GFC was initially conceived in 2005, and was intended as a fore-runner of the 2012 change of 'great cycle' of the Mayan Calendar. For which , indeed, that intent was fulfilled. December 21, 2012 marked the end of an important cycle in the Maya Long Count calendar. This cycle is composed of 13 periods, called baktun, of 144,000 days each. This 13-baktun cycle began on the Long Count calendar date 188.8.131.52.0 4, and spans 5,125.366 years. This, according to Mayan time keepers marks the beginning of the 5th World, which was never an apocalyptic event, but simply a change from one cycle to the next. An opportunity to wake up to our true humaness. (Which has the next 5,125,366 years to flourish).
GFC put a lot of energy into focusing on the ramifications of 'true humaness', and how our 4th world behaviours have fallen short of this. The cycle change has happened, but it remains up to us to overcome the hangover of our dysfunctional human behaviours.
Since 2012, I personally stepped back to observe how change might take place. I also focused on my second passion, writing code (and building this website). I have found huge pleasure in utilising that passion in being the 'provider' for my family and loved one, through gaining employment as a software engineer. This remains a major focus in my life, and this site will also serve that too. However, employment (especially from the Highlands, with long commutes) takes up a huge amount of time and attention. This new build of the site has been slow in reaching a state where I'm happy to put it live. But throughout the time of 'work', I have maintained the front page 'calendrics' as a discipline to my previous interests - A new world of human expression indicated by Mayan Calendrics.
Here it is, (if you're still happy to run flash on your browser - that will be a future development, to re-work this with canvas, or similar), The current 'Days Resonances' on the home page, and my renewed intent to express more regarding all the wonderful opportunities we have to be truly human, and in so doing, move our collective human experience forward with joy and respect for life.
