Enoch's Solar Calendar - Month V?

(Times & Seasons series: Post #XI)

Signs, Seasons, Days, and Years: # II (Enoch)1
Pondering Enoch's* Calendar?- #V2
According to the Book of Enoch, the sun continues southward, now rising and setting through East and West portal 5 for 30  days. My observation, over the past month or so, is that the sun's movement seems incremental and does not manifest a sudden jump to a new portal after a 30 or 31 days cycle.

Below is a PDF grid of what Month V (Five) might look like if we looked to the Book of Enoch instead of Pope Gregory (assuming, of course, that Enoch hasn't suffered text corruption — and who knows for sure?!). Day 1 of Month V, in theory, follows Day 30 of Month IV. Also, this Month Five follows the same pattern layout as Months Two, Eight, and Eleven. For the full year, repeating grid, see here.3

For those interested in what has happened in scripture / history during Month V [Gregorian July / August], here is a list. And if there is parallelism or déjà vu in times, seasons, and prophecy, could any of these recitations of date have any relevance to these last days? — (the last week of Daniel's 70 weeks?)

Calendar - Fifth Month (twelve references)
38 And Aaron the priest went up into mount Hor at the commandment of the LORD, and died there, in the fortieth year after the children of Israel were come out of the land of Egypt, in the first day of the fifth month.

Back to the Future, Again?

As the tyrannies of SOD activism,1 DEI- and CEIology,2 and ESG scoring3 weave their choking tentacles amongst peoples and corporations, perhaps it would be enlightening to revisit England and New England in the 1600s AD, and then ponder: Is the USian and global future going to be a technified déjà vu?

SOD, DEI, CEI, and ESG are but the latest invasive, strangling, creeper vines4 of aggressive power abuse and domination. Their bullying dogmas attempt to silence and strangle, just as the once-persecuted, New England zealots repeated with their new-world non-conformists.5

Take Roger Williams (1603-1683),6 the founder of Rhode-Island and passionate advocate of freedom of conscience who fled England with his wife in 1630 because he
knew any inquiry into his beliefs would doom him. Many who took far less extreme positions than he— Hooker among them— had already faced the High Commission. Some had only lost their livings, but others had gone to prison after enduring heinous physical mutilation.7
By October 1635, Williams had to flee Salem, Massachusetts under an order of banishment because, amongst other beliefs, he claimed:
The state ... had no authority to inject itself in any way into an individual’s relationship with God [and conscience]. It must enforce only the commandments in the “Second Table”: those which govern human relations, such as the injunctions forbidding murder, theft, lying, adultery, and covetousness.8
So, as we approach similitude to the mid-1600s, what are our latter-day equivalents (of 17th Century fining, banning, whipping, branding, cutting off ears, puncturing tongues with red-hot irons, imprisoning, and execution) for latter-day resisters of the coercive dogmas of SOD, DEI, CEI, and ESG?

None of these dogmas are progressive despite their pretentions. They are, at core, incredibly regressive and hypocritical as summarized here concerning DEI:
7 Ways Your DEI Initiatives Are Harming Your Company and How To Resolve It | Linked in | Brian Dapelo.9
1) DEI is discriminatory
2) DEI unnecessarily preferences physical attributes over the non-physical
3) DEI diminishes the size of the talent pool
4) DEI decreases performance
5) DEI is divisive
6) DEI diminishes accomplishments and disincentivizes performance
7) DEI is distracting
So what are we each going to do? stand with the real progressions of 20th Century Woke or the frauds and regressions of 21st Century Faux-woke10?

1. SOD: self-obsessed diva / divo activists. Genuine dysphorics just want to live their lives without demanding that the world affirm, applaud, and pay bending homage to their choice. They wish to attend social, sports, or other functions in their chosen persona without fanfare and without the narcissistic need to have the entire event and all actors, athletes, and audience roll out the pastel carpet in spectacular welcome, which, by the way, violates every one of their trumpeted mantras: diversity, equity, inclusion. Where is the diversity and equity in excluding everyone who is not SOD in the special recognition and affirmation of their lifestyle? Where is the DEI in their vociferous demands for special privilege and exemption from criticism or challenge or hurt feelings?

5. This year [1656] is made remarkable by the arrival at Boston, of several persons, of the new sect called Quakers.[ 298] They were imprisoned and banished. The books which they brought with them were seized and burnt. Severe laws were enacted to exclude them from the Commonwealth. In October, 1656, (says Hutchinson, vol. i. p. 181,) “An act passed, laying a penalty of one hundred pounds upon the master of any vessel who should bring a known Quaker into any part of the colony, and requiring him to give security to carry them back again; that the Quaker should be immediately sent to the house of correction, and whipped twenty stripes, and afterwards kept to hard labor until transportation. They also laid a penalty of five pounds for importing, and the like for dispersing, Quaker books, and severe penalties for defending their heretical opinions. And the next year, an additional law was made, by which all persons were subjected to the penalty of forty shillings for every hour’s entertainment given to any known Quaker; and any Quaker, after the first conviction, if a man, was to lose one ear, and the second time the other; a woman, each time to be severely whipped, and the third time, men or women, to have their tongues bored through with a red hot iron, and every Quaker, who should become such in the colony, was subjected to the like punishments. In May, 1658, a penalty of ten shillings was laid on every person present at a Quaker meeting, and five pounds upon every one speaking at such a meeting. Notwithstanding all this severity, the number of Quakers, as might well have been expected, increasing rather than diminishing, in October following, a further law was made for punishing with death all Quakers, who should return into the jurisdiction after banishment.”
By this sanguinary law, which passed the Court by a majority of one vote only, four persons were afterwards executed, and a large number were imprisoned, whipped, fined and banished, until an order from the King, Charles II. in 1661, put an end to these proceedings. The conduct of some of these persons was scandalous,[ 299] and deserved punishment, as offences against civil order and decency; but nothing can justify the severity with which some of them were treated. The impolicy of persecution was fully displayed on this occasion; for the Quakers multiplied, in proportion as they were threatened and punished.
The other united colonies passed severe laws against the Quakers; and they endeavored to prevail on Rhode-Island to unite in this general persecution. But she remained true to her principles. The General Assembly, which met at Portsmouth, March 13, 1657, returned an answer to the commissioners of the united colonies, in which they held this language:
“Whereas freedom of different consciences to be protected from enforcements, was the principal ground of our charter, both with respect to our humble suit for it, as also to the true intent of the honorable and renowned Parliament of England, in granting of the same to us, which freedom we still prize, as the greatest happiness that men can possess in this world, therefore we shall, for the preservation of our civil peace and order, the more especially take notice that those people, and any others that are here, or shall come among us, be impartially required, and to our utmost constrained, to perform all civil duties requisite. And in case they refuse it, we resolve to make use of the first opportunity to inform our agent, residing in England.” (Note: civil duty is not faith-based.)
