Conflicting Essays in scholarship which have been the most engaging research job I have ever done. I have also added, over the years, queries about our "dated" geology with their "computerized" confirmations together with climate changes denied since 1963. The Ten-O'clock News have been telling us to change our clocks for DSL and back again BUT no one as noticed it has been changed, more than a few years ago, from March 31 and October 31, to a week or so earlier or even a week or so later.

Two Versions of A Nebula

A Strange 1987 Copyright 
A Correct Dover Edition N-34 BR
  These two pictures are almost exactly the same. However, one was copyright in 1987 and the one on the left was printed by Dover Publications in 1975; while in Austria in 1992, the Nuttall Codex was made as a facsimile;. The Explicativo or book, was put into a estuche [case] made in Mexico City.
  * * * * * * * * * *

            Apparently, the Explicativo (book) was created and explained by a person who knew what the iconography was supposed to mean. [The whole reference for the book will be below for this Page N-34-BR  #3o. [Tercero] La Señora 2 Caña (Reed) - Quetzal de Jade.
Having the same red circle and blue [hand] center
as Seven Macaw and his [finger crest]  and turquoise blute teeth
            To call the bird "Quetzal" might be correct, but the red/blue ring above his head is indicative of a nebula in the Constellation Compass, near the South Pole.  The "Hand of God," so-named by NASA, has the same circle of red stars above the hand has the "Quetzal" with the Blue skirted Spinner Lady. This may indicate that the Lady is not only Seven Macaw, but also the "Hand of God" as a different orientation of the constellation called the Summer Triangle, having two more names:  the Northern Cross and Cygnus, the Swan).

         It was called the "Hand of God" in Maya and was not only in the Nuttall Codex and in various other codices. It also is carved on a Persian monument that may be located in Rome, Italy since the author G. Sesti of the book,  The Glorious Constellations lived there, and not in Persia. Since he did not identify where the monument was located, it is a 'sometimes' indication that the source is where the author lived.

          Erasmus and Thomas More also knew about the "Hand of God" through a painter named Holbein who painted a family portrait of Thomas More as a result of a referral from Erasmus.

           Charlemagne, back a few centuries also was aware of the "Hand of God" nebula.. Charlemagne decided when the "Hand of God" came together with a new branch of the Milky Way. He felt it was just a longer version of the familiar one that circled the world once upon a time only at the Equator it was 360 degrees as a perfect circle for a year of 360 days.  

              Napoleon was yet another  Emperor in Europe that used the Hand of God as his staff of authority.  It was just the same as the multiple Maya staffs used to indicate authority in the Yucatán.

          Why did the Graz version scratch over the beak of the "Quetzal"? Was it because the "Quetzal" was just Seven Macaw with a different orientation [or sky view] to the world? It does include the great red circle of stars around the finger of the Hand of God. H.m..m.m..

               A long time ago, my dentist was telling me about his vacation to New Zealand. On the way back, his wife was looking our of the window of the plane and mentioned that Orion was up-side down. When he queried "why"? She told him that all stars south of the Equator are shifted to an up-side down (or at leasst a 90 degree shift from the northern view.

                My research seems to include such statements, because when I looked in up on sky charts in Terrence Dickenson's (1999,    ) Nightwatch: Charlemagne was correct.  The reason was that when the world shifted, the Milky Way actually became a front and a back branch still connected at both ends by its original circular position, once spanning our Equator. But our tilted spin changed the 360 degree circle to a 365.25 oval and that stretched the ends away from our comfortable view of the stars around us.

          It seems that now with our 365.25 day/degree year, created by a shift of 47 degrees to the southeast. According to the Popol Vuh, the Earth was 'sort of" buried in the stars of a single spiral of our galaxy during the beginning of their time schedule. It was only half-a-sun that was seen in those days.
These two views of our Galaxy only points to our Sun.
Our seven Planets, which includes Earth are insignificant  in the Galaxtic
           This gave our world a new view of the Milky Way.  Our view is now that of an upper register (for summer) and a lower register (for winter). Our North Star is only exact North when the Earth shifts from the Tropic of Cancer to the Equator a span of 23.5 degrees and then continues on to the Tropic of Capricorn near Peru at the southern 23.5 degrees.

With North straight up in the center, it was not
necessary to include            
             The whole concept here, leads one into a realm of more intensive research with many more questions that can be answered now that we have computerized programs that can now be created as 3-D cubes.

K-579—An Interesting Defeat

K-579 God N being blinded by The Hero Twin; Hunahpú near the Cosmic Tree
Commonly known as the Milky Way.

          This defeat will encompass the whole corpus of codices, manuscripts and glyphs that when combined will answer more questions than are asked. In other words, no one really wants to know why god N is being threatened by Hunahpú.  It is so much more useful to one's 'Intellect' to leave a question unanswered and to give others a chance to guess. It makes conversations more lively and much more interesting.

           In looking at the above scene, I came to a conclusion that there might be a real connection between God L and God N. They might be the exact same god with a set of word glyphs from the other side of the mountain, or from across the border where the languages are more or even less explicit. Such spoken language differences can be duplicated in a glyph language base also. The reference points for one area can evolve to a different set of referrals using a local animal or bird to explain the very same star event.

          The above is only one example of a star event that refers to an event that occurred in the ocean (conch shell) on land (the serpent) and in the sky (Hunahpú) as a blazing comet. that came too near a dying star, the Great Star.

