This 29 September 2019, Day 10 of the Electric Moon of Service, Kin 79 (Magnetic Storm), marks the completion of 32 Tzolkin (Galactic Spins) since the publication of “The Art Planet Chronicles” by Jose Argüelles (Valum Votan) via the Planet Art Network in 1996.
The book was originally written in 1981 but was never published because it was deemed “too cryptic” by publishers for a commercial release. In the absence of an official publisher for the work, Jose wrote and annexed the Afterword Chapter on 13 December 1996 (Kin 79 – Magnetic Storm) and distributed the book for free to all the Planet Art Network.
Within this inspirational chapter, Jose clearly expressed the source of inspiration for the seeding of the Planet Art Network (PAN). We invite you to read his words on the article reblogged so you can understand this for yourself.
In 2014, after both PAN founders Jose and Lloydine Argüelles had passed away, the Foundation of the Law of Time (FLT) released a new edition of this book. Sadly, they chose to erase the Afterword Chapter, thus censoring the original love story of the Planet Art Network.
One must question why would anyone remove such a poignant and relevant chapter of Planet Art History? Is the censorship of Jose’s writing also a censorship towards the Planet Art Network as the original publisher of this book?
One way or another, the removal of this chapter demonstrates a clear pattern that has riddled this movement since the passing of José Valum Votan in 2011 –an agenda of the FLT to erase the name of Lloydine and her Bolon Ik Archetype from the Planet Art History.
This was the fundamental reason behind the creation of Tortuga 13:20 in 2016, an international PAN media with the mission of reconstructing the Planet Art Legacy of Jose and Lloydine Argüelles.
This is also one of the reasons behind the creation of the https://planetart.network initiative for the revival of the Planet Art Network, an autonomous organisation of Time is Art, which cannot be controlled nor censored by the FLT or any other organisation.
We believe it is essential for the Planet Art Network to address this and other important subjects related to the moral principles and integrity of the New Time movement.
