About


The New Universal Calendar is a proposal for a total reform of the internationally accepted Gregorian Calendar, Based on Julian Calendar (see about calendars). NUCAL Is a regular, easy to remember, non religious and non anti-religious stable way to organize time segments. NUCAL consists of 13 month each of 28 days and 4 weeks of 7 days, there is also a day not belonging to any month called Years Day.

THE NUCALENDAR YEAR

NUCAL also promotes changing the current Christian Era with historical dates in negative with the obsolete roman notation system of centuries, to the superimposed Eras system and the centurial notation. Finally NUCAL promotes a change in the starting and ending hours of the day.


NUCALENDAR WEEK


NUCALENDAR DAY

NUCAL compared to Gregorian Calendar
  • Every month has 28 days
  • All months have 4 equal weeks of 7 days
  • Every month starts on a holiday Monday
  • Every month ends in a Sunday
  • Each month is divissible by 2, 4 and 7
  • There are 3 consecutive holidays in every month
  • Each year starts on a holiday Monday
  • Each year ends and starts with 4 consecutive holidays
  • The names of the days of the week are multicultural
  • The names of the months promote Human Rights
  • The Centuries are coincidental in numbers with year digits
  • There are no negative dates (b.C.)
  • The day starts in the morning not in the midnight
The Eras system
There are 3 eras in NUCAL:
  1. The Era of History (EH) Starting on 10.001 b.C.
  2. The Era of Homo Sapiens (EO) Starting on 100.001 b.C.
  3. The Era of Mankind (EM) Starting on 1,000.001 b.C.
For example year 2018 is:
12018 (EH) and 112.018 (EO) and 1,112.018 (EM)
2018 is comprised in the 120th Centuria of the (EH) Era
No negative dates anymore. Very simple!

Rational NUCALENDAR day starting and ending hours versus present system




The NUCALENDAR does not stop in days counting, it is a proposal for a total reform in various aspects  of Calendars and time counting in general. NUCALENDAR proposes the use of the Three Eras System to refer dates.

The first Era system is the Era of History, based on the Holocenic Era of notable italian geologist Cesare Emiliani:

The Era of History EH starts its counting in the year 10000 b.C. (B.C.E) this is arbitrary and serves the purpose for an easier conversion. To convert from Gregorian to EH just add 1 to the left. I.e. 1500B.C.E is 11500EH.

The Era of Mankind EM starts its counting in the year 100.000 b.C. (B.C.E), to reffer dates prior to those included in the Era of Mankind. To convert from Gregorian to EH just add 11 to the left.

And finally the Era of Hominids EO starts in the year 1,000.000 b.C. (B.C.E). To convert from Gregorian to EH just add 111 to the left.
