universal calendar #5777 idealized lunation

1.5: summary:
. part of my logging routine involves
copying a template of month folders
that contain files for each annual date:
each file in a month folder
starts with a date and some event's name,
such as: sched/12 dec/25 christmas.txt .
. ever since hearing about the prophesies of
Hebrew year 5777 (2016.fall ... 2017.fall)
I have been interested in Jewish and Islamic events;
so, I was looking for a way to add them
to my year's logging template .
. the jewish calendar is lunisolar,
and the islamic calendar is lunar,
so while their events are on
a particular monthly date,
their months are shifting around
within the calendar that modernity uses,
therefore,
I devised an idealized lunation system,
that assigns their months to particular days,
aligned with the equinoxes of the year 5777 .
. also, there are many usa calendar events
that are shifting their date annually
because they are defined as being on
something like the 1st monday of a month;
so, in order to fix a date for these,
I had to choose a particular year,
and, again, the year I chose was 5777 .

/universal calendar #5777 idealized lunation:

the Jewish LuniSolar Seasonal Calender:
. a lunar calendar defines a month as
starting at the beginning of a new moon,
and all Jewish holidays fall upon
particular days of such months .
. the solar year has more than 12 lunar months
so without a leap month occasionally inserted,
a particular month would not remain within
any particular season of the year;
thus the calender occasionally has 13 months
to ensure passover remains the spring,
and sukkot happens in the fall, etc .
. new years start on the fall equinox;
although the first month of a calender
starts at the spring equinox .

. the key to idealizing the Islamic calender
is assuming it's based on the Jewish calender,
and seeing that the Islamic month "Rabi'al-awwal"
means "month of spring"; hence, the 12 months of Islam
when converted to idealized lunations
should see Ramadan as starting on the fall equinox .

. if you were to idealize lunar time
for fixed JudeoIslamic dating,
12 lunar months would fit exactly
in a solar year (6 between each equinox);
and, new moons would be aligned with
the fall and spring equinoxes .

. of course, part of the magic of
the lunar or lunisolar calenders
of the semitic religions, Islam and Judaism,
is that one cannot ordinarily predict
some of the appointed times;
so a system of idealized lunations
is simply a study aid, not a practical calendar .
. then again,
bible values were basically practical,
and the primary value of a lunar calendar
is an enhanced ability to synchronize activities
without having to count all the days .
. we can do that without the moon now,
so there is one less religious reason for
continuing to support a lunar calender;
however, a lunisolar calender is still needed in order to
fulfill the few prophesies that remain until 5777 ; [6.29, 7.5:
moreover, phases of the moon have a major influence
on our hormones, emotions, and our luck .]
and don't forget the evolution value:
. the math for predicting lunar cycles is very complicated,
and those who could predict them
might have a military or social advantage,
and thus an evolutionary advantage .

. our idealized lunations calender
has the months shifted so that
they are aligned with the equinoxes;
to assist in the mapping between the dates
of the modern calender and the Jewish,
we will use nasa.gov's julian calender table,
to convert month-day to year day, and back;
eg, december 31 is on day 365 .

equinoxes in Israel (UT+3) on 5777:

# fall equinox 2016: sept 22 (14:21+3)
. given time (14:21+3),
fraction of day (17+ 21/60)/24 = 0.7229;
fall's equinox is on day 265.7229 .

# spring equinox 2017: mar 20 (15:27+3)
. given time 15:27+3,
fraction of day (18+ 27/60)/24 = 0.76875;
spring's equinox is on day 79.76875 .

. if spring is day 79.76875
and fall is day 265.7229
then there are (265.7229 - 79.76875)/ 6 =
30.99236 days per month in mar...aug;
and there are (79.76875 + 365 -265.7229)/6 =
29.841 days per month in sept..feb .

starts of ideal lunar months for 5777:

2016 fall equinox -- first day of 5777
#1 = fall equinox = day 265.7229 = sept 22
#2 = 265.7229 + 29.841 = 295.5639 = oct 22
#3 = 295.5639 + 29.841 = 325.4049 = nov 21
#4 = 325.4049 + 29.841 = 355.2459 = dec 21
#5 = (355.2459 + 29.841)-365 = 20.0869 = jan 20
#6 = (385.0869 + 29.841)-365 = 49.9279 = feb 18

2017 spring:
#1 = spring equinox = day 79.76875 = mar 20
#2 = 79.76875 + 30.99236 = 110.76111 = apr 20
#3 = 110.76111 + 30.99236 = 141.75347 = may 21
#4 = 141.75347+ 30.99236 = 172.74583 = jun 21
#5 = 172.74583 + 30.99236 = 203.73819 = jul 22
#6 = 203.73819 + 30.99236 = 234.73055 = aug 22

in Judaism (J) and Islam (I),
and their western start day minus one,
so you can add dates to the day;
eg, the idealized Tishri is around sept 22,
so Tishri 10 is on day 265 -1 +10
= day 264 + 10 . [7.5:
