DOG YEARS SQUARED (DY2)
DY2 is an formula designed to provide an alternative
perspective on the passage of time.
It is a formula inspired by the lives of our canine friends
the world-wide...good friends, who despite a
life-expectancy 7 times less then humans....
well, they just don't seem to care.
Travel back to the year 1 A.D., then move forward by converting years to
minutes using the military model. With this approach one hundred years is
represented by the passing of one hour on the military clock converting to
a compression of time perhaps better understood by the human mind if
only for the reason most, if not all, of us are not afforded enough time to
fully understand time relative to a universe developing incomprehensibly
As an example the year 450 A.D. converts to 0430 (or 4:30am DY2). The
year 1865 becomes (approximately) 1840 military or 6:40 pm. With the use
of the DY2 perspective we can view an event such as the death of
President Lincoln in 1865 as having occurred less then an hour and a half
ago relative to the present 2012 (shortly after 8pm)
(DY2 + 1) X 2= 60m
Dog Year (7) Squared (x7)= 49,
= 1hour/100 years
THE ACTUAL FORMULA...
1600 was a leap year, but 1700, 1800 and 1900 were not. Similarly, 2000 was a leap
year, but 2100, 2200, and 2300 will not be. By this rule, the average number of days
per year is 365 + 1/4 − 1/100 + 1/400 = 365.2425
