Reform Calendar: the Synaptic Calendar to date
The Autumnal Equinox signifies the passing of the days into darkness, and the three-quarter mark of the Synaptic Year.
a brief summary of work to date:
13 months of 28 days, subdivided into 4 weeks of 7 days.
plus 1 day, falling on the Winter Solstice (December 21st)
This calendar is perpetual, its New Year always fixed at the Winter Solstice.
Here’s the annual Synaptic 13-month calendar mapped to the Gregorian.
72 periods of 5 days
plus 5 days, currently April 15-19. The first day coincides with the Sun passing into the astronomical constellation of Aries, currently April 20.
This means a shift of 1 day every 72 years to account for the shift in 1 degree due to the Precession of the Equinoxes.
The 5-day periods can further be organised as 12 months of 30 days, or 18 months of 20 days, or 72 periods of 5-days.
A Precession of 25, 920 years = 360 x 72 years
13 periods of I to XX (roman numerals in lieu of traditional glyphs)
measures the gestation period of a human being
used to synchronize various measures of time, and introduces a harmonizing numerology.
13-day periods, 4 of which form a 52-day period, or 5 of which form a 65 day period.
XX-day periods, subdivided into shorter patterns of 4- and 5-days
a Precession of 26, 000 years = 260 Centuries
12 or 13 months of 29 or 30 days
Metonic cycle of 235 lunations to 19 years begins on Winter Solstice.
binary I-Ching 64-day cycle synchronises lunations, sunspots and the Precession
A Precession of 25, 838 years = 64 x 6 x 64 x 6 x 64 days
counts -1 0 +1 from the zero date
for the moment, the periodicity of the Leap Year remains the same as that of the Gregorian Calendar, acknowledge the day before the Winter Solstice.
Longer Periods of Time
the measure of the years shall be measured by factors of 20x
20x 400x 8, 000x years would be the most common notation after day and month, however, continuing on to larger time periods of
3, 200, 000x
64, 000, 000x and so on
Clarification regarding Tropical Year and Calendar Year
The Tropical Year = 365.24218967 days
Gregorian = 365.2425 days
the Tropical Year is the measure of the ratio of rotations of the Earth to its orbit around the Sun as measured at the Vernal Equinox.
The Calendar Year is the measure of days according to one’s calendar system.
Thus, the above Synaptic Calendar components reflect 365- 360- and 260- calendar day years.
The lunation cycle is all wobbly, so who knows.
This relationship depends on the Leap Year day falling outside of the 3 principle calendars (ie 365- 360- 260- days). Thus, the Leap year day falls between the last month and the first month of the 365-day calendar, with the 5 null days of the 36-day calendar and between any two given days on the 260-day calendar (observed with the 365-day calendar on the Winter Solstice as per Gregorian frequency).
this is a particular feature of the 260-day calendar: a quick overview
1-13 numbers and I-XX symbols
begins with 1-I and ends with 13-XX for 260 distinct days
Looking at the roman numerals arranged in a 5×4 square, note the shared features of the horizontal numbers.
On any given day, say December 20, 2012, the day has a number and numeral, specifically 10-IX. The following year will be 11-XIV, the following 12-XVIX then 13-IV then 1-IX, 2-XIV etc…
this creates a 13×4 pattern between the 260-day calendar date and any annual solar calendar – provided the leap year day is acknowledged as a null day off of the calendar.
