These are 2 dates in the Mayan Calendar. The first date is today, April 8, 2009 and the second is my birthdate. You can figure that one out! When converted to our numeric display version of dates i.e. 04.08.09 for example, my birthdate is 220.127.116.11.5. I am not sure what the order is in these numbers, because they were done on a conversion program at a website on the Mayan Calendar. Today's date is 18.104.22.168.7.
You will note the dates have five numbers and in Mayan (as far as I can figure) the numeric system is base 5. The flutes or ocarina type instruments they played were made with 5 holes. The horns pictured in there glyphs had flaired bells and no indication of changing pitch devices so they probably played the partials. Percussion was drums and would sticks. I know... I couldn't sleep last night and I was surfing the net and this little inspiration struck me.
So with all that in mind go back a couple thousand years and see what this conjures up for you______
