Counting the days of the Maya-year

The fact that this formation has been created near the Rollright Stone Circle has a deeper meaning. Legend has it that it is impossible to count the King’s Men. As will be explained this refers to the confusion that exists among Maya-researchers about the true count of Maya-calendars! In the Maya civilization, counting of the years was done by stones (called “Tun”). A Tun (stone) is a cosmic “year” of 360 days. The Maya made use of a count that kept up with the number of Tuns and days (“Kin”) that had been elapsed. This count is called the “Long Count” and nowadays this count is subject to a lot of discussion, as the end of the Long Count refers to the end of present age and the end of time in the year 2012. It turns out that this formation not only has a relationship with the Long Count, but particularly with the “normal” Mayan year of 365 days. We can count the “stones” as follows:

This formation tells us: today is day 9 or 10 of “Vinal” 4 (a Vinal is a period of 20 days). This makes use of the fact that the formation consists of 2 circles of the Vesica Piscis. The Vesica Piscis is an old symbol that sometimes is connected with the Gospels and symbolizes the connection of the male with the female, from which people return to their origin, symbolized by the stars. As will be explained this relates to this calendar. We actually find day 10, but it’s notable that the tenth circle is remarkable smaller. Moreover day 9 – in connection with day 3 – forms a perfect triangle with month 4. Apart from that day 3 has perfectly been aligned with a sign with a swirl at the edge of the formation and it will turn out that day 3 of Vinal 4 (“Zotz”) has a special meaning, that will be clarified later.

The days of the Vinals aren’t numbered from 1 to 20, but from 0 to 19 and this is the reason why the counting starts with 0. The Vinals themselves have names, but it makes sense to assign number 1 to the first Vinal, number 2 to the second etc. The Maya-year has 18 Vinals of 20 days (total of 18 x 20 = 360 days) plus a leftover of 5 days “out of time” (sometimes 6). These 5 days out of time at the end of the year can be considered as Vinal number 0 that precede the real start of the year. That’s why it makes sense to start also with number 0 referring the Vinals. Moreover, it will turn out that day 0 of “Vinal 0” (called Vayeb) has a special meaning.

Regarding the Maya-year there exists a big problem: nobody knows when the year actually starts and that explains the connection with the legend of the Rollright Stone Circle!! What is the reason? Maya-researchers know the relationship between the Maya-year and the Gregorian calendar in the past. It is known that in the past the Maya-year didn’t have leap days and “drifted” away from the Gregorian calendar. However when the Spanish conquered Meso-America, they decided to fix the beginning of the Mayan year on the 26th July. This date has also been found back in the books of Chilam Balam (actually the 16th July in the Julian calendar). As a result the Mayan year starts on the 26th July.

The question is: is this really true? The point is that the Mayan year can be divided into “months” in 2 different ways. Apart from the division in 18 Vinals, they sometimes also divided the year in 13 months of 28 days. This “13-moon-calendar” nowadays made it’s revival among followers of the Mayan calendar and this calendar starts on the 26th July indeed. However a calendar actually is based upon the divine creation and to the calendar of 18 Vinals, the starting-date of the 26th July doesn’t apply despite the decision of the Spanish …

From my spiritual guide, I got the true starting date of this calendar, namely the 26th of May (note the relationship of “May” with “Maya”!). Nowadays also this calendar has been synchronized with the Gregorian calendar, but this didn’t happen before the 13th January 1756 (on that day 9 days have been skipped in this calendar), while the 13-moon-calendar already has been synchronized in the year 1540 (by the Spanish). With the starting date on the 26th May, the third of August, the date of the formation, indeed is day 9 of the 4th Vinal (called “Zotz” or bat)!! The Vinal Zotz stands for experiences that lead to renewed insights and knowledge.

The crop circle artists added several indications that provide us with extra information. First of all there is a tiny dot – a reference point – that connects circle number 4 (Vinal Zotz) with the large circle, that represents 0. This means that day 0 of Vinal Zotz can be considered as a reference point. This turns out to fall on the 25th July. This indeed is an important reference as it marks the end of the 13-moon-calendar (the day out of time, which is to be considered as 0)!

The formation can also be connected with the Gregorian calendar. Also in this case we again make use of the Vesica Piscis: The intersection point of both circles is the common point of two circles from which we start the count of the months as well as the day. Regarding the day-count, we continue with the remaining circles:

In the Gregorian calendar, the number 0 has no meaning, so in this case the count starts with number 1. We find the month number 5 (yellow) and day number 26 (black) or the 26th May, New Years day, indeed!! Note that the other intersection point got number 12, which also refers to the 12 months of the Gregorian calendar. In this case a reference point results in a connection between 5 and 12, which can also be considered as 5 x 12 = 60. The 60th day of the year is the leap day (the 29th February) in leap years. So this refers to leap years. This also makes sense as this calendar has been synchronized with the Gregorian calendar in a leap year (1756). Moreover also the year of transformation, 2012, is a leap year. Through the synchronization of this Mayan calendar with the Gregorian calendar, the number of days of the year during a leap year equals 366 and there are 6 days out of time. The first day (day number 0) of this period falls 6 days before the 26th May and this explains the special ring near the number 20, which refers to the 20th May! This ring can be considered as 0, but can also refer to the annular eclipse on the 20th May 2012 in a conjunction with the Pleiades! So in this case the dot (swirl) near this ring refers to the Pleiades. As this is month number 0 and referring the formation the count of the year actually starts with month number 0, the 20th May can be considered as the beginning of the year during leap years (the 21st May during other years).

Even the number of stones of the Rollright Stone Circle (77) tells us something. Starting from day 0 of Vinal 0, 10 Zotz (the forth August) is the 77th day of the year (in leap years the 76th in other years)! The other way around: when we count 77 days back from the third or fourth August (9 or 10 Zotz), this falls on the 18th or 19th May. These dates have a special meaning, while during the 256 years from 1756 to 2012, the 18th to 19th May is the average date on which the sun and the Pleiades are conjunct. In the year 1756 this fell on the 17th May, but nowadays this falls on the 20th or sometimes the 21st May. Why did this shift happen? The reason is the so called precession-cycle. To make a long story short this has the result that the tropical year and the year in relation to the stars aren’t equal. This is important as the reason that the Maya-year nowadays actually starts on the 20th or the 21st May is that this is the day of a conjunction of the sun with the Pleiades! However as the Gregorian calendar has been based upon the tropical year (and not on the sidereal year) in future a problem would rise. For this reason, from 2012 onwards, the Mayan year will be “uncoupled” from the tropical year of the Gregorian calendar and get a different pattern of leap days (every 4 years plus additionally every 260 years and every 400 years an extra leap day will be added).

In the diagram there is also a reference point near circle 16: this refers to the 16th May. The last days of the actual Mayan year from the 16th until the 20th May (vinal “Cumku”) have a special meaning. As the 16th May falls precisely 12 lunar months or 13 sidereal months after the start of the solar year on the 26th May, this date actually completes the cycle referring the moon. There also exists a relationship with the Earth on 19°39’ North latitude: This latitude is connected with energetic points of light as these are connected with the South Pole by a tetrahedron (pyramid of 4 triangles). On the 16th and 17th May, the sun is in the zenith on this latitude in the Northern hemisphere. On a subconscious level there is an evaluation of the past year. This is emphasized by the fact that the period from the 17th (1756) to the 20th May (2012) is also the period on which the sun is in a conjunction with the Pleiades.

In the year 2012, the reprogramming from the 16th until the 20th May in connection with the moon, the Pleiades, the tetrahedron of the Earth and the solar eclipse on the 20th May in conjunction with Mercury and Jupiter, will lead to a permanent reprogramming of mankind. The conjunction of Mercury with the sun also appeared on the 17th May 1756: from then on people started to explore their inner child.

Still the question remains if there is a special reason that this formation arose in 2009. Indeed there is a reason for that. As already noticed, the last circles of the 2 outer rings are considerably smaller than the other circles. When we leave out this 2 circles and also leave out the small reference points and the marking ring and swirl at the edge, the formation consists of 28 = 4 x 7 circles. However the Vesica Piscis actually is an old symbol for infinity and the number 8. So we can also consider number 8 x 7 = 56 instead of 28 as a key-number of this formation. This also links up with the earlier mentioned year 1756. It turns out that when we count back 56 x 56 (3136) lunar months (29.5306 days) from the day of the formation, the outcome is exactly the 13th January 1756, the day on which the synchronization of the Mayan calendar with the Gregorian calendar took place!! Furthermore, the fact that the marking ring with a swirl has perfectly been aligned with day 3 (see first diagram above) and the triangle between Vinal 4 (Zotz) and day 3 tell us that not only 9 or 10 Zotz, but also 3 Zotz has a special meaning. When we go back in the past and consider the last year that new year started on 3 Zotz (in the Julian calendar), this turns out to be 1/1/1120. The number 1120 equals 20 x 56! This is interesting as this is not only a multiple of 56, but the number 20 is an important number regarding time, especially regarding the 20 days of the 18 Vinals of the Mayan year!

