213. Adrian Gilbert's End of Time        24 Sept 2006

Adrian Gilbert's new book, The End of Time - The Mayan Prophecies Revisited has just come out in the UK and will shortly be published in USA under the title of 2012: Mayan Year of Destiny. The sub-title on the UK edition is: December 21st 2012 - Is This the End of the World as We Know It?

See the DiaGnosis review.



214. The Origin of the "Hunab Ku" Symbol        24 Sept 2006

Hunab Ku

The "Hunab Ku" symbol, is widely presumed to be a Maya representation of a major Maya deity and the centre of our Milky Way galaxy. You can find a representation of it at the centre of the Dire Gnosis logo on the index page of this website.  Anthropologist John Hoopes recently asked the Year 2012 discussion group if anyone could pinpoint any Maya sculpture, ceramic vessel, or other Precolumbian Maya source where it is shown.

The discussion brought out some interesting facts, summarised as follows:

The symbol became widely known when Jose Arguelles published The Mayan Factor in 1987, where it appears in circular form on the cover of the book, and as part of many illustrations. On p. 32, a rectangular version is labelled "Hunab Ku", and on p.52, the rectangular version is shown and labelled as "Hunab Ku: One Giver of Movement and Measure". On p. 30-32, Arguelles explains that in 1968, he visited a little town called Teotitlan del Valle near the Zapotec site of Monte Alban in the mountains of Oaxaca, in central Mexico, and he was shown two rugs with this pattern on them in a textile shop. He bought one in blue and orange. The connection between the title of Hunab Ku and the design is not explained by Arguelles, but seems to have come via the modern Maya day-keeper, Hunbatz Men. Arguelles says on p.40 that he met Hunbatz Men in 1985, and admits that he was heavily influenced by him. The following year, in 1986, Hunbatz Men published a book in Spanish called Religion Ciencia Maya, (published in 1990 in English as Secrets of Maya Science/Religion), he says that the Mexicas (Aztecs) worshipped Hunab Ku, and they (as well as the Mixtecs), also worshipped the Milky Way, as represented in the "G symbol" (p.40-41). Men calls Hunab Ku "The Only Giver of Movement and Measure", and at the bottom of p.34 he says that "in order to understand the sacred Hunab Ku...one must venerate the origin of zero, the Milky Way...".

According to the official Mayanists, such as Sharer, Hunab Ku means "one god" in Yucatec Mayan language, and was the creator of the universe and equivalent to Itzamna, but "Hunab Ku seems to have figured little in the life of the ancient Maya and no representations of Hunab Ku have been identified in the codices or elsewhere."

In John Major Jenkins' 1998 book, Maya Cosmogenesis 2012, he shows the rectangular symbol, (p.329) and says it originates in the Nuttall Codex (a pre-conquest Mixtec document named after Zelia Nuttall who identified and published it), but after failing to find it in the the Nuttall codex, Hoopes contacted John Major Jenkins, who said he had seen the symbol as a frontispiece House of the Dawn - in a romance novel by Ryan, published in 1914, and also in an academic work by Zelia Nuttall, but he'd rechecked and it was not in the Nuttall Codex.

Next,  I located the symbol in its rectangular form in a 1922 edition of Herbert J. Spinden's Ancient Civilizations of Mexico and Central America (p.220), with the caption, "Mexican blanket with the design representing sand and water".

John Major Jenkins finally settled the matter, when he found the rectangular design in the Codex Magliabecchiano, published in 1903, with a commentary by Zelia Nuttall, which is an Aztec document and dates from some time before 1601. Hoopes went on to find that the codex shows variations of the rectangular design, and says they are "mantas" - mantles or ritual cloaks that were used in festivals - in particular, the festival of  lip plugs. The word for lip plug was originally mistranslated as spider water, which is given in the caption.

