#014 26.000 light-years in words

Today, we restart our cycle with the understanding that in order to go forward we spin around the center. This is how we are able to reach the next levels. In a self-centered spiral, how time and the temporal field behave. As a Torus, from the center, we can reach any point.

#014 26.000 light-years in words

Writing more or less 2000 words every day during this first cycle, in 13 days I wrote – and you read – 26.0000 words or about 100 pages of a book. At least a word to each of the light years between us and the center of our galaxy. Are you ready to continue spinning with me, traveler? I invite you to review with me everything we had learned/will learn not one day at a time but all at once. Suspend all thought and enter with me the infinite enchantment by which the dimensions are all together. Our mind is the universe itself. This is how we start our practice navigating through pasts and futures.

#000 From the center, galactic source

What will happen is already happening. I am feeling like closing a cycle and starting a fresh new one. I want to tell you more about temporalities, Brazil, Latin America, and the perspectives of someone coming from the global south, experimenting with other possibilities of existence, and trying to find where are my next places to be in Europe. I also want to tell you more about how that connects with the yellow cosmic sun in our galactic center. Suddenly, a massive celestial body almost 26.000 light-years far from what we call here and now was my warmest place. To the Tzolk'in, the black hole at the center of our galaxy is Kin 260, the farthest point from Kin 1, but also the closest.
#000 From the center, galactic source
While seeing that first, blurred, image of the center of our galaxy, I cried. Suddenly, a massive celestial body almost 26.000 light-years far from what we call here and now was my warmest place.


#001 This is the count of time from now on

What is my purpose?

Time Sets. Packages of raw, unprocessed data, that we – artists, creators, makers, researchers, and strategists – download from the field in collective opportunities that we feel synchronized not only with the actual ideas of the world that already is but with the potential ideas of a world to come, a world becoming. From my research about social change since 2013 to my recent projects on temporal literacy in 2020 and 2021, this is a concept I believe we should talk about more often from now on, in the long term this decade, and beyond.
#001 This is the count of time from now on
When everyone comes back home, there is this common feeling of synchronization with a new set of ideas. We all got a collective update and now we know a new set of words, concepts, behaviors, and agreements... I call that a time set. A bundle of expressions and manifestations of our time.

#002 Contratempo

What is my challenge?

A setback. It is an event that delays your progress or reverses some of the progress that you have made. Do you know the feeling? Sooner we start a new individual or collective movement it feels that real life comes with a challenge. The setback, the challenge, is an invitation to you "do you". To you perform being you. And, from within, we also can be the observer of this version being performed. You are the great spirit you've ben talking with! From this two versions of you dialoguing, from this polarity you can experiment, explore, and experience the necessary setps, that will allow you to become who you need to become.

#003 Dreams of Abundance

How can I best serve?

It is the end of the single narrative. We need to relearn to dream not only with ourselves but with every living being.  To dream is a powerful tool to imagine desirable futures. An apparatus to take people out of their centers, to "rewild" our hearts. We are in the middle of stories. An interregnum. The future will be the entanglement between prisms of two worlds that are already happening right now. To be contemporary is to have a relationship with time that adheres to it through a disjunction and an anachronism.  Now we struggle with the inadequacy of our grammar: temporal awareness demands new codes, behaviors, processes, systems, and collective agreements. Let’s seek in ancestral and emerging narratives other possibilities for our existence?
#003 Dreams of Abundance
Once I had a dream. A really tall creature with a skin that looked like the darkness of the universe, full of bright stars, arrived and explained the next steps in the present would not be for those who are already here. “To whom, then?” I remember to ask. “Them,”, the entity said.

#004 More than just fortuitous events

What is the form my service will take?

Seeds are dreams. Dreams of abundance for the future. We are learning to create our own existence. Autopoiesis. We believe is a fortuitous event, happening by chance. But, in fact, is a series of fortunate events. We just do not fully understand the cosmic dance yet. To change the zeitgeist – the spirit of our time – we must change the zeitgeber – the reference we use to guide ourselves. Clocks are colonial locks. Time isn't money, time is a cosmic dance, our connection with the cosmos. Time is art. Questioning the limited mindset coming with the Gregorian calendar and its linear temporality in our minds and in our societies is our next step. To decolonize time we must start experimenting with other temporalities through a decolonial approach.

