right-hand column) is ongoing.
Please note the following:
- Great Cycles: Great Cycles occur every 432 orbits of Jupiter
- Jose Solar Cycles: I cannot help but notice that are only three times when an even number of Jose solar cycles coincides with a Great Cycle, once at the start of the calendar 25,621.488 years ago, once in the middle of the calendar (Great Cycle 3.5) in 10,793 BC and this year, 2018 AD.
If the Mesoamerican (grossly misnamed “Mayan”) Long Count calendar is everything people thought it was prior to December 21, 2012, do you really believe the powers-that-be would have ever allowed this knowledge to be disseminated to the masses? That would be like throwing the key to Fort Knox on the ground in the middle of Times Square. This is some of the most guarded information in the history of mankind.
December 21, 2012
People are so gullible. You can be sure that if December 21, 2012 were the actual end date, you would have never heard about it. Such information about the end time has never been in the public domain. Do you remember the feeling that “maybe, just maybe, there’s something to this Mayan calendar thing”? Well, you’re not alone. The 400th anniversary of the Authorized King James Version of The Holy Bible was the year before 2012. That was not a coincidence, I assure you. Have you ever heard the expression “crying wolf”?
The Boy Who Cried Wolf is one of Aesop’s Fables … From it is derived the English idiom “to cry wolf”, defined as “to give a false alarm” in Brewer’s Dictionary of Phrase and Fable and glossed by the Oxford English Dictionary as meaning to make false claims, with the result that subsequent true claims are disbelieved. — Wikipedia
December 21, 2012 was always intended to be the biggest “crying wolf” incident in recorded history.
The problem is twofold. The first is something called the “GMT correlation date” (see below). It is accurate. The problem is that 13 Baktuns is the length of a Great Cycle. It is not a date any more than saying “2012” is a date. The month and day are missing. It is more or less the same with the Maya Long Count calendar. And there is a serious year zero problem with 2012.
The actual “end date” was December 16, 2013.
The other problem is much more subtle. The units of measurement used in the design of the Long Count calendar were deliberately obfuscated thousands of years ago when the calendar was created. This results in something I have called “The Great Wayeb” which effectively adds five years to one of the two end dates, either December 21, 2012 or the actual end date of December 16, 2013, which I cannot say for sure, at least not in public. To have not done so, to have openly advertised the actual units of measurement used in the design of the calendar, would be the equivalent of scrolling their most cherished secret all over the realm like so much graffiti.
I know. Right now you are thinking to yourself, but nothing happened on any of these dates. We’re all still here. So what does it matter? You are not alone in this sentiment. Some of the most wealthiest and powerful people on the planet, the 144,000 I call them, were wondering the same thing. Something did happen. Something more profound than you can ever imagine. In June of 2011, Walt Disney announced a new movie with the working title 1952. Then on a momentous day when all the rest of the world was laughing off December 21, 2012, they announced the title of the new movie as Tomorrowland. The date was January 22, 2013. Ever since that date, those in the know have studied this movie as if their lives depended on it. You should, too. I have been studying the Tomorrowland movie phenomena for well over a year now and sense that I am nowhere near plummeting its depth, which is why I say over and over again on this website,
For someone who senses we really are living in the end times, the Tomorrowland movie is more important the The Book of Daniel in the Old Testament and The Revelation in the New Testament combined.
Specific knowledge of the end times (what is going to happen and precisely when) is and always has been some of the most guarded information in the history of mankind. Discovering the Maya Long Count Calendar obfuscation and its anti-cipher was one of the most magical moments in my entire life. I have been endeavoring to bring this knowledge to the public ever since. But alas the “crying wolf” ruse worked.
Even attempting to discuss the significance of this ancient calendar which once captivated the imagination of an entire world is now passé and invites ridicule, if not disdain or utter contempt.
Everyone is so sure that the whole Mayan calendar thing is sheer folly that broaching this subject is akin to urinating into the wind in the middle of Times Square on public television while reciting poetry in a very loud voice and tap dancing. In short, to discuss the Maya Long Count calendar is to make of yourself into a freak show
Hence your initial, knee-jerk reaction will be that I have conjured up the Great Wayeb. I both know and understand this because your mind has been trained to think in this way. I do not judge you, but I do most earnestly suggest you look at the entirety of this website. I am not in the business of misleading people. Rather what I have come to believe and to study in depth is that the general public is in a deep hypnotic state. I have developed this thought to the point that it is now one of my top-level menu items.
The designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar really were predicting the end of our world by earthquake, or what we would call Mega Earthquakes. And they were highly intelligent. To be dismissive towards their work because the world did not end on December 21, 2012 is the height of ignorance. The general public is surer than ever that the world will continue on its merry way indefinitely. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is the single greatest intellectual achievement of mankind since the end of the last world.
It is indeed everything people thought it was prior to December 21, 2012. Only now the people have fallen asleep to its reality. This was by design.
But stop and think for a minute. The actual end date of December 16, 2013 almost perfectly marks the middle of the Solar Cycle 24 “double peak” which marked the end of the Modern Maximum.
The Modern (Grand) Maximum involved some of the most intense sunspot activity in 10,000 years. This is a subject of which I am keenly aware because it peaked in April of 1958, the month before I was born.
Now how did they do that? If you are asking yourself, what makes you think this is the end of the Modern (Grand) Maximum, I decline to answer because I think it should be obvious to anyone studying the problem. Plus the ranks of those who are in consensus on this critical point are swelling with each passing day.
How could the designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar have marked the end of the Modern (Grand) Maximum thousands of years in advance? When I think of this fact, the “Mayan calendar” skeptics pale in significance.
This in itself is a remarkable achievement, but something much more spectacular is about to happen, something “wonderful” as Stanley Kubrick said in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. The end of this calendar is also coordinate with the September 23, 2017 retrograde motion of Jupiter as spoken of in Revelation 12:1-2, the woman travailing in birth. Both of these are important end times markers.
Meanwhile, it must be said that the progeny of Jove, who have siphoned off trillions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to build the extensive underground tunnel systems in Denver, Colorado and throughout the Western United States of America (discussed in Virgil’s “Vault Profound” in Denver, Colorado), wonderfully succeeded in lulling us back to sleep. Wolf! Wolf! It’s time for some more CNN.
The “Race” of Siddhas in America
See also № 43. Elongated Skulls
The Mayans did not design this calendar. Neither did the Olmecs. It is the single greatest intellectual achievement of mankind since the end of the last world. The race of Siddhas (spiritual adepts) who designed it was celebrated the world over. It is indeed everything people thought it was prior to December 21, 2012.
I believe that at least some parts of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar are relics of the people who lived on earth before the birth of Venus in 9500 BC when the planet was almost completely destroyed.
How likely is it that Central and South America were the intellectual center of the ancient world? If the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is what I claim it to be, then this must of necessity be true.
Where exactly was the “great city” referred to in the following quote? And who are the “race of Siddhas“?
The Surya Siddhanta is the oldest surviving astronomical text in the Indian tradition. Some Western scholars date it to perhaps the fifth or sixth centuries A.D., though the text itself claims to represent a tradition much, much older. It explains that the earth is shaped like a ball, and states that at the very opposite side of the planet from India is a great city where the sun is rising at the same time it sets in India. In this city, the Surya Siddhanta claims, lives a race of siddhas, or advanced spiritual adepts. If you trace the globe of the earth around to the exact opposite side of India, you’ll find Mexico. Is it possible that the ancient Indians were well aware of the great sages/astronomers of Central America many centuries before Columbus discovered America?- the Mayans or Incas.
–Stephen Knapp, 108: The Significance of the Number, retrieved on 2 January 2014 [bold-red emphasis added]
Knapp’s description of these people as a “race of siddhas” deserves special attention. One possibility I do not think can be entirely discarded is that this is a reference to the elongated skulls in South America. Whoever they were, it is clear that Central and South America were not intellectual backwaters.
The GMT Correlation Date
See also: Exploring the 584286 Correlation between the Maya and European Calendars (Another, more technical name for the GMT correlation date is the 584283 correlation.)

It would seem as if everything hinges on the GMT correlation date being correct.
Or does it?