So, in summary, the "Hunab Ku" symbol was originally a rectangular symbol used by the Aztecs as a ritual cloak design, known as the Mantle of Lip Plugs (or, arguably, mantle of spider water). The symbol survives as a rug design being sold in central Mexico, but was associated with the Milky Way and the god Hunab Ku by Jose Arguelles in 1987, who changed the symbol to a circular one. This is how the symbol appeared in the 16th century Codex Magliabecchiano:

217. Review: The World Upside Down        Nov 07

The World Upside Down by Kris and Jo Van Den Driesche says on the back cover that it will "fascinate and astound those who read it". .. well, it was certainly quite astounding. This is the conclusion of the review

The authors present the interesting idea that the alternative precession theory combined with Dmitriev 's plasma theories could signify a changing orientation betwen heliopspheric plasma and interstellar plasma, and that this could reach a crescendo every half-precession cycle, when the magnetic fields of the planets of the solar system all reverse. BUT they have made what seems to be an almost intentional miscalculation, so as to force-fit the evidence to their preconceived half-precession cycle of 12,888 years ...and they have made an absurd 6,000-year error while copying from Michael Coe's book, Breaking the Maya Code

218. UFO landings in 2011-2012        Nov 07

According to an ex-aerospace employee, "Mr.X." documents he saw reveal a forthcoming UFO landing in 2011-2012:

What were some of the most interesting things you viewed or handled?

The disks mentioned above and the documents about them. They told of landing in the very near future (2011-2012) and intervening in nuclear conflicts. The documents explained that the disks were viewed either on the ship itself or in a laboratory on a device from the ship. They also contained symbols that flashed across the screen that were not understood. This was mentioned along with a plan to try to decipher the symbols. They were the same or similar symbols that were found on some of the I-beams and other pieces that were found at the crash sites according to the documents.

What kind of response have you had so far from the public?

This is a tough question because the answer is wide-ranging. For the most part, I have had positive reaction to my initial interviews. There are some that have misunderstood me and think that when I said that there will be many deaths in the years 2011 and 2012, that I meant at the hands of ETs. This is not what I said or what I meant. The deaths will be attributed to war, natural disasters, and panic. There will be a mass of information released that will shatter most of our core beliefs. Some will panic because their belief system will be shattered. Some will be angry because they have been lied to for so long. Some will think that the end of the world is here. Most will be confused at best about religious issues, since the truth will be told and that truth will shatter ALL religious beliefs. We will learn the true history of man through the ETs and the powers that be. It is inevitable. If the world stays on the track it is on – and I see no reason for it to change! – we will have to be shown the truth. And if those who run the world do not do it, the ETs will.

222. Contemporary Mayan Geomagnetic Prediction     Apr 08


A report on the "Lord Pakal Ahau's Maya Diaries" site says that according to "Maya priest, Señor Luis Nah, a 17th Generation descendant of the last Chilam Balam (Mayan Prophet)":

"The Tlauilos, a wise people from the Mexican altiplane, said we are in the Fifth Sun, but it does not mean that has happened five times only. We only have memory of what has taken place five times in history but we are not aware of previous occurrences....According to Mayan knowledge and the Sacred Round of Katuns, we are travelling in a sidereal space, in which we will arrive to a populated zone with many asteroids and celestial objects influencing our gravitational field, and considering the effect of the Moon on the oceans, these celestial bodies will move Earth’s magnetic field producing oscillations in many levels at different degrees."

223. Tortuguero Monument 6 - The Preceding Text      Apr 08


In a post at the Aztlan discussion group, the epigrapher Dave Stuart supplied a translation of the piece of text just preceding the Tortuguero Prophecy. This puts the prophecy into context, so that we can see how the monument is dated and refers forward to the end of te 13th baktun (baktun 12, since the first was baktun zero ). Using the Maya Calendar date calculator, Mayacal (see Maya links page) , after doing a simple subtraction, we can ascertain the date that the monument was erected:

13. 0. 0. 0. 0
- 3. 8. 3. 9. 2
= Jan 14 669 AD

To obtain the calendar round date given bt Dave Stuart , (even though the Tzolkin glyph looks unidentifiable) we can also use the Mayacal calculator, though we get a selection of calendar round dates and it is unclear how 510 AD was selected:

Calendar Round
date =
8 Chuen 9 Mak

UPDATE: May 2009:

I have now consulted Gronemeyer's translation (in German) and find that the reason the choice of 510 AD was unclear, is that, where Dave Stuart has rendered the text as "(long ago) it happened...", the Monument actually says, " 8 Katuns, 0 Tuns, 7 Uinals, and 7 Kin previously it happened. " So, if we subtract from the date of the erection of the monument, as follows:
- 0. 8. 0. 7. 7
= Dec 7 510 AD...this is the Calendar Round day 8 Chen 9 Mak .



