With little basis and plenty of imagination .All the transgenerational beings I have met have proved to be bored and boring and with no interest in "encoding " anything , their real interests are in counting calories and watching tv .

You can't make up terminology and then expect others to have a meaningful discussion .

Only on a software prog ,and not in the real world . You have still not managed to explain how it was calculated ,it is certainly useless and I defy you to provisde an example of it's use from any astronomical text ancient or modern .

New York didn't exist in 2580 BC ,it was a swamp .
Heliopolis did and taking the bearing from the summer solstice rise or set didn't "lead " to New York , but it , equally underwhelmingly , to Shanghai .

Starry Night does not tell you the azimuth from anywhere to anywhere else .You can work out the the zero altitude of the sun rise or set and then take that bearing and transfer it into GE. If you do ,you might note that the line also goes through Naples ,another underwhelming fact .

By assuming zero horizons all the time it is apparent you are unaware of how to calculate the correct bearing for a solstice event . In the case of horizons that are lower than the observing point the correct altitude is not 0 ,but due to refraction it is actually less than than zero ,and of course in this case , Heliopolis is not on the horizon .
