Calendar Reform, a cultural reference

Understanding the world from all angles...

Michal markets his calendar in the name of body acceptance - why?The Calendars...

I'm not a fool. I know that most people are in hiding from themselves. They wallow in their own insecurities, nursing fantasies of being something other than what they are. With this calendar wallpaper, I'd like to encourage them to go wallow in some wet sand. I want them to get their birthday suits dirty and jump around - to know that what you are is a human being and that you belong to a great community of fellow human beings. You just haven't been showing up lately.Pointer

When I say the word art, a lot of people probably think of paintings and sculptures. These are common art forms, but they're not the most basic. One of the most basic forms of art is the calendar.

Consider the fact that the ancient Romans didn't do a great job of counting the days during winter. Regular folk may just have wanted winter to be over, so they thought time might pass by more quickly if they stopped watching. Unfortunately politicians did care. Their terms of office ended in the spring, so during the winter they certainly felt like their days were numbered. Certain unscrupulous politicians started playing around with those numbers, making the calendar start later, thereby extending their terms. Julius Caesar put a stop to this.

Caesar gave the Roman year an average of exactly 365.25 days, which is close to the sidereal year, the time it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun as measured against the fixed stars. He may not have been aware that the Greek astronomer Hipparchus had already discovered that the tropical year, the cycle of the seasons, was slightly shorter. The length of the mean tropical year for our times is 365.24237 days as determined by observations of the March equinox. That is why the Julian calendar has shifted away from the seasons over time.

I use a system that shortens the calendar year to within 3 seconds of the mean tropical year, for an average 365.2424 days a year, which allows the vernal equinox to occur every year within the same 24 hour period - unlike the Gregorian calendar, in which the equinox can vary year by year by as much as three days.

You may not be prepared to adopt a different calendar as long as everybody around you is still using the one Pope Gregory reformed back in the 16th century. That's okay.

I'm offering you free calendar wallpaper so you can think about how important the calendar is as an art-form, not just as a way of counting the days but as a way of organizing our culture and giving our society a direction.

If you think society is heading in the wrong direction and needs a little help, you can try to celebrate Love Your Neighbor Day as I have done - by placing it between Saturday and Sunday - and seeing how you feel. You might feel power and freedom from having broken the cycle of Monday to Friday, Saturday, Sunday. I did. It empowered me and gave me a sense of peace that continues to fuel me to this day. Maybe it can fuel you too.

Help End Corruption With ArtOne of Margo's pictures from our trip across Europe.

Strength and dignity are her clothing...

Proverbs 31:25

Author's Note: I have been enjoined from sharing the details of my true romance adventure until such time that the other party is prepared to present her perspective on the affair arrangement...Pointer

Lots of people go on road trips. Not everybody criss-crosses Europe in 46 days. Especially not with a complete stranger.

Though I felt fully formed as a writer, and had been trained in visual language, it was my first time with a professional camera in my hands. I was just learning the ins and outs and had come to Europe to find as diverse a selection of subject matter as possible, preferably something that fit my aesthetic devotion to promoting body acceptance. Enter Margo.

I had an American passport. She didn't. And the fact that I was driving a car with Polish license plates gave her ample opportunity to point out the difference. It wasn't just police and border guards who ethnically profiled me. Regular folks did it too. One campsite owner didn't shake my hand until he realized I was an American. By that point, I had trained myself to use a simplified English, something that more closely resembled what passes for a lingua franca in Europe these days. Something Margo was trying very hard to master.

Each man grows up with his own kind of poverty. Even if he's got a warm house and plenty of food and a soft bed and plenty of entertainment, there's always something that a man needs. Sometimes he just needs to be listened to, if only by the birds and the trees, but preferably by another man, even if he's an artist from America who isn't very good at listening. By learning how to listen, we learn how to cooperate. By cooperating, we build a better world. In a better world, there are no devils to abuse us. A better world doesn't lend itself to abuse because a better world is populated by people who have learned how to listen.

