Squaring the Mayas - part 2

    I recommend to first read Squaring the Mayas - part 1, before reading this Thought.
  This thought is not answering the question what to expect when the Mayan Calendar ends on 21 December 2012, but it does shine light on a feature of the calendar that so far has stayed unnoticed. As I have shown in Squaring the Mayas - part 1, the foundation of the Mayan Calendar is, through the latitudes of its different elements, rooted in Squaring the Circle!
That is already amazing by itself, but it goes further. The Calendar is not only rooted in Squaring the Circle, it is fully based on it!

Lets take a few steps back. The fact that the Earth axis is tilted, causes the seasons to happen while the Earth is revolting round the sun. For our perception the sun travels during a year from the equator (21 March) to the north to the tropic of cancer (21 June). From there south again, passing the equator (21 September), to the tropic of Capricorn (21 December) and back north to the equator to complete a year (21 March). All places between the tropics will see the sun straight overhead twice a year. Izapa, the foundation place of the Maya calendar, is one of those places. It will see the sun overhead twice during a year, first at 1 May and later in the year on 12 August. This fact of life contains a unique feature. Between 1 May and 12 August are 105 days and between 12 August (going further in time) and 1 May are 260 days. It is these 260 days, the number 260 (13 times 20), that forms the foundation of the Maya calendar. It was when I was studying the numbers 105 and 260 when a did a stunning discovery.


I decided to project the 365 days of a year round a circle. Since a circle is usually divided in 360 degrees, every single day would be just under 1 degree. The diagram above on the left shows the result. The angle of the pie slice formed by the 105 days, is 103,56163 degrees. I was in shock when I saw that angle. I immediately recognized it significance. The angle formed by Squaring the Circle (a square and a circle with identical perimeter and circumference) is 103,52 degrees! So close! See diagram above on the right.

In other words the division of a year in a 105 day part and a 260 day part is nearly perfectly defining squaring the circle. With other words, the Maya calendar is defined by or based on Squaring the Circle. Wow! And this is done with a accuracy of 99,96% Unheard of!
The 99,96% did immediately set of all kinds of alarm bells for me. I had seen that number, that kind of accuracy, before. I had seen it in the Barbury Castle formation of 1 June 2008, the so called Pi-formation.


It was called the Pi-formation because it had the number Pi hidden in it. But not only that. The formation was also defining squaring the circle with an accuracy of 99,96% in a very elaborate way. The same 99,96%
See my article
Seven, Nine, Ten and Pi.

I have always asked my self what the deeper meaning of this crop circle was. Can it be we are looking at a new “Maya calendar”. Is it the same as the Maya calendar. Or is it perhaps the replacement for the Maya calendar once this one has ended on 21 December 2012. Who knows. How ever it is I find the similarities far beyond remarkable and also far beyond coincidence.

So, the Mayan Calendar is rooted in Squaring the Circle purely by means of the physical locations, the latitudes, of the Tropics and of Izapa. And at the same time the latitude of Izapa (105 and 260 days between two zeniths) makes that the Mayan Calendar is also based on Squaring the Circle by means of number. Wow!

This is way beyond coincidence and deserves all our attention.

Do realize that at the moments of zenith (the sun directly overhead), which is the foundation of the Mayan Calendar, the gravitational force of the Earth and the sun-light are exactly opposing each other. Matter and Spirit are opposed! Yin and Yang. Which brings us back to the start of Squaring the Mayas – part 1.

Where does it all end?
