Cosmic Time Meets Earth Time: The Numbers of Supreme Wholeness and Reconciliation Revealed

In the process of writing about the precessional cycle I fell down a rabbit hole of sorts and in the process of finding my way around I made what I think are 4 discoveries about the cycles of time and the numbers that underlie and unify cosmic and earthly time .

Discovery number 1:

The units of time that segment the day into hours, minutes and seconds are in fact reconciled by the units of time that compose the Meso American Calendrical system or MAC for short.

It was a surprise to me because the late Dr.Jose Arguelles, who claimed to have formulated the “Law of Time” had also vilified the numbers of Western timekeeping as a most grievious error.

So much so that he attributed much of the worlds problems to the use of the 12 month calendar and the 24 hour, 60 minute, 60 second day, also known by its handy acronym 12-60 time.

I never bought into his argument that the use of those time factors was at fault for our largely miserable human-planetary condition. But I was content to dismiss mechanized time as nothing more than a convenient tool to facilitate the activities of complex societies.

As mechanized time I assumed it was based on a relatively arbitrary assignment of numbers. And as a student of “natural time” I came to recognize the day-night cycle as the most basic unit of natural time.

Anything less than a day-night cycle was a human invention I reasoned. I was aware that the units of clock time were based on numbering systems developed by the ancient Mesopotamians.

Arguelles had dismissed their numbering system as based on divisions of space and not as divisions of time, therefore they were not actually measuring time, but space so he reasoned. Arguelles referred to clock time as artificial time.

But as I explored further I came to the realization that the base 60 and deudecimal (12) counting systems of the Mesopotamians and Egyptians respectively was not so arbitrary or artificial after all. Further down I’ll get into the particulars of the Old World timing system and the examples that demonstrate discovery number 1.  

Discovery number 2:
The discrepancy between a Maya precessional cycle account of 9,360,000 days and the solar year precessional account of 9,412,529 days is reconciled by what I refer to as the master numbers of supreme wholeness and reconciliation—the numbers 26 and 52. Further down I explain the specifics of this discovery and show examples.

Discovery number 3:
The number of days in a unit of precessional shift or a 1 degree of shift every 70.56 years is equivalent to the number of years in a precessional cycle. Details further down.

Discovery number 4:
Discovery number 4 is actually a confirmation of the hypothesis that plummeted me down the rabbit hole of time. Based on my study of the Tzolkin cycle and the MAC system in general I had come to recognize the numbers 26 and 52 as “very special numbers” that stood out from among the pantheon of key numbers associated with MAC.

I have come to recognize 26 and 52 as the numbers representing supreme wholeness, symmetry and numerical reconciliation. Those descriptors as actually synonyms with varying nuances in connotation.

My time travels have confirmed that those two numbers do indeed represent supreme wholeness, symmetry and numerical reconciliation at every level thus far mapped from 13 days to 26,000 years.

Time Traveling
My recent inquiries into the subject of time and its numbers went deep as I was preparing a chapter for my short book on the untold story of 2012.  At this point we are going to drop into the middle of the chapter I am writing on the precessional cycle and John Major Jenkins’ contributions toward our understanding of the galactic alignment, an aspect that is intimately related to the precessional cycle.  


John Major Jenkins and the Galactic Alignment of December 21st 2012
Jenkins has devoted most of his research to the archeological and astronomical correlations of 2012. Jenkin’s and many others claims that at the moment our that our sun reaches its solstice moment at 11:12 AM universal time on December 21st 2012 it will conjunct with the Galactic equator.

An event that happens either every 25,920 or 26,000 years depending upon which of Jenkins’ estimates we use. He mentions both numbers is his book Galactic Alignment.

The numbers 25,920 or 26,000 are used in the popular literature when referencing the length of the precessional cycle, aka, the platonic year, the great year and the precession of the zodiac.

