HoH Secondary 800-Year Age of Adam

The Secondary Age Category entails thirteen 400-year Baktun Cycles in the vernacular of the Mayan Calendar. Each 400-year Baktun Cycle is the halfway, midpoint position for the entire Patriarch’s 800-year Generation Cycle. Adam’s first 400-year Baktun Cycle 1 in the Secondary Age Category also identifies with Adam's 130-years in the Primary Age Category. Named primary ages are written as Adam 130-Tun-years and named secondary ages refer as Adam 400-year Baktun Cycle 1. The end of Adam’s second 400-year Baktun Cycle 2, also Adam 400-year Baktun Cycle 2, completes the first 800-year Generation Cycle 1 in the Secondary Age Category. Color green text indicates active periods relevant to the Lunar/Solar 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle. Blue text indicates inactive periods for the same Lunar/Solar 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle in the table descriptions below.

Seth’s Secondary 807-year Generation Cycle 2 Age follows the same pattern. The third Seth 400-year Baktun Cycle 3 in the lineage is also Seth’s first 400-year Baktun Cycle 3 for the Secondary Age Category. At the halfway point, Seth’s primary 105-year Venus Round 3 age of solar-side time split ends simultaneously with Seth 400-year Baktun Cycle 3. The fourth 400-year Baktun Cycle 4 adds to the Secondary Age Category for Seth. Secondary age Seth 807-year Generation Cycle 2 finishes of the fourth, Seth 400-year Baktun Cycle 4. A final period lasting 7-Tzolken-sacred-years, or about 1,820-days, adds the last primary age 5-Ethiopic-years according to the 364-day-Ethiopic-year. The 364-day-Ethiopic-year adds exactly 7-Tzolken-sacred-years from the last 5-Ethiopic-years in Seth’s primary 105-year Venus Round 3 age. Later generations utilize similar 5-Ethiopic-year tags in describing multiple Venus Rounds. The right table column Solar-Side 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle shows red text and graphics for active solar-side information and blue text and graphics for inactivity.

Lunar/Solar 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle panel on the left side of the table below begins the Secondary Age Category. Adam Secondary Age 800-Year Generation Cycle 1 figure shows division for two 400-Year Baktun Cycles. Adam names 400-Year Baktun Cycle 1 in green text and 400-Year Baktun Cycle 2 in blue text. Two types of Venus Rounds (VR) underneath correspond as VR 1 in green text and VR 2 in blue text. Capital S stands for solar-side reckoning of a lunar/solar 400-Y Baktun Cycle time split.

Mayan & Egyptian table version S 104-Y VR 1 employs a 104-Year Venus Round and Jewish table version S 105-Y VR 1 identifies with 105-Year Venus Rounds. Solar-side 104-Y or 105-Y Venus Rounds are significant for later character primary ages. An identical lunar-side, L 104-Year is shown to illustrate the dividing time split concept. All Secondary Age Generation Cycles 1-6 are comprised of two 400-year Baktun Cycles numbered from 1 to 13. Corresponding 104-Y or 105-Y Venus Rounds are likewise numbered 1 to 13.

Solar-Side column shows Seth 400-year Baktun Cycle 3 and Seth Solar 104-year or 105-year Venus Round 3 as active, red text. Mayan & Egyptian tables refer to 104-Y VR and Jewish tables refer to 105-Y VR. Solar 104-Y or 105-Y Venus Rounds were the ancient measurement tool used to count 20 multiples of 20-year lunar/solar cyclesMayan & Egyptian and Jewish versions both count 400-year Baktun Cycles. The Mayan & Egyptian version divides equally for 104-years of solar-side and 104-years of lunar-side time split. The Jewish version results in 105-years of solar-side and 105-years of lunar-side time split. Venus Rounds lasting 104-years or 105-years are considered the solar-side primary age half resulting from 400-year Baktun Cycles. Lunar/Solar and Solar-Side 260-Tzolken-sacred-cycles are used to figure later Antediluvian Calendar ages. Examples are given for comparison.

