This book is unique and somewhat difficult to explain. The premise is quite unusual. It has to do with the two core principles of Mayan Time Philosophy, their relationship to Jaloj Kexoj (a dual-principle paradigm of the modern Tzutujil Maya) and the square-root principles of Egyptian sacred geometry. If you're still with me after that, the subtitle of this 130-page book is: "The Dual Principle Core Paradigm of Mayan Time Philosophy and its Conceptual Parallel in Old World Thought." Despite the potentially labyrinthine nature of this multi-faceted book, I think it's rather well presented. I treat the thesis very seriously. In my own visionary work with the Sacred Calendar, I concluded that the core of its mathematical and philosophical properties could be reduced to an interplay of two principles: PHI (that is, the Golden Mean) and "64" (the principle of binary or exponential duplication). Thus: PHI-64, the "dual-principle core paradigm." It was somewhat of a shock when I met Martín Prechtel in 1993 and read his academic study which described the dual-principle paradigm of the modern Tzutujil Indians of Guatemala called "Jaloj Kexoj." The parallel of meaning was astounding. Here's the Table of Contents:
