Sitting Owl’s Notes on ‘The Mayan Factor 
– Path Beyond Technology’

By: Jose’ Arguelles




Sitting Owl’s Editorial

Firstly I would like to thank Rowan Cooke (now deceased) for the lend of his very precious book, ‘The Mayan Factor – Path Beyond Technology’ by: Jose’ Arguelles.

I have included some of my notes, particularly those that can be used for divination and to find out the energies that were an influence at the time of your birth. Similar to Birth totems or Star Signs. There are still more notes to come that explain the overlapping cycles found in the Mayan Tzolkin Calendar Matrix (Harmonic Module), including the Great Cycle that began 3113 BC and ends 2012 AD.

Report on the 6th Australian Spiritual Unity of the Tribes Gathering at Swan Hill.
(the 30th World Wide)

Well, what a gathering, I believe the attendance peaked at 1200. I would firstly like to thank Marilyne and Doug Nicholls and the Watti Watti People for their hospitality on their land by the Murray River. I would also like to thank all the elders, visitors from around the globe, and the Spiritual Unity Committee members and warriors for yet another successful gathering.

My first impression was that the Sacred Fire was too far away from the camping area, however the reasons gradually became apparent. It was located so as not to be disturbed by other, non-gathering, campers, and was on very sacred ground.

Without saying too much about my own personal experience at the gathering, I will say that many people learnt some valuable lessons, in particular, to be grounded and not to go flying off with the fairies to the point of getting lost in the bush all night. Other lessons included keeping a cool and respectful head, without allowing emotions to over-ride our knowledge and wisdom, even in the face of a near disaster. And yes the lessons did not exclude me. I was again tested regarding ego, this time on the other end of the scale, to see if rejection and lack of recognition would send me into a depression, giving up my work as a shaman thinking I was fooling myself. I also learnt to take my time and not be in such a hurry to do what needs to be done, sometimes spirit is in go slow mode, but not much lately as there has been a real quickening happening.

The talks by the elders and visitors were all very wise and humble, and Maynard has a beautiful sense of humour. But the one speech that stood out in my mind was the talk that Ben (Eagle Flies First) gave about the Lakota language. He said that their language has no word for “dead”, and that to them everything is alive. Nor is there any word for “evil”, as the Great Spirit has created everything exactly as it needs to be, and to criticise anything in this created universe is to criticise its Creator. He also said that their language has no word for “I”, “me”, or “mine”, as everyone and everything is addressed in relationship to all other things. Ben said that if we were able to take these words out of our vocabulary, a lot of our social problems would disappear. And I must agree with that.

Gill, the truly humble Apache Warrior, has honoured me by giving me some information on the building of, and the representations of the Sweat Lodge or “Inipi Ceremony”. This does not include everything, so please see, among other things, my article ‘Circles, Cycles, Spirals and Spheres’ in Volume 1 Number 4 of ‘Earth People’. Gill also gave me a copy of ‘Sweat Lodge Etiquette’ by Carmeen. Keep your eyes out in future issues of ‘Earth People’ for this information.

I must also say a word about Ma Anand Suraj and the Mother Drum that has been travelling the world since it was built in Alaska during the latter part of 1999. I spoke of this in the first issue of ‘Earth People’. Suraj’s opening ceremony, for me if not for others, began with a very powerful speech that said a lot of things I’ve been talking about (I only wish I could find words like that in front of a huge crowd, but still, I am happy working one on one). The ceremony went for quite a while and I for one got a bit cold as the temperature drops fast after the sun goes down. But to see the ocean of people letting go on that drum, sending their voice out loud and clear really warms one’s heart.

The progress and travels of the drum can be observed by logging on to The Whirling Rainbow Center web site, at unless this information has changed since 1999.

For me, most of my work began after the closing ceremony, trying to help people come back down to earth, and some house blessings or cleansings on the way home. I even heard that a number of people came down with gastro type illnesses after arriving back home. The soul certainly knows what it wants and lets us know what it doesn’t want – to be a cog in the materialistic society’s machine.

