Another Chinese secret society is the Hung League. Members must know the answers to strange questions. Some of the answers are:
"one pot with 36 plants and 72 in the other.......I took home 108 plants........"
Not all markers are numerical. Dogs are a marker. Canines like wolves, fox, jackals and the like. Remember our Norse myth? Remember the 800 fighters? When to war with the wolf they go? The wolf. That is the marker. The Egyptians connect the constellation Orion to Osiris. Osiris is Orion. At Orion's heel, is Sirius, the dog star. In the Old Testament Sampson caught a bunch of foxes, tied their tales together, lit them on fire, and sent them to burn down the town. How many foxes did Sampson catch? 300. A marker number with dogs, all in one sentence. Even today we see it. Have you seen the Harry Potter films? Sirius? Sirius Black. What did he turn into? A dog.
So why do these same numbers appear in ancient texts from separate religious traditions? Why do these numbers appear in tales told on opposite sides of the planet? What are these marker numbers? What do they mean?
There are 360 degrees to the circle of the zodiacal constellations. Each sign or constellation equals 30 degrees. Our earth has a cyclical "wobble" called procession of the equinoxes. This procession is what determines what "age" we are in. We are now leaving the age of Pisces and entering the age of Aquarius. From earth's view point, the sun spends 2160 years in each age. 72 is the number of years required for the sun to travel one degree along the ecliptic. 36 is the number of years for the processional sun to complete half of a degree along the ecliptic. 72 + 36 = 108. 108/2=54. All of these numbers are coded in using either the number itself, or multiples of ten such as 36, 360, 3,600 and so on. Or 108, 10,800, 1,800,000 and so on. Such as in the Mayan calender where 15 Katuns=2,160,000 days. This is the 2160 marker. But why? Why did someone travel to India, Cambodia, Mexico, South America, Babylonia, Egypt, Israel/Palestine, China and many other lands? On all continents? Keep in mind these numbers were coded into these myths and writings over 6,000 years ago. Why? Why go through all the trouble? But not just why, who? Who? Who was able to travel the entire planet in the ancient days when we were supposed to be savages in loincloths? Remember the Piri Reis map? The ancients who were able to survey and map the globe. Could it be the same people? In Part V of "The Doomsday Enigma" we will address these questions of "who" and "why" encoded our scriptures and myths with these processional marker numbers.
