666.6666...years x 3 decans = 2000 years
666.6666...years x 36 decans = 24,000 years

Does 666 still represent the beast in man? Not sure. It might. All these symbols have multiple meanings.

666 is the number of the beast because it refers to the animal symbols of the zodiac. The words 'zoo' and 'zodiac' both come from the same Latin word which refers to animals. The four beasts of Biblical prophecy are the Lion, Ox, Eagle, and Man which are the zodiac ages of Leo, Taurus, Scorpio, and Aquarius. They are the center signs of the four seasons of the Great Year.

666 is the number of the beast and the sun because it is a period of time relating to the Great Year. It is the length in years of one decan. The sun travels through the zodiac ages which are symbolized by beasts or animals. Apollo's chariot is pulled by four horses because they are the four seasons of the Great Year.

666 is a common theme in corporate logos.
This is even on Wikipedia:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_age:
"Rate of Precession
"Though the one degree per hundred years calculated for precession of the equinoxes as defined by Hipparchus and promulgated by Ptolemy was too slow, another rate of precession that was too fast also gained popularity in the 1st millennium AD. By the fourth century AD, Theon of Alexandria assumed a changing rate (trepidation) of one degree per 66 years. The tables of the Shah (Zij-i Shah) originate in the sixth century, but are unfortunately lost, but many later Arabic and Persian astronomers and astrologers refer to them and also use this value. These later astronomers-astrologers or sources include: Al-Khwarizmi, Zij al Sindhind or "Star Tables Based on the Indian Calculation Method"(c. 800); Tabulae probatae" or "az-Zig al-mumtan" (c. 830); Al-Battani, Albategnius, al-Zij (c. 880); and al-Sufi, Azophi (c. 965); Al Biruni (973-1048), "al Canon al Masud" or "The Mas??dic Canon"; Arabic fixed star cataloque of 1 October 1112 (ed. Paul Kunitzsch); and "Libros del Saber de Astronomía" by Alfonso X of Castile(1252-1284). At one degree per 66 years, one decan of a zodiacal sign (i.e. 10 degrees) is precessed in a period of 666 years - a value made famous in the Book of Revelation as the Number of the Beast."

That's crazy. This is hinted at in Higgins' Anacalypsis, but here it looks like academics have written about the topic. Still, it is Wikipedia, so who knows about the accuracy. Not sure how to get more information. The articles referenced appear to be in academic journals, access to which requires a paid subscription.


A Clockwork Orange, or a Masonic clock/calendar based on the zodiac ages, the Great Year, and the precession of the equinoxes.


I guess there's more:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astrological_age:
"There exists evidence that the modern calendar developed by Dionysius Exiguus in the 6th century AD commencing with the birth of Jesus Christ at AD 1 was influenced by precession of the equinoxes and astrological ages... He was heavily influenced by ancient cosmology, in particular the doctrine of the Great Year that places a strong emphasis on planetary conjunctions. This doctrine says that when all the planets were in conjunction that this cosmic event would mark the end of the world. Dionysius accurately calculated that this conjunction would occur in May AD 2000. Dionysius then applied another astronomical timing mechanism based on precession of the equinoxes. Though incorrect, some oriental astronomers at the time believed that the precessional cycle was 24,000 years which included twelve astrological ages of 2,000 years each. Dionysius believed that if the planetary alignment marked the end of an age (i.e. the Pisces age), then the birth of Jesus Christ marked the beginning of the Age of Pisces 2,000 years earlier. He therefore deducted 2,000 years from the May 2000 conjunction to produce AD 1 for the incarnation of Christ."

"However the length of the ages are decreasing with time as the rate of precession is increasing."

I dont know what the source for this last sentence is, but it is consistent with the binary star theory, which includes the idea that precession speeds up as our sun approaches its binary partner. This could mean the average zodiac age may approach a value of 2000 years.
