The Ancient Egyptian Calendar

A most harmonious Earth-Moon orbital configuration is marked out by the ancient Egyptian calendar; employing an ideal or ‘perfect’ earth year of 360 days combined with a 30-day moon synodic month. And yet of course, such a state of harmony certainly does not exist at present with the known and currently observed values of the earth year and moon month: 365.24218 and 29.53058 days respectively.

To the ancient Egyptians though, their calendar did possess a real factual basis. Indeed, the calendar itself, as established during dynastic times was truly thought to have once characterised the real celestial cycles of both the earth year and moon month, as they existed in some far off forgotten age of exceptional harmony. One may study the truth of the ancient calendar and its basis by way of the following two essays:


Ancient Egyptian Calendar: Ideal 360-day Earth orbit / 30-day Moon month
A physical law of proportion, akin to those of Kepler, that proves the truth of the existence of a once simultaneous earth orbit of 360 days per year and moon month of 30 days, as detailed in the calendar.

The Earth 360-day Orbit Transformed
How the earth orbit and moon month have both been transformed to their present orbital periods, and how the precise measure of transformation rests upon the ratio of 22/7 - a defining value in governing the current earth-moon celestial configuration.