Finally, I did intensive research regarding the orientation of the formation (using Google Earth amongst others). The formation has been orientated almost precise East-West. Although there is an error of 2.5 to 3 degrees, I neglected this in the first instance. This leads to the following diagram:

Despite the error regarding the East-West-orientation of the formation (dotted lines), the orientation of the formation to sunrise and sunset is very notable, because the Vesica Piscis has the property that the tangent of each intersection point corresponds with an angle of 30 degrees, while sunrise at 52° North latitude (the latitude of the formation) on the third August (date formation) is exactly 30° North of the East! The same is true for sunset in the direction of West North West (30° North of the West). From the upper intersection point of the circles of the Vesica Piscis, The Whispering Knights are situated to the East exactly parallel with the quasi East-West-line. Furthermore it’s is very notable that the direction of sunrise is exactly the same as the signs at the edge of the formation that refer to the conjunction of the sun with the Pleiades and the solar eclipse on the 20th May! However when we correct the error, we find out that the orientation has been based upon the tangent of the lowest circle (true East-West-line):

In this case the tangent of the Western circle in the direction of sunset has exactly been aligned with the centre of the stone circle The King’s Men. The difference with the orientation of the Whispering Knights is very notable. The direction of sunset has a relationship with the seasons and the tropical year. However from a symbolical point of view sunset also refers to an end. In this case this is connected with the end of the connection of the Maya-calendar with the tropical year. In contrast to that the East is connected with a new start. This start hasn’t been connected with sunrise, but the reference to the monumental burial chamber of the Whispering Knights in the East, refers to a revival, like Phoenix that rises out of its ashes.

It turns out that thanks to the slight rotation of the formation, the tangent at the intersection point of the Western circle has perfectly been aligned with the rise of the Hyades, a star cluster in Taurus. This is important as on the 26th May, the start of the new year, the sun is conjunct the Hyades. I also found a perfect alignment with the Pleiades in connection with the sign in the East, that refers to this star cluster. This alignment with stars and star clusters holds all the year round.

The alignment of the formation towards the Pleiades as well as the Hyades clarify that the calendar from the year 2012 won’t be related with the tropical year, but the sidereal year (synchronized with the stars!). This is emphasized by the fact that in the West, the formation has been aligned with the set of Jupiter on the end of the Maya-year in May 2012. This contrasts with the rise of Jupiter at midnight on the 13th January 1756, when the synchronization with the Gregorian calendar took place! The set of Jupiter in the West has been connected with the signs in the East that refer to the connection with the stars, especially the Pleiades (dotted line), which will take it over from Jupiter.

It’s also very notable that the East-West-line refers to the lowest circle. This gives rise to the idea to count the circles, starting from the central circle. From there we come out at number 1. However the circle invites us to go one time around and then we find number 17. It’s very notable that also the tangents in the direction of sunrise and sunset precisely fall on an intersection point that corresponds with the centre of a circle. In the diagram we find that sunrise corresponds with 2 and sunset with number 7 (see yellow numbers). So we found the numbers 17.2.7. This is very interesting, because according to the Mayan Long Count the 4th August, the day to which the formation actually refers, corresponds with count The last 3 ciphers correspond with the ciphers we find in the formation! This is very important, because even at present Maya-researchers weren’t able to a full reconstruction of the Long Count (see ): the deviation from the true Long Count equals 203 days.

Apart from the Long Count, we can also define a count referring the industrial age. This started on the 19th March 1756 (with count, about 2 months after the synchronization of the Maya calendar with the Gregorian calendar. This age is 20 times shorter than the age of world religions, on which the Long Count has been based. In that case we find the count instead of It’s interesting to note that also the number 12, can be derived from the formation (see numbers in red above).

How to Digitally Record/Video a UFO sighting:

Como registar digitalmente ou gravar um vídeo de um avistamento de um UFO:

Stabilize the camera on a tripod. If there is no tripod, then set it on top of a stable, flat surface. If that is not possible lean against a wall to stabilize your body and prevent the camera from filming in a shaky, unsteady manner.

