Some 2012ers attempts to mix modern science with ancient myths and cosmology to proclaim that the ancients knew more than we think. Here is one example where it is suggested that the 20 calendar glyphs of the tzolkin equals the 20 amino acids. Four nucleic-acid bases make up DNA. These are called ACGT. There are also four amino acids that make up RNA and these are called ACGU. The important part here for the author is that this is a sequence of four letters.
The author of the post focuses on the contemporary cog wheel representations of the 20 calendar days and the numbers running from 1 to 13. For him/her this is microcosm helping macrocosm, a gear mechanism that turns the larger wheel. There is apparently no consideration here that these are just our representations, not that of the ancient Maya since they lacked cog wheels. The person use Pythagorean ideas of reducing the number 13 to 4 since 1+3 equals 4. This is yet another misrepresentation of Maya numerology which is based on a vigesimal system and only included three signs. For them 13 were represented with two bars and three dots. How do you reduce that to four dots? You cannot.
In conclusion, number 13 or 4 represents DNA or RNA. At the end of this mind blowing research the person concludes that 13 x 20 equals 260 (the tzolkin) but he/she calls it the “lunar wheel of Mayan timekeeping” (but tzolkin is not connected to the moon at all). To the author this suggests “that what we call Junk DNA is perhaps connected to the Solar Wheel of Mayan Time Keeping [the haab I assume???]….understand…the two ribbons of DNA travel in opposite directions … like the two cogs of Mayan Time Keeping connecting the Moon and the Sun…What if?”
This is of course bogus, written down by someone with little to no knowledge about the Maya.
