Let us move now directly into the promised material from David Wilcock on the Mayan Calendar.

The Amazing Synchronicity of Chatelainís Mayan Calendar

Perhaps the single most interesting thing that we come across as we get closer and closer to understanding this solar cycle is the triangulation around 1999 and 2000. There are endless numbers of apparently reliable prophecies pointing to this discrete period of time, not 2012, as the point of major change. The Cayce Readings, referencing what has to be the exact same solar cycle as indicated by Ra and the Mayan Calendar, called attention to 1998. The question we must then ask ourselves is this. If 2012 is supposed to be "it," then why are so many prophecies focusing on a time that is significantly earlier than this?

If we look at the Great Cycle strictly from the perspective of the sunspots, we might then assume that the interest in 2000 could stem from the fact that the smallest "sunspot cycle" is known to operate in 11-year increments. We know that this 11-year cycle has an effect, disrupting radio communications and increasing solar particle emissions. Current calculations place the next sunspot peak date as occurring in May of 2000. That fact alone suggests strongly that there is a connection, as most people are well aware of the May 5, 2000 planetary lineup that will occur. This was made public in the opening episodes of the TV show "Millennium," as well as Richard Nooneís 5 / 5 / 2000: Ice, The Ultimate Disaster.

The simple fact that the second-to-last sunspot peak occurs in 2000 might be enough for most people to be convinced that this explains the position of Cayceís prophecies. The Ra Material indicates that the energy coming out of the Sun is indeed multi-dimensional, and thus if there is an increase of it, we can expect an increasing pressure of fourth-density energy. We also know that we have major social and planetary changes listed in the Cayce Readings for 1998 and a possible pole shift in 2001. So, if we pin the tail on the donkey between those two years given by Cayce, we have a "happy medium" of 1999-2000.

So, it makes good sense that the peaks of the 11-year sunspot cycle would also represent peaks in this increasing energy. Since May 2000 is the last peak in the sunspot cycle before 2012, we can expect that during that year, the 4D energies would increase to their absolute highest possible point before the final event itself occurs in 2012. The intensity of this "high point" could conceivably bring in a burst of fourth-density energy that is strong enough to create the Ascension or Rapture experience, where human entities spontaneously shift frequencies and rise from third-density to fourth-density vibrations. [But wait, there is even going to be more evidence than this.]

Elkins never asked the question of the 2000 date in the Ra Material, so we have to find out for ourselves what the true answer is here. But we can see right away how neatly this ties in with the Biblical notions of the Second Coming of Christ ushering in 1000 years of peace. It would certainly make good sense that this 1000 years would be timed in accordance with our own calendrical cycles, and therefore beginning in 2000. This has been the belief of many Biblical scholars for long periods of time. If anyone had ever come to Earth who should be capable understanding these cycles enough to make prophecies, Jesus would obviously be at the top of the list!

However, the purpose of this chapter is to illustrate an even deeper aspect of the Solar Cycle that has never before been correlated together in the way that it is here. We will cite the efforts of another Maurice C., this time not Maurice Cotterell but Maurice Chatelain, a former NASA scientist and astrophysicist from France. The synchronicity between these two names is another interesting "hint" of a connection in some higher sense. In his now rare, out of print book from 1971 entitled Our Ancestors Came from Outer Space, Chatelain makes an apparently airtight scientific and mathematical case for the Mayan calendar being dated incorrectly.

Before we explain his case, we need to qualify all of this by stating that Wilcockís readings have now stated emphatically that Chatelain was indeed wrong, in one sense. Chatelain reconfigured the Mayan Calendar based on new information that he himself discovered. This reconfiguration fit in so nicely with other pieces of data that Wilcock was convinced that Chatelain had to be right, and wrote it into previous editions of this book. Even though the reconfigured dates were wrong, the information itself is vitally important in understanding this cycle.

What we will learn as a result of Chatelainís work is that in order to understand this cycle, we need to watch Jupiter and Saturn, specifically when they go into conjunction with each other. It is for this reason that even greater wonder is associated with May of 2000, as Jupiter and Saturn reach conjunction on May 28th, 2000. This will prove to be the "missing link" we were searching for.

Remember that Ra refers to the "outward expanding and inward coagulating" energy that is responsible for our Solar Cycle. Raís quote makes it clear that we have to go beyond simply studying the Sun - this "pulsating energy" would be the entire Solar System. Therefore, we do indeed need to consider the cycles of ALL the planets in order to see how this cycle functions. Since Jupiter and Saturn are the largest, we can also expect that they will exert the greatest force on this cycle. It is for this reason that we need to pay very close attention to them.

So, what we will do here is to first present Chatelainís case from the perspective of our original book, which assumed that he was correct. Do not be misled as we do this. After we go through this explanation and lay out the case, we will bring in new information from Cotterell that confirms why the conventional dating has to be the accurate one. And then at last, we will rectify the two camps of data together with information based on the revelations in the Wilcock Readings.

In his book, which actually covers many different subjects, Chatelain discusses the bitter war between the French and the Germans considering the seeming ambiguity of the Mayan Calendarís start date. This occurred when the calendar was first discovered, as there were actually two copies found, and they did not, in fact, precisely agree with each other. It took a great deal of work to finally arrive at the proper starting date. Since so much effort was involved in resolving these conflicting areas of data, Chatelain concedes that our now-universal adaptation of the "winning" date set is not necessarily grounded. Chatelainsí own start date perfectly coincides with a massive astrological event that lends great credibility to his date system.