Dave Stuart:

"Here's my take on it. Remember that this stone is a small portion of a far longer inscription, too long to translate here. The overall text is devoted to the historical exploits of the local king named B'ahlam Ajaw, and highlights his dedication of a shrine for a local patron god in 669 A.D. Presumably this shrine or structure was where the monument was found by looters in the 1960s. This closing section begins with a mention of an earlier building or construction of a shrine (pib'naah) -- maybe the very same one -- during Early Classic times in 510 A.D. The final passage then links the later 669 dedication with the upcoming end of the 13th

Here's an unrefined stab at a full reading and translation:

uhtiiy waxak Chuwen b'olon(te') Mak
hekwaniiy K'anjalnaah
Upib'naah Ahkal K'uk'.
Cha' b'olon winikij ux ha'b' waxak winikha'b'(?) ux pik
tzuhtz-(a)j-oom u (w)uxlajuun pik
(ta) chan Ajaw ux(te') Uniiw
uhtoom ..?..
ye..?.. B'olon Yookte' ta ..?..

...(long ago) it happened, the day Eight Chuwen, the ninth of Mak
when the Becoming-Ripe-House was constructed(?).
It was the 'underground house' (shrine) of (the god) Ahkal K'uk'.
It was two and nine-score days, three years, eight-score years and 3
x 400 years
(before) the Thriteenth Pik will end
on Four Ajaw, the third of Uniiw,
when ..?.. will happen,
the ..?.. of B'olon Yookte' at ..?.."

From http://www.famsi.org/mailman/htdig/aztlan/2006-August/002533.html

The above translation of the prophecy is an earlier, slight variation, in which "Pik" is used instead of Baktun"- this is the preferred term also used by anthropologist Robert Sitler - and the later suggested word, "descent" is absent. Pakal Ahau" suggests that one of the damaged untranslated glyphs is Ek, or "darkness" - citing the online glyph dictionary here:

224. Andrew Smith Predicts "A Big Sloshing of Water"      Apr 08

Andrew Smith, who has published the first of set of 3 books called "The Revolution of 2012", has been giving lectures around Southern England. In 1992, he started channeling the Great White Brotherhood, concerning forthcoming changes in 2012. He was told by "Master KH" that the planets would be "broadly lined up in a straight line around 2012" * and that the Earth's axis tilt will "right itself" - change from its current tilt (around 23.5 degrees) to a position "much closer to the vertical" and that this will happen over 24 hours, making

" the Earth a much easier place to live on, actually, after it's all settled down - there will probably be a big sloshing of water going on - just the suddenness of this, and I don't know whether its going to be asteroids splashing in, or whatever - he didn't go into the detail other than just giving some general plausibility for it. He said its actually going to happen on December 17th and 18th..."

Smith says our freedom of choice will be withdrawn, so we can move to other planets if we don't want to be part of the 5th dimensional Earth.

* IN FACT, The planets will be spread through 8 atrological signs in late December 2012, so they will be no more "broadly lined up in a srtraight line" unless the line is as wide as the solar system, and in that case, it would be true on any day of any year, so it seems that the Great White Brotherhood have got their facts wrong here. See the astrological charts for 2012 in Helen Sewell's article, The Astrology of 2012 (next item below).

225. Astrologer Helen Sewell on 2012      Apr 08

In 2012, much of the world will be focussed on the U.K., since we are hosting the Olympic games. Psychological astrologer, Helen Sewell has writtten an article for 2012:Dire Gnosis, analysing the "birth chart" for the U.K., which was "born" in 1066. She provides astrological charts to illustrate her points, and shows how the UK chart for 2012 combines with the birth chart to suggest the trajectory of mass psychology. Strange as this may seem to some people, it reveals a fascinating story that rings true on many levels. Click here to read the article:




226. New Terence McKenna Film: The Alchemical Dream      Aug 08

Sacred Mysteries have just produced a new Terence McKenna film! McKenna worked with film-maker Sheldon Rochlin in the late nineties, to reveal the fascinating story of King Frederick V, the Elector Palatine and brief King of Bohemia from 1619 - 1620. McKenna died in 2000, and Rochlin died in 2002, before the film was finished, and Rochlin's step-son, Morgan Harris, has just completed work on the film and released it.

