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.

The Mysterious XIIth Century Evacuation

 The Mysterious XIIth Century Evacuation of the Americas

In Aztec land, histories were rewritten by four elders left behind (by whom?) in Tenochtitlan. Who had given such instructions? This may have been part of the XIIth century evacuation of once useless land, foreign visitors had accepted all up and down the western coast of Mesoamerica.
The twelfth century evacuation has always been a mystery.

The native population had .recovered from their stay in the caves just before the comet Quetzalcoatl arrived with Xolotl trailing behind. At that time. the whole of the east coast had been inundated when Xolotl sacrificed himself so that the  Sovereign Serpent, the Sun could live. The stars had danced with joy, The natives did not even think they had moved too far from their prior locations. The stars seemed to be correct. Stars never moved from their proper sequence; so ”not to worry.” They had just moved to one hour earlier than their usual pace.

Due to the changing of the star patterns in the sky, the natives did not know how to recover their soil so it could be replanted successfully. Seasons no longer arrived on time for planting before the rains? Such information is on the stelae and in the records that have been drawn as codices.

The dattes are given in proper numeric order. As clearly as the numbers are written down, there has been much dispute about how they should be counted. Both Venus and Earth had to be calculated together to find a coefficient with the Planet Venus. It was calculated to be 819 years later that the two planets arrived at the same information that was noted in the first year. Even so, an accidental number emerged at some point. The number was 16 which when divided into the 819 sequence created a proof that a 52-year cycle for the First Fire was a valid conclusion.
However, that is not how a coefficient should be calculated. Even so it made computer-sense for a 52-year cycle. After all, no-one would ever question computer generated charts. If the 819 years when both Venus and Earth were already equalized as the standard. No one would ever look for an accidental “16” when it alone balanced the Earth to [51,1875 or] 52-years so perfectly.

So we will leave that problem for the calendar makers to solve.  At leat, Earth’s year was known to need 365.25-days and Venus was known to need 224.7-days to orbit the Sun. Together they paced each other against the Excel program until these two numbers came together again on line 819. Hooray!
A new type of compost to revive the soil for productive farming was necessary. Swidden agriculture----a slash and burn process----was the most used in other countries. The only catch was that each piece of land had to remain fallow for two years. So that each person needed one milpa of land to clear every three years. An attempt was made for a tone-year wait; however, it could not produce enough maize to sustain a family and still grow enough extra to sell at a good price.

Still, the mystery of the sudden abandonment of those small colonies of stramgers who had helped the natives realign their star views so their farms [milpas] became more productive has not been answered. Would it be in error to look to Europe for the answer; even though the natives had never communicated with the continent before the fifteenth century?

In which country was swidden agriculture used the most? Well, the word iteself is from Old Norse: svithinn, which is the part particple of switha - to burn, to singe. As an English dialect, it remained as Swidden: a burned clearing. By 1951 it was a temporary agricultural process produced by cutting back and burning off vegetative cover.

The Norse Incursions

From the European shores on the Atlantic Ocean, the Vikings were thought to be the very first of the European travelers to come our way. The Ericsson family [Eric the  Red, Leif, and Thorwald] have been determined to have arrived on the coast of Newfoundland or New England, I believe. His brother Thorwald arrived in 1003 AD,  south of New England.

However, when one reads about the early voyages of the Norseman, it was not Leif Ericson who came first, but his father Eric the Red, about 1000 AD. Thorfinn [Porfinn] Karlsefni. was said to have gone to Vinland in 1007 and stayed for three years. The exact date of his voyage is still uncertain. If the chronology of Thorfinn’s saga, another adventurer in the Norse lands, is accepted, Porfinn’s expedition was in 1003-07 or 1007-11. This confusion was duie to the spelling differences between the Norse Grammar lesson (Gorden) and the official “Dictionary of Discoveries” version by Langnas.