[We do need to keep in mind here that times have now changed. Cotterell has now definitively tied in the "conventional" date set with the precise appearance of Venus at the horizon during the Equinox, known as the "Birth of Venus." Though we have not yet discussed it, Cotterell has also shown how the Maya calibrated the entire Solar Cycle off of the cycles of Venusí revolutions. Therefore, there is a planetary / astrological connection to the conventional date set as well as to Chatelainís date system. This planetary / astrological connection strengthens the hyperdimensional nature of this cycle as occurring throughout the entire Solar System, not just the Sun itself.]

In the year targeted by Chatelainís research as the beginning of the most recent cycle of the Mayan Calendar, there is a major four-way planetary conjunction in one quadrant of the sky, consisting of all the outer planets, which obviously are much slower-moving than the inner ones. Chatelain then counts three cycles back to 18,600 years ago, and shows that during the start of that cycle, there was an extremely rare double eclipse, where a total solar and total lunar eclipse happened within mere months of each other. Both conjunctions are precise enough with the new dating system that there can be no accident; the crucial dates in the Chatelain Mayan Calendar are associated with major astrological events.

Astrologers ascribe very high significance to conjunctions such as eclipses and 4-way linkups, as they seem to multiply the influences from the different planets, and can thus cause very powerful changes in people on the Earth. One might suggest that they could change or destabilize the Earthís magnetic field as well, though nearly all astrophysicists will disagree with this. If there is an aspect of destabilization that is involved, it might help explain why the magnetic pole shift is associated with this Great Cycle. If there is indeed a planetary action that is somehow destabilizing to magnetic fields, how might it work?

A mid-1998 special issue of Scientific American devoted to the Cosmos showed that the size of the magnetic field of Jupiter is larger than the physical size of the Sun. Even though these magnetic effects do not apparently hold sway in three dimensions, we cannot automatically assume that there are not higher-dimensional effects involved. It will become more and more evident in following chapters that a planetary magnetic field is far more than a simple question of north and south; it could be likened unto a gigantic, geometric crystal of hyperdimensional energy, interwoven with its planetary counterparts in a giant web. This is exactly as we were told by Ra in The Ra Material, as well as the Cayce Readings.

Returning to the point of this section, Chatelain again indicates massive conjunctions and eclipses with the start dates of the Mayan Calendar. And now, in 1999, we are heading into another massive four-way planetary conjunction, which occurs simultaneously with a total solar eclipse. The actual conjunction involves almost all of the planets in a Grand Cross formation, where they are all lined up in a giant square, so to speak. The date of this conjunction is August 11, 1999, and at 11:11 a.m., the sun is fully darkened, reaching its corona directly over Greenwich, England. Greenwich is ground zero for our time measurement system, the city that the Prime Meridian was designed to penetrate through.

We will indeed be coming back to this Aug. 11 conjunction in great detail, but for now, chew on this. On page 225 of Gilbert and Cotterellís Mayan Prophecies, it says this:

"The start of the Mayan Long Count calendar is usually taken as 3114 BC... There is also not 100% agreement as to whether the starting day of the Long Count... is 12 August or 10 August."

Remember the Aug. 11, 1999 conjunction date we just mentioned? Surprised? Out of all 365 days in the year, the scientists only argue over two dates for the start of the Mayan Calendar, and this eclipse on Aug. 11 is smack-dab in the middle. We have to then wonder if there is some hyperdimensional significance to the position of the Earth in orbit on Aug. 11. This might have to do with its tilt angle in relation to the Sun, and how this angle affects the magnetic lines of the Global Grid. This one clue is something that helps point in the direction of the 1999 "11:11" event as actually being the first "wave" of Ascension.

And, there is much more to the 11:11 conjunction than just this. We will let Joe Mason bring up the rear on this point, since he did such a good job. This intensive essay can be found at www.greatdreams.com/eclipse.htm. Mason shows us that this same exact conjunction was secretly encoded into the Book of Revelation, as the myth of the Four Beasts of the Apocalypse. Each of the four beasts represent the four astrological symbols in which the "Grand Cross" takes place. Joan Sckrabulis wrote an entire book about this.

Also, Rev. 11:11 speaks directly of Ascension: "After the 3 1/2 daysÖ God appeared on a cloud and said, "Come up here," and they were borne up into the heavensÖ" The metaphor of the 3 1/2 has to do with humanityís leap from the third density into the fourth.

Another brand new and fantastic update on this subject came Wilcockís way in February of 1999, right before this book was to be republished in its new form on the Internet. It has indeed increased Wilcockís confidence in the first Ascension occurring in August of 1999. This data comes about through the work of John Mini, in a work entitled Day of Destiny. The full Internet write-up on the book can be found at Miniís website, entitled www.dayofdestiny.com. A few quotes from the site:

"August 13, 1999 was forecast by the ancient Aztecs to be a profound turning point in history. Aztec culture and spiritual practice were highly focused on this date which for them was hundreds of years in the futureÖ

Classical interpretations of the Aztec Sun Calendar also mean our world could be destroyed by movement, or earthquakes, on August 13, 1999 if we donít attain a global consciousness of peace, love, understanding, and harmony with the kingdom of nature by that timeÖ

The glyph at the top of the Aztec Sun Calendar is called 13 Cane. It has many interpretations. One of them is August 13, 1999Ö Cane means hollowness, emptiness and rigidity. Nothingness is at the core of matter. Three-dimensional space has a hollow structureÖ 13 [also] relates to the renewal of the sacred Aztec ritual fire every Mexican century of fifty-two years. The Mexican believed in August 13, 1999 so strongly, they ritually demolished and destroyed their entire civilization every fifty-two years as a dress rehearsal. *

[If what Mini says here is true, then we have a direct and very interesting connection between the "big one" in 1507, which we remember is called the Toxiuh Molpilli. In that case, it was directly tied into the presence of the Pleiades overhead at exactly 12 Midnight. So, as we have just said in the last chapter,

"The Aztecs watched for the culmination of the Pleiades at midnight (in 1507,) which would have happened around 11 NovemberÖ" Now, what is the date of 11 November? You got it. 11/11Ö"

Thus, it starts to look like less and less of a coincidence that the Grand 11:11 Conjunction occurs only two days prior to this "final" Toxiuh Molpilli that Mini is referring to here. We now go back to Miniís discussion of the symbolism of this date.]