The earth’s precessional cycle is derived from its wobble as it spins on its axis and the position of the stars in the night sky changes by 1 day or 1 degree every 70.56 years as a result.

The precessional cycle is equal to the amount of time it takes for the stars to return to a particular point in the sky. According to the most precise estimate in astronomical science the precessional cycle is 25,770.1 years long.

Jenkins claims that the Maya “chose” the date of December 21st 2012 solstice to mark the end of Long Count cycle because of that date’s correspondence with the solstice sun’s conjunction with the approximate galactic center.

Jenkins argues that the Maya knew about the conjunction because of a mural that he says depicts the conjunction in mythical terms.  Some scholars believe that there is no evidence to suggest that the Maya knew about the precessional cycle.

Archeo-astronomer Anthony Aveni puts forth a good case in his latest book in favor of why the Maya may have known about the precessional cycle. I say that if the lone Greek astronomer Hipparchus knew about precession in 128 BC then why wouldn’t the Maya know about it?

As a culture they did after all monitor the heavens for hundreds of years and prior to the age of modern astronomy no other culture had mapped the night sky as extensively nor has any culture to date developed a calendrical system of such sophistication and exacting precision.  


Within the mythic stories of mesoamerica there are references to world ages or creation cycles known as Suns. According to the stories we are in the 5th Sun. Those who believe that the Maya knew about precession think that the term “suns” refer to Long Count cycles.

The Long Count cycle is made up of 13 baktun cycles equaling 5125.25 years. Five times 5125.25 equals 25,626.25 years; that’s only 143.85 years shy of the modern calculation of 25,770.1 years.

That’s much closer than the 25,920 years and its rounded off number of 26,000 years offered by Western astrological practitioners. I am also surprised to find that John Major Jenkins is using such imprecise figures as well.  



Interesting numerical curiosities begin to emerge when we use MAC units instead of years. But before I delve into the curiosities I want to define what I mean by MAC Calendrical units instead of years”.

My experiences and studies of the MAC system compel me to surmise that the Ancient Meso-Americans discovered galactically or perhaps even universally based timing constants and that their calendrical system is a charting of those constants.

I say Ancient Meso-Americans (AMA) instead of Maya because the tzolkin cycle was in use by the Olmecs and Zapotecs long before the Maya were even recognized as a cultural entity.

It is not known who exactly discovered the Tzolkin cycle nor do we know about how long it had been in use before dates began to be inscribed. We find the first tzolkin dates appearing on Zapotec cultural artifacts over 2500 years ago.

If my assessment is correct then MAC units may be considered galactic timing constants and/or universal timing constants. In contrast our year cycle is particular to our planet’s orbit around the sun.

Let us consider that there are billions of solar systems in our galaxy and that every planet orbiting a star is going to have a different orbital period much like we find to be true in our solar system.

The curious thing about MAC is that certain key numbers of the MAC system function as common denominators in that they interrelate the planetary orbits of our solar system. That seems to imply that planetary motions have some sort of underlying universal values to them. But those universal values if they exist may be limited to our galaxy.  


Next we must acknowledge that a day-night cycle is first and foremost the most obvious unit of natural time measurement. Hours and seconds are not natural divisions of time or so I thought before I discovered that they too are factored by the key numbers that underlie MAC!

Undertstanding the factoral relationships between numbers is key to grasping the configuration of the MAC system. Hours, minutes and seconds are not natural in that there is nothing we can point to in nature and say its cyclical behavior marks hours, minutes or seconds.

The only things that mark hours, minutes and seconds are clocks and they don’t occur naturally, but they are products of humans, who in turn are natural products.

It seems that because humans are so prone to create such noxious stuff that it must seem that everything we create must be tainted by whatever compels us to create much of the ugliness we see in the world.

Well that may be the case in many realms, but I’ve discovered that the time units of clock time are based on natural phenomena.  



The 24 hours of the day-night cycle have their origins in the appearance of 24 stars as noted by Egyptian astronomers.

The 60 minute divisions of the hours and the sixty second divisions of the minute are derived from the Babylonians who used sexigismal (60’s based) counting system to make astronomical calculations.

The Babylonians inherited the 60 base counting system from Sumerians. It is unclear as to why or how the Sumerians arrived at a 60’s base counting system.

Some believe that 60 was chosen because it is evenly divisible by so many numbers thereby making it a convenient number to use to avoid fractions. But I doubt that the use of the sexigisimal system was based merely on convenience.

The 365 day year does not lend itself to fractionless divisions, but a 360 day year does. Three hundred and sixty five days symbolizes a full circle, but does not divide evenly.

The Egyptians divided the year into 36 decans and a 5 day period much like the Maya haab calendar of 18 “months” of 20 days with a 5 day vayeb period. It is interesting to note how 18 is one half of 36. Sixty divides evenly into 360 so it is likely that the origins of the sexigisimal counting system has something to do with a 360 day year.

It is curious that both cultures developed a 360, plus 5 special day calendar year. The Maya counting system is a base 20 or vigisimal counting system.

Sixty is divisible by 20 and I will show how that relationship reconciles the Mayan and Mesopotamian counting systems to give us a thoroughly integrated timing system that integrates modern sub-day timekeeping with Meso American Calendrics (MAC). Sub-day means timing units less than one day.  

Some Common Units of MAC The Kin:
The standard base unit of Maya or natural time measurement is a day-night cycle known as a kin. Kin means either day, person or sun in the Maya language. The Maya grouped specific numbers of days into various cycles ranging from 4, 5, 13, and 20 days all the way to 144,000 days and beyond.

  • Uinal = 20 days
  • tuns = 360 days
  • holtun = 1800 days
  • katun = 7200 days
  • baktun = 144,000 days

Every unit of the MAC system contains an even number of days. The Maya mathematical system did not use fractions. In contrast modern astronomy counts by years or a timing period specific only to earth (geocentric view). Counting by years always leaves pesky fractions to deal with. Not so with the MAC. In fact the MAC system resolves the pesky 5 day and .25 day fraction wherever we find it.


When one studies the numerical interrelationships between the various units of the MAC certain numbers begin to emerge as common denominators.

In particular the key numbers 4, 13, 20, 26, 52, 65, 130 and 260. The core numbers 4, 13 and 20 represent the innermost sanctum of the entire MAC system.

Each of the 3 numbers represents the duration of a distinct subcycle contained within the master or tzolkin cycle that in turn underpins the entire MAC system.

The master numbers 26 and 52 represent numerical junctures of sorts. Thirteen divides evenly into 26, and 4 and 13 divide evenly into 52. But it is not until the 260th day when the 3 core numbers (4,13,20) and the other 4 key numbers (26,52,65,130) all divide evenly into 260 and at that point the tzolkin cycle is complete.

I use the term equi-partite to refer to the numbers 65 and 130 as they are significant because they partition the tzolkin cycle into 4 “seasons” and 2 halves respectively.

The number 260 may be regarded as the number of supreme wholeness because all of the key numerical elements of the tzolkin reach perfect mathematical symmetry and maximum diversity at 260. Meaning that the interplay between the 3 tzolkin subcycles exhaust all novelty or possible number of combinations in 260 steps.

The number 52 was particularly important to all of Mexico’s precolumbian cultures. Fifty-two is the number of years that it takes for the tzolkin and solar cycles to complete what is known a calendar round.


As we probe the numerical interrelationships of the MAC system we uncover a numerical order and harmony among its parts. We also discover that the fractions left over by the 365.25 day year are reconciled by the core and key numbers of MAC.

The big question is did the Maya develop an ingenious method for keeping track of time or did they discover the mathematics of time? It is my conviction that they discovered the latter.

As I develop this section we will see how the numbers 26 and 52 reconcile not only the remainders left over by using the 365.245 day year but also the remainders left over by the “unwholesome” numbers of all planetary orbits and orbital peculiarities.

