Link to previous trecena: 1-Chuen, Part 2
Note: This post was updated Today, 7-Oc! Please read below and also – excellent discussions in the comments section.
To reiterate on our current trecena subject, the keywords throughout the 1-Kan trecena are Degrees of Harmony as tools for manifesting Basic Abundance. The question that was asked was: “How much Choice do we really have?”
Re-reading the brilliant discussion in the comments section below (that’s it. I’m not plugging it any further – it’s Choice now) – I can safely say from my end of Reality that this was the theme so far, and emphatically so.
We’ll continue now with the regular daily digest format. I’ll finish up stage 6 and 7 today, and expect to publish the first days of Part 2 of the trecena by Tuesday night.
I turn the Mike to you.
1-Kan [4 July 2011]
An entire post has been dedicated to this day: “1-Kan Trecena Analysis – Prelude: 4th of July SPECIAL!” Please refer to it, reflect and comment, if you will.

2-Chicchan [5 July 2011]
To clarify the significance of this day, and also, to demonstrate how easy it is to learn about it, I’ll just fish out the first search result for the keywords “Yasser Arafat” and “documentary”:
On top of that, I’ll add the first search result for the keywords “Noam Chomsky” and “2011”:
Both of these men were born 2-Chichan. Both are controversial, to say the very least. Both resonate with the current leadership crisis around the Med, and especially the old kingdom of David, Israel, and Rothschild.
Trying to Heal the World
Every MD in almost every hospital around the world wears 2-Chichan on his doctor’s robe. It’s in the Old Testament, it’s the DNA in modern genetics. It is an ancient symbol of Life, given and taken away.
If and when you find yourself in hospital staring at that symbol, remember that it signifies the doctor’s ability and skill to help you, as well as the well-established skills and knowledge of your own innate Doctor (your Body) who’s been healing you since day one.
Hence – Dual Serpent.

3-Cimi* [6 July 2011]
Well, here we go again! 10-consecutive Portal Days coming right at you.
Cimi signifies a form of surrender. In the context of the 8th uinal only just began, 3-Cimi is very much like the point in the Roller-Coaster ride when the cars have completed their painstaking climbing up uinals 1-7, and the first cars are already plunging down into oblivion, taking everyone else with them.
Going Deeper down the Rabbit Hole and what’s after the Matrix CORE
I’d like to use a global-cultural meme right now, if I may.
The Postmodern-day Muad’Dib/Messiah/The One is also known as Neo.
Keanu Reeves, who is Agent Smith’s adversary in the Matrix series, is 3-Edznab. So, according to the Mayan Tzolkin calendar, the Matrix (Agent Smith) means Boundless Death (3-Cimi, Hugo Weaving) against Humanity (Neo) which is portrayed by Boundless Reflections (3-Edznab, Reeves).
You want to know what “Boundless Reflections” mean? Check this one out:
In this scene Neo and the Architect of the Matrix are discussing mother Earth. She is played by the Oracle character, and represents… well you know, right?
3-Edznab is coming up on the next Southern trecena: 1-Cib, right after the Tzolkin Summer has began.
“The Matrix is Older than you Think!”
It immediately reminded me of a dream I had.
I was standing next to Harry Potter, in Albus Dumbledore’s office. The walls were littered with various Dead people from the past. They were moving and talking between themselves. The Matrix is ancient indeed, my fellow travelers.
Richard Harris (Dumbledore), by the way, is 2-Lamat (Manik Trecena), while Daniel Radcliffe (Potter) is 6-Lamat (Akbal Trecena).
Albus was the Architect. Now I get it.

4-Manik* [7 July 2011]
Speaking of Manik, 4-Manik’s message and energy is the most balanced form of Medicine known in the Mayan culture (and so is 8-Manik). So, if you’re praying for someone’s health – this is the day for focusing your thoughts, prayers, and intentions.
Manik is the Deer, or more precisely – the Raam. It is the Spirit of the Forest, the one that doesn’t hesitate to claim his last stand, in a God-sent bush-fire, for example. The Raam shares symbolical grounds with the Father of Raam, a.k.a. Abraham (Hebrew).
Raam is also known as the Zodiac sign Aries. It reflects an age in history, dated around 2000 BC till 1 AD. The Age of Aries was replaced by the Age of Pices around the 4th Night of the National Underworld. The next age in Light is Aquarious.
Are we there yet?
To better understand this symbolism, I warmly recommend watching this amazing clip from Annie Lennox (12-Edznab, Manik trecena):
It is an amazing and good-hearted piece of Art, mixing Christian and Pagan symbolism. Father Raam appears right before the end. It is a Raam laid out in a Cross (4) position, pointing to the four cardinal directions of the heavens. This four-legged depiction of 4-Manik, the Raam on all his Fours in a forest clearing means the unending Pilgrimage of the Sons of Abraham.
Born on this day: Prince Charles, Malcolm X, Bugsy Siegel, Sharon Corr (The Corrs Irish Band)
Here’s a beautiful video, where you’ll be able to Hear 4-Manik in the magical-forest voice of Sharon Corr (in the amazing Green dress on the left):
“To hold us till the day, when Fear will lose its grip… Heaven knows no frontiers, and I’ve seen Heaven in your Eyes” – 4-Manik (Sharon Corr) harmonizing beautifully with 1-Cib (Caroline Corr).