The 5200-year Great Cycle is a variation of the Long Count Initial Series. Formerly developed in conjunction with the Dresden Codex, the Long Count begins with the presumed Mayan Creation date, noted as The most significant digits on the left are Baktuns (400-years), next are Katuns (20-years), Tuns (360-days), Uinals (20-days), and Kins (days). The Long Count measures 13 Baktuns, or 5200-Tun-years. Therefore, conjecture rationalizes at least 12 Baktuns and possibly 13 Baktuns to have elapsed prior to the onset of the Long Count. The Great Cycle, on the other hand, introduces a cyclic calendar system whereby 5200-Tun-years repeat to mirror the 52-year Calendar Round. The Secondary Age Category cumulatively adds to achieve 5200-Tun-years, or as some historians agree, 5200-Haab-years in a Mayan Great Cycle. The Great Cycle generally associates with 5200-Tun-years having 360-days each. Depending on the context used, some opinions favor the 365-day-Haab-solar-year. The special treatment of Wayeb 5-feast days between the 360-day-Tun-year and the 365-day-Haab-solar-year is usually part of Long Count projections.
The Antediluvian Calendar system applies 13 steps of 400-year Baktun Cycles to describe the 5200-year Great Cycle from Adam to Enoch. Six 800-year Generation Cycles extend the Secondary Age Category to represent the lives of six biblical Patriarchs. Six secondary ages measure time since fatherhood until the character’s death. Adam, Seth, Enos, Cainan, Mahalaleel and Jared each increment the Secondary Age Category total by two sequential 400-year Baktun Cycles. The secondary age of Adam is 800-year Generation Cycle 1 in Genesis 5:4. Seth 807-year Generation Cycle 2 expresses additional time in terms of seven 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years. Seth Secondary 807-year Generation Cycle 2 Age includes 800-year Generation Cycle 2, plus 7-Tzolken-sacred-years (Genesis 5:7).

Holy_of_Holies Antediluvian Calendar Tables display pictures supplemental to the text. The sawtooth drawing above shows two solar-side time split Mayan & Egyptian 104-Year Venus Rounds for Adam. Adam 400-Year Baktun Cycle 1 generates Adam's first solar-side Mayan & Egyptian Solar 104-Year Venus Round 1 (S 104-Y VR 1). Note the green triangle on the upper left with color coded green text. Green text signifies Adam 400-Y Baktun Cycle 1 is active in producing Adam S 104-Y VR 1. Mayan & Egyptian 104-Year Venus Rounds synchronize 400-Year Baktun Cycles with the synodic, visible cycle of planet Venus. Two Mayan & Egyptian 52-Year Calendar Rounds add for each 104-Year Venus Round. Two Jewish 50-Year Jubilee Cycles add for 100-Ethiopic-years in each Jewish 105-Year Venus Round. The bright evening and morning star completes an 8-solar-year course 13 different times in the Mayan & Egyptian 104-year Venus Round.

Jewish Antediluvian Calendar Table version refers to the biblical adaptation 105-year Venus Round. Jewish Adam S 105-Y VR 1 replaces Mayan & Egyptian Adam S 104-Y VR 1 to indicate the Jewish version. Adam S 105-Y VR 2 follows similar naming convention. Adam's second 400-Year Baktun Cycle 2 is the inactive latter half of Adam 800-Year Generation Cycle 1. Jewish Adam S 105-Y VR 2 is also inactive and subdivides later primary ages in the Lunar/Solar 260-year Tzolken-sacred-cycle. Alternatively, Mayan & Egyptian Antediluvian Calendar version likewise shows Adam S 104-Y VR 2 generates during Adam 400-Year Baktun Cycle 2. Adam profiles first in the Lunar/Solar 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle.

Adam 400-Year Baktun Cycle 1
generates Jewish Adam S 105-Y VR 1. Numerical matching properties of the 364-day-Ethiopic-year allow Mayan & Egyptian S 104-Y VR 1 to multiply by 1.25-days. Adam's primary age 130-Days & 130-Years follows matching concepts. Adam S 105-Y VR 2 results in 130-Days & 130-Years to finish Adam 800-Year Generation Cycle 1. Seth S 105-Y VR 3 in red text on the right is a solar-side character.

The Holy Bible commits the bulk of this Holy_of_Holies to exploring given ages for the Antediluvian Patriarchs from Enos to Enoch. Ages_of_Adam harvests calendar information from several known sources. The Jewish Calendar, Egyptian Calendar and Measoamerican Calendars assist to discern fundamental requisites of lunar/solar calendar operations. Enhancing our view of ancient time recording, additional materials from the Book of Jubilees, the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Book(s) of Enoch and mythological inferences compile for better awareness about ancient calendar systems. Styles of writing and the consistency of meanings are useful in dating ancient texts. The purpose here is to extract pertinent fragmentary evidence offered by ancient writings to facilitate reconstruction of the oldest calendar system.
Supplementary literature serves our calendar interests. Original Septuagint texts translate to compose most of the canonical Holy Bible. The Septuagint is aptly noted LXX, for the legendary seventy or so scholars involved. Ptolemy II (285–247 BCE.) requested six translators from each of the twelve tribes of Israel to work at the library at Alexandria. They translated the first five books of Moses, or the Torah. The Pentateuch is the same name in Greek. Most scholars estimate the latter part of the third century for scripture translations into Greek. We are far more interested in the information disseminated in the text rather than every jot, yod or tittle (Matthew 5:18). In English, this compares to crossing the t’s and dotting the i’s. We can rest assured diligent care was exercised by Septuagint translators in creating Greek rendition(s) of the Bible. According to the Letter of Aristeas, the Jerusalem high priest, Eleazar, was to appoint trained Jewish sages to generate precise translations.
Noteworthy resources embrace various stages of correspondence with several collections attributed to be authentically Septuagint. A survey of the similarities and differences yields more specific calendar information targeted toward resolving the ages listed in chapter 5 of Genesis. Contributing texts are placed against the background of accepted calendar systems. Several Apocryphal (false writings and non-canonical) also came to light between 100 BCE. and 300 AD.
Striking 100-year differences exist between Antediluvian Septuagint calendar ages and those respective ages in the traditional Bible. A contrasting first 100-years of difference exists between the primary age of Adam, as reputed by the Septuagint, and the accepted 130-year primary age in later Holy Bible versions. The Septuagint mentions the primary age of Adam to be 230-years at Seth’s birth. The Septuagint’s primary 230-year age of Adam departs from a wider set of l/s calendar terms, which indicate Septuagint translators were working with discrete 100-years terms. Persistent 100-year differences between the Bible Genesis 5 and Septuagint leads one to distinguish 100-years stood alone in the script.
Evidence traced from the Septuagint suggests that 100-years are an isolated term. Associated numerical matching of X-days with X-years bolsters a more comprehensive schema that situates the difference between the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle and the 360-year midpoint (Tun) type of cycle. Mayan Calendar terminology exchanges equivalent 260-year-Tzolken-sacred cycles and 360-year-Tun-cycles. Important consideration selecting a 100-days & years single term graphically determines the difference between 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years and 360-day-Tun-years to formulate larger frames of 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycles and 360-year-Tun-cycles. A distinct 100-year term is visible in multiple translated Jewish texts.

Primary age emphasis measures from the characters’ beginning to the primary age time at fatherhood. In the popular Holy Bible, Seth’s primary 105-year age revises to be 205-years in the Septuagint. Scrutiny of the primary 105-year Venus Round 3 age of Seth (S 105-Y VR 3) reinforces the notion that the 100-year portion was likely a 100-days & years single term and 5-Ethiopic-years shared the very same treatment. Offset and distinct, 5-Ethiopic-years refers to a special 5-days & years single term. Ending the 360-day-Tun-year with the special 5-day Wayeb period agrees with ending a 360-year-Tun-cycle with an outstanding terminal 5-year Wayab. Seth’s final primary age 5-Ethiopic-years or 1,820-days, link with 7-Tzolken-sacred-years in his secondary age. Further numerical matching of 364-day-Ethiopic-years and 364-year-Ethiopic-cycles is integral to resolving whole number integers for solar-side Seth, Cainan and Jared.

One must revert to the older versions, as translated from Torah, to give proper credit to the Holy Bible. Modern English versions of the Holy Bible and study aids often better preserve original settings cast by the Torah. The Greek Septuagint did a more accurate job of translating spiritual underpinnings as opposed to precise numbers. Modern word searches and the capabilities of the Internet enable exhaustive searching.

Septuagint translators had access to Torah scrolls and other manuscripts that modern people may never know. Fire partially destroyed the library at Alexandria when Julius Caesar laid siege to the city in 48 BCE. The Septuagint was the first canon in the Greek before the New Testament. Books and parts of books were included in the canon. Greek editions of the Hebrew Bible in many different languages aided the spread of Christianity. Some early churches rejected Apocryphal and related works. Septuagint research through all stages, amplifications and modifications is a separate study. Every language and even dialect has particular meanings and interpretations akin to itself. New translations and revisions are undergoing development to this day.
The Septuagint mainstream copies generational flow similar to Genesis 5. Adam's 800-year Generation Cycle 1 secondary age, stretching from fatherhood until death, also mutates regarding 700-years in the Septuagint. Primary and secondary ages of Adam are offset by 100-years. Identical 100-year deviations between the sacred texts affect later characters in the Secondary Age Category. Mesoamerican l/s calendar ages were ideally fixed for both 130-years as half of the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle, and the 400-year Baktun Cycle as half of the larger Adam 800-year Generation Cycle 1.
Original Hebrew texts maintained accuracy in keeping with Mesoamerican Calendar style. Specific calendar units of measurement show the principal time reckoning ingredients embedded as bits and pieces. Differences lasting 100-years continue throughout the remaining Septuagint genealogy. Seth for example, has 205-years in the Primary Age Category when Enos is born. A Septuagint Secondary 707-year Age for Seth likewise indicates a 100-year shortfall from the Holy Bible account. Both cases for Adam and Seth eventually sum their total lifetimes: 930-years for Adam and 912-years for Seth.

Stringent rules for recopying Torah scrolls have always been in effect. Asserted in Deuteronomy 4:2 and 31:24-26, divine instructions must preserve all scriptures intact. Words or meanings cannot be added or removed. Stewardship of the scriptures was granted to the Levite priesthood. The New Testament later affirms the “oracles of God” are committed to the Jewish people (Romans 3:2).

Earliest scriptures designed to protect the sanctity and original meanings inherent to the Hebrew Bible determine the copy practices of the Levite priesthood. Chosen Levites were to make new copies of the Bible as older copies wore out. Meticulous rules were developed for transcribing text. Every page needs to be an exact duplicate, word for word, and letter by letter. Counting numbers of words and/or letters per page permitted comparisons to the original text. Up to three people eventually were required to make a copy. A copyist sat in full Jewish dress, accompanied by at least two others tasked with checking the manuscript for errors. Safeguarding the Sacred Text enabled the acclaimed “fence to the scriptures.” Words and letters remained locked into position. A single mistake caused the entire work to be destroyed and the whole process to be started over.
Temple Scriptures rested inside the Ark of the Covenant in the Holy of Holies. The increasing Jewish population used the same methods for worship and observance wherever they settled. Levite scribes continued to painstakingly duplicate and distribute copies. The Masoretic text of the 9th century CE seems to be a standard of authenticity for biblical scholars. Observing technical terminology and relevant style helps to date scrolls and other written information. The last Old Testament Prophet and scribe, Ezra is said to have fixed the canon of the Old Testament about 400 BCE. Masoretic text also refers to later versions that date between 500 - 1000 CE. The moral to this condensed story is to realize due precautions have been observed to ensure the highest degree of content and meaning are conveyed by the new copy. Early pathways of the Holy Bible tell the story of Judaism and the calendar practices of ancient civilization.
Examination of 100-years in divergence precludes simple editorial corruption concerning frequency and deliberate variations of the Antediluvian ages. The 100-day & year single term begins to take on new meaning. Two separate components of 50-year Jubilee Cycle(s) from Leviticus add together to report the 100-day & year single term. Sabbath periods of 7-weeks having 50-days are celebrated by the Jewish Calendar festivals of Passover and Counting the Omer that leads to Shav’ot. King James Version (KJV), New International Version (NIV) and many other versions have corrected any Septuagint errors to reflect original Hebrew.
The Hebrew alphabet is a language and numbering system. Translating numbers into Latin, Greek and finally English combines the numerical value and unit. Two passes of the Jubilee Cycle 50-day & year single term, rather than 100-years, substantially alters our interpretation of the Antediluvian ages. Original Hebrew documents such as The Book of Jubilees and the Book(s) of Enoch counted the number of time cycle repetitions or addressed specific days and months during the year. Counting Jubilees as either 49-years or 50-years has been a point of controversy in scholarly circles. Sabbath 7-day weeks and 7-year-weeks involve the lunar-side of l/s calendars. Many works mention a decree proclaiming heavenly tablets held written calendar information.
The Book of Jubilees, or the Book of Divisions, is another sacred historical text introduced earlier in Ages_of_Adam. Most likely written in the 2nd century BCE, The Book of Jubilees is a historical account from Creation to Moses. The narrative divides Jubilee periods into 49-years in a familiar story comparable to Genesis. The only complete version of The Book of Jubilees is Ethiopian. Large sections survive in Latin and Greek.
