24,000 years of humanity
When new spanners think of history, they
tend to consider only their closest surround,
or what they've heard about "ancient" times.
Humanity is much vaster than that recorded
by levellers in any given span. To this end,
novice spanners are reintroduced to the
The zodiac exists as a shorthand to human
eras during the Societies and just before, for
the benefit of spanners considering travel or
adventures in such times. It also tends to
broaden the minds of new spanners when
they consider that people- spanners and
levellers- are very much alive and active in
each of these times. Despite various
conflicting leveller astrological calculations,
the zodiacal eras correspond roughly to
2000 years each:
c. AD 2000 - 4000
The hallmark of this time is unity and self-discipline, and the inevitable
control over all the forces of the universe.
c. AD 1 - 2000
This is the time of the power of Rome, Christendom, and the crossing of
the oceans in great migrations.
c. 2000 - 1 BC
The era of independent states, each with aloof philosophies. The rise
of strategic warfare among levellers.
c. 4000 - 2000 BC
The perfection of cattle breeding and the worship of the corralled herd;
conformity in levellers and envy of level simplicity in spanners. The Hunt of the Sun
brought to an end.
c. 6000 - 4000 BC
A time of narcissist intrigue and great wars between spanners. Time
of the elder human gods known to later levellers.
c. 8000 - 6000 BC
Receding ice and rising seas are the themes of this span, and the hardness
of the people. The Hunt of the Sun begins.
c. 10000 - 8000 BC
The time of the first domestication of cats, and of the return of individual
prowess as a general standard.
c. 12000 - 10000 BC
The early Societies, of which much is secret, potential, and unwritten.
c. 14000 - 12000 BC
The era of decision and measured, meted justice. The collapse of
Antedesertium, Interregnum, and the Atlantean Councils.
c. 16000 - 14000 BC
The time of the narcissists seeking hellish chaos, revenge, and pain.
The great sickening of the level population.
c. 18000 - 16000 BC
A more noble time of Antedesertium, but determinedly at odds
with the Continuum.