The GMT correlation date is the result of many years of scholarly work to determine the Gregorian calendar date that corresponds to the first day of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Once this date is determined, then it is possible to discuss the “Mayan” calendar in terms of the English days, months, and years with which everyone is familiar. In fact, correlation dates are best thought of as an effort to translate a calendar system into another language. This subject has been exhaustively researched. Nowadays, the GMT correlation date is almost universally excepted as the best possible “translation.” Other correlation dates that have been proposed in the past are shown in the table to the left.
Now image if the GMT correlation date is wrong. The first thing you may think is that December 21, 2012 was the wrong end date. Well it was, but that is a different subject discussed on the № 19. End Date and Great Wayeb page. I will touch on it briefly here. December 21, 2018 wasn’t the wrong end date because of the GMT correlation date. It was wrong end date because no one understand the mechanics of the calendar discussed in the next section.
Maintenance Note: The following discussion is copied from the original at December 16, 2013 (the end date) versus 13 Baktuns (a Great Cycle) and included more or less verbatim in Why 2017 instead of 2018? Was 2017 the “Great Mistake”.
While it requires a rudimentary understanding of the design of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, to say that December 21, 2012 (the end of 13 baktuns) is the end of the calendar is roughly equivalent of saying “2012” is a date. It is not. The month and day are missing. It is more or less the same with the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. Only the largest cog finished turning on December 21, 2012. But the design of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar involves three cogs. The other two cogs, more or less equivalent to our month and day, must continue turning until they too come to an end. When they do, the date is December 16, 2013.
The difference between December 21, 2012 and December 16, 2013 is comparable to saying 1999 was the end date of the twentieth century or second millennium, whereas it would be much more accurate to say that December 31, 1999 was the end. What does “1999” mean to someone trying to figure out on what day the twentieth century or second millennium ends? It ended December 31, 1999. Do you see the difference? The exact same thing happened with the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar.
Despite what you have been told, the end of the fifth Great Cycle really does mark the end of the Fifth World in which we now live (as discussed in the The Prophecy of Chilam Balam section of the № 19. End Date and Great Wayeb page).
But the Long Count is an “end times marker.” It s not precise. Like September 23, 2017, it says to us “you are living in the end time.”
The world did not end on September 23, 2017 and it did not end on December 13, 2013 either, which was the actual end date. Nor will it end on December 16, 2018, which is the “extended” end date that was obfuscated by the designers of the calendar thousands of years ago. Think of these “end times markers” as pointing when you are giving directions to someone. You point and say “It’s over there” or “It’s down this road.” The pointing is not exact, and neither is the Long Count calendar. It’s as close as they could get, and “they” were highly intelligent beings.
This raises a question, though. If the progeny of Jove are so intent on luring us to sleep so that we do not notice all of the painfully obvious signs that we really are living in the end times, why not just assure that the correlation date is wrong? If the GMT correlation date is wrong, the actual end of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar may be years into the future. Look at the correlation date for Weitzel/Vollemaere in the table above. If those guys are right, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar does not end for another 500 plus years from now. It’s enough to discourage any further thought on the subject.
If we live in an entirely fabricated reality, how can we know the GMT correlation date is not a subterfuge, especially when you consider that it is largely based on dates recorded by Diego de Landa, a Jesuit?
This is an important question because if the GMT correlation date is wrong, it does not matter how well you understand the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. All of your work is effectively based on a bad assumption.
I live with this thought every day. What if the GMT correlation date is wrong? It’s a scary thought, but I am confident that the date is correct. Quite frankly, on the subject of the correlation date, my thought borders on the mystical. What I know, or rather believe, is that secret societies throughout the ages do not tamper with knowledge of the end time that could possibly result in a total loss of that knowledge. Hence, England and the United States of American refused to follow the metric system. I think deliberately getting the correlation date wrong would have been on a par with switching to the metric system. They just would not do it. As can be readily seen by reading the A Very Public Countdown to 2017 section on the № 23. 2017 versus 2018 page, it is abundantly clear the progeny of Jove knew December 21, 2012 was a meaningless date. So they used it to cry wolf. Now that is something they would do.
But beyond this “sixth sense” that the progeny of Jove would not tamper with the correlation date, there is a reasonable amount of proof that it is correct. September 23, 2017 is one such proof. So is the fact that the King James version of the Holy Bible celebrated its 400 year anniversary in 2011, the year before the supposed end date of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. In fact, everything said in the A Very Public Countdown to 2017 section on the № 23. 2017 versus 2018 page, such as the fact that the Freemasons were founded in 1717, two seventeens, or 2017. And for me, and here I do not care what other think because I felt the same telepathic sense then as I felt when I first encountered ET, Comet ISON‘s perfect .51 AU isosceles triangle with Venus and Earth on December 16, 2013 was a confirmation unlike anything else. You may think I spill my guts all the time on these pages, but I actually do hold back some things. One is that I am no little freaked out that Comet 46P/Wirtanen is the first major comet to come close to earth since comet ISON. Comet ISON was on the day the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar ended. Comet 46P/Wirtanen is on the obfuscated end date. That doesn’t mean I think it is going to impact. It just weirds me out a little.
And beyond all of this rational thinking, there are the less tangible proofs that we are in fact in the end times such as those discussed on the № 15. Cultural Implosion and Matthew 24:15-18 (the last sign before the end) pages. All of these are very real to me, too. I really do believe the only people who can stomach my work must share something in common with me, the deep, abiding sense that something is wrong. That this charade of normalcy is being foisted upon us. It is a brotherhood in that sense. And such people will understand what I am saying now about the question of the GMT correlation date being correct or not.
But let me return to where I began. The actual end date of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar on December 16, 2013, almost perfectly marked the end of the Modern Maximum. Wow! If that does get your attention, then I don’t know why you are even reading my stuff. I mean this calendar was designed thousands of years ago. What did they know that we do not? How could they have possibly known the month of the last solar cycle maximum before the end of the sun’s once in a 10,000 year CME show? Whatever knowledge they possessed was highly accurate. And don’t think for a minute that knowledge was lost. Someone named that very same solar cycle “Solar Cycle 24” and the did so a few hundred years ago. The GMT correlation date is correct. The progeny of Jove really do not worry too much about us.
Understanding the Mechanics of the Long Count
The Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is best thought of as a series of three interlocking gears (or cogs) all of which must advance to their end point before a major calendar period can be said to have ended.
(image from David Pratt’s “2012 and the Mayan Calendar: facts and fantasies“)
In a discussion of “How to Set the Date” in How Does the Mayan Calendar Work?, the author states
A date in the Maya calendar is specified by its position in both the Tzolkin and the Haab calendars which aligns the Sacred Round with the Vague Year creating the joint cycle called the Calendar Round, represented by two wheels rotating in different directions.
The Zero Year Problem
The end date is not understood in large part because it was deliberately obfuscated at its inception, when the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar was designed thousands of years ago. Living shamans have publically stated that they always knew the Long Count calendar ended in 2012 “y un poco” (and a little [more time]), only none of them knew how long “y un poco” was. The truth is that it ended on December 16, 2013 “y un poco”
The Great Wayeb of Five Years
The solstices and equinoxes were unimaginably important to the ancients. So why end the most important calendar of all time five days before the Winter Solstice? This is indeed a very important question. It practically cries out, “Add five!.” At the time the calendar was designed, the end time was some two and a half millennia into the future. Would we remember the “unlucky five days?” Would we understand the clue? Certainly we would know from their architecture the important of the equinoxes and solstices. This is what makes the end date of December 16, 2013 so appropriate as a clue to add five years also. The obfuscation of the actual end date was at once necessary (because even in their won time this was some of the most guarded information in the history of mankind), but at the same time threatened the possibility that their message would be lost in time. Something more was needed, some way of letting us know for sure the intended message was to add five years to the end date. This is what I call the anti-cipher.
The Five Unlucky Days
Morning the loss of their perfect 360 day year and not wanting to really recognize that the orbital period of Earth had changed, many ancient people simply added “five unlucky days” to the end of their existing 360 day calendars. The Mayans referred to these “unlucky five days” as the Wayeb. Over 2,000 years later, these “five unlucky days” are still an important part of Mayan culture.
The Haab’ was made up of eighteen months of twenty days each plus a period of five days (“nameless days”) at the end of the year known as Wayeb’ (or Uayeb in 16th-century orthography). The five days of Wayeb’ were thought to be a dangerous time. Foster (2002) writes, “During Wayeb, portals between the mortal realm and the Underworld dissolved. No boundaries prevented the ill-intending deities from causing disasters.” To ward off these evil spirits, the Maya had customs and rituals they practiced during Wayeb’. For example, people avoided leaving their houses and washing or combing their hair.
