“How many a town We destroyed while it was iniquitous, so it is fallen down upon its roofs; and (how many) a deserted well and palace raised high! Have they not traveled in the land so that they should have hearts with which to understand, or ears with which to hear? For surely it is not the eyes that are blind, but blind are the hearts which are in the breasts.” Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verses 45-46

The Honorable Elijah Muhammad has laid the foundation of a New World Order by giving us the keys to the mastery of a New World of thought. He was taught by One Mighty in Power and in Truth, Master W. Fard Muhammad. The Master met with the Honorable Elijah Muhammad and gave him the keys to the mastery of God and self, night and day for three and a half years. In turn, he has taught us the same. This new knowledge or school of thought is no longer that which is pertaining to the prophets and what they prophesied, but it is the knowledge and science of the thinking of gods.

When the 12 Leaders (God Scientists) met at the Root of Civilization, at the Holy City Mecca, where knowledge of the Original Man first started, they determined in council that we, the Lost-Found Nation and people (ex-Slaves of America and members of the Tribe of Shabazz), who were lost from our own, must be returned to our original land and people so they sent us a Messenger to teach us a thorough knowledge of our own by teaching us the root knowledge of the Divine Creation.


With this Supreme Wisdom, we can no longer stand on the platform of the Old World Knowledge base. Every civilization we study on our planet holds a vital key to the knowledge of the Original man and people. We are taught this knowledge in a mathematical way, which is the root knowledge of creation itself originating from zero or nothing until we calculate on something. In the beginning, teaches the Honorable Elijah Muhammad, there were 13 Tribes and we once wrote our history to last every 35,000 years before the making of the moon. It was in the making of the moon when our whole solar system was altered through the powerful explosion that took place separating us from this part that we now call earth. We fell from our original pocket 36,000 miles in a sudden downward thrust. The part we call moon went upwards 12 miles high and became Earth’s present satellite. Before that happened, the Honorable Elijah Muhammad teaches us that the planet Mars served as our moon.

In the making of the moon, one of the 13 Tribes got lost and we now calculate on the measurements of 12 to write our histories. It is this circle of 12 Scientists that have kept the secret of God’s Origin as a mystery until today. This Secret Knowledge has lasted for trillions of years until the Coming of The Great Mahdi Who has broken through the Veil of Silence and the Secret of God is now being made known to the public for the first time.

We may ask, what does this knowledge have to do with the Olmecs and the mathematical system of calculation that has been applied to the sophisticated calendric system of the Mayan Calendar and earlier calendars followed by all Indigenous people of Mexico and Mesoamerica? Quite a bit as we will see.

Once the Honorable Elijah Muhammad questioned several of us who were in his presence at the dinner hour what we thought was the significance of these numbers in the making of the moon. In the first observation, the number 12 becomes the base of our calculations based on 12 inches in the ruler and represents the 12 Major Scientists. The number 36 is the square of six and its cube is 216 (6x6x6=216). When adding a zero to this number (2,160) equals the diameter of the moon. The difference between 12 and 36 is 24, which represents the 24 Scientists who are used to calculate our prophetic histories written in cycles of 25,000-year periods.

Twenty-three of those Scientists actually do the writing and one acts as the judge (the 24th) over those writings. When the moon was separated from this part now called Earth, we were tilted on our axis, pole to pole measuring 23 and one half degrees at either end. This represents the work of the 23 Scientists with the 24th being the one judge overall. The writing of these histories are renewed every 25,000 years because there is a major shift of the poles at that time bringing about earth changes and altered climatic conditions on our planet and cataclysmic destructions such as flooding, volcanic eruptions, severe snow and ice conditions and seismic activities such as earthquakes. At this time in our history, we are beginning to experience these conditions today in what has been termed “Global Warming.”

The moon actually makes 13 revolutions around our planet, but we calculate only on the number 12 months in a year. We leave vacant or missing the calculations of 13 months. This is a sign of one of the 13 Tribes that got lost in the making of the moon. There is a space, however, in our present zodiac that could include a 13th Constellation. In the ancient Egyptian calendar, this 13th Constellation is recorded as Imhotep, the Serpent Holder, who was a physician and healer and architectural builder of the first step pyramid located at Zakarah, constructed for King Zoser near the Gizeh Plateau in Cairo, Egypt.

Returning our thoughts to Mesoamerica, Mexico and the phenomenal presence and appearance of the original Olmecs bearing features and characteristics that are undeniably Black, we discover that the mathematical system they employed in calculations of the calendar system is based on these sacred numbers, 13 (moon cycles) and 20 (0 to 19) representing solar seals that produced the most perfect calendar system in existence today known as the Mayan Calendar.

So who are the Olmecs? They are members of the Original man and people who preserved some of the lost wisdom of our forefathers and former civilizations. Their mammoth heads were found buried in the earth in the Western Hemisphere and are now being unearthed and discovered by anthropologists, archeologists and historians raising the question: Who is the Original Man?

We, too, the Lost and Found members of the Tribe of Shabazz, were also found buried in the West in the mud of civilization. Remember the story of the dead architects of God’s temple that was raised from the dead (in Masonic symbolism) is now being raised to life after thousands and millions and even trillions of years from the remote past.

“And they ask thee to hasten on the chastisement, and Allah by no means fails in His promise. And surely a day with thy Lord is as a thousand years of what you reckon. And how many a town to which I gave respite while it was unjust, then I seized it! And to me is the return.” –Holy Qur’an, Surah 22, verses 47-48
