The Milutin Milankovic Astronomical Model of Ice Ages revisited
As per the M.M.-Model, the 3 combined precessional effects have a cycle of ca. 21,000 years;
the cycle of the axis tilting from 21.80 to 24.40 runs ca. 41,000 years; the cycle from circle to ellipse, back to circle spans ca. 90,000 - 120,000 years. Science predicts the inception of a new ice age, fearing that the period the system achieved its best parameters is already behind us.
However, the data from other sources, from Plato and the Greek Sibyls to the New Testament and beyond, predict the imminence of a Golden Age, with optimal weather patterns, following a prophesied earthshaking and a few other astrophysical and geophysical woes. This is most consistent with what Milankovic’s true parameters would predict, once certain hidden variables are dealt with.
Besides the pull of sun, moon and planets, affecting the motions of the earth and insolation levels on a regular basis of solar system motions, we must factor in periodic entries of special "controller" comets whose purpose is to exercise potent "sucking" power, which helps re-calibrate the motions of the earth. Such comets do not cause impacts, but earth-shaking all the same, due to the reaction of the earth to such potent attraction. We have evidence of many comets entering the system (the "myths", Plato's Timaeus, Critias, Politicus, etc.) and geological evidence of the effects of such cometary activity.
Depending on the comet's size and its motion parameters, we get ekpyrosis and cataclysm, at global levels. Plate tectonic activity due to a major earthshaking `fatal attraction' will most definitely influence the axis' obliquity, once the `dust is settled'. If at the same time we get a minor impact that generates Flooding and enhanced volcanic activity, the results are more pronounced.
What is the periodicity of such "controller" comets which enter the inner solar system and change so drastically our motion parameters? The notion of `aeon' as per Heraclitus of Ephesus deserves our attention.
The Heraclitus aeon is a period of 10,800 years. Besides being twenty times the `age of Phoenix' calculated at 540 years, the aeon of 10,800 years is the most accurate unit for measuring the cycles of the Milankovic model. In fact,
10,800 x 2 = 21,600 our best approximation to the combined effects of all three precessional cycles.
10,800 x 4 = 43,200 (the cycle of axis tilting)
10,800 x 10 =108,000 the best calibration, so far, of the "eniautos" from circle to ellipse and back.
It is no `co-incidence' that makes the numbers fit so neatly. Not to mention the `ancient myths' which loved periods of 540 years; or 432,000; the combined effects of 25,920 and 108,000 etc.
Very soon we shall witness such a`controller comet', making the year 360 days long. It will provide the parameters for a new Golden Age for the survivors of the Floods and the Ekpyrosis. Golden Ages and years of 360 days with enhanced insolation come at a high price in the Drama Of Evolution.
