13 baktuns, 0 katuns, 0 tuns, 0 uinals, 0 kins

Corresponding with 11 August of 3114 BCE, if one were to retroactively apply the Gregorian timetable, this date represents (depicted left) the start of the Mesoamerican Long Count Calendar, cyclical though non-repeating tally of days since creation—or rather when humans first appeared as cultured creatures, the world having existed since time immemorial and epochs prior to their arrival. That prior age came to an end, amid a lot of ill-informed hysteria, on 20 December 2012—and we are well into the fourteenth b’ak’tun.