5-Lamat* [8 July 2011]
One of Mexico’s National Treasures is the artist Frida Kahlo, who was born 3-Ahau on the Edznab trecena. Although she was one of a kind when it came to art, right up there with the big names, her memory is scattered between scandal and market value. Here is one of my favorites of hers:
She died 4-Ix on the Monkey trecena (the one just past in this Round). In Day/Night terms, this is the 3rd Night of the Tzolkin.
On the 2nd Night of the Galactic Underworld, just before Dawn of the 3rd Day, a Hollywood feature-film came out. The script was based on the biography of Frida Kahlo. The lead was given into the capable hands of Salma Hayek. Here is a famous clip from the film:
Salma Hayek was born 5-Lamat (which in Day/Night calculations add up to the Deepening 4th Night of the Tzolkin). We are already in the 3rd consecutive Portal Day, and what’s called for right now is a Precise Star (5-Lamat).
When you’re out in the desert at night, looking for good shelter, all you need is 1 Precise Star. A single star from the multitude, which you’ll be able to recognize immediately and navigate safely according to it to the nearest Oasis. It’s only a just a small star (5th stage Star) not yet 6 or 7, but it pinpoints your location and maps the way to more Abundance on this Southern Sunny trecena.
The Rabbit and Military Service
I have to admit that it surprised me to find that a very high percentages of Lamat-people find themselves making a career out of the Army, and then moving on to politics (generally politically-aware people). Lamat in Mayan means “Rabbit”, and it is an abundant sign of many talents and effective Hard Work. Closely following after Lamat, you’ll find Imix-people (Like Tony Blair 13-Imix) right next to Shamans/Ix-people (Like Joseph Stalin 3-Ix).
Among distinguished members of the Armed Forces worldwide you might find Hosni Mubarak (6-Lamat), Benjamin Netanyahu (7-Lamat), Mao Zedong (4-Imix), and, if you will: Margaret Thatcher (8-Ix).
I can also mention the ones on the actual Lamat trecena, who seem to be either Militaristic or Visionaries (true or false ones): Nelson Mandela (3-Oc), Dwight D. Eisenhower (5-Eb), Sarah Palin (7-Ix), and Condoleezza Rice (11-Edznab).
Important Note: Milton Wiliam Cooper is 13-Lamat. Forever.
I’m checking out this theory, so I might be wrong. At any rate, you’ll find plenty of that type of consciousness down the road on the 1-Kan trecena, I’m sure. We’ve already encountered Yasser Arafat, Agent Smith, Malcolm X, Bugsy Siegel, and we’re about to encounter Norman Schwarzkopf, Jr.
Maybe I’m just trying to make a point since I’m an 8-Lamat and I served for 5 years in the Navy. I had several friends in my crew who are Lamats, who stayed on for a career. I loved my crew and Service. I got discharged as a Petty Officer at the tender age of 23.
All I’m at liberty to share with you is that it was a mix of Secret and Service.
Oh, and back on the military stuff, check out this following clip from one of my all-times favorite movie Little Miss Sunshine. In this movie, Paul Dano (also 5-Lamat) plays Dwayne, a teenager who reads Nietzsche and took a vow of silence until such time that he can become a Pilot in the Military. In this scene he realizes that he can’t become a Pilot, like he wanted to:

Coming up next:
Jesse Owens WINS the 100 M dash in front of the entire 3rd Reich.
Robert Downey Jr. plays in a Henry Goodman Broadway hit, based on the biography of Jazz Bass-man Gary Peacock.
Plácido Domingo sings Classics by Josef Zawinul. The camera pans as Salman Rushdie is Fast Asleep.
Leslie Nielsen, Adam Sandler, Peter Coyote, Cary Grant, and Susan Sarandon come to realize that all of them were born on the same Tzolkin date.
And, for the late night, Rip Torn joins his Drama School master Lee Strasberg and go Live on National TV to talk with Johnny Carson (who is 5-Kan, so he’s out of sight right now, on the flip-side).
My firm advise right now is to take a noon-nap not to miss the late-night.
