"Precession of the Equinox is the illusion of time going backwards"

.

The "Sun" (son) born of a Virgin (Virgo) 
is (also) the Sun as it  p r e c e s s e s 
out of the sign of Virgo
into Leo, the sign of the King."
The Sphinx, of the Giza Plateau in Egypt, is a monument to 
the "birth" of the Sun (circa 10,500 BC)

" Precession" is one of the mechanics of our solar system. The following summary is easy to understand and it will give you a much clearer picture of some of the information contained within these pages.

Precession is directly related to Pi and the geometry of a circle.
The time difference between the mean solar day and "precession"(sidereal "what's real" time) is 3.141592654 (Pi) seconds (of time) per day. Pi seconds per day accumulates to 22.94884425 hours in 72 years or approximately 1 degree (day) of arc. (Precession is approximately 1 degree in 72 years.)

In "non-geek speak"... just suppose that the Sun always rises at exactly 6 a.m. and your wrist watch is running fast by 2 seconds each day, but you are unaware of it.  So, after a year, it appears clearly evident to you that the Sun is slowing down.....you get "there", to see the sunrise (one year later) at 6 a.m. (according to your watch) and the Sun doesn't show up until about 12 minutes later and after two years the Sun is 25 minutes late!  It never occurs to you that the wristwatch that your great-grandfather made needs a cleaning and also, because that you are the center of the universe and the only intelligent life form that was ever created, it never enters your mind that your system of measurement (wristwatch) is a bit off......the only reasonable conclusion to make is that the outer universe is wobbling because of all of the banana peels that your ancestors have left in outer space.  :-)

A similar result occurs in the "real world" ("Precession" or apparent backwards movement of the visible universe as viewed from Earth) because our calendar runs a bit faster than what is actually happening in the visible (Sidereal) universe......we "show up" (unaware) early to take our measurements and conclude that the entire universe is "backing up".

One additional way of explaining the visual phenomenon of "precession" is to imagine two automobiles traveling side-by-side on a highway.  One car is going 60 miles per hour and the other is travelling at 58 miles per hour.  From the perspective of the driver in the 60 MPH car, the 58 MPH car appears to be slowly moving backwards. 

Please note that the astronomical periods (ages, great years, etc.) given in the following segment are based upon a "geometric year" of 360 days and vary slightly from the actual time spans.

If we look up and see a star at exactly midnight on March 21st and come back to the same spot 72 years later exactly at midnight the star will seem to have "moved backwards" (1 degree). The star did not actually move backwards, it only appears to be in a different place because you have arrived "early" as far as the star is concerned!
Our "arriving early" is what contributes to the illusion of the "shifting" of the entire visible outer universe over long periods of time (precession). Our "Tropical Calendar" is based upon the notion that the Sun always enters the first degree of the astrological sign of Aries on the Spring (Vernal) Equinox.  Our tropical calendar is actually running a bit faster than what is actually happening in the heavens so when we take our measurements it appears that the entire visible universe is gradually shifting "backwards".  It is this "shifting illusion" which we measure to determine the length of an "Age".

Precession Note:  Our present estimation of the length of a year (365.2422 days) is less than the length of a "Sidereal" Cycle by approximately 20 minutes. This difference may seem slight, however, in the calculation of ages and during geologic time spans the difference accumulates and becomes quite significant.

Precession also enhances the idea of a dynamic and organic living presence in our shifting universe.
