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.

Elotepec: The Mountain of God

Add Elotepec: Lost Territory or an Accurate Trajectory
in the Arc of the "Crescent Moon"
(RGS 3:15-51?) Relación Geográfica map of Teozacoalco) The map Teozacoalco map give us a record of the boundary revision by using two sets of boundaries; one from before and one from after Elotepec was its subject. Appearing on the same inscribed circle as Teozacoalco’s other boundaries are nine logographs naming its new boundaries with Elotepec. The old boundaries that embraced Elotepec’s territory are added along an arc that rises like a crescent moon from the main circle.

     Why would this artist have felt compelled to include two sets of boundaries, one of them old and inoperable on this map? It seems likely that an earlier map, made while Elotepec [Mountain of God] was still under Teozacoalco’s domain, initially showed one set of boundaries. After Elotepec was re-assigned Teozacoalco’s cabildo revised its map by adding in the new boundary line. When the Relación Geográfica’s mapmaker made his map, he simply copied the two sets of boundaries that appeared on the earlier map.[1]

The above quote was information I acquired about the Mixtec Teozacoalco Map. I had learned about it the the manner stated above and never looked at it since 1997 when I had made an 8.5 X 11" color copy of it and put it into my files. It was such an ugly map that I thought little of it.

In Mar 23, 2013, I was searching for other information and happened upon the full version of the map I had copied. I was shocked. I saw and understood the archaeoastronomy message that it carried. By writing it out, and trying to determine what some of the glyphs meant, I also encountered a familiar name glyph: Three Dog. It connected to the Christmas festival of Rabanos [Radishes] in the year 2007. Also about an astronomy event. . . .
Three Dog on his path to where
the Stars are seen upside down

That fits perfectly into the Mixtec Crescent arc over the map of Teozacoalco; especially since the Mountains of God are included at the end of the arc; about to be cut apart by an axe from the sky.
Three Dog was the astronomer student who went to Observation hill on Sandy River where the stars could be seen upside down.

Basically, he went because his parents wanted an oracle/astronomer/astrologer who could aid them in their new kingdom with correct prophecies from the stars. He learned how to triangulate the stars so he could pinpoint a good location for a temple or for a palace. Such things work out well when the astronomer can be trusted. These last two paragraphs are my imagination and nothing more.since I have never been a ruler or a queen.

How long have the Mixtec people known about the story of Three Dog? How many scholars have questioned the Mixtec about what they knew about Three Dog and where he went? Someone or many Mixtec natives know the story very well, or it would never have been in the Festival of the Radishes in 2007.

The very fact that the dog was placed in front of the Maize God is important. It is quite possible that he was born after the birth of the Maize God. And it was his parents that began the reconstruction of the cities Apoala and Tilantongo while Three Dog was learning his craft on Observation HIll at Sandy RIver.

The reconstruction of many cities are in the Codex Vindobonenses. Was it after the Blue Star Man and his companion the white winter person made it possible to rebuild? Ie.: Colder weather, but not freezing weather, was more comfortable to work with the building materials.


Now is the time to evaluate the astronomy of the arc, and not the lost territory theory.

What Can Be Seen Attached to the Crescent Arc?
A cradle
A bright "sun"
Cancer, a Constellation
Gemini, another Constellations
The Milky Way: A river of star

A bright star in Lyra over Vega
A Tree growing and barely reaching the Crescent Arc
Orion, a Constellation [on a pedestal ?]
An axe falling on a double peaked mountain
A vague circle, may be the Moon
The end of the Crescent Arc. showing a dark element

Going Backward On the Map Edge
An animal with a curled tail
A name glyph for Three Dog
A dead serpent Draco, around the small tree reaching up behind Orion
Ophiuchus next to the Milky Way
Two unknown constellations to the left of the Milky Way
The Cradle where it all started.
To start with the Cradle under the "Sun"
If the left of the map is the northwest corner of the map
it CANNOT be the SUN
ONLY comets are born in the northwest: in the Land of the Dead
A case in point:
The God of  Death:
First view of the Venus Glyph
with two raucous star/comets leaving
the Land of the Dead [West]
as a single-shaft double-spear of light.
The axe was one of the most important stones that fell from the sky on the map of
Teozacoalco. Did Three Dog see the event, or did he hear about it?
