The ISIG Problem of the Square-Nosed Beastie

An ISIG is a wide glyph set over two columns of text on stone stelae: Unknown Entity.
Drawn by Carolyn Jones as the ISIG for a resource booklet at the Maya Meeting , 2002, at UT at Austin Texas

At first I believed that above ISIG to be the same as the Square-Nosed Beastie found in the Nuttall Codice, but closer inspection of the ISIG at the beginning of this post and the double panel shown below of the east side of Stela -F proved me wrong.
Nuttall Codex: N-17-MM
The End of the "Star-Eating"  Cycle
Date is 10- Crocodile
Such as the double set below is found on the east side of Stela-F at Quirigua. The ISIG at the top or columns A-B does not have the same iconography as the large version above.

Stela -F  East side with ISIG using the Square-Nosed Beastie.

The following ISIG actually is the Square-Nosed Beastie from Stelae E. F. and K found at Quirigua. It is only on the east side of Stela-F that it iwass used as the Initial Series Introductory Glyph.

Stela F-East side
ISIG: Square -Nosed Beastie 
I have long believed that it was a statement giving the regal power to K'ak Tiliw Yoaat, but when Simon Martin and Nikolai Grube compiled the Chronicle of the Maya Kings and Queens in 2000, it became clear that the stela was a sign indicated for the event of the Square-Nosed. Beastie, Eater of the Stars as found in the Nuttall Codex in the Mixtec area.
Stela F Ka'k Tiliw Chan Yoaat
Or "Fire-Burning Sky Lightning God"
Stela K: K'ak' jo-[lo]-ya Chan-na yo-Yoat:T? ti
Or "Jade Sky"
There seems to be an identification problem with the above two Stelae. A strong family resemblance but not more than the fifth ruler of this dynasty. If the first of these two Stelae was the 14th, then who or what was he, a person or a "god"?

Stela F contains a story about the Square-Nosed Beastie also known as the Star-Eater of the sky ball court i.e.: the Milky Way.

There are dates in this story but they have been skewed to trillions of years in the past.

Unless there is a major correction to the dates, the story cannot be a true source of "power" for any ruler in Quirigua. Mostly because no human existed in that a very long time ago.  There was no one to carry the memory forward into Maya times.

If the Square-Nosed Beastie is (or was) such a strong power source in Quirigua, that in 624 AD was used to introduce the son of Pacal as "he who would inherit Pacal's rule." one year after the death of Ruler 14 in Copan.

It is strange that the Square-Nosed Beastie is so prominent on the tomb of Pacal as the same Tree of Creation, [the Milky Way]---when Pacal introduced his son as the next ruler for the throne when he would die; it makes one wonder why the Square-Nosed Beastie has been ignored for so long. H.m.m.m.m.  Not at Palenque? Look again.

The Temple of the Cross
and the Sarcophagus of Pacal
Justin Kerr: K-688£
Is this bird the death of the Square-Nosed Beastie? It appears to be the last square-breath of a decapitated flying entity with a smoking tail: a tail that spewed enough smoke and dust  into the the stars of the Milky Way that are still hidden in a narrow space that gives appearance of a pathway for bees to go up into the most beautiful rose (now called a Camilla by NASA).

The beautiful rose is that of the Ring Nebula. once a blazing blue star before the Great Tree of Creation broke into two pieces. The broken piece is called the Tree of the Warrior (Orion is inferred).

That story can be seen in the March 23, 2013 blog here.

The Square-Nosed Beastie: Eater of The Stars

N15- BL
The Square-Nosed Beastie at Hom:  Fire in Claws

Many years ago, I discovered the Square-Nosed Beastie. It was part of Linda Schele's very first class at the University of Texas at Austin. She named several Beasties during the class; her first was Lady Beastie, the genetrix of the gods in the beginning of time.

The Squared-Nosed Beastie came next. This creature was completely without any identification, except for the fire in his claws. I never listened too hard to the lectures, I was always fascinated by the glyphs themselves.  And if I saw a different picture in the glyph, it was seldom equal to what was accepted.

