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.

"Hand of God" via NASA's Chandra Telescope

NASA  called this Nebula the Hand of God
It was photograph via the Chandra Telescope in Harvard.

       It  was told during the nights when the campfires were low and the skies sparkled with the newly emerged Milky Way.

      The men merchants who carried the tale from Greece to the Orient and back again. Or was it carried by Greeks from the sea of China all the way to Greece as the pure Greek tale of a war that included a star event that no one wanted to remember; except as the tale of a beautiful goddess who came with them through the Hittite land-locked empire along about the VIIth century AD. 

     Homer thought it was a great story for both men and boys. Homer called it the "Iliad" and his sequel was the continuing tale of Ulysses and his Odyssey across both land and seas to return home to Greece.  He  arrived just in time to save his faithful wife from the clutches of the myriad suitors who were vying for her hand in marriage. They figured if they told Penelope that Ulysses was obviously dead often enough---she would relent and marry one of them, at least before Ulysses might return.  [The war had already been reported----months ago and no one reported that he had gotten killed in battle.]


As you have read above, the Iliad version is a very, very interesting story about brave men who went on to do battle for a lovely woman.  A great tale that Homer wrote out so that all could enjoy it as it was told to him. I would like you to NOT forget the story, but to look at the gods who engineered the battle from the heavens.

They were sky gods who were constellations, planets, Bi-Polar Jet about to explode, that was the Blue Moon, we only know as the extra moon shining late in any one month to amaze and tempt us to believing it was a bit of sky magic, when it was only common, ordinary astronomy.

However, none of those stellar gods in the sky ever thought about all the complex mathematics we consider to be astronomy today. Instead, Astro-gods were described in rollicking, active once- upon-a-time stories describing all the foibles of mankind, both good and bad. 

Every star watcher in the known or unknown world, put their own spin on the tales. Each land used the tales in useful ways to teach their young men and women everything known about life as it was before books were printed. The books became so technical that only those with a college education could understand "proper" data only with BA, MA, or PhD, The lessons of life with their, sometimes, complex adventures were too difficult for the mathematicians so they eliminated the fancy words and replaced them all with numbers and only factual data about our world today.

The story I am going to "translate" is not as long as the Iliad or the Odyssey, It is only a small short version of the wounded wrist of Aphrodite and how it became a Nebula in the Southern skies. And how those words do describe our own modern astronomy WITHOUT all the numbers and calculations we need to understand the stars.

      The Maya and the Mixtec saw another version of the sky Hand. Eric Thompson first mentioned the hand of god his book Maya Hieroglyphic Writing, [that I found on page 132 of the 1971 fourth printing of the third edition of his book.]

     An association which brings together death or sacrifice, stone knife, and hand is to be found in the Yucatec name for the knife which is:  u kab ca (ku0  or "the Hand of God. (Scholes and Adams, 1938, 1:42)"

     It was not discovered until NASA's Hubble via the Chandra Space Telescope found the nebula. NASA named it "The Hand of God."  It was a few months later that I found this nebula could only be found in the constellation Compass located near the South Pole over the Pacific Ocean. The strange part about the Maya and Mixtec information was that this nebula was seen by them in the center of their area of the sky. Yet, it may only be the southern view of the Summer Triangle that was discovered in Peru, with Vega at the top of the constellation instead of Deneb. But moved down to the Antarctica when Aphrodite was told to get away from the conflict of the Iliad.

     North of the Equator Vega is to the right of the Milky Way within the constellation Lyra. while Deneb is at the top of that triangle created by Vega, and Altair [in Aquila] is far left of the Milky Way.

       Stela 22 and Stela 67 of Izapa are taken into consideration as actual records of the fact that time except for the extra days added by the earth's new lopsided 23.5 degree spin from the Tropic of Cancer in the north and as far south with another 23.5 degrees to the Tropic of Capricorn in the south.

     The Persians saw the NASA version with an insignificant tube that had the appearance of the very first cannon used in XVth century Europe.  It even leaned on a "Y" stick as the cannon did. However, the piece illustrated in the panel of Mithra, located in Rome (Sesti, (1966, 63) was the telescope that was used to see the constellation illustrated at its tip as a bull (not Taurus), It may have been a wild boar in Persia. But that is unknown at this time.

     The Maya "square" sky symbol enclosing with two hands and the feet around it, probably indicated the path where this nebula was seen around the square world that they were believed to be their version of the earth in similarly-shaped Yucatan.

      The question then remains, are the above "Hands" also part of the stories that the Maya glyphs are portraying on the various stelae around Mesoamerica?  Is is part of the story of the Popol Vuh and the birth of the Twin comets (from the spittle [sperm] of One Hunahp├║'s skull, which is also nother nebula shaped as a head with an open mouth. Its astronomy name is NGC7000 and is located near Deneb of the Summer Triangle.

     The Twins, was soon to be born from Blood Moon, their mother who lived near the Milky Way as a soon-to-explode star near Vega which is located in the constellation Lyra, the Turtle. For the Turtle one has to return to the Greek music contest between  Hermes. and Apollo. Hermes is supposed to have created the Lyre from the carapace of the turtle. He won the contest easily.

        Blood Moon's iconography was found in the Nuttall Codex undeer a different name:

       Thw Lady is a spinner but she is not spinning thread  So her spindle is an icon that informs the viewer that she herself is the spinning star (called a Bi-Polar Jet in proper astronomy terms) Although the atl-atl [spear] is shown, the date glyph is called, by Robert Williams, "Two Reed," in his book about the codex. So there may have been a "fix" to fit a different calendar name.  We should not forget the two comet stars on the head of a serpent used as her special headdress and finally, the glyph name under "2-Reed" having five distinct units: 

      The [1] debris being flung away from the [2] central spinning star (seen on the Lady's blue apron);  [3] the thicker red ring between the two is the same as the "Hand of God." NASA photographed [see above};this star as a nebula in of the constellation Compass over the South Pacific Ocean; [4] the Macaw with the [5] hand and fingernails as its crest is just another reference to the fact that she also was called a Macaw OR the "Hand of God" by NASA.

       The last part of the story of this lady's journey around the world is in the Iliad as it passed through Turkey as Aphrodite. She tried to help her hero-warrior gain his love, Helen. 
However, the goddess was wounded in her wrist. She went to her father Zeus to complain, but was told to stay away from the battle. The blood that flowed from her wrist was called ICHOR in the Iliad and treated as an unknown word with no meaning other than the blood of a sky-goddess.

        As usual, I got curious enough to check the dictionaries I had found as I attempted to learn about other alphabets. With no other thought in mind, I went for the Latin, and the Greek languages, which included a line of text over a break across the Xanthus 44 monument in Lycia. The library had a German and a Turkish dictionary on a smaller shelf. I got even more curious.

        The curiosity got to be more productive than I imagined. The word ICHOR was actually in the Turkish dictionary. And its definition was that of "long-burning cinders."  Not blood at all. The merchants who saw the nebula during their journeys, somehow decided that the Turkish definition was not fit for a real goddess of beauty and decided she spilled her [blue] blood for her hero-warrior. It was a better fit than cinders falling from the sky.

       And it just happened to match the Aztec Sun Stone Age of Tlaloc who sent down a burning rain, that the translator of the Maya Popol Vuh decided it was probably LIKE Resin or Turpentine.

        Thus ends the story of the rains from the "gods," who circle the world as constellations and nebulas; who have been identified as a great variety of gods and goddesses in the astro-world above the earth.
