Aligning the I-Ching with the Lunation of the Moon, Sunspot Cycles & Precession of the Equinoxes

4 March 2007

Cycles of 384, 64 and 13.

for the purposes of numerology in the exercise below
a Lunation takes 29.53 Days measured from the New Moon
a minor Sunspot Cycle takes approximately 11.2 Years measured from the minimum number of sunspots.
a Day’s a day and a Year’s a year.

Using the mathematical equation:

6 x 64 = 384 Days

* where 6 = the lines of the I-Ching hexagram
* where 64 = the number of hexagrams represented by the I-Ching
* where 384 = both the number of lines represented by the I-Ching, and the number of Days in 13 Lunations

6 x 64 x 64 = 24 576 Days
= 13 x 64 Lunations
= 6 minor Sunspot Cycle
(~ 67 Years 104.25 Days)

6 x 64 x 64 x 64 = 1 572 864 Days
= 13 x 64 x 64 Lunations
= 6 x 64 = 384 minor Sunspot Cycles = 13 ???
(~4 306 Years)

6 x 64 x 64 x 64 x 6 = 9 437 184 Days
= 13 x 64 x 64 x 6 = 384 x 64 x 13 Lunations
= 384 x 64 minor Sunspot Cycles
= 1 Precession of the Equinoxes
(~25, 836 Years)

World’s Oldest Solar Eclipse on Record – 3340 BC
“The Irish Neolithics used a 4044.5 day lunar eclipse cycle which is broken up into 365 days x 11 years + 29.5 days (synodic lunar month). This is also similar to a Tritos/Nova Lunation combination of one Tritos cycle of 3986.63 days and two nova lunations of 29.53 days each, yielding a total of 4045.69 days”

The Next Cycle – a Pre-logue.

TheAbysmal Year -7: Gregorian Year December 22 2005 – December 20 2006, has seen the development of a 13-Month Calendar to Re-form the International Standard Measure of Days to replace the Gregorian Calendar. The structure of the 13-Month Calendar was used to schedule the development of this project.

TheAbysmal Year -6: Dec 22 2006 – Dec 20 2007
the intention is to develop a cohesive holistic model of time, health, and urban living, with the Reform Calendar’s structure as the skeleton upon the which is to rest.

Most of the information contained herein was principally inspired by the Mayan Factor, by Jose Arguelles, the Tortuga and Law of Time 13-Moon change for peace movements. A holistic model of healthy living, within the limits of our environment, with the calendar as the central structure in the name of Peace, has been developed, and continues to grow.

TheAbysmal Reform Calendar seeks to use the structure of the most eloquently constructed Calendar system to offer as the International Standard, while still allowing for localised & individualised names for months, glyphs, years, and so on.

The New Year shall see the investigation of Human Development from Birth through Death, and mapping it onto the calendar, as well as creating a holistic model of dietary and preventative health based on diet, the time of year, the amount of daylight and so on, as with Chinese Traditional Medicine, Ayurveda and Macrobiotic Diets.

More recipes, particularly with fresh herbs, seeds, and flowers.