Eventually, I attended the Maya Workshops, but not unto 1994 when I met Jan Adams, a woman who insisted that there was a lot of Astronomy data in the glphs. I tried to ignore her beliefs  but from that time on, most of my presentations included star "stuff."  Even so, i still insisted that I was not studying the stars. "

Early, I learned from Linda the explaination of the ISIG, commonly known as the Initial Series Introductory Glyph. This particular glyph always---when it appeared---covered two columns in the stone stelae. The concept was to notify the reader that the two columns were consistently read together. Dates were always the first set of glyphs found under each ISG. Sometimes the dates were easy for me to read and other times, when expanded full figure glyphs were used, I could not.

I was a difficult student. I always looked for a reason that many glyph passages were full of, what Linda called "spaghetti." She warned her students to look past the spaghetti" and look for the cleaner "glyph" elements.

Well, to discover meanings for picture glyphs, for me, meant "look for ideas in other languages." It was definitely, a NO-NO, since the epigraphers insisted that one must study only Maya languages. In the codices, mostly the Mixtec, the glyphs were expanded beyond single cartouche images. They we're always full-figured elements. The Squared-Nosed Beastie was one of them.

In the above drawing, the S-N Beastie was starting out from his sky location. Google would say his location was his home address. He obviously is a very hungry sky traveler. He seems to be eating the stars that surround the mythical ball court of Hunahpu, the Maya sky entity. of the Popol Vuh. Another glyph of the Square-Nosed Beastie shows a slightly different view.

N-17-MM
The End of the "Star-Eating"  Cycle
Date is 10- Crocodile
N-18-ML
Date: 12-Wind   Fire in Claws










The question is:  Does N-18 come before N-17 or is it where it belongs?
N-19a-TL
Date: 13-Flower:  No Fire in Claws
This view shows that he has eaten all the stars of the . Ball Court. Since only one other view shows him in the process of eating still more stars,this may be a glyph placed incorrectly. It is possible it belongs to the end of this "Star-Eating" series.

  •  However, if is placed where try in the middle of the two N-15 and N18, then 

m
N-17-MM
The End of the "Star-Eating"  Cycle
Date is 10- Crocodile
it not only follows the path of the Madrid Codex, but also agrees with the Ninth Prophecy  of the Hopi.Indians. in order to retain that basic knowledge of their origins, it had to either predate as past history, or post-dated as an event yet to  occur.

Cloud Seeding---Is It Useful.?

During the last week, Texas and many of the Plains States have had torrential rains. More than a week of them, but serious flooding in many areas. Homes have been lost in the flooding waters of rivers and no one has a clue as to why it is so bad this year.

The sky is black today, early in the afternoon. And Austin has been lucky so far. But the heavy rains are to continue the rest of this week. Why?

What does Cloud Seeding actually do?  I have seen the trails in the sky between two clouds that eventually touch each other and then grow a bit wider together. But seldom have I ever seen rain in this area because of the expanded clouds. I doubt if anyone who paid for such service were ever satisfied with the "Results."

Silver oxide is not used, only silveriodide, except I do not know much about either chemical. All I know is that I have seen the plane doing the seeding antd seen how eventually we get a full sky of clouds . .. . but never any rain.

I have read about acres of coral reefs dying; more than 60 acres because of chemical imbalance in the once clear waters of the tropics. I have studied about our altered DST [Daylight Savings] and know our world is no longer where it was 50 years ago.

The other chemicals that are trashed in the oceans, not including the plastic small items that are killing our birds but three mile long trash that includes TV's plastic storage drums. There are quite a few larger items that float and do not deteriorate normally.

But more importantly, there are empty fuel pods from the space shuttles. Don't they produce an acid imbalance when they fall safely into the Seas. It seems to me that acid from empty shuttle fuel pods plus the silveriodide fallout from the cloud seeding is do irreparable harm, whether in the sky or falling to the  land or sea.

