“Belief systems, believe it or not, are functions of time. What you believe defines the time you are living in. Any belief system is held in place by the calendar and sense of time in which it is encoded.” –
“Time and the Technosphere: The Law of Time in Human Affairs.”
Today is Friday, March 30, 2018 according to the Gregorian Calendar of the Catholic Church (our current global civil standard to reckon time), and it corresponds to the liturgical celebration of “Good Friday”, marking the entrance into a 3-day window known as “Easter”, commemorating the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Gregorian Calendar is a program encoded with the belief system of the Christian faith. How is this? We are currently transiting the 18th year of the 3rd millenium… But the third millennium of what? The third millennium since the birth of Christ:
This means that the belief system that has prevailed on Earth for the last 2018 years is correlated with the birth of Christ. Therefore, both see url EASTER (Death + Resurrection) and source site CHRISTMAS (Birth) are the two most important Holy-Days embedded into this calendar. But unlike Christmas (observed every year on December 25th) Easter is NOT observed on a fixed date. This is one of the most controversial, confusing and arbitrary aspects of the Gregorian calendar, as this celebration is supposed to commemorate a historic event, but it varies from year to year.
“Good Friday is a Christian holiday commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. It is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday, though the last term properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.
The date of the holiday on the Gregorian calendar varies from one year to the next, and there is disagreement about its calculation. It is a widely instituted legal holiday around the world, including in most Western countries and 12 U.S. states.”
Today, the 2018 observation of “Good Friday” has been far from good and protagonized by VERY SAD and TRAGIC events in the land where Christ was born…. This is taking place as the Vatican scrambles after pope appears to deny existence of hell…
“At least 16 people were killed and over a thousand people wounded, when Israeli soldiers opened fire on protesters gathering near the border wall. “
As mentioned above, the celebration of Easter during this Gregorian weekend holds an EXTRA-SPECIAL significance due the fact that Resurrection Sunday is synchronizing with April 1st, a “popular” holy-day known as “April Fools’ Day”(observed mostly in the Northern hemisphere)
“Don’t let the joke be on you Sunday. Easter and April Fools’ Day collide Sunday for the first time in 62 years, which means you might want to be careful before biting into a treat.”
This is how a recent USA Today article speaks about this rare synchronization that is already becoming the source of many jokes throughout the internet and expressed in creative ways as popular memes:
But considering that it was during 2017 when the phenomenon now widely known as “FAKE NEWS” took over the internet, and generated a new wave of disinformation and censorship on social media that seems to be signaling the climax of the spell of confusion generated largely by the calendar we use and the unconscious disharmony it engenders…
… this years’ version of April Fools’ Day does not seem to be as fun to celebrate as prior years… specially considering that, precisely this year, the date is also surrounded by RARE and UNIQUE celestial events:
Believe it or not, according to most sources, the origins of April Fools’ Day are connected to the Gregorian Calendar reform of 1582 and the start of the year on January 1st. From Wikipedia’s page on the subject:
“In the Middle Ages, New Year’s Day was celebrated on March 25 in most European towns. In some areas of France, New Year’s was a week-long holiday ending on April 1. Some writers suggest that April Fool’s originated because those who celebrated on January 1 made fun of those who celebrated on other dates. The use of January 1 as New Year’s Day was common in France by the mid-16th century, and this date was adopted officially in 1564 by the Edict of Roussillon.”
“The genesis of our current understanding of April Fool’s Day grew out of the 1582 change in the calendar instituted by Pope Gregory shifting New Year’s Day from April 1 to January 1. News traveled slowly in those days and for various reasons many continued to celebrate New Year’s Day on April First. Those who continued to celebrate New Year’s in April became known as April Fools and was a way to pressure individuals into conforming to a calendar that was designed to focus awareness on physical evidence and promote materialism and commerce. It has been highly successful not only in focusing consciousness on materialism but also in disconnecting us from the magical world including the natural cycles of the Earth and Sky.” – Cayelin Castell
It is then of special relevance to note that BOTH the Julian and the Gregorian reforms were motivated / originated by notorious errors in the calculation of Easter. From Google:
“From October 5–October 14, 1582, time was erased. Not literally, of course; just on the calendar. These ten days were declared non-existent by then-pope Gregory XIII as part of a realignment of the Julian calendar, implemented by Julius Caesar in 46 B.C. In the mid-1570s, it was discovered that the Julian calendar was actually 10 days behind the seasons of the year. For example, Easter began falling later in the spring than it should have and eventually would have drifted into summer.”
