Setting Time By The Moon Instead Of The Georgian Calendar
By James Donahue
The late Author-Professor José Argüelles believed clocks
are blight on humanity and that the 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 this workable model world-wide by mid-2004 would 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 passed on July
26. Blame the Vatican for blinding the eyes of the masses. Blame the Vatican for creating our twisted system of measuring
A paper written by Arguelles in about 1995 promoted the
concept of adopting the 13-moon calendar, which he argued would be an important first step in a necessary evolution of the
“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, Arguelles explained.
“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 which mustered the political 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 humanity.
Thus the monstrous cult known as the church won an important
battle at that key pivotal point in history. And if Arguelles is correct, this is leading to the total downfall of us all.
He believes our last chances to save ourselves passed almost unnoticed with our failure to put our minds in tune with the
real time of the cosmos.
