Next to pragmatical-political clock-time there are different calendars on the planet grossly to be divided in sun and moon calendars. Although these differences are a matter of conviction, which should not be politically imposed or changed, is it still of interest to the policy of individual self-realization to think about developing an order of time that can contribute to a better world order. This article deals with the mondial opposition of cultural timerespect. It stresses the importance of a conscious dualistic and holistic approach that does justice to all legal, religious and profane claims of time-management. The resulting full calendar of order is discussed as an ideal contribution to a solution for the problem of time management of the New World Order. Prepare for the New World Order, we can only vote for what exists!

 1: Sunnies and Moonies.

At the end of the year 1999 I bought myself a new calendar: the year 2000 in print. I was pleased to have this calendar as I noticed that something was restored with it. The calendar I bought the year before was not available anymore: it was a handy type of week by week calendar that was fixed on a black plastic board so it could be hung and be written on. It had only one little defect: it did not show the phases of the Moon. Although at the time I had no special interest in the Moon it nevertheless struck me as an example of cultural impoverization. It was at the time of the war in Kosovo. But that handy plastic board was not available anymore this year. The new one I bought did not have the handy plastic board, but just a cardboard back with an irrelevant logo printed on it: it said EFFICIENCY. Well I wasn't sure of that since it lost its plastic and gained in advertising itself. But still it also had regained the original tradition of respecting the Moon. The phases were neatly displayed week by week. The tradition had won! Although almost the complete of our christian western culture has no idea at all of how to respect the phases of the moon, still we maintain this tradition. And I was pleased to see this. Not annoyed because of an attachment to the past or something. No I understood why.

The war in Kosovo is over, Serbia has been defeated by the power of the western alliance. By sheer technical scoring the enemy had to withdraw and Kosovo was liberated from its oppression and terror. Two other wars though drew attention since: the war between India and Pakistan about the territory of Kashmir and the war of Russia against the rebel forces of Dachestan and Tsjetsjenië in '99. It reminds one of the medical problem of fighting symptoms realizing that the disease has not been defeated. As we cure from the wounds of one war a war almost alike pops up at another place. Although it has a different place on the political map, the present war of Russia against terrorism has the same ring as the war of the Serbians against other rebel forces. The war in Northern India was of the fundamentalist kind: two likewise systems quarreling about the historical uncertainty of a territorial claim with Islam opposing Hinduism. Both cultures are (religiously spoken) lunar cultures, but the Islam religiously has a 'purely' lunar calendar repeating itself after 32.5 years while India has an intercalated lunar year aligning with the seasons with a regular 13th month added. Between Christianity and Islam there is a more striking difference of timerespect as with the opposing politics of the lunar system to itself. The wars between Islam and Christianity are more 'promising', more threatening than an internal lunar conflict. The war in India was quickly settled by some diplomacy. Not really a threat to the world peace, although there was a nuclear potency that was new in the game. No, more dangerous is the opposition between Islam and Christianity. Not just because of all kind of historical connotation. We are old enemies always prepared to continue the quarrel where we left it, but we still have enough science, politics and econonmy in common interest to keep the diplomacy open and progressive. Rationally on the material level the historical differences are not the real problem. It is more the elusive psychology of the systems of belief, the fundamentalist materialist and the fundamentalist moralist systems, that is threatening.

This psychology can be analyzed as an opposition of sunnies against moonies. Christianities only virtue of timerespect is the respect for the length of the solar year. That is about all that Christianlity has accomplished in two millennia of experimenting with time next to the byproduct of a political monster of historical attachment called the standardtime of the clock and the julian/gregorian roman calendar. Opposed to that sunny virtue of ego-culture - the sun is the symbol of the ego - we have the moonies of the Islam. They also have as one of their major virtues of timerespect the respect for the regularity of the Moon [not mentioning their respect for the sundial with their prayer-times that makes them an alternate kind of sunnies too, in this case bound to the irregular hours of the seasons] with the byproduct of an age long quarrel about what exactly a lunar year would be with e.g. lunisolar personalist India. The moon symbolizes the fixation - fixed as it is on the sun with no spin - and Islam therefore rejects the imaging of man and beast. Pakistan and India could have a war with their lunar differences - as India wouldn't deny the Sun, the ego, the person (or Kashmir) with the Moon - and the West could hardly understand or take this serious from the perspective of healthy economic and political ego. To them the lunar quarrel seemed childish and incomprehensible. What is the economic ground for the differences? Is Kashmir of such an economic or strategic importance? Not really. It is a lot of mountains. Thus an end to that. Simple. The sunnies aren't that crazy. Of course. They are rational, pragmatic and economic and the moonies are sentimental, principal, unpractical and childish .... At the other hand as shown by first Serbia and later by Russia is the West not really innocent either in its ego-politics of claiming territory in Islam regions. Of course those rebels only need social security, but make a need for an independent state of it being urged to that security. Western ego-politics then turn out to be more destructive, repressive and also economically irrational than the internal lunar differences of the eastern Lunar calendar-systems to themselves, personalist or not. Western ego-politics even have the power to unify all those lunar claims in a world war of moonies declaring that the onesided, not to the real moon connected sunnies [and also not to the real sun as for the weekorder and the clock thus] are godless and possessed by the materialist devil. There are many Islam fundamentalists who see it this way already. Can the world heal from this threat of total alienation and destruction?


   2: The nature of our mondial schizophrenia

Christians are smart politicians: they know how to be graceful with the material sins to the point of being accused of the materialism themselves. The Pope would be just another businessman repressive about his own moralist manipulations of time and peoples. The sun-God J. worshipped on the heathen sun-day weekorder of Babylon sanctified (?) by the true solar year and a perfected leaping method, would be denied all relevance of calendering to the other lunar wealth and happiness of loving and maintaining to the actual grace of the natural order of God our Creator (with the exception of the lunisolar date of Easter). This is how a moony can see the sunny fool of repression and denial. He makes serious arguments right against the holiness and backbone of the other half of the world this way. Christianity reformed because of these arguments, seeing them in an internal conflict about what the freedom of worshiping J. would be. To the Islam the whole personalist practice was wrong. To them, although practicallly the mooncalendar is only respected for the ramadan, descended J. from heaven because the roman Moon-calendar was repressed and denied its divine reality of respect for the Creation - the will- of God- by means of the Julian reform 46 B.C. that made the original romulan roman lunar calendar solar over night. Losing ones grip on the moon the division of the jullian version of our calendar had no reference to nature, the will of God, any longer apart from the date of New Year. The division of the year had become a matter of political ego as evidenced by the naming of the month's to emperors (July and August) to such an extend that all rationality of the reform was immediately thereafter thrown over board skipping the 30-31- solar month regularity with the socalled augustian reform at the time of J., which was a travesty of what a calendar reform should be and was a prelude to the actual fall of the roman empire in 410 A.D.: the total demise of the original roman order of time less than a century after the roman abolishing of the civil solar weekorder of Ides and Nones.

Time - management is typically what unites politics with religion. It is what priests and politicians have in common. The state or the religion sets the clock and the calendar and the civilian population simply has to respect and follow the command of order. For the sake of the New World order we have to face this basic cultural problem of political/religious claims of undemocratic and unscientific 'pragmatic' commands and (historically Roman, Napoleonic, Fascistic and Communistic) dictatures of time-management. Analyzed to its historical reality the timeproblem can be boiled down to the difficulty of having as well a solar year as a lunar division of month's and moonphase type of-weeks to settle for the legal days of fruitive action. Sun and Moon make discrete rhythmic events of nature that do not determine one another. This is also true for the celestial sky that is a third factor of discrete regularity to count with, but which has not this historical and cultural weight as has the sun-moon opposition (see the book Calendar of D.E.D.. for an historical account). The very reality of discrete natural events is a challenge to the world culture: for practical purposes we need a mondial respect for the seasons: agriculture needs this kind of time-respect planning for harvesting and sowing. Also much of our state order is set to the seasons: holidays and times for legal and commercial actions like collecting taxes or drawing statistics and having political debates, or selling season specific products. This makes a solar calendar indispensable: we not only need a solar year with calendered days, but also a division of that year in regular seasons, month's and weeks.


