10-Men: Vision Manifested (21 September 2017)

Born 10-Men: Gillian Anderson, Brittany Murphy, Spike Lee, John Adams (2nd US president), Laurence Olivier, Stephen Graham

Vision Manifested

“The world grows more enlightened. Knowledge is more equally diffused.” – John Adams (10-Men), Discourses on Davila (1790)

The supreme magician 9-Ix evolves and obtains a real vision of what’s to come during the unfolding winter, and whatever’s beyond. When true change is followed through (and even surrendered to completely) from conception to birth, the reward is a crystal clear picture of reality.

Keep in mind that Cimi stands for luck, and Men stands for plenty (material or otherwise) – good combination, huh? So luck, and physical abundance, are fused with a clear vision to produce a unique and powerful day.

Revisiting the above quote by John Adams – it is evident that plenty is available to me wherever I turn, especially plenty of information. Enlightenment might not be as evidently abundant as data, but this is because data is not Knowledge.

Knowledge is human/organic from beginning to end. This is why we have plenty of artificial intelligence (AI) and absolutely no artificial knowledge/wisdom.

Even if I become Dr. Frankenstein and animate some organic tissue I’ll call Eye-Gore I will not be able to engineer and fashion him with a Spirit or a Soul, let alone download some childhood memories using a USB port to feed its emotional chip.

The vision instilled by the sun-sign Men belongs to the spirit of the winds. It is an ancient mode of consciousness that enables both Eagles and Men to see the unseen and even the never seen (and also to procrastinate, but that’s another issue). I’m afraid this aspect of reality cannot be coded into software and compiled successfully.

Maybe with a computer that runs on a 13-bit operating system…

7-Eb: Purposeful Paths (19 September 2017)

Born 7-Eb: Victoria Beckham, Hu Jintao, Ryan Klesko

Purposeful paths

7-Eb is the path from death back to reality

Stage 7 is all about purpose. The purpose of the 1-Cimi (death, change) growth pattern is to find a new way, which is 7-Eb. However, in this process it is obvious that finding a new way happens halfway through the 13-day journey, and there’s much more to come down the road before concluding on 13-Tijax.

Let’s say I get married on 1-Cimi. The bachelor I used to be dies on the day the husband is born. I’ll never do what I used to do, and never be who I used to be. That’s one way of looking at death, as something irreversible. Through this point of view, Cimi (Kame) or death can happen while I’m still alive, and I <usually> survive it.

As each individual life goes through at least some of these life-changing events, old roles and states of mind are left behind, as new responsibilities and aspirations are assumed. Growth continues through a series of transformations.

Naturally, it takes me time to realize what I lost, and go over the things I could have done differently. I must first shed my old habits like a reptilian skin, and get used to a new routine. As time goes by, I reach 7-Eb, when I begin to see the outlines of what lies ahead, and gain a better perspective of what I left behind.

Because the past tends to haunt me like a wolf, I might find myself being busy sulking for quite some time. This must come to pass and play out before I can fully realize why I couldn’t possibly have stayed single, and why getting married was the best thing that could ever happen to me.

When considering the above example, please note that the Tzolkin turn-based. In other words, out-of-time. Coming to terms with the death and rebirth process of getting married (or becoming a father, or an orphan, etc.) can take any measure of time. In the timeless Tzolkin round, the 1-Cimi paradigm of change lasts 13 days minimum.

It usually takes much more.

An epic, real-life-changing learning period like becoming a spouse can involve spending years of regret and perceived failure, staying in a house with someone who isn’t really a friend, out of meaning, and out of divine purpose.

This is due to the error in time.

It can also be quite different.

8-Ahau: Infinite Light (6 September 2017)

Infinite Light

“If the Universe came to an end every time there was some uncertainty about what had happened in it, it would never have got beyond the first picosecond. And many of course don’t.” – Douglas Adams (8-Ahau) from Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (1987)

Destiny.

A word with much gravity and a touch of romanticism. Is there really a destination that I can single out and abbreviate as being my destiny? The thing with destinations is that once you arrive at one of them you get a view good enough to recognize the next one. So how can there be a destiny in the sense of an ultimate destination, some life-long goal that can be actually realized and materialized? And if there is one, in what way do I continue living without destiny beyond its achievement?

There can’t be such a thing as a future destiny, unless I define death itself as a destiny, followed by nothing. Instead of looking to the future in search of it, I think destiny is everything that has already happened, along with whatever’s transpiring now. So in other words destiny is made up of my karmic accumulation of the past, over which I have no control, and the now moment, for which I have total responsibility.

… and 8-Ahau says: “perfection cannot be realized tomorrow, nor remembered as past glory. It abides now and always, beckoning me to discover it.”
