Four Tiered Spiral Holds the Ages of Mankind. This blog is about the spiral and time. My last post was about the circle and time. A number of Greek philosophers thought the circular theory held sway over the spiral. My post specifically mentions these thinkers. Here is the internal link to the circle post: Defining Time in Antiquity- was thought of as Circular or as a spiral? A number of other cultures used the model of the spiral to explain time. The 1st example is the Hindu. Here is the four tiered spiral. The overall cycle was 12,000 years. It was called the Mahaijuga cycle. Here is the breakdown within the full cycle: Krta yuga is the 1st stage. It lasts 4,000 years. The 2nd age is called Treta yuga. It lasts 3,000 years. Stage number three of the Dwarpara yuga. It lasts 2,000 years. Finally comes is the Kali yuga. It predictably lasts 1,000 years. Between each pair of these well defined cycles are a twilight and a dawn. Simply doing the math we see that the four cycles only add up to 10,000 years. A twilight a and dawn on either side of each cycle adds the remaining 2,000 years. The four tiered spiral also appears in many Mediterranean cultures. They are referenced in the featured picture. First comes the The Golden Age is the only age that falls within the rule of Cronus. Peace and harmony prevailed. Humans did not have to work to feed themselves: The earth provided food in abundance. They lived to a very old age. They were also blessed with youthful appearance and eventually died peacefully. During the silver men refused to worship the gods and Zeus destroyed them for their impiety. In the bronze age men were undone by their own violent ways. they dwelt in the “dank house of Hades“. This Age came to an end with the flood of Deucalion. Finally comes the iron age. During this age might makes right, and bad men use lies to be thought good. Humans no longer feel shame or indignation at wrongdoing.
The Four Tiered Spiral Stems from the 4 x 4 number square
The center of the 4 x 4 number square is the 1st square, in order of size, that has four numbers at the center. Genesis 1:1 expressively calls this square for Creation. Genesis replete with its use of number squares. Click on links to find out how.