When I arrived home, still being tested, I found that someone had stolen my sweat lodge stone fork and some of the covers leaving the rest of the blankets exposed to the elements. My first (paranoid, yes I’m still trying to recover from society’s guilt trip) reaction was to think that maybe I have been doing something wrong, and that maybe this was a message from Spirit for me to stop running Sweat Lodges. But now I realise that the message was to build a new lodge down near the creek, a much better location even if it means I can’t drive right to it, at least no-one else can.
There is talk of having more gatherings more often with smaller numbers if need be. I am hoping they will occur at “Earth” times rather than “Holiday” times. But the big gatherings are still necessary for people to see what the answer is – UNITY, INTERDEPENDANCE and RESPECT.

(Written in 1994-95 for Deakin, Assignment 1, AST – 104, ‘Comparative Studies’.)

When looking at the way nature is connected to the human environment, David Turnbull in 'Maps are Territories' examines the “theory as map” metaphor. To discuss this idea, we must first look at what a map is, and what a theory is. According to Turnbull, scientists, philosophers, and cartographers are unsure of exactly what a map or a theory is.

The Oxford Dictionary describes the verb to “map” as to “plan arrangement of”. Therefore my view, that a map is a theory and a theory is a map, can be seen from my definition of both. Firstly a map is a device to assist one in finding their way around space, and secondly, a theory is a device to assist one in finding their way around knowledge. Therefore I agree that: "Maps are often useful ways of illuminating our understanding of scientific theories." 1

To examine this connection between maps and theories I will look at: The way different cultures see their world; the devices they use to convey this knowledge; and the purpose and usefulness of these devices. To draw to a conclusion I will discuss some theories that are very close to my heart.

There are two aspects that are fundamental to all experiences of life. Firstly everything in our physical world happens mainly within space, but also within time. Secondly every living thing must have some form of consciousness – some idea of cause and effect. For example, a vine growing around a tree must have some idea of where to send a shoot so as to grasp the host tree. After that, the vine then opens it's leaves so as to capture the maximum amount of sunlight. Therefore, the vine must have some way of knowing where both the tree and the sun is; and most importantly, it must know that death or weakness would result if it were not to grasp the undiscovered part of the tree and direct it's leaves toward the sun. Although this is obviously instinctual behaviour, it indicates that even plants must have some sort of mental image of the space around it, a mental map as it were.

Joseph Campbell, in the video 'The Power of Myth', has shown me that all the myths of all the religions are like maps that can assist us to find our way through every stage of human life, from birth to death and even rebirth. He says that when we can understand the transcendent messages of these myths, they can guide us on our own individual journey of life. And I can assure everyone that this understanding has made a great improvement in the enjoyment and understanding of my own life, particularly through the transition of my transformation or “Mid-life-crisis”2

A good starting point for seeing the diversity and origin of maps, is to look at the primitive culture of the Australian Aborigines. I will refer to these people as Yolngu, as according to some authorities that is the term they use to refer to themselves.

For the Yolngu, the only forms of information they need to firstly learn from their elders, and then memorise what is learnt, are the “Dreamtime” stories. These stories are of the creator beings (often in animal form), and are referred to as the Dreamtime Ancestors or just Ancestors. During the “Dreaming” (time of creation), these ancestors socialised and fought with each other, leaving their marks or “footprints” on the land and thus created the landscape. For the Yolngu, “Djalkiri” (Dreaming) or the “Footprints of the Ancestors” is the major structure to their life. Therefore the Dreamtime stories not only contain all the moral codes, spiritual beliefs, and social obligations, but also a type of map in narrative form.