This day is also associated with an important event imprinted in profound ways within the collective psyche: It was EXACTLY 19 years ago on 1999-3-31 (4 days before Easter Sunday of 1999-4-4) when the popular movie “The Matrix” was released in theaters…
“The Matrix” ( the first movie of the trilogy) was released right on the eve of April Fools’ Day 1999 and just months before the Y2K event, becoming suddenly a cultural icon of the times, an inseparable part of the Y2K & 2012 memes and probably the most relevant and revealing Sci Fi story of the 20th Century. Unique in its nature for presenting to the masses a renewed scenario between Machine (Artificial) and Human (Natural) Consciousness, through a story full of philosophical and esoteric concepts and metaphors, The Matrix re-introduced the archetype of the modern Prophet/Messiah and catalyzed the re-awakening of perennial dormant questions for a vast planetary audience. In the words of her director:
” What we were trying to achieve with the story overall was a shift, the same kind of shift that happens for Neo, that Neo goes from being in this sort of cocooned and programmed world, to having to participate in the construction of meaning to his life. And we were like, ‘Well, can the audience go through the three movies and experience something similar to what the main character experiences?‘ – Lana Wachowski
What better day to imprint the collective psyche with the idea that our perceived 3rd dimensional reality may be just an illusion generated by an advanced artificial intelligence? Wouldn’t it be a great way to let us know that we have been fooled? Isn’t this a great window of opportunity to follow the “white rabbit” as we were presented with a choice between a RED PILL (reality/organic matrix) and a BLUE PILL (illusion/artificial matrix)?
The impact of this movie in the collective psyche is undeniable and its imprint is still operating as the “red pill”/”blue pill” meme: a popular way to describe those who are awakening to the fact that the world is being run by psychopaths. According to the urban dictionary “‘Red pill‘ has become a popular phrase among cyberculture and signifies a free-thinking attitude, and a waking up from a “normal” life of sloth and ignorance. Redpills prefer the truth, no matter how gritty and painful it may be.”
It is certainly interesting to note that exactly 19 years later from the release of “The Matrix” during Easter week, the Sci-Fi movie now making a record of 53 M Dollars since its release on “Good Friday 2018” is all about an entire virtual universe outside from Earth…
Please also note that this 19-year period corresponds to 1 METONIC Cycle of the Moon, still used today to calculate the celebration of EASTER:
Behind the celebration of Easter on April Fools Day and its relationship to the starting point of the year, there are also deep archetypal aspects worthwhile exploring:
April 1st is also correlated with the ancient festival honoring Venus known as Veneralia. From Wikipedia:
“The Veneralia was an ancient Roman festival celebrated April 1 (the Kalends of Aprilis) in honor of Venus Verticordia (“Venus the changer of hearts”) and Fortuna Virilis (“Manly” or “Virile Fortune”).
The cult of Venus Verticordia was established in 220 BC, just before the beginning of the Second Punic War, in response to advice from a Sibylline oracle, when a series of prodigies was taken to signify divine displeasure at sexual offenses among Romans of every category and class, including several men and three Vestal Virgins. Her statue was dedicated by a young woman, chosen as the most pudica (sexually pure) in Rome by a committee of Roman matrons. At first, the statue was probably housed within the temple to Fortuna Virilis. This cult, older than that to Venus Verticordia but possibly perceived as weak or gone to seed, may have benefited from the moral and religious support of Venus as a relatively new but senior deity; for Ovid, Venus’s acceptance of the epithet and its responsibilities represented the goddess’s own change of heart. In 114 BC Venus Verticordia was given her own temple. She was meant to persuade Romans of both sexes and every class, whether married or unmarried, to cherish the traditional sexual proprieties and morality known to please the gods and benefit the State. During the Veneralia, her cult image was taken from her temple to the men’s baths, where it was undressed and washed in warm water by her female attendants, then garlanded with myrtle. At the Veneralia, women and men asked Venus Verticordia for her help in affairs of the heart, sex, betrothal and marriage. Fortuna Virilis was given cult on the same day.”
