**Question:**

Will there be a Timemap next year? Should I get one for this year when we’re about half-way through?

**Almine:**

Every year the *Timemap* interpretation gets a little more advanced, a little more intricate. It is important to gain familiarity with this year’s before moving into next year’s.

Secondly, every August I start receiving three-dimensional images of next year’s Timemap, that usually takes me about five months to figure out how to translate to a two-dimensional surface. It always seems so impossible at first.

This has already started for next year’s *Map*. From what I can see so far, there isn’t only the challenge of creating a two-dimensional image of a three-dimensional occurrence of time, but also of a Timemap that spans two-dimensions — one in which time flows backwards in relation to the other. So far this is what I know besides the visionary imagery:

**The 2019 Timemap**

It has to have 347 days

2016 – 355 days equals 4

2017 – 384 days equals 6

2018 – 354 days equals 3

2019 – 347 days equals 5

Total: 1,440 days

We have over four years mapped out the pulse of the universe. Once the 1440 days of the Timemap have passed (January 17, 2020), the synchronization with the Chinese Calendar ceases.

Christel says

Hm..and 1440 divided by 4 ( 4 years) is 36.. 3+6=9.. number 9 the number of completion.. but does that mean for china

In 2020?
