The TZOLKIN represents the bare bones essentials of the radiant energy of the universe or Light Code which is complementary to the Genetic Code, which is represented by the I Ching. While the I Ching is a Genetic Constant, the Tzolkin is the Galactic Constant with its thirteen numbers, twenty symbols and four directional positions. While the combinations of the thirteen numbers and twenty positions or symbols produce the 260 units comprising the entire matrix, the 52 (13 X 4) directional position possibilities are reflected in the pattern unifying the matrix. This is the 52 positions with the black background.

If you look at this pattern you will see that it comprises 26 units on the right side of the central, seventh or Mystic column, and 26 units on the left side of that column, for a total of 52 units. This pattern is “the primary resonant structure common to all processes and systems. It is the visible form of the cosmic code.” This pattern is called “The Loom of Maya”. The seventh, Mystic column is the only one devoid of this pattern because it is the “Unmirrored”, which mirrors all. But there will be more on this Loom of Maya later.

Because the Harmonic Module above is a Hologram, it can also be overlayed with many different aspects. For example the 260 Kin or days can be divided into FOUR seasons of 65 days. This will indicate the Directional Guardians for the Beam (Roadway) Lenses, which are as follows:
CHICCHAN for the East (LIKIN)
OC for the North (XAMAN)
MEN for the West (CHIKIN)
AHAU for the South (NOHOL)