Considering the recurrent emergence of Venus as the Morning Star around the end of March and beginning of April, it is plausible to assert that the ancient celebrations of Veneralia were correlated to the movements of the brightest star in the night sky:
In the Tarot deck, “the Fool” card corresponds to number 0 (First /ALPHA) on some decks and to number 22 (Last / OMEGA) on others. The Fool symbolizes then beginning and endings. (In this case the end of the Winter and the start of the Spring):
THE FOOL = The jE(a)STER = The ALPHA + OMEGA
This Resurrection Sunday on April Fools Day also synchronized with KIN 53 (One Reed/Skywalker) on the Sacred Tzolkin Count. KIN 53 is the sign of “The Plummed Serpent”/Quetzalcoatl within the context of Mayan Prophecy. It is an archetypal construct expressed as a serpent biting its own tail symbolizing the endless cycle of Life, Death and Rebirth Present in Nature. This symbol is a universal expression of RESURRECTION:
“52 perfect weeks of 7 days each—364 days in all. Then comes the 365th day, the Day Out of Time. 52 (weeks)+1 = 53, the number of the frequency of Sirian rebirth. That is, 52, the frequency number of one cycle of Sirius, plus day gives birth to the new, hence 53, the frequency of Sirian rebirth. Every Day Out of Time, being the 365th day of the year, is the 52 (weeks) + 1 = 53 frequency of the Sirian rebirth, thus giving a further special significance to this annual Thirteen Moon festival day.
In this case, the 52 +1 = 53, the Day Out of Time, no day of the week or moon at all, also happens to be Kin 53, the galactic signature of the great prophet Quetzalcoatl, Ce Acatl Topiltzin (Our Lord One Reed).”
It is also worth remembering that according to researcher John D. Pratt, the date 1Reed on the Indigenous Tzolkin also coded to the rare Venus rising as Morning Star on Easter Sunday 2001. In his articles A Native American Easter and Venus Resurrects this Easter Sunday Pratt refers to Easter Sunday April 15, 2001, as a very, very special day, given the synchronization of the symbolic resurrection of Christ with Venus rising as Morning Star on 1Reed (KIN 53) in the Sacred Count. Therefore John D. Pratt viewed this April 15, 2001 as very important and rare and used not only the Sacred Calendar Count of the Mayas/Aztecs, but also the Jewish Calendar, the Venus Count 584+1 Days to correlate his findings.
To finish this entry we want to leave you with this excerpt from “Time and the Technosphere: The Law of Time in Human Affairs” by José Arguelles, written in 2001 right at the start of the 3rd millenium published soon after the events of 9-11-2001 . His words are as relevant today as they were 17 years ago and can help us place into historical context the relevance of Easter throughout the timeline of calendar reform during the 20th century:

What is known as history is embedded in this pursuit of “fixing” astronomical time, which has culminated in the dogma of the Gregorian calendar and the microatomic measure of the cesium clock. When did this pursuit begin, why did it come to dominate the human species, and to what effect?
As we have seen, the values, customs, and norms of a nation, culture, or civilization are embedded in the calendar it uses. The Gregorian calendar, the current global civil standard- indeed, the foundation in time of globalization- is the calendar of the Caesars, of the Roman Empire, of the Catholic Church and the Vatican. To change this calendar is to change history itself. Can it be done? The League of Nations attempted this in the 1930s but failed. The United Nations tabled this effort in 1956. Since the United Nations adjourned the matter of calendar reform indefinitely, in 45 years the Earth’s population has more than doubled, that is, it has increased by more than 3.2 billion people, a factor that is still out of control, and that may have much to do with the fact that humanity is actually in a fog about time.
The reasons for wanting to replace the Gregorian calendar are no less valid today. The Gregorian calendar is not a standard of measure. It lacks logic and reason. It numbs and befuddles the mind when trying to make calculations by it. It is shrouded in an arcane and medieval obscurantism. The net effect of the use of this calendar is to perpetuate a fundamental level of mental confusion and ignorance concerning the actual nature of time itself-an ignorance that is hardened into dogma by the unwillingness of habit to consider any other possibility, but rather to accept the entire system as second nature. The argument that it encodes the most accurate and scientific measure of the solar orbit of the Earth is irrelevant in relation to the effect of its irregular measure on the mind and its numbing power as the dogma of a conquering people. Indeed, the solar measure of 365.241299 days per year has nothing intrinsically to do with “30 days hath September. . . ,” and vice versa. In fact, the measure of the Earth’s orbit is one matter; the purpose of calendars and time reckoning as factors of synchronization is a wholly other matter. But then, since the very nature of a culture or a civilization is determined by the calendar it keeps, the use of a deformed standard can only inhibit and skew even the questions one asks about time.
