Functional Time Design

It seems to be straightforward that related time design can be interpreted from out of the spin-orbital movements.

Functional composition

The spin and orbital configuration of the Earth and Moon presents a resident of the Earth with an ever-changing pageant. Each day passes into night, and night passes back into day. The Moon's synodic period passes through phases of waxing and waning. The annual seasons cycle between summertime and wintertime. As a result of the spin and orbital phenomenon, a resident of the Earth can ultimately enjoy an average day of 24 hours, perceive a lunar period of 29.53059 days, and experience a solar circle of 365.24219 days.

Significant about the mechanical makeup of the Earth and Moon is that it is possible to interpret rates of solar days, synodic periods, and tropical years all in the context of an intelligent interface. To make this view more clear, the Earth and Moon throughout their orbits could be compared to gears positioned on the backside of a clock face--where from the perspective of the gears, clock time would be rather difficult to interpret.

An interface defined between the lunar and solar movements--seemingly intelligent--is easy to recognize when the day rate is accounted for in cycles of 30 days. Remarkable here is that--when this cyclical count is endlessly performed--the average lunar and solar periods can effectively be represented by simply counting day units.

To more fully expose that the completion rates of both periods (lunar and the solar) can be interfaced to a specific number of day cycles, subsequent sections will explore the huge significance of a time unit equal to 30 days. This respective time period can ultimately be recognized to be a natural or an inherent definition of the combined spin-orbital movements.

Day cycles

An evaluation of the spin rate of the Earth (the daily rate) in comparison with both the lunar and solar periods indicates some certain significance to the rate of one day in every 30 days.

To document this day-rate interface, it becomes expedient to compare the rate of 30 days both with the rate of the lunar month and with the rate of the solar year.

When one day in 30 days is considered to be unique and consequently is accounted as apart from all the days that occupy the time stream, it can be recognized that the limits of each passing solar year (or the tropical year of 365.24219 days) does inherently clock right in pace with the same longitudinal phase of the rotating Earth. In essence, the rate of the solar year (365.24219 days) can be proven to return (on average) with the same hour and minute of the solar day.

For the purpose of presenting a clear analysis, a set-apart day each 30 days--an average rate equivalent to 12.17474 days per year--will hereafter be referred to as MC.

Note that the rate of 1 day in 30 days is the same rate as 12.17474 days in each tropical year of 365.24219 days.

As is further shown below, when 1 day in 30 days (the rate of MC) is always leaped, or accounted apart, from other days that occupy the time stream, the annual transit can be expressed always in terms of an identical number count of days.

A fixed day count of the tropical year however requires that a secondary rate of days be likewise accounted as separate and as apart from those days that are numbered annually. This additional rate is easy to recognize in the context of a span of time equal to 7 lunar weeks.

Note that the Moon's synodic period completes every 29.53059 days (on the average). Consequently, the length of the tropical year is inherently equal to 12.36827 synodic revolutions. A synonymous cross-reference would be in terms of lunar quarters, or lunar weeks--where the lenth of the tropical year (365.24219 days) is inherently equal to 49.47306 lunar-quarter cycles (or 49.47306 lunar weeks).

The length of each tropical year can thus be correlated to a time span defined by spins of the Earth when a unique day at the frequency of each 7th lunar week is also accounted for.

For the purpose of presenting the clearest analysis, a set-apart day each 7 lunar weeks--an average rate of 7.06758 days per year--will hereafter be referred to as SW.

Note that the rate of 1 day in 7 lunar weeks is the same rate as 7.06758 days in each tropical year of 365.24219 days.

The rate of 1 day (or Earth spin) in each cycle of 7 lunar weeks is hugely significant to a study of related time design--as is further shown throughout subsequently presented paragraphs and linked literature.

Metering the annual circle

When the cited occurrences of MC and SW are routinely accounted as apart from other days that occupy the stream of time then it becomes possible to assign each passing tropical year to an idential annual count of the other days.

