Complex mathematics and astronomy served calendar makers many thousands of years ago. The best tool for tying the ancient calendar system to the current year is a common denominator known as the tropical year. The mean tropical year is the astronomical measurement that describes the modern solar year with a high degree of precision. The tropical year is the 365.2424-day interval between two successive passages of the sun through the vernal equinox. The tropical year stems from two parallels that include the Tropic of Capricorn and Tropic of Cancer. Five major Circles of Latitude provide background material to understanding calendar systems.
Every modern Gregorian Calendar year begins with the Earth’s position in orbit around the sun. The time the Earth takes to complete one full revolution along the ecliptic plane determines our year. An imaginary axis passes through the Earth to extend beyond the North Pole and South Pole. The 24-hour day marks one complete spin around this axis. The same axis tilts with respect to the sun while the year progresses. The spring, vernal equinox marks the beginning of spring for people in the Northern Hemisphere. The vernal equinox happens between March 21 and March 23 annually. Autumn begins with the fall, occipital equinox for the same Northern half of the world. The fall equinox takes place around September 22. At the solstices, the tilt of the Earth’s axis reaches a maximum inclination of 23.5 degrees. The winter solstice occurs around December 21 and the summer solstice occurs around June 21 every year. The two equinoxes and two solstices are the four cardinal points during the year. By religious observations and in myth and legend the equinoxes and solstices have always been celebrated events.
The tropical year is the natural heavenly timekeeper to mark one astronomical year. Huge telescopes and lengthy calculations have verified the tropical year. A mean tropical year is the principle ingredient to any calendar structure. We have the marvelous technology of today. Ancient people came to similar conclusions by watching shadows cast from their standing stones. Like the sundial gnomon, the pillar’s shadow grew and retracted according to the sun.
At first glance ancient technology pales in comparison to modern time keeping methods. The mind exploding irony — is the tropical year proves ancient ones observed and documented time with meticulous precision. The ancestry of the Patriarchs records solar-side time splits with accuracy that rivals modern engineering standards. Solar-side time splits of Seth, Cainan and later Jared, show impressive calendar math by introducing the current tropical year. The astronomical 365.2424-day length of tropical year is an accepted factual reference.
Two distinct pathways present alternative goals for the calendar. The original lunar/solar Antediluvian Calendar simply adapted celestial motion to whole number integer multiples within the 365-day-solar-year. A 364-day-Ethiopic-year allowed ancient people to focus or concentrate calendar reckoning into a central corridor. The last, 365th-day of the solar-year enables numerically matching X-number of days with X-number of years. According to the Book of Enoch I (ch. 74:1-4), specific instructions were not to include the final day in regular computations of the year. The remaining 364-day-Ethiopic-year divides into four 90-day quarters defined by the annual cardinal points. One of four Royal, Archangel Stars was the designated commanding luminary for the entire quarter. Ethiopic refers geographically to the original 364-day-calendar-year.
Sun Kingdoms Calendar plans that include the Mayan Calendar and sister cultures exhibit similar characteristics through the last four “year-bearer” days of the 364-day-Ethiopic-year. The Mayans did in fact calculate a 365-day-solar-year in their calendar. They extended time cycles such as the 52-year Calendar Round and the 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year by figuring astonishing multiples to last hundreds and furthermore, thousands of years. Spirituality was the motivating factor behind doing vast time projections in the ancient world. Ancient priest astronomers purposely sought to create supernatural access. The traditional Mayan Calendar did not specifically recognize the four Royal stars, choosing instead to rotate the last four “year bearer” days through various 20-year-l/s-Katun-cycles.
The Antediluvian Calendar considered the Leap Day fraction by multiplying each 4-year Leap cycle by 1.25-days per year to arrive at 5-days. Four 364-day-Ethiopic-years resulted in 16-days of difference with respect to four 360-day-Tun-years. Each 4-year Leap cycle produces 21-days and one 20-year-l/s-Katun-cycle accrues 105-days. I call time following the 360-day-Tun-year “solar-side time split” to distinguish it from lunar/solar discussion. Squaring the 20-year-l/s-Katun-cycle achieves the 400-year-l/s-Baktun-cycle and 105-days of solar-side time split modify for 105-years of solar-side time split. Numerical matching conceives a shortcut through time.