From the study guide 'Maps are Territories', David Turnbull explains that: "A person's or a Clan’s Djalkiri could be called there “songline”... This is the country “owned” by that person or group." These songlines criss-cross the entire continent combining to form the network of Dreamtime stories, thereby encouraging passive socialisation. To sum up, from page 30. Turnbull says:
"Thus the landscape, knowledge, story, song, graphic representation, and social relations all mutually interact, forming one cohesive knowledge network." 3

Robert Lawlor in his book 'Voices of the First Day' explains that: 
"When Westerners generalise about the physical environment, we categorise it with terms defining country, state, or regions. Aborigines do not apply such abstract terms to their environment but refer only to specific land formations." 
There are many ways that the Yolngu refer to a single landmark. This can be in the form of: a line of a song; a part of a Dreamtime story; a fragment of dance; sand or bark painting (referred to by Yolngu as “dhularj “); or a tale of a fire or death that occurred in that vicinity. The Yolngu do not create names or describe boundaries such as nations, religions, social classes, and political parties. 
"These function as binding configurations in which humans confine and limit themselves and, at worst, destroy one another." 4

From the previously mentioned study guide David Turnbull sums up my thoughts in one sentence: "In a profound sense the Yolngu “theory of land” has the landscape as a map of itself.” However it does not need to be drawn with any scale of one to one, and is therefore very useful to Aboriginal people who have learnt their Dreamtime myths, conventions, and forms of life (existing scheme of things or universal laws).

In contrast to the Aboriginal multi-layered social maps, Western Culture's idea of a map is one of a physical representation of the landscape. However if a map is to represent every aspect of the landscape or territory, it will be identical to that territory, with a scale of one to one, and would therefore be useless as a map.

Lines are the most commonly seen representation on maps. They usually represent some type of boundary between land and water or track and virgin land. These lines and other conventional graphic devices seen on maps are referred to as “symbolic representations”, and other devices which attempt to represent landscape more pictorially are referred to as “iconic representations”.

Because a map cannot contain all the information that is “out there”, the map makers must select what they consider to be important for the intended purpose of the map. These map makers therefore not only decide what is and what is not to be represented on the map, but also how they will represent that information. Thus establishing the conventions of symbolic and iconic representations. A classical convention for western maps is that North is at the top of the map. This was a result of the global rise and economic dominance of Northern Europe.

The nature of these conventions means that they must be learnt for the map to have any meaning to anyone other than the map maker. Therefore the more complex the conventions, the less number of people can use and understand the map. From page 9 of 'Maps are Territories', Turnbull says:
"In this regard, maps prove once again an apt metaphor for scientific discourse. Scientific representations of the phenomenal world are, like maps, laden with conventions, which are kept as transparent, as inconspicuous, as possible."

Karl Popper in 'Unended Quest' has argued the map metaphor by seeing maps as descriptive and theories as argumentative. 5. Although there is some truth in this, it is important to realise that because of the narrowing or qualifying effect of language, then basically descriptions are also arguments. This is particularly obvious when describing landscape, because maps invariably contain less information than the territory it represents. In saying this I must admit that maps, under special circumstances, can show new knowledge that can't be seen by just describing the territory. The best example of this is Bullard's computer reconstruction of the continents. This shows that according to Wagener's “theory of continental drift”, the joining of the continents (particularly South Africa and South America) is quite valid. (see fig. 8-1 'Maps are Territories' Page 48.)

Although my main concentration so far has been directed to the use of maps as devices to assist us to find our way around the physical space around us, the map metaphor becomes clearer when discussing the energies around us or scientific theories. I would now like to discuss a theory that I had after reading two particular books. My theory was hammered home to me after seeing the previously mentioned video of Joseph Campbell’s 'Power Of Myth'.

The first book, by Fred Alan Wolf entitled 'The Eagles Quest – A Physicist's Search For Truth In the Heart of the Shamanic World'; showed me that Shamans use the universal energies, which have an order that is “mappable”. The most common of these “maps” is the World Tree, which is divided into the three levels of consciousness or spirit, being: our Higher Consciousness (Universal Unconscious), ABOVE, HEART or soul, and heaven; our Normal Wakeful Consciousness, WITHIN, MIND, and Man; and our Subconscious habits and reactions (Personal Unconscious or Body-Conscious), BELOW, DESIRES, and Hell or Earth. I called this map, the 'Order of Life and Energy' (See Fig. 1 on page 7) 6

The second book was the previously mentioned 'Voices Of The First Day'. In this book Robert Lawlor made clear the fourfold division of the natural world, which I have called the 'Fourfold Of Natural Symmetry' (see Fig. 2 on page 7). Lawlor says:
"The four races - Black, White, Yellow, and Red - correspond to the fourfold archetypal division of creation found in many indigenous cultures... It may seem to be a coincidence that modern astronomers have designated the four major phases in the life cycles of stars as Black Holes, Red Giants, White Dwarfs, and Yellow Suns." 