ÖOverall, 13 Cane carries the notions of movement, freedom, change, simplification, the sky, Heaven, visions, inspiration, emptying, completion, returning to origin, centrality, choice, possibility and the beginning of a new cycle. Does it seem like the Mexica are conveying a hopeful, encouraging and positive message to us across time? August 13, 1999 could be a very significant day for humanity.

The August 13, 1999 forecast flies in the face of everything we know about predictability and probability. In a system with as many variables as the ecosystem of planet Earth, thereís no way we know of to make a prediction of such all-encompassing magnitude. The equation is just too complex. According to our current level of mathematical predictive science, no one could make a forecast of such accuracy.

But what if someone did?"

Indeed, Miniís question is answered quite astonishingly well right within these pages. There is a close connection between the Aztec Sun Calendar and the Mayan Calendar, and yet the ending dates are different. It is the timing of the J-S conjunctions, and their powerful effect on the Solar Cycle, that provides the perfect explanation for why the Aztecs would have zeroed in on this date. The pull of the astrological forces surrounding the Aug. 11, 1999 period are obviously strong enough that we have several completely independent sources of information unilaterally cross-validating each other!

[However, the Aztec data might not add up. If we count in 52-year units from the 1507 date of the Toxiuh Molpilli referred to above, we zero in on 1975 and 2027. That makes it more likely to have been a "psychic" piece of guidance. The closeness of the dates is just extremely, extremely persuasive, regardless of the immediately visible "problems."]

So, we have already seen that Chatelain associates the start of the Mayan Calendar with a massive planetary conjunction. Again, what we have here is an indication that the Mayans were very interested in astrology, and the Great Cycle is intimately connected with it.

The mainstream wisdom does not associate the Calendar with conjunctions, although it is correlated with the cycles of Venus through Cotterell. Chatelain paints a completely different picture. The Mayan Calendar is a multifaceted astrological tool, in fact quite ingenuous and very useful once understood. The Calendar is not simply one cycle; it is measured through smaller cycles, which must also be considered.

The Mayan Calendar can be measured with several different counting units. The smallest of these is the katun, which is approximately 20 years in length, at 7,200 days. One Mayan Calendar cycle of approximately 5,200 years consists of 260 of these katuns. This number 260 proves to be the most sacred number in all of Mayan science and mysticism. We will explore the new information that suggests why it was so important as we progress. This number was so crucial and sacred to their understanding of the universe that they actually assigned it a name, calling it the tzolkin.

In order to break the Calendar up into more manageable pieces, they also grouped the 20-year katuns together into groups of 20. Each of these groups of 20 katuns is about 400 years long, or 144,000 days, and the name they created for this was the baktun. Since there are 260 of the katuns in one Calendar Cycle, you would need 13 groups of 20 in order to have everything add up. So, for each Calendar Cycle, there are 13 baktuns altogether.

As we just stated, the tzolkin number 260 is the ultimate sacred number to the Mayans. It is the root of their entire mathematical system and the number of days in their Sacred Year. Their calendar consisted always of two dates. They would count the conventional solar years of 365 days along with the 260-day Sacred Years at the same time. Thus, every calendar date was a combination of these two variables. All of this is very well covered in Chatelain and Gilbertís Mayan Prophecies.

This aspect of their culture may be yet another astrological cycle that we do not yet understand, but as we shall see, the deeper synchronicities surrounding the number 260 are mind-blowing. As our first example, Cotterell indicates that the swirling gases at the Sunís equator make one complete rotation every 26 Earth days. Cotterell also demonstrates that ten of these rotations, or 260 days, are pivotal to all higher - level Solar cycles. Therefore, the Mayan Sacred Year of 260 days would be a precise way of keeping track of solar activity. The question we must immediately ask is this: How did an apparently non-technical society know to count this? There are certainly no recorded bits of evidence to suggest that they had anything even remotely resembling the satellite technology that we used to discover this.

When we expand our tzolkin number of 260 to its higher harmonics, we have 260 katuns in the Calendar Cycle. We also have 260 days in the Sacred Year. We will soon see how important this is. The amazing discovery that Chatelain makes is that the katun itself is not just a dead, lifeless fraction of the Great Cycle; it is a working cycle all in its own right. Chatelain indicates in his book that the scientists knew that the length of the katun had to be about 19.75 years, but no one has ever explained what it was actually measuring. They tried such things as dividing the length of the orbits of various planets in years, but nothing seemed to work. Miraculously, and perhaps absurdly, no one ever bothered to check the conjunctions between the planets.

Though no one else had ever considered it, Chatelain realized that by adding a very slight 54 days extra to the standard katun length of 7,200 days, he suddenly, magically arrived at the precise length of time between each conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn. This conjunction was the grease in the gears, the very essence of what made the clock tick. And that is just the beginning. The katun not only worked for Jupiter and Saturn, but when taken as a unit, it plugged into the orbits of many other planets as well.

"For the Mayas the katun of 7,254 days was not only a measure of time but also an astronomical unit to express the synodic periods of revolution of planets, or the count of days needed for each planet to be realigned with the Sun and the Earth. For example, 5 katuns were equal to 313 revolutions of Mercury, 13 katuns were equal to 121 revolutions of Mars, or 27 katuns were equal to 7 returns of Halleyís comet."