Our modern Gregorian Calendar is basically a number line format that records time. We include the last 365th-day and account for the remaining fractional component by adding the necessary Leap Days. One Leap Day every 4-solar-year Leap cycle adds February 29 during Leap Years. Provisions omit Leap Days during centurial Leap Years not evenly divisible by 400-years. In other words, the years 1700, 1800 and 1900 skipped Leap Day. The year 2000 included Leap Day. Further refinements are Leap second adjustments, which usually occur at New Year’s under advisement from the astronomical community. Common opinion today reverses much of the ancient. We largely disregard supernatural activity as completely independent from the calendar. They purposely applied spirituality to the calendar to make events happen.
A numerical matching theme of X-days with X-years creates an internal conduit within the ordinary time stream. Anyone who celebrates anniversaries, birthdays or memorials can immediately understand the spiritual connotations. We want to preserve the past heritage and recapture the spirit of the moment. In some cases, we remember just to avoid past mistakes. One could venture the imaginary wormhole in physics results from numerically matching X-days with X-years. For example, choose a holiday such as Christmas and marketing research shows a significant buying season accompanies the holiday season. Choose a national holiday such as July 4 and people have fireworks displays throughoutAmericayear after year. A singularity wormhole exists solely by acknowledging anniversaries. In our calendar, differing groups commemorate special days differently and holidays neutralize in other cultures. Christmas appeals only to Christians and July 4 only to Americans. People from other cultures and places validate the same method of reasoning. The obvious is the absurd.
Seth’s primary 105-year age identifies the first time split of the solar-side only primary age category 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle (Genesis 5:6). A 365.2424-day mean tropical year calculates the solar-side 105-years in terms of days. The primary 105-year age of Seth multiplies by the tropical year in order to find the precise day computations for Seth. Equation 1 multiplies the first solar-side only time split by the tropical year length in days. The primary 105-year age of Seth answers exactly 38350.431-days by applying the current mean astronomical tropical year.
Primary 105-Tropical-year age of Seth in days
1.105-year primary age of Seth
x 365.2424 day-Tropical-year
= 38350.452 days primary age of Seth
Judaic 105-year Venus Round primary age of Seth
1.105-year primary age of Seth
= 38,220-day primary age of Seth
Adam’s 365.2424 day-Tropical-year primary 130-day age
1.38350-day primary age of Seth
– 38,220-day primary age of Seth
The difference between 105-Tropical-years and 105-Ethiopic-years for Seth essentially answers 130-days. Seth’s alternative Mayan 104-year Venus Round multiplies by 1.25-days remaining after a 364-day-Ethiopic-year. Every 400-year-l/s-Baktun-cycle stipulates one Venus Round. The Mayan variation amounts two 52-year Calendar Rounds, whereas the Judaic applies numerical matching to get 105-years. The final year of the Judaic, 105-year Venus Round in the primary age of Seth leaves 130-days recorded for the primary 130-year age of Adam (Genesis 5:3). Adam’s 130-year primary age is half of the lunar/solar 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle and finishes the first 400-year-l/s-Baktun-cycle. Adam’s primary age 130-day and 130-year combination embodies the numerical matching principle. In the finest sense, Adam’s primary age 130-day-and-year age describes a single term. Seth’s 105-day-and-year combination measures the solar-side function, also numerically matched, and likewise describes a single term. Summary scriptures in Genesis 5 associate the day-year numerical matching theme. “And all the days of (Patriarch Name) were (Age) years.”
Observing the Gregorian Calendar imparts stability for daily operations. In contrast, early people employing 364-day-Ethiopic-year design introduced instability to the inner core of time. They cut a tunnel, individual and uniquely separate from the outer sheath offered by the remaining year. The inside time tunnel divides into four parts. A single day presides over the entire 90-day quarter. Four days control the remaining 360-days as mundane during the entire year. On full day is set apart for numerically matching X-days with X-years. The Gregorian Calendar has no channel specifically designed for supernatural access. Knowledge of the ancient supernatural channel was limited to the social elite, the wise men, royalty and priests. They collapsed time.
