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 this alphabet. The 365th day of the year is the Year Day(+00), preceded by the Leap Day(+01) on leap years. The year zero defines when the journaling begins. 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.
The date format is principaly used as part of the daily logs recorded through the Oscean systems, but it was also adopted by others and can be found in the wild.
- 01D06 2007-02-18
- 02A00 2008-01-01
- 11F10 2009-03-22
- 14+01 2020-12-31
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 dates are often accompanied with Neralie time.
Arvelie time can be implemented in a few lines of Uxntal like:
@emit-arv ( doty* year* -- ) #07d6 SUB2 NIP ( year ) emit-dec ( month ) DUP2 #000e DIV2 NIP #11 ADD emit-num ( digit3 ) #000e [ DIV2k MUL2 SUB2 ] NIP !emit-dec @emit-dec ( byte -- ) DUP #0a DIV emit-num #0a DIVk MUL SUB @emit-num ( num -- ) LIT "0 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.

The 80'000h model says that "You'll spend about 80,000 hours working in your career: 40 hours a week, 50 weeks a year, for 40 years".
The Jars of Marbles model says that "The average person lives about 75 years, of 52 weeks each, totaling 3,900 Saturdays which the average person has in their lifetime."
When you tire of living, change itself seems evil, does it not? for then any change at all disturbs the deathlike peace of the life-weary.
