The Code Behind the Maya Long Count
Part II

Vigor Berg

With this article I want to express my gratitude to Charles William Johnson whose wide range of studies in ancient arts has inspired and supported my research. Together with Patrizia Norreli-Bachelet I consider Charles William Johnson a candidate for the Nobel Peace prize.

Charles has written a case study about the significance of the synodic Venus period 583.890411 days as quoted in my article The Code behind the Long Count. He has mainly restricted his study to the significance of the mantissa .890411, although he has also mentioned the product of the numbers in the period, which equals 34 560 (5x8x3x8x9x4), and how they relate to the Maya figures. Charles has discovered new connections which he will take up in his review of this essay.

Let me add a few things which I also believe to be of symbolic significance. The sum of the figures involved equals 39 which is a number that we can also find in 3 900 000 days. This is the hypotenuse of the Maya triangle that has the proportions 3:4:5. The perimeter of the triangel is 9 360 000 days which is the period of the 5th Sun. There are 39 books in the Old Testament. The sum of all the figures from 1 - 39 = 780, expressed in days, equals three Tzolkin which equal one synodic period of Mars to 99.99%. If we divide the product 34 560 by 40 we get 864. If we multiply 34 560 by 40 we get 1 382 400 which in days equals 2 368 synodic periods of Venus counted as 21 600 days / 37. This count I call the Maya generation count because three generations equal sixty Tun. 34 560 days also allow for 1 170 "synodic months" counted as 384 days / 13. 1 170 days is also a significant figure in the Long Count. Sixty Tun, 21 600 days, are connected to Venus and Jupiter as I have shown in my first essay. This time period equals 731 "synodic months" to 99.94%. If we use 29.6 days for a "synodic month" this results in the figure 729.729729729. I will at a later stage prove the symbolic significance of the figures 729 and 729.729729729.

The figure 1 382 400 days corresponds to the Pythagorean triangle with the sides 129 600, 172 800 and 216 000 days. The perimeter of the triangle is 518 400 days. If we add a square to the side 216 000 days we get a construction that has the perimeter of 518 400 days plus 864 000 days, which gives a total perimeter of 1 382 400 days. When we use the generation count, which simplifies geometrical constructions, then 1 382 400 days equal 2 368 synodic periods of Venus. The perimeter of this construction also corresponds to 46 800 lunations according to the count 384 days/13. The Maya ruler Kukulkán is associated with 819 819 days and 1 404 synodic periods of Venus. Jesus-Christ can in a similar way be equated with 864 000 days. This equals 1 480 synodic periods of Venus according to the generation count.
