Event Mode Features a 2-D Calendar-Clock Face.
A two dimensional Calendar-Clock may provide less information than a 3-D Calendar-Clock, but it provides more functionality in Event Mode. You simply Drag the “Wheel of Time” to set the time and date. There are 3 different drag zones:
- Drag the Hour Hand (inside the 24 hour Number Dial) 15º per hour, one revolution per day. The Earth revolves at a rate of 1º every 4 minutes.
- If you want to set a date in the near past or future, drag the Calendar Band at a rate of one revolution every 2 months.
- Drag the Zodiac Band one revolution per year, if you want to set a date in the distant past or future. The years unfurl as fast as you can spin.
The Astro Mode Table provides you with both astronomical and astrological information. Each Sign of the zodiac extends 30º along the ecliptic, starting with the first sign Aries which begins at the ascending equinoctial node (0º right ascension).
For the illustration, the Sun is 27.92º through the 4th sign of the zodiac, Cancer. The Sun’s right ascension (measured along the celestial equator) is 120º and its declination (elevation above or below the celestial equator) is 20.63º. Every moment in time MONAD generates the equivalent of an astronomical or astrological chart.
Record Health Events as a Chronobiological Health Journal.
Tap the [Event] button to get from Astro Mode to Event Mode. (Pinch the screen to get back to Astro Mode.) MONAD in Health Event Mode is based on the principles of Chronobiology, a field of biology that studies periodic (cyclic) phenomena in living organisms and their adaptation to solar- and lunar-related rhythms. The 4 health event categories used in MONAD are [Sleep], [Eat], [Move] and [Think], and if you document your day in terms of these activities, you are documenting your essential biorhythms. MONAD displays your personal biorhythms in the context of the planetary biorhythms of the Earth’s biosphere. This parallel display allows you to align your personal life with the planetary, which is important if you want to achieve real, long-lasting health.
Once you have a collection of “Day Charts” to consider, you will be able to look for health patterns, with an opportunity to align your personal biorhythms with the rhythms of the Earth and solar system; the seasonal year, lunar month & solar day. This practice of alignment with nature is the heart of health. MONAD also serves as the ultimate Festival Timer, for celebrating important agricultural/ecological rhythms that sustain our interconnected lives here on planet Earth. MONAD: where mindfulness & productivity come together.
MONAD is synchronized with the Apple Health app. Health data (like Steps and Sleep times) imported from the Apple Health app (HealthKit) is used for display within the MONAD app. When you carry an iPhone, your Steps are recorded automatically and Step Wedges are shown in purple (part of Move), between the numbers of the 24 hour Number Dial and the inside surface of the dial. Placement of Step Wedges can be very helpful in helping you remember the activities of your day.
Record and Schedule Regular, Calendar Events.
Tap the Calendar button (between [Eat] and [Move]) to get to Schedule Mode for ordinary Calendar events. Import your ordinary calendars into MONAD and make them extraordinary. Eventually, you will be able to import as many as four different color-coded calendars at any one time. MONAD helps you achieve your goals, de-clutter your mind, and create a record of events as detailed as you choose to make it.
Coming Soon: We will be adding Event Manager with numerous different features to make MONAD the only Calendar-Clock scheduling program you will ever need. Weekly, Monthly & Yearly calendars will be integrated into this analog – digital format. All day events will have their own special screen, easy to access and organized into four categories: Planet, Family, Tribe & Nation. Planet includes planetary, astronomical events like equinoxes, solstices and weather. Family is where you record birthdays and anniversaries. Tribe is where you access work, sport, church and other group calendars. Nation includes National holidays we all celebrate.
Both Health and Scheduled events can be recorded in the now. You can schedule regular events in the future, but Health Events cannot be created or moved into the future; only in the now or in the past. Learn How to operate the Event Recording features of MONAD. Start building Day Charts right away. Additional instructions will be added as more features become operational.
Tap Into The Power Of NOW.
MONAD offers a new experience of now. Create (“Start”) events now; “End” events at a later now. When you see “Rec •” underneath the [NOW] button, that indicates an Event Wedge is building. While the event is building (or recording), you can edit the event, add text to the Title, Location or Notes fields, even adjust the Start time. Only thing you can’t edit is the End time, except by tapping [STOP], which stamps whatever time it is now as the End time. Then you could go back and edit the End field, if you want to, contracting or expanding the Event Wedge.
Recording an event in the now more accurately reflects the actual occurrence of events instead of their scheduled (anticipated) occurrence; documenting “what is” instead of what is “supposed to be.” Scheduled events don’t always begin and end when they are scheduled to begin and end.
Recording an event in the now encourages you to have more presence in you life. The more you use MONAD to record the events making up your life, the more you will see the patterns of your life, and until you make these patterns conscious, you will not be able to change them. If you want to make healthy changes in your life, first get a handle on what your life looks like, in planet-centered space-time.
Memory Enhancement Through MONAD.
It’s quick and easy to document your day, making MONAD the ultimate memory enhancement device. It’s easier than keeping a written journal and provides more context. Start by recording (in Health Mode) your sleep period; it takes just a few seconds before you go to bed and after you wake up. Meals are just as easy, and it is quite enlightening to thoroughly and accurately record not only the times you eat but the content of your meals. When you eat can be just as important as what you eat.
Use the Move Category to record not only physical exercise like going for a walk or playing tennis, but also transportation, like when you go shopping or driving in a car here and there. Just make the Title memorable and add Notes as needed and it’s easy to scan back through your Day Charts and remember what you did that day.
Create Complex Event Records.
Eventually (Coming Soon) you will be able to create very complex, well organized Event records (an archive), adding photos, videos, a record of phone calls and financial transactions related to the event, links to people, places and other events. Just Tap the Tall button and the Event Screen drops down (“Short” to “Tall”) to reveal all the details of an event; you may need to scroll through the event if it’s well documented.
For instance, if I was recording a business lunch, I would link the client [People] with the purchase [ $ ] of the meal as a business expense. If I take a picture [Camera] of the meal, a thumbnail photo would show up next to the button. If I make a phone call [Phone] on behalf of my client, a record of the call would show up next to that button.
MONAD is already set up to be voice activated; just tap the microphone button (in Event Edit Mode) and talk to your phone and fill in the selected event fields, and you can create as detailed a memory aid as you require.
