Dr. José Argüelles, messenger of the new time, born in 1939, received his Ph.D. in Art History and Aesthetics from the University of Chicago in 1969. His distinguished career as an educator began at Princeton University in 1966, and continued for the next 23 years at the University of California, Davis, The Evergreen State College, The NaropaInstitute, San Francisco State University, the San Francisco Institute ofArt, the University of Colorado, Denver, and the Union Graduate School.
His pioneering books, translated into many languages, are the result of his own artistic activity and scientific investigations into whole systems: Mandala (co-author, 1972), Charles Henry and the Formation of a Psychophysical Aesthetic (1972), The Transformative Vision (1975, 1992), The Feminine Spaciousas the Sky (co-author, 1977), Earth Ascending: An Illustrated Treatise onthe Law Governing Whole Systems (1984, 1988, 1996), The Mayan Factor (1987), Surfers of the Zuvuya (1988), The Call of Pacal Votan, Time is the Fourth Dimension (1996), and The Arcturus Probe, Tales and Reports of an Ongoing Investigation (1996).
As one of the original founders of Earth Day (First Whole Earth Festival, Davis, California, 1970), Argüelles is a lifelong activist for peaceand the planetary transformation of consciousness. With his wife and partner, Lloydine, they founded the Planet Art Network (1983), promoting the revival of the Nicholas Roerich Peace Pact and Banner of Peace (1935). Working with prophetic information received from Tony Shearer in 1970, Argüelles distilled his lifelong study of the mathematics and prophecies of the Mayan Calendar into the Harmonic Convergence, August 16-17, 1987, global meditation and planetary peace event.
Following his unraveling of the Mayan calendar code in his international bestseller, The Mayan Factor (1987), with Lloydine, he continued his scientific and mathematical investigation of the codes underlying the Mayan calendar system of ancient Central America. The result of their joint research was the discovery of the Law of Time, based on defining the 12:60 and 13:20 timing frequencies, and the production of tools and proofs of the mathematics of fourth-dimensional time: The Thirteen Moon Calendar (1990) and Thirteen Moons in Motion (1992); Dreamspell: the Journey of Timeship Earth 2013 (1991); Telektonon (1994); The Thirteen Moon Calendar Change Peace Plan (1995); The 260 Postulates of the Dynamics of Time (1996); The 20 Tablets of the Law of Time (1997); and the 7:7::7:7 Telektonon Revelation (1998).
To implement the discovery of the Law of Time, the Arguelles’ founded the World Thirteen Moon Calendar Change Peace Movement (1993) to whose cause the Argüelles’ have both devoted their lives. As Planetary Peace pilgrims they have delivered their message around the world, including the Vatican and the United Nations. They have convened: the First Planetary Congress of Biospheric Rights (Brazil, 1996), the Four Corners Boundary Dissolving Ceremony (USA, 1996); the First World Peace (Mexico, 1996); the World Congress on the Law of Time (Japan, 1997); the First Gathering of Peace for the Universal Religion (Italy, 1998); and this summer, The World Summit on Peace and Time (Costa Rica, 1999).
