This is a designer hoodie for all seasons, in dark chocolate with metallic gold, navy blue, and blue-gray.
The Mayans are responsible for discovering and cultivating chocolate. They believed cacao was given to them by their gods. Obviously, they enjoyed the caffeinated high they received from spiced chocolate beverages in ornate containers. They also used cacao beans as currency to buy food and other goods. In Aztec culture, cacao beans were considered more valuable than gold. There is plenty of evidence to suggest the Maya mixed Cacao with local and traded psychedelic medicines, most predominantly the Psilocybin mushrooms, combining them together into a frothy drink. The addition of Cacao to their psychoactive medicines is purported to have enhanced the psychedelic effects while providing a calming effect.
Hallucinogenic cactus, plants, and mushrooms were used to induce altered states of consciousness in psychonautic journeys, to explore alternate dimensions of consciousness, as well as in healing rituals and religious ceremonies.
This hoodie pattern design features twenty Maya Gods and Shaman cut from the Dresden Codex. The Dresden Codex is an 11th-century Mayan manuscript duplicated from an 8th-century original that predicted the 9th-century collapse of the Mayan civilization.
This hoodie is governed by the Mayan creator God, Itzamna. Itzamna gifted the Maya with sophisticated fractal astronomy, mathematics, writing, and medicine.
How sophisticated were the Maya?
Animism dominated the pre-flood science and technology of human civilization for more than 13,000 years. Animistic cultures built the antediluvian pyramids at Giza, and the megalithic sites of Göbekli Tepe, Machu Picchu, Baalbek, Easter Island, Stonehenge, and many others. It was a global civilization symbolized by the pyramid. Animism continued as the dominant cosmology after the flood in civilizations such as Sumer, dynastic Egypt, ancient Greece and Rome, Angkor Wat, Teotihuacán, El Mirador, and of course the Maya.
Animistic principles state that all objects and systems—including humans, animals, plants, rocks, rivers, weather, arts and crafts, and especially thoughts and speech—are animated and thus alive with their own form of consciousness. Therefore, they must not be unnaturally manipulated, twisted, or exploited without respect for their inherent consciousness. This is an enlightened concept from the perspective of living in harmony with nature.
You can think of it in terms of our ancient ancestors and their understanding of the unseen world. In modern terms, you would think of the unseen world in terms of the electromagnetic spectrum, gravity, nuclear and other forces that modern science exploits. As much as we are dazzled by the miracles and conveniences of modern technology, they have also built a prison around human consciousness. We are literally slaves to science and technology, with much of it completely devoid of humanity.
Animistic science was capable of moving millions of stones, each one weighing a million kilograms or more. That’s two million pounds per stone. And they fit these stones together so perfectly you can not even slide a slice of paper between them. Modern civilization is nowhere near capable of this, and yet we are "educated" to dismiss the past as devolved and rudimentary. Nothing could be farther from the truth.
Looking at the ancient Mayan pyramids, their pottery, and codices, it is clear that the Maya had incredible medicine, engineering, astronomy, and a natural construct of time. The Maya were among the last civilizations to operate on animistic principles.
In designing these clothes I wish to convey that this is not just a luxury designer hoodie, it’s a living object. It obtains its living essence from a combination of design and the quality of your actions in the world. This is the core of what it means to live an animistic life. It is to be aware that everything, all animate and inanimate objects are infused with unseen energy interacting in real-time with your will, your intent, your actions. Having an awareness that your being is in communion with the outside world, across unseen lines of communication, is at the core of all life on earth, and what it will become.
The vision for Mystics of the Maya, including the novel series, brand apparel, the MOtM education center on Patreon, and perhaps future movies, games, streaming series, and documentaries, is to resurrect and reconstruct our awareness of Animism, as well as real-time, and how to live within animistic principles in real-time. We will achieve this through factual and authentic indigenous storytelling, education, and design. Awareness of the interdependence of all life on earth and how it synchronizes into a fractal rhythm, inside and out, is an antidote to the hollow scientific materialism of today. For those who wish to participate and contribute to the revisioning of all life on earth, it is essential that we reinstitute Real-time to our way of being.