         Here we will call the old god, God L.  The vulture at the end of the name glyph  means only that the eyes of God N. This is illustrated clearly in the Dresden Codex on Lamina #03. A victim of the vulture is losing his eyes at the same time that the Cosmic Tree is being split down the middle. The text with the dates have been conveniently deleted so that future generations will never know if it could happen again.  if one has a time line of some sort, a trajectory of a comet can be calculated and the time it might return would be expected.

         Once the vulture did blind God N, he then appeared  with the Jaguar of the Night Sky on Lamina M-39c of the Madrid Codex.  One must also take note of the 'radish' ear spool   of the one blindedand the two fireball dots on both sides of the Jaguar. Other codices run the gamut of displaying the Cosmic Tree split in half,  broken or fallen. Gods emerge from the Tree, or there is a dragon at its roots.

          The 'radish' took on a life of celebration in the Noche de los Rabanos in Oaxaca near the Christmas Holidays. And it also went south of the Equator to the mountain tops of Peru, where two 'radishes' the same shape of the one in the Madrid, are displayed on the Nasca plains in the Andes.

          The "venus" glyph is in the side panel and in the title,of the above vase so one can expect that the Great Star will destroy God N, not with a lancet, but with a good strong fiery spear coming from the Great Star [mentioned by  Sahagún, Vol. II, Book VII, chapter III]  with a second reference to its actual location as found in a modismo:  ''el signo del toro'  in Chapter IV, number IV  as the wagon or Carro. Again, one can see from other illustrations of this event, a scorpion below the Cosmic Tree, a bird high in the tree and Hunahpú getting ready to use his blowgun to dislodge the bird. Behind the tree Xbalenque is probably hiding, but he shows his jaguar  paw on the trunk. Is he waiting to collect the debris from the  bird?

          At the end of the next chapter,  [Chapter IV page 264)]  the 'Carro'  (Wagon] has a defined identification as:
A aquellas estrellas, que en algunas partes se llaman el Carro, esta gente las llama Escorpión, porque tienen figura de escorpión o alacrán, y así se llaman en muchas partes del mundo.                    [ Ibid (1982, 178)]
          It reads: "those stars that en some parts are called, the Cart, the people call it Scorpio instead. because they have a figure similar to the  name scorpion [or alacrán]. so in this terminology in many other parts of the world."

           Not only is this story continued within the Maya, the Aztec, the Mixtec worlds, but even the Olmecs had the same tale to tell.  Quite frankly, the story went clear around the world at different latitudes and longitudes, with a plethera of strange new words to describe the event.

A vase with God L, the Rabbit in the arms of the Moon
          God L is half kneeling/half sitting in front of the rabbit being held by the Moon.  In Kaye Almera Read's(1998) book,  Time and Sacrifice in the Aztec Cosmos. Dr. Read included the poem about the Birth of the Fifth Sun.  In it the sky is blazing red for quite some time, and finally, a human, took a rabbit and threw it at the Tezcatlipoca, wrecking his face. (1998, 55. V, 55to- VI, 20)

          Somewhere in the Maya High and Lowlands, the story changed from a male Moon god to a female Moon goddess, that we now see in Justin Kerr's vase K-5166. It is God L who has had his jaw broken, but not as a Moon, instead, as Seven Macaw had his jaw damaged by Hunahpú's blowgun. So here, he seems to have acquired three names, not two: Tezcatlipoca, God L, Seven Macaw  and God N.

        Since Hunahpú and his brother, Xbalenque, not only damaged Seven Macaw's jaw with the blowgun, they were also instrument at his death, when they removed his metallic eye decorations as in K-0579 and his turquoise teeth in K-5166 above. So there is no conflict between God L and God N.

         The Moor Goddess has now taken over the markings of the blazing Sun god temporarily. She is now spotted lke Nanahuatzin  who peels off her diseased skin in Kaye Almere Read's version of The Birth of the Fifth Sun in her book: Time and Sacrifice in the Aztec Cosmos. The "tossed away flesh" is akin to the sun flares that shoot out from the sun periodically today.

           The Moon glyph under the arm of the Moon Goddess has two or three circles in the curve of the moon insignia on her shoulder. The first warrior behind God L is a very red man {of fire] with a moon glyph on his shoulder. He has no circles in the curve of that moon glyph. It is possible to say there, that the event of the arrival of the Rabbit and the sun spots on the moon are in the process of occurring since it was because of a red sky that  a human tossed the rabbit at Tezcatlipoca, as he became  a dirty sooty Moon God, second to the Sun Nanahuatzin.

         The next Moon glyph carrier to the left, is a moon face  which whistles. It is similar to a bird at Rio Blanco with one raptor head facing forward and another just below on its neck, facing backwards as Ehécatl's great [comet] wind. He has four circles in the curve of his Moon glyph.

         The next man has  half of his face blackened. An indication of the burning turpentine or resin that fell as rain from the sky.  His Moon Glyph contains three circles on the curve of his Moon glyph.

         The last figure in line is a complete and happy-looking skeleton. His Moon Glyph contains seven or eight circles on the curve of his Moon glyph.


            Each moon glyph has a fixed number of circle on their curves. I might indicate the number of moons that occurred during the time, that particular entity was active in the sky. 

               The most surprising part of this blog spot is that God L acquired so many different names as the sky passed from one set of moon appearances to the next. It is appropriate that artists of that era were also allowed free expressions in their art styles. The modern world yet has to achieve the Maya art systems.