So, we can easily see that by simply using the katuns to count, it would be quite possible to plot out all major planetary motions in this manner through relatively simple math.

The typically recognized number system given for the structure of the Mayan Calendar is very simplified and round; 20, 260, 360, 7,200 and 144,000. Each of these refer to a number of days, namely the uinal, tzolkin, tun, katun and baktun. Anyone can read a breakdown of these numbers in Gilbert and Cotterellís book. Since these numbers describe some amazingly complex cycles, we cannot ignore how Divinely simple these numbers really are. For example, 36 and 36 adds to 72, and 72 and 72 add to 144. Plus, 144 is the same as 12 x 12. We obviously have the 12 / 12 connection of the month of December and the year 2012, which appears to be pure synchronicity. We also have the Biblical notion of the idea of 144,000 people being able to Ascend at the time of the Rapture. We cannot ignore the fact that it appears that the Christian authors were tapping into the number mechanics behind this cycle.

In order for Wilcock to have sided with Chatelainís calendar interpretation in the original version of this book, it was necessary to overlook the beauty and simplicity of the accurate numbers used by the Maya. Chatelainís numbers, based on J-S conjunctions, disrupt the elegance of that system with non-round numbers and decimal points. What Wilcock also overlooked was the fact that Cotterellís case for associating these numbers into the sunspot cycle is literally airtight. That leaves us with a most bizarre and interesting proposition - the fact that there is no "gray area" concerning these numbers that govern the celestial mechanics of our Solar System. It becomes very, very obvious that there is indeed an elegant, simplistic, Divine and intelligent design to the way these cycles are working. We will continue looking at this as we go on.

For now, we rest with Chatelainís theories, which have drawn attention to the almost 100 percent connection between the katun and the Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. We can then begin to understand the physical connection to the katunsí use as a counting system. The question that we must then ask of Chatelainís data is what about the big picture itself, the main Calendar Cycle of ~5,200 years? Chatelain distinctly shows that the entire cycle can be perfectly broken down into mathematically precise measurements for many different planetary conjunctions, especially Jupiter and Saturn, as we mentioned. Here is Chatelain to explain.

"...Meanwhile, the Mayas had also discovered [the Main Calendar] cycle of 1,886,040 days that represented exactly 260 conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn, 2,310 of Mars and Jupiter, 2,418 of Earth and Mars, and 3,230 of Earth and Venus.

"This particular cycle was the key to the mystery of the Mayan calendar. It was based on the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn, something nobody had cared to consider... nobody had tested the conjunctions between the planets."

[Until now, they still havenít, other than Cotterellís notice of the cycle that tied in the Mayan Calendar with the length of the Venus year.]

"The conjunction period of Jupiter and Saturn is in reality 7,253.445 days, but the rounded-out Mayan value of 7,254 days is valid because they did not use decimal parts and counted in whole days only. So the Great [Calendar] Cycle of the 260 Mayan conjunctions was 1,886,040 days, or 5,163.8 of our years."

And thus, we have Chatelainís explanation of how he arrived at what he considered to be the true length of the Mayan Calendar, 5,163.8 years, and how it was measured. The measurement occurred through planetary conjunctions, the very foundations of astrology and an unchanging product of celestial mechanics. We also can see from his writings here that a great number of differing planetary conjunctions all fit into the Calendar Cycle like a giant jigsaw puzzle. Notice, though, that this system of planetary calculations fits for HIS number for the Mayan Calendar, at 1,886,040 days of length, and NOT the regular number of 1,872,000 days.

Cotterell does give us many crucial parts of the puzzle, but it was Chatelainís discovery that the Mayan Calendar was directly linked to astrological conjunctions that led to his discovery of the importance of Jupiter and Saturn. In order to fit the Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions that the Maya used as a counting system, Chatelain needed to modify the typically utilized dates. As we go on and look at the numbers, we must ask ourselves if it was possible that the Maya were indeed well aware of both the Chatelain version of the calendar as well as the conventional one. It certainly appears that the two cycles are permanently and inextricably woven into each other. The length of the katun is just far too close to the length of the J-S conjunction to be a coincidence.

From the excerpts just cited previously, we now know that Chatelain is indicating to us that the length of his version of the Mayan Calendar Cycle is 1,886,040 days, and therefore a baktun, which is 1/13th of the whole cycle, would be 145,080 days. The standard, rounder figures take the baktun to be 144,000 days, and we again remember that this also is the number of people said to Ascend in the Bible. If we multiply the traditional baktun of 144,000 by 13, we get 1,872,000, the number of days for the common Mayan Calendar cycle. So between Chatelainís length of 1,886,040 and the common length of 1,872,000, we can see that there is a discrepancy; the astrology-based Mayan Calendar from Chatelain is slightly longer in duration.

Remember now that Cotterell had independently discovered a Sunspot cycle that caused the Sunís magnetic fields to shift, before he ever saw any mathematical information tying this in with the Mayas. His numbers had come strictly from the interpretation of satellite data pertaining to the ebb and flow of sunspots. This principal sunspot cycle that Cotterell calculated is given in Mayan Prophecies as 1,366,040 days. The Maya put great work into monitoring these cycles, as they were directly connected with smaller - scale cataclysms on Earth. Remember that this is a smaller, more frequent cycle that affects when the Sunís own poles shift, not the Great Cycle of ~25,000 years itself. As we previously stated, this solar pole shift cycle has to run itself through seven times in order to add up into the Great Cycle. By the way, these seven cycles fit exactly into the Great Cycle, so there is no debating the connection there.

