A place that no mortal can ever reach.
Every day shift is followed by a night shift, and every night shift by a day shift, so neither will ever get the final word. The real course of immutable history which we all share, then, must be the limit of an infinite number of changes. The history that we all share is the final word once all the work has been done.
Since there will always have been a finite number of human generations following the construction of the first time machine, and since the men of each generation will only work a finite number of shifts during their lives, humans will never be able to write the last of an infinite number of changes. If the last word cannot be had by any mortal, then it must be had by some supernatural entity. It is the thesis of the present interpretation that the final course of history is determined by the will of God.~
Arvelie is an alphabetic date format.
The Arvelie calendar has 26 months of 14 days each.
Each month has 2 weeks of 7 days, and each month's name is one of the 26 letters of the alphabet. The 365th day of the year is the Year Day(+00), preceded by the Leap Day(+01) on leap years.
The purpose of this special calendar is to record daily activity logs starting at year 0 when the tracking started. For example, this wiki was initiated in 2006, which is its year 0. The arvelie date 13A05, is equivalent to January 6th of the 14th year.
- 01D07 2007-02-18
- 02A00 2008-01-01
- 14C01 2009-01-29
- 03+00 2010-12-31
To calculate the day of the year, convert the month's letter to a value, starting with 0 for A, multiply by 14 and add the day of the month. For example, J05 is equal to
(+ 5 (* 9 14)), or 131.
Arvelie time can be implement in a few lines of Uxntal like:
@print-arvelie ( -- ) .DateTime/year DEI2 #07d6 SUB2 NIP ( digit1 ) DUP #0a DIV ,&print JSR ( digit2 ) #0a [ DIVk MUL SUB ] ,&print JSR .DateTime/doty DEI2 ( month ) DUP2 #000e DIV2 NIP #11 ADD ,&print JSR ( digit3 ) #000e [ DIV2k MUL2 SUB2 ] DUP2 #000a DIV2 NIP ,&print JSR ( digit4 ) #000a [ DIV2k MUL2 SUB2 ] NIP &print #30 ADD #18 DEO JMP2r
Neralie is a decimal time format.
The Neralie clock has two groups of 3 digits, called the beat & the pulse. A beat contains 1000 pulses, and equivalent to 86.4 seconds. A day is 1000 beats, or a million pulses. A pomodoro of 20 beats, is equivalent to 28 minutes 48 seconds.
- 6:00 250:000
- 12:00 500:000
- 18:00 750:000
Neralie time is similar to the Swatch Internet Time decimal clock, but uses 6 decimal points and a rectangular watchface. You can find a pascal implementation for macintosh, in the clock repository.