So you see the practice of adding five whatever to calendars is thousands of years old. The “Great Wayeb” adds five years to the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. It gave us the time to discover the truth herein disclosed.
There are living Mayan shamen who say the end of the Long Count calendar was always the end date “y un poco” (“and a little”). They just don’t know what a little means. This is where knowing the actual end date of December 16, 2013 is critically important. It was a clue the designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar left behind. They lived not long after Mars bumped up against our magnetosphere and changed Earth’s orbital period.
The Importance of the No. 5 to the Design of the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar
In this image borrowed from Did Extraterrestrials Create the Maya Calendar?, the 20 day glyphs in the outermost circle of the Aztec calendar stone are divided into fifths. I had wanted to make this image myself before stumbling across this one. I am not very talented with image processing, so this one will have to do. The only thing I would change was to put the points of the star on even day boundaries. The resulting four “days” in each of the five section correspond to the four 108 cycles of Jupiter in each Great Cycle of 432 orbits of Jupiter.
YUGI CALENDAR EMPHASIZES DIVISION BY FOUR ALSO
And is it not at least possible that the fact that there are five Great Cycles is yet another “hint” that the number five is profoundly important to understanding the design of the calendar. This is also evident in the Mayan counting system in which five is represented bar a bar instead of five dots.
What is an Anti-Cipher?
A cipher is generally defined as “a secret or disguised way of writing; a code.” The Enigma machine developed by the Germans in WWII is a classic example of a cipher. Wikipedia defines a cipher as follows: “In cryptography, a cipher (or cypher) is an algorithm for performing encryption or decryption—a series of well-defined steps that can be followed as a procedure.” The problem with encoding or encrypting knowledge about the end times intended for people who will be alive thousands of years into the future is that the knowledge could be lost. This possibility requires what I call an “anti-cipher.”
Anti-ciphers are included in messages from the ancients that are so profoundly important for the future of mankind that they require a special means of confirming that the encoded message has been correctly interpreted.
Basically, the anti-cipher says “as difficult as this may be for you to believe, you have correctly decoded our message to you. Believe it!” Both the encoded message and its anti-cipher are hidden from view, but once discovered reinforce each other. I did not discover The First Great Anti-Cipher built into the design of the Great Pyramid of Giza, but I am the first to recognize it as an ingenious anti-cipher (one that anticipates massive earthquakes before the end time). I did discover The Second Great Anti-Cipher built into the design of the Maya Long Count calendar. It tells us when to expect the axial tilt, which is sometime around the end of 2018. These two anti-ciphers are the key to understanding our past, present, and future as an intelligent species. I recently added The Third Great Anti-Cipher to the № 81. “The Mark of the Beast” Number 666 page. See also The Capstone section of the № 22. Modern Apocalyptic Artifacts page.
The Second Great Anti-Cipher
The First Great Anti-Cipher tells us what to expect, which is an axial tilt. The Second Great Anti-Cipher is discussed in this section. It tells us when to expect it.
The designers included what I call an “anti-cipher” though, so that one could be sure the actual unit of measurement is the orbital period of Jupiter, which for us is 11.8618 years. I do not mean to suggest that the orbital period of Jupiter has changed since the calendar was designed, but the length of a year most certainly has changed since then.
So let us ignore this possibility and compute the length of a Great Cycle using days.
ONE MAYAN GREAT CYCLE:
144,000 x 13 = 1,872,000
1,872,000 ÷ 365.242 = 5,125
And now let us compute the length of the entire Mesoamerican Long Count calendar using days.
1,872,000 x 5 = 9,360,000
9,360,000 ÷ 365.2422 = 25,626
The precise number is:
Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar = 25626.830634576179861 years
Now let us compute the length of the entire Mesoamerican Long Count calendar using orbits of Jupiter:
11.8618 x 2160 = 25621.488 years
The difference is:
25626.830634576179861 – 25621.488 = 5.342634576179861 years
Instead of the 5.25 “unlucky five days” of the yearly Wayeb, it is 5.34 years or what I call the Great Wayeb. This is your anti-cipher. This is the designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar telling you, “You got it. The actual unit of measurement is orbits of Jupiter and much like you need to add five days to December 16, 2013 to get to the winter solstice, you need to add five years to get to the start of the grand solar minimum that is about to rock your world.”
There is another way of looking at this anti-cipher. A baktun of 144,000 days is 400 years using the old calendar of 360 days. If you multiply those 400 years by 5.2422 the answer is 2096.88, which divided by 365.2422 is 5.741067160366464. Again, we are pointed to five. The difference is always five, the same as the five unlucky days added to the solar calendar after February 26th, 747 BC. Add five! is the message.
The Mayan who painted those crazy looking murals at the Denver International Airport (the welcome center for the extensive underground tunnel systems in Colorado and throughout the Western United States of America), knows all about the extended end date or Great Wayeb. See Leo Tanguma (DIA murals) for a discussion. I’ve read all of Leo Tanguma’s interviews. He’s a damn (good) liar. He knows. He points to the Sun, creates a plus sign with no less than the feathers of the sacred resplendent quetzal bird (ADD), and then point to an outstretch hand (FIVE) with the last of the three sixes in 666 highlighted. If you think I am imagining this, so be it. You probably think 2160 orbits of Jupiter is a figment of my imagination, too. I tell you what, if you’re right, I’ve taken “confirmation bias” (or Rorschach tests) to a whole new level. But I’m telling you, Leo Tanguma knows. I can assure you of that.
Copied from the discussion of the second Great Anto-cipher…
The wonder of it all doesn’t stop here. Using the accepted GMT correlation date, moving forward to 2018, and then backwards (as must be done in this order), the start of the fifth and last Great Cycle in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar (3106 BC, but which is widely believed to be August 11, 3114 BC) is in perfect agreement with the start of the Yuga calendar of India. (April 20, 3105 BC). It is also close to the approximate the date Nathan Hoffman arrives at for the biblical Deluge (3000 BC) based on a new understanding of Old Testament genealogies as discussed on the biblical Deluge page. In mentioning the later, I am not waxing religious. I think those genealogies were specifically intended to communicate the approximate year of the end of the last world when Proto-Saturn exploded, the axis tilted to an unnatural 23.5°, and the world flooded.
Carl Munck on The Length of a Mayan Year
Main Article: 13 Baktuns versus 13 Ahau (the end date)
A Baktun is 144,000 days. Using our present measurement of 365.2422 days as the length of a year, 144,000 days is 394.26 years (rounded). According to Carl Munck, at the time our ancestors were building all of the pyramids and mounds in what he calls the “grid,” the length of the year was 365.020081 days. Surely these were the same people who developed the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. If that is so, then 144,000 days (divided by 365.020081) is equal to 394.50 years (rounded). This is a considerable difference of roughly three months. In one Great Cycle of 13 Baktuns, the difference is even more pronounced.
Mainstream science says the years are getting longer, too, but at a rate of at most 1.8 to 2.3 milliseconds a century. This is classical uniformitarianism applied to metrology. What proof does Munck offer for this shorter year?
When computing the “grid longitude” of Kukulcan, he notes that there are 365 steps but then says:
As explained in my earlier presentations, the number 365 has no more meaning in the code than it does in referring to the calendar. There is no 365 day year and never has been. Today the year is 365.2422 days long, and is growing. When this matrix was mapped out thousands of years ago, the year was 365.020081 days long and that’s the number we have to use here.

He then uses the same figure of 365.020081 days in a year to compute the “grid longitude” of The Pyramid of the (365) Niches in El Tajín, Mexico.
Critics of “archaeocryptography” (a term Wikipedia uses to attack his credibility) might note that the only difference between using 365 versus 365.020081 in this computation is that the longitude minutes are 34.218 (or 34.219 rounded), which is pretty negligible. To which Munck responds with a pretty amazing “checkmate” use of 325.020081 days in a year:
But it’s no real problem for a master suppressionist to dispose of any of the preceding by simply asserting that all of these field measurements are wrong. So let’s setup another checkmate, shall we. Kukulcan does this for us, in part. Ninety degree right angles everywhere. And its 365 steps, which we now know to represent the figure 365.020081
The derivative here is 4.055778, a figure which any better modern calculator can show as being the tangent of 7123.85068.
