Thankyou to Law of Time to repost this here
The below words are written by Jose Arguelles/Valum Votan. I feel the need to repost here to clarify the difference between the Long Count anchored in Guatemala, and the Dreamspell anchored in Palenque, Mexico. The following is from the Law of Time website (link at the end) to clarify these two systems, their similarities and their differences.
By Valum Votan/Jose Arguelles
“The Dreamspell is a description of the synchronic order. The Long Count is the sacred count of days. Both use the same harmonic standard – the Tzolkin or Harmonic Module. For Dreamspell, the Harmonic Module is an absolute fourth-dimensional referencing matrix and synchronic gauge. For the Long Count, it is an ever-recurring 260-day count beginning at 4 Ahau, 8 Cumhu August 13 BC 3113 (3114), and which establishes endless cycles of vinals, tuns, katuns, and baktuns.
The Dreamspell is a new dispensation. Its count is calibrated to 8 Wizard, July 26, 1987. It utilizes the reformed 13 moon 28 + 1 day Tun Uk and Haab 365-day counts as its measure. Since its purpose is twofold – to displace the artificial and irregular Gregorian calendar, and to establish the synchronic order and the Law of Time as a new basis of knowledge and the reformulation of the human mind as a purely fourth dimensional knowing. It operates in perfect 52-year solar-galactic cycles. It does not recognize leap day and so maintains the perfection of the synchronic order – a purely fourth- dimensional order in which the irregularity of leap day does not occur. As long as the Gregorian calendar is still in use as a point of reference, leap day, February 29, is counted as 0.0 Hunab Ku.
When the human is harmonized in the supermental order of the Law of Time, and the Gregorian calendar is no longer known or recognized, we will be able to telepathically stabilize the Earth’s rotation at a perfect 365 days and the leap day will be eliminated.
There is no conflict between Dreamspell and the Long Count. They are merely two different standards that serve two different purposes, both operating with different applications of the same system. The synchronic order harmonizes all timing systems, including the Long Count, all lunar calendars, etc. Currently, between February 29, 2004 and February 28, 2008, the difference between the Dreamspell and the Long Count is 49 days. Between 2008 and 2012, the difference will be 48 days, and after February 29, 2012, it will be 47 days. Hence today, Kin 196 Dreamspell, is Kin 147 Long Count. (Northern) Winter solstice 2012 will be Kin 207 Dreamspell and Kin 160 Long Count.
People who believe that there is a conflict between the two systems are still immersed in dualism and are fixated on being right. The future spiritual-mental evolution depends on holding multiple views simultaneously, of seeing the inherent harmony in all forms of order whatsoever, and of experiencing non-dual unification of self and other.
