Our time scale



To anyone,

Who invented the time scale we have adopted? Were there different time scales that were main contenders for our international time scale?
Nobody did has to do with time.

Time realats to heiarchies.

Heiarchies realate to how C is read.
RE: Our time scale...Time in perfect symmetry

That is indeed a loaded question however many legendary scholars in our history have recorded many of their beliefs to the passaing of "Time" and perhaps "Time" itself is an intelligent force that was engineered by great masters who are the ones of the created universe, so little we know.

Here's more food for thought, a little mind cookie to fuel your appetite to a better understanding of "Time"

As the clock ticks 8:02 PM on Wednesday, February 20th, 2002, time will (for sixty seconds only) read in perfect symmetry.

It will read:

20:02(time), 20/02 (date), 2002 (year).

It is an event which has only happened once before, and is something which will never be repeated.

The last time read in such a symmetrical pattern was 10:01 AM, on 10/01, 1001.

And, because the clock only goes up to 23.59, it is something that will never happen again.

This is also known as "The Year of The Mirror"
WoW! This is truly Amazing, I will make every effort to be especialy observant of this historic moment in "Time"
Were your parents everything you hoped for? are you everything you hoped for? will your childeren be everything you hoped for? Mabey, Mabey not, but there is always "Hope"

RE: Our time scale...Time in perfect symmetry

Wow!!! Time02112

Thats is incredible! I will have to make note of that on Wednesday at that time.

I know somebody that plays an important role in the history of time travel and will be reunited with the one he loves on that day! They will be in perfect synchrony and harmony! The number 22 holds great importance and significance in there relationship!
Wow! that will be a turning point in history!

I have something of interest pertaining to time. Why do we reset our clocks twice a year? "spring forward and fall back" reminds people when each change takes place. How did daylight saving time (DST) come about? and Who started it?

A friend of mine emailed me and made mention of an old saying by Benjamin Franklin so I looked it up and found out that Benjamin Franklin first suggested the idea of saving daylight in 1784. More than a century later, an Englishman named William Willett actively campaigned for it. However, Willett died before a law was enacted in Parliament.

Willett, struck on the usefulness of time manipulation as he was riding his horse early one summer morning in Petts wood. During the ride he noticed many homes with their window shutters closed. What a wast of daylight! he must have thought. He started to campaign for a bill in the British Parliament to get the clock adjusted. Simply putting all the clocks forward 80 minutes, in four increments of 20 minutes each, during the spring and summer months and then back in the autumn would have allowed people to have more daylight in the evening.

Finally the politicians adopted DST to conserve fuel during World War 1 by reducing the need for artificial light! Other countries soon took up the idea for similar reasons. Even double summer time was adopted in England during world war II. This allowed for a difference of two hours in the summer and one hour in the winter.

Soon to follow King Edward VII later applied the same change to the royal estates at Windsor and Balmoral.

I just thought this was interesting information pertaining to time travel.

This is a very good question. I find it interesting that no one has ask this question soon.

As best we know, 5000 to 6000 years ago great civilizations in the Middle East and North Africa initiated clock making as opposed to calender making. After the Sumerian culture was lost without passing on its knowledge, the Egyptians were the next to formally divide their day into parts something like our hours. Obelisks (slender, tapering, four-sided monuments) were built as early as 3500 B.C. Their moving shadows formed a kind of sundial, enabling citizens to partition the day into two parts by indicating noon.

Another Egyptian shadow clock or sundial, possibly the first portable timepiece, came into use around 1500 B.C. to measure the passage of "hours." The device divided a sunlit day into 10 parts plus two "twilight hours" in the morning and evening.

The merkhet, the oldest known astronomical tool, was an Egyptian development of around 600 B.C. A pair of "merkhets" were used to establish a north-south line by lineing them up with the Pole Star. They could then be used to mark off nighttime hours by determinimg when certain other star crossed the meridian.

The earliest Egypian calendar was based on the moon's cycles, but later the Egypian realized that the "Dog Star" in Canis Major, which we call Sirius, rose next to the sun every 365 days, about when the annual inundation of the Nile began. Based on this knowledge, they devised a 365-day calender that seens to have begun in 4236 B.C., the earliest recorded year in history.

We know little about the details of timekeeping in prehistoric eras, but wherever we turn up records and artifacts, we usually discover that in every culture, some people were preoccupied with measuring and recording the passage of time. Ice-age hunters in Europe over 20,000 years ago scratched lines and gouged holes in sticks and bones, possibly counting the days between phases of the moon.

The familiar subdivision of the day into 24 hours, the hour into 60 minutes, and the minute into 60 seconds is of ancient origins but has come into general use since about 1600 A.D. The system of consecutively numbering the years of the Christen Era was devised by Dionysius Exiguus in about 525; it included the reckoning of dates as either A.D. or B.C. (the year before 1 A.D. was 1 B.C.) The Julian calendar, introduced by Julius Caesar in the 1st century B.C., was then in use, and any year whose number was exactly divisible by four was desingated a leap year. In the Gregorian calendar, introduced in 1582 and now in general use, the canturial years are common years unless their numbers are exactly divisible by 400; thus, 1600 was a leap year, but 1700 was not.

In 1869 Charles F. Dowd, principal of a school in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., proposed the use of time zones. time zones were adopted by U.S. and Canadian railroads in 1883.

Numerous time scales have been formed, here is a list with a brief description.

Universal Time:
The mean solar time of the meridian of Greenwich, England.

Coordinated Universal Time:
The basis of legal, civil time.

Rotational Time:
Based on the Earth's rotation.

Standard Time:
Local mean solar time depends upon longitude.

Ephemeris Time:
Based on the Earth's orbital motion.

Dynamical Time:
Defined descriptively as the independent variable, T, in the differenial equations of motion of the celestial bodies.

Barycentric Dynamical Time:
The independent variable in the equations, including terms for relativity, of motion of the celestial bodies.

Terrestrial Dynamical Time:
An auxiliay scale defined by the equation TDT = TAI + 32.184 s.

Radiometric Time:
Based on radioactive decay.

You have some incredible information in your post above!

I like the layout of the time scales! The one thing they all have in common is the movement of the celestial bodies. This is what governs universes and encompasses and connects us to the higher power of a great omnipotent,omniscient and omnipresent creator in the grand scheme of things.

I have also read up on petroglyphs (the oldest rock drawings)from around the world and its interesting to note that some of the drawing also depict a stellar calender of the star movements! Even more interesting to note is the underwater petroglyphs that they have found in the ruins under the water in the Atlantic ocean that some presume was the lost city of Atlantis.

The Atlantians were supposedly the first beings to master time traveler on earth, according to a book that I have read by Bruce Goldberg. They were great spiritual preachers!

That is the Atlantians and Time Travelers main goal from the very beginning to advance us spiritually for the coming of a great collismic event. In doing so they have manipulated and controled humanity!!!

This is what I am strongly against!!!

our current "time" system was created by a mix of greek and roman cultures. They both had 365 day calenders, and fixed the leap year thing. They came up with the 7 days of the week, the name of the months. I dont remember who exactly came up with the whole "24 hours" thing, but it's really outdated.
