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.

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
Our Constellations. (Winter/Summer)
Our Spinning Earth as Earth Orbits
Around the Sun.

Why is the math not working 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 month 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, the gross obvious difference of saying that the number 52 equaled Years; not Weeks, as it should have been is not so insignificant.. By some super calculus figures, 816 is dividable by 13 and it will equal 52, hence the erroneous 52-year count propounded by all.

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 even though it was when One  IMIX became the first day of the 52-WEEK cycle. The actual first day should have remained IK, not IMIX.

Secondly: If one would do the 4-day weeks, as in the Madrid, using the Trecena as inferred there, its vertical layout gives you [except when one starts with IMIX to the left of IK] three sets of four days down no longer end in Ahaw. It ends, instead, with K'awa'k. This completes 12 lines down vertcally. However, the new IMIX does not complete 52 weeks as it should. because it also has to add in the 5 extra dead days. The 13th line then becomes the first line so it creates a continuous loop [in computer terminology]. It is the beginning of a new twelve-week of "year bearers," for want of a better name.

The IMIX name must then use the 13th row to each set of four to repeat the cycle. . . . and . . . again., just as many three year sets of four days per week you care to compute. The 13th returns to the very first "clearing" of the milpa and burn process.  In Norway, Greenland, Finland and Sweden such agricultural practices are called Swidden farming
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 "lateral year" which cannot make even a 360-day year without adding two extra days to each and every vertical week. Those two extra days per week would be similar to our Saturday and Sunday.

However, in Mesoamerica, they do not signify a day of rest. Those are days when one must fill the various duties of managing village affairs; perform their role for the current festival celebrations.  
Or both men and women could also aid in building a neighbor's house, or even help to celebrate a quincena of a new adult girl child.

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-day week] year or during a 365.25-day year [as a 7-day week] year. The Borgia Codex is the calendar that solved the problem of the 7-day per week; 364-day year with one extra footstep for the 365th day.

A true 7-day week inferred 90-day quarterly 13-week count is not possible in a 30-day month of 20-days plus 10. The Julian Calendar System then would always be more accurate; if it is accurate to begin with. But which accuracy is counted, Hebrew, Muslim, or any one of the multiple Emperors, kings and queens around the world, all of whom [or most of whom] created their own calendar based upon their birthday or the most lucky stars that came after that faulty reading on the days of their births.

Think, research, and write. .  . Good luck