Again looking back to Cotterell, we see that his own sunspot shift cycle of 1,366,040 days was very closely related to 1,366,560 days, the Mayan "Super Number" in the Dresden Codex. They are exactly 520 days apart from each other, or 2 x 260, the tzolkin number and Sacred Year. This leaves absolutely no question that the Maya were aware of these solar cycles. The additional 520 days act as Cotterellís "shift differential operator," introducing an extra pattern into the equation that allows us to expand these cycles into even larger patterns in the Sunís activity. This tzolkin "shift number" obviously has a wide range of uses in the universe!

Remember that Cotterell calculated his solar pole shift number without ever having seen the Mayan information. When you really dig into Cotterellís information, you discover that the Mayan "Super Number" of 1,366,560 days was based on the usage of the cycles of Venus to calculate solar pole shift. We will not go into detail to explain these points, as it is extremely complicated, relegated to the appendices in the back of Mayan Prophecies. It is an interesting point, though, to see that Venus works so perfectly with the sunspot cycle we are discussing; everything fits together.

So, we add 520 days, or two of Cotterellís solar "shift differentials," and suddenly fact meets fiction: a scientifically derived, totally modern Sunspot cycle harmonizes perfectly with an ancient Mayan number. Science is again baffled by a seemingly insoluble quagmire, where a bunch of "savages" clearly had access to some very highbrow stuff. But, since "they" cannot acknowledge something like this, it is simply brushed aside and ignored. We donít like what we donít understand.

The link between Chatelainís astrology-based number of 1,886,040 days for the Mayan Calendar and Cotterellís 1,366,040 days for the Sunspot shift cycle should be seen right away. The difference is, miraculously, a quite whole number, as both numbers end in 6,040; therefore, when subtracted from each other, the last four digits cancel out to 0,000. This eminent roundness clearly indicates that the matching nature of the numbers is no accident. Their difference is exactly, precisely 520 thousand days. This is undoubtedly one of the most fantastic correlations between the two cycles!

In future chapters of this book, we will go into the work of Global Grid pioneer Bruce Cathie, but for now we will throw in one of his most fundamental ideas on numbers. Cathie indicates that the Ancients would effortlessly add or subtract zeroes to numbers, knowing that the numbers remained harmonically identical underneath. Therefore, 520,000 reduces to 520. Look familiar? This is the exact same number that we just saw above when Cotterell got the Solar "pole shift" to equal the Mayan "super number." Again, he did this by simply adding two tzolkins or Sacred Years of 260 days.

So, all of this synchronicity starts to press on the brain. When Wilcock first discovered it, he literally felt like he just stepped out of his own body. These numbers are too airtight to simply be brushed off as chance. We have to admit that there is a fundamental similarity between Chatelainís modified figures for the Mayan Calendar, based on J-S conjunctions, and Cotterellís number for the solar pole shift. One starts to question how this could possibly be, as Chatelainís book was out on the shelves in 1971, long before Cotterell calculated the Sunspot shift cycle. In addition, Cotterell made these Sunspot calculations with no apparent knowledge of Chatelainís work whatsoever.

Just to recap, the harmonics of the "tzolkin number" of 260 appear to be of pivotal importance in understanding all of our mystically interrelated cycles, including the Great Cycle of ~25,000 years, in many more ways than one. The tzolkin is the anchor of the entire system, from the 26 day rotation of the Sunís equator to the "Sacred Year" of the Maya to the number of katuns in the Mayan Calendar. The tzolkin also links the Sunspot shift cycle to the "Super Number," allowing it to expand into the Great Solar Cycle. Now, we have just shown how it also demonstrates the harmonic link between the J-S conjunctions and the Sunspot shift cycle itself.

If youíre scratching your head at this point, thinking what this all means, it is actually quite simple. Regardless of how much it might confuse, befuddle and stump mainstream researchers of the Mayan Calendar, we have to consider both systems of measurement if we fully want to understand how everything is working. The Jupiter-Saturn conjunctions are a monkey that will not jump off of our back. We must include them in all of this if we wish to make any progress. Wilcockís initial inclination was to go along with Chatelain and simply discard the conventional Mayan Calendar dating, but that wasnít the right move either. It was quite humorous for Wilcock to hear himself crumble his own theory apart while deep in trance. (It actually wasnít very funny, and the resistance was so high that the message had trouble coming through at first. But what matters here is the truth, not an incorrect theory.)

It is interesting to note that "frontier scientist" Richard Hoagland and his team wrote a recent article on hyperdimensional physics on his website that also demonstrates the hyperdimensional importance of the J-S conjunction. In this case, he shows that the power of the J-S conjunction surpasses the power emitted by the standard 11-year Sunspot cycle. This was measured by studying the relative level of radio interference caused by the peaks of the Sunspot cycle, and then comparing that against the level of interference caused by the J-S conjunctions. The J-S conjunctions caused a significantly higher amount of interference than the 11-year Sunspot cycle in this case, and he has reprinted the original articles that prove it. Interestingly, Hoagland also mentions the 25,000-year cycle in the same article, only he has completely missed the real causes behind this cycle, which we are discussing here. In his article on the website, he speculates that the orbit of a distant planet might be the cause this cycle.

We now know from our excerpts from Edgar Cayce, The Ra Material and other sources that this mysterious 25,000-year cycle is not caused by a planet at all; it is a Solar effect. We also know that it does more than simply affect weather, magnetic pole reversals and the ups and down of civilization - it also holographically controls the dimensional frequencies throughout the entire Solar System. We have already started to explore the content of future chapters, where we will show that each planet is a multidimensional body, which assembles into a geometric, crystalline form. These crystalline forms are nothing more than the holographic projections of the One; essentially, conscious energy forms. They are all intertwined into a vast energetic web, and the Sun controls the resonating frequency of this web through the Great Cycle, or the "Breath of the Divine."

