Of the Mayan Calendar

Post by Road104 » 22 Aug 2008 06:33

I found these a while ago, but have not thought to put them on here yet.

I am sure most of you have already discovered this, but I feel I should provide it for those who have not.

This is a table of the Mayan Long Count Calendar:

Table of Long Count units
Days Long Count period Long Count period Approx solar years
1 = 1 K'in
20 = 20 K'in = 1 Winal 1/18th
360 = 18 Winal = 1 Tun 1
7,200 = 20 Tun = 1 K'atun 20
144,000 = 20 K'atun = 1 B'ak'tun 395

Now, hopefully, all of you should see the significance brought to us by these numbers. If not, I would be eager to explain.

Truth to you all.

I apologize. These forums cause troubles for what I wish to present.

This should make things more clear, I would hope.

Truth to you all.

One of two calends that I find quite valid. And the moreso for introspection. For specialization in the exterior world, I choose another.

The Babylonian and Vedic calends are quite interesting as well.

There is much of use lying about.