McKenna narrates the documentary, and also plays the part of Dr. John Dee, the English Queen Elizabeth's Court magician and astrologer. We are told the little-known story of how Frederick tried to officially introduce an alchemically-based kingdom, and how, although the plan didn't come to fruition, it did have an influence on the development of science and rationalism in Europe.

The film was shot in Prague, where the remains of Frederick's palace can be found. We are also shown around the only surviving original alchemical laboratory, in which Frederick's alchemists attempted to perform the Great Work.

McKenna brings over the mysterious world of alchemical thought, and it is obvious that he is the ideal man for this job; sufficiently erudite, to present the ideas so that they remain on the edge of understanding, teasing us forward into areas of unexplored mind. This is a film that will be watched again and again, each time giving us a further hint at the meanings behind the alchemical symbolism, nudging our understanding closer to the place of transmutation.





227. Abductee Claims Earth Will be Transformed in 2012      Feb 09

Riley Martin claims that at the age of 7, he was abducted by aliens and taken to their mothership, which is in orbit around Saturn. The aliens return to visit him every 11 years, and in 1987, he took three polaroid pictures of 4 ships following his car. The whole story has been recounted in his book, The Coming of Tan. He claims that the aliens (there are 7 differrent races living on the mothership, but he is mostly in touch with the race called the Biaviians), put an apparatus on his head and downloaded 144,000 alien symbols to his "neurological syntaxes" in a few minutes, (I think he means synapses, but he repeats this phrase).

"Martin claims that these aliens, flying aboard 'The Great Mother Ship' to which he is taken every time he is willingly "abducted," have given him this knowledge so that he can produce and sell hand-drawings of these symbols, which will allow passage aboard the Mother Ship when the Earth is 'transformed' in 2012."

Martin has been interviewed on the Jerry Springer show here . The second clip is here

228. Another Remote Viewer Blocked at 2012      Feb 09

A correespondent named John Crane has informed me of his remote viewing experiment that not only reinforces tales of some kind of block around 2012, but adds a new element:

"I myself got interested in the 2012 problem about 1984. Around that time, I met a very advanced psychic who was a good remote viewer, and in our discussions we eventually came to the shared belief that the human race was undergoing a great "sea shift" to another form. That ultimately led us to try to do remote viewing into the future and in a manner that Dee/Kelly would probably have appreciated, we did some duo tag team viewing, always to run into a block around 2012 - 2013. After a few sessions I developed and conceptualized a mirror, whereby he looked always at the mirror which in turn was magically changed to look at the future scene.
Well, we tried it and it worked the first and last time we ever were to work together again. He saw himself standing in a green farm field/pasture and then noticed that some people were standing some distance away talking to each other. Then one of them turned to him with a look of surprise and anger. My friend noted that and then said the man was walking up to him. And then my friend bent over as though he had been hit and hit hard. "You are not supposed to be here!", the stranger said. And the next time we tried, we would not get on that zone.


229. Aida's Strange Reality      Mar 09


Aida Gundersen, an astrologer from Norway has a website describing the bizarre developments in her life, including some very odd poltergeist effects. Here is her website: http://aidas-strange-reality.com/

Aida has realized that several asteroids are named after characters from Greek myths, and fascinating clues about what is to happen in 2012 can be deduced from seeing what happened in the myths, and how the asteroids relate to each other in 2012.

In Odysseus, Penelope and Ithaca - Our Journey Home, Aida tells how Odysseus is one of the few men who have been to the Underworld and succeeded in getting out again, and of his adventures away from his family for ten years, fighting the Trojan war. From August 2012 to July 2013, the asteroids named after the characters will be reunited,( Odysseus, Ulysses (Odysseus´ Latin name ), Penelope, his wife, Ithaca - his island home, and Telemachus, his son) just as they are in the myth, implying that we will have a reunion, a homecoming, a revelation of our true identities:

"What does it all mean? There is a possibility, that collectively, something or someone will finally return home after a long time away, that some big and important piece of the puzzle will be put into place eventually and that some things, which we don´t understand yet, will start to make more sense at last. We may experience some kind of collective homecoming and a long awaited reunion of some sort and we may see something right and longed for finally being restored to the "throne". Almost all of it will happen in the sign of Leo, which is ruled by the Sun and it´s possible, that our Sun will somehow play a role in it. Leo is the sign of personal identity and when Odysseus returns home, it is revealed who he really is. We may learn something new about our collective and personal identity, about who we really are and what is our place in the universe...."

