Setting Time By The Moon
Instead Of Clocks
By James Donahue
Argüelles believes clocks are a bane on humanity and that the archaic Georgian Calendar, created and mandated by the church,
is an archaic way of controlling and operating our lives.
He 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 believes, 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. Blame the Vatican for blinding the eyes of the
masses. 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.
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 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 angelic-controlled
church won an important battle at that key pivotal point in history that has led to the total downfall of us all. If Arguelles
is correct, our last chances to save ourselves passed almost unnoticed only weeks ago with our failure to put our minds in
tune with the real time of the cosmos.
