They are said to have been sons of the Celestial Emperors, and fathers of the next KI, all of which are sometimes per- sonified. They must liave been the primitive rulers of the Lowlands which were called Earth in oppo- sition to the Celestial Mountains. To them is ascribed the discovery of the solar year of 12 months of 30 days, makini^ the -year of StiO days, as it was before the flood. 3.

Their duration is extended to45,606years, which if reduced to moons, would be only S508 years. These GIN or men appear to be the Jins or Oe- nis of the primitive Arabs and Per- sians, who came in contact with them in East Imalava and Iran, fa- mous in antediluvian history as good and beneficent beings, friends of the Peris, the ancient Iranians or That these TIEN, TI and GIN were not KI periods, but rather SHI or families of mankind, is evident by no Dynasties being numbered among them. They are often col- lectively made a Rl named San- hnangi but then the U-long form the second KI, while the third has no name and therefore no existence. I rather consider them as the three first KI, either implying three periods, or three divisions of man- kind. And I find a fourth division in the U-LON