One factor that does not ever seem toenter into discussions about our horrible weather patterns is the Jet Stream high over head. It constantly circles out atmosphere and along the way picks up, ocean water via the sun in the water rain cycle of nature and more than a little of the materials [chemicals] used in cloud seeding. Is that how we are getting so much rain all at once?  

Such chemical do not deteriorate, but expand even more with their journey on the Jet Stream.#

2012 or was it 2008..

Now that all the Hoopla about 2012 is over, I just recently read one of my books about The Truth about 2012. The previous blog about Three Consellationa and how they just might be only One set of stars in different positions got me to thinking about 2012 that  I believe came in 2008 AD.



As the earth spins in its orbit, it also twists
24-hour to give usd365-days every year.
instead of 360 days that the ancient texts tell us.

The current slanted position of our earth finally reminded me of Oppolzer and his eclipse tables and how they spanned the earth----sometimes in one place, and other times in a completely different location. Many times the eclipse would occurr on a different continent, either in the north and often in the south.

Our earth spins within 24-hours around the North Pole. Because of the twisted axis, making our Earth lean to the outer edge of its orbt, it creates summer north of the Equator when there is winter south of the Equator. After six months around the sun in its own proper orbit, the Earth then changes summer into winter in the North and winter into summer in the South.

Because of that slanted pole axis, (noted above) sun moves from the Tropic of Cancer to the Equator 23.6 degrees; and from the Equator to the Tropic of Capricorn, it moves further south another 23.5 degrees, every winter and every summer. Thus the Earth is slanted 47 degrees southward and then back again another 47 degrees northward.

Does it take a rocket scientist to figure out such a scenario?  Rocket scientists look for good weather conditions, but I do not know which vector they use to put the space shuttles into orbit. Is it when the moon, the space station, or Mars is directly over their heards, or it is just anywhere into the stratosphere, and they steer it from that elevated position to the primary target of that shuttle?

Our sun moves from the East to the West; all the time. Once I had a question put to me how far does the sun move in one, two, or three months of the yearl? It was a trick question and I failed. The sun, of course, does not move anywhere. The Earth, as it does as it twists for 24 hours as one complete day and night, as well as turning in its own orbit for 365.25 days to make a year,  Calendar enthusists, who do not know the Maya calendar was already off 161 days in 1586, would make gross errors in calculations which included Maya events.

And then there is the name of the Julian count fr European calendars. Julius Caesar created the "year of confusion" by telling his subjects that the year would end in 445 days, not----wait a minute---- which Julius Caesar? Was it Julius Caesar Scaliger a Ftench physician, whose son was in a monastery in Rome. The Julius Caesar died when his son was only 18 years old. Then it would be 365.25 days that had to be added to the count for each year, or  was it Julius Caesar, the Emperor of Rome, of the 42 BC. Then it would be only 360 days to add as each year,at least [fast forward] to the stellar event that the Maya have attemped to date accurately for the Julian reverse counts.

No one in Germany probably ever notice a stone peg board for workers during the time of the Emperor of Rome half hidden among other artifacts in a museum there.

The peg board has holes for each planet  for each month  name and it has pegs for two columns of days for a total of 15 days on each side of the "board." The 30-day count does not extend so one or more days could have been added.  It is the same day and  month count found on the ceiling of the Dendera Temple in Egypt. Visitors think it strange that a different ceiling nearby has the new 365 day count.

However, such strange anomalies do  ot answer our very first question?  Could 2012 have  arrived four years earlier and not even be noticed by either the Maya scholars or the Maya themselves?

Well  if we re-read the previous post about three constellations that might be only one star formation, and remember where some of the sun eclipses had been located in the last ten or 15 years---- you might think there may be a valid clue to such an occurrance.

In 2006 NASA got a photo from the Hubble space scope of disintegrating comet that was passing by the Ring Nebula. The Ring Nebula is located  very close to the star Vega found in the constellation Lyra, once called "the Turtle."

