José Argüelles is the man who first introduced the date December 21, 2012 into mass consciousness with The Mayan Factor. The initiator of the Harmonic Convergence global peace meditation of 1987, Argüelles is also the founder of the annual Whole Earth Festival (1970) in California, and one of the originators of the Earth Day concept. Following a life-changing vision at age 14, atop the Pyramid of the Sun in Teotihuacan, Mexico, Arguelles began a lifelong journey to discover the underlying mathematics and prophecies associated with the Mayan calendar. By uncovering the Mayan codes, Arguelles discovered the telepathic nature of time. He also realized that the human species is living in artificial time, which is disrupting its planetary environment and destroying its civilization. To expand his vision of world peace, Arguelles co-founded the Planet Art Network (PAN) and the World Thirteen Moon Calendar Change Peace Movement. He is presently Director of the Galactic Research Institute of the Foundation for the Law of Time, and most recently convened the First Bioregional Noosphere Congresses held at numerous sites world-wide. Through the Noosphere II research project he is exploring synchronic time and states of consciousness, co-producing the seven voume series, Cosmic History Chronicles, and promoting the vision of Earth as a work of art.
THE MAYAN PURPOSE AND THE GALACTIC BEAM
The purpose of the Maya coming to this planet was very specific: to leave behind a definite set of clues and information about the nature and purpose of our planet at this particular time in the solar system and in the galactic field. The Maya came here at a very specific time and made their observations. They left behind observations about the relationship of our planet to at least seven inner planets and information about the nature of the galactic beam our planet is now passing through, and which it has been passing through since 3113 BC. Once they made calibrations about the relationship of our planet to this galactic beam and to the other planets and to the sun, their job was done. One of the mysteries of the Maya has to do with their calendar, or what has been interpreted as their calendar. If the classic Maya didn’t begin building their temples and cities until AD 100-300, why were they using a precise calendar with an initiation point equivalent to August 13, 3113 BC? This calendar is usually referred to as the “Great Cycle,” and runs from 3113 BC to AD 2012. The question is, “why did they have a calendar that begins in 3113 BC, when they do not seem to have really begun to flourish as a civilization until the early centuries of the present (last) millennium?”.
When I assumed perhaps the Maya were originally from outside of the solar system and from another portion of the galaxy, I also looked at the actual mathematical system that was being used to define their calendar. It was often assumed that the Maya invented the calendar to keep track of agriculture and planting seasons. I went back and assumed that the mathematical system existed first, and was then adapted to a terrestrial calendar. As I looked at the mathematics, I was struck by the amazing quality of harmonic numbers in the calendar. The calendar was actually measuring some type of harmonic wave, some type of large wave or beam that had particular cycles of fluctuation and amazing harmonic properties. It quickly struck me that the Great Cycle isn’t so much a measurement of time as it is the measurement of this planet’s passage through a beam that is 5,125 years wide, or 5,125 years in diameter. Naturally, it’s difficult to be aware that we are passing through a beam that is being generated from the galactic core and mediated through the sun, the local star. The Earth is passing through it, as are all the other planets, but it seems to have particular meaning for the Earth. Astrophysicists, however know of such beams, calling them density waves. These waves sweep through the galaxy influencing major stages of galactic evolution such as the birth of stars. With this in mind, I further understood that this beam – wave harmonic of history – was a type of synchronization beam whose purpose was to accelerate and synchronize the planetary DNA such, that by the end of the cycle, humanity would realize it was a unified planetary organism.
In 2012, we will be at a place on the galactic spiral, where only maybe one turn up on this particular beam, where we were in 3113 BC, and what that means is that there’s an evolutionary jump. The cycle that I’ve been talking about, the Great Cycle, is only a subfactor of another larger cycle and all cycles—they go up (macro), and they go down (micro). The larger cycle that we’re dealing with is an approximately 26,000-year cycle that also ends in 2012. If you go back 26,000 years, this cycle roughly encompasses the evolutionary stage Homo sapiens. The peak of the last Ice Age was in 24,000 BC. This is when what we call “modern humanity” emerged. So, this 26,000-year cycle actually encompasses five Great Cycles. We’re in the fifth and last of a set of Great Cycles that began in 24,000 BC. It’s on this basis that we’re looking at 2012 as being a very, very critical juncture. It’s what I refer to as “galactic synchronization,” and it also is a major evolutionary shift. The next evolutionary shift will occur in 2012 – and that shift, a change in frequency, will take us directly into the noosphere.
There are other dimensions of reality, and there are more evolved stages of being and intelligence than ours. The universe is benign and compassionate. No one’s out to destroy us. UFO activity has increased since we entered a critical pollution stage, which followed the introduction of radioactive waste into the environment in 1945. It’s been since that point that the modern phenomenon of UFOs has been with us. There is definitely a relationship between the Mayan factor and the UFO phenomenon, and I think that we can anticipate that the UFO activity will intensify. We must understand and realize that we are dealing with galactic civilization. That realization will facilitate a return to our highest being, to our own receivers opening up, and the information of the Mayan factor, will be information easily accessible to everybody. -José Argüelles
