Many will not need bearings, such as watches, after the pole shift. Some will use watches for
orientation. After a pole shift I expect everyone will be disorientated and dazed. I see
evidence that time was not kept well during the last pole shift, because one could not see the
sun or the moon and survival became tough. I think some will gain comfort from knowing how
much time passes as they see that, for year, every day is the same. If someone keeps track of
time until the sun and moon come back into view, then maybe our history will record when to
look for the next close passage of the 12th Planet some 3657 years later. There are some
navigational uses of clocks that become quite useful, keeping track of time while moving in a
If after the pole shift one measures the length of daylight in the day and uses a table one can determine Latitude. The longest days are when one is closest to the equator. One would measure first light to last light. Knowing ones Latitude one can determine average temperature from another table. If the days are getting longer then one is headed for warmer times. If days are getting shorter then one is headed for colder times. If one were to measure the length of daylight once a week over 6-8 months, then one could determine the new angle the Earth's rotational axis makes with the Earth's orbital plane. This angle is at present 23.4 degrees. This should be different after the pole shift and is expected to be less this time around. I plan to make or find the above two simple tables.
