No, I will not write extensively about how this Gregorian calendar date does not relate to the Maya Long Count. Fringe theorists will, of course, make the connection anyway. Today it is 188.8.131.52.14, 1 Ix 2 Keh according to the GMT correlation. There is nothing special about the date from the Long Count perspective. It is just another of these unimportant calendar dates that simply are recordings of Chronos, not of Aion. I think I’ll side with the triple O perspective and say that time simply is the tension between sensual objects and their sensual qualities. Time only exists on the inside of objects and it is only the product of objects. The calendar dates, whatever calendar you use, are simply part of a calendar-object whose essence is withdrawn from us. This gives anyone the possibility to speculate on transcendent and divine causes behind time, but time is simply immanent to the objects around you. Time is just the result of “physical” tensions. It is not out of this world.
Update: Here is another numerological combination: On the Swedish Lucia (St Lucy) Day, December 13, we will have the numerological combination 11.12.13 (that is how we record dates over here). So I’ll bet the light will arrive at 14:15 on that day. Lucia was from Italy and since Italy and Sweden straddles Calleman’s planetary midline it can only mean that the light arrives from the North, only a few days before the winter solstice 2011. The Maya got it all wrong.
For those who like numerology, mythology and the birth of a new age I can give you this to listen to:
