My view is that the precession hypothesis is entirely holistic.  The whole in question is how the earth physically relates to the cosmos.  The overall order of life on earth sits within the whole of time and space, but the immensity of infinity and eternity can only be properly encountered or imagined through a mediating whole, which for the origins of Christianity is the temporal structure of precession, which encompasses the whole relationship between the earth and the sun. 

 

There is a further astronomical dimension of this work that I have not mentioned that helps to explore this problem of the whole.  One part of my analysis is how precession relates to the integrated motion of the whole solar system, which has a wave function with period precisely one twelfth of a zodiac age.  NASA calculated this motion, defined as the distance of the sun to the solar system barycentre.  I produced this diagram depicting the NASA data, which integrates the whole of the mass of the solar system over the whole period of six thousand years from 3000 BC to 3000 AD.

i think i see what you are saying.  that it is a whole system of thought, and holistic within itself?  i don't know alot about it i guess but i wonder if this system takes into consideration things like all the different religions in the world, for instance, interest and beliefs and practices of spirituality in the world and religions, possibilites of truth, ect.

Your point about being systematic is key.  Systematic logic is based on making assumptions clear.  My assumptions involve high respect for materialist science, seeing all supernatural claims as allegory for natural observation.  Precession provides a heuristic for explaining in systematic terms how our planet relates to our cosmos, at the wholistic level of the entirety of human history.

My view is that it is essential to have respect for cultural diversity, recognising that we cannot simply dismiss a tradition that we do not understand.  And even when we think we understand it and dismiss it, there is often value in different religions that is not immediately obvious.   There have to be strong moral grounds for opposing a belief system on principle.  In that context of respect, my view is that there are a number of religious beliefs that are definitely immoral and should be opposed, such as support for cannibalism, slavery or young earth creationism.

 

I hold to the logical axiom that a statement cannot be true and false.  So when different traditions contradict each other, the reconciliation between their views often has to be at a higher order.  For example different concepts of God can reflect misunderstandings of reality that can be reconciled by seeing the conventional language as symbolic rather than literal.
