13 Baktun Cycle Wave Harmonic of History

The radial fractal properties of the 13:20 universal frequency of synchronization have equally universal applications. The Tzolkin, the self-repeating 260 day (kin) sacred count, is the basis of the Mayan long count of the great cycle of history. The long count, of course, appears to be a purely chronological phenomenon, marking the count of days between August 13, 3113 BC and December 21, AD 2012. The count of days, is also represented by a master fourth-dimensional 13:20 matrix. The 1,872,000 kin (day) duration of the long count consists of thirteen major sub-cycles called baktuns, each sub-cycle consisting of 144,000 days or kin. Each of these sub-cycles is again divided into 20 smaller sub-cycles called katuns, each of which consists of 7200 days or kin. This also means that there are 7200 260-day cycles to the entire set of thirteen baktuns. The thirteen baktuns and 20 katuns represent a perfect fractal of the 260-unit fourth-dimensional timing matrix spread out as a chronotopology called history, where each katun represents one of 260 kin. The baktuns represent a set of waves (morphogenetic fields), each with 20 lesser waves rising in a pitch of climax during the thirteenth and final baktun, AD 1618-2012.

While the Mayan long count had been known about for some time, it was only in 1987, that the great cycle, as it is also known, was realized in its fractal modular form as the wave harmonic of history. In this explicit construct, the great cycle is a genuine time map, a chronotopology which defines history as having a very precise and specific beginning and an equally precise ending. It has often been pointed out that if the Mayan civilization had its great period only in the tenth baktun, long count (AD 435-830), what was their purpose  in creating a count of history that originated more than three millennia prior, and even more chillingly, why does their calendar “end” in 2012?

The beginning of the thirteen baktun count, August 13, 3113 BC, 4 Ahau,, is as precise and accurate as one can get for a beginning of history:  the first Egyptian dynasty is dated to ca. 3100 BC; the first “city,” Uruk, in Mesopotamia, also ca. 3100 BC; the Hindu kali Yuga, 3102 BC; and most interestingly, the division of time into 24 hours of 60 minutes each and each minute into 60 seconds, also around 3100 BC, in Sumeria. If the beginning of history was so accurately placed, then must not the end of history, December 21, 2012, also be as accurate? Of course, that is why even David Ewing Duncan’s Calendar concludes its time line with 2012 “end of the Mayan great cycle.” How did the Maya know all of this and what does it mean that history is about to end?

Whether or not one agrees with the latest school of interpretation of the Mayan civilization as being thoroughly aggressive and based in every way on the “blood of kings,” one cannot ignore the fact that their time science was superior in every regard to what we know today. And that is very much to the point. The law of time was embedded in the Mayan way of knowing, and their superiority of knowledge owes altogether to a familiarity with the synchronic order of time. This means they could know and do things in ways which modern third-dimensional space would today consider supernatural.

Quite simply, among their elders, sages and prophets it was known that what we call history, the duration of the thirteen baktun count, is the time of trial on earth. The thirteen baktuns is the time allotted to the human being to run its course of trial and error, culminating in the error in time, the creation of the 12:60 Gregorian civilization that captures and dominates the entire thirteenth baktun. What is known as the kali yuga to the Hindus is no different than this cycle of history, which in the end must return to a new golden age. In the more familiar theologies of the Christian and Islamic worlds, the final katun cycles mark the end times, the time of judgment day on earth.

The Maya knew all this. They knew their civilization would be destroyed. They knew that even the day keepers holding to the long count would not be able to do anything more than that. So prophecy itself had to be established, the prophecy of the law of time. For only in this way, at the end of the cycle would there be a criterion to be able to distinguish the false - the artificial 12:60 timing frequency - from the true - the 13:20 timing frequency. This was the mission of the greatest Mayan prophet and king, Pacal Votan, who built and coded his tomb with the greatest of all Mayan prophecies, the prophecy of time itself. Encoded within the law of time and the Telektonon is a veritable new dispensation of time, the revelation of the synchronic order of the science of time.