To put it another way, just because the Earth is focused in the third dimension now doesnít mean it will necessarily stay there. Our approaching 25,000-year conclusion of this cycle effectively opens a portal through space and time. In order to prepare the entities of any planetary body for these changes, the energy will progressively increase. This is obviously a better way to go, as if the energy continues to increase at a steady rate, you have more time to prepare for the dimensional shift itself. But donít wait too much longer!

As we previously alluded, what we actually see is a "ratchet" form developing, where the available higher-dimensional energy noticeably increases at the peak of each Jupiter-Saturn conjunction. Therefore, even if we stick with the conventional Mayan Calendar date system used by Cotterell, we still need to watch Jupiter and Saturn in order to observe the "ratchets" of this cycle. Later on, we will reprint a Wilcock reading that discusses these energy shifts from the standpoint of 20th century American history.

It is interesting that Edgar Cayce listed "í58 to Ď98" as a crucial "evaluation" period leading up to the planetary changes. Both of these dates are exactly two years prior to when the J-S conjunctions occurred. Based on what we have just unfurled here, we must conclude that this is what the Cayce Readings were referring to. We are hard-pressed to find any other physical observations of the Cycle that could possibly match up any better than this.

But why would the Cayce Readings anticipate each of these conjunctions two years in advance when referring to a "testing period?" We must conclude that just the approach of the J-S conjunction can cause massive changes, even before it actually hits. This applies in astrology as well, where the effects of a major conjunction get stronger and stronger as the conjunction gets tighter and tighter. It really is the exact same principle, albeit on a larger scale.

The length of time between í58 and í98 is forty years, and again we see the Bible symbolism popping out all over the place. The Biblical flood involving Noahís Ark took place for "forty days and forty nights." The Israelite exodus, led by Moses, spent forty years in the desert. Jesusí time of temptation by Satan in the desert was forty days and forty nights as well. All three of these cases would certainly be considered "testing periods." Could there possibly be a connection to the hyperdimensional cycles here yet again, in the same matter as the mention of the 144,000 souls Ascending? (Remember that a baktun is 144,000 days long.)

The conjunction between Jupiter and Saturn actually goes exact on May 28, 2000 at around 8:48 a.m. GMT, 23 days after the 5/5/2000 planetary lineup that many are associating with pole shifts and cataclysms. The period between 1998 and May 2000 might be too close to the end of the Cycle for any further "testing" to apply. Therefore, we might need to wait until 5/28/2000 for the first vortex to open. But as was hinted at in the Ra Material and other sources, we have to consider ALL the planets in the solar system when studying these cycles, NOT just Jupiter and Saturn.

Therefore, the raw intensity of the solar eclipse / Grand Cross configuration on Aug. 11, 1999 at 11:11 a.m. GMT, combined with the closeness of the J-S conjunction and the 11-year Sunspot peak cycle, could trigger the first wave of Ascension. This would be the first time that the transition into the "fourth density" referred to by Ra would occur. The Wilcock Readings indicate that this particular vortex will only open for a fraction of a second at exactly 11:11, and thus a decision must be made immediately. If you choose not to go, you will forget that you even had a choice afterwards.

And now, with the additional information from John Mini regarding the Aug. 13, 1999 ending date for the Aztec Sun Calendar, we can see an even greater weight of evidence surrounding this date. It would appear that if this calendar had been obtained through psychic means, the Aztecs were also tapping into the close of this current cycle in the same fashion as Cayce, Nostradamus and the writers of the Bible. The weight of evidence presses heavier and heavier, demanding that the reader take notice!

Remember the overwhelming evidence that connects the story of Jesus to the modern accounts of extraterrestrial visitation. This includes immaculate conception, the giant light that hovered in the sky over Bethlehem, the appearance of "angels of the Lord," and obviously Jesusí many fantastic abilities. We also have numerous top-secret government officials who have come forward to say that the extraterrestrial visitors informed them that Jesus was one of their own (Good, 1991.) Therefore, to a being that is outside of linear time, the era of Jesus could be the equivalent of one or two of our days in the past. So, when there are writings in the Bible that say, "Two are walking in the fields, and then there is oneÖ" we have to remember that this is not ancient or mythological to them; it is a statement of the fact of exactly what is going to happen to us. Ascension is no laughing matter, and we need to prepare as such.

Getting back to the main point, the May 2000 vortex should be much more "popular" than the 11:11 in 1999. By that point, we will have had five months of y2k collapse, with whatever effects have been created as a result. Needless to say, by the time this vortex opens, many of the prophecies may have hit home in a way that we cannot foresee now. Even the mainstream media is becoming aware of this possibility.

Whenever the transition is actually made, we should see that these new energies will increase the speed of all atoms making up the physical Earth. According to the work of Gordon-Michael Scallion, who also talks of a solar cycle and the 2012 date, this will have an irreversible effect on electricity. No radio or electronic devices will work once this happens. Remember that cars are largely electronic in nature, and thus society as we know it grinds to a halt. No more banks, no more computers, no more television, no more government records, no more lights, no more running water, no more refrigeration, no more distribution of goods, and even no more heat in many cases, as thermostats run on electricity. Even if you had a generator, the energy it was now producing would no longer be compatible with your machinery.

Think about this. We might have more to worry about here than just y2k. When the Earth goes fourth-density, machines stop running. This could certainly be correlated with the inevitable observation of all electronic machinery powering down in the presence of extraterrestrial spacecraft (Good, 1991.) Wilcock just read yet another recent account of this happening last night on the Sightings website (1/22/99.) When the craft goes into close proximity with third-density equipment, its higher-density energy actually causes the electrons flowing through the machines to vibrate at a higher frequency that is incompatible with the machines. As soon as the craft get out of that proximity, everything comes back on. But if the Sun changes the energy everywhere, we then see all the machines ceasing to function as a result of this. Our friends in the Secret Government may already have prepared for this contingency, designing machines that run on higher-frequency electrons.

