Thank you so much for this divine excerpt R³. Years ago, I came across this small hard-cover book at the Library of Congress in DC. The essay written by our JC, was a doozy. I read it over and over again and didn’t make much progress but left it to go back and read it. (As prophesied in The Poetic Edda,)

Excerpted from Joe’s Essay:

Comparing this remarkable genealogical fantasy with Berosso’s equally bizarre list of the years of reign of the antediluvian kings, and totaling the two, we find as follows:

  Berossos                                      Genesis 5 and 7.6
Antediluvian            Years of                    Antediluvian              Years to

 kings                         reign                          patriarchs          begetting of sons

1.   Aloros             36,000                       Adam                         130

2.   Alaparos          10,800                       Seth                           105

3.   Amelon            46,800                      Enosh                           90

4.   Ammenon         43,200                      Kenon                          70

5.   Megalaros         64,800                    Mahalalel                      65

6.   Daonos            36,000                       Jared                          162

7.   Eudorached       64,800                      Enoch                        65

8.   Amempsinos     36,000                   Methusela                    187

9.   Opartes            28,800                     Lamech                          182

10. Xisuthros            64,800              Noah, yrs. to flood:           600

[ = Ziusudra ]       432,000                                                            1,656

Between the totals of Berrosos and the compilers of Genesis 5-7, there is apparently an irreconcilable difference. However, as demonstrated over a century ago in a paper, “The Dates of Genesis,” by the distinguished Jewish Assyriologist Julius Oppert, who in his day was know as the “Nestor of Assyriology,”(6) both totals carry 72 as a factor, this being the number of years required in the precession of the equinoxes for an advance of 1 degree along the zodiac. 432,000 divided by 72 = 6,000, while 1,656 divided by 72 = 23. So that the relationship is of 6,000 to 23. But in the Jewish calendar, one year is reckoned as of 365 days, which number in 23 years, plus the 5 leap-year days of that period, amounts to 8,400 days, or 1,200 seven-day weeks; which last sum, multiplied by 72, to find the number of seven-day weeks in 23 x 72 = 1,656 years, yields 1,200 x72 = 86,400, which is twice 43,200.”

In those days, the Library provided a cassette recorder and cassette tapes of Joe’s unheard (unknown to me) lectures. In one lecture Joe explains what Jung means by the term  “collective conscious/collective unconscious” – That Jung meant two different things when he introduced the term. Marianne is aware of this distinction.  Would love for you (Marianne ) to elaborate upon this distinction, if you happen to see this.

Thank you