2a: Consciousness

We could say: what is the difference between a weekorder that goes against the solar year like with the phases of a moon calendar or with the Babylonian weekorder that was settled by Emperor C. in the fourth century A.D. (321), and a weekorder that is a logical division of the solar year as with the ancient cakra-calendar offered in the Hindu-bible the Bhagavata Purâna (which is not the same as the Bhagavad Gîtâ that can be compared to the sermon on the mountain of Lord J. )? It is a matter of consciousness. For the sake of consciousness one needs to know of a difference. In time-consciousness that is the difference between two types of regularity or cyclic time. Without the choice one is driven by the system and in consonance not really in control or conscious of it. As a world citizen one has in fact the choice of the western style contrasting culture with nature making babylonian commercial/religious culturally fixed weeks against a gregorian division of the solar year in fixed dates and month's. One can also contrast the eastern-style natural lunar phases of a lunar calendar against the reality and (another possible) division of the natural solar year. One could this way thus speak of a cultural time-consciousness and a natural time-consciousness. But this is not what we see in the present world culture at the end of the millennium. What we see is moonies against sunnies losing (their claims of) consciousness, blaming one another of the one-sidedness of their own (social-control of) ego-politics (personalist or not). The lunar calendars are aligned with either the sun in a lunisolar way like the Chinese and the Indians making for personalist dictates or are religiously going against all sun-management [apart from the solar prayer-times] in a what M. ordained to be a 'purely' lunar calendar [that is to say, a 'lunar year' of twelve lunar months arbitrarily starting somewhere not being validated to any natural phenomenon] that has no respect for the seasons at all derailing in a fundamentalist moralist dictature. At the other hand the sunnies go for the chaos-theory of freedom and liberation in free enterprise and glorification of the individual (or commercial) ego in defiance of so it seems all belief and social coherence and continence, suffering from ever increasing crime rates, cultural alienation and moral decay. What the world in total is suffering from is of the schizoid state of being psychologically drawn to the extremes of consonance to ones own system.

Mental disease individually or collectively can be recognized as a blocking of progress. If from our selfinterests we attain to pride and honor in defense of our cultural ego's, we run into problems if we miss the wisdom of a holistic mind that can account for the total complexity of the cultural oppositions. Progressing on selfhood alone or on a single one-sided subcultural ego, one will never realize peace and equality among the classes of positively being identified with ones age and vocation. No world order is really possible if this holistic respect of relativizing the ego to the command of real progress to the wisdom of the soul is not achieved. Never will one system dominate the world but the system that comprises at least the duality of the - in this case - sun-moon opposition of cultural-natural consciousness thus lessening the reductionism inherent to the consonance of any system. In the end also such a holistic non-repressive culture to the moon-sun duality will have to find a third relative to the celestial sky. But first things first. For the sake of a realistic concept of world-order one cannot escape the matter of political and religious timing.

At present - at the end of the millennium the world is in a schizophrenic state: by means of the media we are constantly talking to ourselves without really having a proper sense of control over what is reflected in the media. The cinema sells complete nightmares. Populism and commerce demands everything to be revealed and our psychologies are directed for non-repression to prevent another tide of the unconscious. But the schizophrenic patient is always fighting with himself. Numerous wars are taking place all over the planet and there is no collective selfconfidence of seeing a possibility of ever getting out of it. We even have a love-plague called Aids that blocks our less virtuous sexuality (the blocking which is also a mark of schizophrenia). Westerners cling to their clime-dependend wealth and try to forget the necessity to share also at a mondial level. As a psychiatrist would say: only if the patient will accept a proper life-discipline of feeding, socializing and housekeeping, that person could be considered cured from his alienation and internal strife. But individually treated our world problem of talking to ourselves and fighting with ourselves to a point that no one understands anymore of how and what, can hardly be cured but by chemical straightjackets that (seem to) have to be kept for ones lifetime since there is never enough of a healthy, free associating social control in a society consciously keeping to human values in proper respect for animal weaknesses and the greater of natural order. If individually the problem of schizophrenia can't be cured, then could we cure this rampant disease at a collective level? Can we stop having an organized hallucination by means of television sets, radio's and GSM-phones? Can we stop all warfare in the world and share the wealth with all worldcitizens having equal rights to a fair share? Is there any chance of curing from our modernist alienations and crime-rates and restore to self-confidence and social control in a wiser and riper concept and reality of local community and cultured discipline?


3: The cure

Facing sun and moon and our cultures of personalist and impersonalist ego there about, we have to say that there is quite a job to do. As said the motive must be for wisdom: a proper recollection of our past experiences aligning it to scriptural truth's and communal confirmations. With the wrong concept of progress along the lines of liberal self-interests only or singleminded democratic ego-interests and defenses next to them, we can never attain to a worldorder of proper human sanity and justice. We have to face the psychology of natural and cultural time-consciousness: both options make cultural ego's that have to embrace a holistic approach in order not to regress and fall in unrighteous actions of repressions and denials about one's own one-sidedness. First of all these ego's are not wrong in themselves. Just as one leg is not wrong to another one or even better or worse. To begin with the cure is as said to be found in the dualistic option (see also the article A New Dualism) that commands a gregorian calendar with moonphases as well as a moon calendar [in the sense of being set to the division of the moon] set to gregorian dates. And next this natural option of the sun and moon needs to be consciously contrasted with the cultural options of weekorder, solar month's and standard timing. Of course this at first hand is a matter of personal respect for the 'will of God' as well as expressed in nature as in the devotion of cultural systems there about. Scientifically this means that simply one has to accept the dictum of validity: what are we talking about and what are we measuring?


3a: The Week

As such, from the scientific point of view, the babylonian weekorder of Constantine is in jeopardy of being abolished by scientific logic. There is no scientific ground for it. The fact that theologically it is prescribed to have a day of rest after six days of working does not say anything about how such a concept of a single week should be used as a unit of measurement in a division of time (to the month and the solar year). From the social science of theology we cannot do without such a unit of measurement, but it is as with the atomic time unit of measurement expressing the length of the second in cycles of the Cesium atom: the unit of measurement still demands for a reference point of measurement with a scale to know exactly what one is measuring with the division of time thus achieved. If we say Sunday e.g. on a calendar, we still need a definition of that day that does not depend on an arbitrary authority for its implementation. We won't ask the pope, because the pope will have no answer, as the Holy Bible, i.c. the christian practice, simply does not say what date would define the Sunday (be it that the sabbath factually should begin at the ninth of the month-Lev.23:32). He just graced the pagan babylonian weekorder, after the roman abolishing of the from the moon alienated Nones and Ides of the reformed julian calendar. Nor can we call the day of a moonphase the new Sunday as that wouldn't make for a seventh day at all, irregular as the moon is to a date. For a scientific respect for the order of a week we have two options: 1) scriptural truth: is there any scripture of social and religious importance in the world proclaiming what date of a natural phenomenon - an independent variable thus - would make a Sunday? 2) Logic: from the rules of formal logic one can try to arrive at a parsimonious reasoning for a division of time that is in line with the seven-days concept.

1: There is scriptural proof of a division of the year that leads to a fortnight of half a (lunar?) month. The Bhagavata Purâna , the 'Vishnu-Bible', describes (canto 3 chapter 11) a so called paksah or panca dasa that belongs to a solar year or vatsara, a year described by the Sun 'traveling North to South and back'. But there is no mention of a seven days week or a prescription of taking rest: one would rather have a sacrifice for the altar of God every day. Work is worship and why should one stop with that? The Bible as such is a progression in the history of relating to God when it comes to time. From the Veda's we have the real sun God (called I or S., but also Lord K. claims to be the light of the sun), telling us in other chapters to respect as well as the solar year as the moon and the celestial sky as the visible part of God (see Bhagavad Gita). From the dispersed scriptural truths we have to assemble a complete order: the year and the month as its division in 12 and the 15-day fortnight (half a month) are taken from the Veda's. The week is taken from the Holy Bible and the exact durations are taken from astronomical tables. The discrete events of the moon do not seem to be of the same solar division, but from the holistic point of view they should according to the ancient romulan roman calendar make for signal days that settle the days of legal and commercial fruitive action. Thus we have a weekorder for 'solar' purposes of ego-management (christian birthdays e.g.) and lunar phases for 'legal and religious ' purposes of setting the days of work. This is a completely different outlook at the history of mankind relating to the 'God of Time'. From a non-repressive approach all these arguments of point no 1 are of equal value. The next point no 2 of formal logic would have to answer the practical question of what kind of calendar our history actually and holistically has amounted to.


3b: Logic

Logically we want a system as parsimonious as possible that still is in respect with the full complexity of natural discrete events and cultural precepts and traditions. Such a full calendar of order does as said abolish illogic and arbitrariness. That is the reduction necessary to satisfy all options as well as the intellect about it. Logically the pagan weekorder does not have to complain of losing Thor's day- Thursday- or Wodan's day -Wednesday-. The christian Bible assures the continence of this definition of the week. What changes is arriving with the concept of the 15-day fortnight: an extra day of the week named after its origin: Cakra (affiliated with chakra, the energy-knots), the vedic term for the celestial sky (meaning wheel or disc or order of time). This so called 'Sisumara-Cakra', in fact the milky way - is considered the visible of the Lord of Time (see quotes). Thus one would have an extra 'sun'-day every fortnight for which no specific actions are known to be prescribed, with which one could (should) study the spiritual, filognostic (loving-the-knowledge) literatures. Being set to the sun these Cakra-sundays would make for a (Cakra) calendar of 48 weeks of 7-8 days leaving 6 (celestial star-)days to be divided equally over the year according to another division in the same Purâna of having 6 seasons. That way after each two months from the 22 dec. (the beginning of the astronomical and logical Cakra-year) one would have one extra season day except for the midsummer seasonday that will have to be omitted for having a solar in stead of a celestial calendar. Thus leaping the weekorder to have a lunar division on a solar calendar we have 24 fifteenth days (FD's) and 5 season-days (SD's) next to 48 normal weeks of six working days each with 48 normal sundays as we were used to with the old gregorian/babylonian weekdivision (see table). Such a renewed gregorian/vedic logical and astronomically founded division of the year would comply with all demands of logic and theology available. The full calendar of order thus would consist of a gregorian indication of dates and the solar year, thus respecting our millennia old history of calendering. Second the calender would get a new weekorder abolishing the babylonian pagan option of unaligned, not leaped, linear weeks that is from then on differently respected by means of the Cakra-division in 48 weeks, giving each day a fixed date (other reforms for fixing dates to days can be considered arbitrary as they are not founded on any other logic but the pragmatical). Thus one would have less sundays than originally was the case and at these social-solar-ego-sundays it would be legal (see footnote *) to work under the condition that it serves the social ego and free association of social control. This means that the whole culture of keeping distance with the media would have an arrest on those sundays. Those days are meant for free socializing and the restoration of social contacts in the public sphere to affirm the communal bond, whether one works for it or not. In the evenings of those sundays one should watch no television, have internet of radio attendance or telephone sessions. Thus the problems of social alienation with the modern media will be properly dealt with. Thirdly that calendar will still maintain its days of closing shops and offices and refraining from fruitive action individually at the phases of the moon that are simply indicated already on each gregorian calendar worldwide. Those days are fit for contemplation, religious services and study of the (lunar) cultural fixations. Thus is the respect honored for as well the (till then still) legal traditions and the religious traditions of sun and moon-respect, as well as the respect for the pagan traditions of naming the weekdays in a full concept of order (for the actual look of it go to tables)


  4: Implementation

This new calendar having so many familiar traits like having the same gregorian dates to the same gregorian year with different less religious solar socialization sundays and more religious/contemplative studious moonphase days of legal refraining from salaried work and the same (but less) weeks with the same pagan names of the days, offers a completely renewed and historically correct vision of the total worldorder relating to God in the form of time. It seems to be an ideal solution if it were not for the fact that taking four weeks out of the division of the solar year seems to slow the tempo of work to a more stress-less point that there could be a negative economic or psychological effect from it. But that is an illusion. The full calendar does offer a slower tempo of work but really not more days of leisure. Against 235 working days on the old gregorian calendar derived from 52 working weeks of 5 working days and 25 holidays, one would have 237 days of work derived from 48 work weeks of 6 work days and 25 holidays in the year 2753 AUC (including 48 sometimes coinciding free lunar signaldays). The two working days more would be compensated for a more convenient use of holidays. In the year 2000 e.g. one only has to take 10 holidays to stay away for 19 days at a row. Thus this calendar not only offers a more relaxed tempo with fewer (but one day longer) weeks but also offers more easy holidays through a better economic use of them. Because one can also do work at Cakra-days the amount of hours worked per day can economically be reduced to a better balanced 6 hours a day in stead of the usual 8 hours/day. Thus the implementation would give no serious economic effects and could even bring an improvement, because of possibly less sick-leave with a more sane division like this. Politically though this system cannot be imposed, only subculturally, by individuals and individual companies and social systems of organization this can be tried out. Only after a reasonable majority of the people are practicing this full calendar of order and are enjoying the benefits of a greater social cohesion and better temporal dualistic and mondial intercultural logic, the government can [for itsself] try to represent and settle it formally. It must not be forgotten what is warned against in the Holy Bible that impositions of time are a mark of the beast religiously and an intrusion in the private lives of people legally and a breach with the mature option of selfdetermination psychologically (see quotes). As such all politics can do to begin with is to liberalize, deregulate and abolish all legal setllements of time, thus addressing the individual responsibility of the mature citizen. Also it must not be forgotten that just changing the calendar might not be enough to motivate and reinforce an individual alternative time-consciousness, as without implementing a likewise reform to clocktime-management, not the whole system of conditioning to the onesided schizoid conflictuous warfaring option has been overcome (therefore at the tables of the full calendar of order there is given the equation of time that is needed to set a reference clock to the Sun).
