Relativity for calendar systems differentiates Absolute vs. Relative
past. Absolute records in the common style of the era. Relative
translates to modern timekeeping. Cones and triangles describe NOW
moments ever widening as one approaches light speed. NOW
traverses all eternity and a single thought at the speed of light is
synonymous with infinity.
Absolute Calendar Relativity
The Absolute Calendar Relativity Timestream image applies to any
calendar system. The drawing is based upon the original Theory of
Relativity which includes equations and conceptual models.
Relativity diagrams usually show two adjacent triangles: one with
future light and other with past light describing funnels or cones
on paper. A point often describes NOW, where the triangles
intersect in 2-dimensions. NOW is sometimes represented by
an elastic time tunnel or “worm hole” idea.
Einstein recognized relationships exist between space and time.
Relativity diagrams depicting 3-dimensional orientation change the
triangles to Past and Future ‘Light Cones’. NOW becomes a
plane with the advantage of 3-D spatial rendering. Einstein
developed his famous E=MC2 equation by envisioning time as the 4th
dimension and assigning the variable ‘t’.
The Absolute Calendar Timestream Relativity drawing mixes
calendar science with traditional views. Actual calendar dates
are applied to relativity in this video series. I will first
cover the general case and later plug-in some calendar dates for
comparison. Building upon earlier timeemits' definitions for
Absolute Chronology vs. Relative Chronology, we first divide the
Absolute Timestream into: Absolute Past and Absolute Future. NOW
is the intersecting plane between these two light cones. NOW
is constantly moving forward. The modern Gregorian Calendar is
the Absolute Calendar, dotted and solid reference line.
Notice the blue and green dots next. These dots represent events
occurring along the Absolute Calendar Timestream. The blue dots
stand for determinate reality events that actually have occurred
in the Absolute Past or will occur in the Absolute Future. They
appear inside the two red cones. Within the Absolute Past
lightcone, recorded history fills the timestream with an
infinite number of blue dot events. Additionally, you have
personal memories which are likewise blue dot events and they
are infinite in array.
The Absolute Future lightcone displays determinate events that
will happen. Sunrise tomorrow is destined to be a blue dot. News
will carry stories, people will watch their computers and plan
accordingly. History has net yet been written. Whatever will
occur becomes a blue dot in the Absolute Future red cone.
As NOW moves forward, destined events are always subject
to change. The given blue dot event will take on another
character to represent something entirely different. Like a new
break on a pool table, expected events maybe sufficiently
randomized all over again. There are virtually infinite
combinations always occurring.
Green dot events are the by-product of altered blue dots. Green
dots stand for indeterminate reality. Their array is also
infinitely vast. Green dots never happen so they are positioned
outside of both red cones. They represent would have, should
have and could have results in both Absolute Past and Absolute
Futures. Green dot events are the empty spaces remaining after
the pool table balls stop rolling. When causality changes in the
absolute past, NOW administers a new green dot event and
a corresponding blue dot event occurs. Green dot indeterminate
reality events indicate alternative pasts that never occurred
and hence, alternative futures.
The Absolute Past Event Horizon is a follow-up idea from
previous relativity thinkers. We assign beginning to the
reference frame. Past Event Horizon starts measuring time
leading to NOW. The opposite end of the time reference
is the Absolute Future Event Horizon. Past and Future are
reversed 2-D triangles in the Relativity Timestream picture
below. The NOW plane has been widened to accommodate
visualization. Assume that NOW is the smallest whole
time denomination, or equal to 1 second for example. Let NOW
= dt = 1 second. Also assume the triangles point toward Past
infinity ∞ and Future infinity ∞ Event Horizons, respectively.
One second NOW moments can be lengthened to many days or
years using the modern calendar. Moment NOW is a day or
year, and finally the reference ending culminates with the
Absolute Future Event Horizon. Timestream parameters are
essential when we juxtaposition different calendars with
numerical reckoning. Past, NOW and Future parameters
serve to define the time frame.
mind's eye has a peculiar way of envisioning intangible time.