#005 Synchronic notes of survival in the world

How can I best empower myself?

We need to rethink time itself. Going back in time is not the simple answer to the current crisis. What other relationships with time, other temporalities, can we co-create and experiment from here? To feel what our reality was, what it is being, and what it can be. An invitation to deep dive into our relationship with the diversity of temporalities of our planet.

#006 Beginnings, middles, and beginnings

How can I extend my equality to others?

We live many deaths during our life. To respect your rhythm is an invitation to self-acceptance and self-love with your present self. Sometimes we can't do it all or have it all. To listen to our bodies and respect our pace is also a way to believe that there is more to come and we should keep leaving our process. Traveling our travel. Death is just another beginning. It is transformation. And, since time is the driver of change, transformation also can set the rhythm. To the Tzolkin, Death is not the end, but the opportunity for a new beginning. The idea of an ending comes from linear time. In a spiral time, we are always starting a new round, just at a different level of the spiral, our journey.

#007 Resonance, our relationship with others

How can I attune my service to others?

Technology is not the center of our discussion. When talking about future, innovation, impermanence, uncertainty, change, and time, we are talking about people. It is like the layers of paint that we use on reality but the substance itself is deep there. Of course, we can look to both levels – or directions, as you probably learned in the linear metaphor. That's why I am always mentioning in lectures that some of the best futurists of our time are history professors (like Yuval Harari and his trilogy of past, future, and present issues), and timekeepers (like indigenous leaders I mentioned previously and their ancestral wisdom). When we are so focused to understand what technology will look like in 5 to 50 years in the future we are not noticing the opportunity to also learn from the 5.000 to 5 billion years of deep time history that brought us here. I am diverging the conversation from future to time and temporality.

#008 Temporalities don't need to be rescued but honored

Do I live what I believe?

Temporality is a state of our existence in time or the way we relate to time. To be related is to be in a relationship with. How is your relationship with time? We live an inadequacy of grammar about our time. There are as many temporalities as grains in the sand. It is something pluriversal, constituted of the sum of all the events interacting with each other. We see individual habits and behaviors as language assets. They are shaping, influencing, and being influenced by collective agreements that are social, cultural, political, economic, ecological, religious, philosophical, ethical, aesthetic, and ontological. The African concept of Time is key to our understanding of existence: I'm going-back-and-forth around the center of life forces. I am because I have been and re-been before, so that I will be and re-be again.

#009 Seeking internal waters

How do I attain my purpose?

Something curious is that as we don't know much about the waters of our planet – we have a terrestrial bias, as I learned with my friends from Billion Seconds Institute in a recent online session – we also are in uncharted waters about our emotions as the language of our feelings. Everything to say, on Earth, the moon cycles are an important part of our understanding of time. And so its interrelation with the sun. Lunar and Solar cycles are the main steps of the development of calendrical systems. Now we are adding here the perspective of considering other stars and the galaxy itself.

#010 Reality as a wave function

How do I perfect what I do?

None of these stories are new. They move like waves and communicate through echoes that resonate with each other. And yet it is in their purpose to be told once more. During the night, hunter-gatherer hominids would gather around the fire to tell them. The fire that cooks the food hunted during the day and brings heat to their bodies is, above all, space for the important ritual of telling stories while watching the stars. Dreaming of a time yet to come They repeat and reflect lived and imagined experiences, filling in the empty spaces about the reality hitherto known and bringing new questions, new empty spaces that expand the observed universe. Among the stars, the empty spaces in the sky that we perceive as dark spots are galaxies so far away that we cannot recover light. They are outside the observed universe to us. In a moment beyond the curve of events we know, the movement of all galaxies will take them so far that observation of the sky will make anyone around here believe that we are alone in the cosmos.

#011 As we believe, so we act. As we act, so we become.

How do I release and let go?

