Chaldean numerology practiced circa 2000 b.c. in Mesopotamia was predicated on the procession of the constellations like a merry-go-round, relative to the horizon, because of the slow wobble of the earth’s axis, its precession. They measured the predicted locations of stars in the future, knowing that the precession rate of the earth’s axis is 72 years/degree, as it spins and rotates around the sun during a year, being thereby able to accurately locate positions on earth by the predicted locations of the stars in the future, being able to triangulate earth positions by the future positions of stars in the sky on given dates, comparing then present star positions to future star postions to calculate earth locations by simple geometry, which means earth measure, very interestingly enough.
The ancient norse legend of Hamlet’s Mill is based upon this earth wobble rate, with the numbers used in the legend having “fallen out” from the ancient mapping methodology described succinctly in article #2 at http://IceAgeCivilizations.com, the same method used to calculate the dimensions for the Great Pyramid of Giza, and the first temple of hebrew Jerusalem, as well as, which is the same geometric circular template used in our modern nautical mile mapping system and in the ancient egyptian decans of time, so check-it-out, to see that so much is explained by the ancient mapping methodology.