THE DISAPPEARING WOMAN, THE DISAPPEARING MAN...Pointer

a collection of modern art prints and posters

During our trip across Europe, Margo very bravely opened up to me and to the camera. It was a difficult thing to do considering the scars that she carries. I wanted to share with the world her often joyful, often sad, often angry but always liberating experience except that the Internet is full of pictures of naked women and men and full of trolls who abuse them.

I realized that what I really need to point out is not the openness that Margo and I cultivated between ourselves, but the darkness that continues to surround us. When I censor nudity, I do so in a way that does not compromise the integrity of the human body. In censoring the photographs that Margo and I took during our trip, I was quick to notice that in those pictures where Margo was at her most open, at her most unguarded and most relaxed, in a word, when she was herself and basking in the sun I was forced to blacken her completely.

Why does our society drive people into darkness? Why can we not accept ourselves as we are? Why can we not accept our bodies? Have we truly become eunuchs? Or are we capable of defying the sickness that pits us against each other? Together we could conquer the devils that abuse us.

Whether you enjoy being nude or not, whether you've been photographed nude or not, but especially if, for you, like for Margo, it's something you never thought you would do, consider submitting your own photograph to be published in a censored manner as a form of protest against the ubiquitous presence of the human body on the internet, naked or not, that is published and duplicated ad infinitum without context and without regard for the identity or the needs of the individual being depicted.

Michal's Dictionary:
Calendar Reform

Art is the expression of an idea. Often that idea is simply the form of the expression itself, the beautiful or not-so-beautiful shape of an otherwise meaningless gesture. This is decorative art. It encompasses everything from origami to cheap romance novels. It is popular and if you want to put a decorative print on your wall, you can buy one at a place like Ikea.

Most artists with ambition create documentary art, meaning the ideas embedded in their work relate to something beyond the undulations of their expressiveness. Instead of just making a new twist, they try to make that twist seem extra clever. It means something beyond being just a twist. In the most obscene cases, an artist won't even tell you what it means and suggests you figure it out for yourself. No other profession gets away with this. It's like a prostitute who says he's not sure if he does anal.

I try not to be clever. Trying to be clever is what I used to do when I was a child and I wanted attention. I try to be right. I try to discover the truth and pass it along. I try to trust my own judgment.

I've read most of the Bible. It's not a code of laws or something you put on your coffee table because it looks nice. It's one of the greatest documentary works of art ever compiled. When common people started reading it, the Reformation happened. Not everybody read the whole thing, nor did they necessarily understand what they did read, which is why not everything got reformed in the right direction. In their defense though, some parts of the Bible aren't even written in the right way. We all make mistakes. It doesn't mean we shouldn't keep working towards the right reform. That is the idea at the basis of the best art. It's the idea that I'm going to keep repeating because I am too old to be clever.

Definition of Calendar ReformMargo on a trampoline

Calendar reform can refer to one of any number of attempts, widely adopted or not, to improve the way a certain community keeps track of the passage of the seasons. Most calendars have as their fundamental unit the day, as measured by the revolution of the earth on its own axis. The earth, however, also revolves around the sun, a motion that is the basis for the unit of time commonly known in English as the year. There is a third heavenly body, known in English as the moon, whose revolution about the earth forms much of the basis for the unit of time known as the month.

The motion of these heavenly bodies relative to each other is neither consistent nor does it lend itself to tidy mathematical division. The Earth spins sometimes faster and sometimes slower. The length of any given year is different depending on the point in the Earth's orbit at which you start to measure it. The motion of the moon can be described in various ways, for example, either in reference to the star of our solar system or to all the stars.

A calendar for popular use that counts all three units of time (day, month and year) in whole numbers will not be able to completely reconcile these elements as no year is composed of a whole number of months or days. The months and the days will start to drift away relative to the year. Calendar reform is meant to address this issue.

Some reforms, such as those of Julius Ceasar and Pope Gregory, have been widely adopted and remain in official use as the Julian and Gregorian calendars respectively. Other worthy reforms, such as the World Calender of Elisabeth Achelis, have not been widely adopted despite vigorous efforts.

This website uses a calendar based on many different sources of reform. It strives to remain true not only to the seasons of the sun but to the seasons of man. It is a humanist solar calendar guided by the principle of acceptance.

This Acceptance calendar notes not only the day but the day of the week, not only the month but the season as well, not only the year but also the age.

The ages are named after the planets and consist of thirty generations each. A generation is a period of 33 years, in which an intercalary day in the name of Love is observed at the beginning of every fourth year, not counting the first year of a generation, which is considered a Jubilee year. Each and every year is divided into four seasons named after the constellations in which the sun is found at the beginning of a season. The first season of every year begins within twenty-four hours of the vernal equinox. An intercalary day in the name of Peace is celebrated every year before the second season begins. Each season consists of three months, the first being divided into 31 days, the other two being divided into 30 days each. Every season begins on the first day of the week, which is composed of seven days in the name of the seven pillars of culture and their periodic associations (that is: art, labor, family, law, science, education, and the military; or: victory, capitalism, love, assembly, nature, children, strength) or according to their traditional names.

Like Elisabeth's World Calendar, upon which many of its reforms are based, the Acceptance calendar does not recognize an intercalary day as a day of the week. This places it in contrast with both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. Unlike the World Calendar, which was opposed by many religious leaders, the Acceptance calendar makes an effort to imbue it's measurement of time with a spiritual ethic. Thus, whereas Elisabeth's intercalary days were referred to as Leapyear Day and Worldsday, an English-language Acceptance calendar might include a Love Your Neighbor Day and World Peace Day as days that cannot be called anything else because they are not days of the week. Such a calendar can become more than a mere matrix of days and turn itself, through wide usage, into a powerful spiritual tool.

All that a person need do in order to taste this power is to observe - indeed, celebrate! - an intercalary day in the name of Peace or Love. Taking oneself out of the neverending Monday to Friday, Saturday, Sunday drudgery of the globalized Gregorian calendar is a quiet, and yet supremely earth-shattering form of protest - one which this author has heartily embraced.

Please consider joining me in my simple protest. Take a day off for Love and Peace!

Samples of Fiction from The Gospel of Jesus H.

A picture of the planet Mars

An experimental science fiction Christology that makes Jesus the hard boiled narrator of his own early years on a bizarro earth made dark by volcanic ash and informally ruled by a man from Mars who sells bottled air.

Meanwhile, the Martian Governor-general was facing deep-seeded unrest. Constant and often violent opposition was coming from every single direction. Autocracy and corruption had so destroyed the Martian economy that massive inflation, shortages, and worst of all, separatism plagued Centropolis. Rich Martians blamed the Governor for doing nothing. Therefore, while the United Nations were busy with Sadatmo, the Governor-general's personal security service entered the historically-restive region of Elysium and forcibly evicted both protestors agitating for separation and the loyalist reformers who were willing to cooperate with Centropolis from the government offices that they had occupied. There was significant bloodshed.

Verse 128 from the chapter called Childhood

"God knew His servant was remiss: in granting my wish - my request for a sibling! - He knew I could only pay Him with ingratitude. He sends me a sister and I send her back! What wretched curse behooves my soul? Must I have chosen such a destiny? What fate conspires with wolves and dogs to make me find your broken neck? O wretched curiosity! (whose boon for Man far outstrips its bane!) Why sniff? So many things can be poison! What sensations must have twirled around your virgin head! They drove you to the open window - for air, no doubt (even though its unadulterated nourishment has long been lacking). What confusion must have taxed your noble mind, which only hours before had entertained simple thoughts of worship. 'Holy Mary! Mother of God!' you had said. 'Pray for us sinners: now and at the hour of our death.' She was waiting for you, child! You are with her now in heaven: with our Holy Mother Mary! God bless you, child! You are the instrument of my reformation! The lamb of my destiny! Tell your heavenly hosts that I remember: I have taken to heart - I understand this cryptic reminder of theirs. For too long have I lived in the company of dogs and wolves without lifting a finger in the face of their lies and confabulations. When I asked for you, beloved sister, I was devoted to the truth. We had sung the true words: this land is your land, we had sung. This land is my land. Fate will have to find all those wolves and dogs who conspired against you, child. My punishment has already been paid. There is no greater penalty for a lonely shepherd than his one and only lamb. But when your enemies meet their ends, beloved child, they will not have met a lonely shepherd, but an angry shepherd in wolf's clothing.

Samples of Fiction from Sex for Children

A drawing of a man between a woman's legs in front of another man in a hospital bed

A literature book narrated by a pair of siblings on either side of the Atlantic whose profoundly weird sexual experiences pose a serious challenge to their traditional understanding of mathematicians, marriage, gay young men and God.

Oh my dear sister: if you are reading this, you already know under what circumstances this document must be written. I know that I will have called you, and you will most certainly have asked me what I've been doing, and I will undoubtedly have told you by the time you receive this letter that Albert is dying - but I have not yet told you, though I feel as if I were talking to you right now, and I must explain everything to you as if you were this paper, as if it were part of your body, the excess of your skin, temporarily grafted onto this cheap writing surface so that my pen, the natural extension of my steady hand, could make its furtive inscriptions, gently massaging your senses, while I prepare to hurt you, to harm your gentle skin, to break your heart by incising the horrible truth of my situation.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 2, Poetics, Paragraph 2

I do not know if I can do them justice. I am also afraid because they do involve you, my sister. But perhaps, if I can explain their nature first, you will not be so offended. Indeed, I feel as though you are much more prepared to understand my visions than anyone else. Reading your letter, I wonder whether you might not sometimes experience a similar phenomenon. But I am getting ahead of myself. I should begin by describing these things to you.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 4, Self-image, Paragraph 6

On the other hand, I must not forget that I am sitting at the end of the private ward: most of the nearby patients are very rich people; they are probably educated; I'm sure that among them there is more than one pretender to a laurel crown; and together, they form a rather appreciative literary audience.

– Title 3, Regarding a Dream, Chapter 1, The First Day, Part 1, Victory & Calendar Reform, Section 3, Wondering, Paragraph 1, Clause 1

Right now, it's still Monday morning; the sun is shining through the window: there's nothing mournful about that: it's the sign of a new beginning, the promise of a fresh week to start work, to exercise oneself before the freedom of a Friday afternoon claims the flesh. Perhaps these orderlies will shake themselves free and wake up before Albert does, but I doubt that.

Bullets whizzing by a statue of Nikola Tesla

Nor did he expect how ridiculous he would feel, smiling down at the naked ladies, each with their beautiful round shoulders and lovely ankles exposed, as he tried to get the dog out from between each of their legs flashing each of them his badge and saying to each of them, "Excuse me, ma'am. Police business." The mortification was short-lived.

The Body Acceptance Calendar

A really good idea for a monthly calendar

If a 45-year-old businesswoman and hard working mother of three kids is going to pose nude for a calendar, it's gonna have to be a good one. Margo didn't start a coffee shop called the Vagina Cafe to win her favors from the establishment. Even as she dishes out prizes to the 20 women who placed last in the twentienth anniversary run of her town's biggest road race, her business, unlike everyone else, doesn't get mentioned. She was an official sponsor for Christ's sake! But the announcer just couldn't swallow his patriarchy and get the words "Vagina Cafe" out of his mouth. That's not something a proper gentleman would say in front of a crowd of humble God-fearing "ladies" who cherish their modesty! And a Body Acceptance Calendar is certainly not what a humble God-fearing book-seller like a Barnes and Noble would put on their shelves! So how do I expect to sell this in the mainstream? Maybe if you download the free versions a thousand billion times it might help. Start downloading.
