27 days until the next Day of the Magic Turtle ;-)

According to the Mayan calendar Tzolkin, 24th April 2017 is a day with the Solar Seal BLUE MONKEY and with Tone 10, this is Kin 231 in Tzolkin.

The Solar Seal
BLUE MONKEY has following quaities: Play, Magic, Illusion.
24th April 2017 is also a day of the 10th Moon (the 10th Lunar month) with Tone 10 according to the 13-Moon calendar. 

On 24th April 2017 the Tone of the day coincides with the Tone of the Lunar month. Such a day is called Day of the Magic Turtle. On such a day the energy of the Tone is doubled.

So 24th April 2017 is a special Day of Magic: Blue Monkey is the Energy of Magic plus it is a Day of the Magic Turtle :-)! 

On the periphery of the formation are depicted 27 circles. This is exactly the number of the days until another Day of the Magic Turtle: 21st May 2017.
21st May 2017 is a day with the Solar Seal White Mirror and with Tone 11, this is Kin 258 in Tzolkin.
21st May 2017 is a day of the 11th Moon (the 11th Lunar month) with Tone 11.
So on this day we have Tone 11 as Tone of the day and Tone of the Lunar month, this is again a Day of the Magic Turtle.

And the difference between the two dates is:

Kin 258 – Kin 231 = 27

Plus, the semicircles on the periphery of the formation resemble the figures on the periphery of a turtle ;-). 

Heartfelt thanks to the authors of this wonderful formation and to the photographers of www.cropcircleconnector.com !!

This simple crop circle describes the dispersion of gas from a comet after it enters the earth's atmosphere and strikes. The gas, the small rings, spreads over the hemisphere of the strike and continues on, perhaps to the entire planet, as  suggested by only showing about a half of each circle. Small solid circles would denote solid particles such as dust. These small rings are found in a number of prior crop circles, most notably in  T583 (dated September 3, 1996), of the Andrews Catalog, where they indicate the chemical formulas of poisonous gas molecules.

T583 can be found on page 66 of my free ebook, which is downloaded at theheckhypothesis.com/downloads (top of the page).

Crop Circles-UFO's-Ancient Mysteries-Scientific Speculations

Stonehenge, Seahenge, and the 27-day sidereal cycle of our Moon: of course people living long ago in the British Isles would have figured out to how keep track of natural cycles in the Earth’s sky of our Moon, Sun and stars, while using “Sun-Moon calendars” built simply from from stones, chalk pits or wooden posts!   

A new crop picture at Oliver’s Castle shows a “ring” of 27 “small circles”, which might be interpreted as the “large ring” of a 27-hole, megalithic “Sun-Moon calendar”. Each “hole” in such a “calendar” could be occupied by either (or both) of two movable markers (say tall sticks) which would represent our “Sun” or “Moon”.  

Starting on any full Moon, the “Moon marker” from this “calendar” could be moved forward by one hole per day. After 27 days, it will turn by one revolution of the “large ring”, and lie close to 27.32 days for the known (and easily visible) orbital motion of our Moon, relative to background stars. Once every three lunar phase cycles, we can “skip” 1 day of moving the “Moon marker” forward. Then (3 x 27) + 1 = 82 days by our simple calendar will match (3 x 27.32) = 81.96 days as the true and exact length of time, for three star-centred or “sidereal” lunar months.  

Can we use these same “27 holes”, arranged in the shape of a “large ring”, to represent the combined motions of our Moon and Earth, as they move in two different orbits around the Sun? A full solar year equals 365.24 days, while 1/27 of a solar year equals 13.5 days. If we move our “Sun marker” ahead by one hole every 13.5 days (as 13 days alternating with 14 days), that will match the much faster motion of one hole ahead per day for our “Moon marker”. 

After 27 days, our “Moon marker” will have gone around the “large ring” by one full turn of 27 holes, while our “Sun marker” will have gone ahead by just two holes. After 29 days, our “Moon marker” will have gone around the ring by one full turn of 27 holes, plus another two holes, while our “Sun marker” will have gone ahead by just two holes, and a little bit more as (2 / 13.5) = 0.15 of its distance to the third hole.  

After 29.5 days, our “Moon marker” should intersect with our “Sun marker” precisely, in order to match 29.53 days for the known monthly phase cycle or “synodic” period of our Moon, relative to the Sun rather than to background stars. This alignment in our simplest 27-hole calendar would take place after 29.16 days. So our simplest 27-hole calendar shows an error of about 0.37 days per lunar month, for predicting when the next new Moon or full Moon will take place. After three lunar months, this error would be (3 x 29.53) = 88.59 days for a true date, versus (3 x 29.16) = 87.48 days for a calculated date, while using our simplest “calendar”.  

Yet if we skip moving the “Moon marker” forward by 1 day in every three lunar months, as suggested above, then our 27-hole calendar will require a slighter longer (87.48 + 1) = 88.48 days to predict three lunar phase cycles. The remaining error will be only 88.59 true days. versus 88.48 calculated days, or 0.11 day in three lunar months, amounting to a tolerable 0.5 day per solar year. Once every two solar years, we could skip moving the “Moon marker” again by one day. Also by adding another movable “node marker”, as suggested by astronomer Fred Hoyle, early man could also have used this simple calendar to accurately predict solar or lunar eclipses.  

Two  “Seahenge” wooden circles were built in England around 2000 BC, with 55 wooden posts arranged in the shape of a large ring. Here 55 = 2 x 27.5, which nearly matches the 27.32 days required for a “sidereal” monthly cycle of our Moon (see the-number-56-may-not-be-arbitrary or Seahenge-sister-Second-timber-circle-uncovered-Norwich-coast-burial-mound-Bronze-Age-leaders). At Stonehenge around the same time, someone built a large ring from 56 “Aubrey holes”. Here 56 = 2 x 28, which might suggest a related 28-hole “Sun-Moon calendar” (see stonehenge eclipses).  

Modern archaeologists seem, for the most part, to be totally oblivious to what would have been a pressing need in early human societies on Earth to track cycles of the Moon, Sun, stars and eclipses, and thereby keep an accurate track of long periods of time through many centuries. The people who lived then were no less intelligent, in a genetic sense, than the professional astronomers who work for NASA or other institutions today. Of course they could have figured it out!

Proportions of the smaller geometries are the same as found in the first crop circle this year. It's a pretty common fractal proportion. The subject of the year is more about quality than quantity.
