Snakes & Ladders: Part 1 – King Pakal’s Sacred Vendetta Inscribed on the Stairway to Heaven

The Archetypal Maya rivalry between Pakal’s Lineage of Baakal, associated with the White Heron, and the archenemy Lineage of Kaan, associated with the Serpent.

The official INAH Mexico has recently announced the results of a new epigraphic study of the Maya glyphs inscribed on the Hieroglyphic Stairway of the Palace of Lakamha’ (Palenque, Chiapas). This new reading goes deeper into the narrative of the sacred wars led by Pakal the Great against the Snake Kingdom (Kaan Kingdom), the archenemy of his sacred lineage who, in the past, not only destroyed the inscriptions and monuments of Palenque but also assassinated most of the royal line. It is now known that Pakal had a primal vendetta against the Snake bloodline, the reason why he not only captured and sacrificed his rivals, but he also desecrated the skeletal remains of the ones who attacked his city even before he was born.

In this all new Tortuga 13:20 Series, Galactic Maya researchers Gar Magusa and Itzadragon unearth and dissect some of the deepest enigmas of the Palenque Maya. Legendary events that Pakal the Great himself deemed important enough to be inscribed in stone, once again see the light.

Tortuga 13:20 are proud to be part of this unveiling, because “Reconstructing the Planet Art Legacy” does not only apply to the cultural movement initiated by the visionary work of Jose and Lloydine Argüelles. The great reconstruction extends deep into the original source of this wisdom, which is anchored in the Maya Myth of Lakamha’ (Palenque). Both authors tirelessly researched and studied the inscriptions and mythic history, transcribing and transcreating its essence into the prophetic dispensation of the Dreamspell and Telektonon. We must however understand, that at their point in the timeline, not everything about the inscribed history of Palenque had been completely deciphered.

Considering the rapid development of the Maya Epigraphy, the study of these hieroglyphs is a key to accurately understand the Maya Transmission, a historical truth which has always been inscribed. As such, we find ourselves in a unique position, because the story is still unfolding. We are witnessing in realtime the unravelling of new chapters in this enigmatic narrative.

Our purpose through this ongoing work is to Unify the Realtime with the Dreamtime. The Ancient with the Future. The Conscious with the Unconscious. Because only by bringing these streams together, can we truly understand and discern the narrative that is unfolding and that which we are being told.

This research focuses on the new decipherments of Pakal’s inscriptions on the Hieroglyphic Stairway at the House C, originally named “U Naah Chan” (“House of the First Heaven”) and situated within the Palace of Lakamha’ (Palenque). This is the story of the primal archetypal rivalry between Pakal’s lineage of Baakal, associated with the White Heron, and the archenemy lineage of Kaan, associated with the Serpent.
