ARISTEAN TIME ZONE©

 

This proposed Aristean Time Zone divides the world into 20 time zones. Following the Aristean Decimal Time where a day is 100 aristos long, the day starts at the present 6:00pm instead of midnight. The first 50 aristos are for the nighttime part of the day and the last 50 aristos are for the daytime part of the day.

 

Each time zone is 18 degrees longitude wide compared to the present 15 degrees. Hence, it is 20 percent wider and encompasses more of a country to just be under one time zone. A time zone has 5 aristos and is equivalent to the present 1 hour and 12 minutes.

 

The International Date Line (IDL) is located at 180 degrees West Longitude or 180 degrees East Longitude, or its new Longitude as 0 degree. It is in Zone 1 and is at the midpoint of the band of the Zone. This will have the reference time, military and aviation (may be called as Alpha time to avoid being confused with Zulu time) and astronomical (decimal part of the Julian-Aristean Time (JAT)) times. Even though the reference point is at IDL and there is no observatory there, the accurate time at IDL can still be maintained or kept at some observatories somewhere in the world.

 

If the world is made up of 360 degrees, the zero (0) degree Longitude or Prime Meridian is at IDL, and the counting is eastward.  And if the world’s Longitude is made up of100 units to make it decimal, likewise, the zero Longitude or Prime Meridian will be at IDL, and the counting is eastward.  In order not to be confused with Longitude, the meridian is called “aristitude”, the combination form of Aristean Longitude.

 

Letters of the alphabet, except I and O which could be confused with 1 and 0, respectively, are assigned to represent each time zone.  The letters have equivalent phonetic names, thus, zone 10 is K and its phonetic name is kilo.  This phonetic name aids clarity during voice communication.  To write the time, if the local time in Paris, France (Zone 11), for example, is 88.8 aristos, the letter of the time zone is appended to the time, thus, 88.8L.

Countries in Time Zones 1 to 20

 

If a country is almost divided in half by a time zone boundary, E(ast) and W(est) are used to indicate the part of the country in the Time Zone. If it is divided into three zones like Brazil, mid is assigned as well. The country decides the zone(s) it wants to adopt.

 

The following countries span at least three time zones:

  1. Brazil – three time zones, 7 to 9
  2. Canada – five time zones, 4 to 8
  3. China - three time zones, 16 to 18

Note:  Time in yellow-colored cells indicates a date one day earlier than that at the International Date Line.  Time in non-colored cells indicates the date is the same as the date at the International Date Line.

 

Aside from using the above preceding two tables, determining the time of a time zone can be calculated as illustrated in http://www.geocities.com/peacecrusader888/findtime.htm.