Aida's summary paragraph brings to mind the return of the nine gods predicted by Tortuguero monument 6; the revelation of the after-death state predicted in the Chilam Balams, and the coming of the Taripay Pacha - Age of Meeting Ourselves Again, predicted by the Qero.


In Pandora and Her Box, she points out that :

"On 21 December 2012 Pandora will be in conjunction with the North Node in Scorpio. Scorpio is the sign of death and rebirth and North Node symbolises the direction in which things will develop (or are meant to develop, in accordance with some higher plan)."

In an inspired combination of the Pandora myth with recent events in the media, she shows how those we attack, denigrate and blame can be our liberators, as they can help show us our shadow material that has to be addressed before we can uncover our "divine sparkle"


A third essay that concerns 2012 is called Confucius and Lao Tse "the old way" versus "my way" The 2 asteroids Confucius and Laotse will be coming together in 2012. An analysis of these two bards shows that they represent our two sides - authoritarian and rebel, a meeting of the opposite sides of ourselves in 2012.


230. Peter Gersten Will Leap off Bell Rock in 2012      Mar 09

Peter Gersten, who runs the Pag E News.info website has announced that at 11.11 on December 21st 2012, he will leap off Bell Rock in Arizona. He explains why he has decided to to this on this webpage:


Here is his conclusion:

"Most of you will think that I am delusional and that my insane act will certainly result in my death. Death is inevitable - at least nowadays - and 100 years from now it won't matter whether I died in 2012 or 2013 or even 2020. But I believe that some type of cosmic portal will be opening at that time and place and that an opportunity will present itself. I fully expect that it will either lead to the next level of this cosmic program; freedom from an imprisoning time-loop; a magical Martian-like bubble; or something equally as exotic".

232. Solar stuff - latest      Mar 09

A solar storm is most likely to occur on Autumn equinox 2012, according to this article at mail Online:


This is very significant to the bizzarre Romanek Twist described below (item 234) in which it has just come to light that Romanek 's contact experiences in 2001 predicted an event within a day of this, that may concern the Egyptian mythological event that was later depiceted in the Book of Revelation as the dead rising from their graves.

New Scientist also concurs on the equinox sunstorm:


The Examiner points out that the hole discovered in Earth's magnetosphere by NASA'a THEMIS spacecraft could amplify the effects, especially since it is now much larger than originally thought :

Here is Guillermo's right forearm (inverted)...recognise it? It's monument 6 from Tortuguero - with its Classic era 2012 prophecy of the descent of the Bolon Yokte God(s)


234. ET Contact: Romanek's 2012 date decoded      Nov 09

In news item 133 we found that Stan Romanek's contact experiences produced a diagram that depicts a star in the Belt Of Orion, connected to the earth by a spiral line and that this correlates to the shaft of the Kings Chamber in the Pyramid of Giza, and represents the souls of the pharaohs returning to claim their bodies. Vincent Bridges revealed that this series of contact experiences started on September 21 2001: http://tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/2012-Theories/message/3569 Another bizzarre twist has just emerged.

Romanek's book has just come out, describing the encounters, and on pages 162-164, he shows a diagram showing a planetary alignment that he drew during hypnotic regressions of the experience. In the ensuing years, an astronomer decoded the date of the alignment as being the 21 September 2012, when the "10th planet" (officially a dwarf planet), Eris (originally called Xena, misnamed Xenia by some) will align with Mercury, Saturn Neptune, Mars and Pluto. Eris/Xena was not discovered until 2005, four years after Romanek's experience.

I have just checked on Cybersky, and although this is not a conjunction,m the planets do appear in the sky in a line in the order shown in Romanek's diagram (zenith view, time: 15.00 ) on 21st September 2012

This is Romanel's website: http://www.stanromanek.com/

Here is an archived internet radio interview from October 7th 2009 : http://giannihayes.net/?p=760 (starts after 11 minutes of general talk and advertisements) .

