I almost decided to re-record this episode but then I noticed that it was 1:08:01 (108 forward and backwards!) and I finished saying “One hour and eight minutes” right at 1:08! The universe approved!

00:00 – Introduction

01:30 – The new calendar I created for myself

  • It’s all cycles. 108-day cycles, then 108 cycles of 108 day cycles (108.108 or 36 years), then 108 cycles of 108 cycles of 108-day cycles (108.108.108 or 3,888 years). The math is 1 cycle takes ⅓ of a year so 108 * ⅓ = 36 years and then 36 * 108 = 3,888 years.
  • There are roughly 12 days in between each cycle to reflect and plan making them roughly 120 days. This is how they comfortably fit inside of 365 days.
  • The end of Cycle 1 (1.108.108) will be in 2054 (2*54 is 108 🙂 ), I’ll be 75 years old. The end of Cycle 2 (2.108.108) will be in 2090, I’ll be 111… maybe I can make it!

04:46 – Why 108 days?

07:15 – Why the number 108?

  • I continue talking about why 108 days.

11:36 – Taiwan’s calendar…

…aka The Republic of China calendar (Chinese: 中華民國曆) or Minguo calendar (Chinese: 民國紀年) from Wikipedia

  • 2021 = 110 Minguo, 2019 = 108 or 1.1.1 Flow and Dream Time

13:22 – Time and Calendars Rant… lol

19:32 – Going in deeper into the number 108

  • The Sexagenary cycle (Wikipedia) aka Stems-and-Branches. It’s where the Xinhai in Xinhai Revolution comes from.

Casey’s bootleg history of 108.

  1. Yellow River Shamanism
  2. Yu the Great
  3. Wuism
  4. Daoism
  5. The blending of religious ideas (Shamanism, Taoism, Buddhism, and Confucianism) until the fall of the Qing dynasty
  6. Those ideas evolving into the Republic of China
  7. Those ideas fleeing to Taiwan as the Cultural Revolution destroyed “The Four Olds” (Old Ideas, Old Culture, Old Habits, and Old Customs)
  8. 108 and Flowism

28: 35 – 108 Zip Code Wanhua District (Wikipedia)

32:01 – Pan-African Flag Emoji, Flags, and Symbols

Pan-African Flag (Wikipedia)
  • 道 from Daoism in Red, Black, and Green (Instagram) Instagram accounts of photographer and models are at the bottom of the post
  • The Eight Banners (Wikipedia) were administrative and military divisions under the Later Jin and the Qing dynasty of China into which all Manchu households were placed.
Flag of the Qing Dynasty (Wikipedia)

43:40 – Shamanism, Taoism and 108

  • Correction: 108 degrees is the inside angle of a pentagon, not a pentagram
  • 6 (touch, taste, hearing, seeing, smelling, consciousness) * 3 (pleasant, painful, neutral) * 2 (internal or external) * (past, present, future) = 108

52:55 – About Flow to Your Dream and this podcast

  • “The Five Percenters: Islam, Hip-hop and the Gods of New York” (Amazon)