To document the possibility of using a fixed annual count, it is manifest from the first of the previously stated axioms for MC that this rate is inherently equal to 12.17474 days per year. It is also manifest from the second of the previously stated axioms for SW that this secondary rate is inherently equal to 7.06758 days per year. This means that occurrences of MC and SW are (together) equal to a rate of 19.24232 days per year--in average time.

Note a rate that averages 12.17474 days per year and also a rate that averages 7.06758 days per year is equal to a composite rate that averages 19.24232 days per year.
Because 19.24232 days per tropical year are equal to the combined rates of MC and SW it becomes a given conclusion that each passing tropical year (of 365.24219 days) can effectively be measured and metered out by simply counting all of the other days as annual days. An identical number of annual days is easy to recognize in the regard that 346 annual days plus the day rates of MC and SW are inherently equal to 365.24232 days.

The cited count (always 346 days per year) is then significant in the regard that each tropical year can effectively be measured and metered out in the context of accounting for solar days.

365.242 days (1 year) -19.242 days (MC+SW) ------------ 346.000 days

Note that occurrences of MC and SW inherently yield 19.24232 renewal days per solar year (on the average). When the occurrences of MC and SW are set apart (or leaped, or subtracted) from out of the time stream then the reoccurrence of the solar year is proven to just about exactly coincide with a whole-number count of all the other days (a number count of no more or less than 346 solar days).

Thus, each annual transit of the Sun can be interpreted to be divided into renewal days located at MC and SW and 346 days in addition.

It here seems to be significant that an interface can be interpreted between the spin of the Earth, the synodic return of the Moon, and each revolution of the tropical year. This interface between the orbital returns and cycles of days can be proven to be almost exact in average time). Essentially, a metered count of 346 solar days--when counted in association with the renewals of MC and SW--is equal to 365.24232 days or is equal to the same number of days, hours, and minutes as are contained in each passing tropical year. (More about the perfection inherent in reckoning the renewals of MC and SW is shown below).

Accuracy analysis

It should then be clear from the previously cited axioms that each passing tropical year can effectively be measured or metered out by tracking only two short time cycles (solar and lunar). In essence, equally distributed day divisions on average (always 346 per year) can be interpreted within the context of counting solar days and lunar weeks.

Of significance here is that the epoch of each passing solar year of 365.24219 days is inherently metered (to within the limits of 365.24232 days) by always counting 346 days.

Note that the indicated fixed day count is perfect to within an annual difference of only 11 seconds!

Most remarkable is that the cited annual count (346 days) can be recognized to have been fully or absolutely perfect only several centuries before.

Modern astronomers have determined that the current spin rate of the Earth is slowing down--as a trend definition. Estimates indicate that--throughout the previous four thousand years--the spin rate of the Earth has slowed down at a rate of between 0.0036 and 0.0073 spin-seconds per year.

Based upon the slowing spin rate of the Earth, it can be predicted that at no more than about 3000 years ago the length of each passing tropical year was then exactly defined within the context of accounting for MC and SW.

Note that this day-cycle interface is now, in modern times, almost fully perfect. However, the modern interface differs by only 11 seconds on an annual basis--as cited. The time when a perfect interface once existed is easy to predict by simply dividing the modern difference of 11.2 seconds by the indicated number of spin-seconds of annual change, minimally 0.0036 spin-seconds per year. The result of this division predicts that a maximum span of 3111 years has elapsed from the time of perfect interface. The time when a fully perfect interface existed then would have been in a time range somewhere less than 32 centuries ago (as a prediction).

The spin and orbital phenomenon can be interpreted to comprise a time tracking system that is rational or intelligent.

Inherent from the spin and orbital rates is the definition of a month-like cycle of 30 solar days. Also inherent is the definition of a related lunar-week cycle.

These two simple time cycles would--of themselves--be almost insignificant. However, when the two cycles are evaluated in the context of comprising a system, the combination of cycles rather clearly reflect interrelated time-design.

The following summary points can ultimately be drawn from an evaluation of these two cycles:
