SCIENCE IN ANCIENT ARTWORK Extract No.24
Math, Geometry, and Design |

The procedure by which we have been relating the mathematics of the ancient reckoning system (certain historically significant
numbers), with respect to the general rules of geometry *and* the elements of design within ancient artwork, yields convincing
evidence that the basis within ancient artwork may have been more reasoned than generally considered. To observe a
coincidence of so many distinct factors (such as the 260-fractal count, the numbers of years of the legend of the Four Suns,
the geometrical division of space within the Aztec Calendar, and the elements of the design within that calendar), suggests just
such a relationship between science and artwork.

Scholars know that the ancients computed the orbital timing of some of the planets in our solar system. The historically significant
numbers exist, sculpted in stone for all to see. Yet, we are not certain as to how the computations of the timing were effected.
*The method of computation* remains unknown. We have been exploring the possibility of peeling back that method as of the
apparent logic of numbers coming out of the historical record. As observed in this extract, the apparently random numbers in the
legend of the Four Suns (676, 364, 312, 676) may not have been randomly chosen at all.

The elements of the ratchet-like design on the concentric rings of the Aztec Calendar reflect an exactness and preciseness
of placement and execution in the sculpture that suggest profound meanings. It may be impossible to peel back the rings, as
one would the layers of an onion, and discover the core meaning of this intriguing work of art. Yet, by relating the historically
significant numbers that appear in the records of ancient societies, with the concepts of geometry and, the visible elements of
the ancient designs, we may find relationships that suggest the kind of logical illustrations and explanations discussed in this extract.
Our perception and interpretation of the relationships may not reflect *exactly and precisely* those conceived by the creator of the
stone sculpture itself. But, we may begin to suspect that a similar procedure served as the basis for relating math, geometry and
artistic expression in the ancient artwork.

THE AZTEC CALENDAR: MATH AND DESIGN In the book
The Aztec Calendar: Math and Design, Charles William
Johnson examines the possible relationships between mathematics and geometry.
The historically significant numbers may reflect progressions which in
turn may be translated into geometrical figures and designs. No one knows
for certain how the Aztec Calendar may have been read or interpreted.
Its simbolic design is striking and has intrigued scholars for centuries.
The Aztec Calendar: Math and Design explores the stone's elements and
rings in relation to their spatial divisions in an attempt to discern
a possible method of computation, using the historically significant numbers
of the ancient reckoning system. The book promotes the existence of specific
mathematical posits that the geometrical spatial division of the calendar's
elements appear to obey. Purchase and download original 2005 published version. |
