Secondary 807-Year Age of Seth follows the Primary 105-year Age of Seth using lunar/solar math from the three oldest sources: the Jewish Calendar, Egyptian Calendar and Mesoamerican Calendars. Ancient calendars in the Holy Bible had lunar/solar calendar origins. The work at timeemits.com develops tools from the three oldest known lunar/solar calendars: Jewish, Mayan and Egyptian. Each Antediluvian Patriarch character in the lineage to Enoch reports time reckoning common to ancient civilizations. Timeemits.com defines a primary age category and a secondary age category in the lengthening Antediluvian Calendar.
Secondary 807-Year Age of Seth
"And Seth lived after he begat Enos eight hundred
and seven years, and begat sons and daughters:"
Lunar/solar calendar math from the three oldest sources: the Jewish Calendar, Egyptian Calendar and Mesoamerican Calendars discovers embedded meanings for the ages of Seth. Progressing through the genealogy following are the lunar/solar calendar records that extend from Genesis scriptures. Each Antediluvian Patriarch character in the lineage to Enoch reports time reckoning common to ancient civilizations. Timeemits.com defines a primary age category and a secondary age category in the lengthening Antediluvian Calendar. Births until next named son are elements in the primary age category. Adam and Seth begin to recount vast spans of time. The secondary age category measures time in Mayan Calendar 400-year-Baktun-cycles. Secondary ages include time from fatherhood until death.
Mayans call the 365-day-solar-year a Haab and divide the 365-day-Haab-solar-year three different ways. The first division decides a 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year. Adding 100-days arrives at the 360-day-Tun-year. The remaining 5-days have significant religious implications. They subdivide the final 5-day Wayeb festival period into the last 4-days and overlap the New Year by one final day. A Mayan system that derives from Mesopotamian sources manifests the Mayan 5-day Wayeb in high esteem. Sacred practices involving a 364-day-calendar-year support the belief structure. Mayans named them the five Year Bearers, which advance a 360-day-Tun-year by 5-day-names every year. Given there are four separate year bearers in a 20-year-l/s-cycle, mythology corresponds these last 4-days with four directions and four sacred mountains. They are the windows to the New Year and divide 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years with four gates of 65-days each.
Mayan 20-year-l/s-cycles encompass five different 4-year-cycles similar to our leap day pattern. The prefix “Ka” is accepted vocabulary for the Katun, which means 20-Tun-years or one Mayan 20-year-l/s-cycle. The 4-year cycle of 5-Wayeb-days, consecutively place the next year bearer on New Year’s Day. Along these lines, the prefix “Bak” squares the 20-year-l/s-cycle to become one 400-year-Baktun-cycle. The concept of numerical matching X-days with X-years commences with ancient 364-day-calendar-years.
The secondary 807-year age of Seth prescribes an 800-year Generation Cycle as partial segment device within the whole period. The 800-year Generation Cycle repeats to hold place value in the secondary 807-year age case of Seth. The third and fourth 400-year-Baktun-cycles in the Antediluvian lineage combine in the second 800-year Generation Cycle.
The secondary 807-year age of Seth includes the second 800-year Generation Cycle, plus another 7-Tzolken-sacred-year component. The ancients add seven Mayan 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years to the secondary 800-year Generation Cycle. Equation 1 multiplies 7-Tzolken-sacred-years by the 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year to equal 1820-days. Another 7-Tzolken-sacred-year component of 1820-days adds with an 800-year Generation Cycle to describe the entire secondary 807-year age of Seth (Eqn. 2). Remaining time following each 800-year Generation Cycle always adds to the Patriarch’s secondary age.
Secondary ages correspond with primary ages in a chain of l/s progression from Adam through Enoch. Seth’s primary 105-year age is the first solar-side time split listed for the ancestry. Twice Adam’s primary 130-year age finishes the first numerically matched 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle. Seth’s primary 105-year age then completes one 365-year-solar-cycle. Through the Antediluvian Calendar ancestry, reversing conversions between 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years and 360-day-Tun-years took place.