In the Popol Vuh  the Maya "Bible," that  etwee  games, Hunabpu lost his head to a night flying bat. Xbalengue found the carapace of a turtlr and curved a fake head for Hunahpu. Dennis Tedlock was a bit confused by the Turtle, even though his first thought was that the event had to do with astronomy. He could not justify thousands of seeds falling from the carapace of a turtle, so to make his translation read what was possible, he wrote that a calabasa with many seeds inside, was the best choice he had.

One of the original texts gave a different translation---that when Xbalenque hung thr turtle shell over the "ball court" and threw a rock zt the carapce, it broke into many pieces  just like a thousand seeds.

Those pieces----the debris from the exploding nova, now called a beautiful rose in a tree----the Milky Way. Actually NASA describes the flower created by the remains of the nova, a camillia.

There is more to the description of the blue star nova, who as she was dying,was spinning around so hard that bright colored gasses came out of the star's north and south poles----now called a bi-polar jet wuth the appearance of a knife.

Hunahpu ans Xbalenque arri e in the strtosphere of Earth te (2) years  later in 2008. By that time our earth had been dancing in its orbir for a long while. the comet came from the northwest (the Land of the Dead).

The Mixtec probably saw it, or one of there merchants was near Oregon or Washington stae,or they might have reached southern Canada. They decorated a map found here----on Friday, November 2, 2912's post.  It was so bright that adults woke up at 5 am thinking the had overslept. Their children thought that T-Rex was outside.

That decoration on top of the map shows that Draco, the old North star had died and Orion did NOT have a ranch of the Milky Way behind him. Because it grew after the original event, it was noted in the arc of  thr comet. The arc also shows that it threw an axe between the mountains of Popocatepetl and ixtacuihatl. That separation became a long sheer thrust from Baja California to thr Puerto  Rican trench in the Atlantic Ocean.

Enoughb saiD. I hope you all enjoy the stary.  Oh  and yes great waves did cover the mountain tops burying the wooden manikins and melted the clay who almost survived.

3-Constellations or ONE

A long time ago, I had a class which insisted on this book as an excellent Sky reference. I bought it and thought no more about it. Until. . .:
Terrence Dickenson (1998, 20-21)
[Compliments of the Hubble Space Telescope]
I noticed another set of figures next to it on page 20. The figures indicated just where we, as our world, is located in our Galaxy. Only our Earth and other planets were not visible, only our Sun in the myriad of stars in the spiral.
Hubble could only "locate" our Sun near the end of
a well-defined spiral of stars.
Fast forward almost twenty years----"

Nuttall Codex 
The Blue Lady Who Spins Herself

NASA put up on there website a short video of the McNeil's Nebula where a bi-polar jet star was preparing to explode in a few centuries, years, or months.  NASA believed that it was a new star in the process of being born, but the Popol Vuh was very explicit about the games of Hunahpu and Xbalenque. The narration tells of a knife emerging from the ball during the first game, that was supposed to kill Hunahpu. The ball was supplied by their opponents in Xibalba.

The image of a knife was the image of the revolving red ball spewing gas from both the North and the South poles, colored blue within the McNeil Nebula.The north jet would be the haft of the knife and the south half the blade that was to kill. Hunahpu, with the magic of mythology, evaded the "knife" and the games continued, even though the Twins had lost both games.
Her Name
 [With the Date Two Reed beside the Blue Lady]
The name of the lady was, as the above glyph: a macaw, with a crest that appears to be fingers, a large triple circle with a blue center, a red area around the blue, a row of debris, and  an outside layer of stars. A coincidence I did not notice. Again I ignored it for a few more years.

In 2002, I found myself wanting to do something else. I learned to spin thread on a spindle. I spent a lot of time making my own wooden spindles and I thought I was doing fine.  Then, completely by accident, I acquired a 36-inch LeClerc  loom and all its equipment, literally in pieces. When I closed the door on the mess, I swore I would never enter that room again.  But. . . . . . I finally did.

I spent some time fixing it, repairing a broken frame for the heddles along with making a list of parts that I did not have for the loom. I spent less than the $100.00 I had paid for the loom itself, and figured I had something of value. So I also learned to weave.

A heavy poncho, some pillows and purses, and  felted pictures on top of two woven pieces that turned out wrong. I learned that "thread" was an important item in the world.

It was what was important, whether it was cloth or a story about myths. A line of thread could pass through many stories and still carry the main thoughts of the original text.  Weaving teaching formatting of texts?. . . . Now that is weird.

It was not until a few years after drawing out the lady in black and white, putting her into a text or two about astronomy----and thinking I had gotten very smart----did I realize that the lady was saying something as a picture that I should look into.

I started to explore the elements of the picture. The first thing I recognized was that the lady was not spinning thread! Oh, sure, she had a full cop on her spindle, but there was no thread extended to her other hand. She also had two stars in the band around her head; the Twins as they passed by her position as SHE herself was spinning?

The atl-atl (spear) by her side, was interesting also.  There were NO spear glyphs for dates, but this was definitely a spear with two dots attached.  Two Spear???? 

When I checked through some really expert books by Robert Williams and John Pohl, I could only find Two Reed next to the lady, who still had the spear next to her. Why? Robert Williams was the calendar-keeper for the Nuttall Codex and it seems that her calculations indicated that Two Reed was the correct designation for that implied date, but without the spear tip.

H.m.m.m.m. Another form of alterations during the Conquest of Mexico to texts known as glyphs? Researching Two Reed further, I found that it was the main glyph on the famous Calendar-stone of the Aztecs.

It was the lynch-pin date of a disaster shown and described in the four quarters of that calendar. The written information came directly from INAH and fit the iconography of the glyph perfectly.

Now, I was getting somewhere. What about the bird, was it Seven Macaw of the Popol Vuh?  What did the fingers as its crest mean?  More time was wasted. It seems that visual glyphs need some outside crafts to keep the mind occupied until the back part of the mind can relocate other pertinent information.

The first thing that appeared on the horizon was that Peru had the same Summer Triangle, but instead of Deneb being the apex of the triangle, the stars had shifted so that Vega was at the apex. In  Peru, the Summer Triangle was associated with the llamas and their kids. But why?
As the earth spins in its orbit, it also twists
24-hour to give us days of the year.
The three worlds above were done to demonstrate the differences between north straight up and the 23.5 x 2 movement that the whole globe does every year. It also demonstrates what happened to the Milky Way when the 47 degree shift occurred as the stones from the bursting star shifted our whole earth suddenly enough to create three huge waves in different lands near the oceans.

More than one primitive culture claimed that the stars danced and changed places in the sky. Even the Greeks had great stories about the same event. India claimed that there were elephants falling from the sky. However, they neglected to inform us that the original text read "stones as large as elephants fell from the sky."

That pesky little phrase "as large as" was left out to impress the children and naive grownups of elephants who actually had wings that were eaten by the crocodiles after they landed near the rivers. After Hunahpu and Xbalenque died naturally, they were placed in the sky as Gemini. And the 400 boys who had wanted to kil Zipacna in the grave-pit joined the Twins as their companions. 

Four Hundred boys, or better, 400 stars appeared on the horizon all at once with the Twins. And in the Aztec lore, 400 refers to 1,000's or more star that were seem suddenly in the sky overhead.

The three worlds show what would happen if our earth switched by 47 degrees and one can see that even the Milky Way changed from being around the equator to stand ajar by 23.5 degrees both north and south of the equator. We called the two sections the "Tropic of Cancer" (north) and the "Tropic of Capricorn'" (south).

That is what changes the location of the Summer Triangle's apex from Deneb to Vega. What would happen if it changed again as it went further south?

It seems further south, it becomes the Compass, a different constellation altogether where the "Hand of God" is just another blue Nebula in the sky. But with the Blue Lady that spun herself around in the sky, why was she identified with the Hand (four fingers) in Seven Macaw's crest? 

Since Seven Macaw was a strong  image in the glyphs, we have then, an anomaly of 1,000's of parsecs (Kilometers in astronomy to consider; that if we could make a cube of a  section of the spiral we are in (as in the second picturee at the begining of this text) and rotate it just like our earth rotates, both in its yearly orbit and its 24-hour daily spin, 

Then we could match all the stars we could see in the first picture in their proper distances from each other. we just might be able to turn the cube slow enough to see if the Blue Lady (Tlatecuhtli, for that is her name), Seven Macaw, the Summer Triangle, both in Mexico and in Peru and the Compass are the same single constellation as seen at different angles within the cube.

If I were an astronomer I might try such an enormous task, but I am not, nor do I want to be one. I will leave that for the astronomer who dares to be different.

Maya Glyph Forum XXIInd March 1998

Page II-47 has an interesting statement by Nikolai Grube and Simon Martin, two Mayistas at the University of Texas at Austin that year.

It reads:
                          "The link between Venus and warfare immediately brings the        
                           Dresden Codex to mind, where the Venus pages show darts
                           raining down from the star to spear humankind below."

I have checked the Dresden and find no such items raining down enus from any star, not even Venus, the planet. There is on a blanket in the Magliabecchiano Codex a description similar to the text above, but it is not connected to a text with spears.


A Blanket: A Magliabecchiano
Codex Version.
The spear heads above the bird [Seven Macaw] are of obsidian, naturally, but they are stones that will cut even mountains. There are blue-tipped flames down under the strung-up bird, who is screaming as loud as an eagle.

The blue-tipped flames are noted in the Popol Vuh by Dennis Tedlock in his second edition (and in his first edition) but the fires that came before the stones were noted as the "Rains of Resin" or the "Rains of Turpentine." The dust that fell from the comet stones were very hot and stung like hornets or stinger bees. People and animals ran into shelters; homes where they thought they would be safe.

However, the hot dust set fire to the roofs and the daub and wattle walls of the Maya houses. All then ran desperatelly for the Caves in the mountains nearby. The Caves, according to Tedlock, were shut in the faces of the 'people of clay' and the 'wooden manikins' clamouring to get into the caves on the mountainside. All died when the flood covered even the mountain tops.

The gods then created a third type of man, formed from the massa of ground corn which have existed since that time.  The Dresden does tell the story, but it is better read in the Madrid Codex, pages 103 to 112.

The Dresden, on the other hand, gives a wonderful picture of the birth of the twins which has the appearance of the "venus" glyph. [D-47b} It is located as a hanging element on the head of a skeletal figure from Xibalba, who is pretty obviously the Death God.

The "venus" glyph is no more than the Twins, Hunahpu and Xbalenque coming from the Land of the Dead in the West, that the Popol Vuh identified as the home of Xibalba.

Even the poorest Maya, knows that the west is were people go when they die. The Mixtec know that the Great Sun that came out of the West was just a comet that happened to split the Mountains Popocatepetl and Ixtacuihual and they indicated such on their map of the area in and around Oaxaca.

The Oaxaca map [here March 23, 2013] shows the top decoration of that map:

The Fifth Sun With its Last Trajectory Across the Mixtec Sky
When this map is taught, most of the emphasis is on the Dynastic list of rulers that is on the left side of the map. The decoration above shows a blazing sun in the northwest corner over a cradle, indicating the birth of that "sun." We have just learned that the "sun" is a comet from the west, the Land of the Dead.

So this map is also a star chart with a living comet that went overhead. The cartographer of this map was Three Dog, a gentleman whose parents sent him south to learn about astronomy. He can be found in the Bodley Codex.[Lamina 22-26]

In short, when a scholar takes a codex and does not compare it to any text or traditional lore, he has lost 9/10ths of the ball game. There can be no understanding of the glyphs until all the parts begin to match the traditional learning of the natives.

