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 ?
