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.

October 12, 1493 Most famous Feast Day of All

     Christopher Columbus sailed to Chios when he was about 23 or 24 (1) Married Felipa Moñiz Perestrello of Lisbon, daughter of navigator who found Port Santo (Madeira) and left many charts and nautical instruments. He went with his brother Bartholomeo in 1488 to John II of Portugual and Henry VII of England with his ideas of India through the Atlantic Ocean but was not successful. (1) 

     Christopher Columbus had sailed before to Guinea in Africa and to the Northlands. Eventually, as a good God-fearing Christian, he took his son to the monastery at Rabida, (2) and convinced a monk that he knew where the Indies was located. It is more likely that he had been a prisoner, and his son was held hostage, but there is only the beautiful tale that Columbus went to the monastery for food and assistance.

    Eventually, the monk, and Columbus convinced the King and Queen of Spain that the goal of the Indies as a possibility. The people involved in this great adventure across unknown seas were once placed on a modern map of the Galapagos. The islands bore the names of the king, queen, the monk, and the person who supplied the funds for the journey. The map was changed somewhere in the 1970's or a few years earlier. My Geography class donated the old geography book, (Goode, J.P. (1957)  World Atlas Physical, Political, and Economic [Tenth ed.] Chicago, Illinois: Rand McNally & Company) because the new names replaced those tell-tale island names.

     During the time Columbus was roaming around Europe looking for a patron, many heretics were  to take a pilgramage to Santiago de Compostela. One of the stops many made before going to the Cathedral of Santiago, was a small church at Mugia, Spain. It was the Church of Nuestra Señora del Barco, Our Lady of the Boat. It is pretty obvious that many pilgrims died on the journey for lack of f money for food and housing, but those who succeeded in making the arduous journey received  a special blessing from Our Lady.  Her feast day was and still is October 12.

     Now, where did I see that date?  Oh, yes, it is today. The day that Christopher Columbus discovered the Americas. What better way to warn the pilgrims who could afford passage on ships to flee the Inquisition by crossing the ocean to a safe haven, except the date of a very obscure church on the northwestern coast of Spain.  In that way, all pilgrims would have heard the news about the Americas and be forewarned that the Inquisition was going to be there soon also.

     In old maps of Texas and Mexico, there are colonies called Nueva Viscaya, and people in the western states of North America, that claim to have Hebrew ancestors. These maps are Texan maps, but extend into Mexico proper. Interesting, more so because of some insignificant details, the names have been brushed aside by history.  Hurray for October 12 and Our Lady of the Boat.

The Language of the Seven Caves

     In a dissertation of Professor T. Anderson, the Language of the Seven Caves is called  Zuya, which may not be a "language" just a series of conundrums or riddles to give information to those who knew the original story by heart.

     The first conundrum about a cosmic breakfast and is the Summer Triangle (or the Northern Cross, or Cygnus; since all three constellations are the same star configuration.).

     The Lance [that is the Cross] as in the Milky Way is informing you of the location of the Sun-like Seven Macaw, not the real sun at all, just a new blazing nova. In the meantime, the Hand of God, [check NASA for it, if you have not read my blog entries: it is a recently discovered nebula by NASA]. The Creator "Hand of God" Nebula created the "green" jaguar as the baby jaguar of the Justin Kerr's vases ("Green Jaguar" means a "new night sky" here)  by sending the Twins on their journey for the ball game in the sky.

     The comet that came from the Hand of God nebula, is just an astronomy story of the Creation myth. On one vase the changes in the sky are inferred by a brilliant star on the tail of the baby jaguar.(But not Venus for heavens sake.) The star is just Hunahpú [and his brother, Xbalenque] who were born from the spittle though the mouth of their father's skull [NGC7000] located near Deneb who then traveled through the magical star tree called the Milky Way to their future mother, Blood Moon. the spindle Lady identified in the Nuttall Codex.(N-34)

     I cannot explain it any better. Professor Anderson will do a different version, nevertheless, the complete story occurs in the Popol Vuh and the above conundrum is just a variation on that theme, in fact all the conundrums seem to be a part of the PV.

     As for the Third question: the "large" house". . . . does it have two central posts?  If so, it is Hunahpú planting the corn in the house of Grandmom. The two legs of the Milky Way . . .  that hold up the sky . . . The Tree of the Beautiful Rose and the Tree of the Warrior. This element is the Aztec version of the "raising of the sky." The roof of the sky as illustrated on Izapa Stela 22 has a 23.5 deg. slant.  Stela 22 is a record of the turmoil [its creation] in the sky.  It uses the modismo (idiomatic phrase] of "square eyes" and a flat Milky Way. The water gods here are of no account.

      There is a second Stela, #67, which infers the rainbow sent by God was to say there would be no more disasters like the sky event.  On this stela,  the Milky Way Tree is an upside-down water way with the waves on the bottom of the river, not on the top. It is related to how earthly water is absorbed by the Sun and later falls from the clouds as rain. The Elephant Seals of the Pacific Ocean are now the rulers of that segment of the Milky Way. [These seals live in the ocean between Baja California and roam as far south as Tierra del Fuego in South America.] 

     The image of the upside down waves is in part because of the travel path of these sea animals south of the Equator, where our constellations can be found upside-down or at a 90 degree turn. This wave action of the Milky Way then, can be found in another codice (as one of two serpents wrapped around the "Tree." One is water shows as a cloud serpent; the other is fire; as a fire serpent.  The illustration of such a tree can be found in the Selden Codex on page two. The single tree, [as one spiral of our galaxy], is being split in two and becomes both the Tree of the Beautiful Rose (the upper register] and the Tree of the Warrior [Orion in the lower register] of that spiral.

     The Fourth question is the arrival of the Sun (comet from the west) that met the real sun at midday [our noon] like a mirror. Dennis Tedlock gives that explanation in the notes of his translation of the Popol Vuh. Professor Tedlock referred to Eric Thompson who, ”as early as 1933, had translated the same text as 'the [true] sun traveled westward as usual, but appeared to turn around if it had placed a mirror in the mid-day sky, then it went eastward' [back to its home].)  "The [birth of the Fifth] Sun emerged as a mirror in the middle of the noon-time sky" [Tedlock, (1996, 161)]

     However, Venus, the planet, is invisible during the day (Dickenson, (1998) so one can discount the Great Star identification as the Venus Planet completely. The Great Star was so bright, that it was brighter than our normal sun. But mostly, because it had a much lower trajectory than our Sun. Coming from the west, and meeting our normal rising sun in the middle of the day, it overshadowed the sun completely and it appeared that the "comet-sun" returned to the sun's Eastern abode, ready to start a new day in the morning. 

     All of the above are observations I have made about the conundrums of the seven caves, because of previous information about ancient astronomy that I have gleaned over the years. Anyone who has any further input about what I have written, would make it much more interesting since this is just a Blog for experimentation.
