Maya Glossary

The cosmic cross formed by the intersecting  the Galactic Equator of the Milky Way and plane of the Ecliptic path of the Sun is scheduled for the winter solstice of 2012. The ancient Maya recognized the event the Sacred Tree representing an end point in the cycle of time and a new beginning for all of humanity

The Harmonic Convergence 
the point at which the counter-spin of history finally comes to a momentary halt, and the still imperceptible spin of post-history commences.

When you combine two simple harmonic motions at right angles to one another, you get an ellipse.

The Long Count
A Mayan date utilizes three calendars. The third calendar, known as the "long count", is a continuous record of days that starts over every 5000 years or so. The current Long Count began in 3114 BC. And it will end 520 years after the birth of the new World known as the Americas in 1492.

 They Mayans are in good company when they say we are on the cusp of a  new age as their Great Cycle, of 5,125.36 years ends. This represents one fifth of the great cycle of 26,000 well known to the Babylonians, Egyptians, Norse, Celts, Manding, Chinese, and the East Indians whose charts also agree  we are entering an age very different than what the world has known since the Birth of Christ. This precession of the zodiac over the equinoxes now give us the Age of Aquarius
 The Mayans viewed the world differently making little distinction between religion and science. They shared a collective dream which was their purpose and it included an obsession with time, myths, astrology and their big history. They foretold their end as a great civilization as well as humanities. In short, on Winter Solstice A.D. 2012  the present world age will end and a new world age will begin or not.
icking an exact date is valuable but it also serves us to remember that a single degree of change in the night sky was measured over 72 years. The day of winter solstice does meet widespread agreement since its events mark a junction of significance between the earth, the universe and the end point of the great cycle informing all things in this great dance of mystical history between the planets.  
The Babylonians and their influential successor culture the Egyptians used a 12 month calendar rather than the inspired 13 month moon cycle calendar of the Mayans. Yet but both set aside 5 of the 365 days for a festival outside of ordinary space and time, also know as Carnaval time. 

The Mayan calendar is 13 months (moons), each month has 28 days.
It is a natural cycle calendar. It is the same as menstrual cycles and moon cycles.
It stimulates synchronicity and telepathy.
The Mayan calendar covers the period 3113 BC to 2012 AD, 5125 years.
Unlike other ancient calendars it has never been in error.
All its predictions have been accurate.
By 2012 we will have reached a total collapse of time as we know it and an entry of humanity into post history.


Part of the Mayan prophecy was the Harmonic Convergence Prophecy which said the Age of Materialism must end at this time and we must return to Nature to save ourselves and the planet, our biosphere.
Use of the Mayan calendar in everyday life will help heal Planet Earth, break the vicious link between time and money and bring oneness and understanding to humanity.


Three  authors  to  guide  you  on  your  journey

Jose Arguelles
An unorthodox and historically important visionary whose view and work of popularizing the enigmatic Mayans and their obsession with time has been at the forefront of the world-shattering thought by some of the planet's most original thinkers.  
Jose addresses his place in history

"As Valum Votan, I am closer of the cycle. What does this mean? I complete the prophecy cycle of Pacal Votan and Quetzalcoatl which defines the year 2012 as the conclusion of a schedule of historic and evolutionary cycles."

  • "allows the reader peel away the layers of traditional Western thought on the subject of Energy to reveal a core of Mayan philosophy steeped in spirituality" : Pascal Dupuy amazon reviewer
McKenna Brothers
Terence and David McKenna, based upon mutually shared experience with natural stimulants in the 
Amazon, the two researched the 5,000 year old history of the Chinese I Ching to prophesize the future. Their analysis of  sub-atomic event durations led them to a Timewave theory where  the brothers worked on advanced neurochemical theories to explain how the chemistry system worked, by which they had accessed knowledge stored in their nuclear DNA. Their research led them to a complex fractal wave, where each level is 64 times greater than the one below, consisting of 26 levels which describes all change in the universe, from sub-atomic event durations, up to a universe-length time span. When they analyzed the peaks and troughs of history, and lined up the Time wave over the wave of history, they found that the end of the wave, when all the sub-waves peak together, will be in 2012

The late ethnobotanist, Terence McKenna is best known for his theory that psychoactive plants like Psilocybin mushrooms stimulate our thinking in creative and beneficial ways and their use historically is the missing link in explaining the tripling of human brain. Further, the ban on partaking in the  ``tree of knowledge'' is leading Western society toward eventual collapse.

Find the world's first book, the I Ching, or the Chinese Book of Changes computer analyzed. The I Ching's 'King Wen sequence' of the 64 hexagrams is interpreted as a digital code, and in fractal geometry-like fashion, concatenated onto itself to create a wave function for the entirety of the universe and reach a corroborating view of the Mayan 2012 end date.

000  Zero Point 000

This was the beginning of  the fulfillment of the prophecy of Quetzalcoatl, known as the Thirteen Heavens and Nine Hells.  The prophecy stated that following the ninth hell, humanity would know and experience an unprecedented New Age of Peace.  The Hell cycle ended on August 16, 1987; the Harmonic Convergence began on August 17.
Thus began the projected twenty-five year culmination of the 5,125 year Great Cycle of History, as well as the 26,000-year cycle of evolution, both slated to end in 2012.

Gregg Braden
 Zero Point is maximum energy and no magnetic field as “.
"Those that claim to choose peace, prosperity, health and vitality for their world must first become those attributes themselves."
 It is time to speed up our  personal processes of spiritual awakening so that we may prevent self-destruction of the planet.  We are being asked to look inward and heal ourselves during this time of purification
Gregg Braden Zero Point by google


"if like so many of us, you've been having this unexplained intuition that some change is at hand for humanity and the world in general, well, just read this book and draw your own conclusions. Gregg Braden, thank you for a wonderful book."

Scientifically engaging, pragmatically mystical

the "Apocalypse"   The Long Count 8-11-1999 where there was a Grand Cross planetary conjunction in the sky as well as a total solar eclipse at exactly 11:11 a.m. GMT, we experienced a severe earthquake in Turkey only six days later. This earthquake occurred in the exact path where the eclipse had traveled over the Earth, and hence over the Earth's Grid also. 
The Mayan fifth world finished in 1987. The sixth world starts in 2012. So we are currently "between worlds". This time is called the "Apocalypse" or revealing.

What of Armageddon 
The country now known as Iraq is the former homeland of the Babylonians where civilization began. Perhaps this is a meaningful coincidence that they are best known today for their determination to unleash weapons of mass destruction against  Western Civilization and bring an end to history as some prophecies foretell. 

Why did the ancient Mayan or pre-Maya choose December 21st, 2012 A.D., as the end of their Long Count calendar?
Line art of Mayan tree of life  
"We couldn't have hoped for a closer conjunction. 1 day before or after will remove the sun a noticeable distance from the crossing point. December 21st, 2012 ( in the Long Count) therefore represents an extremely close conjunction of the winter solstice sun with the crossing point of Galactic Equator and the ecliptic, what the ancient Maya recognized as the Sacred Tree.?

Truth will be soon be revealed. There is little time for us to work through "our baggage" 
individually and collectively but try we must.

"His emphasis on the famous Long Count calendar shows that when the rising sun on the December solstice of the year 2012 conjuncts with the Milky Way's galactic center - or birth canal of the Great Mother of us all - a new age is expected, one in which humanity will mutate spiritually into a new relationship with space-time and the material universe."

Maya Cosmogenesis 2012 : The True Meaning of the Maya Calendar End-Date by John Major Jenkins

The Mayan 13/20 calendar

The Tzolkin consisted of 13 months each 20 days long, and the Haab of 18 months each 20 days long, and five rest days, thus making 365 days

The Maya kept time with a combination of several cycles that meshed together to mark the movement of the sun, moon and Venus. Their ritual calendar, known as the Tzolkin, was composed of 260 days. It pairs the numbers from 1 through 13 with a sequence of the 20 day-names shown below. It works something like our days of the week pairing with the numbers of the month. Thus you might have 1-Imix (similar to Sunday the 1st) followed by 2-Ik (just as you would have Monday the 2nd). When you get to 13-Ben, the next day would start the numbers over again, thus 1-Ix, 2-Men etc. It will take 260 days before the cycle gets back to 1-Imix again (13 x 20).

The "Calendar Round" is like two gears that inter-mesh, one smaller than the other. One of the 'gears' is called the tzolkin, or Sacred Round. The other is the haab, or Calendar Round 
These two independently running calendars each began again every 260 and 360+5 days. However, every 52 years they coincide: 

Our modern Western calendar was first introduced in Europe in 1582.  It was based upon the Gregorian calendar, which calculated the Earth’s orbit to take 365.25 days.  This was 0.0003 of a day per year too much, but still exceptionally accurate for scientists living over 400 years ago.

The Mayan calendars were derived from those of their predecessors, the Olmec, whose culture dates back at least 3,000 years.  Without the instruments of 16th century Europe, these Central American locals managed to calculate a solar year of 365.2420 days, just 0.0002 of a day short.  More accurate than the Europeans, and much earlier.

 1040-999 B.C. Woden or Odin, king of Denmark is known for his distant journeys which took him away from his homeland for many months. Just as king Odin or Danus gave his name to Denmark -- Danmark -- so Odin gave his name to the "forest of Dan" in the land of the Quiche Indians. (See pages 549 and 163 of volume V, "Native Races of the Pacific States", by Hubert H. Bancroft.) The Mayas claim that their kingdom was founded by a great eastern ruler named Votan or Oden or Dan by various tribes. He was a white man who came by sea from the east and settled them in their new land.
Today Odin is better known as  Head of Norse gods, son of Bor. Odin and his brothers defeated *Ymir, the frost giant. Odin sits in Valhalla, the Hall of the Slain, with his hand-picked warriors in preparation for Ragnarok, the Twilight of the Gods--the end of the world.

  The journey began at Mission Dolores, the birthplace of the Bay Area in 2001 as it attempted to celebrate its 250th birthday by placing donated statues of the King of Spain founder of the 21 California Missions and the Spanish Captain founder of what would become the City of San Francisco. There was unexpected anger by the citizens that led to inaction. The Church's response that this was history was met with the local politician calling for the statues to be thrown into the sea and then retracting the sentiment only for environmental reasons. There was a broad support for the reaction, which meant refusing to accept a gestures of good will and denying the remembrance of common history to the entire community.