As for Leif Ericson, he had been a warrior prince. His voyages were those of conquest. [Thorfinn] Porfinn Karlsefni appeared to have been just as a “visitor” or a  “Curious Tourist” to other shores. He made few observations about his travels but when he returned home, those he did make were only those his countrymen would understand. No other manuscript has shown up to prove or disprove these observations, even though [Thorfinn] Porfinn Karlsefni’s descriptions of the lands he visited are reasonable.
One of [Thorfinn] Porfinn’s more interesting and insightful observations was based on the farm equipment of his homeland: the threshing sticks used during the harvest. They consist of a long pole with a short chain and a very short section of the same pole at the end of that chain. The clacking noise they made as they were swung into harvested grain was a reassuring sound to a farmer who spent months looking after his farm. The clacking of the threshing sticks meant that all is hard work during the previous months produced a plentiful harvest.

 Swedish Threshing Poles
At San Antonio, Texas Museum. 1992 = [A long pole with a short chain attached to a short stick.]

Porfinn Karlsefni stated :"the natives were in their canoes: and staves were waved from the canoes, and made “a noise, very like threshing [poles]. They were waved in the direction of the sun’s course.

Now, this appears to be an unreasonable statement. The translator assumed that it had been a "religious ceremony using rattle-sticks" Everyone who has paddled a canoe knows it is not a very good place to have an arm-swinging, body weaving ceremony to a god. Especially if all moved in unison. There would be boat-tipping. The smaller the canoe or flatboat is, the easier it would have been to tip over.

The only thing that Porfinn could have heard, that even remotely sounds like the threshing sticks he referred to, was once found in Lake Texcoco, the ancient lake system of Mexico. Weir Gates, half under water, opened with the incoming tide, and allowed fish to enter the area of the lake. When the tide went out, the gates would clank shut----(sounding much like the northern threshing sticks)----trapping the fish in the shallow waters where the boatmen could easily capture them.  [See The Vinland Map For the map of XVIth century Groenland, by Siurdi Sephani in 1579]

A new item turned up recently (IX.2016.17). It was an article by Karl Taube dated (1983, 171-181). It was about the Classic Maya Maize God: A Reappraisal. On the very first page a strange new non-Maya word occurred. The word “Swidden” was defined as a dialect of the Old English language as “a burned clearing.” Probably from Old Norse word: Svithinn [past participle of swidden, to burn or singe” By 1951, it was "a burning of a temporary plot. produced by cutting back [and burning off] vegetative cover." [Websters, 1986, 1193]

In short, farm lands (all over the world), swidden-farming was never associated with common cartographic works as a necessary step to research those early maps being printed in text books today.
What is Left to Consider about the Evacuations
From the Americas During the XIIth Century?

If the “swidden” farming method was brought by the Norse, to the New world, is not a provable item. The Itzaeae (according to de Landa) were those who aided the Maya helping them recover from a severe famine caused by the shifting of the stars. “Itzae” carries only a definition of “foreigner.” The Norse Grammar is not a complete manuscript. So where Porfinn traveled is still hidden information. On what waterway he traveled is also an unknown factor.

All that can be proven is through cartography and through the ruling governments of  Europe. Since all kingdoms on the Continent were ruled by Papal approval, the Inquisition has to be acknowledged as a moving force during the XIIth century AD.  By that century, the Crusades were on its last battlegrounds.

Saladin, the last great leader of the enemy of the Church, gambled for time by inviting the Crusader leaders into long drawn out dinners and entertainment. His negotiations were cautious and futuristic; at least, until his troops could be reorganized with new arrivals.

The general rule for Saladin to get new reinforcements from colonies, was strictly regulated by the amount of income produced by their trade activities. One man was to be sent for a certain amount of income the colony earned by trade. Due to the gold available to the colonies, for a minimum of trade items, ALL men  in each colony had to go to help the Islamic ruler, who at that time, was Saladin. :The mesoamerican eastern and western colonies were decimated quickly. The wives who were not strong or wise enough to keep the trust of their workers, lost their colonies by default.


So with such bad news coming from the Middle East, the comfort and peaceful existence of the colonies had to disband. Just to make sure no record was left in the New World about the identity of the colonists; records had to be revised if they could not be destroyed, and the movable items, like personal  religious and astronomy records were  taken with the new wartime conscripts. What was left, was the Mystery of the XII AD evacuation process. This type of information was naturally lost when when one, figuratively, exams problematic corpuscles of blood instead of the reactions of the problematic reactions within the whole body.