The latter aspect would make for a very lengthy article if I were to apply the numbers of reconciliation to all the planets our our solar system. So for the purposes of this article I will only review the precessional, pregnancy, year, 52 year, day and 24 hour clock cycles.  


The numerical curiosities that I spoke of earlier pertain to correspondences between the numbers 52 and 26, their multiples or fractal equivalents and their factors and how their various manifestations are related to various astronomical cycles.

We shall see how the 260 day Tzolkin cycle is a perfect fractal of the MMAC and Solar Year accounts of the precessional cycle.

The Factorization of the Tzolkin Cycle

The Tzolkin cycle is evenly divisible by the following key numbers.

  • 4 x 65 = 260
  • 5 x 52 = 260
  • 10 x 26 = 260
  • 13 x 20 = 260
  • 20 x 13 = 260
  • 26 x 10 = 260
  • 52 x 5 = 260
  • 65 x 4 = 260
  • 130 x 2 = 260

As mentioned earlier the Tzolkin cycle is at the very core and foundation of the entire MAC system. It is my belief that the tzolkin cycle represents galactic and/or universal timing constants.  


The minutes, hours and seconds of our modern sub-day time keeping systems are based on the sexigismal (base 60) and duodecimal (base 12) accounting systems of the Mesopotamians and Egyptians.

Base 60 gives us our 60 seconds and minutes and base 12 gives us our 12 hours of AM and PM time. Base 12 also accounts for 12 lunar cycles per year (29.53 x 12= 354.26).

There are two principal ways of measuring the length of the day. One is known as a solar day and the other as the stellar or sidereal day. The solar day is also known as a civil day and it is 24 hours or 1440 minutes or 86,400 seconds in duration.

The solar day uses the suns position as the main point of reference and the stellar day uses the stars as the main point of reference. The stellar day is 86,164.1 seconds or less than a solar day by 235.9 seconds that I will round off to 236 seconds like a good Maya calendricist.


Reconciling the Solar Day
The hours, minutes and seconds of the solar day are not reconciled until after the 13th day when 312 hours is evenly divisible by 52.

  • 13 days x 24 hrs = 312 hrs
  • 312 ÷ 6 = 52
  • 312 hrs = 18,720 minutes ÷ 360 = 52
  • 18,720 minutes = 1,123,200 seconds ÷ 21,600 = 52

18,720 is a very significant number. 18,720 is also the number of days in 52 MMAC tun cycles of 360 days.


Reconciling the Stellar Day

  • Stellar day = 23 hrs, 56 minutes, 4.09 seconds = a rounded off 86,164 seconds
  • 86,164 seconds ÷ 1657 = 52


Reconciling the 236 second discrepancy between the length of the solar and stellar days

  • Solar day = 24 hrs = 86,400 seconds
  • 86,400 seconds minus 86,164 seconds = 236 seconds ÷ 4 = 59
  • 4 is a factor of 52 and a core number of MMAC


Reconciling the Old World Timing System with the New World MAC
All accounts I’ve seen thus far designate the 13 day Tzolkin subcycle as the shortest whole cycle of the MMAC. However a 4 day cycle is represented by the 4 color code of red, white, blue or black and yellow.

The four colors represent the 4 cardinal directions among many other things as we shall see later in our time travels. Four is also a factor of base sixty and 12 so what’s in need of reconciling are the other key numbers of the MAC—13, 26 and 52.

The number 13 is reconciled with the Old World system at 13 days when the number of hours is divisible by 52. The number 18,720 is an especially significant number in that it also represents the number of days in the Maya 52 tun count of 360 days.

Eighteen-thousand, seven hundred and twenty is 260 days shy of 18,980. (365 days x 52= 18,980) Two-hundred and sixty is a multiple of 52, 5 times. Nineteen-thousand, nine hundred and eighty is also the equivalent of exactly 73 tzolkin cycles.

