The second section is our commemoration stela with the Mayan Long Count date for that day as part of our New Mesoamerican mythology to remember we witnessed that important event.
The third section is the explanation of the Venus transit stela ending on June 6 with mathematical calculations of days since creation using the Thompson-Lounsbury correlation constant of 584,285.
