The Calleman Interpretation of the Mayan Calendar

Intro | Calleman Matrix | Alternative Dates

Intro

Maybe you've seen the Calleman Matrix elsewhere? Here is a quick introduction to the ideas that Carl Johan Calleman developed from the Mayan calendar. See Calleman's website for bulletins and commentary, or read his books (or those by Barbara Hand Clow) for more in-depth details if you need them.

This is what Calleman claims, as I understand it:

The evolution through the underworlds proceeds as follows (as a rough illustration). Each involves the creation of an environment, and the exploration of the possibilities of that environment:

Cellular First cells develop from matter Exploring the world from the point of view of a cell, and its interaction with other cells
Mammalian First animals develop from cells Exploring the world from the point of view of an animal, and its interaction with other animals
Familial First primates develop Exploring the world from the point of view of a primate, and its interaction with other primates
Tribal First humans develop Exploring the world from the point of view of a tribal human, and its interaction with other humans
Regional Spoken language and regional organization Exploring the world of a regional society, and the interactions within a society, and amongst societies
National Written language and national organization Exploring the world of national groups, and the interactions within a nation, and amongst nations
Planetary Development of science and machines Exploring the world of scientific knowledge and the physical possibilities available through machines
Galactic Development of cyberspace/internet Exploring the world of instant global communications and virtual realities
Universal ??? ???

Note that all of these underworlds overlap. We are in the final heaven of most of these underworlds, so there are still people living in tribal societies, still people working through regional or national issues, at the same time that other individuals and groups are exploring the possibilities of cyberspace. All the previous underworlds continue right up to the end-date.

It is not clear yet what might be developed during the final underworld. What kind of evolution might build upon and go beyond the instant global communications and the world of cyberspace that we've been adjusting to for the last 12 years? Just like we couldn't imagine the details and implications of what the internet might have brought 12 years ago (e.g. twitter/myspace, or global financial markets), so it seems to be impossible for us to imagine the details of what the final underworld might bring. We could speculate that it might mean psychic functioning, but equally well it could be something much more unexpected. In any case, we don't have long to wait!

On a personal level, the importance of the Calleman Matrix is 'catching the wave' as it happens. If you catch the wave, you get the benefit of the evolution provided by that wave. On the other hand, maybe you are quite happy to be a tribal member, or a horse, or an amoeba. If so, no problem. But still, the wave provided by the underworld is there if you want to ride it, and very many of us are living right in the middle of it, feeling all of its effects.

Calleman Matrix

Here is the full Calleman Matrix. I've put the shortest underworlds first, because those are the most interesting to us right now, as we're living through them. Note that this uses 18-day heavens for the Universal, which differs from other charts you might have seen (see note below):

Notes:

Alternative Dates (NOW DEPRECATED)

Calleman's published chart works on the basis that each heaven of the Universal underworld is 20 days long (following a Tzolkin count). But this breaks the divide-by-twenty rule, because the Galactic has 360 days for each heaven, which would make each Universal heaven 18 days long. Calleman touched on this point in his book, deciding provisionally on 20 days there, but changed his mind in more recent analysis. It seems that the 20-day cycle is still relevant, but much less important than the 18-day heaven cycle. For completeness, the cycle based on 20-day heavens is shown below:
