Osirian Legend of Egypt tells a condensed version of mythology to illustrate the importance of ancient calendar reckoning. The 1,461-year Sothic Cycle highlights comparative elements of the Mayan Calendar. The first and second solar-side time splits by Seth and later, Cainan form part of the Antediluvian Calendar in Genesis.

Osirian Legend of Egypt

The Osirian legend of Egypt sets aside 70-nights during a 365-day-solar-year to mark the star Sirius' disappearance below the horizon. Osirus existed in the netherworld for 70-days until his triumphant resurrection every year. Egyptian mythology preserved the annual heliacal rising that coincided with the flood of the Nile. Expanding the folklore accord of the ancient Egyptians, Sirius remains invisible for 70-years out of a 365-year-solar-cycle that uses 365-day-solar-years or a "year of years." Similar to the primary 70-year age of Cainan, this situation employs a 70-days-and-years single term during the 365-days-and-years single term of the Egyptian Calendar. Sustaining ideas of dividing daylight from darkness, and lunar from solar separation times in equal, but opposite portions underlines a theology that entails the annual duration of invisibility for the "Dog Star," Sirius. Identical patterns repeat when dual 400-day and 400-year-Baktun-cycle terms are considered.

Abstract traces in ancient mythology supplement the anthropology of past culture. Clever screening of stories retold and rewritten many times over avail historians to discern the more important pieces that still survive. Architecture and other physical relics discovered are elements of the bygone days, and when substantiated with customs and folk lore, secure a clearer understanding of former society. In libraries and museums, appreciation for the shoulders forgotten preserves their heritage, and confidently, the future will conserve those days and things shared today. Egyptian mythology and religion were insistent upon the calendar mathematics of the empire.

Osiris and his wife or sister, Isis ruled over the pre-historical lands of Egypt. Both divinities joined Earth to assist the development of humankind. Osiris had a son/brother named Seth or Set. The brothers dwelt at the ancient city of Abydos, together with their wives, Isis and Nephthys. People adored Osiris for supporting the needs of civilization, good health and welfare. Osiris and Isis had to return home during their visit to Asia. Seth and seventy-two others plotted against Osiris during his absence. The conspiracy group arranged a homecoming festival. We are told by the myth a strange box was introduced. One by one, all the guests tried to fit into the box. Osiris was last and the only participant able to ease himself into the box. The conspirators suddenly shut and sealed the lid on the box. They cast the tomb into the Nile River or sea, and it floated northwards. Eventually the box rested in a tamarisk tree. Isis and her nephew Anubis set out to find her husband's body. They found the tree at Byblus. However, Seth's magical power guarded the tree and she could not approach the coffin.

About this time, the King of Byblus came looking for a tree to serve as a column for his palace. Isis assumed the form of a dove and watched. The King selected the same tree that held Osiris. Isis in vain attempted to deter the men from cutting the tree down. Isis resumed her womanly role undaunted and followed the King back to the palace where she became nurse for the queen's child.

Isis finally recovered the coffin only to again confront Seth's magical practices. Seth stole the box away from her and cut the body of Osiris into fourteen pieces. Seth scattered the pieces, forcing Isis to look again for Osiris. Isis searched everywhere until she had located every piece except the phallus. She then made a wooden figurine to represent the phallus and transported the body back to Abydos for burial. Isis wept and chanted prayers for her dead mate. Her tears and prayers were so powerful that one part of Osiris revived enough to obtain conception for his wife. Osiris then ascended to heaven and observed Isis while she carried and bore his only son, Horus. Some texts claim Horus was a reincarnation of his father. Other versions say that Isis and Osiris conceived Horus while they were unborn in their mother's womb. Set knew that Horus would grow up to avenge his father. Horus grew to maturity and after a great contest, returned the throne to Isis. She refused the throne and opted to return to heaven. She rejoined herself to the spirit of her dead husband. She abdicated and Horus succeeded the throne to everyone's satisfaction.

Seth or Set personifies to be the Egyptian devil and the spiritual emblem of adversity. Seth portrays an evil disguise as the serpent Typhon. Seth stands for the destructive antiray that opposes the powers of light. Seth (Typhon) is the archetype of the sun god, Ra. The thinking behind dualities of light versus darkness is noticeable for Seth in this fragment of Egyptian mythology.

Seth's primary 105-year age links with the Mayan 104-year Venus Round and forms the solar-side time split allocated to each 400-year-l/s-Baktun-cycle. Twice Seth's Judaic 105-year primary age accrues 210-years of solar-side time split for one 800-year Generation Cycle. The primary 70-sacred-year age of Cainan numerically matches directly with 70-years disappearance time of Sirius. Shades of the biblical Seth weave into Egyptian mythology.

Seth represents a polarization of common spiritual influences. After Cain slew Abel, Seth replaces his first-born brother (Genesis 4:8, 4:25). Interesting are the column references at Byblus and Isis performing roles of a dove and the queen's nurse. The Ark of Noah and the "ark of the bulrushes" (papyrus) that the infant Moses was discovered in share traits with this legend (Exodus 2:3). The seventy-third and final attempt to fit the box by Osiris after seventy-two others reveals a deified King setting aside the last 73rd-Tzolken-sacred-year of a Calendar Round.

The 365-day-and-year single term quadruples to reach the Egyptian 1,460-year Sothic Cycle. In contrast, numerical matching found with using four 364-day-and-year single terms amounts 1456-years. An additional 5-day-and-year single term, accounting for the Leap Day fraction, finishes a 1,461-year Sothic Cycle. The 1,460-year Sothic Cycle differs from 1600-l/s-years, or four 400-year-l/s-Baktun-cycles by 140-years. The Egyptian lunar/solar calendar divides the remaining 140-years into 70-years of lunar-side and 70-years of solar-side time split. Cainan's given primary 70-year age personifies 70-years Osirian time spent in the underworld by virtue of numerical matching and solar-side time split.

The Genesis sequence of chronology was a component of Egyptian mythology. The 70-year solar-side half of 140-years is at the heart of Osirian lore and the innermost sanctum of the temple. Calculating 69.2-Tzolken-sacred-years or 70.2-Tzolken-sacred-years approximates equal to the primary 70-Tzolken-sacred-year age of Cainan. Seth and Cainan together provide lunar/solar calculations that are fundamental to the 1,461-year Sothic Cycle. Secondary ages are foundational from 800-year Generation Cycles. Days and years share numerical matching themes throughout six recorded lunar/solar divisions from Adam to Jared. The ancient calendar of Osiris embeds in Egyptian mythology and Judeo-Christian biblical records thousands of years prior to the great flood of Noah.
