  • Playing cards, calendars, and the Mayens.

    An interesting show was on the Discovery channel on the ancient Mayens. It has been found that these people had a calendar that was a thousand times more accurate than anything we use today.

    They also had three different calendars. One had the standard 365 days but others had up to 20 months. They had a system where all calendars were put on wheels that rotated within and in conjunction with other calendars with days lining up in a sequence.

    This sequence took exactly 52 years to go back to the beginning and start the whole process over again. There are four main divisions of time called Katuns, three have already come to pass and the last will come in the year 2012. Supposedly that is the end of time.

    Yet we have 4 suits of cards. There are 52 cards in a deck. But also there are 4 seasons in a year. If you pay rent by the week we have 13 monthly payments, there are 13 cards in each suit. If you count all the icons of diamonds, or spades, or clubs, or hearts you will find there are 365 in each suit.

    There is a whole huge list of these parallels between playing cards and other earthly things.

    Do you know of others ?

      There is something called sacred geometry. It ma be mayan in origin. But there are many un explained mathematical anomolies. As far back as Greek Mystery schools 2500 years ago, we as a species were taught that there are five perfect 3-dimensional forms -The tetrahedron, hexahedron, octahedron, dodecahedron, and icosahedron. Collectively these are known as The Platonic Solids -- and are the foundation of everything in the physical world. Modern scholars ridiculed this idea until the 1980's, when Professor Robert Moon at the University of Chicago demonstrated that the entire Periodic Table of Elements -- literally everything in the physical world -- is based on these same five forms! In fact, throughout modern Physics, Chemistry, and Biology, the sacred geometric patterns of creation are being rediscovered, but often without the greater context of spiritual understanding which protects against their misuse. One of our intentions with lightSource, is to provide a bridge to an intuitive spiritual understanding that is in alignment with the appropriate use of this knowledge.

        Even more interesting stuff on numbers an their relation to us in both nature and the unseen world


        Foundations of the Fibonacci Series

        0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987, 1597, . . .

        It's just a simple series of numbers discovered by Leonardo Fibonacci that defines the ratio of the Golden Section and Divine Proportion.

        But, the Fibonacci number (1.61804...), often called phi or Ø, was described by Johannes Kepler (1571-1630) as one of the "two great treasures of geometry." (The other is the Theorem of Pythagoras.)

        The ratio of each successive pair of numbers in the series quickly converges on 1.61804. . . , as 5 divided by 3 is 1.666..., and 8 divided by 5 is 1.60.

        But that is just the beginning of its mathematical curiosities and mysteries.

          Defining the distance an object travels from another object is somewhat easy. Yet what about the distance from an object TO the object it is to collide with? Regardless how close one object gets to another, that number can always be divided in half. But where does that number become so small that it can no longer be divided and contact is made ? This happens all the time a gazillion times a day.

            I heart N.Y.
            I spade my dog.
            I club my harp seal.

              By the complex math of todays schollars we have proven there are edges to our universe. We have determined to length, width and depth of it. We know the volume of it.

              Yet outside those limits is the voit that goes on forever. Could there not be other universes out there? IN fact could there also be not only a infinate number of other universes within tha void but could there also be other dimensions floating around that have entire multiple alter dimentional universes in there?

              Or are we only part of one of those ourselves?

                Nova on PBS just showed a three part series on String Theory. It describes a universe of eleven dimentions, and multible alternate universes. They also describe "The Big Bang" as two of these universes colliding.

                  I would have to say there is no such thing as "collision"; truly.

                  It seems that since two objects cannot occupy the same space then our idea of what is a "collision" needs some further examination.

                  A collision occurs when there is a transfer of energy between two objects whether in the form of kinetic energy (e.g. force), electrical (static shock) or heat (infra-red wavelengths). The two objects never really come into direct contact with each other, not on the sub-atomic level anyway.

                  By far the worst type of collision I can think of is colliding ideologies or differences of opinion. People simply refuse to let go of things and therefore become entangled with each other, sometime inseperably!

                  Okay, good night for now. There's a storm brewing over southeastern Virginia and its a worknight.

                  Cheers!

                    YOUR POST MADE ME THINK OF AN OLD SONG DONE BY TEX RITTER
                    THE DECK OF CARDS
                    During the North African campaign, a bunch of soldier boys had been on a long hike and they arrived in a little town called Casino.

                    The next morning being Sunday, several of the boys went to Church.

                    A sergeant commanded the boys in Church and after the Chaplain had read the prayer, the text was taken up next. Those of the boys who had a prayer book took them out, but this one boy had only a deck of cards, and so he spread them out.

                    The Sergeant saw the cards and said, "Soldier, put away those cards."

                    After the services was over, the soldier was taken prisoner and brought before the Provost Marshall.

                    The Marshall said, "Sergeant, why have you brought this man here?"
                    "For playing cards in church, Sir."
                    "And what have you to say for yourself, son?"
                    "Much, Sir," replied the soldier.

                    The Marshall said, "I hope so, for if not I shall punish you more than any man was ever punished."

                    The soldier said, "Sir, I have been on the march for about six days. I have neither a Bible nor a prayer book, but I hope to satisfy you, Sir, with the purity of my intentions." And with that, the boy started his story:

                    "You see Sir, when I look at the Ace, it reminds me that there is but one God; and the Deuce reminds me that the Bible is divided into two parts, the Old and the New Testaments.

                    When I see the Trey, I think of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; and when I see the Four, I think of the four Evangelists who preached the Gospel; there was Matthew, Mark, Luke and John; and when I see the Five, it reminds me of the five wise virgins who trimmed their lamps; there were ten of them: five were wise and were saved, five were foolish and were shut out.

                    When I see the Six, it reminds me that in six days, God made this great heaven and earth.
                    When I see the Seven, it reminds me that on the seventh day, God rested from His great work; and when I see the Eight, I think of the eight righteous persons God saved when He destroyed this earth; there was Noah, his wife, their sons and their wives; and when I see the Nine, I think of the lepers our Savior cleansed, and nine out of the ten didn't even thank Him.

                    When I see the Ten, I think of the Ten Commandments God handed down to Moses on a table of stone. When I see the King, it reminds me that there is but one King of Heaven, God Almighty; and when I see the Queen, I think of the Blessed Virgin Mary, who is Queen of Heaven; and the Jack or Knave is the Devil.

                    When I count the number of spots on a deck of cards, I find 365, the number of days in a year.

                    There are 52 cards, the number of weeks in a year.
                    There are 4 suits, the number of weeks in a month.
                    There are 12 picture cards, the number of months in a year.
                    There are 13 tricks, the number of weeks in a quarter.

                    So you see, Sir, my pack of cards serves me as a Bible, an Almanac and a Prayer Book."

                    "And friends, the story is true. I know, I was that soldier."