For the excerpt from Romanek's book, click on this lkink, then enter "2012" into the Look Inside Book search: Messages: The World's most Documented Exrraterrestrial Contact Story


As to what will occur on that date, go back up to item 232, Solar Stuff -latest and you will find that the Autmn Equinox 2012 has been predicted as a day of extreme solar activity. The equinox is on 22 September 2012.



235. NASA confirm changes to the heliosphere      Nov 09

NASA have had results from their Interstellar Boundary Exploere spacecraft (IBEX) that reveal a "ribbon" giving off "energetic neutral atoms" that is lying on the edge of te heliospere, right between the paths of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecrafts. The Voyagers were launched in 1977 and crossed into the heliosheath - the outer shell of the heliosphere in 2004 and 2007. ENAs are "formed when energetic electrically-charged particles " steal" an electron from another particle. Once neutral, they travel straight, unaffected by the solar magnetic field."


While this is not exactly a buildup of interstellar plasma, as reported by Dmitriev See item 128 - it does show a buildup of something on the heliosphere.


236. The 2012 Story - a New Book from JMJ     Nov 09

John Major Jenkins has written a great book in The 2012 Story - The Myths, Fallacies, and Truth Behind the Most Intriguing Date in History. It tells the story of how the 2012 code was cracked, and shows that, over and over again, since the first explorers discovered crumbling ruins of Maya cities, the great discoveries and leaps in knowledge and understanding have been made by amateur enthusiasts, rather than lettered academics. Of course, they are never really given the full credit, and the same thing is still happening today. Jenkins presents new evidence that comes from some of the first scholars to break ranks, that the Maya not only knew about precession, and encoded it in their codices and inscriptions, but they also encoded the galactic alignment event - and even recorded this in the Tortuguero Monument 6 inscription. This is the only Classic era inscription that mentions 2012. Some day after 2012, when all the hype has died down, JMJ's work will probably slowly become accepted by academia, though someone else will probably steal the limelight. This book records the recent developments, as the academic Mayanists hunker down and declare war on the 2012 topic, by denial, misinformation, misquoting, mockery, avoiding the issue, and similar tactics. Coming from some of the most respected figures in the field, this is quite shocking, but is backed up by actual audio recordings available online. This will be fairly shocking for many.

The final part of the book is also controversial, as Jenkins offers his take on the meaning of the end of the 13-baktun cycle to the Maya. In summary, this is transformation and renewal. JMJ's new analysis of the Popul Vuh myth, comparing with recent political events is compelling and fascinating. I won't give the game away, but thoroughly recommend this book - I will be reading it again for sure!

238. The Everything Guide to 2012     Nov 09

Mark Heley's new book The Everything Guide to 2012: All You Need to Know about the Theories, Beliefs, and History Surrounding the Ancient Mayan Prophecies, is an excellent piece of work. Even though this is one of those books in a series, that includes the Everything Knitting Book, the Everything Dog Obedience Book, the Everything Bridesmaid Book, it far outshadows other books in series, such as the Complete Idiots Guide to 2012 by Colin and Cynthia Andrews. In that case, the authors had to hurriedly do their research from scratch, while Mark Heley has been studying 2012 for many years, and has filmed interviews with many of the well-known writers on the subject, for a forthcoming film. It is very well written, leading logically forward from one topic to the next, getting more and more fascinating as it goes on. The second half of the book was for me most interesting, since Heley gets into the latest research and discoveries. The plasma research leads on well from the material covered in Beyond 2012 Catastrophe or Ecstasy (Catastrophe or Awakening in USA) , and Heley is not afraid to explore the most plausible of the Earth-change ideas, but ultimately comes to a very uplifting and optimistic conclusion about the forthcoming changes on this planet. You will not be disappointed in this book - it caters for the novice and also those of us who already are well-read on the topic. This is another book I want to read again! WHATS GOING ON? THAT'S TWO BOOKS REVIEWED WITH NO CRITICISMS!

241. Finally: NASA agrees Solar System is passing through a magnetic interstellar cloud. Dec 09

"Using data from Voyager, we have discovered a strong magnetic field just outside the solar system," explains lead author Merav Opher, a NASA Heliophysics Guest Investigator from George Mason University. "This magnetic field holds the interstellar cloud together and solves the long-standing puzzle of how it can exist at all." However, this is not really a plasma, as described by Dmitriev but Hydrogen and Helim atoms. Here is the article:
