The third page describes calendars which can be seen in lines of a heptagonal geometrical network and in arrangements of stones of a Japanese garden in the event that stones are mobile. And in particular seven days of week are compared to points of contemplation of a Japanese stones garden, and stones are compared to astrological planets.
Traditional Japanese garden of stones are motionless stones which do not
correspond with movement of time, but nevertheless motionless stones of a
Japanese garden can symbolize an instant of stopped time, or can symbolize
reference points of time according to which seasons or other natural events are
designated just as stones of Stonehenge designate the astronomical phenomena. In
essence stones of a Japanese garden can be used as objects which allow to
designate time, and also allow to measure time in the event that stones are
mobile. Namely if there is an opportunity to move stones then the Japanese
garden can be an original calendar where moving of stones symbolizes movement of
That the garden of stones became a calendar, it is necessary to correlate lines of a heptagonal geometrical network with calendar dates, that is necessary to consider points of crossing of lines as locuses which correspond with calendar dates and are adapted to moving stones. Namely it is necessary to consider a heptagonal geometrical network of lines as calendar system according to which stones can be arranged according to reference points of time and can be moved according to movement of time.
Within the framework of a heptagonal network there are seven points which correspond with apexes of a heptagon and points of contemplation of a Japanese garden that correspond to seven days of week and allows to correlate stones to a calendar. If the space of a garden is not limited then it is possible to determine seven points for contemplation of a garden within seven days of week, and if the space is limited then there can be only some points which are intended for contemplation of a Japanese garden of stones in some days of week. But in any case necessarily there is one basic point of contemplation concerning which a Japanese garden of stones is focused in space and is connected to environmental district, and other points of contemplation can exist if the space is not limited also a garden of stones is perfect, or existence of other points of contemplation can be imagined.
The chart shows conformity of seven days of week and seven points of contemplation:
|As it is possible to see, the heptagonal network of
lines forms a figure which name "Star of Magicians" and is applied in
astrology to comparison of days of week to planets, that astrological
symbols of planets show on the chart.
Points of contemplation of a Japanese garden of stones correspond with the astrological Star of Magicians and planets, and accordingly correspond with 7 days of week.
The basic point of contemplation corresponds to Sunday as this day weeks corresponds with the sun which is the main astrological symbol.
It is possible to choose other day of week and other planet for the basic point of contemplation, but the sun is the basic heavenly body which should symbolize the key point of a Japanese garden of stones.
Stones of a Japanese garden can have the different sizes and different colors
that should correspond to attributes of planets in astrology:
Sun - biggest light or yellow stone;
Moon - biggest black stone;
Mercury - smallest stone;
Mars - red stone;
Venus - green or blue stone;
Jupiter - grey or white stone;
Saturn - black or dark stone.
These are approximate attributes of stones according to attributes of planets in astrology, but real stones can have insignificant differences from the listed attributes as a necessary condition is the opportunity to distinguish stones and to compare to planets, and it supposes some variations of attributes.
Besides variations of attributes allow to select harmonious combinations of stones according to the sizes and colors, or allows to collect stones in harmonious groups in the event that groups of three or other number of stones symbolizes planets.
If stones of the Japanese garden are motionless it is possible to observe a rule according to which each stone should be seen from a point of contemplation which symbolizes the appropriate day of week and astrological planet. If any stones are invisible from those or other points of contemplation it is expedient that inappropriate stones were invisible. For example, the stone-symbol of the planet Mars can be invisible in the point of contemplation which corresponds to Friday and corresponds to the planet Venus provided that the stone-symbol of the planet Mars can be latent by the stone-symbol of the planet Venus. That is arrangements of stones can be "adjusted" as a musical instrument according to astrological attributes of planets and according to ratio of planets with points of contemplation.
If stones of a Japanese garden are mobile or it is supposed, that stones can be moved, then it is possible to speak that the garden of stones is megalithic or is a garden of mobile megaliths.
Preliminary stones of a megalithic garden can be located how is shown on the chart:
|Stones are shown by white circles and by the
appropriate symbols of planets.
Small white circles and numbers designate locuses (places) where stones settle down during movement.
Thick dark lines among lines of heptagonal geometrical network allocate outside and inside contours which specify the order for movement of stones.
Namely numbers from 1 up to 14 designate locuses of inside contour and numbers from 15 up to 35 designate locuses of outside contour.
Two stones correspond with the sun and the moon and are located on the inside contour and move in locuses of inside contour, and five stones move in locuses of outside contour and correspond with five planets.
Movement of stones is carried out consistently. Namely move any one stone and
when movement of this stone not probably then move the following stone which
became an obstacle for movement of the previous stone.
For example, the stone-symbol of Mercury move from 17th place up to 19th place and then move the stone-symbol of Mars from 20th place up to 25th place, and the stone-symbol of Mercury leave in 19th place. Then move the stone-symbol of Jupiter from 26th place up to 28th place, and the stone-symbol of Mars leave in 25th place and so on.
If on the inside contour there are two stones and on the outside contour there are five stones, and stones move according to the listed rules then on the inside contour for returning in primary position of all stones it is necessary 84 movements and for returning in primary position of all stones on the outside contour it is necessary 1680 movements.
If on the outside contour to move stones once a week then for returning stones in primary position it is necessary approximately 32 years and 3 months, that has concrete esoteric sense. And if on the inside contour to move stones once a year then for returning stones in primary position it is necessary 84 years, that is equal to the cycle of the planet Uranus.
The detailed information on cycles of the planet Uranus look on a site: www.emotions.64g.ru/apf/apf1en.htm.
If to arrange on outside and inside contours other numbers of stones then it is possible to calculate other chronological periods of time. And also if to use other periodicity of movement of stones then it is possible to calculate a various chronological periods of time.
If on the outside contour to arrange two stones and to make movement of stones once a week then for returning stones in primary position it is necessary approximately 12 years, that there corresponds to the cycle of the planet Jupiter. And if on the inside contour to arrange five stones and to make movement of stones once a year then for returning stones in primary position it is necessary approximately 168 years, that there corresponds to two cycles of the planet Uranus.
If to take into account that 168 years is 14 twelve-year periods (14x12=168) then movement of two stones on the outside contour and movement of five stones on the inside contour forms two conterminous cycles which are a magnificent calendar for calculation of time.
Also other chronological periods of time can be calculated if to arrange three stones and four stones, or four stones and three stones on outside and inside contours.
Thus, a megalithic garden of mobile stones can be a calendar by means of which calculate chronological cycles of planets and determine ratio of planets, which can be seen in arrangements of stones if to look at stones from different points of contemplation in different days of week. If stones are motionless then in various arrangements of motionless stones of a Japanese garden it is possible to fix any significant events of time if to have stones according to the shown chronological chart.
The following page describes games and puzzles which can be played by means of moved stones of a Japanese garden (moved stones of a megalithic garden).
