Carl Johan Calleman

I was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 1950 and my scholarly career is now beginning on its third phase. The first phase was training and practice as a professional scientist in the years 1974-93. I got my PhD in Physical Biology under the mentorship of a member of the Nobel committees exposing me to a high level of international science. Later, as a Senior Researcher at the University of Washington I have written a number of extensively quoted articles in the scientific literature in the fields of Environmental Science, Chemistry and Cancer Research. The second phase, which began in 1993, has been dedicated to understanding the ancient Mayan calendar and its underlying mechanisms and making this understandable to modern people. A trip to Mexico and Guatemala in 1979 as a backpacker had alerted me to the potential value of the ways of thinking of the ancient Native peoples and had me hooked ever since.
