Keeping Time By The Moon
By James Donahue
The late author-professor José Argüelles believed clocks are a hardship
on humanity and that the Georgian Calendar, created and mandated by the church, is an archaic way of controlling and operating
Known as the father of the Harmonic Convergence, Arguelles advocated
replacing the Georgian Calendar with an even older, but more accurate 13-Moon – 28 Day calendar once used by the Mayans
that he said is a "perfectly balanced solar/lunar measure" that he believed would have given the planet a new start toward
a one-world government "and a shot at peace."
Arguelles not only promoted the lunar calendar, he warned that a failure
to adopt it world-wide by mid-2004 will instrument the destruction of the planet and our own extinction. Our only chance to
save ourselves, he believed, was to put ourselves in sync with the natural cycle of real time, which is fourth-dimensional.
The final date for us to make this shift, however, passed us by on
July 26, 2004. If he had been right we could blame the Vatican for blinding the eyes of the masses. We also could blame the
Vatican for creating the wrong system of measuring time.
A paper written by Arguelles in about 1995 promoted the concept of
adopting the 13-moon calendar, which he said would be an important first step in a necessary evolution of the human mindset.
"With the 13-moon calendar, we will actually activate a bio-telepathic
circuit that hooks up with the consciousness of the solar system, which is kept in the orbits of the planets," wrote Arguelles.
"When we are functioning fourth dimensionally – and we cannot fully function fourth-dimensionally until we’re
out of the 12:60 time structure – we will have cosmic consciousness."
The "12:60 time structure" is the present and inaccurate way we presently
measure mechanical time with a 12-month calendar year and 60-minute clock, says Arguelles.
"Everything we know about time is rooted in the clock and the clock
isn’t a measure of time. A two-dimensional plane divided into 12 equal parts of 30 degrees each is a measure of space
– substituted to be a measure of time. All civilization is governed by this erroneous concept that time is something
that is measured by the clock."
Cultures all over the world measured time for centuries, not by mechanical
clocks, but by seasons, rhythms and subtle shifts in nature that "influence and enhance social interaction," said Arguelles.
The Mayans understood this and devised many different calendars, including the 13-moon calendar that probably best followed
the natural Earth rhythms and cycles of the moon.
The same 13-Moon/28-Day count also was used by the Druids, the Essenes,
and the ancient Egyptians. It was replaced by the Roman Catholic Church which imposed a revised Julian Calendar (named for
Julius Caesar) to the Julian-Gregorian Calendar (named for Pope Gregory VIII) as a symbol of dominance by European conquerors
over the Gnostic civilizations, including the Maya, Inca and Aztec peoples in the New World.
The League of Nations proposed adoption of the 13-Moon Calendar in
1933, but the movement was stopped by the Vatican that mustered the support to block the change.
There was a spiritual reason for the Vatican’s opposition. The
church apparently knew that the moment humanity linked with the intergalactic Fourth-Dimensional system of understanding time,
organized religions would be obsolete and unnecessary. They would lose their control on the masses.
Thus the church won an important battle at that key pivotal point
in history that may be leading to the total downfall of us all. If Arguelles was correct, our last chances to save ourselves
passed almost unnoticed five years ago with our failure to put our minds in tune with the real time of the cosmos.
