SEVEN CIRCLES OF TIME
When we see how Seven natural circles fit perfectly together, touching each other at Twelve points, while forming a symbol of Beauty (the Star of David) in their midst, we can see how these Seven were also present as a geometrical pattern in the mind of God before they were ever brought to bear upon the process of creation, the history of the world, or upon the doctrines of Israel. Seven 360-degree circles equal 2,520. This is the first number that all of the other numbers on the Tree of Life (1 to 10) divide into equally:
2,520 divided by 1 = 2,520
2,520 divided by 2 = 1,260
2,520 divided by 3 = 840
2,520 divided by 4 = 630
2,520 divided by 5 = 504
2,520 divided by 6 = 420
2,520 divided by 7 = 360
2,520 divided by 8 = 315
2,520 divided by 9 = 280
2,520 divided by 10 = 252
For a total of 7,381 which is a perfect number divisible by no other numbers but itself and One.
There is a story that relates how the 360-degree circle became the 365-day year, (aside from a more accurate account of the Solar year that is):
"Osiris was the offspring of an intrigue between the Earth god, Seb, and the Sky god, Nut. The Greeks identified his parents with their own deities Cronus and Reah. When the Sun god Ra perceived that his wife Nut had been unfaithful to him he declared with a curse that she should be delivered of a child in NO month and in NO year...
But the goddess had another lover, the God Thoth or Hermes as the Greeks call him, (and Moses as we call him), and he, playing at draughts with the Moon, won from her a seventy-second part of every day, (20 minutes). And having compounded FIVE whole days out of these parts he added them to the Egyptian year of 360 days.
This was the mythical origin of the Five supplementary days which the Egyptians annually inserted at the end of every year in order to establish harmony between Lunar and Solar time. On these Five days, regarded as outside the year of Twelve months, the curse of the Sun did not rest, and the child was born on the first of them." The Golden Bough, p.421.
