Crop Circles and a Mayan messenger

When I began my last blog on the Maya, I wanted to talk about their system of math, but decided it was too long to include in that post.

Then I viewed Kim Griffin’s blog: “Introducing Mathematical Monday, a time to explore numbers and patterns and their place in the universe.”

It inspired how I would focus on Mayan math for this post. Without giving a long explanation of their system, I’ve included a chart that is self-explanatory: dots=ones, bars=fives and a shell symbol for 0. It is a base 20 system unlike our base 10 system.

These numbers can be seen on many stela in the Yucatan documenting dates of important occurrences (past and future events—like an important battle by a chieftain, a birth date, or the beginning and end of their cycle that began in 3114 BC., etc.)

On July 5, 2009 there was a crop circle that appeared near Silbury Hill in southern England that floored me. I immediately saw the distinctive Mayan numbers within this crop circle. 

I calculated the numbers but couldn’t make any sense of it—I thought it might have to do with the Dec. 21, 2012 end date (which is not the end of the world-merely the end of a cycle and we don’t know what that means; we can only speculate), but it wasn’t. I put it out of my mind knowing that sooner or late someone would figure it out.

I will let those interested, go to this site and peruse all the connections the author has made in detail. One connection is the date a comet came near earth around 32 BC and of the comet expected this year of 2012. (nearly 300 million miles away and barreling toward us. The intruder from deep space, called comet Elenin, crosses Earth's orbit on its inbound leg and again on its outbound swing around the sun later this year.)

Does this indicate that another cycle is closing? And what of the unmistakable symbols in this crop circle for the legendary Quetzalcoatl, the Plumed Serpent messenger? Is he returning this year?

Agreed, you will leave this post with more questions than answers, but maybe it will stimulate your creativity like red string theory and the “coincidences” all around us.

An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break.

Not limited to lovers (the subject of my novel that dips into that Mayan past) it means all the connections in the universe—so a crop circle in England is somehow tied to the plumed serpent (Quezalcoatl) and the math of the Maya indicating comets coming toward earth, beginning and ending cycles and . . . 

What does it all mean? What do you think?

Ooh! Gives me shivers. I think this is fascinating. Thanks Cora! I'm off to read the links you listed above...

Wow! You're right. More questions than answers, and the more I think about it, the more questions I have. But then, isn't that the way with any good topic worth spending brain power on??

I've found that once you start looking into these types of things (which I have a tendency to do) it can really be a rabbit hole and blow your mind. I don't know what it all means ~ I guess that's why I'm so interested in it ~ hoping one day that it will just all click or something.

As far as comets, etc.. I would imagine that it's a definite possibility of impact with Earth, since we've been hit before. It really is just a matter of time. Maybe by that time, we'll have a plan (and Bruce Willis) to land on that comet and blow it to bits before it hits us!

Great post! (and thanks so much for the link back!!)

The meteor link is a scientific one--there is a meteor coming close to earth this year, Elenin. I didn't mean to freak you out. It is not intended to hit earth, just come really, really close.

This is crazy cool stuff, Cora! Reading your post makes me even more aware of all the things I really know so little about -- but wish I did! Surely the mysteries in our world are exceptional, captivating and oh, so exciting, but for me, I find it's necessary to digest little pieces at a time or my circuits go haywire, so thanks for sharing your wisdom.
