What was being asked related specifically to the thema mundi chart. Any discussion on creation and the thema mundi charts involve a philosophical (and often theological) construct that has nothing to do with actual events whether they relate to humankind or not. Strictly speaking, thema mundi is Latin for theme of the universe/world. It is representative of the coming of the world into existence.

You do not have to use the Bible for timing any more than you would use Ennuma Elish for timing except as a philosophical construct. If you look at any creation myth you will find that the world (and, therefore, the thema mundi chart) was created prior to the creation of human beings. As was pointed out earlier, Firmicus Maternus clearly stated in Matheisis that the thema mundi chart was not to be taken as a literal chart but rather as a teaching tool, particularly as it related to the exaltation of the planets. It was never meant as a chart to use in mundane events in the way that a chart might be used for the birth of a nation.

Ahhh, thank you for the explanation. It seems to me that it would be a very imprecise tool.

Was discussed at the Conclave satisfactorily -- considered a teaching tool, Schmidt showed how to use it.

BUT -- I find the Kali Yuga Inception chart 18 February 3102 BC -- all the planets within 41 degrees -- rumored to be observed in situ, impossible since everything but Saturn and Mercury under the beams. The planets are all grouped about Revati which is 29PIXX -- cast it for midnight for a place on the Indus.
