Two Halves of the Moon



The moon has meant many different  things to many different people atund the world. It was romance; dangerous when in an Eclipse; or a symbol of Aphrodite, goddess of love.

Some geologists believe that the moon had splt off from the earth when it was in process of becoming a planet.

Other disciplines feel that the moon was instrumental in causing a lot of grief in the world as the well-known tale when Aphrodite (the Moon) met Aries (Orion) for a tryst.

Immanuel Velikovsky believed that. two planets----Mars and Venus----actually spun out of the orbits located on eithe side of the Earth and had a battle [or a love affair]  in the sky. However, it is impossible for two planet in their own orbits, to jump across another orbital planet----our Earth----and then return to their own orbits safely.

Even so, it  seemed to be true because the other stars (gods) laughed so hard they fell off their thrones. And, while still laughing, they returned to thrones that were not their own.

But it was only Earth that saw the star gods change their positions in the sky----in other words;  our own orbit was jolted so that humans could see that constellation positions had changed and new constellations had replaced the more familiar ones.
 
The  Aborigines of Australia tell us that there was a certain kind of a song that their god, "was singing; louder and louder until the stars began to dance and arrange themselves in time to Pururiki's song"

I Was Wrong About the Trecena?

The Serpent Pages of the
Madrid Codex M-12 through M-18
First: the first half of the Madrid Codex is datable as Post-1584. The reason is the first day of the year is the glyph "Imix" was put place by the Church scholars for that year.
"Imix" was taken from July 26th and said to be the very first day of that year. The first month of that year----taken from February 8th---became the first time a "month" was used in the Maya languages.

The 1955 book that dates came from is called. "Por la Sen[y]al de Hunab Ku." It is basically a Mayan Hstory book.

However, it appears to use a shred of the cyphering code from medeival times. The
dates. It never was in  the location where it was expected and so, it was very difficult to find again.

The above calendar from the Madrid Codex, with its distraction of the curving serpents, and attached together one page at a time, is basically to illustrate the manner in which the calendar was used horizantally.

It aso is being used here to show that the count of 4-days per week does not work in a 52-week year.

The count of 20-day months matches only. to a TEN-month count, at the eleventh momth, it does not make a good ending. It can not add up to 365-days, or even their original count of 360-days.

But at least it does show us show the vertical count of the 1583/84 proposed Trecena was to have been used in the horizantal layout for the old 360-day year.

The four glyphs are from the first week of a 20-day count that rotates constantly to indicate the end of six months of their 18-month year.
In fact. Every "week" of the year rotates exactly the same way. each in its own column.

Such a strange count-down allows for three "years" of effective husbandry of the milpas; one year to. farm the land, and two years for the land to lie fallow and recuperate for the next three year cycle.

The four glyphs also inform the farmer the month [glyph] to burn; to plant; to reap, and the month to celebrate a good harvest.

The Trecena was created for the European farmer's mind----not the Maya. The fact that it works perfectly vertically but not horizantally tells us that it is only an example to use for the Maya quarter-year farmng method [3 months or 90 days] that allowed them time for building a new house for a neighbor and to thank their Creator at the end of a good year.

Star-Dragons and Maya Calendars

China 1985:
Two Fire Dragons Battle over a Ball of Fire
or Two Comets AND an Exploding Nova
 or Two Sky Ball Players
O
Our Constellations. (Winter/Summer)
Our Spinning Earth as Earth Orbits
Around the Sun.

Why is the math not workin for the. Maya Calendar Systems? There is no way for such complex calculus to work, even when it has proven itself to be the most time-saving and efficient way to go backwards in time. the is no modern astronomy record that shows a complete life of any one star or nebula. No astronomer has  lived long enough to study a single sky element. Now stars or star events are discovered daily by one or another person. Since a star event can take hundreds of years to become what it is meant to be; that is hundreds of years of recording the same information year after boring year.

The problem is in ancient times changes that range from 445-days to correct the agricultural year [Caesar's solution]; or the 38-year difference between Spain and Portugal [that allowed Columbus to sail with Vespucci] thus giving Vespucci the privilege of naming our lands and Columbus the privilege of discovering half of it.], a telescope allows no time for dawdling. There must be money made available for upkeep and if nothing is different for such a long time, supporters disappear.

Math to investigate past eras do not keep people interested either. Providing past data has to be accurate also. Dating errors all around the world when explorers tried to prove they had "discovered" the remains of the oldest humanoid in the world; to our computer generated time alteration [a 'nano' second] That will take eons to become viable.

The Julian Calendar that count backward into time may be the best way to create an ancient record, but unless all the date changes over time are accounted for, how can anyone ensure real dates are being generated?

One problem that arises is that One Imix was given to the meso-american people by the Church as their date for the first day of the New Year.  The European calendar day of that glyph was February 8, 1584 but it became the January 1st of that year.

Since no date names had ever been given, the Church decided that such names would assist researchers later to compare the two systems. As it is, The Book of the Years by Edmonson stated:

"Mixtec Month Names remain linguistically' undocumented." (1968, 211)

Zero Pop was given as the name of the first month of the year as July 26. 1583. Yet, it also became the first month (January) of 1584 in Mexico by Church mandate.