The Native American Indians relate everything in all of creation, including emotions and the stages of:- a man’s life, a year, a day etc., to these four colours. But the most important of these four divisions of colour is their associations to the four directions, spirits, or winds of: The North, The South, The East, and The West. 7

My theory, based on these theoretical maps, was that when the threefold order of life and energy combines with the fourfold order of natural symmetry, then this creates the 'Seven Chakras' (see Fig. 3 on page 8), which is a type of mythological map used by the Hindu Indians to understand energies effecting all humans.

Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was based on the mapping of Man's biological change from primates about seventy million years ago. I found that Jeremy Griffith has used this map of evolution to illuminate has theory on the “Human Condition” in his two books: 'Free: The End Of The Human Condition' (1988); and 'Beyond The Human Condition' (1991).

Griffith sees that: 
"Just as a child must grow through infancy, childhood, adolescence, and only then reach adulthood, so our species has had to develop through these stages."

Griffith sees that humanity is now at it's final stage of adolescence, and I feel that we must now look to our inner emotional, psychological, and spiritual needs from within ourselves, as opposed to our outer physical needs, wants and desires, which have had far too much emphasis for far too long. When we strike a balance in these areas, we will successfully go through humanities “Mid-Life Crisis” (Transition from the animal instincts of adolescence to the compassion of adulthood). 8

I believe I have shown here that every living thing has some idea of time and space; and also has some idea of cause and effect, whether it be instinctual or intellectual.

Humans, being less instinctual and more intellectual, can therefore be aware of more of the forms of life and space around them. This allows us humans to have greater diversity and knowledge of the world around us than any other life form. The more we describe our world around us with detail and complexity, the less other life forms can live harmoniously with us, as they become ‘things’ to be described, “its” instead of sacred “thous”. Therefore western man's complexity has allowed him to dominate and overpower his world around him. Instead of empowering his world, he destroys it.

Now that we have mapped the entire world around us, and mapped our knowledge of cause and effect (via scientific theories), we must now use these maps to show us where and how we can fit, harmoniously with all forms of life, in this vast universe and planet.

Maps, as a means of arranging information of the world around us, can discard or highlight any particular information that is or is not relevant for any particular purpose. So if that purpose is to highlight a particular scientific fact, then in this sense "Maps are often useful ways of illuminating our understanding of scientific theories."

The TZOLKIN represents the bare bones essentials of the radiant energy of the universe or Light Code which is complementary to the Genetic Code, which is represented by the I Ching. While the I Ching is a Genetic Constant, the Tzolkin is the Galactic Constant with its thirteen numbers, twenty symbols and four directional positions. While the combinations of the thirteen numbers and twenty positions or symbols produce the 260 units comprising the entire matrix, the 52 (13 X 4) directional position possibilities are reflected in the pattern unifying the matrix. This is the 52 positions with the black background.

If you look at this pattern you will see that it comprises 26 units on the right side of the central, seventh or Mystic column, and 26 units on the left side of that column, for a total of 52 units. This pattern is “the primary resonant structure common to all processes and systems. It is the visible form of the cosmic code.” This pattern is called “The Loom of Maya”. The seventh, Mystic column is the only one devoid of this pattern because it is the “Unmirrored”, which mirrors all. But there will be more on this Loom of Maya later.

Because the Harmonic Module above is a Hologram, it can also be overlayed with many different aspects. For example the 260 Kin or days can be divided into FOUR seasons of 65 days. This will indicate the Directional Guardians for the Beam (Roadway) Lenses, which are as follows:
CHICCHAN for the East (LIKIN)
OC for the North (XAMAN)
MEN for the West (CHIKIN)
AHAU for the South (NOHOL)