We also need to remember what we had mentioned earlier about how the bursts and proton storms from the Sun seem to wreak immediate havoc on our electronics systems when they hit us. Our satellites seem to take the worst beating of all, as in the case of the Galaxy 4 satellite pager crash in America. These bursts are but quick samplings of the energy that will soon become the norm. Therefore, since mainstream scientists are not aware of how truly massive this convergence of Solar cycles really is, they cannot know exactly how intensive this radio and electronic interference will be. But the articles being released as of late 1998, more from Europe than America, are already preparing us for the worst.

So, it might well be inevitable that all conventional electronics will be rendered useless. But as we just said, you might not need to stick around for this; you might be Ascending. Let us just reiterate that the apparent nexus of all of these cycles is the Solar Systemís Ďbreath.í This breath would occur in all dimensions, not just three, and the breath itself would be the emanations of consciousness / energy that the Sun is producing. Therefore, as the Sun is about to "exhale," it will radiate an energy field of the higher dimensional frequencies outward, streaming into the holographic Light energy grids of the planets. On the opposite side of the coin, should it "inhale," such as it did at the time of Atlantis, the dimensional frequencies are essentially "sucked back in," and thereby decreased.

This could explain why the Atlanteans, according to Edgar Cayce, had many abilities that we could hardly dream of. This included the manifestation of objects and even lifeforms with thought alone, massive psychic and telepathic abilities, and the levitation of large stones by thought. The Ra Material indeed states that the Atlantean civilization had a very unique perspective, where the roles of time and space were reversed. Where we exist in third-density "spacetime," Ra says that the Atlanteans existed in third-density "timespace," where all these things were made possible. In "timespace," time is not linear as we now think of it, but rather more flexible. This allows a much greater degree of psychic control over the physical environment. A good analogy of timespace is the dream plane, and the ways in which different portions of your life can be worked together into the metaphors. So, Atlantisís unusual abilities obviously had to do with the flip-flopping of the Solar Cycle as we now understand it.

Jesus obviously would be the highest example of a physical being with such abilities still intact in the middle of an "inhale" period. It is clear that he was "preparing the way;" he essentially came to show us a future vision of ourselves. This vision would be of humanity once Ascended, exactly 2,000 years after his arrival. Looking at the big picture, we can see that His arrival was essentially at the close of the most recent cycle. This would explain His quote in John 14, "As I do these things, so shall ye do them, and even greater things..."

Getting back to the point of this chapter, we must remember that no other researcher has ever tied in the Mayan Calendar to planetary conjunctions, except for Chatelain. His rendering of the Calendar to a different dating system does certainly seem tempting. It is important for us to go a bit further in uncovering how he was able to arrive at such a stunning conclusion, as this will reveal further clues. Surely, Chatelainís fastidiousness as a NASA scientist would have required that a great deal of proof be given in support of his theory, and he does certainly seem to have it!


"Ö. I presumed that at the start of the last Great Cycle some remarkable astronomic phenomenon must have occurred. The joint arrival of four planets in the same corner of the sky, the meeting of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune takes place every 4,627 years after each of the planets has finished an exact number of conjunctions and is again lined up with the others. And the last time such a phenomenon took place was the year 1484 of the Christian era."

"Stepping now 4,627 years back I marked the year 3144 BCÖ [This was how Chatelain got his new start date instead of 3114.] [I then] took three more times the same amount of time passed to arrive at the date 18,633 BC. [This was] a date only three years off the year 18,630 BC mentioned as an important date in a sacred Mayan codex preserved in the Vatican. For me that constitutes proof."

Before we go any deeper in analyzing this, we should see that Chatelain is NOT using his Mayan Calendar numbers to calculate these figures. His Calendar length is 5,163.8 years. Here, he is using a completely different cycle - the 4,627-year period of time necessary for Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune to come into perfect conjunction. He naturally assumed that an event this big would be the best way to count out time in this cycle. He does have a good point, as these are all the biggest planets in our Solar System. Obviously, when they come together, the strength of the Solar Cycle only increases. It is no wonder, then, that these numbers would figure in cleanly with the Mayan historical dates.

So, to restate what Chatelain is saying, a sacred record of the Mayans exists which traces their existence back to at least 18,630 BC. Since Edgar Cayceís sources said that the Mayan land was a part of Atlantis known as Poseidia, what we are looking at here is a forgotten relic of Atlantean technology. This would explain how they were able to get such precision; as Cayce indicated, the Atlanteans had direct psychic access to all the information they needed. We can then tie this in with the groundbreaking work done by Graham Hancock and Robert Bauval in back-dating the Gizeh pyramid complex to 12,000 years of age, through astrological alignments and water weathering on the Sphinx. From here, we start to see that in fact, many of the wonders of the Ancient World are actually Atlantean artifacts.

So youíre probably still wondering how the two cycles work together. If the J-S conjunctions are so obviously close to the Mayan katun, why the 54-day discrepancy? Wilcockís own readings finally explained it in a way that makes sense, providing that the Ra Material is accurate. We remember that Ra said that there was once a planet where the Asteroid Belt now resides, often called Maldek. Ra told us that this planet was caused to explode by a war that occurred between its inhabitants some 500,000 years ago. We also know that Thomas Van Flandern, a reputable astrophysicist, is now putting increasingly hard science behind the notion that this was indeed a planet in the recent past that exploded. All comets in the Solar System can be traced back to that point of origin, for example. Since comets are largely water ice, they are the vacuum-frozen chunks of what was once a fertile ocean.