I’ll say more about the 52 year cycle after I show how the year cycle is reconciled. The complete reconciliation between the Old World Timing system and the New World MAC is further down.  


Reconciling the 365.242 Solar Year Cycle

The tropical year, also known as the solar year can vary by up to 5 minutes over the years. So astronomer have come up with an average measure known as the mean tropical year.

The current mean measure is 365 days 5 hours, 48 minutes(m) and 45.19 seconds(s). We already know that counts of 360 days are reconciled by 26, 52, their factors and multiples.

What we need to reconcile are the 5 days, 5 hours, 48 m and 45.19 s to continue with my hypothesis that the numbers 26, 52 and their factors and multiples are the master numbers that reconcile the “unwholesomeness” of orbital periods and their peculiarities with the precision of the galactic timing constants that I believe are quantified and qualified by the master tzolkin cycle.

5 hours and 48 min = 20,880 s. We then remove the pesky .19 seconds from 45.19 and add 45 s to 20,880 to get 20,925 s.

  • 5 days = 432,000 seconds (s)
  • 5 hours, 48 m + 45 s = 20,925 s
  • 432,000 s + 20,925 s = 452,925 s
  • 452,925 s ÷ 52 = 8710.0961 s
  • We round off to 8710
  • 8710 x 52 = 452,920 s

We are within 5 seconds of the number we are seeking. More than close enough to qualify.  


Reconciling the difference between the 365.242 day Solar or Tropical year and the Gregorian or Civil year of 365.25 days

Now let’s look at the difference between the 20,925 seconds of the 5 hours, 48 minutes and 45 seconds of the tropical year and the 21,600 seconds of the civil or Gregorian year of 365.25 days.

  • Mean Tropical Year = 365.2421897 days
  • .2421897 = 20,925 seconds
  • Civil or Gregorian year = 365.25 days.
  • .25 days = 360 minutes = 21,600 seconds.
  • 21,600 seconds minus 20,925 seconds = 675 seconds
  • 675 seconds ÷ 52 = 12.98 now lets round off like good Maya astronomers and use 13
  • 13 x 52 = 676 a difference of 1 second off the magic number !


Human Gestation

The most commonly quoted period for the average length of human gestation is 266 days

  • Tzolkin cycle = 260 days
  • 9 lunar cycles or 9 precise months of 29.53 days = 265.77 days

Just for kicks lets see what the difference is between 266 days and 260 days. Six days equal 144 hours.

  • 144 ÷ 13 = 11.07 or 11 x 13 = 143 or a difference of 1 hour. 13 is a factor of 52 and one of the core numbers of the Tzolkin
  • Converted into minutes; 144 x 60 = 8640 m. ÷ 52 = 166.15 | 166 x 52 = 58,632 or a difference of 8 minutes.
  • Converted into seconds; 8640 x 60 = 518400 s. ÷ 52 = 9968.23 | 9969 x 52 = 518,388 or a difference of 12 seconds.

An interesting correspondence between the average length of gestation for what is quite possibly the most complex organism in the cosmos and the length of the most complex cyclical system we know of.  


The 52 year Calendar Cycle Where the Heart of Sky and the Heart of Earth Meet in Perfect Harmony

The 52 year cycle is commonly referred to as the calendar round within the calendrical community.

As mentioned earlier the close of a 52 year cycle was the holiest of holies among the peoples of precolumbian mesoamerica.

It takes exactly 52 years before every combination of dates possible between the solar cycle’s 365 and the tzolkin’s 260 day are realized.

For example if you were born on say Halloween or October 31st of 1970 and that date coincided with tzolkin date 166, then it will take exactly 52 years before tzolkin date 166 once again coincides with October 31st.

This is due to the specific numbers involved with each calendrical cycle. Within Maya mythic cosmology there is mention of the “Heart of Sky” and the “Heart of Earth”.

