Precession as it Relates to The Sophia of Jesus
5 -- 6 -- 12 -- 72 -- 360
There are a handful numbers repeated in The Sophia: 5, 6, 12, 72, and 360. 6 x 12 = 72; 72 x 5 = 360 -- a full circle, or one complete processional cycle (25,920 years).
We are told that an "Assembly" is when "the multitude" of the 360 Powers is in "unity," and that is why the aeons are called an "Assembly," as in "The Assembly of the Eighth." An aeon, then, Jesus tells us, is one complete precessional cycle, or 72 years times 360 degrees (one degree for every 72 years), which means that an aeon is roughly 25,920 years.
Furthermore, we know that the zodiac has been used to record the passage of time since at least the Egyptians, and there are a standard of 12 constellations in the zodiac. A full circle -- the 360-degree horizon -- divided by the zodiac constellations as if they were equally spaced yields one constellation every 30 degrees. 30 degrees times 72 years (one degree for every 72 years) would equal, roughly, 2,160 years, which is oddly congruous with the Biblical record of how long an "age" is (often translated as 2000 years).¹
Jesus was not thinking on such a small scale, however. Sure, every 2000 years or so a new "age" dawns, which can be seen as the "end" of a world (and the start of a new one), but Jesus was more drastic than that: Immortal Man only set up 12 aeons. We are currently in the eighth. That leaves us about 103,680 years (one aeon of 25,920 years, times four more aeons), minus about 2000 years, since Jesus was born at the "dawn" of the Age of Pisces (hence his symbol being a fish). What will happen at the end of the 12 aeons can't be said, and we can do nothing now except pass on this knowledge of how to measure time, and thus see it coming.
What is more fascinating is that The Sophia says life -- physical life -- began in the third aeon, which is to say five aeons ago, at the same time that this wisdom was born (indeed, the creation myth in The Sophia seems to be saying that we weren't truly "alive" until we were wise, which goes right along with Jesus referring to anyone who is ignorant as "dead"). There is some evidence that Man has been just as concerned about measuring time as He has been about gathering food since the very earliest stages of civilization, deep in the last ice age, but The Sophia claims the measure of time began in 129,600 BCE.
At this point, we have lost all the orthodox scholars in the audience, for they would never consider that issue, since they have it that Man was basically a stupid, base animal up until about 4000BCE, when they claim the pyramids were built (a theory that, in itself, is questionable); that He couldn't do complex mathematics until Pythagoros; and that He certainly couldn't measure precession until our precious western scientists finally figured it out in the 1900s CE. It would appear that The Sophia, and countless other ancient myths, however, prove them soundly wrong. Western civilization didn't figure anything out (except warfare, perhaps) -- this knowledge has been passed on to us from time out of mind by people like Jesus the Priest-King.
However, it must be noted that "aeon" and "age" in The Sophia might be interchangeable, meaning that the time frame would be 5 aeon/ages of 2,160 years -- or 10,800 years ago -- when we first obtained Wisdom. This is still outside the realm of orthodox scholarship, but is in fact congruous with the "unorthodox" dating of the building of the pyramids. For this reason it seems more accurate to consider the numbers in this way, but in truth, both ccalculations should be kept in mind, as some have postulated a higher civilization in existence that was wiped out at the beginning of the last Ice Age.
Whatever the case may be, it can be seen that the seemingly random numbers and gibberish of The Sophia all play an integral part in the detection of precession and cannot thus be merely coincidentally. The numbers speak for themselves. It's all there: The basics of metric mathematics (which utilize zero), the fact that a circle had been measured to 360 degrees [begging the question of whether such abstract mathematical concepts as pi were also known, which would explain why architectural ability has come and gone in relation to these true teachings of Jesus, and also why mathematics was considered a heresy by the Catholic (Nicean) Church], and the measure of precession, proving that our ancient ancestors could reason in the completely abstract, with regard to the ecliptic versus the equator (to recognize the "wobble" of the axis).
As another aside, yes, they also knew the earth was round, or how else could the creator-god of The Sophia have made a fire that "surrounded" the world -- a fire that seems very much to be an explanation for the Milky Way.
To say all of that is mere coincidence would be dismissive, and I'm sure Jesus would enjoy watching any who react as such slide into the abyss, running from the fire in the darkness of their ignorance. Yet people have doubted this, even in Jesus's own time -- Jesus's revolution was not so much against Rome as aganist the religious leaders who ruled Israel, who in his eyes ignored the true qabala (the Covenant with YHWH) and had thus brought destruction on Israel in the form of Roman occupation. Jesus was attempting to reinstitute the original code of the Qabala, as it related to precession, and thus save Israel.
