Fraz,

I see that you are willing to allow Ebla calendars to jump to Minoa, and not the other way around, even though Ebla did not use binary arithmetic. Minoans are reported using Eeye of Horus binary fraction. Ebla used a base 60 arithmetic. Your scenario needs to be cleaned up a little.

It would be wonderful for scholars to better report Minoan Linear A arithmetic in a manner that decoded Minoan lunar calendars reported in narratives, and visa versa. Placing numbers on Minoan calendars requires better arithmetic decoding keys that you have reported.

Lunar calendars can offer fuzzy or clear doors to the past. Fuzzy 99-moon cycle calendars based on narratives improved in the ancient Near East in numbers within a range of cycles, connected to solar cycles, planetary cycles and great years. I wish a 135-moon cycle would be identified with 1100 BCE Egypt, just before the time when Libyan (Phoenician) Pharaohs came to power. Great year discussions may open discussion of Chinese great years that reached the ancient Near East by Silk Road trade.

History on several levels documents Canary Island mummification in the Egyptian manner beginning around 900 BCE. Phoenician Pharaoh's went into exile around 900 AD. Where did they go?

Possibly more important, mummification continued on the Canary Islands until 400 AD, a date that oddly links to the end of the Roman Empire, My head offers several fuzzy explanations that support the mummification fact.

That is, what trading activities supplied by which cultures empowered the mummification process on the Canary for 1,300 years? And why did mummification stop in 400 AD. Was this date a coincidence?

Placing mummification along side lunar calendarissues offers an interesting two-dimensional look at the Ancient Near East to the Canary Island region. How many traders of mummification products sailed back and forth to the Canary Islands?

Best Regards,

Milo Gardner