Reviews of the information I found online point to either Polaris the north star, the Pleiadian star Alcyone or the galactic center as the source of the Heart of Sky metaphor. Most references I found referred to the galactic center and I too think that the galactic center is the likeliest source of the mythic motif.

Heart of Earth seems self-explanatory, but what did the Maya mean by the use of the heart metaphor? The information I found did not attempt to decipher their possible meaning, but I’m going to offer some suggestions.


The heart can be equated with centrality, pulsation, pulsation as the simplest form of movement, life force, force and driving force. I am intentionally leaving out the emotive functions of the heart as I don’t think that that aspect plays a role in this case.

The Maya were aware that the stars, inclusive our our solar system revolved around the galactic center— aspect of centrality. They believed that the galactic core was home to the Hunab Ku or the One Giver of Movement and Measure.

Meaning that they recognized that somehow the galactic core had something to do with the movements they observed in the night sky.

We know that black holes rotate and pulse and that they are the strongest source of gravity in a galaxy. Gravity is the force that holds the galaxy together and it is the force that enables all celestial bodies to move in concert.

 The aspect of “measure” seems like the most befuddling of attributes until we breakdown what is meant by measure. The Mayan word closest to our meaning of time is movement.  


An excerpt from The Question of Time: An Illusion, a Delusion, a Magical Order or All of the Above. A day-night cycle is how we experience the earth’s axial rotation as it orbits the sun. And what is rotation? Rotation is a type of movement.

Therein lies the answer to the question of what clocks do. Clocks are designed to keep pace with the earth’s rotation and rotation is a type of movement.

We may therefore conclude that time is the equivalent of movement and you may read more on my rational as to why we may equate time with movement in article link provided.  


Measure may be seen as the parameters of movement. Take for example our solar system. The particulars (duration and speed) of each planet’s orbit and spin (movement) is determined primarily by size of each planet and its distance (more particulars) from the sun and the other planets of the solar system.

The particulars have to do with the measure or the quantified peculiarities of each entity and its relationship to every other entity. The One Giver of Movement and Measure implies that some aspect of galaxy central helps define the parameters particular to our galaxy.

We know that energy-matter is self organizing so the One Giver of Movement and Measure is a mythic term for the constants, forces and laws of physics that govern the behavior (movements) of our cosmos.

We also know that not every galaxy is hospitable to life bearing solar systems. And those that are hospitable, such as ours, have zones where conditions are not favorable.

So we can say that it is the particulars of our galaxy coupled with the particulars of our solar system coupled with the particulars of our earth’s relationship to the members of our solar system that has created the very specific conditions needed for life to emerge.

Modern science has illuminated most of the particulars, that is the specific measure of each condition that favors life, but it was the Maya who discovered the measure of movement itself as conditioned by the universal laws of physics and specifics of our galaxy.

Calendars measure the duration of cyclical movements as they pertains to heavenly bodies. The basic unit of measure used to measure duration as time is the earth’s day-night cycle. Movement equals time and there is a measure or specific duration to the cyclical movement of each body.

And as my demonstration has shown, tzolkin timing constants are specific numbers of days (regularities) that are found to underlie the cyclical movement of each aspect thus far considered in this article and many others that I will not present in this opportunity.

So the question is what are the relationships between Heart of Earth, the Heart of Sky, movement as time, measure and the key numbers of the tzolkin cycle. I have referred to the key numbers of the tzolkin cycle as galactic timing constants or the specific attributes of cyclical movement as imparted and conditioned by our galaxy.

Collectively these specific attributes are largely conditioned by the galactic core or the Heart of Sky. The galactic core may be liked to a pace setter for all of the bodies it contains.  


The Heart of Sky is then the source of the Galaxy’s heart rate so to speak. In the same way that we can detect our heart’s pulse in different parts of our body so can we detect the galaxy’s heart beat here on earth. It is my belief that we detect our galaxies heart beat as a day-night cycle.

A day night-cycle may be likened to a pulsation or oscillation. Our earth’s orbit around the sun is equally a pulsation or oscillation, as is the precessional cycle.

Little hearts (shorter duration) beat faster than bigger hearts (longer duration), but it seems that they beat in harmonic or fractal proportions and that is why we find the key numbers of the Tzolkin cycle in their fractal forms wherever we measure time using days as a basic units of measure or even years, hours, minutes and seconds as I will continue to demonstrate.  


The Heart of Earth, I reason refers to the timing constants particular to our earths spin and its orbit around the sun, whereas the Heart of Sky refers to the timing constants at a galactic and/or universal levels. Bear in mind that spin and orbit is how very large bodies manifest pulsation as oscillation.

Heart of Sky refers to the source of the most fundamental timing constants wherever that actually is and the Heart of Earth is then how those source level constants manifest themselves according to the unique conditions of our solar system.

In our case the cosmic constants are represented by the key numbers of the Tzolkin cycle and the constants of the local conditions are characterized by our day cycle, the earth’s orbit, the moon cycle, the particulars of our sun and the other planets.

The 260 pulses (days) of the tzolkin cycle are “pure cosmic heart beat” and 365 pulses (days) is then how the conditions of our earth-sun relationship modulate the cosmic pulse.  


The fifty-two year cycle is then a demonstration of the perfect harmonic coupling between the Heart of Sky (tzolkin cycle) and the Heart of Earth (solar-earth cycle). At a mythic-metaphorical level it is seen as a renewal and reconciliation and that is why the ancient mesoamericans extinguished all of the ceremonial fires to start new ones.

A 13 day Jubilee was celebrated and it also functioned to reconcile the haab or civil calendar of 365 days as it had fallen out of synch by 13 days over 52 years.

In order to reconcile the discrepancy that results from the extra .25 days per year at the end of a 52 year period one need only add 13 days– a factor of 52. (52 x .25 = 13) 52 x 365.25 = 18993 52 x 365 = 18,980 + 13 = 18993 73 x 260 = 18,980 + 13 = 18993

Now lets divide every key number of the tzolkin cycle into 18,980

  • 18,980 days ÷ 130 day cycles = 146 ÷ 2 = 73 | Number of tzolkin cycles in 52 yrs
  • 18,980 ” ÷ 65 ” = 292 ÷ 4 = 73 | Number of tzolkin cycles in 52 yrs
  • 18,980 ” ÷ 52 ” = 365 ÷ 5 = 73 | Number of tzolkin cycles in 52 yrs
  • 18,980 ” ÷ 20 ” = 949 ÷ 26 = 36.5 one tenth of a year
  • 18,980 ” ÷ 13 ” = 1460 ÷ 52 = 28.07 l average length of a lunar cycle
  • 18,980 ” ÷ 4 ” = 4745 ÷ 52 = 91.25 | length of a season = 91.25 x 4 = 365

Every key number of the Tzolkin cycle divides evenly into 18,980 and every other division revealed numbers critically relevant to either the tzolkin or solar cycle.  


The Clock Cycle is reconciled at 52 years.
It turns out that even the 60 seconds, 60 minutes and 24 hours of mechanized time are reconciled by the core and key numbers of the Tzolkin cycle.

Below are the number of seconds, minutes and hours in the 52 year period times 365 days equals 18,980 days. Here we divide 52 into the product of 18,980 days times 86,400 seconds, and 1440 minutes and 24 hours respectively.

  • 18,980 x 86,400 s = 1,639,872,000 seconds ÷ 52 = 31,536,000
  • 18,980 x 1440 m = 27,331,200 m ÷ 52 = 525,600
  • 18,980 x 24 hsr = 455,520 hrs ÷ 52 = 8760


The 13 day discrepancy between 52 times 365 days and 52 times 365.25 days is also reconciled in seconds, minutes and hours.

