welcomes you to

where you will find published research findings about
Science in Ancient Artwork
Ancient Animation
Paleoanimation
Science Today
Math and Geometry Encoded into Ancient
Artwork
In the Science in Ancient Artwork works, I
offer studies about ancient calendars, such as the Aztec Calendar,
and how the ancients reckoned time. Studies also cover the math
and geometry encoded into the ancient art. I have studied seven
different cultures to date, with publications mainly covering at
present the Aztecs and the Maya of Mesoamerica and, the Kemi of
ancient Egypt. You will analyses of the geometry and math behind
the pyramids of these fascinating ancient cultures. Soon many more
findings will become available about art from Peru, China, Japan,
and Korea.
The Ancients Designed Animation into Their
Artwork
My studies in ancient artwork led me to animate
the artwork of many of these cultures. This kind of Ancient Animation,
I call it Paleoanimation and have published mainly two examples,
one of the movement encoded into the Aztec Calendar and another
one about the movement encoded into the Maya image of Pakal Votan
on the lid of his sarcophagus. Many more paleoanimations will become
available for viewing on this website from ancient China, Japan
and Peru. We should begin uploading additional paleoanimations soon,
so come back and visit us often. When I say we, I also mean Jorge
Luna Martínez who has also designed some of the animations that
you will be able to view here.
Ancient Animation Through Math and Geometry
by Design
The interesting point about the paleoanimations
is that they are based upon the math and geometry studies, which
led me to consider the possibility that the ancients themselves
designed their artwork with the concept of animation encoded in
their works. So, even though Jorge and I are producing the animations,
in fact, the ancients were the real paleoanimators. With a single
art design they encoded the concept of movement into their work
for all of us to see generations later. Why do I say that? Because
they employed stone for their work which lasts generations upon
generations, when they could used wood which would have been much
easier to work with and would have just been for their own consumption.
But the ancients obviously had a profound sense of time and human
history, and the need to communicate to later generations hence,
their tremendous efforts at working and sculpting in stone.
Find Out How Ancient Artwork Relates to
Science Today
Upon studying the math and geometry in ancient
artwork, it quickly became obvious to me that the ancient reckoning
systems of space and time, math and geometry, had relevancy for
today's studies in physics, chemistry and astronomy. From there
it was a stone's throw to considering the significance of the ancient
math and geometry in Science Today. The first study that I carried
out in this sense was to relate the ancient Maya Long Count, for
analyzing extremely long periods of time on Earth and in the Cosmos,
with the study of the elements and their atomic structure.
A New Periodic Table
Based on Ancient Math
and Geometry
With those studies, I produced a restructuring
of the periodic table of the elements based on the numbers coming
out of the Maya Long Count. I call this new periodic table, The
Schemata of the Elements. You will find available for viewing here
over 6000 different schematic analyses of the chemical and physical
properties and characteristics of the elements.
All Things Are Related
In the studies that you will find here, students
are encouraged to explore relationships between not only ancient
knowledge and contemporary cognitive fields, but to consider relationships
among chemistry, physics, astronomy, geography, reckoning time,
math and geometry, and many other fields, irrespective of the particular
timeframe in which the knowledge was produced. When you delve into
these works, affirming that you are a chemist and therefore have
no need to know anything about geography or astronomy or ancient
math and geometry will not hold water. In approaching the studies
offered here, an open mind is required. I am certain that you will
in fact perceive relationships that I have not been able to detect,
no matter how hard I have been looking for as many relationships
as possible.
So, come on in; see what you can see; see
how many relationships you can find in discovering the Earth's matrix.
Consider just one example;
then, add onto it or, better still, create your own.
