Time of Humans
We didn’t invent time. The movement of our planet around the sun creates the illusion of time. The configuration of the sun, the earth, and the moon is the blueprint of the time we should follow unless we want to be in dissonance with the natural rhythm of life in our solar system. Which seems to be the case considering the calendar and the clock we have chosen to follow. But in reality, this is not a conscious choice. For most people, the Gregorian time is just what it is. How it came about, it simply doesn’t matter.
THE ROLE OF THE CLOCK IN YOUR LIFE
Think about the influence the clock has on your personal life. If you want to survive in the civilized world today, you have no choice but to know what time it is most of the time. If you don’t wake up to an alarm set up for a specific time, almost the first thing you do after you open your eyes is ask the question: “What time is it?” You can’t start organizing your day before you orient yourself in the collective reality in this way. If you know what time it is, you have an idea of what people around you are doing. Basically, you have to know at what point in time the rest of humanity is so you can position yourself in the game accordingly. Is it time to go to work? Is it lunch time? Is it high-traffic time? Is it time to call someone? Nothing happens outside of the network of time.
12 hours/60 minutes is the engine of your life.
Why is this not a good system?
Because the 12:60 frequency has us locked in the material dimension and in linear time.
A QUICK LOOK AT THE CALENDAR
The calendar is just a bigger clock. And our life as a society and everybody’s personal life revolves around the “holidays” in it. The most influential ones are related to religion, too – Christmas and Easter being the two major reference points. At the same time, the months are named after pagan Roman gods. Overall, our time system is based on a tradition of a civilization long gone, whose barbaric values we keep alive through the calendar we have inherited from them. And that is only the beginning of the total confusion this calendar has inveigled us in.
♦ The new year starts “in the middle of nowhere” as far as the relationship between the celestial bodies who initiate the concept of time for us in the first place are concerned.
♦ The months have different numbers of days with no logical, systematic correlations.
♦ The names, the number of days, the sequence of the months – it’s all a result of a long series of random circumstances. In different ages, different people moved months and days around for very subjective and highly egotistical reasons. For example, July is named after Julius Caesar because the Roman emperor was told he would live forever in time. People would mention his name for centuries to come, and would think well of him because July is the most prosperous month of the year. To reinforce that he also made his month with 31 days. Then Augustus wanted the same for himself, so he took the arbitrarily second best month, and took a day from February to make his month as big as that of Julius.
♦ Before Numa Pompilius, the (then) Roman calendar started with the month of March. After it was moved to January, the names didn’t change to fit their position in the sequence. That’s why today September should be the seventh month, but it’s the 9th, and so on, until December.
Names of the months:
March is named after the Roman god of war.
April means either “second” (as in the second month) or “opening”, referring to the opening of the buds in spring.
May is named after another Roman goddess, Maia.
June carries the name of Juno, a Roman goddess of marriage.
July was first named “Quintilis”, which is Latin for “fifth” but then someone told Julius Caesar that if he had a month named after him, he would be immortalized through the calendar, so he chose the best month to be his. He made his month with 31 days.
August used to be “Sextilia”, which is Latin for “sixth”, but in 8 B.C. Augustus Caesar also wanted to live forever and took the other good summer month. He extracted a day from February to add it to his month so he’d have equal power to Julius.
September’s name comes from septem, Latin for “seven”.
October’s name comes from octo, Latin for “eight.”
November’s name comes from novem, Latin for “nine.”
December’s name comes from decem, Latin for “ten.”
January is named after Janus, the god of beginnings and endings.
February took after the name of the end-of-the-year festival Februa, which Numa Pompilius extended to last a whole month, around 690 B.C.
Many other chaotic adjustments happened to the calendar before Pope Gregory 13th made the final random reformation in 1582 to the system we are using today.
What do we have today?
A time system of confusion which has been producing a confused social system.
PROS AND CONS OF THE GREGORIAN CALENDAR
AND THE 12-HR CLOCK
♦ By dividing the day in 12 hours, they don’t fit right in the 365 days. As a result, every year we have a leftover of time of almost 1/4 of a day/night cycle. So we ignore that fact and we simply wait for the leftovers to build up to one full day/night cycle, and then we add it as an extra day in every fourth year. That’s a terrible glitch in the system but we don’t realize the disastrous consequences from it. Not to mention the offense to people born on February 29.
♦ We don’t have even weeks in every month, and that creates a huge amount of extra data correlation work all over the place. In business and accounting, in transportation, in programming…pretty much in every sphere of the social life.
♦ The numbers of the days in the month do not correspond to the week days. You need to check every time what day of the week a certain date would be.
♦ To divide the year in 12 months and the day in 12 hours is a decision of the male priesthood in ancient Mesopotamia. They wanted to diminish the power of women who ruled the world in the matriarchal era before that. Since they knew that the sun provides the male energy on Earth and the moon – the female energy, by cutting the moon out of time, they took away women’s power. In the era that followed, there has been an undeniable imbalance between men and women in our society.
♦ The number 12 represents linear time and the material plane of existence.
This time system has one overwhelming advantage – the fact that it is the currently used system all over the world and that almost no one thinks that there is anything wrong with it.
WHAT IS THE ALTERNATIVE?
One of the many examples of the time systems of the ancient civilizations is the 13-moon calendar of the Maya. It divided the solar year in 13 months of 28 days each. One day remained and that was the day for celebrating the new round of the earth around the sun.
For the ancient Olmecs and Maya, the new year began with the rising of the star Sirius, which coincides with Gregorian July 26 because Sirius governs our part of the galaxy and is the central station of synchronization for our solar system.
I believe that the date July 26 is the perfect point of alignment between the synchronic time and the Gregorian time. 26 (13×2) synchronizes with the 260 kins of the Tzolkin. It’s also a perfect time for celebrating the new year with a day out of time right in the heart of two of the most powerful rulers of the Roman empire, Julius and Augustus, still ruling our world with their energy embedded in the months of July and August.
We are profoundly connected to our planet, the star, and the moon.
We are an integral part of the configuration.
One solar cycle consists of 365 days.
The moon circles the earth 13 times for that period.
When we synchronize our time with the two major cycles of our immediate celestial family
we easily obtain an elegant, simple and harmonious time system.
This deviation from natural time is not simply the result of a miscalculation. It’s a consequence of our ignorance. Most humans today are completely oblivious to the fact that time is uniquely responsible for our human experience.
Our time defines our reality.
The way you present time as we understand it today opposed to Tzolkins’ understanding, actually makes sense. It’s funny, I never thought about the names of the months. The 13 month year has no names for it’s months I suppose, so they are refered to as hte first, second etc? Days too?
They have the names Jose Arguelles gave the 13 tones – Magnetic, Lunar, Electric, etc…The days also – if you go by the waves. But the days also have the names of the plasmas in the 7-day week in that month. This may be a bit fuzzy but it can become clearer if you read the free eBook?
