3-Oc [18 October 2011] Rhythmic Love
Born on this day: J. Robert Oppenheimer, Nelson Mandela, Eddie Murphy, Chico Marx
Please note that J. Robert Oppenheimer was born 3-OC (like Nelson Mandela). His son/Baby/Pet Science project, better known as “Little Boy” – was born over the skies of Hiroshima on the following day – 4-Chuen.“Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds.” – J. Robert Oppenheimer quoting the Bhagavad Gita, a Vedic epic circa 3000 BC (early Age of Taurus)
4-Chuen [19 October 2011] Fantasia has no Boundaries
Born on this day: Trey Parker, Tina Turner, David Bowie, Sean Connery, 1st Atomic Bomb (Hiroshima)
5-Eb [20 October 2011] Man’s Stairway
Born on this day: Ron Paul, Dwight D. Eisenhower (34th US President), Fred Alan Wolf, Mike Myers
Senator Dr. Ron Paul is currently running for a presidency candidature as a Republican. He tried many times before, but this time it means something new.
At any rate, according to the Tzolkin, he shares his birthday with former president Eisenhower, another republican. Both leaders share a common take on liberty, the constitution, and the dangers of misplaced power – especially regarding what is known as the Military Industrial Complex.
5-Eb means knowing how to find and follow the One True Path of integrity and purpose, which must always lead upwards and onwards. 5-Eb also means knowing what moves you forward and what keeps you back, as the Buddha once said.
Basically, if you’re planning to vote, you might want to consider this parallel.

Born on this day: Andy García, Meat Loaf, Beck, John McEnroe
7-Ix [22 October 2011] Purposeful Shaman

"... See the SUN LIGHT We're ain't stopping Keep on dancing till the World Ends"
When prejudice ends, so does political correctness.
I know this next video begins with the Arguellian end date of the 2012 winter solstice. The question is – will that affect your own experience of the video? Will you resent it before the music and the party even begin? Will you be in criticize mode where the vulgarity of Art doesn’t stand a chance?
Enjoy this next one purely. Even better – get off your seat!
And, by the way – Kiefer was born 11-Edznab, while his father Donald was born 10-Edznab.
12-Cauac [27 October 2011] Purple Rain
Born on this day: Prince, Miles Davis, Antonín Dvořák, Alban Berg, Steve Martin, Peter Sellers, Kyle MacLachlan, Ewan McGregor
The above quote is a paraphrase by Prince on one of the tenants of Islam (or so I once was told).
Sign o’ The Times defined me back in the late 80’s. Did Price know I’ll be writing and musing on the subject of time at Another Time?
These timely words merit further, undivided attention. So here’s a news flash from the day after Challenger exploded (8-Cib to 9-Caban):
In France a skinny man died of a big disease with a little name By chance his g/f came across a needle and soon she did the same... Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling off a church and killed everyone inside U turn on the Telly and every other story is tellin' U somebody died Sister killed her baby cuz she couldn't afford 2 feed it and we're sending people 2 the Moon
BTW, “Signs of the Times” translates to “Zeitgeist” in German (which is just below the Planetary mid-line).
So, if we take on the quote about truly dying just to be truly happy, we might ax the question – so how should one DIE?
Well, the Maya had a definite answer to this question, and it lies in the sun-sign known as CIMI.
Last time we had Cimi was 12-Cimi, which resonates closely with 12-Cauac (2Day). Cimi is the 6th sun-sign in the sequece beginning in the crocodile’s swap (IMIX). It is the first burner day of Imix, and it teaches bachelors to die into matrimony, and expecting females to die into motherhood.
You die every day.
Peter Sellers (12-Cauac) was a very talented film actor, up until the late 80’s.
In the following clip the future president of the US (Sellers) is being asked by the current one (Jack Warden, 3-Akbal) about taking the Chance and trying to stimulate growth through temporary incentives.
“Temporary incentives” is another key to understanding tomorrow and whatever comes after. It is an ancient tool of government.
It is also what Monsanto is all about.
13-Ahau (28 October 2011) There’s Always the Sun
Born on this day: Ethan Jesse Coen (younger brother of filmaker duo), Ron Howard, Alan Arkin, Nigel Terry
Richie Cunningham (Ron Howard, 13-Ahau) is known for directing the movie Apollo 13.
Alan Arkin (also born 13-Ahau) starred in the movie Little Miss Sunshine, where he played the grandpa who dies.
Another 13-Ahau, Nigel Terry – is an English actor, best known for his depiction of King Arthur in the court of Camelot.
Ethan Jesse Coen – Rock it ON! along with your amazing Mayan twin Joel (born 13-Ben, which is the next 13th stage/Saturday).
Last BTW: the Coen brothers worked with Jeff Bridges on the Big Lebowski, one of their earlier works, where Joel is still credited for directing. The Dude (Jeffery Lebowski as played by Bridges) was born 12-Eb, which is the day before 13-Ben (Joel’s birthday).
The distinguished Mr. Bridges shares his birthday with: Maurice Ravel, Django Reinhardt, Chaim Topol, and Yitzhak Rabin
