It is a surprising number revealed on **Sumerian tablets in
cuneiform handwriting **(that is to say a writing engraved with a stiletto in corner), found
in 1873 by a young English called **SMITH in the vicinity of Mossoul close to Bagdad in Iraq**.
This number will be called henceforth ** "the Ninive's Constant"**, from the name of the hill where was discovered these tablets whose the quantity was next to, at this the period,
about **33 000 units**.

## **II) The Constant of Ninive.**

This number comprised, by translating it in our decimal system, a length
of **15 figures** and that was giving:
** N = 195 955 200 000 000.
**This number represents therefore exactly 195 955 billions
to which it is necessary to add again 200 millions, more than the distance of the Earth to the Sun, if the we had the bizarre idea to express it in
millimetres. After having introduced it in a computer, **Maurice Chatelain** discovered that
this number N is equal to **70 x 60 power 7**. Then he discovered in addition
that N equalled very exactly **2268 millions of days of 86400 seconds**
each: 24 x 60 x 60= 84600. So **N = 2 268 000 000 x 86400**.

**The precession of the equinoxes** that is at
the origine of the turning of the axis of rotation of the Earth around of the ecliptic's pole
in **9 450 000 days** is approximately all **25920 years
**, was a phenomenon well known by the Sumerians, although this is a difficult fact fto observe,
because the variation **runs only on 1 degree for 72 years**.
This long period of 25920 years being furthermore divided in exactly
**twelve zodiacal periods of 2160 years**.
(After **the era of Pisces**, we enter currently
in the Aquarius'era therefore for **2160 years**.)

It was then that Mr Maurice
Chatelain **had the shock of his life** by discovering that
2268 millions of days *represented
exactly 240 cycles of precession of equinoxes of 9 450 000 days each of 84600 seconds*.
In other words the Ninive's number represented for the sumerians, **240 cycles of rotation of the seasons
around of the zodiacal band**, but expressed **in time by seconds, instead of the to be in
days or in years** as modern astronomers make it.In short, this huge number, tells us M. Chatelain,
**could not be else only the great constant of the solar system** that the alchemists,
astrologers, and astronomers have tried of to discover since close **to 2000 years**, while, however odd it may be, their
ancetors knew it since more than **3000 years**.
**so N= 240 x 9 450 000 x 86 400.
**

Mr. Chatelain discovered also that **N = 671 x 3 380 000 x
86 400**. But *3 380 000 of days represent 19 conjunctions of Pluton-Neptune, 54 conj. of Neptune-Uranus,
204 conj. Uranus-Neptune, 466 conj. Saturn-Jupiter, 4140 Jupiter-Mars, 10122 Mars-Venus,
23382 Venus-Mercury.*

In addition **Mr.Chatelain** discovered that 2268 millions
of days represent exactly **90720 x 25000** that is to say
25000 cycles of **the sidereal revolution of Pluton**
if the former was of **90720 days** instead of to be of **
90727 ** days
as think current scientists. But seeing that Pluton has not even carried out a **fifth of its
revolution around of the Sun**, a light error of **7 days in our calculations
** would be entirely excusable
**in view of the few information whose the sientists**
has got currently on Pluton.

**III The Mayas'constants. **

On the other hand Mr.Chatelain
discovered equally, very strange thing, that **the Mayas possessed also two other numbers still
greater than the Ninive's N**.-** 34 020 millions of days**, that is to say **15 times**
the Ninive's N.-**147 420 millions of days**, that is to say
**65 times the Ninive's N**.
These constants represent similarly, of periods of revolutions and of conjunctions of the various
planets **longer than those already evoked**.

**IV Conclusion**

In conclusion all this, **leaves no doubt on the fantastic qualities of the sumerian
and maya astronomers** and gives us a supplementary proof of **the fabulous past that is
attached to the vanished civilizations of our planet**.
