0110. It Started Here -- Pacal -- Mayan 'Shield'

And so, this is the guy who started the whole thing..."Character One"
and a character indeed

I'm going to show you what he showed me. 

This blog will suggest that the Mayan Long Count calendar, which has been said by most scholars to be 'out of use', is perhaps still in use today in our 'modern' systems... and that The Long Count, is something much more than just a number cycle... you will find these number patterns also, in our holy books, our measures as well as our means.

Get to know Pacal first.  

Outright, he mutates and he has a huge amount of pride about the accuracy of things.
Please keep in mind, I am not a Mayan scholar either, I'm just going to show you what he showed me... 
... and yes, I am aware that he's been 'dead' for quite a long time they say, but the current state of his being is not within the scope of this blog... but the numbers I'm going to show, are  his information, as related.

and I do consider myself an expert in these numbers.

K'inich Janaab' Pakal 


The Message:

“ the people of the Earth the count of the Tun uc, the count of the seven, the four, and the thirteen. In this way..."

PACAL [also known as Pakal, Hanab-Pakal, Pacal the Great, Lord Shield Pacal, Lord Shield-Pacal, Subject A, Sunshield, Sun-Shield, Lady 8 Flower]. Probably the greatest ruler of Palenque. He ruled from (A.D. 615) to (A.D. 683). He ascended the throne at age 12 years 125 days, and died at age 80 years 158 days. He is entombed in the sarcophagus of the Temple of the Inscriptions.

"Palenque sculptors captured the essence of a youthful Pakal the Great in this modeled stucco head, discovered under the sarcophagus in which the king was interred, deep within the Temple of Inscriptions. Broken off at the neck, the head may have been wrenched from a sculpture at the time of the funeral, or it may have been a revered work salvaged from the crippling attack on the city in the mid-7th century."
Mary Miller & Simon Martin, Courtly Art of the Ancient Maya, p. 214 Maya kings were often associated with the Maize God. Here, Pakal is shown here in the guise of the young Maize God. His upswept hair is meant to represent corn leaves on a ripening ear"

Pacal II, also known as Pacal the Great (the most recent work gives his full name as K'inich Janaab' Pakal (26 March 603 - 31 August 683), was ruler of the Maya polity of Palenque. Pacal ascended the throne at age 12 on July 29, 615, and lived to the age of 80. The name "Pacal" means "shield" in the Maya language.

Pacal saw expansion of Palenque's power in the western part of the Maya states, and initiated a building program at his capital that produced some of Maya civilization's finest art and architecture. He was preceded as ruler of Palenque by his mother Lady Sak K'uk'. As the Palenque dynasty seems to have had Queens only when there was no eligible male heir, Sak K'uk' transferred rulership to her son upon his official maturity. After his death Pacal II was succeeded by his son Chan Bahlum II. A younger son, Kan Xul II, succeeded his brother Chan Bahlum II.

After his death, Pacal the Great was worshiped as a god, and said to communicate with his descendants. Pacal the Great was buried within the Temple of Inscriptions. Though Palenque had been examined by archaeologists before, the secret to opening his tomb—closed off by a stone slab with stone plugs in the holes, which had until then escaped the attention of archaeologists—was discovered by Mexican archaeologist Alberto Ruz Lhuillier in 1948. It took four years to clear the rubble from the stairway leading down to Pacal the Great’s tomb, but was finally uncovered in 1952. His skeletal remains were still lying in his coffin, wearing a jade mask and bead necklaces, surrounded by sculptures and stucco reliefs depicting the King's transition to divinity and figures from Maya mythology.

That the bones within the tomb are really those of Pacal the Great himself is under debate due to the fact that the analysis of wear on the skeleton’s teeth places the age of the owner at death as 40 years younger than Pacal the Great would’ve been at his death. Epigraphers insist that the inscriptions on the tomb indicate that it is indeed Pacal II entombed within, and that he died at the age of 80 after ruling for around 70 years. Some contest that the glyphs refer to two people with the same name or that an unusual method for recording time was used, but other experts in the field say that allowing for such possibilities would go against everything else that is known about the Maya calendar and records of events. The most commonly accepted explanation for the irregularity is that Pacal the Great, being an elite, had access to softer, less abrasive food than the average person so that his teeth naturally acquired less wear. Despite the controversy, it remains one of the most spectacular finds of Maya archeology. A replica of his tomb is found at the National Museum of Anthropology and History in Mexico City.


"During the height of the Classic Maya civilization, Lord Pacal Votan ruled the empire of Nah Chan Palenque (in present day Chiapas, Mexico), for 52 years.

He is revered as the chief engineer who guided the Mayan mission of inscripting stone monuments with precise astronomical and astrological information during his reign in the 10th Baktun (435-830 AD). "

"Known as a magician of time, he understood mathematics, or numbers, as a type of language that transcends the subjectivity of human verbal experience. His sentiment "All is number. *God is a number. God is in All." is an intriguing way to catalogue the Maya's message that we are intimately linked with and informed by the Galaxy. All of life is ordered by the same basic, re-occurring patterns.

*In the Yucatec Mayan language, the word "Hunab Ku" means Source - The One, Giver of Movement and Measure, the galactic core, "God".

"The ancient Maya were great visionaries. They dedicated thousands of years to the observations of cycles of time. When the elders developed the calendars, they entered into the cosmic energy to discover the truth. The Maya understood everything is cyclic in nature. They studied the cycle of insects, plants, humans, the earth, the solar system, cycles of the macro and micro cosmos, Universal cycles, and even linear cycles. They created 20 calendars. Of these 20, the western world knows of 5. Today the living Maya are allowed to speak of 15 of these calendars. 5 of these Calendars they cannot speak of at this time. These are the Calendars of our cosmic ancestors. "

2012, It is also the year of the next Venus transit. June 8 2004 was the last one, June 6 2012 is the next one.
“A transit of Venus is so rare that, up to June 8, 2004, no human then alive had witnessed this celestial event. Simple as transits may seem, they are instrumental in defining our place in the cosmos. Historically, global expeditions timed transits of Venus to quantify the size of the solar system. In the modern era, astronomers use spacecraft and other techniques to seek earth-class planets transiting distant stars. Then next transit of Venus is June 5-6, 2012.”
