SCIENCE IN ANCIENT ARTWORK & SCIENCE TODAY
Rotation of the Sun
and Ancient Reckoning
Charles William Johnson
maya companion number, 1366560, has been called the "super number"
by some scholars [Maurice M. Cotterell, The Supergods.]. And, it
is no wonder, when we realize that the relationship between the boiling
point of water (373.16) and the freezing point of water (273.16) on the
Kelvin scale resembles a similar proportion: 1.366085811. Furthermore,
we have also seen how the relationship between the equatorial radius and
polar radius of the Earth also reflects a similar proportion: 1.366050662.

ancient reckoning system, we have maintained, reflects a single system
of computation, if we consider the relational nature of the historically
significant numbers/fractals that appear in many different cultures. Now,
to find an historically significant number in the ancient reckoning system,
and then observe its fractal appearance in different aspects of nature
(matter-energy) somehow defies logic. Many scholars are not given to accepting
any scientific basis to the ancient reckoning system, other than possibly
a few coincidences of astronomical observation.
the similarities of specific historically significant numbers/fractals
in relation to the numbers of the Universe continue to surprise this author.
As we consult the period of solar rotation in days as a function of position
within the Sun, a range is observed between 25 36 days.
In other words, the Sun rotates runs from 25 days at the Sun's equator
to 36 days at the Sun's pole. Some estimates show these figures as 26
37 days. These day-counts refer to the outer shell of the Sun,
while the Sun also appears to rotate internally as a solid body based
on a period of 27 days, in other words, its internally structured core.
previously cited day-counts are estimates given by scientists today. In
other words, one must imagine a range referencing these numbers of days,
not necessarily an exact day-count. Hence, one could imagine a range of
26 36 days, and another 25 37 days. With that,
one immediately calls to mind the ancient reckoning system of day-counts:
260c 360c. A relationship of the calendrical day-counts
is: 360 / 260 = 1.384615385. This number is extremely suggestive
of the other maya companion number, 1385540.
can only marvel at the fact that supposedly erroneous day-counts of the
ancient reckoning system (260c and 360c) just happen to reflect a fractal
expression of the range of the rotation of the Sun's own day-count.
we should remember that the difference between the temperature scale for
boiling/freezing water reflects the proportion of the 260:360 day-counts.
begins to imagine, not only a connection between the day-counts and the
temperature scales, but a relationship between the Sun and thermodynamics
of Earth, which is obviously not only logical but a given in science.
us observe the relationships of the numbers within the range of the rotation
of the Sun in days, as given by different scientists:
range offered recently in standard textbooks on astronomy is that of the
more encompassing 25 36 days, which reflects the maya long
count fractal expression/factor (1.44). Knowing that the ancients had
a 360c day-count and a 260c day-count, one can only wonder whether adjustments
were made as of the companion numbers/fractals. Consider, for example,
enough, the elevation of the Sun Pyramid at Teotihuacan, shown by the
René Millon map [Teotihuacan Mapping Project], is that of
2356.02 meters, suggesting some kind of connection with 26.0 x
1.385540 = 36.02404.)
authors like Fred Hoyle [Astronomy, 1962] have pointed out how
the sunspots do not generally appear above the 30-degree latitude of the
Sun. One cannot help but note that most of the major pyramidal structures
around the world occur within this band of 30-degrees north and south
of the Earth's equator. Other authors call attention to the fact that
a new sunspot cycle generally makes its appearance around the 40-degree
North/South latitude marking of the Sun.
illustrations of the 25 36 range, actually show the 26 36
range encompassing the area of 30-degree North/South latitude to the poles
of the Sun.
relationships may be considered:
|25 / 36 = .69444444
||26 / 36 = .7222222222
of these relationships reflect historically significant numbers/fractals.
The not-so-obvious one concerns the Sothic number/fractal that we have
discussed in other essays: that of .693. And, again, adjustments
in computation could be effected thereof.
can imagine innumerable adjustments in the computations as of the relationships
given by the rotation of the Sun and its internal day-counts.
ancient reckoning system, based on the 260c day-count, and the
360c day-count, have always been considered to be errors in computation.
The ancient societies in which these day-counts appear, generally have
a strong cultural link to the Sun. Many scholars may continue to view
this as a mere coincidence of numbers, in that the Sun itself just happens
to reflect the two specific day-counts that the ancients chose for their
imagine these ancient calendrical systems to be based on the apparent
movement of the Earth's moon. Nothing is generally conceded in the way
of assigning any kind of scientific meaning to these ancient day-counts.
Given that our calendar of today is an Earth-bound calendrical system,
many scholars may not wish to consider the possibility that the ancients
may have been counting the days of the cited solar cycles (25c, 26c, 36c,
or 37c day-counts) due to the Sun's own internal rotation.
we have seen herein, however, one may readily employ the ancient calendrical
systems of the 260c and 360c day-counts, with respect to the rotation
of the Sun, along with many of the historically significant numbers/fractals.
In other words, the ancient calendrical systems serve the Sun well in
its own day-counts.

The Earth/matriX Thermodynamic Temperature Scale
Charles William Johnson
Ancient reckoning numbers reflect a historically significant fractal number
of 1.366. The relationship between the boiling and freezing points of
water is also a fractal expression of a 1.366 number. Random coincidence?
The author thinks not. Different thermodynamic temperature scales based
on unit one are derived and presented in an effort to overcome the incomparable
and difficult to manage numbers of the existing temperature scales. Also
learn what the square root of three has to do with the temperature scales
and the boiling/freezing points of water. By assigning either the boiling
or freezing points of water the unit 1.0, the different scales become
easily comparable, and the gradation scales become relevant for other
measurements such as the chemical and physical constants of matter-energy.