So, even though it might not be "mainstream" yet, the data will continue to increase on this subject. At some future point, this will no longer be considered a matter of fiction, but of simple and tragic human history. The only thing that stops us from being able to accept the truth is the limitations of our own imaginations, and our desire to cling desperately to our "beliefs," which can often be a series of prejudices. We simply cast out the information that we donít like, and everything is "fine." Since we have only just begun to accept the idea of extraterrestrial life, the notion of "planet-hopping" certainly takes some time to get used to. But facts like the gigantic mountain on Mars that is shaped like a human face certainly gives us clues that lead in this direction.

[As a very interesting side note, the morning after Wilcock wrote this, 1/23/99, he had a very detailed and interesting dream that was apparently about Maldek. It was extremely rich and detailed, and borrowed off of the idea of the upcoming new Star Wars movie. In the middle of a sentence that Wilcock spoke to a waitress in a very bizarre "restaurant," the perspective suddenly shifted to outer space, where he saw a gigantic flash of light. That was it!

Then, he was in a movie theater, and everyone was disappointed with the ending. They all had a copy of Gilbert and Cotterellís book Mayan Prophecies. The "movie" just seemed to "cut off" with no prior warning. Wilcock told them not to worry, as there would indeed be a sequel to the movie. Ra says that 50 percent of people on Earth came originally from Maldek. Wilcock had been thinking that the exploded planet portrayed in the movie Star Wars was a sort of "genetic memory" coming through George Lucas, who might have been one of the 50 percent who went through the actual experience. It is very interesting to Wilcock how much the Maldekian "restaurant" resembled the general feeling of the "cantina" scene in Star Wars and Jabba the Huttís hovering cruiser in Return of the Jedi. All the characters were human, but there were definite similarities. Theoretically, anyone should be able to access this information and dream accurately about it. Perhaps Lucas turned it into a film as a result of this ability.]

So, if we know that Maldek did indeed explode, we then need to stretch our imaginations just a bit more. Clearly, the force and impact of an entire large planet exploding must be quite something. Indeed, part of Van Flandernís research concerns the amazing blast impacts that are visible on the neighboring planetary and lunar bodies closest to the Asteroid Belt. Many of them appear to have sustained far more damage on one half than the other half, including Mars, which may well have been one of the exploded planetís moons. With the force of a planet-killing nuclear explosion and all the debris that would be created, we clearly would have quite an incredible problem on our hands. Indeed, something similar might happen to Earth were it to be sufficiently disturbed by a large-scale nuclear war.

Therefore, when Maldek blew, the other planets in the Solar System took quite a beating. In the conventional Newtonian model, they are held in place solely by the Sunís gravity. So, if you have these free-floating bodies suddenly hit with the impact of this tremendous blast, it would be like playing a game of pool on a billiard table. We can easily see that the other planets would get knocked out of their positions. Since Jupiter and Saturn are both beyond the Asteroid Belt, the explosion would blow them further away from the Sun. All it would take would be for one or both of them to be close to Maldek in their orbit pattern, and the extra 54 days could easily be accounted for.

So, what we have to realize here is that at one time, the Solar System functioned in a perfectly Divine and beautiful way, with elegant mathematics. These mathematics allowed the conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn to be exactly 7,200 days in length, thus precisely matching the numbers inherent in the Sunspot Cycle. But, after Maldekís explosion, the planets were knocked out of place, creating a very acceptable 54 days of extra time between each conjunction. But, even though they were knocked slightly out of place, their effects as the driver of the Solar Cycle could not be disputed; they were the two biggest planets in the Solar System.

So, the extraterrestrial forces referred to by Ra must have kept track of both systems of measurement. The "conventional" Mayan Calendar was used to keep perfect track of what was cooking in the Sun, which was not significantly affected by Maldekís explosion. These numbers would always and forever be beautifully simple and elegant, representing the true Divine design of creation. The ítzolkiní grouping of 260 J-S conjunctions were obviously still of extreme importance as well. Thus, even though Jupiter and Saturn got knocked out of alignment, they still ended up arriving in a position that perfectly harmonized with the cycle in the Sun by the "shift number" of 2x260, or 520. This "harmonizing energy" of the gravitational forces in this cycle is the exact same factor that causes the 26,000-year precession of the equinoxes on Earth to be a picture-perfect match of the Great Solar Cycle.

So, what we now have is a system where Jupiter and Saturn still pull their weight, even though they no longer figure in precisely to the conventional Mayan Calendar. We can now see exactly how important the time period of May of 2000 really is. This is not only the last sunspot cycle peak before the Cycle itself ends, it is also the very last time that Jupiter and Saturn will conjoin before the cycle ends. It is for this reason that the period directly surrounding 2000 must be watched, perhaps even more than 2012. We must conclude that it is for this reason that the forces in the Edgar Cayce readings spent all their energy triangulating on 1998-2001 when they spoke of the Solar Cycle and the corresponding pole shift.


In the next chapter, we will investigate the further ramifications of this ancient astrological cycle technology, by uncovering an even vaster cycle that was equally well charted out by the Atlantean / Extraterrestrial contingent, handed down to the Maya and Egyptians. Maurice Chatelain also discovered this cycle as well, and he named it The Nineveh Constant. It is vital for us to explore just how fantastic the harmony of the planetary cycles really can be, and how far it extends. The precision of calculation behind this cycle shows unequivocally that a very high-level influence of some kind was in touch with these ancient cultures, as this 6,000 year old number enables precise calculations of planets all the way out to Pluto.

While it may seem that this rather lengthy document is jumping around somewhat, it is more like weaving an intricate tapestry whose design is dependent upon each thread, each curve, each rich color to define its final texture and impression. As I promised you readers several months ago, and David too, letís move now to one of David Wilcockís "readings" as it directly relates to the subject matter at hand.