What is Real-time?
I mediation we come to realize real-time as the here and now, the peace and tranquility that is experienced when the ego-centric mind shuts down; literally awareness without the burden of compulsive thinking.
In the Mayan animistic sense, real-time is the fractal nature of time that can be seen in the syncopation of all rhythms; astronomical, corporeal, terrestrial, etc.
The Mayan calendar is commonly viewed as an archaic timepiece from a stone-age culture. This is a lie. The calendar is a fractal algorithm in perfect harmony with thousands of astronomical, corporeal, earthly, solar, and even some electromagnetic phenomena only discovered by modern science in recent years.
The Maya, and their predecessors at El Mirador, Machu Picchu, Egypt, and other places, somehow possessed this scientific knowledge as far back as 11,000 B.C. The calendar system may even be a relic from a time before the flood. The fact is, we are many thousands of years behind the curve in terms of scientific discovery and application. Certainly, we are in the dark ages of morality, ethics, and harmony with nature. Modern civilization is in desperate need of a new direction.
2012 ended a 26,000-year cycle of the Mayan calendar. As I said, we have passed the tipping point. This 26,000-year cycle is understood by modern science to be Axial Precession. Axial precession is the gradual shift in the orientation of the Earth’s axis, as it rotates in a complete circle over 26,000 years.
Starting at the end of 2012, we entered the first 20-year (K’atun) period of the new 26,000-year cycle. According to the Mayan calendar, this is a tumultuous (earthquake) period triggered by an electromagnetic and gravitational rebirth of the Sun. Think of it in terms of the earth’s interaction with the Sun electromagnetic field. Human beings are certainly bioelectric organisms. We are antennae for the electromagnetic and gravitational realities produced by our Sun, and the Earth all around us. This relationship between the Earth, the Sun, and our bioelectric field (consciousness) is at the core of ancient Animism. As Graham Hancock states, we are a species in amnesia. We have not even begun to understand human consciousness, let alone the almighty influence the Sun and the Earth have on human consciousness. Clearly, the Maya did understand this interdependent relationship and its timepiece codified this knowledge in the Gods and symbols they used to depict these forces in the Dresden Codex, as entities. You will be wearing this knowledge.
We do not understand the nuances of ancient animistic sciences. That information was lost through countless cataclysms and the brutality of the resulting devolution. Then there was the conquest and colonialism of these past 520-years. However, we’re beginning to understand it and you can choose to become a part of the regenerative process we are going through today. These clothes, our books, a subscription to the ongoing education provided at Patreon, are ways of immersing yourself in ideas and actions for a new reality of your choosing.
Because this is the first twenty-year (K’atun) period of the New Sun, the nature of the next 26,000-years is being decided now. What the future becomes is entirely dependent on us.
It’s time you understood your power to invest, every day, peacefully, animately, towards a wholly different vision for life on Earth than what is being offered today. The death rattle of the old will not sustain you. I do not advocate for the abandonment of science or technology. I advocate the embrace of animism and its life-affirming, long-term impacts on our ethics, science, and technology. This will define the manner in which we arrange ourselves here on earth for the next 26,000-years.

From a pure fashion perspective, you can wear this hoodie overtop or underneath our designer bomber jackets, under a winter coat, or a jean jacket. Wear it openly as an encrypted statement of animistic power, technology, and ethics. Whenever and however you wear it, you are declaring for an infinitely more humane, compassionate, prosperous, and technologically exotic future than the hell-scape being forced upon us by a dying beast.
This hoodie is a warm and cozy layer for winter. It is also light enough to wear overtop a t-shirt or a long sleeve shirt on spring and fall days. It is also breathable enough for summertime. No matter how you decide to wear it you will look amazing and the influence you have on those around you will be noticed.
With a comfortable brushed fleece interior, relaxed cut, and a premium quality print, this designer hoodie is for animistic Women. It’s a truly meaningful and versatile addition to your wardrobe. Grab yours now!