We can understand looking at the familiar 1 second NOW
moment. Infinity then is added to achieve maximum limits for
the time scale. Just try to imagine NOW stretching
beyond 1 second, let alone estimating infinity. Perception
begins to accelerate thought toward the speed of light. The
present NOW moment advances from a narrow sliver to
ever wider time frames. We strive to attach finite, fixed
references in terms of escalating segments. Look at a passing
second on your watch and instantly you think about greater
minutes, hours and so on. Assigning days, followed by years is
the next logical step. We access the calendar with
expectations of discovering time boundaries.
Absolute Calendar Relativity
Timestream: Julian to Gregorian
Julian to Gregorian Calendar Relativity picture begins the
Absolute Past Event Horizon when the AD Calendar Timestream
changes from the Julian version. Pope Gregory XIII instituted
his namesake calendar reform to correct the gradual drift of
Easter into summer. October 5-15 is the chosen starting date
for the Absolute Past Event Horizon. Ten days were actually
dropped from reckoning and a new plan was devised for
centennial leap years. Everything that would have normally
occurred during those ten days shifted from a blue dot event
to a green dot event outside the Absolute Past.
An arbitrary minus 400-years and plus 400-years has been
chosen for this reference time frame. Symmetry logically
places NOW in the center of an 800-year span, although
there are no requirements. Fixed history dating from 1582 AD
and projecting through 2382 AD contrasts with indeterminate
reality in the Absolute Future.
The Gregorian Calendar reform of 1582
altered future Christianity in many ways. Stabilizing
Easter immediately improved shipping and eventually the
Gregorian system was adopted by government and science
throughout Western culture. However, the spiritual
landscape of Christianity also changed. Growing resentment
toward Roman Catholicism in some parts of Europe led to
the birth of Protestantism. Blue dot determinate events
took place in Germany, England and France during the
sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. Forced calendar
reformation was viewed by many to be another dictate from
an oppressive church. After 400-years, Protestantism has
given the world Lutheran, Methodist and Presbyterian
denominations just to name a few.
Catholicism also divided into two separate groups. Some
adherents continued worship according the older Julian
calendar and are often referred to as Orthodox. Steadfast
Roman Catholicism enabled Gregorian reforms to spread
throughout the known world. Only by evaluating
determinate, blue dot events together with indeterminate,
green dot events can we appreciate the Absolute Calendar
Julian to Gregorian Timestream drawing easily substitutes
the Relative Julian Timestream line in place of the
Absolute Gregorian Timestream line. In this case, the
title reads Relative Calendar Timestream: Julian to
Gregorian. Reality, both blue dot and green events, does
not necessarily need to change. Documentation is the only
relevant issue. For example, historical figures wrote and
labeled the date OS for Old Style when they were using the
Julian calendar. New Style was denoted by the initials NS.
The only difference is largely due to a semantic role. Two
different calendars were practiced simultaneously.
Religious persuasion strongly affected which calendar
system people adopted. Time tends to dissolve any harsh
religious opinion surrounding the calendars. Modern views
assume a minor variation in Christianity and worship
philosophies. By 2382 AD, maybe Orthodoxy will keep the
Julian calendar, or let it become a footnote. The Absolute
Future is indeterminate indeed.
The Calendar Relativity Timestream is another tool to
reveal very divergent paths. Aspects of society are
objectively graphed as expanding or contracting over
lengthy calendar times. A seemingly insignificant calendar
anomaly potentially grows or reduces effects on a
population. Note the Absolute Future lightcone expanding
from NOW. Religious deviations, treaties and war
are traceable via lightcones. Absolute Past blue dot
events sometimes have final, dramatic outcomes. Emperor
Constantine magnified the Christendom lightcone by his
personal conversion and moving the Roman central
government in the fourth century The opposite
reaction also occurs. The Absolute Past lightcone
diminishes significant events toward obscurity. The
Spanish Inquisition is thankfully left behind. Long NOW
expanses of time are clearly involved in tandem with
A kind of velocity
has been reached on a long road defined by the calendar.
The departure point is 400-years past, we are traveling at
800-years per NOW. Our direction is Future toward
an upcoming destination 400-years away. The concept of NOW
starts bulging in the Past and Forward directions when
some percentage of lightspeed is attained. NOW is
perceived greater than 1 second; where NOW > 1
second. NOW distorts across the 1 second lapse.
Ideas about infinity have been replaced by quantifiable
The next Absolute Calendar Relativity Timestream drawing
develops over approximately 2,000-years of recorded
history. The Holy Roman Empire functioned as government
and spiritual center for subjects. The Absolute Past Event
Horizon begins 45 BCE when Julius Caesar implemented the
Egyptian solar calendar. Julius Caesar changed the
calendar from lunar/solar to solar in order to serve Roman
needs. The birth of Jesus Christ and the Christian
Era, became the grandest part of the Julian calendar.
Determinate blue dots events identify such profound
elements regarding history. We can barely imagine an
indeterminate world without Jesus or a solar
calendar. The NOW position is a matter of
interpretation and non-symmetrical with regard to the
Absolute Future lightcone.
The initial Absolute Past Event Horizon regresses to 45
BCE when Julius Caesar first made preparations to modify
the Roman calendar. The existing Roman lunar/solar was
frankly, all mixed up. The central government controlled
the calendar however, getting the message out to the
community was troublesome. Lunar/solar intercalations were
irregular and inconsistent across the empire. Expansion
toward the Holy Land introduced the Egyptian solar
calendar of 365-days. The solar calendar obliged Roman
citizens to observe equinoxes and solstices in concert
with prevailing religion. Subjugated villages gradually
assumed Roman allegiance, ensuing taxes and leader
The lunar/solar Absolute Past cone actually diminishes in
size and scope over the next four centuries. The Absolute
Future cone for the Julian calendar superimposes over the
lunar/solar system with reversed direction; larger going
forward. This opposing Roman generated solar, Absolute
Past lightcone influenced society with widening appeal.
The entire ministry of Jesus was recorded during the
shadow of Roman backdrop. Acts describes how the early
church grew, attempting to maintain Jewish Calendar
observance, while appeasing ruling authorities.
Determinate New Testament, blue dot reality events are
documented by the Absolute Julian Calendar and the
Absolute Jewish Lunar/Solar Calendar in effect back then.
Nearly every instance of early Christianity is adapted to
a relative chronology based upon present modern Absolute
Gregorian Calendar reckoning.
Increasing the time reference frame to spans of
2,000-years, 4000-years or beyond continues to extend NOW
to the boundary limits of consciousness. NOW
traverses all eternity and a single thought at the speed
of light is synonymous with infinity. NOW ceases
to change anything since NOW encompasses all
Any calendar existing contains an absolute record current
pertinent to the engaging civilization. Ever since Old
Kingdom Egyptians worshiped sun-god Ray, humans have
described eons of time respecting space. Ancient religious
astrology was foundational to studying starlight.
Scientists have estimated distances, size and ages within
the universe. Absolute solar calendars developed from
relative lunar/solar calendars. Lasting tenets from bygone
days have new found purpose.
Different forms of science bring relativity theories about
in different ways. Relativity has empowered science to
build many forms of modern technology. The speed of light
usually applies to microseconds and other fractionally
small units. Calendar science counters by expanding useful
time reference frames immensely in proportion. Two
distinct calendar changes leading humanity into the
Christian Era recognize that relativity is valid for
sociology and cultural study. Determinate events borne by
calendar change have ushered profound religious beacons.
Resultant effects cluster in patterns spurred by calendar
Eternity has always been the providence of God.
Two infinities shown above are essentially the same. Human
lifetimes are so infinitesimally short in comparison, all
else must identify with the afterlife. The Bible
says we are like blades of grass left to wither in
springtime. King or pauper, we are extensions of Him.
