Although this might be off-topic, I wish to point out to gotham a curious numerical result that I stumbled upon in my investigations and saw it in other independent sources.

The Metonic cycle is an approximate common multiple of three astronomical events (the solar day, the synodic month and the tropical year) that was known and used since the Antiquity. It says that:

19 tropical years = 235 synodic months = 6940 days.

This cycle is the basis of the Hebrew lunisolar calendar and the adopted Islamic lunar calendar. These calendars use whole intercalary months instead of days as in the Julian and Gregorian solar calendars. That is why different years have different number of days. If one divides 235 into 19 one gets a quotient 12 and a remainder 7. Thus, a regular year would have 12 months and there are 7 leap years in a 19-year cycle with one extra (intercalary) month. The number of days in a month is determined by dividing 6940 into 235. The quotient is 29 with a remainder 125. Thus, the months alternate in having 29 and 30 days such that there are 125 long months in a 235-month cycle. The short lunar year has 6 short and 6 long months and is 6 x 29 + 6 x 30 = 354 long.

Then, when trying to work out the metric of a uniformly accelerated disc, I found that it has a singular plane at a distance *c*^{2}/*g* below the origin. It takes light time *c*/*g* to travel this distance. The numerical value of this time is:

(2.998 x 10^{8} m/s)/(9.81 m/s^{2}) = 3.056 x 10^{7} s

To convert into days, we note that 1 day = 24 h x 3600 s/1 h = 8.64 x 10^{4} s

3.056 x 10^{7} s x 1 day/(8.64 x 10^{4} s) = 353.7 days ≈ 354 days

It is almost certain that this "coincidence" is a clue into the interplay between the motion of the Sun and the Moon and the mechanism of the UA. It might be a topic of serious research among such renown Zeteticists as gotham.
