Jose Arguelles, Noted 2012 Proponent, Passes

Prominent New Age writer Jose Arguelles, a noted proponent of the 2012 theory, passed away on March 23 at the age of 72. Arguelles came to prominence in the 1980s with the book The Mayan Code, which combined the I Ching and Mayan Calendar to create a completely new way of measuring time which he named the Dreamspell Calendar. Arguelles was also a very visible and prominent leader within the New Age community, and was instrumental in organizing both the first Whole Earth Festival in 1970 and the Harmonic Convergence in 1987. He will likely be most remembered as one of the most vocal promoters of the idea that the date December 21, 2012 will mark a profound change in human consciousness and civilization. Though he was not the first to promote the subject (the psychedelics researcher Terence McKenna had been advancing the 2012 theory in his books since the 1970s), nor the most famous (a whole glut of 2012 promoters have recently hogged the limelight in the rush up to the date itself), Arguelles was a singularly respected voice within the New Age community, a true statesman.

DBKP reports:

During the March 24th Coast to Coast Show host George Noory announced José Argüelles had died after a ‘very short illness’. According to Argüelles’ Foundation of Law of Time website, Argüelles ascended on Kin 89, Red Spectral Moon (March 23). José Argüelles was 72.

Author of The Mayan Factor, Earth Ascending, Surfers of the Zuvuya, The Arcturus Probe and Time and the Technosphere: The Law of Time in Human Affairs, José Argüelles ‘pursued a lifelong investigation of the mathematics and prophecies associated with the Mayan calendar.’

According to an email, ‘Valum Votan/Jose Arguelles departed this Planet on Solar Moon 17 (March 23), Red Spectral Moon, at 6:10 a.m (the exact same time that he was born in 1939 in the Red Spectral Moon year).’

Our condolences to his survivors and many fans.
