Chinese Sexagenary Cycle
LiuShi HuaJia (六十花甲); "6(x)10(=60) blossoms or fancy pattern of shells" is constructed of the GanZhi (干支) cyclic numeral system of 60 combinations of the two basic cycles, the 10 Heavenly Stems (天干; TianGan) and the 12 earthly branches (地支; DiZhi) similar to the Sumerian sexagesimal base-sixty numeral system with 60 as the base. Sexagesimal is also used in measuring angles, geographic coordinates and time. The official LiuShi HuaJia (六十花甲) Chinese sexagenary cycles begin in BC AYN 2636 with the 1st/78 cycles, so BC AYN 2696 begins the Chinese sexagenary cycle designated 0 and all previous cycles are designated with a minus sign before the number of the cycle. Likewise the JiaZi (甲子) sequence notation in the Universal Syphers™ and WikiSyphers begins using 0:00 for the 0 sexagenary period of BC AYN 2696-BC AYN 2637: 00-59, while others may use 1:00.
Ecclesiastical Lunar New Year
According to the Chinese Classic of History (書經) called; pinyin: ShangShu (尚書; HanGul pinyin: SangSeo 상서); “esteemed documents,” ShenNong (神農) is the 2nd/3 Sovereigns or august (皇: “Huang”) emperors.
In the Hebrew alphabet the letter Samekh (ס) has an acrophonic object meaning of “establish or support” as in a vine tutor in Egyptian or a prop or stand. Samekh (ס) is the Hebrew numeral or gematria of 60. This 60 is the calibrating reference source of the sexagenary cycle of 60 years each, starting with ShenNong as a sort of Chinese Adam in BC AYN 2696.
Aleph (א) is the Hebrew numeral or gematria: 1 the alternative meaning of the Sumerian ideograph for 60, and the first letter of the Hebrew alphabet whose acrophonic object meaning is “ox.” The “first letter” as the ox totem is the another indicator of ShenNong (神農) as a Chinese Adam; the first entity to whom the Chinese trace their lineage historically.
ShenNong and FuXi
With ShenNong (神農) as the Chinese Adam it is easy to determine the Chinese serpent as FuXi (伏羲, (בחשי) who is associated with the serpent (נחש) as both terms in Hebrew have same root-stem HSh (חש). FuXi is often depicted with the lower body of a serpent (נחש); a “snake-body and human head.”
1st Sexagenary Cycle
Some modern authors assign the 1st year of the 1st cycle of the LiuShi HuaXia (六十花甲) or GanZhi (干支); "sexagenary cycle" to BC AYN 2696 or (2697 BCE not including the astronomical year numbering A.Y.N.) for Year 0 for the transition between BC and AD or BCE and CE (GongLi 公曆; “common calendar”) stating that we are now in cycle 79 (AD 1984-2043), and this makes perfect sense since the Biblical Adam is used for the chronological dating—then ShenNong (炎帝) as the Chinese Adam should represent the traditional Chinese chronology of the GanZhi (干支) sexagenary cycles.
Battle of BanQuan
The Battle (Zhan) of BanQuan (阪泉之戰: BanQuan ZhiZhan) the BanQuan plain, near the southern border of the modern Nei Mongol Autonomous Region, approximately 150 kilometers (about 93 miles) northwest of modern BeiJing is credited for the formation of the HuaXia (華夏; “illustriously flowery summer”) tribe or confederacy (華夏族: HuaXiaZu); as distinct to other tribes such as the Miao (מיהו) and the DongYi (東夷). HuaXia is the basis of the Han Chinese (漢族: HanZu or 漢人: HanRen) civilization (feudal culture).
The ShenNong tribe originally was a branch of the nomadic people out of the west who entered the North China Plain. Generations later, the tribe was in conflict with other expanding tribes of the time], such as the JiuLi (גוריו: 구려, 九黎); “9 black, numerous or many,” tribe led by ChiYou (蚩尤) and the YouXiong (尤熊); a “particular bear” tribe led by the Huang (Yellow Emperor). As the Yan Emperor of ShenNong planned to invade the local tribes nearby, the tribes turned to the Huang, who raised armies against ShenNong.
The armies of Huang’s YouXiong (尤熊) clansmen (氏: Shi) under the totems of the Bear (熊: Xiong), the Brown Bear (羆: Da), the Fox (貔: Pi), the Brave (貅: Xiu), the Chu (貙); a “lynx” or “bobcat” and the Tiger (虎: Hu) met with the armies of ShenNong in BanQuan in the first large scale battle in the History of China. After three major engagements, the ShenNong forces lost the battle and made an alliance to the Yellow Emperor. The two major tribes then went on to form the HuaXia (華夏) tribe and integrate the small tribes around them.
Battle of ZhuoLu
The ever expanding HuaXiaZu (華夏族) tribe or confederacy (ethnic group) soon drew the envy of ChiYou (蚩尤), who attacked ShenNong’s territories. The HuaXia tribe then reacted by facing ChiYou in the Battle of ZhuoLu, and emerged victorious. The HuaXia tribe then could expand without hindrance and later formed what came to be known as the Han Chinese feudal culture civilization with the establishment of the Xia Dynasty (夏朝: XiaChao) in BC AYN 2172.
