Argüelles viewed his role as a visionary, saying "My job as a visionary is to envision the best possible outcome for humanity." He dedicated much of his life to promoting an alternative calendar based on a cycle of 13 months of 28 days each, which he believed would help bring about world peace. He coined the slogan "Time is Art" for the Planetary Art Network (PAN) slogan, suggesting that time is a vehicle for our creative experience.
In Time and the Technosphere (2002), Argüelles devises and promotes a notion that he calls the "Law of Time", in part framed by his interpretations of how Maya calendrical mathematics functioned. In this notional framework Argüelles claims to have identified a "fundamental law" involving two timing frequencies: one he calls "mechanised time" with a "12:60 frequency", and the other "natural [time] codified by the Maya [that is] understood to be the frequency 13:20". To Argüelles, "the irregular 12-month [Gregorian] calendar and artificial, mechanised 60-minute hour" is a construct that artificially regulates human affairs, and is out-of-step with the natural "synchronic order". He proposes the universal abandonment of the Gregorian calendar and its replacement with a thirteen moon, 28 day calendar, in order to "get the human race back on course" by the adoption of this calendar of perfect harmony so the human race could straighten its mind out again."

The primary aim of the Transcendent Nation Foundation is to promote the possibility of world peace by means of personal realization and holographic action. This is based on the simple idea that when a critical mass in the body of humanity awakens, the whole collective will be awakened.
Rainbow bridge meditation July 25th Day out of Time. Tomorrow is July 25th 2015 Red Solar Skywalker Kin 113 Galactic Portal The day after is the White Planetary Wizard Kin 114 Galactic Portal the energy held through the whole year to July 25th 2016 It's an excellent opportunity to create magic down to earth. It's in the air
The Day Out of Time is coming soon! You are invited to create an event or meditation in your community on 25 July 2015, Red Solar Skywalker, to celebrate time as art, holding ceremonies of universal forgiveness and demonstrating peace through culture. This is the third year in the 7-year cycle from 2013-2020 of Opening the Seven Light Gates. This Day Out of Time we open the Third Light Gate!
GLOBAL WATER APPRECIATION DAY CEREMONIES
Dr. Masaru Emoto, the water messenger, was a strong supporter of the 13 Moon calendar, and created the Global Water Appreciation Day on July 25 to coincide with the annual Day Out of Time, Peace through Culture festival. Let's dive deep into the ocean of Time and synchronize our festivals with Global Water Blessing ceremonies on behalf of the purification and healing of our Planet!

Here's the 2-dimensional Tzolkin cycle of 260 Kin, with the Solar Seal of today in the 113th Kin-position, in the row just left of the center vertical row. You will notice it's in a row of black squares, called Galactic Portals. Their meaning is explained on the LawofTime site, the title says it all, if you will. In my experience the knowledge of Mayan timecounting and the "translation" presented here, mainly through Arguelles vibrations and at present day through his spouse Stephanie, is one of many ways to experience it, if studied.
During the years of working with Dreamspell tools of others and designing my own, like the Tzolkintoy perpetual calender and the 13 Tones illustrations, I found that going through my daily life affairs and following the Tzolkin-cycle each day, reading the Solar Seal and tone of the day, both reveal information that is as personal as unique. Body-sense and daily life in the 3D world can't be excluded, unless I choose to experience this knowledge on the level of the mind only. As an artist I do love the saying "Time is Art". For the creative way of learning to understand concepts of the Mayan culture, of so long ago, in a very different part of the world, is the best road to follow, I find. Maybe that's true for much more than this subject.
With a background of church-education, born as a minister's daugther, I've learned that no belief system, idea and concept can be forced upon living beings, only shared and acted upon by the owner who holds them. Later in my life I have found the humor, present in my style of communicating, that it's a life-long teaching to me to let go of convincing others, by my inner program of making my own statements as final and absolute for others as they are for me. (Mother Superior) I've found this tendency is a shadow-aspect of a quality in me that knows very well how to just be in the joy for life, very simple. My name B.B.B. reminds me of that all the time
I can say now that no fixed position holds truth, regarding absoluteness, myself and others find it for ourselves if wished for. Defending fixed ideas and views, showing them off to others in church and family-life, for example by reading the Bible loud, has been a survival instinct in my ancestors and myself, until I learned to face that attitude within, through painful experiences. Now I'm very happy to experience that learning and finding new insights never ends. There's no deadline... is there? Even not knowing isn't an issue anymore. Holding a question through time often presents an unexpected point of view. I know that I'm quickly alerted and very curious, to delve into things for better understanding, an explorer and wanderer, also for a better understanding of other people's motives and intentions. They're part of the frame around their existence.
These visions below resonate hugely with my point of view on the role of internet as a virtual world. The text in large size is highly significant, for I see the cyberspace populated, possibly soon, by "aliens" to planet Earth, in human bodies, due to its very nature and their unconscious use of it. This description is very clear and spot on, I couldn't have said it better, although I've said a lot about it, as some of you may know. This is part of a text I found in the link below:
(quote) Teilhard de Chardin's description of the noosphere would seem to be more spiritual than that of Le Roy, underlining a 'psycho-biological' dimension linking mind and spirituality to the physical nature of living systems. In his most famous and widely discussed work "The Phenomenon of Man" Teilhard de Chardin (1959: 202) defined the noosphere as 'a new layer, the "thinking layer", which since its germination at the end of the Tertiary era, has spread over and above the world of plants and animals. In other words, outside and above the biosphere there is the noosphere.'