"And Seth lived an hundred and five years, and begat Enos:"
The Ethiopic 364-day calendar suits cascaded time layers for Seth. A 100-days and years single term continues with the last 5-years in the primary age category. A calendar year of 364-days provides 105-days in 105-years. The last 5-years of Seth’s primary 105-year age multiply by 364-day-Ethiopic-years to equal 1820-days (Eqn. 3). Exactly 1,820-days are whole number, integers that secure the last 7-Tzolken-sacred-years in the secondary age category. Both the primary age 5-Ethiopic-years and the secondary age 7-Tzolken-sacred-years are congruent to 1,820-days. Placing the last 365th-day on New Year’s Day calculates the 364-day-Ethiopic-year correctly according to Enoch I, the Book of Jubilees 6:23-38 and the Dead Sea Scrolls 4Q321.
The Ethiopian Book of Enoch (I) advises the perfect calendar year has 364-days. A 364-day Jubilee calendar year quite possibly demonstrates the oldest mention of cascaded time. Affiliations with initial Egyptian Calendar practices clarify 4-days assigned to solar-side and 6-days assigned to the lunar-side of the calendar. The final summit day of the 365-day calendar year and four controlling days, one for each quarter of the year, were the principal rulers of time.

CHAP. LXXIX; Verses 4-6:
The Book of Enoch (I), The Prophet
Seth, the first generation after Adam, completes a 365-day-solar-year and 365-year-solar-cycle. The primary 105-year age of Seth adds with a 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle to make one 365-year-solar-cycle. A 360-day-Tun-year is the midpoint length of year that leaves 5-days of solar-side time split unaccounted for at the end of a 365-day-solar-year. Two viewpoints are possible with the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle steadfast. The first case is a 360-year-Tun-cycle in conjunction with a 365-year-solar-cycle. A 5-year difference exists between the 360-year-Tun-cycle and a 365-year-solar-cycle.
The 360-year-Tun-cycle was fundamental to lunar/solar calendar operations. A difference of 105-years from the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle compares with the primary 105-year age of Seth. Seth's primary 105-year age is actually a composite that includes two distinct sub-periods. The first 100-years are between the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle and the 360-year-Tun-cycle. Again, the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle divides into four quadrants having 65-Tun-years each. The last 5-years compute 7-Tzolken-sacred-years in the secondary age category. Two methods estimate 7-Tzolken-sacred-years in equations 4-8 to compare closely with the 364-day-Ethiopic-year conclusions above.
Equation 4 multiplies for 1,800-days using a 365-year-solar-cycle that has 360-day-Tun-years. The alternate method in equation 5 likewise multiplies for the same 1,800-days using a 360-day-Tun-cycle and a 5-day feast period remaining between one 360-day-Tun-year and the 365-day-solar-year. The secondary 800-year Generation Cycle of Seth repeats Adam's secondary 800-year Generation Cycle with at least 1,800-days leftover.
Substituting the more familiar 365-day-solar-year and the 365-year-solar-cycle into the calculations shows the incredible accuracy of the ancient calendar. A 365-year-solar-cycle substitutes in place of the 360-year-Tun-cycle. Comparable substitution uses a 365-day-solar-year in place of 360-day-Tun-years to result in 1,825-days (Eqn. 6). The last 5-years in Seth’s 105-year primary age amounts some 1,800-days to 1,825-days. Time beyond the 800-year Generation Cycle approximates to 7-Tzolken-sacred-years, which add in the secondary 807-year age of Seth.
Where the equations are redundant, either case divides by a 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year to find two values approximating 7-Tzolken-sacred-years. For 1,800-days, dividing by 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years equals 6.92-Tzolken-sacred-years (Eqn. 7). In the case of 1,825-days, dividing by 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years results in 7.02-Tzolken-sacred-years (Eqn. 8). The last analysis closely approximates 7-Tzolken-sacred-years as supplemental time in the secondary 807-year age of Seth.

Our calendar tools enable current Bible students to explore the most remote thought processes ever. A final revelation point examines the Leap Day inclusion. Most people today are familiar with the Leap Day inclusion every four years. The single Leap Day addition every four years in our modern calendar was once a vital element for the ancient Egyptian Calendar. The Egyptian Calendar summed the quarter-day fraction every year. The last year of 365-days adds the summit to make the entire Sothic Cycle 1,461-years long. Leap Day had a very important role in remote calendars. Enoch, seventh Antediluvian Patriarch from Adam links with the Egyptian Calendar. The Enochian Sect applied the 364-day-Ethiopic-year with the parallel theme of numerical matching. Leap Days exist rooted in the 400-year-Baktun-cycle. A 400-year repeating Leap Day cycle appears in our present calendar.
The present Gregorian calendar labels the current 2006 calendar year. Our calendar embraces fine-tuning. Leap Day is normally included every fourth year on February 29. The Leap Day adjustment is required to keep the star positions on track over successive years. A 400-year cycle exists by restricting Leap Days to century years not evenly divisible by 400-years. Pope Gregory XIII modified the Julian calendar and associated Leap Day correction rules in 1582 to maintain proper Easter calculations. Easter was slipping farther into summer. The namesake calendar reform dropped the 10-days between October 5 and October 15 in 1582. The rule excluded Leap Days in centennial years not evenly divisible by 400-years. Thus, the years 1700, 1800 and 1900 excluded Leap Day. The years 1600 and 2000 added Leap Day in the usual manner. Solar year stability needs only 97 Leap Day insertions in a 400-year period.
The calendar math from the three oldest major calendars: the early Jewish Calendar, the Egyptian Calendar and the Mesoamerican Calendars shared phenomenal accuracy that resembles our modern Gregorian calendar. Leap Day adjustments were fundamental to the religious eschatology of ancient Egypt. Lunar/solar 19 and 20-year cycles anchored the four cardinal points of the solar year. A winter solstice celebration later called Saturnalia served to perpetuate the Egyptian calendar. The vernal, spring equinox began the Jewish Jubilee calendar year and the New Year of ancient Greece. The book of Enoch cites the summer solstice. Fall harvest festivals such as the Feast of Tabernacles from the Jewish lunar calendar reference the occipital, fall equinox. Leap Day calculations in our present calendar identify a 400-year pattern that reflects the Mayan 400-year-Baktun-cycle.
The translated "generation" alludes to Abraham's first-born son after 400-years. Gen. 15:16 implies knowledge of a 400-year period. Strands referenced from sacred literature testify that given 400-year-Baktun-cycles weave into our modern view of Biblical chronology. A multiple of two 400-year-Baktun-cycles specify the 800-year Generation Cycle. The 400-year-Baktun-cycle is the final bridge to Mesoamerican history.
The calendar detailing Adam's lineage exhibits numerical matching. In a single term, 365-day-solar-years and 365-year-solar-cycles occur throughout the text. Conceptions of days and years having the same numerical value elaborate the meaning for "and all the days of …. were …. years." Calendar study secures the components of 105-days and 105-years as a single term. The agricultural 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-year and the matched 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle describe single terms also.
The lunar/solar calendar order of the Patriarchs continues to unfold in the same manner. Components from other calendar systems assemble to employ advanced tools. The named characters from Adam to Enoch list a primary age category time that associates with the 260-year-Tzolken-sacred-cycle. The secondary age category includes the 800-year Generation Cycle. Two multiples of a 400-year-Baktun-cycle are combined for six repeating 800-year Generation Cycles. Additional time adds to the secondary age 800-year Generation Cycles and calculates in either 260-day-Tzolken-sacred-years or 360-day-Tun-years.
The Antediluvian Patriarchs incorporate a spiritual hierarchy. Birth, life and death events mark strategic points to illustrate lunar/solar calendar reckoning. Natural and explicit, the recognized eras are numerical remnants left to us by a skilled society. Kings, deities and the nature of gods all played a role in ancient cosmology. References to supernatural beings and visions are most noteworthy in the writings of Enoch.
The lifetime age of Enoch, the seventh Antediluvian Patriarch from Adam, was 365-years. More precisely, a 365-day-solar-year and the 365-year-solar-cycle appear as a 365-days-and-years single term. The solar calendar of Enoch was rooted in both Egyptian mythology and Jewish lore. Sacred Jewish texts impart an Ethiopic 364-day-calendar-year that lends new insight by reserving the last day of the solar year. A final day and year single term serves again, numerical matching of days versus years. Enoch blends with parts of many prophetic scriptures, such as "... one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day" (II Peter 3:8). Ideas of an angelic, heavenly host compare with other sacred Jewish writings that regard supernatural entities. The Talmud, Dead Sea Scrolls and the Book of Jubilees are such examples. The complete genealogy of Adam to Noah expands in the Holy_of_Holies. Calendar information is serious business.