The ancient Meso-Americans did not make use of leap days to reconcile the solar cycle with their solar calendar, the Haab. Instead they adjusted the Haab by 13 days at the end of every 52 year cycle.

  • 13 days x 24 hrs = 312
  • 312 ÷ 52 = 6
  • 312 hrs = 18,720 minutes or the same number of days as in 52 tuns. A tun equals 360 days.
  • 18720 m ÷ 52 = 360
  • 18,720 m = 1,123,200 seconds
  • 1,123,200 s ÷ 52 = 21,600

 And finally the Precessional Round

Here too every key number of the Maya calendrical system inclusive of every key number of the Tzolkin cycle divides evenly into the number of days in a Maya precessional cycle. 26,000 tun = 9,360,000 days 26 is a factor 52.

  • 26,000 tun = 65 baktuns = 9,360,000 days ÷ 180,000 = 52
  • 26,000 tun = 1300 katuns ÷ 25 = 52
  • 26,000 tun = 5200 holtuns ÷ 100 = 52
  • 26,000 tun = 36,000 Tzolkin cycles
  • 9,360,000 days ÷ 130 day cycles = 72,000 ÷ 4 = 18,000 | 4 is a factor of 52
  • 9,360,000 ” ÷ 65 ” = 144,000 ÷ 4 = 36,000 | 4 is a factor of 52
  • 9,360,000 ” ÷ 52 ” = 180,000
  • 9,360,000 ” ÷ 20 ” = 68,000 uninals ÷ 9000 = 52
  • 9,360,000 ” ÷ 13 ” = 720,000 | 13 is a factor 52
  • 9,360,000 ” ÷ 4 ” = 2,340,000 ÷ 45,000 = 52


Resolving the discrepancy between the Maya precessional account and the Solar precessional account

There are 9,360,000 days in the Maya precessional account. There are 9,412,529 days in the Solar precessional account. The difference between the two amounts is an amazing 52,529 days. Let’s round that number to 52,520 days.

  • 52,520 ÷ 4 = 13,130
  • 52,520 ÷ 13 = 4040
  • 52,520 ÷ 20 = 2626
  • 52,520 ÷ 52 = 1010
  • 52,520 ÷ 65 = 808
  • 52,520 ÷ 130 = 404
  • 52,520 ÷ 260 = 202
  • 52,520 ÷ 26 = 2020


The number of days in a whole precessional unit of 70.56 years essentially equals the same number of years in a precessional cycle!

The precession rate is 1 day of shift in the position of the stars over 70.56 years. One day of shift means that if X star was positioned at xyz coordinates on December 7, 1977 at 12:00 am, then in 70.56 years the same star will be at the same xyz coordinates but only one day earlier on December 6th at 12:00am.

Now look at what we uncover when we convert 70.56 years into days—70.56 x 365.25 = 25,772.04 days. The number of years in the precessional cycle is 25,770.1 years according to our best modern day assessment.

The number of days in a precessional unit misses equaling the number of years by precessional cycle by a mere 1.94 days spread out over 25,770.1 days. The number of days involved in a one degree shift over 70.56 years is the fractal equivalent of the number of years that it takes to complete the entire prececessional cycle!  


The 26,000 Year Cycle Reconciled

  • 26,000 x 365 d = 9,490,000 d ÷ 260 d = 36,500 or a fractal of the 365 days
  • 26,000 x 365.25 d = 9496500 d ÷ 52 = 182,625
  • 9,496,500 d minus 9,490,000 = 6500 ÷ 52 = 125


I have demonstrated…

  • how the master numbers 26 and 52 and their fractals and factors reconcile every solar-terrestrial timing cycle and its fractions.
  • how the key numbers of the Tzolkin cycle reconcile all of the key numbers of Old World timing system.
  • how the key numbers of the Tzolkin cycle reconcile all of the master timing units of the entire Maya-Meso American Calendrical system.
  • how the Old World timing system is integrated with the New World Mesoamerican Calendrical system.