He draws attention to the idea of an emerging globally reflexive consciousness - creating a 'plurality of individual reflections grouping themselves together and reinforcing one another in the act of a single unanimous reflection' (ibid.: 277). The human phenomenon is seen as a manifestation of the universe unfolding on itself and becoming aware of its own existence - akin to a baby seeing itself in the mirror for the first time. He continues as follows:
"Unless we give up all attempts to restore man to his place in the general history of Earth as a whole without damaging him or disorganizing it, we must place him above it, without, however, uprooting him from it. And this amounts to imagining, in one way or another, above the animal biosphere a human sphere, the sphere of reflexivity, of conscious invention, of the conscious unity of souls (the noosphere if you will) and to conceiving, at the origin of this new entity, a phenomenon of special transformation affecting pre-existent life: hominization .... Nothing can be compared with the coming of reflective consciousness except the appearance of consciousness itself". (Teilhard de Chardin 1966: 63)" (end of quote)
These two texts below are present in the Law of Time website, created to present the work and vision of Jose Arguelles:
(quote) "The damage emanating from human depletion of resources and consequent emission of greenhouse gases would not have come about if the human thinking layer - as the noosphere - had not first engineered the concepts of machine technology, and the fossil fuel consumption or atomic energy required to operate this vast complex, the technosphere. We must understand that the distinguishing feature of the human element in the biosphere is the capacity to simultane- ously evolve and then participate in the thinking layer of the planet, the noosphere.
Without understanding the meaning and evolutionary purpose of the noosphere as the self-reflective mind or mental layer of the planet, we will not truly comprehend the kinds of solutions necessary to re-establish a viable future for the planet. As P. R. Masani points out, thus far, " the ecological movement falls short, the common stumbling back being the neglect of the noosphere." This is very much to the point.
Just as most humans are barely conscious of being a functioning - or malfunctioning - member of the biosphere, even fewer are aware of participating in a collective mental field called the noosphere. This noosphere is the mental field that we take for granted as the psychological environment common to all. This unconsciously enclosing mental environment is charged with assumptions, and, depending upon what part of the world you might be in, it may be filled with glaring contradictions. The mental assumptions of a farmer in Iowa may be very different from those of a farmer in the interior provinces of China, much less of one in Iran. Yet, no matter where we are, we generally assume that what we assume every one else assumes, and that if someone assumes differently, it is they who are wrong and not we. This is the unconsciousness of the noosphere".
and further on:
(quote)"The present cybersphere is essentially what Marshall McLuhan envisioned in the 1960s as "the global village." As McLuhan wrote in the introduction to his most famous text "Understanding media" (1964)
"Today after more than a century of electric technology, we have extended our electronic nervous system itself in a global embrace, abolishing both space and time as far as our planet is concerned. Rapidly we approach the final phase of the extensions of man - the technological simulation of consciousness ..." Some thirty years ahead of his time, McLuhan's global village is equally a definition of the cybersphere - "the technological simulation of consciousness."
Even before McLuhan, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, who along with Vernadsky and Jules LeRoy coined the word, noosphere, also perceived that the next evolutionary stage would be intermediated by a global electronic communication network.
In the process of attaining the mystical trans-material state of the noosphere, Teilhard de Chardin clearly foresaw the phase of the cybersphere and the global village as the gestation of the mystical body of Christ, the culmination or Omega Point of human evolution. In his vision, Teilhard saw the entire planet "dotted with luminous points, each one of those stars corresponding to some laboratory or some apparatus around which the human, through its charge of energy and its union, was here and now being transformed into some neo-human 'isotope' until the hitherto dark face of the planet had begun to sparkle with ultra-humanity ... stirring into motion: not with the monotonous motion of a firmament, but with the creative movement of an involutive galaxy." (Teilhard de Chardin, The Activation of Energy, pp. 352-53)
The Internet performs this function, the creation of a global village, where around some apparatus - the PC or cell phone - the human is trans-forming itself into a neo-human (the Ethnosphere) or more appropriately, homo noosphericus. The cybersphere produced by the Internet, cell phone, and fax is a skeletal noosphere, a wildly random self-organizing slice of human consciousness talking to itself in an anarchic diversity of voices. But for evolution to occur in consciousness on a scale equal to the breadth of the planet, it requires far more intentionality than the "laissez faire" gigaplex of the Internet.
Psychotechnical unification of a sort has been achieved that abolishes all national boundaries, but a yet higher state of mind must be attained. After all, the Internet is only a tool, and while it deploys a randomly ideated noosphere in the accumulation of virtually every bit of knowledge there ever was, it does not really, in and of itself, define the future, the noosphere.
Of necessity, as the evolved condition of the consciousness of the whole of life itself (and not just the historical human's encyclopedic regurgitation of knowledge), the noosphere is above and beyond any tool. The noosphere is truly of the mind, the invisible mental or intelligence sheathe of the planet as a whole celestial body. As such, the noosphere is wholly of the mind and of a dimension of mind that we have scarcely been able to think about or grasp (end of quote).
Last Saturday, in Glastonbury, while waiting for the bus, Graham Hancock came walking by with his companions. I walked towards him and asked "Are you Graham Hancock?" and immediately felt shy, for having done that. I said "I presume, quite a lot of people know you and spot you when meeting in the street. Sorry, if I disturbed you in an unwelcome way" Graham smiled and held out his hand "Thank you for recognizing me and saying "Hello" he said. Today, on my Galactic Mayan birthday Lamat 13, the Cosmic Star Kin 208, I've found Graham again in the videos presented here. Hmmm, synchro-nicety
