The art with text invites us to learn and use the G.P.S. (Global Positioning System) to designate geographic address by altitude(meters above sea level) and by degrees of longitude and latitude measured from Greenwich, England. While we ordinary humans are later in synchronizing local street addresses and national postal zones to Greenwich standard units of space than our calendars and clocks to Greenwich mean time, GPS programs are recently available for U.S. missiles targeted with pinpoint accuracy and for luxury cars. Also programs are already in use that apply barcodes and GPS tracking to monitor each time and place a pint of blood changes hands between its original donar and recipient.

We use this icon to signal people to label the year, month, and day, they added any other label info to a commodity destined for U.S. interstate commerce. It reminds us the ancestors of ancient native Central Americans were using a solar calendar , more useful for scientific predictions, before Europeans.
consists of three Mayan glyphs. The top one is [tun] and means 20, the length of the Mayan "month." We added the line, which represents five, and the two dots meaning
