We now know the age of this planet, so we do not
need to base our chronology on an arbitrary year such as the
birth of a prophet or messiah. However, it is convenient to align our
new chronology with Anno Domini or Common Era because most people now use
this way of counting years. Since we now know that civilisation
began some 12,000 years ago
and that this planet slowly formed some 4.55
billion years ago,
2000 ACE can be renumbered as: 4,550,012,000 WT or
000 WT for short.
Instead of counting forwards or backwards we would only count
began at a full-moon on
the vernal equinox in the year 2000 ACE.
It coincided with the very rare grouping of all five
the dawn of the zodiac age of Aquarius, and the dusk of
the age of Pisces.
So it was a major astronomical and astrological marker in Time.
Every civilisation had its own calendar with
different months and weeks.
The perpetual digital date calendar simply numbers
the days in the year beginning with 000 and ending with 364 or 365 in
customary leap years. These numbers drop into groups of ten, forming a
week instead of the continuous seven-day week now
The origins of the seven-day week are obscure but
it probably came from
the Sabians of Harran in Mesopotamia, who
worshipped seven sky-gods linked with seven heavenly bodies at seven
sacred temples in rotation. The creation in seven days and the
commandment to use seven-day weeks with only one day for rest,
recreation and religion are unsubstantiated. Holy days became
holidays and the holy sabbath became the weekend.
This may grow into
three unproductive days if politicians have their way. With ten-day
weeks every organisation would work 360 days every year. However, every
worker would only need to work for 180 days every year.
