№ 17. Welcome Back! (to respect for the ancients)




READER BEWARE: Though this massively misunderstood calendar actually comes to an end this month on December 16, 2018, I have yet to finish writing this page, or any of the pages in the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar series. No worries, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar is an “end times marker.” Unless Comet 46P/Wirtanen crashes into earth, nothing spectacular is going to happen on that day. As discussed in the Revelation 12:1-2 on September 23, 2017 (923) section of the № 23. 2017 versus 2018 page, September 23, 2017 was another important end times marker. Nothing happened on that day either. But I will say this, we are in fact living in the end times. It is high time to stop and take notice. Aufwacken! as the Germans say. We are “right at the door” and the ancients are screaming at us.


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)



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.



The boy who cried wolf

Crying Wolf and December 12, 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. As discussed on the№ 19. End Date and Great Wayeb page, 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 Mesoamerican 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 the actual end date of December 16, 2013. 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.

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 this 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. It short to discuss the 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.

Solar cycle 24 sunspot count

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.

Sunspot activity during the past 11,400 years

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.


siddha definition


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 is named after the three men who contributed to its development, their last names being Goodman, Martinez, and Thompson.

The GMT Correlation Date

See alsoExploring the 584286 Correlation between the Maya and European Calendars (Another, more technical name for the GMT correlation date is the 584283 correlation.)
See also: Correlating the Ancient Maya and Modern European Calendars with High-Precision AMS 14C Dating

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 three interlocking gears (or cogs) of the Long Count calendar


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 Mesoamerican Long Count calendar 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 Calendar

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.

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.

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.


Cut from somewhere else…

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.
