I have explained several times the 'position of confusing status' as to WHAT does 'metric time' or the word METRIC may mean:
"METRIC - pertaining to the length unit, Metre, and not 'Decimalised division of Units & units & measures 'counted in multiples & sub-multiple of units/quantities, unless related to length unit metre'. This is what has so
far caused to the failure of SI Metric Units - especially TIME!"
I provided the definition of Nautical Kilometre in my base contribution on bridging the Arc-Angle in my contribution The Metric Second; 1973 April; Beauru of Indian Standards, New Delhi. My 'Decimalised Time
of the HOUR' is a step in that direction; VI's linking the division of HOUR (in time) and Hour-Angle (as the Earth moves in its axis) i.e. The Quadrant (in angle).
Is clearly an attempt to stall the issue for Reform of calendar in defining the 'new time interval'. I provided & discussed the concept
of Nautical Kilometre, in my projection of 24-hour day & 'Decimalised Time of the HOUR'.
I am sure World Intellectual Property Organisation (WIPO) is aware of my Home Page:
http://www.brijvij.com: where in I have placed my contributions since 1971-73 through media/concerned Organisations in India and now in United States since mid-2002....and continuing.
I do seek protection of my contributions, possibly getting infringed upon.
Today was Memorial Day and I wish my progressive feelings for Indo-American Socio-Scientific & Politico-Economic Reforms to take the right boost, in making America a Great Nation to join and lead involvement of Time & Calendar -
the Metric Way!
My calendar proposal as Brij-Gregorian Modified Calendar is a step in that direction, an attempt to keep improving my several formats of calendars - to be & remain in discussion. I recall having projected some of my ideas earlier
Karl, sir (in Private): My apology, while typing I did the mistake again, and typed TITHI incorrectly without realizing the 'slight addition of 1m29s.3285493' over the DAY duration in TITHI value; which make the difference in calculation. Use of Tithi value, change the Mean
Lunation value=29d12h44m2.99669089959156-seconds. "Thus correct position is to add '0.5 day over 448-years' getting (163629 days/5541 moons) to result in Mean Lunar value of 29d12h44m2s.98863021153221; which is an improvement over the Hebrew Lunar calendar of 29d12h44(+1/18)m".