"What do you believe?". Your worldview or cosmoperception is a broad panorama of beliefs, facts, and values. Is a garden you need to cultivate.  These ideas come from whom?" Who are your mentors?". And this garden is planted in us by parents, friends, teachers, books, schools... Also called perspectives, lenses (vista), or wavelengths. From Walter Russel's wondrous text The Universal One, as well as James Lovelock's Gaia Theory and Rupert Sheldrake's A New Science of Life. Weaving biology and mathematics into a unified planetary model and bringing together the work of these thinkers in its wake is what we will start to talk about. All of their ideas are part of what I learned from José Arguelles when I read the Maya Factor.

#012 Who owns your time owns your mind

How can I dedicate myself to all that lives?

Trusting the process and the flow, repeating all of it again the next day. And the next day. This is also my main experience and learning with the previous 260-day spins of the Tzolkin I already lived.  The catchphrase "It's about the journey, not the destination" finally makes sense. We develop a different habit not because we reach the end of one big 260-day cycle, but because we lived many small cycles 13-day cycles on it. Precisely, 20 of them. This is what we are talking about when we refer to the fractal quality of time, the proper to repeat a recipe on any scale. Starting from your daily practice is the best way to develop long-term thinking. Who owns your time owns your mind. Change your time and you change your mind. Change your mind and you change your world.

#013 We are the time travelers we've been waiting for

How can I expand my joy and  love?

How many days can I live with the awareness that everything shall pass? That everything, from a kiss to a rock, is temporary? That we all relate to time, we are all temporary, as a job, as a carreer, as a person, as a gender, as a race, as a society, as a species, as a planet... everything is temporal. In this effort to understand our role in the cosmos, harmonic convergence drew on natural cycles of the cosmos beyond the solar system and named its synchronic convention: there is a 52-year cycle between our sun and the Pleiades. a second, the star Sirius.

And now what?

I want to say thanks to you for reaching until this point. I know is not an easy journey. But you did. We did together. As a collective experiment, I also want to hear from you and read from you. This publication is also part of an independent research. I created this typeform where you can share your thoughts about the cycle. You can sign with your name and contacts or it can be anonymous.

Today, we restart our cycle with the understanding that in order to go forward we spin around the center. This is how we are able to reach the next levels. In a self-centered spiral, how time and the temporal field behave. As a Torus, from the center, we can reach any point. It's called the point zero because it is also the point of every impossibility. Which I prefer to cal the point of every i(n)possibility – i, imaginary numbers n, n= infinite – or the point we can touch and feel the infinite imaginary possibilities. What is timelessness. To feel and to sense every time in the present is the skill of the White Wizard.

Said that, for your self-reflection:

What is my purpose?

Now pick a card, any card. Well, the card you picked is the Magician. Instead of write more for today, I will share the  description of the Wizard archetype written by Margaret Hartwell in a book and creative toolkit I've been used in so many work project:

“Dreams enormous dreams; mysterious power of perception; awe-inspiring intuition and cleverness charisma; highly evolved perspective – Driven to understand the fundamental laws of the universe in order to make drams into reality, the Magician connects to experiences of synchronicity, “flow” and oneness”, with a curiosity about the idea workings of the universe. The Magician associates and aligns with truth to create mutually beneficial outcomes. Using ritual and forces from above and beyond, the Magician manifests ideas into reality, transforming the earthly plane for good. Able to accomplish magic from the inside out, the Magician gets results outside the ordinary rules of live.

Known to be dynamic, influential, charismatic and clever, the Magician has a highly evolved perspective and a ability to view the world through many different lenses. The Magician is a knower of secrets who moves effortless between inner and outer worlds, innately understanding energy dynamics, seasons, the stars and the soul. The ability to detach from the world and retain objective makes the Magician a trusted admission in crisis or chaos situation.

Possessing a fearless grounded in self-preservation the Magician  knows the importance of focusing on the best outcome and believes that all answer can be accessed from inner truths. As a deep thinker, the Magician disciplines the min in service to the co-creation of the reality. The Magician lives beyond the ordinary and is drive to experience the realm of miracles possible within every decision and opportunity.”


Can you already foresee what comes next, since it came before? See you yesterday and tomorrow for more.

With timelessness, enchant, and receptivity,
