  # Relationship of the Golden Mean to the Mayan 5th Sun

The Mayan Fifth Sun is 5125 years long. It began in 3113 B.C (not 3114 as some say) and will end in 2012. The starting point of the Gregorian calendar that divides this Fifth Sun into two periods (either side of the birth of Christ) is a telling clue to how religion was once guided by harmonic number theory or gematria. If we consider these two periods as factors, as I did in the article The Harmonic Messiah, we find an undeniable relationship to the golden mean.

Actual proportion based on Mayan calendar:
3113 * 2012 = 6,263,356
sqrt ((6263356 ^ (1/4)) / 10) = 1.618332359

This is a number very close to the golden mean, so let’s reverse engineer the exact factors that should produce it.

Calculated proportion using the golden mean:
((((1.618033989*2)-1)^2) * 10)^4 = 6,250,000

The difference, then, between the Mayan 6,263,356 and the golden mean calculated number of 6,250,000 is 13,356.

This difference factors as:

13,356 = 1,113 * 12

But, then something strange happens. When we add 2,000 to each of these factors, we return to our original Mayan numbers as:

3113 * 2012 = 6,263,356

It’s as if the difference between Actual calendar proportion and Calculated golden mean is a nested version of the Actual calendar reduced by 2,000 in each factor. What this surprising result is telling us is the Mayan calendar reflects a natural cycle derived from the golden mean that is amplified or modulated by multiples of 2,000 Earth years. It also suggests that the Gregorian calendar was purposely designed to split the Mayan Sun cycle into two factors of 1113 and 12 with 2,000 added to each factor (perhaps as a counterbalance). But why 2,000 years exactly?

Well, it may be related to a 2,000 year grand cycle of Venus totaling 250 8-year “pentagonal orbits” as viewed from Earth (described here). Subtracting two of these grand cycles of 4,000 years from the Mayan Fifth Sun of 5125 years then leaves 1125 years. This difference creates a very interesting relationship between the Mayan Sun period and the double Venus grand cycle of 4,000 years:

(5125 / 1125) = (4000/ 1125) + 1

Given the importance of Venus to calendar making around the world, it may have been important to the designers of the Gregorian calendar to counterbalance a Venus grand cycle on either side of the birth of Christ as a kind of harmonic twin-pillar entrance into the material world, perhaps seen as emerging through the Fibonacci spiral or vortex that surrounds the golden mean.

Left Pillar | Right Pillar
13 + 1100 + 2000 | 2000 + 12

So we find two pillars with 13 on the left and 12 on the right, plus an additional 1100 years on the left. Oddly enough, when we divide the exact number of years in the Mayan Fifth Sun we again find this 1100 factor:

3113.61 - 2012.97 = 1100.64

This idea occurred to me some months back, which I first introduced in The Harmonic Messiah. But, the fact that the birth of a messiah was predicted at an 11 proportion in the Mayan Fifth Sun (presumably not specifically known in Europe), a long cycle of Venus between 8/ 13/ 3113 and 12/21/2012 apparently has a deeper relationship to the golden mean as a pre-existing constant in the structure of space itself.
