The Hindu Abysmal Symbol – updated

31 August 2006

Hindu Moon in the Abyss

the Abyss of the Earth’s shadow while at the furthest point from the Sun.

Note that the symbol at the bottom right resembles the Synaptic Calendar‘s structure, and in the above example, represents the point of the Full Moon, when Earth stands fully between her and the Sun.

Calendar Reform: New Synaptic month

31 August 2006

Month of Sagittarius

Today marks a new 28-day month on the reform Synaptic Calendar, the month of Sagittarius, and with this new month the attachment of Synaptic Calendar dates as a footer to all posts. These may be adjusted for accuracy as the system develops.

Today’s Synaptic Date:
(d/m/y/20)

Sunday 0.9.(7).(0)
the 1st day of the 10th month, Sagittarius.

*Day 0 is always a Sunday.
*Year (6) represents 6 years prior to the inception
* The (0) to the right of the year represents the 20-year period in which the day takes place. Again, it is counting down to the inception date of 0.0.0.0.

–Synaptic Date (d/m/y/20) — Sunday 0.9.(7).(0)
–chronological (days until implementation) — (2304)


260-Day Calendar

30 August 2006

Calendar Reform: 365- & 260-day patterns.

see gestation, time and health – updates pend!
tzolkin basics
mayan sacred calendar

260 days divide into:
13 x 20-day progression of symbolic Glyphs
20 x 13-day Fortnights
5 x 52-day Decks*
4 x 65-day Quarters**

(also 10 x 26 and 2 x 130)

*1 Deck = 52 Days = 4 x 13-day Fortnights
**1 Quarter = 65 Days = 5 x 13-Day Fortnights

Measuring the Leap Year Day by 260-days

given the ratio of Earth’s rotation about her axis to her orbit around the Sun (measured as the Tropical Year) as:
365.2421896698

Observing a Leap Year Day every 1058th-Day would measure the year as:
365.2422031

an intercalary Null Leap Year Day every 29 decks, or every 1508th day is a Null day.
The intercalary Leap Year Day is also observed on the 365-Day Calendar as a Null Day which falls between two consecutive weekdays.

A Null day counts as 1 day on the chronological count. It does not have a weekday, month or year number and falls between two consecutive days, whether measured by number or other symbol.

1508 days

= 29 decks
= 5 x 260 + 4 decks

= 53 months + 20 days
= 4 x 365 + 48 days

Recommendation: people born on a Null day may designate either the day before or the day after the Null day as their birthday, or they may choose to accept the Abyss, and celebrate their birthday on the Winter Solstice and every 29 Decks on the Null Day.

13-Months and 13-Score days.

The 260-day calendar’s progression of 20 glyphs provides a progressive pattern noticeable on the 365-Day calendar. It is precisely this interaction which tightens the weave of this system as a measure of a progressive measure of time.

First, each day is assigned a number, beginning with 1 through 13, then beginning again and repeating the progression.

Second, each days is also assigned a glyph, or symbol, according to a particular progression. There are several variations of these symbols and their order and attributation. Read from top-to-bottom, left-to-right beginning with Imix, then Ik, Akbal, Kan, Chicchan, Cimi, and so on.

Imix

Dragon

Cimi

Death

Chuwen

Monkey

Cib

Vulture

Ik

Wind

Manik

Deer

Eb

Human

Caban

Earth

Akbal

Abyss

Lamat

Rabbit

Ben

Reed

Etznab

Mirror

Kan

Corn

Muluc

Moon

Ix

Jaguar

Cauac

Storm

Chicchan

Serpent

Ok

Dog

Men

Eagle

Ahau

Sun

In the table above, the columns designate the chronological progression, and, the rows in the table above designate 5 Sub-Groups of 4 Glyphs each.

Third, the Leap Year Day must be observed off the calendar. Traditionally observed February 29th, it would be observed between February 28th and March 1st without a month or number assigned to it in order to allow the following progression of days to occur.

For the sake of example, say the first day of the 260-Day calendar, 1-Imix, falls on June 21 2000.

The two would coincide chronologically as follows:

June 21 2000 = 1-Imix
June 22 2000 = 2-Ik
June 23 2000 = 3-Akbal
June 24 2000 = 4-Kan
June 25 2000 = 5-Chicchan
etc…

Given the first 5-glyph group as cited above, Imix – Cimi – Chuwen – Cib, and observing the same day from year to year, the two would coincide as follows:

June 21 2000 = 1-Imix
June 21 2001 = 2-Cimi
June 21 2002 = 3-Chuwen
June 21 2003 = 4-Cib
June 21 2004 = 5-Imix
June 21 2005 = 6-Cimi
etc…

then June 22 coincides with Ik – Manik – Eb – Caban, as:

June 22 2000 = 2-Ik
June 22 2001 = 3-Manik
June 22 2002 = 4-Eb
June 22 2003 = 5-Caban
etc…

Thus, any given day on a 365-day calendar will also have a 13-number and 4- glyph progression to mark the years.

Each day develops meaning from year to year, as it finds a place in a clearly mapped progression.

ending 2, 000, 000 years ago.

During the Pleistocene Epoch:

250, 000 years of interglaciation
500, 000 years of glaciation
200, 000 years
15, 000 years of glaciation
35, 000 years

75, 000 years of glaciation
20, 000 years
55, 000 years of glaciation
12, 000 years ago to present of interglaciation

A link between the Earth’s motion and ice ages may provide a basis for calendrical measurement.

Astronomical Theory of Climate Change

Variations in Earth’s Orbit:
Axial Tilt – 22.5 – 24 degrees – 41, 000 years
(currently 23.4 degrees, decreasing)

Eccentricity of Orbit – 100, 000 year and 400, 000 year cycles

Precession – 22- 26, 000 years


Holocene and Geological Timelines

25 August 2006

Calendar Reform: including longer measures of time

see also: Long Times

These are roughly the periods of Geological Time, as the results remain speculative. Given a certain degree of wiggle room with the time intervals (licentiousness refrained), what numberological system would best befit these Periods & Eras?

13 x 20 x 100 years = 26, 000 years = 1 estimated Precession of the Equinoxes

26, 000 years reflects the 13 x 20 days it takes for a human being to come to birth.

Can a similar reflection in time be made with the following delineations?

64 I Ching Hexagrams

25 August 2006

4 Directional Colours

Replacing 64 Hexagrams
:the traditional I-Ching Hexagram structure: 6-lines, read from bottom to top, either solid or broken, representing Yang and yin respectively [the comparisons between the lines of the hexagrams and the Taoist yin & Yang are not universally compatible).

WIth 4096 Hexagrams
replacing the dual structure of 2 lines, the 4 colours yield a more complex series of images. In part, base 2 defines a line with 2 points.
4 points define a plane, the 4 directions N – E – W – S, with the 6 lines of the hexagram representing the vertical axis, from Earth to Heaven.

64 Trigrams:
