Antediluvian Patriarch 800-year Generation Cycles form the secondary
age lunar/solar category. Adam lived 800-years after he begat Seth.
The Mesoamerican Calendar doubles 400-years for 800-years. Enoch in
the Holy Bible used a 364-day-calendar-year. Numerical matching
modifies the Mayan 104-year Venus Round for the biblical primary
105-year age of Seth. Twenty multiples of 20-year Katun lunar/solar
cycles amount to the Mayan 400-year Baktun cycle.
Mesoamerican Calendars of the Aztec, Inca and Maya cultures
inclusively are labeled Mesoamerican Calendars for technical
purposes by timeemits. Earlier Ages_of_Adam
material identifying Sun Kingdoms’ Calendars is appropriately
updated in the Holy_of_Holies.
South and Central American people also included many other subgroups
such as Mixtec, Toltec and Izzapans. Individual gods and names
varied widely across the Mesoamerican pantheon. Operations of the
calendar tended to stay consistent throughout. A 360-day-Tun-year
and a 260-day-Tzolken-year were the primary time keeping
instruments. Mesoamerican Calendars expand with prolific adaptation
of 360-year-Tun-cycles and 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycles. Patterns
of the Antediluvian Calendar recorded in Genesis 5 for the lineage following applies this
reckoning for the primary age category. Each character listed in the
calendar chain has time until he fathers the son. Hence, the primary
age notes the first age recorded for each character. All primary
ages taken together form the primary age category. For example, Genesis 5:3 tells us Adam lives
130-years until his son, Seth is born. Adam becomes the first entry
in the Antediluvian Calendar Table of figure 1.
The begat genealogy following Adam lists a secondary age from the
time of fathering the son, until the character’s death. Adam lives
for 800-years following the birth of Seth. The secondary age
category is total lunar/solar time, denoted here “l/s”, and includes
all Patriarchs in successive order. The original 19-year-l/s-cycle
of the Jewish Calendar modifies to become a 20-year-l/s-cycle
regarding the Mesoamerican Calendars. Multiples of
20-year-l/s-cycles form the secondary age category. Each year in the
20-year-l/s-cycle was a 360-day-Tun-year. Mayan terminology employs
the prefx “Ka” in the word Katun that describes one
20-year-Katun-cycle. Twenty multiples of the 20-year-Katun-cycle
permits the Mayan prefix “Bak” to describe a 400-year-Baktun-cycle.
Increments of 400-year-Baktun-cycles counted the secondary ages for
all characters in the Antediluvian Calendar.
The next logical step to recording time was to double the
400-year-Baktun-cycle. Abraham's covenant with the Lord relates to a 400-year span
in Genesis 15:13-16, with
literal Hebrew definitions arising from the presence of ancestry.
The next age bracket advances the l/s calendar to the 800-year era.
Twice the 400-year-Baktun-cycle measures the 800-year Generation
Cycle. Calendar references for the "begat" genealogy following Adam
affix 800-year Generation Cycles to each named character’s secondary
age category. Actions of doubling and halving time interval tools
discovered from associated calendars yield a repeating order. The
procedure of God coming
between and dividing time continues further lunar/solar separations.
"And the days of Adam after he
had begotten Seth were eight hundred years: and he begat sons
Adam lived for 800-years in a full Generation Cycle following the
birth of Seth. The secondary 800-year age of Adam arises from two
successive 400-year-Baktun-cycles of the ancient Mesoamerican
Calendar. The 400-year-Baktun-cycle holds the most significant
position of the Mayan Long Count Initial Series or 5200-year Great
Cycle. Mesoamerican dating usually depends upon the Great Cycle with
13 different 400-year-Baktun-cycles. The secondary age category adds
400-year increments for each major l/s event. This work applies the
800-year Generation Cycle to describe the time following the birth
of Seth until the death of Adam.
Critical points in the primary age category coincide with
400-year-Baktun-cycle transitions. The 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle
halves to chronicle the primary 130-year age of Adam. At this
primary age category critical point, the 400-year-Baktun-cycle
doubles to get 800-years in the secondary age of Adam. Each
400-year-Baktun-cycle adds to the secondary age category “l/s” year
total. Additions that extend the length of the l/s calendar required
changing the masculine solar-side of lunar/solar separation time.
Simply doubling the primary 130-year age of Adam would have resulted
in the original 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle. A different method
needs to record the next layer of the calendar.
The scriptures chose to show the next masculine, solar-side of time
projection as the primary 105-year age of Seth. By doubling the
400-year-Baktun-cycle, we get the secondary 800-year age of Adam.
The primary age of Adam halves a 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle. The
secondary age doubles the 400-year-Baktun-cycle to achieve
800-years. Seth’s distinctive 105-year solar-side time split is half
of the solar-side 210-years time split. After Adam's 800-year
secondary age, the complete 210-years of solar-side separation time
divide in half for 105-years. Numerical matching coins 105-days and
105-years in a 105-days-and-years single term to be the primary age
of Seth. Dividing the primary age 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle in
half simultaneously begins the second 400-year-Baktun-cycle in the
secondary age category.
Baktun cycles having 400-years increment the secondary age category
and synchronize the primary ages. Corresponding primary age category
elements of the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle interleave with
solar-side time splits. Adam’s first half of the
260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle is followed by Seth’s first half of
solar-side time split. Secondary age 800-year Generation Cycles
repeat for each Patriarch from Adam through Jared.
Ideas of God dividing and
coming between lunar and solar separation times transfer to people
with other ordained principles. The mirror image of God was man. Pharaohs and kingly
leaders of the ancient world mediate between the heavenly realm in
the afterlife and mortal humanity below. God and man together conformed to notions of
masculine, sun-side reckoning for lunar/solar time. The sky-father
concept carries forth by assigning a lesser deity rule to past
monarchs. Personal pronoun names and the generic literal meanings
combine to explain characters such as Adam. Early theology
substitutes monarchs, deities and other character names for specific
In literal Hebrew and English, the name of Adam applies in two ways.
The generic man exists in the mortal sense. Adam also recognizes the
personal pronoun name for a deified king patriarch type of
character. Working along these lines, synchronism between two types
of years had to be developed. First, there was the agricultural
260-day sacred year. Secondly, a midpoint 360-day type of year was
halfway between lunar and solar years. The 360-day midpoint length
of year helped measure the time of God
coming between and separating greater differences involved with
The 800-year Generation Cycle dominated the lineage following Adam.
Once the secondary 800-year age of Adam had completed to produce the
primary 105-year age of Seth, another 800-year Generation Cycle adds
to continue the pattern. Through the genealogy following Adam, i.e.
Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel, and Jared, each secondary age
incorporates an 800-year Generation Cycle. Based on actual heavenly
observations, this time had to pass to properly record later
lunar/solar time splits found in the Holy Bible.

The oldest written calendar information in the world penetrates into
the past extreme. We are using the ancient Jewish, Egyptian and
Mesoamerican calendars in braided fashion to develop the oldest
trunk line of calendar science ever known. To put this material in
better perspective, we should pause for a moment to grasp the
magnitude of this discovery.
About 5,000 years ago, or 3,000 BCE, early Egyptians were
experimenting with stepped pyramid building. Djoser’s Step Pyramid
at Saqqara and Ziggurats have resemblance to later Mesoamerican
stepped pyramids. Later ruling dynasties would modify their
architecture to the sloped pyramid. The Great Pyramid of Cheops is a
wonder of the ancient world and the most famous of the sloped
pyramids. Wooden or reed sailing vessels may have served passage for
people to carry the calendar to the New World and settle near the
Yucatan Peninsula. Many are the Mayan ruins and others that support
a link across the ocean so long ago. Pyramid facades and temple
entrances show evidence of similar decoration. Stelae, standing
stones and sacred pillars often mentioned in the Old Testament indicate religious
and social connections. The custom of carving stone pillars for
writing, glyph pictures and preserving calendar records was common
throughout Central and South America.
Sacred writings tend to mix calendar recognition with the afterlife.
Life after death is a cultural belief practiced from the ancient
world through modern times. Proper respect for the dead is a
religious behavior imperative. Abel’s blood crying out from the
ground is our first scriptural evidence of burial having spiritual
ties (Genesis 4:10). Eternal
spirits in the heavenly realm are detached from calendar time
We know the story about Moses and the Exodus by the Israelites from
Egyptian bondage. Moses grew up in the house of the Pharaoh and
certainly had access to past Egyptian calendar information (Exodus 2:9-10). Egyptian temple
initiates trained in the secret operations of the calendar. Priestly
neophytes participated in special rituals. Both Hebrew and Egyptian
religions monitored exactly who knew what regarding the deeper
mysteries of the calendar. Mesoamerican lore preserves an abundance
of calendar ceremonial rites. Leviticus
tells the story of the revelation at Mt. Sinai, Jubilee Years and
instructions for keeping sacred feasts and festivals. The Jewish Ordo de Secretis
Intercalationis endorses the secret order of calendar
intercalations. Given the sanctity of keeping Sabbath and other
holidays as holy, calendar information is sacred.
Enoch achieves the status of Metatron following his transfiguration
mentioned in Genesis 5: 24
and Hebrews 11:5.
Perception of the spirit world combines bits and pieces of calendar
data with dual philosophies toward heaven and hell. Enoch 3
encapsulates angelology with imagery. The significant number 72
connects angels and heavenly princes. Raphatiel is the prince
appointed over the constellations and accompanied by 72 great and
honored angels (Ch. XVII:6-7). There are also 72 princes in the
kingdoms of the world (Ch. XXX). Other references point to the
righteous Metatron’s 72 wings. Subordinate to the Holy One, vast
numbers measure 354 thousand (parasangs) for the moon and 365,000
(myriads of) ministering angels for the sun (Ch. XVII:5-7).
Numerical relationships written into the angelology of Enoch appear
as metaphors, exactly like Egyptian mythology. For the other
Patriarchs, ending the secondary age brought death. Death launched
the afterlife continuity for humans and gods.
Majesty in the heavens is complete at the four heads of four fiery
rivers. There are 7 heavens and 49 costly stones in the royal crown
which shines the light of the sun globe (Ch. 12:3). The ultimate
Holy One is seated upon the Throne of Glory. Two great princes serve
as keepers to write the book of the living and the book of the dead.
Enoch 3 is full of colorful metaphors that predominately associate
with continuous weekly Sabbaths. The brilliance of Shekina has 1,000
times the brilliance of the sun. A dark cloud veils Shekina to
shield mortal people from the blinding light.
Enoch 2 and Enoch 3 define physical astronomy rather than
concentrating on relevant heavenly visions. Operation of the 364-day
Enochian year integrates closely with Mesoamerican and Egyptian
calendar formats. Evangelical fire and brimstone mimic Enoch 3.
Sabbath Days and Sabbath year-weeks conform to guidelines
established by the Holy One. Lunar months having 29-days or 30-days
expand to 29-years or 30-years in a month of numerically matched
years. The potential exists to isolate 800-year Generation Cycles in
each secondary age from the total secondary age. Birth, death and
Enoch’s translation outline all three works of Enoch. A lifetime
365-solar-year age suggests factors that influenced early calendars.
The Enochian Sect was only one group of Jewish believers.
Geographically speaking, the 364-day-Ethiopic-year covered a larger
area and certainly included more people. According to Dr. Aberra
Molla, Ethiopian people were using the 364-day-Ethiopic-Calendar
perhaps as early as 5493 Ethiopian BC. The 364-day-Ethiopic-calendar
was the parent calendar for the Jewish version and Mesoamerican
variations. In order to reconstruct the oldest Antediluvian Calendar
we have to borrow terminology and teaching from the Mesoamericans.
Calculations involving the primary 105-year age of Seth exactly
figure 147-Tzolken-sacred-years. Whole number integers were
customary for ancient calendar reckoning. The scenario numerically
matching 105-days-and-years in a single term for Seth fosters a
Judaic version and a Mayan version. Both systems associated the
104-year Venus Round with the character we call Seth. The Judaic
version recorded the primary 105-year age of Seth. Mayans divided a
104-year Venus into two 52-year Calendar Rounds. The Judaic version
divided the 105-year variation according to two 50-year Jubilee
Cycles. The last 5-years having 364-days each equal
7-Tzolken-sacred-years or 1,820-days. Seven Tzolken-sacred-years add
with the second 800-year Generation Cycle for Seth using a
Religious attitudes toward agriculture derive from the calendar.
Feast, famine, planting and harvesting depended upon the seasons.
Movement of celestial light and dark objects formed the rungs of the
calendar ladder. The Babylonian calendar compares with the Jewish in
early periods. Dual Jewish and Babylonian monthly names are shared
with the Metonic 19-year Jewish Calendar. The state of agricultural
products, special conditions, weather and prevailing astronomical
opinions had impact upon the calendar.
Early ages in the dawn of civilization need definite chronology or a
presently known dating system. Nomadic hunters and seed gatherers
began to develop culture, settling into small communities. Some
20,000 years ago in lands east of the Mediterranean Sea, the
diversity of culture was spreading. An agricultural community arose
in the "Fertile Crescent" portion of the world. Social graduation to
using seasons of planting and harvesting was historically comparable
with the advent of specialized labors. Rich soil of the locale and
the availability of a fresh water supply permitted the land to be
cultivated for crops. The eastern Mediterranean coastline
supplemented human diet with an easy harvest. Greek writers later
knew the fertile region between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates as
Mesopotamia. Literally, the area was "between the rivers" to the
Greeks. Biblical geography has aided historical science. Scripture
reports l/s calendar eras with extraordinary language and meaning
adequate for classical science.
The Mediterranean coastlands supported agriculture. Mild winters,
fertile soil and the autumnal rainy season provided ideal growing
conditions. People lived near the exalted "Garden of Eden" all year
long. Maturation of the societies blended the ability to share
cumulative knowledge gained, pass this resultant knowledge down to
their children and engage in deductive reasoning that allowed the
group to acquire skills. Humankind had satisfied basic needs of
food, clothing and shelter to logically plan. Citizens gravitated
into small groups to aid one another and became dependent on
specialized vocations. The agricultural economy developed into city
life, complete with a variety of labor divisions. These techniques
of social grid work provided mastery of increasingly complex skills.
Civilization was beginning to evolve.

Historians generally agree that agriculture had begun roughly 10,000
BCE - 8,000 BCE in that part of the world called Mesopotamia.
Domesticated sheep and cattle also existed during this time. The
scriptures mention that Abel kept sheep and Cain was a tiller of the
ground (Genesis 4:2).
Initial confirmation adheres to the need for an accurate calendar in
order to establish planting and harvesting times during the year.
Three agricultural festivals that date from the Exodus are the
Festival of Unleavened Bread, Feast of Tabernacles and the Feast of
First Fruits. Optimizing crop production would be the effective goal
of a precise calendar.
The Jewish Jubilee calendar year included two growing seasons that
ended in harvest celebrations. Five days after the Day of Atonement,
the fifteenth day of Tishri celebrates a 7-day festival called the
Feast of Tabernacles, or Sukkot (Leviticus
23:34, Deuteronomy 16:13-16). Seven days commemorate the
forty years that the children of Israel wandered in the desert
following the Exodus from Egypt. The temporal nature of life gives
reason to erect temporary shelters, wherein eating at least one meal
per day in the Sukkah honors God's
provisions. The whole family decorates the Sukkah booth with fruits
and vegetables. Partial walls and roof admit sunlight and provide
shaded areas. Later observances converted this Festival of
Ingathering harvest celebration into a historical festival. Also
called the Feast of Trumpets, Tabernacles was the only feast with
specific instructions to rejoice. The lulav (branches of four
species) and the etrog (citron) are traditional wave offerings. The
Feast of Booths marks thanksgiving for the fruit and grain harvest.
Grapes for wine, barley and wheat were the crops gathered. Coming at
completion of the entire harvest, the shofar blast heralds the
second bounty in the modern calendar year.
Fifty days after the Passover anniversary celebrating the night of
the Exodus is the Feast of First Fruits (Numbers 28:26). Known as the springtime feast
holiday Shavu'ot, the festival occurs during the Jewish month of
Sivan (Esther 8:9). English
translation adapts the word sometimes to Shav'ot, Sabbouth or
Shabout. Seven weeks of seven days determines the name Feast of
Weeks for same festival and the transition day from the sixth to the
seventh day in the month of Sivan. Sivan is the third month of the
sacred festival year, and the ninth month of the modern Jewish
Calendar year. The sixth of Sivan honors Shavu'ot for a single day
only in Israel. Elsewhere, the sixth and seventh days of Sivan
observe Shavu'ot. The 50-day lapse between the two festivals
represents the complete 50-year lunar calendar of Moses. God ordained Shavu'ot to
celebrate the revelation at Mt. Sinai. This holiday marks the
anniversary of giving God's
teachings to Moses. God
gave the Hebrews the first Five Books of Moses, which are called the
Torah in Judaism, or the Pentateuch by Greek terminology. Shavu'ot
emphasizes the Torah with the use of dairy products.
The early agricultural society ended the waiting period for the
harvest. Most likely predating the Exodus, Counting the Sheaves for
fifty days culminated with the first fruits of spring. Farmers
brought the first fruits of the land to the Temple. Rejoicing in the
bounty of the grain harvest marked the end of the 50-day interval.
Decorating with flowers, green plants, fruits and vegetables are
part of the tradition for the spring season. Avoiding meat and the
use of leather goods reminds Jewish people to preserve living things
during Shavu'ot. With the destruction of the second Temple in 70
BCE, the agricultural ritual of the first fruits became symbolic.
The encounter at Mt. Sinai became the focus of the festival.
The Old Testament calendar
system used differences between the lunar year provided by 12-months
of new moons and solar years measured against the stars. The Great
Flood sealed evidence of a vast floating chronology. The traditions
and folklore of Mesopotamia deeply embed the calendar system based
on the sun, moon and stars as natural timekeepers. Sometime prior to
about 3,000 BCE this calendar centers geographically near the
ancient city of Byblos. Trees likely held lunar month carvings that
later transferred to vertical stone columns. The stationary marker
sited motions of the heavens and recorded them for later
generations. The typical concept is that a small pocket of
civilization evolved ahead of surrounding cultures, probably from
Sumerian roots and moved southward into the Sinai Peninsula and
Before Abraham led the Hebrews away from Ur and King Menes united
the two lands of Egypt, the calendar of Genesis reveals several thousand years. Ages
recorded for the Antediluvian Patriarchs from Adam through Jared
entailed two distinct categories of lunar/solar timekeeping. The
primary age category references the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred cycle.
Halves and quarters of the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle denote the
time until the character fathers, or starts, the next named
character. The secondary age category references 13 successive
400-year-Batun-cycles. Baktun cycles count from 1 to 13 in multiples
of two 400-year-Baktun-cycles that measure one 800-year Generation
Cycle. The last thirteenth Baktun cycle signifies the end of the
5200-year Great Cycle. Enoch’s transfiguration of 300-years in the
secondary age category culminates the Great Cycle of 13 x
400-year-Baktun-cycles. The final lifetime 365-solar-year age of
Enoch shows a pronounced transition from the 12-lunar-month year to
365-day-solar-years. The identical l/s pattern carries forward to