Turmoil in the Sky

A Blanket: A Magliabecchiano
Codex Version.
There are a variety of stelae in the Maya area that show the same turmoil in the sky as the above blanket. However, the blanket, in color and glyphs, show the sky closer to the Popol Vuh version found on pages 68 to 74. (Tedlock, 1996)

The beginning of the story starts by explaining the clay manikins will soften and dissolve [as in water] so not to worry about them.  The next set of manikins were made of wood.  The gods decided that the second set was just as useless as the clay men. They decided to end their existence with a flood that was high enough to cover the mountain tops. [This is according to the information given by INAH regarding the Aztec Sun Stone]

So first came the burning fire  and rain of resin [of turpentine]. The fiery dust soon became large stones that began to fall on the land and into the water of the Gulf and of the Atantic Ocean.  Larger ones fell into the Puerto Rican trench and caused a sheer thrust to pass through the land of the Aztecs. It separated the two mountains Popocatepetl and ixtacuihuatl on its way to Baja California, and met the cleft between the mainland and Baja that is still called the San Andreas Fault. The water between the two pieces of land, because of the outflow of the Colorado River, became the Red [mud] Sea. [Cortes sailed on the Mar Vermejo {Red Sea} soon after the conquest of Tenochtitlan.]
Stela 22: Izapa - Turmoil in the Sky
V. Garth Norman: Plate 36

Stela 67: Izapa - After the Event
V. Garth Norman: Plate 54
And the stones that fell into the water in the Gulf of Mexico bounded up and down until they sped in different directions until water of the Gulf cooled the stones enough that they lay dormant on the sea bed. But not until several gods were delivered to different places, like Huitzilopochtli to Lake Texcoco; a fire ball roaring through the mountain pass, as a beast with spines of fire on his back, to Cuzco, Peru and several stones landed in the Pampas of Argentina, grazing the curved land as if boys were skipping the great stones over the of waters of a lake or of a pond. Argentina too, had myths about those stones, that tell of  a fiery beast that sped westward.

Both pictures above show a boat in two different situations with the same snaggle-toothed man under the same sky-roof slanted at 23.5 degrees. The turmoil in the sky is very apparent in Stela 22. All the dragon-serpents have squared eyes. That is to say: They are amazed at what is happening in the Sky above. This is a Teotihuacan modismo: "Mis ojos son cuadrados." that I was fortunate to hear and understand during a dinner one day in Tapachula. Chiapas.

Stela 67 was partially destroyed, so the roof there is only half visible, but the angle is still the same. It shows the rainbow of the sky, which is the promise of no more burning rains. It does not show the Egyptian Ankh, More likely Snaggle-tooth is holding two of the sky-serpents. The sky-bands for the gods below each of the stelae are in the helmets of both versions. The fish are only necessary to show that the waves were of the sky [salt*] river, the Milky Way.

Stela 67 is the event after the great turmoil that has a Stela on page 42 of the Uxmal Official Guide [dated March 15, 1978] showing the very same sky disturbance, with men dying under the platforms and a fiery roof {of feathers**] overhead with large-beaked individuals at the side viewing the action.

The geologists still insist the event happened about 65 million years ago. But no one can explain how mankind could recall something that occurred before they populated the earth. It seems that the Iridium layer that killed all the marsh animals, is the culprit here. The iridium layer is star materials that fell as burning resin or turpentine of the Popol Vuh.  

Therefore, the star-dated materials had to be from prehistoric or pre-creation times. No telling how long that star material was heating up in a spinning star in the process of dying before it turned completely blue and exploded. As a result it met the double comet head-on as it came from the northwest, the Land of the Dead, shown in the Dresden Codex [D-47b ] with its complete story, just as it was told in the Popol Vuh.

** "Feathers" indicate fire in the Aztec glyphs.