Estabilize a camera com um tripé. Se não tiver um tripé, então coloque-a em cima de uma superfície estável. Se não for possível, então encoste-se a uma parede para estabilizar o corpo e evitar que a camera registe de maneira tremida e instável.

Provide visual reference points for comparison. This includes the horizon, treetops, lampposts, houses, and geographical landmarks (i.e., Horsetooth Reservoir, Mt. Adams, etc.) Provide this in the video whenever is appropriate and doesn’t detract from what your focus is, the UFO.

Forneça pontos visuais de referência para comparação. Isso inclui o horizonte, cimo das árvores, postes de iluminação, pontos de referência geográficos (como o Reservatório de Horsetooth, Mone Adams, etc) Forneça esses pontos no vídeo sempre que for apropriado e não se distraia do que é o seu foco, o UFO/a Nave.

Narrate your videotape. Provide details of the date, time, location, and direction (N,S,E,W) you are looking in. Provide your observations on the weather, including approximate temperature, windspeed, any visible cloud cover or noticeable weather anomalies or events. Narrate on the shape, size, color, movements, approximate altitude of the UFO, etc and what it appears to be doing. Also include any unusual physical, psychological or emotional sensations you might have. Narrate any visual reference points on camera so they correlate with what the viewer will see, and thereby will be better able to understand.

Faça a narração do vídeo. Forneça pormenores sobre a data, hora, local e direcção (Norte, Sul, Este, Oeste) que está a observar. Faça observações sobre as condições atmosféricas, incluindo a temperatura aproximada, velocidade do vento, quantidade de nuvens, anomalias ou acontecimentos meteorológicos evidentes. Descreva a forma, o tamanho, a cor, os movimentos, a altitude aproximada onde se encontra o UFO/nave, etc e o que aparenta estar a fazer. Inclua também quaisquer aspectos pouco habituais de sensações físicas, psicológicas ou emocionais que possa ter. Faça a narração de todos os pontos de referência visual que o espectador irá ver e que, deste modo, será capaz de compreender melhor.

Be persistent and consistent. Return to the scene to videotape and record at this same location. If you have been successful once, the UFO sightings may be occurring in this region regularly, perhaps for specific reasons unknown, and you may be successful again. You may also wish to return to the same location at a different time of day (daylight hours) for better orientation and reference. Film just a minute or two under “normal” circumstances for comparison. Write down what you remember immediately after. As soon as you are done recording the experience/event, immediately write down your impressions, memories, thoughts, emotions, etc. so it is on the record in writing. If there were other witnesses, have them independently record their own impressions, thoughts, etc. Include in this exercise any drawings, sketches, or diagrams. Make sure you date and sign your documentation.

Seja persistente e não contraditório. Volte ao local da cena e registe o mesmo local. Se foi bem sucedido uma vez, pode ser que nessa região ocorram avistamentos de UFOs/naves com regularidade, talvez por razões específicas desconhecidas, e talvez possa ser novamente bem sucedido. Pode também desejar voltar ao mesmo lugar a horas diferentes do dia (durante as horas de luz)para ter uma orientação e referência melhor. Filme apenas um ,inuto ou dois em circunstâncias “normais” para ter um termo de comparação. Escreva tudo o que viu imediatamente após o acontecimento. Logo após ter feito o registo da experiência/acontecimento, escreva imediatamente as impressões, memórias, pensamentos, emoções, etc para que fiquem registadas por escrito. Se houver outras testemunhas, peça-lhes para registar independentemente as suas próprias impressões, pensamentos, etc. Inclua quaisquer desenhos, esbolos, diagramas. Certifique-se que data e assina o seu documento/testemunho.

Always be prepared. Have a digital camera or better yet a video camera with you, charged and ready to go, at all times. Make sure you know how to use your camera (and your cell phone video/photo camera) quickly and properly. These events can occur suddenly, unexpectedly, and often quite randomly, so you will need to be prepared.

Esteja sempre preparado, Tenha sempre uma camera digital, melhor ainda, uma camera vídeo consigo, carregada e pronta a usar sempre que necessário. Certifique-se que sabe como lidar com a sua camera (ou com o seu celular/camera fotográfica) rápida e adequadamente. Esses acontecimentos podem acontecer súbita e inesperadamente e, por vezes, acidentalmente, por isso, necessita estar preparado.

Look up. Be prepared. Report. Share.

Olhe para cima, Esteja preparado, Relate, Partilhe.