H.m.m.m.m Between February 8 and July 26 is almost six months. Six months are 180 days for one-half a year. It appears to me that is where the missing 120 might be hiding in just one more twisted idea of adjusted time. 

The TRECENA is a paltry, insignificant error in compiling information about dates. Even so, with the gross obvious difference of saying that the number 52 equaled Years; not Weeks, as it should have been.

First: To use the Madrid Codex Serpent pages calendar as a Trecena starting place it only leads to even more improbable errors.

If one would work out the whole thirteen numbers as intended vertically; it becomes obvious that even the 20 day count does not coincide with meso-american date clearly post-1583 AD since One  Imix is the first day of the 52-WEEK cycle.

Secondly: If one would do the 4-day weeks, as in the Madrid, using the Trecena as inferred there, its vertical layout gives you [starting with Imix] three sets of four days down ending in Ahaw. This competes 12 lines down. The 13th line then repeats the first line begining a new round.
As the 13th line repeats the line starting with Imix to repeat the cycle to the third set again. . . . and . . . again. . .  just as many year elements you care to compute.

This automatic repeat function then adds the first row of a year by repeating the Imix row again across the page horizontally which creates a "monster year."

In this instance to use the 13 count against the day names has no value as a counter of days. If the counter was more accurate----with a twelve-count repeated normally----it would not help in the 360-day [as a 6.9-day week] year  or during a 365.25-day year [as a 7.1-day week] year.

A true 7-day week inferred 90-day quarterly count is not possible in a 30-day month of 20-days plus 10. The Julian Calendar System then would always be more accurate.

An Approved Star Map of the Catastrophe


Stela 22 at Izapa:
The Square-Nose Beastie on top of the Roof of the Sky.
Athough the above  is a glphic "map" it is not considered to be a historical one. It does  apear that a lot is going on in the skies over Izapa, in Chiapas, Mexico. What did the Square-Nose Beastie have to so with it?
There he sits on the sky top with his nose awry and his square eye.

Well, for one, he "ate the stars of the Milky Way" and made a path for the bees to attack the humans on earth. There are star-creatures in the "water" under the serpent-held-up "boat."

It would be great if we had a map of the event; or at least a visual portrayal of the event. But first we have to know from where the threat came to our earth. Then it would produce a sort of a time-line if the dates with no month names could ever become a good reference point.

View below is the direction the event came from. If the god is the Death God, then it must be from the Land of Dead in the west.
Dresden -b Venus glph emerhing
From the death headdress with bells
Dresden-c: Venus glyph Man
from Sun and Moon Eclipse
View to the right [or below] tells us it is a special sky event that had eclipsed both sun and the moon.

There is a person in the Bodley Codex of the Mixtecs, who traveled below the Equator. His name was Three Dog.
Bodley Codice: 26-I Rght
He arrived at the Observatory on Sandy River.
Bodley Codex:  25-II Left
His name was Three Dog. His parents sent him south to learn about astronomy so the kingdom would be safe under the guidance of the gods.  Except for a few encounters in the Bodley, very little is known about him.
Bodley Codex: 4-II
There is one item that does stand out about the country: Two splitting mountains appear side by side. Each has a different year glyph beside it. One is dark and the other seems to be lighter.

There is a copy of a map of the Mixtec area to be found on blog March 23, 2013. One particular area that has been mentioned in text was thought to be an old area of Apuala called Lotepec. East was at the top as a brilliant flaming sun on the left side of the arc that supposedly indicated the lost puebla.  
Map of Tezacoalco and Apuala. Oxaca
Benson Library at the University of Texas at Austin.
Yes, the sun is there but, if it came from the Northwest, it has to be a comet with the cradle of its birth immediately below it.

Next to it seems to be the constellation Cancer, then Gemini. The Broken Tree of the Milky Way is next with a very bright star to the right if it, called Vega. A small beehive is underneath it, i.e.: Ophiuchus.

A serpent (a very dead Draco) is wrapped around a new tree rising behind a god or a constellation called Orion.

Next to what might be the decapitated head of Draco is a glyph called Three Dog. In front of it ia an axe hanging above a mountain to be split in half.

Modern geology in 1964 has identified a "Shear" separation between Popocatepetl and Ixtacuhuat, the two best-known volcanoes of Central Mexico, that extends from the Puerto Rican Trench in the Atlantic Ocean all the way to Baja Calfornia.

The round map that the star arc is attached to contains the nsme of the astronomer-cartographer, Three Dog. Both the central circular area and the star arc above it were officially approved by Church censors.

Therefore, in site of the mis-information given about the sky chart, both the land map and the sky chart are in the official map corpus of Mexico.

So we have one of the earlest historical sky charts of Mexico that agrees with the Bodley Codex.  Who ever put it on top of the Apuala map wanted us to know the specific dates involved in the splitting of the land. With the new calendar calculations to be presented in this blog. Maybe the true date of the catastrophe can finally be known

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.
Drawn by Matthew Looper, author of Lightning Warrior (2003)
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.

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





Sitting on top of sky changing roof

The question is:  Does N-18 come before N-17 or is it where it belongs? [And when did the Square-Nose Beastie join into the Turmoil in the sky?]

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.#
