(image source: https://lawoftime.org/history/)
Bio:
Born into a Mexican-American heritage, Jose/Valum Votan, the artistic polymath, poet, visionary, and ancient-future historian, is best known for his initiation of the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987. His inquisitive spirit led him to explore resonant harmonics and transmit the profound principles of Cosmic Science and the Law of Time, leaving a legacy of inspiration for the next seven generations of art, knowledge, and interstellar exploration. 
His core objective: Continue the legacy.

Bibliography (as Jose Arguelles and/or Valum Votan, a sample of the works):

Cosmic History Chronicles with Stephanie South (Volumes 1 to 7) 

Quote from the Mayan Factor:  
“While the myths and stories are there, hidden in the texts, peeping out from the jungle creepers, winking at us from among the brilliant flowers growing out of hewn stone, what forces itself upon our attention are the numbers. As we have seen, the insistence of the numbers occurs in the telling of the times of ‘origins.’ The numbers also speak when we read the garbled texts of the prophets of Chilam Balam, who, going into trance, speak everything in numbers, the 1, the 13, the 7, the 9, the 4. Are the numbers living? Are they entities, etheric and intangible, occupying dimensions of mind, the existence of which is unsuspected by our materialistic head-sets?”  (chapter 3,”The Galactic Masters & The Numbers of Destiny” page 65)

“In 1896, Kristian Birkeland, one of the most brilliant scientists of his time, began publishing the great breakthroughs. He hypothesized that the Sun emits rays of electricity (‘cathode rays’), which reach the Earth and are ‘the object of a suction’ by the Earth’s magnetic poles, and that there is a correlation between sunspots, the Earth’s polar aurorae, and terrestrial magnetic perturbations (chapter 7, “Kristian Birkeland’s Miraculous Discovery”, page 98)

Quote from "The Thomas Code: Solving the Mystery of the Gospel of Thomas"
“The Gospel of Thomas loves contradiction, and this saying seems to contradict other sayings. The disciples are told to fast, although 1.5 & 1.6R have already told them not to fast! In this case, the contradiction is easily resolved; the disciples are not to fast in the traditional Jewish sense, but to ‘fast from the world.’ This reflects the new spiritual law that supersedes the traditional Jewish law.” (chapter 11, “The second eighteen”, pages 153-154)

“Neither differential and integral calculus, nor ‘probability’ statistics, nor any branch of specialized hard science has accredited synergy as an a priori assumption. General systems theory, which recognizes synergy as inherent, was discovered and named by the biologically inspired Ludwig von Bertalanffy.” (section 400.00, “System”, page 68, verse 400.24)

But I am eager to capture whatever he does sing, eager to learn the details of each of his songs” (chapter 1, “Beginnings”, page 15)

“Instead, you see a whole range of errors, wandering across the chart. Indeed, the mistakes have a Rococo structure of their own, worthy years of study. In the options industry, where mistakes can cost millions, that is exactly what they have received. Hundreds of scholarly papers, several textbooks, and scores of financial conferences have been devoted to studying the errors”(chapter 13, “In the Lab”, page 270).

Quote from
"The Souls of Black Folk"
“After the Egyptian and Indian, the Greek and Roman, the Teuton and Mongolian, the Negro is a sort of seventh son, born with a veil, and gifted with second-sight in this American world, - a world which yields him no true self-consciousness, but only lets him see himself through the revelation of the other world. It is a peculiar sensation, this double-consciousness, this sense of always looking at one’s self through the eyes of others, of measuring one’s soul by the tape of a world that looks on in amused contempt and pity. One ever feels his two-ness, an American, a Negro; two souls, two thoughts, two unreconciled strivings; two warring ideals in one dark body, whose dogged strength alone keeps it from being torn asunder” (chapter 1, “Of Our Spiritual Strivings”, page 3)

Quote from "Sacred Economics: Money, Gift & Society in the Age of Transition" 
“Now we have a choice: try to maintain the debt with extreme austerity policies, or begin the process of wealth redistribution. Each new crisis, each new bailout, offers the opportunity to buy out unrepayable debts with decaying currency, thereby rescuing the financial infrastructure without further intensifying the concentration of wealth. Moreover, when traditional monetary stimulus and Keynesian fiscal stimulus fail beyond doubt, central banks can hardly ignore the obvious next step of pushing interest rates below zero. To prevent currency wars, this should happen as a coordinated policy of all sovereign powers, or it should be built into a global currency” (chapter 17, “Summary and Roadmap”, page 295).

Quote from The Body Electric: Electromagnetism and the Foundation of Life
“The biggest problem Western medicine had in accepting acupuncture was there were no known anatomical structures corresponding to the meridians, those live wires supposedly just under the skin. Some investigators claimed to have located tiny clusters of sensory neurons where the points were, but others had looked for them in vain. My proposal offered a convenient way into the problem…If we could confirm these variations in skin resistance and measure current coming from the points, we’d know acupuncture was real in the Western sense, and we could go confidently in search of the physical structures” (chapter 13, “The Missing Chapter”, page 234).

Quote from "How to Read a Book: The Classic Guide to Intelligent Reading"
“How can a book grow as you grow? It is impossible, of course; a book, once it is written and published, does not change. But what you only now begin to realize is that the book was so far above you to begin with that it has remained above you, and probably always will remain so. Since it is a really good book–a great book, as we might say–it is accessible at different levels. Your impression of increased understanding on your previous reading was not false. The book truly lifted you then. But now, even though you have become wiser and more knowledgeable, it can lift you again” (chapter 21, “Reading and the Growth of the Mind”, page 334)

Quote from "The Secret World of Weather: How to Read Signs in Every Cloud, Breeze, Hill, Street, Plant, Animal and Dewdrop"
“The sun’s role in this is critical, and it is also the most regular, dependable and predictable. The variable characters of the air and landscape are where we find more intriguing clues, and it is the air that we should focus on now. If the air is very dry, we will see no low clouds at any point during the day. The sun reigns. If the air is extremely humid, it is unlikely that we will see much of the sun. But most days that start fine fall somewhere between the extremes, and the key to understanding what lies ahead is spotting where we are on this spectrum. We do this by studying the behavior of the cumulus clouds especially carefully in the second half of the day” (chapter 3, “The Talk of the Skies”, pages 38 to 39).

“Wonder Woman stands with her feet planted wide and her hands on her hips as a symbol of strength. Are these expansive postures just typical body positions that have been modeled by others in positions of status and prestige, or do those postures cause a person to feel more effective and more powerful? In other words, is the abstract concept of power embodied in a particular stance in the same way that approach and avoidance may be embodied in patterns of arm movements?” (chapter 3, “The Body’s Role in Social and Emotional Judgements”, page 37)

“Genetically, we represent the set number of keys on a standard piano. Each one of us plays our genes uniquely, thus, creating a beautiful melody of appearances, talents and art forms of physical expression and yet, the gene pool (genome) remains the same. Just as Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Stevie Wonder, and Alicia Keys create beautiful, but different music on the same piano keyboard. We create the same incredible diversity genetically within our standard gene pool (genome). We are all one. We are all kindred, from the same source, so let us greet each other with a renewed spirit of acceptance since the veil of ignorance has been removed and the truth can now blossom” (introduction, page 5)