The failure of calendar reform by 1961, the year of the Vatican II Council, only promoted an increasingly complacent acceptance, however cleverly disguised, of a millennial dogma, the Gregorian calendar. In the conclusion to the “last word” on the subject, Calendar: Humanity’s Epic Struggle to Determine a True and Accurate Year, David Duncan summarizes, “We take in stride a calendar [the Gregorian] that is flawed but endures, largely because it works just fine for most of us, and it is what we are used to.”9 It is not at all objective to accept something because we are used to it. This attitude is anything but scientific. Rather, it is the smug basis of nothing more than a self-fulfilling dogma-and yet the civilization that bases itself on this aberrant timing measure prides itself as being the most scientific in all history!
THE CONFUSION OF IRREGULAR TIME
Due to this flawed time sensibility, it may be concluded that humankind today is little capable of moral reason or logic, which itself is a result of, or at least strongly reinforced by, habituation to a timing standard that is irrational and illogical. Anytime we overlook or dismiss a fault due to habit, or simply because we are accustomed to the use, say, of an instrument, even if that instrument is demonstrated to be flawed and irregular, is evidence of a moral laziness that will eventually contaminate the entire consciousness that accepts and accommodates itself to the flaw. The exercise of truth is a moral prerogative. The fact of the matter is that the Gregorian calendar is a hodgepodge of flaws and accretions, rationalized into a systematic formulization that has no basis in reality. The celebration of Easter is a case in point.
Easter is the celebration of the day Christ was resurrected from the dead. It may be logically assumed that this occurred on one and only one particular day, just as the celebration of his birth occurs on Christmas Day (although, similarly, no one really knows that this was the actual date of his birth). By the time the Christian religion had become an established force within the Roman Empire, however, no one knew precisely on what day the Resurrection had taken place. The Council of Nicea, convened by Constantine in A.D.325, called for a debate on the matter in which various theories were presented. The debate was concluded with the victory of one conjectural system over the other. The winning system stated that Easter would be celebrated on the first Sunday after the first full moon after the spring equinox, except when the full moon was on a Sunday, in which case it would be celebrated on the following Sunday, and this was so that it would not be celebrated on the same day as Jewish Passover.

Over the centuries this conjectural theory regarding the date of Christ’s resurrection was buttressed with a system of elaborate calculations for predicting when Easter would occur. These calculations were all made with regard to establishing an alignment of the synodic lunar cycle of 29.5306 days (which resulted in a lunar year of 354.3672 days) and the solar year of 365.241299 days! Being fortified with such elaborate mathematical calculations did not lessen the fact that the system was originally -and still is- a mere speculation of a highly clever but relative nature. Throughly embedded in the Julian-Gregorian calendar, the system of determining Easter is inseparable from the Gregorian calendar itself, and is one of the chief reasons for the resistance to its reform, as witnessed by a reading of the calendar reform arguments of the 1930s. The entire system of this calendar, inherited without question from the Caesars of the Roman empire, is actually nothing more than a form of self-perpetuation of a priestly hierarchy that includes in its support a host of bankers, industrialists, and scientists and the elaborate social system that is under their control-the technosphere of global civilization itself. Take away the calendar and the entire structure loses its foundation.
“If the Julian/Gregorian calendar was to be offered as a new device for measuring time, we, with our present knowledge and state of living, would reject it as some- thing utterly impracticable, lacking in harmony and order, unbalanced and irregular, too clumsy a calendar to make calculations by, while the various sections are not comparable.”10
A science or any scientist that unquestioningly follows the Gregorian calendar is, in reality, not worthy of the name. What is science? A concern for logic and precision of measure, we might answer, as well as standards of measure that utilize uniform units of measure in accord with what is being measured. Yes, the year is calculated as being 365.241299 days in length, but if the annual standard of measure that is used is irregular and unscientific, then it avails nothing, and indeed deforms the mind leading it down byways that may only end in self-destruction. Thus the pursuit of a true and accurate year in itself may be an illusory pursuit, blinding us to the actual nature of time, and leading us away from a genuine understanding of ourselves and our role and purpose on this Earth.
To change and replace the calendar with the thirteen moon standard is to return us to our original purpose, leading us back to pathways of harmony and natural health. According to the Law of Time, the damage already inflicted in the time humanity last hesitated and lost the chance to alter its timing frequency, forty years ago, has been incalculable. The final opportunity to change the calendar and the timing frequency is now upon us. Because of this we must be very clear and unshakable in our understanding and determination to expose and eliminate the current civil calendar for once and for all. […]
In reviewing the quirks and twists of history that constitute the Gregorian calendar, we must ask: Why do we continue to use such an instrument, and what are its effects? Is a calendar something more than a tool for scheduling the payment of debts (calends),or is it an instrument of synchronization? The harmony or disharmony of time is a profound matter rooted in the instrument of time reckoning that we use. There can be little question that we live more in a time of chaos than of harmony. We may also say in regard to the effect of standards of measure on the mind, that the chaos of the time is embedded in the calendar we use. If we are to leave this time of chaos and enter a time of harmony, then we must exchange the instrument in which the chaos is embedded for an instrument that is the very model of harmony: the 13 Moon/28-Day count. This is the choice humankind must now make.
The issue of the nature of time, or of the times in which we are living, cannot be separated from the issue of the calendar. The very nature of the calendar that the world follows has stunted the mind and warped the body’s innate timing sensibility, reducing the understanding of time to being merely a matter of chronology. “Chronology is a register or reckoning of successive years, a time scale. It may also be described as a system of registering time massively.”12 Virtually all time reckoning has proceeded from astronomical indicators, the major exception being the Maya, who actuated from a solely mathematical outlook. Yet with this mathematical outlook the Maya devised a chronological method that has never been surpassed, a fact attested to by many, including the architects of the Kitt Peak Observatory in Tucson, Arizona, where a mosaic mural depicting the civilization of the Maya asserts the superiority of their calendar over that of the Europeans.
It is significant that the earlier calendar reform movement, while occasionally acknowledging the brilliance of the Maya, made no use of the Mayan knowledge. But this was because the time sensibility was restricted to thinking of time solely in terms of chronology, or at best as a schedule for keeping good accounts, with little comprehension at all of the synchronic nature or order of time. And since the system of chronology was synonymous with the system of control embedded in the Gregorian calendar system, the earlier reform movement failed altogether to make any impact on the Vatican, much less on the global power structure itself.
All the thought, action, and good intention put into the years of calendar reform notwithstanding, the Gregorian calendar prevailed, and, tragically, not one of the proposals or recommendations was ever even considered for adoption by the papal authorities who maintain control over the calendar. In the 1930s, the propaganda of the Church was aimed at limiting any possibility of reform, for it would not give up the succession of the seven-day week. In any perpetual calendar, such as the Thirteen Moon/28-Day calendar, the observance of the Day Out of Time is necessary for maintaining the harmony of the fifty-two weeks that complete themselves in 364 days. The continuous succession of the week does not stand in a constant relation with the other elements of the calendar and is one of the main causes of confusion in the Gregorian calendar. Arguing that such a break as a Day Out of Time, no day of the week at all, would plunge the world more deeply into chaos, barbarism, and war, the Vatican effectively blocked all effort at reform. The completion of the century of total war, capped by the Inevitable Event (9-11-2001), roundly refutes this point. It may just as easily be argued that because we did not change the calendar, we are now plunged into the final barbarism and unholy war.
When the Vatican II Council in 1961 affirmed in its backward and highly restrictive language that it was not opposed to reform, so long as such reform did not disrupt the seven-day week and respected the tradition of Easter as a “movable feast,” the door to reform slammed shut. By this time all the early reformists had literally died out and the question of calendar reform appeared to have become one of the buried issues of history.
What the priests of the Catholic Church thought they had buried through an auto-da-fe in Izamal, Yucatan, 1562, and overcome through the imposition of the Julian-Gregorian calendar over the conquered Maya, returned with the precision of prophetic timing in 1987. The publication of The Mayan Factor not only opened the door to a new look at the Maya, but also to an understanding of time that was anything but chronological. A new dimension of time appeared-radial, fractal time, the synchronic order. And behind the reassessment of the nature of time was the provocative call of Mayan prophecy-the end of the thirteen baktun Long Count, 2012.
The Law of Time defines the human problem as being one of radical and destructive dissynchronization from natural time, resolvable only by a return to natural time through the perfect and perpetual harmony of the Thirteen Moon calendar. With the analysis of the Law of Time, there is an even greater urgency and a more profound certainty. Reform is not only insufficient but also impossible. If the calendar is not changed within the next decade, it will be the end of civilization as we know it. There is a genuine and legitimate need to bring the issue of calendar reform into the public eye once again.
Yes, to change the calendar involves a frequency shift. The collapse of the technosphere will dispose the human mind to rethink its options. It may even reorient the human mind to a consideration of the biosphere as being the greater vehicle in which we, as humans, are being carried. Such a massive change in attitude, a mind shift and a paradigm shift, may arouse in the human breast a spiritual reawakening as well. […]”