Kukulcan explained the first part. Back in 1993, the US Geological Survey explained the second part. I sent the exact coordinates of Kukulcan and the Great Pyramid off to the national geodetic survey in Silver Spring, Maryland, and ask their computers to plot me the exact surface distance over the Earth which separates these two pyramids. I further asked that they provide the figure back to me in terms of 5280 foot statute miles. And this is how it came back, 7,123.8. This 7,123.8 mile line from the Kukulcan vectors itself on the Great Pyramid, or vice versa. The tangent to mile message here is so obvious that no further explanation is really necessary. [1:31:32 to 1:33:21 in Part 2 of “The Code”]
I think even the most ardent skeptic would have to take a hard look at this. The tangent is exact and is not obtainable without the .020081 added to 365 (the number of steps).
But Munck finds further support for 365.020081 being the length of the year in no less than the Great Pyramid of Giza.This is deeply troubling because there is general agreement in the field of comparative mythology, especially in the more recent work of Jno Cook, that the change from a 360 day year to a 365 day year occurred on February 26th, 747 BC. The Great Pyramid of Giza was obviously built before then, so this information could not be deliberately encoded into the design of the pyramid. You can review this discussion for yourself. It begins at 1:02:48 in Part 1 of “The Code.”
The only mitigating factor in this mistake is that Munck uses a somewhat contrived “grid vector” for the Great Pyramid, one which does not cross the apex of the pyramid, but rather its north face. On the surface, this shows the weakness of Carl Munck’s work and supports the Wikipedia “archaeocryptography” blatant attack on him. I would respond to this criticism by pointing out that Immanuel Velikovsky was not without his faults either, yet his work has served as the foundation stone of the Electric Universe (EU) movement. Mainstream science is utterly (mathematically) insane. The only thing they are really good at is defending that insanity.
“I believe this is the end date based on the Mayan Model as put forth by Dr. Calleman, and as presented by Ian Xel Lungold. BOWMAN has a few threads on this.”

Not a Maya Invention
The Maya didn’t invent the calendar, it was used by most cultures in pre-Columbian Central America – including the Maya – from around 2000 BCE to the 16th century. The Mayan civilization developed the calendar further and it’s still in use in some Maya communities today.

I use parentheses around “Mayan” because this calendar is a much more ancient artifact. This is done for the sake of popular thought. A more correct name for this calendar is Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. My use of the term Mesoamerican Long Count calendar includes both the Mayan calendar and the Aztec calendar stone. So when you see imagery of the Aztec calendar stone on this website, do not think I am “mistaking” it for the Mayan calendar. The two calendar systems are nearly indistinguishable. That’s for a reason. They are in fact the same calendar.
The notion that Columbus “discovered” America is too preposterous to even consider. He did however provide a context for the Conquistadors and Jesuits to destroy the literary legacy of the designers of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar. But why bother, you may object, because nothing happened on December 21, 2012? 2012 was crying wolf. It succeed spectacularly. Even mentioning the “Mayan” calendar invites ridicule, if not disdain. My most important work, the work that started me in earnest down this path, is on this calendar. Over five years ago, I discovered the actual unit of measurement of the calendar is orbits of Jupiter. There are 432 orbits of Jupiter in one Great Cycle. The entire calendar of five Great Cycles is (432 x 5 =) 2160 orbits of Jupiter. 432 and 216 are two of the nine sacred numbers. The nine sacred numbers manifest themselves not only in geometry, music, and space, but also in time. This is little understood. The manifestation of sacred numbers in time is as physical as the protons and electrons in an atom and is discussed in the section entitled “Sacred numbers manifest themselves in time also.” This is why these nine sacred numbers are the religion of the progeny of Jove and, interestingly enough, why there were precisely 216 above-ground atomic bomb tests.
I maintain on this page a list of “Mayan” calendar pages for people doing basic research into this subject.
Access them while you can. Their owners continue to pay mistakenly thinking the relevance of their work has long since passed along with all the hysteria, intellectual pretension, and hype of the December 21, 2012 date.
