Entry into the new timespace has everything to do with a galactic beam—a higher frequency time wave that is emanated from the galactic core. All of history is condensed within a galactic beam that we are now passing out of. This particular type is a 5,125-year beam; its purpose is to accelerate human activity around the planet. This acceleration is called recorded history. This 5,125-year beam is nested within a 26,000 year beam, which is nested in a 104,000-year beam. These all climax in the Harmonic Convergence of 2012.

The galactic beam information forms the basic premise of The Mayan Factor, particularly the 5,125-year/13 baktun cycle or the wave harmonic of history. According to The Mayan Factor, the (long count) measure of 1,872,000 days, 13 baktuns, 260 katuns, 5,125 years 5200 tuns, is actually the measure of a particular synchronization beam. This Great Cycle is the measurement of this planetary passage through a time beam that is 5,125 years wide from August 13, 3113 BC to December 21, 2012.
